Hello I'm Jeff,

I recieved a email from Ekaterina on August 6, 2002 on the singles web site She was listed as Kater on this site and told me that she was single and had many friends that were married. She too wished to have a marrage but there was no good men in Russia to marry. She also stated that here grandparents were Royalty and that they had been killed by the communist. I started to think that she was a scammer when she told me that her grandmother was happy that she had found someone that she cared for. She started telling me that she was a virgin and that she was having sexual dreams about me. She then said that she could not live without me and asked for $390.00 to appy for a B-2 visa. She stated that she would pay me back for the cost of the visa when she reached the United States. A B-2 Visa will only allow a person to visit for pleasure and she said that she would want to get a job right away. She also asked for me to send the money through Western Union. She asked me to send here the 10 numbers to get the money and asked for it to be sent as soon as possible.


I have attached photos that were sent to me of the person claiming to write the emials. 



I found the same letters listed on several sites with different names I hope this will help.

Hello my new friend Jeff !!!
You would know how many pleasures to me have brought that you have  answered me!
Now I understand, that people in your country really responsible ! 
Today I came into computer club and have scanned some the images and with this letter I send them 
to you, I hope, that I to you like. I directly would like to learn more about you to learn your 
interests as you live as you work. I am very glad to have such friend, as you. I in life very 
cheerful person and at me very responsible work as I already spoke, I work to help the bookkeeper, 
and I not in what a case should not make a mistake, both in work and in life I not less responsible 
person, I think, that the person should concerns to associates as wants that to it concerned. In my 
life was a lot of pleasure, but besides it is pleasure always stood on a number with more sad 
events. I never was for the husband and I have no children, but I very much would like them to have, but  from the person with whom our love would be mutual and that the child anything did not 
require. The main features of human character I think Sincerity, kindness, politeness and as I think, 
that the person it is necessary should be the respectable citizen with love to the country. I very 
much frequently see young pairs, I see as they are happy, I sincerely am glad for them, but thus I 
remain itself the person whom not loved At me when that was one friend, but it is little bit sad history, 
I was possible shall tell to you about it little bit later. I as like to be on a nature, there I  feel quieter. As other my hobby is domestic animals and in particular as I already spoke you my cat  Murka. On it I also shall finish the letter to you, and with impatience I shall look forward to  hearing. Your new friend from Russia

I write the letters from the Internet of cafe so be not upset if I shall not  answer you the letter at once, simply the Internet of cafe may be closed. Today I went to church,  today for me little bit sad date, this day my parents were lost. I orthodox christian, at us very  beautiful churches, at that moment when I am in church I feel quietly, me already cease, that or to  disturb. It is very interesting to me what weather at you today, I think, that at you should be warm.

kidneys on trees are dismissed. Birds who an autumn departed on the south arrive , but they again 
will return. The first grows a grass, many children leave on street and are pleased to this season. 
Children it future our planet and on them all our hope, does a pleasure me the big pleasure 
to observe of them. My parents educated me good formation as you know I has finished the Samara 
state university on a speciality the ecologist. But nevertheless I do not work on this speciality. 
Sometimes at me in life there come such times, that I seem to me, that already for whom it is not 
necessary, that I shall stay one, but nevertheless I calm myself and I believe that the main love in my life 
still will come, the god will help me with it. Tell to me more about itself, you like to listen to 
what your liked dish, what your liked film, what else music. My liked dish it pelmeni, this very 
tasty dish from Russian kitchen which consists of forcemeat of a beef and pork with an onions and 
spices wrapped up in a dough and are cooked. This really excellent dish. There may be sometime I of 
you him shall feed. My liked films it Gladiator and Angel city, is film about the big love when it 
was finished I very strongly cried if you of it did not look, look necessarily, it is  pleasant to you. As to music, she is pleasant to me different on mood, I as like Russian  classics Tchaykovskiy, Rohmaninov,
Rimskiy-Korsakov as it is pleasant to me Madonna, Enya, Kylie Minogue.  I think, that after that you

Katya's Letter № 8



Hi my love Jeffrey!!! I was very glad to receive from you the letter. When  I read your letter, at me even have appeared on eyes of tear of pleasure. I see that we are  necessary each other. Not seldom I
visit church, and I am asked for you and ours with you meeting. How you  there without me? I
here very much without you men. You in ideas always with me. You show  very strong interest to me it
very pleasantly to feel. I began very much to think of us with you that  waits for us ahead. Write to
me all questions which you interest. I shall be very glad to answer  to you them.. You now are, by
the second man in this world which to me is necessary most of all.  The first man is my mum. I very
much hope for that that our meeting the speed future is held. I am  very grateful to you that you
trust me. Through the Internet it is as that not naturally, we should  take each other in hands and
look each other in eyes and speak about that as the world is perfect.  At me very good mood. I want
to know all. To me you are very important. When I began to correspond  with you I had what that hope that at us with you all will be good. With each your letter I  understood that I have found that man
which to me is necessary. I as well as you want to see you believe to me very faster it it would be
desirable. I want to embrace you caress. I consider what exactly  creation of a spiritual emotional basis of the man and there is a purpose sense of family  education. I want to you to tell one that my feelings and the words in relation to you always were  sincerely and I always understood that we put a lot of trust, that our union would be when that real.  Now I am sure on all 100 that I can to you to trust. And you that man which to me are necessary.  When I read your letter I has seen in it your sincerity and fidelity to me. I have made of your  letter for myself the large conclusion which it is possible to express in three words " I  LOVE YOU ". Today I even felt so highly, at me all turned out so easily, because my ideas were  directed about you. I as knew when I think of you and you think of me and it warmed my soul and body. .  But we should trust each other, without it we simply can not exist. Today I had rehearsal with the  schoolboys. Rehearsal it when we prepared with children musical numbers, as tell poems. Today  with children to me was so ridiculously. Children are such perfect essences, when they in  small age. Today when I went on a road home, I thought of that as much to me to admit to you about it.  You see between us there should be a complete trust and we should know about each other all. You  probably think that I such not modern, but I consider that first time I should have affinity with 
the favourite man. At present at me the large inclination to you, I do not know why but it  is the truth. Sometimes such dreams dream me, that it is a shame to me to you to speak about it.  This dream has dreamed me today at night. " We have supper with you at you at home and then we go to  you in sleeping and we begin to be engaged with you love. " But in life I know about very little sex, 
only on television films and would like to learn maximal with you about it. Excuse that I speak 
with you so frankly, but I think that you should know about me all. I would be happy 
to visit you is a limit of my desires. Your love Kate
