Romance scam letter(s) from Maria Koroleva to Mark (USA)
Letter 1

Hi my new friend!
I was very glad when I has found out your letter in my mail box. It is so nice of you! I was waitong for your letter a lot!!! I at once bring my apologies for my mistakes in my structure and the last letter. I live in Latvia on border with Russia in city of Kraslava. I was born in Russia in city of Saratov. In the beginning of 90th years during reorganization we with parents have moved to Latvia because my father have transferred on work in this country. After we have moved Soviet Union has broken up also we have remained to live in Latvia. I never was behind borders of Latvia and Russia. As you already could understand, now I am 24 years. My birthday is September , 20, 1979. I hope that I'll find somebody, speccially for me who can share this day with me!!! A little bit about me. So as you could understand me I am almost 25 years old. I have brown eyes as you can see at my pic. My favorite color is blue. I love this color very much! I think that you can agree with me because this color is really great and it is suit for me very much!!! Please write me what is your favorite color and why, ok? I was not married. I think first of all I need to know anything about my man, to spend a lot of time with him and only then I think the time will come and I will be able to decide he is for me or not. I hope that you can understand me. Maybe it's not right but I am afraid of making mistakes. I understand that there is no life without mistakes but… Please, try to believe me and to understand me. I would like to know more about your family and to learn a little bit more in detail about your birth and did the origin of your family have historical character? There is in Latvia the people love to praise themselves, but it only on words. You probably would like to learn more in detail about my character as I want to know more about your character. I can tell about it only according to mine familiar. When I studied at university, my teacher of the English language spoke that I am too open, simple girl, that someone can take advantage of it in the purposes. I can tell precisely by myself that the sociable and purposeful woman. I love to be in a circle of the cheerful, clever friends. In a circle of the people which I communicate with, I have not found the man whom would be possible to connect the destiny with. So I am a the teacher at school, I teach Russian. Age of my pupils of 13-17 years. I work in female collective, where I hear about married life so many that as though itself married. Each day only also I hear how someone complains that the husband has not come home or drunk has come again. It is too hard for me to listen to their groans each day. It is very a pity of my friends and would like to connect the life with the man from another country where, to my opinion, is not present such an attitude to the women. It would be desirable to tell some words about my family. My family consists of four members. It is the mom, daddy I and my brother. We have a dog on nickname Rusty. I very much love domestic animals, am especial dogs. The daddy works the driver, the mum doesn't work. I have finished the university some years ago. You know that my student's years were the happiest in my life. And you, what can you tell me about your student's life? We had cheerful, friendly company which had time simultaneously well to study and to have a rest. My parents were proud of me as that time as present time! They said that we could have fun without spirits, cigarettes and especially without drugs. I very seriously treat these problems. The world to be rolled not clearly where and it is difficult to tell that against it. A lot of families in the world have mentioned this problem and they can only be pitied. It would not be desirable to speak about sad, probably, do you agree with me? As I already wrote in the beginning of the letter I live in small country town Kraslava. Though it and small on the sizes, I very much love to visit our museums and theatres. Write to me, please, about your city. What is your city and do you like to live there? And do you know what Kraslava is? I speak your language only a little and I own rules of a spelling. But I would like to know what do you think about my knowledge of your language. I want to apologize for mistakes admitted in my letter. I hope that in a near future I shall begin to write more competently. With INTERNET I work also for the first time. Difficultly something to speak about it, you see, you are the first man whom I communicate with the help of INTERNET. In our country about computers began to speak absolutely recently, but nevertheless Latvian people aspire to learn this clever machine. I write the letter to you not from houses. I write you, from INTERNET CAFE. I can use INTERNET daily; I go in INTERNET CAFE, as soon as I am free off work. I will be with impatience; I will wait forward for your letter. I hope that my photo is pleasant to you. Your new Russian friend, Mariya
Letter 2

Hi my dear friend Mark!!!!
I am very glad to receive your answer again so soon! It makes me happy!!! I hope that you can understand anything I say. And I hope that I can be frankful with you, Mark, I am very glad, that I have a man whom I can talk frankly to, without lie also of hypocrisy. Our world become more severe, and I think, that you agree with me. I can tell you, Mark, everything that occurs in my life and I think that you will understand me or even something will advise. As you can see at my photo I am not too fat and I am not too slim. My height is 165 cm and my weight is 57 kg. I think that I have a good figure but since my childhood I wanted to be a little more taller. One day of my childhood I wanted to become a photo model and then the day after I decided to become just a model. I know that there are some difference between these profession. But when I grew up I decided that it's not so important for me to become a model or a photo model. I think it's not so constant professions. I can see Latvian girls with can do everything to become a top model but it's not real. I want to have a real work which I like. But it's hard to find it especially in Latvia. I don't know anything about good work in other countries that is why I just can talk about Latvia. I think that you of course would like to know why I am here, I mean in the Internet. OK, I'll tell you but only after you. Of course if you ask me about it then. Mark, in our country the men like to drink very much. I think that I am not the first girl who say it to you. On our country very strong influence is rendered with Russia. And in Russia a problem of alcohol in general very big. This problem has touched many families. Mark, write, that you think in this occasion. I very seriously treat this problem. I love to have fun, to go in clubs, but thus it is not necessary to drink, it is possible simply to have a rest. Maybe that is because our men can't relax without some help of drinks, or drugs or maybe something else… I don't know. You know Latvian people like to celebrate holidays. Latvia is one of not so many countries which have a lot of holidays. Latvian men don't like to work a lot, maybe only somebody. If I am not mistaken we have about 100 holidays each year except Saturday and Sunday. We have a lot of holidays in January, then in February and then in March and in May. And every month we have at least one-two holiday. I think that you can understand me. A little about my hobbies. In my free time I like to carry out on a nature. In years time we frequently with the mum and dad go on our kitchen garden. There we grow different vegetables and berries. It is spoke, that the women in your country do not love to dig in ground. Write me about it more in detail and why they don't like it, please. I like to swim, I like to cook very much and sometimes I like to play billiards. It help me to settle down. I like to read sometimes. My favorite book is 'Master and Margaret' by Bulgakov. I hope that you know about this writer and about this book. I read it at least five times. And every time I read it I understand what is the true love! It's so great!!! Bulgakov did really describe this feeling, also about the God and other problem in our world and in our life. If you don't read it please read it for me, of course if you want it. I want to tell about my family. The attitudes in our family for me are ideal. My parents do live together already more than 30 years. Can you imagine that my grandparents had a golden wedding??? They were the best pair in the world and the best grandparents for me especially. I loved then very much!!! My grandfather learn me a lot of useful things and now I can feel their help in my real life. As I already wrote to you, my daddy works the driver, but, despite of it is very gentle with my mom, it constantly speaks it compliments. My daddy works a lot, but thus never speaks about it. The life compels so to work. I want for a long time that my parents have visited to have a rest for city. I can see that they strongly get tired, that of forces they already have not enough, and to leave there is no time the daddy speaks. It tries to do everything all for us. And for this reason, I always speak to my friends, that my parents are an ideal pair. My brother studies in technical school as the mechanic. He as well as my daddy will work as the driver or to repair automobiles. To my brother 21 year. Now, when they are well familiar with my family, they speak that at them unearthly love. In our family it is accepted that when there come the visitors it is necessary to invite all for a table, I mean to offer a cup of tea or coffee with candies or cake. And completely not important they came by the invitation or simply past passed. We consider that the hospitality is an attribute of good family. What you, Mark, think in this occasion. Mark, tell about your target, what do you like to do, to that devote the free time. I like to go in cafe with the friends in free off work time. I love ice-cream and grapes very much. The time goes not appreciably and it is time to me to go for work. I hope to see your letter, Mark, in my email in the near future. Write to me about yourself and family more in detail. Write about your friends. What is your favorite cuisine? What is your favorite book and anything you want me to know about yourself. I wait forward the answer, Your friend from Latvia,

Hi my dear friend Mark!!!
I was very glad to get your letter so soon. Thank you very much for your letter. It makes my day better!!! I wanted to ask you do you like flowers? And what kind of flowers do you like? I like of course roses. You know that they said the rose is the queen of all flowers. I agree with it. Besides roses I like field flowers such as ox-eye daisy, blue cornflower, little flowers (sorry I don't know names of flowers). But I don't like carnation at all. I think that it's a bad flower and it brings misery. Maybe I am wrong… My grandmother liked this flower very much but she was the happiest woman in the world!!! Do you want to know what I want to get? I want to get 99 or 101 small roses the next day after my wedding. It would be the best present from man I will love! My teacher on English has told me when I studied in the university that her husband gave her the same present on her birthday. Of course she guess about it but she thought that her husband gave her this present a little different way. She thought that it will be only petals of roses laying around the bad. Anyway she was very happy! Look and can you tell me what is the best present you were given? Of course if you want to tell it. And what would be the best present for your birthday? I really want to know that! You know, Mark, I didn't tell you one thing, I am curious! Maybe you are surprised but I want you to know that! We have in height a restriction. At us it is very difficult to find good the man. I have some question for you. Please write me back with your answers, ok?
1.Do you lie, maybe sometimes?
2.Do you trust me?
3.Can you understand me in any situation?
4.Have you a girlfriend?
5.Can youafall in love with me?
6.Can you have only one woman for the rest of your life?
7.Please, can you send me your photo with your smile?
8.Are you strong?
9.are you determined?
10.Can you cook?
11.Are you afraid of life problems?
12.Can you share your bed and your house with only one woman?
13.Can you live without alcohol drinks?
14.Do you want a serious relations with me?
Ok, I think that is all for now. So, Mark, now you can read my opinion about this question. What I am looking in a man:
1.without lie,
2.with trust,
3.wih understanding,
4.without other girlfriend,
5.with strong passion to me,
6.with sexual interest only to me,
7.with nice smile,
10.who can help me sometimes to cook,
11.who doesn't afraid of problems,
12.who can share with me our bed, our flat or house,
13.i don't like alcohol,
14.i don't care about smoking but I don't like when man drink a lot. Something about me you should know.
I don't smoke at all. I tried to smoke as every kid when I was about 15 years old and I don't like it. I like romance. I have a new look of life. I think you can understand me. But I don't understand how a man can love two girls or more at one time. Love is one and it's real love. I don't want to tell you about my last love with one Latvian man because it hurt me a lot and for a long time. I wanted to trust but I couldn't do it. It is unpleasant to me to recollect it. I think that is all for now, Mark. I will wait forward your photos and your answers for my questions.
Truly yours,

Hello my dear Mark!
How are you? How are you doing there? I am ok here. you for your quick answer to me. I was very glad again and again! That is great that we have correspondence to each other! And most of all I like that we know more and more about each other! At you very good English. I understand everything, that you write. I think, that I could fall love with you. From your letters I have some imagination about your person. You are very interesting, serious and good man! I want your business will always be fine. If you need some help from my side you can ask it or tell me what I can do for you. I will do my best to make you happy! Maybe it's the destiny that we found each other. It's great!!! Mark, I am writing you my letter during hot weather outside this window. But I know that you think of me and it makes me to become happy! Mark, thank you very much for your answers. I like them all. I hope that you were truly with me answering my questions. And now I know that you can understand everything I say to you. It's good to have a man who can understand me all. By the way I wanted to ask you one thing. Do you believe in destiny. I mean have you ever attend a soothsayer? I have never do it but my mother many years ago (about 5 or 6 years ago) went to one nice lady (she was soothsayer, she was about 70 years old, she had no kids and she lived alone near Saratov-city (country side), friends of my mother attended her before and she never lied them). So my mother is very curious and she decided to go there. This woman told her a lot of interesting things and my mother was surprised because this woman guess almost everything about her Past. And soothsayer said to my mother about her future life. She told her that I find my present work and she told her in what age I will marry. Do you think it is interesting to tell you? But my mother still doesn't want to tell me about it. That soothsayer told that my mother doesn't have to say about it to anybody… That is all story. I just want to know do you believe in soothsayer or do you think that every man make his own destiny by his self? Answer, Mark please, ok? How is your day going? I know that we have some difference in time. So in some hours I should go sleeping and you should go home from your work. I wish I were there with you… Ok, now I would better go. I hope I'll see your letter tomorrow in my mailbox, my dear Mark. Already miss you… Wait to hear from you soon, Mark. Bye!
Best wishes, Mariya.

In the Internet cafe I prefer tea, I very much like the Indian tea. How are you there? I miss you very much! I am so proud of myself that I have so wonderful man! It is YOU!!! Today I went to one woman. She is 56 years old. She has a daughter who lives now in Germany with your husband. He is from small town in Germany. I don't know how to write it in English. I didn't know that there is a chance to marry someone. You know there are a lot of bride agencies in Latvia. And a lot of Latvian girls attend them. And you know most of them marry foreign men. One girl had correspondence with one man from the USA. The girl was 30 years old. He sent her a lot of nice photos. And in some time he decided to come to Russia to take her to his country. She said 'ok, honey, I will wait for you'. She long waited for him, and he has deceived her and has not arrived. So he lied to her. I hope that you will not ever lie to me.
