Scam letter(s) from Tatyana Ermanikova to Rick (USA)

Letter 1
Hello!!!! Have good day. I hope, that you remember me because I have written to you recently on a dating site and you answered me. I am sorry, I did not write to you back at once.
You see, I live in Russia, and I was busy, organizing all my preparations for travel. I was in Moscow and I booked my interiew for the trip to the USA, it takes approximately two weeks to go to Moscow and back. You know, it is my first time when I try the correspondence with the man in virtual space.
I am not so good user Intenet, but I hope that I shall have chance to meet the good person.
I think, that I shall explain to you why I do it. I shall work in the USA approximately three months or more and I wish to meet a good person to be my guide or be the good friend with whom I can spend time together when I am in the USA. I think it is very difficult to live in foreign city without friends and besides I never were abroad. You know, I live in small city in Russia andI am afraid to be lost in your country.
I also wish to see a real life (not the TV shows), and it is impossible to see a real life without the person, who knows all parts of a life.
Also I do not wish to live in Russia because I have no opportunities here, it is hardly possible to explain in a few words, but I want you to know all mine plans. When being in the USA I shall work in any shop or I shall be the baby sitter in some family. I shall know details later. Except for that I love English language and it will give me chance improve my English.The agency helps me to receive the visa, the permission to work and all travel documents.It is their business, and I shall pay for their Services.
One of my friend worked in the USA for three months in the past to year, and she loved it very much, and she wishes to repeat this trip again.
She has met the right person in Chicago, and they are good friends now and he will marry her if all will be good between them. In Russia we have special programs for work in the USA and other countries and I think, that itis the right way for me. I feel lost here, and I hope, that I shall be able to change my life.
I have many plans and dreams...
I have dark brown hair and green eyes. I send you my pictures, and I hope, that you like me if we meet in real.
Please tell to me what you think about this.I finish this letter, and I hope, that you write me very soon.
Probably you think, that I am little bit crazy, but I am sure thatit is the right way to meet good the man without meeting personally in a real life and besides knowIt is my first try on the Internet.
I shall leave my city in some days to fly toMoscow again to finish all things for travel. Agency will arrange this trip for me, and I shall work all the day long and I think, that we can spend evenings together and the know each other better. If you have any interest to meet me I shall be very happy!!!

I do not want to be lonely in the evenings, and I want to know for sure if somebody waits for someone me! It is just a woman's wish!
I shall tell to you all details about my life and about me later.
If you are also lonely, you can be with me for the few months or so.... Who knows???!

With the best regards from Russia

Maria (this my name)

PS Please send me your photos!
Letter 2
Thanks you for your reply. I was very glad to see your reply in my e-mail box. You look handsome!!!
That would be right if I tell you about me and about my life because we have a chance
to meet each other in a real lifeand thus we need to know each other better.
You please tell me more about yourself, all right?

I am the simple and ordinary girl with my own interests, a hobby and tastes.I think I I shall start to tell to you about things which as I wish to know from you, so you will see my questions. As you know my name is Maria and my last name is Matveeva.
I am 28 years and on 23 December I shall be 29.
I am about 168 cm tall and my weight is about 53 kg
The sizes of my body are 96-62-91 cm.
I have dark brown hair and green eyes which you can see from my photos.
I know that many women abroad have an opportunity to improve their bodies and faces and they look so beautiful.
Unfortunately it is impossible here in Russia because this country is still far from a civilization.
But I still think that natural beauty is much better.
I live with my aunt,the uncle and cousin because I do not have parents (they have died long time ago in bus crush when I was still small).
Unfortunately we live in two-room small appartments and it is not convenient and comfortable.
Me and my cousin are very good friends, but now he is in army.
To tell the truth there is nothing good in the fact that I was born and live in small town of Russia.
There is no chance for a good life here and it is very hard to find work here.
All young people leave small towns and go to big cities in searches of work but unfortunately there is too there is no luck for them in big cities because nobody is waiting them there.
Living in Russia is living " all by myself ". It is good but cruel school of a life.
I hope that in he future I shall work as fitness trainer because I have the certificate and I am good in it.
I worked in last of two years as fitness trainer and it was the best time in my life.
I do not smoke, also I drink socially.
My preference in alcohol is red wine, but only a glass or two.
I tried to smoke when I was younger. Silly me! But I think almost everyone tries to smoke when you are 13 years, right?
I try to take care of my body and the face as much as possible.
I wasn't born yesterday and I know that almost all men love women " by their eyes ", I mean that this or that way woman's appearance is very important for the man.
Speaking about my travel. I shall arrive to the USA this month but I don't know when exactly, I know that I shall have all documents to travel very soon and I shall travel to Moscow again to finish all preparations for travel to the USA.
I shall get visa and I shall buy the ticket and then I shall fly to the USA.
I do not know where exactly I fly because I have not decided yet.
I can choose almost any state to stay that is why I need to know a name of the nearest international airport to you.
I just wish to have somebody expecting me at the airport and I do not wish to be alone there.
I shall fly to the USA directly from Moscow and I hope you will want to meet me at the airport and to be my guide and it would be great to meet you face to face and to spend some time together.
I know that it is not an easy thing as it might seem, but there is nothing impossible, right?
I shall be more than glad if you understand me and my thoughts and you are with me in this question but if not, then please tell me that you are not interested in me and do not wish to meet me, ok?
I think I should close this letter.
It is not good that I have no computer at home and I have to send my letters to you from Internet cafe which is far from my house. I would like to talk to you on the phone, but unfortunately we have no opportunity for international calls (I cannot call to you and you cannot call to me because here we have four-digital telephone numbers).
It is possible to make international phone calls only from big cities.
All right, it is enough for today.
If I did not tell you something which is very important for you or I missed something, please do not be angry.
Just ask me and I will answer for sure.
I think I shall be here in the Internet cafe tomorrow, I have many preparations before travel to Moscow. I hope when I come here, I shall see one more letter from you.
Please write me and do not forget me!!!

Maria Matveeva my home address:
Kemerovskaya region,
Kulebakino village,
Oktyabrskaya str. 28 If you want to find my village on a map, it is is located near the big city Kemerovo.
PS Please send me as many as possible photos of so that I could know you at the airport.
And one more thing. I have very important question for you:
- Do you like strong drinks?
- If so, then how much and how often?
Letter 3
Hello dear Rick,
I am very happy because I have met such a man like you from the first time and I will do my best to meet you in a real life soon.
Ok, this letter will be very long, so be ready to read it up to the end because I want you to know all about me.
I just do not want any misunderstanding between us.

I think you have the right to know, that I am not perfect and I am not an angel, I mean I am just an ordinary girl with all ordinary human problems. Sometimes I can show my character and of course I do not expect that you are not an angel too, I just wish to meet kind the man.
I am an easy-going person and I can forgive almost everything, but there is one thing.
I hate drunkers and rude men.

I love water and my favourite thing is swimming. I wish I could live near some sea or ocean.
You know, I have one dream. I wish to see an ocean.
I was always dreaming about it, sometimes I even think that I was a fish in my previous life (I hope I was a dolphin but not a shark). I have graduated the Siberian State University and I have the higher degree (license) in trainer's faculty I can work as a fitness trainer or the dance trainer. I love my profession and I would like to work in this subject in some fitness club.
I think it is very important to have work which can give you not only a good salary but also a good mood and get pleasure from your work.
What do you think?
Unfortunately it is very hard to find such type of work here because we have only a couple of such clubs and there are no vacancies.

Ok, some things which I like and don't like to do: I like to prepare and I like to make BBQ.
I wish I could have my own house and to make BBQs for my close people.
I alsodream to have the house with a fireplace. I like to cook something new and something special.
My friends tell me that I should work at restaurant.
I also love warm weather and I hate winters. Here in Russia winters are long and very cold. I was never married, but I hope oneday, I also have no children though I already have an experience of a babysitter.
Some time ago I had to stay at home because I could not find work and from time to time
I was a babysitter.
I hope once to find that special one and it is impossible here in Russia because men are real drunkers and very rude. You know, for me the age difference is not important.
I hate evil people and I hate a politics.
Last few years I associate politics with wars and as you can see from my letter I hate violence and wars.

What do I love in a man? Faithfulness and honesty.
He should be an open-minded and warm-hearted , also easy-going. And I believe that there can not be any games in relationship between the man and the woman. It is very important for the man to be a kind person.
Maybe you think that I am naive but I believe that love and kindness makes our world still alive.
Are you a kind man???
I believe you are, because soon I shall fly to the USA and meet you there.

When I am in the USA I will rent some room near to my future work and I hope we shall spend free time together I have a question. It is ok for you if we live together?
I mean if we shall like each other or maybe if there is something more than just to be friends.
I think I shall improve my English with your help and it will give us chance to know each other better, who knows... We shall see.
Do you have a big bed? (I am just joking).

I have a driving license but I am not sure if I can drive there in the USA, maybe you will give me a few good lessons.
My head is full of plans and ideas...

I am sorry for the long letter but I just wanted you to know me better.
I am flying from the Kemerovo's airport to Moscow in a few hours.
My flight will take almost five hours!!! I think I shall write to you tomorrow.
As soon as I shall arrive in Moscow I shall find some hotel or rent a room to live in before my flight in the USA.
I already was in Moscow and I know all these things, so it will not be a big problem for me.
By the way this time I have sent you 3 photos.

I was told it will take two more days to complete all my preparations for travel and I do hope to see you in a few days already!!!
Even don't think to look at other girls because I am the best for you! (joke)
