Scam letter(s) from Inna Grigoreva to Justin (Canada)

Letter 1
Hi! Not sure how to start... OK I will start in a standard way... We've met each other on a dating site. My name is Marina and I'm 26 years old. I don't have a boyfriend. I want to meet someone special. Please tell me something about yourself! I think our heart is like an unfinished puzzle, that is why we search for the perfect one to complete it!!! Do you think so??? Maybe your puzzle can complete mine? We will see!!! Let's try to get to know each other better! Can I ask you some questions next time? You can ask me any questions! I don't have any secrets! I hope we match each other! If it is meant to be, our hearts will find each other when we meet. And if our hearts melt together so will our bodies and souls. Then every word and every touch will fuel our passion flame. I will be yours, you will be mine, and we will be one. Oh.... just dreams..... I'm so tired of being alone! Waiting for your answer! I wonder if you like my photos???? Puzzled, Marina ))))))

Hi, this is me again. Sorry I forgot to write you my height. It's 5.5. There is a saying in Russia (please don't think it's serious, it's almost a joke) - small women are made for love and tall women are made for work. I'm not tall but I don't think I'm short either )) I hope my height is OK for you. Soon I will come to work over there, my profession is a cosmetologist. I'm not sure it will be possible to find such work over there in beauty salon and at first I want to try to work as a waitress. I will have a special invitation to work and I would like to meet a nice man to be my guide or just be good friend to spend time with. I think that it is hard enough to live in foreign town without friends and also I have never been abroad. I want to see real life and it is impossible to see without a person who knows all sides of the life. Last few years appeared a special program "Work and travel" for young people who wants to work abroad. And many people from all over the world come to your country and it's possible to make good money over there!!! I also decided to do it! I've already started to register all documents!!! Do you think it's easy to find a work as a waitress in your city? I finished my work only one hour ago and I'm very tired now. I will write you everything tomorrow. Sorry this will be short, I'm so tired now. I hope you will be at least my friend when I come over there soon! I'm sending more pics, they are just usual pics. I don't have another photos now. I will scan more photos for you tomorrow..... I will write again tomorrow everything you want to know about me............. Marina
Letter 3
Hello again! I'm very happy to receive an answer from you! Thank you so much! I'm not sure what I'm looking for. I'm new in internet dating and I just don't know what can I expect and if that is possible to have some kind of relationship in internet and then continue to build it in the real life. I'm not looking for any special qualities, just a good person!!! But I really hope to create a serious relationship in my life. And I think I'm ready for marriage. Of course I want to have a serious relationship but at least I want to have a friend to be not alone over there. I will come over really soon! I will tell you everything about my trip as soon as I have all confirmations about everything, I'm quite superstitious to tell about everything in advance. Sometimes when you tell everybody about your plans it never works out. So I will write you about everything in about 2 days. My birthday is May 25. As I wrote you I'm 26 years old. I don't have a boyfriend. I have a sister, she is 35, I'm sending our photo today! I have many hobbies. One of them is bowling (you can see it from my photo I'm sending today). Also I like to sew clothes, that dress from the last pic I made by myself. It's a lot cheaper to sew clothes then to buy it. As for sports I'm too lazy to go to a gym or do aerobics. I like swimming! It helps me to be in a good shape. And sometimes I go to aqua aerobics, I like it much more then usual aerobics! And it's very good for women to do aqua aerobics because it helps to avoid cellulite. So I'm in a good shape and I have very good skin )) I work as a cosmetologist in a beauty saloon. My height is 5.5, I'm not sure what is my weight. You see I'm not ***! I live in the city near Tumen (I'm not sure how to write it in English), it's Tumenskaya oblast. You have states over there (I think so) and we have oblast (it's like districts). Tumen is a big city and I live in the city called Yarkovo and work in Tumen. Yarkovo is almost like a village but it's so close to Tumen, only several minutes by bus so I do all shopping and everything in Tumen. I graduated Tumen Medic Academy five years ago, dermatologist specialization. Also I passed few courses and have a cosmetologist diploma and certificate. I live with my mom. My father died seven years ago from the cancer. My mom is 61 years old, my sister is 35 years old, she lives in Yarkovo, she is married and has two kids a boy and a girl. My mom lives in a wooden house. I wrote my city is like a village and everybody who lives near us are good friends and they help my mom so she is not alone. I'm not at home very often because I work hard. I don't have any time for private life. I want to go to your country and to try to start a new life over there. As I told you I will write you more about it later. Of course I will miss my family but I asked my mom and she said she will be happy if I start my life and create a family. Please tell me more about your city and life over there, I think I can come over there. Do you think it's possible to find a work as I nurse over there? I will check it. You can send me a postcard if you want: Russia, Yarkovo, Lenina 12. I'm not sure how long does it take to deliver it, maybe I will already leave Russia. OK I have to go home, I'm so tired. I have a computer at home but no internet. I would be happy to talk to you by phone someday, I can speak English, although I'm so nervous to talk to you! I hope we will have no problems in communicating! Also I write English by myself without any dictionary. I'm sending three pics: me in bowling center, and two of them from my work. A woman on a pic is my sister Anna, she came to visit me at my work. We look like each other but she is not as slim as me because she already has two kids and her dream now is loose some weight! I think she is still beautiful! Please tell me more about your work and hobbies!!!!!!! Kisses! Marina

Hello!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so busy last days! Today was the last day of my work here. Also recently we celebrated a birthday of my sister, everything was OK. I bought her a T-shirt as a present. I told my friends at work about you and they are excited also about our meeting!!!! as usually I'm sending few pics. Me in the window of my mother's house. Me with a kitten (it's not mine, it's a kitten of my friend. I have a white cat, her name is Dilly). And one more pic of me dancing! I can do it very well!!! It's my hobby since I was a kid! It was a corporate New Year party at my sister's work and she asked me to dance for them!!!! It was my first experience of dancing in a public place! That happened last New Year! I'm always in a hurry last three days! I have to make so many arrangements! Tomorrow I will start my trip and I will fly to Moscow. I packed already some things but not all. It is not that far from my city, about 3 hours by plane. The main Embassy is in Moscow and all interviews to get a visa people pass over there. As soon as I come there I will receive more information about everything and I will write you all details of my visa from Moscow and then I have more time to write you a nice email. Now I'm also in a hurry! I have to translate my professional resume into English because I will need it in Moscow! I think it will be not hard to translate it, I hope so! I just don't have enough time to I have to do it as soon as I can. Today came an email for my visa appointment so they are waiting to have an interview with me and they are ready to give me a visa. They need to see me and check my background and everything and ask me some questions but that's OK! I will try to write you few more words about me! I like to cook, I've learnt from my mother how to be a good woman and wife. Of course I was never married but I'm sure I will be a good wife and I will do everything to make my man happy!!!!!!!!!!! My mother was a good wife till my father died..... I'm sorry I became sad again..... So many years passed since my father died but I still remember him like we talked only tomorrow. I want my man to be a good man as my father was. I'm not looking for any special qualities... I just want to man to love me and take care of me... I'm a one man woman and I don't believe in divorces (I mean I understand some people get divorced but I want to have my marriage forever!). I want somebody who is ready to love me forever. My favorite color is blue. My favorite flower is pink rose. As for music I like relaxing music as Enigma, also I like some rock and jazz. I like different music. I would be happy to write you about my favorite movies, books and everything but my time is limited now and I have to go!!!! It is so good I'm writing my emails to you!!!!!!!!!! It makes me so happy and also I can practice my English! Sorry I'm sure I made a lot of mistakes today but I try to type as fast as I can!!!!! I don't know why but I think about you every day! When we celebrated a birthday (I wrote you) my sister asked me why I look so happy! She thought I've met a Russian man and fall in love with him! She was shocked when I sad I met a foreign man in Internet and now I think about this man all the time. Now you know I think about you all the time!!!!! Really!!!! My mother and sister said they wish me luck and also they said hello to you!!! My father would be so happy if he only knew about my future trip and my meeting with you.... Maybe he looks at me from the heaven now..... OOOOOOOOOOHHH!!!!!!! I looked at watches here in internet cafe! I have to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will write you as soon as I can!!!!!!!!! As soon as I have enough free time I will write you all things you want to know! Thinking about you!!!! Marina
Letter 5
hello from Moscow! I'm so happy I started my trip! Now I have more time to write you. I settled down, I rent a small room and it's not that expensive. Moscow is very nice city and the weather here is very good now, although it rains sometmies. I thought maybe I will feel myself here uncomfortable because I come from a small city but I'm OK here. Moscow is very big city and here are a lot of people, anyway it's not as disturbing for me as I thought. Anyway I feel a little bit lonely because I understand I will not meet my family for a long time. I hope I will meet you soon and I will be not so lonely and you will tell me about my country... Now I can write you more information about my trip. I will get a work visa so I will be able to work anywhere over there. I think it will be not easy to find a work as a cosmetologist and I've heard it's more easy to find a job as a nurse, what do you think? I've been told it's very well paid job and I have medical education. Justino, please advice? Tell me your opinion. I have a medical diploma and Higher education and I'm a registered nurse. I have an experience to work as a nurse although last two years I'd been working as a cosmetologist. I've been told if something will not works out I will be able to find another job as a waitress or something like this. I will be able to stay over there during six months and then I can prolong my visa or change my status. I only didn't expect I will stay here for several days more because I have to pass different English tests and so on. I will be able to fly to you only in few days. As soon as I have all correct info about my flight I will inform you. Please confirm your information again and write me the name of your closest Airport (maybe international). I'm afraid I can mix something up please confirm. Also please confirm your phone number. In my turn today I will learn everything about international calls and calling cards and I will try to call you if you want. I've never made international calls before. I don't remember if I wrote you I don't smoke and never tried smoking although smokers doesn't bother me. I drink socially... maybe a little glass of wine or something like that.... usually on big holidays. I know how to take care about one's health and I'm healthy without any diseases or disabilities. Do you like to drink fresh juices? What is your favorite one? I like pineapple juice, although I drink it now often because pineapples are expensive here. As for food I told you I like to cook. I like Italian food, I think many people like it. I've been told many times I'm a good cooker! What is your favorite food? I mean maybe Italian, Chineese? I'm sending more pics but they were taken not today! I took some pictures with me and saved on a disc when I come to you Justino, I will show you more pictures! I have lots of them! And today I'm sending three pics. One pic is me with my grandmother and grandfather (by my mother's side) and two pics near our home in the garden. Sorry my pics are not so good... I've never had a digital camera. I'm so attracted to you and I can't wait till we meet each other and I can touch you.. I can look into your eyes! I want to ask you many questions! Justino, I think you are very good man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I imagine our first meeting often... how it will be??? I don't know! But I'm sure it will be wonderful!!! Yours, Marina P.S. Tomorrow I will ask somebody to take my pictures in Moscow and I will try to send them to you!!!
Letter 6
I miss you so much and I'm very excited we will meet each other soon!
Soon I will go to learn some info about my trip and I will write you when I get it.
I walked a lot and I've seen many nice places in Moscow.
I tried to see as much sightseeings as I can. Maybe I will never have such chance to stay in Moscow for several days.
The weather is very nice here! In my native city it's a bit colder now and it was raining over there. In Moscow the weather is better, although it ws raining in the morning too.
Justino I'm sending two pics, tomottow I will try to send more!
Sorry I'm not smiling! I hate to ask people on the street to take my pictures!!!
Now I have to go and continue to prepare for my English tests!
I can't wait to meet you! I would be happy to be your girlfriend if you like me!!!!
Letter 7
Hello my sweetheart Justino!!!
I'm writing you as soon as possible!!!!!! I had to do so many arrangements!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just returned from the travel agency and they gave me an information about my trip!
I would be happy if you can meet me in the Airport when I come to you.
I will come to you on Saturday, it's November 22!!!!!!
I hope it's a good day for you to meet me.
The full cost of my trip including documents and roundtrip tickets is 1475 US dollars.
I passed all tests and everything and all papers are ready. I will pass my final interview at the embassy this week and they will put all stamps in my documents and I will come to see you!
I can't say I'm too much nervous. I know you are waiting for me and I hope you will tell me everything about your country and show me some nice places over there.
I will travel eco class, I hope my flight will be OK. It's so many hours to spend on the plane, I've never done such big flights.
As far as I remember it was about five hours to fly to Egypt from my city and it's the longest flight I've done.
I wrote already all info about my visa. I will be able to stay over there during six months and then I can prolong my visa or change my status.
I'm happy I have a job lined up and I hope everything will works out!
I want to meet you and talk to you and get to know you better.
I feel we will like each other, at least I hope so.
If you decide you know me not well enough to want to stay just friends with me I will stay in hostel for nurses.
But I hope you will like me!!!!!!!!!! I have a good feeling about it!
I've learnt how to make international calls. I've been told not all public phones and suitable to do this and I've been told which one I can use not far from the place where I'm staying.
If you want me to call you just tell me and I will try to call you!
Also will you pick up the phone or someone else and I should ask to talk to you?
As I wrote you I will come later this week and I will stay here for several days.
So now I have to make final arrangements with my documents.
I told you I passed all tests, I have all documents I need to get a job and everything.
Justino please try to help me to finish my arrangements.
And I need to pay for this flight. I thought they can pay for my flight because it's a work program but such possibility was available for nurse visas. The limit of such payments already expired this year and they said I should pay it by myself.
My mom can't help me to pay for my trip, she is lonely, my father passed away I wrote you. And my sister has to pay all expenses for her kids and everything. Please try to help me, you are my only hope!
I will wait for your help today!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will give the money back to you as soon as I can. I can't promise I will earn all the money in 2 weeks but in 3-4 weeks I will give it back to you. Nurses in your country earn very good money!
Justino please send it today by Western Union
I will write you details:
Send it to
Marina Petrowa!!!!
This is my full name!
They said this is all info you need.
But please for any case write down more info.
The address where I'm staying in Moscow is Moscow, Vavilova 21-16.
The address of the closest Western Union here is
Moscow, 109012
Also I've decided send you a scan copy of my passport in case you need to confirm my details.
I have some money but it's not enough to complete my trip.
Please send me 985 US dollars and I will complete my trip!
After it please write me all details about the transfer - your full name and MTCN number!!
Justino I will call you as soon as I receive it!
When I receive the money I will pay for my trip and only then the embassy will put all final stamps on my documents.
I've bought you few souvenirs with Russian attributes!!! I'm sure you will like them! If you need something more please let me know, they are not expensive.
I hope so much when I come to you we will like each other!
Justino you are already very special to me!
Please when I come to you tell me more about you and your country! I will listen to everything you tell me and I will do everything you tell me! I trust you really much!
