REPORT N1 (added on September, 13, 2005)
Gregory (Australia)

Wrote to me for awhile, fell in love very quickly. Dodged
questions about personal details. After some pressure, gave me grandparents address for mail, as he was conveniently a postal worker.
Father was conveniently a lawyer for a big company, but they had no telephone at home.
When faced with evidence of writing to someone else, who she was also madly in love with, she denied all knowledge, then had had a serious head injury, then denied knowledge again.
Never actually got around to asking for money, but I think the set up was being laid, judge for yourself I guess.

Jerry (USA)

she has sent me letters for over 4 months told me in beginning she would never ask for money. After like the 4th or 5th letter was in love. Didnt ask for money till she quit her job cause she was being transfered where there were no computers.. (says she is a midwife) Says her visa and pass port are being held at the travel agency and she cant get them unless she buys a ticket to leave and asked for the money at that point.

Scam Letters

Emails from Marina Sofronova to Gregory (Australia)
Hi my dear.
My dear, I write you with that wish that you have answered immediately. As very much want to read, your letters. Your letters as air without which to not live in this world. I want to write to you about last bell which pass at all pupils on the termination of academic year. Has guided me on this letter that when I today passed near school, there passed last bell. This such joyful event for pupils because it designates that summer vacations have come. Summer vacations proceed at us in Russia 3 months. These are those 3 months when it is not necessary to go to school, it is not necessary to do homework, it is not necessary to wake up in 6.30 mornings to not be late in school. I want to tell to you about that as I went to school and about my last bell after leaving school.
I have gone to school since 6 years. I any more do not remember what I was in these years, but one I not when shall not forget it September, 1 when I have gone to school. I have even photo but it is a pity that it cannot be sent you as it is made on a usual film. I as well as all children in our class studied well. As mum tells to me, I had marks only 5. I do not know as at you but 5 it is the maximum point. The ambassador when I have passed in 10 class studied in a mathematical class. In this class paid attention to training of mathematics more. Dear you would know as it difficultly and hardly when per one week it happens mathematics of 12 lessons, when in other usual classes

Hello Steve.
At once I ask an apology that did not write to you some days, but in our family has taken place big to mountain. My unique uncle, the brother of mum has died. We should leave urgently from city on a farm to help with funeral to the wife of my uncle.
It is the big loss for us. My uncle was very good, cheerful and kind person. Without him in our heart emptiness is felt. We will not have not enough very much him.
I only yesterday late at night have come back home. Forgive, if has forced you to worry.
My dear Steve, from burning and excitements I have unintentionally removed your letters. So I do not know, about what you wrote to me. If there there was something very important write to me it again. I do not want to miss your letters.
Today I still feel mourning and I have a bad condition. So I shall write to you longer letter next time. Know, that I remember you and I love.
Always yours Marina

Hello my loved Steve!

And it comes to an end the good arrangement of my spirit! I frequently present, as your lips softly concern my lips!!! We leave this world

Hello my love, Jerry.

I am grateful to you for the letter. My feelings to burn fire after your letters. My body shivers from perusal of your lines which you typed the hands.

This phrase strengthens the values for me each time all more strongly and more strongly! My dear, I send you a copy of the visa which to me have made in travel agency. But I shall not receive these documents on a hand, yet I shall not make payment for air tickets. You understand me? When you can send 1025 $ on air tickets? I like to play board games. I like to play checkers and a lotto. You know these games? But I do not like to play on money. I like melodramas and thrillers. I also love historical films. And what films you like to look? I have no car and I can not drive it. I have no driving licence. But very much I wish to learn this. You will help me with this with the future? I the Christian on belief. I go to church on religious holidays. But I think, that each person should have the god in the heart, in soul. It is necessary to address frequently to the god, to talk to him.

Me asked even about my attitude to Moslem doctrine and th
