Kissakrasotka Galina (Galya).
Typical email scam for visa & tickets money.
(S)he creates an account in online dating sites. Then asks you for your normal email in order to communicate outside the online dating site.
What follows are some of the emails I received. They are 100% identical to those received by others. It is easy to tell because if you Google some of their text you will find other scam victims. Just don’t respond to them.
This is me again. As I promised I am going to tell you more
about myself now.
My name is Galina.
I am 28 years old.
I have never been married and I have no children.
My height is 5.5 and my weigh is 120. You can have an impression
about it from my picture.
I am a very affectionate person. I believe in a life full of
physical, emotional and spiritual happiness. And I want to share
such a life with a person who wants the same.
I love the outdoors, spending time at home with a beloved person.
I love nature, water, picnics.
But I don’t do this as often as I would like it to be as I don’t
have the one who could share it with me.
I am honestly ready to open my heart to a person who could
really appreciate this.
I work as a shop-assistant and do sell clothes for women (skirts,
trousers, blouses ). I really like my job. It is great when you
can help someone to look more beautiful and I like to be around
I live in Russia. The city is called Tomsk. If you look at the
map, you will find it close to the center, in the beginning of
Sibiria. but somewhere in May I am going to get a student
visa and I am
going to come to your country. I thought a lot about it and had
come to such decision.
I love Russia but I do really want to move to a more stable
country. The life is very complicated here. I know it will not
be easy in a foreign country. But I am sure I can do much more
in your country. I am a hard-working person and I am not afraid
of difficulties, so with the opportunities that your country
gives I can do more than I do here.
I already have some experience living and working in a foreign
country. Some years ago I worked in Australia and I should say
I liked it very much. So I know what is waiting for me and I
don’t want to waste time. And I decided to try and find a
person I could rely on, the one who will be with me in joy
and sorrows. We all work a lot now and it takes so much time
that we miss the most important in this life – love relations
Living in Australia I had relations with a man. But I had to
go back to my country as my visa was over. He didn’t want to
wait for me any longer. It was too difficult for him. It was
a very hard period for me but I could handle it. And now I
am ready to fall in love and to have new relations. I tried
to have correspondence with foreigners. But as soon as they
get to know I was from Russia they disappeared. They thought
I was a scammer. I hope that you are not scared that I am
I want you to understand, I am not a scammer. I don’t need
money from you. I heard much about it and I really feel sorry
for women who are true and want to find their happiness.
All this is so wrong as there are so many people who really
want to find their second halves. And internet is a very good
opportunity for this.
I hope that you like my picture. I am not a model, of course.
I am just an average Russian girl who is truly seeking her love…
I hope that you are interested in me and I will hear back from
you. And perhaps, in the future we will have an opportunity to
meet. I go to the internet cafe 3 times a week. That is why
I am going to write to you in a day.
Well, I hope that now you understand me better and I will be
waiting impatiently for your reply.
I am very glad to hear from you. Thank you for paying attention
and for writing back.
You can call me Galya. It is a short name from Galina.
All my friends call me Galya…
I am going to tell you a little bit more about my lifestyle.
My apartment is rather small but very cozy. It is very
expensive here to rent an apartment. So this is what I can
afford to myself now – one room, no phone and a small kitchen.
But my friends say it is very comfortable. It is difficult
to live alone and do all by myself. My parents live in another
city. I moved from there when I was 17. And I don’t see them
often. We are not in very good relations with them. But any
time they need my help, I will come and do what I can for them.
Though I am 28 y.o. I am ready to settle down, to have family,
to give all my time to my husband. I think that every person
needs a place he could come and feel easy and comfortable.
This is what I am looking for and what I need. I don’t want
to be lonely any more. I was disappointed several times. And
I don’t trust men here any more. By the way, how it happened
that you still haven’t found your second half? You are a very
interesting person and a good man. And I am sure you break hearts.
You already know that I am trying to get a student visa to
your country. And it could be a very good opportunity for
us to meet if we like each other through letters and find
that we match each other. The situation in our country is
very uncomfortable now. With our president Putin we have no
democracy. And our new president Medvedev same as Putin.
There are no good laws; we live like it was during
the Soviet times. And I don’t like it at all. Other countries
are developing fast. But we are still on the same level as
it was many years ago. I liked living in Australia. It is
a big and well developed country with lots of opportunities
for good life. I lived there for 1,2 years. But unfortunately,
I had to go back because of my visa. I was there in 1997-1998.
And it was a very good time for me. I enjoyed it.
I worked as a nurse with children. And I liked the family
I lived in very much. They are good people and they helped
the first time a lot. My language skill was not good and
they helped me to speak and understand it better. My living
there helped to write and speak English fluently. So there
will be no problems with our communication.
But I don’t want to go to Australia any more. I told you
already in my previous letter that a man I had there just
left me and I don’t want to anything to remind me about
I am going to tell you about interests and hobbies in
my next letter. I have to stop here as the time in the internet
cafe is limited. I don’t have my personal computer at home
as most people in Russia do.
Well, I will better stop here for now.
I have attached pictures that were taken last sunner at the
Black Sea. It is the South of Russia. I was there with my
friend Vika. She is a very close friend to me. She did take
the pictures of me.I will try to send you my pics with each
letter. I hope you don’t mind?
such a pity there is no message from you.
You have received my last letter?
There were a pics from Black sea.
I only want to tell you that I think of you and wait for
your reply. Please, write me as soon as possible.
I am waiting for your reply impatiently.
I have some time and I decided to tell you more about myself.
I really like you and I would like to know you well. And I
want you to understand me better too, to know how I live,
what I do in my spare time.
Well, I like cooking very much. This is one of the things
that make me relax and forget about all the bad things that
happen during the day. Salads, different soups, pasta,
souses, cakes and pies– it is just a short list of what
I cook. I like very much to try new things. It is always nice
to go to a good restaurant or to a nice pizza place, cafe.
I do it seldom, usually it happens when we celebrate someone’s
I like trying new cuisine and trying to guess what are the
What’s favorite dish?
What’s is your favorite colour ? Mine is red and black.
I like animals a lot. Also I like watching programmes on TV
about animals. I do love cats and dogs. Also I have a dream to
make a horse ride. I think it is very exciting.
Watching movies is one of my adorable things to do, especially
at the weekend.
It is always so nice to rent some movie, to cook something
tasty or something sweet, to invite someone of my friends and
enjoy the time together. It is especially nice doing it in the
cold winter evening with a warm blanket and a cup of hot tea
What’s favorite movie? Any favorite actress and actor?
I like Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron very much. I think she
gorgeous. And I always try not to miss a new movie with them.
Also I like studying languages. I try to improve my English and
also I would like to learn French some day. I have a phrase book
and trying to learn something though sometimes
it is rather hard.
I always try to find time to read something. The last book
I’ve read was “Loneliness in the internet” by Vishnevskiy.
I liked it very much though it is sad but it shows the true life
of people. I also like to read classical things by Tolstoy,
Bernard Show, Dostoevskiy and others.
I regularly go into aerobics. And I also I go twice a week to
the swimming-pool. It helps me to stay in a good shape and to
I try to lead a healthy life style, don’t have any bad habbits.
Music helps me to be a in good spirit. I like ballads very much
though sometimes I can listen to a fast music. I like Lara Fabian
very much and Darren Hayes.
What about you? What are your prefers? Tell me, please, more
about you and your interests.
I have one question for you. Do you know any colleges and universities
close to your place? I could check them in advance and enter then
when I go to your country in May.
I wish to study and live near with you, that we could meet.
I wish to study as the translator.
My pics today –
The first picture was taken 2 months ago at my work. I hope that you
remember that I work as a shop-assistant at the store that sells
clothes for women. Another picture was taken last summer in the park.
I like to have long walks in parks.
Well, I have to close here. But will be waiting very much for
Unfortunately, I can’t talk to you on-line, as I write letters
to you from the internet cafe and the time is limited there.
I wish I could chat with you but right now it is just impossible
as I don’t have a personal PC.
I am going to send you my address here. As I already told you
I rent my apartment and I don’t have a phone there. But here
is my address, in case you decide to send me a card or a
hand-written letter: –
Minina street 4,
Tomsk, 634033, Russia
Yes, I am going to come to your country in May. Somewhere
in the middle of May. I am going to enter the University
or college. I am doing all the paperwork for this now. That’s
why I asked you about the colleges or Universities close to
your place. So I could study and meet with you there.
Do you want it?
I have attached one erotic picture for you. I have done it to
show that have a beautiful body. I hope you like it. Please,
don’t ask me to send you naked pictures. I am not going to do
it. I write you from the internet cafe and I don’t want anybody
to see my naked pictures.
I hope that you understand me.
Do not forget to send me your photos.
As soon as I finish this letter I will go and have a short walk.
You know walking is one of the things I adore. It is so nice to
have a long walk and then find some small cafe and get a cup
of coffee there. I don’t have a car and I don’t really want to
have it right now. And it is too expensive for me. I have no money
to buy a car. I have never tried to drive a car and I have no license.
Walking is much more pleasant. Unfortunately, most of the times
I have to walk alone. All my friends are married and they try
to spend more time with their families. I also like to go to the
movie a lot. But do it rather seldom. Usually I go there with my
friends, but they don’t do this often. They try to spend more
time with their husbands and children. As I don’t have children
and a husband, I try not to bother them often. Sometimes I feel
rather lonely but I try not to think of this often.
Any way, my city is too beautiful not to walk. My city is very
beautiful. There are so many places of culture there, lots of
monuments. It is very green. It is especially beautiful in
spring and in summer time when everything is awaken after
There are also many parks and we have one boulevard with fountains.
And it is gorgeous.
Also we have some really beautiful churches. I am Christian
but I am not really religious. I have my own faith inside.
And I go to the church but do it seldom. I am not fanatic
I like nature very much and it is always a please to go somewhere
to the country-side and to spend a day there. I like picnics,
camping a lot. It is great to spend a day on the fresh air,
especially when you are with friends or family. I try to enjoy
it every time we do it but sometimes I feel very sad as I miss
not having my second half near.
Well, I am not going to be sad, as I am sure everything will
be fine. Please, tell me about your city? What is it?
What’s interesting there?
