    How can you be sure that it isn’t the Russian Mail Order Bride or Sweet Cherry of your dreams?

  2. amykins says:

    sound like russian pay for play brides or those striking out on their own for a lil american man #1 marriage

    you should email them back from a fake email and see what they say…I wonder what they cost lately since the market has opened to other countries so readily..

    I am on match.com, but you couldn’t find me in a billion, ok ten, years. I lied and logged off. I have been feeling ambivalent about the people I have been corresponding with from any site. OK, maybe ten minutes. Debating pulling my ad once again…

  4. Tom says:

    I got a similar e-mail from supposed Ekaterina. Same e-mail address but a different profile name. I wouldn’t e-mail anyone from match.com with an e-mail address ending in .ru just to be safe. A good way to check authenticity of some of the e-mails is to just type in different portions of the message on the internet and if it’s a scam, you may find the same exact message and the same pictures they send. The whole scam seems to be based on them luring you into believing that they’re totally in love and can’t bear being away from you and when you’re primed for the kill, they ask you to send money to some travel agency to help them make the trip. The heart is not always so smart. But it does seem that Match.com needs to police their site better. If you get such an e-mail, call them and report it so they can cancel the person’s membership.

  5. Tom says:

    And one more thing, no matter what, don’t send money. If they start asking for money, run – it may be a scam. Identity theft is also possible so watch out giving out personal information.

    I created a fake email address and sent Ekaterina an email. She replied back a day later with a pretty convincing email. I don’t have it in me to play this game. Tom, I think you’re right! See the image she sent me, above.

  7. Charlotte says:

    Pretty stilted English…perhaps she also used a translation machine. My students try that before I read them the recipe for paste cake…overthrow the thimbles!!

  8. Lee says:

    Searching on some phrases in her letter, I just found eKaterina’s letter on StopScammers.com, WomenRussia.com,and Russian-Detetive.com. Each had a different photo.

    :-(

  9. match.com member says:

    Ok guys, its not match.com that has issues. Some people can just create a dummy profile and ask people to email them and then send them money. These people do this on every social website. So match.com is no exception to them.

    just my two cents.

    I am a member on match.com and yes, i have received two emails like these. I ignore them. I learned my lesson from past. Never lost money, but wasted so much time on one girl that was similar to these girls. I also disabled my IM on match.com. If they can’t email me back, i’m not interested either.

  10. azza says:

    ok guys heres some stuff you may wanna see

    Hello dear friend Azza!!!

    I’m very glad that you have interested in me and I will try not to disapoint you and you
    will get everything new about me.

    I always wanted to travel one day, it was my dream when I went in school))

    So now I would like to tell you about myself. I am a siply Russian girl, not differ from

    others.
    Maybe to discribe myself it could be easyer if i do it for a first time.
    I did not hope that you will answer me and when i saw your letter I got choked in my heart

    and now i am sitting
    in front of computer and do not know what to write you.
    I am sorry if there are a lot of mistakes in my letter because i know English not very well.
    But I hope that you will understand me and if you have some questions I will answer them

    with pleaser.
    Anyway it is time to say some words about myself.
    My father died, when I was a child. It was an auto accident.
    I miss him a lot!!!! Since 2 years old my mother grew and educated me alone,
    It was very difficult for her and I love her very much. And now she is the best friend for

    me.
    I’m the only child in the family and I don’t have any children, but I dream to have my own

    family, children.
    My mother works in Bryanskaya Oblast in the hospital as a medical sister.
    I have never been married before.
    I am healthy woman and I do not smoke but sometime
    I can offer myself to drink some good wine in good ocasions.
    Most of all I like red wine.
    From food i like Chines food and Russian food and I would like to teast Europian and West

    food.
    I am not exactly that I want to have a child because i think that first of all I want to

    find a man
    who will become my ideal sexual partner and simply good friend for my heart.

    I work in office as manager in the insurance company, I work 40 hours per one week.
    I work with the clients who want to insure his or her car or real estate.
    I help our clients correctly to choose best for them to insurance.
    I know that in your country the system of insurance etc is advanced very well.
    In Russia people just now have begun to think about insurance,
    therefore we have many clients at this time.
    In our company we have good boss, we have studied together with her at University,
    but she is older than me for three years. I have good relations with my boss.
    I have the high salary for our city. It is about 3-4 $ dollars at one hour.

    I live in the city – Bryansk. It’s small city.
    It belongs to Bryanskaya Oblast , about 384 KM from Moscow.
    I think that this information will help you to know me better.
    I would like to know about your work and City.
    I shall send you some picture of my city later.

    By the charecter i am kind person and trying to enjoy everything in my life
    and trying to distroy all diffuculties in my life. So, lets go further.
    My friends say that i am attractive even beautiful young woman.
    But unfortunately this fact did not help me to create my own family.
    Now i am sick and tired of my loneliness.
    I am an openminded and communicative, but sometimes a little bit shy, girl.
    Now i want to find that someone who can make all my dreams come true.
    In my turn i would be very glad and happy to do the same thing for my beloved man.
    So what do you think about it? By the way, i like sport very much. I am not a sportsman

    ofcoarse.
    Just inorder to be in good form. I visit the gym three times a week.
    I like to swim in the swimming pool.
    But to tell the truth, i am afraid of water. But I try to overcome this fear.
    Sometimes, not very often, I love dancing very much.
    I can’t say that i like a particular tipe of musik. It depends on my mood,
    what type of musik i would like to listen to.
    But usually i am very busy to have some rest and to do things i love to.
    Well, what else? I even dont know what to tell more. In such case i will finish my letter.
    I am waiting for your reply!
    Good bye, my dear new friend!!!!
    If you can please send me your pictures.
    I will be glad to get your letter and pictures.
    I am sending you my smile to make you feel happy.
    Your Ekaterina from Russia.
    Hello dear Azza!!!

    How are you??? Hope you are fine :)

    I would like to tell you some things and please let
    me know what do you think about it. Okey?
    I am looking for a serious relationship, somebody who can understand me
    and whom I can understand.
    I think relationship between man and women is most important, a man
    should always treat a women nice
    and with love and respect, who stands by her in bad and good times and
    takes care of all her necessities.
    He should give her all the love he can so that she feels like the
    luckiest person on this earth.
    Similarly a woman should do the same for man, to support him all the
    time, to be with him when he needs her.
    I think love is the key, a very important factor in a relationship and
    only way you can make somebody love you
    if you are honest, sincere, faithful to that person.

    Also I would like to tell you some words what i did today.

    Today when I was at job come a very solvent client who has
    wanted to insure the real estate.
    He has arrived to our republic from republic Komi.
    It is in the north of Russia and he badly talked in Russian.
    I have spent about three hours while explained him conditions of our insurance.
    And he has agreed to insure the real estate in our company.
    My boss promised me to give me holiday soon :)))

    I like see new films in cinema, also i like read books and you?
    Tell me what films you like and what kind of books you like to read.
    May be you are already bothered to read my letter.
    As for me I like actress Angelina Jolia.
    Most of all I like film with her participation
    under the name “Mr and Mrs Smit”;
    Have you ever seen this film?
    If yes, tell please what do you think of this film?
    I looked 2 more part of this film, but there was no my favourite
    actress, this film was not so that I liked.
    My favoirite actor is John Travolta.
    I can talk about it indefinitely long,
    therefore I shall not take your time for reading my letter.
    I shall wait for your letter.
    Your friend Ekaterina.

    Hi, my dear friend Azza!!!

    How is your mood? I am very happy,
    I have some news.
    Today at my work my boss has praised me for my work.
    I had long conversation with her and she told me that I work very well
    and I sighed many contracts for our company.
    She told me that she will give me holiday
    and I shall receive the premium for the well done job.
    I was very glad to get this good news.

    I think that we can get know each other closer.
    As you know, if you meet someone you must see,
    if everything beautiful in a person – face, clothing, spirit and mind.
    As for me I judge not by person’s appearance.
    The most beautiful thing, which I like in man is his spirit, not the
    face.
    I think that if the man has nice spirit, he is the best man in the
    world.
    As for me I have everything but not love that’s why I decided to write
    you.
    I hope that everything will be all right.
    And what do you think about it?

    It seems to me that you are a very good and interesting person,
    and I would like to know you better.
    It is my first time when I use the Internet to get acquainted with
    somebody.

    However now I want to say you some word about my city.
    Bryansk is little city in Russia (Bryanskaya Oblast).
    The population is here about 413 000 people.
    By the way, my address: Kravcova Str, 42-173, Bryansk , Bryanskaya Oblast Russian Federation.
    Tell me about your city????
    Hope to hear from you very soon!!!
    Take care,
    Your Ekaterina.

    Don’t trust any russian women, ukraine, slovakian or any other draw card email that you yourself haven’t contacted first

    hope this helps guys
