From this morning's Sunday Crimes (South Africa)

Quote:

STOLEN DREAM: Nathan Greenberg pretended to be 93 in his e-mails


LOVES TRAVELLING: Nailya Nagaeva spent a six-week holiday in SA. Picture: KATHERINE MUICK-MERE


Elderly South African man lured into Internet harem of ‘fake Russian psychology professor’
IN HIS quest to bag himself a Russian bride, a Johannesburg businessman pretended to be the ripe old age of 98.





It worked. Nathan Greenberg got his Nailya Nagaeva — albeit for a short six-week holiday in South Africa over Christmas last year.

But then he found out the petite “professor” might have been sending him “mass- produced one-size-fits-all love letters” and was probably planning on becoming the world’s first “time-share wife”.

Although only 73, Greenberg said he was not worried that women would be attracted to an old man just for his money. He planned on bequeathing them what he had as long as they made him happy.

“I think 73 is a bit much to be doing this sort of thing, so rather than lie about my age I put something (that was funny)” he said speaking from his Hyde Park, Johannesburg, home this week.

Greenberg registered his profile on the US-owned website Globaladies.com about five years ago looking for “a loving, permanent relationship” with a Russian or Ukranian woman as he doesn’t “seem to get on with the local ones”.

He opted for the 46-year-old Nagaeva, whose web profile described her as a psychology professor from Penza, about 700km outside Moscow.

But in December, while she was on holiday in SA with him, Greenberg discovered that their cupid — the international website that had hooked them up — might have been charging him to translate e-mail exchanges between them that never happened. Nagaeva’s English is “basic” and the non- smoker loved travelling.

The two had been communicating via the Internet company’s translation service, which Greenberg paid for.

Nagaeva appeared as stunned as he was when an e-mail from her landed while she was in SA, so Greenberg threatened to expose the site for allegedly fraudulently charging him for fake correspondence.

“They’re selling dreams, but they’re stealing people’s dreams because they’re giving them something to dream about when there actually isn’t one.”

He said he had wasted at least 1000 on the site, but thought the actual amount was much more. The site charges between 4.49 and 6.50 for every e-mail sent and received via them.

His anger then turned to Nagaeva when the website’s management told him the messages were, in fact, from her. Attempts to obtain comment from the site were unsuccessful.

Nagaeva had possibly sent the same e-mails to a horde of other Internet candidates “to lure them into her harem”.

One message he received from Nagaeva read: “Hello, my dear Nathan! Where are you? How are you? Why do you keep silence? Your silence is torture to my heart!”

He got this e-mail while she was sitting at his house.

Now doubting whether she is a professor, Greenberg wrote to the website: “Presumably they have a faculty of stupid lies at Penza University.”

Greenberg said he was still linked to Globaladies, but had received “virtually nothing since the dispute” with the web company.

“When I got back from Cape Town a couple of weeks ago, there were probably about 30 e-mails in my inbox, now there’s one left. Nobody loves me anymore,” he said on Thursday.

But being jilted by his Russian girlfriend and allegedly defrauded by Globaladies has not stopped Greenberg looking for love.

He has signed up with a new site.

Words fail me - I have been embroiled with Anastasia Web, thinking that the cost was reasonable.

These guys are professionals and they also know how to get into your heads (If you let them)

But we have read and cringed at these stories to many times.

I live by the mantra inform educate and entertain.

There's no reason to use a paid site, particularily one that charge for translations. There are many sites like these, and even the ones with 'real' girls, like in the Ukraine, are too often just 'letter mills'.

The girl is making money by writing letters, the man has to pay to read them, and answer them, on top of a usual monthly membership fee.
Many of these sites may also sell gifts.....flowers, etc, at inflated prices that the girl may have a cash option on. It's BS.


One recent, too willing, victim of a Ukraine hottie paid for translations, chats, and webcams for months, and was 'planning marriage'.
He flew to the Ukraine unannounced to surprise her on her birthday.

He knocked at her Parent's door, armed with an independent translator, flowers, and gifts for the girl.

'Mom' answered, the girl was out of town on holiday, and 'why is this man visiting her daughter and saying he wants to marry her when she has a local boyfriend'?

During the course of his visit in the Ukraine, the girl came back into town, and arranged to meet him for lunch....with a paid translator.
During lunch...the lady said 'my mother is a liar, I have no BF'.

That was the ONLY time this guys met this girl during his visit.

He goes home, the chats and emails continue, and she proceeded to additionally milk him for medical expenses, ENGLISH LESSONS, and a laptop!

It was only when she was angry he wouldn't send her expensive flowers again, through the agency, did the man realize the girl he had sent $500 for english lessons 5 months ago, could only say 'hello' and 'I love you' without the aid of the paid translator.

That's when he woke up.......


Shocked

Only slightly off topic, here's a piece of recommended reading. "A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian", by Marina Lewycka. Very funny and gives an insight into the pysche of Ukrainian women.
