i made a profile on the dating72 site and got a message in minutes. her profile said she lived in the US. i replied to her message with the following simple email:
I received your message to email you. Why dont you tell me a bit about yourself?

Max.

now i'm guessing it's a scam because someone in the us would probably have better english skills. here is her email:

Hello Max! I am pleased, thank you for contacting me. I hope you have
time to send me some messages and we could to learn each other.
well... Now about me though you already know a little from my profile.
I am 28 years old, my nickname is Matur, but the truth, it only
friends name me so. I was never married I live in a apartment of my
parents. I have good job. I work as as the teacher at school. I teach
mathematics for grown-ups and for younger teenagers. It is very
difficult work, but i like it. Here at work are good collective, I
work with good people. most of them my friends. Tell to me about the
work. Do you like your work? I also like to travel and i like new
different places, but my work does not allow me to travel often. I
have many friends, we spent time together, usually we go to the cafe
to the movie to the concerts, we have many other entertainment. Also I
prefer healthy style of a life. 2-3 times in week I visit the gym (and
sometimes it is less :^) ) I hold my body in the healthy form. And you
have any sports in the life now? Tell to me. I send you my pictures i
hope you like. Also i want that you send to me some your pictures. And
tell about you about your interesting things what you like to do, your
hobby, what your character? I hope we shall have time for writing
other interesting letters to each other. We shall look what will be...
Write to me, I shall wait your letter.
Your friend Matur.



the profile that i have up states that max rockatansky is a location scout for a major hollywood film studio and spends most of his time traveling seeking new film locations. when he isnt traveling he is either at his apartment in nyc or at his "compund" in broken hill australia (where they filmed the road warrior). so this can just be some ruskie gold digger.

It's a scam. Just do a search on her email to you -- you'll see that format all over...

It's a vlad. Check out the headers and you'll see it leads straight to Yoshkar-Ola.

Great! My First Scam! lets see what she could possibly want from a jetsetting and remarkably dashing gentleman such as max! i'm guessing it'll be some time until "she" starts asking for stuff.

I noticed the edits you made to the headers. i will remember that in the future. sorry for the mistake.

The piece of string that is the script can vary. Some bore you to tears some just fall in love at the third email.

Keep us informed and good luck!

With other commitments, I haven't baited a Vlad in a while, but that looks like an exceptionally good script for a vlad, without looking at the headers, I have no doubt it is a vlads script but there are not too many obvious mistakes in there.

I will see if I can pick some

I am 28 years old, my nickname is Matur, but the truth, it only friends name me so. the "it" is a huge give away as is name me so I was never married I live in a apartment of my
parents.
I have good job. I work as as the teacher at school. I teach mathematics for grown-ups and for younger teenagers. It is very
difficult most native english speaking people would say hard work, but i like it. Here at work are good collective, I
work with good people. most of them my friends. Tell to me about the work. Do you like your work? I also like to travel and i like new different places, but my work does not allow me to travel often. I
have many friends, we spent time together, usually we go to the cafe
to the movie to the concerts, we have many other entertainment. Also I prefer healthy style of a life as they always do, how do you think they stay looking like models. 2-3 times in week I visit the gym You haven't had a girl in a while, you may be a little down on yourself,(absolutely no pun intended) next minute this girl with a great body is writing to you, your mates have been teasing you for a while about how long it has been, a nice healthy fit girl would show up those mates who have been teasing you and sometimes it is less :^) ) I hold my body in the healthy form.Just to get that mental picture going a little more And you have any sports in the life now? You can answer any way you like to this question, tell her you are a fat lazy slob and enjoy sitting on the lounge eating Pizza and drinking beer, watching those exercise shows (imagine Professor So and So's Avatar) with your mates and scoring each others farts, you will still get the same next script Tell to me. I send you my pictures i hope you like. Also i want that you send to me some your pictures just tell her you did send it or you dont know how, it will most likely pass without having to send one. And
tell about you about your interesting things again, you can safely ignore this, typical question what you like to do, your hobby, what your character? I hope we shall have time for writing other interesting letters to each other. Write to me, We shall look what will be... I shall wait your letter.
Your friend Matur.


I have bolded the Vladish bits, and my comments are blue, it's great what a translater can do combined with a spell check, unfortunate, but many men are just in the right frame of mind for the vlad to hook the claws right in with that script, and even the spelling is another clue, who has so many phrases wrong with so few spelling mistakes?


Oh if you are wondering, about the answer, a Russian who has used an english spell check combined with a translater.

Wink

Oh, I only picked out the obvious (to seasoned baiters) ones, theres a few more subtle hints in there.

It doesn't take long to pick it up, eventually, you will even learn to write like them Laughing
