I set up a new email address to go and do some genuine dating, I made an ad on Gumtree (got a few normal people replying) but most of them were trying to get me to a sign up and pay to join a website (which I ignored)

Then yesterday I got an email which looks a little dodgy and to good to be true. you know the drill. Beautiful woman, bad english and how she cannot wait for my reply.

Then my mind remembers all the stories I used to read here about a year ago (I never had chance to get into baiting my last time here)

So what do you think? I replied to her first msg with, 'hello, wouls like to get to know you better' and this is the response.

I am glad, that you have answered me I know that I need to tell about
yourself! I now will try to write: My name Yana me so named in honour
of my favourite grandmother. Friends and relatives say, that I
sociable, sincere, sensitive. I Was born and I live in not big city
Zelenodolsk, It is a usual city and to be approximately 800 kilometres
from capital of Russia. To me 26 years, growth of 172 centimetres,
weigh 55 kgs. On a nationality I Russian, my religion Christianity. I
work as the seller in small shop. But I have a higher education, and
on a speciality I the manager! But now it is very difficult to find
work and though as that to earn to itself for a life I it was arranged
with the seller!! And to Like you your Work????? In a life I not have
seen much, but also it is not not enough. Relations between people
whom to like each other are interesting to me and cannot live the
friend without the friend. To like me the music, interesting concerts
and museums and all new, me not the known. And much I wish to know,
about people which are in the distance from me for 1000 miles, behind
huge oceans, about traditions, about their culture, about you.... It
will be very pleasant To me to exchange with you about a life, about
work. I am am enticed by beauty of the clear sky, a scattering of
stars, moon light in silent evening of summer. From the childhood I
like to go in for sports. When I was small I I was engaged in
volleyball Now I am engaged in aerobics. After all it is very healthy,
when possibilities of your body exceed admissible force. And it is
very pleasant to look at a beautiful body, whether not so? And you as
concern sports? To my huge regret I do not have own computer and write
about the Internet of cafe or from the best girlfriend (girl). I
understand, what from the very beginning of acquaintance there are any
obstacles, but, after all if people really have desire to get
acquainted and approach, I think, nothing will prevent them, you with
me agree? I hope, you were not upset and nevertheless will send me a
long-awaited news. If you not to understand something from my letter,
you do not hesitate, ask, I will try to answer you so, that you would
understand my thoughts, my words. On these words I finish the letter,
but tomorrow I again will be here and with impatience to wait for your
answer. I wish good day or pleasant dreams...

P.S Forgive me for my language, but I try to study this language
better. I studied it at school and still I remember it., if you do not
understand my letters you can always ask all questions. Well?

I wait for your letter.


I really feel in the mood for some baiting, any tips on how to start?

Looks like a standard vlad. Look at the headers--do you see the Bat! in there? If so, definitely vlad.

There are a few over in the dating forum that are specializing in vlads these days--you might want to pop over and check them out.

Yes that sounds like a love scam email. I've gotten a few of late and it sounds pretty much the same. Just reply with the basic hello. Don't forget "she'll" be on a script for a while so I wouldn't toss too many details out there. Don't worry, she'll get to asking for a WU transfer soon enough like a lad Wink

I just googled part of of that and surprise surprise. Standard script. Just reply that more info needed. the can be boring for a while. Long scripts not worth reading. Vlads take some time to get to the point.
Have fun.

A good friend of ours here now runs and - have a look there and in the Eater University forum for some great background. Vlads tend to stick to script for the first dozen rounds or so, so don't bother working too hard on your responses. Get some good photos Smile

I'll bet you 50p "she" is in El Mari district when you check the IP Wink
