Ok, I broke a few rules with this but no reason to cry over spilled milk.

I recieved an email from a russian girl "Yuliya" that was writing me back (don't recall writing her to begin with), anyways our first few emails were me egging her on (I figured if she was real then awesome, but I knew she'd eventually ask for money...). Anyway here goes....

From: "Miss Yuliya" <[email protected]>
To: Me <email address not listed>

Subject: Hi!!!!Yuliya writing!!!!!

Hello! I was so happy when I saw your e-mail in my mail box. Thank you
so much you find time to write a reply! Now I know that you are interested in me and
I hope we will be able to meet soon when I will come to your area.
It is my first time I try to correspondence with man in internet world.
I do hope you will be enough patient to understand my writing.
I want you to know that I have only good intentions and I don`t have big secrets.
You see I am going to leave russia to work abroad and
I would like to find a man over there who has time and wish to meet young girl
to spend free time together. I want him to be my guide or just be good friend to spend time with.
I think that it is hard enough to live in foreign town without friends.
I've never been abroad before and I hate to be alone in foreign country.
I want to see real life and it is impossible to see without
person who knows all sides of the life. It doesn`t matter what age is he or what is his eyes
color, I just want to know that he is kind and open-hearted inside.
I'm a free bird now, I don't have a boyfriend and I'm open to everything!!!
I hope you like my photos and and we could know each other better. I
want you to send me also different photos of you and your home town!
I`m 25 years old, I hope my age is ok for you??I live in Russia, My height is 5.6
I hope that you will write me back!!! And I hope that it will be the
beginning of our relationship and I do hope we will meet in real life
one day soon!!! OK, I will wait for your answer. When I hear back from you I will
write more things about myself and send more pics! I'm sending my photos...
I have just usual photos, I don't have any professional ones! My name
is Yuliya (this is my real name).

PS: This is my personal e-mail address so pls answer me here, I will
wait for your answer!!!


From: Me
To: Yuliya
Subject: Re:
Hi Yuliya,

I don't remember emailing you, but I've been very busy lately and so it's very possible I did in fact write. Good thing is things are slowing down for me. Anyway I would be very honored to get to know such a happy and beautiful woman. It would be great to show you around here and share the sites with you. I don't have any photos with me right now (I'm not using my personal computer), but I do have some, so when I get to my computer tonight or tomorrow I'll reply again with some photos of myself.

I do hope to hear back from you very soon.


So she/he writes back

From: Yuliya
To: Me

Robert hello!!! Thank you so much for your answer, I decided to send you more info about me.
It is my first time I try to correspondence with man in internet
world, so its really a new experience for me. I really hope we will
like each other. I don`t want to be in a hurry and to rush in something, but I always listen to my heart!
Robert I want you to tell as much as possible about myself
so you will know more who I am and about my life here in russia.
The thing is that I will work abroad for six months or so and I would like to meet a nice man to
be my guide or just be good friend to spend time with. I am from small
town Priargunsk here in Russia,I am afraid to be lost.I want to see the
real life over there! You know, life in russia is rather difficult,
especially in small towns. I don't want to live in Russia because I have not any chances here,it
is hardly possible to explain it by the first time but I want you to know my plans.I saw many stories in news on tv about
girls who started a new life and decided to work abroad. So I decided
to do the same and to try to find my luck abroad. I started to
register documents about 2 months ago, so I will travel soon and I
will be allowed to work! You see I already started to register documents and now I need to decide in which city I want to work.
I`m 25 years old and I`m not afraid to work (I will work as a fitness trainer).
Right now I`m working as a dancer in Priargunsk, we usually dance
in russian style on weddings and other holidays and also I work as an aerobic instructor!!
You see I work hard enough!! I`m a professinal dancer and also I have a certificate of fitness trainer!
I will arrive (I will travel alone) and I can choose any fitness center to work there.
I think it is the right way for me, I am not afraid to work hard!
I never been abroad so I decided to find a friend abroad and make his city to be my destination.
I think it is my only chance to change my life. I am full of plans and different dreams.
My hair is dark blonde and I have green-grey colors eyes. I think I'm somewhat pretty, but first of all I want to be beautiful inside.
Robert I do hope that you will be not disappointed to meet me in the real life if we meet.
I will leave my town in a few days or so (I can't tell you everything exactly right now) and I would like to be sure that
I have a man who is waiting for me there. I will work all days and I would like to find a man to spend all free time togetherto get to know each other better.
if you have any interest to meet me I will be more then happy to meet you too.
Sorry I really have to go now. I will write more comments next time,
Bye-bye!!! Yuliya

PS: I send you more my photos of me at work, photos of my city and also an emblem of my city!


At this point I've broken the rule of using my personal email, I now break the rule of sending a real photo.

From: Me
To: Yuliya


I live in a medium size area and we have plenty of fitness centers for you to choose from. I infact know several of the owners and managers at these places and you getting work there is no problem. I think you are very pretty and would glady spend my freetime with you. I'm sending you a photo of myself so you can have an idea of what I look like. I think I'm somewhat good looking but I'll let you decide that. Also here is alittle about myself, I work as an IT Security Engineer about 30mins from where I live. I also teach martial arts a few times a week.

Let me know if you're interested in moving to my town so I can prepare.



and sent this as well (to see if she actually reads the emails)


I'm still wondering when I contacted you. Could you please forward to me the email I sent you I can try and remember what I said?

So what do you do for fun outside of dancing?


She writes back completely ignoring the 2nd email (obviously she doesn't read what I write).

From: Yuliya
To: Me

Robert hello again,I do hope you are not tired of my lettters!!!
As for me it was a pleasure to see your photo, I like you so
much! Looking on your photo, I have a feeling you are somewhere very close to me!!!
I think I should write you more things about me, I hope it will be interesting for you to know me better!
As I wrote I`m 25 years old, My birthday is July 30, I'm a Leo!!! Do you believe in horoscopes?
I'm 168 cm tall (5.6.) and 51 kg weight. I don't know exactly my bust-waist-hips measurements, I don't have a reason to measure
it because I think it's OK and my body is proportionate, I take care of my body, for truth its very easy for me,
because I work as a dancer, so it helps me to keep feet!!! As for my family - I live with my mother and brother. My mother is 46 years old, I love her very much,
she works as a hairdresser in salon. I have a sister Marina, she is 24 years old, she is already married and has a dauther. They live poor
enough, because her husband is is an alcoholic, he drinks too much..
For truth I don`t want to have the same life as my sister has...
I also have a little brother, he is 6 years old, his name is Maxim!
My father was a naval officer, he was courageous and brave. He is an ideal man for me.
My father died 4 years ago in auto crash... My mum cried for several
months but now she is ok, she will never meet another man because my
father was the only man in her life .It was my mother's idea to try to work to another country.
She loves me very much and she thinks that its impossible to earn good
money in russia working as a dancer,espesially in small towns. She reads many stories
about girls who found their happiness abroad and now she wants me to do the same.
As I wrote you I live in russia, the name of my city is Priargunsk,it is small and very old town , it is
situated in Chitinskaya Oblast (District). I don`t remeber if I told you or not but I graduated from Chitinsk
University three years ago, Economy faculty but I don't work on my
specialization because I can't find a good job here in economy sphere,
my city is so small. I don`t use any translators and I can
speak and write English well. I write my emails from Internet cafe, we have a computer but no
Internet at home. Yesterday I told my sister about you yesterday! She said I should be cautious
because there are a lot of crazy men in internet! I hope you are not one of them!
Robert today I'm going to tell my mother about you,
I'm sure she will be happy I've met you.
It's a pity there is no messenger here, so we can talk only using e-mails..
My address here is Russia, Priargunsk, Lenina street 18.
So now you have a representation of who I am....
I just want to tell you I enjoy life and I try to live to the
fullest, I like to try new things. I'm very tender, caring, artistic,
faithful, decent ,it sounds too much for one person!!!!Sometimes I can be not well organized, I think everybody had it's own
minuses and pluses.I don't look any special qualities in a man. I just hope he will be
faithful and kind man and I will do everything to make him happy. I'm
looking for a soulmate! sorry if I missed some of your questions but I
am so excited!!!! I`m sending you photos of me, one is me in my fathers
form hat, also photos with mother and brother! I hope you will like it!!!

Now she's kissing me, am I lucky or what?

So I write her back (do I sound desperate for a woman or what?)

From: Me
To: Yuliya


Thanks for the new photos, I love looking at them, you have very beautiful eyes. Let's see more about me, well I'm 182 cm tall and I weigh 90kg (I think I converted everything correctly). My family lives in California and I live in Texas. But if after you arrive here and we are good together I'd like to move back to california. There is a lot more things to do there and many things I could show you.

I have 4 sisters and they are all older than me but we get along very well. My mother and father divorced when I was young so I haven't seen much of my father since I was a teenager.

So what kind of things would you want to do when you arrive? I think you'd enjoy visiting a theme park and riding some roller coasters (I love them!!!!). Also what are some of your hobbies other than dancing??

By the way, when are you expecting to come to my area?

Hope to hear from you soon,


and I sent this one


I forgot to ask you this, but what is your last name? Also I'm sending 2 more photos of me that are more recent, tell me what you think of them ok?

Talk to you soon,


and obviously she writes back but ignores the 2nd email.

Also I must mention at this point I used my 2nd email account to write her, pretending she wrote me as well, odd thing is she completely ignored that email.

From: Yuliya
To: Me

Hello Robert! I have time to send new letter! I think I'm a lucky girl to meet such good
man as you in Internet world! I hope I will be lucky enough to meet you in the real life soon!
Yesterday I told my mom about you. She said that now she doesn`t
worry about me as before because now she knows you are a kind man
and can help me if I need your help. Robert you can show me your city and
tell me more about the life over there!
I think you know I like cooking. I can cook some Russian
dishes for you! Pelmeni, vareniki, blini, borsch, okroshka! You will
like it! Besides Russian cuisine I like Italian and Mexican. I love
spaghetti and pizzza!!!!! mmmmmmm ! I like Mexican food because it's very spicy, although I don't cook Mexican
dishes too often. I've been told my cooking is very tasty!
I like to cook cakes. My favorite is cheese-cake with raspberry! You
know... when I talk about food I'm getting hungry ))) I eat everything
and I don't like any diets but usually I don't eat after 7 pm. This
helps me not to be fat!Robert I can cook many tasty things for you when we meet! You know.. almost
all Russian men are like bears! They are so rude, they can't be nice
and polite, they don't want to have a family. I think you are not like them.
Soooooooooooooooo......... what else could I say?
I have a driver's licence but I don't have a car.Sometimes I go to the theatre but not often.
There is only one small theatre in my city and there is
nothing interesting. If I want to watch a good play I should
go to the nearest big city, there sometimes can come some famous
Russian actors but I can't go there often because it's quite expensive.
I want you to know small things about my life, because it will show you who I am.
Robert Please write me the name of the closest Airport to you (possibly
International) and it's code (if you know)
For example the closest inter Airport to me is Chita airport and it's code is
(HTA). I already started to pack my things and I want to start my trip
so I will go to Moscow from Chita. I have so many worries and
I'm so afraid to start everything but if I don't start it now I will
never do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Robert I will write more tomorrow and will tell you all things you are
interested about me!
and please don't worry if I will be not able to send my letter tomorrow I think I will be very busy and
as soon as I can I will send new letter with all the news!I think in a
day! I will go to airlines office now and will buy a tickets to
Moscow, its very expensive, but I have some savings so I
have money to pay for plane ticket to moscow and to pay for renting room in
moscow. As soon as I will arrive to Moscow, I will finish my
documents to travel, as work permission, medical insurance etc.
Robert I`m waiting a confirmation of airport from you, so I will buy ticket to your airport!!!!
I know it won`t be cheap, but my mum will receive a salary for last 2 months (her work detained wages) and will send
me money when I will find out the cost of tickets!
Ok, I think I will finish my e-mail for today, because I should go home to cook some food!
Always, Yuliya!!!


Nice to know I'm a good man and we've never met. I'm such a Don Juan aren't I?

now here is my reply

From: Me
To: Yuliya


Thank you for writing me again, I always look forward in the mornings to read your next email. I'm excited to be able to see you in person soon, I'm counting the days. Anyway my nearest international airport code is (MFE) Mcallen International Airport. I haven't had Russian food, so it would be my first time. I love all kinds of food but mostly Italian, Mexican, Japanese.

I am curious, what you thought of my latest pictures, did you like them? More importantly did you like my picture?

Hope to hear from you soon.



And yes the airport code I gave is real and is actually about 30mins from where I work and an hour from where I live. I figure at this point hiding that fact would be pointless.

And here is her reply

From: Yuliya
To: Me

Robert dear I'm so excited to write you again!!!!!!!!!! I'm in
Moscow! You can't imagine how happy I am because I already started my trip to you!
I still cannot believe I've done it! WoW! As I wrote you I was scared
to fly on the plane but everything was OK and I'm still alive ))))
Sorry I didn't write you sooner, it was not easy to find a place to
stay here... I couldn't find a cheap hotel, everything is so expensive
in Moscow.Finally I found a place to stay, I rent a room from an old woman. She is
about 70 years old. She said her husband died 2 years ago she feels alone now. so she gives in rent rooms in
her small 2rooms flat.She is very nice woman. She said I have to be very careful.
Robert, you know... she said many girls from small
cities come to big cities, they are looking for a better future and fortune but because they are from small cities they can`t
imagine their way to find the happiness can be not so easy as they
thought...She said I should be careful when I meet you!! But I don't worry about it! I feel with all my heart you are really nice man!
Sorry I wrote you about my worries.. I have nobody to write about it.My mother is worried enough about me and I don't want
to make her worry any more. I think that's really good I've met you! I
can write you about everything.By the way, one more thing about my
trip. Travel agency will help me to rent a
room to stay near my future work in your area. It will be very good,
because I will be able to pay rent just in one month after my arrival,
after my first salary. I was in travel agency today and they told that
my visa is ready, it will be approved after I will buy plane tickets!
Oh, I`m so exited about it!!! Maybe it seems to be like I`m in a
hurry, but you see all my documents are arranged on exact dates so I
need to take a flight before 20 June Saturday. I can`t delay my flight on a
later date.. As soon as travel agent
book tickets for my flight my mum should receive her salary and send me money to moscow.
I hope she will be able to do it in time! Robert you should
know you won`t have any problems with me, I will rent a room over
there and will start to work as soon as I will arrive. I`m sure I will
find work as an aerobic instructor in fitness centre with no problems.
Today I looked for prices on mobile phones in moscow, but it was too
expensive for me, so I will try to find a public phone, I will try it on monday ok??
As you know I will stay there for several months and later if I want I will
be able to prolong my visa there. I will arrive by my Work visa, so I won`t have
any problems with law while I will be working.I miss my family... but I'm getting better with every hour.
By the way, my sister didn`t allow me to take her photo camera in
moscow, so I can`t send you any moscow photo, its a pity..
So I`m sending you my old photo, ok? So you will look on me more!
Now I'm very hungry and I will go and eat something.
Robert, please write me as soon as possible!See you soon!
Big kiss from moscow!!Yuliya!!I will write again tomorrow!!!


Now I do need to mention here what I found odd, her original IP from the other emails was consistent throughout the conversation. But this one ended up having a whole different IP which I didn't expect but oh well.

Now my reply to this (also at this point I was still egging her on to get her to reveal the fact she needed money, which I'll conviently have plenty of later on).

From: Me
To: Yuliya


I'm glad you made it safe and have a place to stay while in Moscow. I'm anxious for the day I can finally see you face to face. What kind of places are there to eat in Moscow?

I hope to hear again from you soon.

xoxoxo Me

She sent me another email the following day

From: Yuliya
To: Me

Robert hello!!! How are you?
In Moscow its very warm weather, about +25 in celcium.
You know, I feel myself so lonely here, Everyone rush somewhere and I don`t
know anybody here. Robert I was in a travel agency, all my
documents are ready, so now I only need to buy roundtrip tickets.They will check a possible flight to your airport.
They will give me all information (date and time of my arrival, terminal
number.) I think I will fly in a week or so, because all my documents are
arranged on exact dates and I won`t be able to delay my flight.
Robert I try to learn as much information about your
country and living there as I can. I find some information in internet
and read it. Today I was reading about your traditions and holidays.
I like to read about your holidays and traditions, it's very
interesting. I think you know such holiday as Saint Valentine's
Day, it was on February 14.When my country was called Soviet Union (USSR) nobody celebrated it
and nobody knew about this holiday.and maybe about 8 years ago many people here began to
celebrate Saint Valentine's Day and now it's very popular holiday here!
Robert I wish we could celebrate some holiday together!
I bought few pieces of souvenirs for you, all day I was looking
Moscow sightseeings and visited some souvenir shops. I'm sure you will like them!
Sorry can't buy many. By the way, I took my family album with me so
when we meet - I will show you all my family and you will see how I looked like when I was a little girl!
Ok, I send you a thousand of kisses and will wait for your message!!!!
Robert I will write you more tomorrow, after my visit to the
travel agency!
Kisses to you!!! I'm sending you some funny pics and my old photos. Ok,
Yuliya with kisses.


I decided to see if she'd notice that I failed to reply to this one (and oddly enough she didn't even flinch at the lack of a response).

now here is her money email (about time too)

From: Yuliya
To: Me

Robert hello my dear,Yuliya here I have got info about my
flight from travel agency and resend to you.I am so happy to meet you just in a few days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Robert you see,I've got all the information
about my flight and I'm resending it for you!! My flight was arranged
on Saturday and I am so happy to say we will meet in few days!!!! I am really lucky girl to meet you!
But I have a little problem and I really hope you will be able to help
me. You see I never expected I will ask you for such help but I have
nothing else to do. You know my mum promised to send me money for
tickets by western union as soon as I will find out prices but today
she was told on her work that because of economic crisis she will
receive salary just in one month.. So thats why she can`t send me
money for tickets now and I can`t delay my flight because all my
documents are arranged on exact dates..
Robert I wanted to ask you to help me to pay for my tickets
directly but I was told in travel agency I can't use your help or ask you about sending me tickets or ordering
electronic ones because I have a permission to use the help of the
travel agency only. Your see its business of travel agency to arrange all travel things for my trip, such is the law.
If I will but ticket by myself, I won`t be able to use my work visa.. so you can`t send me tickets..
I`m sure my mom will help me but just in one month and I can`t wait
so long because I need to buy tickets till Thursday.
I was in the bank to try to ask them a loan but they said I need to have registration in Moscow to get a loan from
their bank and I don't have it! I know I`m asking you for very big
think but maybe it will be possible for you to help me. You are my
last hope and I have nothing else to do. If I won`t buy tickets my
visa will be canceled and it will be forbidden for me to apply for visa again for next 4 years..
Robert I have only about 210 dollars that I expected to
take with me for the first time so if you will help me with 980 I will
have enough to buy tickets. The full cost of tickets is 1190 dollars.
I know its a big sum of money for you, but pls try to help me and I
promise I will return you money back after my first salary or as soon
as my mum will send it to us, as she promised.
I will cross my fingers hoping for your help because I want to meet
you so much!!!!! I will be waiting for your answer!!!
Robert pls make a transfer by western union, I never used
it, but I find out about it while I was expecting my mums help.
You should know my rent address here is 128/11 Oktyabrskaya street, Moscow, Russia.
Remember my full name is Yuliya- (first name) .
Ilyasova-(last name, its the right writing in transliteration from
russian, I was told it by manager in travel agency). It is right writing in English, and you should put it on western union
list and you can choose any bank in moscow,so I can pick up the money at any bank of moscow.
The address of the closest Western Union here is
Moscow, 105064
Managers said I can get only western union transfer because I don`t have bank account in moscow!
But it will be safe to use western union transfer because I need to
have passport to receive it!
And please after you complete transfer write me the number of the transfer,
P.S. Robert I`m so sorry I asked you for such help, but you
see you are my last hope and now my only wish is to meet you. I want
to start a new life and I`m sure we can spend so many happy days and
probably nights together! Please try to help me with rest 980 and I
will fly to you on Saturday and in one month I will return you money back!!
I kiss your lips and starting to dream about our meeting!!!!


Tried looking up the travel agency and wouldn't you know it, it doesn't exist (at least not that I could find).

So here is my final email at this point

From: Me
To: Yuliya

My dear Yuliya,

I'm an so sorry you're having this sort of trouble. I know how when things are planned and problems occur at the last minute your heart drops and you worry about everything.

Seeing as how I inherited a small fortune (after fee's and taxes I have a little over $5,000,000.00USD). But I've had severe trouble with Western Union and Moneygram in the past where I send money to friends and it never arrives or they give them so much trouble that getting the money is impossible. I would hate to have you stuck there in Moscow waiting to meet me and kiss my lips, I tried looking up the travel agency you listed in your email but was unable to find them online. Here is what I propose and please tell me if this is ok for you.

While you are unable to use your work visa outside the travel agency, what I was thinking was to get in my private jet and fly to moscow, spend a few weeks there having you show me around your country, if you're happy with my company then I say we get married. That way you no longer need a work visa and would be able to fly to my country in my jet and a bonus of becoming my wife is you and your family (since once we would be husband and wife, your family is my family) would never have to worry about money ever again.

Let me know if this is something you would consider (I hope you do, after reading your emails I feel I've fallen madly in love with you and want to spend all my life with you making you happy).


- Me

So there we have it, not the worlds greatest but I got bored when she wrote and decided to have fun, didn't find this site till I was knee deep in it as it was.
