I could go for the cheap joke about how often they show you their rugs and pussies in pictures but I'll take the moral high ground. The rugs are expensive items and too good to be put on the floor where people would step on them, so they hang them on the walls and pass them down from generation to generation.

Hmm, I asked a few of my scammers about it and they told me that was the case. I guess I shouldn't trust anything at all they say. And I'm definately not making any of the recipes they sent me now just in case they made up the ingredients Shocked


(edit) I actually posted up one of the replies I had from one of them ages ago. Here it is.

Quote:
I to not know why my carpet weighs on a wall. I to not think of
it. There are different carpets is on a wall is on a floor. It for
beautiful, I to not think that it is tradition.


Having a closer look using Google, it seems we're both right.

Smile Of course he doesn't think of it. He's a sort of student thinking of a new car, not of the carpets on his picture model girl's wall
anyway
The forum is great! I've been enjoying for 2 hours here already!
(should the newbs say some words about them or it's OK without presentation? Smile)

more likely, it's a bad taste or "meschanstvo", as we call it in Russia. Tarts. You can tell they are living in Yoshkar Ola !!! Wink

I've never seen this in any of the ex USSR countries I have been to. Must be more localised to central Russia

Thank you, Dolores! I will
Darksoul - you are right, they are mostly prodused there
As for "meschanstvo" - it was a bad word after the revolution when everything that is not miserable, poor and ugly was considered to be against the red idea. in fact it came out of the word citizen and means just main stream
But - true! - the carpet on the wall is not a definite sigh of bad taste or a tart here.
some 15 years ago everything here just was alike - the same cloth in the stores, the same furniture - soviet Ikea
those young people who lives with their grand parents or rent apartment still have that alike disigh of the past
some think it's even cool nowdays - almost antique

but - yes - it must look funny for you
what i can't understand here - they usually buy or steal models' pix
are they also with carpets? Shocked thought it was something more glossy
or they just try to look real?

The Russian scammers more often than not use their sister or girlfriend for the pictures, or even pay for a local girl to pose for them. Some will even pay another scammer for sets of pictures of a girl. They also tend to be concentrated in the Mari El area, which may help with the decor issue.

Scammers from Nigeria use pictures stolen from wherever they can get them and ones from the Ukraine will use pictures of glamour or porn models.

Rugs on the walls are a Russian tradition. It's not easy to figure out where it comes from exactly, but my opinion is that it's from the Tartar peoples at the time of the Mongol Empire. They were a nomadic people & hung animal skins inside their tents for warmth. Over a 200 year period, many Tartar customs were absorbed into Russian culture as the Tartars retained most of their traditions. Later, in the USSR times, rugs became useful for the people living in Soviet apartment blocks with thin walls. Today you will see most traditional Russian homes still with a rug on the wall, with only expensive modern "Western" homes & apartments with plain painted walls.
