Liliya. From Russia with Love. How Much Though??

Introduction.
As a long time viewer of Matrixwatch I thought I would share this little adventure I had with a supposed Russian Lady who was looking for love.

Cast List
To make this easier to read I will use different colours for the characters:
Liliya / Ekaterina/ Scammer-----------------Red
David / Miles---------------------------------Blue
General Comments---------------------------Black


All the photos that appear in this post are innocent participants and are not to my knowledge involved in this scam.

'How do you solve a problem like Liliya'


Now I am not a member of any Dating Site so you can imagine my surprise when this fell into my lap.

Quote:
Hi!!!
How are you? My name is Liliya. I am 26 years old. I live in Russia,
city zelenodolsk. I wish tell to you history which have pushed me write
to you. 8 months ago I have got acquainted with the man by internet,
his name mike. During this time we had good relations. We have
understood that our relations become serious and we have decided to
meet in the mike's coutry. I wrote the application for reception the
visa.. I waited reception of the visa approximately half of year.
All time I kept in touch with mike through the internet. I and mike
waited
reception of the visa to our meeting.

I have received the invitation from the ambassador for reception of
the visa. My director has given me long-term holiday from work and I
have gone to Moscow to receive the visa. I informed good news to mike,
but he has answered, that does not want our meeting. He played with
me. He has informed that has the wife with two children and at all has
no plans to meet me. I was not ready to such turn of events, i was
shoked. I could not think what even after 8 months of acquaintance he
can so unscrupulously act with me. And i deciede to find someone who
can meet with me and i have gone to meeting agency and they give me
your e-mail... Now I am in Moscow to recieve my visa. I don't want
that all was gone for nothing and will be glad if my visa will be
useful to our meeting. I could arrive soon, but a problem in that NOW
I HAVEN'T MAN WHICH WOULD LIKE MY ARRIVAL.

Probable it will silly sound but if you will be interested in a
meeting with the good woman I will like to meet you sometime soon! As
mike was dishonest with me I have decided to find the man which is
interested to meet the woman from Russia.

I do not know your ideas about my letter, but it would be fine if we
could meet and have some weeks or months together.Also the basic
purpose for the future it is search good men for serious attitudes
which go to a marriage. I have no children, but I want to have
children in the future. I am the mature woman and ready to creation of
family with good man. I do not know what you really search in the
future but if we could meet I shall be happy to discuss with you more
about our meeting. What are you going to do this time? It would be
fine if we could meet, do friendship or more than simply friendship. I
will be happy if you also have a free time and we could meet soon. I
do not know your interests, but anyhow write to me back and I will
tell to you more about myself. Write to me all that you want.

Maybe we have similar plans and it will be interesting to us together.
also i am sending you my photos, and waiting yours!
You can write all that you want. Ask any questions which interest you.
Please, write to me back on my regular e-mail: liliya_kisa@bk.ru
First letter and already talking about marriage, my curiosity was tickled, so a response was inevitable.

Quote:
Hello Liliya,
Thank you for your e-mail and I'm sorry to hear of your circumstances.

I must say your timing was perfect as my wife of 9 years has just left me.
If you could tell me more about yourself that would be great and I would love to see a photo of you too.
If our friendship develops well in these e-mails I would like to meet you in the near furure.

Regards
David

myself very lonely and i am want to meet the right man!
I am really lonely woman now and I very much would like to have
acquaintance man for serious relations. For this purpose I addressed
in agency of acquaintances and gave them my letter. To me tell that I
can really find man through their agency and they allowed me some
e-mails. I choosed yours and it's very pleasant for me that you
answered for my letter. I hope that we can learn more about each
other. I'm understand that you is interesting where I took yours
e-mail, but now I can not tell you it precisely because I not have

Wow a cracker I have really dropped lucky this time.
To save you guessing these pictures are fairly well known ones (well they are now) of a certain Next Door Nikki who is unrelated to this scam in any way.
I respond immediately of course

Quote:
Hello Liliya,
Thank you for your reply and wow you look gorgeous. Mike must have been a fool to let you go.

Anyway a bit about me:
I am 49, sorry if this to old for you and I live in London where I am an accountant and my hobbies are Horse riding, Tennis and swimming.
I also have a little cottage in a small village called Norrisville which I am renovating at the moment.
In my spare time I like to do a bit of Judo at my local gym 'The Dragons Entry' with my friend Bruce, but I need some female company as I think Bruce likes me a little to much.

My hand has only just stopped shaking from looking at your pictures and I have attached one of me. Taken whilst out riding (Bruce took the photo).

I hope you reply soon.
In warm anticipation.
David.

The Story Continues
Quote:
My Dearest Liliya,
I'm so pleased you have wrote me back as I was beginning to think I was too old for you.

Great news about your Visa and coming to the UK is a fantastic idea and I will be able to meet you at Heathrow Airport when your plane lands.

I will take you to my lovely cottage which Bruce and I will be making ready this weekend and I am so excited I can hardly type. The only thing we have to do is put the roof on as its a bit windy at the cottage at the moment without it but that wont be a problem as Bruce has some builders round on a regular basis to help him with his erection (the roof that is).

If you would like to bring someone with you as this is our first meeting I will get the spare room ready.

To be honest since joining the dating agency you are the first lady I feel I could fall in love with and I cannot wait to shower you in gifts. I have a lovely Pearl necklace I would like to give you that was going to be my wifes before she left me. Her loss is your gain.

Please write back soon as I will be infront of my computer all day waiting to hear from you my lovely.
I have attached another picture of me with my Jeep for you to keep close to your heart.

All my Love.
David

Hello dear David!!!
I'm very glad to receive your letter. Thanks you.
It's very important for me. Yes, I will arrive to you and now I know
airport when I should fly. Ok!!!
Lovely, yes, we should learn more about each other.
I will buy the ticket of the plane with adjustable
date of return flight from UK to Russia and
I can take flight from UK to Russia at any time.
I freely can move over territories of UK and
if we will decide to take trip far from city
I will be happy to go everywhere where you will take me.
For me it is interesting to look beautiful places of your country.
UK and Russia have set of distinctions.
I think that I will be under constant impression as the small child.
I love the noisy companies, but also like to be on a nature.
I think that you have many beautiful places there.
After reception of the visa I will buy the ticket of the plane.
When I will have the ticket of the plane
I will inform the full information of my flight.
I will inform you number of flight and an arrival time.
What we still should discuss before our meeting?
I think that we will not have problems that learn each other at the airport.
I am happy that we will together soon. Inform more ideas for our meeting.
I am excited our meeting very much and I wait with impatience of the moment
of our first meeting.
I think about our meeting constantly.

Spot the name change, it seems Liliya is also known as Ekaterina, anyway I better ask what name she/he prefers.

Quote:
Hello Liliya,
Wow you get more and more beautifull in every photograph.

I have cleared my Diary for January 31st to February 14th so if you are able to fly to me I will be able to meet you.

I look forawrd to showing you the many beautiful sites of my country, including Londons beautiful Flower shops, cafes, waxworks museums and we may also stop by Londons famous sewerage farm which has the most aphrodisiacal smells and chocolate logs you have ever seen. Sorry I forgot to ask-do you like chocolate??.

I have alrwady told you about my love of Tennis Swimming and Horse riding but I also love Cinema and my favourite movie of all time has to be The Matrix whith all the judo stunts, Me and Bruce just love to slip into our leather shorts and reinnact some fight scenes-I'll try and get some phots of me in leather shorts and Bruce as well as you might find them very funny.

Good news about the cottage-The roof wil be finished this weekend and I will be able to prepare the spare room for your arrival once the walls are up. I forgot to mention the walls as we are doing a big renovation and decide to put the roof on first and put the walls in after.

As you can tell I'm a bit obsessed with my cottage but not nearly as much as I am obsessed with you.
Oh Liliya you have me hooked I can't wait to meat you..

One tiny thing in your last e-mail you ended it with the name Ekaterina ? is this your middle name if so do you prefer Ekaterina or Liliya.

Hope to hear from you soon my little rosebud of delight.

Heres a more up to date photo of me out with my old friend Sumr Andomgit

Warmest Regards
David

Liliya My Angel,
So lovely to hear from you again and sorry for the delay with this e-mail as I am at the cottage this weekend and Internet connection is unreliable.

I have given much thought to our meetiing and would like to take you out for a meal when you arrive. I have just the place in mind which is in a quaint little village calleed Mingeville the restuarant is called 'The Cliterus Tavern' and I used to go there with my ex wife although she drove as its one of those places that I can't seem to find very well.

Back to the cottage-The roof is now up and the windows are in with the walls due for completion later Today, Bruce is here as always as he has been my constant companion since I sold my pubic wig business a few years ago. To be honest I think he is getting a bit jealous of my constant chats with you but I need female company now my wife has left me.

One question I have is what would you like me to call my cottage, at first I thought 'Matrix Watch Paradise' would be a good name as I am a big fan of the film but now you have come into my life I think 'Dave and Liliyas Love Shack' would be better, please tell me what you think.

Love and Kisses.
Your Dreamboat
David

I didn't get a reply for a while as it was the weekend (don't scammers work weekends) so as a persistent chap I thought I would shoot another one off.
Quote:
Hello Liliya,
As its the weekend I know you might be to busy to answer me, but I thought I would let you know how our cottage is going.

The work on the walls is complete and we are having a jacquizzi fitted on Monday after that all I need to do is paint the walls a nice shade of turd and it will be our dream home.

If you are arriving at Heathrow on January 31st I have some plans on how we can spend our first day together.

1: Lunch at the Climax Cafe where the food is always warm and moist.

2: Walk round the Shops on Londons Regent Street-My favourites are Madam Shagnasties Boutique (clothes Shop) and Lady Murkins (Pubic Wig Shop).

3. Back to your Hotel for some relaxation and gym time- Maybe do a littel muff diving in the pool followed by some light mutual masterbation.

In the evening we have a nice disco in London called The Dome where we can dance till 2.00am in the morning then back to the Hotel for an experimental S&M session.

As you can tell I am already getting a little overexcited to meat you but hopefully we will soon be together.

Your Soul Mate
David

Monday arrived and so did my Liliya (e-mail not on a plane).
Quote:
I will recieve my visa tomorrow, not today!
So tomorrow i will able already fly to you
I am really glad that it will be very very soon, we will spend great time together!!!
Tomorrow morning i will go and recieve my visa, now i am really haven't time, i must
prepare all things for tomorrow dear! so please excuse me for so not log e-mail
kiss you
Liliya
I forgot there was a time line to all this, VISA day is tomorrow, anyone care to guess what happens next.

The Switch
Quote:
My lovely David!!!
Today I had difficult morning. I received the visa today, but at reception
of the visa there were some difficulties. When I have come to embassy
the ambassador asked the many questions. He has asked a question on
that who will the responsibility about me when I will be in the
UK. I informed to him that I can take care of myself itself. The
ambassador informed me that I should have relatives or the
guarantor to fly in the UK. I informed the ambassador that I have no
relatives living on territory the UK. I have told to the ambassador
about our correspondence with you, but he has told to me, that we
should be familiar long time that you could take the responsibility
for me and informed that it will not work. The ambassador has found a
way out of this situation and informed me that the guarantor for me
can be the insurance company which works with embassy.
He has told, that in my situation it is necessary to insure my travel and
then the insurance company will bear the full responsibility for me in
territory the england. It was a unique way to receive the visa and I went
in insurance agency. After I have insured my travel I went in embassy and
the ambassador have given visa to me.
Reception of the visa is really difficult process. It takes
many the efforts and money. I had money for purchase of the ticket of
the plane and additional money for residing at the Europe, but the
insurance document costs 380 pounds. I could receive the visa, but now
there are difficulties in that now I have no enough of money for
purchase of the ticket of the plane. It is a pity to me to inform, but
I cannot arrive to you. Now i need also 340 pounds to buy a ticket on
the plane.
To me tell before that reception of the visa is difficult process, but
I really did not know that it so difficultly. Unfortunately I at all had
no time to ask your advice, but I think that I have made a correct choice.
I have made all necessary to fly in the england and we could be together, but
now I do not know can we be together or not. I want our meeting very much
but to fly to you is required approximately 340 pounds to buy a ticket. I have
got used to cope with difficulties independently, but unfortunately it
will be really difficult to cope with this problem independently. To
fly to you to me is required approximately 340 pounds and I want to ask
your help. I want to meet you and to have bright days together, but
without the help I cannot fly in the england and we can't meet. I would
be happy to fly to you, but I want that you have understood that for
me is necessary help.
We need to do it fast, and i learn that you can send me this through
westernunion or moneygram. If you are able to help me darling we need
to do it today, also to me have give the site www.westernunion.com where
you can send this online
My first name: Liliya
my last name : Shirshova
you need to send this in russia, that i can recieve it fast here in
moscow and buy the ticket today!
kiss you
hope to hear soon
Liliya
I also forgot these type of scams start with a small amount to get you hooked I was expecting £1000.

Nevertheless its worth seeing if I can tempt her/him with some more cash
Quote:
Hello My Darling Liliya,
Sorry to hear of your difficulties and I am sure I can help.

Firstly are you sure 340 pounds is enough I would rather send you 500 pounds just in case any other expenses arose.

I am at the cottage Today preparing for your arrival and can arrange for a Western Union Transfer to be done from London very quickly.

I know how worried you must have been asking me for money but dont worry 500 pounds is such a tiny amount to me as I am a very rich man and love is what I want to find now.

Please me darling just let me know how much money you really need and I will have it sent Today.

All my love
David
xxxxxxxx
It came as quite a shock when I couldn't.
Quote:
David darling, don't send 500, to buy the ticket now and to come to
you today i need 337 pounds it is exact summ which i need to buy the
ticket...
Darling we need to manage it as fast as it will possible for us, i
will wait your letter
yours Liliya
An honest scammer, is this a first ?.
If it wasn't for the fake photos, unconvincing e-mails, unsolicited first contact, and well documented warnings about these VISA scams I could be tempted to believe all this.
Anyway time to send the cash, or at least pretend too, of course a photo request is a must.

Quote:
Hello Liliya Darling,

I will send the money now from our London office which is near Wester Union office and we use them a lot.

I will send you the MTCN number as soon as I have it but there is one thing I need you to do for me while I am waiting.

It is only a small request but to be sure you are the Lady in the pictures I have fallen in love with I need you to take a picture of yourself holding a piece of paper which says:
I LOVE MATRIX WATCH.

As The Matrix is my favourite film this would make me very happy.

I'm sorry to ask this of you my darling but I'm sure you would not want a man who is not carefull.

All my Love
Davidxxx
Will She go for it?.

Please let me know if still problems.
This delay is breaking my heart

Love and fumbles

This is the Metropolitan Police fraud squad number so I hope she calls it, I also hope there is a David who works in the fraud dept.

I think she/he is getting suspicious
Quote:
darling Dave you play with me? i am really tired to go to the banks,
to me have told that this transfer again is not exist...
we can't meet with you
i am crying!
Time to break the bad news and come clean
Quote:
Hello Liliya or whatever your name is.

I have got to the bottom of why the transfers where not succesfull-it seems you are on a scam list at the WU office and my Boss now wants me to explain what is going on.

I have also got to make a statement at my Local police station and a newspaper reporter wants to interview me and will pay me £500 for the interview.

I may still lose my Job over this.

While away at my cottage I missed the memo that was sent round warning everyone about this scam and I feel totally betrayed.
The lady whos photos you used and photoshopped where not you I have proof you where using pictures from a lady called Nikki and her website.

Maybe an honest living could bring you more success.

Ironically the first transfer did go through but I gave you the wrong number it should be a 7 not 9 at the start, If your still that desparate maybe you can rush to WU office to get it.

GoodBye.
My heart is now truly broken.
Normally this should be the end of it but in the background another friend of mine 'Miles' has been having his own conversations with 'Liliya'.

Miles Story.

I'll begin the story shortly after finding the identical introduction Visa scam e-mail from Liliya, the only difference is the e-mail address to reply to.
Could it be the same scammer, a different scammer or all part of the same gang.
Miles has already replied to the invitation for weddid bliss to a complete stranger and we join the story with Liliyas response.

Hello Dear Liliya,
Thank you for your photos and you loook really beautiful.

I have no problem to meet you in a week as I have some Holiday time due.

Life is good in the UK at the moment and I am head of development for Jizzy [A clue where this all may be leading] Soft Drinks here in the UK which is part of the Lyons group.
I live and work in Manchester and I am 33 years old.

It is hard for me to meet ladies as I work a lot so it was so nice to get your e-mail

I still feel nervous writing to you but I have included a photo for you to look at.

Hope to hear from you soon.

It will be more economic for me.
Ok, February, 1 I will receive the visa and can fly to UK.
Well, I wait your answers to my questions and we may plan our meeting.

Also, I can buy the ticket in 2 ends, but for purchase of the ticket I should know date of return flight.
You inform time how many want that I remained together with you?

Ok, write to me more ideas about our meeting. Ask me all questions which you want.
I send some photo of me. I wait with impatience of your fast answer.

For some reason I went into dodgy English mode here, perhaps it will help with translating.

Hello Liliya,
I'm glad you like shoping because there are lots of shops in England you will love.
I like shopping to especially for electronic goods like Xbox 360 and games stuff.

When you come over to England I may be able to arrange a walk round my factory where we make Jizz Juice all my work men would love to show you how its made infact I think some are making to right now as I work late on Tuesday's.

I'm sorry to hear your Mom is so far away If you like you may be able to bring her to England to at some time to stay as I have a large house and could squeeze you both in.

What does your mom think of you coming to England is she OK with it.??
I bet she is real proud of you looking for a better life in the UK.

I have heard of Oriflame maybe you could bring me over some lipstick for my mom as a present when you visit.

I could get you a Job at my Factory as I'm sure the production of Jizz would double with you their-we need a pretty face to look at because all my work friends have been round the block a few times I have entered most of them twice already.

I'll have to go jogging now as I like a run round the park in the dark.
Speak to you soon my Darling

Good Morning Liliya My Sweet,
It is now 12.00 in the UK and I must say I have been having trouble sleeping as well.
You are in my Dreams and everynight for the last 2 days I have woke up wet.
I am at work at the moment but will be taking tomorrow as Holiday for few weeks.

Oh my Princess do you have any more photos of you.

I promise to make all your Dreams cum true just tell me when your flight is leaving and I will be at the Airport to meet you.

This Holiday can't cum soon enough as making fizzy drinks is a bit boring especially Jizz juice which tastes a bit suspicious to me.
Do you hate work as well.

Fly to me soon my Princess.
Love and Kisses

I already have prepared for all for departure.
Today I will go to sleep earlier my dear as tomorrow I should rise very much early and to go to receive my visa!!
I already sit and I do not know that to me to do now. Why that I very strongly worry, I do not know why.
Probably because I very strongly want to be with you and any more I do not present a life without you!
But I will be sure that tomorrow all well and I will be with you.
Now I have gone to have supper and take a shower. I shall write to you again when I will go to sleep.

At Last the Day of departure arrives, but whats this there seems to be a problem!!.
Quote:
Hi dear Miles,

Today I had difficult day. I received the visa today, but at reception
of the visa there were some difficulties. When I have come to embassy
the ambassador asked the many questions. He has asked a question on
that who will bear the responsibility about me when I shall be in the
UK. I informed to him that I can take care of myself itself. He has
told that knowledge of English language it insufficiently to be in
safety. The ambassador informed me that I should have relatives or the
guarantor to fly in the UK. I informed the ambassador that I have no
relatives living on territory the UK. I have told to the ambassador
about our correspondence with you, but he has told to me, that we
should be familiar long time that you could take the responsibility
for me and informed that it will not work. The ambassador has found a
way out of this situation and informed me that the guarantor for me
can be the the insurance company which works with embassy.
He has told, that in my situation it is
necessary to insure my travel and then the insurance company will bear
the full responsibility for me in territory the UK. It was a unique
way to receive the visa and I went in insurance agency. After I have
insured my travel I went in embassy and the ambassador have given visa
to me. Reception of the visa is really difficult process. It takes
many the efforts and money. I had money for purchase of the ticket of
the plane and additional 300 $ for residing at the UK, but the
insurance document costs 720 $. I could receive the visa, but now
there are difficulties in that that now I have no enough of money for
purchase of the ticket of the plane. It is a pity to me to inform, but
I cannot arrive to you. I have money but to buy the ticket of the
plane to me it is necessary still approximately 450 $. To me spoke
that reception of the visa is difficult process, but I really did not
know that it so difficultly. I was before a choice in which it was
difficult to make the decision. Unfortunately I at all had no time to
ask your advice, but I think that I have made a correct choice. I have
made all necessary to fly in the UK and we could be together, but now
I do not know can be we together or not. I want our meeting very much
but to fly to you to me it is required approximately 450 $. I have got
used to cope with difficulties independently, but unfortunately it
will be really difficult to cope with this problem independently. To
fly to you to me it is required approximately 450 $ and I want to ask
your help. I want to meet you and to have bright days together, but
without the help I cannot fly in the UK and we cannot meet. I would
be happy to fly to you, but I want that you have understood that for
me is necessary help. If you can help me, please transfer 450 $
through Western Union. To me informed that Western Union is unique
system of remittances through which possible to send money from the
UK to Moscow. There to me informed that Western Union works practically instantly. It is simple system and if you can help me I can already receive money in some minutes after you will transfer money.
I understand that we know each other some letters to speak about
money, but I hope that you understand my situation. I do not know,
that you think of my letter, but I hope that I have made a correct
choice. This your decision. I hope that my letter will not push away
you and you will not throw me in such situation.

Please write to me as soon as possible,
Love Liliya
Probably time I asked an obvious question
Quote:
Liliya My Darling,
I may be able to help but is there anyone you can borrow the money off and then I will give you the money when you arrive in England.
450 $ is not a lot of money so if you can't borrow it please make sure that is all you will need.

If you cannot borrow the money please send me all the information to do the transfer.

See you soon my Princess.
Miles

Liliya's response, as expected.
Quote:
My dear!!
I of course try to borrow this money but I have no friends in Moscow!!
I can't do this!! Only you my dear can help me!!
In branch Western Union to me informed the full information necessary for
remittance. To send money you should know:


-receiver's full name: Liliya Shirshova

remittance)
I very much want to be with you!!!
Love Liliya
O.K. Predictable picture time.
Quote:
Hello My Darling Liliya,
I don't normally do this but after all our e-mails I feel I trust you so much

I am away from work now on Holiday so I can go into Manchester and send you the Transfer by Western Union.
I will send you $450 immediately- this should take about 1 Hour to do and when I get back I will send you all the information.

I do however need you to do one thing for me.
To prove you are the beautifull Liliya in the photos you send me I need another photo with you holding a piece of paper which says 'I DRINK JIZZ JUICE'

I would also like you to be holding a Banana in the picture.

The reason for this silly photo is when I meet you at Airport I shall be wearing a Hat with a Banana on it so you will recognise me.

If you can do this thing for me I will love you forever my darling.

Lots of Love
Miles
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Remember the Banana from earlier well I thought I would try and spice things up a bit.

Will I get another Piccy I wonder, it had better not be the same one as before.

Lets break the news that I need my Banana
Quote:
Hello Liliya Darling,

Thank you for your photo but there is one thing missing a 'Banana'.
I have attached a photo of a Banana to this e-mail in case the word doesn't translate very well.

I have been to Western Union and will scan the receipt in shortly.

First though my darling I need the picture of you with a Banana (on your head or holding it would be great) this would truly make me believe you are my true love.

Sorry to ask this of you my love but it will help you see me at the airport as I will have a hat on with a Banana on it.

All my Love
Miles

My dear!
You only want that I make pic with banan??
I don't know where I find banana in hotel!
But if this unique way I go to shop and buy it!
I wait your answer.
Love Liliya
I even sent the piccy earlier so she could photoshop it.
This could be interesting if she /he uses their own body with a Banana and photoshops a new head in.

Anyway after a quick confirmation e-mail eventually the prize arrives, I have a feeling photoshop has been involved again.

With all the Banana antics looks like Liliya was To late for the Bank
Quote:
My dear!
I have just returned from bank.
But I to not have time there a little was the big turn[could mean long qeue] and I to not be in time to receive your help my dear today!
I very much was upset all over again but as already tomorrow we will be together that I now the happiest girl in the world!!
Tomorrow in the morning I will go to receive your help again and then
at once I will be to buy the ticket aboard the plane!!
Now I go to eat because I don't eat since morning!!!
Love Liliya
The Bank doesn't seem to want to give out the cash
Quote:
My dear!!
I just go from bank and to me has told that you don't send me money!!
What happend my dear??
it a mistake??
I wait your letter!
Love Liliya
I now decide its time to enlighten Liliya as to the cause of the cash withdraw problem
Quote:
Darling Liliya,
I'm sorry it is no mistake.
The cash was never sent because I have known all along this was a scam and you where some boy trying to scam me with this old dating trick.

Try doing a few google searches on the fake name you use and you will see there are a lot of forums talking about you already.

The photos you use aren't even convincing and are just nextdoornikki pictures you have pinched from the internet.

Maybe you will find a few fools to send you money but I am not one of them in fact you may find that most of the people you talk to by e-mail are just wasting your time and keeping you away from real victims.

If things are so bad in your part of the world that you have to scam people for money- MOVE somewhere else.

It looks like I am not the only one who has wasted your time either- I have attached a local newspaper scan warning of you or your student friends weak scam attempts.

I was going to send you to the bank again later today but I'm bored now.

So take care Liliya my Dear as all the other victims you think you have will be playing the same game with you, in fact some of them might be me.

The End
----------------------------------
Credits
I must be honest and now thank a few people for the inspiration and ideas to complete this little bait, namely:
419eater.com-- and especially Mr Shivers who's ideas I shamelessly adapted.
NextDoorNikii--Just for excisting really
A special thanks to all the Liliyas without whom this would not have been possible.

Quick Disclaimer
Please remember there are a lot of Russian ladies genuinly seeking relationships in other countries and not all are out to scam you, most will not ask for money upfront and will definately not mention marriage and conceiving children on their first contact.

I hope you all had some enjoyment reading this but please remember these antics should not be attempted without carefull research as there maybe more sinister gangs behind these scams.
I doubt anything I did was more than just a temporary nuisance to these people and they will always find new ways to scam people.
As Liliya would say:
