Ekaterina Novosibirsk, Russia I am a single business owner. She sent me a message on Match. And even though I had never thought about getting a Russian wife, she was too pretty to ignore. We've exchanged emails for about 2 weeks. She got very serious very quickly, and she also expressed an interest in coming to see me. Luckily I found this site and saw her picture under a different name.
I never sent her any money. Thank you very much! I have been divorced for 4 years and am the father of 2 great kids. I wish to let everyone know about a scammer I have been corresponding with.
She was very smooth and waited about 4 weeks and wrote 10 letter before asking for money to purchase a visa to come and visit me here in the US. I became suspicious after 4 or 5 letter when I asked her about airports near her town and said there were no airports and that it took 3 days of train travel if I wanted to visit her in her town of Surgut.
The last picture she sent me, I noticed a wedding ring on her finger and asked about it. She said it was just ornamental ring. The following day she sent me the letter asking for money and the name and address of the bank where to send it to. Needless to say, I never sent her any.

Now I prefer to make clothes myself. The doctors said that if the father was alive she would live longer. But I think that the doctors simply calmed me. After my mother's death I devoted myself to work. At the present time I work as an accountant. I like my job though I get tired. Lately I was taught how to use Internet. I am not well at it yet but I am trying to learn. I use Internet after the work because my boss doesn't let use the computer in privit purposes.
But you shouldn't worry. I staied after the work when there is nobody and I am writing the letter. I can write you from Monday to Friday because we work on these days. But if you want I can write you from Internet-cafe on weekends. But I will have to pay for the time I use Internet. And I use free Internet at the work.
But if you want I can write you. I usually spend weekends on fresh air at nature. We have got very beautiful places here and we with my girl-friends often go skiing.
Only it's a pity that we haven't got specialy made places for skiing. But we have got large icy grounds, where a lot of people gather to skate. I like skating very much though I can't skate as a figure-skater.
But any way it is very funny. In summer I like hiking with friends. We take tents, a rubber boat and go for several days to nature.
Most of all I like shish kebabs. I don't know if you know what it is, but beleive me that there is nothing taster than meat cooked on coals and impregnated with smoke.

Elena Letter 3 Hi, Peter.
As I promised you last letter I will continue to tell you about myself. I recalled that I didn't tell you Peter about my education. I am correcting my mistake. In year I went to school.
I studied there for 10 years. After succesful finishing school I entered a business college, where I got a profession of accountant. But it is difficult to find a job in our town if you haven't got a higher education. That's why in I entered Surgut State University.
In I graduated and got a status of a specialist with a diploma. Now as you know I am working as an accountant. On the whole I like my job. Only I am not satisfied with my salary. But I don't despond. At present I am looking for the same job but with larger salary. I hope I will be lucky. I didn'ty write you about my private live. I think it is time to tell you Peter about it. I have never been married.
I haven't got children. Half a year ago a had a boy-friendBut we interruted our relations. The reason is alcohol. At the beginning everything was wonderful. But then he began to drink alcohol. If he did it only at holidays I would not be against.
But he drank constantly. I don't know as for your country but in our country the problem of alcogolism is a great problem.

At fist I thought that only I had such problems with a boy-friend But I talked with my girl-friends and they told me that they had the same problems. That's why I want to find a friend not from Russia. I don't want to spend my life with an alcoholic. May be you think that I want an easy life.
No, I don't want an easy life. I am not afraid of worc. All my short life I work hard. Even when I studied at school I tryed to earn money. During holidays I worked at the post-office and carried post. I don't hesitate of work. And now I am thinking that I tell about it a man which I have never seen.
I think that our correspondence is not a joke. For me it is very important. I heard that in Internet there are a lot of decievers.
Please don't play with me and with my feelings. It will be a great stroke for me. You speak about age. For you it matters. You are interested in my opinion on this question. I shall tell you. Age is not the reason. The age can not be a barrier. It is a simple explanation of many people. Well now you also have answered the question. The person loves by heart. Years are not barriers when you love. If you disagree with my ideas, write why. We may talk to you on this theme.
I think I can prove you that age is not a handicap. Well, so I am finishing to write my letter. Ask your quastions and I will answer them with pleasure.
