My name is Nataliya and I am writing you this letter from Russia.
I would be very happy if you could reply my letter.
It's really brief!

I received this e-mail today from a potential new friend, possibly gf. She was so considerate as to enclose a very nice photo of herself. I though: "Finally! The love of my life has finally turned up. Now I can get married, have kids, and enjoy the good life". Haha, yeah right. I'm sure some sad people (guys) are gonna fall for this but obviously it REEKS of scam a mile away. In the words of Mike Muir (of Suicidal Tendencies) from some old interview on Danish television: "I may be ugly but I ain't stoopid".
I did a Google and 31 pages of posts came up; posts from people who had received similar nice & friendly e-mails from "Nataliya". Of course it may not even be the chick in the photos (there were tons of other photos of her on that site for scam e-mails) but some ex-boyfriend who's using old photos. How do these people even get your address?? Anyway, after a couple of emails she would tell the whoever gullible sap she was writing to that she hates living in Russia and if he could lend her 700 dollars for a ticket out. Sad and terrible. And hilarious, haha.
