Hello, My Name is Kate; Can I be your Girlfriend? Part 3


Today is the third (and last on Kate) part of our view of a charming scammer called Ekaterina.  To keep things straight, I will refer to her as Kate.  This is a part of our investigative reports that will expose the tiniest part of a horrible scam that is perpetrated daily on men and women, in this and other countries.  This will be a series of blog posts, which could very well form the backbone of my fourth book.  Please read the copyright notice at the end of this post.

Please remember, I am leaving any misspellings and grammar errors in, to provide an accurate picture of what your might see in your email.

One fine day it starts…

Our Dear Kate

Hello my dearest prince!

How are you? How is your mood?

Today I had a difficult day, but I had time to walk around Moscow and buy a gift for you.

Why was your day difficult?  What happened; can I do something to help my Princess?

I have prepared the documents and all necessary medical certificates and papers and gave them to the travel agency.

I had a long consultation with them and I was told me that I should have no any problems with getting a visa. My visa is valid for 90 days.

And it’s faster than I thought. Registration of my visa will be fast. Soon I will buy a ticket to you.   Also tell me how long can I stay with you there?

Tomorrow I’ll go back to the agency and find out when I should buy a ticket. I was told that I should buy my ticket tomorrow or after tomorrow.

Moscow is very big and expensive city. There are thousands of Bentley, Bugati and other expensive brands. There is a lot of skyscrapers and old buildings from the time of the Russian Empire. It looks very nice.

Our meeting will be very soon and I am so excited. But I am sure that everything will be perfect. I’ve never been abroad before and this is my first trip. I had never even flown on an airplane.

And I’m a little scared because of many airline crash. How many times did you fly on an airplane?

Okay, my friend is calling me now. She wants to show me some sights of Moscow.

My dear I ask that you to not forget to give me your telephone number, I very much to want to speak with you on the phone.

So I should go now and say goodbye to you my prince.

I’ll write you tomorrow when I go to the agency and get more detailed information about my visa.

I am looking for your letter.

I miss you a lot!

Kisses and hugs,

 

The next day…

Hello my dear Cliff!!!!

Our Dear Kate Gets Personal

I’m so happy that before our meeting there was one step.

Tomorrow in the morning I shall go in the airport to buy the tickets.

Also I shall call to you tomorrow in morning.

I am so exited before our meeting, it is my first trip and I am afraid a little…

How are you feel about our meeting?

What do you want to do in the first day of our meeting?

Today my friend told me that we can chat online through Yahoo Messenger.

I shall not be capable to be online today.

Tell me your yahoo ID??

But tomorrow in 5:00-6:00PM +3GMT Moscow time I shall be online and we is detailed can discuss details of my arrival.

I shall call to you tomorrow in 9 am my time.

Today I have made my new picture I hope you will like it.

OK, hope see your letter later.

Your and only your Ekaterina.

 

Next Day…

Hello my dearest Clifford!!!!

And Turns UP the Heat

How are you??? I want you to read this letter attentively.

I hope you understand that I my English is not very good but you will understand what I whant to say you.

I have not got any good news.  Today I went to the airport and bought the air ticket for April 18.

After that I went to the agency to say that everything is readyf or my trip and I can arrive to you.

In travel agency I was told that I should go to the embassy. I had to go to the embassy and had a conversation with the consul. But I was shocked when he said that I shall not receive the visa!!!

He explained me that the main requirement in reception of the visa it to convince your authorities that I have no any intention immigration in your country. ( that i do not want to stay in your country forever while my visa is a tour visa).

The consul said that I could receive the visa I should buy the air tickets in both ends.

I tried to explain that I do not want to stay in your country forever.

Because that my mum here and I shall come back necessarily.

But he said that it’s obligatory requirement and I shall receive the visa only when I shall show the air tickets in both ends.

Dear I haven’t enough money for the return ticket!!!

I mean I need to buy the round way tiket. I asked my friend But she can’t give it to me, unfortunately.
She can help me only with 50 dollars. But it is not enough.

I need for 600 $ US to arrive to you. I don’t know where i can find money!!! I do not know what to do.
I am awfully upset that I have not enough money to arrive to you.

Have you got any idea? Dear are you able to help me. I hope that we will do something.

Dear, I will wait your letter. I hope that we can meet!!!  I KISS and MISS YOU!!!

 

Next day…

My Beautiful Ekaterina. 

When we started corresponding I had no idea that you would be coming to the United States so quickly! If you recall, I asked very early on what you needed from me to make our dreams a reality.  I did this because I have just ordered a large print run on my latest book and do not have the $600 (right now) that we need for your return plane ticket.  It breaks my heart to tell you this but I prefer to be honest in all things.  I am very sorry; this not a permanent condition but I will not have that much money to send for at least another month, maybe longer

I am so sorry that I cannot send you this money today!  I have though and thought how I might find this money quickly, and do not have an answer for you!

I Love you too my beautiful Princess!  I want nothing else but embrace you in my arms and to NEVER let go.  I think that you would like that.  It means we have to shower together.  That is not a problem for me; how about you???  J

Have you got any idea? Dear are you able to help me. I hope that we will do something.

My Love, it is not helping you; it is helping US!  I cherish you as well but have no miracle that I can perform; would that it is not so!!

Dear, I will wait your letter. I hope that we can meet!!!  I KISS and MISS YOU!!!

Your and only your Ekaterina.

My beautiful Princess.  Love was not built in a day and it has only been less than three weeks since we began to write to one another; we must give this time if we are to build the kind of lasting love and relationship that both you and I want.  Please be patient my darling.

All my Love

Cliff

And last, surprise, surprise!

My dear Ekaterina,

 So that’s it then?  No money when you demand it; no letter from you?  If that is the case, you have hurt me deeply!

 I hope that is not all that this was?

And, of course, we will never hear from the lovely Kate again…  For her, on to the next ‘Mark’…  For me, more unmasking of these lovely scammers in the interest of keeping those of my generation, tightly connected with their bank accounts, and their emotions walking down the sunny side of the street.

If it seems too good to be true, it is.

  1. Hey there, this is SO FUNNY, because I am getting scammed by the same exact girl, with the same exact emails. I am going to have fun with this silly little honey. I am going to play along, and play along and waster her evil little time. And when she begs me for money, I have bookmarked this page and I am going to send that russian ho the link and act like I am all upset. Happy days!

  2. I am getting almost identical emails as you and Bill. Change my name if you publish this to your webpage. Do you want to have a copy of my emails? Some of the photos are the same as you published. My reaction may be same as Bill’s.

    Thanks,
    R.Y.

  3. You have actually targeted me in this scam, or someone has taken the fake texts you have provided and has tried to scam me. I have only found this out through researching the name Sergey Tarmashev to see if there was any english translations to this author. I would have been targeted again by someone if I wasn’t so curious about the interests of this fictitious woman. So now what?

  4. I have a feeling she’ll get over it!

    I have just received the same first 4 letters verbatim from a girl calling herself Tatanya or Tanya for short. The scam continues as at least 4 different sets of pictures have gone out with these letters per my own investigation. I am glad to see you have posted about this scam. All a guy can do is be attentive and alert.
