Today we are continuing our series on our talented scammers, Ekaterina. Ekaterina is notable by the fact that our ‘conversation’ lasted more than a month. We survived the first demand of money, $570 to purchase ‘airplane tickets’, only to have the demand repeated two weeks later. Where these requests were made, I will include some of my conversation to show how I deflected this attempt at fraud. This is the last post on ‘this’ Ekaterina.
Ekaterina appears to be a very young girl, despite the fact that she claims to be 29 years old. I believe that this is a common practice by these types of scammers, to more reliably entice intended victims; it is slimy and very regrettable.

Please send me this money today or tomorrow that I a haze to receive them and to pay to my agent. As soon as you will send to me of money you owe me the full address and a full name as should inform me control number of transfer that I could receive your money. As soon as I will receive your money I will pay to their agent for payment of my contract.
I very much miss on you and I wish to arrive somewhat quicker to you. You for me the unique man on this earth and me more are necessary nobody. I wish to spend all my life only with you and any more with whom. I every minute and every second think of you and I can do nothing with myself. Now I will finish the message and with impatience I will expect your message.
One million kisses. Your love Ekaterina
And the next day my owl flew in with this missive…
Hi my love Cliff!
I was very glad to receive your message. It is pleasant to me to read all that you write to me. I wish to be your wife and more a drawn game. I very much love you and I wish to spend with you all my life. You for me the unique man on this planet and more such as you are not present. I wish to appear in your embraces and to feel your gentle kisses. I wish to be always near to you and to support you in all.
But all problem in money I hate money because money now solves presently
all. I do not want that money was a problem before us and would prevent together I cannot go through it. My mum is very disturbed by it. She wants that I had a beloved which will care of me and will love me. I am ready on all to arrive to you. At me in a head many silly thoughts how to get money to arrive to you I are ready to plunder bank is ready on all if only to be with you. I think that you understand me. I do not know that to me to do I even am ready on that to go to work as the prostitute to earn money and to arrive to you.
This very bad idea but is unique chance that I could earn money but I think that after that you will not love me more but for me a unique way to arrive to you I do not wish it to do and I wish to make love only only to you. If I do not arrive to you as soon as possible that I do not know that I with myself will make I cannot live without you.
This damned money all business in any papers which anything in comparison with love. I am ready to work at once on several works and not to sleep if only at me there was this money but I do not know such way except prostitution to earn this money so quickly but besides me other men will touch and you will not forgive me it but I any more do not see other exit. I could take the loan in bank but to me will not give because I earn very little. I do not know that to me do I cannot to constrain some the tears of grief and feeling that I cannot make anything with it… Now I will finish the message because I cannot write any more and to me it is very bad.
Your love for ever Ekaterina
The next day…
I love you with every fiber of my being. If I could do anything to get the money to you in the next week, I would do so. My only alternative is to steal the money from a bank or other place of money. I cannot do that.
There is a difference between I cannot send the money (because I don’t have it) and I will not send the money (assuming that I can get it but, for many reason refuse to do so). My situation is that I DO NOT HAVE IT AND CANNOT SEND WHAT I DON’T HAVE! Your agent can put all the deadlines that he wants to impose, but if it is not available – I say GET ANOTHER AGENT! Who is this agent anyhow? Perhaps if I talk to him I can appeal to his better nature.
Greetings my love, my future sweet husband Cliff!!!
I read your letter and I am very glad, that you have written to me.
How your health? How you have lead day? You thought about me?

My sweet, we should try to reunite the friend with The friend that it would do not cost to us. For the sake of you I shall bypass all terrestrial Sphere on foot. I want to go to you and to know, that with everyone past In meter, I all is closer and closer to you. You want it? If yes, That I today shall go to a way.

My prince, I you see already wrote to you, that at my sister in Moscow am The girlfriend. She is ready to help us. She will try to make all quickly And it is good. My husband, I wants to arrive to you and to kiss you all life.
Let’s start movement each other, because under a laying stone Water does not flow. We should aspire to each other and then the god Will help us. I know, that he on our party and I pray for it.
If I had opportunity and means I not would began to ask At you the help, and all would make and has arrived to you, my fruit.
But you know, that I earn very little though I work very much Much very much I try. Why in Russia a standard of living so low? I Executed these people which think out different laws at us. People

My loved if you have opportunity to approach our hearts And on always to connect them enable me to arrive to you and I shall thank You the life love and a fidelity to you.

Let’s not wait for a miracle, and we shall create this miracle. And this miracle Will consist in our happy and long life with you!!!!!!!!
My agent has told, that he will not wait neither this nor other month.
As there has passed a lot of time. The agency can wait week. After that will not work any more with me, and it means, that I cannot be with you. I to all girlfriends have told, that soon I will with you and to sunbathe on a beach, to bathe with you in the sea, to have a rest on the nature. It is all all means what not to be to us together because of money. If you can send next week I will arrive to you. If is not present, my heart means will be broken and I can not be with you.
Your damn agent can wait as long as it is necessary! Where does this agent get the power to tell HIS CUSTOMER when the customer will travel, and when his customer pays? It is none of his damned business ‘when’; It is only his business about the ‘how’. Tell this damned primadonna to quit treating us like we OWE HIM a favor. He is our AGENT. HE WORKS FOR US! He gets profit from our ticket purchase – nothing more. HE HAS NO POWER OVER US ABOUT THE WHEN! Damned asshole! What the heck; does he live in Russia or something? In the modern world, HE serves US!
My mister, I hope, that all have clearly written. It is very a pity to me, that my time comes to an end. I shall write to you later, my future husband.
I give you the most gentle kisses and!!!!!!!!!
Your loving Ekaterina on always.
As you have clearly written, I too have written clearly. We will pay when we can. He will arrange the tickets when we tell him to do so. Until then he can stick his god dammed deadline up his ass!
I love you my darling Ekaterina. Please give this message directly to that poor excuse of an agent directly. I am not a pushover. I know our proper roles in this transaction.
I will see you soon my Love!
I love you,
And on the last day…
My beautiful love,
I’m sorry that you don’t understand my situation. It is not that I don’t WANT to send you the money this week; it is that I CANNOT send you the money this week – I don’t have it and can’t get it. I know that you are unhappy – so am I
And in the final chapter…
Hello my lovely Cliff!!!!
To me was a little sad to read your last letter. Yes, I understand your fears, that you can deceive. Means you have no full trust to me.
It is insulting for me because I trust you. Though we did not meet in the person never. But I have no opportunity to find such money.
All my friends and familiar have no such money. I went to bank and tried to take the credit, but to me have given up in the credit because my wages are small very much and according to the manager of bank I have no guarantees to
pay then my credit. It has upset me very much. Now all your and my dreams will be destroyed only because I have no money.
Think, if I had money I would not ask you about the help. Yes, now it is difficult to receive the visa in the USA. But having cash it is possible to receive the visa without special problems and to buy tickets.
You really worry about our joint future. But now we have only 2 variants. The first – we when we can not meet and it is bad, because my heart again will be
broken!!! I did not tell to you when, but I loved once one man strongly very
much, but he deceived me and met other women. he liked to drink vodka. And in a result he has thrown me! My heart has been broken. I could not reconcile to it during 1 year, it was hurt me on soul and bad. But now I have understood, that I was possible has again found my love, but money solve all! I hate money
because now everyone solve only money. And if the person has money he can make everything and if the person has no money he cannot make that. But for me money not the main thing. But without money I cannot arrive to you and except for you to me not to whom to help with money. I promise you when I shall come to you I be employed and I shall gradually give you money.
But all right. If not will trust me, all right. I leave the option to you! I want that you listened only to the heart!!! Variant of the second. If you decide to send money I shall come to you! And it is possible we shall be happy up to the end of our lives. I shall not speak more about money. I want that you have decided that you to do. But please make a correct choice. But if you decide to not send money I shall understand you it is your choice and a choice of each any person is solved correct.
For ever yours and only your loving and gentle
My heart aches to tell you this. My heart too, with the large hole left in from the death of my wife hoped that you would fill that space. Unfortunately, unless we wait until I can earn the money or you get a new agent, we cannot be. For that I am very, very, sorry.
It is what it is my Love,
