"I live in a city under name Kirov"

Unlike some other dating scam emails promoting very young women, this particular one claims to be from a 37-year-old economist, which I guess might say something about their target audience. In reality, "Mariya" is probably a fat sweaty male Russian who is trying to scam you out of some money.

Then they have offered me acquaintance to the man from other country, on what I have looked from a positive side.

I too have received mail from someone who could be the same person. I have several messages. All the information they give is entirely consistent with the information she gives in the one message quoted by Conrad. I have a number of pictures. One is identical to the one posted. They have given me no reason to disbelieve what they have told me. There are two things I find slightly puzzling; how did they come by my email address ? They said, as many messages from people claiming to be Russian women do, that they got it from a dating website, but all the websites I know keep your personal email secret. Second, as with many such persons, at some point they declare their love for you, and say how they cannot live without you, etc, after only a few emails (but >10). These two things are weak evidence to accuse someone of scamming.

I am curious how it all ended.

A Kirov woman is emailing me and can be non trustworthy. I have asked her phone number but she says sha cannot afford a phone (very expensive in russia). Is this true? any idea or sugestions?

Usually they will keep asking for funds or expensive items that they need for airline tickets, visas etc etc. The basic plan is to milk as much money as they can out of as many people as possible.
