Spam of the Day: Greetings from Valley Records, Or Russia, Or Nigeria, Or Wherever

Another Russian bride makes her move. This is entertaining reading, I promise.

FROM: Valley Records
SUBJECT: How are you? My name is Ekaterina.

How are you? My name is Ekaterina. I from Russia, city Cheboksary. To me 28 years. I shall tell to you about myself a little. I corresponded with the man from the your country before. His name Mark. He is from your country. We had a long correspondence and Mark wanted, that I have arrived to him in the your country that I have seen what life there. We have together submitted the statement on reception of the visa in your country! Mark spoke, that will help my in our meeting. I thought, that have met on the Internet the love. I and Mark made the big plans for the future, but in a flash all has changed. From the moment of submission of the statement for the application of the visa has passed 5 months. For these five months there was for what I least waited. Mark informed, that his former wife has returned to him and lives together with him. Soon they should get married. And now in Mark plans there is no me. I wrote to him sometimes after that, but Mark have wished me only good luck in the further searches worthy men and have told, that our ways miss. And in October to me there has come the invitation in embassy behind reception of the visa.In the beginning I wanted to throw out the invitation in embassy.To me it was sad, because my dreams were failed, I have nobody to fly in the your country. But my uncle have dissuaded me from resolute actions and have told, that else there is a chance to find worthy the man and to use the visa to a meeting with him. I well know English and practically I have visa your country. My uncle speaks, that it really solves many problems. Approximately in 7 days the visa will be ready, and I should go to Moscow behind reception of the visa. I write to you because in my heart there is an empty seat. I do not search rich or poor. I search careful and responsible man which wants to enjoy a life together. Is this person you? I think, that I ask not much. I have told to you a little about my life. I have told not all about myself, but it will be easier to me to write about myself if you will ask questions which interest you. I have told to you my history, and now I shall look forward to hearing from you with impatience. Write to me! I shall send you more photo in the following letter. I wait you answer. Ekaterina.

How about it--any of you single boys out there willing to make Ekaterina an honest woman?

Is she currently dishonest?

Do you think the "70 year old" who mails you articles periodically may be interested? You never know!

Guess Who

Interesting intermittent use of poor English and high-level vocabulary like "dissuade," "resolute," and "submission." Fishy.

Ekaterian or Alena? I got almost the same mail from Alena. :)

To barkat: I guess the poor girl just used a web translator? ;) She must have been so stressed out about the situation that she didn't think she could rely on her own English and she even forgot what was her name. Have mercy on her! :D
