And I Thought I Was Doomed to the Purgatory of Solitude
I was feeling all sorry for myself, cut off from friends far away and watching the ones close by drift apart. And then I got this message out of the blue:
Hello friend!!! My name is Yuliya. I for the first time get acquainted
through the Internet. I do not know as to begin my letter to you.
Likely I need to tell a little about itself. My name is Yuliya. I live
in the city of Kazan. I was born there in July, 30, 1981. I have
finished there architecture - building university. Now I work in
building the companies. My work is very pleasant to me. To me to like
to skate. And as I very strongly like to float. I the sociable,
good-natured person. And as I am very romantic. I search for serious
attitudes, and I shall be happy to study you closer. I could not find
love here and I had to address for the help to the Internet. I want to
create real family. To have strong attitudes. I know the English
language more likely well. I think, which problems in us with dialogue
will not be. I hope, that our dialogue will make sense. It would be
fine, if I and you could make Friendship or more than simply
friendship. If you are interested in me that write to me on mine
e-mail: clgirl28@eastlinecorp.org
I shall wait your answer.
Bye!
I've never been to Kazan, but this sounds promising. It's hard to find someone who "strongly likes to float." That sounds very twenty-first century in a William Gibson sort of way. What do you suppose "clgirl" stands for?

If only. . . Time permitting, I'll write an entry about how I learned the meaning of the word "call girl" from a soap opera an the impressionable age of, of, of -- well, it was either eight or nine.

I think it might have something to do with "make Friendship."

Why make new Friendship when you could put your old Friendship in dry dock for a lot less?

Oh, this might be of note considering your recently received missive. I, too, received a note from someone I don't know, a Mr. Howard Penn who claims I can "Take just a candy and become ready for 36 hours of love." Right on, Howard!

clgirl28@eastlinecorp.org

I too have been corresponding with "Yuliya" and being a woman, waiting for the scam, but after four emails, nothing but provocative pictures of a girl/woman who does not really fit the image that she originally portrayed.

Interesting to say the least, but I do not have time to correspond with someone who really does not interact with anything I write back, even though it is quite vague and she asks for nothing but information about my thoughts and how I grew up.

Though the original email was the exact as yours.

I did also ask her how she came upon my email address and chose me to write too...

would love to share other emails from Yuliya if you would like them. I still think it is a scam.

Thanks for reading!

Re: clgirl28@eastlinecorp.org

How strange. Apparently, this isn't the standard sex spam. It's odd to think that this might be a real person. Maybe all those people trying to get money out of Nigeria are real too!

Yuliya!!@!

I have also been recieving emails from a "Yuliya". Everytime I ask how she got my email address, she ignores my question. She talks about love and REALLY wants to marry me. She has sent me about 15 emails so far and 2 of them ask for money (I refused on her both attempts)


(First Email asking for money)
Hello my lovely. I am very glad to receive from you the letter. Lovely
tell to me the address precisely that I could arrive to you. Today I
went to travel agency and I have found out how much is official
registration of papers. Now I will try to inform in detail you, that
it is necessary for me to make to make this travel. The most
important, I should receive the visa to travel to you, also I should
receive international passport for travel to other country. The
information on the visa. So it will be 160$US for the visa and 40 $
for registration. Also I need to pay 90 $ for international passport,
55 $ for medical insurance and 55 $ for interview in embassy and for
some other charges which I can have. I will need about 400$US to cover
all charges. Time of registration of my visa and all necessary
documents about 10 working days. My tickets will cost 690 dollars.
These are very big money for me. My lovely, I do not have these money.
I ask you that you could help me with official registration of papers.
My lovely, can you make it? If there is no that I will try to save
money, but it will be take very long time. Tell me, will you help us
with you to meet in the person?. I will wait from you the answer.
Always only yours Yulia.

(Second Email asking for money)
Hello my honey I am very glad to receive from you the letter. Lovely I
so it is happy, that we soon shall meet you. Lovely I so strongly want
it. Lovely I simply do not know what to make. I likely shall soon
climb upon a wall. Lovely I is simple I can not. I want to you. I so
want to embrace you. Very strongly to kiss. I constantly think of you.
It kills me even more. Lovely I very strongly want to you. I as have
found out as you can give me of money for a way to you. For this
purpose it is necessary for you to address in the western union. That
I could receive your money in branch of the western union I should
know your full and exact name, your full and exact home address, the
exact sum of a remittance, and also ten numbers of a remittance (MTCN)
which to you will give in the western union when you will send for me
this money. That you could send this money you should know my full
name: Tihonova Yuliya. My address: Russia, the city of Kazan, Petrov's
street, the house 4, an apartment 58. I with impatience wait for ours
with you of a meeting. I love you.
(end of emails)

After this one, I decided to take some pen to paper and actually send a 1 page letter to the address she supplied (No money of course). I noticed that someone else has posted almost the exact same email, but with a different home address for Yuliya. I told Yuliya that if she ACTUALLY comes to visit me in the United States, I would give her a crisp new $100 for all of her hardships. I'm going to keep refusing sending her money and see what happens. Hehe this is kinda fun.

Re: Yuliya!!@!

It's like spamming the scammers. I'm really fascinated by how long this story has spun out. Good luck. And keep that $100 in a safe place!

Dear All,
I am from New delhi,India and I got the same mails from Yulia and she has demanded me money from the same manner, she has sent me so many photographs and mails and finally stopped mailing me when i haven't answered her mail in which she demanded some US$650 for tickets. I knew that such hoax girls are there on the net who just cheat us to get some money. I recommened all the Internet user to be aware of this type of matter and girls.
Thanks a lot

This woman Yuliya

I have received many emails from this girl too.
I am a woman and she pretends to like women. She seems to be lesbian in the last email. She has sent me many pictures. I am from Brazil.
I really do not know how she found my email. I asked her many times but she never wrote back saying how she got my email.
I am sick of this woman!!!!
Be aware !!

That's really unusual, I think, that she's targeting both women and men. I'm further captivated by the staying power of her oddness.

Yuliya

Just recently she sent me another email stating that she "shall
serve my prince her breakfast". HAH. I am finding this Yuliya "woman" to be very entertaining. Here is the entire email:

Hello sunshine, Christopher!!!
I write to you this letter, I as in dream. I am overflown with
feelings to you my love. I write to you the letter, and my soul speaks
me, that it is your second half which you so for a long time searched,
is your second half which you so strongly like also he loves you. I am
overflown with feelings of pleasure to you. You simply changed my
life, you became sense of my further life. I without you, without your
attention and caress am simple I can not live in this world. I want to
make that happy the man on the ground. I want, that you were happy
also I promise you, that when we with you shall be together I shall
make everything that you were happy. We shall study each other better,
we learn about each other all.
How is your working day passing by? Are you tired? I'd like to go out
with you tonight, for example, to visit some pub or a small restaurant
to have a chat at dinner. What are your thoughts on this? It would be
great! Is it popular to be outdoors in your country I've heard about
drive-in-theatre. This is the place where families come by cars and
watch movies in the open air. Sound goes like radio one by air. Am I
right? It is so romantic to see a movie on the big screen at night and
feel fresh air with stars in the sky.
I want to share with you my dream. We shall soon do it!!! It is very I
would think, that wakening in the morning and supervision of you near
to me will be remarkable experience. I would not wake you but only to
observe, that you sleep, and surprise, that you dreamed. I just would
lay there and to think as far as the successful person I should be
with you. Then in cool of morning I would slide from, cover and to go
in kitchen. As soon as there I would do you by good breakfast and a
place it on serving tray. The tray would have your coffee and a
sandwich which I would prepare itself for you. I would bring it in a
room of a bed that you have not risen yet. Then I would wake you with
gentle kisses, and whisper " i love you ". I would observe your frank
beautiful eyes open for morning light, and then I shall speak you
loudly, how many the happiness you has brought to me. I would be down
of a pillow behind of you and then am similar to the employee, I shall
serve my prince her breakfast. We would speak, and a bit later I shall
pull you in a hot bath. The bath with bubbles and colors which float
on water, very much is pleasant to me it. I would like to wipe your
body gelem, and then you might clean my hair. You would be endowed and
with noble kisses, I shall come back to make preparation within our
day. I want to do you by king of my heart.

I shall love you in my dreams and I shall wait your letter my dear.
Yuliya

She does not write to me as often as she used to. Now it's about once a week or even longer. Maybe she is getting tired of writing long ass emails. I hope she keeps this up because I find it too god damn funny.

There aren't many women who can treat your "body gelem" as fine as Yuliya, you know what I mean?

::laughing::

You should check out the recent comment from the woman in Brazil with whom Yuliya has also been corresponding. A busy flirt, she is.

forget me. My lovely I cannot dare to travel up to you. At me not
money to it. My lovely I ask that you have helped me with it. Lovely I
very strongly expect for you. Lovely ours with you the meeting is
dream of all my life. Because to me it is very bad without you. I
simply go in mourning without you. Loved the help to us with you to
meet. I ask you. My lovely I ask you that you have written to me as
soon as possible. Lovely I wait from you the letter. Tell as you has
spent without me. I want to know as you there. Tell to me all. All
that with you has taken place. I wait from you the letter.. i'm
missing you

[end of email]

"Because I have charged extra to think that you started to
forget me." Ahh Yuliya, you never cease to amuse me.

"At me not money to it." <----- That should win an award or something.

I really want to mess with her head. Any sugguestions?

From: residentcharlie Date: September 21st, 2006 04:31 pm (UTC) (LINK TO SPECIFIC ENTRY)

I'm breaking up with Yuliya.

Here is my email to her:

I'm going to keep this brief, because I doubt you'll read it.

I've been reading lots of things about you "Yuliya". I've spoken with others who have also been contacted by you. You tell them you love them or put up some sob story so they are fooled into sending you money. How many people have you successifully scammed money from? 1,10, or even 100? Why did you send me pictures and then send someone else completely different pictures? You're a crappy scam artist!!

I find it pitiful that you would stoop to these lowly levels by formulating these fake sob stories, or even pulling at the heartstrings by telling the person you're in love. What if they loved you back then found out it was a scam? It could slip them into depression which is a serious medical problem.

For your information, you never fooled me and I never loved you. I bet you're some fat, ugly, bald guy who lives underground who makes their living by stealing from others. I hope you rot.

Always yours,

Christopher
