Dating scammer Russian Dating/Bride Scam: Litvana, Liteva, Lina from Moscow

Name: Russian Dating/Bride Scam: Litvana, Liteva, Lina from Moscow

Email: unknown


Other Comments:
This scammer contacted a friend of mine. I determined that she (or someone using her picture) is a scammer, because the E-mails my friend received were word-for-word exactly the same as many E-mails appearing on this and many other scammer sites. She goes by the names Litvana, Liteva, and Lina, but always signs her letters 'Lina.' In the E-mails, she claims to be from Moscow.

Example letters:

1. Hi my lovely Andy! I am very glad to news from you. Andy, yesterday I
could not send you the letter because I had no opportunity to access
to Internet. We haven't phone in our apartment is and consequently my
computer has no input in a network. Usually i write down the message
to you on a diskette, and then I go with it to the girl familiar to
me, she live almost near me, Her computer have input to the Internet
and I send to you my letters from there. But yesterday she was absent
at home. I hope, what you Andy did not lose me. I missed without yours
e-mail. Please give me your phone number and I shall call to you.
Today on work I thought of you and, it was pleasant for me to know,
that there is a person, which thinks of me too, reads my ideas and
writes something for me. And how you Andy did you miss me these days?
Today i with friends plan to have some entertainment. It will be
possible some club or a disco, or some concert. It is a pity, that you
is far now. I think, we could spend perfectly together evening. I
hope, we'll do it in the future and we'll can well have fun. I am
sure, that it will be good time for us Andy! We shall drink easy wine,
then to dance, while our legs can maintain it. And after that we
probably shall reach somewhere else....., and where we'll make some
things. Ideas about it me beforehand raise. My imagination very much
advanced and I can represent many details of ours appointment. I think
it is time to me to finish this letter, otherwise I shall write a lot
of superfluous and I shall have then confusion before you. I wait
yours e-mail, my lovely. Hugs and kisses!!! Yours Lina.

2. Hi my dear Andy! I am glad again to speak with you! Thanks that has
given your phone number. I shall call to you in week-end from a public
telephone booth. By the way, yesterday I had quite good evening with
my friends. We went to club and there there some hours. First we had
the good supper and a little of champagne, then played bowling and a
little danced. Impressions have remained good, only when I saw , as
some my girlfriends danced and kissed their men - I had small envy to
them. I thought of you and represented that you near me. That you too
embrace me and whisper to me on an ear gentle words. And you Andy,
when see around the in love pairs people, - do you recollect me? How
often you with the friends reach in any bar or club? When you are in
these places do the girls often try to get acquainted with you? To me
very much frequently men approach and try to begin acquaintance, but I
at once give to them to understand, that with me these things to fail.
Andy i think often about your letters and i understand, that you is
serious to me. I too do not look at our dialogue as on an fun, and I
write you some very personal words and things, as to the close person.
And I want to tell to you Andy, that I am glad, i have such man - as
you!I wait for your messages and I think of you. My gentle Kisses!
Yours Lina.

3. Hi my lovely Andy! I hope you have good day! i wish it to you. I send
you another my picture, probably to those pictures which you already
saw, you got used. I hope, that this picture will give again to you
good emotions. At me all still but my mom is sick a little....Today I
cook food. By the way, dear, what you usually prefers more in food?
What you prefe : sweets, meat, a fish? Inform me it Andy. My parents
and friends very much like a meal which I prepare on kitchen. Who
knows, can once you will try my meal :^) I love many dishes and to
select something concrete at once difficultly (but it is possible).
Since the childhood I love mother's cutlets with a mashed potatoes,
the stuffed pepper. I love salads such as ' Winter salad ' is very
popular salad in Russia, there are always on any celebrating. Also I
very much love salad 'Relish': tomatoes and cucumbers it is finely -
finely equal to cut. The onions, are better dark blue, too. In very
deep salad dish to spread all over again cucumbers a layer, then
tomatoes, then an onions. Then a brynza to cut fine squares and from
above. To submit separately sauce 'Elefaim' is a mayonnaise mixed with
orange juice and something else. Salad can be salted a little from
above, but it is unessential. I very much love salads with fresh
vegetables, I love a chicken - grill and a potato fried, muesli and
every possible nuts, yoghurt a pie and chocolate, ice-cream, bananas
and ... Meat - fried, baked, as shashlick (barbecue) and as different
meat delicacies, chops. I love a fish red, white, everyone. In any
kind, but not crude. The society of protection of animals would chain
me to a pillory. (the Joke! I love a pizza, all from the puff test
very much I love - both sweet, and unsweet. Still I love a
water-melon, any apples sweet or sour-sweet apples, a strawberry, and
others fruit. And still I adore sweets every possible. But, I always
control myself because from sweet it is possible to collect excess
weight. I love natural juices, and Coca-cola, Pepsi. In general I like
to try new dishes, for example national dishes. Only do not think,
that I the glutton, simply very much was lost in day-dreams (a joke!),
I always hold myself in norm and I do not allow to prevail to the food
instincts over me. Mmmm... well i think i must to stop, now I shall
give an opportunity to you By the way, we in russia have proverb: '
the way to heart of the man - passes through his stomach! ' I was many
times convinced of it when observed of my father. My sweet kisses!
Yours Lina.
