Dear Scott, I do not know as now to you to write! In your letters heat, care, an assurance, tenderness, romanticism earlier was felt. I was full these feelings. And now all of them are stronger and stronger., the moment of our meeting has almost come also us divided all some hours of flight, but the customs house of me has not passed. I was so is afflicted and upset, I did not know, how to you it to explain, I thought, that you will not understand Russian laws, I and itself have been surprised!

I was very glad to know that you to understand Russian laws and to help me with it!

My overall objective to meet and be near to you, to get happy family, our children and to live happily. Sense of all my life.

Now I sit and I write this letter. I do not know, how to you it to tell, that will be with you after his perusal. It can be final you will cease to me to trust, but I speak you the naked truth. My heart to beat for fear that there can be you at all will answer this letter. But I always loved you and I shall like!!! Also I shall hope also, that you will understand me and we shall meet, passing all difficulties of our long-awaited meeting!

I have arrived to the Internet of cafe have read your letter after that I have gone to bank, have received money.

But all over again I have gone to show money at customs house. I have made everything, have shown them of money, and wanted to go to write to you the letter. My ideas have been filled only with you, dreams of the future meeting as I shall see you, my feelings thus as you will lead yourself! I flied in clouds. And when has gone to a toilet to correct the make-up, for me the guy of years 25 and threatening with a knife of visors my handbag has gone. I so have strongly got a fright, what even have lost gift of speech. I should shout to not start to resist. At me the shock was! Then it has escaped and has disappeared.

After that on wadded legs I have gone to item of militia and informed them all that happened, signs of this person and has told, that was in a handbag. Militiamen have made an identikit of this person. Later some minutes have found my handbag in a garbage tank of the airport. In it there was only my passport, the visa and cosmetics. Then I have gone to the Internet of cafe to write to you the letter.

Loved Scott, it took away all money. The only thing, that consoles me, my passport, the visa and that with me everything is all right, though I till now in a shock after happened have found. To me the first time in a life threatened with a knife!

Dear Scott, I understand, that you are upset, but to me it is much worse. I could not arrive to you. This gangster has stolen your money, which you have sent me to pass customs house. Now on customs house at me money is not present. Week during which I should choose a next flight and shows money at customs house will soon expire. I cannot find to myself a place. Can was better that it has cut me and I have got in hospital that you were confident, that I do not deceive you. Why that seems to me, that you will not believe me. But the main thing, that I love you, my sweet and gentle Scott!!!

You can accuse me of everything, it I shall not be against because I am guilty to you, but I do not accuse me, of that that, I do not want to arrive to you and I do not love you because it not so, I really to be here in Moscow, in a condition of a shock. I shall write to you more later the letter because I should descend now in militia and to go in the airport, to change the tickets. I love you trust me.

What can you do to avoid being scammed on dating websites

Scammers are present everywhere on the dating websites. Even if you use established dating websites, like Match.com, eHarmony, etc., and even the women say they live in your own country, you may be scammed.

Before you invest your emotions into a long distance relationship, compare what they say against common sense.  Someone who claims to be in love without, sight unseen, never having met you in person, is mostly a scammer or simply unbalanced.

Apply the same common sense rules of safe dating online as you would in person.
