The “expressed interest” in you emails are accompanied by pictures (shudder).

Description on the account is: “Nice girl looking for a nice man!”

Under registration info I see a phone number, and the first/last name of: Stanley Hirsh.

At first I thought this was some new inventive email spam scheme, but now I’m thinking my gmail address got typed accidently into somebody’s profile. Not sure how they would have verified the account tho.


I clicked the option to cancel his/her account since it didn’t seem like it would be doing *that person* much good with it sending all that email to me. In the meanwhile, I’ve set the email address to a new random gmail account email address just in case that’s the game that we’re playing here.

    of my English language. I studied the English language at school, and
    then at university. Probably my English, differs from your colloquial.
    Tell, you can understand what I speak you? If something will be not
    clear for you, do not hesitate to ask about it. I do not want, that
    between us the essential barrier of language was.

    a lot of kilometers divide us, but I hope, that it will not be any
    problem for our dialogue. I want to tell to you, that I done not
    involved with men in Russia and for this purpose there is a reason if
    it is interesting to you, I can tell to you in the following letter. I
    have decided to search for the love outside Russia, I do not know why,
    but I was involved with America. I have addressed to agency of
    acquaintances which to be in our city. I filled in various
    questionnaires, answered some questions, and to me have told, that in
    the first day it will be uneasy to find my competition. To me have
    suggested to come in agency in some days. Yesterday I have come to
    agency of acquaintances and to me have presented some structures of
    men which most approach for me. Also to me informed, that competition
    with some from men reached 95 percent. It is a pity, that on my
    structure it was not possible to place a photo, agency informed, that
    it will be not simple do. I shall send the photo to you today.

    system. My growth 5 ‘ 8 “, my weight of 112 pounds. It will be better
    to you to judge my appearance on my photo. I very much watch behind
    the appearance, I visit employment aerobics and physical culture, it
    allow to support beauty of my body and elegance top-level. It because
    I the girl, and I should be beautiful is very important for me.
    I am really interested in dialogue with you. I never had dialogue with
    the man from other country. I shall be glad to hear about you, about
    your family, your life? Also it is interesting to me, where you work?
    Tell, Eddie district, where do you live has cultural institutions,
    theatres, exhibitions, museums? I love visit cultural institutions of
