Andrey Steletskiy Futures Agency
(Donetsk, Ukraine)

I have previously reported this scam as Century 21 Translation firm, well they have a new name but same old scam. Now they are Futures same address in Lugansk Ukraine. The scam works as follows. You receive a letter on a dating site from a woman who looks like a model (because it is a model’s photo). The woman looks to good to be true and after about 3 letters you receive a letter from Futures a translation company working for this woman. They have a whole package of services to sell you and want the money transfered via Western Union or using the bank information contained in these letters.

I have some of the various photos they use of models they find on the Net.

Here are samples of the letters:

Letter 1

My heart nearly sipped a beat when I found your e-mail! I am very happy to hear from you again. David, naked photos??? I am a bit shy, but I promise to send after you do it first:-)
We have taken the first step in getting to know each other as close friends. I want to share everything with you.

I don’t get very disappointed or saddened by a lot of things, so it will be mostly happy moments I will share. That’s a good thing, right? This is where
you smile now! You are a very beautiful man dear! I can imagine looking into those beautiful eyes and telling you one day in person.

I want to share with you one more thing. You see, I do not know foreign languages at all. I know it sounds strange. Why then am I looking for a man abroad? But I think that I should try all ways to find my second half. That’s why I addressed for the help to the translational firm. They help me to translate and send you my letters.

At first I was skeptical about it, as it is difficult for me to trust my thoughts to the third person. But I met my friend the other day, and she told me that she used the services of the same translational firm and now she is married with a foreigner and came to visit her relatives here. You see, her eyes shied with happiness, and I decided to try my fate too. Do I deserve for the happiness too?
Welcome to my life. It would be wonderful if we’re born to to tell these words to each other. We have a chance to find out if we’re able to complete each other’s lives. I do believe our correspondence will help us with the matter.

I’ll appreciate if you’re so kind to tell me about yourself, spending your time, your life goals, ambitions. It would be nice of you to make it clear what kind of woman you’re searching for.

I will wait for your reply, Tanya.

Letter 2

You know I have noticed one strange thing I really miss your letters.
I am a kind of pragmatic person and if someone told me few days ago that I will miss a person I have never seen I would just laugh into his or her face… But now I really miss you and think of you a lot all my day long. David, I liked your personal photo:-) i am impressed! Hope you won’t be disappointed too:-)
I want to take walks with you and hold your hand. I want to attend movies together and enjoy concerts and festivals. Honey, I want to do everything with you.
If you could only imagine how I miss you and dream to see you!!! I would like to stay with you each second of your life!! Did you know that probably when I am with you I’ll spoil you:))) How? Well, early in the morning you’ll get a cup of hot tea or coffee just into the bed!! I’ll surround you with my attention and care!!! I’ll try to foresee all your wishes and dreams:)
Oh, but these are only dreams… I hate the distance that separates me from you, all the boundaries that make our meeting to be a sort of difficult thing. But if your feelings are at least half strong as mine I am sure that we will overcome all the difficulties, I am sure!
I still do want to know more about you. What was your last dream you have seen in the night? What was the last book you have read? If you were an animal who would you be?
Perhaps my questions are a bit unusual but I do not like doing usual things at all as it makes our life colorless. Besides that while answering unusual questions one thinks a lot and sometimes even founds out something new in himself:)
I do hope that you enjoy communicating with me and look forward to receiving more beautiful and interesting letters from you and some pictures. With warm feelings.

Tanya.
