Romance scam letter(s) from Raymond Preston to Katarina (Slovakia)
Letter 1

Dear Katarina, How are you doing and I hope that you are fine and good. I got your contact email on Let me start by introducing myself to you. My name is Jacob Preston, I am 57 years old with my birthday being on the 18th of February, 1957. I am from Baltimore, Maryland. U.S.A. I am an architect and army contractor attached to the USACE (United States Army Corps of Engineers) for the sole purpose of designing, construction management. maintaining environmental regulation and ecosystem restoration in some parts of Afghanistan . As you very well know, Afghanistan is gradually undergoing a rebuilding process and there‘s quite the need for professionals in almost every sector of their society. With no doubt, work has been risky and challenging as we sometimes collide head on with armed insurgents and loose some soldiers during confrontation. I've been here in Afghanistan for the past 14 months and I will be coming out of here in 7 weeks time. I am currently widowed with a 9 years old daughter and I have been widowed for 5 years now after losing my wife to cancer.

My daughter stays with my only sister who's married and stays in Sri Lanka with her family..

I am a good Christian. My lady maybe a Christian or not I don’t care as I am open minded to the other religions and I don’t mind your age cos what matters in life is true love and feelings for one another.

I have spent the past 20years working so hard to be where I am today and I am very happy for what I have achieved today as a result of hard working. I am comfortable as a man but something is missing in my life and that is someone to come home to, a companion, confidant, my soul mate and best friend...someone to call mine, a loving and caring woman to call my wife, as the time is right to start a new life.

What else to say?

I feel that you are very honest. I like you. Something inside me, (I call it „intuition – old Greeks called it „Demiurges" - God inside you - tells me that probably you are the One I am looking for.

I prefer dogs to cats though I’ve got no pets. I like non-.fiction literature (mostly philosophy, management, self-improvement and fly-fishing of course J) and have in my library about 3000 titles. Reading is really passion for me. It does not look like that but I am very sensitive and romantic person.

To me, jogging is the closest feeling from flying. "Only, if I had wings."

I love to travel and to know new places, new cultures and new people; maybe, we could travel together sometimes to few Caribbean Islands for leisure vacations and also visit some lovely places that comes to our minds If there is anything that you wish to know about me, please do not hesitate to ask me. (Promise I will try to write you every day). My dream is to find the right lady I can stay with for the rest of my life... I do respect family values and to re create my own home again is the most important thing for me now.

Sending you some pics of me.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Hello Dear Katarina, Thank you so very much for taking your time to write me; I really enjoyed reading from you and I like your pictures that you attached with the mail. I am very impressed that you are open to me and that is what I want as I am open person and don't like to hide anything, it is always good to start a relationship on a plain platform and with trust, I believe that for every man there is a woman for him and him for her. My main aim to join the site is to find a hardworking, honest, loving and caring woman with a good heart. Some one that we can both understand each other. I just hope and pray that you are that woman for me, and hope that this endless search is going to end with you. The main reason why I agreed to chose the medium to find the love of my life is that I am always busy with work in the field after losing my wife to Lung cancer 5 years ago, which have brought me to Afghanistan, but if I have someone to come home to then I will always be around her every day, to love and care for her every day and to treat her with much respect like a queen as I do for my princess Diana. ( my daughter and only child ). It is peaceful here today in Afghanistan, though yesterday, there was some confrontation and some gun shots, but we are now in the Military camp and it is very peaceful except some times at night when everyone has to be at alert against the insurgents. I know you are a virtuous woman and will join me in building up an empire as I want to retire and manage my own establishment too alongside my life partner as we hope to build a happy future together. I have to stop here and hope I have not bore you so much with my writing, I am just saying my mind. I would love to get to know you more and more and to be best friends, companions, confidants and soul mates. Hope to read from you soonest. Jacob

Hi Dear Katarina, How are you doing today and I hope you are having a nice week there with you; mine so far have been busy and glad that it is yet another day and I am here again writing you another new email. The weather is cool here this morning as it rained lightly last night and every where wet; so I have quite a little to do with the constructing unit, while the other military unit will be busy guarding as to making sure that the Insurgent do not disturb our work nor carrying out their act of terrorism. Though Afghanistan is quite a difficult place to stay at, there is need for my services to the good community of people here and there is no better way of giving back to the society than through offering your services amidst for the good of the people and kids to still have faith in humanity. When I get to leave here, I am looking at returning to Baltimore but will have Diana join me during here school break as i do not want disrupt her education at any point to have her get the best as there is to any kid. There are a few questions that I would like to ask you also and I'd wish you will answer me in your next mail. - What do you think about me ?
- Which quirks would bother you most about your partner ?
- How important is it to you that your partner be accepted by your family and friends ?
- What do you look for in your man ?
- Financially, how would you characterize yourself ?
- Do you consider yourself a dominant person in your personal life ?
- Besides love, what one trait have you noticed in couples that have maintained a successful relationship for many years ?
- How important is it to you that your partner fulfill traditional gender roles ?
- They say life is about simple pleasures, what is your simplest pleasure, and how does it make you feel ? I will stop here for now. Wishing you a wonderful and lovely day. All my heart and waiting patiently for you answers to my questions. Jacob

My Dearest Katarina, I must say that I am so astonished after reading your mail, I knew that there was some thing about you and that with you my future is bright... Thank you for letting me know your insight on what you want, I am pleased. Let me take this time to tend to your questions and also to let you know my answers to the same questions that I asked you too. YOUR QUESTIONS; What would you like to be doing five or ten years from now? Five or ten years now, I am looking at been at rest during my retirement which should start as my contract here ends and spending quality time with my family as I will not go anywhere without them which of course does not include a visit to the middle east of any area of crisis · What's the worst job you've ever had? Worst Job ever has got to be the job I picked up during my entry level as an architect at a firm but never worked for a day after reading through their terms and walked away as it was so tedious for as at then and without a good pay. · What did you enjoy (or hate) about school? School had always been great during my times there and just as it is on earth, nothing perfect exist... Difficult times did arise from time to time but the best memories where still then as I matured. · What do you believe the role of a wife is? #1: Be a helper to your husband.
#2: Respect your husband.
#3: Love your husband.
#4: "Submit" to the leadership of your husband.( Loving, forgiving, and submitting do not mean that you become a doormat or indefinitely tolerate significantly destructive behavior.) · What do you believe the role of a husband is? #1: Be a leader.
#2: Love your wife unconditionally.
#3: Serve your wife. · How important is spending time alone to you? Well, a simple walk does the magic for me and so, I really do not spend it like a loner as you can join in my walk or jog... · What would be the perfect weekday evening to you? A sit in a garden with significant other gazing at the moon · Where do you want to live? Someplace quiet · Do you like to travel or would you rather stay home? I rather stay at home or take my family with me when I travel if it be convenient for us all at the time; otherwise, I don't wanna go anywhere · What to do you want to do during retirement? Just as I mentioned to you earlier, I am looking at staring up a family business for which I am yet to decide what to do; maybe supporting your dream will do the trick. · What was your favorite childhood pet – tell me something about it. My Dog Jaguar, he was an all timer... Often tested, always faithful, Brother forever · What do you think about horses? Have you ever ridden a horse? Horses are nice strong creatures and yes, I've ridden a horse. · Who was your hero when you were growing up? Which of his qualities did you admire? Superman... Never gave up in his quest in saving humanity Now as the interview table turns to the interviewer , he would wish, his questions were small. Okay to answer the same questions that I asked you too 1. I want you to know that I want us to take this relationship further because I believe and see with each correspondence that you are that special woman that I have been searching for as I think that you are such a nice, gentle, caring lady with an open heart. 2. I basically don't like a woman or anyone who compares anyone with each other, I believe in treating people with respect and love, as u would like them to do so. About myself, I am very neat and organized person, or u can say i try to be on top of it if possible. 3. It is very important to me that my partner gets accepted and at the same time get respect by my family, as I would like the same from my partner's side. Fortunately, with my family i don't have a problem, cause they always will support me in my decisions and respect it, we don't interfere in each others life but will always be there if needed. 4 & 5. An easy going cool lady who is gentle, romantic at heart, confident, honest, caring, understanding, an exciting person to be with and have a positive outlook on life and as mentioned in my prior emails; I am very comfortable in my life and cannot complain, cause for me money is not my topmost priority, i don't think money, as everything in life. 6. I cannot put myself as a dominant person but I do believe in self respect and to me it's end of a good relationship if someone is dominant as relationship is best when it's a give and take relationship and there has to be adjustments done by both partners and certainly to the kids It's necessary to be dominant of the good traits to them 7. To maintain a successful relationship between couples, there's the need for pure, mutual understanding, trust worthy, keeping the word, not giving up on each other, unchanging and remaining same in the personality in a good way, being there for each other for better or for worst, as a finger that wipes the tears and a shoulder to lean on, supportive, encourages, no cheating, open up, no secrets, commitment, respect each others feelings, being co operative, listening to each others opinion respectfully, feel the spouse is the better half till death, no 3rd person to get involved in love life (very important ), sit down and have an eye to eye, heart to heart, communication to solve issues honestly. 8. If either partner doesn't fulfill their roles, which possibly is necessary in daily life it's not something anyone would like, including you or me. It's true simple and small things count a lot in life, I believe it, this again goes back to a partner being loving, caring, respectable, humble, family oriented and most importantly honest. Though there's no perfect being on earth but at least, we all try in our little ways to be and that to me is more than enough. 9. Nothing to me is more important in life. My first priority has always been my family to me and I still believe in that, no matter what culture and what country we belong to. I enjoy many simple pleasures in life....the nature....I love it! the sound of the rain, of the river, to walk by a lake or river, be in a cabin by the lake, the smell of fresh good coffee in the morning, the smell of the roses....(I love it!), to be at home watching a good movie and cuddling with my soul mate., to be talking and holding hands with my partner in a garden in the evening, gazing at the moonlight beckoning on it to come down and sweep us away from this terrestrial plain... and so many other things! I knew that I will find that special woman one day, but I never knew that it will be this soon. I can't explain much but I feel like I have known you for a very long time, the first time you wrote me and you put me to the state of checking my mail every little chance I get to see if I have a new email from you and I look forward to a wonderful and memorable moments with you and spending the rest of my life with this special woman that I have found by the grace of God, I want to settle down right away but I think we need time to know each other, so we can get to know ourselves better while I finish my job here in Afghanistan. One more thing, I will tell you about myself is that, I always stand by my family in need. When in a relationship or commitment I will stand by my partner at all times. All my heart
Letter 5

Hey Baby (I hope you don't mind me calling you that ?), Honestly, You have put across my face smiles upon smiles that cut through every part of me and honestly, I tell you, this evening here will be the best that I have ever had in a long while. I want you to know that I am doing all fine and good here as It's always a keep awake, stick to instructions and give commands which are sometimes life and death decisions kinda although it not always like that as there's are less intense times like we were having before the sudden thirst of this lunatics that call themselves ISIS for heads of Americans from any conflict zone as the try to gain ground in most Arab nations; but nevertheless, I am much busy as I plan, design, and oversees the construction of buildings here but under quite a security; aside which, I think it's a nice time being here as we got to learn more about the people and their way of life.

When it gets so heated, I keep quiet so that the other person can have the last say and I will try and see things from their point of view to give me a better understanding as regards to what we were contending about and then, if I am wrong, I will accept at a later time to it and if I am right, I will try to make them see why I am right at a later time too as I believe time heals all 8. Do you think it's okay for men and women who are in separate relationships to go have coffee or lunch together? well, I don't know your Idea behind this question ? Will their be any attachments after the lunch or coffee together ? if no, then, it is okay with me. 9. You told me where you come from. Where else have you lived? What was your favorite place and why? I've lived mainly in the U.S. and that makes the U.S. my favorite like the saying there is no place like home and besides, I know all my way around the neighborhood or what to expect as I travel across the country. Sending you lots of smiles to wish you a lovely day. Jacob

A simple board game or watch any other games does the trick for me · What are you most proud about?
Diana · If you were an animal in the wild, what would you be?
I'm a tiger which best describes me. I'm protective of those close to me · If you could travel back through time, what single mistake would you correct in life ?
i wouldn't change anything. who knows, by correcting a single mistake , maybe many of the good things in my life would have never happened. · What makes you laugh/cry?
At this time in my life of having witnessed a lot... I cry to nothing but Diana's tears and yours I guess as I think you of you often here too aside which situations don't get me teary as this is life and a lot happens in it and we have to deal with it else it grows bigger than it was at the time of tears.

Live, Laugh, Love · What is your biggest fear?
I would answer with a quote from A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles by Marianne Williamson. 'Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be ?'
· BONUS question: What do u think of my English? J Pls be VERY HONEST, not too polite. J
Your written English is honestly quite cool and very understandable

Ohh my Baby, As time rolls by, it brings me yet another day to been close to you... In the earlier hours of the day here, I was caught in a dream of you baby; that I wished more than anything that it had lingered on... Sweetie, I miss you more than I've missed anything before, though I can't explain all these happening to me, guess sometimes life hits us with surprises at times. I am really so happy right now as I read your mail and write you as It is a happy day for us today as I received my discharge certificate this morning here and you can get to see a copy as I am attaching it with the email. wow!!! Although right now, I can't bring my lips to your ear and whisper to you before I leave for work, I just want you to know that you’re like my princess from those fairy tales... like the one who saved the prince that was turned into a frog by the witch's spell and stole his heart. The ones with the happy ending... When they got married and lived happily ever after, yeah... just like those. I hope our story ends with a "Happily Ever After." But dreams come true... Just like in fairy tales.

Oh, I have missed you dearly today. With the simplest kiss, you have made my heart soar and my body tingle with anticipation of your warm. Baby, you are amazing.
