The above message links to various websites that run a forum... and point to a direct post:

An example forum post:
Hi everyone!
My name is Elena,
I live in Moscow (Russia) and have a dream like many other girls – I want to find my love and live a wonderful life together!
This is not the only my interest, but for now it has become a priority.

Interestingly, when I looked a one forum post... it showed people are looking at the scams,
let's hope they aren't actually falling for them:

988 people clicked on one link, in one version of email in the space of 3 hours

Cheers,
