i Mail-order bride is a woman who publishes her intent to marry someone from another - usually more developed - country.

The text is from a swindle e-mail proposing the receiver to send money for the supposed mail-order bride's traveling and visa costs.

The image is from the Kiddius, a strawberry dessert produced by the Finnish dairy company Valio.
