I received a mail from a russian girl, after several letters she asked me for money for her visa, fortunately I was playing with the internet and wrote her last name in a searcher, a tennis player and your service appeared, her name was part of a story, I read the story and several more and found the same letters she wrote to me. 

I just wrote her that her name appeared in an internet scam, that she doesnīt even exist, and said goodbye. I checed the pics in your site and didnīt find hers. She wrote me no more.  Thank you for your page, you saved me money and pain.

Ekaterina Strelkova

Just a quick update on lodging a complaint with authorities. Namely that I was scammed by "Ekaterina Strelkova". I lodged my officail complaint to the Russian Embassy here in Australia, and also with the Russian Interior Ministry, via the Australian Consulate in Moscow. The Embassy here didnt even bother to send me an acknowledgement note, and I am pretty sure that I would have heard nothing more except i went over their heads and took my complaint straight to the Ministry responsible. I have developed a pretty good contact with a member of the Consular Staff, and i am pretty sure that, whilst the Consulate has not gone onto bat as such for me, they did at least make the Russian authorities make it look like they were doing something. The Consulate also said they wanted to know of any other Australians that were bitten by scams like this. That was easy. After, I had posted up my story on your page, I received 3 or 4 e-mails from other men who had also been scammed by this same person in recent weeks. There was a Canadian, an American, and two Aussies that wrote to me, that I can remember. So I sent the messages I had received from these men to the Consulate as well. I cant get over the number of people being fleeced by the same identity though, the people behind it must be making a motza out of it!!! Enough to pay their way out of trouble perhaps.....who knows. After two months I had heard nothing, and was beginning to think that I had wasted my time. Finally the Consulate got back to me last week, with a message that the Russian Interior Ministry had almost finished their enquiry. It should be ready in a few weeks apparently. I wonder what they will say? I am still sceptical.  Because of the hassle I am causing you with this other matter, you are welcome to publish this e-mail on your web page for blacklist stories. I hope to hear from you soon.

Lyudmila Kovalenko (Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine)

I am a 52 year old Belgian man and I have been scammed by Lyudmilla Kovalenko from Nadya Agency in Dnepropetrovsk. I am not a native speaker in English, so excuse me for some grammatical errors. Ludmilla Kovalenko is also listed in many other places like absolute.agency, freedating.ru etc... This is the story : After two months of correspondence we agreed to meet each other in Istamboul. She wrote me to tell that she allready had an international passport and that I only should pay for her trip to Istamboul. She asked me first to send her 200 us$ by Western Union to buy an airplane ticket from Dnepropetrovsk to Istamboul with a local Ukrainian air company. I sended her this 200 $ by Western Union to her adres in Dnepropetrovsk When she received the money she sent me immediately another mail to ask me $ 1000, that she "needed " only to "show " to the Turkish customs when she would arrive in Istamboul !! I answered her that such an amount is't necessary and that nobody would ask her to show any money, that she would receive at the Istamboul airport a visa for Turkey for only 10 us$. I was very confident in the fact that she was a serious woman, because unlike other scammers she did't play the " love game " and remained allways reserved and serious in her letters. After a few mails and phone calls she understanded that I would never send her this 1000 $ and ...yes, she wrote me to not have any contact with her anymore.She never intended to travel to see me and tried to make her scam in two times, first with 200 $ and after receiving that amount she tried to have more.... I send you hereby the mails concerning this matter and also some picitures of her.... beware now she appears on several sites with coloured blond hair. Thank you for publishing this message Jean Louis

Dear Jean- Louis, I very grateful to you for your good letters, for your attention and care of me. I am happy to have the fine friend, as you. I have received money, many thanks. I now have some problems. In firm where I should buy tickets, I had the prevention that after the arrival to Turkey (Istanbul) on the customs control I should give one thousand dollars. Women of Russia, Ukraine who come on  round to Turkey, should have at themselves such sum of money. Without this sum of money they will be in trouble also return home. I now have no such sum of money. I do not know, how me to be, I do not want to be in trouble. Dear Jean-Louis, what you about it think? I do not want to create to you a problem.

Victoria Maysyura (Dnepropetrovsk,Ukraine)

Victoria Maysyura lives in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine She is 32 years old and has a daughter named Yevgenia. She lives with her mother and targets older gullible men. The one I know about was 25 years older than her. She quickly pressures them into getting engaged, and convinces them to buy an engagement ring. Her aunt and mother assist in her money requests. After the man leaves, she demands $500 per month for living expenses and other costs associated with the K-1 visa process. She milks the guy as long as she can, frequently coming up with other reasons for money requests. Here is her picture. She was listed on the Angelika Network but they removed her as soon as they heard about her scam.  Thanks. Joe


Tatyana/Elena Karpova

I appreciate SO much your web site. I had placed a personal ad to look for a possible eligible young lady to meet, and shortly afterward I got a letter from a Russian Lady named Tayana Karpova who stated her real name was Elena.   After just a few letters she began to profess her undying love for me, which seemed to all happen very quickly. And then before I knew it she was asking me for money for a visa to come to the USA. I was a little suspicious so I did a web search and I am glad I did! I found your web site and realized that this was a popular scam, and that I was about to become a victim!  Anyway I wanted to share my story with you and your readers.... here are a few excerpts from the letters: 

This is from only her 4th letter:  At the given moment my feelings to YOU already, that it is more than friendly. I to feel, that we as 2 small streamlets, which run in themselves, and at the end of ways merge in one large river. Which to break all barrier on the way for the sake ofone purpose. To your words I begin to understand that you the man of  honour. Your words, which you write to me warm my soul and heart. So it is wonderful, when there there is in this world a man to which I is not indifferent. It is pleasant to me so that to receive from youletter and feeling, which I thus check to not pass by words.
