Dear Jack I am happy to have an opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Anastasia (Nastya). I am 24 y.o. I'm from North-West Russia - Arkhangelsk city. I dream of a meeting with decent and kind foreign man for friendship and marriage may be. I think it's time to start telling the story about myself. I have long hair and blue eyes. I'm single, without children. My height is 170 cm, weight is 52 kg. I speak English well and German a little. I shall finish University and receive higher education this year - children psychologist and defectolog. I prepare the protection of the diploma. I love my profession very much, and I dreem to bring help to the people. I like to dance very much and I dance very well. When I studied at school I went to the dance school. Also I like to cook. I like to cook for close people.. My friends describe me as an intelligent and ambitious person, kind and considerate and very sensitive. I am an an optimist and a bit of a dreamer and idealist. Sentimental at times, and usually spontaneous. I also care deeply about spiritual things in life. I am somewhat adventurous and like to try new things. I enjoy people. There is so much to know about each other as well as the fact that we come from such different parts of the world. I like my city and my country, all my friends live here and I enjoy by dialogue with them. In my native city we have white night in the summer - now it is very beautifully. At the night also lightly as well as day, only sun does not shine. However in winter we have very short day. I very much love summer, sun and easy clothes. I love to float in warm water. Except for training I give a lot of time to sports employment. I love swimming and aerobic and I think, that it will occupy the important place in my life always. I'm go in for scuba diving during 6 years. Now I'm swimming only for pleasure and maintenance of the form, and some years back I was swimming for achievement of sports results, that is it was the daily struggle with minutes, seconds and with itself. And this sports have learned me discipline and persistence, but I am romantic and pensive and the strong man's shoulder beside is necessary for me. I would like to enjoy life to the fullest. Life is short and every minute of it is worth living and enjoying. Also, I like to think and I have many dreams..? One of the dreams is to meet a wonderful man who will be my best friend and love, with whom I can share the rest of my life through good and difficult times. I hope, that you will become this man for me. I also dream to receive good, worthy work in the future and it to benefit the people. I dream to meet with a serious man, reliable, faithful, understandable, tender, who can see a wonderful creature, a friend in a woman. A man who I can share my life with in good and bad times and give all my love, tenderness, attention and care. I know that international marriage is special kind of marriage when the confluence of different cultures and languages is held. It's rather sad to part with parents and friends. I know that on removing to another country I will have to change many outlooks and life style. I will close for now. Thank you for reading my letter.

Tatyana Stolyarenko aka Oksana (Kiev, Ukraine)

I am a single guy 43 years old from the United States. I was contacted by her on a website cupid junction. I had a profile on there and she wrote to me saying she wanted to start a new life. I sent her money via Western Union. The first time the money was sent to a Emma Levchenko in Kiev. The second time it was sent to Oksana Degtyareva. They were finance officers for phony agency. I will enclose for you photos and correspondence. I want her caught and jailed. She is a thief and a criminal. Her name is Tatyana Stolyerenko. To make a long story short she scammed me out 3500 dollars promising to come over in a student exchange program. After the initial money was sent she asked for a boarding fee of 1500 dollars to be able to fly to the United States. I was sent a phony contract which I will attach for you. Her phony agency which never existed was ConnectingHearts located in Kiew,Ukraine. Please post all info for me. I really had high hopes with this girl and I was very excited about our future. Her letters were very real and compelling but it was all lies. I will sent you all correspondence I received in order. Thanks for helping me. T. Moresi

Letter 7:

Dear Mr. Moresi: All of our clients in this group told us of this boarding fare requirement right away. We had never heard of this fare. Apparently this was incorporated on June 1 this year. So we checked into it and we deeply regret to inform you that it is new policy of customs. I don't know if Ukraine Embassy would even have this information. In fact Customs informed us, Canada and many other foreign countries are setting up boarding fares policies. They said, this boarding fare is assessed to make sure girl has way to live in your country for certain period of time. Their effort is to filter out girls who may commit prostitution and other such crimes in US to survive. They will not take reference from your country that girl will be provided for. As you might expect, this would not be certain. We regret that this may cause some inconvenience for you and Tatyana, but she can change flight date for a later departure. And we can assure you that what she informed us is correct. I feel very bad after compliment from you on our work, that we could not detect this early on. Just an unavoidable snag it seems. At least it is not fee, but rather pocket money requirement. Tatyana will return this to you as soon as she arrives of course. And we would like to help. If you need, we can loan Tatyana $500 if you promise to send it back to us upon her arrival. Then you will only need $1000. There is still a bit of kaos, while we have all of the other departing clients to inform who have flights going out also. Tatyana has informed us that she wishes us to receive this fare for her. In case you are able to resolve this issue right away, you may prepare transaction to one of our finance officer as before: name: Emma Levchenko  city: Kiev country: Ukraine (not Russia) We will make sure travelling checks are prepared for Tatyana to be safe. We are very sorry for the inconvenience, and hope that you are able to resolve this issue without a set back. Sincerely, Ekaterina Smirnova, Account Manager

Good try! But she failed! Drew

Marina Nizhpapa (Lugansk, Ukraine)

91000,post box 50, Lugansk, Ukraine Phone: 380-642-498-354 (her e-mail address)

I responded to an ad in American Singles. That took place In July of 2001. I just found your page and decided to contribute. The lady in question is Marina Nizhpapa from Lugansk, Ukraine. I think she was used by the Agency Crosswinds. I sent a brief letter introducing myself. She responded with a long letter written in acceptable English. In the same (first!) letter she went straight to the point about mine paying for her correspondence. I became immediately suspicious and suggested we have a phone conversation in Russian (I do not need a translator). I was given a phone at some strange place where Marina supposedly worked. Several times she repeated her request for money. However, she sounded somewhat uncomfortable and, thus I think she was used and intimidated by the Agency. I refused to pay for correspondence but instead suggested a meeting in Kiev or St. Petersburg. She said that she would have to come with an escort to "protect" her. I guess I was supposed to pay for that as well. I refused, but received several other letters with some "juice". There are some of her pictures. It was surely a very young girl based on our discussion (17-20) but she may not have been the one on pictures or she may have been asked to cheat foreigners of their money. She also mentioned several times that she has a written agreement with the Agency, which prohibits her from writing on her own. She also supplied an address being a P.O. Box in Lugansk. Her pictures have popped up several times on other sites for a year or two. I did not send any money. I was very attracted to this girl though. Overall, Lugansk seems to be a capital of a "marriage-dating" fraud. However, not all girls there are fraudulent. It is difficult to distinguish between bad and rotten apples. The only way to have some assurance is: 1. hire a translator in the USA to help you communicate 2. never rely on letters - insist on a phone conversation from work or home 3. Ask for as many pictures as possible with relatives, at home, some scenarios 4. Come to visit but NEVER use an Agency!! There are American Hotels in Kiev, Moscow or St. Petersburg. Use them! 5. If you are to buy tickets buy non-refundable using a credit card through airline agencies in the US  Make no mistake: Russian girls are mainly decent, honest and want a family. They will make you happy and will be great wives. But as with a stock market - do you homework!! Good luck 

Letter 1

My darling _________!!! So glad to read your Russian words by English letters!  A little bit about myself. You should know me not only how I look on picture but also know my inner world. As you know already I am 19 years old. Yes, I am too young but I am serious enough, who can achieve everything I want. Now I study at the University and after finishing it I am going to be a doctor, children's doctor. But at the same time I work like a nursery in the hospital. Not I live in Lugansk with my girlfriend, we rent a flat for two, she studies with me at the University. My parents live in the other town, it's not very far from Lugansk,50 km. I have a sister, she is older me, she is a professional in athletics, she is a master of it. We are very friendly but we are tow different characters. She is very shy and silent girl but you can see always smile in her face and I am sure that you will like her very much when you meet her. What can I say about what do I like to do?? Ok,you should get to know it and only after this you can understand my soul and me. I try to be very honest with people, I never betray and I hate it. I am very open person and like this feature in people. I am very trustful girl and I 've burnt because of this very often. In our country very dangerous trust to people. But I always treat people as I want they treat me. I want to build very strong and friendly family where always love and respect present. But in our time very difficult to achieve this goal. I love my parents very much and always proud of my family. My father is a policeman and I think I have his character. he loves me very much and I spoiled with his love. My dad is also very open and easy going person. I proud of him very much. My mother works at the baker's shop. They are perfect couple. My mother is very calm and tender woman. She always tries to avoid all sharp corners in relationship. If they have serious talks or something else they always go somewhere to be alone and back with smiles and very happy. We never know what is going on. Now when I grew up I know that it's very right decision that children shouldn't know anything bad and unpleasant side of life. And we never heard bad talks between them. I saw only that they try to smooth all trouble without screams and reproaches. They always found understanding in relationship. The wisdom of my parents helped me to understand how we should build families and how to act in family life. I don't try to find ideal man, and I don't want to rebuild him. Everyone has his good sides and his bad sides. We are not ideal. But we should understand each other or at least try to understand. And if you made some mistake you should try to find a way to change it and manage with it together. I think, and it's very sincere, if two people love each other they can be happy and any circumstances won't prevent them to be happy or apart them. ______,my dear, I think now you understand me betterand you know a little about my soul and me. if you have any questions lease ask, I will answer all your questions. Don't be shy. With impatience I wait your next letter. Kiss you.  Marina. PS. My dear, as you know I use the service of the local agency because I don't have my own computer and I don't want to lose our communication. Is it possible for your to pay for your letters?

Letter 3 

Dear ________,I enjoyed reading your e-mail. I was right about you. You are not only so intelligent, you also have abeautiful personality. So want to know more and more about you. I appreciate the things you adore in life, your goals, your hobbies, and your idea of having a strong and lovely relationship with the woman you want to be forever. So want to create durable family...  Now I'm studying... I really like my field and pretty interested in doing research. Hope for a great future. I think, all students have an interesting life. My mother said that these years are the best. I love traveling. I enjoy learning about different cultures and make new friends. I love to try different food, Ukrainian is my favorite. I like cooking (when I have time, because of my part-time work I sleep only 6 hours a day).  I think a glass of champagne and a candlelight can make any thing tasty!!!  I enjoy out door activities like biking, swimming. I also like reading and interested in different kind of music. What are you looking in your life? What do you expect from your future partner? The most important things for me  is if he knows who he is and what he wants in his life. I like somebody who knows how to compromise in a relationship. I'm looking for a man with lot of class, yet not selfish. I don't see class in luxury cars or expensive costumes, I see it in his personality. Like to be with somebody who can have a place in my heart and would let me be in his heart. Somebody I can't wait till I see him every day. Like you, don't want to play game with the one and love the most. Want to be able to trust him and let him to trust me, It's this a wonderful feeling to have, to have somebody you know you can count on when you need him the most.

Oksana Rybakova (Krasnoyarsk, Russia)

The correspondence began as an email FROM this girl. She said she obtained my email from a singles service which founder is We corresponded for about a month. She was nice... seemed to "fall" for me a little too fast. haha. What made it odd was that she would ignore some of my questions and then address others. The last email raised red flags when the "money" problem came up -- she even listed the exact amounts! Here is her info to beware of: RUSSIA Krasnoyarsk pushkin, 5-28 660094 Oksana Rybakova 

I wont list all her emails because they are the same as the ones already listed previously. But her photo needs to be circulated because she always included one in each email. Here are the ones I did not see in the others info about her.
