I know that many scams are out there and everyone needs to be very careful! Just never send money. But.........I met and married a beautiful Russian lady that is more than I could have ever dreamed of. I went to Vladivostok last October after emailing and talking on the telephone for several months.  She came here on 12/23/01 and we were married on 2/27/02. She is  intelligent, hard working, sexy, gorgeous and we are very happy together.

Oksana Krasnitskaya (Kharkov, Ukraine)

I work in the neuropsychological field, with children and young people, in a town in Northern Sweden. I met Oksana at Matrimus in Decembet year 2000. I felt very strong for this lady and I  wanted to be a good man for her and a friend and good stepfather  for her child. It is difficult for me to report her but I do  not want other men to fall through the same chaos as I did. It  took time to decide but here is my letter. After reading you decide if she is a scammer or a probably scammer. Be alert if you meet her profile at a marriage agency. People can change, specially when their situation changes. Maybe in a couple of years she will be a lady you can trust. Learn from me: as soon as lady comes with certain types of stories that implies giving money, run away from her even when she had not directly ask for money! 

I sent her some money from time to time and then we met in April 2002. I could not travel before so I asked her to wait, if she was serious, and to remove her ad from Matrimus. She did so. She's a very subtile lady when asking. Your dreams will easy make you ignore that you see she is trying to make yourself take the initiative to open your wallet. She could say: "I can not travel before paying my debts" (several thousands dollars). Of course, this is a statement with an implicit message. The statement enclose the underlying meaning that you have to react to it in some way, for instance taking the initiative to say "do not worry, my love, I will pay your debts so we can soon be together". I told her she can earn more money in Sweden and together with me she can pay her debts. She listened to me only when a relative working in the agency said I was right. It takes years for her to pay so much money! We could not wait that long! The only way to do it quick was if I gave her money. Yes…I went blind because I liked her. Think, what a play from december 2000 to June 2002! A period of my life gone! I could be with another lady maybe. I wasted my time with her. It is like if these girls do not understand how themselves would feel if somebody do the same against their hearts. They've difficulties putting themselves in the place of the other. Well, maybe we humans would do anything when we need money. She could say too that she could not travel before the dentist finished fixing her teeth. And it would costs I think $200. I answered Sweden has good dental care, hight technology and resources and it cost less. But she trusted only her dentist in Kharkov. He is very good, she said. Of course, I wondered many times about many things over there but what could I do? I was already there and payed $1000 to travel and to have a flat. And then I wanted to be good for her. And we had waited so long time! Well, you sure understand how it can be. I always though that it was strange that she could wait so long time for a man. I told her that and I asked her why she waits so long for me. "I like you", she answered. I wonder now if she had other men at the same time that she had contact with me and got money from them too. It's around 1 year and 6 month of contact! Was I the only one? The must probably, I guess, is that she already had a local man from Kharkov too. When we met we decided we felt good together and would marry. Then it comes that I needed to pay for her passport. The price depends of how quick you want the passport. She got shortly ungry and aggressive when I started asking questions about that and shouted out: "Ok, I will pay myself my passport! Only poor people pay for waiting 3 months!". Her reaction had no proportion to how we were talking and handling the issue. I said I will pay, take it easy. So I did. I sent her later $300 through Western Union. The passport would cost $250 to get in 2 weeks. She never got that passport in 2 weeks. I still do not know at this moment wether she has a passport or not. In my last letter I shouted out that I wanted to see her passport. The reply to my letter came from the agency: she wanted to stop all correspondence with me.  She wrote to me that she had found her ex-husband and he did not wanted to sign a document where he allows their child to travel abroad (see her email letter) but if I pay money -a lot of money- then maybe (and only maybe. Hmm…it looks like getting ready to say no after getting the money!) then maybe he would allow the child to travel. I answered that in Sweden authorithies do not ask anymore for such a document. She can just travel with the child if she likes 'cause it is assumed that father and mother agree about that. Then she changes the story. Now the child does not want to travel because he missed his father and he wants to be together with his father. I confront her with the sudden change and now the new story is thatthe child never wanted to travel abroad (my fault she said) but she though she would make him change his mind and that's why she never told me the truth from the beggining. So, she said yes to marry me knowing that the child did not wanted to travel and be with me? And so on…and so on… Well, I will make it short: She changed story all the time, she adapted to my arguments, to the scene. She avoided me when we met, never gave me a kiss, not even a little one with a gentle touch of lips. Probably she had a local man all the time and this is maybe one of their ways to make a living. Yes, yes…I know…I was blind, ok? When she realizes that it is time to move and that I had no intention to pay former husband's debts then she puts an ad in another marriage agency. I was lucky to find her ad (while looking for another person that a friend wanted to find). Then I could not close my eyes anymore! I discovered this ad while we still were arguing about the situation otherwise only God knows how far things would have developed. I asked her how could she put an ad now? Does the ex-husband allow her to travel now? Does the child want to travel now? He doesn't want to be near his father anymore? She said she put an ad because I started to talk about other Kharkov's girls…but does it matters when 1)former husband doesn't allow either her or the child to move abroad, does it matters when 2)the child himself wants to stay with the father?, does it matters when 3)the child doesn't want to move abroad with the mother and live with me? I have very big difficulties in understanding how a woman can place a profile in a marriage agency after giving me all this three story versions above, versions that so effective stop the enterprise of building a family with a Western. I informed this agency (Russian Zest) that they had a scammer. I sent her letter, gave insider information and scanned and sent a receipt from Western Union to them. They removed her profile at once from the agency and from the whole Angelika Network:  Dear Sir,  I never keep scammers on my site and when I have any prevent of it (as I do now) I will remove her immediately from my site and from tomorrow she will be not shown on my site any more. Thanks for your effort and warning." "This lady wad removed from all sites of Angelika Network and will never come back.  Thanks for all your information, it was very helpful.  Kind regards, Svetlana Mahoney" I got a letter from Oksana telling that herself removed her profile but it was me who removed it! ???  Of course, not all of the ladies in Matrimus are like this one. I have not informed Matrimus but they know because they were translating our correspondence. Julio. 

Oksana's letter:

Hello dear Julio, Today as I promised you I came to the agency in order to get your letter and write you mine. Julio, sorry that yesterday I could not listen to you attentively but when you called I was sleeping. You know it's difficult to sleep for 4 hours eachday. So yesterday I wanted to sleep when we were talking. I'm sorry. Julio, today I met Yaroslav's father or my former husband. Julio, yesterday I asked you not to be pessimistic but today I understood that you were right and everything was as you told but even worse. He didn't beat me but when he found out that I'm going to move he didn't allow me to do it. He didn't hear any reasons. He doesn't want to allow Yaroslav to move from the country. The only thing, which can help to solve it. (I can't write it in the letter). Now he has a lot of debts. And he told that if I paid all his debts might be he would allow us to move. But it's a big sum of money. Neither you nor I have such money, that's why he hides from everyone. He thinks that if I want to move to another country it means, I found a rich husband and in order to move I will do everything. He didn't want to hear any reasons that I'm going to move to not a rich man. He told that he wouldn't allow his son to move to another country to live there in poverty. I talked to him for 4 hours but couldn't do anything. Julio, I don't know what to do. Please, advise me something. I get a depression now. I'm in blind alley. I promise you to try to talk to him again. Hope will die in the last turn. Wait for your letters, Oksana  

Tanya Krasnova (Troshina)

I found it interesting That Tanya/Svetlana Krasnova is a plagiarist as well as a scammer. She used the name Tanya Troshina in my communications with her. When I read andrew Huntley's experience, which was very similar to mine, I couldn't belive it bu there were MY WORDS AND PHRASES in her letters to him. The following passages are mine: 

Though I don't have much to share with you today (newswise), I just don't like to let a day go by without letting you know how much I think about you. From the first waking thought in the morning until Morpheus overtakes me at night, your presence is somehow always here with me. I still don't really understand the mechanisms, but I certainly do enjoy the feeling. It's very hard to put these feelings into words. We all have dreams, but I think instinctively we don't really dare to let ourselves seriously believe that suchdreams can take human form. But that is how this feels, with one big exception, and it's a positive exception. Dreams are fragile, and subject to quick disillusionment. Somehow I get no sense of fragility to us. We may both be dreamers, but we both seem to be aware that what there is between us is very real and very strong better than any dream I could imagine. I could hardly wait till the end of this day to be able to "talk" to you at least in this way, since it seems to be impossible to do on the phone.... Thoughts of you fill my days and nights. I can think of little else. I'm not complaining. I'm just amazed. I kept waiting for this feeling to ease with the time, and now I've finally realized I must adjust to it, which is easier said than done. Finishing this business part of my letter, I would like to set a time of our next conversation over the phone, if you like this idea, of course.  I am sure, we will barely touch the food and drinks for we will be too nervous, full of emotions and excitement to think of anything else... I can't wait to see you, Andy. I also want us to discover things and places together, and for you to be my guide... With you, anyplace and everyplace is wonderful. You should know that I want us to share everything. I cherish you, Andy... I know how special you are. I see it and feel it constantly. There is so much we can learn from each other, and so much that we offer each other. Our potential is huge - a life of infinite possibilities just waiting to be explored together. I trust your judgment. I value your intelligence and I want to know your viewpoint on everything. I have this feeling that you can do anything you really want. 

This person is a highly skilled scammer. She should know that good writing doesn't come cheap. If she is using my words, perhaps a portion of what she scammed from me should be repaid as a fee for my writing skills. If not, perhaps I should copyright all responses, then sue the people who illegally reuse the material. I'm joking, but this is really insulting. 


Tatyana Stolyarenko (Kiev, Ukraine)

I am a divorced 39 year old white male. Thank's to your website, I was alerted soon enough, before falling victim to one of the scammers posted on your website. I too, was taken in by Tatyana Stolyarenko. Whoever is behind this one, is very convincing. They say all the right things, from the initial e-mail, to the phone calls. I was first contacted by Tatyana through American Singles on July 27. I had forgotten that I had even posted a profile there, as it had been at least a year old. I have since found her profile there is no longer available to the public.

I not looking for casual friend or penpal. Correspondence is expensive for me and so I take it very serious. I do not want play on internet. I want to start my life with partner. I don't know what else to write you about myself. If you have questions, I will answer to my best. Please remember, I cannot always reply very next day. E-mail is expensive for my poor budget, besides, I hope we can save some conversation for when we should meet or that I may to call you sometime from friend's or agency. :) You can ask me everything and we may have chance be together to build life, a family and fulfilling both our dreams. I get so excited about this life. :)) I want you to think of me as I would think of you. We do not have to be apart. Why should we? Life very short. I want as many years with my partner as possible.

When I am meet to you, I should tell you, that I will not let you go easily. If you good to me, I will not let you go at all. ;) I'm not like some woman, who bounce from one guy to the next guy.

Of course I received the same photos as the other guys too, which are enclosed as attachments. I've reduced their size and compressed them for e-mailing, but it doesn't matter much...their no different than the others I've seen posted here. She/He/It is very good at what they do...I've noticed that practically all of the men contacted, are intellegant, older men. These scammers are good, their thorough, and work fairly quickly. It's important that we get the word out. After the initial phone call from "Tatyana", I came across your website, oddly enough, while doing a search for the currency exchange rate. I had previously tried researching her, but lacking a last name until near the end of our correspondence, I couldn't unearth any information about her. I e-mailed her and the "agency" the next day, after she couldn't reach me by phone the second time, stating she was a fraud and a scammer, with the link to this website...Haven't heard a thing from her or the "agency" since. Thank you for your website

At my first letter I want to tell you that I use the service of the translator because I don't now English well. I studied it at school but it is not enough to understand the sense of your letters and thoughts.This agency is near my college and it's very convenient for me to go there and to take your letters. Ok,I don't know may be after all these  details you won't write me back but I hope that our communication will be more then only letters and words. I want to be happy and to find romantic man for me. May be my dream about Cinderella and charming prince will come true and I will find my destiny. What do you think? And may be you know a little Russian or Ukrainian? I wait your next letter very much and thank you again for your attention. I asked to attach my picture and please send me yours. With sincereness Alesya.


Hello dear Jack, I was very glad to get your letter and I want to hope that our so romantic meeting will grow in something more bigger and wonderful even we live so far away from each other. Do you want the same? Of course it's too early to speak about what will happen with our relations further but...we can at least dream about it:))). Dear Jack, unfortunately, as I was told at the agency they could not open your pictures. They have to be in the format jpg. My dear friend, I would like to tell you about my family in this letter.I think I am very lucky with my parents. Because I think there are no more kind, understanding and pleasant people. My mother and father are together almost 20 years already but i have such feeling that they met each other not for a long time ago. With so faithfulness they treat each other! My mother is a teacher of Mathematics,she worked and working at school. My father was a military pilot before,he worked in Hungary before. But for the moment he doesn't work at the army,but he still works like an engineer in our town. By the way I was born in Hungary but I don't remember about that time because I was too small that time. When I was a 8 years old,we had a new member of our family,my younger sister Olga. Now she is 11 years old and she studies at school. In the whole we try to be peaceful with each other. But sometimes we should come to the path of war:))) And the reasons can be very different. To make a long story short, we are like other sisters in this world. You know, I read somewhere that the growing or personality depends upon his surrounding. I think it's very correct and I ma happy that I was born in such good family. In the family where my parents respect each other and teach me how to respect others. Where love and trust are the most important in human being. I don't remember any case when my parents shout or scream at us or each other. But any way we know that parents are higher us and we try not to disappoint them. I want to believe very much that my own family will be the same. I can't imagine my family the other way. And I would like that my future husband be like my father( not appearance of course),I would like he value woman only because she is a woman,be loving,caring and of course intelligent. Jack, dear, I don't go on for any kind of sport. Sometimes I go to the gym, to keep my body in a good shape. My measurements:86-58-88. I'd like to have two kinds in the future, but I am afraid to predict any events. They say here: man proposes, God disposes. So we will see. I think that sex is very important in our life and as for me too. I cannot tell you right now how often we will have with my future husband. Time will show. Well, my honey, unfortunately, I have to close this letter for the moment and want to wish you good luck!!! I'll be waiting for your replay and hope to get it very soon. With tenderness, Alesya


Hello dear Jack, I was very glad to get your letter and I want to hope that our so romantic meeting will grow in something more bigger and wonderful even we live so far away from each other. Do you want the same? Of course it's too early to speak about what will happen with our relations further but...we can at least dream about it:))). Jack, dear, I am agree with you that before our meeting we have to get to know each other better. Of course, I'll try to answer all of your  questions.You know there is so many people in this world that when you try to imagine the number of them your head begins to spin. And all of them have their own lives, feelings, values, problems and joys. And once you meet one of them  and you interfere his or her life and become a part of it. You find out his or her problems, you share yours, you become two parts of one whole thing and you supplement each other giving each other that you do not have yourself... You know I think that everything in this world is not for no particular reason. I think everything has its own sense and meaning and  everything has a chance to change our life. Every little things. And I think that even the fact of you writing  that letter to me has its own meaning and influence to my life. OK, my  dear Jack, I stop my letter for now in hope to see your answer soon. Have a nice day. Hug and kiss you tenderly, Alesya.


Hello dear Jack, Thanks for your so sweet and interesting letter!!! You may believe may  not,but I didn't imagine before how it's excited to wait a letter from man  who lives so far away from me and....who I never seen in real life! But  please don't pay attention to it,we know about each other and think about  each other at the same time!!!! Jack, dear, I am sorry I did not give you my home address. Here it is: Semanchuk Alesya, Ostraya Mogila,149/84, Lugansk, Ukraine, 91000. Back to my birthday, I was born on September,6. Jack, dear, I am agree with you that our relations should not be stopped by distance. Jack, I could not imagine how it's wonderful and so interesting to wait and to get letters from man you have never seen in real life,but you know about his existence on this planet and that he is  thinking about you!!! It's so unusual and incredible feeling!!!I never thought that I will share my thoughts and feelings with man who lives thousand miles away,  though may be it's even better and easier,when you don't see eyes of the person with whom you are talking. Looking into each other's eyes sometimes it's very hard to speak about intimate. But may be I was not lucky before and I didn't meet that special man. I don't know exactly. But I need to say thank you that now I am waiting your letters very much and for that it's very easy for me to write you. My words like a water and I don't think over every word what I need to write. Well, Jack, I have to close my letter for the moment. Have a nice day. Look forward to hear from you soon. Hug and kiss you tenderly, Alesya. 


Hello dear Jack, Thanks for so interesting and detailed letter. I was glad to get it,it's really so,very sincere. I want to believe that we made already a little steps towards each other and I want to believe also that these steps won't be last and ahead we have many interesting and wonderful!!!!!! You know my dear friend, if compare our meeting with a book then now we opened only the first part of it. May be such compare will be funny for you but woman can let herself such weakness- to dream, yes??? Jack, dear, of course I like roses, especially yellow:))). Jack, my dear, the thought we have met one another makes me happy more and more. We have not seen each other in person yet and even have not heard each other's voices, but in spite of this, your letters mean a lot for me. You opened the door into your inner world for me and I am very thankful to you for it. Now, every morning I wake up with the hope to see your sweet lines. You give me wonderful moments of joy and happiness and I don't want to lose this miracle. I wish we became more closer and closer to one another with our every letter. I don't want to lose the threads of our wonderful relations. But honestly speaking, I am afraid there is a problem that can be an obstacle for us:(((.Dear Jack, it's very inconvenient for me to speak about it but we should discuss one problem. I mentioned to you in my first letter that I don't have my own computer and i don't know English,I know something but it's not very well. To communicate with you i need to use the service of the translation agency,and it means to pay for their service. To pay for your and my letters. Darling,I would be limitless thankful for you if you could help me with it. If I could do it by myself then I would never ask you about it. But sorry for me it's so hard now. I understand of course that you may think that I make you to do this and want to ask money for myself. But please don't think about it and about me from that side. Believe that for me it's very unpleasant. But any way I would like to hope that you will understand me right and correctly and will help me to save the chance our destiny gave to us. Jack, dear, I close my letter for now in hope to see your answer soon in any case.Have a nice day. Hug and kiss you tenderly, Alesya.


Hello dear Jack, I was glad to hear from you again. Jack, I'm a sincere, honest, open-direct person and I want to make it clear at the beginning that I'm not interested in playing games, and I don't want to waste your or my time on prolong, fruitless correspondence. I have serious and honorable intention of marriage, and I want to find my true love as soon as possible so that we can start our new life together. My dear, I think relations in family have to based on mutual love and affection, trust and loyalty and faithfulness between husband and wife, and I promise I'll be your pillar of support and regard your happiness= my happiness! Together, we'll make our dreams come true, so that our relation can be described beautifully by the following simple mathematical equation:X + = 1.? Jack, I am very thankful to you for your understanding of my situation and for your willingness to help me with the payment!!! You know, I even can not find right words to express my thankfulness!!!! I am so happy my destiny presented me this great chance - our acquaintance!!!!!! Thanks to you and your care we won't lose this chance, we'll be able to know one another better!!!! My dear Jack, you came into my life not long ago, but you already became the part of my life!!!! And it's very pleasant for me to realize it!!!!! If you don't mind I'll ask the manger of the agency to give you alldetails as for the payment. Jack, I'll be happy to meet you in person, you are welcome!!!! I'll be your personal guide!!!! Well, my dear, I wish you all the best and look forward to hear from you soon. With tender hugs and kisses. Alesya.


Hello dear Jack, How are you today, or tonight, whichever it may be there. I really missed  getting a letter from you today. I hope everything is OK. and well with  you. I was just sitting here at the agency thinking about you and decided to write. I hope our communication will not stop and I do hope we will be  together soon!!! Dear Jack, I will be very happy to hear from you again. If you decided to  stop our correspondence, just let me know. With kindness, Alesya.


Hello dear Jack, Thank you for your letter, I am glad to hear from you again. I hope everything is Ok with you???? Dear Jack,I understand your fears concerning the marriage agencies. To say the truth I don't like these marriage agencies too, because they work with real people very seldom, usually only with the pictures of beautiful girls. As for me I don't use their services, I use the services of the translation agency. It doesn't bear the responsibility for the relationships between a man and a woman. The agency deals with the translations of the letters.I don't deny that their services are rather expensive. But in our country everything is expensive. My salary, for example, is 150 grivnas, it's about 30$ in your currency. From my salary I have to pay 80 grivnas for the public utilities. And only 70 grivnas I have to live the whole month. This sum is very low to live normally. If we compare the cost of the winter shoes in my place, they cost 90$, the coat or jacket costs from 60-150$. Jack, don't think that I'm complaining about my life, I've learnt to over come the difficulties. I have written all these to compare. We used not to surprise such situation in our country. My dear friend, I am agree with you that feelings can not be bought by money. Money is not the most important issue in life, but if put in balance with other things, it can help with life and family stability, and the realization of dreams. The most important things in life are love- between man and woman, and family. Dear Jack, you ask me what you can get. I think we have to get to know each other better, plan our meeting and only after it start to discuss our future life. I don't think you want to marry a girl even if you have not met her in real life, don't you????? I'm a sincere, honest, open-direct person and I want to make it clear at the beginning that I'm not interested in playing games, and I don't want to waste your or my time on prolong, fruitless  correspondence. I have serious and honorable intention of marriage, and I want to find my true love as soon as possible so that we can start our new life together.My dear Jack, I think relations in family have to based on mutual love and affection, trust and loyalty and faithfulness between husband and wife,and I promise I'll be your pillar of support and regard your happiness= my happiness! Together, we'll make our dreams come true, so that our relation can be described beautifully by the following simple mathematical equation: X + Y = 1.?Jack, dear, I close my letter in hope to see your answer. Kiss you, Alesya.
