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.

Svetlana Dubrovina (Makeevka) Lida/Lidiya Kurtutkina & Donbass Travel Agency

I am a white male from the USA and I would like to report to you about Svetlana Dubrovina who is an obvious scammer and seems to working hand in hand with a scammer reported to you earlier by the name of Lida (Lidiya) Kurtutkina. Svetlana has a profile at Matchdoctor as " Sveta5" and her e-mail address is . Her address is Zheleznodorozhnaya str., 24/27, Makeyevka,Ukraine 83050. Svetlana wants me to send her $1390 by Western Union to her or to the manager of this travel agency, Lidiya Kurtutkina, so that she can get a visa, airline tickets and also passport to visit me in the United States. The travel agency that she is supposedly using is Donbass Travel Agency ( ) and guess who the director of this agency is, non-other than the scammer Lida Kurtutkina (See Report about her at

/individ/new/kurtutkina/kurtutkina_lida.htm and also report on Ella/ Elvira from Ekaterinburg, Russia at ).

It appears that Svetlana and also Lidiya have the exact same home mailing addresses where they live. They are also using many different photos of women to carry out their scams. Please make sure that their photos are well placed on your scammer wall of shame so that these people can not scam others.  Sincerely, S.H. ( Scam Hunter )


I am so happy to receive your letter. Your letter has come the very first and I am glad, that I has awoke namely your interest. I think it will be interesting for you to become familiar with me more closely and thats why let me tell you a few words about myself. I live in Makeyevka. It is very small town, which is situated in Ukraine. I live together with my parentsApart from the Russian I speak English a little. I don't know it perfectly, but I hope, that it will not stand for a problem when two persons are eager to understand each other.  I have a lot of different hobbies. For example, now I'm studying how to work with the computer. You understand yourself, that in the modern world it is impossible to live without knowledge of computer and at least one foreign language. Besides I like to have a good time most of all. I am very sociable, easy to talk to and affable person. That's why I have a lot of friends, which consider that I have a good sense of humour. I adore to meet with my friends and to visit discos and night clubs. I like to dance. I have been taking lessons of dances since six years old. In general I like everything extraordinary. For example, I prefer active rest to passive. I like to climb on mountains, to attend picturesque historical places, where it is  possible to find out something interesting. Most of all I like travelling, of course. I have a dream to travel all over the world.  I hope, that my hobbies are interesting for you. I want to know you better. And you? Tell to me about your dreams, wishes and desires. May be you are my second half, because I'm very gentle, sensitive, romantic and vulnerable nature. I'm very easy to be offended, and surrounding world is so severe! I need a man, who will love, preserve and protect me. I feel that I was born to make my darling happy. I am ready to realize any desire of the man, who will love me. I havn't met such man till now I passionately want to continue our acquaintance, and I hope, that our desires are agree. I'll be waiting for your answer with impatience.  Truly yours. From Sveta with love. P.S. Please, ask me everything you want to know about me. I'll answer you questions with a great pleasure. My personall email:

Nice to hear from you again. Can I ask you to send me your photo ? I'm really interested in your appearance! I'm so glad that you've sent me a letter. I'm really interested in you. And with each your letter I understand that you are a very interesting person. So, I want our correspondence will continue and may be in future we will meet with you.  Are you a communicative person or more introverted? What do you like in a partner? Do you like watching yourself in the mirror? What do you think about politicks? Dear , thanks for your reply and I hope to hear soon from you. My kisses and hugs to you,Sveta.

No news from you for two weeks, I began to worry that I've already lost you as a friend & a future lover & husband. But now I'm happy to realise that you want to know me & didn't forget me. You wonder how do i stay in such good shape...I think it's because of my active style of life. I enjoy the sea & beach especially in moonlit night.... About leaving my family I must say that my parents will not be against,because the life standarts in Ukrain are very low,people still live in need and the wages here is hardly enough to make both ends meet. All good relationships start as good friends,dear, and seem to stand the test of time when love develops later.  I feel as if I have a lot to offer someone and my life would be most complete to share it with someone special. The more I learn about you the more I like you. I see that you have the same passion for life as I do. I always want you to know that I am sincere with you and I hope that you never question that. I know other people  can make a lot of promises that they never keep to you. I on the other hand have every  intention of knowing you. I love to travel and I want very much to your country. I hope you feel the same as I. I think it is very possible to know someone so far away and have a very wonderful, loving, and caring relationship. Commitment is the key  and not giving up. I have never felt so good about my decision to meet someone like you  over the Internet. I have no doubt that I am doing the right thing in my life. If I felt this were the wrong thing to do, I would not do it.  I always try to follow my heart in doing the right thing and  I know that what I am doing is the right thing for me.  I hope you know what I mean and you have had similar feelings. Anyway, I will end my letter for now and I will look for your next letter. If you have something to ask me, just remember you can ask me anything you want. I will look forward to it. Sincerely and Affectionately Yours,Svetlana

I don't know what the reaction will be of my family, but I feel that I can trust you. As to your social status I understand that you can invite any woman, but you've invited me and I appreciate this very much. I have never thought that I could ever visit such resorts, to travel around the world, to see the Beauty Europe. And it is beautiful twice that I will be by your side. I don't know where I want to go, but I know exactly that I will be happy anywhere if you are with me. So dear,first of all I want to repeat you:YEEEEESSSSSS I want to come to you!

You cannot even imagine how happy I am! You know everything is in our hands,darling! I think you'll appreciate my eficacy! I found the most reliable & best Agency here, I found out that they can arrange me the tour to Germany for 10 days.All papers arrantgements cost 720$.The passport costs 100$,visa - 50$ the flyticket -570$. As soon as I pay money they will start arranging documents. I was asked if I have my bank account for you to transfer money order,but I have not,so they also told me that the best way of transferring money is by Western Union,I saw a TV-advertisment recently. It must be the safest,queckiest & convinient way. There is an office of Western Union not far from my house. Darling you can send either to my name (Svetlana Dubrovina,Makeevka,Ukraine) or to the name of the Manarger of the Travell Agency directly . I wrote her name on the piece of paper:Lidiya Kurutkina,Makeevka,Ukraine. As for the phone, I have to pain you I do not have it at home. I am very sorry, but in our country even in Kiev not every second family has the phone. If we decide to talk the phone in future I ask the favour of my friend and if she allows me, I will come there to talk to you. If you agree. My days go by with you in my heart and mind every minute of the day! With lots of love and a big long kiss to you  Your sveta  P.S. Reply me soon my angel,pleasssssseeeee

I'm not capable to open my bank account,I repeat you once more that the safest,quickest & most convinient way of transferring money is by Western Union to Ukraine,Makeevka for Svetlana Dubrovina or directly to the name of Manarger of the agency(Lidiya Kurutkina). When you inform me about the control number I'll run to the Western Union office which is near my house & receive it.I cannot understand why you don't trust Western Union,as far as I know it is very reliable. There is also something as MoneyGram,but I don't know about it properly. Also my dear here is the information about this agency: "Donbass Travel Agency" You can ask it all the questions,because I'm not confedent about this. Hope to hear from you soon, Your Sveta

Dear thanks a lot for your $$$,BUT I cannot receive it at the moment!!!!! They told me that I must have the control number,your full name,the city you sent from.So write me soon please!

Svetlana Gausheva (Saransk, Russia)

I am a white male from the USA and would like to report to you about a scammer that has been reported before by the name of Svetlana Gausheva is at it again. She has a profile posted at matchdoctor under the profile name of  "HELPMESOSSOS" and lives in Moscow, Russia. She is now using different photos from what she originally used but she still is using the same scenario of being a poor Russian girl who is a virgin and is requesting money to be sent to her by Western Union for her internet connection. You can see a previous report on her at

/individ/gausheva_svetlana/gausheva_svetlana.htm  Her previous mailing address was: Svetlana Gausheva,Tereshkovoy 2-10, Saransk, Russia 430016  Her e-mail address is 

I have written to matchdoctor several times to have her profile removed and yet it still remains there for some unknown reason. I have even sent them a copy of the letter that she has written to me and still they have done nothing! They are not very good at removing any of the many scammer profiles that I have reported to them (around 20 total). Please beware of this scammer and you can see her letter below. Sincerely, S.H. (SCAM HUNTER)

Waiting your fast reply Kisses and love Yours forever Svetlana 

Tatiana Akinshina and possibly Quest Agency and Manager- Irina Knyaseva 

I would like to report to you about a scammer named Tatiana Akinshina and also her agency named Quest Agency. She is in fact real and her information is: Tatiana Akinshina, Zarechny Kvartal 9/50, Lugansk, Ukraine. DOB Jan. 4th, 1982. No phone number except the Quest Agency phone 380-642-344029. E-mail address is has profiles listed at Adultsingles as Tatiana (#ID D696219 and also at Matchdoctor as Tanyusha_a and probable many others that I am not aware of at this time. The manager of this agency is Mrs.Irina Knyazeva.From other stories I have read about this agency, it appears that they are very clever and have scammed several people and will continue to do so. (SEE REPORTS ABOUT QUEST AGENCY):  Their girls are real, very beautiful and quite sexy and make very good scammers. They are excellent at what they do best and that is scamming people. They do not do the normal type of scam of getting you to send them money for visas, airline tickets, and passports. I believe instead they slowly milk their victims over time with the cost of their letters, gifts, translations and what ever they may deem necessary. The reason why I say this about Tatiana is that she was so crazy about me until she realized that she would not be getting me to send her any money for her letters ( I offered her a solution to her money woes and to use another translation agency for her letters to me and she wanted nothing to do with this (LOL). Once she realized the gig was up, it was time to move on to her next victim where shecould "bear the fruits of her labor" so to speak. 

Just a word of caution to anyone crazy enough to send money by Western Union or any other way to someone with which you have not even me, "DO NOT DO IT"! Instead, alwaysget the ladies address and full name and use another outside agency that you can trustto send and translate your letter for you and your lady.  This will always show you if she is really interested in you or her bank account. If she makes up excuses as to why she wants to use only her agency and does not want to use any other outside agency, move on, as she is not really interested in you at all.This is an excellent way to see her true motives and colors. Any sincere lady who is truly interested in you would not really care how she is able to send and receive her letters if she does in fact have financial hardships. If you are willing to be generousand help to pay for the letters, she should in fact be grateful. Please read the following letters from Tatiana Akinshina which will show her true motives and why I believe that she is indeed a scammer and works hand in hand with her Quest Agency to scam innocent victims. Sincerely, XXXXXX 


Dearest XXXX, Thanks for your perfectly lovely letter. What I especially liked about was that I felt that it was not "serial". I got so many letters from different people, but most of them were "serial" not addressed specifically to me. which was a bit annoying. Anyhow, thanks God I came across a normal letter. OK, I will start this letter with saying that I do not speak English. And sorry that I did not mention it before,in fact I should have mentioned it at the very beginning. The weakest point with me is that I  hardly speak any English at the moment, so I am forced to correspond with you through the agency. This is translation and Internet agency, so please do not be worried about that, OK? But I myself feel that I am restricted to one language only whilst the rest of the world communicates freely in English. Hope you'll be patient here. Yes, completely in agreement, meeting in person will decide whether there is chemistry between us or not, but can I suggest here that we should start knowing each other through letters, which could also be good way of making friends. At least I heard so many stories about people meeting each other on Internet and later making good couple. And I am willing to give it a try myself. Well, in the long run, you never know... Perhaps this will give us both a chance... And thanks for the compliments about my figure. Yes, I try to stay in shape. I used to be in gymnastics and ballet, I quit it later, but old habits and healthy food ration are still there - with me. Yes, I also adore sea, unfortunately I was there only once - it was Black sea coast. Needless to say that I could not afford travelling that much. Yes, you were right in guessing that I put a lot of thought into moving to another country as my own country is in complete mess at the moment. You can be a hero to stay here, but about my children? I do not want them to repeat this miserable life. I take marriage perhaps too seriously and think about my children. What do I make of Americans? I think people are the same everywhere, you can come across different people. But I think you are more fun, men are more hardworking, and women are more career-focused. I hope I do not offend you here. I think the women from our part of the world are usually traditional and believe in the commitment of marriage. I do not know. perhaps these are all tired pre-conceptions, correct me if I am wrong. OK, my postal address, I have to tell you that this is the first time I give my address to a stranger, please understand, as I have said before, I got so many stupid letters. Hopefully my intuition will not let me down here. My address: Ukraine, Lugansk, Zarechny kvartal, 9 / 50. My birthday is January, 04, 1982. I am Akinshina Tatiana, a student, living in Lugansk, writing all the letters myself. And I am real... and serious... Hope just like you are. Yours, Tatiana


Dear XXXX, What can I say here? Words are not enough!!! I could not a vague idea about the reason you asked my address! Incredible! Nobody has ever treated me like that! Thanks a lot. You gave me wonderful minutes of utmost happiness. You know I should tell you the truth here. When I read your first letter, I said to myself "another guy who would disappear". I was not at least sure that we will have such a wonderful beginning!!! You seem to know your way with women. But you know before we go any further I feel I need to tell you something. And sorry that I did not mention it before, in fact I should have mentioned it at the very beginning. The weakest point with me is that I  hardly speak any English at the moment, so I am forced to correspond with you through the agency. This is translation and Internet agency, so please do not be worried about that, OK? That's why I can not write as much as I want to. Sorry for that. I need to earn some extra cash and only then can afford to write a letter. So my apologies for the delay. And something more... I need to you if language barrier could be kind of an obstacle for you. I personally do not see it like this, but it's important that you would be of the same opinion. OK, I will finish now, And I will be seriously waiting for your reply, Love, Tatiana


hello dear XXXXX! Here I am again , your Tatiana, I hope I can call myself so ? But I am sure that it is much better to trust a person and be intimate with the one who is not different to you. I do not know why i felt so much attached to you . Maybe your attentiveness, or your gallantry ? I can not explain to myself why i want to write to you so much . I do not know what a magic flower you have thrown to me, I have definitely caught it ! Thanks for all your compliments , I am very glad to get them . XXXX there is a problem I do not have a home phone number , that is why we can only talk at the Internet office here is the number 380 642 344 029 , there is a time difference between our countries so please think what is the best time for you to call and I will be there to talk to you. One more thing is the date and the time, I am open to any suggestions . OK, a few lines about myself. I am 20, still the age that forces you to look at life through pink glasses. I desperately wish everybody is a little bit kinder in treating others, really well meaning. That would make this world friendlier and closer and change it for better. I wish I can find a guy, who would really need and care about me, whom I would pay off all his efforts in return, who would become my real soul mate in everything we would do. I am a student now, but already think about my future. Try to learn hard, read more, get more knowledge so as to perceive life objectively. All my life and family values originate from the way I was raised by my parents. Now I live with my mom, dad and younger sister. I try to keep fit - do a lot of swimming and gymnastics. It helps me to be in good shape apart from fun that I get out of it. I think i have a very special dream - at least my close friends say that - to make good money and to set up an orphanage for little kids. I presume charity, friendliness and understanding - all the things that would always be returned in a twice as much degree to you. What else... I wish one day I would plunge myself into world-wide journey - would see new sceneries, new cultures, new people. I love fun, love to entertain others and be entertained. I think i am always good natured, i like to smile and see smiles in return. I love to meet new people as it's always a chance to learn something new. I would be happy if you tell me anything that is new to me. At least you seemed to be an interesting personality and I am really looking forward to talking to you more. I would be happy if we both find out that there are a lot of things that are common between us. But this is a real challenge, isn't it - I mean to investigate, compare and imagine things. Anyhow, I am looking for such a guy, who would have capacities for doing that, would wold be able to offer me an interesting, full and meaningful life. Please, understand, I am not the type of girl who awaits for everything to be handed over to her on a silver platter. I am also committed to contributing so much to my  future relationships, i think it's just the case of finding the right guy.  OK, that's all for now, Fond wishes, Tanyusha P.S. I send you my picture,and as for the theatre , I am not sure that I understand everything till the end ,perhaps TV is closer to me , but I hope you will ask me out to the theatre and we will discuss all the plays together , OK? 

4th Letter:

Hello,my XXXX! I was very glad to hear from you. You are very special for me. I feel your soul deep inside, understand? At once we found tendency to each other. I am always thinking about you. You didn't tell me nothing  about telephone conversation. Do you want to speak with me? The translator could help us to speak in agency. Simply I want to hear your voice. I want to get closer you to my family. I send you my photo with my sister. Do you have photo of your family? Please, write more about your family. Do you have any family traditions? I want to know more about your habits. I want to know every little thing about you. I want to feel your mood, support and love you. I thought a lot about theatre. I never thought about it early. The theatre - it's more, than cinema. Theatre - is real life. I saw a wonderful theatre from saint-Petersburg "Yunona and Avos". How I wish to go there with you. I like to know something new in this big world. I think, I can be with you,I want to surprise you every day. I can be only one for you. I'll be everything for you: mysterious and only. You'll never stop to love me. I am waiting for your answer,my Michael. I want to hear word: "yes". I send you my tender kiss with smell of morning dew and exotic fruits, morning cool and light wind. It's the most tender, because especially for you. I miss you. Yours Tatyana

5th Letter:

Hi,dear XXXXX! I'll waiting impatiently, when you back. I wish you success in casino. I see, that you have no mood to speak with me now. Because your letters are not the same as they were before. But its okay, I understand...Maybe you need some time to be alone? Bye, Tatyana. 


Hi,my dear XXXXXX! Didn't you come anywhere? Are you waiting for me? I also want to win in casino. Do you have empty suitcase for me? I am so glad, that you don't feel lonely now. Step be step we'll know each other better. Dear XXXX, I am asking you to help me. I want to be sincere with you. If you really want to continue our correspondence, please help me a bit to pay our correspondence? My income is very poor and I hardly pay for our letters. Hope, you'll understand my situation. Please, help me, I like you and want to continue our correspondence further. I don't want to lose you because of money. I already have dew 35$. If you really can, please help me. Please write me sooner. You can know all details from my manager in Agency. Because I cannot afford it myself anymore. I am waiting impatiently. Yours, Tatyana.


hello XXXXXX! At last you are back ! I hope that you won all the money there and you are fine!:) As for me I have bought a suitcase , you know why ?When we meet you will take me with you . Do you think it will not be a very heavy luggage for you to carry ?:0 To be serious I missed your letters very much they helped me feel better and now I feel a little bit exhausted ,count days till the end of the studding year , I have a month and a half left . Nothing has changed here , I would love to hear more about your trip , how are you , , what are the news ? I think that the things that happened to you are more interesting than my life. I miss you very much here ,but now I have the opportunity to be with you again and I am very happy. Won't you leave me again? I do not want to miss you , and feel lonely again, Kiss you , Tatiana.

8th LETTER:(I sent her a registered letter directly to her home where she had to sign for it. I explained to her that I would help her for the total costs of her letters and that we would now use a letter forwarding agency that I had an account with which had already been paid for and had plenty of money in it to use. I would pay for everything and her only cost would be the cost of a postage stamp ( I think she can afford a postage stamp. I also told her that if she wished, she could still use e e-mail and send her letters in Russian to this agency and they would translate and send them in English directly to me by E-mail. This way, she only had to pay for a short time at the internet cafe which would cost her very little (May be $1 U.S. Dollar for an hour probably if that) 

Hi dear ! I am glad that you are a very caring person and want the best for us, but how do you see our communication through the agency in XXXX, I will have to send them letters and pay for the Internet access any way , you do not trust me at all, how can we continue our relations, bye Tanusha.

9th and FINAL LETTER ! (I again explained to her it would not cost her any money to use the letter translation agency and it she was really serious that it did not matter how we sent each other letters as long as we still could send them. See her response below):

hello XXXXX ! I am very tired of this and want nothing, just do not want to continue quarreling with you about some unexciting thing, bye dear .

Tatiana Pulaeva (Lugansk, Ukraine) Tatiana Zubova from Alishia Agency

I am a white male from the USA and I would like to report to you about a SCAMMER named Tatiana Pulaeva from Lugansk and also her agency Alishia and the director Tatiana Zubova. Tatiana, if she exists at all would not give me any personal information about her and did not answer any of my questions that I asked of her at all in her letters. She has a profile posted at Matchdoctor as Tatiana69 and supposedly is 27 years old and has an e-mail address of . This agency is trying me to get to send Tatiana $150 to her for our correspondence so that we can continue to write letters to one another. The reason she and this agency are a total scam is that I have seen other reports about this agency and also just saw Tatiana's photo listed as a scammer (see report at . Please add her and her agency to your scam list. She has since removed her photo from her profile which seems to be a new ploy used by scammers. I believe they do this so that they will not get exposed so easily, as they have already gotten their initial 4 to 5 hundred letters to start with to try and scam their victims. I have seen a lot more of this lately whereby the women all of a sudden removes her photo but not her profile and it seems as most of these women are scammers for some reason. Sincerely, S.H. ( Scam Hunter )

We have to inform you that you may send money directly to Tatiana for your correspondence and if you have any questions you may ask Tatiana about it in your letters. Your lady's name is Tatiana Pulaeva. If you want to have an unlimited correspondence with Tatiana you should pay $150 per month. If it's not suitable for you we inform you that the translation of one letter costs $5 and one picture costs $2. Translation of telephone conversation cost $5 per 10 min.

I am very romantic, love candle light dinners,  cuddling and care of each other. The only thing I hate about people is when they lie, are not honest and play games.  I am very simple in my thoughts, love to meet people, I am very  trusting, have had some bad experiences but most of the time I end  up meeting people who are nice, I love my work, I think it is  very interesting it makes me meet a lot of different people, I  think people are so different but they are the same in a lot of ways and if you have an open mind and are not critical, you can get along very well with people from different cultures. I am looking for a long lasting relationship, one in which there are  little children who will bring joy to our lives, some dogs (I love  dogs), a lovely house and a lovely caring loving husband who will  be my best friend, my lover, my companion, with whom I will be able  to share all my laughs and sorrows, with whom I can confide in and  also he can do the same. I want to build a relationship, where we can be soulmates and life is one continuos holiday, where everyday will bring joy to our lives, where we can raise nice family, children who are loved all them time, hopefully I can build this lovely relationship with a such a nice person like you, they say pictures do  not say much but I think they do. I will be eagerly waiting for your response. Take care of yourself and write back soon. Hope to hear from you soon Tanya 

If You interesting in me please use this address to write me

Hello It is so nice to received your letter. I think that you are an interesting person. I also would like to have your photo.  Can you send me one? I am attaching a picture of mine (hope  you like it). I am interested in getting to know you better,  and I will tell you anything you would like to know about me, all you have to do is ask:-) I know it can be difficult learning about someone through letters, being far away, and I believe that love can conquer all, so a few thousand kilometers cannot stand in it's way. What would you like to know about  me? I am from Lugansk, not very big Ukrainian city. I am 27, my birthday is November 7. I work as a secretary at the university. I enjoy movies and theatre, I love to swim and go to gym. I also enjoy reading, I enjoy foreign literature in Russian  (I don't know English well and have to use a translator service now) I teach myself many things, and lately I have been trying to teach myself to speak English. It is very interesting for me, and I enjoy it although I don't think I'm very good... perhaps I need a tutor:-) I listen to all kinds of music, I like many kinds Pop, Rock, Classic  and I love to dance. I don't go to many clubs, but sometimes my friends and I get together and we all go dancing. I have a good sense of humor, after all if we can't have a little fun in our lives what good would that be? I have dreams about finding my soul mate, and sharing with him everything in my life. I would like to read of your dreams, and to know a little of what you want in life. Maybe, we have much in common, I think, and our dreams are the same. Well, I feel that I am going on and on, so perhaps I shall end for now. I look forward to your reply, I hope this letter finds you in good health, and that you stay warm and safe. With my best wishes, Tanya

Tatyana, Ukraine

It all started out by Tatyana emailing me from a service that I signed up for over 2 years ago and completely forgot about. Here is the first message that she sent me, which matches up quite well to those on page #110 dated July 2002:  Tatyana121 wrote:


" hello :) my name Tatyana. i like you profile and you photo nice. are you still look for partner? i live ukraine. i would love come US meet nice man. i prefer mature man so hope you not mind age difference. i more like man with more life experience. i 25 but very mature my age. i not like past experience from more young man. too many play game. i seek serious relation and want meet partner in real, not only pen pal. so if interest me, please reply and i send you photo and reply. Tatyana, "

I wrote back to here in the following message:

Hello Tatyana, Thank you for the pictures, you are a very beautiful woman.  Where you live does not bother me. I was just curious about where in the Ukraine you reside. It always interests me about where people live and the culture of different places. For me, I live in Colorado, just a couple of miles from the mountains. The season here is turning to fall and it makes the mountains very beautiful this time of year. It is still warm enough yet that I can enjoy a good outing to the mountains. Thus it is important to me that no matter where you are that you make the most of your surroundings and to enjoy them for what they have to offer. It is a wonderful dream that you have to meet the person of your dreams via the Internet. I have to admire your sense of adventure in moving to another country possibly for the right person. That is something that would scare me to death because of the new environment and my family so far away and not knowing very many people there, although I did it when I moved to Colorado.  I have to agree with you about looking into someone's eyes and knowing what is in their heart. The eyes are truly the windows to someone's soul and plus you can tell a lot about a person from just looking into their eyes. Have a wonderful day. Guy 

Then she replies:

Hello Guy! :) thank you for you reply :) i live Ukraine. i hope this ok. i very happy you reply me. :)) yes i prefer mature man because they wise and more serious about life and family. this important to me.  I speak and write English pretty good, but not perfect.

Yulya/Tatyana Lebedeva

Hi, I was browsing through your website and couldn't believe that I saw "Yulya" on the scam list. My name is Tim from New Jersey, US and I met Yulya when I was on She contacted me with this email: wrote:

If you to hear me and to understand me that you can write to me on mine e-mail: In my turn I shall try be the offer, loving, devoted , responsible woman. Click the following link to view the sender's profile:


After a few emails, we got along very well, and I really liked her. I became suspicious when after only a few emails she kept telling me how she loved me, and how she wanted to go to bed with me REAL BADLY. Then, she wanted me to send her money for a visa. Supposedly, she had an "uncle" who worked at an airport who could have gotten her a ticket to America. I think she wanted $300 via Western Union. I stopped emailing her after that because I knew something was wrong, and she (thank God) never responded. Here was the email before the visa request (I deleted the visa message; actually, all of these are from the messages I sent, the originals in the inbox were deleted): 

Greetings my love Tim . I did not fly to Vladivostok, but tomorrow I shall try to call in the American embassy and to learn (find out) about cost of the visa. Still I shall call mine to the uncle which works at the international airport in Vladivostok, it (he) the pilot and it (he) can learn (find out) how many there is a ticket aboard the plane. I try to learn (find out) as much as possible about that how to arrive (fly) to you and to meet you, I do not have  not enough patience to wait for this light moment in our life, I want to meet you more soon to jump to you on a neck, to kiss on the mouth you in, to look to you in eyes and to tell you I LOVE YOU!!!!!!! When you far I feel lonely, you are necessary for me. Ideas about our fast meeting heat to me soul, they support me when at me bad mood, and do (make) me happy. My girlfriends too have noticed that I began to look happier and cheerful, they speak that too would like to leave for America, but they already have which boys they like. I am happy that I have you.I have written a poem for you:

We'll take a walk together
near the ocean shore,
and I'll kiss your naked body
as you cry with tears of joy...
While I hold you close to me
and keep you from the cold,
we'll whispher to each other
little secrets left untold...
Your busom so inviting
as I beg for your embrace,
it's warmth is so exciting
while tears of pleasure run my face...
And as you lay upon me
I can look into your eyes,
like a gateway into heaven
as the moon begins to rise...
We make love to each other
like the world will never end,
we passionately kiss one another
while time just seems to bend...
I love you so so so so much!!!!!!
And I want you!!!!

I hope it to you it is pleasant, I have enclosed all love to you these lines. My love boils as a volcano woken by god Eros, she it tries to escape outside, but does not find an exit in absence of you. I wait for our meeting, as the young schoolgirl of the first appointment in life. I think that I am similar on Juliette which waits for a meeting with beloved. But I hope that at us with you all Will be at all so is sad as at them. Your love Yulya.
