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.

Denis Demidov (Cheboksary, Russia)

My name is Daniel, and I am a single gay man in the USA. I received the first email from Denis Demidov on Tuesday, July 16, 2002. He found my profile on "gay.com", a gay dating Internet website. He stated that he was gay and wanted to find true love in the USA because he could not reveal his sexuality in Russia. I responded as a person interested in making new friends, but did not show any interest in love (this response email was lost). We started emailing each other in a friendly way, but his emails soon turned to love. He sent me a picture and I found him to be very attractive. His words were sweet and sounded believable, and soon I started falling in love with him as well. 

After a month, he stated he would like to visit me and was working to save enough money for airfare. Soon he asked me to help and I sent him $200 and told him he would have to wait to visit me. His next email stated that he was in Moscow to get his visa and tickets and needed more money. I told him I couldn't send more money yet and that he should wait until September. Also, I had a roommate who was moving out in September. He agreed, and we continued to correspond for the next month. In September, I sent him another $350 to help with the tickets and told him to wait until October 15 to travel. He agreed.

In October, he told me he was in Moscow and had his tickets. He said he needed another $500 to get his visa to prove he had spending money, but would return it to me when he arrived. I sent another $500. The next day he told me he would have to go into the Army unless he could bribe a doctor into falsifying his medical records, and that $1000 was the cheapest doctor he could find. I sent him another $1000, bringing the total to $2050.

That's essentially the last I heard from him. He did not arrive, or email me back. Here are a few of the emails I received from him. 

Early Emails:

Elena (Tyumen, Russia)

I am a single American man who did not give this women any money thanks to womenrussia.com I saw her profile out there and knew she was a scam artist. So here is her letter and photo. She wrote the same letter to several other men. She justs wants your money. DS.

Letter:

Hello, my friend. I was very glad that you answered me. I would like to find out more about you very much. I live in Tyumen, in the north of Russia. I do not know how much is it  far from Moscow, but I think, it is about 1200 km. There are approximately 400,000 inhabitants in my city. I'm very cheerful person. I want to find a man of my life with whom I would spend the rest of my life. I do not want to make a mistake in my choice and I wish to know as much as it is possible about my future friend. My schedule is very severe. I live with the mum now. She is a very good person. I've said to my mother today that a person from USA had  answered me. She was pleasantly surprised. But she does not trust in the success of Internet relations between couples. My mother is very far from all this things. I cannot make promises that the future may bind us, but I wish to help you to study more about me. I seldom travelled far, and never was in other country. But I dream to visit on places of ancient civilizations. I have never been married. I do not have children. As you probably  already had noted I'm 27 years and my birthday will be absolutely soon in November 29, and it will be  28 and I would like to find a companion of my life. I was bad to perceive the computer but I learn  now. I work as a junior book-keeper. On weekends and holidays I work as a tutor of mathematics for children from secondary schools.Basically there are children from 7 to16 years. However there are summer vacations now and I work only in the office. I miss my pupils very much. I have university education in economy. My favorite food is Pelmeni. Pelmeni is a simple Russian dish, which is made of paste and meat. It is very tasty. I know many receipts of good meal. I like roses among the flowers. Usually I go to our office to write you letters. There is an Internet connection  Sometimes I may go to an Internet Cafe. But I cannot allow myself use of Internet Cafe very often. Here  it is still expensive for us.  I like to listen to music in the free time. I listen different  compositions depending on mood. I have never been married and I want to create good family. Probably we  will become good friends or even more, if we are very successful. Probably as it is the same with you my private life is too limited by the absence of free time. Even my weekends sometimes are filled with the work. Sometimes also I'm asked to displace other bookkeepers, so that I had no a lot of time for my own pleasure this year. I'm not complaining. I believe that the time will award me  and I feel that I shall have a greater control of my private life thereafter. I hope to find the second half of my life and to share with him love and everything. I was not successful enough before to find one for me. I wish to find a self-confident and kind man. I know that it will be a hard work, but I will move to this purpose. I shall try to form the strong bonds of confidence and communication with you and to be the good mother of our future children. I hope that your purposes will be similar. I would like to know your thoughts  about your future. I hope that you have listened me with the interest and it will be the beginning to help you to know me a bit better. I will be waiting for your answer. Bye , Your friend Elena

Lidiya Kurutkina (Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine)

Hi there. I dont wish to have my complete story up as I wish to remain anonymous. Just to inform you that I sent 350$ to Lidiya Kurutkina and of course just realised that she is a scammer. Lost my money. 

I wish to puruse this girl. Is there any way I can determine her true address in Ukraine. Kurutkina MUST be her surname as it appears in the passport OTHERWISE Western Union would not hand out the money. So there must be a govt agency that keeps records of peoples addresses. All I need is her true address. How can I get this? 

Below are some letters from her.

Hi <Anonymous>! Thank you for your call ,it was very pleasant to talk to you too. You know I told my mother that I've been speaking to you on the phone & that I'm so happy now. She told me that I seem to fly like an angel after your call! I've already found out that the price for the flyticket to Prague is 250$,and for my international passport - 100$.The agency can make me it within a week,but if we'll decide to meet in the end of September,then I'll reserve my ticket for that date. Sorry ,but I cannot travel by train as I had bad experience going by it last time ,I was then 18 y.o.I'll tell you about it when we'll meet ,,, I need 350$ to come to Prague,as for the way of sending money, I've asked in the agency about it & they told me that the safest,quickest & most convinient way of transferring money is by Western Union to Ukraine, Dnepropetrovsk for Lida Kurutkina. So <Anonymous> that is I can to do about my coming to Prague, Yesterday I bought a beautifull boquet of red-blooded roses from you! They smells wonderfull & remembers me about you every time I look at it! Though I think about you 24 hours a day!!!  Ok,,,I'd better now finish my letter to you darling,,,and be waiting for your message ,,,Kiss you 1000 times ,,, Lida 

I'm happy to hear you!!!! 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. I consider all good relationships start as good friends, 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. YOU ASK ME WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR IN A MAN...IT IS DIFFICULT TO SAY...THE MAIN CONDITION OF MINE IS TO LOVE AND TO BE LOVED. I WANT MY PARTNER TO BE MY HUSBAND, MY PASSIONATE LOVER, MY FRIEND WHOM I CAN SHARE MY INNERMOST THOUGHTS AND DESIRES. I WANT HIM TO BE MY SOULMATE, TO UNDERSTAND MY FROM THE FIRST GLANCE AND MOVEMENT, TO BE THE TWO PARTS OF ONE INDIVISIBLE WHOLE. I VALUE RELIABILITY AND SINCERITY. REAL MAN MUST BE RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS DEEDS AND WORDS. IN THIS CASE I WILL BE WILLING TO CREATE A FAMILY AND TO HAVE CHILDREN. MAY BE I AM TOO DEMANDING BUT I AM WILLING TO DO EVERYTHING FOR MY FAMILY AND TO CORRESPOND TO HIGH STANDARDS. My dream is to visit USA & Australia some day!! 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,Lida


Masha Poprygina (Lugansk, Ukraine) 

I am a 30+ male living and working in Canada. I decided to write to Masha through her email: honeybunny@diana.lg.ua. The first letter she sent me blew me away with her use of the English language. Here it is:

Letters:

I am 19 years old, I was born April 27th, 1982. At a present time I'm a student. I have one more year to go and then I will receive a diploma of a commersant of exterior trade. Not actually very creative occupation, but this is the best I can get for now, and I do think that education is very important. I really don't know yet what I would like to do in life. I know I should by now, but there are so many things I'm interested in, and there are so few chances to find a job which is paid, not even speaking of well-paid, but paid at all. So it would be basically a waste of money: to pay for education and then sell something in a street market like almost half of the adult population does. It's not that I'm overpragmatic or obsessed with money. I'm just old enough to understand that whether we want it or not, we become realists.. People are too pragmatic nowdays. I can't really blame them but sometimes I even get disappointed. No one appreciates each other, no one is interested in personality. People look at you, they judge you by your appearance, by your income, by how many VIPs you know. That's disgusting, moreover, it's really sad. In my country public opinion is still a very strong power. Of course it's not what it used to be a few decades ago, but still people are brought up and taught to constantly look back in whatever they do and consider what others might say or think. As for me, I can't say that I'm that independant not to care. There is just a narrow circle of people whose opinion matters to me, whose advices I take from time to time, and the rest - no way! It's my life and my decisions. If you want to win my heart, be decisive, inventive and humorous. My poor heart would have no chances if you are also intelligent. I love dancing and reading, socializing and writing, such a complex creature! But that wouldn't scare a real man away, right? :) As for my family I have an older sister. She is the most lovely and beautiful girl alive. This is it for now, hope to learn a lot about you from your next letter. Waiting with impatience, Masha

I thought to myself that there had to be something going on. I sent her an email from a different email address. Yes, it's true! She replied to my other email address with EXACTLY the same letter. Although I was suspicious, I decided to play along. I sent her another letter asking her if she was writing to anyone else. She said no. That was interesting too, as by now I was writing to her from three different email addresses. The letters were all exactly the same with the only difference being the opening statement. By the fourth letter the request for money came along. 

I feel very uncomfortable going to write you this, and if you decide to never write to me again, I will understand, I promise. You see, when I came to the Agency of translating and sending letters attracted by the number of happy meetings and even marriages that it has arranged, I didn't realize that it would be so expensive. The thing is that I can't afford it, and if you don't help to pay for our correspondence, we won't be able to stay in touch. I am really sorry that it should have come to this, but it's the problem of the kind, that I can't take care of it myself. Please, don't be mad, and reply no matter what your decision is. I will understand. Yours truly, Masha.
 

This email was followed one minute later by an email from the 'Agency': 

You are corresponding with our client, Masha Poprygina.She tried to pay for your correspondence herself, but so far she has debts.She promised to pay till the end of the week, hoping for your support. We are sending you a price list for 26.09.2002: To translate, to type and send a letter to you - $7. To translate, to type and to print out your reply - $7 To scan a picture - $3. 20 letters - $140. If you pay $200 at once, each letter will cost only $5 and a free photo. Please, effect the payment in the name of Oksana Vyazmina, Western Union, Lugansk, Ukraine and notify us of the control code of the payment. With the best regards, Miss Oksana Vyazmina, Accountant Manager. 

I remembered seeing something about the Diana Agency, and when I saw the email address: agency@diana.lg.ua I pretty much knew the scam was on!

There was even a medical emergency that popped up, with a hint that the medical bills would be too much to pay: 
I was busy with my studies and also every day I have a headache. At first I thought that it was usual headache but in some days I understood that it may be very serious so I decided to go to the hospital and I was right it was inner cranium pression. So I have to be cured. Tomorrow I will be in the hospital but I will sleep at home, so I can write to you from time to time. You know I'm afraid to go there but I understand that I shold do this in order to be healthy. But the medicaments are so expensive and I don't know if my family have money for my health and for food and for other social services. Well tomorrow I'll learn about that. Thank you for listening to me. This is the important reason for people to understand and to support each other. I will tell you everything about it when I recover because I can't stop thinking about my illness, it may be very serious as doctors says. But I hope I'll recover very soon.


All the other email addresses got a similar letter from the agency, each after the fourth correspondence. 

Here are two pictures of her for your file <<01.jpg>> <<02.jpg>> 
Just so you know, I never sent any money, but I did request for her to send me a picture of herself by regular (snail) mail. That is where this all stands right now! Cheers, Jim


Natalia Chumeikina (Marposad, Russia)

Gentelmen, I am a 40 yo male from America. Not to long ago, I was contacted by Natalia who found me on the Cupid USA website. She is listed as Oksana with profile number 238659. She just asked me for plane ticket and visa money to be wired to her via Western Union after only a few short weeks. She claims to live with her mother, has no phone at her home and cannot be reached where she works. Thanks to you and the black list, I saw this one coming. Her letters appeared to be much like a form letter, so I would guess that I'm not the only one she is in contact with at this time. Hope this helps anyone out there. Harpo

Her email addy is: chunat@pochtamt.ru

Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.


Olga Kazanceva (Novosibirsk, Russia)

Hello, My name is Doug. I am 45 years old, divorced white American male, with no children. I am a marketing manager with a major telecommunications company.

Within 2 weeks after completing a profile with Absolute Agency I received an e-mail from Olga Kazanceva. My story is like most others. Within 2 weeks I was her "love". By the 10th e-mail she was asking me to send her money for a B-2 tourist visa to come to America. I checked with the US embassy, which is where I learned of possible money scams. After gaining this information I decided to send a letter to her saying I could not send the money for a while due to a financial problem. That was the last I heard from her. I was very fortunate that I did not send the money. I was ready to. I would have sent the airfare too.   

The letters:

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 she 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 tries to escape outside, but does not find an output in absence of you. I wait for our meeting, as young the schoolgirl of the first appointment in life. I think that I am similar on ????????, Which waits for a meeting with beloved. But I hope that at us with you all will be at all so it is sad as at them. Your love Olga.

Tatiana Koulikova (Murmansk, Russia)

Hello, I am 52 frenchman, living in Paris as IT consultant. I wanted to get acquainted with a woman from the east and I had an ad inserted in various eastern newspapers, through a french magazine, J'annonce I got letters from many ladies and I decided to answer one positively who gave her emil adress.  These are the mails I got from her and some of my answers..

Letters:

Hello my dear Christian!!! Only today I have received your letter on electronic mail and was very happy!!! I hope that I answer on your letter not too late as I had no any access in the Internet about today and could not know that you have written to me. Now I can regularly use the Internet at my work, so I very much hope to receive news from you. I all this time thought of you and waited your answer and now I am very happy. It was very interesting to read about you, your life and your plans. From your letter I think what you are man what I was looking for. I like you very much! I am very glad what you are interesting in me and want continue our  correspondens. I am too very interesting in our relationship. I like your letters very much and I think from your letters what you are very interesting, kind, honest, intelligent and clever man. I very need to have man like you. Long time I was looking for man for create family, but I was unluky in this case. But I still have small hope to find man for make happy family together. I think that you are the man that I am looking for. And I hope I am the woman that you need. I like you from your letter and in your letter I saw your good sole and I think what it is most important for me. I think what love, respect and understanding are more important things between people in family life.I really very want to create happy family. I very happy what you want invite me to come visit you! I very want to meet with you, and I hope you will invite me visit you very soon. I will have my holidays soon, from the end of May. So we can meet in May or June if you can! I will be very happy to meet you and to see France together with you. I think we will have very good time together and will be very happy! I will do my best for you. What do you think about our happy meet with you? very want to meet with you. Now I sometimes imagine our meet with you. Our romantics evenings, walk together, our talking about life, love... our romantics suppers by the candle light. we will look into our eyes and understand each other even without words.  Yes, of course to have correspondense long time is good, but i think what some days spend together will show more about each other than long years correspondens. Then more we like one another and our opinions is the same. Now we must to new how we will fill ourself together. I can write about myself a lot and long but I think what better you will know me when we will meet. I think what we must not put off our meet. It is my opinion. What is your? I will be waiting your answer.  I am very waiting for your ansver! I send to you my another photo. And waiting for your. Bye-bye! Your Tatiana.

Dear Christian!!! I received your letter and was very very happy!!! Thank you very much!!! I so am happy that we have found each other!!! You the man of my dream. I dreamed of such as you all my life and at last I have found you. I think of you constantly and I dream of our meeting. Those days when we shall be together will be happiest in my life. And I shall do all that you were happy with me. I very want come to you during my holidays. I was thinking about it very much. I think that it will not be by a problem if you will work, because all evenings, night and days off will be only ours, my dear Christian! When you will be at work I shall do home work.. To tidy up, to wash, to clean and certainly to prepare for you fantastic supper and to cover on a table, and when you will be back home I joyful shall meet you and we shall have supper together and to enjoy each other. So do not worry that you will work. Write to me that you think of our meeting in June. If it not possible for you at all I will try to change my holidays, but I afraid it will be difficult to do. I did ask in travel agency about visa to France. Thay sayd what to get tourist visa is very easy, so I can come to you with tourist visa. I very much want to meet you so soon as it probably. I want to be near to you. I think of you constantly!!! I shall be the happiest girl in the world when I will meet with you!!! You are the man of my dream!!! Many kisses!!! With love, your Tatiana.

The she asked for money to pay her ticket and visa from a travel agency : 400$. I answered back that I would pay the agency directly with my credit card and not send money to her. I have already been scammed by a russian girl. She was disappointed but gave me some agnecies adresses to purchase her ticket.

Hello my dear Christian!!! I have received your message and was very happy. I was in travel agency and spoke with them about that that you want to pay my trip directly by him. They have told that they hear it first time. Usually they receive cash and are not engaged in remittances. They have told that usually man sends money to the woman and she makes out itself. I have told that you want silf to pay to agency. Whether then they have told that probably you do not trust me and began to ask me I saw you earlier and why you can not personally send me money. I was much not became pleasant to me. As they have thought that you do not trust me. I came back home and I was speaking with my mother. And she too speak what it seemed that you do not trust me. I do not understand that you are afraid. It I should have large fears. You see I am going in the country, unfamiliar to me, to the man unfamiliar to me. I heard very many bad histories about the foreign men, as it is bad they act with Russian, without the rights in their country by the girl. They take away all documents and force of the beautiful girl to work the prostitutes and very badly address with them. So my opinion, that in the given situation should be afraid and not trusted by(with) I instead of you. I am young girl also have decided to take risk, I have trusted in you!!! I very much have liked to me the truth also I think that you should trust me. I hope that we can meet during my holiday. I hope to hear from you good news. With love, your Tatiana.

So I explained her how I have been scammed a year ago and therefore I would not send money directly to her.

Hello my dear Christian! I have received your message. I very much regret that in your life such happened, but I want to tell you that not all girl identical and in the world there are very many honour and decent(considerable) girl to what I treat. I not against now that you made out my trip through a travel company. I agree with you. I hope that you will trust me same as I to you. I inform you telephones, the faxes and e-mails of the address of travel companies which are engaged in preparation of tourist trips in France. I have thought that will be much cheaper if I shall come to you by the bus. Contact to one of these agency and you can begin to prepare my travel on middle of June or later. You can communicate with the following agency in Moscow. 1. "Evroturtrans" E-mail ett@ett.ru Tel. (095)238-4639 T\Fax (095)238-7052  2."Roza-v'' E-mail roza_vetrov@smtp.ru , greenmar@unet.ru www.roza-v.ru tel. (095)202-2738 (095)291-9779  3. "Enklav" www.enclav.ru info@enclav.ru enclav@enclav.ru Tel\Fax (095) 911-61-20 

I regret that you can not phone to me, but mine phone not function as in my street is broucen a telephone cable. Therefore in our house all people can not use the telephone. I do not know when it will repare, at us have told that repair the very expensive and urban budget can not give out such money to repair cable. I very much hope that it will repare soon. I inform you my complete address. It is Koulikova Tatiana Prospekt Lenina 81 - 24, 183038, Murmansk, Russia. I have written to you my address at post office because in my entrance the letters boxes are broken and the letter can steal, therefore we receive our mail by post office. I have received your copy of the passport. A thank to you huge. But I and without it trusted you. I very much belived and sincere woman and I believe in human kindness, though in this world there is a lot of evil. You can communicate with the following agencys in Moscow and inform me so soon as possible! I very waiting for your news! And I hope for our meet!!! With love, your Tatiana. 

Then I started looking for an agency which could take care of ticket and visa in Moscow or St Petersburg. I finally found one and had all the information for her trip. She had to travel in Moscow and deal with the agency which agreed to be paid directly by me. Apparently everything was going right. Then I got the following mail 

Hello my love Chris!!! I have received your message and your photo. I am very happy!!! Me to like your body very much. You are very beautiful. I very much want to sleep with you at the night, I want to touch your body!!! I want as soon as possible to go to Moscow and to begin to prepare mine travel. I today went to buy the tickets up to Moscow on a train, but was very much surprised when me have told what there not tickets for 2 months forward. As in the summer all people want to leave for holiday from north on the south, and we have only 1 train up to Moscow, so the people stand in turn and can buy the tickets only for 2 months forward. I have gone to know about the ticket for the plane and me have told that is the tickets for any day. The ticket costs 100 $. I was very much afflicted. I have no such money. I can not itself pay my ticket. I do not know that to me to do. I am very much upset. I only can hope for you. I very much hope for your help. Whether write me, can you to send me money to the ticket up to Moscow. I have a few money to live in Moscow and to go on buses and metro and to have meal, but I have no money aboard the plane. I very much hope for you. I want to meet you faster. I wait for news from you. Love and kisses from your Tatiana. 

Again asking money. So I decided to ask Pulko travel in Paris If I could purchase a ticket in Paris and have it delivered to her in Murmansk. That was possible. So I told her about it and asked her to make up her mind about the date she wanted to leave. I have not heard of her nor read from her since in spite of several mails I sent her. Obviously, she was expecting to draw money from me and since Idid not give in, whatever argument she put forward, she dropped out. Her name and adress are : Koulikova Tatiana Prospekt Lenina 81 - 24, 183038, Murmansk, Russia.  I send you also some photos I got from her
