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.

I have contacted the site owners and advised them that she is scammer, but they have done nothing. Many thanks for your brillant site. Peter Yates

Marina Petrova (Ekaterinburg, Russia)

I am a single father of two living in Australia and one month ago I received an anonymous e-mail saying that she had seen my details on a Yahoo singles site, I belive that this has come from Adult Singles. I was susspicious immediately as within a day or so she had fell in love with me, then I was asked for money for a visa, only problem was that her English or her translator kept thinking that I live in America when on many occasions I had said I live in Australia. Then a week later says that she needs the US$ for an American visa. Haveing played along with it now for a few weeks, I am convinced this is a scam, I have sent no money but other please beware. I have heard so many stories.

Rings Marriage Agency (Lugansk, Ukraine)

This letter is destinated to all International Marriage and Dating Anti-Scam Web-sites, Interpol and any other International Investigation Services. Please forward it to anybody who should know its content to avoid them to be scammed. It will help to make autors of these frauds stopped and prosecuted! Hi! There is new information I just got about the real lady whose pictures are used to execute this scam. She's actually a known ukrainian model called Yuliya Ogolenko.

I was corresponding with whom I tought being this lady trough an agency called "Rings Marriage Agency" who I met trough Absolute Agency (an open door for scammers) Officially her name was Tatyana Zaitseva. After some very sweet letters I got some doubts and asked the agency about if they met her personnally on interview. They said they knew her very well and personnally. After repetitive asking, they gave me also 2 (fake) adresses of their agencies in Lugansk and Severodontesk. I advised them about another false profile on their site who is in fact Marina Kazantseva another ukrainian model. I had at this time seen her pictures on another site. They listed her under another name. After my insisting, they took this profile out from their website. 

On the site of the "Rings" agency, you can find no adress, no phone number or any other contact. The company is very evasive about anything possible to trace them, and full of false testimonials and lies about their creation supposely 4 years ago by an american Mr. Bernius. Finally, all this site looks to be set-up with full intentions to scam foreign men who simply have the hope to find an interesting and serious woman there in Ukraine. In spite of all proofs and contacts I made by now, I can't understand why the site of this scam agency "Rings" is still open and proceeding their games of cashing in money with pictures of girls who have no idea of what is going on. 

Anybody who needs more information or help with another case will be welcome to write me. Thanks for your attention!

Nadya (Kherson, Ukraine)

Natalya Zaykova (Astrakhan, Russia)

Hi, my name is Brian a 30 year old guy that had a profile posted on looking for someon in my local area. I was very suprised when I got an email from Natalya Zaykova ( claiming to be from Astrakhan. The orignal email came through the system but requested that I use the email above to continue talking with her. I wish I had the orignal few emails still but I only have the last several. Getting together with somebody from Russia was the last thing on my mind when I posted my profile but I figured what the heck I'll email back and see what happens. The first thing that made me suspicious was the pictures I was being sent. While the girl pictured was very pretty, Natalya claimed to be 28 years old and the picture didn't appear to fit that age, at least in my opinion. The pictures also looked like proffesional pictures, not something somebody who makes $50 a month could afford to do. After about 8 email exchanges she was "in love with me". I just couldn't buy into that. She claimed to have no phone, no money, etc. I kept playing along. I'm a detective by trade and I smelled a rat so I wanted to see if I was correct. I started doing some google searches and stumbled onto this website and went through the "blacklist" to see if anything matched up. As luck would have it, I found Natalya Vinogradova (Ivanovo, Russia) listed and found the letters in that listing to be an almost exact match. Natalya again used "I saw your structure" which I thought to be an odd, unique phrasing. Other letters match too. She wants to teach me how to waltz just like she did for BW. The walks through nature she described were almost exactly the same. It was spooky how similar they were. By this time I was up to about 19 emails between us and she'd yet to say anything about wanting money. I figured that would be the nail in the coffin if she did that so I kept playing along. As luck would have it, she asked for it today as described in the last letter. A scammer is revealed again and this time she or he (who knows) was busted long before they knew and did not get 1 red cent! Thanks BW for sending in your story. While I knew this was bogus, I never would have matched it up as a reapeat offender without you sending in your story. 


Letter 18

Hi my dear Brian!!! As always I am so excited to get a letter from you. * Everything is as usual in my life and nothing special happens. I have seen the movie "Pretty woman" yesterday. I am sure you have seen it too. I like this movie and I have seen it several times already. After it I went to sleep and I was dreaming about us. I believe that you are my second half and the destiny helped us to meet. It is our chance to be happy and we can't miss it. It would be unfair. I understand that we don't know each another for long time and we haven't met but I don't care. I just know what I feel inside and my heart tells me everything. I would never believe that I can fall in love with the person I have never met in the real life. But now I have experienced it and I believe in it. Everything could happen in this life. And there is nothing strange in it. I need to tell you one thing. It is really very important for me. But I need to know that you trust me. You shouldn't have any concerns about me. I don't deserve it. I have only serious intentions about you. Just write me that you trust me and I will be not scared to tell you this. I need to tell you this, because it is very hard to feel it inside and not be able to tell you. Please, dear tell me, that you trust me and that you don't think that I am weirdJ It is not so, I am just very sensitive and sensual person. And you mean everything for me in my life. I just can't imagine my life without you anymore. I will better die than lose you. My life will be empty without you, it will have no meaning. I will think about it tonight and will write you about my feelings tomorrow. Please, be honest with me and Inform me if you trust me. Take care,  honey. You are in my heart. Thousands of kisses. Yours forever. Natalya.

Letter 19

My dearest man in this world Brian! I thought much about us today. I can't keep it in myself any more. I need to tell you everything I feel inside. You are the dearest person in my life and I can't be apart from you. I know that it sounds strange for you. But even that I haven't met you in the real life, I know one thing for sure. Please, don't be scared. But I want to tell you that I love you, yes, I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love you and the thought about you makes me so happy. I want to be with you so much. I want to feel you with every part of my body, I want to feel the tender touch of your hands, to feel the smell of your body, just to know that I belong to you and that you are mine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am full of desire and I want you as a man, I want to be your wife, your friend, your soul mate, your lover, your dream. I understand now perfectly that you are the man of my dream. I was searching for you all my life and now I have found you and I am not going to lose you. We will be happy together, I will do everything for it. I am strong enough to overcome all the difficulties and hardships which are between us. There is no barrier which can stop me. My love will overcome all the difficulties on our way to each another. We will be together, believe me. I will cross the ocean just to be with you. I don't need anything else - I just want to see you, to look into your eyes, to kiss your lips, to touch your strong body. My love will be enough for two of us. Do you know the song of Bon Jove " Always". This song is about my feelings to you. I will love you, baby, always and it doesn't matter for me what will be in the future. I will love you, you are the air I breath, the reason for me to live. And there is no life for me without you. Please, don't hurt me and tell me that you understand me. Hope to hear from you very soon. Love you. Miss you badly. Yours forever Natalya.

Letter 20 (finally wants money)

Hi, honey Brian! It is amazing to get your letter again!!!!!!!!!!!!! In hands I to hold a gift for you, my love!I miss you badly, honey. I love you so much. I can't be apart from you, it is so hard. You are my life, I want to hug you so much, to feel your warmth, to look into your eyes, to feel myself happy and safe near you. I am sure everything will be Ok and the destiny will work for us and we will be happy together. I often think about us and try to imagine our life together. Sometimes I feel you so near and close to me. I even feel you on the distance. I feel when you are in a high spirit and when you are sad. I am happy when you are happy. I want to be with you so much and I though about the ways for us to be together. So I tried to do something for us and decided to go to the Embassy to check what I need to come to you. So, to come to your country I need to make some paper work and to get visa. It will take some time, of course, and to pick up many documents from my side. But I will do everything which depends from me. But there is one thing which upsets me very much. You see, I need to pay for getting visa. And you know that my salary is too small for it. I don't want to complain but you know that I have a difficult financial situation here. I have a great desire to come to you, to see you at last and only money separate us from each another. I love you so much, honey and I don't want to lose you. Nobody can help me with it. Of course, I could ask my Mom to help me but she doesn't have such money though she would like to help us. I am honest and sincere with you. I hope that you understand me and that you will do it for me. I already gave some papers to them and they made a file for me. All I need now is to pay them money. So it will be, $45 for visa and $30 for registration, also I need to pay for medical exams - it will be $50, $40 for the interview, and I need to get a foreign passport, it will cost for about $40 and for some another expenses I may have. So in general I will need for about $205. If you want to help me, my love I have found out that You have to send the money by Western Union. You need to send me your full name, address, amount of money and the control number. You need my full name and address, so here it is (Natalya Zaykova; Russia, Astrakhan, street Lenin 76, apartment 34). I could find such information, love mine. I really hope that you understand my situation. I want to see you very much but without your help I can't do it just because I don't have such money. Money is nothing but they help to overcome all the difficulties on our way to each another. Sorry, dear, if it upsets you. I just think that we need to trust each another and to share everything. Hope that you agree with me. Just imagine that in short time we could be together. And there is only one problem now which can be solved with your help, dear. I love you so much, you are the best in my life and our meeting could be the happiest event for us. Miss you badly honey and waiting impatiently for your soon reply. Yours forever Natalya.

Oksana Smirnova (Odessa, Ukraine)

Hi, I was contacted by this person over dating agency. After 2 letters she  wanted me to use that Metou dating agency and pay for the service, This  website is totally a scam in my opinion. I just ended up deleting all the  material I was sent from this person. Two days later I get another letter  asking me to pay for translation fees. Here is the letter and three pictures  was sent of this so called  woman. I definately will be supporting your balcklist. I am very happy I found it, and thank you!


Hello XXX, First of all thank you for a letter, I liked your message very much. I think you might wonder why I am seeking a love from such a far away place and outside of Ukraine. Well, I am 28, I have had love affairs but unfortunately either I  loved them and they did not love me or they loved me and I did not love them in return. So you can say that I have never been "in love" with a special man.  I ave  seen what works in a relationship and I have seen what does not work in  a relationship, and I am not willing to settle for anything less that pure  ove. I  am very honest in sharing this information with my partners so that if I am  not able to commit completely to a man,I want to break off our relationship out  of respect for his feelings so that he can get over me and not waste his time  with a relationship that is not leading to marriage. When I get close to someone  they become my best friend and such they deserve to know my honest intentions. Also I have to say, I am a one man woman. I do not believe in cheating at  all, it degrades the bond between a man and a woman and I believe that the strength of a relatinship is based in mutual respect so cheating is not compatible with this respect. I swear this is true.I would like to find a man such as you, a man to hold at night, a man who would feel safe in my arms, and to love me for all the good things that I have to offer as well as forgive me for the imperfections that make me unique. I am in fact looking for a man to whom I can devote all of my love and life energy towards. Can you imagine chopping vegatables and having a special person surprising you with a hug, or a soft kiss on your neck trying to distract you from your task? Or can you picture us awakened at night by the soft cry of our child? Can you imagine me softly sayinng you "love you" when you are sleeping? Well, why I seek out a husband out of Ukraine. Well, to be truthful, I am absolutely ready to get married, but I am a very sensetive woman and while I have been involved with several men in my life, I am also very honest and if I am not absolutely in love I will not continue in that relationship if that love component is missing. Well, the internet is a very convenient way to get to know a person without the distractions of a physical presence. I agree with you that there is not a substitute for a physical meeting. And I hope that we can meet in the near future, perhaps very soon? And we can see if we are compatible. Truly, I want to be married soon. Maybe, we can meet so that we can try a trial engagement if we find that the love component is there between us and get a chance to see if we are destined to be together. I am very sorry to tell you about that, but I know writing letters throught the internet is the fasties way to get to know each other and I am always very happy to get all of your letters and replay to you as soon as possible. I knew I would have to pay the money in order to correspondens with you, but I din't know it would take so much money. I am very sorry I came up with such a matters. But it is pretty expensive for me to pay for the letters and for the translations. I mean I can speak English a little bit, but that is not enough in order to express my feelings to you. The point of this is I would like very much for you to pay for our correspondence. I would really appreciate if you can help me with some money, and it would give me a chance to write you more often. Again I am sorry. Each time I send or get letter I pay about 5$ with translation for each one. You can send me some money via Western Union System on my name; Ukraine, 65000, Odessa st.Nikolaevskaya doroga 31A-13 Smirnova Oksana I will be waiting for your answer and will think of you as I always do. Kisses, Yours, Oksana


This girl in the black dress, pictured in the gazebo is still at it trying to scam men out of money, she now goes by the name Olenenok_999 -- I have been in email conversation as of 11-21-2002,, here is a recent pic 's thank God I checked your site when I became leary of her all of a sudden falling in love with me and wanting to bare my children at the 3rd email......

Oxana Ageeva (Tomsk, Russia)

Hello I am 40 year old male from Australia. I too was corresponding to Oxana Ageeva, for about 3 weeks. I sent her a letter via post mail and she acknowledged receipt of it. I never told her I was sending her a letter. She definitely received it because I sent two pictures with it. She told me she got letter and pictures . Her address is Russia, Tomsk, 634021 FRUNZE St., 118-14. Oxana Ageeva

Perhaps you could attach to this to the story or pass on to relevant authorities. I did not send her any money, but here is the letter which I think was leading to setting me up. The typical scenario !! Mother was sick and need Heart operation.  


My sweetheart, hello! Sorry I have not answered you earlier, but so much tings happened here. I did not want you to tell everything, but now I feel we are close to each other, I'm sure that your are my real friend and I'd like to tell you more about my mom if you don't mind. I was going to spend my week-ends with my friends but all last days my mom felt extremely bad. She had like a needle in her heart inside. She had a heart attack about 2 years ago, so I feel really nervous. Last night she felt really bad again, I run outdoor and called for the ambulance from the public telephone. And they came 3 hours later!!!!! I thought I would lose my mind while waiting for them. They came, gave her medicaments, examined her heart pressure and left telling we need to go through doctors on Monday. It seemed to me I've spent the worst night in my life. Jeff, I'm sorry for telling such bad news but i trust you and feel really close to you now. I'm so nervous, when she had a heart attack the doctors said there is no guarantee if she lives after if it will repeat. He told me me she needs an operation. They can put some kind of little electronic device in her heart to make her heart pressure stable. The main problem her heart pressure is not stable at all, and the medicines are weak in this situation. When her heart pressure is high she takes the medicines to make the pressure lower; when her pressure is low she takes the medicines to make it higher. But it's very dangerous, because what will happen if she'll take by mistake a medicine for high pressure when her pressure is already high enough? I'm so afraid that it can happen one day. My mom had agreed to do such operation, but she needs it as soon as possible. We could wait almost a year for 2/3 paid operation (we have partly free medecine help here) if her heart was not so weak. We applied for the operation in the Cardiological Hospital in Novosibirsk, but they said we should pay 14000 rubles !!!!! It's so so unfair! How don't they understand that it's impossible for the majority of people? And what, for example, a pensioner should do if he stayed all alone without relatives? It's such a big pain for me too, I fell myself so helpless because now I can do nothing for my beloved mom. Because of my mom, I think I had a nice childhood. I almost never felt like I have no father and others do. I've had lots of friends in kindergarden and in school... I spent all my time playing with them, doing homework. I was into gymnastics, ball-room dancing, always busy in organizing celebrations at school. I enjoyed long walks with my mom in the evenings, where I shared with her the discoveries I made about life. I always liked to be outside, enjoyed to go to the forest to ski etc. When I was a teenager I was really into music, listened much, went to discos, concerts, parties. My psychology was that we live only once and we should appreciate every happy moment of life. I think every age has it's good side and i think a person can always open a new chapter in life, and even if there are bad times after them there always be good times, happiness, love. I know my childhood was not spent in a good times for our country. The life was especially hard when we lived in the USSR isolated from all the world. I saw a lot of problems around me my mom had to solve every day. She always worked much to survive, to protect me all I need. She did not think about herself, I thought only of me. Firstly, I did not want to write you all of it, but I need to share with you my deep pain, I wish you were here with me to put my had over your strong shoulder. I'm crying now, but this letter is the most clear from all I ever wrote.  I'm not confused to ask for your some kind and warm words for me, I need your letters and attention very much now, I miss you a lot and hope you'll come soon.  Kiss you, Hug you, With Love, Oxana
