Hi, My I'm a 38 year old white male from Ohio, Anna sent me an e-mail through yahoo. I had an ad placed there. Everything was fine then she started asking for money for a visa. Something did not click in my spirit. Thank God. I was about to send the money and came across this site looking for regs on visa's. I happened to see her pick. She goes under Diana and Anna. I have pics and the letters if you are interested. The letters are almost identical as some of the ones posted. Thank you so much for your site. It saved me a lot of heartache and money. I would have paid anything to get her to me. Thanks to you and all of your staff.

Ekaterina Bulatova

I am writing to ask you to reconsider having Ms. Ekaterina Bulatova listed on your blacklist, as it was updated on 2/5/03. 

I, too, have been in contact with Ms. Bulatova, and she seems to be quite honest and forward. Yes, she did ask me for the $397, but when I explained to her that the visa process has to be started here with INS, she withdrew  the request, and even sent a copy of her passport. I can't think of too  many criminals who would send a copy of a government issued ID!

Also, it seems that "Ricardo" didn't email you with the whole story. To put  it quite frankly, he was sending her what amounted to porn. When she told  him what he could do with his "photos", he reported her to your site as a  scammer. If you have any questions about my contact with Ms. Bulatova, feel free to  write. Sincerely, Patrick L. Starkey

Elena Filipova (Chelyabinsk, Russia)

I am 37 and recently single I was contacted through my ad on Yahoo Personals.

Her screen name was daisywheel_2002. When I requested her profile I received a unique blank screen. Her letters included some personal responses but she was hesitant to provide her physical address or phone. I received a brief 15 second phone call from her. 

Her letters match that of several of your profiles. Request was made for support in visa and travel expenses for her suddenly pending vacation. 

Her first letter:

Hi. My name Elena. I am tired from loneliness and have decided to write to you. I search the satellite of the life for long relations. Possible having found out about each other more we can join. Your profile has liked me. For this reason I have decided to write to you. I shall start to tell about myself. I like to laugh. I love cinema, i like to listen to good music and to dance, go to the beach, or just spend time with a loved one. I'm looking for a serious relationship, so please don't reply, if you aren't serious as well. I want to find kind and reliable partner in life. With him I am ready to share all pleasures and misfortunes. Together with him we shall celebrate holidays - birthdays, Christmas and new year. We shall be pleased to arrival of spring. We shall enjoy life and to believe in the best. I believe sometime I to find him. The god will help me. It will be very pleasant for me, if you write to me. I with the big pleasure shall answer your letter. You can reach me at: lily@vyhino. net and I will send you my picture. Earlier I did not use dating service, therefore I bring to you my apologies if I have made not so good. I Hope to speak with you soon, Elena. 

Thank you for your work.

Lada aka Faluskina Maria (Kostroma, Russia)

I was also contacted as was the person on your scam site through a Yahoo personal. After a couple weeks she was asking for $300 FOR A VISA..I did not send it and never heard from her again. she now uses the e-mail vlared@ and below is a copy of her e-mail and attached are other pictures she has sent 


I want to tell you very serious thing. Rick, I have done some research for coming to you. And I have good results. I talked with my friend about it. Her husband works as a lawyer in travel agency. His company helps people to solve all questions about travels, organized tours and immigration. They also make all papers and passport required for travels. I got his professional advice about my wish to come to you.  He said that I would need visa and passport to come to you. His company can make all these papers in two weeks. This company is connected with American Embassy in Moscow. That's why they work so quickly.  I asked what I would need to do and he told me about all stages in this process. At first I need to apply for visa in this company. They will make an inquiry into embassy in Moscow. Usually it takes about two days. After they will receive authorization for my visa I will need to contract for their service. Then they will start their work. I will get visa, all papers and passport in two weeks. Then I can get ticket for a plane and fly to you.  

This service costs 250 USD. I know this is a lot, but it is fast and reliable.  The lawyer said I can try to get visa by myself but it will take more time, about 8-12 months. I will need to come to Moscow and apply for visa. The pay is about 90 USD. Then I will need to come there some times to sign different papers and wait. You see it could take more time, money and nerve finally.   What do you think of this occasion? I think it is great chance for us to meet.  There is a reason we must hurry with it. This company can't issue visas constantly. They have limited number of visas they can give in a year. It is limited by Embassy. In the begining of this year they took this number. The lawyer said that it is not large. Usually they give visas 1 or 2 months in the year. You see we must hurry if we want to meet in this year.  I must say that I have already applied for visa. Don't you mind? Rick, I love you and I need to meet you in person. We must do it as soon as possible. I can't wait whole year. You know I haven't 250 USD. It makes me so sad. What can I do? I hate I have no this money. If I could pay for it I would do it without any doubts. I know we will be happy together. Please, help us to meet.   

As for visa's period of validity it works for 6 months. I can prolong it if I will need. And I also can marry you if we will decide to do it.  Rick, please, think of it. It is our fortune, we can't miss it. I will need to pay for visa in three days. If you want to meet me, please send money these days. Use western union. I have found western union agents here. BIN BANK SOVETSKAYA 92  KOSTROMA , 156000 RUSSIA phone: (7)(942)320512 It is the nearest bank to me. My data for transfer is Faluskina Maria 27 18 May 1 street Kostroma 156601 Russia

I will also need your data to receive transfer. - money transfer control number (MTCN) and exact sum - your full name and address (as it appears in transfer papers) - control question and answer (if you will use it) Write me this information in your email after you send money. My lawyer also said that you can send money on-line at if you have credit card.

I also asked him if you can send money directly to his company. He said it is impossible. They don't have any dollars' account in bank and accept dollars only in cash or roubles. This is a low here. Rick, I understand that it is maybe too fast, but we need it. We can meet and we must use this chance. I know it is much money but I can't get them here. I was trying to borrow this sum, but I couldn't. My friends don't have such sum. And other people are afraid that I can leave Russia and not be back and they will lose their money.  Rick, you see it will be the first step to our future. I must get visa at first. I understand that it may take some months to save money for ticket. I will try to find them here, at least part of them. But I can't find money for visa. I have very little time. Help me.  I do it, because I love you and I trust you. I believe in our future, I believe in you. Do you doubt in me? Can you trust me your life?  Write me. I feel very nervous about your answer. I love you. Your Lada. p.s. I am sorry if I seem pressing in this letter, I've just wanted to let you know how important it is for me. 

Maria Leufina (Chelyabinsk, Russia)

Here's yet another one........BEWARE! I have no idea where her profile is listed but she somewhere obtained my email address and wrote to me. She does not answer any questions she is asked and after the second letter she is already "in Love". I played along with her for two weeks and 7 letters at which point she asked for money. Her email address is Her real name is Maria Leufina. Her address: 20 Ivana Krilia Street Flat 1 Chelyabinsk, Russia 465000 I have attached her money request letter and her photo. Paul K. 


Hi my love Paul. I was very glad to receive a letter from you. When I read your letter, at me even have appeared on eyes teares of pleasure. I see that we are necessary each other. Not seldom I visit church, and I am asked for you and ours meeting. How you there without me? I here very miss you very much. You in ideas always with me. You show very strong interest to me it very pleasantly to feel. I began very much to think of us with you that waits for us ahead. Now you are, by the second man in this world which to me is necessary most of all. The first man is my mum. I very much hope for that that our meeting the speed future is held. I am very grateful to you that you trust me. Through the Internet it is as that not naturally, we should take each other in hands and look each other in eyes and speak about that as the world is perfect. At me very good mood. I want to know all. To me you are very important. When I began to correspond with you I had what that hope that at us with you all will be good. With each your letter I understood that I have found that man which to me is necessary. I as well as you want to see you believe to me very faster it it would be desirable. I want to embrace you caress. I consider what exactly creation of a spiritual emotional basis of the man and there is a purpose sense of family education. I want to you to tell one that my feelings and the words in relation to you always were sincerely and I always understood that we put a lot of trust, that our union would be when that real. Now I am sure on all 100 that I can to you to trust. And you that man which to me are necessary. When I read your letter I has seen in it your sincerity and fidelity to me. I have made of your letter for myself the large conclusion which it is possible to express in three words I LOVE YOU . Today I even felt so highly, at me all turned out so easily! , because my ideas were directed about you. I as knew when I think of you and you think of me and it warmed my soul and body. . But we should trust each other, without it we simply can not exist. Today when I went on a road home, I thought of that as much to me to admit to you about it. You see between us there should be a complete trust and we should know about each other all. You probably think that I such not modern, but I consider that first time I should have affinity with the favourite man. At present at me the large inclination to you, I do not know why but it is the truth. Sometimes such dreams dream me, that it is a shame to me to you to speak about it. This dream has dreamed me today at night. We have supper with you at you at home and then we go to you in sleeping and we begin to be engaged with you love. Excuse that I speak with you so frankly, but I think that you should know about me all. I would be happy to visit you is a limit of my desires. Can you send me  the necessary sum that I could buy tickets. It is necessary for me about 1380 more $. I have counted up all. Me does not suffice so much. If it is fair, I itself would like to pay tickets, but unfortunately it is expensive for me. Dear, your money are not necessary for me, I never asked how many you earn. It is not interesting to me. I love you not for your money!!! That money which I ask are simply necessary for me to be with you! Loved. I hope and I ask the god that you have wanted the same way as I. On it I shall finish the letter to you. For ever yours, Masha. P.S: this pic only for you my Paul.

Natalia Buravleva (Omsk, Russia)

Hello, I am Zephyr Rodrigues, 35 years old, Portuguese Goan by origin, British citizen and work as a computer network engineer. I have been dreading the day when I would have to do this. I too, like Steffen Essted Sorensen, who wrote the article on ' Buravleva Natilia', have been in contact with this woman since January 2002. I responded to her advert on the website. Later on in June last year she also had a advert on their sister site, . My last correspondence from her, or rather her friend Galina was on the 17/09/2002. Below is the letter from her:


Hello Zephyr. You are written by(with) the girlfriend Natalia"s. She asked me to write to you, as very much experiences because of you. Natasha lays in hospital. It is trouble has taken place in Moscow in July. Probably she will write to you in detail later. Natasha very much experiences, that could not arrive for meeting with you. And she is not sure, that can arrive to you to a near future. Please send your bank essential elements. Natasha asks me to list(transfer) you money back. Natasha very much experiences and does not want, that you should think, what is it deceit. You can send your essential elements on this address or address of an e-mail  I ask you to not take offence at her. At her now really complex(difficult) vital situation.  Yours faithfully to you, Galina. 

I still believed in her even then and told her not to worry about sending be back my money until she, Natalia was better. Needless to say I have never heard from her.  The signs were all there but I just walked right into it with my eyes wide open. Often a man answered the phone, but she convinced that in Omsk the exchanges were so bad that the call often went to a totally different apartment altogether. The said that she was going to visit England in the summer and needed help with the air fare. A reasonable request I thought and so I wired 650 pounds sterling via Western Union. The money was picked immediately and after that the correspondence go much less frequent. I began to suspect the worst and that's when I came across you wonderful site. I did check frequently for reports of her but nothing....until now.  I did chat with her on Messenger too a couple of times. She wanted me to send her more money saying that what I sent her would not cover the trip. But unlike Steffen I am not rolling in it and told her so. :) She then told me that she would raise the remainder herself and and inform me of her travel plans.If I had the money I am sure she would have taken me for two thousand dollars as well. It really is scary what men who believe they have met the most wonderful creature will do. :) I am now going to write to Natasha and tell her how very disappointed I am and to please give me my money back. Any bets? :) I also want everyone to know that my experience has not made me think ill of Russian women in general. We as individuals are all fallible. Yours faithfully, Zephyr PS: I have attached a photo of her which I quite like, that I hope you will add to her scam report. 


Her location and email: Putila at Designer's School in Ukraine, I am 27 year old male in Connecticut 

Original email from Yahoo Personals:

Dear dadoctur. I saw your personal add. You know you are very interesting person. Itll make me upset if it was only a joke. My name is Pavlo (it sounds like [ PAVLA] in English). But friends call me Pava. Im 23 years old. And Im from Ukraine, The former republic of USSR. I hope youll drop me a line and who knows I ll be waiting for your letter very much. I also have many pictures if you want to see. Sincerely yours. Pavlo. P.S. Please use my e-mail address. Here it is: 

Money (no specific amount) was requested ONCE at the end of the second email, I am expecting another reply from "her" probably asking again. To help in internet communications: computer rental, isp provider and email. She may jump to yahoo mail, or hotmail (like a fool I recommended them to her to cut back costs) Acknowledged message from Yahoo as spam, and gave a description, awaiting a reply. (sent it 5 minutes before this email) Thank goodness I found out about your site soon, no money was ever sent and correspondence was going on for less than 2 weeks, likes like he/she/they are using the same boilerplate email for lots of people. I was contacted through Yahoo Personals Initial emails and 2 photos are attached 

Dear Ben, thank you very much for your answer. And excuse me for my long time answer if it was so. I don?t have a computer and Internet connection. I?m really very glad you?ve written me back and I hope you?ll do it again.  Let me describe myself. My name is Pavlo, but my friends call me Pava. I?m 23 and I used to live in Krasnovo in Russia, but now I?m a student and study at Putila at Designer's School in Ukraine. So I may say that I live in Putila in Ukraine now. I don?t have any brothers or sisters, as for my parents they still live in the north of Russia they don?t live with me because my father have a job there, so here in Putila I?m alone. I have many friends like any student who lives in student?s hostel. But I haven?t a loving person. May be you think that I?m too young to think in such way, but I think you know what life means without love. And another point, to my opinion every person have to think about the future. Every person wants to love and to be loved but not everyone tells about it. As for me I want to try to find my second part in life through this dating system, create a loving family and have children. I think such words are not surprising you. I have never been abroad and honestly I want so much. I like to travel very much and I was mostly in every part of Ukraine. I?ll not type such typical phrases, as I love animals and nature and so on. I?m a common person and love good and interesting things like each of us.  You know, now you and I are trying our fate! And who knows, may be someday we?ll meet. Thank you again for your letter and hope it will not be the last one.  Sincerely yours. Pava.

Dear Ben. Thank you very much for the answer. I'm really happy to receive your letters. My mother made these pictures last summer in Zhitomir.  I have not many questions as you may think. I only want to know what a person are you, how strong can you love and can I believe you or not. To tell you the truth I like your letters, but what a person behind them? Here is everything going on without big changes:-) Studying my lessons and so on...The main subjects I study at the Academy are Philosophy, English, Arts, Design and Architecture of course and many different common subjects, which everyone study at any University. My major is flat?s and house?s design. I?ll graduate next year. My Academy will take part at an international student?s exchange program in late May and I?m going to take part there too, I very hope we?ll meet in spring:-)(if you don?t mind of course) I have never been abroad but sometimes I imagine that some day may be I'll travel somewhere far then my country border. I don't know if you lived in students hostel like me, but it's not the place I want to stay. Here is not very cold now,the weather is wonder ful, about -5*C it was snowing yesterday, but everyone feels that Spring is knocking the door:-) Mostly forgot, may be I'll not be able to speak with you through Internet for some months, but If you only know how I want to. The problem is that I don't have my own computer and Internet connection, so I have rent a computer and use a provider, but in our country it's very expensive. I have to pay them for each letter that comes from you and that I send you. Internet in our country is very new thing and every one who has it try to use it with his own rules. It?s very shame for me, I have to be honest with you, but my money comes to an end. Please only say if you can help me with money for our correspondence. Hope to have another letter from you. I?ll be waiting it very much.  Sincerely yours.  Pava.

As already I spoke to you earlier, I work as a waiter in the bar here in Voronezh City. It's a perfect and cosy bar. My job is very pleasant for me, people in our city are kind, and visitors of the cafe are not roughness to us, certainly there are cases when the visitors are not correct with us and spoil mood, but it happens very seldom. I'm very interested to learn about your work, Larry, and what do you do in free from work time? During our weekends, in my free time, we are with my girlfriends, also with Frank and Natasha sometime, go for a walk to the city, we like to sit in cafe too for a cup of tea. I like my girlfriends very much, especially my best girlfriend Natasha. She is as native sister for me! By the way I want to say to you that Natasha works as a waiter in our bar too. Also I want to say to you that Natasha and Frank are living in Voronezh City now. Natasha have visited Frank to Germany at last time, Frank asked Natasha to visit in Germany him after that when they have understood that they love each other. I remember, Natasha was so happy in this time. They lived together during two month in Germany. And then they have came to Russia, to Voronezh City too, simply, Natasha said to Frank that she have missed about her parents, and that she want to visit on some time her parents, and they came to Voronezh from Germany. They are very happy together, they love each other very much, I envy to Natasha and Frank slightly :) and also, of course, we meet with each other sometimes and spend a lot of time together. We are so good friends! Also I want to say to you that I have never been outside of Russia, I have never been in an other countries, but I would like to travel at once, it's so romantical, I think :) Well, Larry, I must to finish my e-mail to you, I hope that we will continue to correspond with each other and you will tell me much more about yourself, and I will try to tell about myself as more as possible in future e-mails. I want to ask you about more things, Larry, and I hope that you will understand my questions and will answer me for them. A great friend hello to you from my family, my friends Natasha and Frank too.

Hi dearest Larry! I have gotten your answer as usual, and I was so happy from your words again! Larry, I want to say to you that your messages became an important part of me and my life, your e-mails help me live, I don't have boring mood in general, but it there comes when is bad weather in the street when it's coldly. But when I receive your warm messages, I forget about bad mood at once, I have a smile on my face and magnificent mood from your e-mails. I can't without your messages now, Larry. You can see that I write to you so long inform e-mails about myself, because I want that we know about ourself very much. I thought that it's so imortant for us Larry, realy Larry? By the way today it's coldly on the street, but it's cloud wind too, I don't like this, it is around -15 degrees C. But I like summer very much! I like summer because in this season I have a vacation from my job in the start of August, it's so nice. I like to spend this vacation with my family and with my friends too. Basically, in vacation I like to go to camping too in the wood, which is situated around near Voronezh City. Larry, I hope that you know that our russian woods are so beautiful, I hope in America too. There are the pines and beautiful russian birches basically in our woods. Also through this wood proceeds the small river, this place is so real romanticism, believe me Larry! We are with my family, my dad, my mom, and my sisters pack a backpacks, we take a large tent, we take a necessary foodstuff, and we are together with my family go to camping. I like this very much, Larry. Especially, I like to be near this small river too, my dad like to fish very much, I'm not fisher :) But, once I have tried to fish, and I have catched a small carp too :) I was so surprised by this, and what about you? Do you like to fish? :) Also do you know, Larry, that the food which is prepared on a nature more better than the food in home? It's a fish soup basically. Also we eat fish canned food. It's the sprat in a tomato sauce. It's so tasty to eat on nature. In total, I like camping very much, Larry, and how you spend your vacation? Tell me, ok? It will be interesting for me. Dear Larry, also my friends in our bar are asking me about you very much all time :) I tell them that you are very good man, also I want to say to you that some my girlfriends envy me slightly because I found so good man as you by the Internet. But I don't address on their envy of any my attention. Also my collegues from my job asked me about that did you sent me any gifts. I answered them that it's not nessesary for me. The main gifts from you to me are your warm messages and you, Larry! Also if your remember, Larry, I said you in my last message about that it's not necessary to send me any parcels by the usual pochtamt services and any others Post Services. I have said to Natasha and Frank about larceny of postmails and others sendings about that some my friends said me. Frank was agree with me too that it willn't nessesary to send any things by the Post Services. The fact in that when Frank and Natasha have got acquainted, Frank decided to send to Natasha a nice gifts to Voronezh by any Federal Express Service. This gifts were a beautiful flowers and nice woman white dress for Natasha. When Frank sent it to Natasha, Natasha didn't receive this so nice gift from Frank. The gifts were lost by this Service for the not clear reasons. It was so pity for Frank, and, is especially for Natasha. She cried very much from this to a mountain. Frank wanted to submit to court on this Service, but Natasha reconvinced Frank to not submit to court on this Service. So this beautiful gifts was lost without a trace, Larry. From this my dear Larry, please, don't send me anything by the any Post Services, ok? I don't want that will happen as it was happen with Frank and Natasha. Also Natasha and Frank want that if we with you will be together, that we will visit them. Larry, they will leave Russia through some time, they will come to Frank's Native Land to Germany. Frank said to Natasha that he don't want to live in Russia, because he likes his native Germany more than Russia, Natahsa want to live in Germany too as she said me, also I will miss about them. Also they see that we have a good relation with you and they wish us that we will together soon and that I will come to you in USA, and we will live together as Natasha and Frank are living together.

Tatyana Opviso

This scam is currently alive and well at,where the name used is Tanya 007. You are then referred to a Tatyana Opviso account at hotmail where you get the letters already on the site with a few added pictures of familly and the famous dog Putts which I was to fall for this. If money is forwarded and she does call you many times ,for the Tender Hearts agency,she then will tell you that you must send boarding fare or they wont let her on the plane,but she will give it back upon arrival as it is only to insure that the girls do not turn to prostitution. While she is not convincing andthere are obvious flaws starting with listing Moscow and then writing from Kiev, we sometimes act like lemmings and push ourselves into the sea. I did. She even calls you when she has the money. Please if you have doubts follow your instincts and check closely or you could be out a lot of money and really feel like wanting to jump into the ocean.Thanks
