It was on you page 174 updates 23 April 2003 page 2. When she was so brazen to ask for so much money, I thought I would check it out! I am glad I did! Thank you so much, I hope this person is put behind bars and soon!  Thanks again, Les

Natalia Smorkalova

Natalia Smorkalova and Svetlana Lubimova appear to be the same person. They  both have the same address: Russia, 607635, Nuzhegorodskaia area,  Bogorodskii raion, Novinki, Centralnaya Street, 17-18 Natalia Smorkalova has three profiles listed on American Singles. com as of this day. The profile names are: Natashka439A, natkaE40D, and nnataly. I am a single American male age 45. I was contacted and started  corresponding with this lady about two weeks ago through American Singles  .com. Being a subscriber to the anti-scam guide, I checked the black list  but did not find her listed untill now. She has yet to give me her hard luck  story or ask for any money. Knowing what I do now, she will not get the  chance to do so. For those of you who have not subscribed to the anti-scam guide, it is well  worth the modest amount. It will save you lots of heart aches and money. This black list is an invaluable tool for anyone who is serious about  meeting women from the FSR (Former Soviet Union).

Elena Shelepoon

About six Russian women have contacted me through an on-line dating service in the last four months. At first I thought that a coworker had submitted my address to a Russian mail-order bride sight as a joke. Three of them were using such horrible English that I didn't even try to contact them, the other three I did. This morning, I received my 4th letter from Elena Shelepoon. In it, she mentioned a Russian word, Skosobochilasi, which I did a web search on the only sight that turned up was the blacklist sight. It was almost the exact same letter that I'd just received only it was addressed to Randy and was from Anastasia Smirnova (see for full contents). From other letters that Randy had posted, I found that Anastasia had the same occupation and parents as Elena. Going through the blacklist archives, I found that she was also named Natasha Kiseleva (see I have yet to reply to "Elena".

Also, while scrolling through the archives I saw several pictures of Tatyana. I never wrote to her lone enough to get her last name, but apparently she has several of them as well as different first names. Darya/Dasha Miheeva (, Ekaterina (, Elena Volohina (, Tatyana Solovyova Eremeevna (, and Tatyana Eremeevna Solovyova ( are all the same person. Unlike Elena, she does use fresh material from time to time, but the snowman story that Tatyana Solovyoka Eremeevna tells was also told to me. When Tatyana sent me a picture of her in her underwear I quit replying (that was moving a little too fast for the short amount of time we'd been writing and I really couldn't think of delicate way to call it quits); oddly enough, she never tried to contact me to see why haven't written to her.

Natallia Kisialevich is the only one that I corresponded with long enough for her to ask for money. I think I've found four other letters by her on the blacklist. Natalia/Natasha Abramova (, Nataly Khartman (, Natasha Litvinova (, and Aliona ( She is by far the most clever of the ones I've come across so far as writing original background stories for herself, and as you can see from those I've listed on the blacklist, different pitures. Nataly Khartman and Aliona gave themselves away by using the same story when they requested money. The other trait that gives her away is signing off using 'kissing you' or 'kisses to you' or other such phrases. It is also interesting that one of the women who I didn't respond to was named Natasha which seems to be one of ! her aliases; it makes me wonder how she would have handled it if I was e-mailing her under two different names.  Anyhow, when she asked for the money to get her visa, she didn't consider that I've dealt with enough student visas to start asking questions. Some of the suspected 9/11 hijackers were here on student visas, and the government is looking at them more closely so I thought it would be wise to see if her visa would allow her to leave the student group she said she was coming with in order to visit me. She kept insisting that all I needed to know was that it was a student visa (there are more than one type of student visa), and that the deadline was getting too close to waste time (to paraphrase, send me the money - NOW). I told her we were rushing things to quickly find another way to meet and she sent the following letter:


"Hello Will! You can't imagine how I am sad, I so planed to visit you. But it's the life. I am not angry with you...I all understand. It is simply a pity that we can't meet. I know that you are a nice man and I'd like to share all my life with you, but the distance interrupts us very much. In any case, know, that I want to see you happy. It's a pity that I can't be with you. But it was a real pleasure to talk to you. Now I feel like a small silly girl which built a lot of plans about the future in her head. I really dreamt too much... But now I fall to the earth. It's necessary to live in a real world and enjoy what is near by you. You are a wonderful man, but you are too far. It's nice that we correspond, but how long will we talk... ? I don't know what to tell you more right now. I need the time to think about everything. Bye. I kiss you. Natallia"

Still not suspecting it was a scam, I suggested that we meet somewhere in Europe. I had vacation time coming up, it would be cheaper for her, and we could make sure that all the travel papers were in order without rushing through. She never responded. It was then that I started suspecting that this one was a scam. 

What I learned from Natallia... I started checking up on some of the information that Natallia gave me. For the most part she kept things generic, but she left a few ways to check for potential scams. For one thing, she gave me her father's name and told me he was a history professor at a local university. I checked on-line for faculty lists of the universities in the Minsk area and couldn't find his name listed; I also did a general web search for his name. I checked with the university that her aunt worked at to see if their English language program was having tours to Detroit like she said they were. She told me what airline she'd be flying on, so I cheked their flight schedules for the dates she had listed. Also, use the U.S. heightened security as an excuse to ask them about their visas; if they are serious about wanting to meet you they'll get you as much information as possible. Other signs of potential scams: Some of these keep cropping up in the various letters that I've received and have read on the blacklist sight. A homelife that they can't live without but are ready to leave it to be with you. Do they say that their job means everything to them? Do they realize that they probably won't be qualified for a job in the same field if they come to the U.S.? Is their family everything to them? Do they realize that they'll have to leave their family behind? (Tatyana told me she was an only child and great stories about how she missed her mother when she died, but there was an elderly woman in the next apartment that filled the void). Do they act like you're already married but don't want to discuss marriage? (I told Natallia that we should consider things like her being separated from her family if we got married and she said that it was too early to consider such things, but still kept referring to me as her one and only, her soul mate, her love, as being in her dreams, etc.). There seems to be a tendency for them to be semi-professionals (teachers, medical assistants, etc.) who love their job. There's an emphasis on religious devotion without a lot of substance to it. They've told their friends and relatives about the correspondence and they are all very happy about it (though the parents were concerned for about five minutes at first). What can we do about it? For one thing, keep writing to them. Get their information, learn their patterns, and waste their time. Share it with as many men as possible. I don't have any pictures with me right now, but still have some on disk at home and will try to remember to bring them in to add to the archives. 

Kseniya Shamova (Kazan, Russia)

I'm a single white male, in the U.S..30 years old and self employed. I received an email from Kseniya through Matchclick, an internet dating service. I replied, and we started corresponding everyday for three months. She is very deceptive in the fact that she covers her bases well, with facts like her parents are dead and she has no one else to "live for, but you". I thought for sure that it couldn't be my Kseniya, I couldn't find any pictures of her, but when I read the letter that (Don C.) wrote I knew it was her. I'm sending pictures with my letter so everyone will know what she looks like. She asked for $390.00 for the B-2 visa, I suggested a K-1 which is for fiancée's but she responded with that takes to long and I need you in my life. Rob M.

Anna Yarovikova (Volgograd, Russia)

I am a single father of one , Electrician near Buffalo, NY. She first contacted my through my personal add on Yahoo, we sent leters back and forthe for about 18 days. There where many letters exchanged before she asked for money for a visa. I was a fool but I sent her 200 dollars a few days later.

I directly would like to learn more about you to learn your interests as you live as you work. I am very glad to have such friend, as you. I in life very cheerful person and at me very responsible work as I already spoke, I work to help the bookkeeper, and I not in what a case should not make a mistake, both in work and in life I not less responsible person, I think, that the person should concerns to associates as wants that to it concerned. In my life was a lot of pleasure, but besides it is pleasure always stood on a number with more sad events. I never was for the husband and I have no children, but I very much would like them to have, but from the person with whom our love would be mutual and that the child anything did not require. The main features of human character I think Sincerity, kindness, politeness and as I think, that the person it is necessary should be the respectable citizen with love to the country. I very much frequently see young pairs, I see as they are happy, I sincerely am glad for them, but thus I remain itself the person whom not loved At me when that was one friend, but it is little bit sad history, I was possible shall tell to you about it little bit later. I as like to be on a nature, there I feel quieter. As other my hobby is domestic animals and in particular as I already spoke you my cat Murka. On it I also shall finish the letter to you, and with impatience I shall look forward to hearing. Your new friend from Russia Anna.

Hi my beautiful friend Brad I am sincerely glad, to that you have answered me again. Yes I believe in the god. Your letters give me a charge of energy for all day! I read them with the great pleasure. In the letters you may ask me about everything, that interests you about me. But if I on them do not answer you, do not take offence, I simply can not understand it , set to me it slightly on another and I it is indispensable on him shall answer you. It is my first experience of acquaintance through the Internet, but this way has very much liked me as I was answered at once with the person who has liked me. I write the letters from the Internet of cafe so be not upset if I shall not answer you the letter at once, simply the Internet of cafe may be closed. Today I went to church, today for me little bit sad date, this day my parents were lost. I orthodox christian, at us very beautiful churches, at that moment when I am in church I feel quietly, me already cease, that or to disturb. It is very interesting to me what weather at you today, I think, that at you should be warm. Spring my liked season, I likes to look, how the nature comes to life after winter. As the first kidneys on trees are dismissed. Birds who an autumn departed on the south arrive , but they again will return. The first grows a grass, many children leave on street and are pleased to this season. Children it future our planet and on them all our hope, does a pleasure me the big pleasure to observe of them. My parents educated me good formation as you know I has finished the Volgograd state university on a speciality the ecologist. But nevertheless I do not work on this speciality. Sometimes at me in life there come such times, that I seem to me, that already for whom it is not necessary, that I shall stay one, but nevertheless I calm myself and I believe that the main love in my life still will come, the GOD will help me with it. Tell to me more about itself, you like to listen to what your liked dish, what your liked film, what else music. My liked dish it pelmeni, this very tasty dish from Russian kitchen which consists of forcemeat of a beef and pork with an onions and spices wrapped up in a dough and are cooked. This really excellent dish. There may be sometime I of you him shall feed. My liked films it Gladiator and Angel city, is film about the big love when it was finished I very strongly cried if you of it did not look, look necessarily, it is pleasant to you. As to music, she is pleasant to me! different on mood, I as like Russian classics Tchaykovskiy, Rohmaninov, Rimskiy-Korsakov as it is pleasant to me Madonna, Enya, Kylie Minogue. I think, that after that you will know letters more about me. I very much like your letters. On it I shall finish the letter. Your friend Anna.

My great friend Brad Again I receive from you the letter and I am very glad to this event! I hope, that to you about what I write is clear.

And you attachment to me? I think what yes if it so that it is healthy! I shall give you my home address so we can correspond letters by usual mail, but nevertheless it is not so convenient, as it seems to me, in the first letters will go very long, and there is an every prospect, that the letter will be stolen, at us in Russia of it it is possible to expect... From many steal letters simply from there is nothing to do , but nevertheless I shall give you the address: Russia Volgograd 435056 street Karla-Marksa 58 flat 25 Yarovikova Anna But it seems to me, that all oaee is easier to communicate through the Internet, in general I think, that the Internet this big achievement as people from two different ends of a planet may communicate with each other freely that I have got acquainted with such person as you already because of it only I shall tell to the Internet many thanks!  Much to our regret I do not have phone, in Russia it is the whole problem, not enough at whom in Russia there is a phone of a house so we might speak by the phone, but it is possible if such opportunity I necessarily shall call you will be presented me.

At us with you as I understand the new feeling arises, I tested such feeling at school when studied in 8 class, I then have fallen in love with one, the boy, but at present it drinks alcohol very much, in general in Russia very big quantity people drink vodka do not understand why. I very big opponent of the use of alcohol, and I in life of it shall never use! As not the supporter of smoking, I! think, that this superfluous. It was very pleasant for me to receive from you the letter, I start to be pleased lifes, and this pleasure is connected by that we have found each other. What all of you the remarkable person! With such person as you I would agree to lead all life, I know, that it is possible to rely on you, I completely trust you and I know, that such person, as you never me deceive. The deceit is the most bad character trait of the person, it at all does not decorate the person!  Today with girlfriends I went to park and I have noticed there one pair, there were two and embraced, their persons looked the happiest which it would be possible only will present, and I represented, that it is possible we when-ieaoau as we shall go together and we shall be happiest people, such, that everyone will look at us and everyone will be to admire.  Still I very much love the order, am inadmissible, that at me houses were are scattered things or there was a dirty utensils, I done not complicated at all by to clean all these things, it does a pleasure me only pleasure.

Elena Pismena (Poltava, Ukraine)

I am afraid that I was not particularly surprised to read about the activities of my former fiancee on your Blacklist and I can add some more details to your story about Elena Pismena from Poltava, Ukraine. I am an Englishman, 41 years old (now happily married to a wonderful Ukrainian lady). I first started to correspond with Olena (her name at that time) in December 1997 from an advert I saw on We got on very well by email and phone calls and our first meeting took place in Kiev and Poltava, Ukraine in June 1998. Our relationship looked very promising and I thought that we could have a future together. She wanted to see how I lived first so I invited her to the UK on a tourist visa. In September I made a 1500 USD money transfer to her for her visa and all travel expenses. She came over to the UK in November 1998. We travelled around the ountry, and I introduced her  to my parents and many of my friends. There was no doubt at all that she was very happy whilst in the UK. We were considering our next meeting in the UK on her fiancee visa. I gave her a diamond engagement ring which she accepted, and she agreed to spend the remainder of the 1500 USD I had sent for getting her fiancee visa. However, after she left the UK I saw neither Olena nor any of this money again.  When she returned to the Ukraine the tone of her letters changed dramatically. It got cooler and more distant and she tried to find reasons to accuse me of my inappropriate attitude to her. She was making excuses about not applying for the fiancee visa and in February 1999 I therefore decided to check the Internet marriage web sites. I was shocked to find her new adverts, which had been sent soon after we had developed a very serious relationship in the UK!!!! I confronted her about this, and only then has she told me that our affair is over and she just didn't know how to tell me. Not something one would expect from somebody who claims to be an "generous", "honest", "faithful", "genuinely caring" lady "with good upbringing from an enlightened family"! I know that she is still on the Internet, sometimes on the same web site with different names, photos, towns and even countries (Russia and Ukraine). Her name can be Lena, Eileen, Evelina, Honeybee, OneWarmHeart, etc. Towns she is from include Kiev, City-of-Ukraine, Saint Petersburg, Slinkov Yar, Poltavskaya Oblast, Kievskaya obl. She is represented by many photos, some of them are very old indeed. She can  give different dates of birth and actual age. Her occupation varies from a Senior Manager in a bank to a Business Owner. If she is really looking for a husband, her soulmate, then why does she give false information about herself at the very start of the relationship? Well, I can confirm that she is capable of telling different lies and our communications terminated when I accused her of this. I now clearly see, especially after reading the letter of the unfortunate Norwegian man, that her activities nowadays are much more corrupt and damaging to her "friends" than I experienced. Best regards, Tim Shaw, UK.

Inna Biryukova (Kiev, Ukraine)

Hi, My name is Steve and I am 42. I began a corresondence with an Inna Biryukova of Kiev. Aka: Masha Bogatyreva of Yoshkar Ola. Nice pics. She suggested an email & translation company then known as in Kiev. Now aka: Starofukraine, ukrainestar, Redrosetrip...the names keep changing. We wrote for 6 months using them. I then had them checked out using friends in Kiev. The whole show is a scam. They claim to have offices in Odessa, Nikolaev and Kiev. Not really. These offices (apartments) are where the emails are written. ( 8 Boychenko St.) A little potboiler operation. Andre Margait and his partner (Sergi?) oversee the writing of all the fictious emails to unwary guys. They keep a string of girls photos on the personals sites and wait for the guys to bite on the bait. They do.  Of course 10 guys are all getting the same letters and and buying email "stamps" and English lessons and candy for these fictious girls. There are even a few real girls and although the gifts are paid for, the girls never receive them. This is profit. Its all just a take your money game. Don't send any. I included a couple photos of "Inna Biryukova". Best, Steve 

Natalia Smorkalova (Nizhny Novgorod, Russia)

Hi, I have an update on Natalia Smorkalova. I am a single white male, self-employed, living in the USA, interested in finding someone special. I have become tired of the dating scene and decided to try something different. I didn't know how different it would become. I was contacted by a Russian woman on the popular site . And after corresponding for about two weeks, I have found that she is a scammer. You can find her by entering her name in also. She has three profiles posted on as nnataly (31830020) - natkaE40D (31738274) - natashka439A (31734873) . I am including the photos she sent to me. The last three photos appear to be a different girl. The letters are very naturally written and they seemed sincere... but don't be fooled. THIS IS A REAL SCAMMER! I never lost any money to her thanks to the russian brides black list, but my feelings took a hit. Here is the mailing address she gave to me: Russia, 607635 Nuzhegorodskaia area, Bogorodskii raion, Novinki, Centralnaya Street, 17-18 Smorkalova Natalia.  I hope this saves others some money and heartache. Thanks
