Elena & Olya (Kanash, Russia)

My name is Eric and i was contacted by :Elena of Kanash, Russia which she states is closest to Moscow. I was contacted by her after she saw my profile on Her initial email address was, She stated that she had a regular email address to use and gave me and it stated she was from Texas on her profile, which was gone 2 days later. I wrote to her for 2 weeks and i just found out today she is on the black list. her emails to me were cut and pasted just as the black list showed them along with the same photo. after asking her direct questions and not getting the answers I wanted, I decided to do a little research when she signed one of her letters "Olya", by mistake. When i confronted her on this she said Olya was her last name. I ran a search for and came up with a hyperlink to this site on the black list. I first ran a search for Elena, and I got nothing. Then I decided to try "Olya" and Bingo! there was her picture and same letter she wrote me. Well, i was lucky I figured this out early in the game. I have lost nothing but a broken heart. Attached is 2 other photos not on the web page. Advise for the others, I hope you were as smart as me to research these women, and catch them before it is too late. Be careful, Eric.

Evgenia (Novouralsk, Russia)

Hi, Elena. I just read the "Anti Scam Guide" and it helped solidify in my mind that I was in touch with a scammer. (ug!). I still don't want to believe it...but I know it's true. She contacted me first and followed just like your example #1. I have attached the text of the 6 emails below as well as photos. In #4 she sent me a "special" photo of her holding up a paper that said hello with my name on it. It took under two weeks and only 6 mails to ask for the $1000 to go through "Elite Tour Agency" 100% guarantee etc...just like her "girlfriend had done" before. She did offer to ICQ chat, but never did. Emails came through at almost the same time every day. In my last mail I used some of your question techniques to nail down her address and to let her know that I would find others ways of meeting instead of sending money. Haven't heard from "her" since... Hope this helps others not fall for Evgenia! I was not looking for a Russian bride but if I do (and may now)..I will get your other book as well. Good Job! Here are "Evgenia" specifics: Name: Evgenia. City: Novouralsk. Email: ICQ: 228679634. Thanks for your help! Erik.


Hello dear Erik, I am so happy that you have wrote to me. I hope you read some information from my profile, but i would like to tell you little bit more. Well, let's start. I am 23 y.o. and my birthday - 15 September,1980. I live in a small city on Ural in Russia - Novouralsk. I was born here and lived all my life. I have wrote on site that i live in US because they did not accept russians, but in any case i could move anywhere to meet my match. So write me back if you still interested and long distance does not bother you. I liked my school years and also when i was in college, I went there after school and I have got a higher education. I finished The Ural State Technical University. After university I began to work and I work about 1 year. I am work in my city for one firm as a manager and sell the goods. I live with my parents in a small apartment. I am one child in family. My mother is a teacher and she works in school. My father working at the factory. I am working 5 days a week , 9 hours a day and i have 2 days off. Usually I spend my free time with my famile and close friends. I like to walk, go hiking, outdoors, skiing and skating on winter and swim and sunburn on summer. I'm fond of sport. Running, aerobics, fitness, ride on bicycle. I learned English in School and university. My english is not so bad, but my pronunciation is worse because I do not have a practise. I enjoy cooking and i like to cook with my mom. You know Russian cuisine is very delicious and different. Why I posted my profile at this site, because I'm not a young lady and i am thinking about my future. Here is a problem to find a good, serious and kind guy. All my friends, guys of my age are not serious and don't think about future. I am romantic, tender, kind and funny person with good sense of humor, but I need the love,support and respect and if I get it I give twice as much. I think I can be a good wife and mother for kids. I will tell you a bit more about me, hobbies, dreams and thoughts when you write me back. If you have a questions please ask and I will answer with great pleasure. Sincerely yours, Evgenia p.s. i included several pictures from Egypt last summer.

Hi dear Erik, I'm so happy to recieve your letter today, I was waiting when you will write me back. I am fine and as I promised I am writing you some more about me and sending you some new photos. I hope you will like them. I add my profile on this dating site, because I hope to meet special, kind, loyal, honest person with the same goals as mine and create a family with kids. You know several weeks ago one my best friend told me about this site. She met one good guy at this site and then she has flew to his place to meet him in real life. I hope that we'll learn closely each other by emails and maybe meet in a person in the future. I will have a vocation next month and i'll be happy to spend it with you there if you invite me. So, don't be affraid to ask me everything you are interested in. The most important qualities I am looking are faithfulness, honesty and loyalty. I want my husband to support me, care me, love me, respect me and enjoy me always. And when I'll find such man I will give him all my love and tenderness. I have a lot of hobbies: cooking, reading, fashion, music, theatres and sports. I regularly visit a gym and when I have free time I like to go to swiming pool with my father. My measurments 89-61-92 and I am 175 cm height and 57 kg weight. So I can say I am sporty girl:-) I like to eat healthy food (fruits,vegetables, fish, seafood and chicken). Also i like traveling, i have been to many cities of Russia: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Perm, Cheliabinsk, Kurgan, Anapa and once in Egypt, but i have never been in to the US or Europe. I have a spent a nice vocation in Egypt with my aunt and i can recommend it to you. I like to listen a classical music, especially Bach, Mozart and Chaykovsky. But I also like listening pop and rock music, like a Tatu, ROXETTE, QUEEN, the Beatles, Elton John, Michel Jackson, Madonna, Bonie Tyler and so on. Do you like reading? My favorite authors are Bulgakov, Pushkin, Dikkens, O'Henry, Fawls and Tolstoy. Now I am writing you from my work where i have a computer but it is almost busy. Also i can check my mail box from internet club near by me. Unfortunately i don't have a home computer because it's quite expensive here. But I hope I will be able to buy it in the nearest future. So please don't worry if you will not receive a quick answer from me, Ok? By the way if you have ICQ we can talk online, let me know what you think? Well I have to finish now. Hope to hear from you soon. I kiss you. Sincerely, Evgenia

Hello my dear Erik, I'm glad to receive your letter today. The weather is warm here those days summer !!!! We don't have a stable weather on Ural, sometimes we have snow on summer :-) and temperature on winter from +2 till - 40 C and +5 till +35 C on summer. Though I am a young girl, I am thinking about my future. I like to work and do those things I know and of course I want to have a job in another country because I don't want to be a housewife only, I have a diploma and hope that it will help me. You know, I worked as a photo model for one model agency. It's funny and quite profitable.I will send you some photos in the next letter. I am really interested in you Erik and you're the one for me now, i received some letters from other guys but they were not serious, like a pen pal or something. I am interested in creating a happy family and maybe it's too qiuck to talk about it, but are you ready to start a serious relations with me or maybe you want to continue your search? Please answer me honestly, I have to go now and I will try to check my mail box later. Many Kisses and Hugs, Yours, Evgenia p.s if you want we could chat in ICQ my number is: 228679634 and ICQ does not do video.

Hi dear Erik , I have made special picture for you today to prove you my reality, hope you'll enjoy it. I look like on last picture now. My hair little shorter. I will write you on your letter tomorrow because i am very busy at work. Hope you are well. Take care, Evgenia.

Hi my dear Erik, I am very happy to hear from you again. Thank you for your warm letter and pictures, i liked them alot. Every time I get letters from you my heart begin to beat faster. By the way, I think that we have a lot of common goals and we both want the same: we are loking for another half. Of course I understand it's realy hard to find right person, but we are trying. I am thinking about you all the time (60 minutes per hour, 24 hours per day). To tell you the truth I told my family about you and me, they wish us to be happy and they told me if you want to meet me in real life here or in your country, they'll say "YES, WHY NOT!!!" You know I have never been in your country that is why I prefer to meet you there and it's new for me. What do you think if I'll take a vocation from work and will fly to you for a short time first (a week or a couple or maybe more as you wish). I am not this type of women who use american guys will help them to relocate there and leave them forever and if you have a doubts in me tell me now. I just want to learn you more and i can't do it without personal meeting. I need to know how serious you are in relations to me. Internet pan pal is a good thing but we can't learn each other on 100%, am i right? I'll try to explain you why I added my profile on this site. Alot of young guys here like to spend time with a bottle of vodka :-) or drugs - i hate it. I think young guys here are not reliable and they are not serious. They want just a physical relationship. These are some reasons why I can't find my second half here in Russia. Ok, as i promised i am sending you several model pictures. I hope you'll like them. Well I have to finish my letter now. I'm looking forward to hear from you. Million Kisses, Your Evgenia.

Hi my darling Erik, I am so happy to get an answer from you today, you make my day. I don't have any words to say how I'm pleased that you want to start a serious relations with me and you want us to meet each other in real life. I think one meeting in a person is better then thousands of emails, am I right? I am sure this meeting will help us to learn each other and take a right decision about future and maybe we will be a good couple. My friend did get a tourist visa without problems and i can do it too. Honey, by the way I have been at one Travel Agency "Elite Tour" who helped me with trip to Egypt last summer and asked how much it takes and what i will need to fly to you for vacation. They offered me tourist tour which includes tourist visa, insurance and round-trip tickets. I have an international passport and i could fly to you in a week and we could spend about 7-10 days together, you told me you on vacation now. This tour costs from 1000 to 1100 US dollars depending of airport. Please tell me the name of the city and international airport which are closer to you and I will tell you the price. As they working with American Consulate they give 100 % guarantie that visa will be approved. Of course it sounds good but there is one problem - it's too expensive for me. It is very inconvenient for me to ask you, but can you help me with trip expenses or can you contact with them and order tour for me. If you want i could give you their coordinates. I am thinking of you all the time and it seems that I know you for a long time, I am serious and I know that we can be happy together. If you have a questions I'll be happy to answer. I have to go now. Can't wait for your answer. Kiss you hot. Love, Evgenia.

Evgenia Alexeevna Nizhniy (Novgorod, Russia)

I am a single, white, american male, age 37, divorsed, no kids. I was orginally contacted on 3 Jun 2004, thru Yahoo Personals until I discovered the truth on 25 Jun 2004. She was really good and detailed in her letters. She said she lived in a small flat, and didn't have a phone. She said she had been divorsed for 2 years and didn't trust Russian men and wanted to move to the United States, and hopefully marry an American man. Here is the first email from Evgenia, and the email where she tells me how much money she would need for her Visa, and plane ticket. I removed the street address from the email she sent me because I found out it did exist, but an elderly couple lives there. That is when I did some research and found out she was a scammer. The email address she is using is: Here is the first email, and the email about the cost of her visa and plane ticket. I hope this information helps. Sincerely, J. Little.


Thu, 3 Jun 2004. Hi Jim! First of all sorry for not writing to you for so long. I hope it is not a problem. It was a pleasant surprise for me when I found your answer in my mail box. I have tried to write to you but I thought that you will not answer to me. It so is interesting to correspond with a foreigner from America. I know computers very badly but I am taking computer courses. So I now know how to use mail on the computer. As you have understood I live in Russia in the city of Nizhny Novgorod and my real name is Evgenia. If you want I will tell you about my city. Today I went to a computer club and I have made new photos that I can send to you if you want me to. In this letter I will send you my photo. I am thirty years old now but on 15 July I will be 31. I'm look for a man to develop relationship, live with and to plan my future life. I am alone but I do not want it to go on like this. I divorced 2 years ago and I haven't yet got kids. I have serious intentions and I do not want to make a wrong choice. I have tried to write to you and now I see that you have answered to me, I think we can begin to correspond with you. I have written to you only once and you answered my letter. So I hope that you got interested. Am I right? We are two people in the world who want to meet someone. I think we can try to get to know each other better but, of course I don't insist. That's your choice. I want to ask you whether you corresponded with women already? Do you have friends from Russia or friends who know Russian people. It's interesting. Can you speak Russian a bit? I studied English at school and university. I hope you understand me and my English is not poor. I have finished university, speciality: economy and finance and now I work in as a financier in an agency. I have computer here and I use it for our to correspond with you. But you must know I can't use it for long time and, please, when you send me photos try them smaller, ok? They do not allow to use internet explorer but e-mail is available. So I write you from work. Sometimes I refer to a translator program to write to you because I don't know some words but mostly I write myself. I can write you 5 times a week, I think I can't write on sundays and saturdays. (I don't work on weekends). Now I live alone, actually renting a flat. For the first time I hope this information will be enough. If you answer me I'll write you tomorrow. I'll wait for your response. And we will talk about all other details later. And if you are really interested and write me, please, tell me some information about you and if you can send pictures of you. I would like to see them. Best regards, Evgenia.

Wed, 23 Jun 2004. My love Jim ! Now I absolutely have no doubts, that my intentions are very serious. Thank you for taking the time to write me, If you only knew how happy your letters make me. Thank you for being so sweet. Every day I find myself, spending more time thinking of you. Every day, before go sleep, I imagine our first meeting. How I come from airport, and I see you at the first time. I really can't imagine how many emotions I'll feel, because even thinking about it, my heart beating is becoming faster and faster. It seems to me, that I did not want anything in my life, as to meet you. My dear Prince, your letters are pure inspiration to me. I want to see you, and tell you, that I miss you more and more as the days pass. I want you to be my happiness for ever. A lot of time has passed, I feel nervous, because I think that love has finally found me, can this be Love? Yes. My inner feelings never lie. I think of the future, many years from now and I see you and me, together, married, our family, I know it may sound a kind of silly, but it is my dream, you are my dream, a life by your side. My dear Jim, I wonder how will it feel to have you in my arms, to kiss you, to love you. It makes me crazy, no, YOU make me crazy! I can stay with you 6 months, then if I won't want to come back (or if we'll be married), I'll be able to stay with you, and do everything for new visa or something else from USA. I already got a passport, so I have it, and I need only to buy ticket and visa. I need 350 $ for visa, and exams for getting it. And I need about 1400 - 1600 $ for tickets, it depends on a date of my arrival. I think, that we have to divide charges, because my mother saved some money (600 $), and she told me, that she wants to give me a present: to help me to come to you, because she knows, how much I want it. My dear, so, I need 1150 $ now, may be I have to pay more, but for getting visa, I have to pre-pay for tickets 1400 $. I hope, that it'll be a good news for you, as for me, because nothing can prevent us to be together. I love you so much my dear Jim ! You princess Evgenia. ps ^ my address: Marahanova Evgenia Alexeevna. Nizhniy Novgorod 603093 Russia.

Hello my Sweetest Tim, 
I hope you do not mind I call you my Sweetest:) I just feel so great today and you know why? Because I have got your e-mail again. You know, My Darling, you've become such an important part of my life, I cannot think of anything or anybody but you. I just cannot help dreaming about you and me together, my Sweet Darling. Do you think it is possible for us to meet in person? Maybe you can come here or I can come to you? Our e-mails to each other are really wonderful but we need to meet in person, my Dearest, as I already cannot imagine my life without you, Tim... You know, it is such a nice day today, it's really sunny here, the birds are singing, and I am here, in the Internet cafe writing to you, my Honey. And all the day just looks like that something really wonderful is going to happen to me in the nearest future. I am so thankful to the Internet that it let us meet and I do hope we can be together in reality, as it has so many different things to offer, my Sweetest. By the way, I am going to call you up soon. I so much want to hear your voice, my Sweetheart! Frankly speaking, I just cannot wait! And I believe with all my heart that our phone talk will make us so happy, my Sweetest Tim... You know, I miss you, I miss your letters. Could you send me a picture of yours so that I could print it out? By the way, my parents say hello to you and wish us happiness. My Darling, what is your favorite food? And color? What do you prefer for breakfast? I want to know everything about you, every single detail of your day. Do you prefer juice or coffee or tea? Please tell me whatever you would like me to know about you, ok? As for me, my favorite food is Russian. Have you ever heard of pelmeni, solyanka, chebureki, borsch? I also like Japanese food and Italian food. My favorite color is white and blue. For breakfast I usually have some salad and tea. I like tea most of all. My Sweetheart, I do hope to hear from you soon and I hope you also want us to meet in person. You might also understand that just one day together in reality is much more better than even a million of letters. Of course, we can tell each other everything, but this way of communication is virtual anyway and I so much want us to touch each other, to look into each other's eyes... Well, My Dearest, I need to go now, I just want you to know that you are very special to me, Tim, and that you are the only person I am dreaming about... Your Marina

Hello my Dear, You cannot even imagine how happy I am now after getting another nice e-mail of yours. I feel so great! And I so much hope everything is going to be really wonderful between you and me, my Sweetest. You know, yesterday I told my parents about you, I told them that I seem to have found a man with whom I want to be in serious relationship. They asked a lot of questions about you and it seems to me they like you. By the way, they say hello to you, my Dearest Tim. Well, I think I need to tell you more about me, so let me start. I like a lot of different things. I do enjoy swimming, skating and skiing. I like to go camping and bowling with my family and friends. I enjoy cooking a lot and if we are together, and I hope we will one fine day, I'll prepare something really delicious for you, my Dear. I adore sweets, any of them:) I like watching movies and my favorite films are "Gone With The Wind", "Ocean's 11", "Pretty Woman", "Once Upon A Time In America", "The Rock", "The First Knight" and a lot of others. Frankly speaking I like any films but horror ones. Well, as for the music, I can listen to any music style though usually I prefer alternative one, something like Cranberries, Garbage, Aerosmith, Cardigans, Chuck Berry, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Nirvana, Metallica... What about you, my Dear? What are your hobbies and interests? What films do you like? What music do you listen to? I want to know everything concerning you, Tim. My Dearest, I wish I could hear your voice. Maybe you can give me your phone number? I would like to talk to you on phone. I believe it'll be so wonderful and exciting for us both, Tim... Well, my letter seems to become longer and longer again. So, let me stop writing now and wait for your reply. Kisses and hugs, Marina. PS. Sorry darling, I have got problems with my old mail account. I have no idea as to what the problem is. But here is my new mail address where you can reach me
