I started to go on a serious amount of research on Russia, it's culture, and other things. One of the most informative web sites I found was Elena Petrova's site ( I admit, I was completely ignorant of Russia. I also came across a lot of info on how Russian women have been scamming lonely guys and suddenly my suspicions and that flag were raised tenfold. I decided to contact Elena from the web site. Elena was extremely helpful in helping me determine that Tatyana was a scam and told me that I probably would find her name on the black list web site. I'm definitely going to give Elena's web site a very serious shot.

Marianna (also Aleksa, Alla) (Kiev, Ukraine)

This girl wastes no time, her real name is Alla, after 2 emails and an IM conversation, she was telling me that it was her 'Angel Day' that they celebrate in Ukraine (everyone has one apparently), and she had lost her mobile telephone. Would I as a gift buy her a new one through Western Union. She is a nurse by the way renting a $500 dollar a month apartment in Kiev (Alarm Bells). I contacted her through , a good site but has some scammers. Needless to say , I let her know she had been rumbled. her email address is

Marina Kushakova

Here are some more pics. that Marina sent me. 

Tatyana Alexeevna (Khabarovsk, Russia)

I am a single white divorced male, 35 years old, and an information systems specialist. Tatyana contacted me via Yahoo! Personals. I had posted an ad about a year ago and forgot all about that ad. Two months ago, I had an e-mail saying I had a message in my Yahoo! Personals Inbox. There was a message there from an Evgenia, a very attractive, 31-year old doctor from Podolsk. She quit writing unexpectedly. I have been looking for her on the black list but haven't found her yet. Some time later, I get another message in my inbox. This time, it was Tatyana. I couldn't find her profile on Yahoo! but she told me to e-mail her at We had corresponded for a couple of weeks before my "too good to be true" flag began to come up. I started to go on a serious amount of research on Russia, it's culture, and other things. One of the most informative web sites I found was Elena Petrova's site ( I admit, I was completely ignorant of Russia. I also came across a lot of info on how Russian women have been scamming lonely guys and suddenly my suspicions and that flag were raised tenfold. Nevertheless, I wanted to continue talking to Tatyana just in case she was the real thing. For two months, things went very well, but I was still very skeptical. So, I decided to contact Elena from the web site. Elena was extremely helpful in helping me determine that Tatyana was a scam and told me that I probably would find her name on the black list web site. At that time, I hadn't found it yet. Meanwhile, I had been pressing Tatyana for an address for a coupe of weeks. I wanted to surprise her with flowers. She finally gave me one last week and I decided to send her flowers without telling her. The address was a fake. However, she still hadn't asked me for any money yet. She did mention how she only makes 120 Dollars per month and complained about it. So, I suspected she was eventually going to ask for money. I finally found her on the black list this weekend. She was a brand new entry which is why I hadn't found her yet. She still hasn't asked me for money yet, but I have some of the very same photos she sent the other fella on this page, Brian. I also have a couple of other photos I didn't see in his letter and wanted to add them so that all the photos would be available including one she says was taken in front of her apartment building. Elena translated it for me and it says: Entrance 3 - Apartments 31-45. I don't know if she was ever going to ask me for money, but I was just getting disgusted with her and just couldn't continue to write to this person, so I wrote her a final e-mail back saying that the jig was up and that I was going to write the Russian Consulate about her. However, Tatyana did open a new door for me: finding a nice Russian woman. I'm definitely going to give Elena's web site a very serious shot.

Hi my dear Bruno! I am very glad to see your letter!!! Thank for a photos. Has very much liked!!! Yes I to love domestic animals. Especially cats and dogs. "Do you have a name for her?' - Name for your cat?:-)) I very much like name Pupsik!!!!! Please name so. I want to tell about myself little bit more. My education the architect of apartment houses. Now I am engaged in design work, I develop and to project the future offices, shops etc. I work in the office of engineering and planning. Our enterprise produces metal bars and and other steel framework very necessary for building. And the task of our office is to project new varieties of framework, to test it with different methods (chemical, electric, physical, etc.) and to improve and to rationalize the process of production. Unfortunately this work is not paid for advantage, this my opinion In general in Russia, people earn scanty money, it is hardly enough of it for residing For example, I earn 120 dollars per one month, from this money it is necessary for me to put on, eat, pay services of the Internet and still there are some female expenses Though, I all time am is occupied, I do not forget you and constantly I think of you Though we communicate via e-mail I believe this is not much different from a real talk tete-a-tete. In past I did ignore Internet connections with somebody an did not realize that it could be so vivid and delightful. It is good that in this world there is a person to whom I is not indifferent. It is very pleasant to me to know, that we is mutual understanding each other is the most important fact in our attitudes. It is very good for me, as I to meet you in my life. I think that our attitudes may be deeper. Your words heat my soul and heart. You in my heart each minute. I think that we should meet, we should see each other, looking in eyes each other, because through the Internet the emotions are lost and difficultly understand each other. I trust you and I want to tell you about my sexual experience. In Russia all men, dreams only to drag you in bed, but I do not want it, I do not want be given the first passer that he has taken pleasure. The love - it something more, than it give the man to find out appiness in this life, and men represent it only as sex. I think that it incorrectly and I hope that you with me agree. I want have sex, only with loving men. I shall given to him completely, my body and soul. We together to find out all depths pleasures. Our passion will be poured out for limits peoples love and we shall be enjoy each other all life up to last moment of our existence. That we are with you very far, it is a little sad. But I am sure, that we can have in the near future pleasure to meet. How you think? Our meeting... I think it there will be very important event in our relations. How you think? Your Tatyana.

Tatyana Ronzhina (Kazan, Russia)

My name is Doug and I am 49, and a single father with two children. I began receiving e-mails from "Tatyana" a week ago on July 6th, and when I went to look-up a translation for a Russian word "she" used in one of "her" e-mails, I was linked to a very thorough series of Russian-women scam web-sites. Sure enough, the exact same language and syntax was being used as a Google search link to the "woman" from Kazan, Russia, that sent me the e-mails. I have received four e-mails from her, but I deleted them all after a few days because I get so much e-mail traffic. I have attached the photos she sent to me in this e-mail. They are the same "woman" whose picture appears in the Russian-women scam web-site, under two other different names. I assume they are the same person, because the address in the scam web-site "she" gave to other men is identical to the address "Tatyana" sent to me. The e-mails were suspicious because the "broken English" grammar "she" used was sometimes poor, sometimes good and "she" would never reference information I sent to her when "she" replied to my e-mails. She is listed in the russian women scam sites under the name of Elena Maksimova, Anna Milchakova, and the name she gave me is Tatyana Ronzhina. The e-mails in the scam-site alert were almost identical to the e-mails she sent to me, referencing her girlfriend Natasha who found a German man named Frank on the internet. She then would say Natasha recommended that Tatyana should find a man on the internet, too. She also described her "family", her job as a waiter (sic) at a bar, where her "director" allowed her to use the computer. Of course, "she" has no phone in her apartment or computer, and "she" advised me against sending her mail because the Russian postal service is "full of thieves". I was also suspicious because I sent rather detailed e-mails about my interests in movies, music, and other subjects she inquired about, but she never referenced any of the information I sent "her" in the replies to my e-mails. Also, the photographs have a "Glamour Shots" look to them, as if they were j-pegs lifted from a commercial photographers web-site of photo examples. Due to the large number of men on Yahoo! Personals who seem to be victimized by these crooks, it would be good if the person(s) running this site would contact Yahoo with this evidence, so that others might not be victimized. It's obvious these are well-planned, long-term scams that need to be eliminated, so that the legitimate Russian women matchmaking operations aren't tainted for good by these scum-bags. The biggest joke, of course was when I went to one of the travel web-sites to see what a round-trip to Kazan, Russian Federation, would cost. In addition to being on planes and in airports from Texas to Russia for 24 straight hours, the cost runs from $4,500 t0 $5,600 dollars for an economy class, no frills airfare. I don't care if the babe is as good looking as Paris Hilton or Pamela Anderson, mother Russia can keep these women. I'm stickin' close to home. Let the buyer beware!

Yulia Dokshina (Volgograd, Russia)

Contacted me on Yahoo personals. Yahoo ID solnce_moe We continued writing for about 10 days from this address. She had already fallen "in love" with me. Emails were very convincing. Well ...convincing if you think someone can fall in love with you in 4 emails. She asked me to send money to this bank via Western Union. Russia, Name: Yulia, Surname: Dokshina. ALFA BANK, street SOVETSKAYA, 7. city VOLGOGRAD, 400066. Tip: I tried to send flowers. The address she gave me did not exist.
