Thanks in advance for your support and most importantly for your website. It definitely saved me possibly $1500 dollars, because I was ready to send her the money, then your was listed on advertisement page and I checked it out and found out about her and another Russia from other a year ago I was communicating with. The flags were there, but your website confirmed/validated my thought process. Again, thanks. 


Fortunately I had read your website and had gathered enough knowledge to realize that this was a scam. I did not get scammed because of your website and the fact that it enlightened me. Thank you so very much!!

Signed, Scott G.

DINA (Nizhniy Novgorod, Russia)

I'm a single 34 year old man, approached on Yahoo personals. I new it was a scam on the 3rd letter when she forgot to fill my name in on one of her form letters. I was "Dear *****". I kept writing to see how long it would take for her to ask for money. Seventh was the charm. It took her about a month. Watch for her, Jon


Letter 1, Date: Mon, 4 Apr 2005 17:16:06 +0400, From: "Nadia" <CRAZY_SUNNY029@MAIL.RU>
Hi,Jon! How are you? Is it smile on your face? I hope so, because I'm smiling, and I'm happy to hear from you! I have to say to you, that I am new in the Internet, and I could not imagine myself, that my message to you will give result, and I'd find your letter so fast! Ok, my name is Dina, I'm 29 years old,I've never been married and I have no children. I can do 2 things: I am the cynologist (trainer of dogs) and I am also the instructor of fitness and aerobics. I give a lot of time to work and I have no time on private life and I can't find a worthy man in Russia. But I won't begin to re-tell you all the information, which was in my profile, I just want to remind you, that I'm from Russia, I was born in Russia, and I live here now.I feel sorry for misunderstanding. This profile was made for me by Internet Cafe worker, and he had to write, that I live in USA in it, because access to Yahoo is closed for people, who live in Russia, and simply he did not find Russia in options there. If it doesn't scare you off me, I'd be happy to keep our communication. So, I have to say, that I am sorry for so short letter, but I have to go now (frankly speaking, I thought, that you won't answer, and I came to the Internet Cafe only to check my mail), and I have to say to you, that I am very glad to keep our conversation, and feel free to ask me, what you want to know about me, I'll be happy to answer to every your questions. I am sending my picture to you. So, I am waiting for your letter, and I won't let you to wait my answer! Best regards Yours Dina

7th Letter, Date: Fri, 6 May 2005 16:27:05 +0400, From: "Nadia" <CRAZY_SUNNY029@MAIL.RU>
My sweetheart Jon!!!!!! It is really very difficult to express those emotions, that I'm feeling now just by words. I feel, that I have wings growing because of your letters. Honey, Ive printed out your photo and take it with me wherever I go and it have it with me whatever I do. I hope, that you understand.:) When I received your letter today, I made a call to my work and said that I feel sick, but in the fact I went to Moscow to the travel agency and I gave 350$ and all the necessary documents for making visa. I want you to know, that my aunt is working in that travel agency, she has promised me, that my visa will be ready till the 15-16 of May , also she said, that in case we want to meet each other in May it is necessary to reserve tickets beforehand. I know, that you have as strong feelings towards me as I have towards you, but there is a problem - I won't be able to come to you without your help. I've already told you, that the cheapest flight from Moscow to USA costs 1160$. As far as I'm going to get visa B2- tourist visa,I have to buy two-way tickets,that's why the price is high. When I gave my money for my visa, I've borrowed from my mother 100 $ - that is all that I've managed to get. So, there is 1060$ left, that I don't have, to come to you, to be with you, to love you, my sweet Jon. Honey,help me please to believe, that dreams are possible to come true, and we'll be really happy together. I'm sending you the site of the travel agency "Kompas" , which is making me the visa and where I will arrange tickets: .
P.S. I'm really very sorry for asking for your help to come to you, but the price of the tickets equals to my salary in a year. I'm a simple Russian girl, who really wants to be happy, and it seems, that she has already found her happiness.
P.P.S. I hope so much to see your quick and positive reply and in case you say "Yes", tomorrow I'll find the best and secure way for sending me money to buy tickets to come to you. Yours Forever Dina, Whatever Happens.

I have decided to place my profile in Internet because I want to find the special person. I am very lonely here in Russia.

I hope, that my letter is not boring for you. Unfortunately it is time to me to go, already is very much late. Your new friend from Russia Elena. 

Larisa Gordeeva (Goritcy, Tver Region, Russia)

I am just your average 35 year old single guy with a profile listed on Good job, no bad habits. I was contacted through Yahoo Personals by Larisa Gordeeva, 30 years old from Goritcy, Tver Region, Russia ( ). I didn't reply to her for about a month, but in mid-late November 2004 we started e-mailing every day. She seemed like your average woman, just looking for her soulmate. We talked about normal things that people discuss when they're getting to know each other, and it seemed legit. She was a sweetheart, and often said the she was developing feelings for me, and I was for her also. Soon after, she notified that her e-mail address changed to but I thought nothing of it, she probably just changed e-mail service providers. Then one day she started writing about how she was going to apply for a tourist visa to come and see me, since she was leaving her job at the Bureay of Marriage, soon to work in a clinic (she had an education in medicine). I didn't think a lot of it, until one day she told me that she received her visa to come to America. She explained how she had to hand over various "analyses" to prove that she was intending to come back to Russia, that she did not plan to immigrate to the USA (at least not at this point).

When she went to buy her airline tickets, she came up short by $335. She claimed to have put her and her friend Lena's jewelry in pawn to pay for part of the ticket. But, then she asked, in a humiliated sounding way, if I could send her the $335. She showed me a picture of the visa (it was a fake, but I didn't know it at the time), and gave me flight numbers, times of arrival and so forth (they were legitimate flights, I checked on She said she had 10 days to pay for the rest of the ticket, or her deposit would be lost. I worked feverishly to remedy this situation, checking with Western Union. I was about ready to send the money, but I thought that it would be best to check up on this girl before I sent it to her (Western Union). I employed the help of (whose services were invaluable) and came to the conclusion that Larisa was a fake. The address she gave me 38 Soviet Street, Goritcy) was a building that had burned down several years before. The local postmaster had never heard of her, but was holding a letter for her, since it could not be delivered (I never send her any snail-mail).

I stalled until the investigation was completed. I asked her what the name of the ticket agency was, to see if I could pay for it directly. But with each day Larisa grew impatient, once even asking if I had joked that I was going to help her. Finally she snapped and became angry that I did not help her. The letters stopped. I have used to do some research, and by pure coincedence, met another gentleman that lived not far from me, who was also communicating with Larisa. We talked a little bit, and found that we were both receiving the same letters and photos.

I have also included some pictures. If you are seeking a Russian woman and receive a letter from this woman, it is most likely a fake. Do not send money! I have notified the US State Department and the US Embassy in Moscow, but I have not heard anything from them in several months, so I don't know that they made any progress. If you receive letters from this woman, and need any further information, feel free to contact me at Good luck! Steve S. East Windsor, CT

I have received the visa!!! I very much, am very happy. I I shall leave work in a bureau on January 19, and I can arrive to you!!! I shall see You in person!!! I have addressed to the company which sells tickets aboard the plane. I asked Them as I can fly in New York on January, 25. And how many it will be To cost for me. To me have told, that the ticket costs $1100 USD. I have asked them To find cheaper tickets because this price is very expensive for Me. To me have told, that I cannot have cheaper ticket on such Earlier number. Because tickets are reserved on much earlier. I Has asked to list all variants of flight. Together we could find The ticket most suitable to me for January, 27 2005. The ticket costs $985 USD. I have asked, that they would reserve the ticket for me. But me Have given up having referred on a plenty of clients. And they cannot To reserve my ticket without advance payment. I very for a long time asked Them to reserve the ticket without advance payment. I begged them. But they Spoke, that would be glad to help me but rules are those. I was very much It is upset. Then I have asked them. Whether I can pay a part of money Now and other part later. But they again did not agree. I for a long time Asked them and have told him, that I am waited by the groom Steve. Probably if I asked them even more minute I would not restrain and have burst into tears. But Probably the god has heard me and people have agreed to reserve the ticket on My conditions. But to me gave small term for payment of the ticket. And Have put for me rigid requirements. They have told if I shall not be To pay the rest of the ticket in time I shall lose already enclosed Money. I wanted to be indignant, but to me have told, that it will be not simple To sell the ticket in "already flying" plane and they will be compelled to reduce The price. I have agreed. To me have told to pay $650 USD. But it appeared It is a lot of for me. I have told him to wait for me 2 hours. I have left from cabinet near to which I was waited by Lena. I have told to her all. She Has understood my problem and has suggested to put in pawn our jewelry in a pawnshop. Steve, for me it was very difficult to agree. I did not want to burden Lena. But to meet you I want also strongly!!! We have put in pawn And I could pay a jewelry of $170 USD the first part of the ticket of $650 USD. It was my last money for the plane on which I shall arrive to To you.

It would solve all problems and I It was really confident, that I shall receive this money. But unfortunately I I shall receive this money not earlier than in a month, because in Russia Constant delays of a payment. I asked to give my money earlier, but To me have given up. Now in a bureau there is no necessary money. Our bureau depends from the budget and consequently for a long time is not present receipt of money. Probably I should tell to you, that I can not meet you, Because I could not provide my travel completely. I understand, That should not ask you. But at the same time I cannot is simple To tell, that I shall not arrive to you. I have made too much, what Our meeting has taken place. If I shall simply refuse our meeting, All my diligence has been spent vainly! I have made so much, that for Me it is very hurt to refuse a meeting with you. Now I address to To you also I think, that in it there is nothing shameful. I understand, that is possible You have no any feelings to me and you is not interested in ours To meeting. And I understand, that it is the big money. I know it and consequently to me It is twice difficult to ask you. But also I understand my position in which There could be any person. And now there is only one thing which I I can make. It to tell to you, that I cannot fly to you. But I not I can tell so because I want to meet you and consequently I I speak sincerely, that I need in your help. I understand, that I put You in inconvenient position. But I the simple person, the simple woman. I I am ashamed to ask the help, but in a life there are various situations. I not The wizard. Any person could get in such situation. Certainly you not Is obliged to help me. It is bad, but is not fatal. I shall lose my money. It is bad, but is not fatal also. These of $335 USD which I have given for the visa and $600 USD which I have given for the ticket huge money for me. But I not I regret, all that I have made it for our meeting. Actually it is simple Money and our jewelry it simply metal. Meaning of the life not in these Money and this metal. For this reason I was the first who have made a step Forward for our meeting. I do not want, that all would be spent all for nothing. If you really want to meet me. If you can help me To make our meeting, please send money for the help to me up to Mornings on January, 25 2005. I do not want, that you would doubt of mine Honesty. For this reason I send the image of my visa. I wanted To show you it (but not for the request). I asked people in embassy To scan the visa on cd.

This number will give you in your bank, if you Will send your help. Only in presence of all this information I can To receive your help. Please forgive to me all my words. I speak so, because I I am in despair and confusion. Now, when only One step is separated us, I am afraid. I are afraid, that you will not help, and All my diligence will have there is no use. I need in you, and I I want to be with you and a word of honour, yours the help is necessary for me. I Has not calculated my forces. I understand that it - very big money for You.

Marina Averkieva (Noyabrsk, Russia)

I'm a single man 42, professional, who was contacted through the dating site "American" by this supposed beautiful lady. I was first contacted on the 18 April 05, she said that she lived in NY, and after a couple letters back and forth, she then indicated that she actually lived in Surgut, Russia. On 01 May 05 she indicated the same, that she had a travel agency etc. The pictures were the same, so no reason to show more of the same. The letters were verbatim of those posted by Randy and Edward, stating the same. This is just a sample of too many letters to post, but believe me the letters I read on your fabulous site were like running into a brick wall. Exactly the same. The address she used was Marina []. I was stupid enough to believe this. The history of events was happing the same time exact to the day of Edwards.


Hello my sweetheart............., How are you today? I again with impatience waited for your letter and you again have forced me to smile. I think, that you are the special person for me. You are very handsome man and I constantly dream of you. I have told all about our relations to my friends. They are glad to see, how I become happier, than was before. My friends say hello to you. Every day I hope, that all this is real, that you are not only my imagination. I want to hear as your voice, the way you speak, you laugh. This dream deeply in me. You know, that I do not have home telephone number, therefore I had to call to you from public phone. I tried to call to you, but I cannot pass. But, I shall try to call again. I know, that it will happen. You know, when I stay alone every evening, I think of our first meeting as it can be. I imagine, that you see me at the airport and you give me flowers. You take my hand and you kiss me, and we go in your house to celebrate my birthday. It will be the best gift on my birthday in the world. Or you can visit me and we shall celebrate it here, together, only you and I. I think of it all time. Did You imagine it or not? What do you really think of it? My sweet........., I do not stop to think of us, I imagine our first meeting, our embraces and our first kiss... My heart starts to beat fast. You know, I soon to take a vacation. My honey how you think, whether there can be we? I already told you, that I never left the country, but I could receive the detailed information on my trip to you if you do not mind. I want to ask you what is closest airport to to your place? My airport is located in the city of Surgut, it is 150 km from my house. You understand, that one meeting can give us much more, than long correspondence? What do you think of it? Let me know. I like what I feel and I like what we both have between us. I give you many kisses from me and I give you my heart. You live in my dreams. From Averkieva Marina with love!!! Russia, Noyabrsk, Popova street, 5-12.

I saw your profile at the site, and I liked much. I wanted to write a letter to you. I wanted to get registered on the site, but unfortunately all my attempts was failed, when I tried to place profile from Russia, therefore I took another country. I want to ask you if you corresponded with women already? Have you ever been in Russia or may be contacted with Russian people? It's interesting. I finished Medicine College 5 years ago and work as nurse in the Central hospital. My work is hard, but when I see at the eyes of sick people gratitude, I every time think, that it was right choice, and I am not sad about it. I have no computer at home and every time I write you from the Internet caf?. I have one request to you; if you send me photos, please, try to do them smaller, ok? You know, I studied English at the college, but it is not perfect off cause, so, I should please you to excuse me for my mistakes. If I will have possibility, I would try to take some English lessons soon. You know, I write you this letter by myself, but sometimes I use special program for translation some words or sentence. You know, Im really sorry, but I cant write you every day, so, please, dont be offended or worried if I would not write you one day ok? I will try to write you every day, but cant promise exactly, because this depends mostly on the amount of work that I have to do. I really hope, that I would get letter from you soon (if be honesty, I was not sure that I would have reply from you to my message, and I just wanted to check my e-mail and it was big surprise for me, thanks a lot). As I told you before, Im really interested to know you better, so, please, tell me more about yourself, and if this is possible, send me some photos. I would like to see them, and you can see my photo attached too. I cant send many photos in one letter, but I will send you another photo in the next letter too. I will be waiting your reply, with my best wishes, Marina.

Natalya Ivanova and DeLuxe Travel Agency (Totsk, Orenburgskaya region, Russia)

Me I am a 45 Y/O male that was contacted by Natalya via Yahoo Personals. Our conversations lasted about a week and she was in love with me (the man of her dreams). I questioned her motivation, how fast she fell for me and then the request for money came. Fortunately I had read your website and had gathered enough knowledge to realize that this was a scam. Being enlightened, I told the scammer I did not have the cash or vacation time to spend to be with them and would gladly come to Russia in August when I had vacation and money. Our communication was then terminated by them. They requested that I send money for Visa/Passport and travel to a place called DeLuxe travel agency in a single individuals name. I informed Yahoo personals that she had cancelled her profile but had two more on their site that had the exact verbiage as her original profile. I have yet to receive a response from Yahoo. None the less, I did not get scammed because of your website and the fact that it enlightened me. Thank you so very much!! Signed, Scott G.

Second Contact:
Hello, How are you? I am sorry if I didn't respond to you at once but you see I have no computer at home and I have to go to the Internet cafe which is located not far from my home. I thinks that first of all I should say thank you that you responded back to me and I guess I need to explain to you at once that I live in Russia, in Totsk city. Totsk is a closed city and it is located in Orenburgskaya region. It is a very nice and small city. I should say that I have never been to the USA but I think that USA is a good country with nice people and traditions. Actually in my profile it says that I am from the USA. I hope you are not very sad about it. When I was putting my ad I guess I have done a few mistakes because this is my first experience in Internet datings. I want to be honest from the whole beginning and thatsis why I want you to know that I am from Russia. I think I have to tell you more about me and my life here. It is pretty cold here today, it is abouts5 centigradessabove zero and what about your place? Is it cold there? I decided to put my profile on yahoo because I a very lonely here in Russia and I just couldn't find that specila man for me here. I know that many Russian women also found their love somewhere in other coutries and in the USA so I am here now also trying to findsmy love. By the way one of my friendsused to find her husband on yahoo personals also and now they live happily in Germany in a small city not far from Berlin . AndsI also want to be happy with someone special for me, and who will love me. And age doesn't matter for me at all, the main thing is to be happy and find love. I told my friends that I am going to write you and they support me because we all wish each other only happiness. I think you want to know about my family, well I have never seen my mother because she died borning me. I was brought up by my father who has gone this summer, he was a good Policeman and he was shot. SosI am alone now because I was the only child. As you see now nothing holds me now in this country anymore andsI try to find my love. You must be intersted in my likes and dislikes and etc. So here is some more information about me:
- I am a surgeon and I work in a city hospitals( I have a doctor diploma from the Medical Academy).
- I am a Christian
- I like white lilies
- My favourite color is blue
- My favourite music is classical
- I love pets and anymals
- I have no kids and I have never been married.
- I love cooking and my favourite food is Italian and Russian one. My best dish is lasagna.
- I have a driving license but I have no car
- I like to go to cinemas and theatres but I don't like disco because it is very noisy there and it is always overcrowded.
- I don't smoke and I drink socially ( for example a glass of red wine)
- I don't have tattoos or piercings exept for my ears.
- I don't like winters and it is very cold now in Russia.
I guess that is all for today and I hope you didn't get tired to read my email.sPlease write me more about yourself,s your likes and dislikes... Unfortunately I have tosgo home now since it is getting late here and I have a lotsof work to do for today. I very much hope that you will write me back today or tomorrow and I will try to reply to you at once... Your friend from Russia, Natalya

Olga Krasavica (Zvenigovo, Russia)

Hi, I just got a letter from some supposed Olga- somehow, out of the blue. I have no clue how this person got ahold of my email (by the way- don't put that. my email, on your site, cool?), but it wrote me, and when I tried where "it" lived (Zvenigovo "it" said), I found on your site how this person is using ALL SORTS of pictures and letters to scam people! With just the 2 letters I got I found "on your site alone" mass other letters sent to other men with some of the same pics of this girl that is writing me, and yet the exact same letters that I have with other girls pics on them. i.e.-

Adreisheva Veronika Victorova (Veronika)
Olga Krasavica- Zvenigovo, Russia (the one that is writing me, and has tried on another guy on your site)
Elena- Kozmodemiansk, Russia
Elena Ushakova (forgot to write 'where from')
Anna Vshivkova- Otradovka, Russia
Anna Lapushka- Jaransk, Russia

There may be more, but I don't have the time to check your whole site. In the attachments are the letters and 2 pics that I kept. The first pic she sent me I deleted because I didn't "completely" like her. It wasn't until the second letter that I thought "maybe I'll check it out," but then found her/"it" to be B.S.! I'll lead her/it on, then HIT HER UP FOR MONEY!!! I've done it before- I know that MASS of them scam, so I'll send a few "pre-written letters" myself, then hit "it" up for money and tell "it" to HAVE FUN IN HELL, ya know? (I'll make sure to drive that "have fun in hell" part- cool?) Keep up the GREAT work!!! R.M.C.

Tatyana Brusova

To Whom It May Concern, Please update the lastest actions on a "known" Russia woman already in your database. She used the Tatyana Brusova during our communications. Thanks in advance for your support and most importantly for your website. It definitely saved me possibly $1500 dollars, because I was ready to send her the money, then your was listed on advertisement page and I checked it out and found out about her and another Russia from other a year ago I was commuicating with. The flags were there, but your website confirmed/validated my thought process. Again, thanks. Glenn
