After hearing (via FriendFinder) from "Irina" in Yoshkar-Ola, I had a sneaking suspicion she was too good to be true...and thanks to your blacklist, I quickly discover she(?) was! Please accept my THANKS for your invaluable help in protecting myself and my "wealth!"  


Thank You!! 

I too have been emailing a Larisa from Tyrumen. The letters are identical, so are the pictures. This could be fun, now that I know she is scamming. Thanks for the site and info, keep it up. 


Hi Elena,

and thank you!!!!! I have found your site, and you have saved me from total despair. I got hooked up two months ago with a couple of the 'bad' agencies, I will not bore you with the same old story. I did not lose any mula, but almost gave up completely on finding my better half somewhere in Russia. I would like to add - yours will be the ONLY site on all the internet, that I am likely to read every single phrase, ever!!!!!!!

Alla Babchinskaya/Yana (Odessa/Kramatorsk, Ukraine) 

I have been in contact with this woman but under her new name of Yana. Her profile is on the Absolute Agency site, with number A1319873. But instead of being in Odessa she is now from Kramatorsk. We have been corresponding now for about 2 weeks and thus far she has not asked for any money. In the past, any woman who asked for money was denied as it is taboo for women from that part of the world to do so. For now I am going to continue the emails until the inevitable letter arrives and then I'll let her in on the fact that she is blacklisted and that I was on to her for quite a while. Thanks for the information about this scammer, I really appreciate the service. 


Anna Churakova (Krasnoyarsk, Russia) 

I am presently being scammed by: Anna Churakova  And it is more a shame to me that I should ask that you have sent me money to the visa. I ask you that you have sent me 200 dollars. I understand that it little bit more than cost of the visa, but enters into this money as also the price of the ticket up to Moscow and the price of the passport for travel abroad. As you probably have understood I should fly to Moscow visit embassy and personally agree with employees of embassy upon registration of the visa. I ask to send money through system Western Union, I think that it is the most reliable and fast translation system of money from one country in another. Money should be sent to the address: ALFA BANK LENINA ST. 121 KRASNOYARSK 660021 RU CHURAKOVA ANNA 

It is the address of branch Western Union in city of Krasnoyarsk. Unfortunately I do not have personal bank account and for this reason it is better to send money on this system. When you will send me this money you should send me of ten figures (is number MTCN), without him(it) I can not receive money 

And my quick research has found out the following: 

Marina Klimova (Tyumen/Russia) I was contacted by Marina via I suspected a scam right away since she requested in her message to me that I reply to her email address instead of sending a message through The other thing that made me suspicious is that she removed her profile within a couple of days of my receiving her message. She used EXACTLY the same messages as used in the listing for Tamara Repina (Yuzho-Sakhalinsk, Russia). This was especially funny since the date she gave me for her birthday in the first message was different from one listed in one of the letters. I played along with the messages until I finally received her request for money. Her first letter to me on and the request for money are below. 

It seems that there is a definite ring working in Tyumen based on all the other listings. 


Hello! How are you? Are you happy, is there a smile on your face? I am happy for you, but I myself feel lonely without you beside me. My name is Marina. I was born on the 10 August in 1974. I live in city of Tyumen. Nature is so amazing and beautiful in our region. By nature I am communicative, cheerful, honest loyal, sensitive and optimistic. My main life goal is to create a happy, united family with a faithful, honest, sincere and loving man. Family means a lot to me, and it is my main priority in life. For me the word "family"  includes a man who can make me happy, home comfort and tranquility, quiet romantic evenings spent near the fire-place, noisy parties for friends and travelling for summer vacation. Most sincerely, Marina. 

P.S. Only necessarily write to me on mine present e-mail: 

Money request letter 

Hi my love Jon! Today I have for you very joyful news, I called to American Embassy and has learned that the visa is really cost 270 US dollars. This is cost of the visa which called B-2. This is the visa of the tourists or visitors. I learned about other kinds of the visas, but me was told that the visa B-2 is the most suitable variant for us. Besides I was told that it is possible to prolong it if it will be need, therefore I agree with them completely. But unfortunately I do not have such money. As you probably know in our country a very awful condition of economy and people are not payed the money for vey long time. Certainly it is a shame, but I am compelled to ask you these money for us to meet. If you can send me this money through the system Western Union. Money must be sent for my name to the address branches: TUMENENERGOBANK 145,RESPUBLIKI STR TUMEN  625026 RU MARINA KLIMOVA When you will come to the bank, there to you will be given the Money Transfer Control Number(MTCN) which consists of 10 figures. You should send me these figures which will help me to receive this money. The system Western Union is the most reliable system money translations all over the world. It is safe and quickly. You can ask if I know so much about this system. This is explained by fact that one of my girlfriends works in this bank. I am very glad that you want to see me, unfortunately, there are necessary money for our meeting, but money is only paper, main that we shall meet with you. We should trust each other because we love each other and we soon will meet. I called to a uncle in Moscow and he has told that he can find the ticket with the discount for me, but for this purpose it is necessary to know where is the nearest international airport to you. Yesterday I saw sexual dream about us with you, it was very much excited and I want to tell it to you. I dreamed as we we meet with you, as you take me to hands, we go to you home. At your home we go at once to a bedroom and you begin to undress me, our hearts are beaten synchronously, we are passionately kissed and you begin to teach me to all pleasures of sex. I love you and I begin to understand that love this such strong feeling, I am glad that I could test it due to you. With love forever yours Marina. 

I never sent any money and hope that this will help others avoid the scam. A couple of her photos are attached. 


Washington, USA


Diana (Sevastopol, Ukraine) 

Hi to all and thanks 1000 times to the people which are having this site ! I came to this site and saw the following page written by a person called called "TK" along with his comments : 

There is picture of "Dana / Maria - Stella Maris Agency (Sevastopol, Ukraine)" (see page) Just noticed on that Dana Sevastopol, D238962 has posted her profile under another alias, Maria, D393403 person. Maria Sevastopol. She is one and the same, and quite good at her game. Who knows what her age and real name is, and works out of Stella Maris agency with no website. I doubt if she really exists. 



So, there is my story : 

This girl is called Diana, it's her real name. I'm French, loner, high income. I've had a terrible childhood, living as a slum at 16 but I succeeded, always being honest, to make my own way. I speak 11 languages (8 fluently and wrote this message myself). I do not attach importance to money. Money is only a "tool", it comes and it goes. I'm not going to be buried with it. This my oriental part. 

I am the service manager in a big company manufacturing high-end movie-tv broadcast studio equipments. I really had a crazy life, I'm now 48 and I thought "why not ? Let's give it a chance !" It's being a long time without a weird adventure, so let's go to it ! I must say that when I saw all these pages on this site of guys been 'crooked", I must say that some of the guys are really "nuts" because these girls really look like top-models and they certainly have no problem to find a guy. 

But "Diana" is much smarter, preferring to have a "classy" touch. . We have corresponded by e-mails and I don't think it's necessary to duplicate them here, just read the others, it will be sufficient. I went to Sevastopol, Ukraine, and I must say it worth the trip. Crazy country, crazy people. She says she has a child and this is true. Irina, a sweet little piece of cake, 6 years now. Bought her a lot of toys which I brought there. It xxxxx me off for her, to have such a mother. And I met Diana. I pretended to have quite a modest income, just to see. We went around and finally went to my place and had a really close relationship. I've never been in my life with a prostitute and I felt how it could feel like. 

This is weird, I think it's instinct. I must be one of the "lucky" guys ... I must also say it worth the trip to Sevastopol, a devil in bed "scratch' in me till my bones are bare" .. (Al Jarreau). ;-) I've sent her money, paid her the trip to come to Paris for a visit, she didn't come, having different lousy reasons. I've sent her money but you know, it's only money ... People who has been caught like me must take it as a good lesson, salutary lesson. Come on guys ! Be fair-play ! These girls are just really so poor, and well, they are a bit stupid, but less than us, since they have caught us ! . If she had came, she would have had a really wonderful life over here, instead of getting xxxxx around. That's her destiny. When I was younger, I would have "fought" but now, I'm getting wise like an old cat and prefer to laugh about myself. 

She pretends to be a nurse but she isn't. She pretends to be actually working in Moscow to pass her international degree in nursing but it's just nonsense. I had this picture on November 08th 2001. I know she is not a nurse. My mother is retired now but she was a nurse in emergency dept in hospital for 20 years and her guy is a retired legal surgeon. So I could figure out quite fast ... 

I am not angry at all against her. I "lost" about 5000 dollars in this story but finally, I find it funny. It's a little slam on my "ugly" nose and a good lesson. This is why I have taken away the name on her passport as well as it's number and issue date. I just can't do this to her even thought she has crooked me. The worse is that I still don't know she could have been a little bit "honest", but trapped. Take care. 

For the ones who want to get in touch : 


Dyka Helena (Lugansk, Ukraine) 

The scammers name is probably Dyka Helena helen@is.comua at least that is the name that she wanted me to have the money forwarded to in Lugansk Ukraine. This lady or person supposedly provides a cyber cafe for women to use to communicate. 

My name is Stephen and I work for a business consulting firm in Tucson, Arizona. Some years ago we had an office in Helsinki, Finland so I have had some overseas experience. But I really was alerted to the possibility of a scam because of an article by Anatoly Neverov  

My original contact with the woman of my dreams (and she was) was through Absolute Agency. "Ella Han" was registered on 10-2-01 (A1300689) and my first contact with her was 10-9-01. For a number of weeks we corresponded and the relationship was progressing seemingly very well. But only because of Mr. Neverov's article did I begin to notice that this probably wasn't Ella Han but someone else who was using her image, i.e., someone had posed for two or three model picture and then someone else (possibly an employee of Dyka Helena's or herself) answered my letters with what they thought I wanted to hear while posing as the person in the picture. Inevitably it came to pass after three-four weeks and letters everyday that "Ella" couldn't afford to pay for the services. Although, a credit card was needed to be listed on the Absolute Agency site, only after three weeks did she not have the resources to continue. My questionson the money were answered by Dyka Helena possibly because of my not "knowing how to proceed". She requested that the money be sent to her instead of Ella because she used the services of the "bank" of Western Union. I called Western Union's international customer service number and was told that the recepient had to show a passport in order to pick up wire transferred money. Thus she gave me a name Dyka Helena, Ukraine, Luhansk. Her email is

It seemed funny that the prices for using the services of included translating letters(3-5$), telephone calls (10 minutes 5$), copying of photos (1-2$), doing the international passport (70-100$). But there wqas no price for providing the internet service which was what Ella Han couldn't afford to continue doing. 

Needless to say, no money was transferred to anyone. Too bad, "Ella Han" was my idea of a beautiful person inside and out. Too bad also that she was fictional. She is now being passed off as Helena Dyka and she registered this time with Absolute Agency on 11-19-01 and was given A1544658. 

I have not informed Absolute Agency. My suspicions are that they are based possibly in Russia (at least seem to have an unusual number of Russian women listed) and would respond to this situation just to get it off of the internet. It seems more important that other people be able to verify this information (I also have letters, etc. to back up what I have said here) for themselves. Besides for the money they are charging, the agencies should be policing themselves if they are serious. However, there is probably so much of this type of scamming going on, they probably don't care. 

Should you have need, please contact me at Stephen, P.S. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. Anatoly Neverov. Quite possibly, he gave his life because of his outspoken manner against these scammers. From this reader, Thank you Mr. Neverov, whereever you are. Your work lives on. 

Elena Koushmanova (Ekaterinburg, Russia) 

I was scammed by this woman--as were at least four other men. Name-Search the web for more details. I foolishly sent this woman money to travel to the USA to visit me. She never arrived. I also paid for her to  vacation with me in Europe and all she was concerned about was spending money on herself. She may have just pocketed the money. I cannot believe how many scammer women there are in Russia! I lost over $2000 but I do know of other men who lost much more to Elena Koushmanova. She is about 32 years old, blond hair, green eyes, has a son of about 11 years old, named Dmitri. Some pictures of this scam artist are attached. The picture 20000510142553.jpg appears in many Russian bride sites. Stay away from this woman! 

Elena Yambaeva (Tyumen, Russia) 

I was looking through your site and noticed that the emails I have received are virtually identical to others listed. 

Elena's emails were very seductive and she had requested $315 USD for a VISA and was checking into airfare from her "mum's" sister in Moscow. Her last email indicated her grandmother just had a heart attack. 

Attached are excerpts from emails and photos she sent.

5th email - 1 Nov 

Hello Bill, Today was a hard day for me. I had a tough time solving a problem for work. When I had break I looked outside the window and saw how cloudy the day was. I looked out the window, my mind was filled with many thoughts, many questions. I wrote you a letter there, I had paper with me and I started to write. I just wrote the first thing on my mind. 

6th Email - 4 Nov 

Hello Bill, I like to read your letters very much. They give me a lot of pleasure. Every time when I receive a message from you I begin to understand that you are very nice person. Day by day I take our communication more serious. I consider that the most important thing between a man and a woman is complete trust. I hate when people deceive each other. One of the most important parts of the relationship between a man and a woman is the moment when one of them has to express his/her consent to a greater relationship 

7th Email - 5 Nov 

Hello Bill, I was very glad to receive your letter. When I was reading it by the end my eyes were full of tears of happiness. I start to believe that we need each other. I visit Christian Church often and dream inside about our relationships and future meeting. How are you there without me? My longing about you increased very much. 

8th Email - 7 NOV 

My dear Bill, I need you very much!!! I love your last letter, which touches the very intimate strings. It is still in my heart and in my soul. It has charged me with very warm feelings and reached the bottom of my heart. I'm ready to exchange my life for a possibility to be with you. I'm alone here without you! 

9th Email - 9NOV 

Hello Bill, I am as always very happy to read your letter. You are my beloved, my love, my dream! I extremely need you like you need me. I wish to be close to you, to feel your breath and your lips.

I want to feel your tongue, your breath. 

10th Email - Sun 11 Nov 

Hello Bill, I have just received your email. I liked it. I start to take an example from you trying to obtain your characters. I'm trying to be also open as you with everybody. It makes communication easier. Do you agree? And it makes me simpler to discover my nature to you. My Boss cannot recognize me the last days. He said that something had changed me. What I really like in you - your three sources of love: mutual confidence, sharing and pardoning. In other words - "loyalty" each time when I receive letters from you. MY address: Zarechniy Prospekt, 31-73 Tyumen, RUSSIA 625000 But please do not send anything valuable because Russian post has no good reputation. 

11th Email - 13 November, 2001 

Hello Bill, I'm very glad to see and to read your wonderful letter. Your letters warm me and give energy for all day. My mother noticed that I LOVE you very strongly I do not know why it is so but it's the truth, I love you so strong that I cannot live without you. Your letters warm me whenever I feel lonely or longing. It becomes very boring without you and I want to see you sooner very much as you want the same. 

12th Email 

Hello William, Today I had serious conversation with mum. She is better and said hi to you. She does not have any objections if I would go to USA. She wishes happiness to me.

But I love you and completely believe you. There is a firm in our city, which deals with visa registration. They charge 315 USD. It is unbelievably high for me. But it is so! Visa is arranged during 1.5-2 weeks. I know also that there is ŕ governmental visa department. They charge a bit less money, however such visa is prepared from 0,5 to 1 year and it is not yet known how it will work. 315 dollars are necessary to buy visa. This visa is valid for 90 days. Money is better to send on system Western Union. There is location of Western Union here: Close Jaint Stock Company Bank "Diplomat" Uritskogo st. 36, Tyumen, 625000 RUSSIA  My name is Elena Yambaeva. My mother's sister works in Moscow in an airport. I'll email her and ask her to find out all information about air ticket. She can get ticket with discount. 

13th & Latest Email - 18NOV 

Hello Bill, I haven't a good mood today. Unfortunately my grandmother became very sick. She had a heart attack. I have to leave you for the next week. I'm going to the village on Monday. I have to look after her for the next week. I hope she will recover soon. Please don't be angry that I'll be unable to write you for this period. But as soon as I come I'll write you. OK? Kiss you many many times Your Elena 


Elena Volodina 

I want to thank this website for preventing me from being scammed. I was contacted by Elena Volodina from dating After reading the letters she sent to the other men I was floored. They were word for word. She told me in other letters that she was a virgin and wanted to be with me. She talked about trusting each other and how she could not stand us not being together. If it was not for this site I would have believed her. Watch out guys!!! THANKS, Would be sucker in N.Y 

Irina Koslova (Yoshkar-Ola, Mari-El, Russia) 

I think this site and the stories that go along with it would make a great story for dateline, 20/20 or 60 minutes. I wonder how many of us get taken and never come across this web site! 

This couldn't have come at a worse time. I'm unemployed and divorced within the last year and was really not much into dating when this one appeared. She told me she had found me on friend finder. 

This one got me for 500.00. She used the name Irina Koslova. A name I later found to belong to a Russian artist. 

The story started off just like the one with Charles. It appears as though she has had some professional photos done. (Probably with the money she got from the last fella) In fact , the first letter is identical. Hmm…. Will he nibble ?

Irina Kozlova (Yoshkar-Ola, Mari-el, Russia) 

I am a 42 year old male who was hoping to find a nice looking woman to create  a family. I was contacted by Irina through Friend Finder. After a few weeks of sending mail and agreeing on her coming to see me I sent her $440.00 through Western Union for a visa and passport. I then was attempting to set up airflights and could not get her to cooperate. I then wouldn't hear from her for days. She then wanted me to send her $300.00 so she could get to Moscow to fly out. I didn't send her anymore money. She then contacted me a week later saying she could not remember her password to enter her e-mail box. She gave me a new e-mail address of I wish I knew about this blacklist beforehand. I'm just to trustworthy of a person.

Second letter from the girl: 

Dear Kjell Thanks for your nice letter and photos. It was very pleasantly for me to know that you have liked me. I have spent these days in thinking about you! I hope you are sincere and serious about this because I would like to pursue a relationship and see where it leads. I have never done anything like this so I have know idea what the next step is but I do know that I want to know you better and to meet you. We can meet each other this winter. I shall be very glad if you will come in my native city. Some words about my family. I live with the parents while I have not the brothers and sisters unfortunately, but our family is very friendly and intelligent. My father works on local TV, he is the professional operator. He frequently shoot me on a videofilm (there can be I can send you the video about me and my family). My mum is the doctor in children's hospital also. To my passions I can concern reading. I always loved the literature: usually I read Russian classics. Besides, I like to listen to good music, love my friends, who are dear to me, like interesting conversations with new people. I enjoy relaxing sound of vawes on the beach and long walks during the sunset, I like the bright sun and the moody moon, animals and warm spring wind, to dream and to think…so I love life and try to enjoy every minute of it, which God gives us. Kjell, before our meeting we can find out each other better in our letters. I want, that you have found out slightly more about me. There is so much to know about each other as well as the fact that we come from such different parts of the world. I like my city and my country, all my friends live here and I enjoy by dialogue with them. In my native city we have white night in the summer - it is very beautifully. At the night also lightly as well as day, only sun does not shine. However in winter we have very short day. I very much love summer, sun and easy clothes. I love to float in  warm water. Except for training I give a lot of time to sports employment. I love swimming and step-aerobics and I think, that it will occupy the important place in my life always. I'm go in for scuba diving during 6 years. Now I'm swimming only for pleasure and maintenance of the form, and some years back I was swimming for achievement of sports results, that is it was the daily struggle with minutes, seconds and with itself. And this sports have learned me to discipline and persistence, but I am romantic and pensive and the strong man's shoulder beside  is necessary for me. I would like to enjoy life to the fullest. Life is short and every minute of it is worth living and enjoying. Also, I like to think and I have many dreams..?. One of the dreams is to meet a wonderful man who will be my best friend and love, with whom I can share the rest of my life through good and difficult times. I hope, that you will become this man for me. I also dream to have good, worthy work always and it to benefit the people. I always dreamed to learn to speak on English, as it is good, as well as in Russian. I have fallen in love in English, when I studied at school. I think, that I can normally read and write on English, but to speak fluently and easy, the practice is necessary. I'll finish this letter. Write me soon and tell me more about Norway, your life, your family, your work. Julia 

The third letter from Club Alina: 

Hello Kjell We must inform you, that Julia Alipatova (ID: 4599) called today in our agency and was interested about continuation of correspondence with you and about you. We have assured her, that your correspondence will be soon continued, as soon as you will make payment.
