Ekaterina Derkach - Samara, Russia

Dear Sirs,

I would like to warn everybody about Ekaterina Alexsandrovna Derkach also known as Katya. She found me on a dating site and sent me an e-mail. She described herself as a good honored girl from a modest background in SAMARA. She said that she had alraedy applied for a tourist visa and was travelling to Moscow to get the visa. We chatted on-line for about two weeks. She proffesed her love for me after only a few days. When in Moscow she called me saying she needed US$420 before customs would let her leave, this was to be funds to cover her stay. I thought I would risk it and sent her US$350 via Western Union. The day she recieved the money I got a further call and e-mail asking for another US$165, unfortunatley I fell for the floods of tears over the phone and the very real looking visa document so I duly sent the money again by Western Union. Two days later I recieved an e-mail asking for a further US$1400. At last the penny dropped on my side and I refused. I have not heard from her since.

Elena Nagieva - Cheboksary/ Moscow, Russia 

I am a 40 years old single man from Wales in UK. I was scammed by this seemingly innocent and good looking 27 year old girl from City of Cheboksary, Russia. She contacted me through an Indian Matrimonial paid site where I had posted my profile. I responded to her initial interest and soon we were exchanging emails literally very day. Our communication went on uninterrupted for just over three weeks. All in all we wrote 17 emails each between 10/04/2006 ( her first email ) and 04/05/2006 the day when the money was sent. Sometime in the second week of our acquaintance, she requested for money for visa and travel purpose, to visit me in the UK. Her story was that her parents died in tragic road traffic accident few years back and she has one elder brother serving in Army. She says that she is a teacher in City of Cheboksary and that she was staying in Moscow temporary for a break and to meet her brother who is stationed in Moscow. 

I took her and all her emails as very genuine and agreed to send her money in USD currency. She asked me to transfer 435 USD through the Western Union. At no point I had any suspicion ( only because I was not aware of any such scam tactics). However, the Western Union did warn me about the risk and suggested that i check the google site to verify about this girls history but I still went ahead with the transfer and sent the payment ( partly because she didn't fit a profile of a scammer and partly because I was too embarrassed to look fool by admitting misjudgement of a Russian girl )

The money was picked up on 05/05/2006 and to be fair to her, she sent me 4 more letters over the next ten days - thanking me and telling me about the progress of her visa and travel papers. Her last letter was on 14/05/2006 and she failed to reply to my further 2 emails. I have been since reading the scam info and reports n the relevant websites and having this inkling feeling that I too have been scammed in a very similar fashion and lot of other guys have been, by the eastern European girls looking for a foreign husband. 

I hope my story and her pictures will help other potential 'victims' from being scammed of their money. I wish I had seen and read contents on the scam sites. Following are some of her letters, hope it helps you to avoid being lured.

Letter 1
Hello xxxxxx! I am very glad that you have written to me the answer to my message. I shall be very glad to get acquainted with you if you will get acquainted not against too with me. I do not love big words and probably therefore I prefer simple dialogue between people. I want to smile and tell you again: " Hi xxxxxx! " Because I very much hope that you too will be very glad to receive my letter. It is very pleasant for me that you have written to me the answer to my message. xxxxxx you already know my name, but in my message I have not written to you how many years to me. At present time to me of 27 years. With huge interest I want to tell to you slightly about myself. I know that the first impression about the person remains on long. Therefore I hope that you remember me the lovely and good woman. (I want to smile). Whether xxxxxx I do not know my photo is pleasant to you. But I shall send to you my photo that you had more full representation as I look. I think that appearance of the person should not have the big value... I have one character trait which it is pleasant to many people is sociability. Probably it because I find common language with people easily and easy. I very much like to see on the person of the person a smile and laughter. Nevertheless I have very big lack - I'm afraid very much to quarrel or swear. At such moments I usually test fear... xxxxxx you probably will agree with me that quarrels do not result to good in dialogue between people. I think that the most important is the mutual understanding... Now I write this letter and I am interested very much with one question. xxxxxx at present time you have any loved woman? If you want, you may not answer this question, but I very much hope to read the truth. I too shall answer this question. Now I do not have which man I would like. That in the future I very would be desirable to trust me a meeting the love. Through letters certainly it is very difficult to test love to which person never saw, but I think that ordinary friendship will suffice me even. Sometimes the friendship between people may mean very much much for two people and I sincerely believe in it. xxxxxx now we are on very big distance from each other. At present time I am in city of Moscow. I am sure that you know that the city of Moscow is capital of our country. Actually I was born and I live in city of Cheboksary. The city of Cheboksary is approximately on distance of 800 kilometers from city of Moscow. It not the big distance. My city certainly small, but very beautiful. xxxxx with this letter I shall send you a photo of my city. May be to you will very pleasantly and I shall be very glad. In city of Moscow I shall be not long because I have arrived to this city only to have rest some time. I hope that at you impressions about our acquaintance will stay very pleasant and I want I shall tell you that I am very glad to learn you better. Only with very pleasant impressions about our first acquaintance, Elena.

Letter 2
Hi! I am very glad to receive your letter again dear xxxxxxx! I very much hoped for your answer and I very much would like to tell you about it. I at all do not regret that I have sent you my message for the first time when I have decided to get acquainted with you. If fairly to admit, I at all did not read your structure at that moment because it seemed to me that only you can tell to me about yourself when you will write to me the letter. I always very much liked to read letters and I am sure that accidents make persons by happier. (I want to smile). I always very much liked to read letters but to write letters slightly difficultly. It probably because we never saw with each other before. Though now it is very easy for me to write to you the letter. I very much would like to present you as the man to realities. xxxxx I want to tell you that to me always was very interesting to get acquainted with new people and to learn something new. Once I have read in the newspaper about that that each month very many women marry men which live in other countries. The last year one my familiar woman has married and now she lives in Estonia. I read some articles about that that men abroad very much want to have acquaintance to the woman from Russia. It seemed to me is very interesting. As I read that education of men in other countries very much differs from education of people in Russia. I thought of it much and I necessarily to get acquainted have decided to try with somebody through the Internet. Now I at all do not regret about it. It is very interesting to me to have dialogue with you xxxxx. There may be it destiny. I very much hope to meet the man which will steal my heart and the love will present me... I live one and I frequently think of it. I want to ask you. xxxxxx you like women which like to sing? I not casually want to set this question. I always very much loved music and many my familiar speak that at me very beautiful voice. When to me I was boring frequently I include music and sometimes I sing a melody of music which I listen. I am able to play on a guitar and on the piano. Very much it is pleasant to me when men concern to the loved woman with understanding and yours faithfully. Sometimes very much there is no it in daily life, but I always try to smile and I can forgive mistakes to people. My some character traits are such. xxxxxx there may be it will interesting to you. xxxxxx may be at you there are still any questions. I not against answer all may to arise at you. I love sincerity... In the following letter I shall try to tell to you about my work and that I search in life. Now I want to smile and tell you: " Bye xxxxxx! ", but I shall recollect your letters and I shall THINK of you. Elena.

Letter 3

because I shall be in my city of Cheboksary some days. You know the Western Union about bank system? My brother sent me money through the Western Union before New Year on my gift. I have received money next day after he has sent money. I think that this system is very convenient. When I shall receive money I at once I can return to Moscow lovely xxxxx... I will need to collect things before my travel. What weather reigns now in your country lovely xxxxxx? I want to set to you one very serious question. xxxxx I should understand something about life in your country. We are far apart in the given period of time. Today in the morning of me has visited one idea and I want to share with you my ideas. xxxxxx I never had travel to your country and I do not have familiar people from your country. I know that it is necessary for me to know about principles of dialogue between people in your country. xxxxxx I know that probably will be difficult to answer you this question, but I very much hope that you will help me with it.

I am sure that you will help me and I very much hope that you will be near to me always a difficult and happy minute. I want to find happiness near to you lovely xxxxxx. During several years I feel that I live monotonous life. When I meet my girlfriends I in increasing frequency I notice that our themes of conversation are declined to themes of marriage and to themes of serious relations. Some my girlfriends have already married. Some my girlfriends have already divorced. My best girlfriend has divorced from the husband and there was one with the child. It is very difficult for her, but I understand that the destiny gives beautiful gifts not frequently. My best girlfriend brings up the son to which now only 3 years. I think that at her very beautiful and very good son grows. I very much hope that she will meet the man of the dream in the future. And I sincerely wish her happiness. But I know that I need to build the life. I dream of family because now I feel very alone. I think that to the woman very difficultly to live without the man. I very much want to feel care and attention on the part of my loved men. xxxxxx I prefer a constancy in my life. Now I do not know that waits for me tomorrow. Each morning I wake up and sometimes I am pursued very much with strong feeling of loneliness. Therefore I am very happy that I have got acquainted with you xxxxxx. You have presented me hope and very many pleasant emotions after our acquaintance. Therefore I want to admit to you that I want to be with you and you should know that you are very necessary for me. I do not want to lose my feelings... Your Elena only.

Now I understand that spring dreamed me. (again smile). Spring gives to people of a smile and warmly is usual after long winter.

Larisa Kudryaceva - Vjatskie Poliany, Russia

I met this person on the website iMatchUp. The user name is lar36rus and listed as from Topeka Kansas. The letters received were very convincing. Enclosed is the one asking for money. I have contacted imatchup and to this date they have not done anything.

Letter 1

Ronald From: Larisa
Date: 05/22/06 07:49:13
Subject: I love you!!!

Greetings my loved Ron!

It is very pleasant for me to receive your letter today!!! Also it is very pleasant for me to hear from you, that my love to you is mutual. Today, I with impatience waited for that moment when I shall write to you this letter. Unfortunately my love, at me for you is two news: one good, and another bad. I think, that I shall tell for the beginning good news. In last mine the letter, I spoke you, that my father has left in Moscow and that I asked him find out how I can arrive to you. Today at night he has returned from Moscow. Since the morning at me conversation in this occasion has taken place with him. He has told to me, that has found out, everything, that it is necessary for me that I have arrived to you. In embassy to him have told, that for me visa K-1 (it is the visa of the groom and the bride) is better. On registration of this visa leaves from 2 months and even till one year. Unfortunately the main thing of a condition of this the visa is an our meeting and consequently this visa at once disappears for me as we did not see you yet. In that case, for me visa B-2 visa of the tourist is better is. Validity of this the visa from 90 till 180 days. Registrations of this visa are engaged many travel agencies in Moscow and consequently it not so difficultly to receive as K-1. Through travel agency, on registration of this visa usually there leave some days. After I shall come to you under the visa b-2 I can receive K-1 or a green card which to me will allow to be with you for ever and never abandon you. To my father have told, that for 90-180 days, I can easily renew my visa B-2 in America on k-1 or a green card and we can be together for ever. And now I shall speak bad news. I have counted up and have come to that on registration visa B-2 415 dollars are necessary for me. Into this cost enters:
The visa b-2 - 150 dollars;
It is dear up to Moscow - 120 dollars;
Residing at Moscow and hotel, travel on Moscow, with the account for 4 days - 145 dollars. Lovely, I do not have such money. Unfortunately I work in my still more few time and now I have test time during which I receive about 150 dollars a month. For me is not present the slightest chance to find such sum of money. For me 415 dollars very big sum of money. After conversation with my father I asked money him and mum, but they have told, that at them now very heavy financial position and that they now I can not help me. They have suggested me - And what if I shall ask the help you? I thought of it much. Loved, it is very a shame to me, but I do not have other output how to ask this money you. Ron, I ask you that you have sent me this money as it is necessary for an our meeting. I ask you that did not think, that it is necessary to me from you only money, as it not so. To me are indifferent money as all that is necessary to me from you it is your mutual love to me. But unfortunately at my financial position, I am compelled to ask money you for an our meeting. If it is possible, I ask that you have sent me of money today or tomorrow and I promise, that for my part I shall make everything to be with you as it is possible more soon. My love, I promise you, that after I shall come to you I when I shall not abandon you and we shall work together above visa K-1 or a green card. Today I went to bank and to me have told, that the most good translation system of money from one country in another is the Western Union. They have told, that if you will send to me of money through the Western Union I can already receive your money in some minutes. I have asked them, whether I should you give the address or any coordinates of bank where you should send money - they have told, that are not present. To send money through the Western Union it is not necessary to have neither bank accounts and nor what coordinates of bank.
You should send money for my full name LARISA KUDRYAVCEVA, the city of VJATSKIE GLADE, RUSSIA and I can receive your money in any bank of my city where there is a Western Union. Also they have told to me still, that it is very safe translation system of money and that except for me who cannot receive your money which you have sent me. When you will send me of money, to you should give MTCN (these are 10 control figures of a remittance). With the help of yours mtcn (which you should give me) I can receive your money.

Ron, my loved, I with impatience shall wait your answer to this letter. I really hope, on your understanding and on a fast our meeting.

Your love for ever.

Valentina Dudina - Saratov, Russia

Hi I saw your website today and want to let you know that might be the latest victim of a money scam involving a russian woman. About myself. My name is Bharat and I am a 40 year old canadian citizen and I first met valentina dudina or Valaya as she called herself on This is an indian matrimonial site . i was not seeking a russian woman but "Valya' responed to my profile and our correspondence began. This was a month and a half ago. There was nothing in her initial emails to indicate that she was a scammer. she would send photograph with every letter and looking at herr letters and her pictures, is till find it hard to believe that she might be a scammer. She looks like the "girl next door" Just two weeks ago Valya claimed she was in Moscow and needed $1250 U.S as an exit fee to come to see me in my country. She claimed she would be there in two days. At first i told her that I dindnt have the money she needed. (This was true). The next day she sent me another asking for just $600.00U.S This led me to believe she was genuine and I din't want to lose what seemed like a chance of a reationship for a few hundred dollars. Well to make a long story short I sent her $600.00 last week and have not heard from her since. I have contacted shaadi and they h ve offered to help. ima attaching pictures of her including a copy of a passport id below are some her emails ( she was in Moscow at the 
time I transferred the money.)

Letter 1

Letter 2

Greetings Bharat.
I as always am glad to see your letter. Bharat today I had visiting church. I went on christening of the son of my girlfriend. This big event, for my girlfriend. Bharat I was glad, in church there were many people. Small children were afraid and cried. Them dipped into a tub with sacred water. Sacred father read prays. I worried. After christening I asked the sacred father to listen to me. Bharat I have told to him about our correspondence. He has listened to me very attentively, and has told, that there is no distinction as our feelings even if they came from the Internet have arisen. Bharat I have met with approval for my trip. I am very glad to this fact. Bharat I so am afraid to lose you. I do not know why I am attended with such ideas. Probably it is simple excitement. Bharat it is my first big trip. I shall fly through all world to you. It is very interesting. Bharat I worry the new place, new people a little. But I seem to me due to you can quickly will accustom in a new place. Bharat I not bad speak on the English language therefore to me it will be easier. Also you will teach a little me. Bharat I the good pupil. It seems to me, that in a month I can speak in English very well. Bharat at me so much new feelings. The sea of emotion. I cannot well write the letter. I am ready to fly to you, even now. Bharat I was simply impossible to transfer it words, the happiest woman on light. I have found the person, and this person you. Bharat I want to proceed to my trip to you. Bharat I can receive my visa. I want to fly to you in the near future after reception of the visa. I think, it will be healthy. We can walk together. Bharat tomorrow early in the morning I want to go in the company of travel and to look cost of tickets aboard the plane. Bharat I saved long time of money. I think to me this money for purchase of the ticket will suffice. I worry very strongly. Bharat wait for my information concerning trip to you. Bharat I want to be with you. You my dream.I wish you good day.
Yours Valya.

Letter 3

Hello my beloved Bharat!!!
Bharat I had visiting customs service. To put it more exactly, bad news, it is unpleasant news for us. They have told me, that when I'll go to the board of the airplane, I'll need to have no less than 1250 dollars in pocket and document, confirmatory this. Because I'll arrive to you with the visitor visa and I'll go as a visitor. And this money is needed for a life in the for 90 days (since validity of the visa is 90 days). You lose nothing Bharat! Because when I arrive you, I'll give you this money. Without this money I'll not be released outside of Russia. I have money for tickets, but I do not know where to take 1250 thousand dollars. They has told me that we need to buy round-trip ticket. I was very wondered, when she has said this since I was going to buy one-way-ticket, because it is cheaper than round-trip ticket. But she has told me, that with visitor visa I'll not be released from Russia with one-way ticket. This is explained that now there are too many emigres, wishing to leave our country, who do not return to Russia, and live with illegal rights. With ticket round-trip there are determined warranties that person will be back into his country. Especially, this is wide-spread for young women, not having children and relatives outside of Russia. Also she has said that I'll need to to make the insurance. I have to pay for my ticket here because if you will buy ticket, I shall have to buy insurance, which costs 460 dollars. But if I shall buy ticket here, then cost of insurance will be included in price of ticket. I went to the airport, 2 tickets will cost 890 dollars. Bharat, now I am very upset after these news. I know Bharat, that money is much not only for me, but for you, too.I did not want to ask for you about money, but I really did not know that it will be required extra money. If I would know, I would discuss first with you this, after all I don't have any extra money. My love, I'm in Moscow only in two days from you; if you believe me and want me to come to you, then send me 1250 dollars through MoneyGram, or a Western a union for my name Valentina Dudina and in two days I'll arrive to you and we'll be the happiest mate in the world. I even begin to think that our meeting in person is impossible. I begin to feel myself worse Bharat. Now Bharat, we need to pass the last step and we'll be together. I love you Bharat and want to be only with you!
Your Valentina!!!

Letter 4

Greetings Bharat.
