She said that I must go to representation of United States and ask about receiving visa. I went to it and asked about visa. They said that I must wait about six month and I was very confused, I asked about faster way to receive it, they said that it's difficult to do because many people want to receive it and I must wait but they said that if I want to receive it during two weeks I must pay for it two hundred ninety two american dollars. I was very confused and surprised. I went to my mother and asked for help, she said that she have only six hundred roubles it's her last savings, I have only three hundred sixty roubles, and I can have only about thirty american dollars. I want to meet you Don all my heart and I believe you want it too. I trust you completely and you must understand that I have share of risk too, but I feel that I love you all my heart. You show the large interest to me and I think we can have the future I think it's more than real, it really!!!

So, I need two hundred sixty two american dollars for visa, it's the step to our meeting, the big step which helps us to meet faster. I really want to see you soon Don, I dream about our meeting, I wrote you about it. I went to bank and asked about the most reliable way to sending money, they said that the most fast and reliable way is western union. I've asked about this system. They say that the sender must know name and surname of receiver, the country, the city, and maybe the address of western union where the receiver will receive it. I've asked about reliable they said that it's simply and reliably: when sender send it, sender receive the secret ten digits code which he must to inform to receiver. The receiver must have identification of person, so I have it. I sure it works. I asked your help about our meeting because I love you Don, I think you want to see me too Don and I'm very happy.

Then I  told you that I love you and we have appeared in a sleeping room, we kiss each other and I heard your pleasant voice and you say that you love me too. I heard the beat of your heart, our bodies were together. It was a great evening. I kissed your neck, your lips your body and you do it too with me.

I love you all my heart and my heart says that I love you Don! I know that I have problem with money and I ask you help. I think that the money is only paper, which was thought up by people for economic relations. I think that the money is not applicable for personal relatives, sometimes the money brings evil to people, at our country very often people kill other for money, it's awfully! The money is not important to me much, I want only happy life with my love. I never had much money in my life and my mom too, and you can trust me: we did not worried about it, we live and were pleased to each happy moment of our life.

Letter #5 

Hi the my dear friend Don!!! The Siberian pel'menis are done of the test and from meat Today I had bad day at school. I have found a new technique on grammar of Russian. I think that this technique would allow children to understand grammar better and fastly. But the chief of school has not approved it. It(he) began to shout at me and to speak that I am engaged not in the business, it(he) began to offend and humiliate me. It(he) spoke that there are experts who create the special program for studying Russian. I very much was upset after conversation with the chief of school. My mood was gone. I left in the study and cried much. I thought that I shall leave work. Mine Schoolchildren to see as I pay and have asked me why I pay. I have told them that I shall not work more with them. They very much were upset and began to ask to remain me. At one mine the schoolgirl tears on eyes have appeared. I might not give up to them and have decided to not give up work. Your letters this only thing that cheers up me. I like your letters, when I read them I feel as we approach. We are Far apart. But it does not prevent our dialogue.

I was a member of several dating sites and Oxana had contacted me on the site in September of 2000, we had corresponded for a year and 2 months. 

I think February 16th was the first time she asked for money but it may have been before I don't have any letters from before February they were lost. 

She game me the e-mail address of the supposed travel agent but I told her I didn't trust them after I talked to them so I would send money to her. The money went to Oxana Curdiucova at the Brest western union branch, I sent a total of I think it was $3200 over a 6 month period ending the end of October of 2001. 

She was scheduled to fly into Seattle the 25th of November 2001 at 3:45 PM but I had gotten an e-mail from her the 22th saying something about a security problem and that she would talk to the agency BelTourBrest Friday and get back to me then. I didn't get any message back so I continued on like she was flying in so I went to the airport on the 25th and was there for 3 hours waiting at the baggage pickup area had her paged, talked to customs, immigration and finally the last person to get thru immigrations to find out she wasn't there. I sent her an e-mail when I got home, thinking that the security issue was the problem… FOOL. She responded back on the 26th with that she was in a car accident and sent pictures of the car hooked up to a tow truck. Needless to say I was upset on several levels. She say's in her letter that there was another car involved in the accident and that she had to pay for damages to both cars 

The three picture I sent as you can see there is one that is of who ever it is when she is younger, she said this was with her friend and cousins, other with her friend and the other is her mom, supposedly. Even with my suspicions I was convinced when I saw the pictures with her mom and the one where she is younger with the cousins and friend. 

I wish that I had found this site a year ago and fortuantly I found it now before I tossed more money and spent more time with this woman. 

Brian Carlsen 


Hello my dear, Brian ! Unfortunately, I had the most terrible day in my life. Everything was good from beginning. My working day finished and I took a car of my working mate. We gathered together with my friends and went to the countryside. It's a Mercedes, 1995. We had wonderful time. It was getting dark. I drove at 70 km/h. I was at the crossroad when I had an accident. It happened another car was on the main road and at all speed I beat the car. And I broke that car and my car. I was shocked. I couldn't understand, what was happened with me. Nobody suffered in my car. Only I stroked my head. My dear,Brian I have concussion of the brain. I am feeling very bad. But the driver of the second car suffered. Now I have many problems; two cars are broken. I don't know what to do. All our plans destroyed at one moment. The police came at once. They took my drive license. No I have to repair the cars and pay the money for moral damage. Other wince the police will have criminal report then I have to forget about you and our future. I'll not to be able to leave my country during 5 years. I have big problems, I don't know, what to do, I don't want to leave. xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />Help me my dear Brian . We can be together. But this accident's made my life hard. I want to be with you. The only way is to pay for repairing and moral damage, I'm so. Sorry to make many problems for you Brian . I hope, you'll understand me and don't leave in such a difficult moment. I'm so distressed, my love Brian . Write me soon, I need I need you now more than even. Kiss you Brian . Yours Oxana. 

Dear Brian, Thank you very much for your nice letter. You make me feel so happy Brian so special. You want to meet me dear. Brian for me to travel abroad it's needed to get a Visa and passport to purchase a tour, because our "Wise' president made a law that the women who 45 and single can not leave Belarus if they have not a tour. So i went to the travel agency in Brest yesterday when i got your letter and found out some information. You may contact them directly if you wish and find out the information yourself. They have a computer and e-mail. Here it is : They plan trips from Moscow I must tell you dear. Brian i love your letters they are so interesting. Each letter I get from you i feel your heart dear. You have so much love to give, it's like a fire burning in the distance for me, it warms me. I hope I'm worthy of your love. You know, I'm just a mortal woman, nothing special. But for you, I want to be the best woman to make you happy always. I know, people make mistakes, but dear, we'll forgive each other when we sometimes fail. Love is not truly strong unless it's strong enough to withstand any stress. Our love will be strong I'm sure. We've found each other in the distance, & our hearts are connected, my love. You know, in wedding vows, people say ''for better or for worse'', I'm sure if we see each other at our worst we'll still love each other, because our love is strong. My dear, you make me feel so wonderful inside, I hope I make you feel the same. I want to love you, dear & be loved by you so much!!! I'd like to explore the world with you by my side. Just imagine… the hills of Rome…the streets of London…Paris in it's charming beauty…etc…etc… I dream of your kisses, lips, heart… Yours, Oxana. 

Polina Logenko (Ukraine, Dneprodzerjinsk) 

Hello, I wish to report the following story for your consideration.. 

My name is Patrick, I am 40 years old, a widower, 2 children, owner of (2)  high technology companies, educated with BA, BS and MS degrees. I have been  alone for nearly 5 years and with the support and motivation of my children I began my search for one special person to share my life and to start again. I know her as Polina Logenko Ukraine, Dneprodzerjinsk, Lenina av. 71-a ZIP/Postal code:51929 Her email address as of 12-02-01 was: 

Once I found that she was also know by other names, one: Anjela Oleynik, I  could not just stop writing. I needed to send one last letter of good bye which I sent today. 

I  hope you publish the following letter: 

Hello my treasure, Polina: Thank you for your letter of December 1, 2001. In a very short time I have developed a great affection for you. I really thought that you had the  qualities and characteristics which I have been in search of. This is far beyond your extraordinary beauty. I have read your letter over and over again with horror as well as tragic sadness. I wish I were closer to help in your time of need. If needed I could have been there in less than two days. But you did not ask. I personally thought we had a chance. Because of who I am and the responsibilities I have, it was necessary for me to protect my business as well as personal interest. I wanted you to be with me and for sure to share the life you promised would exist between us. Upon receipt of your tragic letter, I was prepared to forward whatever you said that you needed. 290$ USD was a minor amount to bring happiness to your face and to help your mother who dies before your eyes. My people suggested that I restrain from sending you anything. As I said, I did have very serious intentions and dreamed of the day we would be together. On a small investigation of Polina Lognenko (by my people) of Ukraine, Dneprodzerjinsk city they found nothing at the moment and as of today they will stop their investigation. However, There is a lady born July 17,1979 from Kherson, with your exact image and methods. Her name is Anjela Oleynik - it has been confirmed this is you. My heart and emotions broke. Perhaps Randy of California would be pleased to know you are fine. Also, Jason of the U.K. would be pleased to hear that your mother did not die as you described when hit by the truck. But she is now dies in your arms when being hit by the same truck but a few months later. See your letter to me of 12-01-01 O, 

my lovest Patrick! I can't write much time.. I have very big grief. My mum passed a road... Behind a rudder there was a drunk driver... There was a failure. When I hear about this awful incident, immediately has gone to hospital. A condition of my mum very hard. The doctors have said, that it is necessary immediately to make operation to her . It's very expensive, and our medicine is in a very pitiable condition therefore I must pay for operation. But it costs $970, and I managed to collect only $680. I try to find the stayed money, but I can't. It is necessary to make operation immediately. If not time, I would find stayed $290 but I haven't time. I can ask of the help only you. My mother is very dear for me. When we were left by my father, she was the unique people who always cared about me and understood me. Now I am obliged to make all that in my forces to help her. I can not look as my mum dies on my eyes! Please, if you can then help me. I will pray for you. I was in bank and there is Western Union money transferr system. This is only one fast way that I  know. I have found out about transferr: You need my full name Polina Lognenko and my adress Ukraine, Dneprodzerjinsk, Lenina av. 71-a ZIP/Postal code:51929 I need your full name, address and 10-digital money transferr control number (you must take it on your Western Union operator). If you can help, please, help me as soon as possible! I feels very bad now. I'm in despair! I'm waiting for your answer and pray. Love you. Please take a moment and look to the following letter sent a short time ago to Jason in the U.K. 

O, my lovest I can't write much time.. I have very big grief. My mum passed a road...  Behind a rudder there was a drunk driver... There was a failure. When I hear  about this awful incident, immediately has gone to hospital. A condition of  my mum very hard. The doctors have said, that it is necessary immediately to make operation to her . It's very expensive, and our medicine is in a very  pitiable condition therefore I must pay for operation. But it costs $370, and I managed to collect only $140. I try to find the stayed money, but I can't. It is necessary to make operation immediately. If not time, I would find stayed $230, but I haven't time. I can ask of the help only you. My mother is very dear for me. When we were left by my father, she was the unique people who always cared about me and understood me. Now I am obliged to make all  that in my forces to help her. I can not look as my mum dies on my eyes! Please, if you can then help me. I will pray for you. But I don't know how you can send money quickly. Once I saw on the TV advertising Western Union system. I don't know as it works. Maybe you can found out that it is necessary. Here all my data: My name is ANJELA OLEYNIK. My adress is Ukraine, Kherson, st. Lenina 47, ap.11 If you can help, please, help me as soon as possible! I feels very bad now. I'm in despair! I'm waiting for your answer and pray. Love you. 

Polina or Anjela, do you see something similar. 

It is now a question as to whether either woman actual exist, for near were at the address you gave in either of your letters.

No doubt the photos were extraordinary. Beyond my imagination. It is truly your loss. For your game and the attempts to take only a small mount of money from those men (like me) which you prey on are the true victims. Is nothing less than immoral and you are a thief. The list is much greater than Randy, Jason and Patrick. Remember that Karma is. Soft kisses, the one who still loves you. Patrick 

Larisa Strizhakova (Lugansk,Ukraine) 

I am glad that I can finally share all of experiences- as you know most agencies that offer free first e-mail never show those letters to their clients. they send you stock answers that arouse your interest, and then ask you for money to continue the correspondence. I have particularly been disappointed with many of the free agencies. many of the girls they advertise will redirect you to their agency and then request $100 to join the agency, then after a week or 2 another $100 to help pay for the translations. 

There is an agency in Lugansk "queen agency" they have a girl on there Lora or Larissa. she sends all the same letters to all her people and then they start asking for money and she doesn't even exist. i flew over to meet her, and as soon as i was leaving i got an email that her father needed surgery in another town and had to leave. as soon as a left she resurfaced. here is her pix and her name and the agency.. be very careful, the letters are well read and very believable. 

Lora's address. Her address  is Ukraine 91005 Lugansk ul.Tsiolkovskogo, 32 Her full name is Strizhakova Larisa Vladimirovna office #38-0642-55-43-10 Marina Grebennikova Queen Marriage Agency Ukraine, Lugansk Magnitogorskaya Street, 39
