Feedback about Russian women Black List

A couple of years ago, when I was new to looking for a partner via the internet, the Russian Women Blacklist saved me from being scammed out of quite a sum of money. I vowed to return the favor someday by posting something that might save another unsuspecting guy some $$$. I just hope that the other guys she is stringing along have enough sense to look here!

Scammingmay not be a crime, but stealing money is. I am going to nailthese guys, if its the last thing I do. Thank youfor fighting the good fight.We should all stand together torid the world of this scum.

I was not in the pursuit of buying a bride much less loveand had never heard of mail order bride until now. I honestly felt I was doing the right thing because I believed still in all the good things in life. It was my belief mail order brides was all part of old westerns but not something that existed this day and age. Now after research I have discovered that some vile evil persons use that concept to prey on honest singles whose only real interest is to find other serious minded singles in the pursuit and fulfillmentof life long dreams and steal their money by making misleading and false promises.

Anna ILCHENKO (New Sokolovo, Russia)

Hi, just wanted to let you know of another name to add to your scammer list. I am just divorced, father of 2, and have an ad posted on Yahoo Personnals as well as I have been contacted twice through Yahoo by scammers, and I was contacted through Match.Com by this person, using the as her contact address.

I received the first message earlier this week, and the third one yesterday. As much as I wanted to believe these were true, I know enough to be aware of the scams. Sure enough, checking her name on Google this morning, I found the entire text of her last letter that had been sent to someone else. As her name isn't on your list, I thought you should now of her.

Her 1st Email, sent through Match.Com:

I like your profile and would be glad to talk to you.
Since I am not often to the site please write me at
Hope to hear from you sooner.

In her profile, she stated that she was from Minnesota, was 33 YO, and had an advanced degree in engineering.

My response:

Thanks for dropping me a note, tho I am curious as to why you are writing someone who lives so far away. But no matter, I don't mind talking with someone is a similar situation. Your profile certainly sounds nice, but what does a post-Masters in Engineering do in the lower part of Minnesota? I am afraid that, other than passing through the airport, I know little about the upper mid-West. I grew up in New England, moved to Seattle after graduating from college, and have been here ever since. You seem to share many of the same interests, tho I admit I haven't played tennis in many years - got burned out on it playing in college. Did play raquetball for several years, unitl my playing partner got married and had kids.
Well, drop a note here when you have time - looking forward to hearing from you,

Her 2nd Letter:

Hello!!!! Have a good day.I do hope you remember me because I wrote you recently and you replied to me.
I have met you on a dating site I am sorry that I couldn't reply earlier. 
You see I live in Russia and I was busy arranging all travel 
preparations . I was in Moscow to book my interiew for the trip to the USA, it took 
almost two weeks to travel to Moscow and back. You know that it is my first time I try correspondence with 
a man in a virtual space.
I am not a very good user of the Intenet and I do hope that I will be lucky to 
meet a good man.
I guess I need to explain why I do it.The thing is that I will work abroad for 
three months or so and I would like to meet a nice man
to be my guide or just to be a good friend to spend time with while I am there. I suppose 
it is hard enough to live in some foreign town without friends and besides I have never been
abroad. You know I've been liviving in a small town here in Russia all my life and I am just
afraid to be lost. 
Besides I would like to see a real life (not some TV shows) and it is 
impossible to see a real life without a person who knows all sides of the life. And you should also know 
that I don't want to live in 
Russia because I don't have any chances here,it is hardly 
possible to explain in a few words but I want you to know all my 
plans. While being in the USA I will be working in
any shop or be babysitter in some family. I will know the details later. Besides I love English language 
and being in the USA, it will give me a chance to improve my English.
The agency helps me to get the visa, work permission and all travel 
documents and they will
help me to get a job.It is their business and I will pay for their 
service.One of my friend worked in USA for three months last year,and she was so 
pleased and she is going to repeat this trip again.
She has men right man in Chicago and they are good friends now and he 
is going to marry her if everything is all right between them.
I am coming to the USA due to the special programm for young people who want to work 
abroad and I think it is the right
way for me. I am lost here, and hopefully I will be able to change my life.
I am full of plans and different dreams. You should know that I have brown hair 
and brown eyes.I am sure that you will be not disappoined to 
meet me in 
the real life if we meet. At least I hope so.
Well,I am finishing this letter and I do hope to get your reply pretty soon. 
Maybe after reading my letter yu will find me a little crazy but I am not sure I know the right way
to meet a good man without real meeting and you know it is my 
first try though the Internet.
I will leave my town in a few days or so to fly to Moscow again to 
complete all the things. It is said at the agency that I will work all day and I think we might share 
evenings together to get to know each other better. If you have any interest to meet me 
I will be 
more than happy!!! 

I just don't want to be alone in the evenings, and I would like to be sure
in advance that somebody waits for me! It is just a woman wish!
I will tell you all the details about me and my life. If you're also single, you may be with me for a few 
months or so .... Who knows???! 

With best regards from Russia

Anna ( this my name )

My Response:

Thanks for the explanation - it is quite the adventure that you are starting on. I do not know if I would have the courage to do something like that. Are you going to be coming to Seattle? If you are, I would be glad to be your friend, and I have a good group of friends that will help you feel welcome here. US is quite different htan the TV shows, and the newspapers, let the world believe. 
So, according to your profile, you are 33, have a degree in engineering, and are 170 cm tall. Is this all true? 
I am a bit wary of Russian women, as I have been contacted by two Russian women in the past 6 months, through dating sites. The only thing they wanted from me was money, tho one pretended to be in love with me after one week of writing back and forth. However, they asked for money , and I found their names on a web site run by a Russian woman here in the US that had them listed as known scammers. It is hard to know who is really at the other end of the line on the internet.
However, if what you say is true, then I will welcome you as a friend. Good luck,

Her 3rd Letter:

Thank you for your reply. I was very glad to see your reply in my inbox mail. 
That would be right if I tell you more about me and my life because we have a chance to meet in real life 
and thus we need to get to know each other better and you please also tell me more about yourself, ok? 

I am just a simple and ordinary girl with my own interests, hobbies and tastes. 
I guess I will start from telling you about things which 
also want to know from you, so you'll see my questions.
As you know my name is Anna and my last name is ILCHENKO. 
I am 25 years old and on 25 September I will be 26. I am about 168 cm tall and my weight is about 53kg. 

My body sizes are 96-62-91cm. I have brown hair and brown eyes 
which you can see from my photos. 

I know that many women abroad have possibility to improve their bodies and faces 
and they look so beautiful. Unfortunately it is impossible here in Russia because even though 
we live in Russia, this country is still far from civilization. 
But I still think that natural beauty is far better. 

I have a family and next time I will send the picture of my parents, me and my very small brother. 
Unfortunately we live in a two-room small appartment and it is not very 
comfortable and not convenient. Honestly there is nothing good in the fact that I was 
born and live in a small town of Russia. 
There is no chance for a good living and it is very hard to fnd a job here. 
All young people leave towns and go to big cities searching for work but unfortunately there is also 
no luck for them in big cities since nobody is waiting for them there. 
Living in Russia is living "all by myself". It is a good but cruel school of life.

I hope that in the future I will work as a fitness trainer because I have a cetrificate and I am good at this. 
I 've been working for two years as a fitness trainer and it was the best time in my life. 

I don't smoke and drink socially, my preference in alcohol is red wine, 
but only a glass or maybe two. I tried to smoke when I was younger. Silly me! 
But I think almost everybody try to smoke when you are a kid, right?
I try to take care of my body and face as much as it is possible. I wasn't born yesterday and 
I know that almost all "men love women by their eyes", I mean this or that way woman's 
appearence is very important for a man. 

Speaking about my trip. I will come to the USA this month but I don't know when exactly, 
I know that I will have all documents to travel very soon and I will travel to Moscow 
again to complete all travel preparations. 
I will get a visa and buy a ticket and then fly to the USA. I even don't know where exactly 
I am flying because I haven't decided yet. I can choose almost any state to stay that 
is why I need to know the name of the nearest international airport to you. 
I just want to have somebody waiting for me at the airport and not to be alone there. 
I will fly to the USA right from Moscow and I hope you will want to meet me at the airport and 
be my guide and besides it would be great to meet with you face to face and spend some time together. 
I know that it is not an easy thing as it might seem but there is nothing impossible, right? 

I will be more then glad to know wthat you understand me and my thoughts and you are 
with me in this question, but if not, then please tell me that you're not 
interested in me and don't want to meet me, ok? 

I think I shoud close this letter. It is not good that I don't have a computer at home 
and have to send my letters to you from the Internet cafe which is far from my home. 
I wish I could talk to you on the phone, but unfortunately we don't have possibility for international calls 
( I can't call you and you can't call me because we have here four-digital phone numbers). 
It is possible to make international phone calls only from big cities. 

Ok, that is enough for today. If I didn't tell you something which is important for you or maybe missed something, 
don't be angry. Just ask me and I will answer for sure. 

I will be here in the Internet cafe on Monday morning because I have a lot of preparations before 
going to Moscow. I hope when I come here, I will see one more letter from you.
Pleae write me and don't forget me!!!

Anna Ilchenko ( in my last name the first letter is "i" and the second is "L")
my home address:
New Socolovo town, 12-4

If you want to find my town on the map, it is located not far from Biysk and another big city is Barnaul.

PS Please send me as many photos of you as possible so that I will know you at the airport.
And one more thing. I have a very important question for you
- do you like strong drinks?
- if so how many and how often? 

At this point I did a Google search and found her exact letter on another website:, after googling her name. No money asked for, no money sent - no harm done here. Just wanted to get her name onto your list for warning others. Keep up the good work.


Ekaterina Romanenko (Tver, Russia)

Dear Sir:
I am sending you a report on how I was scammed by a lady on You may publish it and it is my pleasure to stop all these scammers who prey on honest citizens. Thank you

Here is my report compiled as requested to be added on Russian Women Black list.

Ekaterina Alexandrovna Romanenko ,
Her email: (kate sorokina < Tver Russia, scammer
Her address:
Her Address:
Country: Russia
City: Tver
Last name: Romanenko
Name: Ekaterina
Middle name: Alexandrovna
Adress: st. Podolskih kursantov, 14, app. 26
Index: 424000

I am 48 yrs old, single, white Canadian, self-employed Graphic Artist who corresponded in a relationship which promised to be heaven but ended up as hell.

I contacted this girl on starting July 12, 2006 up till Sept.8, 2006.. She declared her love after so many letters and she wanted to marry me and needed money to buy her insurance on the flight ticket and a sum of money required to pass customs.She needed 870.00 USD for insurance at first and I sent it to Ekaterina Alexandrovna Romanenko via Western Union..Then she needed money to show customs that she could support herself for 30 days. I sent 1500.00 USD which would show that she could support herself. Again, I sent this sum to her Ekaterina Alexandrovna Romanenko. The MTCN # was emailed to her on both occasions. She confirmed receiving the amounts. On the day of her supposed arrival Sept. 1, she said her mother got a heart attack and could not take the plane. Then, she told me her mother had died and I requested for my money and she said she would send it via Western Union. She emailed me and gave me a MTCN # which turned out non-existent. I contacted her and she told me the bank could not send the money because my address was wrong. Then she said she would sell her apartment and come to my country . We were suppose to get married but never did. We do not need an address to send money because I have sent it to her just with the name and mtcn # and the country. She never wrote back and I realized then that I have been had.

I contacted the website site on 2 occasions and they never responded to this nor offer any help. I will pursue this matter up to the embassy so these scams can be stopped and prosecuted accordingly.

1rst letter:

Hello, dear friend!!!
It was so nice to open my mail box and to see a message from you, from the 
corner of the world! I am not very good at computer, and I am surprised to
understand that now I have an opportunity to communicate with a person who 
so far from me. The distanse becomes less great, when people know each other
better. And I am sure that very soon we will know each other very well! 
as for me I am a kind and open-minded girl with a good sense of humor. And 
about you? How can you describe your character?
Well, now it is high time to tell you about me. My name is Ekaterina, but my
friends call me Katia. As we are friends already you can callme just Katia, 
like it more. I am 28. I live in the most beautiful city in the world. My
native city is very dear to my heart, I was born here. is situated not far 
the capital of Russia. It is not as big as Moscou of course but Tver with 
beautiful lakes and rivers, green gardens even in the centre of the city 
more beautiful. friend, and what can you tell me about your city? Were you 
there or you moved? Is it big or not and where it is situated?
And now look at the photo and say how do you find me? Frankly speaking, I 
to send you my best photoes to make impression on you...Did I manage to do 
So, look and tell me. But on the photo you cant see my growth and weight. I 
170 cm tall, and my weight is 54 kg.
When I look at the map of the world it seems to me so big!!! I find your 
and understand that thousands and thousands kilometers separate us. But it
doesnt frighten me! On the contrary, it is very exiting to communicate with
somebody with whom you have never even talked! In the process of 
we will understand our characters, the differences between us. But I am sure 
will have many common things. The first one - we are active people, which 
stay at one place! We try to change our lifes, I like this position. Every
person must be a master of his life. Our world is so big, there are more 
than 6
mlrd of people in it and we are so different!!!
I would like to tell you that I have no computer at home, and I write to you
from the Internet club. So, you understand that I dont have opportunity to 
to very often, but if I am interested in a person, I will do all my best to
communicate with him... I know English rather well, I write letters myself 
speak fluent English. I graduated the Pedagogical University. But anyway it 
a foreign language for me, may be sometimes I have mistakes. So, ask me if 
dont understand something. And very soon I will be sure to improve my 
with you!
Well, it is all for this time. Please try to answer all my questions and of
course tell more about you.
Your new friend Katia.

6th letter: money asked the first time

Hello, my prince Johnny!!!
My darling, again I can say to you that you lit in my heart fire of love 
written me a letter. I hope you feel the same when you read my letters. I 
try to
express all my great love to you in them!!! And I am sure that you answer me
with reciprocity!!! Do you feel the same, my unique Johnny?
I know that you the person I need and I really want to be next to you every
second of my life, to feel your presence, to hear your sweet voice... My
darling, fortunately nowadays everything is possible. We can be together 
necessary just to buy a ticket!!!
My darling, I never traveled so I went to the travel agency as I promised 
my prince. I really managed to know all the information about my trip to 
you. In
fact it appears not very difficult. So, I was told that if I want to go to 
country and want to do it fast, I must have a passport (170 $), there is no
problem to do it, it's very quickly, then tourist visa (it is available for
three months, 215 $), then two-way air-tickets (980 $), insurance (870 $, 
person who goes abroad must have it obligatory because some troubles may 
place during the voyage). If I have my tourist visa I'll be able to stay at 
place for three months but if we want to continue my staying with you I 
think it
will not be a problem. I think it's possible to prolong the visa. I was 
told in
the agency that they had such cases and everything was OK!!!
Well, about my trip to you. Naturally I had to tell my mother everything 
my decision to go to you. She said that she understood everything. She knows 
as nobody in the world. I said to her about my plans and she supported me. 
told me she had some savings as she wanted to buy furniture. But she is 
ready to
help us because she is very happy for me and for you. She told me that I 
was so happy and beautiful. So I can pay my passport, my tourist visa and my 
way tickets. Unfortunately, my sweet, I cannot afford to pay the insurance. 
counted everything very neatly but I have no money left. I asked my friend
Marina to help me, but she refused. She has left her work and she is out of
money now. In fact, my darling, I do not have anybody to ask to, so I do not
know what to do. For our country it's really a great sum of money and 
does not possess this money. Among my acquaintances there are not such 
My unforgettable, I can hope only at you. I know that you really want me to 
next to you, so I want to ask for your help.
My daring Johnny, I really dream of you all the time and I need you 
Tonight I have already seen you in my dream. You were next to me and you 
hold my
hand. When I woke up I burst into tears because you were not next to me.
My dear after I shall stay with you, I believe in one year we could invite 
mum to live with us. I think she .s was very happy, but while she will not 
with us I shall contact it each days off.
My love you are not a lunatic you are simply in love as well as I. We test
identical feelings, I do not seem to you mad? You ask when my birthday. My
birthday on August, 1. I hope we shall meet this day and it will be
unforgettable for both of us.
Thanks you big for such fine poems, they so like me.
My fantastic Johnny, we really have all the chances to be together!!! I was 
in the agency that it's possible to make all the documents very quickly. So 
wait for your answer with impatience and I want to know your opinion.
I hope that everything will be very good. I kiss you tenderly, yours Dove

see to it, that you shall never have need of anything, other than that which 
desire. I will be yours forever, and proudly so. From the day you first
responded to my very first letter, up till this very moment, I had never 
the joy and happiness, and contentment in my life, that I know now, and

love no other, and I will not rest until we
are together forever. I will do whatever it takes to be together with you

Johnny (Montreal, Canada)

Ksenia Chercazianouva (Cheremkhovo, Moscow, Russia)

I am a single guy, white american, 48, living in California. I was contacted by "Ksenia" on She is no longer listed on the dating site.
I have dealt with many scammers in the past (none got any $$$ of course) but this one had me going. Right up to the point where she asked for money. I told here that I would never send her any money in several emails to her but her responses were like she never even read my letters (typical). I even sent an Ecard that was never opened (again typical of a scammer).
The pics are all over this web site: 
After doing some research I discovered that the pics are stolen from a real girl, her name is Valeriya and she lives in Odessa, Ukraine:
The real girl DOES NOT place profiles on the dating services and is not searching for anybody. If you are contacted by anyone using these photos, it's a scam! Even if "she" says her name is Valeriya and she lives in Odessa, remember: this is NOT a real Valeriya, but her evil clone. 

Since this discovery, I have taken the advice of and decided to start making this person work a bit and waste some of their time as they have wasted mine. I will be sending them to the western union office a few times just for fun. With no money there of course.

1st Contact was on Sept 6, 2006 thru
The letter is no longer there as the profile was deleted.

2nd contact Sept 7, 2006:

Dan! I'm so happy to receive your answer! It was good to meet you on 
site! You made my day! I've never tried to find someone in Internet 
soon I will come to your country to work there, so I will have a work 
and a permission to work. My friend worked in the USA somewhere near 
Lauderdale two years ago. She worked in amusement park from 11 am till 
6 pm
and from 7 pm till 3 am she worked in a bar. Of course she was always 
but she made very good money! I think I can do it too! Now she is in 
working for 3 months. She wrote me she liked to work in the USA better!
I want to find a man who can tell me about the life over there and 
of course something more then just a friend!!! I don't have a
boyfriend so I'm free for new adventures!!!
I'm in Russia now, but soon I will leave Russia to make my trip so you 
forget about our distance.
I've never been abroad, only in the South of Russia, the Black Sea,
Sochi. I like warm climate ))
According to my visa I can work in your country for 3 months, I can
prolong it to 6 months if I want. After 6 months staying over there I
can go home or try to get a green card.
I think my level of English is quite good, but although it's very
simple. I can't read philosophy books in English or business books)))
Anyway I want to improve my English while staying over there. I write
and speak English by myself. My spoken English is good too. We have
Discovery channel here in English (my friend has cable TV, so I come
to watch it!). I like this channel so much! Very interesting!
I'm sending four pics for you. One is me with my dog Lima. I like
animals!! Another one is me last winter, the next one is me on the
table at my friend Katia who had discovery channel, I wrote you! And
the next one me near the river, it's not far from my city.
I live in small town here in Russia, and I decided to find someone by
Internet not to be alone when I make my trip. The life is different in
every country and I think it's hard to live there when you don't know
I can do some simple job as a waitress, or to work in some shop. And
later when I improve my English I want to find a better job!
I will start my trip from Moscow, I will go there to pass English
tests and have an interview. I think everything will be OK!
Working program helps me to get the visa, permission for work and
all travel documents and they will help me to get job. It's a special
program for young people who is not lazy and make some money.
Also they can settle me with another girls from Russia and Brazil who
came to work there too, it's very cheap.
Here I can earn only about 100-150$ a month to work from mornig till
evening (my city is really small).
I think I can change my life and see many wonderful things and just
different life. I am full of plans and different dreams.
I am sure you will be not disappointed to meet me in the real life!!!
I don't have a special plan or something like that for a new
relationship, I'm open to everything! I don't want to be an abuse for
you, if you will not want me as your woman, we can be just friends!
But I hope you like me and my photos!
I had a boyfriend, but it was nothing serious and we broke up one year
ago because he moved to Vladivostok.
OK, I will finish this email... I don't know what else I could write
you in my first email. Your questions are welcomed! Please answer me
even if you don't like me, because you are the only man I am
responding to. If you don't like me I will continue my search. I hope
so much to receive your answer!!!
I hope we can have a nice communication by emails so I will know
somebody is waiting for me over there and I will come there maybe in
2-3 weeks or so! Not so long time to wait for me, really?
I hope you are my soulmate and we match each other!
Now I write you from my personal address please reply here.
Next time I can answer your questions if you have some and tell you
about my family, send you many pics of my family, also more of my 
Tell me about yourself and the place where you live!


9th Contact Sept 17, 2006 (the Money Request)
Dan! Hello again! You can imagine how happy I'm am that I already
started my trip and I want to continue it. I already feel that I
became closer to you )) I'm really excited about it!
Moscow still makes me both tired and excited. Anyway I'm really happy
I've started everything.
When I think about you it helps me to be more strong and tolerant, I
see everything is not that easy but I hope the moment of our meeting
is waiting for us.

It would be great if you can meet me in the Airport and wait for me
there. I will be very thankful to you if you can do it. If something
happens and we will not be able to find each other I can call your
phone number or you can make a paper with my name and hold it!
If you will be late because of your work or something else I can wait
for you at the Airport... I will be tired after such big flight (I
will be on the plane many hours! I'm not sure how much, I will find
out) and have some rest.
So I booked tickets and I can pass my interview only when I pay for my
tickets, I didn't know about it. I can receive my visa after I pay my
tickets so they want to be sure I have roundtrip tickets so I'm not
going to stay illegally over there. I think there rules are too
I have some money but my flight from Irkutsk to Moscow costed so much
(about 550$) because it's so far from Moscow. Of course it is my fault 
because parents told me
that I have to travel by train but I wanted to do everything faster so
I took a plane...
Anyway now it's too late to sorry.
Another bad thing yet that prices of service of aerflot (tickets)
became more expensive because of high gasoline price.
I didn't guess that everything costs so much and they didn't say
anything. They say they arranged my trip, visa and all necessary 
documents and money is only my business.
I have to buy tickets till my interview because of such rule. Maybe
you could borrow me some money?
I can't live here too long because every day I have to spend some
money for food and rent of room.
Really expensive city. The cup of the tea costs about almost two 
I think it is not too great amount I ask and I am sure I will be able 
to return it
back in a few weeks after I arrive. I will earn some money and from
the first salary I return it back to you.
in Agency they have told me that you may send it by Western Union. It 
pretty easy to use they said. I have been to the bank and they gave me
the information.
All you need is my name, my surname and address to send me the money. 
Once you do
this, I'll be able to pick up the money at any local Western Union 
office in
Moscow. We need to do it pretty fast, because we have no time till my
interview, if everything is all right I will be on this plane!
You will send me a transfer info and MTCN ( money transfer control 
I will get cash.
Kiss you many times, I am tired today,you know it is hard enough to be
in a city where you don't have any friends or relatives. So many 
different emotions.
Kiss you many times! see you soon!

Ah, silly me. Almost forgot to give you my full name and my address.

My address here (where I rent a room)
Country : Russia,
City : Moscow,
Address : Chehova 82-41
post code : 117303
Full name Ksenia Chercazianouva

I have about 300 US dollars. Please try to send about 960 US dollars
so I will be sure I have enough money for all my travel needs and
flight. I know you will try to help me!
I can't wait to hug you when we meet! If you can't meet me at the
Airport we can meet somewhere in the city, but I don't know how much
the taxi cost over there. I'm glad I have a job lined up and when we
meet each other maybe you will even want to have closer relationship
with me and maybe we can even live together someday! If you want! It's
just my dreams...

see you soon!!!please don't leave me here alone,PLEASE!!!!!!
