Feedback about Russian Brides Cyber Guide's Black List

Thanks for your help on this site! I had decided early on that I would be happy to correspond with her so long as there were no requests for money. When the last letter finally arrived this morning, I knew something was up. 
Thanks for assuring me that this was a scam after all.


Scamming may not be a crime, but stealing money is. I am going to nail these guys, if its the last thing I do. Thank you for fighting the good fight. We should all stand together to rid the world of this scum.

I would like to thank the creators of this site and especially one contributor to the site, namely Shane, who wrote a profile on a Miheeva, Marina aka Margo. You have saved me a lot of money and a lot of grief. The thing to remember about dating site scammers, and this one in particular, is that even though they may correspond with you for weeks - they are essentially lazy. They may respond to the general gist of your e-mails but generally do not respond to specific details, such as questions, comments or photos. They also have a tendency to re-use a lot of the same material that has worked for them in the past.


I did some more digging and found this website which made my decision a no brainer. I replied back to her with an article that I found about scammers being arrested in Russia. I haven't heard back from her since. She's good...almost got me to go "all in"... Thank you to this website and whoever started it!


Anjella first contacted me through We have been emailing for about 5 weeks now. She made no mention of money until last week. Thanks to you I was wary and di not send any money. She asked for help with tickets after the visa cost her more than expected. I found her IP address and did a google search and found your site with almost identical emails. Copy and paste with some personal questions answered at the top. Thanks for saving me some grief.

Ekaterina Grigoryeva (Yaroslavl, Russia)


I'm a single man of 39 living in Ireland. In March of this year, I started receiving mails from a Russian girl on the website who wanted to get to know me better. She was a very good-looking girl and not having heard at that stage of any Russian scams, I responded to her and took her as genuine. After a few letters correspondence, she started to fall in love which seemed a bit sudden to me. After a month, I suggested that i come visit here in Yaroslavl but she thought this to be a bad idea and suggested that we meet somewhere halfway and that maybe meeting in Paris would be a good location as this was the city of her dreams. Then she explained how she had a job which didn't pay well and would need money towards the ticket which was 400 euros. By this stage, I was besotted with this girl and sent her money to the above name via the Western Union - this was the only time money was sent. However after receiving this, she claimed she needed an extra 1400 euros to show the French Embassy in Moscow as proof of sufficient funds for her trip to Paris. 
At this stage, I began to get suspicious so I started checking out her details. The address she gave me in Yaroslavl does not exist - the street address and postcode are both in the city of Samara in Russia, which is nowhere near Yaroslavl. I contacted the dating website and informed them of her details - her account was since deactivated. I never contacted her again. As can be seen from her pictures, she is a very beautiful girl and it is very easy to be taken in by her - see email below in which she asks for the 1400 euros. 



Hi my love Colin!

I want to inform you unpleasant news which have very much upset me. Now I came in Embassy and the visa wanted to receive,in embassy to me informed, that my visa is ready, but I cannot receive the visa now because I should show money. Per every day of residing at your country I should show 100 Euro. My stay will last 1 month therefore I should show 1400 Euro. As soon as I can will show money all well and I can receive the visa. I could not take my visa while I cannot show the sum 1400 Euro. 

Now I do not know, that to me to do. I should asks this money you because I cannot find other output from it of a situation. 1400 Euro I should show in Embassy and at the airport. I cannot find this money now, therefore I should asks them you. More I have nobody to address!!! I very much hope to receive your answer quickly. I do not know that to me to do now and I very much worry and I suffer. I very much ask you to answer me quickly. I hope we can, find an output from the given situation together. 

We very for a long time waited our meeting and now when we still had some days, up to a meeting, I hope that all will be good. You are very dear for me and all my dreams are connected to you. Now I one in the big city, but I know you near to me because I feel your presence and your care. 

I wait the answer from you, therefore I ask answer me at once as you will receive the letter!!!! 

With the biggest love Katya!

Marina Atabaeva (Nizhnekamsk, Russia)

This is the third or fourth girl from Russia who has attempted to scam me. I am a divorced man 54 yrs old and she approached me on Yahoo personals. (She was deleted after she contacted me so I'm sure I wasn't the first she tried to contact). I knew almost from the beginning that she was a scammer because she used pretty much the same script as another girl who tried to scam me. It took about a month for her to finally ask me for money but below is the final letter she has sent me and I am enclosing a file with all the various pics she sent of different girls including American TV star Marg Helgenburger. I hope this helps other men also.

Western Union has been notified. Please advise me if I can be of further assistance.

Subject: Problem

Hi lovely Chris! I am glad to read your message . I feel itself it is a little inconvenient. Because I had to address to you for the help. I always counted myself the independent person, which itself can solve all problems. But, this time, I could not all to take into account and was mistaken that I can pay all travel itself . When I travelled earlier, it costed for me less. But I it is happy, what now I have you Chris, - the person, which can come to me to the aid and help me in a life. After ours acquaintances, at me varies sensations of. Earlier I counted myself the strong and independent person, and it was pleasant for me to feel, that I can care of myself. And now I feel simply the woman who requires support. But it is pleasant for me, to feel beside strong the man which protects me from all excitements of a life!Chris, I informed a place of arrival to you to the agent and he expected the staying charges for me. It will be for me 1450 USD. Here tickets, insurance, road up to the airport and some other necessary charges. 

With me have still remained money, after payment of the first parts of cost. It near 600 USD, and now is necessary for me, in 3-4 days near 850 USD to pay in agency the second part of cost travel. I hope dear, that this money not difficulty for you and you can help to pay to me, in 3-4 days, 850 USD in agency . Lovely, I hope, that i did not make to you difficulty by the haste. Probably it is not planned expenditure for you. If it so, not become angry about me please! I very much miss

He informed me, that they do not accept, for payments, bank moving of money to the account, from private persons. They accept such payment only from the organization at travel by groups. Therefore I to me too should make the second part of payment by cash. The agent has told, that in our city some banks are engaged in moving of money from other countries. he has told. That they make it quickly, it demands for them about one day. In our city
some systems for moving work. It " Western Union ". You need to go in bank in which is office. In bank to me have told, that such offices are available in each city, therefore for you the problem will not find it.

Maria Gogoleva (Omsk, Russia)

I was contacted through IOL dating online, a South African based dating service. It went on for about 3 weeks. She told me that her full name was Gogoleva Maria and that she was tired of Russia and all the corruption there and that she wanted to get married and move away. She seemed very sweet and sincere, telling me how she was all alone - that her parents had passed away at a young age. 
She said she was getting annual vacation and because of all the corruption in Russia, she need 1430 Euro to get a visa an necessary papers. Apparently, her friend ' Katya' has special connections and she can get a visa AND international passport within 3 days??
I did not inform IOL dating about her - so nothing was done.


Hello my love XXX

You can't even imagine how happy I am to find letters from you! They make me smile and think that I'm not alone. That I found my Man and that someday I'll have you by my side! This thoughts make me happier than ever, . And I suffer so much when I don't have a chance to come into the internet cafe and write you at least few words, I will do my best to come here every day and write you! 
My full name is Gogoleva Maria. You know what has happened to my cell, so I don't have a contact number anymore. But I'll try to call you as soon as possible. I want to hear your voice so badly!!! I have already found the phone card that I need, I just can't find it in nearby shops. So I got to look for it around the city. I hope that we'll talk to you tomorrow, as I'll have time to go looking for it tomorrow. 

I really thank God for meeting you,It's really hard to express feelings with words,heart speaks with actions in my case. I feel that all my tenderness is collected through all this years, and now it's ready to flow, and overwhelm you and me when we meet. Till then the only sad thing about us is that we have to write each other, and can't look into each others eyes, hold each others hands, give this little sings of love and attention. I'm in the mood to relax and think about you and the distance between us. Everyday I spend thinking how to organize the trip to you, . I may take vacation till the end of July, so that I'll be in vacation in August. I've asked my friend about the preparations, she works in travel sphere for 5 or more years, so knows everything well. She told me that I will need international passport and visa, and tickets. Actually that's all. but everything is done for money. I may apply for international passport by myself, but this will take 2-3 months. Can you believe it? First you apply for it, in a month they tell you when you are to give them all the documents and only after that they tell you when it's ready. And Katya, my friend, may do international passport with the help of her organization only for 3-5 days. Isn't it great?! And only than I may apply for visa, and buy tickets. The whole sum will be 1432 Euro. It's pretty much for me. Now the main problem for me is to find the meanings for all this. I've asked almost all friends. Unfortunately they can't help as well - everybody has plans for vacation. I don't know if it's ok, if I ask you for help, I feel myself pretty awkward to ask for this, but I don't have other choice. Please tell if you are understanding me and willing to help me, I need to know that you are ready to meet me and to connect our lives. 
Oh my God, I really don't want to go home. But I got to finish I guess.
I'll be waiting impatiently for your letter, 
Hope you had nice weekends, and wish you to have nice day today.
With all my love,
