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.

Adriaan (South Africa)

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.

Al'fiya Mukhametsadykova (Zvenigovo, Russia)

I am a 24 year old male, recently separated and have three children. I joined and received an e-mail from a member "Hyevnica" from Monrovia, California. She asked me to e-mail her at Both the profile and yahoo address have since been deleted. She replied to me from and slowly established my trust through pictures that actually have a digital timestamp of 2003. She claims that her name is Al'fiya and that she is a teacher. She claims to live with her mother, who is also a teacher, and her grandmother. Our correspondence seemed to be going well, but she often seemed to avoid answering my questions. I offered to visit her and she declined, saying that she did not know me that well and that she would come to visit me. In the back of my mind, I am wondering how a poor Russian schoolteacher can afford to come to Germany. At this point, she started to e-mail me daily about how she looked forward to her trip. Finally, on July 3, 2007, she mentioned that her travel expenses were going to be $850 and she only had $200. Obviously, she needed $650 from me. I launched an internet scam search and came across Natalya Leuhina from Omsk, Russia, who uses pictures of the same woman in my pictures. I do not know who is really behind "Al'fiya," but I would like to keep others from the same fate. If asked to send money, beware!




Hi love alex!

I am glad to read your message and to learn, that I can hope for your help in payment of agency. Dear, I feel a little inconveniently.

It will be for me 850 $.

My dearest love Dave!
Hope you doing very good. I wish that you doing very good always
because I love you so much!

I want to be with you always! You the man of my dream. All my life I
searched such man as you. All features of characters which I see in
you I want to see in the man of my dream. I have made a choice - it is
YOU! I have made my choice by my heart and head. I think about you all
time and I understanding that I want to be with you very much! You the
kindest and careful man in the world. You the most decent, fair , and
honest and such man I searched for all life. I enjoy our
correspondence and I feel that I want more than just letters, I want
to see you, to embrace and kiss you. Letters cannot give you all my
feelings and emotions. There are no such words In the world which you
will read in my eyes and heart. Real meeting help us to know each
other better and open new feelings of our love. I am very serious
about it. And I want it most of all. I want to give you all love,
tenderness, care, caress. I want to see you always happy, to see your
smile. Through letters I can not much but I shall make all for you
were happy when we shall be together.

I was in cash departments of airlines yesterday and asking about cost
of the tickets. It's really sad for me that tickets can cost so much!
I asked about cheapest tickets that exists. Its costs about 870 US
dollars. Here is information about cheapest tickets what I have:
Depart Surgut (SGC) 5:30 am
Arrive Moscow (SVO) 6:15 am July,30
Airlines: Aeroflot-Russian Airlines 878
Depart Moscow (SVO) 7:05 am
Arrive Chicago (ORD) 2:43 pm July,30
Airlines: Air Canada 9065/873/507
Connect in Frankfurt (Frankfurt Intl.), Toronto (YYZ)
Its really big money for me. I did not know how much ticket costs
before this moment. It is make my mood very bad. I tried to saved up
some money, its about 80 dollars for the ticket and all money for the
visa. But i have not any more. I need about 790 dollars more.

Its really hard for me to find such money by myself i shall must work
about year or more for this money.. I think that one year it will be
too long time till our meeting. I thought a lot about how I can get
such money to make us be together. I am sure that our feelings more
strongly any difficulties. It is very hard for me to ask you for help
with this problem. I never asked nothing to anybody and all my life I
fixed all problem by myself. But I cannot solve this problem only
myself. Therefore I ask you help us to meet. I understand that it is
the big money for you too but we have no another choise. My love Dave,
our happiness in your hands. Please write me if you can help us. I
dont know how to send money but if you are interested I will ask it
from visa center. What do you think about a date of our meeting? Which
is the best? Please write me your opinion. Every time I ask your
opinion because it is very importnat for me. I am sure that meeting in
person will give us new beautiful life! Hope to see you soon, With
love and kisses.

Anastasiya Sokolowa, (Tulun, Russia)

I am a single white American, 40 years old. This person contacted me on, a dating site. The profile said she was living in New York City. I wrote to the email she provided. I am informed by this person that they are really in Russia and were trying the dating site out as a joke to practice their English. We wrote back and forth. They sent me four letters before the "money letter" arrived today. It was about the third letter that I started doing a search on the name and found out about Russian scammers.
I went back over the letters, and it all fit after that. This was the typical "visa/tickets" scam. She seemed smart, and personable, but never did really answer any questions. She also doesn't know her own bust-hips-waist size, and actually tells you this. This seemed strange to me. 

I was told to send $1000 directly to Anastasiya Sokolowa via Western Union, with an address in Moscow (Moscow,109479, Bratislavskaya street, build 35,room 78) I was also given the famous "the bank here won't help me but they told me to ask you" line. She supposedly bought a nice dress beforehand and was down to her last $400 since her family paid for everything else.
The ticket was for $1290. And it has to be round trip according to some law that was adopted this year. Oh, and she applies for a J-1 Student Visa and then plans to change it to a regular visa when she gets to you. Claims it's faster and easier to get. 

I decided to simply report her to as many sites as possible. I don't know what I'm doing after that yet.

Bill hello, this is the info I have got from agency and I think I have the
problem and it seems to me I need your help because I must get this flight. I hate to imagine if something goes wrong, I have done too much to lose all now.I know it sounds like I am pooroutsider but you see I have not time or somebody to ask about help, you know my parents gave me all that our famile could collect for my travel.
I hate to ask but now I don't have any other choice.
The things that everything is getting more exspensive because so many people want to travel abroad and they tell I need to have round trip ticket,it is new rule from this year. I thought that I have to bye only one trip one. I can promise that I will return all the money I borrow as soon as I can. I will get salary and collect the sum I own you, it is only money, and I think that it is not too hard for you to help me ,you see I have such chance only once in my life. I know you are kind man and I do hope you will be able to help me.
I was in the bank to try to ask them about credit but they tell I have to have something to stay them and I have nothing to stay because I have only a few dress and shoes, some parfume and it is all I have, and small gift for you from russia with love. I was so silly, yestarday I bought nice night dress, it is so exspencive here but I could't travel to you because it is a shame that it was on me, I have never seen such wonderful things for women.
People in the bank gave me an advise that if I have good friend (I told them about my problems and you ) that you may send me money very fast,they tell that there is the system western union and it works very fast, I am not sure I know how it works but they tell you need only my name and address here in moscow and I have to have only passport to get it in any bank of moscow and nobody can get money only me, I think it is good way. 
I have about 400$ yet and I need about 1000$ from your side (roundtripticket,visa,interview and some papers yet). After getting money I will make all payment and I will have an interview, it is nesseary thing.
And I have good news too, they tell that I can stay longer than three months I can stay about six months for first time. 
I will have to change the date of my returning flight only and I want to say that you have not to worry if you don't like me or something in my charachter I will not disturb you, you know I will have rent room to live and it is only your wish to share your time with me, and money is money, I will return it all in any case.
I am sorry to send so dry and cold letter but I am getting crazy to think that you can just don't reply and I will stay here without any result of all my hopes and dreams ,and hard work too.
you know my address here in moscow is Moscow,109479, Bratislavskaya street, build 35,room 78. You know my full name is Sokolowa(last name)Anastasiya(first name).
You should put this info on their list and send me info that you sent it.
well I will close this letter I am a little tired and feel not too well, I know that it is hard decision for you because you know me not too well, but dear please help me and you will be not sorry of it I promise. Please don't leave me alone in hard minute I will pay the same when we meet.
And I will have paper with my and your names when I will be in your airport I don't want to miss you, Kiss you with hope Anastasiya.
