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.

NAME: Anastasiya Volkova aka "Lora"
ADDRESS: st. Mira Protvino, Moscow area, Russia 142280
ALIASES (OTher black list ID): Larisa Gordeeva 
EMAIL USED: Lora1978lonely" <>

I am a white American, 45 years old, divorced. I wrote to someone at Yahoo Personals, who wrote back to me, but whose profile was deleted the same day we began correspondence. I found that strange (and also strange that I never got an answer as to why). So, I approached this one with caution, and let it play out to see if it was the typical visa/ticket scam, and if money would be asked for. After about a month and a dozen letters, it was...!

Very early on, I setup a new yahoo account, and initiated contact as someone else. "She" wrote back immediately, and I began receiving an identical set of letters to that account, literally identical! I cut that off after the 10th letter or so. There was no question by then that it was a scam).

I also searched the blacklist, and found a person who looks very like this one, but posted a little over two years ago under a different name!
(Search for Larisa Gordeeva.) This one is a serial scammer!

I continued the correspondence long enough to get her "western union" contact details. I have since stopped corresponding completely.

I have notified Western Union of the details.

NOTE: The first image is the one used in the Yahoo profile.

But me Yana has told, that the sum of money can help me small, she will add to me, in a case if you will agree to send to me the basic the sum of money. My lovely, only do not think, that it is easy to me to write you such things to you. It is very inconvenient me, that to me to have to ask you about the help. I did not think
earlier, that at me to develop such situation. Please, do not consider me impudent . at me simply there is no other exit. Money is not necessary to me from you only, it is the sum for us, for our meeting . for our happiness. Believe to me mine <NAME>, I love you, and I require you very much .

Irina Bourdina (Malaja Topka, Russia)

I communicated back and forth with Irina for about 2 weeks through private email. I don't know how she got my e-mail address.
She fed me a story about coming to America to look for a better life and asked me all kinds of questions and told me all about herself. In the final letter, she asked me for money to pay for part of her plain ticket. After some searching, I found this exact same letter on some anti-scam sites. 

Of course, I have not sent her any money but I am continuing to play along. I plan on wasting as much of her time as she has mine.
In the end, I'll give a long winded speech about how what she's (or they) doing is wrong. That's the best I can do with it.

The guy from the agency explained to me how their system works. It is instant worldwide money transfer system. 
All you need is my name and my surname to send me the money. Once you do this ,  I'll be able to pickup the money in any local Western Unuion office in Moscow. We need to do it pretty fast, because we have no time till my intervew, if everything will be all right I will be on this flight!

We should change only the date of my returning flight. Or I can return earlier if something is wrong! 
Here is more info about Western Union. You find any local Western Union agent, go there and send money to my name. 
Western Union will ask you for my full name and address in Moscow where I am staying at. Once you give them all the info they will initiate the transfer.
