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.

Michael


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.

Regards

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 Match.com. 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.

Hi my dear friend Enrique.
Again I came to the Internet cafe just to get a letter from you. It always brings me so much joy to read what you write me, about your life there. May be I should tell you more about my job. As I already told you I work as a consultant in the shop of women' clothes. In general I like my job, I see and communicate with many interesting people there. But it is a hard work because I have to stay there till late and walk from one place to another. But this job allows me to have an independent life and to earn for my living. I have high education and my profession is economist of light industry but right now I have work to not my profession because I can not find a place because here are not enough companies work in this sphere… May be one day I can find my work but it would not be in our city. I have never told to you about that that I like. I love sports very much: tennis, swimming, volleyball... I love to see some extreme kinds of sports such as windserfing, skateboard, motorbikes shows. I also love winter kinds of sports: ski, skate, snowboards… And what kinds of sports like you? I do not drink and I do not smoke and I think it a bad habit though some my friends and familiar do it, but I am not offended on them and I think it business of everyone and I do not interfere with their life. I do not drink though in holidays I like to  drink champagne or a wine, beer in small amounts also is pleasant though never I take a great interest alcohol. And what kind of drinks do you like? I like to listen to music. I like various styles. I listen to different music from classical music to rock, new waves depending  on my mood. And what kinds of music is pleasant to you? I like to cook. I love Russian food, but it demands very big efforts. I think that preparation of Russian dish this present art. Some dishes demand very long operating time above them, but then the dish turns out very tasty and appetizing. Sometimes I like to eat in McDonald's but not regulary. And what food do you like??? I with impatience shall wait your following letter. Sorry but I do not have home phone at all. You know also I can not use to call to you a work telephone because it is forbidden here. I can not promise to you anything about phone callings… So please do not be mad at me, OK??? And it is a pic of me again… It was made in some club in our city. Hope you like this pic anyway...

My dear friend Enrique. Thanks for e-cards and pic!!! It was very pleasant for me to read your letter again. You know I forgot to inform you in the last letters that I single. I have never been married and I have not any kids. I am single now. I have not a boyfriend also because I can not find him… Although three years ago I have had a boyfriend, but he have left me to other girl because she was rich. I think that he has acted ugly though it is his affairs and I am not in the right to decide for him. I am not in the right to interfere with his life. Now I have no boyfriend also because I can not find the good person. Here in Russia it is very difficult for making because many men drinks and rough with girls. I am so tired to search a male for future life or just a boyfriend for myself because I am tired to be alone. But to find good male here is really difficult mission for women. And I want to love and which tendernesses so do not suffice me. I have few friends although they quite good people. We frequently meet with them on a nature and we have a rest, play volleyball and badminthon, we talk, sometimes we drink beer or wine. But I can not find a male for myself among them, because almost all my friends in pairs. And how does you and your friends have a rest? Do you have alot of friends or few good friends as me? Write to me about it because it will be very interesting to me to know it... Sometimes I like to be alone, I like to see the rain, I like to watch TV sometimes but not often, I like to read books. Most of all I love Russian classic literature. I love to read Michael Sholohov, Lev Tolstoy, Aleksander Pushkin, Anton Chehov, Dostoevsky and Bulgakov… Also I like to read Victor Hugo and Stephen King. Do you know these writers???
Miss your letters…
Your russain friend Anna

Hi my favorite friend Enrique.
Yes, I really call you favorite because I like to communicate with you and to tell you about my life. You are very pleasant for me as good pen-pal and simple friend. I called you favorite because I like to write and discuss with you on some themes which I do not discuss even with not all of my girlfriends.You know sometimes it would be desirable to me even to appear near to you and to take your hands and to look in your eyes. Your letters are very pleasant for me. Today one of my girlfriend has Birthday and I have left work earlier and have asked to  remain the co-worker for me at work. Her 3 best girlfriends came to wish Happy Birthady  to her today. We drank tea some wine and ate an apple pie.  It is 32 years old to my girlfriend today.  We have talked alot about life I have spoken few words about you. My girlfriends are very glad that I have communication with you. And how do you and your country celebrate holidays and what?  Is it frequently? My favorite holidays are my Birthday and New Year Ave, and yours??? We have the middle of winter now, I like winter but when it is not so cold, sometimes winters in Russia are very cold about –30* C and during 4-5 months a year and I do not like such weather. Mostly I like warm summer season. But usually we enjoy summer, sun and beach only 2 month a year. And here is pic for you again. It was made on one of party with my girlfriends, I am in the center as you can see... Hope you like this pic.

Hi my favorite friend Enrique.
You know when I read your letters my heart begin to beat fastly and more strongly. It feels heat and tenderness. You know I never tested anything similar and sometimes begin to think that I have more feelings to you than to just a friend. I did not tell to you in the last letter that few days ago I had beautiful dream about us. I saw that I ran on a high grass on a field. I ran long and the longer I ran the more strongly I felt heat on the body. Then in the distance I have seen your silhouette and began to run faster. I have approached to you, have taken your hands, then have strongly embraced you and you have presented me a sweet sweet kiss. I have woken up from it and my body was wet. I never thought that I shall test to you such feelings, but speak that the love comes suddenly and quickly. May be it seems some strange for both of us, but I have really had such dream. Please do not think badly about me, I only write that I really have had. And would you like to appear in my dream and to present me a kiss? Enrique, what you think of it? It would be very pleasant for me to meet each other one days.  I was worry when I was write this words to you but please understand I only write what I think no more. It is my real feelings. I shall wait your answer with impatience...

My feelings to you grows day by day. I can not understand what happens with me. I think I falling in love to you.

Hi, my favourite friend Enrique.
I became very happy to receive your letters. You know I forgot to write to you my last name in my last letter to you. My full name is Anna Pogotskaya. But You know it would be better if you continue write to me using internet because russian post work very very bad. I mean do not send any expensive things to my address I am afraid it might lost. I know many cases when the baggage or letter does not come to receiver's address, anyway here is my full address: Anna Pogotskaya,
10 Ivanovskogo St. apt# 18,
Tomsk, 634031,
Russia.
I think it would better if we will continue to use an internet. For these letters I have understood, that you that which I waited all these years. All my ideas of steel only about you, I live by dream to meet you faster. But while I can not make it because I have a lot of works now. I can inform you about it in some days, mine love. I am very tired from our city, our cold, I want to receive heat and love from your words, your touches. I think, that you will become happy, when we shall meet. I wait for this day each day. And you? I have understood, that it is the real love, I dreamed of it for a long time. It so is wonderful for knowing about that that on the other end of light me my waits favourite. You know, all my cares were beaten off by my love to you, I very wait for this meeting. I never thought, that will grow fond of the man which is some senior than me. But your last letters have forced to understand to me that I do not test similar to my friends. I already for a long time did not meet them because I think only of you. I have forgotten about hobbie, I think of work a little. The friends have noticed that I became slightly another, but they do not represent that my life became another after meeting with you. I love to dream of you. It so good and pleasant for me. Here is a pic of me again for you. It was taken in some cafe in our city. Hope you like this pic. Also please send me the name of your closest international airport or some of them. Simply I want to learn how much it is costs for me to come to you. It would better for me if I will know it faster.

Hi my lovely friend Enrique.
I am very glad to read your letter again. Thanks for e-card again!!! I never wrote to you about that I have a hobby - I collect old coins. I have about 35 in my collection. I began to be engaged in it when to me was about 6 years. I very much like to do it but I have no many money to increase a collection new copies. But I do not worry about it because I treat quietly this. I think that it is pleasant to you. You know for these some letters I have fallen in love with you very strongly. I for a long time did not test anything to men, and you seem have demented me. I understand that it a little bit silly so quickly to fall in love but it is valid so. I never thought that I shall fall in love with persons with help Internet but I so have strongly grown fond of you that to me now not important as we have got acquainted with you because the main thing this that that I love you madly and it is very healthy... I very much want to arrive to you but unfortunately I have no such opportunity. Yesterday I have learned all about my trip to you, I must have registration of visa and passport, so I must pay about 310-350 $ US for those things. This amount includes: - payment for visa and passport registration, - payment for promptness (because sometimes registration borrow 4-6 months) - Interview in embassy and medicalsurvey (I must have blood testing before leaving). I plan to register a work type visa so then my firm will pay for tickets so you must not worry about tickets or money for tickets because my working firm will pay for this. But I must ask money help from you for payment for registration of my work visa and passport to your country, because I do not have any money right now. So please try to find way to help me this money sooner, so I might pay for it because as you may understand it will borrow sometime. So if you would send money help that amount today or tomorrow I will be able to pick up your money help faster and pay for it, so it would take less time... I dream to appear about you and to present you the present love, the present passion which you did not test already for a long time. It would very pleasant for me if you will be able to help to me amount for visa and passport sooner. So if you will help to me this money it would nessesary to do it via Money Gram or Western Union transfer system because we have only these kinds of transfer syster in our city. Also as I have heard it is faster and easy, because sending money via mail or post office is some dangerous like I have already explained to you, even our post office has attention papers "Do not sending money and expensive things via post". Also it is not nesesary to send via any other system because simply we do not have any others really. If you could make it today it will be very pleasant for me. So I could pay money for registration of the passport and the visa that will borrow about 2 weeks in time. Though if you cannot will make it today it would very pleasant to me to know the date when you can make it really that I have calculated the days and most quickly appeared with you. Enrique, I want to be only yours. I love you and very much I miss on you. 
Yours and only yours Anna Pogotskaya

Hi my lovely sweet friend Enrique.
I have read your letter.
Of course, we have some problems but I want that together we have tried to make as it is possible better. I still hope to get your money help for my nesesary documents to your country sooner. I want to meet you faster, because my firm can give me some vacation at this time, because usually we have alot of work and now my boss decide to give me some more days. Today morning I have already had blood testing which I paid myself, it cost 17,5 $ US, test was taken 20 mins and my blood is OK do not have any viruses or bacteries so I may begin visa and passport registration. I still need in amount 319 $ US correctly for everything. This price include: - Legal Interview in Embassy - 98 $ US - payment for visa and passport registration - 133 $ US - payment for promptness - 88 $ US I am ready for registration of the visa and passport and people in travel agency tolds to me that it would be ready in 10-14 days. But I still do not have enough money for it and I am asking this money help from you. You can see that it is much faster than to wait 3-4 months which usually this process borrows. Because I want to pay for promtness. My visa will be OK in your country maximum for 90 days. Sorry but I can not have visa for more days. I hope that you will not wait and will try to send me money faster that I might pay for this purpose. Then I have alreday might plan my flight to you, because my firm will help me to buy any tickets for any date (but of course not for first class). You know I plan to leave my country from SVO international airport in Moscow. It is closest international airport to me. Just remember one thing my firm will pay for international flight only. I want to arrive to you faster and my sweet now it depends only on you. I have already explained to you how difficultly to earn such money in Russia. And I do not want that money stops our relations. Really a little it is a shame to me to ask it from you but I have no other exit in this situation. I very much want to leave from here to you, I was bothered with my city, I want to see only you and to be only with you. I have never thought that I would fall in love to you so quickly and it is not some joke my feelings are real for you. I want to execute all your dreams and imaginations of me because I love you madly. I want to do only as you will wish. I very much believe in you and your help money faster. Enrique, do not forget use Western Union or Money Gram. Sorry but we have not any other transfer system therefore one of those ays  would good to use for us. Also I must to know your full address if I would receive it.
Yours Anna

I passed all tests and everything and all papers are ready.  I will pass my final interview at the embassy this week and they will put all stamps in my documents and I will come to see you! I can't say I'm too much nervous. I know you are waiting for me and I hope you will tell me everything about your country and show me some nice places over there. I will travel eco class,  I hope my flight will be OK.  I will be able to stay over there during six months and then I can prolong my visa or change my status. I'm happy I have a job lined up and I hope everything will works out! I want to meet you and talk to you and get to know you better.. I feel we will like each other, at least I hope so. If you decide you know me not well enough and want to be only friends with me I shall rent a room. But I hope you will like me!!!!!!!!!! I have a good feeling about it! I've learnt how to make international calls.  I've been told not all public phones and suitable to do this  and I've been told which one I can use not far from the place where I'm staying. As I wrote you I will come later this week and I will stay here for several days. So now I have to make final arrangements with my documents. I told you I passed all tests, I have all documents I need to get a job and everything. Please try to help me to finish my arrangements. And I need to pay for this flight.  People from embassy must be sure that I am not going to stay illegally, so I need to buy roundtrip tickets (with returning date).  I wanted to ask you about electronic tickets but they tell that I can't use because it is their businees to arrange all travel details and they have some extra money from all the things, you see it is just business. I think that you will be able to help me because I don't know anybody here and only you are my hope now, I think everything in your hands and I believe that you will not leave me here alone. please borrow some money. I am sure I will be able to return all your money back after a few weeks, I will get salary and I will collect the sum I own from you. To be fair I am not sure I know what to say because I hate to ask but now I have no different way, you see.Please help me it is only money  and much more important if we will meet in person I will do my best, you won`t be disappoined. I see that it sounds a little crazy  but I can't believe that in the worst case I have to return home, they all will laugh at me. I think it rests with you to decide and I feel that  you will help me because you are kind. I have about 300 US dollars yet and I think  I eed about 985 US dollars from your side with all travel needs and living here till my flight! (I  had 1180 dollars, but flight from Kazan, opening visa, medical insurance and all travel needs costed about 800 dollars).  For truth I didn`t expect I will need to buy roundtrip tickets, but now
I see that its a very strict rule.

Please send it today by Western Union or Money Gram
I will write you details:

Russia, Moscow, Mariya Ushakowa !!!! This is my full name!

Hello my Tiger! I can so you to name? Thank's for your reply so much!!!
I'm OK about your age! Have you heard a saying The older the violin the sweeter the music?! I hope soon I will be able to come to your area and we will meet each other! This time I will write you more about myself. I think you should know more about my life and my hobbies so you will know if we have any common interests. I'm 26 years old, not too young I think? My birthday is 23 September. I'm 177 cm tall (5.9) and 56 kg weight.. I don't know exactly my bust-waist-hips measurements, I don't have a reason to measure it because I think it's OK and my body is proportionate )) I take care of my body, I do aerobics three times a week and I go to the swimming pool twice a week. I have a younger sister, she is 23 years old (look a photo). Her name is Olga. I live with the father and mother. We all live in two-rooms flat. As I wrote you I live in Russia. The name of my city is Isilkul, it's near Omsk city. Isilkul is very small and Omsk is a large city, the main city in our district. I graduated from Omsk Humanitarian University two years ago. As I wrote you I`m a menager of the big shop, my city is small but we have a big shop here. Sometimes I attend courses in Omsk so I have several diplomas, but you know in russia we don`t have good work opportunities. But this work help me to take care about myself. When I come to your city I think it won`t be a problem to find work on my specialization (I shall work as the simple seller). My father is 58 years old now, my mom is 46. You see my mom is much younger then my father and they are very happy together. My mother is a teacher of music in the school. I also could play a piano a little. I like classic music, jazz, rock, lounge. I like all kinds of music! A little about my father: he is in a good shape because we usually make exercises together, he doesn`t work now, because he is retired already. I love both my parents and I'm happy my parents will be not alone when I leave them and will go to another country. Of course I will miss everybody but I want to have my own happiness!

Do you have an International Airport in your city? Please write me it's name an code.
Or write me the name of the nearest INTERNATIONAL Airport to you. I write you my emails from Internet cafe, I don't have my own computer. If you want I can call you when I will be in Moscow, it would be nice to talk to you. We don't have international calls here. I suppose in few days I will fly to Moscow and start my trip! Today I will tell my parents about you, I'm sure they will be happy that someone is waiting for me over there! There is no any messenger in this Cafe so we can only keep emailing each other. I hope you are not getting bored to read my emails? My address here is Russia, Isilkul, Bluhera st. 32, flat 16, post code(zip) - 646023. So now you have a representation of who I am.... I just can tell you that I enjoy life and I try to live to the fullest, I like to try new things. I'm not that smart.. I was not that good in mathematics, physics, biology and so on! I don't like to be smart! But I'm very tender, caring, artistic, faithful, decent person. Sometimes I can be not well organized, I think everybody had it's own minuses and pluses. I don't look any special qualities in a man. I just hope he will be faithful to me and ready to create a happy family with me and I will do everything to make him happy. I'm looking for a soulmate! OK... it's time to finish my email. I'm sending a kiss by the wind to you and if I sent it to the right destination you should receive it by evening )))) I hope you will catch my kiss somehow )))
bye!

Tatiana Ponomarewa

Scammer's name: Tatiana Ponomarewa also known as Tania Ponomarewa  I am a single man, Australian, 59 years old, working.  I received an original email from Flower Lily <hodgeskurtis@yahoo.co.uk>  and had to reply to mailto:swalteri40@yahoo.co.uk  Then correrspondence was sent back and forth to Ponomarewa Tatiana <secret22land@yahoo.com> (secret22land@yahoo.com)  The correspondence lasted for 10 days. She wanted to come to  Australia and was nice in her letters. She moved to Moscow in  readiness, or so she said, to move to Australia. She wanted  assistance for the flight, I assisted with money. Then she wanted  money to prove to the consulate she could support herself in  Australia, I assisted with money. The correspondence then ceased.  The money request was handled through Western Union in USD. The  monies were sent to Tatiana Ponomarewa. Two lots of money were  requested and sent. The first for USD$1,150.00, the second for  USD$2,000.  There was no website to inform and communication ceased after the  second monies were collected. 
Peter 

Letter:

The initial email follows:

Hi! I'm a single girl and I'm 26 years old. Please take a look at my  pictures and let me know if you like them! I live in Russia and I'm  going to come to your country and work over there very soon! I don't know  anybody over there and I thought it would be great to meet someone who is open to  anything (as I am!). I would be happy to be friends, lovers or create  a serious relationship! We will see what happens!  I hope you will write me back and I will write more info about myself  and send more photos!!!!!!!!!!!  I am writing from my friend's email   address, so please make sure you do not reply directly to this email.   Email me at swalteri40@yahoo.co.uk only.   if you don't use my personal email address then I won't be able to read   your reply and write you back. So it is very important that you get it right.  Ok, I guess it is now your turn. Hope to hear from you today. Bye!!  btw, i got your email from adultmatchmaker.com.au website
