I thought she was genuine; until I got lucky enough to stumble onto your Website! It seems that she is one of the scammers I read about on your site! They have a lot in common!

Nataly- Agency of Alexandra Kasianenco (Ukraine)

Thank-you for the wonderful site you have. It has helped me get out of some possible scams!

I came across the Agency of Alexandra Kasianenco listed in your Scammers list. I noticed that it was the same as the agency I am now using to correspond with a lady. I have been corresponding with this lady Nataly for 1 month. I contacted her via under profile number : V5002466 n_klochak77. After about 20 e-mails over the last month she requested in her last few emails that I help her pay the cost of correspondence (with a sob story). During my correspondence I have noticed that some questions I asked directly haven't been answered or any of my requests been followed through. I decided to tests this agency and this girl after reading you web site.

Here's the first email I received from this lady and a few others please notice the same information cut and pasted to the false (fake name of Daniel) e-mail I sent to test the girl and agency. Notice it came the same day as she said she couldn't afford to write to me anymore. The e-mail to Daniel contains the same paragraphs as pasted in a few of my emails.

Here is a copy of the web site that Alexandra Kasianenco operates from:
Please note she has posted her profiles on usualy containing the lady's first initial and last name followed by 77.


Letter from Agency

Dear Mr. ***,
The detailed information about our client Nataly Klochak you can easily find on the pages of our web site
We wish you all the best.
Best regards,
Alexandra Kasianenco


Hi dear ******,
Thank you for writing back to me. My name is Nataly. I'll try to return a favor in some way, at least in this letter. If you want to meet a unpredictable person with whom you'll go to the hottest point of the globe, maybe with whom you will step under the downpour and accomplish a lot of unconsidered actions then you ... found me!!!!! I'm so romantic. I like holidays with great number of candles, Lily of the valley in May and strawberries with cream. And I very want to meet my love: biggest and for Life. My dream is to go with my dearly-loved man to the desert island, where we can enjoy tropical nature, sea surf and in the company of each other!!!!!! I love children very much, they are flowers of life (and I will have my irresistible flower bed)! Maybe that's why I am working as a teacher in the school. I'm very happy and every day I want to present everyone with Love, tenderness and cordiality. If you want to become close friend with me, I'll wait impatiently for your letter. I look forward to hearing from you again.
 *******,send me your photo, please!
Dear sir, please, send your messages to the direct e-mail address: 


Hello dear *****,
I was very glad to get your letter, I' very happy you are interested in me! I liked your photo I was shown in the agency, too and your story. You have a very good figure, probably you have success among women?:)I understood we have same ideas about family and life, we both want to love and to be loved I like very much to bring an optimism and hope to the people's souls. It seems to me that a happy is not a life without cares and griefs but happy is a state of a soul. From my point of view, a real love to a person- is a wish him a lot of happy. I want outside world would be more kind. It seems to me that a main thing in the life- to do good, because evil, envy, intrigues, indifference to the people's pain will not allow us to achieve the success, to find happiness. It is very difficult but the world needs in it. People can warrant their existence by means of only one thing- it is LOVE!!! You asked me about my character, I think I'm kind, tender, caring, faithful, sexy, romantic. I like that live in Australia but it is very far, it's a very exotic country for me, and I'd like to meet sunrise with you on the beach of the ocean. I hope one day we will scuba diving together and have a ride on your bike, do you like high speed? I'm also interested in many things and have a lot of hobbies, I go to movies often, the latest one I saw was Pearl Harbour and I enjoyed it a lot! I like to listen to different music especially classical and modern. Especially Bethoven and Mozart. Dear ******, I'm also interested to know why you decided to find a girlfriend in Interne and did you get acquainted like this before? And do you enjoy your job as technician for an international manufacturing company? Dear *****,I want to finish my letter, because some thoughts and dreams must be kept for the next letters. Thank you for appearing in my life. It will be a pleasure or me to answer all your questions about me.

Dear sir, please, send your messages to the direct e-mail address: 

Final Letter

My dear ********,
I feel sorry about talking to you but I lost my second job and I don't have an opportunity to pay for the correspondence. I was embarrassed to tell you I work additionally in a night shop to pay for the agency's service. The shop won't work for 2 months and I'm without additional work now. It's a pity to tell you this, but I don't have another way out. I'm very happy that I met you and I don't want our relations to stop. You are a man, *******, with whom I'd like to create a family and I'm very afraid to lose you. If I'm important to you as well, if your heart feels something towards me, then don't let our relations to abort. Could you pay for our correspondence, ****** Is it hard for you? I will try to find a second job to free you from these expenses. Sorry that my letter isn't romantic as usually. 
With all my love and tenderness, 
your Nataly.

Dear sir, please, send your messages to the direct e-mail address:

Then I sent a fake e-mail to test Nataly and the agency. And she replied on the same day she asked me for money.

Reply to fake e-mail:

I look forward to hearing from you again.

Dear sir, please, send your messages to the direct e-mail address: 

Valusha28, Valentino Mironenko, Fortuneteller (Lugansk, Ukraine)

OK, here was a quick scam in progress from a girl posing as username Valusha28 on the site. I just tried to look her up again and her profile was apparently removed already. I began contact a week ago, e-mailed her a letter. In her first letter she "warned" me that she was using this dating agency called "Fortuneteller" for interpretation and so forth because she doesn't know English. That was fine, so I replied and answered her questions. The very next letter I get from her address is from the "dating service" telling me they need money after 2-3 letters. Well, she had only sent me one, so I immediately got suspicious. The girl also appears as Valentino Mironenko on this site, so she's a known scammer.

Fortunately, I got to see her picture before I started agreeing to pay for the translation service, which at $65 didn't seem like too bad a rip-off, but now I KNOW it's a complete rip-off so - no way! 

Letter 1

Hi, dear ,
How are you there? I hope this letter finds you doing well. First of all I should say that my English is not so good as you read in my letter, because I use the interpretation service of the agency "Fortuneteller" , I want you to know about it, I am very interested in our further relations and so it will be a great pity for me if we lose the connection. I want you to know more about me, so I will tell you about my interests. I like open space, as fresh air of mountains and sea. I like very much to see stars, especially the moon, when is great and brightly, in warm nights of summer, and to think that everybody desire it can see in the same moon in every part of the world. But it is so sad to have this romantic moments without a person close to me,who is agree about this simply but nice feelings. I am open minded, and able to understand a different culture, because I am motivated about this. I have a dream to be able to come home from work, give my husband a big kiss a hug and tell him I missed him during the day. To be able to sit down at the dinner table together as a family and talk about the events of the day and our plans for some future outing or something we would like to do. To be able to call my sweetheart during the day and take him out to lunch and maybe shopping or have him just show up at the office and take me out if he wanted to. To be able to bring home a small gift (maybe not so small) to let him know I was thinking of him during the day. For I have always believes that there is no "me" in family only a whole lot of "us". I dream of quiet evenings together by the fire in the winter and long walks on warm moonlit nights in the summer. I have been called a bit old fashioned at times but I would like to think I am just a hopeless romantic at heart. I would like to believe that in a relationship a man and a woman should be as equal as possible. They should both give and take, listen and voice their opinion be able to share their thoughts, feelings and Love for each other without expecting anything in return. By both husband and wife giving to each other then neither should feel they are always giving and never receiving anything in return. I would very much like my future man to be my best friend and confidant then my lover and last but not least my husband. I put them in this order because you can be friends without being lovers, husband and wife without being friends and lovers without being either. But to have your mate be your best friend first your lover then your husband or wife seems to me to be the best of all worlds. I would very much like to learn so much more about you, your dreams for yourself, I am interested in your feelings on family, how you see your roll in the family? Are you interested in pursuing a career? What are your favorite colors and what do you enjoy doing in your spare time? Here I go asking far too many questions, well I hope you know I am just interested in learning about you. I invite you to ask me anything at all about me, I will try to be as open an honest as possible, please do not worry about offending me as I have pretty thick skin and I do not offend easily. ha-ha-ha Now I am a student, I am finishing my last year in the University, and at the same time I work as an accountant part-time. It is not very well-paid job, but I hope that in the future I will have a chance to find more paid job.
Close up for now, 
Kiss you, 
Have a nice day, 

Very romantic, isn't it?
Here's letter 2, already begging for money

Letter 2

Dear Sir,
In our agency there is a letter for you from your lady Valentina. Unfortunately,we can't translate and send it to you,because we don't know about your intention as to further correspondence with Valentina. We help Valentina with the translation of her correspondence, and we also provide the Internet service for your lady. The translation of 2-3 letters are for free, but further translation is must be paid by you or by your lady. Before we offer Valentina to pay for our further service, we decided to propose it to you. Could you be so kind, to inform us what should we do in that case. Are you going to pay for our further service or should we give her letter back to her? Are you interested in this correspondence? The price for our further service is rather reasonable. You pay 65$ and this sum covers all your further unlimited correspondence with Valentina, we will also provide you with all necessary information about your lady: her postal address, her full name , her phone, where you can contact her, and we will send some of Valentina's recent pictures. Also we will arrange free English lessons for your lady during 1 month.
If you decide to send the money , you should send them via Western Union on the address: Ukraine, Lugansk, on the name of Lubov Guzeva.
What do you think about it? Please, inform us.
We are looking forward to your reply.
Lubov Guzeva,
Account manager.

Also was skeptical of above where it says English lessons for 1 month, that's got to cost more than $65, right? 


Elena Ivanova (Yoshkar-Ola, Mari-El, Russia)

I am a 32-year old American, divorced, with no children. I work as an
electrical engineer.

I was contacted by "Elena Ivanova" via FriendFinder ( Her alias there is "elena1978". Her email address is I had not previously had any experience with Russian women, and was not aware of such scams. I started corresponding with her via e-mail, and naturally, became interested to learn more about Russia in general, and Russian women in particular. In the course of my research, I stumbled across several sites pertaining to introduction agencies, and then of course the related scams. By this time, we had each sent 7 messages to each other, and were developing what I thought was a good rapport. However, I did notice several "red flags", as pointed out on this site and elsewhere (she contacted me, things were going a little too well too quickly, etc.). But I was still able to give her the benefit of the doubt.

Then WHAM! - I read some messages here that were EXACT copies of what I had received from her. Specifically, there are three letters from her in which the main part of the body of was exactly identical to the letters posted here from "Victoria" (also from Yoshkar-Ola, Mari-El, Russia). See Black list page 51 (December 13, 2001 - page 3) for details of Victoria. All letters there are the same as ones sent to me by Elena Ivanova, with some small changes to the first and last few sentences to "personalize" them. So there's no point in reposting them here. Also on this site, I found a letter from Elena Shurygina / Elena Volodina that has a long passage in the body that is not word-for-word identical to Elena's, but so similar in concept that they could not have been written this way by accident. So, I believe Elena Ivanova is somehow "related" to these other known scammers.

As a point of order, Elena did not ever actually ask me for any money. But that is only because, in letter 8, I busted her outright, and told here exactly what I had discovered. There was, of course, no further correspondence from her side after that...

I hope no one else gets scammed by this person. Thanks to all involved in maintaining this site. It may have saved me a serious heartbreak and a lot of money.

Good luck,

Elena Shurygina/Volodina/Yambaeva/Maltceva/Maltseva (Tyumen,Russia)

My name is Russell, I am 48 yrs young. I registered with NEO-DATES.COM and to my surprise received letter from ELENA SHURYGIN of Tyumen,Russia. She says that she is 27 with birthday forthcoming.

Thank you for your web site and GOD BLESS all the good women in Russia that are looking for a man like me.

Inter_Chance (Odessa, Ukraine) aka Amour of Ukraine

Amour of Ukraine has disguised itself!

I have checked out this website several times in the recent past and I was aware of the scam agency known as Amour from your input. However; and I think this is funny, I came across the agency Inter_Chance in Odessa. They are advertising heavily on the dating site Well, I imagine the site looks the same as the Amour used to and of course some of the ladies have exceptionally good pictures. I paid $70 for unlimited one month subscribtion for corresponding with Mila #251. I received painfully obvious pre-written letters from Mila #251 and I made some complaints to the Manager, guessed Natali Romanovski. She of course did not answer me. Then by accident I noticed when I access the Inter_Chance website at and go to the Correspondence page the website URL identifier lists the current page as Amour of Ukraine. Now that's funny, well maybe not $70 funny. It just goes to show you that the crooks are updating their scam as we catch on to them. Its not personal, so don't take it as such.


Mila251 and Interchance (Odessa, Ukraine)

My name is David Siegel. I contacted Mila251 at and she immediately began sending me very affectionate emails. I had suspicions so I asked questions and most of them came back with reasonable answers. Several times the exact same paragraph would come back to me, prompting me to wonder about her translator. Everything went through the Agency and translator as "Mila" had no phone and no access to the Internet. After several weeks of emails, I decided to wire money for her translation services, passport, visa, and airfare. As soon as I sent the money, she sent a very nice email thanking me and saying how excited she was to come see me. In the next email, her mother became suddenly very sick and she had no one to ask for help except me. I was the only person in the world who could save her poor dying mother. She was very upset and needed money urgently. I told her that if she came to see me personally, I would be happy to give her more money. I heard nothing after that.

They are currently operating at
Their current email addresses are:

Here are the photos of "Mila". I believe every woman on this web site is there to help these scammers trap men into sending money. They aren't there, just the photos and the scammers emailing asking for money on their behalf. Beware -- they will probably come back with another name, but watch for the same girls: #1: Inessa, #2: Natasha, #3: Lena, #4: Anna, #249: Sveta, #251: Milla, #252: Natasha

The woman who seems to be behind this scam is Nataly Romanovskaya
Danger! -- do not send money to Ms Romanovskaya!!

There is a web site about this scam agency here:

Feel free to contact me if you have more information.

Lyubov 'Luba'  Bajenova, (Ninhevartovsk, Russia)

I am a recently divorced 44 year old father of 3 grown children.
Contact originated through
Person said they were an individual who got tired of all the men drinking in Russia and went to an internet service to 'find her man in another country'. It lasted 6 weeks. It followed what I now know is the classic scammer guidelines...
First emails were clear about wanting to find 'her man', liked my profile, stated she was a 27 yr old virgin, father had died, single child, rapidly progressed
to declarations of love & trust with statements of sexual dreams of us together. (Almost identical to another letter I read from Ninhevarrtovsk publeshed here by 'Brian' - it must be the same person). The letters started getting fewer once money was sent. 

I sent $260 for application for b2 visa. Sent by western union to:
Country: Russia
 City: Nizhnevartovsk
 My name: Lyubov Bajenova
 the  address  of  my  branch western union:

Same city, same address for Western union funds, almost identical letters. I am now sending in my story and emailed a copy of Brians letter to 'Luba' letting he/she know, "yep, ya scammed me".

They said that I must wait about six month and I was very confused, I asked about faster way to receive it, they  said  that  it's  difficult  to  do  because many people want to receive  it and I must wait but they said that if I want to receive it during  two  weeks  I  must pay for it two hundred eighty two american dollars.  I  was  very confused and surprised.

I want to meet you Mike all my heart and I believe you want it too. I trust you completely and you  must  understand that I have share of risk too, but I feel that I love  you  all my heart. You show the large interest to me and I think we  can  have the future I think it's more than real, it really!!!

I really want to see you soon Mike, I  dream  about  our meeting, I wrote you about it. I went to bank and asked about the most reliable way to sending money, they said that the most  fast  and  reliable  way is western union. I've asked about this system.  They  say  that  the  sender  must  know  name and surname of receiver,  the  country,  the  city,  and maybe the address of western union  where  the  receiver will receive it. I've asked about reliable they  said  that it's simply and reliably: when sender send it, sender receive  the  secret  ten  digits  code  which  he  must  to inform to receiver.  The  receiver must have identification of person, so I have it.  I  sure  it  works.

And they do not give me such sum even if they are at them are. I to think earlier, that the visa to not cost such money. It to anger me. Why people may not meet if they like each other? Everywhere all to solve money. These peices of paper which nothing to cost in compairson with the most pleasant feeling on the Earth-love. But neverthe less I to become beforrs the fact, that these pieces of paper are necessary for me. And as they may not arise at me, I to address you for the help. Perfectly if you will not give up to me. Certainly is very inconvenient for me to ask your money. But if to kook on the other hand this fact my become check of our! attitudes(relations). We to learn(find out) to trust we each other whether or not. You may think of me everything. but what i may make? At us in Russia it is good to live only fat officials and stupid(blunt) gangsters. If you trust and believe me, you may send me money on the Western Union. The address of branch in our city:
Bank Dzenjinskiy

Natalia Gorbunova
I to learn(find out) to recieve money to me it is necessary to tell a code. The code consists of ten marks (figures) These figures should give you in bank. It is number money transfert. If I to tell these figures only then me to give money. If you decide to make it I shall be very grateful to you. I to test now vey much strong feeling of shame. I have not got used to ask money somebody. I to earn money itself am usual. But it is other case. I can not earn such money in short terms. I should work and save money 1,5 years. I to not sustain so much. I to promise you that I to pay back you with their love and caress. I to think, that money to not become an obstacle in our vital way. Once again excuse me, butt to me any more whom to ask for the help. To reach to you I should know where to be the closest international airport  from you. I to not want, that we to stop the attitude(relation). I to not  want to see near to myself anybody except for you. At me tears to occure on  eyes because of my powerlessness before this world.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this site. 

Natiliya Sedulova (Russia)

I have seen stories about this girl with the name "Natiliya Sedulova" from Russia. I knew I had seen her photo before somewhere else. I found her at Her name is Marina(contestant #119) from Kiev, Ukraine. As far as I know this is a legitimate site. It appears that someone has stolen her photos and is using them for their own gain. I don't know anything about this girl except that she appears at the modeling contest site. If she is really looking for a husband through a dating site I thought that it should be clear that "Natiliya Sedulova" and this girl are not the same person.

Svetlana Antonova (Ekaterinburg, Russia)

I'm a 34 divorced father of two. I first received a letter from Ms. Antonova on October 11, 2001, asking me if I wanted to get acquainted with a lonely Russian
woman. I replied to her letter. Within a few days Ms. Antonova, wrote and asked me to wire her through Westeren Union a fee of $350,so that she could get herself a visa to come visit me. I wrote back and told her that I thought it was best that we first got to know each other somewhat better. And over the next several months, we did. I did some research and I found out that a B-2 visa did cost $350. I wrote Ms. Antonova on January 6th asking her where I should send the funds to her. She replied with the required information. And on January 7, 2002, I wired her the funds that she had requested. A few days later she wrote back asking me to send her yet another $860 for an airline ticket. I told her that I had found a better deal here in the states and that I could wire her, her ticket to Moscow. She wrote back and said no, because she had already made a deal. She gave me a chat room address and told me that she needed to chat with me. So we did. The next day while in this chat room, I found someone who was scammed by Ms. Antonova, he gave me the blacklist address and told me to check it our for myself, which I did. And I can say that Ms. Antonova, may have gotten $350 from me, but she didn't get the other money she had asked for. To this day I am thankful to my new friend in this Russian chat room.
