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.

Hi, *****, It's great that you have already  reserver the tickets! I like your plan. The  place to stay at, I think it's not a problem.  Do you want to live in apartment? Or you need  a hotel? Write me what you want. I don't know  what to say about China and I don't even  imagine what is Macau. Do I need 5 passport  photos for each of the country? Don't think  that I'm a little girl and I'll runaway from  home with my prince. Some photos I made with  Canon, but it's not mine. Some with old Soviet  Zenit. The little photos were from my phone  camera. I'm very glad that you like. I believe  I'll need some money. Address: Darya Taranenko, Ukraine, Krivoy Rog Looking forward  to our meeting! 


This person contacted me first.Her name is Elena,
Her address is Skolova St, 7-24, Chalnov, Voljsk Oblast. She email me first and said she found my email address in dating site.She ask me money for her ticket,I said no.She's stop emailing me.


Her first letter

Hello my new friend! 
My name is Elena. 
how are you? I hope you are fine! 
I have found your profile and e-mail on dating site. 
As for me I want to find my love. 
If you are interested, answer me and we can begin our acquaintance. 
So let me tellsome words about me. I am was born 20 OCT 1982. 
I want to find someone who can love me and i can love. I looked your  profile and read information about you and what you want to see in a  woman of your choice.  And i believe, i can have all parts of what you want in soulmate, out of  thousands of people that is me, i find you to be my true choice and i  hope that you should feel the same way too.  It's really wonderful moment as I am writing this letter to you  and i pray that i should hear good and sweat reply from you.  You are far from me but i belief that there's nothing that love can not do.  I belief love can move mountain and love turns around person's life to  precious life and sweet one.  Ok, i wish that you will write me and lets have more  discussions and get to know more about each other.  My new friend I ask you to write to my e-mail: I will be great to read marvellous letter from you.  Hoping for God of love and in power of love I would like to hear from you. Thanks for the reading. 

Hi my dear !!!
I'm very glad that you have interested in me and I will try not to  disappoint you and you will get everything about me if you wish. We have got acquainted with you on site of acquaintances and you have left me your e-mail, it was may be 2-3 month ago and now I do not remember the name of that site. I ask you to write me about everything that you are able to say me.  I will be glad to know about your work and family, your close friends,  And your hobbies too.  
I want to tell you that through few weeks I will have a vacation. 
And I think to travel to other country. Therefore I want to find the man  in other country not from Russia. I would be glad if you could show me your country and your culture etc  if we become good friend or more!...  I had a dream when I was at school to travel a lot. 

So now I would like to tell you about myself. I am a Russian girl, I  think that not differ from others. I did not hope that you will answer me and when i saw your letter I was  really surprised and now i am sitting in front of computer and do not  know what to write you.  I am sorry if there are a lot of mistakes in my letter because i know  English not very well but however I was a best student in my class when  I was in school.  But I hope that you will understand me and if you have any questions I  will answer them with pleaser. Anyway it is time to say some words about myself. My father died, when I was a child. It was an auto accident.  I miss him a lot!!!! Since 2 years old my mother grew and educated me  alone. It was very difficult for her and I love her very much. And now she is the best friend for me. I'm the only child in the family and I don't have any children, but my  dream is to have my own family and children too.  My mother works in Voljsk in the hospital as a medical sister. I have never been married before.  I am the healthy woman and I do not smoke but sometime  I can offer myself to drink some good wine in good occasions.  Most of all I like red wine.  From food i like Chinese food and Russian food and I would like to test  European and West food.  I am not exactly that I want to have a child because i think that first  of all I want to find a man who will become my ideal sexual partner and  simply good friend for my heart.  So I work in office as manager in the insurance company, I work 40 hours in a week. I work with the clients who want to insure their car or immovable property. I help our clients correctly to choose the best ways to insurance.  I know that in your country the system of insurance etc is advanced very  well. In Russia people just now started to think about insurance, therefore we have many clients at this time.  In our company we have good boss, we have studied together with her at  University, but she is older than me for three years. I have good relations with my boss. I have high salary for our city. It is about 3-4 $ dollars at onehour.

I live in the city - Chalnov. It's small city.
It belongs to Voljsk Oblast', about 670 KM or 410 miles from Moscow.
I think that this information will help you to know me better. 
I would like to know about your work and City. 
I shall send you some picture of my city later. 

By the character i am a kind person and trying to enjoy everything in my  life and trying to destroy all difficulties in my life. So, letís go further. My friends say that i am attractive even beautiful young woman.  But unfortunately this fact did not help me to create my own family.  Now i am sick and tired of my loneliness.  I am an open-minded and communicative, but sometimes a little bit shy girl. Now i want to find someone who can make all my dreams come true.  In my turn i would be very glad and happy to do the same thing for my beloved man. So what do you think about it? By the way, i like sport very much. I am not a sportsman of coarse. Just in order to be in good form. I visit the gym three times a week.  I like to swim in the swimming pool.  But to tell the truth, i am afraid of water. But I try to overcome this fear. Sometimes, not very often, I love dancing very much.  I can't say that i like a particular type of musik. It depends on my  mood, what type of music i would like to listen to.  But usually i am very busy to have some rest and to do things i love to.  Well, what else? I even donít know what to tell you more. In such case i will finish my letter. I am waiting for your reply!  Good bye, my dear new friend!!!!  If you can please send me your pictures.  I will be glad to get your letter and pictures.  I am sending you my smile to make you feel happy. 
Your Elena from Russia.

Hi, my dear !!!

How is your mood? I am very happy,  I have some news.  Today at my work my boss has praised me for my work.  I had long conversation with her and she told me that I work very well  and I sighed many contracts for our company.  She told me that she will give me holiday  and I shall receive the premium for the well done job.  I was very glad to get this good news. 

I think that we can get know each other closer.  As you know, if you meet someone you must see, if everything beautiful in a person - face, clothing, spirit and mind. As for me I judge not by personís appearance.  The most beautiful thing, which I like in man is his spirit, not the face. I think that if the man has nice spirit, he is the best man in the world. As for me I have everything but not love thatís why I decided to write you. I hope that everything will be all right.  And what do you think about it? 

It seems to me that you are a very good and interesting person,  and I would like to know you better.  It is my first time when I use the Internet to get acquainted with somebody.

However now I want to say you some word about my city. 
Chalnov is little city in Russia (Voljsk Oblast').
The population is here about 70 000 people.
By the way, my address: Skolova St, 7-24, Chalnov, Voljsk Oblast'
Tell me about your city???? 
Hope to hear from you very soon!!! 
Take care, 
Your Elena.

Letter asking money.

Hello my dear,
How are you??? I want you to read this letter attentively.  I hope you understand that I my English is not very good but you will  understand what I want to say you.

After that I went to the agency to say that everything is ready for my trip and I can arrive to you. In travel agency I was told that I should go to the embassy.  I had to go to the embassy and had a conversation with the consul.  But I was shocked when he said that I shall not receive the visa!!! He explained me that the main requirement in reception of the  visa it to convince your authorities that I have no any intention  immigration in your country. ( that i do not want to stay in your  country forever while my visa is a tour visa).  The consul said that I could receive the visa I should buy the  air tickets in both ends.  I tried to explain that I do not want to stay in your country forever.  Because that my mum here and I shall come back necessarily.  But he said that it's obligatory requirement  and I shall receive the visa only when I shall show the air tickets in both ends. Dear I haven't enough money for the return ticket!!!  I mean I need to buy the round way ticket. I asked my friend But she can't give it to me, unfortunately. She can help me only with 50 dollars. But it is not enough.  I need for 600 $ US to arrive to you. I don't know where i can find  money!!! I do not know what to do.  I am awfully upset that I have not enough money to arrive to you.  Have you got any idea? Dear are you able to help me. I hope that we will  do something.
