Kate / Katya (Yoshkar-Ola, Mari-El) Natalya Jitinkina 

Name: Kate / Katya
Location: Yoshkar-Ola, Mari-El
Handle: k_katya (
Email address:

YOU KNOW HER AS Natalya Jitinkina!!!

My name is Sean, I am Chinese-American from the great state of New Mexico (I am a native of Brooklyn, New York). My religion is Russian Orthodox. I am divorced. I have been looking on the Internet for a Russian bride. I placed one personals ad on I've been looking for a wife with the same religious background. A woman named Katya started e-mailing me on January 8, 2002. From the beginning, I was suspicious. She has NEVER asked for money. However, she has always seemed too friendly. She has never made any serious attempts to answer direct questions I asked her. She has always expressed too many thoughts of love - of finally finding her true love. This happened after the third e-mail. She has also made inconsistent statements
from one letter to the next.

First Letter 

"Hi, my name is Katya. I live in Russia. I work as a tutor in a childrens day nursery. I love children and animals very much. I am 26 years old. I want to get acquainted with the man, who will be a support in my life. I agree to get acquainted with a man from 30 and older. For me age is not the main thing. The main thing is that there is love and mutual understanding! I do not notice a difference in ages. I hope only for my true love, and I hope very much that all with us will be good! I agree to answer all questions that interest you. I am anxious for your letters! 
PS: Please write me letters only to"

Another Letter

"Hi my LOVE today torise early and to do(make) various fruit salads. I to not have a lot of food, I to watch(keep up) the figure andconstantly to do(make) not the large jogs after work. I shall be very glad to receive still new your photos. I shall do(make) their listing on the colour printer and to place them above my bed in a sleeping room. Mine the mum too very much loves to read your letters. I to do(make) their translation on Russian and we together with my mum to read.I was never married, but very much it to want. I never to be engaged in sex with the man! It is very pleasant to me to learn(find out) that we by mutual understanding each other, you see it is the very important fact in ours with you the attitudes(relations). If we want to create strong union, we should trust and understand each other in all I feel fine,concerning me can not worry with me that's all right. Today I have received from us at job wages. To you probably will be ridiculous but she has made forty dollars. Well good we shall not"

NOTE: You will find the same letters on page23 of this site! 

Here are 3 pictures of "Katya". Also known as NATALYA JITINKINA

Sean from New Mexico, U.S.A.

Ukrainian Tours - Nikolaev

I am a 41 year old male UK (United Kindom not UKraine as it has been mistaken for before) and was looking for a long term relationship with someone from a different culture.

I answered an AD in One and  The ladies was listed to be from Budapest...(Thanks to scam guides one and only do not accept ads from Former Soviets Unions FSU).

I wrote to this lady and had wonderful responses.  I only wrote/received a few letters and noticed that things were not as they should be.  Each time I received a photo it did not seem to be of the same person.  I wrote to the agency whose Director was Andrei (Andrew)Margarit. He gave me explanations which were an insult to intelligence. I thought 'let it go and see what happens next'. Then he told me he had fired the people that had made these mistakes. I replied to say that it was unnecessary to fire his staff but perhaps reprimand them. He then sent me a photo of the real person I was supposed to be talking with...(Totally different lady again).

The type of story that ensues is that of: single mother, husband has died, looks after mother etc.
When I asked her if we could meet, the reply that we should wait for a few months so that we knew more about each other.  (In hind sight this would be giving the agency more time to  find more ways to make money. ie English lesson for your lady!.)

Elena Koldyreva (Orenburg, Russia)

I am a 41 yr. old divorcee. I was first approached by this "Lady" after I posted a personal at the Yahoo personals and the story developed as it did with many others. However, I did not fall for it and the Elena group may still be waiting for my money, which obviously they will not get, although I may still tease them with false hopes, just for the fun of it, they still write to me and they sound very much in love. I was very surprised to find my "Beloved's" name on your blacklist, even more surprised when I found my letters to be identical to those of other victims, the poems, her nocturn wantings and of course, her pitch for money. I knew already that tourist visas for most Russians are a no go, so I offered to go visit her, her parents, her "schoolchilds" and her Aunt Olga in Moscow. These people are not getting one penny from me. I must also say Thank you very much to this website, it sure has saved a lot of many to many who have been fortunate enough to visit it. I am very blessed to have found it and I consider Elena a Guardian Angel for many of us, very much for me. Again, Thank you!!! I am enclosing some letters and the photos that my Russian princess sent me, so, if you find your lady here, she [they] only want your money...

Oxana Curdiuova (Belarus)

The photos of the lady Oxana Curdiuova (page 50) are of a lady that is working as an actress and model in New York city she has been showing up on in Adds for new products on TV sense the first of the year. I am 45 years old and I did not lose any money just my heart! 

Victoria Potapova / Vika (Lugansk, Ukraine)

I initiated contact with Victoria Potapova through "Agency Journey". They also go by the name "Heart's Journey". In the first email, this girl (Victoria) mentioned that she's not looking for just fun emails and she's serious in her intentions. That made me feel that maybe this girl is honest. I had done extensive research on internet about dating scams and I knew that I had to be careful. After a few emails, she started sending very loving emails. That created doubts in my mind. I asked her how can she love me without even seeing me in person. That offended her and she stopped writing and told me that she's going to village to see her granny. I've read such stories of guys who have unfortunately been scammed and faced similar situations where a girl would say that she's going to village to see her granny. Not an unusual thing though but I was getting mixed signals. Because of these mixed signals, I thought maybe I should give her the benefit of doubt so I apologized to her for not believing in her words in my next email. She did not answer. I called her many times at her home phone number. There was no response. Sometimes, some guy would pick up the phone and hang-up. Anyways, after sending several emails and making tons of telephone calls, I sent her a final email regretting my loss and wishing her the best. She replied the next day! She apologized for her silence and told me that she was sick. I responded back to her and told her that I was trying to reach her by telephone as well. She told me that her phone number had changed and gave me a new number. I called her and things went back to normal. However, I was not completely satisfied due to many reasons. Number one, she would never answer my questions the first time I would ask. Usually, I would have to repeat my questions three times and then she would respond. Number two, her emails became extremely loving. She would only say loving words in her emails. Number three, she gave me a fake home address without the postal code. I verified the address and turned out to be a fake one. Number four, the information that she had provided about herself in her emails such as age, height, weight, education etc. changed when I talked to her on the phone. The agency would never reveal their URL. In fact, the agency would follow the same practice of not answering any of my questions the first time. They were charging me $15/month through Western Union. So, I decided to do a final test and wrote to her as a different person. Guess what? I received exact same reply that I had received when I wrote her my first email. I once again gave her the benefit of doubt thinking that maybe the agency sends auto-generated emails and maybe Victoria is not yet aware that her name is being used to send emails to a person other than myself. So, I continued as the other person as well as continued as real-me. Then, things became very clear. She was sending exact same loving emails to both the persons. As real-me, I asked her to send me more of her photos, she said that she doesn't have any. To the other person, she sent a different photo (the one that I had never seen before). I sent an email to the agency (Heart's Journey/Agency Journey) and told them that I have revealed their scam. I think, they panicked. They changed their email address and a different girl wrote to me from a totally new email address. They even changed their ISP so I could not figure out that it was the same agency. The email said nothing but contained a video. I replied to that email using a different email account and asked the girl who she was and guess what? I received the exact same email yet another time that I had received from Victoria two times. Then, at the same email address, I received an email from the agency that I would have to pay $60/month if I want to continue correspondence with this girl. They had no idea that they were talking to the person who had already revealed their scam. Anyways, it's very clear now that this agency (Heart's Journey/Agency Journey) is FRAUD!......Victoria Potapova is FRAUD and this 2nd girl (Helen or Helena Kisileva) who wrote to me from the same agency is also a SCAM. They usually use Yahoo email address (along with many others). The name of the person who sends the agency business emails is post-manager Vladislav and Helena Gorova. Here are the email addresses that they have used with me:

Ylia Kopilova (Ulan-Ude)

Hi Everybody,  
I am so glad I checked this web site for blacklisted Russian chicks - I was starting to fall for Ylia!  I am a single American male, age 41 who was contacted 1/8/02 through by 27 year old Ylia Kopilova (originally via double-blind address 
I see today it is changed to 
She gave me her personal email address in the first email, it is  
She gave me her address in the 2nd or 3rd email presumably to begin sending letters (or later money?).  The address given is 
Stepana Razina St 20-12. 
 When I searched for her profile, no details were given at all. She responded to my profile in  She began to tell me she loved me after about 4 or 5 emails.  It was all heady stuff.  I backed off in my openness after that.  It only took 8 emails before she started to mention getting a visa.  In the 9th email (in 9 days) she mentioned getting more details and sending them to me and asking for my trust. Here is an example of her latest email:


Greetings my love. I waited for the moment when I again shall receive from you the letter and this happy moment has come and I can learn (find out) that you think of my previous letter. Tomorrow I shall go to Vladivostok in the American embassy to learn (find out) more particularly about the visa. I shall inform about results later. Unfortunately I do not have friends which have left for America, but I hope that I can learn (find out) details itself. I have told about us with you the to the girlfriends, they are very glad that I have found the happiness, and that I shall leave to America. Certainly they will miss on me as well as my parents. seems that we already on are close to me with each other, we as if the husband and the wife only, unfortunately, divided (shared) huge distance so much. But not looking on we should continue to love it each other and to trust each other, you with me agree? I that can not do (make) with myself, it is love, she (it) sings in me as a bird in the spring sky. I think that it is destiny it can be dangerous, but I am madly in love with you. Your letters are filled such heat and care, and at me tears of pleasure sometimes run. I think " My God, that you have helped me to find thank of my only thing and I hope that we shall incorporate to it (him) and we shall be are happy. " I dream of our meeting and about that as we shall walk with you to keep for hands as we shall look after one after another and as we shall make love. I LOVE YOU, I WANT YOU, YOU FOR EVER In MY HEART, In MY IDEAS. I dream as you will carry me on hands to embrace me, to kiss and caress my gentle body. It is a pity that only dreams and whether it is fated to them to come true the God knows only. I hope soon to see your letter. 
Yours Ylia.
