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.

Hi at you hope all is fine!!
I will have help whith one girl as had scammed me at over 1700Eur in four different deposits to her. I had help she whith travel and visa and exactly all whit money. Name at girl are Olga Lapteva  last transfer I did was yesterday, she said that she was standing at an airport in Moscow. She explained to the two day ago that she had collected the visa of Swedish embassy. and she claimed that she was living in Cheboksary as she say No i know now att she live in Yoshkar- Ola. so she had traveled to Moscow two days before to arrange the trip. so after the last payment yesterday, as I did to her. I thought that I call the forex is MoneyGram agent, ask them to check out what she take out money. they called for MoneyGram in England. they did not get any information from MoneyGram, but I had to call himself the MoneyGram office. I did it and was told she was in Yoshkar-Ola as she had taken the money out 15 minutes after I put in them to she. and they say on moneygram she had do one payment to other person in same time after she had take out my money. I send over some pictures of she so please help me to put on pictures in thish website
Best regards Nicklas Jönköping Sweden.
Ps I send ove only few mail from she girl now .so you can se how she hade write but i had so much mail from this lady. and here also i send over she mail address she had use hole time.                                              
 I've had almost 100 e-mail contact with this lady. so email may not be accurate in the right order here now.


Hi my dear Nicklas!

I am glad to read your letter and your arguments about the education of children - I also fully agree that the best education their parents separate than together who do not get along, and the constant squabbles - children should not see it, it violates their
psyche and makes them nervous as well .
It seems to me that a month will pass quickly but now I think every day to be there with you - it really makes me very excited. I'm waiting for this moment and I think that Sweden was a beautiful place and nice people there!
So, I was in the bank and asked details there! but there is no Iban, that you asked! Here are the details that they gave me and told me that it is full of details that you need! Perhaps we have different banking systems and it makes the communication problem
between us. I told them about it and they said that we can send via Western Union and Money available in 15 minutes and so this is not a bank transfer to wait 7 days and payment of the amount taken away from me, here are 5% that you perevedesh and just take
away have you got for the translation, it seems to me that the system of Western Union, will be cheaper!

there until my bank details:

ACCOUNT NUMBER: 40817840411090000103

I will finish yet because I have to go to work. I will wait your answer soon!

Hello my love Nicklas!!
I've always enjoyed reading what you write and to know your opinion because it is important to know each other's views when we go to our goal and we should be able to listen to each other and see our desires and dreams and discuss all the problems if there is something! What do you think? I think that you will support me in my mind.
 I really want to see you, but I think it is very difficult because of the price of our meeting - about $ 900, I am saddened by this since I was in the agency and they told me that this is so, and the entire mission , this price
will be present. I am now very upset with this knowledge because I never thought it would be so expensive. : (You
 must prepare the documents for travel, and many papers are ready to take the agency, but it needs to pay about $ 320, and the same tickets and my way to the airport in Moscow, and there should be 1-2 days to confirm a visa and
I all taken into account and estimated that all this will cost just as much.
 If I had the opportunity I would not even thought about how to make this meeting, because you're the one I'd like
 to see side by side for their entire life and I wonder what you're there alone. I hope that we will meet soon!
With Love
Hello my Lovely Nicklas!I waited your letter is really long and I'm glad that you wrote to me. I hope that the problem with the mailbox you have it completely solved indeed!I just want to say that you are very good father because you can even help clean teeth ... :)It seems to me that you can make any girl happy and I was very lucky to meet you. And I just worry and worry about our future meeting, but you should know that I am as confident in the fact that I do not make mistakes and I come to you consciously, and this is my choice I'm very happy, I hope you know very well there!I think that we can stay there for the first time 1,5 months? I hope this good?So that's still my information that you asked!my full name: Olga Laptevamy address: Russia, 428000 Cheboksary, Karl Marks street 115-28
I also hope to know your information!On my working day - everything goes as usual, no serious book like, and I am calm about it. :)Also in our department and a new seller and I must help train her and show her how and where to find merchandise and assortment, just work with Cass!I have to go to work now!I will wait your letter soon!Your Olga

My dear Nicklas, I just got back from the embassy and I got the visa but they told me on condition that the agency can not remember me. I must have not less than 500 euros in cash during the passage of the customs here otherwise I can close out of the country. : (I must go now to a representative of a travel agency in the airport, I do not know if I could write again today, as it is not close, and while traffic jams in Moscow soon!: (
I explained that I must show the money at customs and it is not spent anywhere - just as a pass because of the large flow of illegal immigrants who are simply going away and never come back it's done. I hope that we could solve this problem, because money is not spent and if you are able to help me, I will immediately give you back is at the airport when we meet. I'm tired during the day as a long queue at the embassy. : (But I hope that you understand and maybe you could borrow money from credit card to 1 day - it's even less. If you could send in the morning, then I could manage to take it before the flight, as flight after lunch.
While I have to go to trial with a representative of the agency.
Your Olga

Hi my dear Nicklas!!
I've learned about someone and how he could help me.
But I needed the whole $ 560 as I should have a supply of money for a trip to Moscow, I do not think that all of the $ 200 for the trip will be spent yet, but I should have just in case anymore. I can and want to come to you shortly. The agency could not assume that I have debts and they warn me about the fines and I pay for this one that I have for crossing the road in the wrong place.
 But the bank has given these conditions and they said that it was only then that they can do as by law do I have to give them all the means I have to. But it is not profitable and they just play safe way!
 I took my $ 120 and $ 80, I received today on account of the next paycheck. My friend can lend me a further 50 and my mom for another 30. But while this is all I can. : (I do not know maybe you could do something there? "I can not rely on someone else now. Here, the situation of many poor. And of course I understand that there is not easy, but we will cope with debt there, as Yet it is not so much.
 I hope you could help me with the remaining $ 280 when I arrive I will give you everything that is not spent - according to my calculations, I will try to save $ 30-40 if all goes as I plan. I want to come as early as Monday or Tuesday so I hope you could help me all the same this time. I miss to see you and I really wish that there was this unforeseen situation here. : (
 I hope that we emerge from this situation!
Your Olga Nilsson!

> Hi my dear Nicklas!
> I'm at the airport and customs I was told that I need a number of 35 euros for 1 day stay with the expectation for a month.
> Since I have not booked hotels, and invitations from there, then I should have 1050 euro instead of 500 as told in the embassy because they did not know that I have not booked the hotel and it is very sad for me as I had hoped to fly today. if you have time to send 550 euros to 13.25 today, here I shall fly the same flight, but if not, then I can upet to the same time if you give me the opportunity to fly to Helsinki and I'll get on my flight, I was told that this is possible if I have time to 3 hours here, if not, then I'll be changing my ticket for tomorrow.
> I hope you have time today and then we will immediately refund the money back to credit cards.
> I'll wait for your answer, and periodically check the mail here at the airport!
> Your Olga

Here have you copy at only one at all mail i recived from she. As she say are in Moskow.
Hi my dear Nicklas!
I read your letter with great feeling and a smile on his face - what you wrote - so beautiful and so nice to know that we want to see each other soon and this is happening because on Thursday they said come and get my passport and also request a visa will be clear then they will say that I was a short interview for a visa as well. The visa can I pick up after when I am in Moscow to fly, so I have to leave for a day or two in time to find the embassy there and get a visa and all documents from the representative of tour agencies there. So I think that soon all settled and I even had my head is spinning from all this mess with the documents - it seems that so many papers to allow for visa and I hope that soon all finished ...
I like to be Olga Nilsson! I think that I was going that name! I love this name and my future husband. its owner. :)
I'm aware that it is difficult to get time from school and I have your address if I can go there!. :)
So I must find out until everything is still here and soon I'll write just about everything - good. I think it's just not a problem to get the evening for the arrival!
I will end now - time for dinner ...
Your Olga

Hello my dear Ivan!
I have all the information about my visa now. And I will get it without any problems. It will be so great to come to your country at last and to see you. I even can’t believe this could happen some day! Yes, perhaps, I act like a silly girl. But I already dream of our meeting. I try to imagine how this could be. How I will touch your hand, look into your eyes. So now I have to do is to show them all the papers and to pay for it.
But here I have one problem. I tried to save money. But I didn’t expect I would have to pay for visa so soon. I thought it would be later. So I don’t have enough money right now. And I need your help in this if you really want to meet me. I need 240 US dollars to pay for visa. It will include medical insurance and everything that should be there. Perhaps, you think why it is so expensive. Well, sum of money includes visa, insurance, medical certificate and many other papers.
I already have got my passport for going abroad. I have already made it and have paid for it. But I didn’t think that they would give visa so soon. And if I don’t pay for it now, I could have problems in the future with getting visa. And I don’t want to miss this chance. To prove you that I am real and I don’t lie to you, I am going to attach you a copy of my passport. So all I need to do now is to pay for visa. And then everything will be done and all we have to do is wait for the time it is issued. I have only 7-10  to pay for it and I will get it without any problems.
This visa allows me to stay in your country for 3 months. And to enter any university during 3 months. I can stay for longer is I enter the university. But if I find a job I can stay for the rest of the time in your country if I find a job when I finish my education. But I also plan to work there while I study. I don't want to depend on any one. I will return back your 240 $. I am asking it to borrow. I will work and return back it. I promise. I’ve got to know that the best way for you to send money through Western Union or Money gram. Please, don’t send me money by regular mail. First, for sure I will not get it as they steal money and things here. And also it will take long time for the mail to come. And then I will miss my chance with visa already.
So, please, use WU or Money gram for sending money. It is an easy and quick way to get it. You already know my address, I’ve sent it to you already. And my full name is Valeriya Yurchenkova. You better check or to get more information and also offices that are close to you. You can send money to any Western Union of Tomsk. Please, understand my problem and send me 240 dollars. So, please, let me know if you can help me in this.

Subject: My heart aches...
To: Ivan

Hi dear Ivan!
I want you to understand one thing, I am not looking for money and this is not what I want. I am looking for happiness not money. I need a true man I can trust, the one I can fall in love with. I am ready to settle down and to have a real family. And this is what I am looking for, not money at all. You should trust me in this way. I am not going to lie to you. I understand that many russian women lied to foreigners. But not all people are the same. I am not!!!
I need about 600 USD to buy tickets. But I don't need it now. I will need to buy the ticket when I shall receive the visa. I will try to find money by this time. I understand what you think now. If I can't find 240 USD then how could I find 600 USD. It is easy. I am going to sell my fur coat. It is a very expensive fur and I can sell it for 600-800 USD. I have already made an advertisement  of sale. But I may not be able to sell it for some days. If I do not do it now, then they could just refuse me in it. Don't worry! I will have money for the ticket. I promise you! May be pic which I add today prove to you that I am real. I made it yesterday to prove to you that I am real. Hope you remember my nick name? (Lyalya). I have written about it in my second letter to you. My friends call me Lyalya. I think that you have concerns about me real.
I do not lie to you. I am going to get money in WU office or MoneyGram using my passport. If I was not real, I wouldn't be able to get the money!!! Please, understand that I am real! I sent you a copy of my passport in my last letter. The problem is that I have no time to wait. I have only 7 days for this.
Please, understand that next time they may not even take the documents for visa, if they refuse me now. And they will refuse me in this if I do not pay in time. They will just tell me what for I try to get visa for the second time if you have no money. So I am just in hopeless situation. All my thoughts are about one thing now. Then I may not have such a chance again. Your goverment has a limited amount of student visas. And if I miss my chance now, i may not have such a chance again in the future. It is impossible to get another kind of visa. NO one will give me a tourist visa. It is impossible for a single russian lady to get it. I asked about the work visa. It is a very difficult process. And also more expensive one. I don't have a diploma about high education in your country. And the russian one is not valid in your country. The Fiancee visa is a very long process and complicated process. It will take about half a year to make all the paperwork and if they don't see that we do love each other truly they will just refuse in the Embassy.
I want to repeat. please, understand - I ask you to lend me money. I understand it is too expensive for a preset. I understand that 240USD is a big some of money in your country. I don't believe in miracles as I was disappointed many times in this life. You will not loose this money. I will come to your place and will work there. And as soon as I earn I will give you money back.
You can send money through Western Union:
Kirova Prospekt 3b,
TOMSK, 410600, RUSSIA.
Rozy Lyuksemburg, 19
TOMSK, 634000, RUSSIA.
My full name is Valeriya Yurchenkova.
You can receive the information how to send money from a site - I’ve been thinking a lot about us yesterday. I have so many feelings and they are so different. My heart aches when I understand that you are far from me. I wish I could lessen the distance between us. I know that I have to be patient and wait.
Perhaps, you will think that I am silly but I don’t want to hold  it all inside and I want to share my feelings with you. I am emotional person and I want you to see my feelings. Please, understand me. I want to share this with you. I think I am in love with you. Of course, I have to see you in real life and talk to you to be sure. But I have so many emotions about you and I miss you so much. I think about you all the time. I get up with the thoughts about you and I go to bed thinking of you too. I feel that I want to take care of you, I want to give you all my love.
Please, don’t think I am weird. But this is what I feel about you. And I want you to know this. Life goes one. Nothing new happens. I go to work, do different things at home, meet my friends. But any way I do something I think of you. Please, tell me what you think and feel about me. It is really very important for me and I need to know this.
