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.

Gulfiya Shoutanova from Omsk, Russia

So after getting into the world of online dating, I was scammed by an cunning woman from Omsk, Gulfiya Shoutanova who initiated contact with me out of the blue via email. I was unable to find any information about her or the scam group she was involved in until I reported her to stop-scammers and found the following aliases after my report was published:

Alena Kazantsewa
Daria Shlyapnikowa
Alena Siroha
Natalia Wrakova
Natalia Gladkih
Victoria Mamonowa

Elena Semetchko

They used similar pre-written letters. As I doubt that she ever went to Moscow, I discovered that her true location was in Omsk. I also sent information to Russian Police, hoping this would start an investigation and at least find the group. The best result I hope for is successful prosecution for online fraud. I also posted her information on any other blacklists I could find to help raise awareness of this syndicate.

Thank you

I will be very thankful to you if you can meet me at the Airport!
I will arrive to you on Tuesday, 7 May
I shall inform number of flight, the terminal and an arrival time probably Monday or on Sunday.
more in detail look at the end of the letter. I copied the information of agency I hope so much it's a good day for you to meet me! I am so glad to see that we are almost near our goal,and our meeting
wait for us. I think I will call  you from airport before my flight.
You know I booked tickets on Tuesday, 7 May flight and I will buy them before my intervew. 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 need about 980 US dollars from your side with all travel needs and living here till my flight! (I had 1180 dollars, but flight from Hantimansiisk, opening visa, medical insurance and all travel needs costed about 800 dollars).
For truth I did not expect I will need to buy roundtrip tickets, but now I see that its a very strict rule.
I was sure that my mom will help me becasue she promised but now she sent letter that it is possible only in a few months or so because of family problems.and she can't send transfer now.I was in the bank to try to ask them about loan but they tell I have to have something to stay them  and I have nothing to stay because I have only a few dress and things,some perfume and it is all I have,and small gift for you from  russia with love.
please send it today by Western Union or Money Gram
I will write you details:
Send it to russia, Gulfiya Shoutanova ! This is my full name!
Also I've got an advice to send you a scan copy of my passport
in case you need to confirm my details.
this is my full name used in all official documents. They said this is all info you need.
But please for any case write down more info. The address where I'm staying:
Moscow, Mihaylowa 37, fl-10 post code 109428. I rent a small room In an apartment of an old policeman here, it's
cheaper then hotel.The address of the closest Western Union (or MoneyGram) here is:
"PROM-INVEST-BANK" 2-ja Institoutskaja, 6,stroenie-1
I have some money but it's not enough to complete my trip.
Please send me 980 US dollars and I will complete my trip!
After it please write me all details about the transfer -
your FULL NAME and Money Transfer Control Number.!!
I will call you as soon as I receive it.
When I receive the money I will pay for my trip and only then
the embassy will put all final stamps on my documents.
I've bought you few souvenirs with Russian attributes!!! I'm
sure you will like them! If you need something more please let me
know, they are not expensive. Also I bought two boxes of Russian
chocolate! I hope so much when I come to you we will like each other!

hello,  i am understand...ok.. but I not understand you...will you help me or no?
I have good news: my mother sent me 90 dollars (my mom has sold all her jewelry) now I need 890.
I do my best to our meeting occurs as soon as possible!!! I can not receive money  without "transfer control number".
they have told me about it in bank. This categorical rule! tomorrow I will get "money transfer control number" from mom and will go to bank.
Unfortunately the time goes very slowly. I would like to pack my luggage right now to get on plane to go to you. I want to see you. I want to find peace in your arms.
When I close my eyes I imagine our meeting. Do you imagine our meeting? My heart is going to jump out of my chest when I think about it.
I feel I always want such man. I’m dying without you. I have never been such in love before.  When I arrive I won’t have any white flag in my hands.
I’ll submit to you completely. I’ll be yours forever. Kiss you and embrace you. I want to say that I can hardly bear to stay in Moscow.
When will I be able to touch you? Tell me the day when I will be able to get on plane and to fly to you? I finish my letter.
I’m waiting for good news from you! Can I still hope? Will you help me?  I need $890
I’m very glad that you replied me. I thought that telling about money, I have lost you.
In Russia it’s often occurs with men. I suggest it is for hard economic situation in our country. Men don’t need women with their love.
I don’t want to believe that the quantity of real men diminishes.
To send money through Western Union or Money Gram you need to:
1. Find a local Western Union or Money Gram office (they are usually located in the banks and post offices)
2. Fill in their send form with my name: Gulfiya and my surname: Shoutanova
along with my country: Russia (my city - Moscow) location and the amount you're sending - 890 USD
3. Take a copy of the receipt that they give to you that contains your full name and the money transfer control number (or reference#).
please write me all details about the transfer - your FULL NAME and Money Transfer Control Number or if it Money Gram - reference#.!!
I can not receive money  without "money transfer control number or reference#"
The address of the closest Western Union (or MoneyGram) here is:
"PROM-INVEST-BANK" 2-ja Institoutskaja, 6,stroenie-1
my adress IN MOSCOW: Moscow, Mihaylowa 37, fl-10 post code 109428
mmm......address of Western Union in Moscow is not necessary to know.
I wrote to you, the nearest bank for me IN MOSCOW! the Bank of the recipient can be ANY!
I'm very alone in Moscow.
The elegance of this city doesn't interest me. Soon we'll be together?
You can not imagine how tired I am.
I have done everything I must and now I am waiting for you only!
My heard is bleeding when I see grief in letters. ok
..write to me pls beautiful letter!

I  have  get money my dear!!
Like I told you I was  interviewed  at  the  Embassy about my visa. I was asked a lot of different  questions, like my background, salary, the aim of my arrival to the Australia and other form questions. Thanks God the interview went well and  my  visa  is  ready  to  be  issued.  I was so happy to hear such wonderful  news,  since  in fact it means, that we have to wait just a few days to be finally together. I would finally kiss you and give you the  warmest  hug and it would be for real indeed. But I was also told
about  one  stupid thing which I must do. Now they have new rules this rule  is  not  official.  I am so nervous and I even don't know how to tell  you  that.  You  see I have to show 2500$ at the Customs here in Moscow and in your country. It is bad news.. :-(
Good news - today I have received a transfer from my daddy 990. I did not expect!!! I  pay for the ticket by father's money! Thanks you. I shall bring your money back.
In embassy demand 2500 from me. You had sent me 930!  I need now 1570! all sum (930+1570) I shall bring with myself! As I was explained  that each person  from former republics of Soviet Union arriving to your country should have this amount of money. It is necessary to prove my "financial stability" and ability to travel In the Australia and to pay for all charges. It is necessity, because many people
especially single women arriving to your country do a lot of crime or something illegal. Now the rules to pass the Customs are harder especially after terrorist actions which happen in your and my country. Now I can pass customs only showing this money to prove. I understand, that it is a good rule for your country from the point of view of safety. But what shall we do now? I even couldn't imagine this will be such big sum of money 2500$. My dear,if only we knew about this stupid rule, we would prepare for that. We are so close to each other but we need to solve this problem. please understand that I do not need to spend this 2500$, I only need to show at customs to pass it. Unfortunately for example your support letter will not help me. I am now far from friends and I can not expect for their help. And even if I were near my family and friends now they would still not help me because they don't have this sum of money. My dear, now I hope only for your help. I shall pray God about it. The happiness is so close, but I cannot make anything. It is not in my power. if I don't pass the Customs now as planned my visa will become
invalid and I will not be able to enter the Australia durig at least a few years. I am shocked and you are my only hope in this situation.
We cannot lose each other, especially now. The positive moment in this situation is that I repeat
againI don't need to spend this money,I will only show it at the Customs. I need only show money, I shall not spend it. I am very much worried. You are my sunshine in the darkness because in this world full of cruely you managed somehow to get deep into my heart. You are really a man and I ask you not to give up. Maybe if you don't have this money you can borrow from your friends for a few days and I will give it to you as soon as we meet at the airpot. Please try to get the money.
I need 1570 usd!!

And now I need to collect  1700$. Tell me can  you to do it today in 1-2 hours?
It's difficult for me to ask you for help! I hope you'll understand me.
I've never asked anyone for anything like this so I feel ill at ease.
The only thing that makes me do it is my great desire to be with you.
I hope it won't be an unsolvable problem for you.
Our lifes depend for happiness on money. It's so unfair!
I want to come to you, to hug you to feel you're real and it wasn't just a dream.
I can't wait to be together with you. If we managed to create serious and trustful relationships,
I would be the happiest woman in the world.
After a long time I feel I've found MAN!!!
I'm absolutely honest with you now!!!
I begging God to give me a chance to meet you. I want to know you better and experience happiness.
I don’t want to think it all can end soon and just my words would stay beside me.
It’s a bad final if we are not together! It’s a bad final for our story, a sad one!
