Feedback


I am writing to thank you for offering your excellent anti-scam guide. I was contacted by a Russian woman via match.com and had no idea she was after my money. I began to travel down the road to being scammed when somehow I found your web site. I began to see the warning signs that you describe in your Anti-Scam Guide, so I changed my approach. I wrote her a letter according to your recommendations. Since then I have not heard back from her.

The service you provide is extremely valuable and I will not hesitate to recommend it to others.

Sincerely,
David R.

Katya Strelkova (Yoshkar-Ola, Russia)

I'm a divorced dad of 3. I started receiving e-mails from Katya from my ad on friendfinder. She was using the name 1katusha@friendfinder.com. At first I was excited by her, but it became apparent very quickly that she was not answering my questions and the style of writing would change with each letter. She was also extremely vague or gave no reply at all to my questions. I first received a letter from her on January 19th, followed by letters on the 27th, 28th, and then from January 31st-febuary 8th. The last letter resulting in her requesting money for a visa and plane tickets. All of her letters are exactly the same as the others I've seen under her name and they are exactly like the letters listed under Natalya Jitinkina also from Yoshkar-Ola. She asked for me to send money via Western Union to her. Her letters to me are exactly the same as others so all I'll give the addresses she sent me.

As of now the last letter I received was the one asking for money. I wrote her back explaining that I didn't have the money now and we should be patient. I think now I'll keep sending her large pics and see how long I can  waste her time.

Ina Adamova (Minsk, Belarus)

I met  Ina Adamova about three months ago. At first she sent me mails which I answered again and again and which got more and more loving with time. I have saved all of these mails. This is good because now I can use them as evidence  for the deceitful intentions which Miss Adamova had. I envited her to come to Germany and she was completely enthusiastic and informed me that what will cost the visa would her find out at once. She informed me that the visa and the insurance will cost $ 175.

As a simple pediatrician, she informed me so she cannot afford the amount, what I absolutely understood. I considered this amount acceptable and referred her euros on January 14th, 203. This was the last day I heard of Mrs Adamova of it, too. I have sent her two e-mails since then and she hasn't answered either. I sent a third and it came back as undeliverable. I only found out now through the internet that I have been scammed. I will today write to the Belorussian embassy in Berlin and contact Interpol as well as FBI. My great efforts are only to see Ina Adamova in front of court and hope that I create this.  My money which I have sent to Mrs Adamova isn't aching. It only hurts to have been deceived in such a disgraceful way.  I only can hope that the Belorussian government as well as all states of former USSR concerned get a grip on it and cooperate here with all states.

Irina Smirnova (Omsk, Russia)

I recieved a yahoo ad response from a pretty young lady named Irina Smirnova from Omsk, Russia.. She also claims to be 26. And work in a school teaching chemistry. I found her name on your site and while the pictures do not match, content found in the form letter from Marina Lyzhina was very much the same and a simalar M.O.- Fast to fall in love.. A reference to the same aunt Olga when describing visa options and costs. And the same address posted with Irina Smirnova (Omsk)-2, and she asked for money to be sent to

I think, that such habit is not a gift. I want to inform, that I do not smoke, and I do not drink strong drinks. But sometimes I like to drink in the good company a small glass of grape vine, though it happens very seldom. I want to say, that I am able well to play a piano, I have finished musical school, I've studied for 6 years. I Want to inform, that I live with my mum. I have the father. My grandfather unfortunately has died, 7 years ago. I want to say, that I like various music, but mostly classical. I want to be serious. My relations with you are to find love and to create happy family. I will be pleased, if you want the same. I want to say, that I write to you from an office computer. Unfortunately I have no the computer at home. I hope, that it will not be a problem. I hope you'll answer me soon.

I live in city Yoshkar-Ola. There are perfect nature and circle of woods. She will prepare pies which are made in the furnace. They are very delicious and fragrant. You probably never ate such tasty pies. My feelings with each letter to you are becoming stronger and stroner. I talked to the mum about our relations. I told her some phrases from your letter and she said that you are probably honour man and your feelings are sincere about your relations to me, but you should not hurry up with acceptance of the serious decision, you should understand the feelings. We with you as two climbers which rise in a mountain, I am on the one side, and you are on the other, and the final point is the top on which we will meet. We should climb to the top not looking on obstacles which can will meet on our way, and then everything will be very well. I shall wait for your answer.

Letter 4

Hi my dear Thomas! It's a very big pleasure to read your letter. Yesterday I had a lot work and was very tired. I want to say more about myself! My work consists in treating and preventing children diseases. It is very necessary work. I have sliding work schedule. It once in afternoon, other time in night. I like my work very much. I have a dog at home. He is a large but very kind dog. When I am playing the piano he tries sing under the music. I am playing different music. I like music of the composers such as Bach, Shopen, Mozart and others. My favorite food are sea products, and also various fruit salads, but I also can prepare other dishes. I am a very good cook. In free time I like to go for a walk in a wood or on lake, when warm weather. In winter evenings I love laying in beds to read the romantic books, and also to make a wool of the ram for a sweater and scarfs. I also very much love sports. I to be engaged in gymnastics. Also I watch football, hockey, basketball on the TV. I am very happy, that I have found you. I always wait for your new photos and pictures. My city is small it is near Moscow, and it 150 kilometers far from the city Kazan. My grandmother sends you a big hello! She taught me to how make tasty pies.

Letter 5

Hi my dear Tom! I am very glad to receive news from you again and again. I like to prepare various tasty meals very much. I shall prepare to you the most tasty dishes at ours meeting. I am living alone with my mum. My daddy left us when I was only 6 years old. I do not have brothers and sisters. It's a pity. I live in a beautiful city. I unfortunately still do not have telephone. I've worked hard for the last year to earn money for the telephone, but we are still unable to pay for it's installation. I want to hear you very much, but I to think, when we meet we shall not only speak with each other, but also greater! I very much like to read your letters, they are giving a lot of pleasure to me. With each your letter I am understanding more and more what will turn out. I am already taking our relations much more seriously. My opinion that the most important thing between man and woman is the complete trust, I hate when people lie and deceive each other. As I consider in that moment of life we have to accept the conciliatory proposals, you see it is the important part of the relation between the man and woman. You probably think that I am too serious, but I simply do not want to be mistaken in a choice of the future husband. At this moment my feelings to YOU already much more than friendship. I am understanding that you are honour man. Your words you write me warms my soul and heart. It so is wonderful that there is a man is in this world, to whom I am not indifferent. It is pleasant for me to receive letters from you and feelings which I thus test to not pass by words. Probably on it I shall finish and with the large impatience. I shall wait for your next letter. Strong I hugs and kisses. 
Yours Katya.

Letter 6

Hi my dear Tom! I've awaken early today to make various fruit salads. I do not have a lot of food, I keep my figure and I'm constantly jogging a little after work. I shall be very glad to receive your new photos. I shall print them on the color printer and place them above my bed in a sleeping room. My mum likes to read your letters too. I am translating them to Russian and we reading them together with my mum. I was never married, but I want to marry very much. I never had sexual contacts! It is very pleasant to me to find out that by mutual understanding each other, you see it is a very important fact in our 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 my salary. It probably will be ridiculous but I have earned forty dollars for this month. Well, we shall not speak about problems which rise on our way. Write me as often as possible, I like to read your letters very much, they giving me pleasure in life, giving me chance to believe that I'm loved by a man somewhere far away from me, it raises my mood at once, it would be desirable to live and to believe that we shall meet. I shall wait for your answer today. I send you many kisses and hugs. Every minute you're in my heart.
Forever yours, 
Katya.

And this is where it will stop with me. hope the rest of the folks out there find out before its to late.

Lubov (Luba) Bazhenova (Tyumen, Russia)

I've been around this block a few times now, so I knew what to expect, and simply played along till the money request came through. The M.O. is the same, and all the discrepancies (Father dead, father alive...Works with children in a hospital, works in a library...Never answers questions, etc, etc.) I've seen her name on your list before, but different letters and photos. Thought i'd better share this in hopes of helping someone else.

Lubov Gavrilova (Tomsk, Russia)

I am an american 39 years old; my e-mail address is: msoller68@msn.com. And until I was scammed I was in search of a love, a wife for a family and a future. I can't be sure where the contact came from as I was surprised she had it. She originally contaced me in Oct of 2001 and our last contact was End of Jan 2002. Her letters in the beginning where very elabroate, but they be came fewer and less detailed. Most of the content early was just as friends would talk. Then they became letters with talk of love and such. In Nov of 2001 was her first request for money(travel papers) which I sent (260$). All money transactions where by  western union to: Lubov Gavrilova, Gazpormbank Tomsk, Russia. In DEC 2001 she asked for $630 for a ticket to the US which I sent again. I heard from her a few more times after that promising to come to the US as soon as possible. But everytime seemed that something happened where she couldn't. My last letter from her was on Jan 25, 2002, I think she knows I know she scammed me. I have sent numerous letters trying to find anything out, but never a response. I don't want you to be a victim too.  
Her e-mail was: lubkagavril@krovatka.net (Lubov gavrilova)

Ludmila Durnitsina/Raisa Adamova (Tver, Russia)

I am a recently divorced 41 year old man from America. I have submitted my profile to several American Dating Services but never used my "home" e-mail address to keep the junk mail down, but "Ludmila" sent me a letter to it. I was suspicious from the begining and started checking sites like yours and finally found her on Scam Alert as Raisa Adamova (III) so I wanted to notify your site as well. She was very cautious to ask for money, but she mentioned how expensive the internet cafe was and how sick her aunt was. I never sent her money because of my suspicions, but here is the final message with the hook. Attached also are pictures of her as Raisa Adamova.

1st letter

Hi, my dearest friend, *****! 
I am writing you from Russia. I have seen your picture and decided to use my chance to get acquainted with you. I know that somewhere in this world lives my second half . And Internet is a good way to find him. So why not to try to get to know each another? I believe that I need to tell you more about myself. My name is Ludmila. I live in Russia, city called Tver. So, my height is for about 168cm and weight is for about 58 kg. I was born on July 8,1976. I am a christian. And what about you? To have a better idea of my appearance you can look at my picture which is attached to this letter. I want to apologize for some mistakes in my letter. You see, I am not very good at English but I am studying it hard myself and hope to prove my knowledge someday. As for my family, I am an only child in my family. I have neither sisters no brothers. My parents are divorced for long time already. My father left us when I was still a little girl and I haven't seen him since that time. It is really very sad and I am always very upset thinking about it. So I am looking for the person who will be a reliable husband, friend, lover for me and who loves children because I adore children and would like to have a happy, friendly family and our children to live in the atmosphere of joy and happiness. It is my dream to create my own family and to present all my love , care and tenderness to my future husband and children. I have many interests and I will tell you about it in brief. Well, I can't imagine my life without music. I get up with music and go to bed with it.J I always listen to music when I do something at home and it helps me to be in a high spirit. I like everything from classical to modern music. Usually it depends on my mood. From modern foreign music, I prefer Elton John, Madonna, Joe Cocker, Houston, etc. I always try to find some time during the day to read a book. Usually I do it before going to bed. I prefer Russian classics, such as Pushkin, Lermontov, Chekhov, Tolstoy, Dostoevski and many others. I have re-read them many times already and every time I take one of these books, it is like I am reading it for the first time. I am sure you have heard about these writers. Sometimes I don't mind to read something from the modern literature, detective stories or novels. I do it just for fun. Sport is a great part of my life. I go to the gym twice a week and also do aerobics. It helps me to be in a good shape and in a high spirit. When I am training, I forget about all problems and hardships in my life. I love my friends a lot and I have many of them. They are all very different and it is always a great pleasure to see them. Sometimes we go to the night clubs but do it seldom because it is rather expensive for me. We like just to walk around the town and talk about different things. We often go to visit each another, it so nice to sit at home with a cup of hot tea in the cold winter evening. We often go to the cinema and enjoy our time there. When I watch a movie, it is like I am getting to that unusual for me world full of emotions, passion, love and tenderness. You see I am very romantic and I like romantic dinners with the candles, surprises, night walks under the stars and many, many another things and some day I hope to experience all these with my beloved man. Well, I will close here for today and leave something for tomorrowJ I am waiting impatiently for your reply and hope to get to know as much as possible about you. I really like you and have very serious intentions. So feel free to ask me everything you are interested in. Take care and have a good day! Hope to hear from you very soon. 
Bye! 
Ludmila.

5th Letter

Hi, sunshine *****! Yes, I understand your words. Every morning I open my eyes and think about you. And I run to the Internet cafe again with the hope to get your letter. So at last I am able to read it and to write you, my dearest. Isn't it a happiness? The only thing makes me sad is that you are so far away from me. There is a distance between us but nothing will stop me from seeing you. With each day my feelings to you become stronger. And I am so afraid to lose you. I want to share everything with you and to be near you, just to feel your warmth. I dream about it every day. You really drive me crazy, now I can think only about you. And I don't need anyone except you. I want us to be together, to make love, to enjoy the time we spend together, just to watch movies, to cook together, to listen to music, to go out, to do everything which is called - family! Well, I will better stop here, because I don't want you to think that I am weirdJ But I am really crazy about you. There is no minute when I don't think about you. * Well, I promised to tell you about my visit to my aunt. She is very ill and we do everything to help her. My salary is very small but I will spend all the money I have just for her to recover. The medicine is very expensive here and sometimes I hate my country for such a hard life we have here. Products, medicine, clothes- everything costs a lot here but sometimes we don't get our salaries for several months. But I am not complaining, don't think so. I just need to share it with you, You are the dearest person for me now and when I talk to you, I feel much better. I love my mom and my aunt, they are my family now and I want you to be the part of my family too, though you are already the part of it. Hope that you are not against of it. You are a very close and dear person to me and I thank the God that he gave me the opportunity to find you in this big-big world. I need to close here and to go to work. Take care, my dear and smile for me!!!!!!!!!!!! Bye! Write you tomorrow. 
Yours forever. 
Ludmila.

I am sure everything will be Ok and the destiny will work for us and we will be happy together. I often think about us and try to imagine our life together. Sometimes I feel you so near and close to me. I even feel you on the distance. I feel when you are in a high spirit and when you are sad. I am happy when you are happy. I want to be with you so much and I though about the ways for us to be together. So I tried to do something for us and decided to go to the Embassy to check what I need to come to you. So, to come to your country I need to make some paper work and to get visa. It will take some time, of course, and to pick up many documents from my side. But I will do everything which depends from me. But there is one thing which upsets me very much. You see, I need to pay for getting visa. And you know that my salary is too small for it. I don't want to complain but you know that I have a difficult financial situation here. I have a great desire to come to you, to see you at last and only money separate us from each another. I love you so much, honey and I don't want to lose you. Nobody can help me with it. Of course, I could ask my Mom to help me but she doesn't have such money though she would like to help us. I am honest and sincere with you. I hope that you understand me and that you will do it for me. I already gave some papers to them and they made a file for me. All I need now is to pay them money. So it will be, $45 for visa and $30 for registration, also I need to pay for medical exams - it will be $90, $60 for the interview, and I need to get a foreign passport, it will cost for about $50 and for some another expenses I may have. So in general I will need for about $290. You have to send the money by Western Union. You need to send me your full name, address, amount of money and the control number (MTCN). You need my full name and address, so here it is (LUDMILA DURNITSINA, Russia, Tver, Lenina str. 95 - 249. ) Honey, I will need to pay them in a week, so, please, try to send them this week. I really hope that you understand my situation. I want to see you very much but without your help I can't do it just because I don't have such money. Money is nothing but they help to overcome all the difficulties on our way to each another. Sorry, dear, if it upsets you. I just think that we need to trust each another and to share everything. Hope that you agree with me. Just imagine that in short time we could be together. And there is only one problem now which can be solved with your help, dear. I love you so much, you are the best in my life and our meeting could be the happiest event for us. Miss you badly honey and waiting impatiently for your soon reply. 
Yours forever 
Ludmila

Lyudmila Durnitsina/ Raisa Popova (Saratov, Russia)

She originally contacted me on a site call automatch@neodates.com on 1/24/02 and invited me to return email to Lyuda_500@fromru.com. We have been corresponding since even today. She's a patient lady....just asked for money. $290 for visa, medical exam, interview, registration, passport, money for expenses. I've been suspicious right along but couldn't get much information. When I asked for an address I was give scrambled info and no postal code. I ask several times she just sent it to me. I will enclose a few of her exchanges. What got me here was a site called flowers-to-russia.com I thought I would send her something to verify the address information. They sent me a message back in less than a half hour telling me they didn't believe it was a real address I should check this black list site. Sure enough she's here. I don't know what to do with her at this point she doesn't know I know. I'll check further with this site and see. Enclosed is a few emails and photos Thanks so much for this site....saved me a  ton. You'll see her English has gotten much better with practice. If I can be of any further assistance please ask.

Letter # 1 

Hi, my dearest friend Gaetano! I am writing you from Russia. I have seen your picture and decided to use my chance to get acquainted with you. I know that somewhere in this world lives my second half . And Internet is a good way to find him. So why not to try to get to know each another? I believe that I need to tell you more about myself. My name is Lyudmila. My height is for about 168 cm and weight is for about 58 kg. I was born on July 8,1974. To have a better idea of my appearance you can look at my picture which is attached to this letter. I want to apologize for some mistakes in my letter. You see, I am not very good at English but I am studying it hard myself and hope to prove my knowledge someday. As for my family, I am an only child in my family. I have neither sisters no brothers. My parents are divorced for long time already. My father left us when I was still a little girl and I haven't seen him since that time. It is really very sad and I am always very upset thinking about it. So I am looking for the person who will be a reliable husband, friend, lover for me and who loves children because I adore children and would like to have a happy, friendly family and our children to live in the atmosphere of joy and happiness. It is my dream to create my own family and to present all my love , care and tenderness to my future husband and children. I have many interests and I will tell you about it in brief. Well, I can't imagine my life without music. I get up with music and go to bed with it.J I always listen to music when I do something at home and it helps me to be in a high spirit. I like everything from classical to modern music. Usually it depends on my mood. From modern foreign music, I prefer Elton John, Madonna, Joe Cocker, Houston, etc. I always try to find some time during the day to read a book. Usually I do it before going to bed. I prefer Russian classics, such as Pushkin, Lermontov, Chekhov, Tolstoy, Dostoevski and many others. I have re-read them many times already and every time I take one of these books, it is like I am reading it for the first time. I am sure you have heard about these writers. Sometimes I don't mind to read something from the modern literature, detective stories or novels. I do it just for fun. Sport is a great part of my life. I go to the gym twice a week and also do aerobics. It helps me to be in a good shape and in a high spirit. When I am training, I forget about all problems and hardships in my life. I love my friends a lot and I have many of them. They are all very different and it is always a great pleasure to see them. Sometimes we go to the night clubs but do it seldom because it is rather expensive for me. We like just to walk around the town and talk about different things. We often go to visit each another, it so nice to sit at home with a cup of hot tea in the cold winter evening. We often go to the cinema and enjoy our time there. When I watch a movie, it is like I am getting to that unusual for me world full of emotions, passion, love and tenderness. You see I am very romantic and I like romantic dinners with the candles, surprises, night walks under the stars and many, many another things and some day I hope to experience all these with my beloved man. Well, I will close here for today and leave something for tomorrowJ I am waiting impatiently for your reply and hope to get to know as much as possible about you. I really like you and have very serious intentions. So feel free to ask me everything you  are interested in. Take care and have a good day! Hope to hear from you very soon. Bye! Lyudmila 

Letter #2 

Sunshine!!!!!!! One more day without you. Only your letters help me not to be sad. Today I am going to visit aunt Sveta. Mom can't go with me, she needs to work. And after I finish my work, I will go to see her. She still didn't recover and I worry about her a lot. She is not a young girl and she needs my care. I am in a low spirit today, you are far from me and there are so many problems. There is one more thing which upsets me, I already told you that the service of the Internet cafe is rather expensive and I can't write you long letters any more. I still haven't got my salary and I almost don't have money. It upsets me very much. I hate this situation. Money is nothing. But at the same time we can't live without it. I wish I could have much money to write as much as I can and as often as I wish. But alas! Ok, let's close this sad topic. I really need to go, dear. I miss you badly. Tomorrow I will go to the church and will pray for you and for us. And I will thank the God that I have you in my life now. Thank you. My address: Durnitsina Lyudmila, Russia, Saratov, Pushkin's street 39-45. Kisses and hugs, Your one and only. Lyudmila.

My name is Faron and I am a single white american man that works in the construction field, I am 33 years old who had placed an ad on friendfinder.com and about a month later the scammer(s) found me and sent me my first email, its identical to the first email all of you are being sent. so far I have received 9 emails from her/them and I know I'll get one maybe 2 more today. Its an on going story as its still in progress, you see I got very lucky because in my third email from the scammer was, unknown to them, an email address that had been attached to it, you see the email address belonged to someone who'd been scammed before and he'd sent her an embedded return message that sends him everything that goes out of the scammers email address. I BBC my second letter to both thinking she (the scammer) may want me to send to that email address instead, when I did I was then informed that its all a big scam so as of then I've been "toying" with these people trying to gather information.
