Feedback


I was contacted, out of the blue, by a Russian woman. I decided I would correspond with her. I made it clear it would be friends only. We used email so we were able to write each other daily. After about a week and a half she suddenly claimed she loved me asked for $350 for a visa to come visit me for 3 months. 

I remembered your site and came back to read your black list about scams. She is not on it but her email letters and photos fit the pattern of the scammers you list. When I replied I told her I knew what was going on and I would not send her money. I haven't heard back and her email address doesn't work now.

Thank you very much for saving me from this scammer!

Ekaterina (Kemerovo, Russia)/Elena Koldyreva (Orenburg, Russia) 

I am a 52 y.o. American male teaching English in Korea. I am also a good-looking gentleman that has been around the block including Kemerovo,  all over Russia and Ukraine. 

I received a letter in March at Friend Finder from a young lady calling herself Ekaterina (happy251490). Her personal ad was pending. I wrote and said, "Send pictures" and she did. I replied that she needed to look for a puppy. She wrote back with basically the same letter that Michael received on page 90 of the Black List May 2, 2002 - page 1. The only problem with the letter that she sent me was that she signed out as OLGA. For me, that went over like a lead canoe. I wrote her back and told her to tell me about her day at school, her best student, and her worst. Like an idiot, she did! And, it was great!!! The cameras should have been rolling. 

Letter 

"Hi my dear friend Joe!!! I am sorry that did not write to you so long. I had access to the Internet because of payment (remember, she is using the free Internet at the school she teaches at). I very strongly missed for you. When have connected the Internet, I was happiest on light. Today I had bad  day at school. I have found a new technique on grammar of Russian. I think that this technique would allow children to understand grammar better and fastly. But the chief of school has not approved it. It(he) began to shout at me and to speak that I am engaged not in the business, it(he) began to offend and humiliate me. It(he) spoke that there are experts who create the special program for studying Russian. I very much was upset after conversation with the chief of school. My mood was gone. I left in the study and cried much. I thought that I shall leave work. Mine Schoolchildren to see as I pay and have asked me why I pay. I have told them that I shall not work more with them.They very much were upset and began to ask to remain me. At one mine the schoolgirl tears on eyes have appeared. I might not give up to them and have decided to not give up work. Your letters this only thing that cheers up me. I like your letters, when I read them I feel as we approach. We are Far apart. But it does not prevent our dialogue. Though I already thought, that It is absolutely enough of dialogue through the Internet not to understand each other more strongly. What you think of it? I would like to see you not only on a photo. But I not I know as it probably, because we very much far apart. You to me like And I think that our relations can be deeper. I do not know as to explain It is by words. I simply feel it. Your letters make my mood high. I am becomes joyful on soul. I want to ask you to write to me your address, I am possible I shall write to you the letter. I do not remember you wrote whether or not, I can not save your letters, because them can read somebody another. My address Russia,630058, city of Kemerovo, street of Lenina 14-23. But I think that it is not necessary to write to me because can steal The letter, and would not be desirable for me that someone knew about that about what we with you we think. I I hope you me understand. I shall wait your letters and I hope that you will write to me soon. I think that Sometime we shall meet you. I would like to arrive to America, to meet With you to see as you live. I want it because I begin to understand that Between us there is something greater than the friendship seems to me what is it feeling Trust to each other, it seems what is it lovefriend, I seem that you Feel it. I wait for your answer, it is very important to me to know that you think of that that I have written To you. I want to learn(find out) much about you. How at you an affair? How mood? I to think, that at you all is good. I to want it am very strong. I shall ask the god that you were healthy and happy. I the christian and frequently to go to church. It is very important for me. You to visit(attend) church? What you to ask the god? I always to ask him(it) that  at all all was good also everyone were healthy. I to know, that it(he) to  hear me and to be good only for people. Each person in the world should live well and happily regardless of the fact that it(he) to make bad. You agree with me? I to want to know your point of view on this question. Your friend Ekaterina!!!" 

I went through the whole Black List and found her on page 47. Took her picture into Photo Shop and there was no question it was the same woman. I wrote the following short letter. I was crushed when you did not continue writing to me. And, I was even more disappointed when you did not throw me your pitch for money because I really wanted to hear it. Check out the Black List on page 47! Good stuff!!! The nice thing about Embassies, Interpol, and dating sites is that they accept complaints and cross-reference all communications. There sure are a lot of women using happy ID's. And, I be happy, too! 

The problem that I have with all of this is that I wrote to Friend Finder after receiving another letter from a woman calling herself happy251492 a month after the first letter. It is the same person (happy251490). I identified both as scammers. I checked a week later. Happy251492 is still listed. I wrote them again and suggested that they were nearing gross negligence. They have done nothing to date including ever e-mail me back. There is also a happy251491 on the Black List. Anyone that is scammed by this person(s) should contact me c/o heavensflower4u@hotmail.com and I will attest to Friend Finder's failure to act in a reasonable manner. 


Ekaterina Belosova/Lubov Bazhenova (Chelyabinsk, Russia) 

My name is Crage and I'm a 40 yr old engineer from Chicago. As a apart of signing up with Yahoo, I also registered with their Friendfinder service. I received an interesting response from Katrindior@pisem.net on March 31st that I wrote back to. "Ekaterina Belosova" was "her" name and at first, she sounded very warm and real. I'd seen scam letters before, but this was much more personal - at first. By the sixth letter, I'd started to notice that she never answered any of my questions directly, but had a habit of writing fantasy-like senarios for us to be in....it smelled funny! When I pressed a bit for answers, she threw the money request at me (7th letter, 4/21/02). I sounded so scripted and mass-produced, I knew this was a scam. She then decided to change her address to Katrinbel@pisem.net and wrote 2 times more before disappearing. I checked out this website and sure enough I found the same pic 

Best Regards, 

Crage Kentz

Letters 

Hi my new friend Crage! I am very glad, that you have not disregarded my letter. It is pleasant for me because, that I have liked you. I shall continue the story about myself. As I already spoke you, I live one without parents. I provide myself with all necessary. I have no children because it was never married, and without a marriage I do not want to have children. I like to listen to various music, the direction of music is not of great importance for me. The main thing that music was good though I give the greater preference to tool music. To me delivers great pleasure to go to theatres. I like sometimes remaining a house in loneliness to dance under quiet music, ah if at this moment n

I am glad, that have found to myself the friend in America. It so is interesting to correspond with you through such big distance. And letters come so quickly, what even it is possible to have time to state each other ideas which have just arisen in your head. I have now thought of that as we have got acquainted with you.

Here in Russia I long searched for myself worthy for the man, but and have not found, and you to seem to me 

Hi my lovely friend. Thank for your fine letters. I am sure in that that you do not forget me for one minute, I think of you all time too.

Hi my dear Crage. I hope, that my last letter has not caused you an attack of bewilderment. You probably will ask me, " why so fast? " I shall hasten to answer you, that I simply not could hold in myself these feelings more, and they have escaped outside. I simply did not know, how to you to tell about it at once, you see then you would not understand me. I never tested such feelings to anybody to another.

Ekaterina Strelkova (Yoshkar-ola, Mari-El, Russia) 

My name is Terry, I'm a 42year old single American. I got a response from Katya through Dreammates.com. I have been in contact with her now for about 3 weeks. She writes about how she wants to marry me. How she has a girlfriend who works in the tourist company, and she promised to help with the information on getting her vise & passport. After about 2 weeks she asked for $500. I did not send money, I kept checking on what she had to do to get a passport & visa & i wasn't like she was saying, That's when I knew it was a scam. I decided to send  lowers to the address she gave to see what would happen, there was no such address. Like the scam warning page said, she would not answer a lot of questions, & the letters they showed were the same I was getting. She wanted the money sent Western Union to; Ekaterina Strelkova. 17 Petrova st., apt. 18 Yoshkar-Ola, Mari-El, 424000 Russia The Western Union office address: Guta Bank 8 Vashskaya st. Yoshkar-Ola Mari-El Russia 

I haven't heard from her since I did not send the money when I said I would. I just found this site tonight & found her on the black list. I have already written to Support@mail.ru & webmater@mail.ru & now the black list. I will file a report with the FBI. Her ad at dreammates is already off line. Here is the initial letter & the one she asked for money( I have several others). Also the new photos she is using. 

I hope this help others from getting caught up in her scam. Thank you, Terry Mascone

Dear Terry! I'm so pleased that you can understand my not so good English language, that I has learned in school and in College. I'm 171 centimeters tall, my weight is 59 kg, I have medical education, I'm a child nurse. I work in children's hospital and I look after children. I live in the city Yoshkar-Ola. It is approximately in 850 kilometers from the Moscow city. I want to say you, that I love children very much. I have an experience of dialogue directly with Russian people, but they are not adapted, it is serious also. And they drink alcohol very frequently and it not so is pleasant to me. 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. Yours, Katya.

Letters 

Hi, my dear Jam! I had the feeling inside that I will get a reply from you. So when I went to the Internet cafe I was in a high spirit.You see, I don't have telephone and my own computer at home, so I have to go to the Internet cafe to check if there is a mail from you. It was so amazing to get a letter from you, that I was smiling all the time and people looked at me like I was crazy. After getting a letter from you I went to work. I think that you are interested to know where I work. So I work as a nurse in the kindergarten. I like my profession and job very much. You already know that I adore children and when I look at them, I feel that I will be a very good mother. But at the same time I understand that it is a great responsibility and I will do my best to give everything to my baby. It is a very good weather outside. It is a very beautiful time of the year here. By the way, the New Year Day and Christmas are the holidays which I like most of all.Walking down the streets, I am thinking about you.Of course, I don't know you well and you don't know me. After some letters it may be strange for you to hear these words. The meeting will decide everything but I have the feeling that everything will work for us. I am sure that everything will be fine and that we could be happy together. The time will just show everything to us. As soon as we see each another we will understand it. It is just the matter of time and we need to be patient. Ok, I will send this letter to you and will go home. It is already late and the Internet cafe is rather far from my place. At this time of the day it is very difficult with the public transport. You can spend an hour at the stop to get a bus or trolley bus. But the thoughts about you warm me in this cold winter evenings. By the way, I never have been married and I do not have children. But someday I think I want to have my own children, because I really love children. All my thoughts are with you, do you will feel it? :) Warm hugs, Galina." 

Another one a little later 

"Hello my sweetheart, Jam!!!!!!! One more day without you. Only your letters help me not to be sad. Today I am going to visit aunt. 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. The weather is bad today, it is awfully cold, the sky is so gray, cloudy and the cold wind is blowing. 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. Kisses and hugs, Your one and only. Galina." And the money one "Hi, honey Jam! How are you there? I miss you badly, honey. I love you so much. I can't be apart from you, it is so hard. You are my life, I want to hug you so much, to feel your warmth, to look into your eyes, to feel myself happy and safe near you. 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 ( GALINA NAVALIHINA, Russia, Krasnoyarsk, 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 Galina."

Irina Amilijianchuk (Brest, Belarus) 

I am a divorced father of two working in the field of software marketing and sales. I am writing to substantiate the story in your 'blacklisted women' section received from Tony about a woman in Brest, Belarus who goes by the name of Irina. She is definitely the same woman Tony wrote about - she is running a scam with a "travel company" called Tamerlan Tour, and has a counterpart named V.S Yarniko. These people are scam artists-make no mistake!  The emails Irina and V.S. Yarniko used are identical to the emails Tony mentions and are as follows: Onlyforyou1900@hotmail.com Irasha87@hotmail.com Tamerlan_tour@hotmail.com 

The address where I received two hand-written letters from is as follows: 224000 Masherova, 32 Brest The Republic of Belarus Irina Amilijianchuk 

[NOTE: the name she used on her written letters matches her scammer name on your site and in Tony's letter BUT she had never used it before with me!] 

After reading Tony's account, I immediately recognized the young woman named Irina from Brest, Belarus, that I had talked to last year. She sent me the same letters - same writer, same voice, same spelling errors, and the very same letters in many cases. Apparently she sends the many letters to many men at the same time, looking for "marriage, love, and happiness", which makes sense because the letters are very one way - my questions hardly ever got answered directly. Irina also refused to see me in Belarus even though I offered many times to meet her over there - she said it was impossible. The money amounts are identical to the ones from Tony's letter; $857 and $1168. After the conversations when she knew I was not shipping money to her and Tamerlan Tour, the letters were flat, and I could tell she was "scam-spamming" me. There were other letters after the three I have here, but these three show the scam setup and how it works. I also include for you three pictures that were sent to me for Identification Purposes, should anyone else receive her pictures. 

#1 > [This is one of the first substantial letters I received from Irina (she also goes by Ira and Irina Pedrovna). Here first contact was in late March. I have not spell checked her documents to keep their authenticity intact.]: 

April 3, 2001 

Hi, my dear! I can believe that we 're getting that much close to each other, it seems the time goes to fast, but we're getting closer to each other more & more, you don't know how mush you made me happy by writing to me. Every time i open my email, the only thing i'm looking for is your letter, your beautiful email, which is all patient & your true feelings about me. Sometimes i think i'm dreaming & this not real & i'm talking to someone how is not real at all. You don't know how much i have a feeling about you & is not the day i don't think about you & this is real every time you send me your beautiful picture, it take me a long time to close it, cause from the time i open your picture make me sit & look at it, for a while, it make me freeze & i think i'm getting very close to you. I really believe in soulmates, call me sentimental of hopeless romantic but i know that some where in this word there's somebody i could just look in the eyes i know that i'm looking to my other half. I look around & ask my self why i'm not with anybody that "available", & then i know why i'm alone. This person would have to be smart, someone i could learn from; beautiful, not just of external beauty but more important beauty from the heart & soul; compassionate, someone that cares about others & try to make a different in other people's life; genuine, someone that would bring the best of my to really complement my life & the life that we'd build together; open minded; someone not afraid to explore the world & life to really find the essence of our existence; well sounds pretty tough huh, to some with all that together, well that's the reason i'm by myself but i know that if i find the person i'll do anything to be with her cause i know that a world together would be a world of discovering, a world of understanding, a world of happiness. I think about my birthday (10.04) i don't jet how to celebrate it. I have a lot of friends who'll want to come & meet me this day. I'd love to spend this day in the country. I'd love to spend this day with my dear. i also think about my vacation. I want to take the vacation next month & to spend it together with you. I'll try o collect money & if i have enough for this trip i'll come & see you. I'd love to see you so much. How do yiou think about this? I also love to see any picture you send me & be doing that you make my life going. I love to loved & i do the same for someone who i love. I try to make the best for you (give my heart). I hope we see each other close & get to know each other better. Shaun, your poem is wonderful. I like it so much. Best of all i'd love to see Niagara fall. It's my dream. And what about you? Well, thank you again for the poem. I'll write you soon. Take care, my dear. Ira.

How do you think my dear about this? I can't wait until us being together. I want you not to forget me. I want you love me & be with me all my life. With love, Ira. Take care, please, my dear.

So that's how beautiful Irina's scam works. I don't even associate the pictures anymore with the so-called Irina and V.S. Yarniko, as I would like to think the pretty face in the picture is a pawn of some unscrupulous people, and has no idea her picture is all over the 'Net. 

YOU have been warned; watch out for Irina.

Lena Gren (Lugansk,Ukraine) from Slavonic Beauty 

I am a white male from the USA and would like to report to you about a Scammer by the name of Lena Gren who I first contacted at Singles.com . Her fake address that she gave me is Lena Gren, Kv. Vostochniy 20/31, Lugansk, 91000 ( of course she has no phone). Her date of birth is September 20th. She is listed at singles.com under girlf7 and her e-mail is girlf7@ukr.net. She also has a listing 1st international Marriage Agency under the name of Anna Lavrenchenko from Lugansk and has a different birthday of Aug.29, 1982. She has a report already listed at Scam Detective under the name of Ann (Scam 0194) http://scamdetective.net/names_a2.htm . The mere fact that she comes from Slavonic Beauty Agency was the first clue to know that she is a fake. She had been trying to get me to send her money for a visa, passport and airline tickets, the usual scammer stuff. The address she gave to me for where she was living was also a fake address as I had sent someone to deliver her flowers and a card and the people who were living there said that no such person was living there. She made up some lame excuse as to why she does not live there and would not divulge her real address as she said it would create too many problems. When I pressed her for her real address her time had expired and I needed to send money to continue my conversations with her to this Slavonic Beauty Agency (see letter): 

Dear Sir, we must inform you that Elena's account is empty. And also we have to inform you that until she puts some money onto it, she will not be allowed to write any letters, Best regards, Traslation agency "Slavonic Beauty" mailto:agentstvd@ukr.net www.agentstvd.narod.ru 

This person is a definite scammer and should be placed on your list.

Ludmila Shakirova (Kazan, Russia) 

Ludmila Shakirova Kazan Russia (actually originated from Yoshkar-Ola) I am a divorced Hispanic father, 43 years old, from California. I was contacted by whatever her name is, if in fact it is a her, through Christian Singles web site. www.singlec.com. She contacted me the beginning of December and continued about twice a week. Her letters are identical to those of the canned message found under Olga Yurieva , Olga Akpulatova, Olga Fedotova and Ludmilla Vinogradova just to name a few. Her photos are in the same line as Elena Koldyreva pg.47, Maria Saleeva pg.73 and Natasha Michihina pg.78. I'll include a few letters. Too bad the last one isn't true. The Christian Singles site has been effectively removing scammers as they post up. 

She (they/he) got me for 1000 bucks. I was smelling you know what but sent the money anyway. After the last letter I was somewhat convinced. I then found this site and wasn't surprised, but almost wondering where she was on the site. well it might be 1000 bucks but, it is only money. I wish my ex had only scammed me for 1000 bucks. I am still in contact but I think the last letter is their way of calling it quits with a scamee. I have a few real friends in Russia so the taste is not all sour. I do intend to contact the authorities but action is only as loud as your money is big from what I hear. L. Duarte

Tatiana Sokolovich (Kiev, Ukraine) 

I am a white male from the USA and would like to report to about a scammer by the name of Tatiana Sokolovich from Kiev. The fake address she gave me was Tatyana Sokolovich, 9 Layocha Gavra, 115 flat, Kiev, Ukraine. Her e-mail address that she uses is sta_59@yahoo.com . She has a profile posted on Match.com under the name of may_59 and also under the profile of 231388 under Dating.com. The reasons that I became suspicious of her are: 

#1- It took almost 6 letters of asking her for her address to finally give one to me as she just seemed to avoid this question all together. 

#2- After writing to her she would take several days or even weeks to get back to me and she claimed to be very busy and not being able to use her internet cafe which was a lie as she would check her mail daily as she would log on Match.com and it showed here as logging on. 

#3- I tried to send her flowers and a card to the address that she provided me and as you will see in the report back to me that the address that she gave to me and claimed to have lived there was not true at all as the people living there had no idea who this person was and that she never lived there. (See report from delivery agent): Tatyana Sokolovich Layocha Gavra, 9, 115 flat, Kiev, Ukraine (no phone number or zip code as she does not know it ) 

- Of course she does not know it, because she DOES NOT LIVE THERE! Guys who live in that apartment have never heard about Tatyana Sokolovich, though this apartment is provided for a short or long-term rent. Maybe Tatyana has been renting it a while ago. Our agent made a photo of "her" house and "door" - enjoy! :-) 

I questioned her on this and she stated to me that yes, she had just moved to a new location, which was a total lie according to the report from the delivery agent and when I tried to get her to give me her new address, I have never heard back from her again. Even though no money requests where made directly (there were a couple of inferences made in her letters as to money and a phone card); I would use extreme caution in dealing with this person if she exists at all. 

Sincerely, 

S. H. 

Letters 

Dear Thank you very much for the greeting! I am fine and didn't disappear. I actually was waiting for you to write me. I guess you didn't receive my e-mail I sent to you. Sending some of it to you again: That would be nice to hear your voice, I agree! But I have no # at the flat I rent, so may be I could collect call you? My routine is just almost the same as I wrote you before, library, school, translating. You know what I watch Jack & Jill, do you know this show? Such a sweet, happy thing! Of course it is bald and unreal but such a nice fairy tale! That is what I do now every evening. What kind of show do you like? Did you get that earlier? I presumed you didn't because you haven't referred to that. Summer is coming on and it is getting warmer here, studies and all the routine of everyday life feels less stressful when sun is shining and sky is smiling! I am sure you will win next time! Kisses,
Tatiana. 

Dear I just think I would like to hear your voice, and as long as I don't have a phone at my place I thought I could collect call you from a post office. I have to tell you that I am a bit pessimistic about the whole thing and to hear your voice would be just logical, that is all. I really like you so far and would like to keep on getting to know you more. If I were you I wouldn't spend too much on almost complete stranger as I am, right? May be you could get that card and tell me the pin so I can call you on better rates. Doesn't that say on my favor? Kidding. But at the first place I wish to have my phone or ability to buy it myself. Don't take your high tech for granted, here it is different,
