I purchased your ANTI-SCAM Guide. Very nicely done.It is sad scammers try to take advantage of situations. It can really hurt a person beyond repair. For example I have repaired and have begun a search again. I am 43 an have been divorced for 8 years. I had given up having children with a loving wife. I have now found many ladies in your country interested. My point, if I was scammed it would be very hurtful. I probably would slam the door and forget Russian ladies like I have American. That means two people would lost out on a relationship, and the scammers won. You have help me out with your guide.Thanks again for helping with your written words. The words you wrote are very truthful. 

Sincerely Don Lant

Ekaterina Malinina 
kirova street 8-23

Well guys she found me from a date net, but she forgot to read that I was a COP! And it pays to do your home work and told her she was a scammer. Well the emails have stop but she din,t ask for any money, but it was leading that way.

Regards Didier, a smart COP in USA

Ekaterina Malinina (Russia,chelyabinsk)

You have a great site! Thanks for the service. This gal dropped her scam on me yesterday. As usual, her first letters were very sincere enough. Then they became disjointed, and the suspicions started on my part. She has sent photos with each letter, and became more personal as well. having lived in Ukraine and having been married to a Ukrainian lady, she taught me some of the tricks of other gals. My ex-wife is still a "lady" in my eyes. But that is another story. Attached is Ekaterina's last letters. Check it out guys, and learn to wise up before you pay up!!!

Mike W.

Hi, honey Mike! It is amazing to get your letter again!!!!!!!!!!!!! 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, $55 for visa and $45 for registration, also I need to pay for medical exams - it will be $80, $65 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 $295. 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. You need my full name and address, so here it is ( Ekaterina Malinina; Russia, Chelyabinsk, KIROVA STREET 8-23.). 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 Ekaterina


Galina Navalihina (Voroneg, Russia)

I was writing a beautiful Russian lady. She feel in love with me very fast.
She is a piece of work no dought. I became a bit suspicious when she asked
for 300$ for her to get a passport visa. I searched for information, on what
is required to come to the states. I found it was almost impossible for them
to get a visa just to visit. I then searched the black list, and sure enough
there she was. Her letter to another man was the same letter to me, except
for her address. She said the same thing. about wanting to feel my warmth,
and make love for days. She said to him as well as me, that she had went to
the embassy and had filed papers, and now only money stood our way, and that
she would need 300$ to get things started. Well I'm so glad I checked this
site. I had sent her the money, but was able to stop it just in time. She
will not get a dime from me. I will give to all of you her name its Galina
Navalihina. Her e-mail address to the other guy was different than the one
she gave me. The one she gave me was
Her street address she gave me was Russia,Voroneg, Puschkin str 90-295
I'm also inclosing a couple photos. I hope this helps someone not get
caught up by her. Also I know there are plenty of honest Russian women, we
just have to weed out the scam artist. I hope this will help someone. Todd

I neverwas for the husband and I have no children, but I very much would like them to  have, but from the person with whom our love would be mutual and that the child anything did not require. The main features of human character I think Sincerity, kindness, politeness and as I think, that the person it is necessary should be the respectable citizen with love to the country.

Astrology say that women-Scorpio are ver  sexual, attractive and wise as well. All my life was filled with unexpectedness.   am a sort of unpredictable person. As for my childhood, I was happy child in my family, parents loved and patted me very much. I was rather talented child with excellent memory. I wrote verses as I do it now. In my childhood I knew many poems  by heart and declared them to enjoy my parents. At school my favorite subjects were physics and mathematics. Most of all I loved astrology and nuclear physics and hated chemistry. I finished special Lyceum in mathematics and physics when I was 16. Soon after that I entered East Ukrainian State University in Lugansk. My specialty is I International Economic Relations. I worked as an economist for two years, but finally I understood that it was not my favorite profession and our company failed and I was fired. Best of all in my life I like journalism. It was my  dream to become a journalist since the very childhood. I published several articles in a local papers and some of my verses as well. I am a kind of social person like of social person, like to communicate with different people, like go outside with friends to have cook-out, to swim, to walk in the forest or simply to have a fun. I like to travel very much, but unfortunately I have no possibility to do it very often. I like everything new: new relations, meet new people, new acquaintances, I like spontaneous things very much.

Hello darling Tim!  Thank you for your lovely letter, I really appreciate your seriousness and your friendship. I like your answers and I think I can trust you,dear. Thank you for your compliments also. You are very wise person. My birthday is 5th of November, it hag already gone. I really hope our relations will become stronger each day. I consider you my good friend and that's why i do not want to have secrets from you. The truth is my problem in the lack of money to provide myself and family with food, clothes and other very necessary things.  I think you know how difficult life in Ukraine. Unfortunately now my life is not so happy to feel cheerful. I want to share with you one problem. I rely on you, I believe you, dear. I think you will understand me right. Now my mother is a housewife, father retired, I am looking for the job, and you can understand how difficult to make both ends meet. As you possibly heard, now in Ukraine very high level of unemployment take place, so more than half of young people are looking for a job now. For young girls, who wants to marry, is very difficult to find a man, who can provide their future family with necessary things, as food, as accommodation, because young people have no enough money to maintain the family. I have no my own computer and Internet at home, so I use services of Internet cafe. For me is very important to find someone, who can understand and support me. You know in our country Internet is not free of charge, it cost $2 an hour, and as far as I do not know English, translation of one letter cost me $5 per one letter. That even can be cheaper if pay $100 per month for both Internet service translations and correspondence, and we could correspond every day, even several times a day to enjoy each other. Meanwhile I have to borrow money from my girlfriend, whose parents richer than my. May be its difficult to understand for you, but unfortunately, I have to ask my parents for money, to pay for Internet services as well. I am ashamed of it,but, my dear, if you can help me to pay for our correspondence, I would be very grateful to you. I would like we could continue our correspondence to know each other better, and may be  in future we could meet and understand that we need each other, and can not live without each other, so , perhaps its destiny, who knows? So, darling, if you can help me, please let me know, I do not want to loose you, I need you. You are my kind, understanding , sympathetic man, please, do not leave me to the mercy of fate! Please understand I need your support, I am poor girl living in Ukraine, and I am in despair. Honey, I do not want to loose you because of my situation now.  I have to pay for these translations and Internet fees. Hope you will understand me. I believe that someday, may be very soon we can meet and look into each other eyes and may be will understand that we belong to each other forever! My personal information you will find below. I am waiting for your decision impatiently. I look forward to hear from you soon. Kiss you tenderly. Sincerely yours Natali.. 

Dearest Tim! It was wonderful to get your fast reply. Thank you for interesting pictures. You look good in that uniform!!! I am glad you consider me good person both inside and outside. My friends say the same. I like to help people and always try to be useful to everybody. Thank you million times for sending me that precious book and CD with church music and English disc for the computer, it is so precious gift to me,  thank you, my dear for your care very much!!! I could never imagine to meet such a beautiful person like you, Tim!!! Your friendship is my biggest treasure in the whole life!!! Your every word is so precious for me! Dear Tim, I talked to the English school authority and they said 3 month of intensive English curses cost $300 including 5 days a week lessons and all necessary textbooks. For me it is a lot of money, my parents never could afford it. Let me know if you think it is reasonable price or not for you. Of cause I didn't tell the school that you are going to help me to pay for my studying. This school is very serious, they have very experienced teaches and their graduates can work as interpreters. I think Paul is right, they could ask for much more money if they know that you are going to help me. I feel so excited when I think  that I will speak English soon! Thank you again, darling for your care about me, nobody in this life treated me as good as you, except my parents. I am happy to be your best friend and even may be more... You are so dear to me, I thank God every day for you. I admire your kind heart, your pure thoughts and your beautiful soul! You bring hope and calmness, you bring joy and happiness, I need your friendship  very much. I need you in my life. God bless you for all your doings!

I will work really hard studying English, I swear, when you com  to see me, I will be able to talk to you and I will thank you in person, I will kiss you, my dear Tim and you will see tears of gratitude and love on my eyes...

He said you must be very good person. I told him about you very good things. It is true we have had nice celebration yesterday. Anton went to his grandmother for weekend. It is about 120km form Lugansk. I agree with you may be it will be very useful for him to start to study computers before he enter the University. It is really good idea to bring that program I think! Thank you  million times!!! I consulted in a company who sells computers and printers and they have such models of printers: Canon LBP-810 2400-600 dpi  HP Laser Jet1000w 600*600dpi HP Laser Jet1200 1200*1200dpi HP Laser Jet1220 1200*1200dpi HP Laser Jet 2200 HP Laser Jet 2200DN HP Laser Jet 5000 and many others. So, I think they have very good variety to choose from,what do you think, honey? OK, darling, I will apply for my passport soon,honey. But I will have to pay before. They say it will cost one hundred dollars to make all necessary paper-work and will take about three month to get it, so if I will apply on Monday 11 March, it probably will be ready on 11 of June. I am waiting for Monday to talk to you on the telephone impatiently!!! I send you all my love, tell me one thing, I am  curious where are you when you type your letter to me?  Kiss you,honey,  Natali

Svetlana Verevka (Ukraine)

I was doing a search on Google for information on a woman I have been writing to for several months. Her name is Svetlana Verevka. I was astounded to read about her scamming on your black list page. I have sent her money. She tried to get me to send her more money to fix her dad's car. She even had photo's of the 'damage'. The photo of the damage was not believable, and did not match her discription of the circumstances. I was planning to meet her in the Ukraine, and I fear she would have sent me on a costly and dead end trip. She also wanted me to send her money for transportation. Thank you for the eye-opening information about her. Also, the photo's I have of her do not match the one you have published. You have saved me much money, heartache, and disapointment. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Jay
