Okay, so I'm not dumb enough to wire money to someone I've never seen or met. About a week ago I  received an e-mail from Natasha in response to an online service that I used about three years ago. In  fact I  didn't even remember that I had an ad posted on this  site. I can tell you that the picture Natasha sent is  nothing like the Natasha that is posted on the web site.  Given this and the fact that I am involved with  someone sparked my interest so I thought I'd do some  "fly fishing" In the third e-mail I got interested in  knowing where Yoshkar-Ola or whatever it is is located  and came across a site that talked of these scams.  After Natasha's fourth e-mail which was almost a  duplicate of what I read on the web I sent her instead  of money, the URL. I haven't heard from her since but I  did use it as an opportunity to express my opinion and  thoughts about how people should respect one another and  strive to instill honesty. And is this the way the  world should think of people in Russia? I don't think  so. Use these opportunities to be direct and  espouse honest. I really can't believe that some people  actually sent money to these scammers. What head is our blood flowing to?

Andreya (Angel Agency Kyrgyzstan )

Hi I was just looking up "Angel" and "Kyrgistan" on the net search. You see I am a 42 y.o. single man writing to ladies from international dating agency and came across a lady in Kyrgistan. I found the information from Steve on Blacklist page 82 and discovered that I have gotten the same #1 and #2 return letters he had, but from a different lady "Andreya"!! Well thanks I won't waste anymore time with this person or "Angel" agency and definitly not send any money. Here is her photo for your information. I consider this lady may have nothing to do with this scam, it may be another woman, man, couple, or the "agency" "Best in Kyrgistan" [laugh] just using a picture - who knows?  Ernie

Hello Dear Ernie!!! Thank you very much for your letter, you are first man who seriously enterested with me. I was very glad to get your letter in our marriage agency. I am admired with you !!! Where are you from and what is your  real name ? Let me write you my biography.I was born in country Kyrgyzstan.  I was born in 1979 of January 14. I have finished school 11 classes, then has arrived in university, I have got the diploma. But my trade became unnecessary, I could not find long time work. I did not require money,  but it was interesting to me to work, to communicate with the people and to  be typed of vital experience. I have found work in one half-year, I worked  the barman in the Korean restaurant, it was interesting, but heavy work...  I received good money in comparison with general earnings in our country  in that time. But I have understood, that when will pass youth, I can not  work in such place and I have decided(solved) to continue my education. As  in that time the training in our country became paid, it was difficult.  But I do not see my life here, as I search for the husband, I shall follow him, where he will wish. Dear Ernie, i intend to meet serious man for  relation. It don't mean for me nation or age. Just a little love, and happy  future of my children. I intend that you has serious intentions... Send the photo. Than you like to be engaged? How spend free time? Where do you live? Sorry for my bad english. Take my pic.  Waiting your answer, Andreya

Elmira Shukurova (Chboksari, Russia)

Here is a new face for your scammer list, I noticed a lot of ladies repeated on your pages they must be really desperate, or it is easy for them to get money so it continues...after 3 or 4 emails I got this one requesting almost $2,000. I wrote her back that there are just to many women looking for money from men from US...that good things take time. Thanks for your informative pages.

Galina Navalihina, Saratov Russia

I am a 38 yr old single no kids, I used a matchmaking service and out of the blue this russian bombshell dropped the bomb on me! I exchanged letters for 1 week and a half and knew something was wrong when her letters were not answering mine specifically. I found her on this blacklist and
she wrote the identically letter to me as well!
(needless to say no money from me!)

Kata (Yoshka-Ola, Russia)

I am a divorced 45 year old father of 2. My children are grown and looking for a Russian wife became very appealing. I never new that this site existed  until I was looking up Yoshkar-Ola Russia and I couldn't believe what I read.  I can't believe that I let this happen, but it did. I was contacted by Katya  on Apr 20,2002 thru Frind She was using the name Katya Sergeeva  and works with children at a hospital, like you can believe that. The  pictures I have do not look like those that other men have of her but I will  post them so that should she try to contact you, you'll have some idea. We  conversed thru e-mail night after night. She sent pictures and so did I. She  has a very convencing story and I was gulable enough to send her $1600.00 for  her to come here to visit and possibly marry. She was to arrive on May  27,2002 (Mamorial Day) . That never happen and all contact with her has now  ceased.So gentleman watch for this preditor of men. After arriving at this site and seeing other letters that she has sent to  other men the simularity was unbeliveable. I was shocked to read what she had  written with only minor changes. I will enclose her first letter of greeting  and those where she has asked for money. You will be able to judge for your  self and hopefully not be caught in her innocent web. At the moment I have  HEAL and STUPID both stamped on my forehead. I have started filing charges  against this person in order to stop this type of scam and prevent it from  happining to someone else. Hopefully she will be caught and prosecuted. But  then she may not. She does leave a trail though and one she can errase. So  beware of Katya of Yoshkar -Ola she is smart and knows what to say and what  pictures to send, but she is still a preditor. 

Marina (Vladivostok, Russia)

My name is Ron, 37 year old , Divorce male no children. The total time of corresponding was 2 months then I ended it. I first received a email from Marina ( at web site where I had a personal a  posted. She started out friendly so I responded to her email just to see how far things will go. She didn't get any money but she did ask. I was surprised when I saw her photo on your website and my last letter to her was a scorcher so I'll include it here!!!! (You can use it if you want to.) From Ron Meyers: 

Letter 1

It is very far from Moscow but I think that I live in not bad place.I will not write a big letter - I'll simply send you my photo and you'll decide if youwant to continue to conversate more with me.

I want to know what do you think about my photo!... 

Letter 6

Hi my close friend Ron! I loved your pics very much!!!! I'm so glad to write an answer to you again. It takes to me a great pleasure to read your letters and to know that someone far away waits for mine too. I feel happy to find news from you my dear friend! As you understand it has come warm here. The weather is very fine and clear air gives fresh feeling of freedom when going through the street. That kind of the weather is my best in the spring - it is sunny but very-very clear and very specific - even I can't describe by words. With each letter between us I feel that firstly called feeling between us is growing and becoming stronger. It is very strange to understand the fact that two people can feel closer without even ever meeting but it is really so!!! My girlfriend at work began to mark that I'm a little differ from mine else several weeks ago. She said that I became more looking happier and having fun in every moment of life. And I fell that I changed my mind too after acquaintance with you. It is really great that I feel so!!! And you know... I feel that I have a great desire to come to USA to see you in reality. It may sound a little crazy but I really would love to meet you some day, to say you "Hallo" in person, to shake your hand. It should be so romantic meeting!!! But from another side it seems to be crazy dream only - you see - we live so far apart that it makes me unhappy that such a usual girl as me have no chance to move there where she want as easy as it is possible in fantasies... But from dreams to reality... I finally forgot to give you my address you can write me a letter through usual mail. It is following: Marina Lipova Russia Vladivostok Pushkin street, 27-11 In turn I'd love to know yours. I'll be really glad to send you the letter by  mail. So if you don't against I want you to send me your mail address. OK? I'd love to tell you else about my first love. He was a boy of my age. His name is Andrey. I loved him so... so... But our love story finished very sad. He exchanged me for the career. He is gone to Africa to the city of Cairo and live there now. I suffered so much. I loved him. We were meeting for almost two years but he drop as... I can't recall this without tears. I almost forgot it. t happened a year before now I found you in so far!!! I hope that you are not bored with my stories? It seemed to me that I feel for you growing feelings. What is it - I don't know. I think that the time will  show!!! But you can't deny the fact that our hearts becoming closer. I hope that I don't make a mistake thinking this. I really feel something new in my soul!..... 

Letter 7

Hi my love Ron! Or what is it - I'm in total confusion - what's happening to my poor mind. It may sound so crazy but I feel something for you! It is a very great feeling love! I can't describe that great mood that I got up today in the early mourning thinking of you huging me in the field of flowers! It was a great dream!!! I didn't see such kind of dreams from time of my firstly falling in love!!! It was so wonderful as in reality!!! I feel love and this fact heat my soul when the spring has taken it's rules in it's hands and already warm in the street. I feel that I'm enough powerfull to make my dream come true and come to you to USA and to see you in reality and to shake your hand and to look into your eyes and to say you in person what I really wanted to say but can't get it in words on paper...  .....But I have known a little about how can I come to you. The most important is to get the foreign passport and visa to visit. It is not easy as have heard and but I think that there's no impossible things in the world. The most important is great wish and will to do what you want. I will speak with mother about this but firstly I need to know what do you think about this. I have learned that the cost of making all papers for me will totally cost about 200 US dollars but I'll learn it more better if you want.   

Letter 8

Hi my best Ron! I'm so glad again writing a letter to you from Russia. I know it sounds a little official but I feel that today is very important day. I finally found the information about what do I need to get the visa and to make my dream come true and to come to you my love! I think that the best way for me is to get Tourist visitors visa. It is the easiest way to come to you. Sure it will be very hard to get it nevertheless but I hope that I can do it with your help! It has one weakness - it allow to stay in your country for only three months but I hope that after coming that time I will have a chance to prolong it. I was said that it is possible. I heard there are many events when girls from Russia got Tourists visas and after that got married and stayed abroad. So I think that we can be together too! How do you think? Am I right? I have known about total cost of preparing of all papers I need to come to USA. It has appeared more than 200 USD as I said before. It is needed 240 USD to make everything: visa, applications and passport. It is b g sum of money that I can't get in even several months. I hope that you can help me to find that kind of money to make our dream come true. My the way I can get my visa in already two weeks! I was so pleased to hear this! It means that we can meet so soon as I didn't ever dreamed! I'm really happy to know that! So I need 240 dollars as soon as it will be possible for you to send. I hope that I don't ask too much from you! You can send them through the system Western Union. When you will send the money they will give you Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN). This is ten digits. If you send me that MTCN by e-mail I can get your money at the bank here in Russia. I'll give you the adress of Western Union here in Vladivostok that best ofall to get for me: ALFA BANK  SEMENOVSKAYA, 26  VLADIVOSTOK , 690000 The money are to send for my name - Marina Lipova. Another important information is that I need information about the closest airport to you. This information will help to get the ticket with big discount! This was asked by my aunt Irina. She promised for me to make this good deal and can't express thanks to her for this! As you see I speak too much about money. I hate this world for it is controlled  by the money! But without your help I will never see you! Unfortunately we are to pay to be together! It's so pity! I'd love to fly to you simply with help  of my love-wings that carry me in my dreams about I will meet you and we will live together forever until death!!! I love you so much! My parents were not very good with that idea for us to be together firstly. They thought it is so far and dangerous! But I convinced  them to let me be with my beloved and they agree with me at the end. All my friends wish for me to be the happiest girl in the world to be together!!!  Sorry if I may be offend you asking the money. But I hope that in your next letter I'll read very good news for us my love! I need you. I dream of you! I love to think about you. I'm so crazy.... Marina. p.s. Here's my photo I made not much time before but you may be sure the weather here is more warm now. And sure no snow at all! 

My final letter to her and it's a SCORCHER!!!

Dear Marina, It's good to hear from you again but I'm going to have to end this game we are playing. I'm bored with it and just wanted to see how far it would go. I knew it would be a matter of time before you asked for money. Not every one in america is lonely or dumb and can be taken advantage of. I must say about the time I received your first letter I had just seen a movie called "The Birthday Girl" starring Nichoel Kidman as a Russian mail order bride. Needless to say her character wasn't a honest person. Basically she and her partners ran a scam where she would meet rich men and rob them of their money then flee. Then I found a website called "The Russian Blacklist" which tells actual stories of russian women who contacted men from other countries and try to get them to send money for Tourist visas and plane tickets!!! Needless to say the timing of my being exposed to this information was odd but necessary for what was to come. I searched the Russian Blacklist for your name but I didn't see it but your motives are the same as the women listed on the site. It's really sad that you have to LIE to make a living. When I look at your pictures I see someone who has the potential to be whatever she wants to be but settled on a life of cheating people. I truly believe not all Russian women are like you. I'm sure their are some really nice and honest girls who want to meet someone and fall in love and have a good life regardless of where they live. I briefly looked into the city you live in  VLADIVOSTOK and it's history. I know during the time of Soviet rule it was a major port city and station area for the Russian Pacfic fleet. Unfortunately, after the collapse of the soviet government everything fell into decline. Now that city has high unemployment and crime. In fact many areas are under Russian mob influence. With this in mind I knew I had to be careful with any information I told you about myself. I studied the photos you sent me and you look like any other young woman who likes pretty things. Unfortunately, I doubt if you earn enough to purchase the things you want. Life is rough every where and we all have to struggle to survive. It's a shame you have to resort to lying to survive. How can you live with yourself? How do you know what the truth is? Do you fear God or just don't care?  I did not start this game but I will finish it!!! You contacted me out of the blue about 2 months ago from a dating website and just assumed that I was a lonely American looking for a woman at any cost. Yes, I'm alone but not lonely and surely not stupid!!! How long have you been playing this scam? You don't love me because you don't even know me. In fact, I bet you have at least 10-20 other guys on your so called hook trying to get money from them with your lies. You have the tongue of a whore and just pray on the weak! GET A LIFE!!!! Try to make something of yourself and stop trying to steal money with your lies! Your hurting innocent men who may want to care about you and probably start a real relationship but your wicked and have an evil heart! I knew something was up because your letters were too forward and aggressive. In addition, I never brought up the subject of us meeting- you did. In fact, we never even discussed the when or were we would meet you just assumed we would meet. The thing about telling lies is you have to remember what you said because it's not true. Then after only six brief letters I'm the love of your life and asked for money! So, let me get this straight. In order for you to come and see me you need to get a Tourist Visa which cost $240? Since you don't have the funds and can't pay even part of it you want me to pay the full $240? Yeah, right!! I don't think so. I'm not sending you a DAMN thing!!!!! Don't write me again! Remove my name from your mailing list or else you will be sorry!!!! How will you be sorry you wonder????? First, I am reporting your name to the Russian Blacklist website with your letters and photos so others will be aware of you. Second, unfortunately you tried to scam the wrong person this time. I work on computers for a living and I'm a computer graphic artist. Attached to this email are a few of the nude and pornographic images that I applied your head and face to!!!! If you contact me again I will up load these images to several hundred pornographic sites throughout the world and you will seen for the person that you really are!!!! Don't contact me again!!! GOOD-BYE!! Ron 

Marina Varaksina (Perm, Russia)

Hello, My name is Ron, 41 in USA. I have been this route before, This one seemed a little bit more clever, but generic. This is strike 2 for me. I initiated the first contact, after several letters, she made reference to visa and a 300.00 value for visa. At first she seems sincere, but will avoid specific questions, Attached you will find letters and photos. Her last letter was asking for money, when I explained in detail the truth of why I could not send money, she just stopped writing. You can see that she might be new to this, there are several redundancies in the letters. Even though she says she has no computer and she uses different locations, school and girlfriends  computers. All come from the same IP.

Letter #4
Hello , Hi, my friend name !!! I to be very happy to receive your letter. To me to seem, that each letter to do(make) our hearts closly and  closly. We to learn(find out) about each other it is more and more and more and it to pull together us.  You do not think that I to speak it simply so. I to suspect this theme much. I to not want that you to think of me poorly. I to want to find good person, which may support me a difficult minute. I to meet  one man earlier. I to think what to love it(him). But as soon as I to learn(find out) it(him) is better my love to it(him) to pass. It(he) to appear very bad person. It(he) to begin to come home drunk and malicious. To appear that at him(it) not all it is good to turn out at work and it(he)to break the failure on me. It not so to like me. If at someone something to fail what for someone to offend because of it? You with me to agree in it? And therefore I to leave from him(it). I long to suffer(bear), but then I to understand what to not love it(him). Many women at us in Russia to live with alcoholics. I to not want such torture. I to want to find in the life of the kind, lovely, gentle, tender friend. I to be disappointed in our men, I to not want to search here for the partner in life more. May be in Russia still remain the present men, but I to not meet some more such. I to want to create normal, high-grade family that my children it is good to finish school and to act(arrive) in university, instead of to begin the addict. Many children at us in Russia to become addicts because to receive education in the street. They are children of families in which mother or father to drink. We have such families where to drink both mother and father. They to not watch(keep up) at all for the child. At me in a class children of such parents study. They to not be on employment(occupations) to not learn(teach) the domestic task, they to put on in dirty clothes. I to be at them at home as the teacher of their children. Their parents to be drunk and it is bad to talk to me. They to live very bad. I to not want such life for my children. I to lose hope to find the present the man at us in Russia and consequently I begin to get acquainted through service of acquaintances. And consequently I to begin to write to you. I to want to know that you to think that I to write in this letter. I to want to learn(find out) your address (staff(state), city, street and so on). There may be I write to you the letter. Though I to doubt that the letter to reach you. It is very bad to work for us mail. I to think, that it is better to write letters on a E- Mail. So there is very much an every prospect of that the letter to reach you. On it I to finish my letter to you. It is possible to set to you one question: when your Birthday? Yours Marina. Best regards, Marina
