Report N1 (added on January, 30, 2006)

Claims to be a childrens psychologist. I must be young and niave. No I really couldn't believe she was real to begin with, but I was interested to see where it went and if I could identify her. Name found on your site. Picture on another. She approached me 12 months ago too at Yahoo Personals. I lost interest. This time I wrote to her several times.

Report N2 (added on April, 7, 2006)

Her name on your site is; Anna Kurshakova from Zelenodolsk, Russia. She has an E-mail address of; She has been found on wedsites; cupidbay, Yahoopersonals and RussianAmericanLove.

She is Maria too me and her E-mail is; Her name Maria.

I am thrilled that I got her to send me a copy of her passport. She has asked me for money on three occassions, but I insisted on seeing a copy of her passport so she could travel. I truly wish that this information of the passport is true so that you may proceed to arrest her. This was 6 weeks of E-mailing and obviously a total waist of time and energy!!

She had told me her parents passed away and that as she grew up she was in a boarding school, where she was raped, and that her Grandmother had an Aunt at a government location in Moscow which would allow for her visa to be expedited. I had even told her about my knowledge of scammers from Russia and this did NOT deter her in anyway whatsoever!!

This person is a chronic scammer with absolutely no morals or understanding of warning signals.............what we consider in America as a crimminal with the ultimate desire for complete fraud and personal theft of money!! I hope you may arrest this person.

Pretty enthusiastic girl until she started talking about her dad being a man with connections and could get the necessary paperwork to get her over here(warning). Then came the final letter with all kinds of convoluted financial dealings with final request for money.

Report N4 (added on June, 15, 2007)

I received an email that simply said "Hi" that contained an email address. I sent the same single "Hi" email in response and that is when I started receiving the letters. After about the 3rd letter I started doing some text searches and came across your web-site and found almost the exact same letters posted here from Anna Timoschenko, aka Ekaterina. As I received and read each one of the letters from Alla Llina I felt a sense that I had seen it before. So after each letter I got I double checked the text against what was posted here. Also, I had asked her specific questions relating to her letters and didn't get any answers. Additionally, I told her things that should have sparked questions from her, but got none.

Met this girl on truebeginnings she wrote to me and i had responded. did not know she was russia until second letter. language seemed off so i asked her where she was from and why she was on american site. she said she was looking for maerican man for love and family. we wrote back and forth for 5 weeks. then she asks to come to usa to visit me to find if we are good match for each other. my first time internet dating. very naive. she says she can get all papers and visas to come to me. this girl is good at what she does does not ask for money for a while makes you feel safe. offers to pay for things herself at first. then starts to ask for money. well this little vixen got me for $800 for airline tickets. this is her scam. she is on many other websites for being a scammer and has been doing this for at least 2 years from other complaints. with my help i hope to slow her down a little more. have already put her pictures and reported here to 5 websites my self. i know it is too late for me but i hope to save some other guy the heart ache this girl has ice in her veins. by the way she is still trying to get more money out of me right now. i think i will play with her for a while get my $800 worth.

The usual story, falls in love after a few letters & then comes the sting to come & visit me here in Australia.

Report N16 (added on August, 28, 2008)

Here is an old favorite under a new disguise !!! She does not use a photo for her profile and sends all letters in numerical order with the photos numbered as well. When she first wrote I waited then said I knew who she was. Letters stop. Few weeks later she wrote asking why I do not answer her !! I played along up to the point she was going to a travel agent. I even sent her a letter I sent to another girl, incorrect name the lot and still got the next letter without any mention of this !!!!

Thanks for getting back to me. I've copied all of the emails I've received from this woman into one TXT file and I've also added every JPG photo she's sent me, including the passport one from this morning. I really hope this helps your great website, so apologies for such a large email because she's been very prolific.

I'm expecting her to reply to me this afternoon to see if I went to the local Western Union office this morning for her. Obviously, I haven't. So I'll send that email too once it arrives if that's OK?

Best regards and many thanks,
