I came accross her by accident or I should say she found me. I had no picture posted and I got an email with in a couple of days of signing up. I really was not looking for anybody from Russia. It was interesting. She contacted me just before New Years and like the rest she fell in love with me. I was just trying to get to know her. She would not respond to my questions and did not ask me any questions other than my full name address and money. I did not fall for it. It felt very one sided. In the story she told me her mum died and school, Her words "university of 6 years.
And now I the expert of botany."

She found me on my own website,i have never been on a men's list for anything so im unclear how she found me.
Report N3 (added on March, 26, 2005)
Person was inconsistant in responding to my attempted phone contacts and my mail did not reach them as per address.
Report N4 (added on March, 29, 2005)
Claims she is an oculist (optomitrist) searching for a male to marry. Requested me to send $300.00 via MoneyGram to process a visa.
Insisted she needed the money right away in order to do so, then claimed she needed $1535.00 for a plane ticket to visit, so that we could marry.

Hi my name is Jim.
This is her e mail. I almost went through with this till i saw your web site.
Report N6 (added on April, 2, 2005)
She initially contacted me in late December 2004, not through a 'Russian Brides Agency' but rather through an American based Singles site for evangelical Christians! Of course Olga had no interest in the Christian life and mainly for that reason failed. I was to become aware that it was pointless trying to get through to her because, as others have found she never answers any questions. Instead her 'replies' in broken English were about the progress of the relationship and other things for which she obviously uses templates. Her eventual description of falling in love with me was too pathetic to warrant description. My frustration eventually led me to strongly urge her to give me a phone number (the one I had from an earlier email didn't work). Instead this led to her plans for a visa and then the money question. Even after informing her of her deceit I still got a 'love' message the next day!
Report N7 (added on April, 2, 2005)
Same as Jerry, she found me and I was not looking for Russian women either. I wanted to find a Christian woman... I feel so dumb. I have the exact same letters as Jerry. Yet, I found this site before letter seven has come. I just email her the letters Jerry put on this site. Hopefully that will keep her away.
Report N8 (added on April, 2, 2005)
Olga contacted me one day after I signed up on Singleparentsmeet. I had not even posted a picture. Am I Black, White, Chinese, Indian, Native?
That was an unnecessary detail. She had looked at many profiles and I was the winner, the chosen one, the one with a serious attitude, the one she has been waiting for, the one to share her hitherto empty life. She did not really trust the internet, she stated as "some people in the internet get acquainted with girls only for the reception of naked photos". If I was that type I should not email her back! I thought wow, nice innocent girl. A really nice and agnostic Russian beauty ready to have a serious relationship with a black gentleman.
Each time I responded with a different email account and she responded to all in exactly the same manner. The content and sequence of the letters and photographs were all identical. She sounded so true, so innocent and looked so delicate in her photographs. Her words were so musical and are exactly what I wanted to hear from a woman at that time as I was going through a lot of stress and was very lonely. It sounded too good to be true and yet I believed in it. I wanted it to be true. I wanted to be loved. To my mind the letters sounded so generic even before knowing about Stop-Scammers, but my heart would have none of that mindly doubt even though her emails to my three accounts were identical, and my soul yearned for comfort and soothing. So I continued my tripple email communication with this delicate almost innocent beauty. Look at her sitting near that pond, dress matching the lilliesflowers in the water. Dashing, all dashing, man! I happened to have neglected to reply her third email letter. Man, she responded like a smitten lover. Am I now too busy to bother writing her, she snapped. Why, am I hurting her. She loves me too much and can not do without me. Letters 4, 5 and 6 were carefully crafted to appeal to my inner soul so that letter number 7 and 8 would be the climax of her expression of her love for me. 7 and 8 arrived, and I think in hindsight intended to arrive on Valentine's day! I received letter 9 after Valentines day, still dizzy from an avalanche of romantic affection delivered in the previous days emails. I was expected to be romantically dizzy and vulnerable on this day. Lest I alert up, the standard now familiar request was made. US$300 please, by Western Union, for a Visa to visit me in my Country. Let the letters speak for themselves. Marvelous Olga, so I replied. But, I was disappointed I pointed to her. I was a man and could take care of my woman better. US$1000 was more like it. And, also I had to buy presents for her mother too. She was being a bad girl to ask me only $300 so I lovingly admonished her. More importantly she need not bother about the Visa. I will take matters in my own hands as I am flying next week to St. Petersburg for a conference. I will bring the $1000.00 with me and hand it to her directly and her mothers presents too. Does she want to fly from Sayanogorsk or Saratov to St. Peters..g or would she prefer me to get to Sayanogorsk or nearby Abakan or the nearby big city of Novosibirsk. At this point my mind had taken over I was full throtle into some detective game of my own. She disappeared. Never heard from her again even though I send her three more emails. The point is who ever was trying to rip me of $300.00 realized he or she was outmanovred,infact stop-scammed. I doubt if Olga exists, but I do believe the innocent looking girl whose photos appear is perharps innocent, but is being used by some scam agency. How else can you explain her also communicating with Jerry(USA), from Saratov in Sarotvskaya oblast at the same time that she was communicating with me, from Sayanogorsk in the Republic of Khakasia thousands of miles apart. Also the letters reported on this and written by Maria Zolotova who resides in Ekaterinburg and Olga Zhelonkina who is eported to reside in Irkutsk - four Russian cities hundreds even thousand miles apart, are identical to the letters I received from Olga Mikisheva. Further, on closere scrutiny the photographs of the three women may be of one woman with minor disguses.

This lady contacted me finding my name on an associated site to filipinofriendfinder.
She has been working up to the scam by the feel of the letters she never answers anything in yourmail but continues to send attribs of admiration and photos.

Sent me a series of love letters. asked me for 300 dollars for her visa so she could come to the USA and see me. I stop the payment before she could get it it. She almost got me until I vame to this web site.
Report N11 (added on April, 6, 2005)
Olga wrote to me and told me that looks don't matter. That she liked my profile of all the profiles that she had read, and only wrote to me. I fell for it hook, line and sinker! If it seems to true to be true, then it probably is. I e-mailed Olga from the e-mail address that she gave to Jerry Hernandez, not beleiving that Olga was this way, based upon her sincereity, from her letters and pictures. The very next day, as I was e-mailing her to ask her about what I found out was true about her, I got an e-mail from her, she didn't even know that she was sending it to me.....hahaha! We had been writing for 19 days. The e-mail that she sent to me was the same one that she had sent to Jerry. Wow.....was I ever blown away. I guess you live and learn. As Jerry said, she would answer what she wanted to and the rest she put away for her bad understanding of English. So I have wrote this to you Men out there, for the warning and to wish you all the best of luck. I have posted all the pictures that she sent to me. This will not detour me in finding my future Russian wife. I had everything to offer Olga and the world was hers, and she was to..........to realise it!!!
Now I know I will find my true Lady, and many thanks to this forum. With an I.Q. of 139, at genius level, we can all be scammed guys. Thank God I tried to send flowers and they weren't deliverable. I lost 20% of my money but this was the final happening. I could have lost a lot more. Ok, enough for now guys and I hope you read and learn by all this. We are all vulnerable I guess, no matter how sincere we are in our hearts. Best of luck.....Larry

Olga first contacted my late Jan. 2005. Same line; many men want naked photos, and if I wanted naked fotos, do not write. She sent me 11 photos and 23 letters by mid April 2005. Her first foto has the same flower dress. She said she is childrens oclulist at the city hospital. Her dad has died and she lives with her mum. She expressed her love for me and wanted meney for visa. I told her I have already researched the laws for US visas, and a tourist visa will not work. I expressed my desire to visit her so I could comply with immigration laws. Many questions went unanswered. I really wish she was the real thing. Iam heartbroken to find her here. I search the world for my one true love and find deceit in her.

This person tried to scam me using the name Anastasia a few months ago. She wanted me to visit her then when I said I would she said the local travel agents and the Russian mob worked together and would harm me so it was better for her to come here with my financial assistance of course. I said "No WAY"! Then a few months later I received an email from a different address and different name and different pics but I noticed it was her and then observed all of her pics on your site.

She found me on cupidbay, I never had a chat with her but I recived a dozen emails from her, although I knew she was a scammer because I read about scammer I decide to bait her with emails as well, acting stupid she took the bait, I just wanted to she how far she would go, right now she decide that she loved me and needs 1300 dollars to come to me in the USA lolololol
Report N28 (added on April, 27, 2007)
She is a scammer asking for money for visa and passport. Writes in French, Germann and English.
Her letters contain errors and it seems she does not really understand what she writes because sometimes her senteces do not make any sense and are not understandable. It is possible she uses translators that are available on the net.
She tries to make you believe she loves you deeply, that you are the man of your dreams, but if you look carrefully what she writes you can easily see that she almost never answers your questions. It is a curious attitude for a person who pretends to love you.
And finally she asks you for money to be able to visit you.
I received exactly the same letter as Stephane from France.
Also I received the same letters as hers but from another girl. I do not believe this young lady whom we see on the photograph writes the letters. I think someone uses her photographs. In fact you are probably not contacted by the young lady you see on the photograph but by someone else. And the innocent woman on the ohotograph might really be innocent.
