Report N1

I saw her add on "Dating list" - RUSSIAN FREE PERSONALS. She didn't get any money from me but if it wasn't your site, who knows very good job. Scammers like this are ruinning Russian women chances for better life, because of those scammers.

I'm one of the many people who was scammed by this sick persons. Her name I see all over and I'm shocked that this is allowed. Same thing; 27 years old, lives with mother falls in love after only 4 emails, no phone, never answers questions ect. 350 US for visa.

Looks like a new address guys, so be careful! This one is all over. Sends photos which look like each one from different person, uses friends computer, talks about trust, love and religion, left by Russian man just before wedding, looks like they changed the story...

Report N2

Hi, My name is Dan, 50 yr. I received an e-mail from stating she liked what she saw on a personals profile that I had listed through Yahoo. I began coresponding but gathered some information from sources, which assisted greatly in "taking things slow". She has sent nearly17 letters, each with a high quality photo. It was always a back & forth deal, meaning I never got 2 in a row before I replied. It didn't take long before I found younger pictures of her, along with numerous aliases, cities of residence, & stories. She soon volunteered an address as: Lenin St. 24-5/ Irkutsk/ 56-4900 Russia. It became clear early on that things didn't come together. Generic statements that on the surface would appear as coorespondence, never really responded to me personally, with what I offered her. I would clearly & tactfully repeat questions which never were responded to. The letter writing on my part became an exercise in talking to my dream girl who existed in my mind, as opposed to her. I was curious as to how she operated. She claims that she lives w/ her mother & a brother, and that her father was killed in a recent war conflict. This in itself took up an entire letter. I received numerous examples of cut & paste statements & paragraphs. I wasn't too surprised when I found exact wording to another man earlier this year, talking about a sister (who wasn't in the family to begin with) taking a visit to a university in the USA. Her letters are chock full of contradictions, if one is careful to study! I believe she, or someone else, simply scans the reply for key words that would indicate what formula response should be given. When after asking her for a passport copy, she did say she could send it, yet seemed to stress the immediacy of getting together, which required my assistance, of course. I did address the 350 US but it was not even replied to. I sent a final letter which spoke of my reactions to all of this. I was tactful & clear at times, and also a bit verbose. To my surprise, I got a reply the next morning telling of the lovely letter, her passion for our union, and another mention of me needing to send $!! ( I even attached a photo of "E.T."! prior to this..No reaction! ) Even previous Greetings from Yahoo went unopened.

Thank you for the web page!!

She is still on Absolute Agency under the name Maria Burenkova. She started communicating with me April and told me she was an assistant manager of agrocery store. She waited about3 weeks to tell me that she lovedme and then wanted to be with me. first her mother had a medical condition and needed money I said no Then she lost her job and was going to move to her mother's Again I said I couldn'thelp I went to Moscow in August and she was going to join me but needed money for a visa and airline ticket I said I would reimburse her when we met in Moscow but she couldn't afford it. Then she wanted money to come to America When I said no to that she told me that she had to go away and hoped I would understand. It is worth noting that whoever I was communicating with has a much better grasp of English than in the letters I read on your site and we even communicated online to each other as many as 20 times a day and I spoke to her at 380 679 396 211 She said it was a friends cell phone. I got a brief note from her in January. She is very smooth and persistant and will continue to communicate even after her requests are rejected if she thinks she might catch you with another strategy.

This scammer is very intelligent but uses the same stories like other do just to get some money from you. She is telling you that she is in love with you and she is ready to fly to you at once, but of course, she has no money and you should help her.
She is still active at other sites. Be careful guys.

I am an American Citizen who is honestly looking for a foreign woman to marry. Saddly I have met too many females who practice international mail fraud in thier efforts to scam us innocent men for our money. Because I have been scammed at least twice before, I now take personal pride in fighting back. As a computer network engineer, I believe it is important to attempt to shut down these scammers at thier source by contacting thier ISP's who use thier networks for international mail fraud scams. Here is some letters from Ekaterina.
