All of who took money from me by way of deceit impersonation attempted blackmail and fraud.

Miss Ivananova and I had been having a relationship for about eight months and after meeting in London and Kiev decided to make an attempt at a long term relationship. Miss Ivanova vdsited me in the summer of 2004 on her
own so that we would have time together to be sure of our compatability before starting the process of a change of Country which would of course involve her four year old son.

Miss Ivanova returned to the Ukraine in August 2004 to collect he son and bring him to England for a oeriod angain to make sure that life would be acceptable to all.

She remained silent and would not answer her phone for some time but then I received an e mail ( shown below this narrative ) which is self explanitorty.

Miss Ivanova by way of an untruth told me in E Mail that her ex Husband had taken from her their Son with an order of the Court and refused to let her have the boy with whom she normally lived.

Miss Ivanova then told me that her Husband would only give back the boy to her if I was to pay him a large sum of money.

When I spoke to Mr. Ivanov on the phone he wanted 100,000 US Dollars for the return of the boy. This conversation is recorded.

I sent some of this money to Miss Ivanova for her to give to her ex Husband Mr. Aleksey Ivanov.

I spoke to Mr. Ivanov on the phone and did so may times then and over the last year.

However recently, I have received information and indeed a recorded confession from him admitting that Mr. Ivanov was in fact Mr. Konstantin Ponomarenko simply pretending to be Mr. Ivanov.

Mr. Ponomarenko states that he never received any of my money and it was the idea of Miss Ivanova and her Mother to commit this fraud and it is they who have kept all the money I sent.

Since that time last year I have sent many large amounts of money to Miss Ivanova for health care for her and her and Son, money to pay her mortgage on her apartment which she stated she needed to give the Bank, money for a hospital operation for her Mother and money to replace money she lost when she said she was robbed. There were very many more stories which were used to persuade me to send money.

By Christmas 2004/5 Mr. Ivanov had allowed Irina to visit me in England with the Son. He had attempted many times to apologize for the attempted blackmail on me in 2004 and had wished to become friends. I had always
tried to continue with good relations with him because I did not want Irina to have visa problems with the Son in the future. He had made many communications with me by e mail and phone and at this time invited me to invest 380,000 S Dollars in a business venture involving the trading of iron piping. Irina told me this would be a good idea but luckily I declined to take up this opportunity. I believe this was yet another attempt to take money from me fraudulently.

Recently I sent money directly to Mr. Ponomarenko by Western Union in that name because when pretending to be Mr. Ivanov, (who could not walk because of a serious motor accident) he told me his 'friend' Mr. Ponomarenko would collect the money for him. This again was a carefully planned deceit. This money was sent because Irina and he both said because of the fictitious accident he was left in debt to the hospital and without food and power.

For all these payments I have receipts for from Western Union.

I was having a relationship with Miss Ivanova during this time and she visited me in England four times. I believe she used this relationship simply to obtain money from me. I spent very much money on clothes presents toys for the boy and the traveling expenses for her. However this
money I do not seek to recover as although she was not genuinely interested and truthful about the relationship I was willing to spend this money on her.

The money to which I refer to earlier in this document is different and was obtained from me by willful deception by these three people using at first the child as an instrument of blackmail and then a series of lies and stories to suit their monetary requirements.

During Miss Ivanova's last visit to England in February 2005 she expressed a wish to marry and I purchased for her an engagement ring worth approximately 10,000 US Dollars. I believe she accepted this ring even though she had no intention of marrying.

To illustrate this continuing deception soon after her return to the Ukraine in February she wanted and had from me around a further 1400 US Dollars which she said the Bank needed in part repayment for her apartment. If this money was not paid she said her and the child would be without a home. This was untrue I now know that Miss Ivanova does not own an apartment nor does she have any Bank credit to buy one. This again was a further fraudulent act only weeks after expressing a desire to marry.

I was alerted to these crimes by Mr. Aleksey Ivanov Miss Ivanova's real ex Husband who asked his employer who speaks good English to telephone me. He said his good family name was being damaged by Irina's actions.
However when I spoke to Irina about these matters and she admitted the crimes she stated that it was her mother who made her do these things but her ex Husband had been involved in blackmailing her, I presume to discredit her with me.

Miss Ivanova has told me that my money is being held in a Bank account owned by her Mother.

These frauds were committed on me over a period of one and a half years with much planning and effort. I believe that they were serious and deeply criminal acts.
