Report N3 (added on March, 23, 2005)

Another typical scam. within 2 weeks of writing, ready to come visit me but needs help to do it.
Very informative with the costs to make the visit. She forgets she had written to me several months earlier and even dares to speak that I should not deceive her and I should completely put trust in her.
In my introduction letter I clearly stae I report any known deceit and through out my letters I always make reference to the fact how I have reported other women for their scams and that I hate lies. She continues totally oblivious to that.
I have made many enemies among women scammers and yet the persist.
She answers very few of my questions yet proclaims such love for me to chance a visit in very short period. I give her every opportunity to bow out of correspondence before I lay the trap of saying "OK you can come and I will help". I do this to get additional information that can be posted that otherwise I may not get. and I am always getting photos. Read the letters yourself and judge.

Report N5 (added on March, 26, 2005)

I am an American, mid 50's. divorced. I work in the communications industry.

This woman approached me in mid December, under the name Marina (A/K/A Marinka, Marinaksa) Krestyaninova. She found me on Sladurana.com. The first few emails were very basic and benign. But quickly came to a head within one week professing much love. Many of the letters she sent were very similiar to those, with different names and occupations, as I have seen posted previously. She has also used the name Elena Volkova which I have seen in several of you communications. She also uses the email address marinaksa@mail.ru with an address in Irkursk. (Karla Marksa, 34, Irkutsk).

I will send you the other photos I have have plus copies of some of the letters. These are the ones she sent me.

This woman is all over the internet, on many, many websites. I will tell you that I have been successful in having her profile delted on many of them, where the webmasters were actually interested in trying to keep thier sites clesn. But it is impossible as she crops up all over the place. She is one of the major players.

Report N11 (added on April, 14, 2005)

Elena originally had contacted me through Yahoo Personals by leaving a message in my inbox in my Yahoo Personal's mailbox. Elena had written to me that she was looking for a serious relationship for marriage. Will, I begin to think here we go again, but I remeber in what your stop-scammer website had explain that not all Russian women were not all scam artists. So, I begin to correspond with Elena by e-mail, chatting with her in yahoo messenger with a web cam. Eventually, Elena wanted the relationship to develope more quickily. I said to myself, Here I go again, and I better watch out for a scammer. Elena and I corresponded reguarly as usual. Then Elena had an Uncle who worked at Alina that could handle her visa and air travel to travel to me in the U.S.A. I had contacted Alina, and they had told me that they never heard of Elena or her Uncle. Because her Uncle never had worked for Alina. Elena had also told me that she did not correspond with other men, but she uses three e-mail addresses that I am aware of in writting to me. So, I started an alter-ego to see if she would respond to another e-mail address to another man. Of course, Elena had started to send e-mails to that alter-ego address in looking for a serious relationship as well. Even when she is still waiting for me to be with her. Boy, I thank your website in giving these idea in catching a scammer, but Elena's nothing but a scammer. Elena even had send me her video of herself, and did a strip tease show over the internet to catch my attention for her. It takes more then a sexy body to hand my money to a scammer for nothing. Thank you for everything, and I am in still contact with Elena. To see what else she is going to do next. I am still looking for the right lady, but I keep getting the wrong ladies so far. I'll just keep looking.

It started as friendly chat, developed and later wanted to come live with me. I said that I would visit her, but she said it would cost too much if she returned with me and that she ould fly to SA. Then it was money that had to be sent to her for visa, interview and medical.Total required was $600 included travel to Moscow. I contacted Russian Consulate in South Africa and queried this. What was required was $100 for visa only. Next she insisted that she had checked locally and had to go to Moscow.She sent bank details ,but not in her name as she only needed my details and deposit reference and could collect by producing her passport.
Extract follows:
"I had today long talking in agency of travels. I should reserve my visa in Moscow. To me also are necessary will to pass medical inspection and to give interview in embassy. I should go in Moscow. I will need to pay $ 150 for the visa. To me are necessary will to pay money for a road to Moscow and for medical inspection. I need $ 450 for this purpose.

Has been emailing me for the past week, although not asked for any money yet but I started to wonder if it was real after the photos looked too good. And all seemed a bit far fetched.
Then today got another email in my yahoo in box saying exactly the same wording but for a different email address, it was then when I typed her name in that I found this web site, and found a letter that was sent to someone else that eas worded the same as mine.

Report N28 (added on August, 16, 2005)

Got a letter from Irina on DatingDirect, and she requested to write with me by e-mail instead. After a few letters she told me that she loves me, and wants to marry me. She also began to send me more and more sexy pictures. I got a bit hesitated by her "love stories", since it sounded a bit too untrustworthy. I also started to get suspicious about her, since she hardly answered any of my questions or commented on my letters.

Because of my suspicion, I started searching for her on the internet and found her at http://www.stop-scammers.com/ as Elena Volkova. The 3 reported letters from Irina Russkih to Gary Dillon (UK) are almost 100% entical to the first 3 letters I got from her.

Even though she has written about 10 letters to me, she has then (not yet) asked for any money. Maybe because I have been a bit cautious about her and not responding her letters with too much romantic enthusiasm. But I guess that it would just be a matter of time. I might continue writing with her a bit to see who she will carry out her scam. I will of cause not send her any money though!

So, I waited. I knew plane fare was going to be the issue. I suspect all along that she really lives in Moscow.
I knew what she was... so I play the game with her for awhile.

She is a serious scammer trying to get access to your bank account, pretending to want to pay money into it through her 'uncle' who lives in 'your' country. This money is supposed to pay for a ticket to 'your' country from St Petersburg.

I am on a holiday for a few days here in Malaysia when my friends introduced me to this site and what a surpise I got??? I have documents and pictures of her and over 35 letters. Started off innocent by saying that she wanted to improve her english language. A heartless, sly and cunning scammer. Just recently she started writing to me in a new email address at ilovemyayoob@gmail.com

The IP addresses this person is sending from all seem to start from a private IP: 172.20.29.144, 172.19.130.79, 172.30.83.115, 172.19.129.76, 172.20.83.112.
She claims to be writng from an internet cafe in her town, which she claims to be Ershov, Russia. These numbers could all be linked to a network that could be an internet cafe.
One IP that comes up consistently is in Sunnyvale, California, 76.13.13.45.
There is anumber of different IP's after this that seem to come from a variety of places: 213.163.91.89 from Rotterdam, Netherlands, 89.239.76.43 from Warsaw, Poland, 209.191.93.53 which lists Van Nuys, California and Sunnyvale, Ca, 67.195.15.94 also from Sunnyvale, Ca.

Report N110 (added on September, 30, 2011)

She contacted me out of the blue. I recognized her picture from your website and continued correspondence for several weeks. Her emails followed the same script and she never answered any questions. Some of the emails are pretty pornographic, the photos are a bit risque but nothing too outrageous. In recent emails she made the money pitch: She needs funds to pay her utility bills so she can leave Russia. Apparently I'm to send her 170 Euro to pay off her bill. She said in an earlier email she had arrived in Moscow but I'm to send the money to Saratov. Perhaps she jumped on a plane and flew back to Saratov? Not likely. At any rate, I know she's a scammer and she's not getting any of my money.
