One of our customers has been scammed by Diana Drozdova (Moscow, Russia). Her real name is Diana Pirojnikova which she used to pick up Western Union transfer.

I have had a contact with Diana Drozdova (fairy-tale@ipex.ru) for about 2 month. The contact was very good and very promising until she asked if I could help her with 280 dollars. She wanted to by a computer. This amount of money was missing. I sent it 30 december 2003 by the "Western Union" - system.

After that the contact has been broken. She has stopped writing.

1. Sergejevna Chirukhina is a scammer.

Over the last  year she took a trip to the United States, enough money to live well on, a diamond ring, and a fur coat from me under the pretense of being engaged, planning to come here to marry, while she was seeing several other men, taking money and jewelry, and proposing marriage to them.

When I found her listed on 5 dating sites in November, she denied any knowledge and said a friend who had her email password must have been involved. Her email and phone number were there for a year, so of course she was guilty. After I confronted her she took her bio off the sites.

When I started getting too close to the truth she broke off with me last week.

She is very skilful at this. She will never admit anything.

(name, email withheld)

2. YES, I KNOW THIS WOMAN SHE IS MY FIANCE, YANA CHIRUKHINA FROM ZAPOROZHYE, UKRAINE. THERE HAVE DEFINETLY BEEN SOME STRANGE THINGS GOING ON THIS WEEK AND I AM NOT YET SURE WHERE THE TRUTH LIES. I AM WILLING TO SHARE ALL I KNOW IF YOU WILL GIVE ME THE SAME COURTESY.

(name, email withheld)

3. Here is the contact info of the scammer he used to get money by Western Union: Yana Sergejevna Chirukhina RUSTAVI ST 1A # 67 ZAPOROZHYE, UKRAINE 69093 AND PHONE IS 380-612-59-74-46.



Please be advised that this information is not confirmed.  If you happen to know anything about this girl, please let me know

Surname: Chumicheva
Name: Nadya
City: Sevastopol
Country: Ukraine
Postal address: 201-a Ostryakova str. / Apt 22 / Sevastopol 9905 / Ukraine
Phone number: 00.38.06.92.45.73.67
Photos: plese feel free to ask me some if you need some more!

Your story (as detailed as possible):

We wrote each other for about 7/8 months and she scammed me for 100$ pretexting she wanted to learn my language. She sounded very bubbly but clean: home adress, phone number, parents who hanged on the phone, and spoke good English and and some German - she presented herself as a language student in English/German. 

She has a twin sister named Vera (see pictures) The bullshit seemed clean no contradictions ect in what she said, and really was tactfull and took her time to scam me.

This makes her very skilled scammer to me, she even wrote after the money was transfered but wrote shortler mails. Probably thought I would be re-assured not being scammed and would think of something else not receiving mails anymore.

The way she put it wasn't gross or obvious and obviously from the post-scamming mails (received 2) she doesn't want any waves. Bad luck for her :)) I will report her to any antiscam listings as well as customer services of Western Union in Sevastopol, one by one if it needs to be...

I specified on the W-U to show her ID to collect the money so the name should her real name (I mean the scammer's name).

Some picture are small size jpegs, obviously (now at least) copied/pasted from model website. Other pics are scans from magazines (can see the paper).

One last point: in one of the pis attached the background is excatly the same as another picture from another girl who wrote recently (I mean same background as on the pics).

Might be a group of scammers or peoplewho know each other.

Also I found pics of her and her sister on ukrainetours (checking "tour picture" Yalta summer 2002 and 2003 (her twin sister). I have the pics anyway if yu can't access the website, which is listed in scamming websites as a website collecting money for tours which didn't take place with fake girls (probably models).



Please be advised that this information is not confirmed.  If you happen to know anything about this girl, please let me know

Runs usual visa scam.



Please be advised that this information is not confirmed.  If you happen to know anything about this girl, please let me know

Used photos of a Russian singer Julia Nachalova. Runs the usual visa/ticket scenario.

I was reporting a scam alert to your agency when I remarked this photo on your scamming list.

It is a pity that I didn’t check this earlier, before I have send the money.

I have different letter to her (about 60) in & outgoing answers.  

She pretends to live in Cheboksary, Russia at the following address:

TANYA VOLZHANINA
Baumana, house 54, app. 32
709004 Cheboksary
Chuvash Republic
Russia.
tanya_volzh2@list.ru  

In include other pictures of her and a copy of her passport. Because I was cautious, but probably not enough, and I should have consulted your list earlier. Stupid of me.  

She gave her out for TANYA VOLZHANINA from Cheboksary, Russia. She began to write me in December 2003.

Although I was warned by different sites and could avoid cheating before, she succeeded in betraying me for 200$ + 350$.

Also though I found the story not 100% reliable, and with some difficulties I made I transferred 550$ in 2 times, one to help her out of some debts, the second time for her travel costs. It is also stupid of me, because I asked for some proof (like travel papers and advance payment), which I didn’t receive. And a copy of her passport. This I received.

Before I left to Southern Africa, I paid the 350$, doubting because I was not sure and I didn’t receive everything that I asked for. So it is also my fault. But I observe that there is a organized business of relationships fraud going on on which some people (especially in Russia) live from.

I include a copy of her passport.

P.S. This passport (with the real photo of its holder) was used to pick up money transfers effected through Western Union

P.P.S. Note how the photograph in this passport has been simply pasted on, using any graphic editor.  First clue is that the red curvy lines on the left of the photograph should continue on the photo itself.  Second clue is that the picture is grainy and stretched, obviously cropped from another, smaller image, and resized to fit the space in the passport. 



Please be advised that this information is not confirmed.  If you happen to know anything about this girl, please let me know

This girl runs the usual visa/ticket scenario. The coordinates she may use for requesting money transfer is: Country: Ukraine, city: Odessa, name: Inna Chiliyants. She may use her friend's phone number +38 (048) 743-2777.
Her friend's name is Helen, or Elena.

Dear Sir:

I regret to say that I am a scan and financial fraud victim of Mariya Nizovtseva.  To date, I have sent her $1,000 via Western Union for her travel to visit me in the United States, plus transfer fees.  The last $100 was sent August 8, 2003.  In checking with Western Union Customer Service, I was told she picked up the last $100 in Yoshkar-Ola, even though in her last email said she was in Moscow (what a liar). I feel like such a fool to be deceived and mislead by a Russian woman who claims she wants to marry me.  I have attached:

1. All the photos she sent me over the last several months.
2. Notices of Western Union that the money transfers had been picked up by Mariya Nizovtseva
3. Scam emails she sent me asking for money.

I would appreciate it if you would notify the Russian police authorities of this financial scam crime committed against me.  I will notify the United States Secret Service foreign office that investigates financial fraud committed against Americans internationally.

Thanks for your help.  I just saw your Watchdog List, too late to do me any good with Mariya Nizovtseva's picture on it.  I'm sure she is laughing at me all the way to the bank.

I hope this bad experience does not sour me towards Russian women in general.

Unsuccessful Scam Attempt

To whom this concerns, My name is Jim Platter,

On the dating service, I saw this Young lady's profile and wrote a letter to her. She responded with a very positive letter, including, how she had "Such good feelings about me, and hoped that I would become that Special man in her life." Along with sending me pictures of her self, in which I was overwhelmed with her beauty. Along with what I thought were very personal and sweet letters. (I found out only after it was too late, that the sweet letters were mass produced.) She wanted to come and visit me as soon as she graduated from collage at the end of May 2003. She needed money for the visas/passports, and airline ticket. She was writing from the town of Yoshkar-Ola, Russia. She also works in conjunction with a claimed travel agent, Mikhail.

Her name is, and I found her pictures in another scam alert site with a different name. The first name was Inna (or something like that.) But the name she used with me was Masha Bogatyreva. She got $900.00 from me plus Western Union fees and the interest that I will have to pay on that money.

She has robbed at least three other men that I am know of. She claims that she works for a model agency. (And she may very well do so.)

It would be good if she spent some time in the Jail for what she is doing. I don't consider my self a very emotional type of person, but I was sure falling for this Masha Bogatyreva. When I realized that she was just scamming me it hurt in more ways than the just the pocket book.

If you have any further questions please be sure and let me know.

Sincerely Jim.

I was in contact with Olga Markelova from Kirov. Russia for quite a while. We corresponded, and had even planned to meet in Prague in early September. She then began to ask me for $100 per month to use the Internet Club in Kirov. I refused to send it, as you had advised. She then kept at me and finally told me I was false and had thrown her away. I feel very badly, but there does not seem to be any way to resolve the situation. I simply wanted to report this to you because I felt I might have been scammed. It is distressing because she seemed, from our emails, to have been a very lovely and loving human being, and just what I might have been looking for.



Please be advised that this information is not confirmed.  If you happen to know anything about this girl, please let me know

Please be advised that I have been coned out of $2,050.00 from a woman in the name of Katerina Bulatovia.

Her e-mail is Katti2006@<removed for privacy> and she said she was using a computer at the internet cafe to correspond with me.

Her address is: Russia, Voljsk, street I-Kirli house 5 apartment <removed for privacy> zip 424000. Please try to Black list her from trying to con & do in other gentleman with good intentions if you can. She had found me on your profile and e-mailed me first.

1. This lady sent a money request to one of our customers:

Truly, I want to be married soon. Maybe, we can meet so that we can try a trial engagement if we find that the love component is there between us and get a chance to see if we are destined to be together. I am very sorry to tell you about that, but I know writing letters throught the internet is the fasties way to get to know each other and I am always very happy to get all of your letters and replay to you as soon as possible. I knew I would have to pay the money in order to correspondens with you, but I din't know it would take so much money. I am very sorry I came up with such a matters. But it is pretty expensive for me to pay for the letters and for the translations. I mean I can speak English a little bit, but that is not enough in order to express my feelings to you. The point of this is I would like very much for you to pay for our correspondence. I would really appreciate if you can help me with some money, and it would give me a chance to write you more often. Again I am sorry. Each time I send or get letter I pay about 5$ with translation for each one. You can send me some money via Western Union System on my name;
Ukraine, 65000, Odessa
st.Nikolaevskaya doroga <removed for privacy>
Smirnova Oksana

2. Another customer of ours has supposed that this lady is running a scam scheme:

And another question: time ago I've ordered profile of Oksana Reference: 78647. I've contacted her and when I've asked her phone number (because I've programmed to go to Odessa and I wanted to put in phone contact with her), she did not write me more after this. and before she had written me very lovely letters. It's seems like a scam to me. Are there someone else who have the same my opinion?

This scammer - Oksana Smirnova - is still operating in Odessa using the same mailing address for Western Union transfers and new email which is blacksea@farlep.net. One of our visitors has reported that "they" (the scammers) send out letters that are a complete replica copy of the one used before. So, be aware.



Please be advised that this information is not confirmed.  If you happen to know anything about this girl, please let me know

A women Olga Sivenko (St. Petersburg, Russia) corresponded with me via e-mail and telephone. She presented the opportunity to travel to the USA to visit me as part of a tour using a student visa.

Hello Russian-Brides-club Manager,

I'd like to bring a letter to your attention which I believe belongs to Lydmila <removed for privacy> #72476 from Yalta Ukraine I wrote two Ludmilas, however, the other was from Russia and as you will note this one has a Ukrainian Email address.

I purchased her address and four others on Monday. I received the attached Email back from her immediately the next day. (It's safe to open). As you will note it's exclusively a money request. I'm very experienced in this process and even a rookie could spot this as an obvious scammer.

I've spent almost half a year in the Ukraine and very few GOOD LOOKING women have a problem scrounging up five hryvnia for an hour of Internet time (despite what many agencies would have us believe). In the rare case they can't come up with it, no legitimate woman would ask for it, ESPECIALLY IN THE FIRST LETTER!

I just thought I would advise you of this situation.

Regards, Rick Cumming
