Russian Scam Message Board - Russian Scams and Russian Scammers

This is the alphabetical listing of Russian scammers and Russian agencies involved in Russian dating fraud or Russian scam. The name of the person where the money is sent is the key issue in a Russian scam, and the same Russian scammer may use different photos. Also, the same set of photos may be used under different names. Most known Russian scams appear to be run by the same few groups of Russian scammers using different names and photos. Photos used in a Russian scam do not necessarily belong to the Russian scammer, and may be simply downloaded from the Internet.

If you would like to report a Russian scam or a Russian scammer and to be listed on the pages of Russian scams, please do it here.

Please remember that Russian Scam is not a law enforcement agency and do not investigate or prosecute criminals. Only authorized law enforcement agencies can prosecute your offenders. To have them prosecuted, you will need to make an official statement to police and lay charges. Russian scam collects and publishes data of Russian scams and Russian scammers only.

If you want to make sure that the person you communicate with is not a Russian scammer, we advise you to read the Anti-scam manual.

Chaldishkin, Nikolay - Perm City, Russia 

Postal Address: Tramvaynaja Street, 14 do Vostrebovanija
Phone Number: Unknown (said parents did not have a phone; yet he called me twice!)

Details: I was contacted by Nikolay through He was extremely cautious about answering most of my questions. Pretended to go to Moscow to Odessia Agency to be trained for his visa and passport. He offered to pay for his trip and schooling if I would pay for his plane fare. I offered sky miles for his airline ticket; however, he said that the agency would lose their reputation and license so I sent money not only for airline ticket but also for visa. Then suddenly he said there was a tax on the money I had sent via Western Union. I refused to send anymore money. Then the communication from him stopped. Watch Nikolay: He's very smooth and very clever. Do not be influenced by his "falling in love" with you, his tears, his wanting to come to America, his offering to work when he arrives because he "is not lazy and wants to work." Nikolay is indeed a scammer!

Chatka, Yana – 300 miles south of Moscow, Russia 

Agency: Dating direct (uk)
E-mail address:

Details: I was contacted by the scammer saying she was really interested in me!!! Deleted the first couple of messages, because I thought it was a mate winding me up!!! Initially, after realizing it wasn’t my mate I fell for her story, and responded with a few letters, it was only when she started coming on strong that I suspected something.
Found out online about the scams, and decided to play along for a bit to see what happened, she would send many short letters (not included) to try and get me to respond every day!! But I was too busy to do so!! Letters went on for several weeks until she popped the scam!! I told her that I didn’t trust sending money by wire transfer and that I would fly out to Russia and meet her in Moscow! Made up a false flight number etc… and never heard from her again!!!

Cherezova Oksana - Odessa, Ukraine

Address: 14 Krasnova Street, Apartment 198, Odessa, she also uses 90 Filatova Street, Apartment 104, Odessa - which i believe is her sister's apartment 
Website: RussianBrides.Com

Details: Yes she did ask for money, constantly, First to pay necessary bills as her air conditioning units was not work, then for a dog for her daughters, then to assist her each month so she could work less hours and spend more time with her daughters, then for presents for her daughters, and finally for a visa application. She also attempted to get money from me to "get rid of her ex", which meant pay him to go away and pay him his half of the apartment. I did not pay the $15,000 she was asking but someone else did pay some money to her. I am down about $15,000 and a man i know is down over $20,000 plus a trip overseas for her, her children and a friend of hers. At the end she offered her friend to him but while there she made sure she got plenty of money and was wined and dined as much as she could. She says she is a practicing vet but we (yes there are more than two of us who have been scammed who are in contact) believe she either works for RussianBrides.Com and earns from her scams and chatting or in another related industry. Her finger nails indicate she is not wearing too many surgical gloves and she only seems to work at night. We never had a relationship but I did meet her. She is a consummate con artist and was all over me when we met (even in front of her daughters). She never had any intention of having a relationship with me nor any western man as she is in a relationship already. She is still on the site, from about 11pm Ukraine time to 4am / 5am Ukraine time. I contacted Russian Brides but they simply did nothing apart from try to talk me around to using their site which i will never do, and would recommend no one else does. Her bank account details are as below if you want to inform her bank. I am sure Chase Bank would like to close the account of a mail fraudster. The deposits to that account would be interesting
