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.

Demidov, Denis - Cheboksary, Russia

Phone: no phone
Address: Apt 138Kadykova Street, 36

Details: A  23 year-old male living with parents, recently graduated from "Pedagogical Institute". After corresponding for a month, with not particularly good English and little questions answered or information given, asks for help with "visa" money to emigrate or visit you. Letters tend to be almost surrealistically romantic and make little rational sense. Asks for 350 dollars for visa costs, etc. via Western Union. Also sent one photo of city (Cheboksary) and four photos of "his pet fish".  Yes! This happens to innocent, if gullible guys looking for guys too! By the same perpetrators (it seems)!

Demidova Natasha/Natalya - Tomsk, Russia

Phone: no phone
Address:  Russia, Tomsk, 634027, Koltcevoi proezd, 39 - 34


Details: Small talk for a few emails but avoided
answering many questions.  She says she taught a psychology class at the Tomsk Polytchnical University.  After 2 weeks, she told me she had a month long vacation in just 3 weeks and wanted to see me, asking for visa/airfare. I looked into a flight and reserved one, but she insisted it had to be done through an agency that was affiliated with her school.  We went back and forth over and I became more suspicious.  She even called and left a message, saying "we need to talk".  I demanded she send me a copy of her passport and I immediately thought she didn't look like the original photos I had of her.  Also, the seal on the passport is not embossed. There were 3 names and addresses she asked me to send money to.

Deruybina, Anna - Kolgaym City, Russia


Details: I was contacted like many oterhs and we had a 3 month email exchange, during which shew asked for nothing (Which I don't understand). About halfway through, I told her I found her pictures on a Scammer Web Site ans she told mw that her pictures wer solen and used for no good. I forgave her and we maintained the email exchange. Then a bout two weeks a go I got an email from It was word for word, the same text as the first. I sent "Anna" the copy of the new email and told her if I got another I would send that too. I did, and haven't heard from her since. Seems to me, that it is like a busininess. Someone should try to stop it. 
I will attach the text of the 2 letters and all the photos, including #2 woman. The letter is the same, Only the name changed from Anna to Marina.

Dimitrova Anastasia - Odessa, Ukraine

Phone: +380635665830
Address: Odessa, Ukraine

Details: I think that I have been the victim of the restaurant and interpreter scamming scheme. We started communicating with each other after I got an invite from this girl for chat. We first met on dream-marriage, after that she moved to other site brides-in-bikini. Lately she can also be found on other sites like Anastasiadate. Correspondence lasted for 8 months with online chat and expensive video chats. At this moment there was nothing which was reason for alarm. She looked like a normal girl with sincere interests. We spoke a few times over the telephone, and I also sent some short messages to her private email, sent her a present to know that she was real. I decided that it was time for a personal meeting, so I headed to her city. To my surprise she had almost forgotten about our meeting. I had to send text message to remind her. The first meeting went well. We met at a restaurant of my choosing. After that she took over and started taking us to all the expensive restaurants in the city. Anyone who has been in Odessa knows that the prices there are steep. I had to pay for the translator and taxi for her to get home. This was all acceptable for me, until a certain point. After several meetings with interpreter I asked the girl to meet me without interpreter. Then things started to get weird. She made up several excuses not to come (being sick, having to visit a girlfriend who just delivered a baby, etc). After I insisted on meeting without translator, she sent me text message that it was all over, and that she did not want to meet anymore. Sometimes there is a fine line between being rejected and getting scammed. I believe that this was a scam scenario. The ending of the meetings was too abrupt and unexpected to be normal for me. The meetings cost me over 1500 Euro's. The chat correspondence must have cost the same amount. I do not know if this girl is paid for chatting with men. She looks very good, so she must attract a lot of possible victims. In any case I would like to warn others about this girl.

Djanshieva Marina - Perm Krai, Russia

Address: Gogol Street 2, Kungur, Perm Krai, Russia

Details: I was scammed out of $3,600 by this woman, and her supposedly probable partner. That was approximately 2 or more months ago. Now, she is back again, the exact same woman, under a different name as, Ekaterina Kotelnikowa with different contact information, and new email address, and/or Here is her recent contact information that I just received from her: Her full name: Ekaterina Kotelnikowa. Her address: Russia, Perm Krai , Kungur, Gogol Street 2. I have been going along with her scam and writing back to her under a different name, Scott, and a different email address. I have been communicating with her at this present time in order to gain more information on her and her scam and expose her. I am now at this present time, at the stage where I am being asked by her to send her 530 dollars to help her with the flight travel to my country to be with me. Of course, this is just the beginning of her many more requests for me to send her my money. Been there, done that, already! This woman, and I'm sure she has a partner in these scams, needs to be stopped and prosecuted immediately before stealing anymore of other people's money.
