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.

Esemanova, Oksana Anatolevna - Kargopol, Russia

Email Address:

Details: Met on Zoosk but said she wasn't a member and lured me to her Email address. She said she was an art teacher for 10 and 12yo girls. She taught sewing and knitting and just wanted to pass on the skills she learned from her "mum". She told me she had a brother but lost him when he was 6 and she was 3 years old. She said she can barely remember him but her mother was still in mourning and she feels bad for her. She said her dad liked wasting time in the garden. She also told me I reminded her of her father. Her parents live in Nicolsk, a small town about 2hrs away by bus. She complained about drunk men harassing her in the park and therefore doesn't drink. Also told me a story about being very upset when she saw one of her students smoking. This girl is very sweet and very convincing that she is a naive girl from a small city in north east Russia. She talks about spending a lot of time in the park and would love to walk with you there holding hands and getting to know each other. About 3 weeks in she said that the fire department came in to inspect and closed her school because of violations. She never asked for money and seemed strong and independent. Don't get me wrong...this is a very clever scam artist. After writing every day for 2 or 3 months and professing her love she suggested that we meet and would love to come to New York to live. She claimed to have visited the 'tourist agents' in her town and needed $640 for her passport and visa. Her plane fare would cost another $1000. When I suggested I could find her tickets online for half that cost she said that her travel agents, Putevka, would pay for her travail expense to St. Petersburg and would counsel her about the visa hearing and would take care of her hotel expenses and take her to the airport to catch the flight that I payed for. The day I was getting ready to pick her up from the airport I received a letter saying she was very upset and didn't know what would be. Customs needed her to show $3000 to prove she could support her stay in New York. She said that she would return that money as soon as she arrived. I called the US Consulate in St Petersburg and got very little help. I also questioned her extensively about her documentation and foolishness of customs demanding to see cash and the dangers of a young girl carrying such a large sum of money. She had answers for everything and produced papers and proof of her passport and visa. I believe these were all photo shopped forgeries. The thought of a girl that I cared about being stranded at Pulkovo Airport and her desperate pleas for help drove me to send her the money a week later. She was very excited and couldn't wait to be together. She gave me the flight information and as I was getting ready to pick her up again I received a letter saying she had been foolish and was hit over the head and robbed of the $3000 before 
she could show customs. This girl is very persistent and very clever. Trust me when I say she is only after your money. She doesn't care about any hardship you are experiencing as long as you send her money. You will be left broke and heartbroken and she will walk away with your hard earned money. I would love to see her caught and prosecuted for her crimes but it is very difficult because she is half a world away.
