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.

Guseva, Lyudmila - Astrakhan, Russia

E-mail address:

Details: It is typical scam, sad story about life, falls in love quickly and wants to visit, and get married. Asks for $450 for visa. A picture with every email. Some look real, some proffesional. The emails kind of slowed down when i mentioned that i had done my own research into prices of visas and airfare. I almost sent money, but wasn't going to until i had more research it, and the fact that i actually never net the person. I am currently still in contact with this person to see how far they will go. I am still getting emails even though i said to her that i have read up on scamming. She just keeps proclaiming her 
love and saying how we should be together. If you ask her questions she will not answer, yet she tells you to ask anything. About the third letter i questioned her on hockey for about two paragraphs and that was all i sent as an email. Her response was that she was going to the visa agency in the morning to see what it would take to get her. I do not have any emails as i always erase them right after but i will collect some more if it contues and send them to you.

Gusva, Elvira aka Eleonora – Kazan, Russia 

Details: supposedly worked with orphan children in san francisco area.. later to find out that she made 650 a week.. per a repayment of the money i would send her to get thru customs.. at airport.. which now is apparently 1500.00 to have available to stop immigration...much to her surprise

this lady or person is good... she will start very slowly... with stories of a friend she works with named ginnie and this ladies son patrick... who is drawing her pictures and has small crush on her.. she will then tell you she has been in usa almost a year and is due to get a month of leave .. then her friend olga's is apparently getting married.. and she has decided to go be in the wedding... on that she will give you when she is leaving and when the wedding is.. and the customs .. then she misses you terribly and still has several days of leave..and she would like to come and visit you in your part of the usa.. before returning to california..

she gets ticket.. takes two hr. trip to be close to airport.. picks up ticket and then finds out she has to have the 1500/$ to be available either thru cash or credit card.. she has part of it.. but just not enough... first offer was for 850... i wouldnt agree.. so she played it out... finally spoke with her mother.. and she is sending her... more than half.. still needs just that little to 300.. her wording and emotions can come thru as a sincere emotional trip.. she has been in town two days since she found out.. her plane leaves the next morning.. she is tired and stressed.... very very believable.. i have to give her credit... she is good... i have had lots of these things.. but none this suffisticated...she sends you the airport info.. flight... i had checked the airlines... flight was exact.. with transfers and times.. if she turns in her ticket and goes back to her parents she loses 20%... when you send it by western union.. you give no.s.. of course she gives you her name.. thus the elvira gusva... she has to rush because the train to airport from internet cafe.. she must hurry.. and thats the last you here..

i didnt realize this site existed.. as i have others thru the years that have tried to do the scam... i actually see ones picture is already on here... i will address that one also when i dig out some of the info i have left.. thank you for your time..

Gusva, Elvira aka Eleonora – Kazan, Russia 

Phone: +380 (63) 0127426

Details: I reported her but she deleted profile and left site so they could not do anything about it. We began emailing for several weeks. She claimed to be poor, didn't have money for a smart phone, nice things, like a computer so she could only write at work once a day. She worked in accounting. She has a daughter named Kseniya and built up a story of being widowed and sad because her husband was killed in the war. I was suspicious because in the photos she sent me, ( I don't have them all because I deleted all the emails from her with them because I was upset) she always looked glamorous, with nice clothes, jewellery. Even though her story seemed suspect, my weakness took over and i agreed to send her 750.00 via western union so she could buy a computer so we could write every day and talk on web cam. She thanked me and said she was serious about me and that she would take down her profile and not look for other men. She said she couldn't wait to write every day and see each other. It's three weeks later and I haven't heard from her again. My emails go unanswered. She took her profile off Elena's and I did a Google image search on her picture in the red dress and she popped up on a bunch of other dating sites leaving posts as recent as yesterday searching for more victims I can only assume. I plan on reporting this as well to western union, US embassy, and other agencies as well to make sure this doesn't happen to others. It's a shame there are so many dishonest people out there.
