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.

Hramzovacv, Asya - Belorechensk, Russia

Details: The story is simple. I met her (Asya Hramzova) on Anastasia date website ( We exchanged over 15 letters and spent a lot of time on chat (almost everyday) before I decided to go to see her. She was charming, understanding…until I go there. I realized that it wasn`t the same person. In a week, I saw her 3 times for a total of 10 hours. While we meet, she asked me the same questions that she asked me in her letters and by chat. When I asked her for her personal details, she gave me an email address but she didn`t reply to my email and my "interpreter" told me that she was refusing to communicate with me with another way (skype, ooVoo, email,…) than the chat of the website. According to the interpreter, Asya was not used to use email...?! I felt suspicious and when I came back home, I have created a "fake" profile with the face a very handsome man (about 35 and apologizes to him) found on Internet and I waited to see if she would send to "him" (my fake profile) an invitation to chat. Within 2 days, she sent an invitation to chat and in less than 20 minutes (15,99$ for 20 minutes of chat), I had the proof that she was cheating on me. She called him "handsome", she told him "I like you very much" even if she didn`t know him 5 minutes earlier…when I asked her: "I`m new on the website, did you find someone interesting...She replied "Not really"...and a lot more questions like that…. I was back home for only for 5 days…and she was already ready to find “the man of her dreams”. 

Obviously, she wasn`t the person who sent me the letters and she was just a "toy" used by the Russian agency to attract western men. Letters, chat, translation fees, interpreter,…costs a lot but I still believing that some Russian women are true and really want to find a husband.

Did you report the scam to the agency: YES
What was the agency response: They delete my profile and they answered me: "We can`t do anything for you..."
