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.

Ivanova, Irina aka Gera

First reported: Michael 



Ivanova, Ksenia – Yoshkar-Ola, Russia 

Nickname: Lexus

Details: This person contacted me through, calling herself Lexus. Within a couple of emails she was professing undying love for me and saying how we should be married. Like an idiot, I bought it because she is very beautiful, and at first she sounded very sincere. Then I noticed she was only answering one or two questions out of each email, and hardly referring to any of my emails content. When I checked out her name under the scammers website I didn't find anything, but by going through every single photo under "Elena's Models" Blacklist, I did find a photo with a close resemblance, under Viktoriya Ivanova, Kazan. I also found many similarities -even identical sentences-in some of the other Yoshkar Ola scammers. 

This woman, person?, never asked me for money, just let it be known that she was struggling financially. Before I caught on, I had sent her a gift - summer clothes valued at about $40. I was going to send her another $50 for phone money, but found out just in time.
