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.

Lobanova, Svetlana Surgut, Russia 

Postal address: Apartment 34, 15 Enthusiast Street, Surgut, Russia.
E-mail address:

Details: She wrote to me through yahoo personals at first using a name svetopolka, then using her own e-mail address. We were sending letters over a month or so , getting really close ( I thought). I had fallen for her, she sent two pics with some of her letters. Then we agreed she should come to England to meet me on a tourist visa.She lived in Surgut which is far from Moscow where she needed to go to obtain a tourist visa. So she asked for 280 to help travel to Moscow and pay for visa, because no one had that sort of money in her family there. So I sent it via Western Union to a bank she said where she could pick it up from. We had spoke on the phone a few times, each time she phoned me because she said she didn`t have a phoneline in apartment, ( even on my mobile ). She sent me letter saying she had arrived in Moscow safely and was staying with a friend. All through this she was very polite and appreciative of what I was doing for her and sounded like she hated asking me for the money. Then she sent me a letter and rang me being very upset saying she needed 780 for a round trip for proof she was returning, before the Embassy would grant her a visa.I usually have good common sense in normal life and am weary of peop[le, but was blinded by the excitement of all what was happening. I started to wonder and sent her details of return flights which cost 420 and would buy them and send them to her, but she said she had to pay for tickets herself from there. Being stupid and nieve I sent money through Western Union again to a bank she had stated in Moscow. So I knew the original money was picked up in Surgut and this money was picked up in Moscow ( I thought this was real because she had travelled to Moscow ). The next few letters were good then she was in a state again ( crying on phone etc ) saying she needed a guarentee of 1500 to the Embassy so as she wouldn`t come to England as tramp etc. At this point I woke up out of fantasy land and e-mailed the British Embassy in Moscow about this, also e-mailed Home Office in England. I didn`t hear anything for a few days and with Svetlana saying she needed answer quick I rang the British Embassy in Moscow. I explained everything to them and asked about the bond or guarentee which they said they do not ask for that at all, and asked them to check if she had applied for a visa. They had no person on record of that name and told me it was a scam. I hadn`t heard of scams before then and was devastated. Then she rang me again so I told her everthing I had found out, and told her how I felt and what I thought of her, she still persisted in saying she was true and not scamming me. Also said she would return money. I haven`t received money after 10 days, also didn`t send me any letters until I said I was putting her photos and personal information on all scam sites,personals sites,Home Office, British Embassy in Moscow , Iterpol and Western Union etc.Then she rang me still sayiny she was true and needed 1500 for guarentee.I told her she wasn`t true and a scammer, amonst other things and she was not getting the 1500. I have not heard from her since and not received any money back, so thus she is now on this site and others to protect others hopefully.

Lymareva Irina - Novosibirsk, Russia

Address:  21/7 Medkadry, Novosibirsk, Novosibirskaya oblast, 630075, Russia

Details: I have been in contact with this Siberian 29-year-old woman since late, late March.
I told her I never joined any Russian site, but she ignored my question. She was very persistent in writing me weekly - usually with pictures in various poses. The last one included her with a new passport in hand. She even showed me her passport in detail. It all seemed so real. She seemed so genuine. She wrote of serious marriage with me and moving to my country quickly, as he school visa was soon in her hands. She had this already? It was her wish to be with a love she could be with for many years. She convinced me to make a fool of myself in front of others. She then suddenly claimed to be 260 dollars short. She was surprised at the cost. I asked her at various times if I could telephone her. She ignored my requests. As the weeks went on, suddenly she started to add a lot of information on how I was to pay her for a school visa. She went through various ways on how to do it, including adding her local bank, Money Mart or Western Union. So she pleaded to hurry with the payment as the visa cut-off date was less than a few days away. Everything from her seemed rushed. She did not even comment on my own photo. Nothing. With each email she sent, she just kept adding her own numerous pictures of herself in various locations. I got tipped off by a few of these websites that she is a fraud. It was heart-breaking. She must be exposed, as she appears to be unstoppable on the web. She hurts with deceit. I invested my time and told others of my good luck. I am now being pointed-out as a fool. As I wrote, her letters were unlike any average Russian woman would write. Too detailed. Too perfect. No incorrect words spelt in English.

Lyubov, Sharov - Kirova, Cheboksary, Chuvash Republic, Moscow 

Address: Flat 32, House 72

Details: I started to correspond with this girl and started to make up hardship stories and evaded many questions that I put to her. I even send her a gift of A$200 from my own volition to help her. Then I wanted to go and visit her in Chubash Republic. She does not want me to go there and wants for visa and return airfare over US$3000. Does not want to present passport to Western Union and much more that is contrary to the local law. I do not understand why she does not believe me that for a visa to come to Australia it takes months and that sending money without her visa and passport is just not logical. I am thankful that she had a photo and profile in based in Australia and was living in Russia. The language keeps on changing and that the photo may not be hers either. I tried to talk with her in Russian and my Nigerian friend thinks they might be his countrymen using Russian girl's photo for visa and air ticket scam.
