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.

Rodionov, Konstantin(Kostya) - Zelenodolsk, Russia
Address: Lenina 35,
Zelenodolsk or do vostrebovanija, 420000, Russia
Details: Typical contacted via gay.com, wanted
money. Gave sob story about no money, he was studying to be a
dentist. Mention two
friends' names: Kirill and Grisha.
Another scam's details:
Agency: ICQ and gay.com
Details: Initially made contact through ICQ possibly as
far back as 2002, then, almost a year ago, Kostya 'found me'
through gay.com and began to communicate with me. Told very
believable story about just completing dentistry school....sent
me a copy of his passport when I questioned him and feared a
scam...the passport LOOKS legitimate. Used names of friends
Kirill and Girsha, talked much about his 15 yo brother Misha who
is employed by the state as a boxer...his Mother Vera is either
a physician or works for one...Father Nikolay is a teacher...
Our emails were personal 'life' stories, where we were from,
school history, college history, stories about family and
occasionally sex, sometimes detailed, sometimes romantic...We
exchanged MANY photos of family and friends came to know each
others family by name, well.
He was always hesitant to ask for money...once had 'frostbite'
and discouraged me sending $240 for meds he needed for
treatment..I felt sorry and sent $180 for which he thanked me
repeatedly, he was always very gracious about my monetary gifts.
All were geared toward his $360 requirement for a visa to come
live with me, then recently $1232 for a plane ticket...his
arrival time and destination all disclosed by him to me...I am
still in the process of seeing if the name actually appears on a
manifest for the airline.
I sent a total of approximately $1800 over the course of 6
months. His Uncle Sergey Tkachenko was my Western Union contact,
as I could not send directly to him since this would cue
officials that he had a benefactor in the US and he would not be
able to leave the Country.
He supposedly left Zelenodolsk by train with the Uncle Sergey,
who is disabled from Afghanistan War, and lived in Hotel in
Moscow for one month while AGENCY helped him secure his
visa...Great detail about daily interviews, medical testing,
etc. Then, the REQUIREMENT that he have $2400 with him before he
can leave Russia so that he will not be 'dependent' upon anyone
while he is in America.
This concerned me, so I checked the pick up point of my more
recent contribution, it was Stragegya Bank in Cheboksary,
Russia...NOT Moscow where he would have been at the time.
He gives a birthdate of 11JUN1983, confirmed on the passport I
have scanned image of.
It is hard to believe he is a scammer, he is VERY convincing!
