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.

Smalskyte Dovile - Vilniuas, Lithuania

Address: Vilniuas, Lithuania

Details: I lost 950 dollar. I met Dovile on Japan in January 2014. I bought her plane tickets. It was a big mistake. She came to Japan to marry me. I met her in on Narita airport. She moved out with me quickly, booked herself in at the Akasaka hotel in Tokyo where her friend is staying. She looked like some professional hostess. She lied to me so many times and as a result our relationship ends because of her lies. I cannot tell you how disappointed I am. This type of crime committed by this woman is too much for me to accept.

Agency: Yahoo Personals

Details: She started writing to me a letter saying that she liked my profile. By the 5th letter of saying things about herself about a man deceiving her in the past and me saying things about myself to get to know each other, she says she loves me. Then she started asking for money for a visa: $400.00 and money for plane tickets $1500.00 saying that she was earning very low income ( about 200.00 per month) on a fitness facility. She gave me this address:

I sent her flowers through Russian and they said that nobody lived in that address with the name I provided to them. I e-mailed her about it and she said that she was living with her grand parents and then gave me this address:

Cheboksary 428022
Street Dekabristov 169 apartment 25
Smirnova Ludmila

Then she said that mail in Russia works really bad and whatever I send her will not reach her, so I sent the people of Russian Flora again to the new address because they have a service of taking a picture of the delivery and sending it online, but again they reported that nobody with the name I provided to them lived there. Then I stopped everything.

Spesivtseva Kristina - Novosibirsk, Russia

Address: Apartment 9, Bloka 17,Novosibirsk,Novosibirsksaya Oblast, 630051, Russia
Phone: 0079538044188

Details: I was first contacted by this woman on the 3/04/13 with just the one photo. From then i was getting 2 emails per week with perhaps 4 photos in each email. Nothing was mentioned about money until she suggested her coming to the UK on a students visa as a nanny and she needed half the money to come to the UK for her flight which like a fool i sent it her by Western Union. she gave me the flight details time leaving Moscow and time arriving Heathrow so when i asked her what terminal i got no answer. When the time got closer i got another email asking for some more money as she had not got enough to go through the checks which is required so again i sent her some more, she had by then changed her flight for a later one, when the time arrived for that one she then told me that she had been in an accident and broke her rib so it was dangerous to fly. It was then arranged that she would fly to me in 3 weeks time after going back to Novosibirsk and she would tell me of the new arrangements. As of this morning i had not had any emails from this woman, so i emailed her on the email address which i have been using since the first correspondence and got back the message no email address known, that is when it really dawned on me that i had been scammed out of nearly £1000 pounds sterling. I must admit i have been a silly and stupid fool, but she was so convincing. Very possible the person in the photos are of a different person who has been writing to me, and does not know her photos are being used, if so i feel sorry for her. The address of the Western Union office is VOKZALNAYA MAGISTRAL 3 NOVOSIBIRSK 630004.I hope that this information helps other people who may get emails from this person using these photos. Thank you for your help.

Emails are nothing but romantic and idealistic, doesn't answer questions, talks about friends Elena & Natasha (also see posting for Natasha Milenok - photo is of same girl) Claims to be a dentist. Was cautious to begin with but knew it was a scam after a couple of emails when she ignored all questions and her emails were just full of useless fluff with paragraphs sounding like they were copied straight out of Mills & Boon. Played her for 3 weeks after that and scam was confirmed when she made a mistake by signing off as Veronika (who she'd mentioned previously as a friend who owned a photo studio and took modelling photos for her) Wise up guys!!

3. All of her letters seemed to be "cut and paste", as the first 4 letters were all in different typefont. I have left these fonts from the original 
e-mails. The money request comes in letter 6 and 7 , where she has lost her job and has no money for her food or rent and I am the only one who can help her. I suggested I could deliver the money personally as I had her address and

E-Mail: Yahoo messenger 

Details: I was contacted by "Svetlana" via yahoo messenger, after only 2 days she was asking me for money to come to the US, $949.00 for her ticket, said he was already working on her visa & travel arrangements, even went as far as sending me a copy of a so called itinerary showing if payment was not made to "Betta travel" by the day before flight it would be cancelled....( looked as if copy & pasted off of an actual airline website as far as what to bring, how to pack, me) that she had told her parents about me (why would someone do that after two days?) and how without my help she would be stuck in her country where conditions were just awful. When I said I couldn't help her in aspects of money, she got very upset and told me she was not an idiot, that I must be scamming her.

Svish Inna (aka name Sofia Lynovish) - Kiev, Ukraine

Address: Kiev, Ukraine

Details: I've been scammed by ms. Sofia Lynovish (aka name Inna Svish what seems to be her real name) Ms. Sofia Lynovish and Ms. Inna Svish (same person acting under both names) asked money for travel, for studies (tuition fees), for problem with the justice claiming she had to go to court and in that she has been helped by an alleged lawyer acting under the name "Clevis Gadinga" who sent me fake documents (e.g. fake passport and fake inheritance will). She is a master, with her accomplices, to milk out money for whatever invented reason, to honest people… and I've been abused by that.
