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.

Travina, Nadezdha - Cheboksary, Russian Federation


Details: I am a middle-aged man from California. I began corresponding with Nadezhday (Nadya) on November 30 and by December 17 she was madly in love with me. Of course I did not send her any money, nevertheless perhaps this information will help rotect other men from her scam.

She sent me quite a few letters, seldom answering any questions I asked of her or even replying to anything I had written. In an effort to waste as much of her time as possible and make her work a little harder on her scam I would occasionally write and tell her that her letters sounded like form letters and that I was not interested in further correspondence unless she
answered all the questions I had asked her in previous letters. So she would have to go back and actually read my letters and take the time to write a letter instead of just copying and pasting one of her form letters.

Tsytsareva, Svetlana Kogalym, Russia 

Postal address:
Novoselos Street 21
628482 Kogalym

Details: She picked up the money in St Petersburg Russia which is now where near
Kogalym or Moscow. And she was receiving money from across the US from several locations.

I originally met her on a single site. then we corresponded via hotmail and the my regular home e-mail address. I have not received any responses from the FBI web site that I reported this to.

I originally contacted her on true by accident and thought it was some web site trying to get me to buy into something. As you can read with her
response I thought she was for real and all of her e-mail was very convincing. She told me she needed money for her visa and air fare. I found out later after e-mailing the embassy that it only cost 100USD for a visa, I sent her 400USD. I also sent here 1700USD for air fare and money for hotel and food while she obtained her visa. I believed that she had to fly into Moscow from Kogalym.

She then stated she had received the visa and found out she needed a 1000USD for guarantee money to prove to customs she had enough money stay in the states and stated she would give it to me as soon as she got here. I sent it to her. I later found after contacting the embassy that this was a common scam.

She the stated that she got in trouble with costumes by not claiming a Russian gift and had to pay a fine and fees and was short money for the trip and asked for and additional 650USD. I was about to send it when the western union rep told me she was receiving money from several locations in the states. I canceled the transaction and found that she had picked up the money in St. Petersburg Russia not Kogalym of Moscow as I originally thought.

She e-mailed me trying to make me feel guilty for here problems and still asked for more money.
