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.

Yaroshenko, Svetlana – Donetsk, Ukraine 

Postal address: Nijnekurganskaya street, 31/85
Phone number: +380 661 771 748

Details: I met Svetlana (Lana) online more than 1 year ago. We talked mostly about life. It was very pleasant. Then it started. The sad stories about her difficult life. I felt compelled to help her. Sometimes she would ask for help and sometime she would not. She was very sly.

I met her in person last July. I went to her city. When I wanted to return. She kept telling me it was a bad time for me to visit her. I should have guessed then something was wrong.

Then she began to have major health problems, hospital stays, operations, illnesses. She always needed money. I met this woman and visited with her in her city. I thought we really had something. She also needed money to help her grandmother move in with her. She needed money for furnishings. I only wanted the best for her... to help her.

But, I learned recently when WU refused to send her money... she has been Red-flagged as a fraud. So, I did some investigating. I was shocked!!! This woman is scamming many men. She owns an internet porno studio in her city. She has a car. She coaches the girls in the studio on how to scam men. Everything she told me... all the sad stories, health problems... all were lies. Her grandmother lives alone in another city. Lana lives with her boyfriend that was just released from prison.

I am trying to shutdown her porno studio by contacting all the live internet chat sites her studio uses and inform them of her activities. I am also working with the local police. The Russian FSB has been very helpful.
