Alekseeva, Nadezhda (Nadya) – Lyskovo, Russia
Address: Swerdlow Street 14/3, Lyskovo, Russia
Details: She is good. After 3 weeks i ask her to visit me in my country (Netherland). 3 weeks later she said that she will visit me and she’s going to a travellingagency for info. There they told her how much money she needed for the document, ticket and visa. About 800 euro. She asked me to send the money by MoneyGram.
Then she went to Moscow to visit the dutch ambassy to get her visum. They told her that for a visum of 90 days she needed 4500 euro’s. 50 euro a day to live. A place to sleep, to eat and drink. Thats the law in the Netherlands and is correct. After that she send me the flightinfo, also correct. But she never show up.
Indeed, she is good. She used as a emailaddress; email@example.com I’ve got messages from her in my own language, she used a online translator. In every letter she called my name several times, a different strategy? Now she told me that she was arrested saturday on the airport in Moscow for smuggling antic stuff. Her own stuff, she said. Now she must pay a penalty a 9600 euro’s to be free or by judge and than between 3,5 and 6 years prison. Can that be truth? I dont believe it. She needed still 5100 euro’s to pay the penalty.

Alekseeva, Oksana – Kotlas, Russia
Address: Travel agent: “Max Travel” maxtravel-kotlas.narod.ru. Arkhangelsk, Kotlas, Kirov Street 76. Postal code 165300
Details: We met on match.com She seemed incredibly sincere. We exchanged lengthy emails almost daily for 2 months. I saw only minuscule red lights. Her poetic, sincere, romantic nature intoxicated me into trusting her. She shared stories of how she lost her 3 yr old brother at the age of 6. She felt bad as her mother (mum) still mourned the loss but she could not hardly remember him.
Her father mostly enjoyed wasting” time in the garden. She worked as an art teacher for teenagers. Only wanting to pass on the skills her mother taught her. She shared a story of how she saw one 13 year old student smoking a cigarette and was horrified. She complained of many drunken men in the streets and being very afraid. A couple weeks later the fire department appeared at her school and closed it for not meeting regulations. Her first time without work.
I suggested perhaps meeting in Europe six months down the road. She could not wait that long for us to be together. She had so fallen in love she could not wait a day. She tried to get a loan at the bank but was unsuccessful.
Finally her retired father was able to get a portion of the cost to fly to America. I told her I was in the middle of bankruptcy (true) and not able to help. I talked to the travel agency “Max Travel” (maxtravel-kotlas.narod.ru) about delaying her flight so I could raise funds. They said that was not possible because tickets had already been purchased (Red light). I did get them to delay the flight briefly. I finally flinched and sent money ($490) to her travel “agent” Elena Avdeeva via Western Union. Oksana only spoke of money indirectly, mostly focusing on love and romance.
I appeared at the airport for her arrival. She was not there. A call to one connecting flight airline at London Hethrow did not show her on the passenger list. Then came the frantic emails of a frightened, innocent young girl stranded without food or shelter in the big scary city of Moscow. She described successfully getting her visa at the Moscow embassy. Only to be stopped by customs while trying to board the plane. She needed to show evidence of having $3000 to travel with a tourist visa (true I now believe – this IS a requirement). Her following emails became more tattered and frenzied. I offered to get her a nights hotel stay and a train ticket back home. I told her to have a Western Union agent email me with instructions. She replied that the agent has no information to send me.
At that point I Google-ed “Russian Scams” and found this site www.russian-scam.org. After searching pictures I found her photo under a different name and city. She was good. And I foolish. Fortunately no more money was sent. I’m sure I blew apprehending her when I replied to her email with “I caught you”. I only hope my faith in the goodness of people is not severely damaged. I did follow up with a final ill-spirited message declaring that cruel, soul-less people belong in prison.

Alekseewa, Oksana – Velsk, Russia
Address: 20 Pushkina Street, Apt. 34, Velsk, Russia 165151
Details: After researching antiscam records, I noticed that the stories for “Oksana Alekseeva, Kotlas, Russia” and “Elena Awdeeva, Gryazovets, Russia” were almost exact, word-for-word, identical experiences to my own. If you are reading this now, I would take the time to read these stories. I will note the few exceptions in my story. We met on Zoosk.com. She contacted me first on 7/2/13 and asked that I only speak with her, to develop our relationship.
A few days later, I noticed that her personal profile had been removed from Zoosk. From the beginning, she has appeared to be the sweetest, most romantic woman, I have ever known. She continually speaks of her best, and only friend, “Elena”. This is why I believe with almost complete surety, that the woman mentioned above, are partners in this scam, or could even be the same woman using 2 identities.
She also mentioned that she was born in “Shenkursk” on 6/15/84, where her parents, “Aleksandr and Svetlana” live as “pensioners”. I am very embarrassed to say this, but she easily convinced me to send her money on 8/2/13, to cover cost of her passport and visa, 700 dollars through Western Union. I did ask the address of the bank where this Western Union was located. She replied, “VTB24 Bank, 33 Mira Street, Kotlas, Russia, 165300”.
She also explained at this time, that the cost of airline tickets would be around 1200 dollars. She said that, all documents could be processed and obtained more quickly through a professional travel agency in her city of Velsk. When I asked, she said the name of the agency was “I-V Tour, Pushkina Street 36/2, Velsk, Russia, website: ivtour.ucoz.ru , email: firstname.lastname@example.org “
She said that I could write to them about any details, but they only speak Russian, but could answer any inquiries in English. I thought this strange for a professional international tourist agency. But, the website did seem legit. I did not send the sum for the airline tickets, because I wanted to get to know her better. The emails continued, becoming more romantic, and more talk of starting our life together. I also spoke with her on the telephone several times, but she contacted me. She claimed that, she had no telephone or cell phone and could only call from a public phone. Which ironically, she said “did not receive incoming calls”.
Finally, on 12/18/13, I had convinced myself, that she was honest, and sent her the 1200 dollars for the airline tickets. She could now go to Moscow, to pickup her passport and visa, have visa interview and fly to the United States to meet me for the first time. She had sent me the flight information previously, to depart from Sheremetyevo Airport on 1/7/14, landing in Miami, US, on 1/8/14, with connecting flight to Albany, New York on the same day. This is where the previous stories I referred to, line up once again.
On the day she was to fly out, she was detained by Customs, and now required to have 2800 dollars in her possession, before they would let her leave. She sent me a copy of her passport and a Customs regulation (in Russian). All of the documents seemed official, stamped and dated. When I tried to send this amount through Western Union, the transfer was not approved. I now applaud the actions of Western Union, that I did not lose more money, than the 2000 dollars I had already spent.
Knowing that she would be waiting near the Western Union, I called the airport and found an agent, near the terminal where she was to depart from. I her paged several times, but no one came to the desk. I then gave a description of her from her photos to the agent. She had security personnel go to the Western Union. I waited for the obvious answer, there was no one there matching that description. My suspicions had been confirmed.
This was a red flag, and started to examine things more closely. I believe that this “Oksana Alekseewa of Velsk” is the same woman as “Oksana Alekseeva of Kotlas”, because my monies were wired to a bank in Kotlas. The numerous mentions of her friend, “Elena”, make me believe that, this is the same woman as “Elena Awdeeva of Gryazovets” because of the identical matching stories. After closer examination of her passport that she sent me, I noticed words missing from the document, place of birth stated “Velsk”, not Shenkursk” as she previously stated.
The signature was definitely a man’s beginning with an “M”, last name beginning with a “B” and ending with a “Y”. It was a very sloppy signature for a teacher at a school, and letters did not match up to her name. This is when I started searching the internet and found antiscam.org . I was shocked when I found the stories I mentioned.
I have always felt that crimes of the heart do not have an equal punishment in society. It is the worse crime that can be committed against another human being. I could have been scammed out of much more hard earned money, and I am glad that it ended here with your help. As for dear Oksana, she certainly deserves what is coming to her, and then some.

Alexeeva, Anastasya – Ukhta, Russia
Address: Ukhta, Russia
Details: Recently I have been contacted by a Russian Lady. We had a good conversation in the beginning even though sometimes she appeared not to react on Details in my Mailings.
In the end she first asked in a shy way for Money to get her visa, in the end she got more and more insisting. Anastasya contacted me on a Dating site (Zoosk) and sent me her mail address so we could communicate literately. She told me about her life and was a Kind Person. When I told something about me she didn’t really react on what I said. I kept the good vibes in the communications and as I was alerted about scamming I just went ahead.
She wanted to visit me in Germany as soon as possible. Her German seemed to be out of Google translator, but with a Little Imagination it was possible to understand most of it. Once I told her that I will be abroad for work. First she did not really react, then she finally accepted to visit me abroad.
I told her she will be Pais all her accommodation once she is there, but first in a gentle and shy way, then always more insisting she asked for Money for her flight. Even when I offered to send her a flight ticket she insisted on Money by wire.
I replied it is not possible as I am in a foreign Country and Western Union is only possible during my working time. As she understood that I will not ever send Money to an unknown she interrupted the contact in an offensive way. Please investigate the case and make further attempts impossible.

Anna contacted me via Match.com. She put me on her “Favorites” on Match.com I later noticed she had two profiles going at once.

She claims to have been “attach” by a man she knew (within about 10-12 days of knowing her). She has contacted a local travel agency in her hometown, yet they do not have a telephone? They quoted me a price just under $1500. There Company is called “Kolumb” and the main agent is Anna Konakova (Hummm?)

Like I said, she is very active in scamming smaller amounts because she thinks we will not care. Truth is, she is still a scammer.

Details: Told me she loves me and wants to fly to live with me. I sent her money for her Passport, Visa and Ticket. Then was asked for 2750 euros as this was required to show Customs on leaving Russia for a 90 day Visa calculated at 30 euros per day.. I could only manage 700 Pounds which gave her 800 euros. She promised to give back my money once arrived in UK on 12th June 2014.She even sign an agreement. However she borrowed 1200 euros from a Bank on the understanding she would return the money once she arrived in the UK. She was stopped by Customs inside the airport who refused to issue a Visa on the grounds of borrowing money and so she asked me to help her by sending the 1200 euros to get on the lane, but I refused this time. I understand she has my money in a secured box in Moscow Airport.

I vetted her out to the absolute best of my abilities, she’s truly a professional! She got over $ 5500 from me over a span of several months, now she conveniently had to have an appendectomy! The stories in her emails were the exact same as the prior’s statements! I can’t believe I was so deceived, I am in shock still!
I’m starting to get over my shock, she got over $5500 from me over a span of several months, the story is the same as the other person who was scammed. She even gave detailed flight info to me with the name of the local airport she’s be arriving at and times, I didn’t tell her the name of the airport, it would of have been researched to totally scam and receive me. Yes, it was the “I need $3000 more to get thru customs for travel money” and how she broke down and cried at the airport act. This person is truly a professional, must be part of a syndicate to be that good, complete with dated current passport.
