Same Russian Scammers
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.

Hadjarov, Alexander (Alex) (on Yahoo Messenger) aka Petrov, Alexander (Alex) (on ICQ) – Kirov, Russia
Yahoo Messenger ID: alexandr_hadjarov
ICQ Number: 233-226-531
ICQ Nickname: alex8310
Details: Was contacted on gay.ru. Gave a sad story how his parents where alcoholics in the Ukraine and he left them both and went to Russia when he was still a teenager (Claims he is 22 now.) Shows picture claiming he is at work — clamined he had the same profession as myself. Then in later correspondence after noticing a wedding ring on his finger in a picture, when questioned on this he said oh yes he is married but she lives in another part of the city with a different guy. Married her for a job. Now claims he has no job, and when asked about his continued inquiries about wanting to come to the U.S., what his wife would think “says I asked her and she is ok with it”.
Continued to put off saying I would provide money for plane tickets/visa. Then received another sad story email about health problems. Has chronic ear problems, but no money to go to the hospital. Needed this right away. Did not respond. Now received an instant message on Yahoo Messenger addressed to “Oleg” about money problems and can he help (sent it to the wrong person by accident). Then I got another sad story about money problems and that he has to sell his computer to pay for bills, requesting help and a possible loan.
Typical tickets & visa scam. When that does not work, tries any other sad story to get you to send him money. Stories do not add up or match.

Hramzovacv, Asya – Belorechensk, Russia
Details: The story is simple. I met her (Asya Hramzova) on Anastasia date website (www.anastasiadate.com). We exchanged over 15 letters and spent a lot of time on chat (almost everyday) before I decided to go to see her. She was charming, understanding…until I go there. I realized that it wasn`t the same person. In a week, I saw her 3 times for a total of 10 hours. While we meet, she asked me the same questions that she asked me in her letters and by chat. When I asked her for her personal details, she gave me an email address but she didn`t reply to my email and my “interpreter” told me that she was refusing to communicate with me with another way (skype, ooVoo, email,…) than the chat of the website. According to the interpreter, Asya was not used to use email…?! I felt suspicious and when I came back home, I have created a “fake” profile with the face a very handsome man (about 35 and apologizes to him) found on Internet and I waited to see if she would send to “him” (my fake profile) an invitation to chat. Within 2 days, she sent an invitation to chat and in less than 20 minutes (15,99$ for 20 minutes of chat), I had the proof that she was cheating on me. She called him “handsome”, she told him “I like you very much” even if she didn`t know him 5 minutes earlier…when I asked her: “I`m new on the website, did you find someone interesting…She replied “Not really”…and a lot more questions like that…. I was back home for only for 5 days…and she was already ready to find “the man of her dreams”.
Obviously, she wasn`t the person who sent me the letters and she was just a “toy” used by the Russian agency to attract western men. Letters, chat, translation fees, interpreter,…costs a lot but I still believing that some Russian women are true and really want to find a husband.
Did you report the scam to the agency: YES
What was the agency response: They delete my profile and they answered me: “We can`t do anything for you…”
