First reported: Bob
Oloukova Anna – St. Petersburg, Russia
Address: Tipanova St. #29, Apt #198, 196233, Russia
Details: I would like to report a “visa-passport” scammer from Russia who, most likely, is not who she represents herself to be. “She” sent me an “unsolicited” email letter via my Yahoo account just before Christmas as if she knew me. I have actually played along with this party….AND I blatantly informed this individual that I was “happily married” on several occasions which seemed to have little impact or effect on “her.” I also requested to know her full name: she replied “Anna Zimenkova”. But now with her most recent letter of today…she tells me her full name is: Anna Oloukova? So, obviously anyone would be suspicious. But I became suspicious long before today. I have received several emails since then, but deleted all of them except this one as I felt that this needed to be reported to proper authorities. I’m still not really sure whether this “report” will do anything to thwart others who may be fall victim to this type of Russian scam?? This letter is but one example of several over the past couple of weeks in which “she” expressed some “love” for me…but I don’t even know this woman! But I have researched and read extensively about these Russian “rings” of scammers who are so “prolific” operating not only within the Russian Federation, Ukraine, etc. but just about anywhere in the world given the internet technology available today. Most likely, given the history of Russian Federation dating scams…its probably a “man” who is writing these corny letters….intentionally not paying attention to proper English syntax and grammar hoping to convey the “woman’s” naiveté or vulnerability…etc. As one can see from the letter, “she” initially told me that she has the necessary funds to pay her visa fees and cost of passport. She does not have enough funds to adequately pay for all the fees associated with processing her visa and passport, air tickets, etc. And, although I could not find the alleged travel agency “Avanti” listed anywhere.. I still believe it to be a “fake” or “phony” agency set up specifically to defraud the unsuspecting.

Osipova, Svetlana – Saratov, Russia
Address: Navashina 28-39, Saratov, Saratov Region, Russia
Phone: +7 937 637-31-13
Details: I met this girl from an online dating website, Elena’s Models, and flew over to Saratov to meet up with her from San Francisco. I initially was about to book a hotel for myself online, but she insisted that she could get a cheaper place for me in Saratov as she had connections. I intended to stay for 8 days. She said all up the apartment she got for me would cost 500 USDs, when I got there she asked for what was the equivalent of about 930 USDs, telling me the price went up due to the unpredictable economy (Russia had troops in Crimea at the time). The first mistake I made. My visit to see her was going fine before my last night there, we ordered some food and when I went to answer the door, two Russian thugs were at the door. Sevtlana started screaming, accusing me of raping her over the last several days. She took all the cash I had on me, and took my bank card and maxed out the withdrawal limit. All in all, she exhorted me out of roughly 10 000 USDs. Before she left hat night she told me that if I reported this to the police, she would counter claimed that I raped her and get the men to give her bruises showing otherwise. I was stuck in a dodgy, lawless country, and feared being locked up for 10 years in a Russian prison if I didn’t give in. Please guys be careful of this girl. She will write all these letters to you, saying she’s looking for a husband and wants nothing more than to be a house wife and have children. That’s a bunch of lies, she is setting you up to be emotionally invested in her, so she can extort money off you. Guys, be very wary of her! She takes scamming to a whole new level. Don’t make the same mistake me and some other guy made.
