Name: Yulia Marchenko


Pr. Pobedi 70 ap 377 Kharkov, Ukraine

Other Comments:
I met Yulia on Elena’a Models. She is a professional dater who uses men from the internet for dinners and pay her way to what she wants to do. As it turns out, the lady I got an apartment with also has a dating service that Yulia was on before. She told me that Yulia was no longer on her site because she was engaged. She apparently also had a problem with one of the two men she had gone out with.
Yulia wanted me to come see her in Kharkov and said she would take holiday and wanted our meeting to be “romantic”. She is very beautiful and I am older so I sent pictures of myself that showed my age and how I really look, rather than a picture that would make me better than I am. She told me that I was attractive.
I noticed that she had sent me a statement that was exact duplicate one of her letters and I mentioned to her. She denied it and I thought that she might be embarrassed about not having a good written command of English, so I let it pass. But then I became worried because she would almost never answer her phone. This concerned me because I did not want to travel to Kharkov just to have her not answer her phone. She wrote me that we should not miss a chance to meet because she did not answer her phone, claiming it is hard to find in the bottom of her purse. After that she started answering her phone.
Our first date was anything but romantic and she backed out of everything she said in her letters about taking holiday, saying “meeting someone in person is different than letters and pictures.” I should have walked right there but I thought I would see if she was just feeling nervous. We went out Wednesday and Thursday with no change in mood. On Friday stated she had to work late but called me on Saturday night we were to go to the River to swim. I thought perhaps things were going to change, but I was wrong. The river changed to a restaurant with a pool 30 minutes before we were to leave. We picked up a friend of hers who was with another American. They had met at a dating service. The other American ended up leaving early because he felt ill, while his date Anna stayed and hooked up with a young Ukraine guy after the American paid for her dinner and taxi fare.
I then learned why Yulia did not answer her phone in the beginning, she has two phones. One number she gave me, and others like me no doubt, and the other for her personal uses.
Nothing changed but the taxi fare home. I noticed that when she dropped me off I paid about $3 more even (25 gr) in Taxi Fare though we had two stops less. Then I realized when I was dropped off she gave the same address to the taxi as her girl friend did when she left in another taxi with the young Ukrainian guys. Stay away from Yulia unless you just want to be used to pay restaurant, disco, wine and taxi bills while they go home with their Ukraine boys.

Anon US, please listen to the excellent advice from anon UAE.
If she insists she must book the apartment then there would be a red flag.

Since you both are discussing very useful points, replace the anonymous with an alphanumeric alias, like your favorite team to win the world cup?

To Anon U.S, The gentleman that is currently living in the U.A.E has said he was very fortunate and admitted how uninformed he was before traveling to the east and meeting his wonderful wife.He is correct in this statement that he got lucky.The truly only thing I see as being a problem with your trip is the Three Hour Taxi ride from the airport to your new friends Village.I honestly would not do this.I would arrange accommodation in the City that you are Flying to in Belarus and meet her there,If you get on well with each other then go to the Village.
Honestly Mate it will be a culture shock to you to see how these people live in a Village,so it would be a shame to be stuck in a different country three hours from a major city and not able to speak the language if things did not work out.So make it very easy on yourself and on her to start with and just spend some time in a major city and then move on from there.
Go with an open mind and take all the skam stuff for what it is.You have to understand that in Russia and other eastern countries they have T.V shows on how many Eastern Woman have been lost around the world and also skammed,so it is on both sides.
I visited Yulia Marchenko last year and I still dont believe that she was a skammer it was just the way she was taking care of herself,they want to be safe also when Man is visiting.I was not happy with what happened there with Yulia but I went with many expectations and it was a Culture shock to me and I was uninformed,I could not imagine going through this and also being stuck in a Village.
So tell her honestly that this is your first trip like this and would feel more comfortable to see her first in the city and see if you are comfortable with each other. 'I would not go to the Village for the first meeting'.

Best of luck

Anon US, If you are considering visiting Belarus, 64 Stang has a good suggestion, look for temporary apartments in Minsk itself. Visit your local travel agent and discuss. As 64 says, why risk getting stuck in a place where it is difficult to find people who can speak your language, and 3 hour drive away from nearest big city?

I once was traveling in a remote area of Quebec city, where no-one understood English, at least I could communicate with some gestures, and writing horrible French, but Belarus does not even use Latin script, my experience under similar conditions would have been horrible there!

Watch out for translation scammers who employ these girls to milk victims for rides, food, residence etc. Read this full thread http://www.delphifa..p=1#161927

I must say, I wouldn't call this person a scammer. She is a gold digger. That is nothing different than what men put up with women here in America. The difference is that one travel halfway across the world to meet a gold digger.

At least you 'ACTUALLY' met the woman. That is huge! Now if you're ugly, then you're ugly. If you're boring, then your boring, but if you have MONEY, then any GOLD DIGGER would find you attractive until your money is Gone.

Scammers from Russia or Ukraine sit back on the computer 'posing' as a beautiful girl yet they are some Street Low life with access to the internet...trying to deceive you for your money. That's a scam!

But to actually meet the real person is HUGE! You can meet a girl 5 miles from you and expect you pay for everything and end the night going home with another man.

I'm sorry you had to pay for everything and the girls left you at the end of the night. Typical gold digger. But I do ADMIRE your story on here, but I found this posting fromna google search that I was cocern about after meeting this person on ''

Thank you for letting more this person is a Gold Digger!

Well it seems that the site got attacked and there has been a lot of lost info on some of these scammers, When there is a website that is dedicated to the removal of Scammers and Gold Diggers around the world I am sure it will get attacked ever once and a while. I think that this website serves a wonderful perpose and is of great help to those that are looking and going or flying overseas just to meet with a woman. My advice to those that are going to Eastern Europe to be very careful, I have done it two times and the last time I got my azz handed to me. I look back on my experience and I thank god that I am still here and still around to tell any of you guys to do your home work. And even then keep a solid back up plan in place.
Let it be known that most of these woman are now working for scamming agencies. It has become a common practice for the woman to work for an operation that will have many girls working men online, It is no different than a Pimp and his whores, honest to God. When you visit these woman you are not the only man that is with them, both the woman I visited had other men meet them while I was there, to detail how I knew would take up to much time. They are only proffesional daters/scammers and Gold Diggers who are milking you for all you can give. There are some agencies that front woman just to get you to there Cities so you can pay for the Agencies Apartments that they also own.
Think about it guys!!!!!, you fly half way around the world, most of the time the woman want to go on a vacation with you to Turkey, Egypt, Croatia or somewhere else, Would you do this with a woman you had never meet in person in your home country, Seriously would you pay Thousands to take a woman you never knew to a different Country on your first date, Its like meeting someone at Starbucks and the first date you fly to fucking Paris!!!, 'ITS MADNESS'. These woman are riding your wallets untill there is no more money left.
Look at the pictures they send you, look at where they are from, would you date a woman form your own country that lived in something that looked like a ghetto.
I can assure you that if you are thinking about the love of you life being from Eastern Europe think again, Its cheaper to get a hooker and get laid at home than it is to fly half way around the world and risk your money, your heart and your satinty.
These woman have not one thing on there mind other than money. Even the nicest most sincere Eastern Euro Woman woman which I have meet here in America have dollars on there Minds and it does not feel comfortable.

Heres a perfect example, I was talking to a woman on skype that I found on Elenas Models, here name was Elena Lamana and she was married to an Australian, she had this guy pay for trips all over the world. She left him apparently because he was gay???. She was telling me this telling me how terrible everything was and how she just moved back to Vinnitsa in the Ukraine and start all over again. Now Elena is a stunning little lady, the Aussy pays for everything, he is from a wealthy family, now Elena is back in the Ukraine after leaving the Aussy, now she has her own online heath website and brought herself a nice big remodeled apartment. Elena and I got in an argument oneday because I started to question her about how she had been handling some aspects of her life and where she got the money to pay for an apartment and website and still not have a job???. She cut all communication of, interesting huh!!.
I would put my money on the fact that she worked the poor Aussy for all he was worth, thing is she is On Elenas Models and she says she has found someone....'YET', She is on Ma_Dame and her profile is current and active. Maybe no Scammer, Gold Digger, 'YES'.

Another example is Ludmila Kononenko, Engaged to an American for three years, says she was engaged to a Ukrainian Man. Says she paid for her apartment, her now ex_fiancee paid for her apartment and some of her renovations. He also paid for many trips overseas, yet she says she paid for them. Ludmila Kononenko was on Elenas Models and said she had found her man in me. Yet her profile was still active on Ma_Dame and also on UkrainianBrides under Ludmiyla Kravchenko.
She said she was apparently getting a passport and work on a Cruize Ship in America, She Did not get work on a Cruize Ship let alone get a passport for America. Scammer....'YES', Gold Digger.....'NO', Why no on the Gold Digger???, She is a proffesional Scammer, works with other people and works many men at the same time and has multiple profiles on many other websites. AND BY GOD DOES SHE LIE.

Also most of the time they will screw something up and make a mistake that a normal person would not do if they where legit. I remember oneday Luda swimming in the Black Sea in Odessa and I followed her in. She gestured for me to swim out further so I did, I swam for a little and turned around and she was back at her sun chair looking at her phone. About an hour later she had to go to the bathroom and so I checked her phone, pressed redial and a Man answered, there are so many little mistakes Luda did that all added up to a Scam going on.
I would put money on the fact that Ludmila is still scamming or working some poor fella, I would say without a doubt that when she was engaged she was still seeing other Men also.

Best of luck guys and all the Best, My advice, Get a Hooker, Bang her Brains out and go home with a few thousand dollars more in your back pocket, and trust me a good Hooker is worth her weight in gold ;). I spent 20 grand over two years traveling back and forth from the Ukraine and ended up 20 grand poorer. The stories you read online are real and the success stories are few and far between. Do the math, figure out the odds, you will find better bets in Vegas. CHEERS

Data Loss on DelphiFAQ

I am sorry to announce that last Friday, 23rd of September 11

The database has been restored, but the most recent backup

My apologies to the community for this.

I have been in contact with Peter in regards to this matter and as I said to Peter in a personal email to him and I qoute.....'When you are operating a website that is posting and trying to stop scammers and Gold Diggers on a Global Scale you have to expect this sort of thing to happen (Virus attack) as you are having a direct effect on these peoples only form of income, you take these people out and you have cut of there income'.

So to me it has been of no surprize what so ever that this site and many others over time will get attacked, and based on the economy and what is happening in Eastern Europe and more so Russia and the Ukraine I would expect this problem to get worse from here on out and I would advise against any relations with woman from this part of the world as your chances of being scammed are only going to go up from here on out.

Take note guys of what happened to this website, if they have the ability to do this then they are very proffesional at what they do and can cause a great amount of problems.

Ihad someone try to attack my computer from the Ukraine this year also, I received an email from someone saying hello via email and it was from the ukraine yet it was an unknown address to me, I did not open it, first I tried to send an email back to the person who had sent it to me and it failed, so I passed it on to a friend who knows how to deal with these things and he said it was a virus that would have taken my computer out. They will try to get you at all means possible.

Yes, stay away from Ludmila Kononenko/Kumiyla Kravchenko, she is 100% scammer.
Save yourself the pain and emotional turmoil and stay away from her, she has hurt many many men, she has her apartment paid for by other Man, trips over seas paid for by other Men, Apartment renovations have been paid for by other Men. She is a heartless professional Gold Digger/Scammer and is no good.
She lied to me about everything in her life and her relationships, she has a Ukrainian Boy friend and together they scam Men for Thousands of Dollars......Do not be fooled or you will be played for the fool.
Her sister Oxsana who is Married to an American is Lier also, She lied to me also about Ludmila .
Ludmila/Luda has not one intention of coming to a foreign country to be with her man, she is very happy in the Ukraine.
Best of luck with your search for a foreign woman, just stay as far away from this as possible.

Listen up guys... if you have to wonder why some young sexy babe thousands of miles away can't find a partner in their part of the world ? The clear answer emerges... cash, dollars, euros, rupees... or whatever you wanna call it, the motivating answer is simple = SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM !

There's no sexy babe on the other end ! More than likely some young dude with balls is being pimped by a greedy maestro, who has knife at his throat should he try anything else. And he's not alone. The cafe is crowded with lowlife scammers working for a 'maestro' who buys the computer time and hires them to scam you under the pretense of being a woman seeking romance. To these immortal thieves, it is just a business. And more often than not pictures of sexy PORN models are cleverly used to lure you into their web of deceit and deception. The 'maestro' gets a 60 percent cut and reserves another 20 percent to pay off law enforcement officials who rarely come around. That still puts plenty of cash in the scammer's pocket. The typical scammer spends up to 12 hours a day, seven days a week, huddled over one of many computers, pretending to be a sexy woman working his scams.

Don't take it personally that they're trying to scam you... just move on, brush off the dirt and learn from experiences. If not, the con artist wins because they leave a mark on you that YOU choose not to handle, and the next quality love of your life may have to pay the price for you not dealing with it.

Hey guys if any of you are dating this girl stay away. This is Ludmila Kononenko and she also goes under the name of Ludmiyla Kravchenko. This woman is a major gold digger and is the reason behind my above post. I am going to put up a whole scammer gold digger profile on her tonight as Men do need to be warned about her.
Saddly Luda has taken thousands from men over the years and can not be trusted. When I visited her over a year ago all she did was lie about everything. She has no respect for men period. The pictures of her on this website are taken of her about four years ago as she looks completely different today. Take care and be very very careful around her.
