Dating scam from Kazan, Russia - Part 1

I would like to warn fellow males from a scam artist, located in Russia.

Click to see more..
I had a profile posted on an American dating web site and a female from my area answered me. Her letter was a few lines long, in good English and she seemed honest and cute, so I replied.

The letter said she had a read-only trial account and would not be able to receive messages, so she included a yahoo email address. She asked me to write to this yahoo email address. I did this and a few days later her trial account was gone, she explained that she deleted it because she found me. (that is what she answered, when I asked her about it)

This girl claimed to live in Kazan, Tartastan, 26 years old and called herself Barbi.
There was something suspicious about her letters, in particular I always had the
impression that she did not really read mine every time. Sometimes she wrote
personal, matching replies, then sometimes not. her photos of which she sent
about 25 so far, had number like 5.jpg, 6.jpg, 35.jpg etc.

Yesterday I did a query for some phrases of some of her emails and found them
posted on 2 other web sites. Apparently she wrote identical letters to other guys
using different names and different pictures. She or he asked those guys for money,
supposedly for tickets or visa paperwork. I guess I am lucky that she never asked
me for any money. However, I felt fooled when I saw "my" emails had also been
sent in parts to other guys.

For that reason I will post her here letters. I know that parts of these letters
have been posted on 2 other sites, but not all.
I include the full headers in the first email. The sender comes from a russian
dial-up but in another email I sent her a URL to one of my web sites and apparantly
"she" uses some sort of satellite DSL for the downstream, the IP number was
84.xx (to be filled in later).

I know that IRYNA NOKELAYNEN from ODESSA is a Ukrainian translation/English classes scammer, but there are plenty of real (and cute) Russian women out there (tho most Russian scammers are men). Trust me, I've been to Russia twice in the last 12 months, all the girls I met on the net, one is now my fiancée (still waiting for her residency).

But it pays to learn a few of the many Russian dating scam signs:

- 'girl' writes to you first on a dating site (or an email appears out of nowhere in your mailbox). Real Russian girls would hardly be that forward. Plus if they're looking for a partner, they generally prefer him to be Russian and live in Russia.
- girl's much too young for you (or too good to be true/looks like a model/porno star) + conveniently childless.
- photos are too revealing (can't be a respectable girl)
- most of the pictures old and a little bit faded. Most scam photos have a curiously grainy quality that soon becomes easy to recognise. A serious girl would go to a professional and have a photo set done, and/or borrow a digicam. Russian girls aren't that poor anymore.
- very long rambling, ecstatic form letters with a strange format, punctation, layout. (world's worst Babelfish copy)
- writes everyday in English (how does she have time if she's working? + most Russians can't speak a word of English)
- doesn't answer direct questions (sometimes factual mistakes in the letter)
- falls 'in love' very quickly. Don't let your ego or loneliness pull the wool over your eyes. You could be an axe murderer for all she knows.
- wants money for a 'visa' and/or maybe tickets, even though she needs a personal letter of invitation from you, a copy of your passport, a proof of your residence in your home country, a completed sponsor's application form (also from you)....not including the documents that she has to fill in herself. All of these she has to drop off at your national embassy in Moscow WITH PREPAID TICKETS and wait 10 working days. Without these documents, it's impossible for 'her' to get a Schengen visa. USA is almost as complicated. Why should it be so easy for a gorgeous sexy girl to just jump on a plane and come and visit you? Get real.
- uses a proxy server to hide his/her location, or a SOCKS server / GPRS Internet. if you can't trace 'her' IP, it's 100% scam.

above all, don't send money unless you've met her or you're 100% sure

Be patient and good luck!

For those unfamiliar with these:

1) Headers are needed for IP trace

2) Procedures for listing Headers are posted in this site for some e-mails. e.g. gmail, outlook, yahoo, and hotmail
2a) If you are using Outlook Web Access, right-click on an empty spot in your message, and select View Source. Copy and Paste to a Wordpad file.

3) This site has many suggestions on Wordpad file maintenance
3a) If you are planning to post to a thread here, consider the Wordpad file name ending for your file 4 digits (padding a leading zero as needed) of the thread number, the last character(s) some sequence like a, b, or 01, 02, indicating your order of posting. (E.g. my file name for this post ends with 0976 followed by a character indicating order of my posts)
3b) If you starting a new thread, give it a temporary name, until your thread is visible to other users. (It's going to take a while). Open your new thread, rename your Wordpad file per above.

4) When posting about a suspect, do not include pictures, or personally identifiable info. Be general, and most veterans here have sharp eyes for sensing a scam in progress and respond. This avoids unwisely harming an innocent person, while keeping your options open.

5) If you find your google search hits the suspect as a scammer, you are now ready to post your updates here.
5a) If your search, and your enqueries here return negative, wait until you receive the money letter. Consider yourself the first victim / would-be victim. Clean out your Wordpad file, copy, paste, post

6) A generous usage of expletives does not add to the search efforts for new users on scammers

7) Consider using scammer in a narrow sense of the word (= money-letter senders(s))

8) It's not useful to fire a gender-based attack on the scammer. Even it is a she, may not even be same as the picture you got. It could be a he, and now too late for the poster to reverse the gender attack. It could actually be an 'it', a computer. It could be a they, an organized gang. Consider using ''she'' ''her'' etc, with surrounding quotes, to clarify your intended target as the scammer, (not necessarily the one on your photos)

9) Finally, target acquisition for your adjectives, invectives, etc. is one thing; Aiming accurately is an altogether different process.

10) Unfortunately, some scammers seem to know this: Not everyone can be the bird, flying high above a full parking lot, and knowing exactly which car is fresh from a wash!

My testimony:
In the beginning knowing that i didn't trusted the emails, because this was the second time i received russian emails. But i was interested in the pictures and played my part all along. All though i ask for her phone number to call her. I didn't receive any answer on my questions. I waited until the money part started, i asked again for 'them' phone number to call her but nothing happend. After the last letter it stop sending letters.
'Some more precautions: According a Russian photographer, there are companies in the West that run scam agencies, and make professional shootings in Russia. Models are invited to pose, with 3-5 sets of pictures and videos of each girl done. They use professional make-up and changes of clothing, so pictures look different'

How are you my love?

As I wake by your side,
My feelings for you I can not hide,
I touch your face in the morning light,
Being with you just feels so right

You make me feel like I'm a queen,
Like being inside an awesome dream,
Although this is real, that I know,
As the love that surrounds us continues to grow

I think of what the future holds...
Marriage, children, us growing old,
And as I lay, with you dear,
I'm just so glad you're mine, you're here.

My dearest Sweet!
I decided to greet you this way today, do you like
it? I think about you every single
day, my Sweet. Every minute, every minute I think about you only, about
the things you told me. I wait for your warm messages all the time
Sweet, I wanted to tell you about one thing and thought pretty a lot
about the way to do it, my Sweet. I realized that I canOt find a place
for myself without your letters. I never felt better before! Your
e-mails are so important for me, they are a part of my life, they are
a source of pleasure in my life, I want to tell you that your
occurrence in my life, Sweet, is the best that has happened to me, your
messages make me feel a great happiness and pleasure, Sweet. I just
want you to know that I am really honest with you, Sweet, and try to
express everything I feel in my heart, Sweet. Also I realized the fact
that I thought about my feelings to you, my Sweet, I have come to
conclusion that we were created for each other, my Sweet. Please hear
me out, ok? The point is that some time ago I realized that mood and
all that I do during the day depends on your letters. I try to
explain A when I receive your letter, it seems to me that I fly up to
the sky I have a burning desire to live!! You know, my life is not
very interesting, from work - to home, from home to work, and again,
and again, day by dayABut now when you appeared in my life, you become
an inseparable part of it. Do you remember, I told you once my
sorrowful love story? So after it I was afraid to fall in love.
Moreover, I have never met a person I could fall in love with, you
know, I told you about Russian men. Now I am not afraid. I it seems to
me I did it when I met you, my dear Sweet!! Now I tell you with
certainty that I can not be without you anymore, my Sweet. Of course I
thought about your possible answer. What will you say on it? Does it
mean anything for you? But it will happen anyway, so I'd like to tell
you about it now. I just wanted to let you know that I fallen in love
with you honey! I love you my dearest Sweet! My Sweet, it happened so
quickly and suddenly, I didn't expect it, my darling, it's so sensual
for me, my Sweet, I canOt be without you Sweet. I LOVE YOU, DARLING! I
am sorry for being so expressive, but I feel like I want to scream at
the top of my voice about it, about how much I love you and care about
you!! My lovely Sweet, of course I could only guess about your answer,
but still, I noticed that you take an interest in me too, and I'm sure
that I'm not mistaken!! I feel it with my heart and it just can not
tell a lie! I do not hesitate any more I'm eager to spend the rest of
my life with you!! And it will be the best years in my life, because
you are the one for me. I am sure we will be the happiest pair in the
whole world!! I truly believe in it with all my heart and I know that
when you believe in something very strong, it will happen one day!! So
I hope that we will be together one day my Sweet!! My darling, my dear
man, my sweet dream, my fairy-tale, in what way else I must name you
to express you my feelings!! So I told you everything about my love to
you, and of course I'd like to know what you think about all this, my
Sweet!! Also, my dear Sweet, I want to ask you a very important question
for me, I think that it will be fairly from my side, my darling. Do
you have or do you write to another woman, my Sweet? It's so important
to me my Sweet, I hope that you will understand me, because I love you
and I don't want you, Sweet, to correspond with another women. I want
to say to you that I don't write any man except you, my Sweet. I don't
want another man, because I love you, Sweet! But moreover I don't want
another woman to steal you from me, my love Sweet!! I say this to you
very seriously, my Sweet! It will be so pity for me if you have or
write another woman, my dear Sweet, and deceive me in our relationship,
please, tell me, Sweet, do you write to another women? We must trust
each other, ok my darling? Of course if God listen to me and we are
together, I will be forced to leave my job, relatives, friends and the
whole former life. Of course, it is not so good, but my love to you is
much more important for me than my job, believe me!! All my warm
kisses, Warm hugs, Your lady and beloved woman, Tatyana.

soul. I trust you like I have never trusted anyone before I really
mean this and I can't explain this. I guess it is some kind of natural
thing when you finally find that perfect partner. These are wonderful
feelings! My sunshine, I know that we miss each other greatly and I
know it must be as hard for you as it is for me. I miss you...I love
you very much. I fall deeper in love with you each day... Have I told
you lately of how proud I am of you? How wonderful it is to have such
a wonderful and unique man love me. You ARE my sunshine!!!!! YOU ARE
tired of my words to you, I believe I should always tell you sweet
thins and call you sweet names. I will always tell you how wonderful
you are, always..... Honey, I have an anecdote for you again-) A girl
comes home from school excited and tells her mom, 'I know my alphabet
better than anyone else in my class! Is this because I'm blond?'. Her
mom replies, 'yes'. She comes home the next day after school and
exclaims 'I know my numbers from one to ten better than anyone in my
class! Is this because I'm a blond?'. Her mom replies again, ' Yes'.
The girl comes home the next day and says 'I have the biggest breasts
in my class! Is this because I'm blond?'. Her mom explains, 'No, it's
because you're 16 years old!'!!!!!!! OK, By the way I already have
found transport agency which will be engaged in registration of my
passport for travel abroad! Also I should issue the visa! Please write
to me the full home address! You and I are unique people and we should
live in a unique place together. Don't you think so?

Your best friend and lover forever...

Hello :)

I've become interested about dating scam after I saw a report on local tv. Something was resembling me situation very much, I've checked my memories and it seems like I personally know one scammer and whole their business. So I seeked internet, found fraudwatchers, and from link to link, come to this topic :)

So I have some information about dating scammers life 'behind the scenes'. If anyone interested, how they act, I can tell you some :)

p.s. Location identification of this site is totally incorrect. There is no internet in 'Samtredia, GE'. So if you're there and want to use Internet, you should use satelite link, which may give you russian/ukrainian/turksh IP, but not georgian one :)

Ok :) here it is.

Nearly 10 years ago, I was working in a computer company, average company, doing various things, serving customers, etc. etc. Once, A girl (about 20) and her mother (about 45 yrs) come to us, and ordered a computer. You may think - usuall customer. I also thought so, but they also asked us, to install various translation software, mainly russian<>english (because no georgian<>english existed at that time), and asked also to write modern and classical english poetry in electronic format into their computer (as you may know, here we have no laws against software piracy, so everyone is using pirated software, so it was free service for them). A bit strange request, but I did it without any question, generally, everyone in our country follows the principle 'less questions asked - longer life you have'. OK. About 4 monthes passed, we saw them again - purchased web camera (since webcameras were quite expensive that time -remember, it's 1997, we were offering 'buy webcamera and get free technican to install it for you at your home for no extra cost') so I went with them. When I came to their house, I was amazed by number of emails in her inbox (about 300 persons, each one had separate folder), and also, by number of books for english sentences and grammar and so on. I said 'you work as freelance translator?' 'No, I just like to get new friends from overseas and contact with them'. OK, I've installed webcamera, tested it, and back to office - almost forget this case. After about 2 years, I saw them again, mother and daughter, coming crying and holding their computer - HDD has failed. they've asked to restore some data from it, so, they've left computer at our office, and I begin analysis (remeber, it's about 2000 year, no MHDD or easy recovery software yet available, TIRAMITSU takes the lead). They asked for certain excel and word files to be recovered. I recovered almost 80% of them. One of excel files was really interesting, it contained data in format like:

name: email: country: date started: date ended: funds received: and some 'technical' data, like height, eye color, age, etc.

there were about 60 entries in that file, as I remember, and funds were ranging from $50 to $2000 per entry

I thought, that 'maybe girl is practicing in excell, or this is maybe her university work, why should I care' ?

Word files were less interesting, very absurd (by my thoughts) romance letter-like texts. Ok, everything restored, they get PC back and new HDD. I left that company in short time afterwards. So I have no idea what's they doing now or where are.

I'd totally forgot these things, untill I saw a report on TV, than I realised, what I saw in reality. So, to help you, I decided to fire this post, and also wrote some things about scammer girls from Republic of Georgia (Country, not US state).

Things you should consider as warning sign, when chatting with georgian girl:

1. There are very few photo studios capable of doing so called 'model' shots. And their price is quite high, about $200-500 per set (price may be good in US, but here, average salary is about $110, consider this). So if you get professional-quality girl photos - warning bell should ring.

2. Silicone implants also are very uncommon, and in general, georgian girls have smaller breasts and wider hips (look at Jlo's body, nearly same dimensions, but with smaller head and bigger nose). Also, there are very few georgians that are natural blond, they all live in high mountain villages, and it's very unlikely that they'll chat with you due to absence of internet there. So if you're getting a photo of high, busty, blondie girl - it's a scam, forget her.

3. Nudity. ALMOST NO GEORGIAN GIRL WILL POSE NUDE IN FRONT OF A CAMERA. This is also rule to consider. You maybe don't believe, but local edition of playboy, doesn't includes photos of nude local girls, only foreign ones. Also we don't have local porn. This doesn't means locals doesn't love sex :D just it's considered as biggest sin, to record activity. So, if you got a naked photo, it is borrowed from some website or underground porno magasines.

4. 'charges' for visa/etc. As 1st post here mentions, russian girl can't get tourist visa, and same is with georgian. So if she asks you for money - forget her

5. Phone numbers. All georgian numbers begin with 995 and then two digts - area code beware of numbers in range from 40 to 48 after area code, for example 995 99 44 xx xx, these are forwarder or pay-per-minute numbers.

6. If you ever decided to come here and have some time with your passion, avoid going to her hotel/house at any costs. Because she'll be propably virgin (most girls of age 25 are still virgins here, consider this also as a fact), and according to some national traditions (none remembers them generally, but in your case they may push you), who breaks her virginity - is her husband, so you may see crowd of her relatives, seeking for revenge (money) shorlty afterwards. So take her to your hotel. And try not to save on hotel, stay at hillton or marriot.

If I'll remember anything else, I'll wrote here again :)

Was not my request, but would have. Thanks for the insight.

All your points well taken and logged for future reference.

As for the locator, sometimes it is right on the money and others not. But usually for a reason. As you say, that location must use sat connection, perhaps where you are, goes through Samtredia, thus showing this as your location. Perhaps not.

At any rate, please take note, that the regulars here and other sites know that not all from dating sites are scammers or from a certain part of the world.

For your comfort, here is what we will ask for when someone posts a photo or a letter. As that alone does not show scam, unless photos or letters (word for word) known to be used by scammers.


Name, first and last.
Email address
Phone, if available
First email w/header
Money letter w/header
Photos w/name listed
Site met

Any other info you feel relevant.

This info will be picked up by the web for future searches.


Thanks again for the post. Appreciated by all.

good hunting...........drod

Ok, short comment about location thing. Now it shows: It seems that you are
from Gori, GE (While I'm in Tbilisi, capital).Of course, Gori DO have internet connection, but not with my ISP :). I asked my ISP support, and they told me, that in past, there were plans to cover all cities, and they have own IP range, so according segments were alocated. But plans changed, and these segments never used in other cities. So now these IP's just being used by ADSL users.

And about dating scammers, I don't think that I'll post any pics/whatsoever, because I'm not dating on internet, too old, married and with childrens :). Just if in case someone gets interested about existence of real georgian girl, he can ask me, and I can give my suggestio according to pic, and also can help in veryfing of existence of address. also, you can use this site lists all citizens elegible for voting. So it may also help. Just type in name/surname in search...
