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).

These are the internet cafe locations in Cheboksary. I'm still looking for the ones in Kazan. The chamber of commerce had these. Does anyone know how to get an email from any of these places in order to obtain the IP so that it can be compared to the IP of a woman who claims to be writing from there. I would think that having that might be helpful to either support her claim or to doubt her. Also, would the 'Bat' possibly be used in an internet cafe environment? I mean, when you think about it, why should the cafe care if the scammers are lining up there. Just more business for them, I would think. They could always claim to have no knowledge of the scams. Curiously I'm observing that these are claiming 'no weekends.' This doesn't make a lot of sense to me either. Maybe there are more cafe sites that just were not listed?! MWN

P.S. I suppose I could try to call them all and ask for an email from them, but then, what's the real chance that any of them are going to have someone there that can speak english?

I am just guessing her last name is Pershutkina. I have only her first name: Anastasiya, and she says she is from Samara.

She uses brandnew picture, to goog to be true, but quite convincing..that's why i don't want to post the pics here yet..
She hasn't wrote me for 3 days now, so i guess she feels that i am not that naive (anymore).


I have also wrote with Ekaterina Torbeeva from Kazan. (the redhead)

This is one of her IP's []
ANother one: Received: from ([])

I read elsewere that she was from MARI EL in

I wish i had more knowleadge about that, but i think that if me or you would make a free email acount at LIST .RU , the messages we would send also have such IP address, not the once from our actual pc's.

Yes, I have seen! I have been corresponding with her since 6/2/2006. She says she is a child psychologist. Does this sound familiar?
She has been asking for money for a Visa. She claims to have the money for airline tickets, to come see me, in the USA. She says she would use an agency by the name of 'worldeasytravel'. Her 'name' is Tatyana Seregina, or it could be Tatyana Seryogina. She says that she lives in a town called, Zelenodol'sk. Here are some pixs. Do they look familiar? I would like any info on her. I have not sent money to her. She sounds so convincing! She even called me on the phone, once.

hey guys, just wanted to say that i am disappointed that you are all getting scammed. i have never come across guys that seemed so sweet and loving. yes these girls do post such positve traits,i dunno i guess what i am trying to say is i wish that women in the US weren't so harsh or that we could comminucate better, just hate to see the good ones like me to be passed up, my ex asked me to try and block spam on his email, so in doing so i came accross exactly what you are seeing, we were pretty wasted so i had the balls to ask him and he had the balls to tell me, some chick named tatyana filipove is all up on his jock, he says she is not asking for money but in my spam blocking i came across numerous emails from her and her agent asking.. he is totally eating it up with a spoon, i tell him just be careful and he insists that she is a sweet girl and not malicious..not that he is admitting to the whole mail order type transaction for love either.. but anyway.. i just think this whole thing sux. i say i start a darn scam putting up your pics and profiles and we'll get the ruskies to pay us to come over and meet us, flip the script abit. sorry now i am just being a bit of a spitefull bitch....probably a good reason for you guys to look for imports...anyway. had to vent

Well keri, I think you are right, men are just to gullible when their hormones take over from their brain. I know a lady who was told off by her professor in Medical school because the guys at the ops-table were acting rooster in stead of looking into the patient's brain. And that is why she was dismissed, which was pretty unfair, I think.
Who says man is a rational being? :-)

I very much want to speak about love. I a lot of time dreamed, how we sit at a

I try to surround myself with the honour and sincere people, having one rare
feature which the kindness refers to as.
The love for me means freedom. Freedom of a choice of the favourite man.
I should freely choose that the man, which I should give all sincere kindness,
all feelings.
I think, that the creation of family should be based on love. If the marriage
is created not on love, it will not be long and happy.
The love is a gift which is done for the sake of the loved person.
If the soul of the man is remarkable, his weak parties remain not noticed.
The love allows me to look at the world on new.
I wanted shall have love for which I is ready to give life. I would like to have
such understanding and affinity, for the sake of which I would be ready to give

Well, it looks like Tanya has been getting around a lot!!! I just found her on another site called Marriage Agency Scams,(Jim). I'm sure that some of you have heard of him. It's definately the same girl, only she calls herself Natalya Balabanova. I'm still in a bit of a shock over the whole thing. Thank God I didn't send her the money she's been asking for, ($1100.00), supossedly for a Visa. She claims to have the money for airline tickets to the USA. Hell, if she'd give up the life of a crook, I'd marry her anyways! What a fox, and apparently, a lying scheming bitch. What a waste.
