Galotenko Anna – Makeevka, Ukraine

Absolutely insolent swindler, using photos of celebrities and photo model Adriana Sklenarikova. Asking money for everything – translation, visa, tickets.
Gamison Natasha – Russia
What SHE DID: I am not sure how but she said she got my email address from a dating site in Russia. When I asked her about the name of this agency she said she could not remember. Anyway, after just a few short letters like maybe ten she started saying that she loves me and wants to come here and stay with me in Oregon for 45 days. So she says she has to go to Moscow and get her travelling papers. Once their she writes and says she needs $515.00 for an airline ticket because the embassy will not let her fly one way. I never sent her a penny because I had gotten an email from another Russian girl months before who did the exact same thing. And last year another Russian girl did the same thing also. This time I wanted to report it!!!
Garkusha Julia – Lugansk, Ukraine
Address: Lugansk, Ukraine
This lady contacted me on Best Dating Site, a Russian based affiliate of 1st International network. I say again, she contacted me first. I corresponded with her for quite some time. She was charming, educated, and wanted very much to exchange her contact information with me. I said that I would love to, but that since my divorce was not yet final it was only fair that I inform her of that fact. The letters ceased, from April, 2014 until September, 2014 when they seemingly out of the blue started again. I wasn’t sure if it was because it was of the unrest in Eastern Ukraine that accounted for the time gap, etc., but I was thrilled to hear back from her. Using the above site is very expensive…that should have been my first clue. However, she was again very charming, and engaging, and again wanted me to obtain her contact information, despite my repeated concerns regarding the status of my divorce proceedings. She was adamant that I contact her off site. Now remember, you must pay to have your IMBRA form processed through this network (another part of the scam, obviously), so this ended up costing me some cash, to be certain. So, I obtained her address, wrote to her, and…nothing. Since her contact information included her name, I was wondering if she might be on one of the Russian social network sites. So, I was easily able to find her. Yes, she was from Lugansk. Yes, she is 25. Yes, she is the same woman, not doubt. Same profession, etc. No question, the same woman. So, when I created my own page, and contacted her through the site, using the same photos that had been posted on the original dating website, she continued to ignore me, as if we’d never carried on a correspondence. I wrote again to her email address…again nothing. I contacted the network she belonged to, and they apparently prodded SOMEONE to have her respond. She flippantly responded with a vague email about how there is not internet connection in Lugansk, and that she was responding from a friend’s computer. Funny, how she was able to daily access the internet from her cell phone to make additions to her social website (the website shows how and when the person has logged on), but “can’t use the internet” because of infrastructure damage in Lugansk. When I gently pressed her on the issue, she blocked me from her social media site, and my suspicions were confirmed–total scam artist, and I am certain that the entire network is a scam as well. A very well orchestrated dance to entice you to part with your money. However, I should have known better. The only problem being that loneliness does strange things to a person’s mind, and you want to believe so badly that someone is interested in you, that you’ll put up with a lot to maintain hope. Well, that’s all evaporated now, and all I can do is alert the rest of you to the cold-heart of this obviously monumentally selfish woman, and the company she works for. I saw from her site that she has a string of about 1000 male admirers from all over the world, so I had little chance of really getting her attention, but I’m pretty sure that this all was part of an elaborate ruse for her to ply her trade in deception and make money. To my mind, she’s little more than a prostitute, but worse: at least you can look a prostitute in the face. This woman uses an elaborate, labyrinthine layers of internet tricks to lure you in, take your money, and get away, using the agencies (oh yes, she’s listed on several that are part of the same network). I guess that I got a little too close by actually discovering where she was, and locating her in fact on a social media website. This has been a very hurtful, actually devastating experience, but in a way I have only myself to blame. I take solace in the fact that I did all of this because I was so desperately lonely–a thing that a woman like Julia Garkusha uses to make sure she can get into your wallet. Thanks for reading this, and the love of all that is Holy, stay away from this network and this woman in particular.

I have met with this woman in http://www.single-russian-woman.com/. In first 3 weeks she seemed very honest and looked like she really wanted to have serious relationship. But then she starts talking about do not have computer to chat regularly and using her friend’s lap top. After taking care of that, then she asked money for passports fee for her and for her daughter. Time to time she wrote that lost job and no money for rent. Finally she comes up with another scenario that she needs money for divorce case and then she says that her ex husband ask for money if she want to divorce. She suddenly stopped at writing and answering my phone 4 months ago. I strongly think that she is a real professional scammers. Please let people know that this woman is a real predator.

Gorlova, Kseniya Mikhaloyva – Karsnoyarsk, Russia
Address: Russia, Krasnoyarsk,66095, Kommunal’naya 4
Started out nice, but then she supposedly lost her position due to fire in the pharmacy she worked at. Then was claiming to get a visa to come here (stated due to her parents I could not come there) through a travel agent and the travel agent was securing her visa, which is impossible as you to know to come to the USA. You will see in the progression of emails and photos how she was trying to hook me. Called her bluff when I told her that my friend who works at the Russian Embassy in Moscow stated no travel agent could issue a visa to the US. She was of course asking for plane fare here.

Translation fraud Olya (Olga) Gritsenko, Marina Gorova and agency Bagira or Bagi Star. The scam is easy because it looks legitimate with agency and manager involved. The advice is to avoid sites which offer introduction with compulsory translation services. It’s certainly a scam.
Guzeeva Irena – Nikolaev, Ukraine
Address: Nikolaev, Ukraine
I reported her but she deleted profile and left site so they could not do anything about it. We began emailing for several weeks. She claimed to be poor, didn’t have money for a smart phone, nice things, like a computer so she could only write at work once a day. She worked in accounting. She has a daughter named Kseniya and built up a story of being widowed and sad because her husband was killed in the war. I was suspicious because in the photos she sent me, ( I don’t have them all because I deleted all the emails from her with them because I was upset) she always looked glamorous, with nice clothes, jewellery. Even though her story seemed suspect, my weakness took over and i agreed to send her 750.00 via western union so she could buy a computer so we could write every day and talk on web cam. She thanked me and said she was serious about me and that she would take down her profile and not look for other men. She said she couldn’t wait to write every day and see each other. It’s three weeks later and I haven’t heard from her again. My emails go unanswered. She took her profile off Elena’s and I did a Google image search on her picture in the red dress and she popped up on a bunch of other dating sites leaving posts as recent as yesterday searching for more victims I can only assume. I plan on reporting this as well to western union, US embassy, and other agencies as well to make sure this doesn’t happen to others. It’s a shame there are so many dishonest people out there.
