Immediatly after first hours we visited a zoo at kharkov and she send me back to appartment.
Next day she arrived to me and wanted to go shopping From there the « strange attitude » began We taked many clothes, jewels, very expensive boots and asked me to pay After 2 hours of shopping she was tired and wanted to back alone in her appartement FOR the next 5 days, the same thing happened, everyday we gone for a activity of one hour about, bowling, billard and others and after SHOPPING Everyday new expensive clothes, more jewels , sunglasses In same time ABSOLUTLY ZERO sign of tenderness and affection, not one single touch or even a simple words of love NOTHING Everyday she was with me for 3-4 hours only for shopping and left me alone 20 hours a day In resume in our first meeting she asked me to buy her for more than 3000$ of things in a week At this moment i was so confuse, i dont knew what is the Ukrainien women personnality and view of relation I thought that may be she wanted to see if i was serious with her The next week when i came home we began to chat on skype as we exchanged personnal informations Very fast she asked me to send her money for her graduation party, and she told me she was so sad and cried because all girls there have money for big celebration and not here So i send her 300$ with western union When i conected on wedding website and asked her in chat if she received money, she was furious and told me to never ever talk about money on website, it was not accepted and she will have problem and be banned.
We began to organise our second meeting This time i wanted to go in mariupol and meet her parents and real life AGAIN , even if she made me promises, she refused with energy again and again, even if i told her how much i wanted to see her real life and family, she firmly refused She wanted to go back again in kharkov with me and she promised me to be much more closer and even stay alone with me in appartment In july she cried again after me , told me she had no money to offer a gift for her mother Jeanna, asked me to buy her a televisor, i send her 400$ She also explained me with such love and energy that SHE NEED to see me every day life on skype we could spend hours of live video talking to each other, she was so passionnate with this offer to me ! But for it, she needed a ipad 3
She prayed me to buy her a ipad and bring in august and how our love will be more closer if we have video chat everyday, and she wanted that more than everything YES i bought her and bring a 800$ ipad August 2011, second meeting at kharkov First bad surprise , she totally changed her mind and refused to live closer to me she gave me the same appart, the other side of city from her She just told me she just changed her mind EXACTLY the same thing happened, she immediately the first day gone with me in shopping, but this time more expensive jewels, more expensive clothes and boots and many others objects to go with her new ipad The third day, i refused to continue this game and told her that i was not a bank and i was tired to pay for everything and even don’t have one single sign of tenderness or love , even not a single words of thanks you.
She began to give me some kisses , but continued to refused with agressivity that i hold her in my arms and just touch her just simply and tenderly Even after that moment, she waited one day and again asked me to buy her more things But big surprise, she had to leave for mariupol ,2 days before for some reasons, and she left me there alone at kharkov Second meeting resume, about 3000$ dollars of objects again and an ipad , THE IPAD were not used one single time to have video chat with Sevtlana, i asked her more than 10 times in the next weeks to respect her promises but she refused to answer my demands
After second meeting because i was not happy of what happened she promised to leave all wedding website to proof me that she really love me and only me In the next weeks, one of my friend made a profile and began to talk with her and he had many hours of chat with her, she told him she have meet no man and she wanted to meet him as soon as possible in ukraine. I was with my friend often and Svetlanaclosed our talk telling me she had to go to work and she continued to chat with my friend for long long at same moment. I was totally in shock as i had closed my profiles and i respected our agreement. When i told her about my friend, she just told me i was not honest and made a trap for her and i was only responsable of the problem In automn 2011 she wrote to me that she had to go in kiev for an incredible chance to have study to work in cosmetic world and woman beauty At last minutes she send me message that she taked the train and need my help because she will arrive to kiev and no money to live, she told me, i was her man and i had to protect her and do real actions, For the next month, i had to send her thousands of dollars to pay appart at kiev and all she needed. I planned a 3rd meeting with her in october 2011 for her birthday, she was so happy so happy to see me, i was her love , her man ,her savor, i gave her proof of my real love and now she wanted me to live with me at kiev like real couple Some days before my plane, i wrote to her that i am coming but we will have to be quiet, i have less money than useless because i already pay for all her need , food ,apart. BIG surprise and so strange hazard, after i told her we will not make shopping like we use she send me a letter that she have to move one week to another city for a very special formation, only her and another woman were choose because they are the 2 best So she refused to let me come to her, and cancelled my trip. I tried and tried to ask her to come to the other city with her, SHE firmly refused told me that she will study 7 days a weeks, it was a so bad HAZARD that surprise formation was exactly same time than my trip to her, where i had less money ,so strange She made me lose 1200$ because it was too late to get a refund to my ticket It is FAR to be the end, just the begining After all this i made a search on scammers black list website and i found SVETLANA with many pictures, i found 3 reports about her A man called Robert said that she asked him to buy a computer and thousands of dollars of clothes and many expensive things and she asked him many hundreds of dollars to buy thing for her family. They had some pictures of Svetlana, that was the same woman I was in shock and i wrote to her it was over and she was just a scammer and lier She wrote to me again and again and again email and on skype to tell me how she love me, she will die if she lose me and she can’t survive without my love, again all will be change now and she will be totally and forever mine She told me that « Robert » the man who have report her was a bad men and he was very bad with her and he was jealous because she told him that she found her true love (me) and that was just a revenge The story of this man was so exactly the same as i lived, I know i am a stupid silly man but Svetlana is a so incredible lier and manipulator that she were able to make me believe in her again She wanted to meet me again at kiev and this time she will be totaly mine, forever mine I decided to buy a ticket again and i came to Kiev in January 2012 All was perfectly planned by Svetlana, it was the moment to « play the big deal » She organised a great evening with champagne and everything and we had a great lover night. The next morning all the worst side of her personality played her best role Before she go to work she taked in my pocket 600$ , she wanted a new telephone, a iphone
She never bought the telephone, she told me she just changed her mind but kept the money
She came back after work and opened the door of apartment and began to cry Her mom needed 6000$ dollars to save her apartment, someone in her family had part of apartment and wanted to sale and if mom don’t had this money she will be in street She perfectly knew that the moment after we had first moments together was the perfect timing, i found and gave her 6000$ dollars.
She told me her mom was ill and in hospital and she had to left me alone in Kiev and go to her mom The next hour she was gone and left me alone in Kiev all week I tried to come with her at Mariupol but she refused strictly told me she will have no time for me 7 days later she came back , and asked me to pay the trip Mariupol-Kiev, another 250$ , it was late at night and she knew i had my plane the next morning When she arrived i tried to take her in my arms to kiss her and she aggressively pushed me away again, refused that i just hold her in my arms.
I left the next morning totally confused and lost She were very quiet for many weeks, and the 11th of April i received an email,
She can’t work anymore and from June 2012 to Febuary 2013 i send her 9000$ to make sure she miss nothing She asked me to come to her in October and again last minute cancellation by her SHE REFUSED me to come , she told me she have no place to live for me. Then she offered me to come to Canada in march 2012, she asked me to buy tickets for us I asked her in December to complete the visa demand , i made a lot of things and made everything needed , all she had to do is get her visa and passport, i have send her so many letter and papers with all she had to do.
The 21th febuary i receive a letter, she is sad and so sorry, she done nothing and she was too late, she even don’t made papers for passport.
She made me lost AGAIN 2000$ for the tickets lost Than i told her, ok i come to see you and we will complete the last papers together SHE refused to see me and let me come, no explanation, no letter just a total refuse to let me come at Mariupol.
I told her that I will not give her one more dollar until I see her and her mother and real life She stopped to write and never answered I never ever been able to come at Mariupol,
Svetlana have taked of me, more than 20,000$ dollars in less than 2 years She have lied to me so much so many times She is an horrible manipulator, a professional patient and determinated scammer She is not a silly scammer who ask money online and fall in love at 3rd letter, she is patient and careful and her goal is to have real meeting where she ask thousands of dollars of gifts and after a moment she ask a big amount of money (5000-6000$) NOW i see she have opened again many profiles on wedding website If we do nothing she will find another victim.
Now she saw that I have reported her on some scammer list, she have send me letters where she promise me to ask to a old witche of Ukraine to make a curse on me and make me ill ? Thanks for your understanding, this woman have destroyed my life and taked all my economy and no way i will let her destroy another person. I have more than 20 letters where she ask money, I have more than 9000$ of western union receipt at her name and I have many pictures to prove all I say in this letter.

Lymareva Irina – Novosibirsk, Russia
Address: 21/7 Medkadry, Novosibirsk, Novosibirskaya oblast, 630075, Russia
I have been in contact with this Siberian 29-year-old woman since late, late March. I told her I never joined any Russian site, but she ignored my question. She was very persistent in writing me weekly – usually with pictures in various poses. The last one included her with a new passport in hand. She even showed me her passport in detail. It all seemed so real. She seemed so genuine. She wrote of serious marriage with me and moving to my country quickly, as he school visa was soon in her hands. She had this already? It was her wish to be with a love she could be with for many years. She convinced me to make a fool of myself in front of others. She then suddenly claimed to be 260 dollars short. She was surprised at the cost. I asked her at various times if I could telephone her. She ignored my requests. As the weeks went on, suddenly she started to add a lot of information on how I was to pay her for a school visa. She went through various ways on how to do it, including adding her local bank, Money Mart or Western Union. So she pleaded to hurry with the payment as the visa cut-off date was less than a few days away. Everything from her seemed rushed. She did not even comment on my own photo. Nothing. With each email she sent, she just kept adding her own numerous pictures of herself in various locations. I got tipped off by a few of these websites that she is a fraud. It was heart-breaking. She must be exposed, as she appears to be unstoppable on the web. She hurts with deceit. I invested my time and told others of my good luck. I am now being pointed-out as a fool. As I wrote, her letters were unlike any average Russian woman would write. Too detailed. Too perfect. No incorrect words spelt in English.
