City: Saint Petersburg
Address: Street national team 35, Saint Petersburg, 195112, Russia
I never sent a penny, but she was determined to scam me over $$ for a trip to the USA. “I did not know that I need the money. But I promise that I will immediately give you the money as soon as I arrive. I’ll give them to you at the airport, at your fingertips. I need to show them that the customs control. If you agree to help me, how can I get the money. I was told that there is a money transfer system, called Western Union and MoneyGram, these systems are safe and very fast. I knew you were a real man, and not leave me in trouble. My love, I fly to you, I immediately give you your $ 500. Now I will try to find the rest of the money and I will do all that we were together. I am ready to give everything for you. I love you.”
Tabanova, Oksana – Kargopol, Russia
Address: Kargopol, Russia
We met on OKcupid. She used the exact same story/scenario as Esemanova, Oksana Anatolevna – Kargopol, Russia, but different pictures. She sent over 150 different pics total. I figured it out after the same letters were getting sent in a rotation after a month and she started plugging the prefix of my email address into the letters where my name normally went. She also uses your name too much in her letters.
Tarasova Natalia – Glazov (Udmurtia), Russia
Address: Glazov (Udmurtia) Russia
I entered the agency onedate.com to search for a woman for relationship. I found one that matched my preferences with the pseudonym KOZOCHKA. We began to write to each other in a more and more lovely manner. She appeared as modest, affectionate, and introduced her family to me, even with pictures of them. I offered the possibility of my travelling to Russia to meet her, but she denied it and preferred to come to Spain with me because shed had 2 month vacations. After consulting a travel agency she told me that she had no enough money to come with me. I sent money for the via and travel costs. She went to Moscow to get the VISA and got it (I saw a scanned copy, which corresponded with her identity). Given that the Schengen states ask for a minimum amount of money to show at the customs upon arrival, she asked to me for 2800 euros. I trusted her because I saw the visa copy, I and sent this money. Of course she did not show at the airport. I claimed for my money but I have not heard from her again.
Tchetkasowa Oksana – Krasnoufimsk, Russia
Website: Yahoo Personals
I am a single white male, 44, one child, and was contacted by Oksana from Yahoo personals. We emailed for about 10 days regarding work visas and travelling to America. She finally requested money, but I found her pictures on womenrussia.com blacklist.

I’ve found Olga Terekhova 9 June on the website www.lablue.de met. I sent chatting to her e-mail address with the statement that you can write better there. (Nickname not know, I only know that she was logged in as from Hamburg.) I have looked on the internet whether it is somewhere known. I have found nothing and have given myself to her. We wrote three weeks every day, then has impressive me. I suggested that I would come to Russia. She refused and they would rather come to me to Germany. First, you just wanted to have money for visa 425 euros. Although feeling says no, but I trusted her and sent her the money. My bad feeling towards her was greater after the transfer.

Tereshenko Olga Rovno, Summy,Ukraine
Address: Rovno, Summy,Ukraine
She initiated contacted (of course). Was very very smooth and I never doubted her for a minute and I’m a very very doubtful person. I can detect a scammer after reading a a couple of lines. Jer emails were just so natural and she never asked me for money directly. Until we reached the point where we would meet. She asked me to book her visit through a Ukrainian travel agency and sent me their website http://frigatetravels.at.ua/. The website was all in Russian/Ukrainian so I told her so and that I couldn’t do the booking online and asked her for their email. She sends me this email: FrigateTravel@i.ua
I right asking them as to how I can book a visit for a friend from the Ukraine to Sharm El Sheikh and they reply back with bank account details and also suggested a Western Union transfer:
“As for payments options, you can make a payment to our bank account into the name of our director, or use Money Gram or Western Union transfers.

I naturally didn’t like it at first. And I suggested to er that I would rather transfer the money to her and then she can pay (pretty smart huh 🙂 Well sadly this is how much I trusted her. You can imagine the rest… she never showed up.
And you know what’s even sadder? I might have actually believed her story about missing the flight but I when I checked with the hotel’s reservation department they said there was no booking in her name or the travel agency. In fact the guy was kind enough to tell me that there wasn’t even any “No Shows” or canceled bookings on the date she was supposed to come. And when I told her all that and asked to send me her ticket no. or any proof that she ever bought the ticket she stopped replying to emails and never answered my calls.
Tihonova Angelika – Chusovoy, Russia
Address: Chusovoy, Russia
I wish to report scam which has cost me £13,000 and a lot of heartache. The girl involved operates under the name of Angelika Tihonova, with a perceived address in Chusovoy. I met the girl on a website called Match.Com. She seemed fine but how wrong was I after months of conversation in the internet. During her proposed holiday she offered to come to see me. Problems started immediately. Her wages didn’t come in, money to get visa and ticket. At the airport in Moscow wasn’t allowed to board flight because, along with her mother, were debtors to the bank and couldn’t leave. I paid the supposed loan and then another 4,000 euro so that she could travel. Of course she didn’t turn up at the airport. What happens? Her mother phones to say that she was attacked in Perm but the money was in the police station and all would be fine. It just goes on, Angelika becomes very unwell and money is needed to take her from one hospital to another. I really did think she was genuine. Of course I questioned her, but she provided proof of two passports, tickets, invoice from bank, and wait for this one. medical report along with scan. This was professionals at their work and I was the one caught. I hope others do not fall foul of this evil trap. It has ruined my life.
Tihonova Anzhelika (Angelika, Anatolevna) – Chusovoy, Russia

She seemed fine but how wrong was I after months of conversation in the internet. Was contacted through Mach.com and Firstdate.com. During her proposed holiday she offered to come to see me. Problems started immediately. Her wages didn’t come in, money to get visa and ticket. At the airport in Moscow wasn’t allowed to board flight because, along with her mother, were debtors to the bank and couldn’t leave. This all was just a start. Asked for money for visa, passport, airline tickets and Finnish laws for the 45 euro / day (90 days). I am a fool, and I gave the money. She even sent a notary’s bond, which will also be fake.
