2007-01-29 09:15:29 - Dale
Hello my name is Dale I am a 40 year old divorced male. Just thought I would take the time to give you the info that was presented to me by this scam. She originally contacted me through an online dating (Yahoo Personals) service on 7/11/2006 her online name on this site was pixdecpolnui. She contacted me with the letter shown below and ask me to contact her at her private e-mail address (mariya1232@rambler.ru) which I did and the letters that follow are what she sent. On 7/18/2006 I found out her full name being used is Mariya Ivanova and she is from Orlov, Russia. The dating service was contacted on 7/11/2006 as soon as I discovered she was from Russia and an investigation was started. No money was lost by me because I was cautious and did not send money to someone I did not know. This has been the 6th scammer that I have come in contact with. I hope this helps warn others of the scams was lucky T. Dale Gregory

Hello my new friend Dale

You would know how many pleasures to me have brought that you have answered me! Now I understand, that people in your country really responsible ! Today I came into computer club and have scanned some the images and with this letter I send them to you, I hope, that I to you like. I directly would like to learn more about you to learn your interests as you live as you work. I am very glad to have such friend, as you. I in life very cheerful person and at me very responsible work as I already spoke, I work to help the bookkeeper, and I not in what a case should not make a mistake, both in work and in life I not less responsible person, I think, that the person should concerns to associates as wants that to it concerned. In my life was a lot of pleasure, but besides it is pleasure always stood on a number with more sad events.
I never was for the husband and I have no children, but I very much would like them to have, but from the person with whom our love would be mutual and that the child anything did not require. The main features of human character I think Sincerity, kindness, politeness and as I think, that the person it is necessary should be the respectable citizen with love to the country. I very much frequently see young pairs, I see as they are happy, I sincerely am glad for them, but thus I remain itself the person whom not loved At me when that was one friend, but it is little bit sad history, I was possible shall tell to you about it little bit later.
I as like to be on a nature, there I feel quieter. As other
my hobby is domestic animals and in particular as I already
spoke you my cat Murka. On it I also shall finish the letter
to you, and with impatience I shall look forward to hearing.

I am Steve from San Diego CA. I was first contacted by Natalya on 10 Mar 06, and I am still in contact with this person. Last letter was 6 May 06. First she contacts you and tells you about her and City of Koltas, Russia. Also asks you to reply only if you are interested in a serious relationship. Tells you how she saw your profile and likes what she reads. After 4 or 5 letters she now tells you her real ? name and that she was using a pseudonym to start. Then in the next couple of letters how much in love she is with you, cant live without you and wants to marry you. By letter 10-12 she wants to come to meet you but because of her small salary needs help to get to Moscow, and file for K-1 Visa, Visa of the bride. $410. But wants you to send the money in the name of her aunt who lives in Moscow, Natalia Rechkova. Then when in Moscow ?, she writes and says that her visa is rejected because she does not have plane tickets or money to travel with to enter this country. $1400-2200. I became very suspicious at this point and wrote her that in would be a couple of months to save that much for her. the last letter I received was on 6 May 06 saying she would go home and wait for me to send the money then would come to me.

2007-01-29 05:46:43 - Adam
My Name is Adam and I live in Florida, USA. I want to alert you of a scammer and I don't mind you using this information to help others. I do not want my name or email address listed anywhere. I ran an add on Yahoo personals and was contacted by an Olga from Archangelsk, Russia. I had never been in contact of any kind with a girl from Russia and was taken in for a few minutes by it but believed it to be "too good to be true" from the start. She followed the traditional scam path (as I have now learned about on the net). Sent me photos, several emails, never really answered my questions directly, and mentioned how much a computer costs in the 5th email. Pirogova, Luba (aka Tatyana Berezina, Elena Medyanik, Tatyana Tyumen, Elena, Elvira Muchametova)Olga Tregubova, 20-05 Abramova str., Arkhangelsk, Russia 163015. email: Tregubova@yandex.ru. She rarely ever answered any direct questions.

My friend was online, met someone, who said he lived in Texas. Next thing, she got flowers, candy, fruit baskets, the whole story. Now, she has moved out into her own apartment, but I am getting at my address 3 boxes of computers from Dell, and they are supposed to be reshipped to Africa? What to do?

HI, I have been contacted by Ariana. As experienced by others, I am told that I am love of her life. She has sent some preety pictures which look quite convincing. Emails are also convincing. The latest email address being used is arianka777@yahoo.com.
The first thing I did when I got that email was to put the email address in google. Well, thankfully, this forum confirmed my fears.


2007-01-15 08:30:59 -
Yep I've got this one too, and thanks for google is all I can say. What a stunner, though!!! But hey I guess that is what hooks blokes in.

I did think it was a scam all the way along but maybe to get money for implants - sorry cheap shot as she still is a good looking girl on myphotoalbum.

Beware of the following messages below, I realised this was a scam, by following the link to view professionally taken pictures. As well as someone claiming to be working in advertising in the UK would surly at least use a spell checker. Another give away is that the person wanted to correspond through an external address.

I've reported the scam to dating.direct.
message:



My derect meil is: ARIANKA777 at YAHOO dot COM

I did not publish my pics on my profile because I dont want anyone see tham, I give you link to my photoalbum you can see few of my pics there, if we continue our respondence I will send you more of my pics by emeil...
Bellow is a linkk of my photoalbum:

I've just had Ariana email me from dateing driect too, claiming to be from Cambridge, saying that she wanted to get to know me. He/she whoever it may be, sends a like to veiw photograhps of her, up which appears a pretty girl.

I emailed her back before dawning on me that it could be a scam. Thankfully i did nothing but say thanks for contacting me and hope to hear back from her,. But thankfully having found this site i have now blockd her email address and reported her to dateing direct.

Her email address using this time is arianka777@yahoo.com


2007-01-14 05:17:19 -
Yep he struck again! just received an email from the one and only ARIANKA777! would suggest anyone that randomly selects you to "fall in love" with then google first! Like Dave says have fun and wind them up like! lol


2007-01-13 18:22:07 - Dave
I just received a message from ARIANKA777@yahoo.com too. Uses a profile on dating direct with the name 'Jane' (profile 3501020'). Its kind of an automatic response these days for me to google userid's for people who send me emails containing lots of broken english. This is not the first time this has happened. I have fun winding these people up anyway.

Very recently I have had contact to a lady who was from Cheboksary, too, who wrote me the same letter like number two of Tatyana Sergeeva, but she sent me totally different photos and she had a different name which was Natasha Machihina. It seems there is someone abusing photos of women and who is able to even use different names and possibly addresses. Unfortunately my mailbox broke down two weeks ago and it could not be restored so I cannot give you her email and address to verify with the one of Tatyana Sergeeva. Anyway, she tried to get money to keep up the communication through an internet cafe and I was lucky to not pay anything, as I have made very bad experiences with other ladies before. I wrote her that she should not have asked me for money and it would be better that we stop at that point. So the whole thing was harmless for me.

I also received a message from Nane in datingdirect.com, who asks me to write to her Yahoo address arianka777@yahoo.com. Thanks everybody for the information.


2007-01-13 05:09:31 -
Hey

Been contacted by a 'girl' on UK dating site datingdirect, looked a bit fishy so I googled the email she gave me - it's arianka777@yahoo.com and it came up with this site. I've reported 'her' to the site.

I'm tempted to go along with it for a bit to wind 'em up...probably not a good idea?

Dave
