We do urge you to visit the Blacklist of the sites on this page to make yourself aware of what can happen.Read some of the letters of the Russian Scammers on the Blacklist and familiarize yourself on how the Russian Scammers work.
If you have any questions or believe some name appeared here by mistake, please contact us at blacklist@You may wish to view the whole list but we suggest using the search tool instead.
Make your search query short, for instance when looking for "Olya Kirpichnikov", use "Kirpich" or "Kirpichnikova" as your query, not the full name as there may be variations.
When looking up this address "Russia, 424000, , Tver, Podolskih Kursantov 4-99", enter a part of the street name as your search query, for example you may search for "Kursant" etc.
Photos and Names of Scammers on this page were used in a verified visa scam.
Needless to say, once you send money this person disappears (alternatively you may be asked for more money transfers).
It is not our purpose to provide you with detailed anti-scam manual, - there are plenty of web-sites dedicated to this type of scam.
You meet someone over the Internet and this someone claims to be a beautiful Russian woman (or Ukrainian, Belarussian etc etc).
You correspond with this person (often it's a man, not a woman actually) and one day (sometimes in few days, sometimes in few months) you are asked to send money to her to buy a visa and airplane tickets to come to visit you, to help her poor mother "who is ill and at hospital" etc etc etc.
The photos may have been bought from innocent girls or may be those of the actual scammer.
