Guys be careful of Olena Fedorchenko, lugansk, she writes all thi sromantic poetry, pushes to meet soon asks for help in buying the flight. Then two days before we were supposed to meet she writes looling for more money because immigration need her to be in Kiev the day before her flight then the next day she says her visa has been postponed, no word since, 400 euros worse off!!

My god Ojas,
There are some very sick people out there from the scammers themselves to this sick asshole.I seek justice and not revenge sometimes it seems there is a fine line between the two.I want to hurt these people where it counts the most their wallets!!! she hurt me very badly and needs to answer for all of her lies and deceit but what this man did to this girl he should be shipped back to Lugansk and dealt with with their laws.

OJAS from United States  
Precisely Craig,
My interest is encouraging pursuit using whatever strategy available to each victim. I am not in a position to judge how to handle a criminal once caught. Personally I prefer long jail terms and barring computer access + community service worth many times the stolen money. But each case has to run its judicial course of the host country.

However scammers may rub the wrong guys the wrong way, who decide to take law into their own hands. The sword can cut both ways sometimes, as some scammers are too dumb to know, they may get more than they sought!!

My way of paying scammers back is to expose all their lies, and limited intelligence, so they have to keep on inventing new set of lies all the time, making life as hard as possible. Innocent guys like you and other victims work hard, pay taxes ... scammer does neither. The more eyes watching them, the better. The more victims pursue them, the better.

Eddie is right about Armond. Roamer makes a good distinction between justice that you seek, and revenge, my links show.

Scammers of course regularly threaten arson / violence against victims and their families


I wonder how they may have threatened some victims to the point of taking law into their own hands!!

Be careful with Yana Gorkaya this girl used the same letters as miss Sharova and excactly the same.
Than this Yana is in contact with Dasha as her interpreter, Sharova use or used the same girl as translator.
I was 4 times in Lugansk first visit a meeting with Sharova and later two meetings with other Lugansk girls.
It is very difficult to find a good girl in this city but I have luck now.
I have learned from Irina Sharova and the second girl I met there.
Possible this Irina Sharova and Yana Gorkaya work in a group of scammers do not forget Lugansk is a student city!!!
Call interpreter Dasha and see how she is in panic as you begin to talk about Irina Sharova direct she give her phone to a drunken man.

Hello-It has become apparent that this girl (lubov or Irina or Yana or whatever her name is almost got me too. When I asked her about this info on this website and mentioned I had seen it she the person that was corrosponding with me got very defensive and all the usual stuff and mysteriously changed tune. I think that her way of translating letter info is partly to blame, but since she would not provide picture with gift that i sent it proved to me that who is in the picture is not neccessarily who you are corrosponding with----T. ps-be careful.

PLEASE, please, DO NOT tell anyone you communicate with about this site or any other scam site.

What happens is this. They stop using their present email addy put the currently used photo set (stolen of course) away, dig out another photo set, start using an old 'e' addy sitting on the back burner somewhere or get a new one, invent another dozen profiles or more with the same 'new' photo set and WE have to start all over.

All the VETS here will tell you this.

Also, more info please.

Name, first and last.
Email address
Phone, if available
First email w/header
Money letter w/header
Photos w/name listed
Site met

Any other info you feel relevant.

This info will be picked up by the web for future searches.

You have already let the cat out of bag, so how about giving us more info on this one.

Also, the 'girl' you have been writing to is really a man. Yes, a man. In over 90% of scams.

Actually, the header is maybe the most important piece of info. If using the same computer, IP doesn't change, even if names and photos do. Of course many use proxy servers to bypass that, but if they do, we know it is a scam.

good hunting............drod

And this was her letter,

Hello my dear new friend, XXXXXX
First of all I must say that I am very happy that we have done our first step in our comunication, and I really hope that we will follow this steps further and our comunication will grow to a very strong and well developed relationships, and in future... who knows :)) But I will hope for all best!

I am so pleased and happy to receive your letter! Thank you very much for it! it is very interesting for me to know you better, as you write in a very good way and I can say that I have rather clear picture about you and about your living there.
Reading your letter, with each further sentence I realized that I have a feeling that this letter is written by my second half of my soul. Everything you wrote is so close to me, to my heart...
I really hope that my first conclusion will not be wrong.

Thank you very much for sending me your photo and showing me how handsome you are. I really like it, and I hope I will receive more of them, will you promise me to send? :)

So I know about you some information, and I am sure with each letter you will write me more and more about yourself, about your childhood, about your familly, about your plans for future, your work, your hobbies and your willings and so on. And from my side I promise the same! Each letter I will write you about my desires, about my feelings and I will answer all questions you want to know about me!
I want to have a good corespondance with you, and I want we use a both-side dialog, I hope you understand me and you are not against?
I believe in very good and loving relationships. To achieve this first of all we must have trust to be friends, then maybe lovers. And yes to be good friends we must have good communication, that is the only way to stay friends and not have big misunderstandings.

And so, let me tell you some information about myself:

First of all I want to start with my name. My name is Lubov, and do you know the translation and meaning of this word? I have the most romantic name I suppose- as my name translates as Love :))
I am very thankfull to my parents who gave me that name, and I think this name tells so much about me and my soul and I am sure it suits my appearance. I am really feel a great love inside of me which I want to share with a special persone who will preciate this love...

As for my appearance, I think it is better for you to see everything with your own eyes, isn't it? And I really hope you will like what you will see :)
I am not very tall, I am rather slim woman with blond long hair. I can sure you that I always look after my appearance very carefully, as I think for woman it is a big crime to look bedly and not to look after her face, hair and nails.
In fact I don't have possibillity to go to the beauty salons and to buy a very expensive clothers. But I try to choose clothes which suits me, even it is very cheap.

I like to smile and I always try to find just good sites of this life and I try not to be sad. I don't like to be sad, and I have never been depressed, as in life we have so many beautiful and interesting moments, so I even don't look at bed ones.
As you can guess I am very positive persone. I am calm, and I am very shy. But I think all ukrainain woman has this shy in character.
I love people, i think i am a generous person so i have been told, I am sincere, but i can be firm too.

I have very wild imagination, as my hobby is reading books. I like to imagine main herous, their life, they lifestyle and most of all I like to imagine countryes. As unfortunatully I have never been abroad, but I am very curious about countryes abroad, about their lifestyle, history, and places of interest. It is very interesting for me and I really want one day to have a world cruise, maybe we will be together? :) I live in Ukraine,in the most Easten part of the country- in Lugansk, it is not very spectaculary place, rather small town, but it is my native and I like it very much.

Also, I am very familly and home preciated persone. I like to spend hours cleaning my flat and make rooms cosy. I like the smell of good and tasty food in kitchen, so to keep it I like to cook also. It is my great pasion :)

Oh, I can see it is rather long letter already, but I am not able to stop writting. It is already very dificult for me to say you good buy. I don't know, maybe I have already got used to you?
Of course I haven't written all I wanted, but I want you to have interest about me. And to keep your interest I need to keep some sectets in first letter, for you to want to write me secnd, am I right? :)

Please take care of yourself,
I am waiting for your reply very impationatelly!
Lubov with Love :)

Later I send her a letter from own mailbox that she know and she say I was wrong she is not Irina because I start my letter with hello Irina.
I send my picture and she know me very well and got in her answer no picture return.

hello to all you guys out there. My name is David and have only recently started surfing the internet browsing some of these dating sites. Apparently to my experience thus far, it is shocking to find so many of these scammers around. You can smell one ready to pounce on you when chatting with these cheap skates. Some even start talking about WESTERN UNION on their very first couple of chat, or about their travel to oversea with their parent and sudden illness requiring urgent medications, or being left in a situation by their boyfriend, etc .... in my opinion, it is unto us if we are to be victimized in a scam. I really appreciate this site and hope there are other similar sites for listing of these scams. What i like to point out is, why would anyone send money to another person you have not even physically met ?? I believe many of us may not even give out any money to someone we meet physically at our own neighborhood or loan to a friend for that matter, so why send money to a person you can't verify really existed ?? If anyone is really keen to get a person to join him from overseas, i feel there are many ways to get it done, like getting the person to be check out at your country embassy of the person, i think that is a workable solution. If the lady can't even get transportation to travel to the nearest embassy for this purpose, then i would strongly suggest to forget her no matter how pretty she may be. I have this new principle for myself ' never send any money to anyone, ever ' though i have yet to become a victim. You may like to believe you are getting a good deal from these arrangement but i really doubt so. As much as like to have a beautiful girl but I would stop responding to any contact with the slightest suspicions of these kind of characters. The conclusion is even if it's genuine, but money is the issue from the very start, then i am skeptical for this relationship to work. By the way, it is not only Ukrainians or Russians as listed here are scam, there are so many that claim to be from States, Europe and Australiasia, which many that i came across asking for help with their tales and stories of their life. I have not come across any scam potential with those that are from South East Asia. I dare say, 10 out of 10 asian never talk about money or need of help though they are much poorer compare to those from States or Europe. Will try to write more and post some pictures of alleged scams in my future comments. The Indonesian are borrowing money to travel overseas to find work and job to earn a living in a foreign land for a better life, are these potential partner in search of a better life out of hardship not able to get a small loan for their travel which may be reimburse when she reaches you. I will really thing many times over and still never send anything. USE THIS POLICY !! NEVER SEND ANYTHING !!

Hey, i'm trying to get a dispatches or panorama documentary set up about dating scams. it would be very helpful if these scams get on TV. it will name and shame these people and quite frankly i'm sure all of you would love to see these people being asked questions on TV and possibly arrested as panorama and dispatches have done before. Please take a look at the websites and e-mail in. I don't work for any of these programs but i have a friend that was deeply affected by this person. Remember it's not only irina we're after. It's anyone like this.


Please put your comments in as suggestions. If enough go through this will be aired.
2008-04-22, 13:14:14
The pictures are real. I have seen her and this is her or someone very similar so she can't get rid of these pictures. She makes money when you actully go out and meet her as well.
