The following is a brief description of a group of scammers operating in Yoshkar-Ola their names are listed below. My name is David, a Canadian. I was first contacted by a Nadya (Chichikova Nadezhda Vladimirovna) on Canadian Personals a free website. and I have been scammed by this group but they have taken pity on me and now are my friends. They feel a little guilty for what they have done and are now trying to make amends with me. There are literally more than a hundred emails which are available and many photos. Since having confessed to their crime I have even had web cam based chat sessions with three of the group. They are trying to make amends by offering to introduce me to the young woman from the photos who according to the principles was unaware of the scam. I know the phone numbers are accurate as when called they do reach these people. I believe the addresses are real too. If further information is requested or required I will be happy to provide it. I am preparing to lodge an official complaint with Russian authorities and would appreciate if you posted this on your websites.

This was the typical scam young Russian woman contacts guy, falls in love soon after, is poor and wants to leave Russia. The scam is for fees for travel, visa etc. through Tuda Tours Kazan office. Western Union or Money Grams prefered methods of payment.

Hi David!

Thanks that you have answered my profile. It is very pleasant for me:)
I at once want to ask you for what you want to correspond with me? As
I want to explain to you for what I have placed the profile on a site
of acquaintances on the Internet... I the student, study on a faculty
of law, I finish the fifth rate. At me good family - mum and my senior
brother. Mine the daddy was the militarian (served in special armies)
he was the commander... he was lost two years ago executing a service
duty (at clearing hostages in Moscow). I very much loved mine the
daddy. him strongly does not suffice me: ((( My senior brother, his
name Andrey studied at military university. Now he serves in special
military group. he is married. Also lives отдельно from us. I live
with mum. My mum this Hour anywhere does not work, - she the
pensioner. Earlier she worked in militia.:) At me it is a lot of
hobbies... I like to read, go to theatre, cinema, cafe, dancing clubs.
I am engaged in dances, I go to pool, every Friday I go to go for a
drive on horses. My favourite season is autumn:) I very much like my
country (Russia) but I do not want to remain here.... Because in
Russia the life every year becomes worse and worse... I want to meet
the person who will be for me a support and my most favourite husband.
With which I can create normal family and bring up children. In the
person I appreciate the following: Honesty, Mind, Culture, Decency,
Fidelity and Love. For me has no value appearance of the person....
The most important that the person was pleasant and open by soul!

Dear (exactly dear) mr. David XXXX!
It is a shame for me, but I have to tell you the following:
I am doing it not because I am afraid something. I have to do it because you
makes me respect you. During our dialogue I understood that you sincerely love
me and that you are most disinterested and fair person I I have ever met in my
My name is Oleg. I am the student of the State University. I'm 21. I tried to
steal your money, and for this purpose I have taken advantage of the request of
one familar girl Tatyana about the help for accommodation of her photo on dating
sites. Tatyana my good familiar.... She has no skills of possession in computer.
Therefore she has addressed to me.
I am scammer! I have taken advantage of her photos to deceive you. However,
during our dialogue I have felt that I CAN NOT and I DO NOT WANT to deceive
somebody. I sincerely repent in that what I have made! I understand that I don't
deserve any respect or indulgence of you. However I ask you to consider that I
shall tell...... I have told to Tatyana about what I have made. I have told her
about it yesterday, I have shown her your letters and photos. I have told her
that you love her sincerely and very strongly! Tatyana was afflicted very much,
and she damns me for that I has made. She has told that if she has met such
person like you, she really would arrive to him for ever!
Tatyana is 21 years old. She is from the countryside, from very poor family. For
any girl in her position to leave to such man like you would be the beginning of
new life. Please listen now my offer.... First of all I oblige to return your
money, which you have sent for the tickets. I think that I can return to you
this money within three months. And also I want to tell the second thing to
you..... The girl whom you saw in the photos... she is really kind, sincere
person. In my letters I have tried to reflect her character, after long
conversation with Tatyana, I think that unique expiation of my fault would be
your real meeting with this girl. Tatyana would like to get acquainted with you.
That is all that I can promise to you! I can not promise you that she will love
you. But, you are interesting to her as the person who has grown fond of her
image. Mr. David XXX, I sincerely hope that you can understand the reasons
induced me to write this letter. I really think that you are the person of
HONOUR, capable of sincere feelings!!! I can help you to meet that girl with
which you corresponded. If you have an opportunity to travel to Russia, I shall
be glad to provide your meeting with Tatyana and I can SWEAR that it is not the
next swindle!
If you consider that it would necessary, you can address in police bodies and
inform them about that you were deceived by me. Probably that your efforts in it
will successful and I shall go in prison, however, in that case you can not meet
I understand, David, that this letter shocks you, probably you hate me.......
This is your right! However, before to make a decision, I ask you to think of
that you can find that girl which you are dreamed about. And you deserve to be
happy with Tatyana. I saw it in your letters.
I do not ask you to forgive me..... That is impossibe to forgive the thing I
have made.... I just ASK you to listen to your heart!
I assure you, that all written above is the TRUTH.
Probably it sounds not plausibly, but I can give you any proofs...
Yours faithfully to you, Oleg (the person who has deceived
you............................. BUT I CAN'T MAKE IT ANY MORE!!!!!)
