Novosibirsk, Russia

read the letter Russian Detective received from the owner of "Accord" agency

Tel. - n/a

Address: n/a


DOB: 1/28/77

Dear Elena,

I would like to report to you about a husband and wife scam taking place in Novosibirsk, Russia. 

It appears as if they are using Free Web sites to get people to respond to a profile posted by them most likely and then to get them to send them money either by Western Union or directly into their bank. 

The front that they are using is called the International Marriage Agency "Accord" and is supposedly located in Novosibirsk and is run by the director of the Agency ( Mihail Macheret and Olga Macheret of NOVOSIBIRSK. 

I have no idea if this attractive lady Margarita or Rita Vetrova (age 26, DOB 1/28/77)is involved or not or if she exists at all. This is an obvious scam as the letters seem to be prewritten, do not answer any questions, will not give you any personal information and are just a scam. 

There is another posting about this lady with the same or very similar letters and this Accord Agency at:  Here is the banking information:

BRACH 6695/0243 BO A/C 42301840444087400482/01

Please add this lady and this agency to your scammer "Wall of shame".

accept various planes. It is name is Tolmachevo. You can visit me at any
moment. For this purpose you can reach city of Moscow, then fly up to cities
