I met Lyubov Sayko in February 2013 when visiting with her sister Tania Sayko in Kherson, Ukraine. Lyubov seemed a very intelligent and well spoken, articulate girl. Very different from her younger sister - Lyubov had more of a confrontational type personality (what we would call a "Driver"), whereas her sister was more warm and soft-spoken. Lyubov was more harsh and seemed to crave the spotlight. She was very proud of being "The Boss." She called herself "The Boss" a lot and took control of the conversation from the other four of Tania's friends we had over for the evening at my flat in Kherson.
That day, I received an e-mail from my friend in Odessa. She told me she had contated Lyubov Sayko online via Lyubov's site on Vkontakte, Marry Cherry, http://vk.com/id188798192. Lyubov had tried to recruit her to make money off of men like me for chat and for meetings. Needless to say, I was surprised as her sister Tania seemed genuinely affectionate towards me. Tania had told me Lyubov ran a dating site that was strictly for "translation" services. I had questioned Tania over and over again if she was paid for chat or meetings with me - she got very angry when I would ask her and called this kind of girl "disgusting." All I had was an e-mail from my friend with the accusation, I had no real concrete proof at that point.
I questioned Lyubov about her job and she told me in front of her ssiter and her friends she was a project manager. This was in strict contrast to my friend's e-mail that said Lyubov Sayko was the Director of a dating agency scamming men illegally (as dating fraud is illegal in the Ukraine, and most countries).
That evening Tania announced to all her friends and her sister at dinner we would be married in a year or two. Tania seemed genuinine in her intentions to me. All her friends and sister were on board and seemed happy of Tania's announcement.
The next day, I received another e-mail from my friend saying that my relationship with Tania is just about money and gifts - as soon as I left town Tania would cut off all contant we me. Again, I was in love, Tania told all her friends and sister in public we would be married in a year or two, so it was difficult for me to believe. After all, this would mean not only her sister, but all her friends were in on the scam too. Was it possible all Tania's friends were scamming me? They were all playing me for money and gifts for Tania?
At the end of my trip, Tania seemed genuinely sad to see me go. So once again, this was in contrast to my friend's e-mails - also, since my friend was an ex girlfriend I had dated previously, maybe there was just some jealousy? I still had no concrete proof at that point.
When I got back to Odessa, I was stranded for a couple days due to a flight mix up. My friend e-mailed me the conversation - screen shot of her correspondence with Lyubov Sayko. There was no denying it - it was all there in black and white. Lyubov Sayko was the Director of a dating agency. Lyubov Sayko was using Vkontakte - through the site she created - Marry Cherry to recruit women to make money on chat, visits, and scam men. It is 100% fact.
I noticed Tania had hidden all her friends on Facebook and Vkontakte when I got on the computer. I also noticed Tania had set up a new fake profile on Vkontakte with her best friend Inna and the guy I always suspected was her boyfriend (Nikita), Tanya Nikipelova, http://vk.com/id200784539. I confronted Tania and she denied all, said my friend was lying, and got very angry with me. Tania said again she was not paid for chat or meeting with men.
When I arrirved back in the USA, Tania cut off all communication with me, just like my friend had stated. I blacklisted Tania so she does not do this to other men and removed her from all dating websites. Lyubov Sayko was the director of an agency recruiting girls to scam men. When I blacklisted Lyubov Sayko she was removed from a dating website and then lost her job.
I guess you cannot be the Director of a dating agency scamming men and recruiting girls to commit dating fraud to scam men if you have been identified as a scammer. All was true - Lyubov Sayko and Tania Sayko are scammers - per my knowledge they are criminals per Ukraine law - they are both guilty of dating fraud.
