Second scam entry I just found listed by another person: http://marriageagencyscams.com/Girls/TonyaKorovkina.html
I have been corresponding with Tonya off and on for over two
years and I finally decided to meet her. Her requests initially were normal for
the girls here – gifts, then money from time to time. I met her in Kiev on
October 14th along with her best friend. We planned on staying in Kiev until the
19th and then going to her city of Zaporozhie after that. Tonya insisted we not
use the agency for anything because the agency would make everything more
expensive. First of all, she had a ”private taxi” the whole time which I was
forced to pay for – the” private taxi” by my estimate was about double what a
normal taxi would be. It cost me thousands of dollars alone just for this taxi.
I did some research online and found this was a friend of hers and I was told a
“friend of the family” so it explains the expense. Tonya insisted on getting
engaged and buying engagement rings – it was the purpose of my trip so I
agreed…thousands more dollars. She then refused to spend any time alone with me
or even so much as give me a peck on the lips – a girl I am “engaged” to? I
thought maybe it was still early so I waited on this some. She promised we would
spend time alone together in her city of Zaporozhie once we were there.
Suddenly, she notified me we had to leave for Zaporozhie because her university
called and she had a surprise exam. So we left for her city. Upon coming to her
city, she informed me it was not safe to go outside my hotel, so I was to stay
there and wait for her whenever she would come. She would get very angry with
me if I did not pick up the phone right away. I started to feel like a captive.
Then she introduced me to her brother who hit me up for $ 120,000 to buy a
business and took me to a building to meet the owner. He informed me his
father-in-law is ex Russian mafia and he needs to have a business to marry the
man’s daughter – talk to the Russian mafia made me very uneasy. I explained to
her brother I was not willing to give him $120,000. Next Tonya took me to meet
her mom, who within one hour of meeting me promptly took me to a fur coat store
and had Tonya try on fur coats before dinner. They pressured me to together to
buy Tonya a $3700 fur coat and I refused.
I had been told all along I
would meet Tonya’s father who was unemployed currently. Mysteriously, Tonya’s
father was “out of town on business” (what business – he does not work).
Furthermore, the mother supposedly makes $200 a month. However, Tonya has more
clothes and expensive jewelry than any girl I have ever met in the Ukraine. The
parents own their flat, bought the brother a flat, have a Mercedes, and bought
the brother a Chevrolet. They are currently renovating their flat and adding a
balcony and even redoing the kitchen – where does all the money come from? I
cannot say for sure they are involved in organized crime, but I can say I do not
know where the money comes from and it made me very very uncomfortable and start
to fear for my safety.
At dinner, Tonya told her mom I was giving her
brother money to start a business (which was not true). I was being railroaded
into giving these people money and I was fearful of what would happen to me if I
would not cooperate. Tonya was very cold the whole time, kept making excuses not
to spend time alone with me , and refused to kiss me goodnight even going as far
as saying, “not tonight, not tomorrow, and not the next day” (which would be the
duration of my trip…and this is the girl I am “engaged” to?). After not
cooperating with giving them money for the fur coat and the business, I was
informed on my way back to Kiev, the “private taxi” we had the whole time would
not be able to take me to the airport and I would be passed to some unknown
driver half way. It sounded very much like a kidnapping or worse to me….so in
the middle of the night I fled the city without saying goodbye.
have further established contact with Tonya in order to gain more insight into
all. She has asked me for a lot more money – always asking for money. Also, I
have done some research on vkontakte and sure enough, I found her boyfriend.
This was all a big scam for money. Please delete this girls’ profile before
someone else loses a lot of money, suffers a broken heart, or worse - possibly
even falls victim to organized crime.
I have also contacted Tonya under
a different username to see if she gives me the same answers to her questions
about herself. All was a lie – she originally told me she was a virgin…now she
claims her first “sex partner” was when she was 17. She also said she has no
boyfriend (which technically, since I reconnected with her just for the sake of
getting more evidence for possible criminal prosecution for fraud, we would
technically still be “engaged”).
Also, the ring I bought her magically
disappeared within days of my departure. Obviously, she has sold it. She has
told me two different stories on this – one the workman in her flat must have
taken it and two is that she just lost it.
This girl is cold and
calculating – obviously she was trained well by her parents to scam men. Maybe
this is where all the money comes from. She is like “La Femme Nakita”…I am truly
scared someone will be seriously injured or killed.
E-mail she sent me on 10/21/2011 when I fled her city - feel free to contact me.

future, love and relations. When feelings started you just broke
