I actually went to a bit of trouble and took my complaint to the very top and there has been a recent development in that story.It looks like I am going to have the last laugh."When I said I went right to the top with a complaint about a Russian scammer, that is exactly what I did, the very top.I ask them, have Australian women never married for reasons other than love?
Other aliases were Alfia Magdeeva, Marina Chumachenko, Vasilisa Schelkonogova, Anna Porfireva, Olga Trophimova, and many others.34-year-old Yuri Lazarev made a set of photos of his wife Anna and was posting them at large Internet personals.
Scammers then initiated correspondence with men pretending to be a single Russian girl looking for a serious relationship.
One could expect that after being scammed Terry would give up on Internet dating and particularly Russian women; quite the opposite.
He continued his search and is currently involved with a Ukrainian girl.
After receiving money, the gang would stop correspondence.
It is believed that the gang, based in Chelyabinsk, Russia, were some of the first dating scammers that used Internet personals to rip off men seeking serious relationship and marriage with Russian women.
Terry continues to have a very high opinion of Russian women and Russians in general, and opposes often applied media stereotypes of Russian women on the Internet, being only gold-diggers and scammers etc.
"I have commented on similar print stories in the past.
I have asked them why they only enjoy labeling and stereotyping Russian and Filipino women on the Internet as all being "mail order brides", immigration scammers, prostitutes, likely slaves, gold diggers or only escaping poverty etc - and not all the Australian women who do the same thing.
