Read—-Beware ALL! Only Lads has LOTS of Russian Twink (18-28 yr old) romantic scammers! I met named Ivan Lampa aka or Ivan Baronov 23, then said 25. Someone who seemed nice, then he said let’s go to email. If I only knew, this was the start of trouble. We chatted via email, once a day for over two months. It started with getting to k ow you, then moved to his romantic connections, sending typical outdoor and common photos. Then after two months, he said he wanted to leave Russia, as it was not gay friendly he had no friends. He said he wanted to move to me and become my partner, BUT he said he did not have the necessary at funds for a Tourist Visa, could I help! First it was $2800 for airfare, medical, and visa. Then he said he needed $5000 to show he had enough funds for the 99 day trip. I said how about you dad or aunt, no they had little. The kicker was he said the U.S. Embassy rep had made an error, and he needed 3K more (8K) total, it sounded larking, then I looked on US Embassy website about fraud scammer, wow it was a dead match story! I was upset and sad that Ivan would be a fraud scammer. He Skype several times, his face matched on Skype. I was worried, I asked to see his Tourist Visa, and documents, he said your calling me a lair! I said you must prove, he sent me his Russian Passport (4” x6”) card with photo, ink stamps, etc. I thought if looked suspicious, but how do you check if it’s active with his name? I chance, also the U.S. Embassy could post the Russian citizen requirement for bank funds, it much of anything. I tried to call out U.S. Embassy in Moscow, no answer, and the U.S. State Department to get details on requirements, I never got a return call.

In the end, Ivan Baronov (he said was his real name), sent a final email professing his love and that he was going to leave Russia for me, I think it was a story. I realized his story had holes, his aunt in Istanbul Turkey, I bet was a mule handling the money….i tried to stop the 5K I sent, my stomach did not feel right, the Deniz Bank could only ask for her to return the money, guess what, she ducked the calls and opened a new account!!! Beware, the romantic scammers are smooth operators!!!!! catch me if you can!

In summary, I would not recommend Only Lads to a friend.
