Ukrainian Pearls (Odessa, Ukraine)Email: [email protected]: 49 year old, white American male, divorced with no children; high income professional seeking marriage partner from Russia or UkraineI met Tanya, a young Ukrainian woman with a 5-year old son, on the Internet in January 2001 through Dating.com, not Date.com. We began corresponding with each other through an interpreter who was employed by Ukrainian Pearls, an introduction and dating service based in Odessa, Ukraine. I paid a 3-month membership fee of $160 for unlimited translation of emails and interpreter for telephone calls. The dating service also provided flower and gift service at a nominal fee. I thought everything looked honest and respectable. I started sending money transfers via Western Union to Tanya for her travel and living expenses in preparation for our first meeting. I also sent her money for the purchase a home personal computer, so we could communicate easier in the future. I send $3500 from March - June 2001 through Western Union. She always "acknowledged" receipt of the money, but never told me how much she received. I was a little suspicious, but ignored it. We met in Odessa, Ukraine in July 2001. I paid Ukrainian Pearls another $2000 for apartment living accommodations, bicycle rentals, driver fees, and interpreter services. During our 2-week visit, Tanya never mentioned anything about the money she supposed received from me. Again, I ignored her silence, but I grew concerned that something was wrong.I returned to America and continued corresponding with Tanya. In August, Tanya informed me by telephone in broken English that she never received the $3500 that I sent her through Western Union. She was so embarrassed about not telling me. She feared losing me. I inquired about the matter further. I emailed Ivan Kretchan, proprietor of Ukrainian Pearls and voiced my complaint. Ivan refused to discuss his business policies with me, even after being a "good customer" from January through August. I pressed the matter again by repeat emails. I also emailed our interpreter about the matter. The interpreter claimed that he translated every email and his boss, Ivan, told him to never disclose to Tanya how much money I had sent her by Western Union. I learned that Ivan always picked up the money at Western Union on behalf of Tanya and never gave the money to Tanya. Ivan also ordered Ruslan, our interpreter, to change the translation of my emails so that Tanya never knew the exact amount of money that I sent her. I ordered an investigation from Western Union, but they were unable to produce documentation that was sufficient to prosecute Ukrainian Pearls for attempted embezzlement. I never heard from Ivan again. He fired Ruslan for insubordination. He visited Tanya at her place of work and verbally chastised her in front of her co-workers for telling me the truth. Tanya was so embarrassed by the entire experience that we separated. I never heard from Tanya or Ukrainian Pearls again.I will never send money again through Western Union for anyone because, in spite of Western Unions "strict policies" about "only designated recipients can receive funds," the truth is that ANYBODY can receive funds on behalf of someone else, if they have enough connections or corruption at the receiving center. Ivan terrorized Tanya into believing that if she told me the truth about the disposition of the money I sent her, she would never see me. This is emotional manipulation of the worst kind. It is evil and nearly impossible to identify until the damage is done. Randy Volkening [email protected]
