Aleksey Kanashin – Scammer

Aleksey Kanashin

I feel like such a fool for being duped by this guy for as long as I was, he is a very slick customer, I at least had to presence of mind to have him checked out by a private investigater before sending any money.

He is unlike most scam artists he does actually read your emails to him, he answers some of the content of your email to him but does not answer direct questions. Having not found him on any known scam databases I thought I would post here all that I can in order to help avoid someone elses heart, mind and bank balance from being damaged.

Below you will find his emails and pictures sent to me in the order they were received, along with a copy of the background check performed on him and a copy of his fake passport. He contacted through

It is very beautiful country, I read about it in books much.
By the way I and did not speak about books to you that I like to read. Basically I read a fantasy and novels.
When you get a grasp and you understand all essence of product to be
immersed in the world, that world that to us the writer represents, with you such was not???
Last book which I have read it there was a War and World N.A.Tolstogo, you
know this product??? This very well-known product of marks of times and peoples.
Many read it, I read it already second time, I very much like this book so it is
beautifully told about love and the truth about that war that was in those years, it is very beautiful book.
Unfortunately I did not read any book in English because to me did not come across such books though I very much would like to read even one.
You can translate the texts, I understand all, but I will write to you in English well??? I want that I had a practice!!!!
I very much love sports, I from the childhood went to Rugby football, I very assiduously was engaged acted at many school competitions, but then I
have thrown it and was engaged in track and field athletics, now I visit a training hall and in the mornings I do jog, I want to hold the body in the form.
But I very much am pleasant like football and Rugby football on the TV when
there are championships we with friends gather and together we look them, it is very cheerful. I think so many people all over the world do.
I did not speak you about one my hobby, it is fishing. You like to fish???
It is very interesting, we very much frequently go with friends on the river to fish. At us the river Volga proceeds, probably you know it, there there is a
lot of fish, certainly it too is difficult for catching, but very interesting.
Sometimes it is necessary to rise early in the morning approximately at 4 o’clock in the morning then still all city sleeps, but there are more chances to
catch a lot of fish, I very much love a fish, by the way my mum is very tasty
can to prepare for her, I too study is tasty to prepare for me my mum learns!!!

Letter 4

Thanks for your letter my friend [REMOVED].

The my dear friend I is very glad to receive your letter)) As your mood?
You know, right after that as I have read your letter, to me it became very joyful on a shower, even when I have seen it I already was glad.

My friend I wished to ask you what films you love???
Romantic or fantastic, adventure???
I like all kinds of this genre and I look films on mood. But most of all I like a film ⌠Latter Days■.
It was a beautiful film.
It is about two gay guys that met each other in a complex where they both
stay. Due to circumstances they could not be together and one guy left the
city and moved to another city far from each other. They still love each
other over that distance and keep on thinking of each other. As time
passes, they meet up again, that was so beautiful.
You saw it a film, this very beautiful cinema.
My friend and you love what music???
I love music that it did my day more cheerfully and more vigorously.
When at me bad mood I listen to lyrical music, you know I I plunge into these histories which I hear in songs and I forget that world that surrounds me and I understand that a life very good thing. To me it becomes very good.
Very well that in sew lives there is a music after all without it there would be no much that we now have, so it not seems to you?
By the way and you are able to play any musical instrument? I play a guitar, I in the childhood studied and now even I compose songs, but nobody hears them except my friends, but it very much is pleasant to them:))) Can be when I will play also to you:))

I wish to ask you, what you search in relations between two people??
I consider that first of all it there should be a love, whether not so? Sex is certainly very important in relations, but it will not be such bright and not forgetting if two persons do not love each other.
I think that you will be agree with me, but all the same write that you think of it to me it will be interesting to know, after all only so we can find out each other better.
You know I very much would like to write to you still, but unfortunately I should go home, but I will come tomorrow and to write to you well???
I hope to receive from you the answer. It will be interesting to me to know what music to you it is pleasant also what films you look!!!

Private investigators report:

Something is wrong here.

I can’t find the person named ” Aleksey Kanashin”, DOB 12/29/1978 in Saransk town, Mordovia Republic, Russia !!

The address “21 Sverdlova Str., Saransk, 430032” is a tenement house.
The building has 42 different flats. The person named “Aleksey Kanashin” does not live there.

He is the known scam artist!

We’ve checked his profile as “Aleksey Kanashin, DOB 12/29/1978 from Cheboksary city, Chuvashia
Republic, Russia” two months ago for another customer.
His home address was “12 Gagrina street, Cheboksary, 428017” (also bogus).

We’ve received the copy of his Russian passport (ID) by request. You can see it in attachment.
I’ve checked this passport through the database of Main Passport-VISA
Department Russian MVD and got the following result:

“The passport’s number 88 03 081088 was never issued in Russian
Federation. The copy passport you have supplied is a forgery – it is
not printed in the format we use.”

Most scammers lie about the city they live in. They do that to mislead the victims about their true identity.

We have found these scammer’s real location. They send the e-mails from Yoshkar-Ola city, Mari-El Republic.
But the person named “Aleksey Kanashin, DOB 12/29/1978 is not available in Yoshkar-Ola city also.

I advice you to cease the correspondence with scammers.


Well thats everything I have on this guy I hope it helps someone, any replies are welcome but please post them here. My thanks to the administrators of this website for making it posssible to inform all you guys and girls out there, we need to do all we can to combat this type of heartless souless crime.
