LA Times

When 24-year-old Yuliya Kalinina turned to the Internet in search of a husband, she made it absolutely clear what she was looking for in a relationship:

“Green Card Marriage — Will pay $300/month. Total $15,000,” the Russian national living in Los Angeles wrote in an ad placed on the Craigslist website. “This is strictly platonic business offer, sex not involved.”

Just in case any would-be Romeos weren’t taking the hint, she added, “NOT required to live together.”

Kalinina’s direct approach was very attractive, drawing the attention not only of the man who would marry her, but also of agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

After nearly two years of what federal prosecutors allege was a sham marriage, Kalinina and her 30-year-old husband, Benjamin C. Adams, were arrested last week at separate residences.

Prosecutors say Kalinina leased Adams a new Ford Mustang for his trouble.

She also took care of the wedding arrangements: Performing the ceremony was Dmitri Chavkerov, an Internet-ordained minister who also happened to be Kalinina’s live-in boyfriend.

“I’d say it’s a fairly blatant example of marriage fraud,” said Assistant U.S. Atty. Curtis A. Kin, one of the prosecutors on the case.

    A portion of her welfare benefits went to pay for her bogus husbands mustang. It is obvious that these immigrants want to come to the Unites States for more than just a better life. They are full of corrupt intentions and criminal activity in mind. This skank is no different. What a way to start off her new life in America, illegal activity right from the start. With 30 + million of these low life’s running around the country, just makes one wonder what the next generation of leaders and children will be like with illegal aliens breeding like they do and bringing them up with third world ways and means.

  2. SkyPainter says:

    Yep Matthew, that skank should be deported immediately. Oh… by the way… it does not matter what nationality she is. If she breaks our immigration laws… she should be deported back to her country of origin. PERIOD!!!

    I knew of a woman who did marry an illegal for money but they made one big mistake
    they did not live together thus no utility bill in both names no mailing address in both names and so on so they were denied a visa,and the guy did not pay her all of the money. that will teach her.

    The Russian word for female is ???????
    Its symbol is ?
    If you look on her drivers license you will see her sex is ?.
    Without knowledge of Cyrillic, it looks like a symbol for “SPIDER”.
    In this case, it appears to be true.

    I clicked on the link to read more and found out her boyfriend is an illegal alien!

    When confronted by ICE agents months later, the documents state, Kalinina and her boyfriend — the man who performed the marriage ceremony — admitted that the marriage to Adams was a fraud intended to obtain a green card. Marrying her boyfriend would have done nothing to help her immigration status, because he is in the country illegally.

    ya, who would have guessed? Her excuse she didn’t know it was illegal to marry for a green card as evidenced by her 8 stupid ads.

    Marriage fraud is a big problem, we had a similar incident here in Florida. Some jackass lawyer knew what he was doing when he had bums off the street paid 1000$ to act as the fiance of Russian Women just to get them over on K1 visas. The problem with an alien collecting welfare is that you the sponsor of this alien signs a form called the I-864 form which says that you are responsible for the fincancial well being of the alien for a period of up to 10 years or her/him becoming a US citizen. Any alien collecting welfare would cause the sponsor to be liable for coughing up the money the alien used to the federal government.

    Also, what an ugly russian female. I guess the only Russian that could get frisky with her would have to place a russian flag over her face and drink lots of Vodka prior to the act.
