  • I remember listening to that bbc podcast series about this bitch and it was very good indeed.
    I hate grifters. I don’t mind admitting that I myself was once the victim of one. I’d happily string up the person who did me over and this piece of garbage seems to have got off lightly for the pain and mental anguish she caused.
    She was not paid for the bbc production as it was not authorised. It irks me to think that Netflix were happy to reward this criminal.
    If any of our readers like movies about grifters, one of the best ones ever made is The Spanish Prisoner, directed by David Mamet (1997).

    Typical Russian. Lie, cheat, steal, and think you did nothing wrong, because all Russians are the same. The US should deport this criminal back where she come from, she can go live the high life in Russia.

    This mongrel gets so much money for being a filthy criminal and many a good person goes empty-handed. I know a woman in Kyiv who adopted a bunch of street dogs to give them a home. There will never be a movie or series made about her.
    Indeed, we live in a sick world.

    • Glorifying crime always sells better than some good natured story about human kindness. The West seem to have a fascination with despicable evil people, I can never understand why.
