Brian Takita and Nadeea Volianova Scam

Carolyn Grace Matteo – Rip Off Report Scam

1) We have knowledge and reason to believe that internet/CL scammers: Brian Takita and Nadeea Volianova posted a false, malicious Rip Off Report about Carolyn Grace Matteo, under the false name, “Natalie”.

2) Volianova and Takita did this in retaliation for Ms. Matteo’s seeking assistance from the Department of Labor Standards Enforcement for payment for work she performed for Nadeea Volianova. Matteo answered a CL ad, was hired, performed the work as requested, but was never paid.

3) Matteo obtained a judgment/order from the Department of Labor requiring Takita to pay. Takita stated to Matteo, “You’ll never see that money.”

4) The report filed against Matteo is malicious and unfounded. The report claims that a non-existent “Natalie” filed a restraining order and police report. There is no evidence that either exist. The report is a result of two criminals: Brian Takita and Nadeea Volianova, taking advantage of an opportunity to harass Matteo anonymously by posting false, derogatory statements  in the absence of any accountability.

5) We have learned that Volianova also scammed Igor Sanaev who provided her with hair/make-up services for which he was never paid.

6) We have knowledge and reason to believe Mr. Takita subsequently hacked Ms. Matteo’s email and purchased a dot com in her name.

Brian Takita and Nadeea Volianova Scam Update – Comic Con 2015

Beware of this individual. Sent death threats. Associated with Brian Takita and Nadeea Volianova who ran CL scam.

Well, yet another year has passed and I still haven’t been paid. Here’s a very brief summary of what happened:

1) I answered an ad on CL to work as an assistant for Nadeea Volianova aka Yana Barsky during Comic Con. (Later learned that Volianova didn’t even have TICKETS to get in to Comic Con! She snuck in.) Most of my job consisted of asking celebrities to pose for photos with her.

2) I performed the duties she requested – above and beyond.

3) When it was time for payment, Volianova, wanted to keep me on for another day. I declined. She stated that her “manager”(whom I later learned was her live-in boyfriend, Brian Takita) was responsible for payment.

4) I contacted Brian Takita. He refused to pay me.

5) I filed a complaint with the Department of Labor Standards Enforcement and won. There is a judgment/order for payment in place.

6) Mr. Takita states, and I quote, “You’ll never see that money.”

7) I then received death threats, via email, from a Mr. Ito Kobiashi.

8) I learned about a year later that one of these three individuals retaliated by posting a FALSE, MALICIOUS RIP OFF REPORT about me.

9) This false, malicious RIP OFF REPORT has been widely destructive in my life.

10) Beware of these individuals and use caution when responding to CL ads. Get everything in writing and know a bit about the individuals with whom you are dealing BEFORE you get into a situation such as this.

11) If you, or someone you know, has had a similar experience with any of the aforementioned individuals please contact me. I continue to take the legal  steps required to collect on this debt.

“Scamlebrities” Brian Takita and Nadeea Volianova: Malicious Con Artists Exposed

040Mr. Takita ran a CL ad in July 2012 and hired a personal assistant to work for 4 days during the San Diego Comic Con, for his “client/live-in partner” Nadeea Volianova (aka Yana Barsky).  Volianova stated that Takita would pay the assistant. Takita failed to pay the assistant and challenged her in stating, “take me to court, you’ll never get paid.”

The assistant’s main responsibilities included: “sneaking” Volianova into industry events for which she lacked credentials, “sneaking” her into Comic Con for which she had no tickets, and then asking “celebrities” if Volianova could have her photo taken with them.

Since then, Mr. Takita, Volianova and “friend” Ito Kobiashi have harassed the assistant as follows:

1) Sent death threats (per Ito Kobiashi alleged on behalf of the Russian Mafia)

2) Filed a false and defamatory Rip Off Report

3) Maliciously purchased a domain name in the assistant’s name and an additional domain name that knowingly infringed on the assistant’s trademarks and intellectual property rights.

4) Hacked her email

* * * Be on the look-out for these individuals. * * *Use caution when answering Craig’s List ads.

Don’t let scammers like Takita, Volianova (Barsky), and Kobiashi bully you.

Click on the link below to read the NOTICE OF PAYMENT DUE – the Labor Commissioner’s Order, Decision or Award served to Mr. Takita and dated February 13, 2013. To date, Mr. Takita has failed to respond to the notice.

Death Threats From ITO KOBIASHI (Updated Version)

Ito Kobiashi - The man who sent me 2 Death Threats via my blog comments.

Well, the saga with Brian Takita continues. Please keep in mind that this blog wouldn’t exist if Mr. Takita had simply paid me for the services I provided to his client – Nadeea Volianova (aka Yana Barsky). I answered an ad Mr. Takita placed on Craig’s List.  To date, I have not been paid for the services I provided to his client, Nadeea Volianova, during the 4 days I worked for her, as her “personal assistant” in July 2012, during the San Diego Comic Con.

I have a case open with the Department of Labor Standards Enforcement. We have a 2nd hearing in February. Mr. Takita failed to show up to the 1st. When the deputy phoned him, Mr. Takita denied knowing of me, denied hiring me, denied that I worked for his client.  When the deputy asked him about the photographs I took, the text messages exchanged, and the emails (from Mr. Takita, himself)  confirming that I did, in fact, work for him Mr. Takita stated, “Those photos are useless.” The deputy pointed out to Mr. Takita that he just incriminated himself.  (P.S. Mr. Takita is using the “useless” photos I took of his client Nadeea around the web – despite not having the right to do so.) I digress.

Meanwhile, a lot has happened that I haven’t blogged about. I have knowledge, evidence and reason to believe that Mr. Takita has been harassing me online, through purchases, fake emails, etc.  Tonight I received 5 harassing comments on my blog – all awaiting approval. I approved 2 of them that I believe the public should see because they are death threats allegedly from “the Russian Mafia.”   The comments are from:   ITOKOBIASHI@YAHOO.COM  I have knowledge and reason to believe Ito is a friend to both Brian Takita and Nadeea Volianova. The “picture” of the kind of individual Brain Takita REALLY IS, is becoming clearer.

Ito Kobiashi MySpace


I have since disabled the comment function as I was receiving many harassing comments from Mr. Brian Takita and/or his “associates”.  Bottom line is – you can’t hire people, have them work for you and not pay them. It’s illegal.  Had Mr. Takita done the right thing and paid me in the first place – this blog wouldn’t exist. I’m BAFFLED at Mr. Takita’s ability to rationalize what he has done and attempt to portray ME in the light of the WRONG DOER.  I’m not a psychologist but it seems to me there is a major problem here.

The fact that Mr. Ito Kobiashi would go so far as to make DEATH THREATS to me, an individual he has never met, regarding a situation for which he has no FACTS other than those alleged by his so-called “friend” Mr. Takita (or perhaps Nadeea)  is disturbing. But, more disturbing is the fact that, as a friend, Mr. Takita (or Nadeea) would so grossly misrepresent THIS CASE to Mr. Kobiashi as to cause Mr. Kobiashi to put his reputation on the line. If Mr. Kobiashi knew the TRUTH.  If he saw the emails, the texts, the photos, the DOLSE file – the only individual he would be angry with would be the individual who misrepresented the facts to him – whether that be Mr. Takaita, or Nadeea Volianova. It seems that Mr. Kobiashi is a better friend to Mr. Takita and/or Nadeea than either of them is to him…

Thank you for stopping by. I hope my blog will spread awareness and prevent others from being scammed as I was.



Nadeea Volianova – How Many People Has She Scammed?

Nadeea Volianova got her hair and make-up done by Igor Sanaev and failed to pay for the services.

Nadeea Volianova got her hair and make-up done by Igor Sanaev and failed to pay for the services.

While Googling I found another link referencing Nadeea Volianova as a scam artist. In this post the poster states that they caught her sneaking into the Golden Globes. When I was hired as her assistant for Comic Con she did the same.  She failed to pay me for the job I did. Then, she, or her live-in boyfriend, Brian Takita, posted a false, malicious Rip Off Report under my name, and I received death threats from their “friend” Ito Kobiashi after initiating (and winning) a claim with the Department of Labor Standards Enforcement.  To date, I have not been paid.

Nadeea is a fraud and is not 26. As you can see around the eyes she looks old. She crashes awards shows and owes people lots of money. She is a fake. Even her website is fake. We caught her sneaking into the Golden Globes this year and she is a master of disguise. She is a scam artist here are the links. Her real name is Yana Barsky



Nadeea Volianova – Thief Scams Again!

Nadeea Volianova got her hair and make-up done by Igor Sanaev and failed to pay for the services.

I just Googled: “Nadeea Volianova Scam” and came across another incident similar to my experience.

I’m obviously not the only individual scammed by this individual.

Apparently, some poor guy (Igor Sanaev) did her hair and make-up and she failed to pay for the services.

Here’s the link to his post:


(Below is the copied content from his post on StarStagram)

Scam Alert: Ito Kobiashi, Brian Takita, Nadeea Volianova – Death Threat Email

I answered an ad on CL and took a 4-day job as an assistant to a female by the name of Nadeea Volianova during Comic Con, San Diego. I was scammed. Nadeea Volianova stated that her live-in boyfriend/manager, Brian Takita, was responsible for payment. Mr. Takita refused to pay me.I informed both parties that I would initiate a claim with the Department of Labor Standards Enforcement. I did and I won. There is an order/judgment in place for Mr. Takita to pay. Mr. Takita has stated, “You’ll never see that money.”In retaliation for my initiating the claim either Mr. Takita himself, or Nadeea Volianova posted a false and malicious Rip Off Report under my name. Additionally, I have received death threats from one of their friends – Ito Kobiashi. I’ve attached the threats here. Interestingly, Mr. Kobiashi sends another email now that a few years have passed, alleging he ” would never make a death threat.” Unfortunately, for Mr. Kobiashi, I have saved the original CL ad, all the messages exchanged between myself and Volianova and myself and Takita, along with all the emails.When the DOL order amount due me is paid in full, and when the false, malicious  Rip Off Report posted under the false name of “Natalie” is removed, I will remove this blog. I only created this blog because I was scammed. You people are not going to intimidate me. Eventually, you will be brought to justice because I’m going to continue seeking justice.

Mr. Kobiashi’s emails are below. In the first he asks if I “care about living”. In the second he threatens to kill me. In the third he denies meeting, knowing, or contacting me and alleges he wants to resolve this matter, “peacefully and respectfully.” All three emails were sent from the same email address.

Again, Mr. Kobiashi, I’ve been asking for 3 years to be paid, and for the false, malicious, Rip Off Report to be removed. The ball has always been in Brian Takita’s court. Mr. Takita can contact the Department of Labor Standards Enforcement to pay his debt.

Hello. My name is Ito Kobiashi and I am listed in your complaint. I can only say that I have never met you nor ever contacted you in any way. I also would never make any death threats. If you did receive any threatening emails from my email address, it is probably written by some one else with out my knowledge. I do know both Nadeea and B. Takita but do not have any involvement with this issue. I have recently asked Nadeea and Brian to pay you so this blog can be taken down. With the proper negotiations, I can get this resolved. Let me know if you want to work this out in a respectful and peaceful manner. I think you already have my email address.


 Yes, Mr. Kobiashi, I already have your email address.

UPDATE: Brain Takita & Nadeea Volianova ~ “Scamlebrities”?

To date, I still have not been paid for services rendered to Nadeea Volianova during Comic Con. Nadeea alleged that Brian Takita (her then boyfriend) was her “manager” and that he would pay me. I took the matter to the Department of Labor Standards enforcement and won a judgment against Mr. Takita but Mr. Takita has squirmed out of his responsibility, for now. Mr. Takita previously stated, ” Go ahead and sue me. You’ll never see the money I owe you.”  Beware of doing business with this individual.



Brian Takita: CL Scam Alert Upate

Brian Takita

Beware of hiring or being hired by Brian Takita.

To date he has not paid his employee for the work she did as a personal assistant for his alleged “client”, later to be revealed as his “live-in-girlfriend” Nadeea Volianova aka Yana Barsky.  A judgment was issued by the Department of Labor in favor of  the plaintiff on April 22, 2013 for work she performed in July of 2012 during the San Diego Comic Con.  A Takita “associate” sent death threats to the plaintiff as a result of her pursuing the matter and sharing her experience. Takita and/or associate retaliated by hacking plaintiff’s email, filing a fraudulent Rip Off Report against plaintiff, and purchasing domain names in her name.

To date Mr. Takita has not paid  the assistant. We have knowledge and reason to believe that Takita and Volianova together orchestrated this CL scam.  To  learn more about this situation please read my previous posts.

Comic Con Alert ~ Nadeea Volianova aka Yana Barksy

Nadeea's New Look  If you’re in San Diego for Comic Con 2013 be on the look out for these individuals: Nadeea Volianova, Brian Takita and Heather Anne Scott. All three individuals are involved in a 2012 Comic Con SCAM. 

Mr. Brian Takita, acting as “manager” to alleged “singer/actress” (chuckle) Nadeea Volianova, ran a CL ad hiring an assistant for her. Long story short ~ after working FOUR DAYS as a SLAVE to the yellow-glove-wearing, germ-phobic Volianova, the assistant was never paid. The assistant raised the issue with the Department of Labor and got an order in her favor. Takita refused the certified demand letter sent to his house in Topanga Canyon, and till this day refuses to pay the assistant. 

Volianova got off the hook pretty easily. This all fell on Takita but truth of the matter is that Volianova should have made good and paid the assistant. She chose not to do the right thing. But, not all is quite right in Volianova land ~ if you know what I mean. One can’t expect Perrier from a faucet. 

Volianova has as many personalities as she does costumes. You’ll find her sneaking into both Comic Con itself, as well as all the after parties. She’ll have someone (anyone, really) take a photo of her with whatever “celebrity” she can find. She’ll then fabricate an elaborate “story” about the encounter.

But, not all fall prey to this scamlebrity. There are several security guards from LA who, if they recognize her “disguise” will have her tossed out of the parties. If it weren’t for her total lack of talent and Cruella DeVille personality she’d probably rise to the D-list.

I’ve included a current photo of Volianova. Click through some of the other posts on this site to see more; as well as photos of Brian Takita, Heather Anne Scott and oh, how could I forget ITO KOBIASHI who sent me death threats for posting this blog.  Nice bunch…

On April 22, 2013, the Labor Commissioner issued an Order, Decision, or Award in favor of the plaintiff, and a judgment in the amount of $2,875.01 in the Superior Court against Mr. Brian Takita for hiring an employee and refusing to pay her.

Mr. Takita failed to appear at any of the Department of Labor Hearings, and has neglected to contact the plaintiff to arrange payment of the debt.

Comic Con is right around the corner.  Unsuspecting CL job seekers beware.  Brian Takita and/or Heather Scott (Brian Takita Assistant in 2012) may be running ads in San Diego, CA in search of a “personal assistant” for  Nadeea Volianova  ~ a Russian “singer/actress” aka Yana Barsky.

In 2012 I answered a CL ad, placed by Mr. Brian Takita. I was hired and worked for 4 days as a personal assistant for Nadeea Volianova aka Yana Barsky.  Mr. Takita never paid me.  I opened a case with the Department of Labor and a judgment has been issued in my favor. Along the way Mr. Takita’s associate,  Ito Kobiashi sent me death threats. Be on the look out for these individuals.  When answering CL ads be sure to get everything in writing. Get physical addresses of those involved  and have all parties sign an agreement as to the rate and means of payment for your services.
