Anatasiadate.com Review by Paul

Hello Krystyna,

Please let me introduce myself. My name is Paul and I am from Mexico City.
I have had some scam experiences from Ukraine (Lugansk and Odessa). I would like to ask you if there is a possibility that real Ukrainian girls are really serious to marry a Western man. Where and how we can meet them?

What I can say about Anatasiadate.com services:

AnastasiaDate

  • All Ukrainian girls registered on Anatasiadate.com I met were fake, not real.
  • All the girls are too young and they are not serious about to get married.
  • Girls pretend not to speak English in order to get an interpreter and get money.
  • That is the business; they receive the 50% of the fee of what the interpreters receive for their jobs.
  • The others business are, high rates of taxi drivers (must of the girls have their own taxi driver), expensive restaurants, and ask for gifts.
  • Anastasiadate.com is not a company; it is a group of local agencies that get the girls. The business on line are the letters, chats and video chats. We need to pay for all of that.
  • Most of the letters are not written by the girls, there are many girls that work for these agencies as translators. I saw them when I got into one of these agencies in Odessa.

Thanks Krystyna and I really appreciate your help.
Have a great day.

Paul

Russian dating expert Elena Petrova writes that

Online Dating Scams Affect 99 Percent Of Male Users Of Internet Personals, Millions Of Dollars Are Lost To Fake ‘Russian Women’
According to Elena, men using online dating sites regularly receive emails from ‘Russian women’ offering friendship, love and marriage. Most users simply disregard such emails but some people are curious and can be sucked in.

Elena warns, “99% of those emails are hoaxes designed by professional Internet criminals. All is fake — letters, photos, and feelings. The texts of the letters are prewritten and often sent and received by a database-driven computer script.”

“The only real thing in the whole story is the money that a man sends to someone in Russia. The people receiving the money often don’t know they are part of a fraud scheme; they simply get a small fee for each transfer they receive. Once someone reports the fraud and the name is black listed by wire transfer companies, the criminals find someone else to receive the money for them.”

Many scams run under dozens of identities and feature different sets of photos, which are often downloaded from the Internet. “Even my own photos were stolen from my site and used in a scam”, says Elena. “Most men cannot tell real Russian women from fake Russian brides. The wise thing to do is to never send money to anyone you haven’t met in person.”

You lost money and time with this scam site. My advice is to be careful in the International online dating industry. The first sign of scam is asking for money. However, in your case scam is the dating agency. That means they make fake profiles on their site and develop a nice, promising communication with a male customer so that he buys more and more credits.

My next advice is be optimistic. I know it is not easy. Optimism is also important for success, isn’t it? I have experienced that most Western men are scared about the fact of getting been scammed. This fear does not give them the opportunity to be happy about their communication with the Ukrainian woman who can be their match for life.

Online dating is like offline: sometimes you have luck, sometimes you do not have luck… sometimes you meet a woman for life after just two days, sometimes you have to look for your match a few years. I have heard about negative and positive experiences. And I made bad and good online dating experience, as well.

I would recommend you to use a dating agency that has more positive reviews on the Internet like ElenasModels or A Foreign Affair. If you like more personal approach, try matchmaking agencies like Mordinson.
I am contact with this agency (especially with Michael) and know that they do an interview with each woman who wants to use their services. Therefore, you have really a very little chance to be scammed by fake women with serious intentions.

    Dear Paul

    What you’re writing is a huge pile bullshit and some things are simply not true.

    I registered with Anastasiadate and based on my experience I would say that all profiles are REAL. This is also what Daria German (who is a renowned dating expert albeit also paid by Anastasiadate) is saying and she has a reputation to lose.

    Now, Christina is right in pointing out that an 18 year old might write that she’s serious, but 18 year olds are generally too young too understand what serious means. If you don’t use your brain here, then you cannot be helped.

    Many people in the Ukraine speak English on a very very basic level. Including very many girls. The good news here is that everybody believes in Google Translate. Google translate has limitations and that’s why i believe that the translation services for emails are good value.

    Anastasiadate becomes problematic in regards to the premium services like chat, video chat and camshare. They cost 0.4$, 0.8$ and 2.4$ per minute and are definitely overpriced if we assume the girl wouldn’t get a cut in it. Student girls are much more available for a chat than say girls which have a regular job. And honestly, the thought that I’m helping a nice good-looking girl to get through college by using those overpriced services makes me sleep better than the thought that Anastasiadate is pocketing the whole sum.

    Contact girls through a love note. My profile is well written and girls responding to my love note, based their responses on my profile and asked my questions. This initiated the conversation on a much better footing than when the translators sent me their standard letters first.

    Exchanging emails is nice, but at some point you need to take the relationship to next level. This involves one of the pricier options. I considered those chats as informal dates. A good date normally lasts 3-5 hours or 200-300 minutes.
    And you normally need at least two to three dates that both parties know they are really interested and the girl feels comfortable to take the conversation offline. Now I invite everyone to the math for themselves, but if you’re unlucky, you might end up spending a shit load of money.

    But let me tell you about my case. I have online dating experience and that’s why I put up a well written profile, with pictures appealing to women. And maybe I also got lucky. The lady I’m going out with now wrote in her profile between the lines: “hey, i’m not only stunningly good looking, I also have brains, talent and success. I’m not exposing my body more than I have to”. I found that incredibly appealing and attractive. During the chats i asked her for her last name and where she is working. Then I looked her up. As her name is the equivalent to Jane Smith, looking her up on Facebook and VKontakte proved to be futile. But with some advanced Google skills (you write her name in cyrillic and you use russian search terms). Knowing that she’s got some success, I finally found photos of her in some local online newspapers and they matched.

    I then contacted her company for her contact details. I just saw that her company opened up a Facebook profile and asked them how I could get in contact with her. The media intern responded that she sees what she can do and 10 minutes later I was in contact with my lady. She doesn’t speak much English however and as I speak even less Russian, I consider this a serious challenge. Google translate helps, especially the pronounce button.

    Those are my two kopeks of thought hope it is helpful

  2. Thank you for your feedback. At AnastasiaDate we strive to provide the best customer service to our clients 24/7.

    It’s not by chance that AnastasiaDate has become the world’s leading Russian-American Introduction Agency. For over fifteen years AnastasiaDate’s constant commitment to honesty, integrity and hard work on behalf of her members has allowed the industry to raise its standards. The history of AnastasiaDate has been one of providing clients with genuine, valuable service in the face of other less scrupulous Russian dating agencies whose iniquity tarnishes the reputation of all.

    AnastasiaDate is the first and only agency to tackle the issues of internet dating fraud and anti-scam head-on. There are other Russian singles and mail order brides agencies that conduct honest business. However, in the online introductions industry simple honesty isn’t enough to make a real difference to the consumer with regards to dating fraud. Industry professionals must be proactive and fight scam directly, and here’s why:

    No agency is an island, and no mail order bride agency can operate independently. All major agencies depend on networks of dozens, (or in the case of AnastasiaDate over a thousand) smaller dating agencies to register ladies (Russian women and Ukraine women), perform services for members, and fight scam. Whenever a consumer deals with any given Russian or Ukraine brides agency they should keep in mind that their agency depends on numerous other affiliated agencies for scam and internet fraud protection.

    If other Russian ladies’ agencies are less scrupulous (scammers), or if a particular Russian or Ukraine woman is disingenuous, the client suffers regardless of the integrity of their home mail order brides agency. Following this, a particular agency simply “being honest” is not enough to protect consumers. What is required is vigilance supported by forceful action against scam. Such attention is the pillar of AnastasiaDate scam and anti-scam operation.

    AnastasiaDate scam and anti-scam unit has spent over a million dollars implementing an industry-wide business system designed to ferret out less than honest agencies suspected of internet dating scams while helping upright and trustworthy agencies prosper. Creating this comprehensive anti-scam watchdog system to protect and serve our members is a Herculean task as well as a significant financial investment. But AnastasiaDate’s scam and anti-scam operation firmly believes that the long term survival of our industry depends on stepping up to enforce discipline against dating fraud on the industry level. At the heart of the AnastasiaDate’s scam and anti-scam unit’s success is the protection she provides her members by establishing and asserting an ethical standard on the numerous Eastern European affiliate partners she deals with.

    If you have any comments or questions regarding our service, please feel free to contact us anytime at: (800) 356-3130 or through our website where you can also reach a LiveChat operator.

    Thank you
