Ukrainian dating story by a scammed man


I would like to tell you about my 3 different trips to Ukraine. I like many foreign men sent many letters and spent a lot of time in chat on the site which I might add is very expensive. I started to use Anastasia site more than 18 months ago.

In chat the lady I first felt attracted to was very explicit and made sexual comments on how she liked to be f…..ed and what she would do when I arrived. But the truth is when I met her I was told by a translator her mother was ill and she had to leave Odessa and go to the countryside. But she would be back in a few days and everything will be good but when she came back I had another meeting with her and a translator.

I told her through the translator I would not meet her anymore with a translator and she agreed to this. So the next day we met and went shopping. She was very cold and distant to me. When we went for a meal she chose the most expensive thing on the menu and when I questioned this she got angry and asked me for 300 uah. But I refused her request. I did not hear from her again – surprise surprise…

My next visit was another lady from Odessa. I spent a week in Odessa and we had 4 meetings the same pattern arose expensive meals and expensive taxi fares. So once again no love, romance or passion – just money to be spent. My third trip was even more disturbing: I traveled to Odessa again with the intention of proposing to my lady who she asked to do to prove my commitment and love. I bought a engagement ring for around 5oo dollars and presented it to her.

The translator told me she could not give me answer she needed time to think about my offer. But at least on my last day she gave me her email address. When I returned back in the UK we exchanged over 60 emails which I was happy with. Then she dropped a bomb shell and told me I don’t spend enough money in chat on the site and she could not communicate with me anymore ..
So as you can see I do not believe that there are genuine women on Anastasia site. Just a bunch of scammers and devious people in the agencies that these women are registered with. My friend is a translator in Odessa and he used to work for Anastasia as a translator and in his own honest words told me that all the women on Anastasia are just using foreign men to fund their lives because their salaries are so low.

So please be warned – don’t use this site! Just learn some Russian language and go to Kiev and meet normal girls who don’t belong to dating sites. This is the best way to find a wife in Ukraine.
Best of luck guys! Be careful ………..

  3. 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.

    How do you ferret out not so honest agencies? It would almost impossible to police each single agency that you contract out with. The government is rife with corruption, so it goes to follow that the businesses goes right along with them. Even law enforcement can be bribed. The problem is that there is no rule of law and with the economic instability, the situation is not going to improve.

  5. Hi must agree with many of the assessment as regards the site after 6month of writing and chatting the date was set then I contacted a illness and couldn’t travel no futher messages or contact then having talked to others that have also tried this site the same result money mad over priced and yes it a scam they used their personal phones to over come the language problem perfect but no money being made and very cold and distance to ward men that about sum up the attitude of this site it’s a business plus a big scam our survey estimated that only 8 per cent find their perfect women the rest are fraudster and the law just ignore the problem
