AnastasiaDate Review: It is NOT a dating site. It is a fraud

Here are facts I have collected using AnastasiaDate.com myself:

1. Most of the girls are real, but names are fake. Cannot tell how many because I did not talk to 2,000 of them.

2. The girls are used by the site, given offers of pay with the chance to meet a foreign man who will take them out of their poverty.

3. All girls clearly get paid and several have told me so. The pay is a portion of the “take” that the men spend. That is why the pretty or sexy girls take 30 seconds to respond to a chat and plain Jane girls respond in 5 seconds. The pretty girls know the men will wait and that waiting eats up credits men pay for.

Anastasia Date: Company Definition

AnastasiaDate Review

Anastasia Date is an International online dating platform that was founded in 1993 by a Russian-American couple.

The operator provides services for more than 1 million users with more than 80 million online visitors annually and more than 1.5 million conversations exchanged onsite daily.

4. Several apologized to me because they need money, and they do this dragging out the time to make more money. Those are only there for pay and there is no chance they will actually meet the man even when they say they will.

5. You can tell you are being scammed like this when the girl in chat says “I don’t understand” or “what do you mean”, and you see long delays. Those girls are forcing men to use double the time to repeat what they said the first time, to eat up time.

6. The reports of satisfied customers are fraudulent. Because Krystyna sees a report of a man does not mean he exists. The site makes up these reports and posts them all over the web. This Krystyna is either legitimate and has never met these satisfied customers, or more likely she does not exist, and is herself a scam created by Anastasia to publish Green stars for fake satisfied customers as another clever form of advertising to give the impression of legitimacy.

I send this to see if Krystyna will publish this entire piece and do it in large type, or if she is a “plant” by Elena and a fake who will not publish this.

7. I have actually paid hundreds of dollars in letters and chat several times, until the girls agreed to give me their private email address to avoid the costs and plan a trip and personal meeting. The girls agree so their scam will not be discovered, because they also get paid when the man makes a phone call to get the private contact.

However, on the phone the girls give a fake address, or they give a real address and confirm with one private email and never write again.

8. The site sends out automatic letters purporting to be from the girls. But the girls do not send them, and do no write their own profiles, It is all fraud.

9. The owner Elena in Georgia undertook clever steps to try to hide herself, and instituted a contract form in November 2015 that purports to waive liability for any claims against the site because the fraud is getting very obvious and its girls are now advertising computer sex. But those waivers are uniformly ruled to be unenforceable with allegations of fraud, so she remains personally liable no matter what shell she uses.

Fraud and fake

Elena also commits fraud by representing that she has a US corporation to give legitimacy when that too, is fake.

She is being investigated now for creating fake and misleading information in response to the federal law that is supposed to prevent fraud by men, because the source of the threat to the American public is the deliberate professional scheme of fraud by the site, bilking over $100 million from Americans.

Evidence of fraud by this site using innocent girls has been recorded through letters and screen shots and phone recordings for the past year for the purpose of a potential proceeding against this Elena and her alter egos.

Anastasia Date Review online

10. In March 2016 their price for a phone call when up from $28 to $100 because men are getting wise to the clever chat charges and calling girls quickly to short-cut the charges.

But in those phone calls the translators give deliberately false numbers to force several calls at $100 each and repeat numbers 5 times to drag out the time on the call to end it before a simple phone number or email is exchanged. So it now costs $300 for multiple calls to get one good number.

The only way to avoid that scam is to learn Russian and avoid the translator. Even then the translator takes control and refuses to allow a conversation and adds false translations. They appear to get a bonus for interfering.

11. The site refuses to translate letters as written, and takes out material to prevent couples from meeting. That means some of the women are real and they want to meet men, but they are stopped.

It is NOT a dating site. It is a fraud.

12. The site monitors chats and refuses to allow chat information to go through that could lead to a meeting like, what part of town do you live?

The girl will not be allowed to see those words because it could lead to a meeting. Those girls are genuine, and they will answer, and that is why the site stops the transmissions.

13. A man has a better chance at meeting a genuine girl who wants to get out of war zone like Lugansk or the Moon like Uzbekistan. But no chance to meet a real girl from Kiev or Kharkov. And no one is going to fly to Uzbekistan to meet a girl for lunch. Those girls are being used so the site can advertise high numbers.

14. The pretty girls know they are committing fraud, and get paid for it, and that they will never meet the men they chat with, except for a few renegade girls who may try to meet a man and are then punished by the site for going around the blockades.

And the cruises and trips are no better: the girls get paid as long as they do not create a relationship outside the careful structure of the formal trip. Just like houses of prostitution.

15. The principals of the site, therefore, have created a wide and slick training camp to create thousands of girls who all engage in the same type of prostitution. Al Capone would be jealous because the site makes more money through this fraud than he did robbing banks.

16. The purpose of sites like this one, Krystyna’s, is not to help any man do anything, but an early warning beacon to inform Elena at Anastasia when her fraud scheme is so obvious as it has become since the November disclaimer and the March phone call price increase, that they need to institute damage control to side-step prosecution.

Conclusion

Good luck with that part of your game. Ukraine has an agreement with the United States to cooperate with investigations like this one and there is no shortage of girls in Ukraine to be witnesses of the scheme. Anastasia cannot prevent the testimony of 2,000 girls to verify the points provided here.

  1. I like your review on Anastasiadate. I agree with you on what you mentioned but you didn’t mention the Robots AnastasiaDate / RussianBrides employ. Nor did you mention the software generated hand wave used in VIDEO SHARE which has also been used elsewhere in commercial fraud.
    https://youtu.be/vbCL93zATCs?t=298
    After RussianBrides stole from my credit card account with their FREE CHAT I spent 2 months hacking their website. There agencies in Ukraine are known for shooting their IT employees – https://youtu.be/uhJPdfbYMOU?t=550

  2. I personal changed my account details and numbers to stop this fraud that took over £750 in charges that was illegal and deception ,how did it occur they just removed the original order to a repeat month amount from £15 to £325 per month and failed to answer my mail ,they know that if they reply then my bank will have the evidence as it is the bank knew that it was fraud taking place hence the change of account numbers

  3. I didn’t spend a nickel. As soon as I saw 8 gallion hot chicks wanting to chat, while i hadn’t even posted a profile yet, I knew it was fake.

  4. Why all There Letters send on my Profile have translate by agency? soo its not the girl language or letter theyve translate? i want a replay pls. thnk you

    1. What you can try is to change your name in your profile on AnastasiaDate. If you change e.g. the name Cly to Niklas, then all your old letters will say “dear Niklas”. It is linked the name you have filled in your profile, all letters will be changed each time you choose a new name. Then you will see that it is not only a person who received this letter but a mass mailing. the letter is the same for all men but they must link to your profile name in order for it to appear as if it is a personal letter to you.

    I think, that thousands of Men, have found out that it is a fake Site. But how to stop it? I have been there shortly around 4 years back in time, and experienced what other also did. I asked to get my profile removed, and deleted, and I did not think more about that Site.
    But suddenly, around a Month ago, I began to receive emails from womens, which have reflected on “my profile” on the following Sites.
    http://www.arabiandate.com
    http://www.amolatina.com
    http://www.asiandate.com
    http://www.yourtravelmates.com
    And I was of course, very surprised how it was possible, that I suddenly could have profiles on these Sites, well knowing that I never had made any profiles there. So i wrote to there customer service, and asked how it was possible, and from where they got “my profile”.
    And the answer back was, that by there rules, when you have a profile on Anastasidate.com you also agree to make profiles on other Sites.
    So even that I 4 years back in time did ask to get my Profile deleted from Anastasiadate, they did not delete it, and now they send out a fake profile in my name, on these new created Sites, so they can make millions of $$ on these fake profiles. I’m fully schocked.
    But I really want to find a way to get it possible to stop these fraud, and criminal acts. But I have so far, not found any Country, who seems to take any of this fraud, serious, and get it stopped!

    So why is’n it possible to get this stopped??

  6. I wanted to stop getting this fake email so I changed my profile worse than the sickest criminal rapist murderer in history. You know what? I got letters saying they liked my profile and we share the same interests!

  7. Guys save yourselves a lot of pain and suffering. Copy and paste the works работа брачное агентство into google or Yandex and into the Eastern Europian social media VK and read job vacancies for “Work Brides” (scammer whores) to scam lonely foreigners. And free photo shoots for local models to create clean profiles to be used by the Work Brides to scam lonely foreigners.

  8. well, much better than Google, run the search “работа брачное агентство” on yandex.ua and yandex.ru.
    One among many others recent ad (at the time I write this) on VK for translation 6 to 8 hrs, salary 2000 to 6000 grivna:
    https://vk.com/id70864817

    Ukraine is the biggest powerhouse of corruption on the whole continent.
    The guys running these scams can be located. So it’s possible for savvy people to get them physically badly hurted.

    1. Australia as well. They target countries with people that have more money than brains and take them for anything they’ve got.

  9. Hi my name is Albert I had a problem A’s well this morning I buy R 864 for 80 credit s but I didn’t received my credit and now I can’t get hold off now one

    1. Hi Albert, please stop with this site as it is a scam. I was personally a few times in Ukraine to meet and know all. I have become close to a few girls and translators and they did tell me really how it works. You can contact me at [email protected]

  10. I am constantly amused at reading about men’s stupidity to pay for a clear scam. Do you use your brain at least a bit? I do: beautiful women constantly are engaged: with men in their jobs, nowhere else you can get them. Women with common look registered at uncharged local dating sites do not scam, except for those redirecting you to charged dating sites. If you do not have a job in a close vicinity of beautiful women, you never get them – sad but true. And that’s all. How simple!

  11. After ten years, I finally closed my profile. Many years ago this was a legitimate site. There were actually romance tours that produced marriages. That ended years ago. Still, there were ladies who were sincere about getting married. Now the ladies get paid to chat and all the letters being written are by the local agencies. The chances of finding a future wife on this site is almost nil. One lady (local agency) has written 88 letters to me. That should tell you something! This site, IMHO, is completely fake. Maybe social media can help to educate men in America to not give money to these trolls.

    1. Dear Mike,

      My name is Dennis de Wit. I am a student on Journalism and making a graduation project about dating sites. I am looking for a victim of Ukrainian and Russian datingsites.

      I would like to plan an interview with you. Because I am in The Netherlands, we could do it over Skype.

      If you are interested, please let me know.

      Thank you,
      Dennis de Wit

        1. Hoi Dennis wat wil je weten over die fake site. Ik heb er 5 maanden op gezeten. Vraag wat je wil weten. En heb er nog steeds een account. Je kan je account niet eens verwijderen. Je mag zelf kijken op de fake site met mijn account. Dan zie je wat voor berichten je krijg en wat voor brieven je krijg en veel meer. Wens je een fijne avond.

      1. I have been taken for thousands of dollars from Anastasia! Three separate women all of whom you put faith in. Because the site was supposed to be legitimate. I feel like she should have to pay everyone there damm money back. She needs prosecution!

  12. Yes, after years as a customer….spending thousands of dollars for prewritten false kliché-letters written by local agency administrators etc. and talking to and receiving witness from many women in Ukraine it was completely clear to me that ANASTASIADATE:COM has become a very well organized FRAUD. Telephone service, Chat…etc. its all a professionelly organised MONEY SCAM.
    Even the photos are false (photo-shoped)

  13. Total fake guys!! Have been messaged on Anastasia date at the precise moment I was texting with the same girl from Ukraine!!! We have become friends over the years. She did not even know she had a profile on that site!! Total scam!!! Save your hard earned money!!!

  14. Georg here–
    same scam worked on me for 2 days.
    Slowly, I realized that women, even young women, do not write or communicate like the TXT or Emails….
    The correspondents are fat beer dudes in a basement somewhere in Eastern Europe, monitoring these chat boxes and emails, taking in the Fees… like MINE !

    EVEN THE PHOTOS ARE FAKE….!

    It cost me about EUR 4 , because I distanced the fee draws on PayPal, and then blocked the charges at my Bank.

    Good Lesson for EUR 4…… RUN, DON’T WALK, TO THE EXIT..!!

    DONT TOUICH THIS SITE.

  15. Gus here,

    I have been on-and-off AnastasiaDate for four years. At first, I thought it was a really good opportunity to meet loving ladies and perhaps meet my future wife. I have met three ladies from Ukraine which took in six visits in total. Needless to say, this cost a small fortune. The first lady I met (Oksana Marenich) was such a very nice lady. It didn’t take long for her to start screwing me for money. I didn’t mind at first as I thought I was helping her get by. However, it started to get extortionate. I was seeing her for 18 months. The second and third ladies were the same. They expect western men to spend a fortune on them. The only thing that was real, was the ladies themselves. We men have to ask ourselves this: why are these beautiful women on this site? The fact that I have been on this site for years (Much to my own stupidity) has given me the opportunity to see the same beautiful women are still on this site. It beggars belief that they have not been snapped up by western men. This site is a highly sophisticated scam. I’m sorry to admit this, but we me are cannon-fodder for this kind of site. I think we are all suffering from delusions of grandeur. I consider myself a good looking guy and I’m immaculately turned out. I have been in business all my adult life but I have been stung and I’m not afraid to admit it. I should say the ladies that I was writing to me did show up and the first dates were very successful but at a cost. I must admit, though, I got laid on all occasions. Might as well look on the positive side. Waking up next to what can only be described as unadulterated beauty was a wonderful experience. My advice now is this: stick close to home as it will be more beneficial to your wallet.

    1. There are honest places to look for dating women overseas Graham. I hope you post about your experience online to warn other men about sites like Anastasiadate and Uadreams.

      But there are good sites. Even free ones like fdating.com or russian-personals. I have met quality women at each site.

  16. Virtually all the dating sites are frauds.
    I have tried most and as you use credits and access their contact email etc and you do not buy more credits they stop contacting you. All are the same.

    1. No Ian, not all sites are frauds. Bridesandlovers.com is a legit site. So are;

      elenasmodels.com
      ukrainiangirlsdating.com
      ukrainiancupid.com
      russiancupid.com
      cuteonly.com

      There are others. The thing that is great about honest Ukrainian women, is that they will always lead you to even more honest Ukrainian dating sites. Once you find out about the real Ukraine, you will want to move there.

      1. Andrew Klette

        Hi David, just been researching these sites, and I read your post. Could I ask you a few questions re Anastasiadate.com and Dream Singles sites?

      2. Thanks Krystyna, before you spend money at Anastasiadate or Asiandate, just take the money out of your pocket and rip it up, you’ll feel better. I wonder why they are still allowed on the MC/VISA merchant list? I can confirm that the other sites are legit, I got 250 replies but some of those also were duds but at least its not the agency trying to scam you.

      3. Now, Spring 2021, you do NOT want to go to Ukraine unless you have been vaccinated for the corona virus! Before u go I suggest getting a subscription to the Kyiv Post. It is an on line English language newspaper published for years in Kyiv. A few days reading will give you a very good idea of just what u r walking into. These people are mercenary when it comes to Western and in particular, American men. I have been on a couple different dating sites featuring Ukrainian and Russian women. They are real people but, they have no interest in you other than how much money you will spend on them. I’ve spoken on the phone with a couple that were fluent and they told me more than they should have about the entire set up. I have also spent money for gifts and obtained their supposedly private e mail addresses. ALL they ever did on those contacts was to ask and plead for money, perfume flowers, computer tablets and outright cash via Western Union. They will not meet you in person as most are either married or have boyfriends! The entire notion of there being better women in Ukraine and Russia is total non sense. Best to stay far away as it looks like Putin is set to swallow up Ukraine via the Russian Army!

  17. Bruno Andersen

    Shortly after I joined AnastasiaDate several years ago, I actually met one of the girls from there – Anna from Uman, halfway between Kiev and Odessa. It was in 2010, and I was in the former Soviet Union for the first time on my old Suzuki 1100 motorbike.

    Anyway, since I didn’t know Russian at the time, we had a translator, Irina, attached. I rented Anna’s friend’s apartment, which was expensive but not more than a hotel room, so I agreed with that. What I didn’t know though, was that she was also invited to a pretty expensive dinner, which was nevertheless a pretty basic meal… :-/
    We met for a couple of days while I was there, and during our meetings we went to the Sofievka Park (very beautiful, by the way).
    When I got home, our communication slowly died… but unexcpectedly, Irina suddenly started writing to me. She said she was impressed with my kindness and sincerity, but that she of course also knew I was corresponding with Anna and didn’t wish to interfere or anything.
    Since my contact with Anna died out, I did keep in touch with Irina for some time though- but despite her apparent interest she didn’t want to hand over her personal mail address (excusing with the fact that she wrote with other men, too… what did that have to do with it?)

    Later I met another Irina, this time from Nikolaev. I actually met her once, too… but this time we merely had a pizza in a local pizzeria. We did write for a while, also via her personal mail address avoiding the extremely expensive communication system on the site – but this eventually died out as well.

    The other girls I’ve had contact with on the site, were either away from their home city when I was in the area, or has other excuses for not meeting.
    My impression is there’s probably some legitimate girls between, and it’s also possible to get to meet them (or, at least, it used to be).
    However, it’s very unlikely for something serious to happen for the vast majority, and, thus I cannot recommend this site – also from the all to obvious fact that it’s probably mostly scam and, in any case, a far too expensive way to meet.

    I do recommend to study Russian if you’re serious about it, however, and then perhaps create a profile on a site like odnoklassniki.ru – this is pretty much like facebook, and the people that can be met there, are genuine, ordinary people from the former Soviet Union.

    Finally I wish to add a notion about my recent doings in these countries – I’ve been there every year since 2010 on my motorbike, and they never fail to impress me with their hospitality, amazing nature, tasty food, etc.
    What bothers me the most is the fact I have too little time and too little money to explore it as much as I’d like and it deserves – but I’ll soon return – до скорого свидания! 😀

  18. Anastasia a great site to be scammed. I think there are real women on this site but one has to be discerning. The real women are furious about the iron curtain that Anastasia has formed. No matter how hard one tries it is impossible to continue a relationship with them. I have had a incident whereby I have found the same fake profiles of ladies on other dating sites which are not Anastasia operated. I had found one lady on Date.com with the same profile and pictures seen on her Anastasia date profile. When I attempted to chat with her she said she didn’t know me. Impossible for her not to know me! I Date.com was using Anastasia date pictures of a fake model to be used by their translators. When I challenged her regarding being on another dating site. Date.com shared with me that the ladies often switch vendors in search of finding men. Interesting at the same time the model from Kiev was found available on Anastasia.com seeking to make contact.

    Anastasia also offers the option to block contacts of ladies profiles from appearing. But this does not work as the profiles continue to scroll through.

  19. I, too, can testify that Anastasiadate.com is a fraud. Although it might be true that some of the women are real, the photos have been so heavily retouched and made that the women cannot be recognizable. Search the women on Vk.com, using the date of birth and name, and you will see for yourself. Moreover, I have evidence that it’s not the women writing. It became clear when a woman I communicated with for a long time started to ask questions to me as though she knew nothing about me.

    The big question now is: can we not go together and make a group action against the fraudsters.

    I estimate having spent at least EUR 3000 on the site, as a complete waste of time.

  20. Leighton Beharie

    One woman got my attention. She is 45 years old and is a medical doctor. She was never married but has a 25 year old daughter. If we do the math then she was pregnant at the age of 19 and was in medical school. I received thousands of emails from women who are attracted to my profile but I have an incomplete profile with no photograph of myself. Fortunately I did not purchase any credits.

  21. I, too, can testify that Anastasiadate.com is a fraud. Although it might be true that some of the women are real, the photos have been so heavily retouched and made that the women cannot be recognizable. Search the women on Vk.com, using the date of birth and name, and you will see for yourself. Moreover, I have evidence that it’s not the women writing. It became clear when a woman I communicated with for a long time started to ask questions to me as though she knew nothing about me.

    The big question now is: can we not go together and make a group action against the fraudsters.

    I estimate having spent at least EUR 3000 on the site, as a complete waste of time.

  22. OK, I am embarresed to say that I got taken for over $1k! Even with my background in police work, I fell for it! The girl, Juliya (1781946) was very good and very convincing! But in the end, the facts are the facts!
    My question is, “why are they still in business? It’s January, 2019 and they are still going full tilt! Ukraine is not in good shape and needs the US! There has to be a stop to it! Two years after the start of this blog and many others and the money keeps rolling in! We fools, we merry band of fools!

  23. I have been on Anastasiadate for six years and like the other comments here have experienced similar fraud. The pattern of abuse is predictable. First shopping for expensive gifts, then supper or dinner chosen by lady or interpreter. Maybe a kiss, then never hear from them again. Chatting experience of long delays. Sometimes one word responses, usually in agreement. Makes you wonder how many men she is chatting with? Fly across the Atlantic for a date and no one shows up, so you have no date, and try to find another woman to meet. Very disappointing. These practices are deceptive and common. Lady says one thing in chat and another after you arrive.

    Even if you exchange telephone numbers and email addresses you often do not hear from them unless there is emergency, accident or illness and girl needs money. Examples; Mother has cancer, aunt broke her ankle, work takes me out of town and cannot meet. Mother passed away, mother is sick and I can’t meet because I have to take care of her, father sick and on it goes on and on. Tell ten women you are coming to Ukraine and you will be lucky to get one expensive dinner date with all the frills to pay. I have paid from 6,000 to 20,000 Hrygnias for dinner, plus the interpreter.

    There are women that do not resemble profile pictures at all with I.d. This was confirmed by interpreter. Some pictures may have been taken years ago, or the photos are fraudulent.

    No data is posted for sucessful meetings and subsequent marriages. No photographs of happily married couples. Some of the girls have been looking for husbands for at least six years and still on site. Makes you wonder why? Frauds?

    In real life there is a normal distribution of whatever you want to study. The results do not follow a normal distribution. Sadly, most contacts and acquaintances never meet. This follows the pattern of behavior. Anastasiadate knows the forgone conclusion.

    I suspect all men are victims of a clever scheme to make money for Anastasiadate. But I am sure the girls are also exploited.

    1. What you write about women looking for someone staying a long time on this website is true. Olesya with ID: 1696698 have a video and on this veedio she says that she is 18 years old. If you look her profile she is now 27 years old. This very beautiful woman has hardly been unlucky enough to meet anyone if she wanted. This is a mistake that Anastasiadate has made, and not removed the video because it reveals that something is wrong.

  24. It’s a business. The girls make money or else there wouldn’t be many girls sitting ready to chat to. They are real girls because anastasiadate makes them do a private only video for inside purposes only. Some are married. Some have boyfriends. Many have social media sites that can easily be found. Guys spend a lot of money on webcam porn just to chat. It’s not a fairy tale. The girls make good money as models and such. Some are the humble down to earthy desparate types but many lead lives that most of us would be jealous of. Forget calling it a scam unless you consider it’s reasonable for a perfect 10 model to sit around lonely looking for someone to marry her when she leads a great life. You don’t win the lotto unless you play.

  25. Rodney Allen Barnes

    I wish I had read the comments two years ago. I guess I am old and naïve. It took me almost three years and hundreds of dollars to get wise. In addition to the very thorough and comprehensive report made by Michael on July 22nd 2016, they have another scam and that is when you “Begin Chat” with a “lady”, the subscriber is not to be billed until they begin response. Which can take a couple of minutes. Now I have discovered I am being billed while I am waiting for response. I have actually been warned my credits are ready to expire while waiting for her response. Also, when you attempt to “end conversation”. the communication does not end and you are still being billed while frantically pushing the ” end conversation button. I have called serveral times to their customer service several times and they have given every excuse under the sun as to how it is my problem. The say to take snap shots while I am pressing the “end button”. to verify that this is actually happening. The point is this: It is so obvious that this is a rip-off site. with absolutely no accountability. I encourage men or women to please do your due diligence before subscribing to this site.

  26. I have joined AnastasiaDate dating site over 3 years, and I just came back from Ukraine two days ago, I was chatting a lady called Irina for over 6 months, and I decided to meet this lady, before I went to Ukraine, we had discussed so many things, and this lady was agree everything with me, She supposed to show up in the airport to pick me up, but when I arrived, she asked me to go the hotel by my own, After I have settled down at hotel, she sent me a message saying that she wanted to meet me but would bring an interpreter (her agent), but we had discussed and agreedt not hiring an interpreter, but everything was changed, if I did not agree to let the interpreter to come, then the interpreter was not allowing the lady to come to meet me, the interpreter controls her, finally we meet on the third day, the interpreter took us to a very expensive restaurant for lunch, after lunch, I went back to hotel, the agent sent me an email saying that the lady wanted to meet me again for dinner, I said to the agent, I could pay her US$30 per hour for translation for two hours, but left the lady and me alone, but the agent did not agree, because she was afraid we exchanged contact information, also she could not get the commission from the restaurant, so we did not meet at the second time.
    Finally, I figured out what happened, the agent own several ladies, and she chatted for those lady in the day time, because she could get money from AnastasiaDate, so sometimes you were confused why the lady did not know what you were saying. By the way, the agent knows every single word in the conversation between you and the lady.
    I do not expect a dating site like this, create the opportunaty to make money.

    1. AnastasiaDate.com Russsian dating site review:

      I will cut to the chase. I spend thousands of dollars to verify this Russian / Ukraine ladies dating site. To chat live n some have, #1)video cam, (one way) for me to see, or #2) camshare we can see each other, (by the minute + cost more). I usually ck them out on #2, this way I can see them in person with out all the professional model airbrushing.

      Most of them have video cam capable, but they will tell you the v cam doen’t work or broken. The site provide the girls cheap computers control by IT. These girls also can do it on mobile. There is at lease 1,000 girls online day n night 24 / 7. You would wonder why these girls are constantly spending all that time on site? Don’t they have a regular job.

      That is their job. For $2,000 dollars I got 5,000 credit, $399 for 1,000 credit. These are the 2 options I would get. These credit can go fast if you buy girls a gift. And some girls
      will ask. It’s time / min per pay. I have chatted with many. They get pay %ages on the amount of traffic the girls draw to their page. It is a job for them. Is a economy, employing
      thousands of girls.

      These girls are very easy to chat with n the site bombering my email with massages from
      girls that fit my profile or I had encountered before. Some girls would try their best to keep you in their page and persuade you to come to to build on the relationship. Some girls are more genuine in finding a mate. Since the get income from clients like me. Willing to to spend time with them.

      I have had girls are not looking for a mate at all. Is easy income n could be more. Those girls i found oiut to be in that site for years. They all get professional photo shoot n up keep of generation of consistent letters to clients. These dating site is big business for
      thousands of thousands of so call single ladies. From my suspicion some of these ladies are not single. Is just a job, cause you will never getting to meet them. As you can see so maney model young model looking young ladies. It is a type of sex n dating site.

      I have found ways to not have to go through their criteria and cost to connect with the ladies. All of the ways must haven participation of the lady, cause you don’t see their computer screen. These ladies can be chatting with few clients at time. Is usually the slowe response. Example, I have a lady turn on her cam n watch her. I see here cooking breakfast n all my txts to her are getting response while she is cooking breakfast.

      Their are middle person some maybe her communication or conversations skill is lacking. I find some are directly going through the translator n typing themself. I have successfully
      getting few of those ladies off site contacting me on my email. Their are girls are looking
      for a better live n might lead to their Family. I also have send money to a few of them due
      to the havoc the coronavirus is costing hardship for them. Also I got few ladies phone numbers n home address i have call send little gift to. I also had such fun chat with some ladies they find me on WhatsApp n contract me.

      Conclusion is there are some ladies are genuinely looking to escape from threir bad situation / economy. I find most don’t like the men in their country due to their abusive n cheating mentality. Beside the ladies out number the man at lease 2 to 1. Those man
      are spoil by the abundance of ladies to choose from.

      Bottom line is n their way of live n economy. Is a JOB;))

  27. AnastasiaDate is not 100% legit
    I almost always right-click on images of the females on the site and select “Search Google for image.” By doing so, I discovered that one lady, named Antonina (ID: 2022373), is registered on two adult webcam sites! After my live complaint via the chat, they both removed my access to the site using the same browser (on the same computer) and permanently redirected this same browser to their sister site!

    I nearly choked on the response I was given. AnastasiaDate Representative Viacheslav’s simple response was, “I went through your case and discovered that you found a lady on a cam website. Although we don’t prove when ladies use such platforms, due to our Anti-Scam policy, ladies can use any websites except for dating platforms as they are people with freedom of choice.”

    Can I still trust this site? Can I still trust the people on it? Not anymore.

  28. On the + side I met my wife on Anastasia in 2010. It is usually the interpreter that contacts the men initially, especially for the attractive ones. My wife told me as much. She made good money on the site and whilst we were in Ukraine, she was still ‘working on the site’ and we once took a pic of her holding a rose for another guy whilst there! – that’s messed up but it was her only form of income at the time! She later agreed to leave the site and we married in 2012. FYI. I found it relatively simple to get her number and email after a couple of video chats.
    There is no doubt that many of the Eastern European sites are money-spinners, many are worse than anastasia, in my opinion. With all of them, you just have to use common sense. eg. if the conversation is spun out, ie. I don’t understand etc., then it’s likely a con.

  29. I am amazed by the posts made by various men who think AnastasiaDate.com is a fraud site. Can anyone tell me if choosing the Mobile site option the ladies read what is written as there is no charge even though it is mentioned ten credits are being deducted. I have not paid a single cent for utilising the free Mobile service. However if one customer needs a non mobile service such as one through computer or laptop one has to pay a fee of US$ 2.99 for 20 minutes of talk time chat. Wonder if the replies is from the girl/lady herself cos you can’t view who is typing the text, these agents if they are in control of the text, will have a tough job managing such a huge task. I am at present a Anastasiadate.com free member through mobile smartphone and I feel dismayed to know that AnastasiaDate site is a fraud. Thanks for reading my comments. Goodbye Sebastian Mascarenhas pune INDIA

  30. i am really glad i found this thread of comments. I understand that people have to make a living and sometimes it isn’t always pretty in tough countries. But, what i am reading is that the site is a semi-fraud because some of the guys on here actually met girls and had dates. I can roll with that. it is kinda like a bar… in that … not all girls are truthful with their phone numbers or if they are in a relationship. But, if you stay in your lane you might do OK if u arent trying to date somebody 30 years younger than you. If i see a girl on LIVE video stream, then i know she is real and she will not need the interpreter. Here is what i think. Guys are looking for lightning to strike and so are the girls. I bet if u have a jet and a yacht, that is a lightning strike for her and you are going to get a date with almost any of them… those are just the rules fof the jungle in any country. in researching this site for scams, came across another site called aforeign affair and dreamsingles which actually have organized trips to different cities and wonder if anybody on here has an opinion about them. But, for now i am going to assume this one is only a semi-fraud and proceed with caution. im only looking for a good time anyway and this sounds like a treasure hunt, roulette and chess all in one game.

    1. Yes, some sites do say that, but I looked really closely, and this one doesn’t. That is fraud de factum at first, but fraud in the inducement if they get your money. It’s a wonder sites like these last even a few days, but they are pretty slick in avoiding the law, so beware.

  31. I wrote a negative review on sitejabber.com some years ago. I was contacted by a man who in the title of the mail wrote he was willing to
    refund my money if i delete my review. I never open the letter though it felt like a bribe kind of thing.!
    You can read my review here
    https://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/anastasiadate.com#1016

    But a very qualified guess is that about 98% of all east european websites are part of the scam and they just get the same girls from the same databases. Some steal and copy girls photos and profiles and employees pretend to be the girl.
    Many websites are actual the same but they just have other websites with a different name or design.
    Other the girl rent her images/photo to them or allow websites to prented to be the girl while she get money pr chat, letter, ect.
    Regarding sitejabber then notise that almost all reviews the user only have written 1 single review.. I am sure the reason is these reviews are written by fake users = anastasiadate staff and other of these websites do the same to try and push bad reviews down so less people read them. Also isent it kind of funny if you search for anastasia fraud that you find several websites that give a fine explanation of the opposite.

    one of the most famous scammers where Olga she was on +50 dating websites and on all sites she was very populare.. This girl or abuse of her images have earned the agencys huge amount of money.

    Also Yana Vosidova was on +50 dating websites and also was a top girl and everywhere.

    But there are other who are many places.. some i spoke to and even contacted on example instatgram and other places but got no reply. But that is how it is nobody on these sites want to talk to you outside the website where they dont earn money.

    I have tried to report many of the websites to the police such as Police in the city where they have an office, and to the FBI and i even wrote to the white house asking them to shut down the east european dating industry.
    Next time im in ukraine i will try and talk to the cyber crime department there.
    Truth is its a global crime going on where the firms are hiding in tax heaven and in excotic places.. So there is a need for a global police coorporation to take them down.. and well that is difficult.

    during the years i have used many dating websites and did go to ukraine and one time to russia one time to date the worlds most beautifull girls. In the start when i started it was very easy to meet someone even with a short notice. But as time went by it become difficult.. and after revolution something changed and it become even more difficult to meet the girl you talk with.
    And when i started to talk negative and about scam and people not showing up on dates and so on, then i guess i was blocked form meeting anyone.. but im able to use the website and talk = spend money but i doubt i will meet anyone via any east european website.

    Truth is on no dating website its possible to have your profile deleted.. They just put it on pause and even share information inbetween websites so if any person come back then they can follow up on the corrospondance but also warn each other if someoone is negative and talk about scam and such things.
    The profiles never get deleted and they will just ignore you or tell you that your profile was disabled and so to speak hide your profile BUT never delete anything.. But regarding anastasiadate i can see that letters older than +10years start to dissapear automatic.. but suppor and other letters do not.
    Belive me they keep track of people, since they want it to look like a girl recognize you if you go to other websites so they can continue the conversation there and make it sound like the man is still talking to the girl and not an employee

  32. Hehe Seems our dear Michael crashed and burned as you did publish the entire piece and even on a highlight with its own article! He thought you were a beacon of Elena and wouldn’t publish it but censor it entirely.
    Thanks for sharing this Krystina!
    Btw, Do you have any info on other sites like LADAdate or Victoriya Club? They seem to be sharing the same data bases
    of hot young women. THanks

  33. I went on AnastasiaDate.com about two weeks ago. I purposefully went towards finding an average looking lady, as I thought no real beauty would ever need to use a site like this, and that should have been my first sign that this is a scam, but my loneliness and horniness took over my brain for a few days. That is what they are counting on. Whoever was responding began fairly mild and meek, putting up a front of looking wholesome, modest and mild mannered, but as the “romance” started heating up, the photos and chat became more and more pornographic. The site is betting that you will just see these girls as normal and lonely plus a little bit horny, if that is what it takes, but it turns out they are coached on how to keep a man’s attention for as long as they can, and time is the issue with these frauds. If they had only a fee for letters, like some reputable sites, that would be one thing, you gotta make money at this or it doesn’t make sense to do it. There is no altruism on any of these dating sites, they are created to get your money, fraud or not. The real issue is how much time you are willing to spend in finding this out. Time is money for them, and that is not just an over-used phrase, it is serious money for them and heartache for you. These sites are heavy into psychological romantic terrorism. The girl I was into had written me 14 times, and I, as a stupid horny and lonely guy fell for it every time, but in the 13th letter she actually made a mistake that was difficult to explain. She sent the the same 2nd letter to me again, word for word, but put the wrong name for my name. Then she wrote back that is was a cultural mistake, that she thought it was an abbreviation for my name, but the name’s only commonality was they both started with the same letter! It was like saying Bob is the short name for Bill. I’ve been to Russia as an English teacher, and I know about the sweet names associated with most Russian and Ukrainian names, so that lie fell flat. I’m just glad it only cost me about $150.00. Lesson learned. There are only a very few reputable dating sites that have marriage minded ladies. They cost a bit more, but they are very up front about it. They make money for getting you together, and have been doing it under the same name since the USSR dissolved in the 1990s. AnastasiaDate claims that they have a way to get contact information exchanged , but it can cost you up to $500.00 to send the girl flowers or some expensive gift, and a note with your info, with no guarantee that she will reciprocate. Complaints are met with hostility, and there are absolutely NO REFUNDS. Reputable sites refund money if bad information caused you to pay for a letter. Don’t fall for credit refunds, that just keeps you in their loop. I hope this helps some guy that is thinking with the wrong head. Just don’t do it. You know what they say about something that seems too good to be true, don’t you?

  34. How ridiculous are they ?
    Their employees and robots are speaking in the Chat and robots are writing the letters.
    Employees in the chat are copying and paste the same things every time.
    Robots are writing and sending 1000 letters by the same girl.
    Would ever a girl write 1000 letters to somebody who is never answering to her ?
    The same job are doing most paid dating sites. Some criminals are behind them.
    They should go in prison. Why Interpol or FBI are doing no action ?

  35. Ahh…anastasia brings back memories. I got scammed not once but twice by girls from what was formally known as the Ukrainian Crimea Republic. First scam in 2009, I got the date, a social at two restaurants, but it was a date with interpreter scam, girl didn’t even know me although I wrote her via agency for 8 months. What made matters worse, on the scheduled meeting for our second date, she made up an excuse, and I stumbled into a Russian navalbase. I was detained for a day on trespass charges by Ukrainian authorities, and the Russians kindly let me go free. The second girl from same city in 2011, didn’t even show! I enjoyed the trips regardless for their sightseeing experiences. I like Crimea, very beautiful country, just don’t trust the beautiful ukrainian women.
