    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.
    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 –

  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

    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.
    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 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??

  7. Badassman says:

    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!

    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.

  9. Danila says:

    well, much better than Google, run the search “работа брачное агентство” on and
    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:

    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.

    • Pieter says:

      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

    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!

  13. Mike says:

    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.

      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

  14. 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)

  15. Kelly says:

    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!!!

  16. georg says:

    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 !


    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..!!

    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.

    • 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 or russian-personals. I have met quality women at each site.

  18. Ian Caldwell says:

    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.

    • No Ian, not all sites are frauds. is a legit site. So are;

      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.

      • Andrew Klette says:

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

  19. Jim R. says:

    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!

  20. Joe says:

    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.

  21. Simple Man says:

    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.

  22. Rodney Allen Barnes says:

    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.

  23. JIMMY says:

    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.
