Reasons Why You Can Trust Krystyna
What is AnastasiaDate.com?
AnastasiaDate.com is owned by Social Discovery Ventures, based in Malta (see also: RussianBrides.com Review: Fake or Legit?). It was initially founded by David Besuden and Elena Besuden and has its CEO as Dmitry Borisovich Volkov.
The platform has been in operation for more than a decade and facilitates your connection to your preferred women. According to our assessment, the platform is mostly for people looking for any relationships and commitments.
It is mainly for single men who are interested in dating or marrying Slavic and European women. If you are attracted to Eastern European women, then this could be the most favourable option for you.
However, the site terms claim that it is only for entertainment purposes and you get no guarantees to find a date. In my opinion, communicating via this dating site is just a waste of your money and time.
How can I sign up at AnastasiaDate.com?
Signing up on the platform is not difficult. You only need to have your laptop or mobile device that can access a browser. You can then search for the official AnastasiaDate.com and start the process.
In this section, we will quickly look at the process in depth.
How Much Does AnastasiaDate Cost?
While you can try the platform for free, you must pay to enjoy premium services. There are three distinct payment plans available on AnastasiaDate.com. They are all grouped in credits.
The first plan has 150 credits, which costs you 0.13 USD per credit. You will pay a total of 19.99 USD for this plan.
The second plan will give you 600 credits at the cost of 0.25 USD per credit. To enjoy this plan, you need to pay a subscription charge of 149.99 USD.
The largest plan is 1500 credits at the rate of 0.20 USD per credit. In total, you will pay 299.99 USD. These premium subscriptions will extend automatically once they run out.
When compared to most dating platforms, most people have noted that the platform’s rates are just above average.
Some of the free services on the platform include registration, searching and browsing members, chatting for three minutes, as well as reading letters. All the other services are premium and require you to pay to access these services.
As you have seen, the platform uses a credit system to enable you to access these features. For example, sending a plain letter will cost you 10 credits while sending a letter with a photo will cost you 15 credits. If you want to send virtual credits, you will pay 15 credits while flowers and presents will cost you anything between 29 to 800 credits.
It all depends on what you intend to send. The call me feature seems to be the most expensive one which goes for 100 credits.
Overall, the site experience is highly expensive and as for me it is unlikely to ever result in an actual date with your Russian bride.
AnastasiaDate.com member structure and profile quality
Today, the platform has more than 500,000 users in the United States and over 5 million have registered across the globe. The site focuses on connecting singles at a worldwide level with the biggest chunk being connecting men to Eastern European and Slavic women.
Looking at the platform, you will find that it has various members that can be sun-seekers, fans of fitness, nature girls, and animal lovers. But I have to say that AnastasiaDate.com does not create the impression of a site that can provide you with your potential Russian bride. In contrast, it is overtly sexual.
To summarize: The female profiles on Anastasiadate.com create a kind of stereotype — one that can be described with the following keywords: airbrushed, heavy makeup, super models, and sexy babe.
Is it easy to use the site on mobile and desktop?
The platform is fairly easy to use. Firstly, the registration is pretty easy and quick to fill and get started. Depending on your preferred mode of registration, you can manually fill in the details or sync with Facebook to automatically fill in all your data.
It also boasts of a navigable layout to enable you to browse and search for profiles online. These profiles often have noticeably large pictures so that you know who you are chatting up. Most users have also narrated that it is easy to send and respond to messages on this platform.
With the different communication and chat options, people can send messages and gifts to their preferred “matches”. However, you will need to have the required credits to communicate. In the long run, it can be very expensive.
The platform seems easy to use regardless of whether it is on mobile or desktop versions. It is not a stressful platform. Members can access the site on Android and iOS apps. They reported that the interactions are quite similar whether you use either device to browse. It seems to be a usable and well navigable platform.
How do I contact customer service at AnastasiaDate.com ?
On the platform, AnastasiaDate.com say that they care about their clients. They claim to be available 24/7. However, I had to wait for feedback for over three days and this was inconvenient. On the platform, you will find phone service, web contact form, and email.
There is also an FAQ section where you will find all the frequently asked questions regarding issues such as payments, pricing, membership, policies, and how you should relate with the members. You can quickly go through this section and see whether you can get answers.
Our Verdict: Using AnastasiaDate is pointless
Like every dating platform, AnastasiaDate.com has its pros and cons. As we assessed the site, we noticed some things that we liked, and some that we didn’t like about the platform.
For example, the platform has real English translation features and lots of ways to interact with other users. You can communicate with your potential mates via sending gifts as well as live cameras. Even better, the platform has moderators that work day and night to filter fake profiles.
On the downside, compared to other dating platforms, AnastasiaDate.com seems to be quite expensive. There have also been reports of people who have been scammed by other members in AnastasiaDate.com.
According to the terms and conditions, AnastasiaDate is for “entertainment purposes only”. This means the members’ area is full of fake brides profiles and chats are operated by site employees.

All 4 girls looked like their photos sans the professional makeup, of course. (Note: Expect a girl to be 30 minutes late. But, of course, you will be prompt.) On the male scale, 1-10, of a girl’s beauty, subtract 2 for the dolling up on their profile picks. If you think a girl is a 10, she is an 8 in reality, etc…
Girl #4 and I hit it off grandly. Alina is now my focus and we are no longer communicating on Anastasia, only through email, sms and skype.
Yes, there are players/scammers on the site of all ages. Are there not same same in your local area of operation? My experience is they are the low range exception, not the rule.
No, Anastasia does not pay them for chatting. I found no evidence to support this and I am trained in the art of counter-intelligence.
My experience is the opposite, these girls are not motivated by money, they are motivated to find true love with real gentlemen for they are so tired of being alone, being treated like dirt, and desire to have adventure and excitement in their never changing daily lives. Are they unhappy? No. Are they wanting more out of life? Yes.
My experience is Anastasia is not a scam agency, just very expensive. But, a couple hours chat or a few letters exchanged is no more expensive than a typical date night in the US.
It is my assessment the ROI (Return On Investment) for finding my Ukrainian beloved on Anastasia is many times to my favor vice messing about with American girls as I have all of my life.
A nickel’s worth of free advice…
If you do not have 8-10k USD and the time to travel there every 3-6 months for a week or two to invest in your quest for a Ukrainian beloved for life, you are wasting your time and might as well throw what little money you have to invest into the toilet.
Now, 11 months after diving in, I reap the rewards for my self-sacrifice, a blonde/green-eyed stylish, stunning beauty, 5’7, 110 lbs, a transportation manager by trade, who sings like an angel and is quite thrilled to take the arm of a loyal gentleman for life.
Godspeed and good hunting to you all….
I was even engaged but the girl changed her mind a few days after that (we had known each other for 1½ year ) but of course it is also a big decision to marry someone and even move to another country. I think the language barrier and her not being able to use her education in my country where the main problem.
Anyway.. What I want to say is that the girls on Anastasia are all real and yes they look like their photos, and it is also my impression that they are serious.
I’m a very careful person and yes I am able to see if someone are acting or playing games with me. I also know how to look for scammers that just want me to buy them example gifts when we are on a date, and I even look at how much money the girl ask about when she go home in a taxi after our date. In Ukraine you can actual drive from one end of the city to the other for less than 100 uah (kiev/kharkov/odessa).
I can say I’m a “young” man below 32 years old and I’m a normal nice looking person so yes I truly believe many girls are interested in me, both in my own country but also in example Ukraine. I can also see the girls are interested when I go to a disco etc. SO that is a good sign!
I like to say to people who read this that you should be a bit realistic. I know that everyone say that age do not matter, but to be honest it do matter. What should a 20 year old girl do with a 60-65 year old man??
Could you go to your local disco and find a 20 year old girl and marry her. No you can’t… Well you might be lucky if you have a lot of money and she maybe say its love, but to be honest I think that a lot of girls will use you to earn money or get another life. And dump you a few years later so she can have children with a young man.
BE REALISTIC!! You should find an older girl and not chase 20 year old girls…. Use your brain and not your dick!!
The only thing that I worry about using Anastasia is if the girls get paid money for writing letters or chatting. I have lately heard rumors about this in Ukraine, as well as on the internet. It is clear to me that if anyone have any evidence then you should go to the police and try to stop the agency from operating…
Remember that in Ukraine and Russia the companies really FEAR the tax office, not the police. So if you have evidence contact the tax office they will do something and investigate if the girls pay tax of their extra income etc., and then talk to the police once they know about things. If the girls get paid to talk to you, well then they are employees and properly “not real”.
I can understand the need for agencies to have completions and giving girls small prices to reward people who spend much time online and so to speak keep the wheels turning, but it should be a completely different and separate thing than example getting paid pr. minute you chat.
Please if people have evidence of the girls being paid to go on dates or writing letters/chatting then do the right thing and try to stop the agency. Talk to the media and show them your evidence and warn people. Talk to the tax offices and police etc.
My best advice when using Anastasia is really to just buy a plane ticket and go to the social tour party. There are like 500+ girls and you save a lot of money communicating with a person that when you meet you maybe find out there are no feelings or you simply do not like her.
So go to the party and meet people in real life and see if there are chemistry that is the most cheap thing to do. You do not need to be part of the tour; you can do the travel planning yourself and just go to the party yourself. That is much cheaper.
During the party you can exchange phone numbers etc. And then go on dates in the evening or next days. I highly recommend that you take a photo of the girl and in your notebook write down the photo ID number. This way you can keep track of the girls so you do not mix up anyone.
I like to say that the party is nice for a Man, but the girls are rather bored. There are like 20 men and 300 – 500 girls during the 6 hour event.
One other thing…. I do not know if It is a good or bad thing, but I do wonder a bit about why so many young girls are able to be at the party example Friday afternoon and that they do not study or work etc. BUT of course it is a special party and a good chance of meeting someone (maybe, very hard competion).
I think some of them are hookers (but want to change their life) but some are of course real good girls. I serious think people are serious when they attend. At the end of the party there are normal a competion where the girls can win a little money and other prices.
In general, I like Anastasia Date and think the girls are real and serious, but I’m very aware about rumors and believe me when I say I investigate things.
I like to say that the party is nice for a Man, but the girls are rather bored. There are like 20 men and 300 – 500 girls during the 6 hour event.
I will not “warn” about Anastasia, but if you really need a very serious warning then stay away from scam company such as ” yeva4u.com” the girls are fake and I can even prove that the girls get paid. This evidence will be shipped to the tax office in Russia/Ukraine etc.
Be aware that yeva have many sister sites with different names!!!!
If you seek on the internet you will find MANY forums talking about scam at yeva. Personal I have been in Moscow to meet 5 girls… I meet 0… Some claim they do not know I come, other they were sick, and some travel to other city.
BUT I’m happy with Anastasia Date; it seem real to me!!
I have been a member and used their letter writing service extensively for a number of years. I was a newcomer and did not know any better. It took time and I had to learn the hard way. Much time and dollars spent and I have had absolutely zero results.
I have been on one of their Romance tours many years back, although have to admit, that I did have a nice time. It was my very first trip to the Ukraine and I was excited to see a new country.
I went to a few socials with Anastasia and met a girl there at the first party. She was a nice lady but she did not have sincere intentions to have a relationship with an American man. All that she wanted was to be wooed, wined, dined and receive nice gifts from an American guy. I was totally smitten at the time and I thought that things would have worked out. I was wrong!
I hired an Immigration Attorney to work on a K1 fiancée visa. When time came for this woman to go to her interview at the Embassy, she did not go! she backed out. How do you think that I felt about this entire ordeal? All in All she told me that her mother did not want her to move abroad because that she was her only child.
She could have told me this early on. Is this not a Scam? I was out of a lot of money besides my emotions being hurt. Soon afterwards I broke things off with her. Much time, effort and money being wasted.
A few years later, met another lady she lived in Odessa, was 35 at the time and divorced. We exchanged letters with each other weekly for about 3 months. I still believe that all letters were not written from her but from Anastasia’s interpreters. She would not directly answer questions that I posed at her. She wanted to chat, so that she could supplement her income.
I told her that I would be traveling to Odessa and that we can meet. She seemed to like the idea. When I arrived to Odessa I sent her a note through chat and she acted very surprised that I was in Odessa. Hmmm, very strange! About a day later she wrote me back and said that she could not meet with me because she had to take care of her sick Aunt.
This is one of the oldest excuses in the book! We have all heard this one many times. I spent a few weeks in Odessa and she made no attempts to contact me. The moment I got home, there she was on chat again wanting to chat. I said no way! So this is the 2nd Scam…
I could go on and on and on. I have done a lot of reading from other members and I am well convinced that Anastasia is a big rip-off Scam just to play with your heart and empty out your wallet.
Please stay away from this company! This is the biggest fraud going on the internet! This company earns 150,000,000 a year for no reason! They are just in business to make money. This company have helped start up International Foreign Dating back in 1993 but this is the very same company that has thrashed this entire Industry.
Never Send Money to anyone that you have never met.
No matter how believable their sob story may sound.
Keep your money in your Wallet!
We had exchanged email addresses, so it made it a lot cheaper to talk to each other, as I know it can get expensive chatting and doing letters on the dating site, we still talk to each other every day for a couple of hours on Skype or by email. She is coming to see me in England in August and we are both looking forward to seeing each other in person again.
I am a retired man of 62 years of age, I am not a rich man, but enjoy life. My lady is 49 years of age, she knows what I am like and what I can offer, all she wants, is to be loved and have a good family life again, which is the same for me. I think it helps with use both being more mature people, Most of the girls you see on Anastasia are young and to look at most of them, you would think they are models and when I was in Odessa for that week with my lady, it was rare I saw any ladies like that.
I know one of the translator girls very well, as she is a friend of my ladies and now mine. she says the ladies are all made up and use a professional to do the profile pictures of them, so this is why they look so good on their profiles. I am happy to say, my lady looks better in the natural than on her profile photo. As for getting paid for chatting etc., they get paid in credits, as my lady has told me this.
All I can say to you is this. I have worked for me, but I do know men it hasn’t worked for and they become bitter about the dating site, but if you use your head and your heart, you can find love there as I have. The one thing I will say about this dating site is it is expensive and everything you do on their costs you.
If you know she is the right lady for you, make the phone call through the dating site, get her personal contact numbers as I did and it will save you a fortune and if the lady says what she is and show commitment to you as mine has done, all will be ok, but if they just want to keep chatting on the dating site and not give out any personal details to you, steer clear of them as this will just come to nothing and cost you a lot of money doing so.
When I went to Odessa, I booked my own flight and booked my own apartment online as using the dating site is more expensive, so use your head if you are going out to see your lady, you can save money that way. It was lovely to arrive at Odessa airport and see a big smiling face waiting for me, having a wonderful week together and even when I went home, see came to the airport with me at 5am in the morning to see me off.
Don’t be put off. Just use your head and not your wallet. There is some one for every one out there, but just be careful.
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 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!
I use Anastasiadate for now 3 years and I’m totally agreed with all post here. This site is full of fake profiles, stop dreaming.
I know 3 translators here now, and one is now very close to me. Paid just for chats, not to answer letters or to write model’s profiles (yes, profiles are not written by the models).
She works with 3 other colleagues in a under heat flat under the responsibility of a boss, and of course this is not legal job.
Anastasiadate is not aware about it??
Ladies on the pic is Anastasia Kucher, you can find her on her VK profile. She has removed some “sexy pics” she has made with her BF on her profile when I have complained.
Her profile was hidden for 2 weeks and she comes back, of course! If you want to play here, you can, as I do some time. But be aware there are absolutely no feelings on that site, just milking man.
They just need your money, nothing else. But if you have nothing else to do, you can search the exception…
Good luck!! I have plenty of examples, but don’t want to put my friend on trouble if I give too many details. This is fakes site, Anastasiadate know that, this is a simple business with ladies that spend their time answering you, underpaid, just to fill your hart with bullshit.
Odessa is very modern/western and unless they are older, then they are not serious about leaving their friends and family to move. At that age, they are being replaced by younger women.
Also, Anastasia forbids any of their women to correspond with you outside of the agency. If they do, they are black listed from all dating sites. The agency doesn’t want you to be successful and bring her back to the states. Then they would lose money.
Anastasia is a scam and her review of them makes me sure that she works for them. Most women in the Ukraine don’t have internet. Yet there are always tons of women online at Anastasia.
It’s because it’s THEIR JOB!
I hope that this helps.
Of course she liked to receive gifts and bought a couple of things for her new apartment. Keen for me to organise a holiday in SE Asia etc. But since Friday evening I have not been able to see her and now her mother is ‘sick’. I still have 4 days to kill in Odessa before my return flight.
Despite all the contact and loving emails I received after our first meeting, when we meet or say goodbye it was like with a female colleague (without hugs of course) or my sister; peck on the cheek and a hand hold with a short hug.
At no point during our recent time together was there any spontaneous affectionate contact from her. When finally I sent her a message try and sort things out and tackle her about this on Sunday she replied she would not be able to see me for the remaining week I am here, that although I was a ‘good man’ our relationship could only be as friends, but she would not mind the trip to Malaysia…
I should have picked this up when I gave her some money to attend classes to improve her English – she trousered the money like a vacuum cleaner.
You work it out….
I will keep this review short and to the point, I used to go out with a Ukrainian girl for many years, for various reasons things didn’t work out but we stayed close friends and talk often.
Recently I was curious about anastasia bride sites, so decided to have a look around, while sifting through the profiles of beautiful girls I noticed a photo of my ex, I wasn’t that surprised because I had originally met her through a dating site and we were both free agents now, so i could hardly get upset about it.
Recently she called me to catch up with life, while chatting I quizzed her about her profile on anastasia, at first she seemed a little reluctant to tell me about it, but finally just said its not what you think, it’s a job!
What do you mean it’s a job?, she said she was paid to translate letters for many girls profiles and reply to the guys pretending to be interested in them, the more guys she talked with and got to spend money, the more she earnt, whe.
For just replying to letters she was earning anything up to $200, part of the deal also included a photo shoot for her profile, after a while it got the better of her and she doesn’t log on it so often, she wanted to delete it but it’s not so easy!
If the girl wish to delete a profile, they have to write to all the guys they have been payed to talk with and slowly bring the relationships to a conclusion before they will be released and the profile deleted.
She also said that she had lots of complaints from the people that ran it, saying her letters were boring and that she had to tell guys how in love with them she was and encourage them to write more often, and in turn generate them more money by selling more credits and services.
So be warned! Most of the girls are not genuine, they are out to make $$$$$ and not to meet the man of their dreams, or as they call it, my second half, my soul mate…. I’m sure a small percentage are genuine, but believe me save your hard earnt money.
I have tried to contact Anastasia Dates customer services but they give you the impression that they look into the problem but they never get back to you at all and i have tried several times with e-mails and the so called live support. As scammed says it is in their blood and probably brought up with this way of life.
All I can say is stay away from this site and I never thought I would say this. I ignored all the other blogs on other sites as it seemed 50/50 so it was difficult what to believe but now I know from my own personal experience.
Oh and by the way i spoke to a girl whilst i was there and she works for many agencies in the town and she admitted to me that the girls get paid and it was all about supporting their family and most girls do not show up and the ones that do take you for a very expensive ride!!
I still believe there are good ones there but the key is learning the language very well and forget the sites, easier said than done! I still hope to find a wife from there but this last experience has seriously knocked my faith.
And Anastasia advertising payment and ongoing commission to local models for a professional photo shoot to create clean profiles to be worked by the ‘Work Brides’ scamming lonely foreigners.
By the way I saw a lovely profile on RussianBrides (anastasia) in 2000 advertised as 55 years old, who looked like my own mother did when I was young. I saw her again on Christmas day and had to register to view the full profile. She was still 55 years old.
The sex Robot wasted no time picking me up and I received the nice letter from my mother’s double asking us to become good friends.
I later found a fake email in mt sent bolder to her that I never wrote. The real lady is now in her 70s and may even be deceased. I sent the sick profile user a copy of her own job description advertised by Anastasia.
It sickens me when a US$140,000,000 professional scam agency takes advantage of the elderly who once advertised before the agency became corrupt. Below is the last letter from the scammer after sending her her own job description. The scammer , most likely a man, never answered important questions such as repeated request to do video cam.
XXXXXX (ID: XXXXXXXX) Email Me Add to Contacts Age: 55
Thank you for so long and detailed letter.
It is nice to know about NZ holidays. Have no idea if you also celebrate Snt Valentine’s Day. But just wanted to say: Have a very Happy Valentine’s Day!
With special thoughts of you on Valentine’s Day with warmest wishes for all the happiness you deserve today and always.
I am going to Moscow for 3 days in May, 2016. It will be Day if Museums and I am interested to visit some in the capital of our country. It would be nice to meet you there and explore the city together. If you are serious and really wish. So, now you have time to apply for visa and welcome to Russia.
If not – please do not spend your and my time in wane for senseless mailing.
Regarding other things in your letter… Well, I think you have great imagination and can write nice detective stories… But sorry, it is not for me…
Have a very nice weekend.
I have got your letter. Well…
First of all I must say you didn’t surprise me with your “valentines day surprize on Anastasia”. It was, let say, strange behaviour of a strange man. Nothing more. I am not suspicious, but you are, as I can see. And all the rest of your letter just confirms that you are a very strange and a very suspicious personality.
I hav told you many times that I am serious and not interested in aspects of Anastasia rules and so on… I am also curious why you having been stalking the ladies profiles since 2000 and have seen my profile there since 2000 only. You should find it since 1980, if not from 1960, at least!))))
The point that you “changed your RussianBrides profile to scare off the young girls” just tells me a lot. Everyone gets what he is worthy or looking for. With this kind of intention and profile you can not meet a serious person. I am sure, girls feel it and play with you like you play with them. Equal situation, nothing else. Don’t you think so?
If a strange man spends years and money since 2000 for senseless things it is man’s choice. But sorry, not mine and not for me! Your letter is more addressed to management or administration of dating website. So, please, contact them and disccuss it there.
I am tired of it and wouldn’t like to continue.
Wish you all the best,
True love is something that cannot be bought, at the same time some people take years and are still unable to find the love they are after. The good thing about the invention of the internet is that the world has been brought closer and in doing so, people are now able to meet others from around the world, without having to leave the comfort of their living room.
AnastasiaDate.com is one such dating site that you will be able to find a lovely girl from Russia to talk to. Don’t get the wrong idea and think that this is a sleazy site since that is not the case. Every girl here is looking for the same thing, which lonely guys around the world are looking for “True Love”.
The great thing about AnastasiaDate.com is that you not only have the option to talk to these girls. You are able to do a whole host of other things to decide, if the girl you are interested in is the right one for you. Options like “Live cam” and “Video date” are nothing more than tools to be used to know the girl better.
If you are just starting out and you don’t have someone you enjoy spending time with yet, there is a page of videos of all the girls that are on the site. This allows you to not only decide if the girl is interesting, but it also gives a very clear picture of whom you are talking with.
As for the cost of all these, I cannot put a price on love, but even after paying for their services it is a very cheap price to find someone special.
Yes it takes a while to work it out because most of us like to think we are irresistible or we go into the site because we are legitimately lonely looking for a partner OR we go in genuinely to do the right thing then we re instantly inundated by beautiful women saying nice things.
How quickly we forget and start lapping it up.. Soon as that happens they have got you. We forget so quickly about our dream and start living theirs…
This site Anastasia Date has been around for a long time because it knows the way to a mans heart – their ego..
Boost it and we quickly forget that we are just men looking for a partner – we become these Adonis types that can do any wrong and are irresistible according to these women..
But there lies the problem – most things I have read about this site talk about women – if you spend your time there you will find that you are talking to multiple people taking charge of one womans profile and some of these people typing to you are men…
After a while it is pretty easy to discern whether you are talking to a man or a woman…With that if she switches on her cam you will (if you watch) – because normally you are too busy typing to see that they are just sitting in their booth in front of a cam and someone else is typing
This place is a scam – but it is also something else – I have been able to give my email to a few of them and they have contacted me straight away on my email address but soon after they disappear off the site all together.- big no no for the girls – the biggest problem for these girls is if they genuinely like someone and they want to take it further – they cant…….
And yes all I did was simply type my email address in the chat – most will say they see dots……NOT TRUE – they see exactly what you type because one of the girls told me on my email before she disappeared…..
Again if you try this only pick the profiles that are new eg. ones that are 186—- 187—– (Look for the highest number) these people haven’t been de sensitized yet or a legitimately joining to find a partner – these people can and will still try to talk to you – but take your time to see whether she is genuine – again – after a while you will get used to the regular hard drive stored letters to a genuine one – how can you tell??
Your letters from the girl will make sense! at least some of your questions will be answered and when you are on chat she will ask you questions related to potential dating and not something as lame as asking about your mood….
TRY THIS – in your profile ask the girls to say a magic word when they contact you – simple isn’t it??
Haha well try it – many will say they have read your profile and guess what?? no magic word – no matter what they say to try and get out of that don’t believe them…
Some will quickly get their translator to have a read and they will try to make you talk but remember – they said they read your profile – they did not – its just another line to get you to pay them to talk…
At the end of the day I spent a lot of time there doing the research – this site (I wont say these women) because it usually isn’t the woman but an employee) this site is set up to prey on men – simple – at the end of the day we are pretty predictable so it is easy…
Remember you are lonely or looking legitimately for a partner – a photo of a beautiful woman – one you would never attract in real life – pops up and a few enticing words are typed or better than that a set of words to stir your emotions or to make you feel guilty – are typed by someone paid to do this to make you reply – remember as soon as you reply they are in – earning money – it is as simple as that – it does not matter to them that you are a person – to them you are a dumb – wealthy lonely sucker……
As you can see I am not mincing words – I have a background in psychology and to me it was a battlefield of clever clever manipulation…- They are very good at what they do….. It was fun for me doing the research….
I chatted with many, planned to meet 1 in Kiev and 2 others in Odessa who acted like they were all excited and could not wait to meet me (while also going there to attend the socials). So I traveled half way across the world to meet them, and those girls did not even show up. It is really amazing how heart-less they are.
Afterwards I saw 2 on chat again: after inviting me to chat, like nothing happened, one then did not respond again after I asked where she was. The other just continued to say she was there to meet me (when NO-ONE was) – they will say any lies just to keep you chatting and paying them money.
Then the ones you meet there, have you pay a high price to their interpreters which they split up – and take home to their boyfriends. — TOTAL SCAM.
I am surprised to find anywhere a blog like this that allows factual comments – it seems Anastasia controls most of this stuff and smothers the net with their BS – so you cannot get well informed about them — an organization and country with absolutely NO SOUL – which is why they are so BACKWARD – UNDERDEVELOPED.
There are many nice people (mostly superficial) and they seem to have some high standards with certain aspects of integrity, but will scam you anyway they can get away with it – thinking nothing wrong about it – it is ingrained in their culture.
I spent a ton of $. This is an amazingly well developed scam – well disguised and very difficult to do anything about – but get informed, and be very exact and unyielding in any interaction with them or the women (most do not qualify to be referred to as ladies, barely should be associated with the human race).
They not only steal your money, time but also destroy your heart — getting PAID TO CHAT AND CORRESPOND with men – saying anything to keep you talking and spending – a nice easy, convenient occupation. The video chat gives assurance to who you chat with but nothing about their sincerity, and outside of that, you have NO WAY of knowing with whom you are corresponding – some are paid to represent many different girls.
Going there and being stood up – after waiting about 3 hours at the airport, I felt like I was in hell – which I am sure is much like Hell would be – no love / concern / understanding, – where everyone constantly trying to take advantage of everyone else – out for themselves – absolute evil. Though many of the ladies probably do not realize what they are doing – as it is so engrained in their culture.
So this Anastasia organization is performing a huge disservice – promoting, propagating, generating a HUGE amount of corruption and profiting tremendously from it – a major MAJOR SCAM and DISASTER – for all – the young people growing up there as well as the ripped off men.
OK I will test this site and let all the world knows if it’s a scam or not. I’ve been talking with a girl named Elena ID # 1677116 for over 3 years now. I’m disabled in my foot so I cannot go to Ukraine. I’m Honest as Honest can be. IM asking customer service to have Elena be flown to me in USA.
Elena does plan to get married. And customer service please don’t use the excuse she can’t come here for her safety… she will take well care for and 1000 % safe. I want to see if customer Service will prove to the world that they will have Elena flown here within the next 2 weeks.
Now Elena states her boss left to train other realtors in a far area and might stay there to continue to stay there, and a new boss is coming. I’m asking customer service to talk with her boss and tell him were getting married in the States. So far customer service has covered themselves with every excuse in the book.
If she doesn’t arrive here within 6 weeks, I’m coming back on here to let the world know you are 1000% a scam. Elena and I know everything about each other, everything!!! We want to get married. I can’t meet her there I’m disabled!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let’s see if she shows up here in USA in 6 weeks after customer service talks to her boss. Anastasia your company is on the line here to either stay open or close with law suits. I will be back here to give you info. On what happened world, yes you men in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I decided to give this a chance after my ex of 3 years had left me and I wanted to try something new.
Boy, was I in for a shock!
After spending about $1000 on the site and phone calls, I connected with three she sharks (not ladies as the site calls them). I traveled to Ukraine to meet them. The first had totally lied about her English ability. She had it put it to “advanced” on her profile. She knew not a single word in English. Without telling me, she brought an Anastasia interpreter who charged $60.
They insisted on meeting at only this one restaurant, which I did just to be nice. They then ordered the most expensive items and wine on the menu, bringing the bill to $300. They suggested that I take them to another restaurant of their choice the next day (and to that I said no).
The next date turned out even worse. Even though she spoke good English, she brought her cousin again to this restaurant of her choice.
Without asking me and in Russian, they ordered 8 dishes of appetizers!!! and the most expensive wine and entrees on the menu. I finally got so pissed that I got up and intended to leave. They then threatened to call the police on me and holding me hostage in the country. I threw $150 at them got the hell out of there (total bill would have been north of 300 had I stayed).
The third date did not even show up after I refused to meet her at another expensive restaurant of her choice (I suggested meeting instead at a cafe).
Don’t waste your money and stay home. Date women in your own neck of the woods. That’s my advice.
These women think of foreign men who go there as suckers. They have no intention of a relationship either.
They don’t care what you look like, or what you do, they just want to take you for a hell ride and leave you feeling so empty and used at the end. To them, it’s just business and nothing more.
They are in business to extract as much money as possible from unsuspecting men who pay large sums of money for letters, chat, video chat, overpriced gifts, overpriced flowers, phone conversations and romance tours thinking that the girl or girls that they have an online ‘relationship’ with really care about and ‘love’ them.
These girls are being paid to ‘like’ you and are involved in multiple contests and campaigns to win such prizes as a new car, vacations, Ipads, Iphones, computer tablets and even CASH based on the amount of time that they spend in chat. Paul above WAS 100% correct.
Until just a few days ago you could access this site (SVADBA.com/NEWS) and it had laid out there all of the contests and winners for the last TWO years.
ANASTASIA has since rebuilt and recrafted this site so that this information is no longer accessible to anyone that may happen to log on to this site. You must be a woman who is registered there and belong to “CLUB ANASTASIA” Interestingly enough, sometimes ANASTASIA calls these promotions contests, sometimes they call them competitions and sometimes they call them CAMPAIGNS.
DICTIONARY.com gives the meaning of CAMPAIGN as follows: noun 2. a systematic course of aggressive activities for some specific purpose: A SALES CAMPAIGN.
Sometimes ANASTASIA does bring two people together to the point of marriage. Then they heavily advertise this fact as though they were great facilitators of love and happiness. Last year in 2012 according to FORTUNE magazine this company made $110,000,000.00!
As a point of disclosure I do not know if this was NET or GROSS. However I don’t believe that they facilitated $110,000,000.00 worth of genuine love and romance.
My contention is that this company is based on deception, mendacity and sleight of hand. The majority of men that use this website are being manipulated with false promises of love and happiness, while ANASTASIA, the local agencies and the girls themselves are making a tidy profit from the man’s sincerity and gullibility.
For a more lively discussion you might go to Reviewopedia/anastasia and join in on the conversation.
As a point of disclosure, I am not a competitor of ANASTASIA, I am not a former employee, I am not a jilted lover seeking revenge, I am not against dating agencies as a whole and I was a customer of ANASTASIA. I even had some good experiences there interacting with some ‘genuine’ women there.
All that being said,
I fully expect she will call Utah her new home, and we will be a family together. If you join any of these Russian dating sights, I have some very strong recommendations you should live by. You must be realistic about who will have interest in you.
“The age difference, if any” A 10-15 year difference between a man and women is normal in the Ukraine. They want a responsible mature man that wants a family. A man they can count on in life. A man to treat them with respect and kindness.
Their is a 10-1 women to men ration in the Ukraine. For what ever reason,…many men in the Ukraine have a drinking issue, they Love their Vodka!!. Many ladies their do not like this. So,…if you are realistic, not living a fanasty!!
Like a 60 year old man chasing a 22 year old lady!! You have all the odds in your favor to meet the women of your dreams. Is Anastasia a scam,….I can not say yes or no. But, ladies are responsible for their own actions!!
Unfortunately,…if a ladies scams a man he meet from their site. It looks badly on Anastasia. Not all ladies,100%, have real sincere intensions. Common since will tell you this, but if you set standard/guidelines about age and English speaking skills of the lady. You can push your success possibilities up greatly. I am 44 years old, while I was on this site. I refused to spend my time and money getting to know ladies 18-25.
I just did not feel this was realistic!! I did not even feel ok to chat or write ladies 26-28. Only 2, I still had reservations about their age. Over time,…for me… it seemed that ladies at the age of 30 and older, were much more serious about meeting a man to have a relationship with.
Most of the 18-25 are in clubs every weekend!! By ignoring all ladies under the age of 30, requireing the lady to speak English. I meet the lady of my dreams!! I was very lucky on the very first try!!
I can tell you from a personal friends experience in Nikoleav and Odessa, the lack of communication due to the language, is a Mountain you might never be abel to climb. It is very easy to get carried away on this site when 20-25 year old beautiful ladies are writing a 44 year old man.
If you are not careful and choose wisely, you will get your heart and Bank Account broken!!
Good luck to all who read this, best of luck!!
I have some information about anastasiadate.com that I believe proves their business is corrupt. I have briefly read some of your article about the company in the past where you have described things like their fee structure for different services:
And how there is conflicting anecdotal evidence on the web about if their company is fraudulent or not: (http://ukrainiandatingblog.com/2011/10/all-anastasia-brides-fake-paid-registering-chatting/).
However, I think I can prove that at least some of their business practices are dishonest. In this email, I will show you how you can see this for yourself. You will need to create a male member profile on the site though – just an email and a user name are required. Don’t bother filling out the character description or anything else beyond the minimum to gain access to the site.
There is no doubt in my mind that at least some (maybe most) of the ‘chat invitation’ messages inviting male members to live chat are computer generated. You can tell because the computer, well, stuffs up this fraudulent process.
For example, a woman may ask to initiate chat by saying she loves your profile – even when there aren’t any photos or words in your profile. Or an identical ‘chat invitation’ message may be sent, by two different women, one straight after the other. This is a rarer ‘stuff up’, but I have an image of this event saved on my computer – let me know if you want me to send it to you.
Also, as anastasiadate.com currently has a promotion on in which the first three minutes of chat are free, it is currently possible to receive a ‘chat invitation’ from a woman, open the chat window, but not reply (replying to the message starts the 3 minute trial of the service). Sometimes, if you leave such a chat window open and walk away from your computer for a couple of hours, the same ‘chat invitation’ appears in the message box four or five times verbatim, suggesting that the message is being sent by a robot rather than a woman.
Some profiles are fake – and they are really easy to spot, if you know how to search for it.
For example, on asianbeauties.com, another site which belongs to the same company as anastasiadate, Yana’s (asianbeauties ID: 1221290) “Character” text is almost identical to Tingting’s (asianbeauties ID: 1217160).
Yana writes (quote):
Hi, the words from the bottom of my heart ,to the special one who I will share all my rest life together with *^_^*
I am a very faithful girl who is romantic, who has a loving heart, who has a good sense of humor, with me in your life ..Only happiness and love will around you.. If you do not trust i .. I am a girl who is loving, kind, caring, honest, and playful, enjoys life, and loves having fun. Then take the chance and check by yourself 🙂
I want to find someone that is willing to open his heart as I am willing to open mine that the two hearts may beat as one.

My name is Alisa, I am a very faithful girl who is romantic, who has a loving heart, who has a good sense of humor, with me in your life .. Only happiness and love will around you .. If you do not trust it .. Then take the chance and check by yourself 🙂
I want to find someone that is willing to open his heart as I am willing to open mine that the two hearts may beat as one.
So will you be the special one?
So you can see, it appears that the character description of these two ladies has only been changed very slightly, but in essence, are identical.
(You can use your Anastasia date name and password to gain access to Asian beauties. I’m sure you worked that out on your own.)
On these websites, the male users have to pay credits to view videos of the women. It is possible to estimate how many women have a video attached to their profile, using the search function of the website. The results are below:
--Profiles in anastasiadate: 33512
--Profiles in anastasiadate with video: 8422
--Profiles in amolatina: 8956
--Profiles in amolatina with video: 2048
--Profiles in asianbeauties: 41317
--Profiles in asianbeauties with video: 13337
--Profiles in africanbeauties: 8949
--Profiles in africanbeauties with video: 1151
It would seem strange that the percentage of women with a profile video is only 32% at best.
Unfortunately, (for anastasiadate and the other websites, not so much us) it is possible to view a female member’s video without paying credits for it by manipulating the web address used to load it. In doing this, you learn many of the videos are devoid of any meaningful content about the women, which is sad.
Take Nataliya’s (AnastasiaDate ID: 1760884) video Reading a Book for instance¬. It shows Nataliya, um, reading a book. Fascinating. The only thing that provides more insight into a woman’s personality than a video of a girl doing nothing more than reading, are those videos of them doing nothing but ironing. I’m sure you agree.
In all seriousness, there appears to be a formula to many of the profile videos on the site. First of all, the woman in the video will say something like: “Hello! My name is (name). My profile is only on (website, e.g. anastasiadate.com)”. Then the video will show the girl doing whatever the title of the video states (cooking, walking outside, posing, doing housework, etc.).
My criticism is that these sorts of videos do not give any deep insight into what the girl is about. Why have such a superficial video on your profile at all? Could the sole reason be just to make money?
If you would like to see some of these videos, I can send you some. Maybe I could even send you the web code that allows you to look at them yourself, if you promise to only use it for the purposes of niceness.
Once a male member has created a profile on anastasiadate.com (or any of the other dating websites mentioned above) that member will begin to receive unsolicited emails from the female members of the site which expand a little bit on the details they have placed in their profiles.
This is the case even if the male member has left his profile description empty. So basically, when you sign up, they spam your email inbox, possibly crowding out any women who have taken the time to write a meaningful letter.
The girls who have their profile on anastasiadate.com receive a discount benefits card which they can use to receive discounts on goods sold in Ukraine. You can read the details of the program here: http://www.svadba.com/club/
So, the question is which girls are members of anastasiadate because they want to find love, and how many only signed up because they wanted the benefits card?
As far as I am aware, anastasiadate.com, and the sites similar to it, does not publish the number of couples which arise from their service, beyond the anecdotes which appear of their website.
Finally, to my knowledge, anastasiadate has not had its business practices audited by any external party to assess if its business practices are in keeping with any benchmark. Troubling, anastasiadate.com appears to police its own anti-scam policy, so who is to say how effective it is?
That said, they have mostly been quite attractive, with adult children. I think they are believably looking for a man to form a relationship.
Younger women in their thirties, with small children still at home looking for a father for their children. Also many avery pretty, and I can believe that they are willing to give an older man a chance, especially if he can help them leave Ukraine, and hopefully provide a better future for their children. As to the longevity of such a match, I don’t know how optimistic to be.
I’d be very cautious, and in any case, though I am in excellent health, sexually active, and in a very secure financial position, I wouldn’t think that such a relationship would survive very long.
Out of the hundreds of messages I have received, only one of them appeared to be genuinely written especially to me, by someone who had actually read my profile.
I also share the skepticism of those who doubt the sincerity of the girls on the chat area, though. If I performed a search on a glamorous young gal who was attempting to chat with me, I invariably found that she was not interested in men my age. So why the chat?
I also think that there is considerable interest in leaving (especially Eastern Ukraine), and many girls are willing to do or promise anything to do so. I think one must see clearly that any such relationship is not likely to succeed.
Consider: if you are a 5, I think you would be well-advised to steer clear of 10’s. However, as a Western man, you do offer some advantages. So be realistic, and you might just find a sincere, wonderful 7-8, who would make any spoiled western woman seem like chopped liver.
Finally, as I speak Russian, I don’t really have any problems with talking directly to Russians/Ukrainians, but I was curious about the site.
I speak Russian (i.e. I am very well understood by Ukrainians who are in essence all fluent in Russian) and know my way around there quite well, i.e. no naive or easy to be fooled American etc.
AnastasiaDate is a cleverly structured and cleverly operated yet still a FAKE business and $$ milking scheme with nothing to offer as far as actually communicating with any bona fide dating/marriage interested females in Ukraine or Russia.
Also notice: There are no, even pretended “success stories” on their website …. Because there are no real in person dates taking place to start with.
You are in essence lead to waste your credit card charges on silly online “chat” where you do not communicate with females interested in finding a date, not to mention a marriage candidate.
Females – and some males – are just typing – in general non-committal, idle blah-blah of shallow, routine nature with the only and sole objective: to keep the clock running and your “credits” you naively purchased AND are in bait-and-switch illegal trick “automatically” billed for in $20 steps.
In essence, the “noble” AnastadiaDate is credit card on or beyond law-edge milking operation similar to porno-sites.
Women are not real and there is NONE of them actually interested in meeting you over there because this is not why AnastasiaDate is in business.
And if you are so persistent and travel to the town where your make-believe “lady” supposedly resides and ask to meet her (again via $$ billing, credit card charges clicking website of AD) you will get:
--made up excuses why she is not available to meet you at the best - when you are really horny for this fake operation and you are still spending $$
--via AD "chat" while in a hotel over there, they send you a "sweeper" a "step-in" for that beautiful girl you "know" from your online chats.
FCC and Australian authorities should have taken this operation out of business long time ago.
How do I know this I do biometrics facial recognition iris recognition I can tell the difference between a pre-recorded video in a live video I found 95% of all videos put out from Russianbride.com Anastasiadate.com and charmdate.com I also hired private investigators and had a lot of government officials friends of mine from the Ukrainian government help me in this experiment.
What this mafia own company does which is out of Moscow in offices in New York City for the United States they should be close down by the Attorney General’s office. They are purposely fraudulently taking a vantage of you.
Most girls can be found on VK Instagram and Facebook Instagram you can track their locations and there are times where they’re at each picture they take so how can they be online live when they’re in Hong Kong with their boyfriend at a market?
True also Anastasia date controls flowers presents and gifts with a bout a 500% markup why do they do this because this way they can have the girl come in get their flowers take a picture leave the flowers and go back to their boyfriends that’s right the majority are already married or have a live-in boyfriend’s I have proof 100% proof I had private investigators follow the girls I was also able to get their passports cell phone cell phone records their boyfriends names their cell phone numbers and much more.
I also videotaped and check all algorithms against the pictures and found out the videos are 100% the same videos they switched him off every three days the girls will pop in once every two weeks and A live session.
Then they will leave again get paid money in the fake girls will take over.
Anastasia date always tries to blame the girl like it’s the girl who’s doing the fraud when in fact It’s 100% them same with charm date hundred percent them all who is interested in doing a class action lawsuit please contact me is time to put the scumbags out of business.
AnastasiaDate Experience: Isn’t it odd that every other dating site that is legitimate does not forbid the exchange of contact details between its members but AD does.
AD tries to claim some marriage act forbids it to release such information. Utter BS! If that were true then every other dating site would be in breach of the law for permitting the exchange of contact details. And even if there were such a law as I am not an American it does not apply to me!
Isn’t it odd that as soon as I log on to AD I immediately get chat requests with phrases and questions that no woman could type so quickly.
That means they are auto responders that send out chat prompts to men logging on. Then when I asked an AD woman what she just sent to me she has no idea what was sent to me prior to my sending my first message back to her.
Isn’t it odd that if I have already corresponded with a woman on AD and then just a week later I engage in chat with her she has no idea who I am.
It’s as though she is completely and utterly clueless of me. If she truly wrote me the letter personally herself surely she would remember my profile and therefore start the chat session following on with what I had written to her in my letter. But again she is utterly clueless!
I am not against AD in any way. I realize now it is nothing more than a pay for chat service. The women get what they want out of it, the men think they are searching for a prospective future wife but will never actually find her there and the site operators well they are laughing all the way and making a fortune out of it. Good luck to them and the women if that makes you think you are providing a valuable service to humanity!
I now no longer buy credits on AD and have left the site. I wish it was a real site as many women there are absolutely stunning but I know it is not what it is promoting itself to be.
AD Customer Service please don’t bother replying to this comment as nothing you say will change the experience that I encountered on your site over more than one year.
And I still see many of the same profiles on the AD site as they had up over 2 or 3 years ago. If those attractive women were sincerely searching for a husband from a foreign country they would NOT still be single years later writing the same stupid letters and the same stupid chat comments “I am here for love, what you here for?” and “Are you here only for 3 minutes?”
Because you get the first three minutes for free now but then that means those women don’t get any benefit out of it either unless they entice you to speak to them beyond those three minutes. If they got no money or rewards or prizes, or whatever out of it then why do many women ask me if I will even speak to them beyond that time or those that get frustrated with me if I don’t.
If you really want to find a wife from the Ukraine it would be cheaper to buy an airplane ticket and book an apartment for 3 to 6 months and go there and place an ad in their local magazines or social media sites or go to the bars and mingle.
You will surely have more luck and FUN that way than through AD via their stupid chat service where you can barely write a few sentences and you have been charged $8 to $10 for the session as it costs so much per minute depending on the exchange rate you are in as well.
There is a usefull website vk.com which is basicly the russian version of facebook. You can track down all ladies there because this website has a detailed search engine which allows you to look on name, city and date of birth…..
I tracked down more than 40 anastasia ladies there, ladies who sent me letters thru the anastasiadate that they liked me very much bla bla bla….and guess what, NONE of these ladies replied to me or wanted to talk to me on that VK network. Some of them were married even.
There was a nice girl who did talk to me but she only went to the agency for a free photoshoot but never sent any letter there. When i showed her the letter ‘she’ wrote to me, she had to laugh because her father would kill her if she would marry a foreigner…hahaha
I have made screenshots of all the fake profiles for legal purposes.
I will not go into details
I am on this site near 3 years now, I never has spent one cent for any chat or email in this time. I only have analyzed what is real and what is not real in this dating site. I know many what is wrong here, also some woman, are not real here. I have checked this site also with my friends, the software and more.
There are many emails in my name, never send from me. Also when woman try to start a chat with me, the same second the same woman start a chat with my friends, the same words, only the name is changed to my friends name, good software. I know advertisement and marketing very well and this site has a very good software to make only profit with stupid men.
When my friends register here and write only first time the name and birthday in the profile, no picture nothing, after some hours more than 70 emails was send to my friends inbox. Also many women starting direct the live chat, what a joke.
I know real woman from Russia and the Ukraine, this woman will never do like this, this woman much more intelligent and educated then this page and the software. Also it is very clear that this software send the emails and start live chats himself and not a woman, like I see this myself again and again with the emails that was send with my name. How can somebody trust this dating site?
I know that here also real woman that want to have a real partnership and trust this dating site and that all is real, all what I can say and that is the truth, many is not real here and the honest woman and man will be cheated to make money.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You already can deduct this from the outrages prices of their “services”. e.g. about 4 euro’s for sending a letter to a girl and again the same amount for reading the reply.
For chatting with a girl the charge is about 40 cents (10 credits) for every minute. Now a bit substantial chat is easily about 30 minutes, so about 12 euro’s. They say it cost that much because of the premium service. Of course a non-argument because it is just the lines that have to be good and when you complain about a connection they immediately say that they are not responsible for the ladies connection quality.
Another sign is that you get spammed with letters of young girls (and I am in my 50 ties) in their twenties and below. Answer of the site is that these girls just are seeking for their soulmate, bla, bla.
Another sign. I have had until now frequently chat and lettercontact with a lady who wrote to me a letter at the very beginning I was at the site. She, as all others, was seeking for a man, a soulmate. After many letters and chats (and so a lot of money) I wanted also contact outside of the site, at first instance by privat mail. You can only exchange private addresses or contact information when you send (by Anastasiadate) a present to the girl.
All other attemts to write your private address or mailadres is just censored. In letters and in chats (They really censore your messages) With that present you can write a note with all you want, so also contact addresses.
Now also the presents are ridiculous in price. For a little bottle of perfume you have to pay about 200 euro, flowers and fruitbaskets not much less.
The girl I meant and of who I was very fond and she was fond of me (she told repeatedly) sent me indeed occainsionly a short message, but preferred to be at the site. And she preferred chatting instead of letters. But after a while I just asked to have chat contact outside the site, by Skype or maybe Whatsapp, or whatever. But she was hesitating about it. Than one day I sent her a link to the Russian Skype site.
The excuse I became was that she had pushed the link and than she became a virus on her computer and her computer just crashed and she had to repair him. So she decided that she would not do it and would stay only on the Anastasia site, to chat with me. To my question what computer she now was using because I saw her regularly online, she told it was her neighbours computer.
Now this experience I have had in more or less the same way with 2 other ladies, who all said they were looking for a man, who all were very fond of me, did not want to lose me, etc.
The remark of you Krystyna, that the site must be ok, not a total scam, because otherwise it would not exist so long, is a bit naïve I think. Every man using the site to search a woman, is mosltly very vulnerable and does not want to see at first instance that it is just fake. He wants to keep up the romantic idea, likes the adoration that women speak out towards him, does not want to spoil that great dream.
When it comes to the realization that all was a ” ïdee fix” they stand alone, have no real proof of scamming or criminal intentions. Where should they go to? Anastasiadate just denies and say they are honest, have good intentions and ask for proof.
If you have proof of individual cases the site just blames the girl and their “agency” and just delete the girls profile. They than say that their anti-scam policy works well and that they take action when their is proof. You can do nothing to them if you are alone. Many man know this of course and just leave the site. And new man are coming as customers and have to experience it all again by their selves.
Their is no independent tool to measure the results of Anastasiadate, I mean in terms of succeses of matching. The only party who maybe could give such figures I Anastasiadate. You can guess how accurate these figures than could be..
They earn millions and can easily take legal action when needed against individual persons. And what if legal action by a individual is taken? What is the proof? Where has he to go? They have an address (I think just a postbox because of low tax obligations in Cyprus) and their organisation is in Moscou.
So what could you do? And on top of that. An organisation who makes millions wants to defend it. So I would not be surprised that a lot of the positive comments of that side are also fake, so posted by the site itself.
The whole Anti-fraud department they say they have is to create the image they are reliable, etc. It is all so decorated to distracted.
Only thing that could be done is action, demasking the site, the organisation by gathering as much as possible proof and try to let federal, government or better government law organisations take action to this site. Another thing to do is gathering as much as possible disappointing users of the site and build up a website and publish with evidence all what is wrong, so damask them.
Would like to see complaints, experiences of others.
I have spent over $2000 on chats, most of them pretty meaningless and not leading to anything.
In summary, I would say this:
On AnastasiaDate (being honest or a scam), the actual information a male can put in a profile is very limited.
It would be much nicer and helpful if the profile on both the male and female side would be more comprehensive. So if AD was really serios about match-making, they would allow both of men and women to describe themselves better.
AnastasiaDate does send out automated letters and automated (“fake”) chat requests. One day I had seven letters within a matter of minutes, although my profile was empty.
I also get chat requests that say how much they enjoyed my profile, although there I appear 112 years old without any info in the fields.
This is totally counter-productive and a huge disservice to the serious ladies there. There is also no way of disabling the chat requests. You get invites from ladies who don’t match your search criteria at all, which is a total waste.
Sure, their translation service is appreciated, but you never know what of your letter actually arrives in a translated form on the other side – and vice versa. Chatting is expensive and can be very aggravating when there are delays in the reply, as the clock just keeps ticking.
Paying 10 credits (between $3-$7.5) for photos attached to your letter is also not exactly cheap. So, don’t go there if money is an issue. Although I do have the money, I always felt pressurised when chatting to ladies, hence my efforts to continue off-site.
The ultimate test if a woman is real and really interested in you is in how she responds to you asking her to take the communication off-site to Facebook, Skype or email. If she doesn’t, and language is not an issue, then you know she’s not really into you, otherwise she would make an effort.
I had contact with about 50 of them, of which I have 3 on Facebook, of which 2 are too young and one doesn’t speak English very well. That alone speaks volumes. (I ‘gave’ all of them my name and told them that I am an open book on the Internet – just google my name and you will see.
So they could see what I do and what I am about, before getting in touch.)
Many ladies are afraid to give out their personal details, because they think it’s not allowed. I checked with AnastasiaDate, and they said that it’s ok to exchange details. Their website only says that they are not allowed to share contact details in the profile, which obviously makes sense.
Words like google or Facebook get out, which is also hindering communication. Obviously AD wants to keep men on site and chatting, but once again, this is neither fair nor conducive.
Women who engage on AnastasiaDate should be properly informed that the site’s language is English, and that their chances of finding the right man are pretty much NIL if they don’t speak at least some English.
They should also be informed about Western culture and about the cost the man incurs when on the site, because they – at least – said – to me – that they don’t know that the man pays.
There is info on the Net, where you can see that they recruit women to chat with me. So it’s less about love and more about money. After all, all those professional studio and nature shots with expensive clothes need to be paid for.
I know a girl who now has 11 videos online, is up late all night at the agency office and gets upset when I tell her that she’s after the money. 18 years old! She should sleep at night, not chat to men whose language she doesn’t even speak.
So that’s just a bit of feedback from me.
Yes, Anastasia does use their anti-scam program and if proven reimburses fees or costs. I wrote to, chatted and meet with a lady over four years but on trips to Odessa was very standoffish (un affectionate) and avoided commitment but yes had fallen for her. Now like most scams….” can’t meet going to care for sick Aunty in Russia))))
One day while in chat I did an instant call. Trust me, this works beautifully. She answered)). Ready though her answer, ”Hi…oh I just arrived in Odessa”. Me, ” when did you arrive Odessa?” Her, “Today”.
Now switch back to the chat screen type. “Elena, where are you?”. Elena answers, ”I tell you Russia”
Ron: What you doing?
Elena: Walk with sick Aunty. now back in apartment!
Ron: Oh how’s the weather in Russia?
Elena: Not nice cold. Now switch back to phone call…
Ron: So Elena you are in Odessa?
Elena: Yes…”da” …
Ron: So who is chatting to me on line now telling me all about your day in Russia?
Elena: What you talking about?? Switch to chat…
Ron: Who are you? I am talking to Elena now on phone in Odessa.
You guessed it)))…. Straight off line.
Now whose is lying…Anastasia? Agency, lady,.. Conclusion all to a degree as the all are making money.
I took screen shots and phone times and numbers, and complained, now to their credit Anastasia reimbursed over $4000. This must of hurt but it’s a drop in the hat when I think of the hours away from work, flights, travelling 30 hours each way on flights, dinners, etc. etc. I am lucky money is money but I “HATE” scams.
Pop ups are computer programmed. Not real. Ladies are paid to be on cam (by agents, not necessary Anastasia). Agencies’ translators write the letters to you, not the woman. Until it gets serious, the Ukrainian woman you think you are writing too has no idea until you talk about meeting or try to call. If you try to call and they cannot get I touch with the woman, then she is busy, ill or out of the city on business, have don’t have jobs interesting??
Many women get paid by agencies to keep their profiles on. Think about it a beautiful woman is great for Anastasia if also gives the agents (distributors) more power with Anastasia. So it’s not their interest to lose any.
Many woman are on multiple sites regardless of Anastasia’s stance…really so what. So are you! So… Chat is a waste of time…complete lies and the biggest scam. Letters are very close to chat!! Everything as already stated … is to keep you away from personal contact and exchange of personal details.
Ok so write but have quick plan to come during tour. And see who meets… Phone… in they don’t want to exchange phone or e-mail details. Ditch them as the all have two phones and e-mail… Don’t accept excuses.
There are many genuine women here…but it’s hard to navigate the corrupt agencies. Other scams experienced… Chats by agents or translators. Letters as above. Meetings arranged where woman knows nothing of the ten letters previously exchanged. Woman using other woman side ties to communicate…you are not talking to who you think you are!! Interpreters’ friends split money with the woman. On and on…
How do I know??? Five years thousands of dollars later… good friends with two x interpreters from Anastasia and two women who have left the site disillusioned with the lies they were asked to adhere to.
I have met some nice ladies but in reflection using this site to do it was not worth it.
I was shocked to see that she had a profile on the AnastasiaDate site, which I discovered soon after I returned home.
I complained to the AnastasiaDate site, and basically the AnastasiaDate staff told me to prove it. Ha! I replied the best I could, with photos from our date to confirm the woman’s identity and with a copy of her hand-written phone number so you could call her directly.
I also provided some of the stories she told of her football star husband, whom I briefly met when he came in the taxi to pick up the 2 girls at the end of our date. I thought the AnastasiaDate staff could call her up and confront her with the story details, the photos, etc…
Instead, AnastasiaDate finally wrote me 2 weeks later and said the girl provided a copy of her passport which proved that she was not married. Ha again! Probably a 3 month old copy from before her wedding! No refunds or sympathy from the AnastasiaDate site.
I continued to use the AnastasiaDate site, with more caution, but I only found heavily-photoshopped photos, “pro daters” just like the earlier complaint from the doctor above, and “no-show” women who disappear when I finally make it to Ukraine.
In my journeys to Ukraine, I even met an agency owner who told me his agency does not want real dates, just letter-writing and chat. He doesn’t want to lose the revenue generated by his most popular girls, so he lets them keep half of the money the translator receives for the date.

In other words, after the date, the girls “go around the corner” and split the proceeds. They even have a term for this – “quick money” – a perk for the girl for working up the chats and writing the letters.
From my experiences with the AnastasiaDate site, I would lower the AnastasiaDate estimate of good girls from 99% to under 50%. Basically, it’s a cesspool of scamming, pro-dating and insincerity. Too bad most men don’t realize it until they are victims with much lighter wallets and broken hearts.
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?
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.
I purchased your guide and have found it to be invaluable. I’m a very good looking man who just seeks to find a beautiful woman with simpler values than I can find in the US. I’ve grown tired of all the lies and scheming in the US, so I’ve begun looking elsewhere in the world. I’m world traveled, so I do have a basis of experience in many parts of the world, but not Ukraine.
I’ve found a number of my favorite women from Anastasiadate.com on VK.com and have communicated with them. Unfortunately, not one of them says they are on AnastasiaDate.com.
The usual report is that someone paid them for modeling and now uses their identity for the dating service… and they get no royalties or have any contact with anyone. A couple of girls even tried to find a way to stop the use of their name but were told they had no legal right since its a US based company.
I hope you can read this message. My name is Marcelo, I am 26 years old and speak of São Paulo City, Brazil. Sometime I found AnastasiaDate on the internet and I signed up without knowing it (no sources of it in Brazil). The result: in just under 3 months, 2 months of account activity I received around 200 messages of girls from Eastern Europe.
I understand that there must be many women who want to start their communication with you. But I truly hope that you will open this letter and understand that a person who is writing to you can make your life bright and happy.” – “I am interested in you and it would be a great pleasure for me to know you better. Let me do the first step in hope that we will continue correspondence and I will hear from you soon.” (sic)
If love and passion are your desires you must realize that I am your woman! If you desire hot romantic nights and even days, then I am your woman! And if you want to have a romantic crazy love that defies all rational behavior, but yet is meaningful and true, then I am your woman! I you can be kind, caring, loving, passionate and always faithful and looking for someone who feels the same, then I am here! No need to write a million letters, just knock on my door and say you will love me forever! The rest will be history of the greatest love story, full of desire, passion, and love! hugs and kisses and so much more. Yours, Yana” (sic)
I am new on this site.And I’m looking for my soul mate here.I think its great time for me to find a husband. How are you today?? I like your profile and photo very much.)) You are great and handsome man.))) Do you like to travel))))))))))))) Have you ever been in Kiev? You are welcome to come to Kiev!I can show you around. Take care. Kisses. Maria.” (sic)
A charming Ukrainian girl is writing to you, my Prince! I am looking for a man who would really respect a woman in the highest degree, who would become a caring and loving partner of mine, and I believe in OUR love!!!!!" (sic)
All these messages comes from gorgeous women. Beautiful, with this additional availability, with huge messages to someone you do not know can only be a lie. I always thought this a scam and I never gave importance.
The lack of information about this in Brazil and anyone with consciousness believe it may not have some truth to that. By appearing to be more surreal, reading your blog I saw that there may be some truth to that. You must have the minimum criteria, but there may be some truth in this service. As written in a post, it is unlikely that a website with almost 20 years of existence is a lie and I believe in this.
I want to thank you for being my first reliable source to talk about AnastasiaDate.
By the way, believes in some of these posts? What you think about that? Can you give me your opinion?
Thank you so much!
I have been using the website AnastasiaDate.com for a while. Last month, I made a trip to Odessa. Tried to arrange some meetings and something that I am not quite understand.
Case 1: Had very pleasant online chat with 3 ladies. They promised to meet and they stood me up. There is one even stood me up twice.
Case 2: One lady I have very promising letters and chat. When we met, she is stone cold and I sense very negative attitude from the beginning. The only smile I saw is when the meeting is over. The interpreter is not very good and she said she is from other town. At the end of meeting the lady ask the interpreter to ask me for taxi money. I give her 200 Uah and she ask for more so I give her another 100 Uah.
Case 3: A lady took me to an Italian restaurant. Ordered wine, caviar and seafood. The meal costed 4000 Uah (around $400). I wonder it is normal in Ukraine for the first date. Of course I also need to pay around 1000 Uah for the interpreter.
Case 4: A lady which I had a few letters before which is pretty cold actually. When we met, she become more friendly and she speak some English. However, apart from the interpreter, there is also a young man claimed to be her brother. She took me to a seafood restaurant. That meal costed 3000 Uah.
Since I have another meeting, this one only last for three hours. But she offered to me a few days later at 10 pm. I wait for her at the place she set and the first one showing up is another interpreter, then the lady and her brother. (interpreter and brother again) Another big meal, of course.
I am leaving the next day and have to leave for airport by 4 pm. She called at 1 pm and said she want to spend time with me before I left. She asked me to go to some shopping mall and tell me she will be there by 3 pm. At 3:10 pm, she called and said she is sitting in a Japanese Restaurant. When I get there, she and her brother is there. After a while, I said I need to go so I put down 500 Uah.
She said let her check the orders and she said they ordered about 600 something Uah and she need taxi money as she took taxi to come to see me so I put down another 500 Uah.
Please give me your opinion as to whether a normal date with Ukrainian Ladies would be like this.
After having a few experiences myself and reading some of those reviews, I decided to tell about some of my own experiences with women met on Anastasiadate.com.
Two years ago, I had contact with a girl from Moldova, but we didn’t manage to meet at all – I waited for about ½ hour at McDonald’s after receiving her suggestion about a meeting; but she didn’t show up.
Since I shortly after got the opportunity to meet with another girl I had corresponded with, this time in Ukraine, I decided not to hang around in Moldova but rather continue my trip to Ukraine right away and meet with this other girl.
We spent a couple of hours together during three days in a row – first day was a relatively expensive dinner, too – her interpreter and female friend were there as well – and the next couple of days we went to a park and had a reasonable breakfast. It didn’t work out however, and after a while we stopped corresponding.
As of this moment I’ve just met a third girl in Ukraine. We walked through the pedestrian lanes initially and had something as simple as a pizza later, and the next day we met again, taking another walk as the day before.
I got her cell phone number the first day and even her mail address the next, so we have the opportunity to communicate by other means now; not just via Anastasiadate, which – in my opinion – is relatively expensive.
Anyway, now I have to make the choice about paying for her passport and visa, as well as her loss of income when she’s going to meet me some time soon. I trust her though; she was very genuine when we met and the look in her eyes and her smile when we had that pizza, told me a enough to place my bets on this girl.
I’ve heard and read quite a lot about scamming and I’ve even corresponded with some from Russia – one girl suddenly wanted me to send money so that her grandmother could have an operation. Of course I refused this instantly and shortly after we broke contact.
One of my friends happened to chat with a girl from Africa for some time – he later sent her some 1.500 USD so she could come to Denmark, and he never heard from her again.
Anyway, I have a good feeling about the girl I’ve just met. She seems genuine and honest, and I believe it’s impossible to fake the look in her eyes and that smile – the look that told me she had to be the one. c”,)
