How to Recognize Ukrainian Dating Scam

Hello Krystyna,

One month ago, I met a girl on the single baltic site. She is quoted as 100 percent reliable. She is Doctor (Pediatrician) in a hospital.

I have very good feelings with this girl and we seem to share a lot of things and have common points despite other girls I met on this site.

TOP3 Sites For Russian & Ukraine Dating

Our story started on dating site

I got her email address and now we are talking by email for about one week. I also received her name I checked that she has a Facebook profile wich fully correspond to her so she seems to be a moreless real person. She also have girl friends married to people in Holland on her profile which could explain why she would be interested in coming here.

The problem is that she cannot read and write English at all which was a big surprise for me since I could not imagine that an educated person as a Doctor could not know one word of English, is it common in Ukraine (I am from Belgium) ?

So we start communicating in Russian by using an automatic translator.
The last email I received was:

Привет мой милый!!!! прости что вчера написала тебе так поздно, замоталась по работе, но постоянно о тебе думала!! ты мое солнышко!! и когда я думаю о тебе и что мои чувства взаимны – нет счастливей человека на свете чем я!!! просто знай это!!!

милый мне так приятно что ты готов выучить язык ради меня – только ради меня – мне так приятно!!! ты себе даже не представляешь!! читая твое письмо я всегда улыбаюсь! и даже сейчас когда пишу тебе свое письмо!)))

милый мне приятно что ты хочешь поддержать меня с курсами английского, я узнаю какие курсы есть у меня в городе и напишу тебе в следующем письме подробно о них, хорошо? и мы с тобой вместе решим что мы будем делать, хорошо любимый?

если говорить о животном, я думаю что ты или белый орел, или дельфин – белый орел очень свободолюбивая птица нов то же время верная и целеустремленная. а если дельфин – то ты любишь близких тебе людей и ты очень дружелюбный. кем ты хочешь быть больше?)))))))))

милый, я желаю тебе хорошего дня!!! надеюсь скоро услышать от тебя!! Поцелуй за меня Джессику и крепко обними!!
шлю тебе мои самые сладкие поцелуи!!

твоя голубка Лена

Translation into English:

Hello my dear!! sorry that yesterday I wrote to you so late, I had so much work, but I was constantly thinking about you! you are my sunshine! and when I think about you and that my feelings are mutual – there is no happier person in the world than I am! You should just know it!

Dear, I am so pleased that you wish to learn the Russian language for me – just for me – I’m so pleased! You currently have no idea about my feelings! Reading your letter, I always smile! and even now when I write my letter to you!)))

My dear, I am pleased that you want to support me with English classes, I will find out what classes I have in my town and I’ll write you a letter with all the details about them, okay? and we’ll decide together what we will do, sll right, darling?

If we are talking about an animal, I think that You are or a white eagle, or dolphin. White Eagle is a bird which is loving freedom but at the same time this bird is loyal and dedicated. And if you are the dolphin, that means that you love to be close to people and you are very friendly. Who do you want to be more?)))))))))

dear, I wish you good day! I hope soon to hear from you! A kiss for Jessica from me and tightly hug!
I send you my sweetest kisses!

Your darling Lena

How to understand Ukrainian mentality

So I guess she will soon request me to send her some money to learn English. Otherwise she would not request my agreement. I am very surprised that a woman would ask me my agreement to study or do something, this is not the way it goes in my country. Here, women do not ask agreements to the men for that.

Since she is 30 years old without children, very beautiful and that I am 42 years old with one child, I am really wondering if she will not try to scam me. I do not know the mentality of Ukrainian girls but I know that here a girl like this would never show any interest in me.

I hope its not a scam

It is very difficult for me to have my own idea since I had a lot of deep talks with this woman and she seems to be very interested in my life, daughter, personality, feelings … and never talked me about money till now excepting to know if she could get a good salary as pediatrician here in Belgium.

May I ask your opinion about it?

Thank You,

Best Regards,

Xavier

Hello Xavier,

First I would like to say you thank you for sharing your experience.

To your questions:

  • The problem is that she cannot read and write English at all which was a big surprise for me since I could not imagine that an educated person as a Doctor could not know one word of English, is it common in Ukraine (I am from Belgium)

I would say it is common for Ukraine because the education system is different than in Europe. The students have no possibility to go to Europe to study there; thus the level of foreign language knowledge is very low. I know the Ukrainian medical students must learn Latin at the university. That is all. English is not necessary for them. English knowledge is a real problem in Ukraine and Russia.

The first sign of scam - she asked money!

  • So I guess she will soon request me to send her some money to learn English. Otherwise she would not request my agreement. I am very surprised that a woman would ask me my agreement to study or do something, this is not the way it goes in my country. Here, women do not ask agreements to the men for that.

I made an online research how much doctors in Ukraine earn. I found out that pediatricians in Ukrainian hospitals earn about $150-200 per month, therefore the woman has no chance to pay for private language courses. Usually, the woman is waiting for an agreement to get money from a man for payment of her English classes.

Did you talk to her about learning English? Because she writes that she is happy about that you want to support her in this thing. Or did she decided that you agree?

I would advice you if you are not sure it is better to go to Ukraine first and meet your woman in person. It is simple to go to Ukraine for 2-4 days (you do not need a visa for Ukraine) and decide if this woman is a potential match for you or not. After that you can decide if you want to support her or not.

Ukrainian women are interested in older men

  • Since she is 30 years old without children, very beautiful and that I am 42 years old with one child, I am really wondering if she will not try to scam me.
    I do not know the mentality of Ukrainian girls but I know that here a girl like this would never show any interest in me.

Yes it is possible that Ukrainian women are interested to find an older man from abroad. The reason is that too many beautiful women in the same area leaves the men in their homelands very spoiled. As a result, many women in their 30’s and 40’s are less appealing than younger women.

The men are aware that they can date or marry a woman much younger than their age group, so they do not try getting to know a woman who is their own age.

How risky is looking for a man abroad

Women from the Ukraine or Russia who are in their 30s and 40s find it difficult to find a man in their home country who is nice, willing to settle down and will remain faithful after the marriage because temptation is rampant in their home country.

In my opinion, Ukrainian women turn to the Internet and look for love abroad as a result of the complications of finding a loyal partner at home. These women are not only loving and tender hearted, but they offer the comforts of home and experience of family life that many other women might not offer. Modern Ukrainian men might not want the responsibility of a family and only a few are willing to offer the love Ukrainian women are looking for.

I know that Ukrainian women in their 30s and 40s are looking for a husband abroad who will love and cherish her, just as any woman hopes to find in her marriage. Taking a risk on a soulmate from abroad is worth it if she finds the man who will love her.

In final I would advice

to tell her that first you want to meet her in person and then you can support her because you are sure about her serious intentions. If she is interested in your personality (not in your money), she will understand that.

TOP3 Sites For Russian & Ukraine Dating

4 thoughts on “How to Recognize Ukrainian Dating Scam”

  1. Sad truth that most of people on dating sites are fake. Don’t know even what makes people scam others. Its hard to judge. But I believe that real people on dating sites do exist. Me personally suffered from scam couple of times. But then I understood that its strictly my fault. On internet just like in real life you need to be careful and take precautions when meeting new people. I analyzed my problems and kept looking for nice dating sites.

    1. Been there, done that, brother! I finally caught onto it when someone that claimed to be a flight attendant with the airline I’m an independent travel agent for contacted me and began leading me on.

      After a few attempts to meet in person I contacted the airline with her photo and her information (screenshots of her profile). They informed me that she did not work for us, and as such are pursuing legal action against Ukrianiancharm.com for using their name in their scam.

      I found out the hard way and confirmed it when I told “her” that the only way to contact me was through the airline employees’ bulletin board, including my airline email address.

      She ghosted me nearly immediately.

      Go figure. Caught in the act and ran like a scalded dog.

  2. I made the mistake over the last 3 years to use a site called Ukrainiancharm.com to find romance.

    It has been a scam all along, and I just realized that. Once “eligible” to receive the contact information (spending 3000 credits at a cost of approximately $1332 per each woman), I have figured out that over three years I have spent over $7500 trying to find a loving relationship in real life, only to be told by each lady chatting that they’re “not ready yet” to meet in real life.

    This has been a constant red flag that I have ignored, until I met one who supposedly works for the same company I work for. After chatting for a couple of years and never meeting her in person, even through my job with the company, I decided to check the employee database through HR with her photo to see if she did, indeed work for us.

    Nope.

    No such person exists in the airline. They’re now aware of this and are taking legal action for the use of their name in an obvious scam. Just wanted to let you know this is going on and has been for three years now with this company.

    I gave her my contact information and told her that if she wants to continue with this conversation she can call me on my company extension. She blocked me immediately, telling me this is, indeed, what is going on by her actions. This website is all about keeping lonely men spending money to think we’re going to be lucky enough to find a relationship. I like working for a major airline with the deep pockets to go after these jerks.

    Please let everyone know that if you have to spend money every time you want to chat then there’s probably a fake company that is defrauding the people on the site.

    Another red flag, in retrospect, is the fact that only the women may post videos, but the men cannot do so at all. And to view a 10-second video costs $20 in credits. Just saying….

    Hi. I need help i am 74 male. My left this earth 18 months ago. I am lonely and empty. I have never felt this before. She was my entire world. I have met a woman on Ukrainian charm. We have so much in common I have a physician she says she is a physician a surgeon. When I talk with her she has all the language. We have been communicating for quite some time and I’ve spent substantial dollars to continue our conversations. Supposedly we both have fallen in love with each other and would like to pursue a life together. She is 60 years old. I think she’s 58 however, our ages are close . At this point, I would love this woman to be with me and spend the rest of my life with her. I need to know that she is real and I want her to know that I am real. All of my friends have said this is a catfish I can’t believe it . Maybe my emotions won’t let me believe it. I want to give her the benefits of the doubt and trust that she is real. I am in Tulsa Oklahoma. She says she is in Miami Florida. She can’t work as a surgeon. She does certain requirements I understand that , therefore she’s working as a hairdresser and I can understand that. Is there anyway you could help me see if this is real or if I’m truly being scammed. I don’t know how to wait for a response from you even though I’m a physician I’m really ignorant when it comes to technology . I hate to admit that I had a huge office staff
    That took care of my technical needs. This woman Kateryna 58 resemble my wife a lot and that’s what attracted me to start talking with her. I did not know what information I can leave you but trust me I want you to help me out and if there is a gratuity to pay, I will gladly pay it please respond and I will figure out how to save the siteM we can move forward
