171 ‘Anastasia Date’ Reviews
Better than being robbed with a gun, and they won't take your iPhone
Without a doubt, the site has loads of profiles with photos of very beautiful women. Unfortunately, whether you read messages, send replies, chat or even view attached photos & videos, this site charges you for pretty much *everything*, and these 'beautiful women' (assuming they're real) use every trick in the book to lure you into reading one more message, writing one more reply, chatting for one more minute and viewing one more photo or video... and all that keeps the AnastasiaDate.com cash register ringing at an alarming rate.
I currently live in Kiev, Ukraine, and I only contacted girls who speak English and live in the exact same city. So lining up a date on this site should have been at least as easy as any of the free sites I've used to find dates in the same place, right? Unfortunately, it wasn't. With the goal of spending as little as possible, simply to verify that this site would lead to at least one real-life date, I spent over $200 USD in just 5 days, received replies from over 40 girls, and ended up with nothing but more invitations to keep emailing and chatting, longer and longer, adding more and more $100+ charges to my credit card.
Additionally, the profiles and messages I saw seemed VERY fake to me, and having used online dating services for years, I can spot a fake a mile away. And the girls almost always write back within 24 hours. Does that sound normal for an online dating site to you? It sure doesn't to me, but I'm sure it helps keep that cash register ringing. When you bring all this up with one of the very friendly customer service people, they'll happily send you a link to their 'anti-scam policy,' which they seem to think should convince us that we're not being scammed. But the fact is, if someone can live in Kiev, speak Russian, and not set up a single date with a girl who lives in the SAME CITY after hearing back from 40+ girls and spending $200+, when free or super-cheap sites like Badoo, OkCupid and VK work perfectly well, it's safe to say that AnastasiaDate falls far, far short of delivering what it promises.
How they fook you
So, guys, I found that in Ukrainian and Russian site, how they use you to earn money.
If you don't read a lot - just can watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p103WzTMMEM
And also here is my reviw:
Mostly time agencies fool foreigners, but in some cases girls also suffer. How they do this?
1. All letters go from their post. And you pay for every letter. Some ukrainian girls don't know language and they need interpreter to write a letter. They can write one thing, but translator can add something from herself - to push you write more and more letters, and of course to pay more and more money to agency.
2. You want to give a gift for you girl. Mostly times foreigners don't know real price and websites where they can order some flowers, jewelery or certificate to SPA-salon. They ask agency about it. If agency has 10-15% of rent - it's normal. But a lot of time they have 200-300% of rent, because foreignres mostly time don't know price.
Also there is a situation, when they deal with dirls, take picture with some gift, but in real life just devide money what you pay them.
3. Woman, that you are speak with, can be man. One 50years old owner of agencies confess, that very often he send letters from himself to other man from the name of woman. Sometimes there are not enough girls for speaking with candidates, so they hire boy. They also speak with you, ask you about money and when you ask for meeting, he refuse and tell that find other candidate...
4. The most dangerous place is Odessa. It's like capital of ukrainian bride, which mostly time wants only money from you.
Lets be fair.............
The whole industry is based on fraud and deception. Anastasia Date is not the only one cashing in on the false romance/marriage industry. All Russian/Ukrainian marriage agencies are just money making schemes that play upon the human need for love and companionship. Education is your best defense.
Good luck guys.......protect your hearts and your wallets!
Amolatina sister site to Anastasia.com
I tried to get costa rican women to appear in the video feature and send more than original pictures of themselves all they did was side step my request each time. My theory is first at this site compared to Anastasia .com with Russian ladies they will send an initial free letter and picture not at Amolatina because of the proximity of the usa and CR they know it's possible you might travel there so they want you to pay for all communication starting out and want to milk you. That confirms why they won't appear in video either because they are afraid you will determine they are a fraud but with common sense without spending money I found it out anyway. Keep in mind the company or the women don't expect you to actually travel there in the first place.
There is always a risk1
Russian women are so different.. I think there are some hunting wallets on this site, BUT, there is always a risk in any relationship.. whether you met her through the internet or in real life. What if a woman truly has a "connection" with you? Don't be too suspicious. But I'm not saying to trust Russian or Ukrainian girls completely, not unless you know them better.
Anastasia.com,Asianbeauties,Amolatina are all scams run by the same company. The women are employees running the scam for them. You are better off taking a plane ride to russia,asia.or latin america and meet real women as opposed to giving your money away,beware I see a lot of positive stories here the scammers come here as well to defend this elaborate scam.
#Anastasiadate Emotional Prostitution Website .. Stay Away
I am on Anastasia since a year, i plan to meet with seven to eight girls, all keep chatting until the day i want to visit kiev and when it was time to meet they all have excuses:
sickness, avoid opening chat, they have work, they are busy, they are with mom and so on, in case you book through site, you just meet on a date of booking and she never show up again ...
drama totally fake and useless,
it is another format of prostitution website, Emotional Prostitution, they don't need you, there are many handsome ukrainian boys to be with .. ukrainian boys are too handsome as well as russian, quality women don't need foreigner !
don't get wrong with beautiful girls chatting you on site, they don't want your face, they want your money, if it is not true why you can't have similar ones on real life to give your her emotion
kiev is beautiful city, with rich people, luxury cars and expensive houses, don't get wrong with economic differences, only frustrated, ugly and bad girls come to these sites , family valued girls don't use these sites, there are exceptions but you better ignore it, very difficult to find it among so many prostitutes,
they have too much makeup and quit different than what they really are, you can try vk.com elenasmodel.com feating.com ukrainedate.com to find someone, anyways if you want to find real one go to vk.com that is a social site like Facebook, try many, maybe one respond you finally, or go by person to kiev and stay there communicate with people maybe you find somebody in real life, that is also challenging and not easy, ukrainian and russian don't like color skin people be careful, if you are white you may have good chance, if not that will be more difficult ..
when i was using this site i didn't consider these reviews but finally i am one of those who write a review to help you save your emotions and accept reality !
anyways if you couldn't find someone in your place, you probably can't find somewhere else, that is true and logic, but still hope is good, do your best in a proper way ..
A new way of stealing money by AnastasiaDate!!!
Be careful while watching photos attached to the letters.
Until not so long ago one photo has been free and it was marked (free). But now, in some letters with two or more photos, they deduct 10 credits from your account for viewing the FREE PHOTO! Of course, the next attached photo, which you wouldn't normally want to pay for, is free. One could say - just a mistake, but 10 credits gone down the drain anyway.
Till I noticed that I was robbed of money I had lost 50 credits.
You aren't able to guess in which letters there is this fake "free photo". Only when you check your account you can find out the lack of credits. AnastasiaDate is a very cunning thief dealing according to the proverb: take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves.
But I am astounded that they could sink so low.
A piece of garbage scam site!!!!
Among the worst of the worst. I have met a legitimate lady at Adate. Believe it or not. Of course, I met dozens of scammers too. But this one lady was insanely beautiful in Kharkov. We met on a lunch date. Gents, the standard Adate is they take you to the most expensive restaurants. You pay double or triple for cab fare. The woman always asks for gifts and the date is totally devoid of romance. You never get any personal contact info, etc. etc. Because of course, the ladies are paid. They get money for your visit. They get money for your letters and they get money for keeping you in chat.
But I met one exception. She was so beautiful I cannot even explain. And she was even nicer than she was beautiful. Again, I met her for lunch. She just ordered tea. We had a lovely discussion. I only had to pay the translator. I knew she was the real deal.
But it was years ago and I still did not understand the dating scam industry. We thought we could continue our correspondence through Adate. But they lied and kept us apart, because they knew she was real. They wanted to keep us in their system. I was told she was not interested and she was told I was not interested. Needless to say, she left the site and she found love. A foreign doctor married her. We talk on vk all the time. She is about to have their first child.
Her profile is still on Adate. She is listed as single and available. If anyone wants me to show them contact me. I have that and tons of other fake profiles, married women, etc. on Adate.
They are liars, they are deceivers, and their time has come.
Don't Waste Your Time
This website is fraud raised to its highest art form. If you value your money and your self respect you will stay away from ALL Russian/Ukrainian marriage agencies. I am not talking just about this website. ALL of them are frauds. Do some research on You Tube and Ukrainian chat rooms and discussion boards. These agencies are just money making smoke and mirror operations. Good luck and remember, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."
Great place to meet ladies
I will be honest here when you hear other people posting negative comments about this site, it's just that they are probably paid to put a negative comment on there. It's a good site for guys that are really looking to start a friendship/relations with someone from Russia or Ukraine the few ladies I have had a talk with within the past week have never asked me for money, or anything because they have jobs of their own and support them-self.
The only bad thing about the site is that it's not monthly membership site like you would have on popular dating sites in USA like match, eharmony, etc..
With Anastasia site it's a pay as you go site if you want to chat with the ladies your given 3 mins free anything else is you pay to continue chat, to send letters, and read it's a cost involved that is part of the pay as you go plan on Anastasia, and your free to delete your account if you want to.
I have traveled to Ukraine in the past many times and I have someone from there but not to see anyone from this site just another site that I am on and you just have to use common sense and if you find the love that you want to be with you should be happy.
FRAUD... SCAM.... RUN AWAY.....
PURE FRAUD!!!! SCAM!!!!
The site Anastasia Date is a real shame ....
The girls appearing in photographs often do not correspond to reality and we men think we are talking to them and we are talking to a computer, watching her photos.
Other times, the girls when they are to be online on chats try to convince men to get hours and hours on chat rooms because they receive a commission or percentage ...
More, the girls will say they want to have a meeting live in her country but the hour or inevitable happens, the mother or the child get sick, die cat, dog also .... and other times not say anything and do not appear when a person lands in her country ...
Other times, then the second or third chat, girls begin to ask for money to pay the rent, to treat the child, want iPhone, want to perfumes or flowers through the site, etc ....
This is pure emotional prostitution ... This is true SCAM !!!
RUN AWAY OF THIS SITE to avoid losing your money and your time....
When we complained to the service to consumers service, always give reason to the Ladies,,,obviously .... and seems to still enjoy with people
They all act in concert and together to fraud men who are vulnerable in their feelings.
A shame !!!
For my part, I will denounce this disgraceful situation to the last instance.
If you want you can read this article of the British newspapper The Guardian http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2014/apr/06/ukraine-wife-internet-romance-industry-online-scam
Later I will send my evidences...
THIS SITE IS A COMPLETE FRAUD. ONLY 7.25% OF THEIR PROFILES ARE WOMEN WHO CANNOT BE PROVEN TO BE PROFESSIONAL DATERS. Their anti scam policy is a fraud in itself. Scammed customers are asked to provide unreasonable levels of proof or their complaints rejected. Those customers who have evidence are barred from the site for alleged breach of AnastasiaFRAUDs terms of service. Anastasia then issue protocols to the mafia run agencies in Ukraine so that girls cannot be found out in the same way again. They use evidence submitted to customers to cover up their fraud.
A worthy website in my opinion
I met my Olga on Anastasiadate website last January. After reading Olga’s profile I almost thought I was reading my own. We had so much in common! Won’t bore you with all the details, wonderful they might be, but now we are together it seems as if two parts of one soul finally found each other! On an international dating site!
Very positive experience
I have very positive experience with Anastasiadate, as it helped me find my Elena. I was attracted to her from the first moment. She looked so beautiful and natural in the pictures and her profile on Anastasiadate, was not of a super woman, but of a good and nice woman who I could consider as my life partner in the future. As it appeared through correspondence, I did the right choice, as her letters proved that she was sincere, honest and serious in her intentions to develop a long-lasting relationship with me. My first trip by car through all Ukraine was very long and risky but I did not change my mind to see her despite all the difficulties. Within a short period of time we have already met 4 times in her country..
Worked out for me
I would like to share with you my fortunate meeting of one of the ladies on Anastasia. I received my first letter from her last February. Men on Anastasia receive numerous emails every day and I personally did not have the time to respond to all the nice letters from the ladies. If you believe in fate then Olga and I were destined to meet. Olga is, like many of the woman on Anastasia site, very beautiful, but there is so much more to a person, and a relationship, then how attractive you may find someone. Anyway, it worked out perfectly for me!
Found my love
I joined Anastasia through the internet last year, and had received many initial letters. I was intrigued by one woman from Moldova named Ludmila and had briefly corresponded with her. Before becoming too attached, I wanted to meet her in person, so both could determine if there could be physical chemistry. Ludmila was a simple country girl, and I decided to meet her. The rest is history! Thank you Anastasia!!
Anastasia is a lie
For the time AnastasiaDate have deals that we men can talk to the girls for 3 minutes for free
ask the girls if they want to talk on facebook, or Vkontakte
Either the girls block you or the girls write they only see dots.
That's a lie
I have persuaded 10 women to talk to me on VKontake and facebook. All 10 girls say but well see when typing Facebook and Vkontakte, at anastasia date.
Anastasia is just a money machine - and nothing else
use other dating programs
or try to find the girls on VKontakte
I could not thank AnastasiaDate enough for establishing its wonderful introductory service. After finding Anastasia web site, I subscribed to their quarterly catalog service. There was one woman, in particular, who's picture and profile caught my eye. Since that time, we have been writing to each other on a regular basis. A few months later, I arrived in St.Petersburg and was met at the airport by my beautiful Anna. None of this would be possible without Anastasia.
