Anastasia Date Reviews
195 ‘Anastasia Date’ Reviews
To give you an idea of how bad AnastasiaDate is I will use an example.
AnastasiaDate has a profile for Marina (ID: 1792744). Marina is a low-level Instagram model. She had a career as a model but that career has pretty much died (apparently in part because she was unreliable owing to party issues). She is on multiple Dating.com sites (AnastasiaDate.com, yourtravelmates.com, dating.com, eurodate.com, russianbrides.com). Marina is regularly online (usually every day) for the paid chat in the morning and evening at these sites. She will also regularly write letters for her contacts to pay to open. These letters will be written so that they do not refer to any personal information of the people she communicates with so they can then be easily sent out to all of her contacts.
She also has verified listings on multiple other dating sites online.
Marina has a local boyfriend, Denis, who took her travelling to the Maldives and she was still online on AnastasiaDate and the other sites during the trip. Apparently, he has a reputation as a bit of a low-grade local thug who deals in coke and has connections to local organised crime. Word is that Marina is like many other models with a liking for partying and using her boyfriend’s connections to get drugs. There have even been suggestions that she works regularly as an escort and party girl but nothing has been confirmed. Marina is one of a group of girls who are friends and they are all involved in this activity. Marina also has a listing on Interpol from her overseas activity.
Marina has been online dating for years and has several listings on scam sites. Google her and you will see them. One of those scam reports refers to her boyfriend Igor but that is because they made a mistake as Igor is actually part of Denis’s family name.
Denis and Marina have been together for a while. So despite AnastasiaDate’s claims they check that the girls on the profiles are genuinely looking for a partner, it seems that Marina already has one, but because her relationship with Denis is not registered and they manage their social media profiles so that no images appear, they can get away with it. And those people who are paying to communicate with Marina have no idea of this. It makes no difference to AnastasiaDate as they continue to receive the money from the paying members.
In addition, AnastasiaDate states that members on their site have not authorised the use of their images on other dating sites but clearly this is just worthless as Marina has multiple other listings online which have been verified.
When contacted about this profile AnastasiaDate advised there had been no previous complaints about the profile. But I am aware that there have been at least two complaints. Interestingly AnastasiaDate advised both complainants that there had been no other complaints as well. They advised that any issues with the profile had been dealt with by their verification team. But in fact, nothing has changed. The other thing they say is that they are a social meeting site and so have no responsibility for the behaviour of their profiles. They are simply going to protect the profiles of the girls as they make money.
So a man will sign up as a member and he pays AnastasiaDate to chat/communicate with what he thinks are genuine profiles of attractive girls that have been properly checked and verified by AnastasiaDate. AnastasiaDate pay a commission to the local agency for payments received for chat/letters/gifts. The local agency then pays the girls and their “translators” who often pose as the girls online.
Apparently, the people who run AnastasiaDate (and all of the sites in that group) have full knowledge of the scams run by their partner agencies and take no action. AnastasiaDate continue to purchase profiles. Rarely, if ever, are refunds given to the men defrauded and no action is taken to remove false profiles until they are publicly exposed, even when the organisation has been advised that the profiles are fake through complaints.
This information would indicate that AnastasiaDate continue to be knowingly engaged in activity that supports fraud on a massive scale. It would also appear that they make no reasonable attempt to stop it, nor do they refund most customers who are defrauded. They claim they have a verification team but there does not appear to be any action taken by this team to prevent these profiles from misleading the paying members of the sites, so it seems unlikely they actually exist.
The only reason AnastasiaDate is interested in complaints is to:
1.remove obvious scams outside of their normal contacts
2.provide information to help develop internal protocols to stop the women being found out so easily.
AnastasiaDate issues protocols to its contracting agencies to ensure women on the site behave in a way that will prevent potential problems and to ensure they do not give away information on their social networking profiles.
It has been said that AnastasiaDate purchases profiles in the full knowledge that the profiles they buy are not genuine and the agencies they purchase them from are corrupt and fraudulent. Apparently, there is no recorded instance of AnastasiaDate terminating the contract of a provider agency. Many of the agencies are small businesses that will then sell profiles they have collected to the bigger players in the market.
It also appears that many of the agencies in Ukraine have links to organised crime. Some of the funds that come from this activity go to Russian mafia organisations, some go to Ukraine and Donetsk mafia figures (one of the owners of AnastasiaDate is a well known Ukraine crime figure), and some go to funding the separatists in east Ukraine. So these agencies are in effect traitors to their own country.
On this basis, it is very hard to see how AnastasiaDate can claim it provides a genuine environment for men to find a partner. By using AnastasiaDate for entertainment (as it clearly is very unlikely to help you find a wife) you are continuing to promote this activity.
AnastasiaDate appears to receive an unrealistic number of positive reviews from ‘customers’ on review sites, but there are many more genuine-sounding negative reviews. They tried taking some review sites to court claiming they were using fabricated, negative testimonials but the cases were thrown out. I guess it is pretty clear why.
If you have been in contact with this site and identified that the profile was not genuine in any way then contact your credit card company and request your money back. Do not be fooled into thinking that somehow it is your fault. It is deceptive and misleading behaviour and you are the victim.
There may be women on the site who are genuinely looking for a partner but you will find it very difficult to be able to confirm that. Even when you take the contact offline after exchanging personal information it is easy for the girl to claim that there was no chemistry.
I am aware of one situation where the man travelled to Ukraine from the US and met with the girl from AnastasiaDate to be told that they could only be friends. Given that the girl already had a long-term younger local boyfriend and continued to be online on multiple dating sites, it obviously was not a genuine contact. Apparently, she made jokes about how she could rely on the payments from him regularly sending her gifts.
This site has many tricks to extract money from members and their support is simply there to protect the business and not the paying members. There is plenty of information online to confirm how this company operates. This is a business that pretends to be there to help members find a partner. But it has a very thin cover of professionalism that hides a machine designed to exploit its paying members (that is you) at every opportunity.
Here is an excellent example of a scammer on Anastasiadate. Her name is Inna and her ID is 1923172.
She seems sweet and will tell you that she loves you. She will also say that she wants you to visit and wants to be with you. All this to get you to spend more. Notice that her videos are recorded. Check the clock behind her.
I was supposed to meet Inna on May 1, but her son was in the hospital. I was supposed to meet her again and went to Kiev but she said that she had to work!!!! She could not even meet after work, even though she loved me and wanted to be with me.
Inna is Inna Rybchenko. A simple VK search will find her but she is also on Instagram here:
Yes, she keeps her site public. Her boyfriend/husband is Alexander Sterilkov who has pictures of her son on his Instagram site as well. Both are public sites.
On May 1, Inna's Instagram shows that she was in the Carpathian Mountains. On August 1, she was with Alexander and her son in Turkey.
Inna is a fraud, and I reported her to Anastasiadate who did nothing about it. She is still there. But you see her own photos on her own site. You are paying her to be on vacation always. Nice life but you will never be a part of it.
I met one girl on this site and on the first visit gave her a computer, not an expensive one as she claimed it did not work so we could communicate off site. Well that never happened as she claimed the computer and cam did not work, etc. Still was stupid enough to come back and visit her but last year found her on the social media sites with her boyfriend on various vacation locations within Ukraine. The reviews above are right on target. She made the mistake of when I asked her salary as a "designer", she said $400 in a good month. Now these people are paid monthly and do not get paid if they do not work and they work for a set salary and $400 is at the high end even now in 2018. She is on the site every night from 8 pm to 1 am earning her extra salary. Oh and if she lists her English ability as Intermediate, that means nothing and they will try and hit your for an Interpreter. Stay clear of the site nothing but a scam.
And speaking to "normal" Ukrainian women,, they despise these women as it gives them a bad name.
They mislead you on credits! It's like a highway robbery but online instead! They charge so much and mislead people!
YOU'VE BEEN WARNED! NEVER PAY FOR DATING AGAIN! I'D ADVISE OTHERS TO DO THE SAME!
THE MORE LETTERS YOU SEE, THE MORE YOU SEND, THE MORE CHATS... YOU'LL SEE THE ASTRONOMICAL PRICES THEY TAKE FROM YOUR CREDIT CARD!
YOU'D HAVE TO BE OUT OF YOUR MIND TO USE THIS SITE! I honestly don't know how others afford it unless you are Jeff Bezos! Stay away!!
Still searching for my beloved, unexpectedly having vanished, Irochka85 / Irochka #2532 from Donetsk - Makiivka, on dating websites also by her appearance, in spring 2016 I ran at AnastasiaDate.com into Viktoria #1841475. Viktoria caught my attention by her elegant look, so I decided to save her profile into my computer as a pleasant remembrance and maybe to address her some time. Now in spring 2017, again searching also there for Irochka, I noticed that Viktoria has changed some basic information in her profile: sooner: 178 cm, 49 kg, beginner, now: 175 cm, 56 kg, intermediate.
I suppose that she or the staff of AnastasiaDate agency decided for the change in order to increase their profits from paying male members by moderating her statue info to more common value/-s (at least her height) so that a greater number of men will suit her and therefore address her, chargely of course.
This way also a lady at UaDreams.com, Anna #2677, has moderated her basic profile info: from low statue to higher (despite women stop growing at 18 years), still (now even for 6 years) being a bachelor student - the longer time a student, the longer time unaccessible for foreign men to get her for physical partnership and so the longer time getting money from foreign men (via dating agency) for dating with her - and with moderated info about the colour of her hair: from uncommon black to common brown.
So, no wonder that dating agences charging only us men, falsively moderating profiles, having ladies at the agencies as long as possible with exactly the same profiles at several dating sites and so the sites are joined, influencing total trust evaluation at ScamAdvisor.com to higher value by raising popularity as one of judging parameters by falsive writing positive reviews at review websites, e. g. at SiteJabber.com, TrustPilot.com (I remember from a time not as long ago of a very low AnastasiaDate's total trust value at ScamAdvisor, while now suddenly the total trust value has jumped to 100%, and you can notice a few rows of typically falsive positive reviews especially at SiteJabber last time: short texts praising the agency by only general bla bla from persons having only 1 review), ... (did I forget, regarding AnastasiaDate.com, about anything?), are not in trust among us men.
