Read this about AnastasiaDate.com - Let's file a class-action lawsuit!!!
March 28, 2013
AnastasiaDate.com - You post the same vague and non-specific reponses constantly; however, you NEVER change your policies of allowing such things as exchanging contact information; charging one unlimited membership fee (such as at Elena's Models, whereas you charge ridiculously-high fees for very short responses from women on the site, not to mention your rape-me-now fees for chat); not giving expert advice to those who need a full-service individualized plan to travel to meet the woman of their choice (your socials are not what most real men want); not offering discounts for long-term (6+ months) members for flower delivery (your minimu flower purchase is in "credits", not cash, and those credits convert into almost $300 (US) for a dozen roses. You don't even give reimbursements for women who write-back with exremely short or canned responses. You refer to 10,000 women you have as members in most of your social media posts, but there are many other posts - from you - that reflect that you have 20,000 female members. Also, since your payment network is located in Cyprus (red flag), my credit company issues a fraud alert EVERY TIME I purchase more credits. You are based in Maine (where I suppose a lot of women from the Ukraine dream about (not!)), but your credit card processing provider is in Cyprus? You could have such an incredible company if you actually implemented doing the right thing... you say a married couple founded AnastasiaDate.com more than 19 years ago, so why have you made it your mission not to offer a far better - and reputable - service? You have not gained the trust of anyone on this review site, so doesn't that make you nervous that the wrong person - such as me - is going to walk into you office with a team of criminal lawyers and serve you with a big stack of lawsuits because of even these most basic issues noted above? You have not made a good impression on any of us, and it will be a real shame when the lawyers get to dismantle you. By the way, don't respond to this post with one of your "we are reputable" or "contact our customer service to address your concerns" posts... too many of us have now lost our respect for your reputation (you have none) and have not been helped AT ALL by contacting your useless "customer service".

Tom I would like to find a way to get in contact with you.

Bill M April 02, 2013

Sparky and Tom,

If you can't afford their website...go to another one you cheap skates!!! You think you are the first person to get scammed by a website on the internet? A website can scam you! A gold digger can! You think there aren't gold diggers on free websites? Have you never bothered to look at their website and seen the addresses listed all over the world?

I worked in collections for many years when I was younger. If you are going to threaten lawsuits you better back it up buddy...otherwise it is you that is harassing people. So file your lawsuit, call their customer service department, or shut your mouth.

It is a real shame all you smack talkers on this site like to blog about what is clearly you getting rejected by some hottie abroad. It is ok mate...I am sure there is a chupacabra running around that will love ya.

Later!

Sparky April 10, 2013

To Bill Mack,

Again I would ask you to keep your personal attacks on me and also on Tom out of this discussion. I do not know you and as such you have no first hand knowledge of my personal conduct. Therefore you have no right to call me a "cheap skate", a "smack talker" or someone that was 'clearly rejected by some hottie abroad'. I respect your right to your personal opinion in regards to the way that ANASTASIA WEB conducts their business but you have no right to make personal attacks against me just because you disagree with me. And in regards to filing a lawsuit against ANASTASIA , that is my purpose in trying to contact Tom. I already have a lawyer in mind in Lewiston Maine and a law firm in Portland Maine. If enough of us men band together with our experiences and sue ANASTASIA WEB we could put an end to their fraudulent practices. So please don't tell me to "file your lawsuit...or shut your mouth" because I do have the finances to pay for such a lawsuit.

Enjoy while it lasts

Hi,

I am living in USA but was born in Russia. Since I left my motherland it was a difficulty for me to find a woman. In USSR the ladies are lady like,but americans... they are so urlgy, so cruel, so feministic.

A-date for me was a chance to fell myself to a man. I understand completely that there may be scammers among 30 000 of girls on site. As well as you may be scammed on every site including Match.com.But there are a plenty of honest, beautiful and carring women on Anastasia. Maybe one day I shall find the one for me. Now I just get pleasure communicating online.

And I wish you to do the same.

Bill M April 02, 2013

Joseph, is Moscow far from Odessa Ukraine? I will be going to the social in Odessa in a few weeks that is hosted by AnastasiaDate. Would you recommend it to also visit Kherson which is supposed to be nearby?

Martin April 09, 2013

Sure! but how much do you pay for a membership for Match.com? Furthermore bozo, in Match.com you can exchange any information such as emails, phone numbers and so on.

The whole country (Ukraine) is making money out the scam. Thousands of dimwit Americans travel to Ukraine to meet up with so called ladies!

Now go back and kiss up to your boss who sent you here to write this comment.

I was on both of these sites for almost a year. I have to say, I spent a good amount of money, on both. Just like anything in this world, you have to be smart, when spending your money. Just, like the saying; "If it is to good to be true".

There is a a bit of truth, to everyone's review of any dating website. You are taking a chance, especially with any long distance relationship. If you want anymore proof, watch the movie "Catfish".

I was lucky to find my wife on another website. My wife speaks (she is Ukranian/Russian) several languages, and has traveled. We talked a lot about dating websites. Through our conversations, I came up with this conclusion. Everything we do in this world, has percentage of risk. Determine what risks you are willing take, and which ones you are not. When I am gambling;I do not bet money, I can not afford to lose.

Vern March 26, 2013

James - What website was that? (That you found your wife)

James March 27, 2013

I wanted to also, let you know. I met my wife on ukrainedating.com. Which, is less expensive then many dating sites. You might want to try this one out, so you can get a feel for these type of dating sites.

My wife has been contacted by other websites to use her profile, on their websites. Even, after she told them she has met someone.

Just be cautious....

Suckers
March 16, 2013
I have to agree with you, I was on A-Date for about a year it didn't cost me a lot of money because I figured out that a lot of the "girls" get payed to chat. I chatted with a few & it was cool, but if you start watching who is on-line all the time you figure it out pretty fast......I mean how many doctor's have the time to chat 10-15 hour's a day? And remember (I'm in the US on the west coast) the time difference it's 10 hour's ahead in Odessa & all these women, doctor's, lawyer's, ect....are up all night chatting everyday????

AnastasiaDate C March 23, 2013

Hello,

At AnastasiaDate we strive to provide the best customer support and experience possible. We understand you concern regarding occupations. The field in the ladies profiles you are referring to "Occupation" is often populated with the field of study while some ladies are still completing their college or university education. You will notice in this case, the ladies profile will reflect "Student" in the field of education.

Hope this helps to clarify. If you have any comments or questions regarding our service, please feel free to contact us anytime at: (800) 356-3130 or through our website where you can also reach a LiveChat operator.

Thank you

Of course you take them seriously! If any scams with unquestionable evidence were not covered up by you, EVERY communication with a pro chatter on your site would be a case of wire FRAUD. I would so love for you to be charged with over 5 million counts of wire fraud. Lets make it happen guys!

This is an ORGANIZED CRIME
March 2, 2013
The women you see are not the ones you chat with...YOU are chatting with an experienced older lady who knows how to fool you (I was fooled too but not for long)..RUSSIAN MAFIA is behind all Russian and Ukrainian dating sites..This is a huge business for them they are making tons of money by deceiving you, while exploiting women of eastern Europe, taking their pics and using their profiles as a way of adding legitimacy to these dating sites....... STOP THIS CYBER CRIME....SPREAD THE WORD......

Not R March 04, 2013

It is traitors who left Russia and the former USSR and now living in America that run this site... Not good Soviet People. The people behind the management of these sites, are unable to even enter many of the ex-republics because they are criminals, and will be arrested if they return to Russia. They hide in England, France, America and run these scams. Don't blame the good honest decent people of the Soviet Republics. Yes these sites are false... But it is not honest citizens who benefit. It is criminals, who betrayed their own blood and live in the west, that profit from these sites.

It takes effort!
February 25, 2013

I've been to Ukraine 4 times in the last 3 years to meet women from dating sites. Ukrainedate.com was my choice of site and I met 1 woman from Anastasiadate.com. I've met probably a total of 12 women, and of them only 1 was a scammer/gold digger. Ukrainian police was more of the trouble then the women I met on the computer. But 20 bucks, they leave you alone.

I want to say building a relationship with any woman online from Russia and Ukraine, it takes effort, homework, and intuition, and money (not money to buy gifts, but travel expenses and lodging).

My experience on Anastasiadate.com is that 80% of the women are false. They are paid workers for the company and have no intentions of falling in love with you. It's their job to keep you paying for communication.

Now once you filter out all of the false profiles. I tel lyou how you can do that. 1. Some women have Webcam (costly) but seeing them is a sure way you know you are talking to a real woman. and 2. VK.COM is an excellent tool to search the women by Name, birthday, and city. then you can match their photos..and some you'll be able to see them in their natural appearance.

Once you found a legit woman, then the rest is on you. I had a great time meeting the woman I've been communicating with from Anastasiadate.com for about 4 months and we had so much fun together. Despite marriage didn't work out, we are good friends.

There is no Ukrainian woman or Russian for that matter that's going to bow down and worship you just because you're from the west, not even if you have millions. CHANCES are, if you're having a tough time getting dates with American women, then you'll have the same problem in Russia and Ukraine. If you need money to buy pleasure, ell then it is only what you going to get. Not Love! If you honestly think some 20 year old girl with a pretty face wants a 40 year old bald man with a beer belly, then you are fooling yourself. If your intent is to have sex, then save thousands of $ and join Adultfriendfinder.com, or go to backpage.com and search for escorts!

An honest woman from Ukraine and Russia will tell you, she is not interested in you, and if she is...she will want to know you, ask and answer questions without games. Again, filtering out takes time and homework!....effort!

i am A Lone Wolf

Bitten by Love

And bleeding for The Woman That Runs Free

With The Wolves.

She is not caged, nor contained.

A gentle and as vicious in a fight, to peace of Making Love, again and again.

Like the one woman gentle in Asia, and the one woman, here.

I enslave no woman, and no woman enslaves I.

We walk, together, side by side, if one ought fall, the other helps.

If there is family, I protect, instantly with my Life, as she her Cubs.

We are Nobody's Fool's. We are Liberated, not Oppressors

And we set each-other, more free, through Unconditional Love

Which liberates us to Infinity, and then, by Nature, we give and share

On and on and on, with other's, especially children in need

For they are the future of this world, we only point the Way

But they must walk it, alone, as we have done, until

Love finds them, as they search for Love

Which waits for them to Listen

With an Open-Heart, and Not just an open-mind...

Jeff March 02, 2013

I have been on Anastasia for a few months now. Sure it cost a lot but, I can't tell who is for real or who is not. Although the woman I have connected with the best and communicated the most with is real and on VK. Just because they are not on VK doesn't mean they are not for real.

A good site for serious men may be Elena's Models. The cost is much less and Elena has the best international dating advice around. I don't know about 80% of the women on Anastasia are false. I would think that it is much less and that most are real looking for sincere love. Either way use your best judgement when doing anything on the internet.

Steve is right that it takes much effort researching what you need to know but, I believe it to be worth it.

Vern March 26, 2013

Maybe AnastasiaDate should have a different business model if they truely want to be thught of as legit. For example... dating sites in the US charge a monthly fee for beinf able to communicate. eHarmony.com charges about $30/month, The following sites charge about the same: ChristianMingle.com & Match.com, also DeafSingles.com charges $15 per month. You can chat and send letters all you want if you have paid your monthly membership. OnAnastasiaDate.com, you can not even send the lady ANY contact information. They block it out and so it never gets there. I have had a lady want to send me her email and get mine. We could not do it because it was scrambled in transmission. Hmmmmm....

Yes, you are right when you say that in America it is very difficult to find a good and attractive woman. The real good ones get chosen very quickly. I have been to the Ukraine many times and I see the contrast and the differences between their girls and ours. Not much to compare! Our women here in the USA are the complete opposite of theirs - fat, sloppy, lazy and classless. I have given up all hope of meeting a good America woman here. I gave up years ago!

I feel sorry for the young American men that have to deal with all of their nonsense. American guys if you are in search for a woman for a wife go to Europe. Your chances will increase 10 fold! but PLEASE avoid the bigger well known Romance Tour Companies like AFA and Anastasia - they are a total waste of time and your money. Keep your money in your wallet! Good Luck!

Scam? Yes and No
February 11, 2013
I can tell you that I am an American and I hang out with other Americans and foreigners who also here, and we have compared note and as best we can tell about 95% are in it for the Money..Oh yes? The Money!!. 5% are in it to find a foreign man. Out of the 95% about 10 to 15% would get married to a foreigner if he came here and performed well. Out of the 95% we estimate that 85% have current Boyfriends/Lovers/Sponsors while they get you to spend money online. Let me tell you them being online,,, Its a JOB!! How much money? For you and I it seems silly but before I tell you let me clue you in. A good paying job is between 250 to 400 USD per month and a Apartment can go from 150 to 250 USD. A USA style apartment can go for 300 USD furnished. Everything and Everyone can be bought for peanuts. You can be a 40/50 year old American/Foreigner or Russian/ Ukrainian whatever and if you can afford 300 USD a month for an apartment and spending money you can have yourself a 22 year old Chicky to play with in your free time. If they are popular a girl/woman can make 6 USD to maybe 10USD per day. My advice STOP. Come here and enjoy ... stop dreaming get and get into the mix ...And that is why I love it!!

RusRich February 12, 2013

It is because of people like you! That I don’t associate with Westerners. You treat the girls and people like slaves and prostitutes… It is why I Live amongst the real people… you are absolute filth. Simply using and preying on people. Taking advantage of a great place… I have been in the republics for nearly 2 decades now. And every year that passes, I get more and more appalled by you westerners. You are an embarrassment to Mankind! Treating people as slaves… Simply using them to play games, and treat people as sex slaves. There are good honest kind people here! And you use the underside of civilization. If you are paying for drinks in the clubs, and cafes to fraternize with girls for sex, it is no different than going and hiring a prostitute. You are truly filthy scum!!! But I guess this shouldn’t surprise me… Americans have always been pigs and tried to enslave the world.

Oksana February 12, 2013

rusrich just shut up. please....stop talking.... its Russian girls make them look like a prostitutes, not American...

RusRich February 12, 2013

Both are bad Oksana... But those who prey on the weakness of others are the worst evil!!!. And American men who come here looking to treat girls like crap, perpetuate the evil… They don’t look to do good or help… They simply want sex slave…. Go sit in club and be drunk… Try buy girl… Yes… You are correct… Girl and man are both wrong…. But man perpetuates the wrong… And that is how Americans think they do so good for all world and then come on sex tour holidays… I don’t fault these girls.. If silly American is willing to give money… But what I hate is how American preaches, how good their life… How they have democracy and freedom… The last time we saw real freedom was Brezhnev. And before that was Stalin… It is only because of those traitors Gorbachev and Yeltsin that our female population gets used.

Hal February 13, 2013

I've spent much time in Moscow and have know many Russian Women. They all sat the same thing, that Russian men treat them like dogs. The ones I have found prefer Westerners.

Hal February 13, 2013

Even if we can't spell.

Bellatrice February 13, 2013

Escort service? The girl in the ad looks 14.

Sad:(

Robert February 17, 2013

Robert:

You all make some good points. I was married for 14 years to a beautiful Russian woman I met on a Russian dating site. There was no doubt that her main motivation was to get out of Russian and give her children an opportunity at a better life. She and I are basically decent people and both gave the marriage an honest try, but eventually her Russian culture caught up with her and she engaged in financial infidelity, serial lying and emotional cheating if not actual cheating. Both Russian men and woman actually believe that thereis nothing wrong with engaging in unethical or immoral behavior as long as they don't get caught at it and it remains a secret. Of course, I suppose Westerners are just as bad. On the positive side, all the women I met were decent and respectable. They were older professional women. All I can say is do your homework, do back ground investigations, and never give them large suns of money unless you are married and then still be certain of them. Prenuptial agreements are an absolute necessity.

Jerry February 21, 2013

I belonged to Anastasia for about a month until it became obvious that you would have better luck in a snake pit than with these women who, in most cases do not even exist. You think you are talking to a real woman but the fact is, you are talking to a bunch of professionally p[roduced photographs. If you watch their emails closely you will see that you are not even talking to the woman at all. You are talking to an Anastasia employee who may even be a man! They are not allowed to give you their own email addresses or phone numbers. You pay to read and you pay to write.

You pay to do anything, and they have a lot of anythings to do.....If you belong, get out.

Marc March 03, 2013

Yesterday I saw an advertisement for the site. I looked at the cute, or

sometimes too cute/lovely girls that are young enough to be my daughter.

All I entered was my email and first name. I never went further than that

because they were not up-front about the costs.

I got off of it after that.

Then, today I received an email inviting me back; I did. This time they

actually did show a couple of beautiful women who were listed as

around my age. I found out about the costs and sensed the phoniness

and got off. I was just curious, and if it smells of bs, you feel the bs

it's probably bs!

Most you westerners deserve what you get!
February 4, 2013
I know this site, and also other affiliated sites… And I also am familiar friends with people involved in these sites… Bottom Line. I was born and raised under the false media beliefs that Western NATO lead countries created. And although the majority of the girls on these sites are not sincere… Most you Western Men deserve exactly what you get. You should see the awful behavior of Westerners when they are in the Ex-Republics. These girls do not dream so much to leave their homeland… And follow some western man… Now if you western men, come here and find a girl… Most likely she will use you, if you come here with your pompous American beliefs…. So I have absolutely no sympathy for you pigs that come here looking for girls via the internet. You western pigs absolutely deserve what you get… The western world is not the all mighty be all and end all!!!! And especially in Russia, any decent girl does not dream to leave their native land. Ukraine, times are a little tougher then in Russia… But still in Ukraine, it is not going to be your best loyal and class of girl looking to run away with some western man… And if you come here not knowing even basic Russian Language and communications… Then you shouldn’t even be coming here. Why should a girl need learn English for you!!! You want come here to meet a girl… You first better learn some basic language skills… And also forget all that BS that you learnt in American and Western Schools about the USSR… So yes 99% of you pigs deserve what you get… The behavior of Western, American, Canadian, Egyptian, European and Turkish men here is absolutely DEPLORABLE!!!! I hope all of you get taken and used… Because you absolutely deserve, when I see how you behave here towards girls and their homeland!!!

RusRich February 04, 2013

Let me emphasis it further… If you come to the ex-republics, because you think your money is so great, and your life is so great in the west… Then you are coming for the wrong reason. You are looking for simply a slave or Prostitute… And you will get used and taken, as you truly deserve to!!!

Because life in the west is not so much better then here… People love their culture and heritage.

Now if you are here, because you respect the culture, heritage, people and beliefs of the great USSR… Then you are here for the correct reasons… Learn the Language… Don’t follow the Criminals that want become westernized and part of the EU. (Which is generally the wealthy crooks trying to hide stolen money) Ok… Now you have a chance…. But remain here… Maybe you work as an ex-pat where you can remain in the USSR for at least 6 months of the year! Don’t make some girl leave her home, culture and heritage… Be a man… And leave her be happy here, where she has family, friends, and history!!! Because Honestly, life is much more friendly here than in the west!!! I was born and raised under American Brain washing… And it took me 5 years of living here to truly appreciate how much more friendly and better life can actually be here, as compared to the West…. Forget about Dollars and Material Possessions… Forget about that falsified word “Democracy” that is just an excuse for NATO and the US to corrupt countries… Come here, live and enjoy… Then you will truly find a real girl, who loves and respects you mutually!!!

American P February 05, 2013

"You western pigs..." <----You are adorable! I would totally pay to have you say "Get Moose and Squirrel!", You sound so authentically Cold War! :D

Jambon T February 05, 2013

RusRich-

You're so right about Canadians, with their maple leafs and their Tim Hortons! Who do they think they are, playing hockey and emailing girls who "do not dream so much to leave their homeland"? I wish more Canadian men could be like you. And I'm Turkish! But I'm an Eastern Turk, not one of those crappy Western Turks that you hate. What's up with Western Turks, anyway? We hate them, don't we? Hey do you wear a track suit and gold chain like all the Russian guys in the movies? I hope you do. I want to tell the Chinese guys at work that I know a track suit Russian. Thank you for your help and your love. I love you too. Do you swing? Call me, eh?

Aussie J February 05, 2013

Hahaha Im Australian mate not Western and that commercial and website are displayed every where. How do you feel about Japanese fellow or Chinese or Arabic fellow coming to your frigid country and taking ur girls eh? I understand national pride but your sounding like a Stalin sympathizer, a Bond villain. Haha lighten mate. ;)

Bry February 06, 2013

Well I'm English so i am western and eastern Europeans treat your women like dogs and that's why must of them want to get out. Half of them are working at Starbucks up the road from me. I work with 2 Czech Republican women who speak little English so before you tell us to learn your language have a look at yourselves. There very pleasant and polite tho. I can't speak for the Americans but we British when we go on holiday we go for a good time we get pissed and making arses of ourselves and maybe you eastern European men should remove the sticks from arses stop shaving your heads and beating up foreigners and try having a good time as well. Maybe your women will stay.

Lucky February 06, 2013

such hatred can and should be left in russia

Beyazit February 07, 2013

Speaking so generally is not right but its not about nations but about ethics... people are applaused when they do ****, people are applaused when they use others, people are applaused when they hurt someone, people are applaused when do something which is actually easy to do ... breaking is easy but making is hard ... everybody is so selfish and thats leads to corruption ... everybody should go back to their innonence while they were still a child ... and what they have become today ... we transform from angels to demons almost. because we dont help each other but f*ck each other... and the more the heart gets tired the more it dies. and after a while you start to break things if you are not able to hold yourself ...

i agree with the misusage but its not about nations. there is a fact that americans are somehow more spoiled than many nations but doesnt prove that others are not. the most funny comment was about eastern and western turks. i have heard it the first time ever :)

I agree! (I'm an American) I saw the ad on TV and wondered (I Googled) - are they really peddaling young flesh on primetime television? Yes, it appears so!

Between this and scammy religious infomercials, I wonder how low can the public advertising standards get? What next? Ads for dildos and "marital aids"? The once honorable American culture is rapidly dissolving!

Certainly, horny old men deserve what they get!

RusRich speaking of languages and communication, your English and grammar sucks horribly. You should think of a Rosetta Stone purchase in the near future.

Alan February 19, 2013

I'm from the West (dual South African & Australia citizen) and once visited Kiev on business. There was a "social" at the hotel where I was staying, and out of curiosity I wandered in. Most of the men were older and from either the US or Canada. Most behaved politely, but the difference in age between the men and the Ukrainian girls who were present was striking - in some cases as much as 25 years.

I believe that this is the greatest contributor to the disaster that often follows, but the difference in culture should not be ignored either. My grandparents were from the ex Soviet Union and I was consequently exposed to Russian culture. What most American men don't understand is that it is significantly different from what they know.

To view it from the perspective of the girls, of course they're doing it to improve their lives and that of their children. Who can possibly blame them, and to even suggest that they're "in it for the money" is an insult to anyone's intelligence. Life is hard in Ukraine, and if a girl is able to meet someone for whom she has at least some fondness, naturally she's going to be attracted by the possibilities. So would anybody in similar circumstances.

I don't like to generalize but Russian girls do have many positive qualities. And finally, there's a golden rule which cuts across all of humanity, irrespective of cultural divides, and that is that if you treat a girl well, the chances are she'll treat you the same way. But being nice is a full time job - you've got to work at it every day.

Jerry February 21, 2013

All I can say is that the women on these sites are cold, calculating *****es who care nothing about you. You are just talkinhg to aq bunch of professional photographs sold to the dating site. You are really talking to an Anastasia employee who may even be a man! One in a thouisand men who visit the Ukraine actuall ends up married. And that's where your real problems begin! It cost you thousands of dollars just to sponsor a "bride." and once they get their citizenship here, they leave you for a younger man, or take all your life savings with them. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is....don't be taken in by these blood-sucking vampires.

Bla,bla,bla!how much are you paid each month to write such BS (with the money stolen from your naive western money providers! )

WTF SCAM
January 24, 2013

I created my profile and listed my occupation, in my profile I wrote :

YOU MUST MENTION MY OCCUPATION IN YOUR EMAIL TO ME OR I WILL NOT REPLY.

I have had over 250 emails from some very very beautiful women introducing themselves to me........and ..................................................................

.......NOT ONE HAS MADE MENTION OF MY OCCUPATION !

Try it for yourself.

these are scam emails that are generated to take your money, I have not paid anything and will not pay anything.

Franc,

You are 100% correct!!!!! I have almost 2000 letters from women on my profile right now. In my profile I mentioned that when a woman writes to me she MUST include the codeword that I have written in my profile. NOT EVEN ONE mentioned my codeword. It is a good thing thing that the letters are free now. And ANASTASIA customer service please don't reply to my comment. These letters are sent out by computer-bot and I can prove it.

Anastasia D August 04, 2013

When are you idiots going to figure out this is one huge rip-off. Do we have to advertise more . . . see all of our links out there? We are making an insane amount of money and making you the fool because of it! All the way to the bank baby!!

it's real women!!!
January 21, 2013

English is not my mother language but I'll try to review my own experience on this site. Few days after my subscription, I met a woman very beautiful, and I started to trade letters and chat with her on the site. After 3 months of correspondence, I decided to make a trip to Ukraine (she lived in Nikolaev) to meet her.

When I arrived at the airport, the agency helped me, to bring me to my hotel and translate anything usefull (like the lines of bus, or the name of important street in the city). Tomorrow morning, I finally met the girl with who I corresponded since 3 months, and it was really her. Since the beginning I thought was she's real because, on the chat she wrote a good level of french language and when she not know a word, she wrote in English.

I stayed 3 weeks during my first trip, and we fall in love during the trip. During one year and half, we lived a distance love, and in February of 2007, she came in France for live together. Now, we are always together, but not married (she don't want), and I think really it's the woman of my life. I'm thirty years old, her also, and we have a beautiful love relationship.

Surely there are scammers on this site , but there are also real ladies, who search for love and serious relation with foreign man. The most inconvenient about Anastasia date, is that the agency check all, and it's inevitable to pass by them, for call, send flowers, or meet the girls, but finally I don't regret it.

I'm sorry for my english, but I tried to do my best.

J L January 22, 2013

OK, like any form of dating, the bar to international dating and yes even match there good ones and bad ones, trust I met them on Lave life to my local pub. just as the website said take your time and use common sense.

Thats my 2 cents

Nikolaev January 25, 2013

It is interesting... For a website such as Anastasia that want work with people to arrange a real life long relationship, why they have so many rules against communication... If it is real love... You can always find a way to communicate on phone without the agency. And if Anastasia truly wanted people to have real relationships, they would not put so many restrictions on the girls, about belonging to other publice forums and sites... Anastasia traps the girls into only being there. It is truly a cash cow... Less then 1% of the women on Anastasia are genuine with their emotions. And even when they find real love the site spies on the girls, and tells them that if they place photos on public sites such as VK, FB etc... with a man, that they will be fined $500. Anastasia makes it nearly impossible for a girl to easily leave the site. And even after the girl leaves, if her photos are very beautiful, they pay a girl to chat, using those photos. Actually it isn't Anastasia that pays them. It is the local recruiting agencies contracted by Anastasia that pays the girls. Anastasia is very smart in this case. They keep everything at arms lenght, so that no Civil Law Suits can be brought against them. Yes, there is a 1% chance of meeting a genuine girl there. Also it is not only the girls that are bad... Many of the men on this site are scum bags... You should see their behaviour when they visit. I live here... And I often witness how many of these men act... So both girls and men on this site can be bad. Agreed. There is also the chance that you will be the 1% that get lucky... But the odds are better in the casino. Or getting struk by lightening.

Edouard January 26, 2013

It's true there are many scammers, but from the first letter you can notice if it's a scammer or not. If a girl write you and don't speak about your profile, I think it's not good, you can leave and pass at the next.

Maybe also, I'm chance to be french and there are not many girls who speak french language on this site (I met only one), and I was sure not used a translator. The french langauge has very specific grammar , and with a translator(like google) don't make sense. The time that I stayed, in this site I met only 2 girls, and was 2 real girls who wanted to meet a real love. After I made of choice between the two , but in any case when you enter at this type of dating site, you must choose the right profile, and reflect before answer.With the call service, you can ask at your lady his phone number, and she can to give you, there are no restrictions. In the same case, if you send her flowers, you can write in your card your private e-mail it's authorized also. There are possibilities to get round the site. With regard to erase the profile, it's true I had problems, and the site made many time before erase the profile of my girlfriend and mine.

Bruno February 02, 2013

Actually it's possible to meet with them without arranging the meeting directly through the agency (except for the mails involved, of course). I've met three from the site this way, only once was an interpreter also present because the girl I met spoke no English at all - the other two both speaks decent English (and, I've started learning Russian myself).

Except for the emails involved, we simply agreed on a location and time to meet, and this went well.

I've had my doubts about the site as well - most of the chat requests are definitely generated by the server, I happened to see a "{name}" variable entry instead of my name today - I know how those things works since I program dynamic web sites myself... having said that, I do believe that at least one of the girls I've met (the one I'm focusing on now), has genuine motives. We're planning on a holiday together this summer; I'll pick her up and we'll continue south together. c",)

I have been in the ex-cccp since 1995. Off and on. For free, you can join loveplanet.ru. There is no airbrushing there. Yes not all the girls are genuine.. But on Anastasia, I'll assure you that many of the girls are paid to chat online. I personally know some girls that get paid to chat online. And if you do chose to chat with any of these girls. I strongly suggest you search for them in Odnoklasniki or VKontakte, and look their profiles there. You will discover that many of them are not genuine. These girls want nice professional photos. This site is a way for them to get photos for free. Also they can earn $100 to $300 a month casually chatting on the computer while home doing nothing in the evening.

Be cautious on loveplanet.ru also. Many of the girls there do it simply for entertainment, or are prostitutes... But it is free, and your chances of meeting a true genuine girl on loveplanet.ru are 100 times greater then on Anastasia.

RRR January 15, 2013

Further to the Above. I you want to see the prizes available for Girls on Anastasia.com. Look at Svadba.com. This is where girls register. And there is big incentives for them to chat, and make beautiful photos! Even Cars, and Holidays.

Yaono January 18, 2013

I've used many dating sites and in most of the situation it was not at all what i expected.Was a disaster.Recently a friend of mine from army told me about this serious agency ,where all the profiles in this site are real and gals look stunning!U can see the pics are real. I am talking to a lady for a week now,u dont have to pay for messages....lolHe is going there to meet a lady and if they give me free from work i will go with him too for valentine.Try it yourself.

Hello recently I subscribed to Anastasia and heavenly hearts and I'm putting a lot of care and you suspect it's going to be a fraud I just spent $ 100 at the two sites but I did just try and test the girl casually locate this the same girl in the two sites and is curious that I have written for both sites if requesting new pictures that different from the profile and absolute silence so far ... I will not fall into that trap but I wanted to say stupid disappoint myself if I do not write me and send different photos and sure enough it is an absolute fraud and how are things going to be like a fraud

Liars and manipulators! Shame on you! Your anti-scam policy is just a lure,a commercial argument! Your verification team is a big joke as you cannot be the criminal and the judge at same time!

Anastasiadate scam
January 12, 2013

I have been on these sites for over 10 years. I did find a young woman and married her from another site. She could never adjust to this culture and had many problems. When she first arrived she was an amazing partner. It was down hill after that and divorce. We met on a site that was honest.

Anastasiadate is a scam. Period.First, they are the most expensive. Second their pictures are far better looking than the women. Third they promote chat which grows to be a big expense. I told one of the girls I did not like chat. That I would call. She was not responsive except to chat. Today the proof was irrefutable. I have been writing to a girl on the site. Anastasiadate has several sites with the same women. One site is Russian Brides. I wrote a first letter to the girl I had been writing to on the Anastasiadate site to the Russian Brides site. Here is the answer,

Thank you for your letter. I appreciate that because I think it is very sincere. I am so glad that we have a connection. I know that we are on the right way. I think it takes time to fall in love and do things together as well as you do. I don't think it's a good idea to go somewhere to the foreign country before our meeting.

Hope to see you.

Sincerely yours, Kristina.

January 12 2013

This is obviously a form letter and she never saw it. I wrote to another woman that said she had a friend whose mother has cancer. I work in the field in advanced methods curing cancer in a week. The next letter I asked what she had done with the information. No response on that issue. Obviously, whose every turn it was to write the letter never read the earlier one.

These sites are great to look at beautiful pictures of woman. When I first began this journey I would send a photographer in the area. They would check the passport and take a picture. It was not unusual to find the person I dealt with was not the same. I reported to Anastasia that a woman had asked for money, a violation of their rules. Nothing was done. Since I have been on the site for 10 years I have seen the same pictures used over the ten years.

One other point, I have dated local Russian woman and have friends marry them. In every case they have been found to be cold and unfeeling. I suggest you contact your attorney general in regard to this site.

Rick January 25, 2013

Yes ... beware. I have dated many Russian and Ukrainian women ... beautiful but once you get to know them many are broken inside. The Ukrainian culture is corrupt (so is the Russian but Ukrainian more so). I married a Ukrainian woman and it was great for about 2 years .. then I saw how broken she was. So sad... you will loose a lot of money. if you think you can develop a relationship ... like making instant oatmeal, ie go on a romance tour and come back with a bride you are in for a rude rude wake up call. The way they bring up children is Tough ... hard on the boys. The father is generally absent. Most of them are just broken ... and they have no problem lying and cheating it becomes habit then a way of life ... it is sad.

Most off the pay as you go date sides are full of fakes and scams to get money from lonely old western men. And the culture is corrupt ... ask the locals it is fine to take money from a stupid westerner that thinks a 23 year hottie is interested in a 55 year old man. The average wage there is like $300 a month ... and the jobs are scare so being an internet hostess is a good job ...get it job ... no romance, no love .. JOB.

Hagar February 02, 2013

Absolutely spot on Rick. What you say is 100% correct. I have been to the Ukraine many times & even got scammed by 1 of the lieing *****es (Valeria Novitskaya of Nikolaev) She is a PAID chat hostess a very clever & devious scammer.

A hell of a lot of the country is corrupt. Which is a shame for the decent people that live there. The scammers & fakes are a real problem.Lieing is just a way of life for so many of the younger women there. They think all Western men are a soft touch.

I have been very happy with AnastasiaDate. I am still happy I find your web site.

I left a rebuttal to a person with my thoughts and experiences. I found a very sweet lady, which I will meet later this year, thanks to you. I will write the love story of the love of my life. And send pics of the wedding. You ever found someone who you have not met except, only in spirit. We have made a connection and it is growing stronger.

Thank you,

George.

SCAM for sure - use VK.COM better, its FREE and real.
December 31, 2012

Guys,

DO YOUR HOMEWORK. No European women are desperate to talk to Western guys. DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY ON DATING SITES. Save your money and fly to a real place for a week, and you have way more chances of meeting a real woman than over a dating site. You think woman will enter a dating site and pay to look for men thousands of miles away???? haha.

I met my wife in Russia. Trust me, no Russian women enter these sites unless they are getting paid. In Russia facebook is not very popular, they use VK.com, its free and all people are real. You have to realize Russian people are like the French, they don't speak English unless they have taken English in their university. Everything in Russia is translated to Russian, so there is never need to learn English.

Sorry to kill the hope on this site, but I know for sure it is a scam.

Allan January 10, 2013

Nothing wrong with being honest about this site - Thank You for your honest appraisal. A.Date is an absolute scam, and is making a fortune for their owners and the ladies who get paid to chat. Best of fortune to you and your wife!!

David January 11, 2013

Have you checked the IMBRA requirements? Best check there before following this guys advice. I am a happy member of Anastasia Date, I am even a VIP member. Seems you are misled by your own convictions. Have you ever been on tour with Anastasia Date? I have, it is real. I have firsthand knowledge of the ladies. The site is real, the ladies are real. They don't want to leave their home, but they want a husband, so they are willing to leave their home to find a man. You are correct, you should travel there and experience it first hand. The dating site will eliminate all the time wasted in questioning your chance encounters. If you don't want a lady that smokes, you will need to ask the ladies over and over again. This site is a search engine, it is up to you to meet her. Guys, get over there, find her, she wants to find you.

Chris B January 12, 2013

I am also a former member of the site. I met a really incredible girl and have visited her four times having been there, (Kiev) last in Dec 2012. I say former member because she and I are exclusive, we love one another very much. I've dated a lot in the U.S. and these girls are definitely different. Of course, be careful. I met girls on the site that just wanted perfume or whatever but definitely no plants and by and large extremely nice girls. In fact from what my girl tells me the guys sound much worse by far than the ladies. (lots of married guys and disrespectful jerks) I did spend thousands on the site, talked to lots of ladies and my girl and I did get off site and on Skype pretty quickly. By the way, I haven't made it official just yet but we did apply for the K-1 Visa we need to bring her here. My next trip to visit her will be with a ring. I'm 57. Amazing.

Robert January 12, 2013

David, You are quite naive. Of course the women are real, but it's their sincerity and motives that are the question. I have been to Ukraine 6 times, learning more and more each time. I went on 3 AnastasiaDate socials and they were all absolutely terrible - for the men and the women. First, no self-respecting woman goes to the socials. Who wants to be 1 of 200 women trying to get a chance to talk with 20 men? The socials are attended by the less attractive, less desired girls, professional daters looking for a sucker for free dinners and gifts, and "working" girls. AnastasiaDate is a fantasy site for chatting, letter-writing and the extremely expensive CamShare product. The tours are poorly run with the men left to fend for themselves and become victim to all types of dating scams (typical one being insincere girls going out on dates to get a good meal at a restaurant they could never go to with their friends). The interpreters prolong dates to make more money, and some agencies even allow the interpreter and girl split the $20/hr. interpreter fee because the agency makes its money from the girls' chats and letters. The only solution is to go over there with a reputable company and use your own interpreter. Check out Dream Connections as a good example.

Richard January 19, 2013

Unless you are familiar with Russia and the CCCP.... Don't expect some girl to want to leave... Especially true genuine Russian People. It is in their blood. They are proud of their country and heritage. They love the land. And no good girl is going to leave for some American. Also if they are so beautiful and young... Trust me. There are many much more wealthy men in Russia, that want young beautiful wife... You americans and europeans have nothing to offer. I am from Canada. And been in the CCCP for many years. No decent good girl is going to meet you on any site to marry and leave. You need live their. Learn the culture and history. FYI... Russians Love Putin and Stalin. Still to this day. It is only the traitors that don't want them. Gorbachev and Yeltsin are hated by the general pupblics and only seen as traitors, who sold the country to the west. Don't believe western media about such things... And in Ukraine. Outside of Lviv and part of Kiev most Ukrainians only speak Russian, and would sooner be part of the Russia, then part of the EU. Eastern Europe has pride, heritage and beliefs. They don't want run to the west as media would have you believe. And you will not learn this on some holiday there. You need live in the country as part of the people in normal life. You'll quickly learn. The west is not loved how ficticous western media would have you believe. If you want a happy marriage with the wonderful people of Eastern Europe ex-CCCP... You are better to live there, and work in the west. And if you haven't been to Belarus. It is a lovely place, where people have all!!! Life does not suck there. Life in Belarus is possibly even better then Russia. But you can never beet the heart and sole of True Russian people. Only greedy Crooks and Traitors want leave Russia for another life. Honest Russians, have no true desire to leave their homeland.

Rick January 25, 2013

I agree with what you said. I like Belarus ... nice people ... but such poverty.

They love their country and their culture.

Marc March 03, 2013

to be very careful; female and male liers, users, and thieves.

To boot, the government is corrupt.

Hagar March 08, 2013

Marc you are 100% correct having been to Ukraine many times myself... VK.com is also used by scammers.. Just google the name before you waste your time & money on a visit to Ukraine.. Always carry your passport with you. If not cash fine to officer Dibble has to be paid on the spot..The place is a minefield of corruption & deceit. It seems to be a way of life for some...

Beware
December 26, 2012

I was briefly married to a translator who worked for A Foreign Affair. I met her on another site. We emailed almost daily for about 1 year and talked on the phone regularly. I met her in Kiev for 10 days.

We got married and almost 3 years ot the day (time needed to get citizenship) she left to never be seen again. She was remarried within days of the final divorce. All of her friends were divorced as well that came to the US earlier. Rest assured, thngs are not that bad there in their country.

She once told me how the women really feel about the men who go on the socials etc.... Their comments were not positive, trust me. They want hot, rich guys! 90 % are scamms and you spend thousands in the meantime. They can have any man they wish based on their looks, why would they seek a 41 year old divorced male who is not rich or not a model.

After reviewing some experiences about AnastasiaDate.com left by older men, who were scammed, I questioned Olga via emailing her about questions I had about the dating service. Not only did she evade my questions, and no replies were ever received thereafter, but I got to realize that AnastasiaDate.com has translators at work, who not only translate, but who are in a position to alter your message to their delight, including omitting your questions altogether. Censorship is a reality with this service. Proceed at your own peril. Save your emotions from ruins, and run for the mountains quickly as your legs can carry you. And with credits still in my account, they indicate a no-refund policy. The fees are split 50% with the woman, the interpreter must be selected by AnastasiaDate.com, or else some violence may come unexpectedly. I am grateful I woke up to realize all appeared to be too good. Even the restaurant, the apartment are selected at high fees by this service. Must I say more! Wake up Americans, this is a real business- to take your money, and to humiliate you for being a simpleton.

Good Luck,

Walter

Latest update on Anastasisa: I wrote a letter to their customer service questioning why I was receiving 10-20 letters a day from much younger women. The site admitted that these letters were computer generated from women who met a certain profile that I was looking for. I was further advised that it was up to me to contact them to see if any were actually interested. Translation: when you get a "letter" out of the blue from a woman on Anastasia, question whether she has actually written to you, or you are just receiving a computer generated letter who matches the profile of a woman that you are looking for.

Dean January 16, 2013

I'm sure, everyone notices, when you reciecve their fist letter, your name is capitalized. Dear JOHN. I too, have recieved letters thanking me for sending one when I never did! All kinds of other small things which throw up the red flags!!

Hagar. January 19, 2013

Walter. I could not have put it better myself. It seems the U.S government don't give a toss about it either. as Anastasia is a U.S based company

Anastasia International Inc

40 High Street

Suite 1

Bangor

Maine 04401

USA.

Basically the site is a multi million $ fraud.

Rick January 25, 2013

Anastasia is just a corrupt company they have an army of lawyers and they protect themselves by shadow arrangements with all the sleazy dating sites in the FSU. They have no interest in the lonely man that gets ripped off ... there are always more suckers to follow. It is forums like this that will help. If men start to realize what a waste of money it is they will stop using the sites.

The site is a total absolute fraud.

A SCAM- I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE
December 25, 2012
I wanted to believe that this site was real. A few hundred dollars and a trip to Kiev where not one single one of the "ladies" I was going to meet actually showed up to meet me, I know it's fake. An absolute ripoff. Don't fall for it!!!

Burned i December 29, 2012

Here are my thoughts...I recently went to Ukraine for a 3 city tour where we had a Social in each city.In Nikolaev I encountered two girls,one spoke english.She offered to be the interpreter for her friend and me.She was not an official interpreter,but wanted to have me pay $15.00 per hour for her service.When I told her I would only use a legitimate interpreter she got pissed off and they both left.That was a scam I avoided.My next Social in Kherson I met Julia and her interpreter(who was not authorized as official) but I could not tell if she was,so I ended up spending one full day with them.Again it was $15.00 per hour plus meals,cab fares,etc.I paid for everything!After that day Julia was liking me so I paid for her and that interpreter to travel to Odessa for 2 days...yes,I paid for their apartment while I stayed in a hotel.After returning home I wanted to skype Julia,but she supposedly had no computer so hesitantly I sent money so she could get one.Yes,you guessed it.I never heard back from either one.They got my money and it was goodbye.

Bottom line here is alot of scammers show up for a great time that they could never afford otherwise and we western men get hurt.There are some legitimate ladies there,but they are few and you need to be mindful.Pay close attention.Yes,I had fun but there was never a love interest and as of now none of the 40 guys I went with ever got an engagement.Now that is bad!

Cris M January 01, 2013

Thank you for your review you saved my some cash.

Allan January 10, 2013

Wow "Burned" - sorry to hear about your experience. I've been to Ukraine twice myself - never met one person I had corresponded with. It's a shame that we Westerners are so "sad" - I guess for lack of a better word (myself included) that we'll actually believe in this scam. For those who pursue this, please do your research as there are some legit agencies and find some good "russian women discussion" boards to benefit from other's experiences. Trust me, you could literally save thousands of dollars just by doing a bit of forum searching and corresponding with those who have had the experience. Good luck to all.

David January 11, 2013

I have visited 5 times, and met over 35 ladies. This is not a scam. Individuals may choose not to meet with you. Overall, the ladies are like you, they have likes and dislikes. More than 7 of the ladies I dates were interpreters or English teachers. If you don't go, you will never know. Regarding meeting with you? Don't know what to say, I did have a lady waiting to meet me, and my plane hadn't even landed yet. Two others had taken me to the airport, just to make sure they had the last goodbyes for me. I am not rich, I am not trim, I am a bit of a fat, bald guy, with my two teens living in my home. Hmmmm. You interested in going again? Maybe I can help you avoid some of the mistakes.

Don January 12, 2013

David, do you really think all the women you met had pure and honest intentions towards you? If so, why after meeting 20 or more of these women are you not engaged? You are now up to 35 women instead and no mention of an engagement? These women can be sweet and polite, but often it's because you are spending money on meals and presents for them. Most of the activities in this industry have to do with $$, this is the main fact in this poor country where the average wage is $200 - $300/mo. Put yourself in their shoes, if a man comes to treat you special and make your dull life brighter with nice meals and gifts, does it matter if he is fat, bald or has children living at his home in a foreign country? Girls get paid on this site for chat, letters and even going on dates - I was told this by a local Odessa agency owner and a sincere interpreter I hired when I was there. There are good girls, but this site is ruining them!

Rick January 25, 2013

I married a Ukrainian girl that I met on a dating site. She was nice and honest but was broken inside. I lived there for two years and saw how it works ...there is such poverty and many more women than men, Pretty women are like pennies on the street .. Most of the dating sites are at least 80% scam ... you have to sort through a lot of crap to find the 20% good girls. The average wage there is about $300 a month so being a chat hostess is a good job especially if you have a kid and need flexible work. It is interesting some of the dating sites were former brothels ... but they found the could make more money with online dating.

Be very very careful .. if you go and do not speak Russian make sure your interpreter is on your site. That is hire your own interpreter. Be very very care of anything with any of these dating sites !!

Customer service and anti-scam are both complete jokes

50/50
December 22, 2012

from my experience is that this site does incentivate women to chat and there are lot of players out there...however there are some real good ones whos are just trying to have a better life and find love...one tip to se if shes real interested in you ask her adress home its allowed to be given and then you can write to her home adress and vice versa....also don't chat up because you will spend a fortune...best way is to get their home adress and then send a letter in their language translated in google for free and include your mobile number...if shes real trust me she will get back to you....but i must say you have to do your homework because most of them just are players.

Allan January 10, 2013

. . "best way is to get their address" - for those in the US, you CANNOT get their address! A.Date states there are US Federal Laws that prevent this, and that is partially true, but you will never get their address.

Don January 16, 2013

you can get their phone number. tne agency will block it if you send it all together but they can send it by, one digit at a time with each message.

AnastasiaDate C March 23, 2013

Thanks for your feedback. At AnastasiaDate we provide a platform to facilitate just that. It is also possible for the ladies to share their personal contact details with men by using our CallMe Service for example.

No experience
December 19, 2012

G'day John,

This is Andrew.

Mate I get frustrated when people make statements such as yours with literally no experience what so ever.

You spent $50!

Cmon how much experience could you have possibly attained and now you're giving to people advice that they are genuinely trying to obtain.

But you have virtually no experience and possibly should stick to commenting on things where you actually have some sort of basic idea.

To everyone else as now a number of people have said that is part genuine and part scam.

Just be smart.

Only talk to girls in camera.

I think most of us can tell if someone if someone is attracted to us by her body language

Does she laugh etc

Just be smart

Most will revert to skype with you quite quickly if they are interested

Good lick there are some good girls there

Unfortunately some not so good ones too

Hagar December 23, 2012

Most of the girls on camera are working for agencies that supply girls profiles to Anastasia.

John January 13, 2013

Andrew, John here. I have actually been to the FSU 12 times. How many times have you been there? How many women have you met online? Have many have you actually met in person in the FSU? How many websites have been a member of? I could write a book about this entire dating experience with women from the the FSU.I doubt many men can come close to my experience at all of this. Take a look at all the negative posts about Anastasia on this site. Are all these guys wrong?? You had a good experience and from your one experience, you conclude Anastasia is on the level. As I said, look at all the other posts from guys who felt scammed, including me.

Hagar January 19, 2013

John. You are 100% correct. I have visited Ukraine many times over the last 5 years. & have used different dating sites. I would say Anastasia is the biggest scam site of them all. The girls on camera ARE PAID to chat & write letters. If they do not reply to your letter they loose cash. (Its a fact) The scammer i mentioned earlier Valeria Novitskaya was on RLM as well as many other sites & when they found out she was a scammer, My cash was refunded no questions asked & i got a letter of apology & free credits.& her profile was removed. When i informed Anastasia about her activities & tried to send proof they did not give a f... & she is still there which should prove to any 1 its a scam site full stop.

Rick January 23, 2013

Valeria ripped me off ... I had her kicked off RLM aka HRB. I visited her twice a year ago November then in December of 2011. She is the best liar you will ever meet. Stay away from her at all costs and any agency that lets her work there. She is on at least 20 sites ... but only active on a few. Back then she was not on any scam sites ... I reported her first I am glad others have chimed in ... so dumb asses like me can avoid being taken advantage of by this beautiful ***** ... the best liar ever. I have never met anyone as good as her ... I guess it is her job. Anastasia is a well know rip off sight avoid. My rule learn from painful experience is avoid all pay by message dating sites.

I`m Confused !!
December 14, 2012

I read All the comments here & really I became more confused more than ever !

Ok .... Some say : It`s a scam !! Do not follow ' Anastasia' !! ( with evidences )

One says : It`s not a Scam ! ( with evidences )

One says : I got married from a site or something !!

the question here is .... Who can I believe !? All the answers persuaded me !!

But I have an opinion , I see the site isn`t a scam litterly , but it has a scam Part ... This part can be seen when you register on the site with too many different e-mails !! you find the same girls who sent you the same repeated letters in your old account are sending you again on your new one !!

The same form of letter , the same photo ( if found ) Every thing !!

That made me say the site is A scam !

On the other hand you can find a girls Who is really serious !!

But I see It`s very hard to be a '' Scam'' ... Why ?

Actually there are more than 10,000 Girls out there !!

If it`s a scam as you guys reclaim ... How can I persuade 10,000 girls ( for example ) to take them from 5 to 30 photos a girl !! I mean this is a little bit confusing o_O .

Yet , when you start to write a letter to a woman , She can refuse you !! I tried it my self ! 6 girls refused a relation with me ,, But I could be in a relation with more than 50 beautiful ones !, It`s not my point , but I see that the site attract you in the start by the chat messages appearing in the right corner , some letters sent to you which are free ... This is the Scam Part , but once you pay .... I think it`s a different matter .

Gtsam December 17, 2012

It has its money part but all things concidered its not a scam.

I went to the Ukraine and met some of these women and they are real.

They were not the glamour shot girls in the pics on the site but they were the same person. They are done up to the tee in those pics so try to see pics of them in real life. They are however looking to find a true man.

Hope this helps.

Hizaleus December 19, 2012

How did you ever get to meet them? The site controls and limits communication to what costs credits. How did you get to know someone well enough to want to visit and make the arrangements?

Hagar December 23, 2012

You can not meet the ladies concerned unless you use Anastasia to meet them. I informed them of a well known scammer using there site who i actually met & got scammed by a long time ago. Valeria Novitskaya of Nikolaev. Id 1692679. when i informed Anastasia they did NOTHING. So i guess she must be working for an agency that supplies them with ladies. i'd say about 10% of the women are genuine & looking for a relationship. The rest are scammers or have no interest at all.Use your head.

Allan January 10, 2013

No problem "I'm confused" - go join Scam Date, give them your money and you'll eventually get it. A-date runs ads in Ukraine papers soliciting young beautiful women to "chat" with western men. They get paid to chat with you - you can google this for yourself - make your own mind. Good luck!

Mike March 16, 2013

Allan, I have to agree with you, I was on A-Date for about a year it didn't cost me a lot of money because I figured out that a lot of the "girls" get payed to chat. I chatted with a few & it was cool, but if you start watching who is on-line all the time you figure it out pretty fast......I mean how many doctor's have the time to chat 10-15 hour's a day? And remember (I'm in the US on the west coast) the time difference it's 10 hour's ahead in Odessa & all these women, doctor's, lawyer's, ect....are up all night chatting everyday???? LOL I don't think so....

I have been to Ukraine many times over the years. Yes, the women there are attractive and good people. It is possible to meet a nice woman on the street, cafes, restaurants, night clubs etc. You have to pay your due diligence to find the good girls. Please avoid most of the pay per email dating agencies - these are Scam sites only to make money on Western men. You will not receive good results doing business with them. The sad fact is that they are grooming these women to become gold-diggers and professional daters only to pretend to like you. "Instant Electronic Gratification" Don't think that these women are falling madly in love with you the moment that they meet you! It just doesn't work that way. These women are really not desperate to leave their countries, friends and families behind like these agencies may lead you to believe.

Few tips: Do not use any of the big dating agencies like Anastasia and AFA! these are not dating agencies per say but a glorified escort service. Their socials are a set up for failure by default, you will not meet a genuine good girls at any of these socials. These tour operators want you to fail so that they can sell you another tour - "A Tuer"

It is possible to meet good girls in the Ukraine and Russia but do it on your own. Grab a buddy, book a flight and go together! Make all the arrangements yourself. All accommodations can be made easily over the internet. Shop around for the best flight price. Switch dates and times around, look at other airline companies. The time of season you are going will have a big impact on price.

When you do meet a girl that you want to go on a date. Hire your own interpreter, she will work on your behalf and not the woman's. Chances are if your date brings her own interpreter she knows her very well and they are both in on the take.

Keep the first few two dates simple - Meet for coffee and pastries. Don't agree if your date wants to take you to some exclusive high-priced restaurant. If the girl is interested in you she won't refuse if she does then refuse then drop her and go meet other women.

I spent much money needlessly with Anastasia when I first began my quest to meet foreign women. It was a huge mistake !!! Anastasia - we American men are on to you! We know that you run a big scam and you act like nothing wrong ever goes on. 90% of your women in your database are scammers groomed by your management to defraud men of their money. AFA is no better!
