Is Anastasiadate a fraud or a scam?

I do not take a stand for or against the Anastasiadate, and if it would be a scam or fraud. I will just tell the facts … it is.

All the facts are based on only my personal experience, the things that I have heard of girls, with what I’ve seen in Ukraine and have seen on various internet sites.

If you have not yet purchased the “credits” you can congratulate yourself, by reading this you can save thousands of dollars. If you have purchased … you might be comforted to hear that you’re not the only one.

Anastasiadate does not pay for girls … but the ladies ‘agencies’ pay. I can’t claim that all agencies would pay, but the girl whom I met in Kiev told me that all the girls will get money from the correspondence. She told that when a customer would pay 100 dollars to the girl gets 100 in local currency (approx. 10%). I am pretty sure that Anastasiadate has denied this in the agreements with the agencies … but accidents might occur …
Which one is easier to believe: Anastasiadate, which wants to tell you that it was just bad luck, or that girl who explained to me for two days how Anastasiadate works…

When I used Anastasiadaten “services”, it happened as follows:
I changed numerous letters with one of the girls. When I believed, I was in love with her, I wanted to call her. Absence of any other alternative, I used Anastasiadate‘s “Call me” -service. The call costed me about 60 USD. A little later, I found out that the girl whose photographs were on profile, was not written me letters nor talked with me on the phone.
The following is a quote from an email, which I got the right girl (Her English language is even worse than mine …sorry):

And  director of this site decided that would be nice if with you talking
 is translater when I work  on my job. I don't know nothing at first, but 
when I found this,  I could not do anything because she said that  will 
write to you. Letters written to you a translater, and chatting with you to she.

That’s just a short quote, but became abundantly clear from the e-mails, that she had not written the letters, chatted with me or talked with me on the phone. When she writes “director of this site”, she does not mean Anastasiadate director, but her agency director. I paid hundreds of dollars to Anastasiadate… Is this a scam or a fraud?

Anastasiadate is by no means the only so called dating site, which uses agencies. Some agencies serve at the same time a number of sites. Another bad example of so called dating site is the Find-bride. When one girl was about to get fired Anastasiadate website, she introduced me to this “better” site. The site is not any better, but this revealed to me that both use the same agency. How do I know this? The girl, who introduced the site to me, was at the same time video chat with me on the both sites. :)

What are these agencies?

The short answer: these are the little helper of the Sites, such as Anastasiadate. These agencies can be found in almost every city in Ukraine. These agencies are the girls’ employers. They are looking for girls job by search sites and by newspaper ads. Example from site jobs.ua:

    Glad you were smart enough to read the signs before you went there. Sorry it took a few thousand dollars.

    Guys. These girls will do anything for money accept sex. translators even if they have good English. Buy them gifts and they will return to the shop for cash refund. Apartments, Jesus, you can get a better apartment for half the money using a number of websites.

    Keep money in wallet and see if you can get her off the site. I did and we are very happily married. Age difference is 24 years.

    If they wont use Skype or email, then they just want your money. I am watching one poor guy at the moment. he telephones her, they still use the site and the video. This girl drives a BMW and holidays abroad every year, but she does not work accept on 3 sites and our friends Anastasiadate are one. She has absolutely no interest in him apart from the credits he spends.

    A smart tip. When they hit 28 29 or older, then they will become a little more serious. before that, they live in hope of finding a Ukrainian husband. Even if they are 29 or 37, make sure they are single or divorced. page 8 on their passport.

    Rule 1 tho….Keep your wallet closed. No real Ukrainian girl would ask for money.

    Well, my story is pretty similar to what I have read here, and I am finally away from the Anastasia website. I had been corresponding with a woman for about a year and a half and had arranged a trip but decided to cancel as something did not sound right. I’m out the ticket, but it would have been more. Her profile stated that her English skills were advanced. Strange, when I had planned a trip she said she would need a translator and to further complicate things she then stated that she would only be able to meet when she was off of work. You would think spending time with someone in reality is important for any relationship to go further. She also stated that she would make all arrangements for an apartment. I though about this and decided not to go and from this point on, my outlook with this particular woman changed. Yep, I got sucked in with the chats, emails, video chats, gifts and everything else, and I always wondered if the women did get compensated for their time. Well, for me it was a hard lesson learned, and I find that all I had to do was look right here for someone.

    All I have to say its sad when a guy has to take such steps to find a women he likes.
    I have dated and been in relations with American women and have been called Attractive, handsome, Great body.
    I must say I do like Ukraine- Russian women from the ones I met here in USA.
    The chances of meeting one online on these sites like the ones you mentioned is less then 5% and that’s after you spend Thousands of dollars.
    Ive been scammed, so I know it sucks.
    These sites make it hard for the real women that want to meet real Men from other countries.
    And to hear that some of these women working for these sites think the guys are losers yet play games with there emotions and money is sad, o well, what can you do?
    Just forget it!
    Maybe the free sites may work but its hard to trust people anywhere USA, or abroad, so you take a chance.
    Lucky there are sites like this to help NICE guys that just want to be happy with someone, After all isn’t that what every one wants.

      Man, sorry to read your story. You are very perceptive tho. It does make it very difficult for the 5% of girls who do want a foreign man.

      Anastasiadate do not care 1% about you, just your money. They blatantly lie about their verification system and how they check. Yes Anastasiadate I said Lie and blatant and take me to court because I have proof.

      they dumped a girl and within 2 months she was back using their site, with a few minor changes. I can show you a few profiles who are happily married, but who work this site and others.

      Guys, keep wallet closed. Get her off the sites and on to Skype

    I just randomly did a search on their web site for a 21 year old blonde girl. There were hundreds of women to choose from. OK, so I chose (ID: 1753775), an innocent looking but attractive woman. I tracked down her VK and Instagram accounts and found that her name was Anastasia Alexandrovna Savitskaya. I could not believe my eyes. She had so many photos of her kissing and hugging her boyfriend. The written notes on her Instagram posts had several messages professing her love to her boyfriend. The photos with her boyfriend were different than the innocent pictures on her Anastasia Date profile. Quite frankly, the photos on her private accounts looked trashy. This same woman can be seen on Anastasia Date web site talking to whoever will pay money. I pity the foreign guy who thinks he is going to marry this girl. It is just a job where she can make some money and nothing else. This woman should be banned from the site because her intentions are not true. It really is a shame that men are going to flush money down the toilet on her and many women like her. Somebody needs to put a stop to this. It is not right.

    I too have been taken for thousands of dollars by this site. It’s like crack, very hard to give it up.

    I complained to the website administrator after seven girls failed to show for meetings. Their response, they closed my profile and deleted my account saying I could no longer use it because I insulted them!

    I’m 54 who is writing to a 28 yr old lad in Odessa for 3 months now. She wanted me to chat live and I told her I don’t know if I will be chatting with her or a translator. She finally posted her 3 min video and I told her how do I know if you are current and active…I told her if we can do Skype.com live. Anastasiadate don’t want this and “blocked it out with asterisks” and won’t change personal informations. Women there complained how hard their life is and Ukraine as one of the worst economy in the world. I almost bought a round trip ticket there for June trip until I read this thread here about scam and fraud. If she is real and in love with me , I told her to save money and borrow money from friends/relatives/family to come here (she was able to travel abroad to Cyprus) and I will reimburse them. Unfortunately, she said she can’t. I hope other guys will “cutoff” ties with these dating scam sites instantly.

    Quite an accurate article. 99% of these sites are exactly the same, they pay the agencies an incentive based commission, which they must know gets paid to the ladies.

    Of course they will deny this and act when they have proof, but they do nothing unless there are complaints, which sort of blows their “anti-fraud” claim out of the water. Try emailing them and asking them, why their system splits up the commission for every girl and every activity. It is simply so the agencies know which girl has earned what and from this they calculate her pay.

    the website Anastasiadate is one of if not the biggest player and they spend a fortune on marketing and very little on a credible fraud detection system.

    Due diligence guys, do some homework before allowing your penis’s to think. Thats why the glamour photo’s. Search for her using phrases from her profile. You may be surprised to find her on so many other sites. Do a reverse photo search. many times I discovered the dance teacher to be a prostitute or in one case a topless erotic DJ, but you also often discover their social network pages and from this boyfriends, husbands etc. Learn her online routine and if she is as regular as a Swiss watch, ask yourself why? Especially if she appears online during their night and supposedly holds down a day job.

    Do not assume that after buying her contact details that she will use Skype or regular email. Do not buy her gifts through the site, the agency usually does not even buy the gift and merely takes a photo of her with an empty chocolate box or at the florist shop holding the over priced roses you think you bought her.

    Do not assume her age is accurate, many of them are in fact underage.

    Avoid using any of the services of the site to arrange travel and or accommodation, you can always find as good an apartment for way less than they will rip you.

    If travelling to meet her, ask if she will need a translator. Don’t think Google translator will cut it. If she does, consider engaging your own translator, rather than use the office girl. Usually these office translators are not qualified and if they are ripping you, they will be involved and try to manipulate your daily activity to get kickbacks from restaurants, taxi’s etc. They often can’t really speak or understand English at an advanced level and are very expensive.

    If she is under 28 and you are over 45, forget it. 28 is the age when they start to feel old and will consider an older man. If you are butt ugly, overweight etc and she looks like Miss World, it is a rip off.

    I have no particular axe to grind with any one site, they all fail miserably in the anti fraud department and are very expensive. If they were ensuring the accuracy and serious intent of the women, then maybe this fee they charge could be considered good value, but as they can’t and do not want to, their fee’s are excessive.

    Remember, if you try and get her off the site, to Skype etc, you lose any protection the site offers, so buy her contact details from the site, that way if she does prove to be a scammer, you can have a go at the site as they provided her details after verifying her identity.

    Do not despair, there are many legitimate women and if you do some research and don’t let peter penis think for you, I am sure you will find a nice woman, I have. Age difference is 26 years and I do not have Getty’s bank account or Redford’s looks. She is slim, attractive, attentive, sexy, a great cook, loves housework and loves me.

    Good Luck

    Very good for you in meeting your lady outside of adate ! The lady who you talked to from the site mostlikey new English very well. The translator is just another one of the dating site schemes! Paying for translation and they both split the money. The reason why she didn’t hold hands or made you wonder if she liked you is she was not single. She very much could have been married! Saw and hear of this many times. While I am in Ukraine I see U.S. wallets and I ask them what their travel is for. When I hear they are there for adate! I try to enlighten them. I just hope more men realize this and read of these post. Yes, fdating.com is a good site! But men and the ladies still should head caution. Best wishes!

    Wow. The swine dear.
    I spent a lot of money on that site talking to one lady who was then 49 and I was 61 back in may 2014. Our chats were long every night which you have to buy credits for and letters. The whole site is a money pit, but I did meet her in Odessa where she lived. I booked my own flight and apartment which saved me a fortune than booking through Anastasia. The woman I talked to on site was loving and said all the right words and claimed she could speak some English. When I got to Odessa airport, she and an translator were waiting for me. Nice I thought. Turns out she could just about say hello. She had taken the week off but her boss wanted her to go back to work for most of the day, so I sat in my apartment until 4.30pm every day until she turned up with the translator. She would not hold hands or anything like that, in fact, this loving lady who I had been chatting to for three months was nothing like the lady I was meeting. I asked the translator if she liked me and she said yes, very much so, but she is old fashioned in her ways, not the lady I was talking to on Anastasia by any means. The last night I was there, we went to a club and we did have a close dance, but that was it, not even a kiss on the cheek. I have written my story else where on this site, but I did make very good friends with the translator and we still talk until this day. The story’s are true, the woman get paid, that’s why they try to keep you chatting a long time and as soon as I got back, I chatted to the lady on email, but I found her on Anastasia and when I asked why she was still on there, her excuse was, I was waiting for you my love. Bull shit. She was still chatting and answering letters to make her money, but talking to me on email. In the end, it didn’t work out as she had problems, so I finished it and finished with Anastasia. I put it down to a bad experience in which I lost lots of money for nothing. But if you look at most of these Russian dating sites, they all use the same pay for credits for every thing. A total rip off.
    P. S
    I now have a Russian girlfriend who came to see me. We are in love and she wants to move here permanent with me. Where did we meet. On a totally free dating site call FDating.

      Same story, as with me and my South African husband with whom I am living for 5yrs and looking forward to spending 10times as many. We met on absolute free of charge dating site called *********.** by sheer accident. I didn’t look for love, marriage or even worse, sponsorship or a ticket to better life, only wanted to improve my English by speaking to someone for whom it is their mother tongue. Also these folk allow you to exchange your contact info, unlike those swines from Anastasia. Honestly I hate their set up and the likes, because they make our women look bad, like expensive prostitutes and gold hunters. They give naive foreigners false ideas that in Russia we are suffering to such extent that it makes us forget about pride and dignity or that we are ready to trap ourselves in loveless relationship with an old bag of money. I wonder, if there’s no legal means to close down this whore house? So many guys were taken for a ride but Anastasia seem not to give a flying shit and continue sort of they are as innocent as a newborn baby.

        Yes, there are legal ways to stop these scam dating sites. AnastasiaDate has offices in New York and Moscow with its server in a 11 million dollar building on Long Island. AnasatiaDate (AD) states, through the women’s videos and on the website, that their women are only listed on their site. They know these women are also on many competing sites (I told them to make sure). That statement constitutes fraud. But unfortunately, the authorities don’t want to be bothered. (yes, I talked to them too.)
        I did do one thing that worked for me with some one who was doing a number on me. I found her profile on social sites such as VK and OK.ru. I joined VK and added a few pics . Then I got about 20 screen captures of this woman’s profiles, and activity in the many scam dating sites. I added these screen captures to an album on my VK page. I then changed my profile pic to a photo of her and visited her page at VK. At her page, I sent friend requests to all of her friends. I suddenly had many visitors to my VK page. Within 2 days, she was not on any dating sites. This is somewhat time consuming, but if enough people did this, women would start leaving these dating sites. AD has about 31,000 women listed with about 28,000 of them from Ukraine. I would think that if 20% of these women (the most active) leave these sites, the sites will go down due not enough income to cover costs. Here are some tips if anyone else is interested:
        1 Use ” Google.com.ua ” for searches. It gives much better results than “google.com”
        2 Search websites such as VK.ru , OK.ru , @mail.ru etc. to find the profile of the woman that may be scamming you. I just search the city and women the same listed age. If you don’t find her on a social site, consider her a fake at the dating sites. Don’t plan on setting up many phony accounts on these social sites, they use a verification process that prevents that.
        3 When I did this, some of her online friends tried playing “Dick Tracy” with me,so use your acct at these social sites for just the purpose intended.

    No way a 26 year old would be serious about a 67 year old. Yes a 20 to 25 year maximum age difference. Just proof of how the ladies, sorry the bots at the site mislead men.

      Well Dan – I wonder how many men paid her for a passport and visa ? My stupid husband being one of them. He also gave her money, gifts and wined and dined her. The last skype chat I read, she was going to find them a flat for the week he was there. He has returned there now but says hes not meeting her and its finished. Its not the site thats a scam, its the girls !!! I honestly feel I can never trust him again and its going to be very difficult to take him back, if ever.
      Good luck Steve. I hope it works out for you.

    Anastasiadate.com is affliated with the sites above as well. Everything you say is true. I basically go there to surf now and do not spend money. It’s a very elaborate fraud or scam whatever you want to call it that is legal and unregulated. Basically the site and the women are here to earn money not to meet or be in a relationship with you. If you look closely most of the women are older than there pictures on Amolatina and Anastasia.com. If you look at all the pictures you almost always see an outlier pic thats 5-10 years older than the profile picture. The Asian women are ugly without the makeup the agency has given them,but they take advantage of men’s impulses to have a beautiful woman. I read all the reviews and took the advice and did not fall for the tricks they played to get your money. If you want a asian woman your best bet is a filipina they already speak english and more attractive than chinese women anyway. As far as Russian women who in their right mind would go there right now with all the wars and instability. As far as Latiin women if you are american costa rican and brazilian women are my favorite. The money you will spend talking on these fake sites you can take a flight there and back and actually meet some attractive women I plan on traveling to the Philippines this spring to meet a filipina i have talked to online for two years now that’s real. I met her through filipinacupid.com a great website. Finally don’t be an idiot guys, you have heard it here.

    Just wanted to say thanks for your site. Opened my eyes. I have been on anastasiadate for six months. I actually had a trip planned to see a girl from the site and have now cancelled my plans. I’m out a plane ticket but will save all the money for a hotel, passport, and all the other expenses I would have had if I would have gone. I found the girls profile on your list of women with anastasiadate and vk accounts. I obtained a vk account and sent a message to the girl I was talking to. She replied saying she would communicate using only anastasiadate. I spent a lot of money on anastasiadate. It’s hard to believe I was deceived in such a cruel way. To be honest it hurts. But oh well. It’s time to slap my face and wake up. Life does go on. One thing is for sure. I will no longer be using anastasiadate. Thanks agIn for your site. It helped put an end to my confusion. I have been wrestling back and forth in my mind for months. I have been constantly wondering if I was being deceived. This site helped me see that I was.
    Thanks again.

      My husband pf 42 years has been caught up with this site for 5 and a half years. Incredible to believe but true. I have now kicked him out. He has spent all our savings and more on some 26 year old girl. He has sent her money for a passport and visa plus plus plus. He says he needs to see her one more time to clear his head !!! Out you go :( He will not stop until he has prooved its a scam …why !!! I have seen some of his chats with her and its not just words as he keeps telling me, its real. They have met…twice. I have seen a bag of jewellery he bought her and the perfume etc etc. Does a 26 year old have any interest in a 67 year old !! Who is the dumb one here !! What makes you think its a scam, I would love to know. Thanx for sharing.
