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

      Not hard to guess who are all those guys who give high ratings for AD at rating sites (e.g. Sitejabber); fake profiles from organisation staff. No real man with some common sense will believe their is real interest in you as a person. I have now for 3/4 of a year experience at the site and spend more than 2500 dollars on mainly chatting with about 5 girls. I previously selected them carefully (I am 57 years old, prefer high educated, blond, good appearance, common interests, good sounding, sparkling profile texts, etc., etc.). With 4 of them I chatted, corresponded extensively, got their mail addresses (by sending ridiculous expensive gifts with a personal text via the site). All of them told me they liked me, want to meet me, adore me, etc. All told them about the costs and in fact it would be rather silly to just stay chatting at the site. But after some months, when I asked them to try to chat outside the site (Skype or otherwise) all kind of excuses came: not good with computers, only feel easy and safe at the site, viruses, etc. When I carefully try to tell them that I think this is strange and I do not believe it all, that I read similar stories from others, they get annoyed and say I am insulting them, are to suspicious, are rude, etc. One girl, who clearly lied to me just told me that I am insulting her only and she does not want to write me back by mail anymore. The only insulting remark I supposingly made was that I told her that she did not sent me a mail she told me she sent and that she had worked on it for hours (I gave her 2 mailadresses and I checked the spamfilter).

      But guys, I see here many complaints, identical stories of scamming. AD is just a criminal organisation so an organisation with the intend to cheat. Why is there no coordinated action to take against this? With all scammed man their must be a way to take action. Give me an address where to go to with all these cheated and scammed and we can take action against it. Their are millions (money) involved with this, it is big business and legal action has to be taken against. But if everybody only complaints here nothing will happening ofcourse.

      Who has any idea on this? Please react here.


  1. Peter

    yes mate ive lived it and done it….Now the latest with anastastia/Russian brides site….You think you are on a chat with them and you can see the video of the person…..well guess what is is bullshit…..because it is a prerecorded video…..try asking one of them to wave to you……It is a scam….scam scam….I know because i have met people working for them…..I wont say where but lets say……i know what goes on…

  2. Diana

    Yeps. That is exactly what I have discovered when a couple of guys on South African side asked for my assistance, knowing that I am of Russian -Ukrainian origin and would probably be able to dig out more info on their Anastasia sweethearts. Until certain moment I was sure that AD were legit, it couldn’t come together in my mind that such well established company with the world known name could be a bunch of scammers. Also girls looked so beautiful and a way under age stated on their profile. One rule of cyber dating, if you’re serious about finding your missing half is not to fake your identity and post unedited pics, so I couldn’t comprehend that the ladies pics might have been airbrushed!!! All poo started coming out as I began with my little private investigation. Yet after tons of evidence were thrown into my buddies faces, one of them went to Odessa , met “the love of his life” for whose sake he dumped his loyal wife of 20 yrs, came back to SA with heavy heart and light banking account, but still believes that she was only scared away by perspective of living on the farm!!!! What do they tell about fools and their money us true. Good that this site exists, and new potential victims can educate themselves before playing AD’S stupid roulette. One last advise to those who even after reading all above still think that their honey bunny might be for real. Would you want to date and marry a girl who is quite comfy with the idea of posing like a cheap s…t in a red lights district window? Or do you think that altering your pics is fair? Choice is yours, all stories written out of personal experience are here to read.

    Hi Everyone, This has been enlightening. I have been on for a few years. I sure wish that I’d been award of this before being burned. During the last few years I’ve spent thousands of dollars on the service, as well as two trips over there to Odessa and Dnepropetrovsk. TOTAL SCAM is all I can say. Several girls I had been writing to for months refused to meet with me. Some girls who I was supposed to have been chatting with and talking to, I actually met. But when I met them it became obvious that they had not been the ones writing to me and didn’t know anything about me. Some made it obvious when I first met them, they acted like they were so surprised that I look fairly handsome. Some even commented on this to the interpreters. I understand a little Russian and could tell they were commenting on my appearance. To even feel like a bigger idiot, I even bought a diamond ring, worth thousands of dollars and fully intended to give it to someone.

    I did meet an independent interpreter who told me that she thought 80% or more of the women were scammers. She told me that she sees the ads for translators to pose as women from the site frequently. She says they offer from $900 to $1500 a month to do this. This is a huge salary in that country! Thankfully I met her and she was kind enough to show me around and spend some time with me so that I wouldn’t be so totally bored there. I had one girl who I’d been writing offer to come see me in Dnepr from Kherson, but that she would only be able to visit for a couple of hours. She said she needed $400 for the taxi ride. Certainly I have more money than sense because I agreed because we had the most amazing communication for several months. And she seemed so lovely and smart and sincere. When she arrived, my interpreter noticed that the plates on the taxi were Dnepropetrovsk plates. She said all the taxis had identification letters from the region they worked in. We checked on this, an sure enough it was true. So she must have taken a bus from Kherson for $20 or so and split the $400 with the driver. And like the other men, our meeting was very cool and non committal, with none of the sweet, loving talk we had been having for months. Scammed again!

    I work in film and tv and have written a screenplay about my experiences. It’s called “Odessa” and I hope it will help get rid of these agencies and women who scam the hell out of sincere and unsuspecting men like me. I also want to film a documentary on this, and alert some news magazine show like 60 minutes about this. And I would welcome any input into this that could help further this goal. We need to get the word out!

    1. Peter

      I wont hesitate i have been to Russia and Ukraine……Russia takes the prise with website scams and ukraine are very close to it as well……I have been many times and yes ive been on the sites and ive met girls that used to work for these companies….and some of these girls have worked there most of there lives because it is the only way to get money….I have many many stories as ive travelled through both of these countries…..and to be honest…..95% off the women are the biggest liars that ive ever met…i will leave it there……but the other 5 % very good….good luck finding an honest one…

      1. Steve fone

        I was on there for a year. Lost lots of money on that site. Went to Odessa for a week to see her. Totally different woman from the one I had been talking to. Looks wise Yes. But the bull shit I was fed and the person I met. Totally different.
        I know one of the staff who works for one of the many agency’s in the Ukraine for Anastasia, she’s a translator and became a good friend, so much so, she came on holiday to England for a couple of weeks. She gave me the complete low down on Anastasia and Russian brides and she said it’s a total scam and easy money made for the American who runs it. She spoke to and done letter to thousands of men who thought they were talking to there loved ones online.
        Enough said.

    2. Elizabeth

      Hi everyone.
      I do not know if it can help you but i decided to tell you my story and prove you that anastasiadate is a huge system of scam.
      I found in the internet the job offer. They needed the interpreter so that to translate correspondence. As my level of English is more or less intermediate I decided to apply for that position. (And it was the worst experience I ever had) There were no description of the requirements, all the details I got later via email. The manager of the agency (located in Odessa) told about the rules and said that my duty was not only to answer emails but also chat with man. So, she gave me several “girls” and I started my job. I thought I will call every girl via phone when someone will start chat with. No! All I needed to do was to keep man talking in chat and spend as much time there as possible! The more you sit in chat – the more salary you get! I asked manager if any of those girls were ready to meet a man. The answer was outstanding – she said that all girls have their own private lives and they are not interested in foreigners at all! They agreed to post their photos on the site because agency paid them for it. Some girls are not interesting in meetings at all, but some of them go on the meetings but their aim is not to find their love… All they want is to get a lot of money from a man, a lot of gifts and so on.
      As for the camera. I was told when man will ask about Camshare I need to tell that camera is broken, or the girl is somewhere without camera, or she is without make up, or something else. So, men never knew who they were communicating with! But do not be so happy if you communicate with girl in chat and she switch on her camera. If she does it it means she is a translator, who is registered on the site so that to double her salary because Camshare is paid more expensive.
      This site from the first word to the last is a scam. Why men spend a lot of money there? Just imagine, how can lonely mother with a child sit 8 hours in chat? How can student who wants to reach big results in study sit 8 hours in chat?? How can managers and office-workers sit 8 hours in chat? How can fitness trainers spend all day in chat?? Mothers should take care about their children. Fitness trainers should help people to keep fit. Managers should do their job instead of wasting their time. And so on.
      Another point. Email. Girl will never exchange emails with you, because it is not profitable to her! Even if she did it through the expensive phone call (!), she will always find a lot of reasons so that not to write you back. She will spend a lot of time in the chat and will not answer your letters on free email system. Guess why? Because this job (chats, emails and even fake private emails) do translators.
      If you really met honest girl, she gave you your email, you have wonderful communication via Skype – it means, that you met 1% of the honest and sincere girls, who are really looking for their love.
      Never give up in your search. Hope for the best. But firstly think if you want to be loved or be betrayed by the huge system of dating scam.
      If you have any questions – i will answer them)

        Hi Elizabeth

        I always found it amusing that a working lawyer could be on Anastasiadate as well as 2 other sites, every night (Ukraine Time) between 11pm and 6am. Accept of course when she is having her annual vacation abroad.

        Guys, ask yourself. If you had a full time day job, how long would it take you to become fatigued, being online for 6 to 7 hours after midnight, every night and I mean 7 nights a week. We can’t do it therefore its impossible for them to do it. It is physically impossible.

      2. Paul

        Hello Elizabeth,

        I appreciate your honesty but I wish my dumb ass had not spent thousands of dollars and wasted years of my time being scammed by this treacherous, deceptive site. I am very disappointed in my naive stupidity to believe this was an honest sincere dating site. Well I am glad I never was foolish enough to purchase a ticket to big let down. I hope at the end of the day the scammers get what their lies perpetrate.

    3. Andrew chen

      Yes, I agreed with you, Paul, I have been with Anastasia date for 3 years, I also spent thousand dollar.I ever did ask money from the girl Melitpol for her for buying winter shoes usage on winter suffer time very cool, What I found when I logged in the site, the system automated all chatting form ask me to chat for some girls I been chatted too. they try to attract you spent much more longer time on chatting to spend more credit , it is same spend more your money, some the girl while chatting the girl sending your few photos to open then she get pay commission of each picture 1 US$, extend your longer time for chatting get more income for the girl. its extreme every day you got BOMMS mails from hundred girls saying that interesting with m. all are bullsyiit.

      The other girl I writing mail & chatting to is from Nikolave are same too. I am not sure she is sincerely want me event love me, we spent some six months time chatted each other, as I promised these two girl That I will coming on Spring time, May this 2016, but I still doubt its I will get one of these two girls ? or I will facing same problem with your experienced that you could not meet the real girl that you been chatted to her , give me advice Paul to be honest with I never been in Ukkraine yet, Nikolaev or Melitopol, But I am curious the fact there…

      yes its good idea to make film your experienced journey to full completed then publish on internet every body can link to watch your film,,, do it Paul. I support this idea.

        My God! I can’t respond because no one is monitoring this site! What is wrong with the site owner?!?!?!

        Andrew, don’t go!!!! You will be putting your life in danger. The scam has gotten much worse and the industry is losing money. If you go, if you stay in an apartment they choose, if you use only the people your scammer suggests, you could be in deep trouble. Don’t go!!! Please someone! Stop this man from going over!

      Hi Paul, I would love to help you on your odessa project with my extensive knowledge and experience with Anastasiaweb. I spend at lease pass 10 year with spend over $20,000 with Anastasiaweb and i lived odessa for a while to figure out how thing works. I can spends hours to write down my experience. but let me give you some fact and a few humorous real life story.
      For easy mention in following, i refer anasweb to

      30% of woman on this site have been married according to an anasweb interpreter told me this years ago and later we become good friends. And my research was even worse. I was corresponding with 3 girls. With the info I got from them I searched that is big Russian and Ukraine social site. Here is what I found out. 2 girls married, one has a kid. 3rd girl is in serious relationship with her boyfriend picture on the site. I suggest if you still in anasweb, search her in with google translator. I believe you will find out more things than you want to know

      Girl profile photos:
      just about all of them are being photoshopped. The web team is in Moscow and they are very skilled on photoshop. They can make model out of average girl. In one instance, I met the anasweb girl with interpreter, I could not figure out who is the girl I suppose to see. I got lots of info from an guy who used to work for anasweb later became web developer for me

      Letter and chats:
      99% are done by agencies worker without profile girls knowledge. Once I meet a professional business lady and invite her to my apartment and show her that I have been chatting with her on asasweb. As soon I login asasweb and her impostor invite me to chat and she is shocked to see her profile on anasweb site. She told me that her friend asked her went get professional photo for free, but she never give anyone permission to put her picture on anasweb. And she does not know who she should talk to to remove her profile. As today I believe her profile is still there. Btw, the chatting girl get about $.05 cent per minutes most time

      some restaurants in Odessa are in the game and here is how it works. The girl with her interpreter takes you to an expensive restaurant with a special menu for you end up with a bill up to $300 in my case. Then later the interpreter will come back ask for $200 to split with the girl, interpreter and the agency.

      Scam Girls:
      I believe most of girls start as decent girl but anasweb agencies train and force them to become scammer. Last time my interpreter friend show me a photo of a young beautiful girl and she told me: hey Mark, now she is half decent girl, give her half year working under the agency, she will be the top scammer for the agency.
      In all fair, I can not blame the girls as they are hire to do the dirty work and anasweb and their agencies make the most money. Few years ago, I heard the largest agency boss bought multiple house in Odessa and richer than most people on here.

      her main job is not to interpreter, is to watch the girl. he sure the girl can get the most money out of guy. For ex, make sure order a lots to run up the bill to max the agency share. In one instance, I finally able to ask the girl out without interpreter then found out her English is better than the interpreter. She told me according to agency rule that she has to come put with agency interpreter.

      Here is some interesting information
      I got these few years ago; Anastasiadate owners are living in Odessa. Anastasiadate daily business are run by their office in Moscow. All phone call is handle by their Moscow office and usa based phone answer service company. I never able to talk to any of Anastasiadate usa stuff. 3 years ago, the anastasiadate marketing budge is 40 millions usd
      Also I suggest you to look into the contract when you sign up for anastasiadate. If you look it into carefully, you will find out anastasiadate warrant NOTHING.
      BTW, A interpreter friend ask me once before; everyone in Ukraine knows Anastasiadate is a big scam business based in usa. How can American government allow this company still in business. I have not answer

    5. Merlin

      Hey Paul

      Like you, I am working on a screenplay from my 3 years of being scammed. As well as writing a book. I have a journalist working with me.

      Id really like to speak to you. As I’m a construction worker, I’m not that good at screen plays lol.

      I will explain all when i here from you.

  4. Steve fone

    Yeah. I was told that by an interpreter who works for Anastasia local branch in Odessa when I was there. She’s a good friend now, better than the plank I went to see.
    I remember doing a video chat and thinking at the time, I’m sure she’s not using a keyboard to chat back. Ok there are woman on there that mite be OK, but very rare.
    Have also come across a site called ua dreams, they run the same system as Anastasia /Russian Brides.

  5. dan

    Adate, they might have anti fraud. It is most of the time the local agencies that are contracted by Adate. There are adds all over the place for these agencies in Ukraine. Ukrainian people refer to this as dirty work. Most of the girls have pro shoots done, air brushing and the like. A lot of profile’s will say English known. then men are doped by the translator tag along to make money for them to split later! Right now do to the conflict in Ukraine the clientele of the agencies is very low. Perhaps if a lot of guys look into this before they think about joining to meet the fake girl of their dreams they will be enlightened by this site and not join or waste anymore tokens! If a guy wants to meet Ukraine lady just go their! Mind you, yes they are very pretty. I married a girl with out any site. Apples to oranges I would if I could turn back time not have! Western women, they are better. I have many experience with East women and I think most guys would be better off with Western .women

  6. Steve fone

    Yes. I had that same thing happen to me. All love and kisses when talking on anastasia for three months, cost a fortune. I booked a separate flight and apartment. In Odessa.
    When I got there Tatyana and an interpreter where waiting for me. Lucky for me the apartment owner put on there private taxi for me, but that first night cost me £25 for the interpreter. Tatyana had booked that week off of work, but it turned out her boss wanted to work until just after lunch time ever day. So then. I had to hang around until 4pm every day until Inna the interpreter and Tatyana turned up. We went for dinner even night, but inna would not let me buy her dinner as she had to cook for her family later, but I still had to pay interpretation fees, roughly £35 a night. Ouch. The lady who I was talking to on Anastasia was nothing like the woman I met. Looks Yes. Romantic. No. She would hold hands, hug or even like a kiss on the check. Yet Inna said she liked me very much? I even complained to Anastasia on line while I was there about the fact that this was nothing like the woman I had been talking to on site. It turned out she didn’t like hugs, or holding hands, different than I was told on site. There was no romance in that woman at all, in fact. I got on better with Inna, shame she was married. It was all pay out and not very satisfying for me. One thing I noticed as well. I checked a few times, while Tatyana and I were together. She was still online on Anastasia chatting. I asked Inna about this and she admitted it was another interpreter on the other end. It’s the biggest waist of money and time I have ever had, though Odessa was a nice city. We talked on email after I got back and she admitted a few things about Anastasia which I have written about before. Now. This will make you smile. Just for the he’ll of it. I joined Russian brides. Anastasia’s other site. I don’t pay as I haven’t set an account up, but I do get free letters and guess what. I get one from Tatyana telling me about her self, what see is like and how loving she is. So. I emailed Tatyana to see if she had sent it. No was her answer. It’s the interpreters fishing for customers was her answer. I don’t talk to Tatyana much these days as I told you, the Anastasia lady, was nothing like the lady I met, but she is truthful about Anastasia as is Inna who I am still good friends with. Guys. Save your money. Go out there yourself, there’s plenty of free woman there in bars and clubs to chat to and it won’t cost you a fortune.

    Anastasiadate anti scam Joke.

    I was reading the blog here about their anti scam joke department and remembered something from a year ago. It is about their suggestion to occassionally use a cam to make sure i is her.

    Well, I have on my hit list of disgusting scammers a group of particular ladies who uses anastasiadate and maybe 30 other sites.

    I found a few of them logged in to various sites one day with camera on. I had some credits and turned one cam on, took a screenshot and closed her. I then went to another site and opened a different profile and guess what? The same girl I had the screenshot of, was using another profile (older) on a different site.

    Here was a test for the sites, to see how their customer service would handle it. I will not mention the names of the other sites.

    Site A, where she was clearly commiting a fraud, by using a different profile, they at first denied it. I sent them the photo and they could not clearly make a link. I sent the second photo, where she was using her real profile on another site and finally after 3 emails, they agreed it was her and they booted her.

    Site B, where she was using the correct profile replied. She has committed no fraud on our site and they allowed her to remain.

    Site Anastasiadate did not even bother replying.

    If a girl commits fraud on one site, I believe any reasonable person might form the view she will do it on any site and therefore the sites are failing to act on genuine scammers by the lame excuse, they did not commit the fraud on our site.

    Further, I also believe a reasonable person would conclude that her agency is involved. How else would she get the log in details for another girls account? The agency and every profile they have should be deleted.

      Without commenting on whether the site is a fraud or not I will give facts below

      I have met a certain woman many times in Odessa and we have gone away on holiday together. In fact she is with me now asleep yet according to anastasidate she is online and available on chat. So who are they really speaking to.

      Over a period of time we became close and she told me she didn’t write to me or receive letters. So if you ever meet a woman you have been corresponding with for some time and when yo meet her for the first time she appears cold and not even a kiss from her. This is because this meeting is probably the first time she has hear of you and she certainly doesn’t know anything about you.

      If you do meet a woman on the system correspond by Skype from then on its the only way you can really guarantee you are really speaking to her.

      If you are thinking of joining such a website I suggest it is better to keep your wallet closed – do not buy credits

      1. John

        Hey Joe.

        Did they use excuse #1. She probably forgot to sign out? or #2, her agency is probably checking her mail?

        They have an excuse for everything accept the truth, which is. All the girls get paid in someway to communicate.

        1. Joe

          Hi John

          I never bothered to ask Anastasia date because I knew they would not tell the truth. But not only did I have proof chat is just money making I had previously been told by one of the interpreters working on the site that it was usually supervisors doing the chatting not the girl you think you are corresponding with.

          I am lucky I suppose, I found one of the genuine ones looking for marriage. What she has told me not many are. So you might be lucky but my advise is stay away from these sites.

  9. dan

    Yes, very great choice you made! They say they know English! They actually do! But, they get money for translator and then they split this money! As far as flat goes, never rent form that Adate, it is over inflated rippoff! if you want to meet lady, it is just easy to book flat online and fly there and go tot clubs and shopping areas and such! Chances are the girl worked as lady in dating agency

  10. John


    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.

  11. Gar

    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.

  12. rAF

    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.

    1. John


      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

  13. John

    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.

  14. Jim

    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!

  15. ALBERT

    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 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.

  16. Piotr

    A big thank you buddy. I lost a few hundreds $, but I could lose a few thousand.
    Wake up, gentlemen. This is robbery in broad daylight.
    I greet the gentlemen

  17. John

    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

  18. Chaos

    Thanks for sharing the experience, this is really helpful, authough I just registered on the Anastasiadate site. I will not purchase any credit for it, but it makes me feel good to see so many female to contact me by sending letter, that seems like I am nearly become sombody.

  19. Dan

    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, is a good site! But men and the ladies still should head caution. Best wishes!

  20. Steve fone

    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.

    1. Diana

      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.

      1. Clem

        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 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 ” ” for searches. It gives much better results than “”
        2 Search websites such as , , 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.

  21. Dan

    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. She made good money from your husband. Electronic affection! It is the adate way! Sorry to see how he was caught up in the most terrible dating sites this world has.

    1. Pat

      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.

      1. John

        Hi Pat

        Sorry to read your story.

        The sites are just as much to blame as the agencies and the girls. Site engages agencies and pays agency. Agency finds girls and pays them.

        Girl a chats for 498 minutes and girl b for 9878 minutes, how does the agency know? The sites spilt up the payment summary.

        The site does not pay the girl. That statement makes me choke.

        The sites use many different tools to suck a man in. Automatic chat invitations and mail outs. Some men actually believe that a particular girl viewed his profile and then wrote to him. What a laugh. the agency simply hits the “send intro letter button”

        A girl puts in an inane sentence to her chat and then hits broadcast. It is sent to every man signed in. the girl is drinking tea, writing more letters, basically working.

        The sites are the cause. The sites get the lions share of what a man spends. Agencies get around 15 cents a credit and if the girl is lucky she will get 7 cents a credit.

        Anastasiadate will act if a girl is cheating them, they will drag the chain if you accuse her of cheating you. Several times I reported girls who were dumb enough to try and solicit me to a competition site. These girls were always gone within 24 hours.

        Get the assholes to understand a girl is paid and you are better off hitting a brick against your head. No matter what I provided them, they still came back with the SMUG stick it up ya ass answer, prove the girl is paid.

        I sat in a car while 2 of my friends went to get their pay. I started an agency and paid my girls, some of whom were married.

        Take me to court Anastasiadate, let a judge decide who is right and who is bullshitting. I have the proof guys. I have a working agency. paid girls, fake profiles you name it, I have very easily managed to do it and Anastasiadate is one of the many sites we use.

        I have also emailed them this information, with a view to help them clean up their act. what a waste if mgabytes

  22. Keneth 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 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 a great website. Finally don’t be an idiot guys, you have heard it here.

  23. Aaron Price

    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.

    1. Pat

      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.
