    Yes, this is largely a huge scam

    Believing in hope against hope that if somehow stuck it out, I would eventually meet someone who wasn't a complete scammer, and sorry to report, I never did. I will just give an example of the most recent (and my very last) experience.

    Natalyia wrote seemingly an initial first letter that did not seem like the standard form letter that you get from some of the ladies, sometimes up to 40 times or more. I responded and we seemingly had a very real exchange of letters and chats over the course of several weeks. Then, in the last letter, just after she promised what she would do to me when we finally met in person, out of the blue, she mentioned that we should definitely take it slow. That raised a red flag, because not only can you not get much slower than sending letters and email chatting from over 5000 miles away, but this was frequently the "block" I would get when I would throw out actually calling them to discuss future plans.

    She also though enclosed a photo of a strategically placed tattoo she had on her lower back. Also on the picture was a Russian last name. I googled it and it was that of a very active photographer who specializes in erotic photography (she told me she was a personal trainer). Clicking on his site, I soon found Nataliya and a number of pictures that were on the Anastasia site, and also some link to their version of Facebook, called VK. So I went on her site, found her last name, and looked at many of her 500 selfies, but several of which also featured her muscle-bound boyfriend who looked like he had an IQ under 80 with his backward camouflage ball cap on.

    Just to give her the slightest benefit of the doubt, since maybe he was an ex-boyfriend, I created a separate Anastasia account using a gift card (which I would highly suggest to check the fidelity and loyalty of the woman at the other end who has pledged her undying whatever to you). I went in as "John" and simply wrote her, "I like your pics and bio. Do you currently have anybody here on the site or in real life who you have feelings for, because if I'm going to try to win your heart, I want to know that you are completely available?" Her response, as expected was of course, that she was completely free and looking, and then went into some detail about how she wanted to handcuff me and "lick every cell of my body." I didn't even get that kind of response in my real profile from her.

    So, clearly, even though this seemed to be just about the most serious one I've encountered on Anastasia after being on and off for over 5 years, she was just as full of crap and would clearly say anything to anybody to keep that 12 cents a minute coming in, or whatever they pay them for letters. Apparently, it's almost a cottage industry in some depressed Ukrainian towns.

    Do not do like I do and waste a cent on this site. There are others that are reputable and you pay for their actual contact once, not on and on and on just to maintain contact with your imaginary Slavic girlfriend.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Scam site!

    If you use this scam site you'll discover the only way to get a lady's contact info is through $100 calls or $1000 gifts, and like others attest, it's worthless; they'll try to scam you back to the site to talk, or much worse.

    No matter how desperate you are, never ever waste a cent on this pathetic scam site.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    It's a legal scam

    I've met a number of women from the site and had to do an exhaustive amount of research online (and in person) to get some clear answers on the dynamic of using this site.

    The big problem:

    The company employs "agencies" who are tasked solely with getting good looking women to agree to post their profiles on the site. In return for generating active profiles that get men chatting, there is a compensation system paid to the agency, and most often to the women as well. I will repeat, there is a real and active compensation system for the female members of this site to maintain a dialog with other members. Many, if not all, have access to the compensation model...so yes, these women get monetary incentive to talk to you. No joke, I've met half a dozen women that supplement their income through this site.

    2. There are real women there. Lots of them, most of them are real, BUT this site sets their expectations high, AND there is no confusion for them regarding what you're paying. They are coached to think that this arrangement is completely proper and that the man should have to pay out the ears to get face time with her.

    3. Moreover, some of the "agencies" mentioned above (and likely the AnastasiaDate organization itself) maintain a standing body people who maintain chats in place of the people actually depicted in the profile. I have actually seen the interface for it; it's real. I know women who literally make their living on this site, and business is GOOD.

    4. If you plan to actually meet a woman, there is no method of doing so without spending at least $500. with AnastasiaDate. The funny thing is, they try to say it's for our protection and they cite IMBRA to get technical, but the reality is that their entire user experience is geared to make you pay as much as possible for as long as possible without actually doing anything to promote the relationship.

    All the positive interactions I have had with the site required literally half a dozen arguments with their customer service over lost mail, lost presents, delays, deliberately delayed emails (one email with contact details was delayed for over six weeks even though both parties authorized it in writing). This list of craziness goes on.

    More importantly, the site is a known segue for some pretty serious scams in person. I've spoken with men that have been robbed by teams, scammed by the date, or have and to pay triple the normal price for translation services, etc.

    The bottom line is, this organization is not interested in putting people together, it is only interested in making money, and it is so successful that it has its own sub-industries geared to make even more money from those who manage to meet the ladies.

    I don't regret meeting the women in the least, but man...it is NOT worth the money spent. There are MUCH better online experiences than any of the AnastasiaDate sites. Do your research.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Complete scam

    I had been inscribed in AnastasiaDate for quite some time and thought that I would be lucky enough to find a woman to love and create a family with her. Unfortunately, the site's a complete scam.

    Apart from thousands of dollars I spent on communicating with women (if it was really women I communicated with), I had sent my real email address together with flowers to several women. Of course, paid services.

    Several asked for money. They pretended to be sick, have computer problems...

    Some of them did not even write.

    Some of them wrote one or two letters and never again.

    There are even hookers on the site. Two from Kiev told me that I could do them for free the first time, but that I'd have to pay after.

    On some video conversation, I was sure that it was a prerecorded video since the same movements of the lady started the same way over and over again.

    In the end, I wasted a lot of money for nothing.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Gorgeous and real women

    If you are looking for a Russian woman (or eastern European) AnastasiaDate, Ukrainian Ladies, or Dream Singles are not your option. This is my experience with these sites.

    AnastasiaDate: Imagine walking to a bar full of models and every single one of them wants you to talk to them and they find you attractive. Of course, it's every man's dream, dream, dream, and dream, as long as you keep buying drinks for them. Kinda like a strip club, the dancer would be sitting with you as long as she has a drink on her hand - no drink, no love period. This site was my first experience, after a few days and hundreds of letters received I noticed they were scripts (or introduction letters), so I changed my strategy, I put down my real name in my description and waited until I had a letter from a girl calling me by my name as I requested on my profile. Sadly this didn't happen. So I closed my profile.

    Ukrainian Ladies: After my first experience, I repeated the same strategy - hide my info on my description and waited for a letter from a girl calling me by name. After a few days, surprise, I got a few letter that seemed they actually took a minute to read my profile and write me a few lines. So I bought my first bundle of credits, I quickly realized that I had to be smarter or I would end up with a huge balance on my credit card, so I had to pick just one girl. So I exchanged letters with her for a few weeks until I had the option to request for her personal contact info. I got her email only, so I emailed her and never got a response. I went back to the website and I emailed her there. Of course, within hours she replied. I asked her why she didn't answer my email, and her answer was, "I have no internet at home, I have to use the agency computer and I can only use this website." SHOCKING. I got a reduced price per letter so it wasn't expensive, but come on, who want to email a girl you like only, you don't really get to know someone by letter (taking aside I was uncomfortable exchanging letters through a website that read whatever you write).

    So I loved one and found another girl, same story. When it came to having her info I only got her email, one that she only replied once, explaining that her English was bad, even though on her profile she said she had an intermediate level and she could read and write.

    Time for the next one. I had to be smarter this time. I would only talk to a girl with a profile that said she could speak English, Spanish or Portuguese (I speak these three languages), so I found another girl. After a couple of letters I scheduled a video call to make sure she was able to have a conversation, she did great, beautiful girl and great conversation skills. We exchanged letters on the website (like five or six), one video call, so I asked her if it was ok for me to request for her contact info, and she agreed. I emailed her as soon as I got it and in her email she replied, "I prefer to use the website, I feel more comfortable." Shocking.

    So I realized these girls just want me to spend money on the website. Don't even try to talk to customer service; they washed their hand by saying it's not their responsibility if the ladies didn't want to talk outside the website. How was this possible? They literally were telling me I was the man of their dreams. Immediately after, I requested to cancel my account and to get reimbursed for the money invade left something that was denied.

    Dream Singles: I was just creating my profile, and I already had like 10 letters, and by the time I finished I had 100, and when it came back to check two days later I had like 400. Needless to say, I did not put any information whatsoever on my profile, so I didn't even start.

    Lucky to me, I met a Russian lady in Canada. I told her about my online experience, and she laughed. She said Russian women are indeed interested in men from abroad, but they are not desperate, and access to internet it's not as hard as the girls on the website. When we broke up, I went to Kiev. I tried to meet girls old school, it's hard, good luck finding one that speaks English, and the average girl is really hot, but doesn't mean she will say yes.

    I ended up meeting a few girls, but nothing happened. I married a girl from Ukraine, but I met her in Canada. So my advice for you would be, if you want to try online dating, avoid these websites. Find one that has a subscription fee and lets you open as many letters as you want at no extra cost, exchange email or contact info at no extra cost. And trust me, on these websites you won't find as many model type girls, but they are pretty, and of course, you will have hundreds of letters a day. Save your hard-earned dollars and be smart. I hope I help someone from getting ripped off.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
