If you are young, handsome and rich you may have a chance. If you are middle aged, average looking with an average income there is a good chance you are being scammed.
There is a good test for the scam. Call the lady by phone and ask to exchange emails. A phone call is the cheapest method to contact her. Make certain you get her email first. Tell her you want to meet only on Skype or some other free web site. If she hesitates or tells you she wants to stay with the Anastasia dating site there is a good chance she is making money from you. I had a translator tell me that she quit one of the agencies because the younger women were trying to get gifts from older men. I had a detective tell me it is called the "dirty business" in Ukraine. Be realistic, how many beautiful 20 year old women are calling you?

I joined the site a little over two years ago. I have enjoyed being on the site very much and even traveled to the Ukraine to meet several of the girls. I have been planning another trip so I think there a many positive things to say about the site and the women.

However, this is my complaint. During the past three months, the site has been hacked and their are men's faces photo shopped on women's bodies. There are not just a few but hundreds of profiles corrupted. I called the site to place a complaint and I am told that this is impossible. I even gave them several example profiles and they insisted that the were real people. These fake profiles will send you mail, message you and make fun of your profile. If the company was committed to do something about this, I would not be concerned. However, they really don't care. Hate to see such a great site go down hill. Save your money until this is fixed.

Anastasiadate is a total scam. I know all details how they operate..: I get at lot of chat invitations from eager woman, even though my profile is empty, with no informations. Most of their profiles are stolen or bought model photos. Or they pay the women to chat with men, just to steal more money from stupid men. I know this for a fact, because many of the women have told me. I have direct contact with some of the women on VK. Many of the women are already married or have boyfriends or are top models, who would never go on dating sites. This is a total 10 million dollar scam. They do not want the men to get direct contact, their complicated rules are not there to protect anyone, only to steal more money from the men....

UPDATE: 3/27/16

Okay. I got some updates as it's pretty funny.

I took one of the pictures from the lady I chatted for a long time and did a Google Image search and found her profile on VK. (Russian social site). I created a profile matching my AnastasiaDate profile and added her as a friend and messaged her. Next day she read my message and replied saying how she's surprised on how I found her here and wanted to know how I did it. She said she prefers chatting half n'half on here and on the dating site. I said to her that I shut down my account on the dating site (not possible anyways) as I'm serious about her and I thought we could continue chatting on VK and finding her already shows how serious I am that I had to go through a lot. Fair enough she accepted it. I wanted to see how far she goes.

Since I used PayPal, it was easy to go on PayPal and revoke the recurring charges that I didn't authorize for $9.99 monthly fee. I went ahead and removed my profile pictures, updated my name to Castro from Havana, Cuba. So now I'm a 91 year old man with three grown children to have their own children. I had 18 credits left and I decided to spend it all but with some style. (I'm not being cheap here after all as I just wanna use my all my credits).

I decided to chat with the same girl I chatted with on VK but with a day gap to get my profile updated in their system. I started getting eMails in relation to Castro and than I knew my profile was updated. I logged online and I saw her. She didn't recognize me but she said she's been waiting for someone like me to come into her life. I'm like.. Really? A 91 year old man with 3 kids to hook up with a 29 year old 'model'? It shows that they're not serious at all. At the end of the day it's just your wallet they're after. I went back to VK today and we chatted for a bit. She 'hinted' that she needs money to hire a tutor and learn some English. I ignored her and said if she really wants to learn, she can go and download some English material off the Internet and learn them. I left and left the conversation as it is. She's not interested or serious. She has her own life in Ukraine and she's not bothered to come and join you.

Next girl: I did the same as above and I got her to get on Skype. She gets so defensive if I tell her that I think 'some' women gets paid to be on that site. I didn't mention her but I said 'some'. She goes off at me saying I think it's her. I asked her why she gets so defensive? And then long story comes in about how some man was suppose to come from the UK to meet her and never did and now she can't trust any men. And only those men who're on this site can be serious! HA! She avoided my question. She than said I was better chatting with her on the site! I told her what's the difference? Her English was good as she was a reporter as she claims. Fast forward today. She said she's going to see her family 3 hours away and spend time with them for the whole weekend and she won't be able to get on Skype. I always wonder if she goes to work as she's always on the site chatting. She said she won't be on Skype as she won't have internet connection since she'll be on the farm!!!. (I'm already Castro here by the way on that site). I logged online today and went to her profile page and I see her as 'Online' with video capability. Yep. Sure. Skype shows she's off. I get a message later on saying that she wants to connect with me. Connect with a 91 year old man with three grown children to have their own children? The same girl tells me on Skype that she prefers someone at my age group and never married and no kids. She even said to me on Skype as to why I think all women here wants to leave their home country? I wasn't surprised after all they get good money from the dating agency to pay their bills and internet connection and so forth.

SCAM! These girls gets paid for you chatting with them. Their interpreter gets paid too. Those guys writing fake reviews get paid too. Not a question about me being a 'cheapskate' or anything. I've joined some free dating site already (two days back) and I'm already chatting with 4 of them on Skype and WhatsApp combined. 2 of them already began using two-way video calls and internet phone calls with me. All free. I've had only one who wanted money for some live webcam shows but I didn't give in. You're gonna get that everywhere.


So I've started not too long ago in search of a woman. Yep, I landed on this site. Wow, nicely photoshopped women here (I've have worked on models before so I know what to look for). This site - AnastasiaDate is definitely a scam. Forget the videos. They're all in for business. I've spoken to one of them and I asked her if she could wave at me or signal a kiss but instead she looked down and typed in some excuse as to why she can't. Really?? So I attached my email address to a picture and sent a attachment to a different girl. I told her that my details are on that picture and let me know. Next thing you know she suddenly had an emergency and had to leave. Never came back. I've had one where she holds up a vibrator and tells me what she's gonna do with it. I said I wasn't interested. Just trying to waste your time with a slow response as well to keep the minutes going. They know when you're looking at their profile and they'll prowl at you.

Finally, look at all of the latest reviews that are rated 5 stars. Notice the date stamp on it. How come all these guys decided to write reviews the same time or one day apart. That shows that they have either hired someone to write fake reviews or they're writing themselves. I'm a business owner and I see this happen at Yelp too talking to others at a conference.

Save your money and do what other say - travel there. I've been to Europe and the women are intrigued to hear that you're not from there and naturally strike up a conversation. I'm keeping in touch with 2 already. If you go through AnastasiaDate, the translator will rip you off on expensive hiked up restaurants, hotels, and taxis just to take a share of your money. Do an AirBnb and stay with beautiful women for a start and save there.

Alright, remember guys, we're looking out for each other here so there is no gain from me telling you this.

I just want to say that after being a member for +10 years on and off, yes I even know their services better than their own employees who cant even agree if it is a dating agency or a social network. I simply cannot recommend anastasiadate to anyone, but rather warn everybody to stay away, save your money and run.
Unserious, unprofessional and a money machine with the only purpose of making you spend money, where it now a days are like winning in the lottery if a girl actual show up on a date.!

All in all i cannot recommend anastasiadate and my very best advice to you is to stay far away.

I started using anastasiadate the very first time in 2006.
Since then i meet +15 girls i think, who all have the same in common that they where the worldst most beautifull girls with good educations.
On all of my dates it have been impossible to be together with a girl alone, yes not even possible to go for a walk together or go to the cinema together without the translator having to be there even though the girl spoke english.
I wasent even able to be alone with my "fiance" that by the way just abused me for money.
And now that i look back on my dates then i admit i have been stupid to accept that the translator always had to be there and i always had to pay money to spend time with a girl.

Actual i wrote this review several years ago and it have been read more than 300.000 times i think... but i like to update my review since I used anastasiadate a few days ago when i was in ukraine again after not using anastasiadate for years.
I did before my trip get to know two girls, a laywer and a girl who study administration.
Both said to me before i travel and before i buy my trip that they would be happy to meet me on a date and one even said she would like to be my tour guide and so on. Since i had confirmation someone would meet me when i travel, then i bought the ticket and went to kiev for 14 days so i had plenty of time to date and get to know the girls. by the way i only look for 1 girl, but as you all know that two people do not always fall in love and also sometimes people do not show up so i thought 2 girls then my chance is higher to meet someone and fall in love.
Anyway i called the girls using anastasias terrible telephone service where there alwasy are noice on the line, and one girl i only speak to for 1 minute els she was disonnected or i was disconnected. So i asked translator to give them my information after the telehpone call.
Anyway when i arrive in kiev i did not hear anything for 5 days, so i wrote to anastasiadate and asked them to send my information to the girls agency.. Then i got 1 sms from each girl the day after that said they where working and busy bla. bla. since it was monday. During the rest of my stay i hear nothing, even though both girls knew i was in kiev, nobody took initative to anything.
The long story short... I think it is a total lack of respect to treat a person with so little respect when a person travel example 2000-5000km to come meet and then people cannot walk out the door to meet the person, and not caring just a little bit, or being excited to go on a date. !
I wrote to support that I found this very wrong, and suggested they send the girls a bill to cover my travel expenses of about 780usd for hotel, plane, transport ect. to teach them a lesson, and also i would like to have my money refunded for the telephone call and e-mails to my VISA and not to my anastasia account.
To be honest i did not read the support reply yet, or the two letters from one of the girls that was send 2 days before i go home, and while i was in the airport.
They could just have sms me or used viber/watsapp they had the information.
But my story is actual NOT a single time this happen to me.
Actual my last 3-4 trips to ukraine the last 3 years it happen rather often that girls do not show up on a date.. here we are talking 3-4 different dating websites and there is always the excact same patern no matter what website you use.

The girls love to "chat, chat and chat ", they are okay with letters. They all like to corrospond with you, and they all like to go on a date with you before you arrive.
BUT about 5-1 day before you arrive, some will cancel, get sick, break their leg, have to go on business trip.. And though who do not say anything, will often not show up on a date or be impossible to contact one you are in ukraine.
It dosent matter it is Anastasiadate or any other ukraine dating website, its the same story and experience.
Overprised and almost everything cost money with tons of fake chat popup and fake introduction letters, and atempts to make you click on something that cost money all the time.

TIP..: Try to search on google using these ukraine words.
( ukraine marriage model kiev )
and you will find local dating marriage agencys that are looking for young, models to work in the marriage website.. they can even work from home and get paid xxx
per month.. well let me put it this way, you feel lucky.. ?
Truth is for many especiall young students they get paid a little money for lending their photos to their local agencys, and then they get paid money for that.. Some get paid pr. letter, and pr chat minute.. especially chat pay more than letters.
And going on dates, well they just have to show up now and then spend a few houres and then its back to normal where some girls do not even write their own letters but just get a review of the corrospondance before going on a date by their translator/agency. I know this since i know people who worked in such agencys, both translators and girls told me how it work. There are also many vidoes on youtube where you can see this for your self by the way.
But try and search on google for this "
шлюб модель kiev робота

Then you get a result like this, with a long list of jobs and payment for the above job

Some jobs are ordinary model jobs, but some jobs you can easy see the marriage angency look for girls.
It is commonly known in ukraine that girls work in marriage agencys, you see ads in newspapers and so on or people standing near discos or outside universitys to offer such jobs to girls.
TIP..: if you copy paste the above link into google translate and press translate to english then the webpage is automatic translated into english and you can read it.

Sometimes i even have corrosponded with example 4 girls on two different websites, and if i invite 4 girls on a date during a 14 day period, maybe 1 show up and are intersted, even though our corrospondance have been amazing.
If the girl show up, you will NEVER be able to be alone with her, for a walk or going to the ciname ect.
And you will pretty much always get a "backup" telephone number and not her real number or e-mail.. Its like everything always have to go though her local dating website so someone can earn money!.
It is also quite common if someone actual ( rare ) speak to you outside of the website, that they loose your information so you have to buy it again to earn money. ( some website it cost 100usd to get a girls address ).
Actual i recommend before you travel to ukraine, to try and send some "cheap" flowers to the address the girl give you.. Almost always you will hear the flower delivery contact you saying that they cannot find the address, or even they dont know anyone on that address with that name.
I say this so you can make the dating website contact the girl and update her info.
( dont go to the address you are given as a turist, it is difficult to find and you dont want to go these places in a forign city where you cannot talk to anyone or maybe have difficulty getting a taxi... I do by the way recommend to use UBER in ukraine it is the most easy to use as a turist ).

To return to anastasiadates anti scam protection is a joke, often the agency do not take reports or warnings serious. Actual the agency is not even close to being a premium website and havent been a good place since roughtly 2008-2010 or have any real serious anti scam protection...
Back in the day anastasiadate was fantastic.. There where 0 chat popups just letters.
You could just ravel to ukraine and invite a girl on a date with 3 days warning and the girls where happy to show up. ( to earn money i guess )
You could go on dating partys in odessa ( i was there 1 time ) but i suspect they pay the girls to show up, and at the end of the party there even was a money competition where girls who stay until the end could win money.
( i told anastasiadate about this and since then there have been 0 partys ).
but it was a nice event with like 300girls and 20 men i guess.. I spoke for 5-7 houres with allot of girls and got telephone numbers and profile id's and i was on 3 dates with 3 girls.. after returning home i corrosponded with them but after some time i found out they where not the girl i was looking for.
But a nice positive impression from the date, i talk and meet other girls than the "top model" girls and notised allot of the more ordinary girls more who did not have super photos.. That was for me the most positive about the party.

Regarding antiscam and corrospondance, Yes the girls cannot ask you for money and they will check such minor things.. But they NEVER do any background checks on people on social networks to check if girls are in relationships or their letters actual fit their life style.
Many girls are two different people and living a double life. On anastasiadate they are the perfect girl and wife, on their social network profile they are very different and have other oppinions than in their letters. This should make you wonder !
I have even been corrosponding with a girl who where dating a ukraine man for 1 year and became engaged and even married... I did my self have to provide their vacation photos and photos of her ring and priovide all evidense to have her removed, ect.
however it is only the only time during 10 years I ever got a refund for anything, however I was not allowed to withdraw but only spend the money on the website. ;-(

I have also many times found members on or other websites where I could see they where in a relationship but single on even when asked.
Anastasiadate did not care at all and girls never got removed.
A model looking girls is BIG BUSINESS, and some get so much mail that they earn like 50.000usd a month just becourse she is on the website.
Again i wonder how a girl can reply the hundreds yes maybe even thousands of letters she get every day from men from all over the world.!
Some top model girls are on more than +50 websites.. lets imagine she get 10 letters on every website and reply all of the letters..... how is that possible ?

You also need to know that it is rare any girl want to talk to you outside of the website, so if you think you send a girl like 10 letters on the dating site, and then find her social network profile on example facebook and want to say hello, then she will NEVER talk to you on the social network. Even after 50 letters she is not intersted in you. !
I think you should wonder how serious she really is if she will not want to be friends with you or talk to you outside of the website.

You also need to be aware that Anastasiadate is like a Casino... House takes all.
Meaning that if you put money in your account, then they will NEVER allow you to withdraw them to your bank account again. Once there is money in the account you have to spend them.. And after 1 year if you did not use your money then they will expire..
You really want to be a member somewhere like that, then you are crazy.. Nobody put money in a bank if they cannot get their money out again.!!!!
By the way you pay in USD but you will find out your money goes to the tax heaven of syprus and you pay in euro without even being told about it.
I can see this on my bank statement when i buy credits for a larger amount.

Els I been scammed several times but no help by the agency at all, and i even hear storys from a girl that she was with an american man who wanted to have anal sex with her.. She did not want this so she was beaten and put naked outside the door in the hotel and the staff of hotel had to help her..
Anastasiadate did nothing, and as far as the story goes the man could just stay on the website and meet other girls.
in 2015 it have become very difficult to meet anyone from the website, they always lie and the girls are never able to preplan anything or let you know when you can come and visit her on a date or two. I typical just tell the girls that I will come in 1-2 month from now and then I invite 3-4 girls on a date and then I maybe meet 0-1 from anastasiadate, and meet a girl or two from however I do also not recommend using dream-marriage / dream-singels there are tons of bad girls there and they charge 30-40usd pr translator hour!!!!!!!... the conversation just keep going on and on and on. You will also never be able to be alone with a girl, the translator will always be there, even if you are a realationship. The girl also pretty much never want to corrospond or stay in contact outside of the agency... in general the agency have allot of trouble and many girls get paid under the table by their local agencys.. The girls often are just here to earn a little money and especially have an interest in chatting and will ask you to chat..Also now a days you get 30-40 fake letters every day, some girls send you a new letter every day ( introduction letters ) and you get 360 chat requests pr hour... they are also fake. Actual it work in such a way that when a girl is online then a computer script automatic select the girl and give her a premade chat text. Then a random amount of chat request/popup are send to all men online making it look like the girl want to chat with you. The same goes with the 30-40 introduction letters you get everyday.
Actual sometimes you will see the same chat request message written by more than one girl. You can even see chat request when you are not logged in sometimes dooh.
Actual you cant even see when someone you corrospond with actual choose to chat with you on her own, the girl so to speak just down in the flood of spam chat request. All in all I meet more than 15 girls and been engaged with a scammer 1 time... I dated girls who where engaged, and I cant even count how many girls who have been unserious and not really wanted to meet me but just wanted to talk for "fun"/ money. Some even been on the site for years without meeting any men and agency never remove them. In general stay away you are wasting your time/life and money.. Agency have become a money machin and especially since 2008 it have been going down the drain every year, and now a days they even force you to pay a membership fee to use overprised services such as chat, yes you cant even refill your account anymore without being forced to pay the membership fee for pretty much nothing...... all in all terrible stay away, times are hard in ukraine/russia to many girls who just date you for money and never have real intentions... go somewhere els. Oh i forgot to say the agency send the money you pay them into a tax heaven in sypress. Your bonus points you earn cant be used for anything.. I had 1400 i think .. If you wonder if the girls are real then yes... But they are mostly not serious at all, but just there to earn money under the table.. It is one big lie and chances you fall madly in love are virtual non excisting and the girls will properbly never marry and move to your country. Last year roughly 6000 men visited odessa and only 4-6 got married... you feel lucky ? one last think the VIP badge is worthless, no special service or respect for loyal memebers.... all in all stay away save your money... it is almost one big scam...

My best advice go to a dating party instead.. You will instand know if you like someone and then you can exchange contact information.
Best time to meet someone are after writing letters for 3 month, after that letters will just be what did you do today jada jada.. Dating is about people, not to read about them... ;-)

I wrote more than 850 letters to girls, and got 99% response to all letters send. I think this is extremly unrealistic, and people should wonder why pretty much everybody I ever spoke to ALWAYS reply my letter. I am no super model and 37 years old.
I once made a little science experience on a Danish website with much fewer members than anastasiadate. I lend a photo of a pretty girl i knew and made a dating profile. In 24 houres I got more than 100letters everyday and after 1 week i delete the profile.
Well what I want to say is, on anastasiadate there are millions of men and especially the most beautifull girls get allot more than 100 letters every day.. I think you should wonder how she are able to talk to so many people... Many girls corrospond with more than 20-30 men and they still can cope with remembering things ect.... Personaly I cannot write with more than 5 girls at the same time and send them 1-2 letters every week whitout my brain breaking down... You should wonder who write the girls letters
Oh an try to notise why a girl can sit online all night, even though she have to work and study ect ect... aint that strange?

Ps. Are the girls real.. Yes and they almost always look like on their photos..

pps. I will be happy to give interviews to large newspapers/radio/tv about the "sick" dating industry.

PPS.. I think the dating websites should be investigated by the police in an joint efford.. They are on purpose cheting people from all over the world.

Tip for consumers: After being 10 years on the website on and off and being extremly experience and knowing the industry.. Then I would recommend you to stay away save your money.

Not sure what you people are drinking, but pass it over.

Here are the facts.
I could list 10 site off the top of my head, where you will find these same girls. Here is the catch...

They will not use the same name as listed on this site. Each site contains a name, maybe similar, but not the girls real name.

I will prefix this review with this... Last year I joined a site, not this site but another like this one, after not finding a good woman here in the US.

I spoke with the lady for 7 months, before traveling to Kyiv to meet her. Now there were many phone calls, so I knew, "what she sounded like" and how well she spoke English. I am a very detail oriented person from years in a certain field. We were taught to notice little changes, words, phrases and a few other details most people never notice or pay attention too.

She came to the date with a translator. I agreed to this. She did speak, but said she was having trouble remembering English after meeting me... hmm I let it play out, made little comments only she would know from the phone conversations. Not one hint of understanding. By the end, I knew this was not the girl, whom I had been communicating with. She was the girl from the pictures on the site, but no who, I was communicating with. I knew something was not right here, so my training kicked in and hard. Red flags went up all over the place.

I started digging and I dug very deep. The things I discovered shocked the heck out of me. Remember detail oriented, so I took notes and pictures and gathered information. During my looking, I found her profile here on this site and 7 other sites. I similar names, but different. I sent messages to see, if "she" would get it was me. Not one respond letter acknowledged she knew me...hmm again. Looked at the translator and found she too is on all these sites. But she was the translator and did not know this girl before the meeting... hmmm BS, I have the pictures from many months back of them together.

Had just completed a book and it was sitting at the publisher waiting to be released. But all of this gave me an idea for a new book.

Charmdate caught on to me first and what I was doing. Every wonder why these sites do not want you creating 2 accounts. Just think about that and I will get there. Note to all... The main site records your ip, mac address and type computer and OS. They know who you are and where you are located.

The outline started for the new book, then heavy research. I signed up on many of these sites, even traveled back to Ukraine 4 times doing research and gathering information. I played the game and took out somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 lady's. Ages ranged from 22 to 44. I took notes about everything and I felt like I was listening to a broken record. Do not get me wrong, they were are very nice and polite. Why not, they are suckering you for USD.

I have dug deep into this Pandora's box. Anyone that goes to these site in wasting money and you are a fool. The positive reviews are false, because this is all a lie to take your money.

Explain of one girl:
ID: 1799669 Veronica
ID:C583450 Veronika
ID: 1000893600 Nika

Now, has a DB (database) linked to 6 other sites, displaying the same girl. The girl I listed here, does not look like the pictures on this site. I have seen her in person and have my own pictures of her. I could list more and more girls, but needed a good example. Look at the occupation on each site. This will be your first hint at the lie.

My last trip to Ukraine, I met a lady/girl who worked for at the local agency level. She told me it paid good, but she was loosing her soul from all the lies she was having to tell. She told me many things about this site and a few others. Everything is run by the local agencies, that force the girls to ask for gifts, flower and so on. This is all just money for the local agency/main site and a good living for the girls.

Now back to the not wanting a man to have 2 accounts. Good thing about having 2 homes, multiple laptops, different credit cards with different names on them, in different parts of the US. I was able to create additional accounts.

Surprise, I was getting letters from the same girls. I even chatted with them and heard the same lies over and over. I did tell a few my other name on the site. I never heard from these girls again on either account. I had exposed the lie and fraud. I even got a nice letter from one site Lawyers. I told them for go screwed themselves and welcome to the Internet. For those that do not know, it is a public domain and anything out there is free game. You would be surprised how fast people change directions when confronted in person :)

I do not think the industry took into consideration I speak Russian (never let on to the lady's) my job function or I would wanted to write a book and dig. They count on most men to get pissed of and go away. They never anticipated someone who speaks Russian, would travel to Ukraine many many times and dig for the truth.

If you want to meet a real Eastern European woman, pack your bags and go to whatever country. Get out in the city and you will be surprise, truly surprise when you meet someone real and not photoshopped out the butt. My third trip, I did meet a lady, while I was standing in line at Mcdonalds Cafe. Just a simple conversation, but I have met a true Ukrainian (Slavic) woman. With her now in Ukraine and loving life.

Stop feeding this monkey, this will get you no where at all. A lie is a lie and it is being exposed.

Last thing and I will let the false Positive post continue with the lies. I did drop in on a few local agencies in Ukraine. Took some very good picture of the girls sitting around the room with multiple laptops in front of them. Do not be too shocked, but in these same pictures there are men chatting and answering letters. So, you think it is a girl typing to you HAHA!!! I could post the Ads from Ukraine about marriage agencies hiring men or woman to translate, answer foreign mens letters, but the smart men here will get my point here.

Cheers from Kyiv 2:45am local time.

From Kyiv 5:32pm

I have received many messages asking questions about this site and many like it out there.
Are all the women fake?
Is this girl a scammer?

1 out of 100 women, might be honest and truly looking for someone. But you could spend thousands of dollars looking for this 1 woman on these sites. Or you could spend those thousands, buy a plane ticket, rent an apartment and just come here.

A woman who honestly is interested in you, will be open. She will tell you all about her life, her family, her job, pets, friends and so on. She will want to know about you. You will know she is interested, just by her communications with you. Pay attention to the words used and understand everything is being translated and audited in each direction by the agencies.

Something as simple as, "how are you". To western culture this is a simple question with a simple response. But to Slavic people this means something completely different, so she will not just ask you this question. She will be more direct and specific with her questions.

These woman are not looking for you to come and save them from a "poor life". They love their country, their families and friends. This is a way for them to make money, a job.

There are non-PPL sites out there. These site let the 2 people determine how they wish to communicate after the introduction. Image the 2 of you being about to exchange your Skype/Viber/personal email address information. Image you can just ask her and get it without having to spend X-amount of dollars, with no guaranty of getting anything, but you can guaranty you will loose your money.

I know the girls on these site look like a Barbie Doll. But to be honest, any woman can be made to look amazing using photoshop. Just think, be smart and stop thinking with your little head.

Pack your bags and come here and meet the real women here.

AnastasiaDate runs at least ten other websites as well. I signed up for free on and now after ten days, they have also signed me up on AfricaBeauties, AsianBeuties and the list goes on.

And they don't answer any of their emails.

I've never written a review before but feel obligated to post this. Even the guys writing 5 star reviews are Fake. The girls have no interest in meeting anyone. The girls get paid to keep you online and chat with you. It was funny When I closed my account to see all the same girls on line from 6 months ago still there. Goto Russiancupid if you want real girls for next to no cost. I had great luck there but was also on LatinCupid and found a amazing woman in S America.
On Antasia the girls want to keep u online and run up your tab. Cupid the girls want you off lthe website so you don't message other woman.
Do not pay attention to the 5 star posts. Has to be employees of the site.

A woman on Anastasia "wrote" to me.

I found her on another website and thanked her for her recent letter via Anastasia.

She informed me that she hadnt been on that site for 3+ months and that there was NO way that she could have written to me, and that she was in a relationship now and so was not interested in me....I will leave the rest to you imagination ;)

This is NOT the first time that this has happened...

Hi Gregory,

Thanks for contacting me, but I stand by my comments.I don't need to be identified on your site

The women who I have found on your site, I contacted independently.

They have informed me, on a NUMBER of occasions, that :-
1) That did not contact me
2) That they had not been on your site for " a number of months..."

I was also in contact with one of your translators via a different web site who also advised me that your site was a scam, that she and other translators had to reply to men who contacted women(WITHOUT the women's knowledge) who didn't speak English. The translators had to "make up" letters to get men to write to them so they had ot buy expensive credits...and that some of the translators didnt get paid even thought assurances had been made!!

Maybe your company should be a bit more open/honest and ethical? After all you are playing with the emotions of lonely people!!



I havent been on for a while.

Suddenly I started to get many messages.

I asked Customer Services if my account was "live" and was advised that it was NOT.

I enquired how women could contact me if they couldnt see my profile and I was fobbed off with " they may have saved it"..

I've been there several times, met them, understood the pattern ... Speak some Russian, have friends in Odessa.
You need to know that even here are people, paid by Anastasia to try to fool you once more.
In short. Girls are paid - to come to the agency with their profiles and to speak to you. These girls usually dont work, they live from your money. Usually these girls dont speak English at all. So, most of the talks are made by the people who speak English. Yes, you are right, in many cases you speak with males. And then earninings are splitted between girls and people who "do the talking for them". It is not difficult to calculate. Nowadays in UA 200 USD dollars is rather good monthly income. Probably you experienced the constant wish from these girls - they always want something from you. To buy something for them, to help them out, or to help their relatives out. In short. One "pimp" has 5 - 10 girls. He/she is their translator, speaker, teacher, ... If each girl have 5 good sponsors (lets say 300 USD monthly). Now calculate. 10 girls, 5 sponsors, 300 $/m = 15.000 $/m. Quite a sum, isnt it? You need to add your visits there. Good food, trips, designer clothes, ... Good life, for UA circumstances even perfect.
So, here is my suggestion. When you will chat with them, ask them for their profile on VK (Russian facebook). If they will say that they dont have the profile there, you will know that the profile on Anastasia is fraud (each girl/woman has profile on VK). (Open your profile there, it works also in English). If they will not want to give the address, easily go there and check it. For example. Yuliya, Kiev, 25 years. Take your time and check it.
Anstasiadate is 100% fraud. I have spent two years and a lot of money. It is all confirmed. Also a lot of people told me a lot of inside stories (i could write here about it one month). My advice - check it and go away from it. It is proven. There is better chance that you will die in plane crash, travelling to UA than actually find your love there.

Been member in this site long time.

Anastasiadate is the worst scam on the face of Internet.

All girls or most getting paid talking to Western men for letters and chat.

And most girls have boyfriends or is married or in love seen on social media, by others who reported it.

All services in this scam site that Western men pay for goes to girls saleries and to the scam site Anastasiadate.

Stay away save your money and heart, nothing real and serious will never come from this scam site.

Anastasiadate is much worse then the other date scam sites out there, also watch out for all their sister sites same type of date website scam with scam pro date girls earning money, its only a job for them to scam you...

heard a lot of bad things from locals and taxi drivers how their family members are on th site and making a living out of it by creating profile and working on a hourly basis day and night
read a lot of negative reviews but it still looked appealing because of my blinded heart looking for i am writing what others have wrote before to stay away from THIS HUGE NETWORK
people need jobs and money to pay for their lifestyle and i am still shocked to realise how ruthless they can be to wrongly seduce you to fall for their sweet words
just think carefully before you enter such places...just google ...i hope you dont do what mistakes i did
i kept warning some while some other men were there with me after i realised what it was...they didn't believe me then but they probably would have found out by now

please share your bad experiences to avoid other naive individuals trying to fix their lovelife in a hurry one way or the other..the end result is serious negative balance in your heart too

We offer a nice extra and / or basic earnings!
The essence of the work lies in companionship with foreigners.

Unlike competing agencies that collaborate with several dating sites,
our partner sites only one - (AnastasiaDate).

This makes sense on the basis of the name "marriage agency."

But, generally, we are looking only women.

What does the camera?
A man will see you in a small window (approximately 4 to 5 cm)
as proof that there really is you. The man can not hear you.
You can communicate simultaneously with several men at the same time,
for each dialogue you are gaining bonuses separately.

The schedule is flexible, ie, You decide when and how long to stay or leave the chat.
For the Lugansk office and / or home is also optional. The office is open 20 hours a day, 6 days a week,
Do you have are always welcome! Do not forget that income depends on the time you spend chatting for communication. The more time - the more money.

A professional photo shoot and we do make you free.
Completely free, with no payment then subtract.
In the finished video output 10-25 photos. Photos can be picked up only after one month of operation, at the meeting with the first payment of bonuses.

Our agency is the lead partner sites in Lugansk, Ukraine and the second,
so we activists - all of our girls have the opportunity to participate in contests and share of the site.
It should also be noted that all the girls of our agencies receive loyalty card "Anastasia".

With the news site can be found here:
On the map of loyalty and promotions / discounts across Ukraine:

In short, anyone who has paid by card or paypal online to chat or use video socially from 2012 onwards will have lost an awful lot of money, full stop. It is entirely your choice whether to continue supporting an organization like this for purely entertainment value or dumping them completely.

The girls are real yes and you can make arrangements to meet .I been to the Ukraine more than once .I used the site yes the girls are real but they don't right the letters its done by tranlaters who work there I did meet with lady's and the take a picture with you and you pay for the translators time don't pay in cash pay the site .But the catch is the girl don't want to meet you.She is pissed she had to.She hates you .Some can act nice .Before you go they act like they are into you and so in love . Than you get there and they are not the slightest bit interested . It's so obvious they school them on your letters prior to the date.The girls are thair inventory they are told not to get involved with you .The translators is thair to make sure of that and the scam goes on. I even seen one no sooner than are dated ended no sooner do I see her walking down the street had in hand with her real boyfriend. I also got more than friendly with a couple local hookers who filled me in and showed me there profiles on the site .Basically MOBs are hookers with a opption to buy so you'd be far better off just trolling Kiev for hookers because they are the same thing .

First off save your money, this company is run by crooks. The women you are talking to are not what you see in the profiles and this is what happened to me as follows. I purchased credits and was chatting with one woman for awhile there are ways to give email addresses while in chat. We talked outside of the site and she was not the same woman on the profile she apologized to me and told me all about the scam what actually happens to us poor suckers. The profiles that you see are paid models that sold the rights to their photos they are not the women who you are actually talking to. The ones who you are talking to are paid to talk she informed me how they get paid, the more minutes she can get a man to chat the more money she would make. So you're talking to a nice. Beautiful girl think again it could be a man you are talking to, yes she informed me that they hire men to pretend to be women so a lot of you are talking to some guy. This is the best part on how they keep they're employees in line they confiscate passports, drivers licenses so they can't leave they're stuck there like slaves. Think about it it's Russia those clowns can do anything they want there. Anyway it is a total scam save your money and probably some of these woman's lives don't do it......

I am now more than a year active on that site and spend i think more than 4000 euro's on it. Earlier i reported here my experiences. Appart from trustworthyness the price of their services is outrages and though they keep saying it is because of their premium services, it stays outrages and not defendable. Plain chatting for instance for 20 minutes cost 10 euro's. And i can tell you that 20 minutes is nothing, it flies. And than you have to take into account that often the respons time is very high because of the connection and because of the fact that the lady has to translate first. Often minutes go by just to try to explain what you mean to say. And often the respons is short, just single words.
Nothing justifies the costs. It is just criminal practice. The conversation is also censored. Every "suspect" word is erasen by dots. Also mailadresses or other contactinformation you try to share. It really is. When you want to exchange your adress you have to send the girl a gift, ofcourse bought from the site and ofcourse also at outrages prices. I have done with four of the girls in the year i am active. And believe me it is dissapointing because all of them barely communicate by it because they all just want to be chatting at the site.

The last gift i sent months ago, to a girl i also knew for months, Svetlana (ID: 1738509) . And this because she specifically asked for it. The perfume i send cost about 300 euro and with it you get a picture of her while it is delivered. Now i can tell you she looked quite different without the makeup, etc. But ok. After that i just got a mail with 3 lines of thanks. After that i never got any mailmessage anymore. And this despite i kept chatting with her and she everytime promised me to write. I did ask this just to get trust in her and the possibility to exchange photo's etc. Now she liked me very much she told, calling me darling, did not want to lose me, etc. Every time she had excuses. First was that she had a busy job and had no time and did not could read and write English. Why she than wanted to exchange mailadresses i asked. She had forgotten that she told. After a months still no letter. She promised again and again to try but she had problem in the family. Than she had problems at work. And some weeks ago she told me she could not because her old mailadress was blocked so she had not my mailadress anymore. I asked the site to send it again to her and they did. But still she by now did not write. Because she could not write in English she now said. Told her earlier she could have done in Russian. But by now i broke the contact and told her she was the most unreliable girl on the site. You have to know that in her profile tekst she states she is very reliable.

This experience is more or less examplary for the girls i have met on the site. I have no direct evidence of them getting paid, but there are lots of indirect evidence.

I have engaged a detective bureau AllRussians to just investigate in databases one girl with whome i have many contacts and chatted extensively. They can also do extensive investigation but that costs a lot of money and i only got a basic check in which they look in government databases and check for social profiles. The girl in question seems to be the one that is on the profilefoto's and her profile is like she tells they are. Only she has lied about the nationality of her son in law (she tells he is English while he is from Dagestan) and i do not know why she would do it. After a year of chatting she still refuses to tell me her own maiden name and adress and so on. Why this is she can not give me a plausible reason. Ofcourse i have them already from the detective agency, but it is all about the principle. Though i do want to meet her in real and this is what she also stresses evertime.

I have more and more of such examples and it can not be the case that accidentaly i have just met such woman. They are examplary for the whole lot i think. Complaining at the site has absolutly no effect. Everytime they have disclaimers and refuse to take responsibility. It would be logic and correct if man and woman where equal parties and the site was just a platform for meeting. But it is not and they exploit the girls because that is their business model to make money out of contacts.

It is for a deetective bureau dificult to investigate if money is paid, because they can not tell me that they can investigate this. But look what the bureau AllRussians told me in their first message to me about anastasiadate, without me asking for it.:

Our service is completely discreet and confidential.
The investigated person is never contacted.

PS. I don't recommend to use the site Anastasiadate. They are too expensive and unreliable.

Best regards,
Michael Muinov

I have already reviewed the scams on Amolatina.
Anastasiadate [and several offshoots such as Afriadate and Arabiandate] all operate on the same principle and under the same management. They exist only to fleece innocents.
I have wasted a considerable amount of money but more seriously false hopes and precious time pursuing various profiles. in one case I exchanged 45 letters and became suspicious when I found the same profile on a Facebook related site by using image matching software where the same woman claimed to be 26 instead of 41! in her letters she claimed to want a meeting and i managed to convey my address to her to get off the website yet no letter came. So i stopped responding to her flow of letter as each letter and its reply cost about $15. Finally today i opened the latest letter and responded on chat [NB you are never sure that you are chatting expensively to anything more than a company 'operator' and not with the woman in the profile] only suddenly to be told 'things have changed'. Yeah! syre within a day of her sending her 52nd letter. I attache her photos

I have tested a number of profiles. They encourage you to write and spend money but more dangerously they encourage you to chat and the clock ticks fast. $100 bucks goes nowhere. After a bit you can tell that the person responding on chat is not the same person as before. Equally can the girls be on line almost 18 hrs a day?

So in short all these sites are scams. yes, there may be the odd genuine profile, particularly those less endowed with curvaceous figures and stunning looks,

The reviews giving ***** are very transparent. they are all 'plugs' placed by the company.

Tip for consumers: AVOID!

This site is a complete fraud. The girls are paid by the local agencies and just chat and write letters for money. I found out via social media that the girl I was writing to was married. Anastasia refused to refund my money saying that "social media was not evidence" I hired a PI to get evidence of marriage, Anastasia replied "PI reports are not evidence". I obtained a copy of her internal passport and sent it to Anastasia, Anastasia replied by deleting my account, confiscating my remaining credits and ignoring me. This is a criminal organisation pretending to be a dating site

There are a few Eastern European dating sites that are notorious for being a COMPLETE SCAM. (or any with anastasia in its url) and Charmingdate among others. The women on the site are fake and are actually employees of the site. Their job is to have the men pay for every a la carte service such as "translation" of letters. JUST AVOID AND SAVE YOUR MONEY.

Also, avoid the free sites. You get what you pay for. Most of the profiles on the free sites are made by scammers. Stick with the sites that have scam protection and you just pay a small monthly fee to get access to the entire site.

Tip for consumers: SCAM, SCAM, SCAM!!! The women members are employees of the site.

Sean, I'm very sad to hear that you have been yet another scam victim of AnastasiaDate. They definitely have interesting people on there... but this is what you need to know: 1. You are NOT talking to the girl in the picture. You are talking to a translator (probably a guy) who is talking on behalf of the girl. 2. The translators are being paid to keep you online - on their site - and give you as little information as possible to allow you to get off the site. After a month, if you are still using the site, you are the victim. Read the reviews that are all 1-star of this service, and remember that the 5-star reviews here are almost all paid reviewers for AnastasiaDate.

As far as I am aware this is a site with women's profiles aimed at attracting men only. From experience I can tell you that most of the profiles either are not who they are posing to be [e.g. are using model's photos etc] or have not the slightest intention of a hook up. That is to say they will keep you endlessly writing revenue earning messages but if you try to arrange a meeting they will disappear. This is also the case with the sister site Amolatina and LatamDate. Be warned and be prepared to totally waste your money.

Spot on, ADate is a con. I wrote to girls over a period of months sorry to say, and sadly the alarm bells never rang when certain girls would be there 24/7 - couldn't answer questions about their professions or explain why they weren't at work, had short term memory loss (couldn't remember anything about me) and whoever I was speaking too had never seen a letter. It is simply organised crime.

Hello but I am going to repeat the response what Stephen said earlier but I am going to be fair with the statistics: I would say 99.9% of the women on anastasiadate either get paid by an agency to chat with men or they are scammers out to make money and not looking for a real relationship. Any positive reviews for this site are almost certainly generated by the lowlife people who are behind this dodgy dating site. I dated a lady from this scam site for TWO years. Her name is Daria (Member ID:1701750). She lied and told me that she was registered only with Anastasia Scam but later I found out that she was registered with other agencies. She told me that I was the one for her but I also found out that was her story to the other men she was scamming also from the other agencies. If we all stand united and refrain from using this scam site, Anastasia Scam will be out of business and you all will be a lot richer and happier ...

I don't have the statistics, but I am out of there! I saw real and sincere woman through the cameras, and also met some of them there. They are real (don't think all of them obviously). But I am out.

Knil, Good that you are thinking of marriage. Speaking from my own experience with Anastasia Scam, the ladies I met lived in a fantasy world. As long as you shower them with the good stuff, they will play along. But when the music stops, these same ladies will abandon ship. Marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman for better and for worse. The Anastasia Scam ladies forgot the covenant part and the for worse part. So, if I were you, I will NOT even consider Anastasia Date scam. You want a real relationship built on honesty and love. Anastasia Date scam is NOT based on honesty and principle. I say these things to you because I went over there and spent time with the ladies and I observe. You observe and you need to read and interpret body language. A scammer can hide their true intentions but their subconscious actions reveal the true picture! Anways, I wish you all success with your future and your love life. Life is too short to spend it on the wrong person and for the wrong reasons. Regards,

Brian...if you haven't yet figured out that all this dating site crap is a scam, then you are a fool. My friend has pissed away over $35,000 and still hasn't met Viktoria. Get out of there and quit pissing away your money. I mean REALLY? Go to church, take classes at a local community college, volunteer, and you will meet the right one who has the same values that you do.
