This is a free site that does have some real people on it, but always has a significant percentage of scammers lurking, including West African scammers.
Use caution, protect your personal information, never send money to somebody you only know from the internet. Findloveasia seems to be un-monitored by the owner, be careful. Always expect to see a face on cam, and don't accept pictures as proof you are in contact with that person. There is also no reason to send money to 'help' struggling Asian ladies who are online. If they have money to be online, they are not starving. I do run into Filipina scammers, or 'beggars' on this site. Don't send money. The ones who ask for money are doing this to make a living from gullible men.

Too many scammers, keep out. Never send money to somebody you meet on the internet. Always expect to see a face on webcam. There are some profiles with stolen pictures of celebrities on this site, and other suspicious pictures.

Some scammers, use this site with caution. This is mostly a paid site, but you can communicate with limits without paying. Never send money to somebody you only know from the internet or phone calls, and always expect to see a face on cam.
Keep the age gap modest, and be honest. Research the country they are from, the culture, and possible scams or fraud from that area. Online dating is a fantasy world that can get expensive. There are some nice ladies online from Asia looking for you, but immigration and a better life are always part of what attracts them to you.

This is a paid site with a long history, going back to printed, catalogs of Asian 'brides' they would send out by mail. There is a problem with scammers at this site, and they don't appear to do much to protect paying members from scams.
Vote with your feet and wallet, keep out!

Total FRAUD! Interlingvo is now known as Gagamatch. They run an extensive network of inter-connected dating sites, with many names, that are all fraudulent. The database of fake pretty ladies is shared by all of the sites.
You will be encouraged to pay for membership, and to pay for translations of messages from the fake ladies. The people you are in contact with via this site are not the pretty ladies in the pictures, but somebody making money getting gullible men to pay for services. Total fraud!
The 'employees' also heavily spam other dating sites, and seek customers on other dating sites, paid and free. They'll set up profiles on other sites, and send messages to the men claiming they can't speak english, but you can talk to them and get translations of messages from them at one of the gagamatch sites, which they provide a link to. This is total BS. Don't spend any money at the various gagamatch sites. (they pop up new site names and URLS almost weekly, hard to keep track of them.) Paying for 'translations' on a dating site with a Russian, or Chinese lady, is usually fraud. Real ladies who are seeking a man from your country will know some of your language, or will be learning. If you can't communicate directly, without paying bogus fees, it's not likely you are in contact with a real person. Guys, hot, young asian ladies do not seek out middle-aged or older, Western men, online, unless they are up to no good, or it is total fraud. Get real. If you enjoy this kind of fantasy, it can get expensive.

This is another of the Asian 'pay for play' sites, that is mostly populated by fake ladies. The pretty ladies in the profiles are not real, but you will get pushed to communicate with somebody pretending to be these ladies, and you have to pay for the messages, or translation of the messages. The messages are not from the lady in the pictures, but somebody making money getting you to pay for messages, and other features of the site. KEEP OUT!

Matchdoctor.com is crawling with West African scammers, pretending to be anyone, from anywhere. Keep out.
If you are attempting to meet somebody real online, never send money for any reason to somebody you only know from the internet or phone calls, and always expect to see a face on cam.

Too many stolen pictures and fake profiles, with many easily identified as West African scammers. This site is not worth your time. There's no excuse to have profiles that are easily identified as those set up by West African scammers, and it only takes a very modest amount of training, and time, to keep most of them out.

Keep out! This appears to be a 'pay per message' site, with some fraud going on to get you to pay for messaging from what appears to be site employees, or other fake people. They make it difficult or impossible to delete your account from the site, also. PLEASE stay away! Something 'not good' is going on, here.

This is a paid site, and I see reported scammers as members as soon as I look at the site. There is no excuse for this. One person I see was reported last summer, the report pops up on google when you do an image search, and the report is on a reputable anti-scam site. This means the operators of this site are doing nothing for the money they collect from members. No excuse.

Melindaspenpals.com is one of the few sites that makes an attempt to keep scammers out, and control questionable activity. It's 'OK'

Asiadateonline

I see fake pictures being used on profiles, either stock photos of pretty asian ladies, or stolen pictures of pretty asian models, actresses, or other celebrities.
This means either the site owner is 'padding' the site with fake profiles, (common), or these are fakes, or scammers behind the profiles.
There is no excuse to have stolen pictures being used on dating sites. It means the site owner doesn't care, doesn't take a few seconds to check, or is crooked!
It only takes a few seconds to identify the source of the stolen pictures using google image search. There's no excuse! When I see a site like this, I warn people to keep away.

WesternUnion

Western Union has long been the preferred mode of collecting money by SCAMMERS!
This does not Western Union is at fault. They did what the victim told them to.

Don't send money to people you only know from the internet, or phone calls, and there is no reason to use Western Union for payments to purchase items online, also.
Businesses who only accept payment by western union are suspect.

Total fraud! Keep out!
Loveybible.com is a smaller chinese owned dating site operating on the 'pay per message' format. The girls are fake. The pictures of the pretty chinese girls are stolen, and mostly of actresses, models, etc. You are not in contact with these ladies, but some sleazebag who is making money, pretending to be that pretty lady, and getting some idiot to pay to send messages to her, and to have fake messages from her translated. Don't be stupid. Keep away from loveybible.com

Eurogents.com

Too many scammer profiles, keep out! Many of the male profiles appear to use stolen pictures that have been reported in use by West African scammers.
Learn to use Google image search, always expect to see a face on webcam, and never send money to somebody you only know from the internet, or phone calls.

CharmDate

Total fraud. Don't spend any time or money here. A majority of the profiles are fake. You'll constantly be bombarded with chat requests from fake ladies, and also emails from them. You cant chat or read the emails without paying fees. The messages and emails are written by staff or other people making money getting stupid MEN to pay fees on this site. Yes, MEN. (Women do not pay on this site!)

Keep away from charmingdate.com. It's owned by the same people as the equally fraudulent chnlove.com, and idateasia.com, and share the same member datatbase and fraudulent tactics.
