I respect someones right to leave bad reviews in cases where its legitimate but these seem to me to be much more than that. As in they look to be from a COMPETITOR and 2 others with a political AGENDA. I usually dont bother posting on these sites but judging from my experience with Mordinson, the 3 negative reviews are so inaccurate and unfair that I have to set a few things straight. I dont like seeing someone being slandered unfairly. Michael Mordinson has put his heart and soul into his business and runs it with pride, integrity and respect for all. Heres my story:
Im in the US and met Michael when I used his agency in late 2011. The experience was nothing short of excellent and I remember that I told my dad regularly how pleased I was with the agency's responsiveness and honesty. It not only inspired me in my own business but I also met my wife and have a beautiful baby girl and another one on the way next month. The agency translated continuously for months (and without complaint), planned and translated for us on our first date, assisted me in buying her a ring, provided my wife with English lessons, provided me lodging and advice of the area. and even helped my mother-in-law fill out paperwork to visit us years later. My wife still goes to them on occasion to polish up her English via Skype lessons. The Mordinson agency was there 100% of the time for any questions or concerns I or we may have had. We are very pleased, it couldnt have gone smoother for us. As a matter of fact, my first trip to Ukraine where my wife and I met was one of the most exciting times Ive ever had!
But back to these biased reviews. I cannot disagree more with anyone who actually personally attacks Michael or his agency. Its one thing if you strike out (which happens) and want to tell people of your experience but its another thing to try to pollute other peoples minds with these over the top reviews. One guy even listed where you should go instead? COMPETITOR The racist thing is total garbage too. In my opinion people throw that insult around way too much these days, its hateful, unnecessary and really gets old and tired. And on top of that, its not even true! Dont you have anything else to say!? Any kind of intellectual argument? I wouldnt even give these reviews the time of day, its obvious something sinister is behind those.
To those of you that are legitimately looking here to find an opportunity to meet someone without worrying of walking into a scam, Mordinson is absolutely safe, helpful and trustworthy. I tried them because I felt uncomfortable with the feeling being projected from some of the really big agency websites. It turns out that my instincts were correct and I made a very good decision. Do yourself a favor and find out for yourself, you will not be scammed by the Mordinson agency. Only the opposite, you will put in a very good opportunity to meet someone. Best of luck!
