Was a member for 6 months and found the following: The girls are paid to keep you talking in chat as long as they can as they charge you for the chat per minute and they also chatge to read the ladies letters which are 99% fake. I wrote letters lying about myself telling them i was old and poor and just wanted sex and received letters back from the women talking about everything but what i had written and that they wanted to spend forever with me(they looked like form letters with my name in them)even if you dont want to talk to a woman she keeps asking why or anything that will keep you talking in the chat the whole time your money is going away. If you do go to one of the eastern European countries as i did and try and meet one of these women you will find that everything you encounter there is a scam also. First you try and talk to the women about what you have been chatting about over the past few months and they look at you like your crazy so that shows it was probably not even them chatting, and unless you pay double the price for chat to view them in video you cant tell. The women that dont speak or claim not to speak your language use a translator hired by the agency of course at rates of 20 U.S. per hour(which is more than 95% of what the people in that country make) if you try and hire an outside translator at a 1/3 the price the woman says she feels comfortable with her translator (the agency one of course) and of course being the morn that we are you dont want to insult your possible future wife, you go on dates paying for everything for her and the translator these woman pretend to be into it and spend time with you while your there and as soon as you try and get a commitment after talking for months on the internet, spending a week or two with her and so on they claim they need more time and another trip which of course will have the same results. I actually talked to 5 women on the site because i heard that some might be fake and one of them got frustrated when i insisted on my interpreter and told me i was a fool and that they had gotten all of my money and she was paid by the agency to talk to me and bring me to the Ukraine. Its a scam /scam /scam and they are making hundreds of millions on it. When you go to complain to the BBB they do nothing. They have changed their names over time i am sure due to bad publicity and used to be Anastasia international but its still a scam through and through.
If it wasn't a scam they would have hundreds of thousands of successful relationships as long as they have been in business and with the money they have collected, but they do not the show couples they claim have gotten together with each other from the site with just first names like ted & olga which i am sure are not a real couple or if they are they didn't meet on this site guaranteed.
Sites like this are focused on fleecing lonely men out of hundreds of millions of dollars. And they have expanded to latin international and asian international
