Clearly, the one-timers posting 5-star reviews are fakes or extremely desperate men spending horrendous amounts of money with nothing more in return than fake letters from fake women. Furthermore, just like most other scam sites, they deal with "suppliers" to answer your mail and chat and most times, without the knowledge of the woman in the picture. In other words, you could very well be chatting with a man or granny thinking that you are with the fake hottie from the picture. All those companies partially admit to it and some like victoriahearts, FULLY admit to it on their own website (see my review in here). They do so to prevent being sued for scamming you. In other words, they are robbing you LEGALLY! Furthermore, the pictures of the women are from the supplier as well as mentioned in their own terms. You will find the exact same pictures on all other sites.
To prove my point (already is when they admit it on their sites), open an account but do not pay for anything! Place a picture of a monkey and write the worst description of yourself. You will still get a lot of letters from models. Also, why is it that the pictures of the women are the same for years? Better yet, why is it that if you desire to meet one of them they always break the connection? I know what I am talking about as I went through it.
Let's check out anastasiadate.com has to say to protect itself from lawsuits and from being arrested for fraud...

Employees, agents, servants or representatives including, without limitation, their failure to deliver Services, or partial or inadequate delivery of Services. According to terms of agreement with its Suppliers, AnastasiaDate is prohibited from rendering the Suppliers' contact information. Services provided by the Suppliers include but are not limited to the following: Suppliers provide full, accurate and legitimate information required for the registration of referred Members at AnastasiaDate prior to their registration according to the terms of Agreement.

Any warranty of fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement. AnastasiaDate cannot guarantee and does not promise any specific results from use of the Website and/or the Service. Receipt or exchange of funds or any other means of payment is prohibited on the Website."
Proof enough? A supplier takes care of everything for AnastasiaDate from supplying pictures of women, answering your letters, chat and AnastasiaDate couldn't care less if you are being 100% scammed as long as they get their share of the money.
They are all the same type of crooks and they all deal with the same supplier which, I'm sure, is created by them so they can protect themselves from lawsuits and criminal charges.
Be smart and stay away from those crooks!
