Anastaisa Date is a complex and difficult website to review because there are elements which seem legitimate and many other elements which seem to be designed to rip-off unsuspecting romantically inclined men. I believe it may be possible to have a real experience of meeting and marrying a woman from the site but I also believe the odds to be one in... say five thousand.

The site does an excellent job of mixing real profiles with fake or hyped profiles so a guy will find it pretty much impossible to tell if the woman who claims to be interested in him is just out to make herself money or really IS interested in him. I've been on the site for several months now checking out many profiles and getting to know a few women and all of them do the following:

1) They never give you contact info other than through the site. Even after you tell them how expensive the site is, they insist on continuing to contact you through the site. Many just ignore when you tell them to keep chat short and go right on asking questions as though you never mentioned the subject.
2) Having an actual communication with a woman, whether by chat, video chat, by email or phone costs $ that adds up fast. I am embarrassed to say how much I've spent there in the past few months. Thousands! Easily. So many beautiful young women interested in you. Yeah, right. Don't believe it.

    Hi guys,
    it hurts me to read all these bad things and to realise it's me too who had to make experience about it. YES, maybe 1 of 5000 is great, but sorry, life too short to find this ONE!
    Good luck!

    I too spent thousands of $ on Anastasia. These are poor girls who from the very beginning are merely playing a part, are actresses faking a relationship with you in order to earn a cut of the fees you pay. Don't be fooled!

    I come back to my last comment 2 days before. We still work to find out more about this PREMIUM SCAM dating site As I told in my last comment this site scam all men to make only money. It is not my interest to talk about woman that use this dating page to scam men, that is normal in every dating site and for sure can’t take the responsible for that ( is only the platform to bring the product (WOMEN) into the market), this first is part of the agents that connected with and deliver the women, this people has to take care that this scammers not get entrée in this site.
    Our intension is to stop this scam himself and start one official investigatıon against this site. We check this page now at least 18 hours per day with 4 computers and profiles and we understand more and more how this scammer software is working. The women play only a very uninteresting part in all this. We also very sure that in chats and emails maybe the women know nothing that she (the profiles) also be only used, to make profit for
    I will travel to the Ukraine again and meet some women and also agencies from again to find out more. All this is not so easy many women not speak some word English and all need ever a translator.
    What we all can’t understand is the following: There are many American guys that cry that she was cheated and nobody do something. We are European guys and no one from use was cheated from this US dating site, we hate only how other people cheated from this dating site and that’s why we invest money and effort to stop this.
    After I will back I will explain more about what we find out. Not forget and take in your mind there are many more scammers, especially with Ukrainian and Russian women in the internet.

    I have been employed by a wealthy individual to investigate women he was corresponding with, and in doing so, that has brought me to Russia and Ukraine to look at women he was corresponding with more closely. My findings are that, there are a high proportion of women who are not single using the website, where proof can be easy obtain, with questions marks on the rest, that’s leaves a small amount of women who could be one or the other. You don’t need to have much resources as my client to find information about these women as he has, a lot of the information is free, and just requires time. The world we live in i.e. social media you can find out a great deal of information on individuals if you have time. Test it out, on the women you’re talking to, it take anywhere between 2min to 10 minutes depending on the information you enter! plus its free! just need time! I have investigated in excess of 200 hundred women other the last year, and only a small amount have had real motivates. My first advice is, be realistic on the women your interested in, take time and do research! Travel to the country, live there, think with your head, employ your own translators etc...If you do find someone with no questions marks, i.e. will communicate away from the site, or meet you when you’re in the country you’re lucky, if not! Employ an investigator, which will cost you lest then the thousands of pounds you spend from your computer. If you don’t have the money or time don’t go there! Good luck to you all...

    Hi all:
    I've been read different forums about and differ in most of them. I was in Ukraine last year almost a month and enough knowledge of Ukrainian culture. The people there are very friendly and hospitable and have very high family values. depures have been there was that I decided to get to this page, and all I see on this page and the people with whom I talk and I talk, it makes a lot of sense with what I saw there. I can not guarantee or warrant that there are no people who receive commission for talking to you on the page, nor could ensure that women are no hooks to draw people to the site. In my experience page equals real life, but with many more advantages. On the page you can empoezar to talk with anyone and she knows that your privacy is protected and that she may at any time terminate the relationship with you or ignore you without explanation, which in real life can be very, very difficult.
    The site can not share information, because the site in the end it is a business, and lives of men who register and talk with women on the site, if you consiguieras data either, have two problems: 1. The site will no longer receive your money. It seems more understandable than copper because the site is a business and manage a site of these time consuming, many people and technological equipment: Servers, translators, photographers, programmers, developers, logistics and organization. On the other hand you have the problem of no longer being able to communicate so easily with them because the level of English is usually beginner, or none but that is on the profile of women. If you intend to connect, and with only five minutes of talk think you can get the personal data of the person, you are very wrong. Would you do the same? You give to a stranger you just met your details? And if you think the country is poor enough to make any woman go with you for money, for then piénsatela several times before you get to this page, because then you thought always that the person you are knowing you already know or you will meet only wants your money, how sad.
    The page is like real life, if in real life leagues here but also get more easily by the media, because the person knows that you can deliver faster and because the people who are here this to the same as your, looking couple. But if you do not you link anything in real life, here you will get it but end up losing all your friends, because it takes more to get to know people, and that there is no chemical factor important for couples relationship. If they do not answer questions sometimes it is because there is a program that you write in English or Spanish. I translated into Russian and vice versa, and the same in reverse, and sometimes the translation is not exact but almost always because you wrote the misspelled word in your language. And if you try to exchange phone correso system crashes and sometimes I'll even take the place
     In closing I would comment that on this page have known many people and wonderful people, and through telephone or video and exchanged personal information, which is currently allowed and I write and speak with them, and I have the door open to direction and irlas to visit anytime. The problem is the language, with non-English speaking I can not speak for the language problem, but I write in my language and translate the letter as I have done with this, you can not be good English but in the end I understand and I respond. If things worth easily be made, would make any

    Thank you for your feedback. At AnastasiaDate we take all complaints very seriously. If you are a current or prior customer, please contact us as we are here to help.

    It’s not by chance that AnastasiaDate has become the world's leading Russian-American Introduction Agency. For over fifteen years AnastasiaDate’s constant commitment to honesty, integrity and hard work on behalf of her members has allowed the industry to raise its standards. The history of AnastasiaDate has been one of providing clients with genuine, valuable service in the face of other less scrupulous Russian dating agencies whose iniquity tarnishes the reputation of all.

    AnastasiaDate is the first and only agency to tackle the issues of internet dating fraud and anti-scam head-on. There are other Russian singles and mail order brides agencies that conduct honest business. However, in the online introductions industry simple honesty isn’t enough to make a real difference to the consumer with regards to dating fraud. Industry professionals must be proactive and fight scam directly, and here's why:

    No agency is an island, and no mail order bride agency can operate independently. All major agencies depend on networks of dozens, (or in the case of AnastasiaDate over a thousand) smaller dating agencies to register ladies (Russian women and Ukraine women), perform services for members, and fight scam. Whenever a consumer deals with any given Russian or Ukraine brides agency they should keep in mind that their agency depends on numerous other affiliated agencies for scam and internet fraud protection.

    If other Russian ladies’ agencies are less scrupulous (scammers), or if a particular Russian or Ukraine woman is disingenuous, the client suffers regardless of the integrity of their home mail order brides agency. Following this, a particular agency simply "being honest" is not enough to protect consumers. What is required is vigilance supported by forceful action against scam. Such attention is the pillar of AnastasiaDate scam and anti-scam operation.

    AnastasiaDate scam and anti-scam unit has spent over a million dollars implementing an industry-wide business system designed to ferret out less than honest agencies suspected of internet dating scams while helping upright and trustworthy agencies prosper. Creating this comprehensive anti-scam watchdog system to protect and serve our members is a Herculean task as well as a significant financial investment. But AnastasiaDate’s scam and anti-scam operation firmly believes that the long term survival of our industry depends on stepping up to enforce discipline against dating fraud on the industry level. At the heart of the AnastasiaDate’s scam and anti-scam unit’s success is the protection she provides her members by establishing and asserting an ethical standard on the numerous Eastern European affiliate partners she deals with.

    Internet Dating Fraud Protection
    No other company has come close to investing the energy, time and resources necessary to create a system that obliges participating agencies to operate by strict U.S. business standards and the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act of 2005 (IMBRA). Anastasia is the only Russian dating company in the industry to even attempt a consumer protection campaign of this magnitude to combat internet dating fraud and scam.

    Anastasia scam and anti-scam unit is the only agency that maintains a full time anti-scam staff specifically devoted to checking correspondence for fraudulent activity and reacting to reports of suspicious correspondence and internet dating fraud.
    All single Russian women who register on Anastasia are personally contacted by Anastasia scam and anti-scam staff to verify their identity and contact information, and to confirm that (1) the Russian or Ukrainian woman exists, (2) she knows and understands that she is a part of Anastasia’s system and (3) she is interested in finding an American or European husband and (4) understands the terms of her participation.
    No other Russian dating agency comprehensively validates the identity of each and every woman on their site. Every other mail order bride agency in this industry, including Anastasia’s major competitors, rely on local agencies to establish their ladies' identities.
    When issues of possible fraudulent or inappropriate activity arise on her web site, Anastasia scam and anti-scam unit launches a quick and thorough investigation, documents all findings concerning possible internet dating fraud, takes appropriate action and reports to her members.
    In all cases where improper or dishonest behavior is found, Anastasia scam and anti-scam unit removes the Russian or Ukraine lady from her system, fines the lady’s agency and issues a refund to her member.
    Second or third offenses by an internet dating agency are fined more severely.
    A fourth offense results in the mail order brides agency being permanently removed from Anastasia’s system.
    The evolution of the international dating industry bears significant relevance to today’s situation. The industry was founded by dozens of small, family owned agencies helping Western men meet Russian girls and Ukraine girls via postal mail correspondence. In those days, the small agencies in Eastern Europe existed by selling addresses of their local ladies to Western owned agencies who then sold them to their clients. With the advent of email correspondence sites, these Russian ladies' addresses (the bread and butter of the small local agencies) became worthless almost overnight. The days of agencies simply selling the same information again and again became passé.

    Subsequently, in order to survive, small Russian dating agencies are required to contact ladies to ensure that they are reading and responding to their email. Essentially they must now actually work for their living instead of selling static data on Russian women over and over. The transition to electronic marketing and correspondence has opened new opportunities for growth but also exposes avenues for potential corruption. So from the beginning Anastasia’s attitude toward small agencies has been simple: Anyone who tries to scam our clients is scamming us. We will react to this with great consequence to those proven guilty.

    Most Russian dating agencies see this scenario as a positive change and an opportunity to professionalize and grow. There are numerous participating agencies that flourish within this system and open additional offices in multiple cities. These are the agencies for single Russian women that Anastasia supports, and we applaud the great strides and progress they have made.

    An Educated Consumer
    Correspondence with a potential Russian bride is a very valuable and potent tool. However it’s but the first in a series of steps towards a face to face meeting with a possible partner. All the advanced technology Anastasia employs on behalf of her members - correspondence, phone calls, video chat, etc…are preludes to the ultimate litmus test one must take in order to find a Russian or Ukraine woman as a mate. Ultimately, one must go there oneself in order to determine if any one of several Russian women they have connected with are suitable partners.

    You must meet your would be Russian bride face to face and spend time with them in person in order to determine suitability to include them in your life, and for them to decide to include you in theirs.

    The standard procedure for both Western men and Russian mail order brides when beginning correspondence is to list a brief description of themselves on a Russian dating website. Included is usually a personable, general introductory letter wherein they describe themselves and their life in modest detail together with what they are looking for in a mate. Men send copies of their introductory letters to many Russian women, and Russian girls send theirs to numerous men. Once both people have a better idea of who they are dealing with they decide to begin personal correspondence. At this stage more pertinent questions are asked of potential partners once the field narrows.

    This procedure has been standard for everyone since the international dating industry began, whether the correspondence is by snail-mail or email.

    Russian and Ukraine women’s agencies that perform match-making services in addition to simply providing introductions are considered more proactive about the process. These agencies take the further step of searching through databases for their clients and sending introductory letters to perspective matches who meet members criteria.

    Anastasia’s email forwarding system links men in America and around the world with Russian and Ukrainian girls who are represented by over 1000 local internet dating agencies.

    Local Russian and Ukraine women’s agencies join Anastasia’s network on a separate Russian language website where they list ladies from their own sites. Some agencies perform matchmaking services for their ladies by looking through our database of men and forwarding a lady's introductory letter to them through Anastasia. This is considered a proper and wholly ethical matchmaking service performed for the ladies and men on Anastasia’s system. Anastasia and the International Marriage Brokers Regulatory Act (IMBRA) do not consider this practice to be internet dating fraud or a dating scam. However, should an agency write further letters "on behalf" of the lady, after the Introductory Letter, this is certainly objectionable to which Anastasia will take action.

    Consumers are sometimes under the mistaken impression that if a Russian or Ukraine girl’s photo and profile is on an agency's website means the agency vouches for the woman, for her character and trustworthiness. This is simply not true. No company can vouch for the character of any man or woman using their services, and no self respecting agency in the business, including Anastasia, will make that declaration.

    The only measures a forthright agency can take is exactly what Anastasia does; keep a vigilant eye out and aggressively react to inappropriate behavior and possible internet dating scam scenarios when they come to her attention. The response of any professional organization should invariably be to investigate all reports, come to a clear determination of the facts, document the findings in detail, and if there is a problem, resolve it. In the case of a misunderstanding a reputable Russian dating agency will make the facts clear. If fraud is found, they should refund a member’s fees and insure that the perpetrators are removed from their system.

    This is precisely Anastasia’s approach. She does it every single day and strongly urges her members to immediately report anything that seems suspect in their correspondence. Anastasia will immediately look into the issue, speak with all parties involved and take appropriate action to protect her members best interests

    It’s impossible for any Russian dating agency to anticipate and prevent all instances of internet dating fraud or web scam. However, Anastasia has made significant progress by screening and monitoring both it’s Russian dating affiliates and ladies who register on her site. As a result, Anastasia has been successful to a large degree in sorting out undesirables and possible scammers from this industry.

    To put the scale of the problem in perspective, Anastasia has approximately 400, 000 pieces of email moving through our system every week with from 20-30 complaints about suspicious activity that may involve internet dating fraud. About half of those cases turn out to be misunderstandings or situations where gentlemen have unrealistic expectations from the system.

    Running an email-based correspondence system such as Anastasia’s is a highly complex task. This is why Anastasia’s is the only company that has been able to be effective and deliver for her members time and again.

    Anastasiadate is paying girls to chat and for correspondence. You can read all about this scam in there is job advertisements... all of what you need to know, also I love how in 2 days all the positive reviews Gregory is busy creating profiles and good reviews, I live in Odessa and have for 8 years this year alone 10 rental clients I had show up to meet ladies and all where out of town. face the facts people you are using a million dollar corporation that is only interested in your money not find you a partner, Also another thing they recently did was remove age range from ladies profiles so the men do not know what age a lady would be interested in, this is a scam because men a lady would never have interest in will contact her and pay for nothing

    In my experience here & my continued frustration I'm really sure I was right originally I believe the girls are paid & cams maybe just recordings. My last correspondence to you & especially the reply now makes me even more angry then ever. I asked your "live support" to help in my last cam experience as the girl would not respond to the simplest of requests like wave, stand up, blow a kiss & wave again just wave hello! I wasted 50 credits waiting for her to just wave which she never did so I ask your folks let me try one more time if she's real then we'll know give me some credits & let me help you & me to know for sure. The last time you were very aggressive in telling me you have all the correspondence as though I was trying to ask a girl to model. Well now lets see what you have to say. Also remember I have now chatted with quite a few & never do I get to any real important answers or questions to her regarding future marriage it's always just enough to keep the conversations going that's how I know they get something from YOU! If I'm wrong then why not help me? Or credit my card & you can remove my profile. I have kept detailed accounts of all my correspondence as you have dome I have all my chat questions, responses, & cam dialogue, please lets get to some real truth here. I will be glad to write in my World blog, LA Times & discuss on my radio show all I have & the great experience I've had on Anastasia. This has been my letter to them PLEASE DONT SPEND YOUR MONEY HERE!!

    I have been communicating with a lady now for a number of months. We talk on chat and live cam. Every time I chat with her she is real and I can see her reactions to what I write and her responses. Many times the smiles come up without her typing which is strange but everything else seems quite legitimate.
    She looks for me at the allotted time and when I need to go her profile is logged off soon after. It has cost me a lot of money and when I visit she does not want me to visit her town. It is in south eastern Ukraine according to site and could be dangerous.
    Perhaps she is getting paid to chat but she seems real. She says she doesn't have email at home and uses the 'agency' rooms. I looked on vk but could not find her, she may be telling the truth. She is 37 and I 52. I have asked about the age difference but it appears this is normal in East European countries.
    I know that I am communicating with the person in the profile but now am in two minds due to all this talk of ladies being paid to chat. Perhaps I am just too trusting.

    Watch out its all a scam. 99 percent of all the girls have boyfriends. Come on guys even fat ugly girls have boyfriends anywhere else you go. The insane crap about them findin a man overseas is a joke. They love their life in Ukraine. Why would they come to another country where they don't fit in and speak your language. It's weird right ? Common sense prevails here guys. Like the other people says hire a private investigator and follow them for a day. Also never send money through western union. Do a direct deposit into their account with the actual names not a friend. Don't fall for any excuses they give you. If they give you a million excuses why they can't get a bank account it's a big scam. Make sure you visit the girl and meet her face to face and hire your own translator. Don't hire theirs. Who in the right mind pays $20 an hour where here in USA, I only pay that to my professor. The average monthly income is $300 in Ukraine. Don't be an dumb. Also use your translator to get you a taxi and choose the restaurant. All these jokers are in cahoots trying to make kickbacks. Also don't buy them anything on a first date. If you didn't do it for the girls in your country, why the hell would you do it in Ukraine ? Trust your instinct if it feels wrong then walk away and consider it a lesson learned and be more vigilant next time. Go to for my story. Pass the words and help me bring her to justice.

    ZhenyaKitos seems to be publishing non-complaints here but rather make absurd allegations in hopes of advertising for his blog. For starters all video chats are in real-time, thus to imply that somehow members are able to fake this using our software is ridiculous. Likewise to imply that all girls have boyfriends is a bit strange for several reasons as members are looking boyfriends online and thus dating them online though this may not mean anyone is exclusive. If any member is in a serious relationship with a boyfriend they are free to leave the site anytime just as with any other dating website. Most of the girls on our site actually do speak English and want to live abroad. To imply that they don't speak English and don't want to find love abroad is also nonsense - obviously ZhenyaKitos has not been living in Ukraine the last 20 years to know the reasons why some people find it more advantageous to leave than stay. Obviously it seems he was in a relationship that ended. However was most likely not a member of our site or he would have contacted customer service to investigate any claims against another member. As such his "false complaint" has been reported as spam as he is clearing using this site to market his bogus blog.

We have an anti-scam policy that does recommends nobody to send money to anyone regardless of what dating site you are on. We are aware of internet trolls posting false reviews here and will rebut every fake claim as no specific member is identified or profile number provided. True customers know to file an anti-scam claim against any member the would like to have investigated.

    visit these sites for more proof that is nothing but fraud and promote human trafficking. Gregory is a con man in human clothes. If he had any moral decency he would finally admit how much of it is fraud. Think about it. Add yourself to all the online dating apps we have like zoosk,, bumble, cofee2bagel, tinder, mingle2. Hit up all the hot girls on the app and see what your response rate are. Compare that to and you can see that it's all a scam.

    It is amazing how you guys make generalizations that are baseless. You say a girl is married and have no proof for us to investigate. I can say the same of you, that you are married, not a member, and an internet troll that has too much time on his hands. Providing a screen shot of a member's profile offers no evidence that the lady is married nor that you are a member. Thus, I suggest if you any of the "so called members" our our site are real to contact our customer service department and complete an anti-scam claim form to get your credits back. Otherwise, you will only be making general allegations without any without any details for any issue to be solved. Let me be clear, if a lady wants to date more than one guy...she is free to do is her life and her decision. I understand at times some people are not able to react to disappointments such as breakups well and resort to posting fake complaints about a member simply cause they were dumped. This is what I suspect is the case of ZhenyaKikos and Scalpel2015 and most likely your cases have been dismissed by CSD for being unsubstantiated.
