    You should report immediately to AnastasiaDate.com. This is serious. Of course there are going to be cases where girls and even local agencies get together to try to defraud AnastasiaDate but this is not the picture across all of Ukraine and Russia.

    I come back to my last comment 2 days before. We still work to find out more about this PREMIUM SCAM dating site anastasiadate.com. 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 anastasiedate.com can’t take the responsible for that (anastasiadate.com is only the platform to bring the product (WOMEN) into the market), this first is part of the agents that connected with anastasiadate.com 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 anastasiadate.com 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 anastasiadate.com
    I will travel to the Ukraine again and meet some women and also agencies from anastasiadate.com 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.

    What I tell you is very real and I am sure member of this site. As I told 3 of my friends also members in this site to find out more about all this tricks to cheat people. I don't know you are real know the life in Ukraine and in Russia and how it work there. I know and live there many times. Not more then 5% of all the woman that in the dating sites think in real to leave her country. What the other women want is very easy, make some money for his pocket with a easy work.

    Very clear for me is also now that there many agents that also do the work when the woman is at work or in the school. You should meet some agents in the towns of the Ukraine. I have many interviews with woman how it work. We try to find out more about this structure and after we will present this the competent public prosecutor's Office in the town where the company are registered, after we will see. All this cheaters are US companies, the hosting of all this pages is ever done far from USA, you can check this very easy.

    What here is practiced is organised, professionally scam, this is not only my opinion, are the facts that shown. It is for me also very clear that no Internet platform can say she did not know that, it has been made all of our agents on the ground so and we not know all this.

    Maybe you will understand that no one from us want to make any message now to the Anastasiadate.com, about what we know and have in our pocket. We are sure that this site know all better then we all together.

    Also this is coming out from a chat in Ansatasiadate.com, I delete only the ID number of the lady and my name, no comment about this.

    Here is something from an actual lady client on anastasia.com

    I would like to tell personal story about Anastasia.com. I am girl from Kiev (Ukraine), I am nice, well-educated and I know English. I wanted to find serious relationship with help of site Anastasia. Well, I registered on the site with my real name and stated that I am woman looking for a man. Can you believe, some mistake has happen and I started to receive invitations from girls to be a member and to chat with them or to read their e-mails? I felt that Anastasia doesn't expect girls to make registration by themselves; they prefer to work with local agencies. Well, than I met a girl who was working in the local international dating agency, partner of Anastasia. She told me that she needs to write and send hundreds of e-mails every day, trying to make new members and to have chat with them. She receives percentage from payments. Also I found many ads in the local press, where girls are invited to work in chat with foreigners. Also there are special people in the agencies, who write very emotional letters about love and relationship.
    Than I studied other international dating sites with Russian/Ukrainian girls. I found out that most popular girls usually have very provocative pictures. I mean that girl in underwear takes your attention more than girl in dress. There are many topless girls. Believe me I grew up and live in Ukraine, I am young and beautiful, but not me not any of my friends can not let provocative pictures appear in the Internet. Don't believe that Ukrainian teacher can place a picture in the Internet dressed in a sexy bra. She has colleagues, classmates, alumni, parents, pupils, relatives, and friends and so on. It will be very bad if somebody from this list will see her in underwear (or topless or nude) in the Internet dating site. It can completely destroy professional and personal reputation (I take a teacher for example, but it is true about doctors, clerks, managers and so on). Who don't care? Well, people from show-business (I didn't find girls on the dating site with such field of work), professional daters and prostitutes. I am Ukrainian and after my own experience and investigations I don't believe to dating sites. It is monopoly of professional writers, daters, and fake agencies Well, I decided to try well-known international site. I filled out application form on Match.com. Next day I couldn't access to my page. I wrote a letter to the customer service. The answer was "We don't accept profiles from your part of world any more, because of scammers".

    this should be enough for this day.

    Interesting, in the 1st case it seems like someone (an agency) is trying to scam Anastasia.

    The 2nd case, I have never seen nudity on Anastasia, and if you have used the site for 3 years, then I suppose you must agree with me that you have never seen nudity too. As for the comment regarding match.com, I suppose they don't have the resources to police scammers like Anastasia do.

The women there throw themselves at you, well, I should say the translators / handlers that write the letters for these women and chat posing as them do. And in many cases the provocative pictures that they sent aren't even the same women...

    All the girls on anastasiadate is false. There are none of them will fall in love. Date ago is just a money machine and nothing else
    I found many of the girls I spoke with on vk.com, many of the girls have profile on vk.com.
    When you contact girls on vk.com you do not hear from them again. A few of them wrote short back that they will only use Anastasiadage and also wrote back on Vk.com that they had a contract with Anastasia, which committed them to use only Anastasiadate.
    I do not know if they are getting money or gifts, but their contract requires them in a way that they can only write and speak with us through AnastasaDate

    Thank you for your feedback. At AnastasiaDate we take all complaints very seriously.

    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

    Summary
    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.

    Hello and thanks for message. Most of our ladies are 8-12 hours ahead of USA. As such they can only correspond with the men they are interested in at what might seem like odd hours. To make this more convenient for men we will be offering "Happy Hours" pricing during the night hours in USA for example, starting in May (planned). As with all international, long-distance relationships, it requires effort from both parties to make it work.

    If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our custom service team which is available 24/7 to assist you.

    Best of luck to you,

    I fully agree that the agencies in Ukraine are a scam, and in fact, I feel that AnastasiaDate is the king of scams. I have many stories including women who in fact told me they are getting paid by the agency. A guilt complex that made them tell me when they realized they really liked me and not just a money making proposition.

    A gal on Anastasia says she is a choreographer. I went to see her in her home city, Odessa, oh, but now she lives in Nikolaev and I need to pay $120 USD to get her to Odessa, and the same to return, plus $20/hr interpreter fees. I found her on VK... she is an entertainer... making enough money to take great vacations. How is that possible on a crappy entertainer salary?

    Another suddenly has a sick granny, again on Anastasia, and needs me to help pay her way back and forth to her granny...

    The whole thing is a sham, and the wonderful anti-scam letters from Anastasia are a sham as well.

    But it all boiled down to one gal who lives in Donetsk and told me she gets paid to chat and to get men to write her letters.

    I too have found these women on VK and Facebook... and suddenly they do not write? They only use VK for friends? But they post disgusting photos of nudity and sex... the whole industry is a bunch of pigs.

    Oh, and isn't amazing how you can get a mass of letters from women in the same city at one time? Just suddenly? And, have you ever noticed on Anastasia that you will get chat requests from multiple women in the same city, and their starting sentence is the same? Funny... maybe a scammer sitting there opening chat windows and too stupid to change the initial come-on line?

    i get very skeptical to this website...everyone just looks too good to be true...all the girls have the same style of photography, very photoshopped and very glamourous. How could that be possible? it appears to me, that Anastasiadate.com collects these women and use there profiles to attract clients. ive been to several dating websites...and by far, Anastasiadate.com only advertise women that looks like models and escorts!

    I seriously suspect that the ladies get paid for correspondence or that someone is writing as someone else. I know someone who is 65 and wants a woman under the age of 36 and gets much response from 18 and 20 year olds. Should I actually believe that a woman that young would marry a man old enough to be her grandfather? Would they be that desperate to leave their own country and become a US citizen...or maybe they figure that they will find someone better and divorce the man that gets them here!!

    Hello everyone,
    I have been a customer of Anastasiadate for few months. I do not subscribe to most of the negative reviews. In this site, as in life you can find women with different motivations to join the site and engage in a conversation or more with a foreigner. But this would happen also in real life: if you met girls in a disco you may have the chance to find the woman of your dreams or simply a lady that wants to have fun and is not serious.
    Personally I adopt this policy to decide whether to connect or not with the women in Anastasiadate

    1) I rule out in principle all women which English proficiency is not advanced or fluent. Please, let's not believe in fairy tales! in order to develop a deep relationship with a woman the ability to communicate in a common language is essential. So better you learn Russian or you restrict your search to who speaks English reasonably well. I know that the most beautiful girls do not speak english...but direct communication is not optional to develop a relationship.

    2) I rule out women that are constantly and repeatedly trying to chat with me without having made any previous contact through letter. I always agree before to talk in a chat with a lady. Who is on the site knows there are a number of women that are constantly trying to reach men on the chat with pre-defined opening lines. My view is: if she is interested she writes me a letter and may be she exchanges with me 2 or 3 before engaging in a chat. Writing a letter, even a short one, requires a bit of time. Reading the answer again. If the girls has a basis of interest, is the next step, If the answer contains references to my previous letter, another clear sign the girl has interest. Chatting is then the second step not the first.

    3) I rule out women that seem to be on line 90% of the time and have in their profile too sexy pics and / or too many videos. If they are on line 90% of the time, it means that are doing nothing else than chatting, This is very suspicious and not a sign of being serious. If they have more than 1-2 videos (some of the girls have even 10!), then it is clear there is at least a business case of the girl behind the profile. May be she is open to find an husband, but she definitely wants in the meantime get something out of the search.

    4) I rule out women that are not willing to exchange contacts - following the anastasiadate policy - pretty soon in the process. I read about men that stay 3 to 12 months in chat with a lady. This is to me unbelievable: get out of the virtual and go to real asap!, ask her contact details! this would save a lot of money and would give you the evidence whether the girl is really interested in your or not.

    By applying these self imposed rules the number of potential girls to who I correspond of course lower dramatically. But in my case the girls react in a way that I would define completely honest. Some they stop the connection, some are interested, some give contacts. Like in real life.

    So I am sure there might be some or a lot of girls who are not serious there, but if a man apply few rules is very easy to avoid any surprise. Overall I like to use the site and - guess what - my financial exposure towards Anastasia date per month is less than the price of romantic dinner for 2 in my city. Of course it is, because I do not chat with 5 girls at the same time or exchange letters with 10. I select and move forward with a lady only if she gives from the beginning clear signs to be serious.

    Hope this view helps, I do not have any reason so far to complain, we just need to exercise good sense, as in everything we do in life.

    @Fred68 Hi. I realize this is an old post. But I have to agree with it. See, I met a woman on the site. She sent me a letter, I read it, sounded like spam, ignored her. 3 days later another letter, read it, ignored it. 2 days later same thing, It was the 4th letter that got my attention. She asked why I ignored her, she was not looking for instant marriage, wanted to know each other, build trust and see what happened.

    Well, I responded explaining why I ignored her letters. Well, I seen her Chat Request pop up a few days later and I figured why not. Well, turns out when the chat window opened it started streaming a video. I figured great, now I am spending more money. Well, she was exactly like her pictures. We chatted for a while, laughed a bit, she asked how much time we had left? I asked why, she said I should save them for our next chat. That threw me.

    To make a long story short. We chat for 5 months. Then, out of the blue, she said we had to meet. I thought here we go. She invited me to Ukraine Ok, not what I expected. We planned it, 5 months later I went. I was looking to catch a cab to an apartment rental she helped me with and I heard my name called from behind (she is very advanced in English), there she was. She said she thought it would be easier for her to pick me up at the airport than trying to explain to driver the address (I couldn't pronounce the street) she said and cheaper too. She actually said all this as she jumped into my arms, wrapped her legs around my waist and giving me kisses on the cheek. Well, I stayed 10 days as planned. She took vacation time from work to spend with me, had dinner at her parents home (they didn't speak English) but were great hosts and were finally happy to meet me. Well, I won her father over by doing some minor repairs to their home even though he insisted me not to. I am a carpenter by trade.

    After seeing each other everyday, we took 1 day to just relax and catch our breath. About 8pm, knock on the door, it was her father. I thought, WTF? Hwas saying something, in a calm voice and laughed, then I heard 3 women laughing in the hall, i looked out, it was her, her mother and her sister. I asked with a smile what was so funny? She proceeded to tell me what her father was trying to tell me and that not to take it seriously that he been drinking. He was pretty much telling me that I needed to be with his daughter, I was a good man, good worker and all. I invited them in, we sat for about an hour, they left and it was just her and I.

    Well 6 months after I returned back home to U.S. We left the site together, I set her up a Skype, email each other, phone calls, even written letters in the mail with pictures. We were on Skype, she asked when would I have more free time that she would like to visit me here. I said whenever was good for her, how much money do I need to send her. She said, nothing, her family helped her with what she didn't have. Well we planned it, she arrived, and we been doing the back and forth thing for almost a year and a half now. She even helped me get a permanent residency permit so now i stay with her when i visit. I plan to ask the question to her very soon, already have the families blessing and permission, just need hers I guess.

    So the site worked for me. Not every woman there with sexy pictures is a scam. She didn't have half naked pictures, tasteful ones, plus it was her eyes i liked. So New Years this year I will spend with her and I will ask her to marry me. Wish me luck!

    Fred88 ... you mentioned exchanging contact information outside Anastasia. What do you mean? Isn't that against the rules?
