Anastasia date scam....pro dater with a twist
« on: June 03, 2010, 03:38:06 PM »
Hi everyone,
 I'm new here. I am 42 years old and ha vent had a lot of luck dating women in my area. I decided to join a Ukraine/Russian dating site and see if anything caught my eye. I did some research ( Obviously not enough !) and decided to join Anastasia date.com.
 Well, I picked 6 profiles and sent letters to them. I added my pictures and did the profile. I got a few replies and ONE had me interested.........Long story short.......900 dollars later and we were talking about me flying out to see her in Kiev/ Odessa . Today , she asked me if a friend could join us in Odessa for 'a few days or so'.......Sure if she pays for her food and transportation she can stay in your room. ( I had planned on a 2 bedroom apartment, no pressure wanted on her ) She says that she thought that it was impolite !!!!! LOL
 well, needless to say, she said that I shouldn't rent the apartment, that she needed to think about this.
 I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience, dint get me wrong........I would love to have 2 pretty girls hanging off my arm, but I cant feed all of ODESSA !! Geezzzzzzz
 As a footnote, www.keivapts.com have been very nice to deal with. I will use them when I go. I have a plane ticket already purchased. I am planning on going because I LOVE history and still want to go see the country.

Welcome to the site.  tiphat

Anastasiaweb is not a site for the neophyte indeed.

You can read about Odessa and draw your own conclusions here: http://ruadventures.com/forum/index.php?topic=11208.0
please tell me where I'm being / have been 'dishonest'? 
Yes, he said that.........

It's a typical scam suggested by 'good time' girls. You WILL be expected to pay all her friend's expenses including transportation from ... ?

Read lots here and move on.

Little advise - stop writing.  Get on a plane and see many women (blind  meeting)until you meet one you really like.  Will save you a lot of time and money. 

How old is this girl before you call her a scammer.  She maybe like most women in Ukraine under 25 years old and just wants to date and have fun.  Scam gets thrown around to much.  You have to date before marriage so plan on visiting Ukraine often if your looking for marriage.

Kiev, normally you would be right, and ronin104 did not mind the girl staying in the extra bedroom, but paying for HER transportation as well?? That is just crazy!!!

Totally agree, I might as well NOT  have used the agencies and just GO to Nikolayev and pick them of the street!  :D :king:

I prefer the story Vinny presented.  Gregory I did not press 1 to repeat the above options.  How do we disconnect?

Hello Alice,

We are sorry to hear about your recent experience with our pool guy. Although Shane was similar to the hundreds of other young hunks that we hire with his chiselled face, muscular body and undoubted sex appeal, we were surprised to learn that he entered your house and stole $5,000.

We may at sometime in the future stop our marketing campaigns to elderly spinsters who have more money than sense and, if a few hundred more similar reports are received regarding Shane, we may consider terminating his contract and all those other alleged thieves that we hire from the Criminal Rehabilitation program.

A check for $2 will be forwarded to you in due course.

Yours truly,

Sue Age
Customer Service

There we go!  Thanks Vinny

Good one. Maybe change the "A check for $2 will be forwarded to you in due course." to "We have added additional credits to your account so another hot young pool boy can rob you at a later date"  ?

What is the age of the two hotties ?

It starts wrong at first sight,

The red flag is here "Today , she asked me if a friend could join us in Odessa for 'a few days or so'.......Sure if she pays for her food and transportation she can stay in your room"
Guy what you don't know : in the culture if you say yes you are expected to pay all, for both, ti comprendo ?
when you want to have a serious relationship, this is a private affair, no other  people should be involved. You already told her that she will have her bedroom so she don't need a friend.

No sir, our policy of returning the occasional dollar is a deliberate one as it allows us to use the slogan ‘100% satisfaction guaranteed or a refund’.

You may also be interested to know that we do also employ some slightly older cleaners who are not thieves as this helps to populate our testimonial page. They don’t earn us so much but they make us look more authentic.

Thank you

Suzy

I find it rather interesting this post , replying to a topic dated June 2010,
came along today.

Wonder if someone was told to look up threads about Aweb or Adate on the forums?

 :coffeeread:

It's reasonable to assume he was directed here quite recently...
but its doubtful the intent was for him to answer  this 3 year old thread.
