I met a girl today online.  She is from Ukraine and she told me that she used to have a profile in Anastasia.  She told me that she had never written to men though the letters were sent to them!!   She wasn't happy about 'fake' letters

They have a new unwritten policy Anastasia , I was told buy a lady, I know that runs a small agency that if girls are not willing to chat and spend hours chatting with men they want the ladies removed from there site and now remove them , So this lady removed her profiles from Anastasia . also another agency I know that works with them will not take ladies in to here agency unless they are willing to chat at least 4 hours a day , if they are not she will not take them as new clients as they are not accepted by Anastasia

Meanwhile, the ladies on the internet filled up the letters USA military. Neither more nor less: Generals !!! :chuckle:

"Groom Pen" from the United States lured Volgogradki $ 5000.

On the Internet, 42-year-old Volgogradki met an American citizen. In his e-mails Svetlana realized that he did his military service under the contract in one of the eastern countries. Their correspondence lasted more than two months. Their profiles on a dating site through which they found each other, Svetlana and her friend were removed as soon as they began to communicate via Skype, VDTV reported in the press service of the State Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in Volgograd region.

The man wanted to visit Volgograd. For this, he asked his potential bride to send the name of his commander's application for a getaway.

Shortly email Svetlana received all necessary forms and details for payment of travel of his new friend supposedly sent from the department concerned. Enumerating through a bank of nearly three thousand dollars, she waited for a response. No news from her friend were reported in Skype, he also did not come out.

Svetlana has sent a letter to the commander, with a request to report what happened - here she did not reply received. Only on the sixth day after sending a money transfer, she received a message from which she learned that her friend was wounded in battle and allegedly at the moment, is being treated at a hospital. Their email communication has been resumed.

The man said that before leaving for Russian doctors advised him to undergo a full medical examination, which will result in an additional amount to him. Having sent two thousand dollars, Svetlana began to prepare for the long-awaited meeting. Her friend was supposed to fly on 31 July. On the flight number and arrival time, he did not say anything. The woman was waiting for him for two days.

Going to your page on August 2 Svetlana discovered that her friend had disappeared data, and only then realized that was a victim of fraud. Then the woman went to the police.

Barbossa, I have so much respect for you my friend. People on this good board who are honest, whose morals and ethical standards are in the right place, are ALL on your side. I am 100% on your side and support everything you have said in this thread. I have lost several thousand dollars to ADate. I have located about 38 to 40 women who I spent many thousands of dollars chatting with on AState.....unfortunately on VK.com who, as it turns out, are either married, engaged, or have many pictures of their serious boyfriends plastered all over their VK Page.

Unlike some, I do not take the position of "These poor, low-income, innocent 26-30 year-old Ukrainian girls....due to their poverty, they are justified in abandoning every ounce of morality they once had and scamming, frauding young Men like me whose only fault is actually having some (misplaced) trust in the basic goodness and decency of the young 26-30 year-old Women in Ukraine. You really have no idea how badly I was lied to and deceived by close to 100% of these girls I communicated with on ADate....the level of deception and dishonesty is difficult for me to even fathom now that I look back on everything.

Was I incredibly naive and stupid? Yes. Did I deserve to get scammed out of many thousands of dollars, hard-earned money I received as a result of my hard work in life, Magna Cum Laude at Texas A&M? Absolutely not, and it offends me when I hear so many guys in this thread say "any man who lost significant money on ADate...it is your fault and you deserve it".

I spent about 3 hours yesterday reading the massively long thread started by Eduard about his Marriage-finding services he offers here on this good board. Eduard is a very good guy. Maybe he embellished a little bit on the number of successful marriages he has accounted for in the last 26 months (even I admit 34 marriages in only 26 months, about 1.3 marriages every month, is just not realistic even for a man as talented at his craft as Eduard clearly is).....but that does not change the fact that Eduard has earned my complete respect as an honest, ethical, stand-up guy....who also happens to care deeply about his clients' happiness in life.....yes I am very seriously contemplating using his services in about 18 months when I travel to Kharkiv. As such, it made me sick to my stomach to see a really awesome guy like Manny completely slander Eduard's good name and reputation because of one (what I consider minor) embellishment of the facts. Manny is a badass guy, great guy, I like Manny (and would love to send his kind Wife a lot of money if, in fact, I need her services in about 18 months), but he was so wrong in the way he treated Eduard. But what really chapped my butt was how he was treated by this piece of horse shit AndrewFi. Just look at Andrew's avatar...what an ugly, chubby, overweight piece of pond scum. AndrewFi, it is a good thing you are not looking for a woman in the FSU, cause you are one ugly, fat-faced, disgusting looking dude and there is not one attractive woman in the FSU who would come within 20 miles of you (unless looks are just completely irrelevant to her). Barbosa....the guy is right on the money with everything he has said about ADate. I have personally sent both Max and Greg (Mr. Customer Service Extraordinaire of ADate who is making a complete fool out of himself in this thread) the exact url's of at least 15 girls' VK Profiles whom I chatted with on ADate whose profiles say they are "single"......who are in fact A) Married B) Engaged C) Have a very serious BFriend who they enjoy French-kissing all over their VK Page.....and what did Max and Greg do when I sent them irrefutable proof - their own damn VK Profiles/URL's with the status of "Married, Engaged or In-Love" and hundreds, hundred of pictures of them in very intimate poses with their significant other - Max and Greg both completely ignored (did not even send me a reply email back) all of my emails.......and I have checked.....and every one of these 15 or so girls who I specifically sent them their VK URL's proving they are certainly not "Single" as their ADate Profiles clearly state...are still currently active on ADate. ADate's ""Anti-Scam" policy which "attempts to ensure all the women are legit and who they say they are"....does not exist. ADate's anti-scam policy.....What Anti-Scam Policy? And their "Refund policy" which states they'll refund a customer's money if they provide clear and convincing proof a woman is a scammer.....What Refund Policy? I have not had one penny of my hard-earned money returned to me. Bottom line, ADate's Anti-Scam policy and Refund Policy do not exist, they are figment's of Max's and Greg's imagination.

I only wish I had discovered RUadventures.com at the beginning of my search for my future Wife / future Mother of my Children.....so that I would not have given the common criminals at ADate one penny of my hard-earned money.

Barbosa, you are the man. If you and I are both in-country in Kharkiv in about 18 months at the same time, I hop eto meet up with you and buy you a beer sometime.

AndrewFi, you are just as big a scammer as ADate. And Barbosa is right on the money, Andrew, you are certainly on the payroll of ADate and/or other PPL sites. Your duplicity, Andrew, is pretty disgusting. You are the most dishonest man on RUAdventures, and I plan on keeping my distance from you at all times, because I do not trust you as far as I can spit, dude. You are also the rudest individual I think I have ever come across. Your personality is just toxic, a detriment to this great board. I hope no FSU woman is ever unlucky enough to walk down the aisle with you. From what I can see, you and Manny are very tight, therefore, Manny will allow you to say and do anything you want, so you are protected here. Plus, I believe Barbosa has alluded to Manny being previously sewed by ADate, so, unfortunately, Manny is therefore not exactly impartial and objective on the topic of ADate now, is he? Sad when the owner of this board (Manny) has been sewed by ADate (according to Barbosa), and as such will not speak out at all against these common criminals, yet in fact actually protects, protects, ADate.

No Andrew, I am not going to get into a pissing match with you dude. But I will continue to laugh my ass off at you every time I read a post of yours, fatface, beergut. And, we will see who is married and who is not married in about 30 months, Andrew. Good guys don't always finish last, they often finish way ahead of evil guys.

Manny, if you feel the need to ban me as this is my first post on your awesome board, yet I am being critical of your "buddy" Andrew, I will understand. I need this board pretty badly as a source of information over the next 18 months or so, before I make my trip to Kharkiv to find my future soulmate, future Mother of my Children. But if you feel you need to ban me, I will not think badly of you, because I actually do respect you greatly Manny, you are certainly a good dude.

I will not post again in this thread, I don't need to waste any more of my time or money on piece of horse-shit ADate. Karma is gonna bite everyone associated with ADate (yes including the poor, innocent, poverty-stricken 26-30 year-old young Ukrainian women on ADate) in the ass. I am a big believer in Karma...Good things happen to Good People. Bad things happen to Bad People. Bad Karma is gonna bite everyone associated with ADate in the ass.

OK Manny, ban away if you feel that is appropriate.

Hmmm... real world calling... real world calling...

Welcome to this forum. Let me offer you some genuine help; advice that, if followed will go a large way toward enabling your success. My guess is that you will get upset and not take a word of what I wrote on board. Please read on...

You are letting people off with telling lies, that's what they are and yet you castigate Adate because you were too dumb careless to understand what you were doing?

Here's a quick tip for you: learn to be able to understand when something is not right for you and to not blame others for your shortcomings.

If you excuse dishonesty on one area how can you then claim harm from dishonesty in another area? Either you maintain standards or you don't.

When you are seeking a wife from another country, one whose language you don't speak and whose culture you nothing of then you need to set yourself clear standards and stick to them. Learn what it was about you that compelled you to spend these thousands of dollars on a fruitless search and then learn ways to ameliorate these shortcomings in yourself.

Here's a dead simple rule of thumb for you to follow: If you can't do it over there then you can't do it over here!
TRANSLATION: If you don't have relationships with gorgeous young women in your country then you won't over here.
Or, more realistically, if you don't have relationships with women over there then you won't over here.


Here's another dead simple rule of thumb: Learn to be able to understand what is real and what is fantasy. Stick with the real stuff and discard the fantasy.

NEVER excuse the dishonesty of others. As soon as you do that you line yourself up to be the victim of your dishonest interlocutor(s). That's what happened to you with Adate.

I will bet you a load of imaginary Internet dollars that Adate provided you with all the services for which you paid, additionally, I bet that you disregarded their own advice about how to deal with the profiles that you contact through their service. It was YOU who dealt with dishonest clients, you who contacted them without taking care of what you were doing. In fact, this was exactly what your hero Barbossa did! He made a specialty of ignoring common sense, good advice, and the instructions provided by Adate. As I recall he is still ploughing a solo furrow.

Yes, Adate has loads of fake profiles and yes, they make money from mugs spending money dealing with those profiles. But go look on any online dating site and you'll see the same things. The chances are that if you want to find a woman willing to marry a foreigner that Adate, these days, has the largest stock of genuine women anywhere on the Internet.

Barbossa, I have so much respect for you my friend.

Barbosa, you are the man.

And Barbosa is right on the money,
If you really wish to succeed in this endeavour fella you probably need to learn to be a better judge of character than you have proven to be in your first post here!

If you and I are both in-country in Kharkiv in about 18 months at the same time,
If this is when you plan to visit then you are indeed a pay per letter sites dream come true!!


If you get a minute check out Bruce's TR - Its not quite finished, however its still a pretty good read IMHO.

If I win the lottery I'll finish it this week if not I'll probably complete it when I retire!!! Until then I hope you enjoy the story so far!

You instinct not to meet her again is correct.  Drop her like a hot rock.

This.  Nik has acquired a certain reputation for pro-daters.  tom66ch decided, inconveniently, to come at all, thus she had to meet him to maintain the illusion.  The absolute best case is she was honest about her intentions--which I think we can eliminate based on the "marriage" talk before meeting--but just wasn't that into him in, in person.

One can find good girls and bad girls everywhere, of course, but a girl who likes you is going to plow the road for you (i.e. make it easier to meet, etc., and not constantly make up excuses.)

If there's too much drama, move on.  And always have a plan B.

B/B

Take it from B/B, always have a plan B.  (I think B/B always has 2 plan B's!)   :ROFL:

My, what a lot of assumptions, rumour, untruths and fantasy the Treadmill person posted sprinkled throughout his foaming-mouth rant.

I like Manny (and would love to send his kind Wife a lot of money if, in fact, I need her services in about 18 months),

Erm, nope.  :coffeeread:

please tell me where I'm being / have been 'dishonest'?

He likes Andrew....very much so  :ROFL:.

Like the about 18 and around 30 month plans.

Truth is, you'd not have got on a plane, even IF those stunning young girls you "chatted" to online were genuine and free to meet you with and had no boyfriends. Would you?

You spoilt your own fantasy pops.

Treadmilldude:
You write a lot of stuff with no knowledge of that of which you speak.  Your profile states that you have never got on a plane and visited the FSU as many of us have been doing for years.   Likewise you attack those who are actually living there with no concept of them or their day to day experiences within the FSU.  Quite frankly I find you insulting and ignorant of many facts in this regard!  If and when you actually visit the FSU for a  few years perhaps one might attach some value to your statements.

As to Andrewfl we have met in person and like anyone else here who has been visiting and/or married to someone from the FSU respect is given to those who have been to the FSU and know fact from fiction.  You do not qualify.
