The guy spent $25,000 with the company.  That was his basis for experience.  Perhaps that could also be the source of his imputation?  (Why confuse yourself with the facts?)   

If a man sent $25,000 to a Nigerian scammer, does the experience make him knowledgeable about Africa?

IDK, if a guy spends 100K on his divorce to a woman from Moscow, does it make him an expert on all things related to Moscow?

Okay, let's examine Tom's brilliant analogy here. 

Knock yourself out.

If a man shoots himself in the foot, and eventually has it amputated due to gangrene, does this make him knowledgeable about surgery?

I hope that you like that one better.

People ought to take responsibility for their foolish actions, no?

My analogy is the little boy who goes to the county fair, sure he can win the big prize.  No matter how many times he plunks down that quarter, he still doesn't know how to win the game.  Because by playing by the house rules, he will always lose, unless through blind luck he manages to get the Kewpie Doll.

The guy spent $25,000 with the company.  That was his basis for experience.  Perhaps that could also be the source of his imputation?  (Why confuse yourself with the facts?)   

So, on one side, we have a guy who has spent $25,000 as a customer of this agency.  And on the other side we have a guy who has never been a customer of theirs questioning what knowledge he has of the company. 
With the information that member provided the only experience that this guy (BudE) could possibly offer is how to spend a vast amount of money and have nothing to show for it - like a gambler who consistently loses!!

However, it would be my feeling that the member in question got exactly what he was looking for when he was spending his "hard earned" - it would be difficult to conceive that he hadn't noticed he was getting nowhere but just kept on shelling out coin day after day!! And I have no doubts that the company felt that they gave him good value for money as well - as far as they were concerned they provided him with $25,000 worth of fantasy and sweaty palms every night!!!

I would suggest that we can only really determine the quality of his experience if he was being honest with us - also I recall he mentioned that he had recovered the funds - yeah right!!!!

but I recovered all!
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!

The title is:  Anastasia Date, scam or real?

I think it really depends on the man's expectations.  He can go on a date with many of the women if he has deep pockets.  Will the relationship lead to marriage?  I would say in most cases no, although we have Sashathecat, AJ, and previous poster Kievstar who all married A. Date women. 

That said here is my favorite profile for this week.  I don't think she's of age to get married yet, but a jetsetter from NYC or London, younger than 30, might have the time of his life with her!!

Here is a general rule that, sadly, holds true more often than not:

If you write to a drop-dead gorgeous girl and she ignores you, she is sincere.
If she responds, she is a scammer.

The moral of this story is that we guarantee our failure by the choices that we make.

Really good post Tom. Succinct yet totally accurate.

In my experience, ADate is not 95% scammers 5% authentic girls. Rather, 98% scammers 2% authentic girls. For this reason, I would never recommend anyone to ever use ADate / RussianBrides

1) VK 2) Eduard 3) Mordinsons in Kharkiv  are what I would recommend    Eduard is probably the very best method, and in the end the fastest, cheapest only guaranteed-to-work method. If I was advising anyone and I could only advise one source, it would be Eduard. In the end, in my heart, I am pretty sure I will use Eduard and not Mordinson's. With Mordinson's, there might be a 2% chance of failure. With Eduard, IMO there is a 0% chance of failure, if you are like me, completely satisfied finding a wonderful, loving caring woman who is a 7, but a very kind, loving, faithful 7.

I might add, IMHO, it is a mistake to look for women who are only 9's and 10's. I would advise to look for mainly 7's, and every once-in-awhile an 8. But 90% of the time look for a 7.

How do you think that this relates to a Ukrainian girl with "Victoria's Secret caliber legs and stomach?"

Your memory is failing you Tom. Go back and read what I wrote about Alisa (the 9, VS caliber legs and stomach) relative to what I wrote about Marina (the 7) and why right now I am communicating much more with Marina (the 7).

No you write to Marina because it what feels mostly right for this point in time. Sure she is attractive but beauty is never lasting for life or ever. It is her feelings and heart for you that is the key to the success here.

By the way again the mindset of putting girls in boxes for how hot they are is really only a sign of your self image not being able to get you to a 9 and be happy for life.

My sanity is failing also; I'm hallucinating that you wrote about her legs wrapped around you all night long.
