Translator opens up about agency scams
« on: January 03, 2018, 10:44:35 PM »
An interview with a translator for a couple  major dating sites tells all. Surprisingly  she is not who you  would expect to find in a  Ukrainian dating agency.
But she is better than a hairy Boris.

Thank you Tom Cat for posting that. All through the 40 minute video it talked about 50-60-70 year old guys getting scammed by 20 something Ukrainian women working for a scam agency. How the women who were not sincere about hooking up with them (duh). I kept thinking about us old coots who were interested in women over the age of late forties to early fifties. The video answered that at the end. Also mentioned something about what I thought of, church girls (women).

I am leaving for Lviv Ukraine Sunday morning at 5 AM. Layover in Minsk. I should touch down at Lviv at 1:30 PM. Off to where, I don't know.

Here's another video from a  married Ukrainian woman's experience working for an agency.
I'm posting these links for any newbies that might not yet understand how these agency scams work.

Thank you and I will do. I'll be in Ukraine for 4 weeks. Then back to Batumi.
