Message #1:

Hello Krystyna,

To the best of your knowledge is Charming Date and China Love a scam, and are they connected?

Krystyna,

I just left a review about charmingdate.com for you. I can’t explain the dangers of this site and I hope you notify your readers. After 6 months I ended up by finding a site that said the girl I was dating for 6 months was in a civil marriage. I told charming date and they sent me these ridiculous passport photos knowing I don’t understand Russian or Ukrainian besides the fact your status is not on a Ukrainian passport.. I have all evidence if you’re curious.

charmingdate.com

Here is Brian’s CharmingDate review:

This site is one of the scariest and most expensive out there. Believe me when you enter the world of charmingdate.com you have entered a jungle. You pay for everything, the price per email is $8 whether you wanted it or not there is no way to prove you didn’t ask her to send you an email.

That is $8 for the email to her and $8 for the email you write back. they string you along sucking every last cent out of you. I just found out the girl I was with for 6 MONTHS was married.

I let charmingdate know and they showed me some bogus passport picture that said she was single, I had a Ukrainian friend check it out and he said the passport is fake just by how old it was. Charmingdate is the worst of the worst.

STAY AWAY FROM this site- please. I will make it my mission in life to let people know about this site and what they do.

The girls must get a portion of the money they rob from you. Talk about a den of thieves. Krystyna if you have any questions contact me.

Brian

From my personal dating experience, I can say that I have never used the services of this dating site. However, I have heard and read some reviews about the CharmingDate services. According to these reviews, a lot of customers are not satisfied with their dating services.

Here are three reviews I found on the Internet:

Review 1:

THIS DATE SITE IS FRAUD OF THE WORST kind it is designed to prevent you from ever making a connection with the lady , the ladies look nothing like their photos they cheat you lot of yur credits and never refund your money. you cannot mmake any kind of personal contact with the lady. I am sure some of the ladies are getting pais to chat with the men and i have good reason to belive that impostures us the pofiles of other ladies to chat and produce revenue for charming date. you would have to be absolutely stupid ta sray on this site. Simply put they are crooks of the worst kind

Review 2:

CharmingDate.com is a sister site to Chinalove.com. Both of these advertise to be dating sites. The websites promote women men looking to marry with someone from another culture and country. These companies make money when you go to a “chat room” with the lady or when you correspond writing letters. Funny thing is, with CharmingDate.com -–you can NEVER share personal contact information. NEVER! You can’t exchange phone numbers (their software blocks it!) you can’t share addresses (they won’t send the information from the lady or from you!)

After months on this site and a couple of thousand dollars later it is determined that there is no way to actually meet these ladies. You can’t call personally or exchange addresses! There is no way to communicate WITHOUT the service of the dating agency. And by the way, they tell the women not to do it for their “safety”, because a lot of Americans, “take advantage of other people.” This company has thousands of American members, and as I’ve learned through conversations with different women on the site, a lot of the men that these ladies talk to extensively, just disappear after time!

They disappear because the finally realize that they can NEVER have personal contact with the woman outside of the agency!!! Please help post this to anyone thinking about joining CharmingDate.com (Ukrainian and Russian dating site). Let me make this clear one last time: Anyone who joins this site will NEVER and I mean NEVER be able to talk in private via phone or letters with the women they are interested in . . . period. I have been a member for months and I’ve spent thousands, it is NEVER NEVER NEVER going to happen!!!

Review 3:

Good Site

Ok well I don’t believe the reviewer before me is actually a member. The site is expensive, for a good communication with someone it can easily cost you 10 times what another dating site such as eharmony or something will charge you, but at the same time if you are looking to marry overseas then you should be able to afford the cost of communication. The women are very beautiful for the most part and they are marriage minded. They are local women that have signed up with a marriage agency.

As for the credits it is not like you create an account and buy some credits and they are gone when you wake up, how it works is when the women want to contact you they have a free cupid note and then you can decide if you want to communicate with them. So it is very rare that the woman would just go straight to sending you an emf mail without any previous contact. The customer service can also be very helpful, a couple of months ago I accidentally clicked on a video and was charged 2 credits, I wrote customer service and they had to pull a couple strings but I did get my 2 credits back.

To sum it up here, yes it is an expensive site so if you are not financially stable then don’t bother because on average I spend around 300.00 a month. Also your first date would be an overseas trip costing upwards of a few grand.. But again if you are not able to afford this then you most likely wouldn’t even be qualified to bring them with you anyways. So if you cant afford these things then don’t toy with yourself or the women. Now it is not a scam these women are real and genuine. Just because it is expensive does not mean it is a scam.

    I went to meet the girl with whom I had correspondence in Odessa. I asked her to provide me accommodation and translator. I spent 60 Euros per day for a single horrible room and Euro 25 per hour for the translator.

    I realized too late that she understood enough English. But she made ​​it clear to me that she was not able to learn English alone. Maybe he wanted me to pay a teacher for her to learn the language before we meet again. I did not accept, but the joke cost me a lot.

    I do not know how to communicate to the site that the woman is not reliable and perhaps the agency. Their names: the woman Galina Balagura and the translator Lera. I do not know more.

    Avoid charmingdate at all costs. It is full of false profiles and people pretending to be the girl in the profile. I can vouch for this after 18 months scrutiny.

    Went to meet someone and she went “missing” claiming her daughter was ill ! Others have been intimate and then sent me an admirer mail or chat invite as if we have never met !!

    Celebrity and porn star photo’s used on some profiles, FACT, and the site does nothing about this.

    AVOID !!

  3. alain says:

    Bunch of raping thieves, stay away, or you will flush a lot of money down their toilet.

    Be warned!

  5. Josh says:

    CharmingDate.com is as fraud as AnastasiaDate or ElenaModels. Its just a business for them, they find girl who are ready to give photos and then they just sell these girls’ photos to you while you don’t get guys that you speak to translators. I understood already long ago that if you really have a wish to find a girl online better choose site where you spend less money. Unless you just want to sponsor the whole dating site. I use right now XXXXXXX.com and I am pretty happy with it. I just pay a monthly fee to the site and this includes already all kinds of chat (audio/video). Its easy in use and I found big amount of nice girls.

    Local agencies contract with model girls, they make up their pictures, and they do profile.
    You will never talk to her, you just chat commissioned by an agency pro chatter.

    He is usually a psychologist or psychiatrist will receive training in how to fool the men.
    Most people do not go to Ukraine.

    If a man travels to the Ukraine, the agency asks the model girl to go meet her.
    They teach him a lesson in some specific knowledge of the man.

    The models spend a few hours the man talk, asking for money, gifts, dinner or lunch,taxi.
    Then you will never see him again.

    She gives your phone number, which is not his!

    The money you paid in shares, together with the model daughter, and local agencies and dating sites.
    You pay a lot of hours of chat, email, and they make the money.

    You will never talk to the girl!You’re will talking to the agency pro chatter.
    Most of the dating site so it works in Ukraine.
    Everyone is enriched, you lose your money.

    The model girls having fun in the evening a disco BAR, and you chat with the agency!

    SCAM SCAM

    I have been on charmingdate for 3 months and I do not kno the whole truth of the dite being on the site is like being in the wild west . I have met teachers that are working at 11pm their time and I have never meet a teacher at a school till 11pm their tim each night. Their website name Victoria

    Yes they do use models on the site . The site did not screen a letter properly and I used the imiges to fing out dates times and places if the women as she is a international model and the company tells them not to send persional information to us.

    The sites network programs have falts so normal English words or anythi with a number can not be sent . their customer care help says its up to the lady to decide what persional information to give us but I had one lady who said the agancy says they will not let me do it

    In 3 months I have meet a few women and som are really suspicious. At the moment me and the customer care are arguing as their services is poor.

    If I had seen this before i joined it would of saved me alot of tim as money is not an issue.

    My country haz a few sites and its one monthly charge and you can use full use of it and get email addresses pho numbers ect our ones put this one to shame! !!!

    Cheers for reading this jesse

    Similar to the experience. The things described above experienced. Organized crime.
    Take care of boys! I’m a hard guy,I will not go there. Dark folk,and corrupt police officers.
    The consulátus not recommended! Czech, Hungarian, Romanian ok. No problem, have me many friends.

    Many people speak English or German.

      Hi Charles,

      thank you for commenting the Ukrainian Dating Blog.

      In part, I agree with you. In Ukraine, there is corruption and organized crime. Like in every country of the world which does not belong to the developed countries.
      But it does not give you the right to say that Ukrainians are dark people. In Ukraine, there are all kinds of people: good and evil, educated and stupid. I do not believe that only smart, kind and beautiful women live in Hungary.

      Regards,

      Krystyna

    i have just joined charming date site to give it a test following receipt of some emails to join them.

    i have already met my girl from odessa from a different site a few times and noticed that her profile suddenly appeared on charming date. her profile details were taken from a different dating site we both used to exchange email address and phone number.

    i seen her online on charming date site tonight at 22:50 our time in the UK so i bought some credits to go into the chat to speak with her. i asked her some questions which we both knew the answers from when i was last in odessa 3 weeks ago with her. the person who i was communicating with in the chat was 100% not the girl i speak with every day on email and also on the other site. so beware about it whether you are actually speaking with the girl you think you are. my test proved that i was speaking with someone else. i have no idea who.

    as further proof of something not right about the site, the brunette girl you see when you first visit their site, i know her and she didnt know about the site until i shown it to her. she is ok with it because she is hot.

  11. John says:

    Is there a way to find out if a woman is legit on charmingdate? Any way to do this from Ukraine? I have spent just a little and want to find out if the woman is real or not. No big deal either way, just want to know.
