Charming Date: a legitimate Russian & Ukrainian dating site or not?Posted on November 15, 2012 by Krystyna in Ukrainian Dating Sites
I would appreciate greatly if you would be kind enough to advise me on the dating site: charmingdate.com ?
I am considering joining but leary it is a possible scam due to the charges associated with communication.
I have no trouble paying as long as it is a legitimate site.
Please respond at your earliest convenience.
Hello beautiful lady.
To the best of your knowledge is Charming Date and China Love a scam, and are they connected?
I am really interested in finding my soulmate, but there are so many scams out there.
Please help me.
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.
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.
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:
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
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!!!
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.
