Anastasia is definitely a total scam! The women on the site are not serious and are only looking to make money. Anastasia International's business ethics are so low that they employ a Convicted and Registered Sex Offender as their Tour Manager. His name is Stephen T. Sias. For proof that he is a registered offender and is employed at Anastasia International go to http://www.maine.gov/dps/Sbi/sor.html, and search the registry. You can also view the original charge and conviction information at http://www2.miami-dadeclerk.com/cjis/CaseSearch.aspx. Anastasia is actually using IMBRA to their advantage when scamming American men. Only in America would the government pass laws to protect foreigners before stopping convicts like this from defrauding the country's own citizens. What more proof does anyone need that Anastasia International has poor ethics and is defrauding American men than the fact that one of their managers is a Convicted Sex Offender.  They operate a myriad of different web addresses to avoid being detected as the scammers they are.  These addresses include, but are not limited to, Anastasiadate.com, Anastasiainternational.com, Anastasiawebscam.com, and Anastasiacomplaints.com.  These convicts are defrauding American men and law enforcement is doing absolutely nothing about it.

anastasiadate full of prostitutes and sexual imorality

AUTHOR: JohnrT - (United States of America)

This is just a short outline of what we will accept and what we do not in regards to ladies coming to our country of the United States of America! Any photos and any names associated to and or of, witnessed by or has done harm by committing any lewd act and gaining financially from this act is written below !

Applicants who aren't eligible for a visa include those who:
Have a communicable disease
Have a dangerous physical or mental disorder
Are drug addicts
Have committed serious criminal acts, including crimes involving moral turpitude, drug trafficking, and prostitution
Are likely to become a public charge
Have used fraud or other illegal means to enter the United States
Are ineligible for citizenship

The need to prevent criminals from entering the US has been one of the longest standing parts of US immigration law. In some form or another, criminal convictions have been used to deny entry to the US since the creation of the country.

What is considered a criminal ground for inadmissibility?

There are six basic criminal grounds for inadmissibility:
Crimes involving moral turpitude,
Violations of controlled substance laws,
Conviction of more than one offense,
Drug trafficking,
Prostitution and commercialized vice, and
Commission of a serious crime in the US for which the immigrant asserted immunity from prosecution.

What is moral turpitude?

Moral turpitude is one of the most amorphous concepts in immigration law. There is no definition of moral turpitude, although many courts have attempted to construe one, using phrases such as an act of baseness, depravity or vileness. While there is no set definition, it is clear that the moral turpitude involved must be part of the essence of the offense. A crime involving moral turpitude need not have resulted in a conviction for it to render a person inadmissible, and admitting to an act that has the elements of a crime involving moral turpitude is sufficient to bar entry. Where an actual conviction occurred, the only issue is whether the offense was a crime involving moral turpitude. Where there is only an admission, a number of other steps are required. First, it must be clear that the act admitted to could have been criminally prosecuted in the place where it occurred. Second, the immigrant must fully understand the elements of the crime to which they have admitted. Third, while the immigrant needs to say that he/she is guilty of an offense, he/she does need to admit to all of the essential elements of the offense. Fourth, the admission must be totally voluntary.

What type of controlled substances violations will make me inadmissible?

Beginning in 1952, convictions for violating laws relating to controlled substances became a ground of inadmissibility. Convictions of conspiracy and attempt will also render a person inadmissible.

What type of multiple criminal convictions will make me inadmissible?

Multiple criminal convictions will make a person inadmissible, regardless of the seriousness of the offense, whether the multiple convictions were the result of the same general enterprise. However, the person must have been sentenced to at least five years in prison. Offenses that are considered purely political are not included.

Do I have to be convicted of drug trafficking to be considered inadmissible?

Drug traffickers are inadmissible, even if there is no conviction, so long as the consular or immigration officer knows or has reason to believe that the immigrant has been involved in trafficking.

Do I have to be convicted of prostitution to be considered inadmissible?

A person coming to the US to engage in prostitution, or who has engaged in prostitution within ten years of their application for entry, is inadmissible, as are those who have made financial profit from prostitution. No criminal conviction is required, and the bar applies even to nationals of countries where prostitution is legal. Those who have been forced into prostitution are not inadmissible.

What is considered to be a serious criminal offense?

Those who committed a serious criminal offense in the US, claimed immunity from prosecution and then left the US are inadmissible. A serious criminal offense is any crime of violence, and driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol or reckless driving if the crime resulted in the injury of another person.

The following is information in regards to the IMB, Anastasia date does not adhere to IMBA. Please read below and the underlined will show that they are not in compliance. There is never any signature or background check made on clients, the ladies are never furnished this information, this is why they do no allow them to release personal information from the ladies on their site. They as the agency are not following the IMBA, these ladies at anastasiadate do not know who they are meeting.

International Marriage Broker Defined

The definition of International Marriage Brokers in IMBRA covers virtually all for-profit matchmaking entities, whether U.S. based on not, whose main business is the facilitation of dating or like services between U.S. citizens and foreigners. The definition excludes matchmaking sites whose principal business in not providing dating services between U.S. residents and foreign clients and which charges like fees for its services regardless of the gender or national origin of the client.

International Marriage Broker Obligations

Before an IMB can release the personal contact information of a foreign client to a U.S. client, the IMB must: Important!!!! anastasiadate does not follow conduct!

Search the National Sex Offender Registry to determine the record of the U.S. citizen, and disclose any information found concerning the U.S. citizen to the foreign client

Obtain a signed statement from the U.S. citizen revealing any current or past protection or restraining order, most criminal arrests and convictions, virtually all arrest or convictions for domestic or sexual offenses, multiple convictions for substance and/or alcohol abuse, the U.S. client's marital history (including the reason for termination of any prior marriages), the ages of any of the U.S. citizen's children under the age of 18, and a list of all States and counties that the U.S. citizen has lived in since the client was 18 years of age.

Distribute to the foreign national a pamphlet currently being developed by the U.S. government to educate foreign fianc(e)s about U.S. domestic abuse laws and resources for immigrant victims in the U.S.; and

Obtain the foreign national's written consent to disclosing her personal contact information.

IMBRA and Initial Contact With the Fiancee

The background information must be provided before the foreign client's personal contact information may be released to the U.S. client. Additional information must be provided by the IMB to ensure that the foreign national is aware of his/her (for simplicity's sake, we will adopt the female gender henceforth for the beneficiary, and the male for the petitioner) immigrant rights in the U.S. and her ability to defend herself against domestic abuse. At the consular level, all K1 visa beneficiaries will be asked during the visa interview whether they became acquainted with their U.S. citizen fianc(e) through an IMB, and if so, whether the IMB complied with the various disclosure obligations of IMBRA.

K Visa Interview Changes

The U.S. consul must ask the fianc(e) during the Embassy/Consulate interview whether an IMB facilitated the couple's relationship, and if so, the consul must determine the name of the IMB and confirm that the IMB acted in accordance with the new requirements regarding information gathering and disclosure, as well as pamphlet dissemination.

Discussion

The new rules will have a substantial impact on K1 petitioners who met through international marriage brokers. It should not affect petitioners who met though services like Yahoo! Personals which provide contact services with foreign nationals as an incidental part of their services. The fianc(e) will be asked in every instance whether she met her fiance through a matchmaking site. If she replies untruthfully and is found out (a very real possibility), she will be denied the visa and barred from ever receiving a U.S. visa of any kind. If she admits to the means of acquaintance, but can not convince the consular officer that the marriage agency provided her with the required disclosures, the visa may be refused.

For warn the agency is not in compliance at all or if so very little, their aim is not to make real relationships work, that develop to marriage, it is pure profit on their part. Stay away from the agency of this Anastasia date. Look at ones that offer what they fail to do! Check out allbeautiful.net. They have statement that they do back ground checks in accordance with the IMBA act!

So yes, I would say stay away from this anastasiadate, they are not honest, I will have more information in regards to other things that they are having full knowledge of and are not, I repeat not in compliance of or have any morals either!
