I wrote 60 pay to write and recieved a similar number of pay to read letters to someone purporting to be Juliya Igorevna Nastych, total cost $1,000. Also chatted about one hour per day for one month, cost $1,800. The person I was talking to seemed warm and affectionate, honest and kind. Nothing could be further from the truth as it turned out. She invited me to spend two weeks in Odessa Ukraine, so I traveled there in January 2012, cost of airfare and hotel $5,000. I also lost two weeks wages because I took unpaid vacation leave.

On my arrival there she refused to meet me, to answer the phone, or explain why she suddenly changed her mind. It was -20 degrees C which made it quite an unpleasant experience apart from being ripped off.

There were many red flags which suggested a scam was in operation but I didn't put it all together till the end.

Warning signs were:

1) She refused to give me her private email saying she did not have access to email. [continued below]....

2) She spoke to me once on the phone through an interpreter, then after that stated that her phone didn't work (she blocked me)

3) I had a friend from Ukraine call her and leave a message. She blocked my friend after that.

I complained to the Anastasiadate.com and after a lot of run arounds was told I should have paid $70 to guarantee my date. That service is only available if  you arrive on a tour arranged by Anastasiadate.com by the way.  

Anastasiadate management were completely unhelpful in resolving this issue.

My anlysis indicates that Anastasiadate paid Juliya to talk to me then when I arrived she was scared to meet me. The reason is I mentioned that I could find her through friends in the state security apparatus if Anastasiadate cut off our communication. She hid from me for two weeks, never going online, then when I returned home, she was back on line the next day, just refusing to communicate with me.  

Anastasiadate sucked $3,000 out of me in one month. I lost much more in airfare, hotel and lost wages. Juliya is doing this on a regular basis and the agency is aiding and abetting her. If it sounds to good to be true, it is. I feel like an idiot to be taken in by these crooks.

I welcome any attorney who wants to go after these bastards get in touch with me. Also I would go to the police or DA if so advised. I can supply pictures of Juliya if interested. I checked her pictures against Google picture search and sure enough she exists on the net under another name.

I would advise anyone using Anastasiadate to be very careful. After one or two letters, arrange for the girl to speak to you on the phone and get her contact information. Most wil not agree to this, so you have identified the most obvious scammers for little cost. if she will go provate with you, well, that does not mean she is honest, but hopefully at least you won't pay so much as she scams you!

#1 General Comment

anastasiadate dishonest, supports scammers

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.


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!

Failure to Listen = Failure to Learn (You Were Warned By Me About This)

AUTHOR: TruthIsNowTold - (USA)

I warned you over and over and over again on the complaints board and you totally ignored my warnings believing and thinking that you knew more than me.  You thought I was talking from a lack of experience but I spoke from several years of experience friend and I know enough of the scam ways of anastasiadate having seen their scam and corrupt activities for some time now.

I am truly sorry you were scammed and my heart really does go out to you but this is what happens when you fail to listen to those with experience and wisdom who were trying to protect you with their instructions.  As for the girl she has been on the site for quite a while now and I saw her from time to time over the extensive period of time (really years) that I have been on the site and most likely is working for the site since many of the ladies on the site already have boyfriends or are married already and chat with men as a source of income.  The longer one chats then the greater will be the percentage of the cut that one will get from their chat time with a man.

Again You were warned not to be fooled with anastasiadate so that you would not have to learn the hard way but let that be a lesson to all:  Failure to Listen = Failure to Learn
