It seems that some people want to take a foreign country or take several foreign countries and use them for their own moneymaking and profiteering purposes. Such is the case with the site known as A Belarus Bride owned by Greg & Nina Zaytzeff.
These are indeed sellers of flawed fantasies and fairytales. Their site presents the picture of so-called "perfect bliss/happiness and perfection" when in fact this can be far from the truth. The site known as consumerfraudreporting.org has something that contradicts this so-called "perfect picture" that Greg & Nina Zaytzeff wish to paint:
"Russian Dating Scams
Beautiful Russian Woman Want to Fall in Love With You?... or Your Money?
....read on, and find out about the bizarre world of the Russian online dating. [continued below]....
are not always what they seem!
What is the scam?
....The Russian woman is just interested in a green card,....she will divorce you as soon as she receives it (2 years after marrying you and arriving in the US)
....She's Real, and Will Marry You... But Divorce you Within 3 Years
Life in Russia is no picnic. Except for the those at the top, life is generally very hard. Of course, many people would love to live in the west, so she'll marry you... but after receiving her green card, she'll divorce you....There's presumably no way you can guard against this - anyone who is patient can perpetuate this scam anywhere."
Note: Let me add this that it does not necessarily have to take 2-3 years as the above quote mentions but it can take longer and in fact it can indeed occur. Here is the proof from a consumer antifraud site that said this:
"MOB success story or otherwise? (MOB-Means Mail-Order-Bride)
Sun Jun 08, 2008...
man marries mail-order-bride he met over the internet in 1995 and his 'success story' is celebrated in a news article may 20, 2002.
"It was absolute chemistry," said Natalya, who was living in Blagoveshchensk, Russia.
Three months later, she traveled to the United States with her young son. Mathew and Natalya were married April 2, 1995."
the same man promotes a blog to share his horror story with other men:
"Not once in almost fourteen years did this woman ever say she was sorry for creating even the smallest problem, let alone any major ones. This woman could never admit that she made a mistake, that she could have done something, or for that matter, anything better, so as to improve and enhance our relationship. She was selfish to the nth degree, not just with money, but more importantly, with her time and her ability to love, respect and cherish what she had been given. She placed no value on my life and efforts. Our family suffered immensely and became subjugated to her poor management of time. She could never manage her time to take care of her responsibilities towards her husband and children. (She had one child, I had two and we had none, thank goodness! I did love her son and that love was returned with vitriol, which he learned from her.) She came first in everything, placing her family next and her poor husband in a dismal last place! She thought the relationship was just about her and never stopped for a moment to realize that our marriage was about US. She abused me, both emotionally and financially and, in the end, was characteristically brutal and uncaring. She never once stopped to realize the emotional and financial damage she inflicted on me. She humiliated me in front of our friends and customers, made a mockery and spectacle of our marriage and divorce!"
This does not have to occur only with American men alone but also can occur with any man of any nationality and I do not care what so-called "counseling services" some places/sites provide they are not a cure-all for all marital issues with these mail-order-brides and that is a fact and let no one tell you otherwise.
However using the American issue as an example here is another fact that goes against the thinking promoted by Greg & Nina Zaytzeff. The site consumeraffairs.com says this:
"In fact, guys tend to be such suckers for this fantasy....from hot girls called Tanya or Olga. Accompanied by alluring photos, the messages promise eternal friendship, physical relationships or marriage....Surfing around some of the sites I had to wonder about the motives of some of the women involved, however.
Any American guy looking to marry a woman from a poorer country is always going to have the doubt at the back of his mind that she's only going through the whole ordeal to get her hands on his bank account.
Thanks to the Beatles, we all know that money can't buy you love...
....Asking for trouble
Many Americans who marry foreign wives do end up getting scammed, cheated or abandoned once her visa comes through but they've usually invited trouble on themselves."
So don't be fooled by the foolish fantasy and the fairy tale that sellers like Greg & Nina Zaytzeff from A Belarus Bride try to sell. Sellers like these will tell you anything especially when it comes to putting dollars and cents into their pocket.
There is a "one day" no matter how long it takes that eventually comes when the fantasy ends and the failure begins and the so-called "sweet dream" eventually becomes a living nightmare.
Take note of these words very well but...He who fails to listen will eventually learn the hard way.
