Statement
I was a male member of this site for several months and a subscribing member for about 3 months.  I subscribed because I believed ladies contacting me were real.   In all I have spent several hundred NZ dollars at AsianDate.  I also had a subscription at a "sister" site ChinaLove.com and group losses are estimated at a little over NZD1000.

Because I was receiving so many letters of interest letters from many ladies, I updated my profile to provide more information about me; also subtly containing ways to contact me without them having to pay 10 "Credits" each time.  In my replies to ladies, I pointed out how to identify the contact details.  At no time did any lady I replied to, contact me other than via the AsianDate website.  Several ladies had sent me over 500 emails, many over 100 and a lot over 20.  I believed these ladies were genuinely trying to connect with me.  1 "Credit" is approximately NZD1.00. 

At no time did I receive a reply that was sensible and clearly in response to questions I asked or gave information about me.  One of the ladies I exchanged several emails with had a very distinctive dress.  Another lady contacting me also was wearing an identical dress.  By this time, I was becoming suspicious because not one person had responded to me as I had requested.  The identical dress issue raised my level of awareness and I began noticing other similarities and noted them.  These similarities were becoming so common, I downloaded many images from ladies that had contacted me; also I saved the profile in PDF format.  Having this data made it relatively straightforward to peruse many images in a reasonably short time and I observed many suspicious profile photos.  I am unsure about whther the "ladies" I was in contact with are real or merely models and system generated messages.

I wrote a letter of complaint to AsianDate on 23 April, stating my concerns and demanding a refund of all money I had paid to them.  I sent images to demonstrate the repetative objects and pointed out the great distance between the ladies' stated home city.  I also raised the matter of receiving hundreds of emails from some ladies but I had not replied.  I stated a belief the letters were system generated and queried the high cost to a lady sending me over 500 messages (over 5000 NZ dollars).

There were a series of exchanges between AsianDate Support and I.  The person repsonding admitted because they have so many members to manage, they use "an agency" and the items I had told them I observed several times may have been provided to help the ladies look their best.  I replied and sent specimen images and also the PDF analysis summary of selected repeat objects (about 40% of those observed) so they could understand my concerns.  They also admitted some ladies are able to commnicate with men for nil cost.  Other issues I had raised were identical approach letters from ladies, including "typos".  They at first expressed concern that this had happened but later replied that ladies can access certain standard approach letters and send to me based on parameters such as age, country and the like.  They declared the specimen messages contained errors and they would tell their IT people about this.  I can send the draft copies of the letters I emailed to AsianDate support people.  I have not attached nor uploaded these to Mega but would forward them if I am asked.  Images I sent to them were stripped of identifying lady member data and were grouped by common occurrence.

I believe AsianDate and possible their "sister" sites operating on the same revenue model are a scam.  I found many such alegations at several internet sites dealing with dating scams.  My reasons for believing this are the unusual replies from ladies and not being able to progress communications but principally the many suspicious photos and multiple use of "props".  I have downloaded at toal of 2,135 images and 521 profiles.  The uploaded files referenced at the beginning illustrate 35 No. repetitions of supicious items e.g. 45 ladies observed in the same bathtub, 24 ladies sitting on the same "throne"-like chair when 15 were from Mumbai and 9 from New Delhi (>1400 km apart).  I suspect there are some legitimate female members but I supect there are many photo-models.

The images have been scanned manually, "by eye".  Several are grouped because of identical backgrounds and are therefore high probability the same.  A professional analysis using AI Scanning Technology would no doubt reveal far more than I have managed to identify.  I have not for example grouped images of certain outdoor environments e.g. distinctive "garage doors", paving, trees and the like.  The anlysis I did has taken well over 100 hours to do and there may of course be some errors in judgement.  I believe there is much evidence of "photoshop" type editing, colour changes and even persons suspected as being superimposed into a background.  Digital analysis will reveal much.

My suspicions are high because AsianDate did not specifically answer or respond to my questions.  If I am greatly mistaken, this is the biggest blunder of my life.  But I have shared my "evidence" with others and asked for their objective opinions.  Without exception, they were supportive of my suspicions 

The reason I am reporting this here, today is I have read so many other people reporting many thousands of dollars wasted at AsianDate.  My losses compared to these people are quite small.  I realised quite quickly that things were not right.  One man I have been in contact with has lost over USD5000.  Some reported losses are far higher. 

I welcome a response and request for further information.  I have only uploaded the more obvious files.  Some other events are lower frequency and some profiles are untainted; hence I believe it possible some lady members are legitimate.
