Once I asked myself how many dollars I have spent but that was probably an outstanding sum.
The truth is that Ukraine is a place famous for being a birthplace for the most beautiful women in the world. And still in spite of military conflict on the Eastern part of the territory and low economic changes today Ukrainian online romance is the top of popularity.
Referring to the events of two years, last years had less constraining factors than at the beginning of all that. More men from abroad did not cancelled their trip to Odessa but even to plan more visits for meeting their beloved.
Marriage agency directors supposed that due to military tensions less men would be interested to visit country of Ukraine, however still even such a hard situation did not influence the influx dating sites members and tourists.
What is the central line of dating advertisement in Ukraine: a real picture of a happy couple, he is from the Western part of Europe, adult and noble but with some seedy features in his look and she is young and beautiful but with sad and hard past projects.
Frequently women take this chance as a magic happy ending of all their suffering: suddenly prince comes to her place and takes her away from pain and poverty to his rich golden place. However they cannot be realistic, they tend to close eyes to what foreign men indeed offer to them and as a result to be a scam victim.
This is a story of a Ukrainian girl Svitlana who agreed to tell her story about online relationship with foreign man. She started to communicate with a soldier from the United States of America, they kept their correspondence for some months and lately Svitlana invited him to visit her. Thereafter she received a message from the US military (she was convinced it was) requiring the airfare to Ukraine. And for sure there were offering to pay for the ticket during four days.
However the number of male scam victims in Ukraine is much larger. Scammers ingeniously lure men from the US and Western Europe to come to meet Ukrainian women.
Let us mention that online dating websites offer free membership for females but not for males. And most of all men gives up with paying hundreds of dollars for chatting or texting but never seeing his other half in real life.
One man from Norway complains that he used to try many of such websites and he emphasizes that about 95% of dating agencies are scammers with fake female profiles. Their girls want gifts and flowers or any expensive surprises. You can end up with this, you can buy an apartment for yourself instead of playing that games.
As a rule all scammers used the same strategies and schemes that never let them down and offer a winner position. But today many experienced and reputable dating agencies implemented modern systems for defense by monitoring and detecting scammers.
They fight with the huge amount of unsatisfied men who go back to their homes with nothing, feeling lonely and counting the wallet balance. Still the number of those foreigners who do arrive for building up relationships with their beloved in Ukraine is not too big.
