What is the Anti-scam program?

All agencies that are in the field of international dating suffer from scammers. Men become more and more suspicious towards women from Russia and other countries of the former Soviet Union, and many have been turned off completely once they have had such a negative experience.

Our aim is to help legitimate services to separate themselves from fraudulent ones.

There is a need for an unbiased source that will help in solving scam related problems. Any honest agency may have problems because of scammers. The most important thing is to inform clients about possible scams, and react timely to their queries. What is missing is a standard procedure of solving such problems.

We list all agencies that have joined our program. It is free to join. There are some rules that those agencies should follow, and if the agency does not obey the rules, it will be removed from the listing. If there is any conflict with a client regarding fraud matters, we will help the agency in solving it.


Who can join?

Any dating, introduction, matchmaking or marriage agency that is located in or deals with Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and other countries of the former Soviet Union.


Why join?

Our source is destined to become one of the most popular starting points in the search for a reliable dating service. It leads to your credibility.

If you are not listed here, you are losing customers who could buy from you. Many men are looking for a reliable service from a particular city to help them in organizing their visits etc. They could have found you here.


When should I join?

The earlier, the better.

The default listing is according to the ID number of the agency. It means that the earlier your agency joins the program, the closer it will be to the top of the list.


How to join?

There are 3 important steps:

  1. Read the rules
  2. Make the necessary changes to your web site
  3. Fill in the application form

Once we have reviewed your site, it will be added to the listing within 10-14 days.
