Anastasia Date, a new name and location for the notorious Anastasia Web, is an international introduction and tour service that has a history of consistent complaints and supposedly fraudulent activity. They have changed their name and website name multiple times. Explore the internet and read for yourself the many, many reviews and user testimonials discussing the scams performed by Anastasia Web and/or the members of the website. Anastasia is on Black List of companies to avoid.

Anastasia Date provides a multitude of services including correspondence with foreign ladies, phone translation, email, chat, tours, and other features. Although their website and general aim seem legitimate, be wary of the possibilities of fraud. Again, do your own research online and explore the available information taken directly from people who have used the service themselves.

Signing Up
Joining for a free membership at is quite simple. They require you to enter you full name, email address and birthday before directing you to your own free member page. This website hides its pricing structure from you until you join their service for a free membership.

The ultra-basic profile page at Anastasia Date does not allow you to express your full personality like many other websites. Although you are going to base your interest on correspondence mostly, it is important for the women to have the ability to know more about the man they are talking to. A short, simple page will ask you simple questions about yourself and who you are looking for. This suggests that their matchmaking feature has very little chance of working well.

Anastasia Date provides its members with a very solid variety of services that essentially encompasses everything you would need for success in international dating. The website focuses on giving American men the tools to communicate with Russian and Ukrainian women, so they naturally offer services in email correspondence. They also offer ways of communicating through online chat as well as video chat. For phone correspondence, you can call her through "instant-call," reserve a time to speak with her at a later specified date, or have her initiate the call to you. The feature allowing the foreign women to initiate a calls to the American men is a unique feature.

This website also features the "Date-a-Lady" service. With this service, the employees at Anastasia Date will make arrangements for you to meet your new friend in her home country. You will need to provide your own transportation, but will coordinate the meeting with your foreign beauty and bring in a translator. The translator will work with you for an hour and a half; any time after that will be charged to your account at a per-hour rate.

Anastasia Date offers tours each year to different destinations in order to introduce American men to the foreign ladies in person. They host socials where the men and women can intermingle in a casual environment with food and drink. Although they have pictures of their past tours on their website, they do not show upcoming tours or prices. At the top of their tour web page, they suggest calling their office for more information., as mentioned above, also provides the common services any international introduction company should offer. They have a gift service through which you can send presents to your new found friends and they offer apartment rentals in their destination countries. The site will also help with a fiancÚ Visa if you find your true love overseas.

The pricing structure at is hidden until you join for a free membership. The prices are based on a credit system and each action you take will cost a certain amount of credits. It seems that they should explain this before making you join. At your free homepage, click the "Purchase Credits" under the "My Account" section.

The site offers many different packages of credits at different prices and discounted amounts. The smallest package they offer is 20 credits for $15.99 (80 cents per credit). The largest package they offer is 1000 credits for $399.00 (40 cents per credit). Between those two packages are five other amounts of credits for different prices and different amounts per credit. This system will allow you to custom-tailor your membership so you don't spend more money than you need to. If you refer someone who eventually joins the site and pays for credits, you will receive the same amount of credits they purchase upon joining.

The main problem with Anastasia's style of practice involves their "letters of introduction." Many people have reported being scammed due to this system. The risk is that a woman will write an introduction letter intended for a very broad and simple type of man, then that letter will be sent to many different men in hopes of persuading them to respond. If someone responds, makes money. If all of them respond, Anastasia Date makes even more money. Hence, the possibility of a scam.

While the final decision is obviously yours, we highly recommend avoiding They seem to run a quality site with a strong series of features, but their track record is hard to ignore.
