Hi,

I am in my early thirties and single. I live in Canada.

Are there any websites which pre-screen women before presenting their profiles on the internet?  I hear of all these frauds. I was wondering whether there are any secure sources which guarantees against scams.

Let me know if you know any.....:D

Cheers

About what type of pre-screen you refert ? About reality of women, some site make control... but about what think the woman, it is almost impossible...

And in all case, 100% secure don't exist...

The more secure are local agency with office where woman need to present for post a ads...

With online form, some control are possible but very good hacker can use a false IP... and about copy of official document who prove identity, you can make a good work with photoshop... Of course, several scammer are low quality scammer and don't hide IP, make bad false document...

Now, a woman can visit a agency, fill a form, show his document and scam you...

The almost only one solution for not be scammed, it is to take your holliday in russia and search yourself a woman... and again, you are not protect againt visa whore and gold-digger...

In all case, it is not very different that meet a woman in own country... you never know what she think in reality... the only difference, it is more cheap to find a scam in own country that a foreign one... you spare the trip...

These horror story are only a little part of all story... several story have a happy end...

Lets not be too synical here.  There are some small agencies that screen their ladies.  Kevin Hayes at Khersongirls requires some basic checks with his honestagency (honestmarriageagency? .com members.  I know Roberto screens both the girls and the men that try and contact them at kissesfromukraine.com.

Yes, exactly.  Almost every one has a divorce under their belt before they get here, and now they want something fool proof???

Gemme a break.  Your odds are no better here than when you started out with your high school sweetheart.  Probably not as good.

What can screening really accomplish?  That the woman is not using a fictitious name, and perhaps does not have a registered marriage?  That she has not yet been caught red handed doing largely unethical things?  This is certainly not "secure sources which guarantees against scams."

Am I cynical?  Sometimes, but not on this one.  Whenever you deal with another person -- in business, in friendship, in love, your only protection is your own vision, wits, and common sense.  As a man said, "You want a guarantee?  Buy a toaster..."

first, welcome to the board.  While the possibility of a scam is very real, it really isn't all that much different than dating a woman in the USA/Canada being a bad apple.  So, my advice is to use a reputable agency and proceed with cautious optimism. ...And visit FSU, it is a very interesting place.

this is all a bunch of BS...YES there are many such agencies!  If I were to use any agency, I would ask: "do you personally interview each and every girl and will you personally vouch for any girl I select?"  The very best will know the girl, her family, and so forth!

I am not a big agency fan, so I personally know of only four - I could post them or PM them to you.

Matchmaking in Russia is a very honorable tradition,  unlike its USA-based counterpart.  Unfortunately most of the smaller FSU agencies only speak Russian, so you will need one of the several native Russian speakers on this board to help you.

Good Joke Kvinna.... i have just check the site... they search only in database from US... if a American criminal use a fake name and birth datum... he can post a ads without any problem... just change one letter in your name is good...

And how they check man from other country, and woman from FSU ?????

It is just a publicity ... nothing really serious...

I am with [user=140]ConnerVT[/user] here. If you want to have "checked" girl, be ready that she will want to check you. I can recommend one agency that offers background check for both parts - for men and women.

Bruno - on true.com (as I have heard) they check person by credit card, sure someone can use stold one. But mostly there are real persons with real cards. It is one of the reason why there are so little members-men.

Fiorella, they check via criminal database...

"Before True™ members are allowed to communicate with you, they are screened by Rapsheets.com, the largest database of criminal records on the Internet. Anyone with a felony conviction recorded in this database is automatically prevented from communicating with you."

More info about Rapsheets at http://www.rapsheets.com/business/info/aboutdata.aspx

And i have try to fill a ads for test... in the first form, they ask screen name ( not real name ), e-mail personal, country and state... when you submit, you have the following result :

"Thank you for your interest in True.com.  Because our top priority is the safety of our members, we require criminal background checks.  Unforunately, we do not have the access to perform a criminal background screening on you.  We are unable to allow you full access to our site at this time."

I have test with myself, with the data from a russian woman, with these of man from other country... the e-mail address was account from hotmail.com ...

Only for the fake woman from belgium, i have receive a activation link...

It mean that they check only the ip and e-mail address... for the fake ads of woman from other country, i have receive nothing and for the fake man, a lot of publicity for other dating site...

My conclusion, forget these site, it is something fake... a place for collect e-mail from man and profile of woman... maybe for place them on other own site or shell it...

PS : i have no need use credit card... "All women can chat and send email absolutely FREE! ... No credit card required."

PPS : Hey guys, never write to Natalie Thoumsin... it is me Bruno... :D:P:D... it is my woman test profile ;)

As Conner and I have alluded, meaningful pre-screening does not seem to exist in the MOB industry.  It seems they do not even guarantee that in some cases you are even writing to a woman, much less that you are corresponding with the pretty little thing actually pictured on the website.

The best thing to do is go see for yourself, even then you will have to have your wits about you.

Well the russian women also don't get guarantees they correspond with genuine men, who aren't married, not pervert, without criminal past and so on... Ah, also they do not even guarantee that in some cases they will not "suddenly die" and after few monthes will start again to flirt on the very same site

Hi,

I am in my early thirties and single. I live in Canada.

Are there any websites which pre-screen women before presenting their profiles on the internet?  I hear of all these frauds. I was wondering whether there are any secure sources which guarantees against scams.

Prescreening?  How reliable do you think this agency is going to be?  They are in a business of using girls to make money.  With this said, find a pretty picture and buy her email.  Send her an introduction letter and wait.  From my POV, that's the end of the agencies' involvement.

You are now in the process of "screening" these girls.  How do you know they are real?  You won't until you've visited her at least twice.

Others have hired PIs to make sure they are real and "unattached."  Good luck finding one "unattached."

The fraud part is of your own doing.  If you send money, don't attach strings to it and it will not be fraud.  During my travels, I've been to internet cafes where three or four young girls would sit together to read their emails from prospective suitors.  Many times I've seen them laughing as they print the Western Union code for them to pick up their fraud, er.. money.  Facts of life, simple.

I'm not going to get into what is the right or wrong aspect of this.  However, it is reality.

The way I see it, you want to find a real girl and establish some contact with her and determine if you two are compatible.  You'll be competing with Boris, Igor, and Joe. This is a lot of work on your part.  If you rely on agencies to do this for you, don't complain when you get "scammed."

And Canuck, this IS friendly advice.  Good Luck.

I know that their is no 100% way to screen the girls in any program. We require all ladies to come to are offices for photos and bios.. We work with them one or one, but it only means we have met them. It takes time to understand what she is looking for.

Haveing a good interputer to help you screen them will help you, but don't forget that she is also a Russian lady in most cases. So you should also learn how toget an interputer on your side.

Good Luck an take a look at LTP & GRB

CR,

Try this method:

1. Learn the Russian culture and tradition and, more importantly, the Russian language;

2. Think not of finding ladies on any websites; think not of placing personal ads in local newspapers or tv; think not of corresponding with someone you have never met before; waste no time or money to verify if she is a real person, a scammer or otherwise;

3. Think unplanned meeting and bypass any introduction or marriage agencies all together; and

4. Pick a college town in Russia and get invited to speak at the college or university there as a guest speaker at their various English/Student/Single Church clubs.

They might help find you a flat to stay at the monthly rate the Russians are paying; they might  invite you to stay at their humble homes for free for a few days (but make sure you bring some gifts for them); and, if you are as lucky as I am, you might get invited to attend the wedding of their families, friends, and/or relatives.

This way, you will get to meet and make many new Russian friends who will invite you to their tables at their humble homes; who will want you to meet their family members and relatives; who will want you to meet friends of their wives; and who will want  you to meet their lovely single unmarried and unattached daughters, aunts, cousins, and nieces, many of whom have never met a foreign man before in their lives; many of whom are not listed with any agency; many of whom still come from functional families (papa and mama are still married); many of whom are anxious to speak and practice their English with you, to show you the town, and to take good care of you during your visits; and many of whom have never thought of marrying a foreign man.

CR, it is gratifying to be able to meet many quality attractive single ladies this way under natural environment without being brokered or conditioned by any agency and/or having any translator present; ladies who have a sincere and genuine interest in you as a person and who would like you to write to them after you go back home and who would like you to come back again to see them soon; ladies who will try to save you money in every transaction you may have to do there; ladies who do not even know what "Western Union" is; ladies who will buy or give you presents instead and take you shopping to where the average Russians go shopping; and ladies who will not even let you spend any money on them.

CR, this is not easy, but it will be well worth it. It has been for me. Good luck to you!

All the best,

Erwin
