Other Comments: BACKGROUND
From what I researched through http://agencyscams.com/index.html, the original company was Confidential Connections.com. Later it changed (names, owners???) and became UALADYS.COM. Around the start of 2008, this company split in a melodramatic feud between supposed owners in Ukraine! It became 2 identities, Ualadys.com and Uadreams.com.
You will see from the above addresses, the parent company is in USA.
Essentially, these companies continue to operate in a similar fashion.
Clients, either find the site OR are enticed to join the site by ladies (as I was from Ukrainedate.com!) and then you begin writing to ladies in their gallery.
ALL letters are translated, at a cost TO YOU, regardless if the lady speaks YOUR language! Services for the ladies are FREE!
You cannot have personal contact details or be in direct contact with ladies, apart from through the agency!
You pay for letters, photos and videos and they try to get you to send gifts as well, which they supply from their SHOP on the internet site, at 3 times the cost you can buy over the counter!
On the surface, one can feel protected and ensured that the ladies exist! After all, its through an agency!!!
In brief, I visited ladies in 2008 and 2009, via these 2 agencies.
Having written to ladies from both agencies at various cities around Ukraine, I thought that my chances of connecting with at least ONE would be assured!
The agency encourages men to buy their TOUR packages, which gives YOU accommodation, introduction and translation with the girls you nominate...All at considerable costs!!!
The girls put they search for (their age) to 55 or 60 year old men in their profiles, when they are in their 20's??? As an 'older' guy, having YOUNG girls write to me, claiming that I was what they were after as a partner, and age makes NO difference, is quite seductive and the rouse they use, ensuring you write and eventually visit!
This is when things started to go bad! 2 weeks before my departure in 2008, and flight, visa and package are arranged and PAID, I received letters from ladies. SUDDENLY, they found work, in another part of Ukraine, another country...They are finishing their study, exams, looking for work, they are visiting sick, dying or a family member JUST died, or their family member just went to hospital and they need to be by their side 24/7!!! or they are opening their business.....The list continues, and YES, it ALL happened to me in these 2 trips! And yes, I was going to Ukraine to meet...WHO??? So I went, as canceling incurs fees as well!!!
Then if you do meet with a lady you wrote to, then they take you shopping!...for clothes, perfumes etc Or they take you to expensive restaurants...Even if they can speak English, as with my case, they are not allowed to by the agency, who inserts a translator, so the agency makes a profit from that as well!!! And if you go to a restaurant, of course you pay for the translators lunch/dinner as well!!!
This is all 'nicely' written for the unsuspecting male clients in the agencies advert, which also includes spiels about age difference! So the agency can claim that its 'clearly written', both in the internet site adverts, and the agreement you sign BEFORE you meet with ladies...Then the agency will say...Why did you do agree?...
Also another reality for me was that when I met these girls, mostly, they did NOT know anything about me, though I had written to them for months before visiting!!!
Then there are the more adept ones that can lead you to believe there is a future, and milk you for all they can...in a scammer style.....Some will openly ask for money, others allow you to offer, then they put their hands in both your pockets...You will go home with empty hearts and pockets!
If you read the Gallina P episode on this site, it will give you an insight to what I experienced on my last visit. She is typical of the lady I met through this agency, and decided enough was enough! She is listed a s a scammer for good reason!
NOW, I will highlight this episode from the discussions I have had with the agency! They have essentially 'whitewashed' the situation, and now offer me some of the money I gave to this lady (Gallina P) so that I will remove my postings of her!!!
I will post my letters to the agency and their replies of how they deal with a 'scam' issue, and then claim they have a GOOD reputation!
I hope it will enlighten you and save you money and emotions!
So in this, I hope you will learn about these agencies through my experience!
I had written to this she wolf for almost 5 months and in the end she together with her translator put me in a world of grief!
I have received custom made pictures and video from her and i can tell you she is willingly into the scam and it doesnt seem to bother her one bit giving me sleepless nights!
I´ve send her a message thru VK.com confronting her but she is not responding to me even though she has read it!
Ghost from Netherlands
Look what Olia Simina (Servise Assistant, but probably man) wrote to me while back referring to this place!
We also read antiscam sites and are aware of those things that are written by some men. We can declare that the majority of the things they state there are not based on reasonable evidences. Anyone can join antiscam site and write whatever he wants.
We state that things that are written on that forums are misinterpretation of the facts and have no real evidences and ground.
There are many fake accusations on the account of UaDreams and UALadys and some other agencies as well. As you understand we are UaDreams and have nothing to do with other agencies.
We know those people who write bad things there. Only three of them are our customers.
Three of them are using many dating sites and feel it their life goal to throw mud on agencies like ours.
Our main goal is to help people to meet each other and if it didn't work for somebody we cannot take responsibility for that as relationship depends only on man and woman and we cannot interfere into their feelings.
Of course they do read antiscam sites and they will try to defend their operation. They will always try to deceive people with their excuses.
There is enough evidence on this thread and other antiscam sites exposing translation scam and goldigging. So why should anyone should tust these agencies antiscam policy?
ARLADYS.COM, the Argentinian branch/version of UALADYS.COM, has closed their operation.
This is what it says on their homepage:
Sorry, the branch office in Argentina is closed..
We regret to inform you that Argentina branch is being closed due to lack of interest. The global financial crisis has also hit the online dating world. We bring our sincere apologies for all inconveniences.

Love Stricken Men Send Millions to Internet Dating Scammers Posing as Russian Women Seeking Marriage -- Mail Order Brides Expert Warns About Popular Scam Pattern
Elena Petrova from Russian Brides Cyber Guide (http:www.womenrussia.com) says online dating scams are on the rise. Some scammers gangs from Russia managed to extort as much as $1.5 million from thousands victims, posing as Russian women seeking men for marriage.
Gold Coast, Australia February 12, 2004 -- Elena Petrova from Russian Brides Cyber Guide ( http://www.womenrussia.com) says online dating scams are on the rise. Some scammers gangs from Russia managed to extort as much as $1.5 million from thousands victims, posing as Russian women seeking men for marriage.
Russian Brides Cyber Guide is the home of the famous Russian Women Black List ( http://www.womenrus..list.htm), online since 1999. The Black List features names and photos used in the scams and provides links to anti-scam resources.
Due to her involvement with Black List, Elena has seen how Internet dating scams developed and evolved for the past years. Based on this experience, she authored the highly popular 'Anti-Scam Guide' that is distributed in a form of e-book and is constantly updated to combat the latest scam techniques.
From time to time, Elena is contacted by police, FBI and other authorities seeking to question scam victims. For example, last week the USA Embassy in Kiev, Ukraine, asked Russian Brides Cyber Guide to assist them in purchasing a license for Anti-Scam Guide to educate their personnel about fraud in Internet dating.
The modus operandi of Internet dating scammers is elegantly simple: they post pictures of pretty girls in large Internet personals and then contact thousands male members a day, offering love to the end of eternity. After a short correspondence, the 'woman' asks the man for assistance in buying visa and tickets to visit him in his country; the money to be sent via a wire transfer. The scammers use prewritten letters and photos of women that have no idea their photos are used to perpetuate fraud. To collect money transfers, they use low-income females, pensioners and single mothers, paying them a small fee (about $50) for each transfer they receive. The same set of prewritten letters may be used with different photos and under different names. Some photos are used under dozens aliases.
Its a pure fraud scheme with no real things involved: photos are of one woman and name of another; letters are prewritten by men who know what makes other men click, and sent by a computer program. The program creates a database from the letters arriving to a specific email address, and sends responding letters inserting mens names into specifically marked places. This is how Internet cons manage to correspond with hundreds potential victims at a time. After a while, a new name and set of photos will be used, and the same men who did not fall for the scam previously, may be contacted again and again.
Scammers have become a real problem for Internet personals. Every man who ever placed his personal ad online will confirm receiving dozens unsolicited requests from 'Russian women' seeking serious relationships.
According to Elena Petrova, such unsolicited contacts are nearly always scams: 'In large personals, anyone is invited to place a free ad; but to answer ads, one has to pay a membership fee. The average salary in Russia is only about US$100, with online personals charging about $30 for one-month subscription. Naturally, a real woman with her real salary cannot afford to pay this fee. Moreover, the fee is to be paid by a credit card, and it is only top-income people in Russia that have credit cards -- an average woman wont have it and wont be able to become a premium member of the site and send letters to men.
'I am often told by men that all Russian women ask them for money. When I start questioning where they met those women, it is always in response to a free ad they placed online. Those men cannot distinguish between real women and Internet criminals.
You were lucky to discover the deception in Ukrainian women: I was married to a Ukrainian for 4 years and 3 months. She was working towards divorce from day one, where there was a 17 year difference in our ages. She liar, thief and prostituted herself into marriage to me. I guess that you would call this legalized prositution as my wife. She is now a undercover drug informant in Las Vegas as she was rumored to have been caught in possession of drugs during our divorce. Karma has truly rewarded her.
I married a Philippina next as their culture teaches marriage for life and no divorce. Did I get a big surprise? No difference from my Ukrainian wife. Going through divorce and she is planning to marry another poor victum soon in Missouri.
My suggestion if you want to marry a woman in a foreign country, go to the country and meet her and plan on living there or never bring her to your country. Most modern countries protect women and these foreign women know this. This is her method to leave her country for the sole purpose to immigrate and the man is the pawn. These women would never divorce and treat their local country man the manner of which they treat a foreign husband. Foriegn men are consider less than human being.
Maybe I need to write an e-book on foreign women.
I am sorry that you couldn't find happiness with Ukranian women. The pint is that these agencies are big scammers including translation and goldigging scam. I alway advice to get local ladies. If not, you must be willing to travel and spend time abroad in order to make sure you have a good chance to get a good wife.
Please, next time don't give up your email address. You may get reprisals from scammers,
