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!
At last a confirming that this is a scammer, I appreciate it very much.
And please do not worry I have not sent him anything.
Hi my honey Bengt!!!
I very much miss you, and oftenly dream in my fantasy i represent,
that you near with me. I very much would like to kiss your hands, a
breast, to nestle the body on you. I think of how your hands will be
slowly undress me and caress my body. I see recently erotic dreams
with you. I think, that these my dreams and fantasy happen because I
was very long alone, and now has got dialogue with you, you for me
kind and interesting and are final I would like to be with you, to
love you and that you loved me and was gentle with me. I hava
collected a lot of tenderness and love and I would like to give it to
you, my darling. I want, that our meeting was very soon. Time for me
lasts now very slowly and I do not know how to spend it. I would like
every second of life to be near you. For me it is very surprising, as
I could so to become attached to you though we yet have not spent
together any day. But probably it because I very often think of you
the darling, write to me, I very much miss and I wait, when we will
meet. Kiss. Kiss. Kiss. Yours Katya.

Subject: RE: ****SPAM**** Re: uadreams.com exposure
Lidiya sends me a lot of videos, and “where are you” letters. I have always been a little skeptical about her, but it is hard to believe she is in Germany. Can I help you in any way?
Lidiya went to Germany when I first started to write to her and it all sounded plausible. The subsequent letters from her there were hints of fraud where the agency cut and pasted a gift from an american shopping site when she was in Germany.
We could have continued writing had they removed her profile from the site, but by leaving it on the site and sending letters to you and a similar letter to my friend in Caracas 10 days after finishing with me being madly in love with an American (this was last october) is fraudulent for uadreams.com say that OUR LADIES ARE MARRAIGE MINDED AND PREPARED TO LEAVE THE UKRAINE. Lidiya P if still in Germany is obviously not and hence their claim is fraudulent. Further you could be writing to her for a year and wish to meet her, but if she was still in Germany this would be impossible. You and others could have even wasted money on a trip
On my http://bit.ly/ links which I can track I made traps and for this very reason I reckon that she is still working in Germany as a nanny
In other words if this is the case THIS IS A FRAUD. Counters on my blog sites would suggest that she is Augsburg
Are you writing to her. I don´t want you to spend any money on letters to her if you are not. I did publish most of her letters on a blog which the agency did not like and out of respect for her and hoping that she also is an innocent party I removed them with the exception of the one that you saw on http://www.itccommu..tions.net
Yes I would like to get to the bottom of this but I believe that as VISA repaid me my money they know it is a scam operation but are still prepared to earn money from it
Have you read my friends Calvins experience http://www.ualadyscam.com - at one time ualadys and uadreams were the same company. I met Lidiya via uadadys
It would seem so! 365 days (almost to the day) after VISA stopped me buying emails from uadreams.com to carry on writing to Lidiya P I hear from this person. What a suprise! I wonder how many other people are writing to her at this present time.
I have been looking for Lidya P. at UADREAMS and it seems deleted; however her picture may be still in use for scamming purposses. Perhaps another letter suggesting to give her a gist like the letter I received a year ago.
It is bad news that UADREAMS and UALADYS are still scamming naive peple. I will be on guard again.
RealMadrid from Spain
It would appear that they are fraudulently using her name sending letters purporting to come from her to the person D that contacted me
What made him think that something was not right was a 3 page letter starting 'Dear Jeff'
He queried it and and they replied that it was a mistake!
Maybe one day we will get the truth of this particular story
hasta la proxima
RealMadrid from Spain
Further to your information I Googled just now 'Lidiya P #8135'
Normally it would come up with the uadreams.com profile page of her but it did not so I guess your information is correct.
D Mentioned giving gifts so he could have been initially hooked with the circular sent to you in October 2009 see example here http://bit.ly/8OG1NH
He has said that he wishes to remain anonymous which is why I refer to him a D. In the light of what is happening I have given him the email address of the fraud squad to contact if he finds out that he is a victim. With VICOZ that would make 3 of us
There is something strange indeed. Her profile was probably taken by a Boris or by someone within the agency. It is strange that you find Lydia P profile removed and still people are receiving spam or letters with her name and pictures. This again prooves that UADREAMS is a scam. Those arre the agency mistakes that expose themselves.
after you mentioned that the profile was missing I did manage to locate it on the site by going to > Donetsk branch (whose address they do not publish) > to one of their ladies from Donetsk > then changed that ladies number in the url to 8135 and the familiar photos and profile came up!
I notice once again they they feature good testimonials about the Donetsk Office which makes me think that this office has had a lot of bad publicity?

This is one of their scummy profiles that they use to fish for victims. I gave my e-mail to this 'girl' who turned out to be their operator, that's how they got my e-mail addy:
