Are Bride Forever and/or Golden Bride legit?
I have received email solicitations from two other Russian dating sites besides Anastasia and I'm wondering if either is legit. They are called Golden Bride and Bride Forever. Each appears slightly different from one another and from Anastasia, and has some difference in features and format. Also, I am under the impression that AmoLatina and AsianDate are affiliates of Anastasia, and therefore also scams. Do you know if this is the case?
I have never heard of any of these sites, but here are my observations based on a quick look...
bride-forever.com looks a TINY bit more legit than goldenbride.net because not every girl on the home page is a smokin' hot swimsuit model. But one of the most fundamental rules of identifying and avoiding scammy agencies is to simply avoid agencies that offer pay-per-letter/pay-per-chat services, which both of these sites offer.
Sites like Golden Bride with profiles that look like they belong in Playboy who offer pay-per-letter, pay-per-chat, etc. are a bad gamble.
Your instincts about the other two sites (AmoLatina.com and AsianDate.com) appear to be right on... They appear to be Anastasia affiliates. At first glance they look a lot like Cupid Media sites (UkraineDate.com, RussianCupid.com). But if you do any clicking around on these two sites (AmoLatina.com and AsianDate.com) you'll encounter the Anastasia connection.
For example, for both these sites (AmoLatina.com and AsianDate.com) click on "About Us" and you'll see "Welcome to AnastasiaDate Family!"
So to summarize guidelines from other parts of my site, be concerned about any site or agency:
- That offers pay-per-letter/pay-per-chat services
- That has MANY very hot women
- Where really hot women initiate contact
Any site where all three of these are true is definitely a scam, but the first one is the most important. Just use sites that have unlimited communication for a period of time.
Hope that helps!
