Romance Compass and many more

I am so sorry to have to agree with the other people who have been on this site, only to have their hopes and dreams shattered by the fact that the girls on this dating forum are mainly bogus. I am truly saddened that I have again experienced this, but it is not just this site. It is quite rampant within these Eastern European dating sites. The girls are truly wonderful, but they get the $ signs after the first few weeks when it hits them that they get a percentage of the chat and letter price. Yes, I think that they really started off thinking the most pure and genuine thoughts about finding a new and wonderful life, but it all ended up a bit pear shaped. Maybe if the site owners just charged 2 credits per letter and 1 credit per min for live video chat we not only could afford it, but the girls would get more business.

Bob's Comment:

That's a pretty enlightened perspective, that many of the women involved in the pay-per-letter / pay-per-chat agency scams probably started off with pure motives but become corrupted by the profit potential.

But seriously, site owners charging less is far from the solution!

The REAL solution, in my humble opinion, is to inform as many men as we can that pay-per-letter / pay-per-chat is very nearly NEVER a straight up honorable operation. And, that's the first advice I always offer on such matters! If you don't want to be scammed, don't use pay-per-letter/chat/video. It really is no more complicated than that!

But when you say the site owners could earn more by cutting prices I think you're kind of missing the point... You are so right about concluding that the pay-per-letter women become corrupted by the money, but WHO is the source of the corruption? It has to be the site/agency owners. If you really want to get down to the villian on the scene, it's them.

The only way for this two work for the man seeking a foreign spouse is to just avoid those kinds of operations. Use ONLY free or unlimited-contact-per-period sites.

Funny, at pay-per-letter sites unbelievably gorgeous women contact 50+ year old, overweight, economically-challenged men, but on sites where you pay for unlimited communication for a specified period of time such men only receive messages from 45+ year old "regular" women.

Hint: The unlimited communication sites are "real". Use them!

I agree

Use only a site that does not charge per communication. If there is incentive to keep communicating, why do you think you will ever end up meeting this girl? In addition, how can you tell what her motivation truly is if there is money involved?

How can anyone believe this is not a SCAM site?

Been registered on Romance Compass for over 2 years. Not spent much money on it. But keep my eye on it etc.

Many 1,000's of lovely ladies on there, but no testimonials. Strange that as a successful dating site would be showing testimonials etc.

I had some convincing letters from the lady below. I asked her and a few other ladies to take a photo holding my name on it. Not one single one of them would. I had 5 credits left and read below what I said in chat to her.

RE: Nataliya>>>

YOU TOLD ME YOU WOULD ANSWER ALL MY QUESTIONS, BUT you ignored them. You asked me if I would come to meet you? l said YES but you never responded when I asked you about it... what a joke you are!!!

I am far more intelligent than you. You're a lawyer... your are more like a liar. You are the most stupid and ignorant woman I have ever written to. You are obviously a scammer and a cheat. Do not write to me again you idiotic woman!!!

After a minute her reply was: "You are a good man Derek "!!!!!

[Bob's Input:]

Sounds like you're taking this a little too personally. Here's what I mean... "Nataliya" is probably a woman hired by an agency, or at a "subcontractor" (i.e. not a direct employee but someone who they pay a percentage for all the letter revenue she generates).

ANY TIME YOU PAY BY THE LETTER/CHAT/VIDEO THIS IS HAPPENING. If you pay one price for unlimited direct contact it's usually more straight-up.
