A slideshow, a review of Russian and Ukrainian beauties, and the advertisement of a free registration, that is all the landing page of DateRussianGirl.com provides the visitor. No link to the terms and conditions or who the operator is behind this website can be found. It smells fishy from the beginning.
We start the enrolment and want to become a member of this shady online dating website. The process is a quick one, and within minutes we have created our profile after providing an email address and other common details like age, location and gender.
We are redirected to the main page, and the first thing we are confronted with are two annoying pop-ups trying to sell us premium memberships.
The interface is nothing special but easy to navigate. The most significant section is the preview of members. All the females are absolute beauties, all have model quality. On top of the page, we can find functions like profile settings, search, and a link to the application of DateRussianGirl.com. On the left side, we have various possibilities to communicate like EMF Mail, Call Services, Text Messages, and we can even send flowers. But it does not take long to find out that all these functions are not for free. You need to upgrade your membership and buy credits to use these services and functions.
The operator Qpid Network is using paid employees hiding behind all those beautiful but faked profiles to animate the members to purchase a lot of credits and have senseless but extremely costly communications. The member is constantly disturbed by annoying pop-ups automatically sent by an electronic system.
The online website DateRussianGirls.com mentions the additional costs for communication in the terms and conditions:
“While signing up for membership is free, which includes functions such as browsing members' profiles and pictures (except Locked Photos, which require upgrading membership to PREMIUM) , receiving admirer mails and using bonus points to send introduction mails to others whom you have just met. Correspondence with members via EMF Mail, Live Chat and CamShare, etc are paid for using credits which can be purchased on our Websites.”
The website not only smells fishy from the beginning it is a total scam. Even in the terms and conditions, we cannot find any address or contact details of the operator. The only way to communicate with them is by issuing a ticket. How this ends up, we know already from the testimonies we found on the internet: There is no customer support at all.
