All very quickly want money, and if this is not sent the letters stop. So now I find the replies from Vera come short (one small paragraph) and only in conjunction with replies from Julia (owner) trying to work it out with another dupe in Canada who'll pay half if I do... I have not a word back other than they will return my money in the month... I will follow up with every agency I can to make sure they cannot do this again .. ), which gives men free postings with their picture and then you buy tokens at .00 a piece to send and receive letters on one agency that they deal with in the city of Sumy.
I have notified Absolte Agency of this and they have failed to remove the offending girls from their catalog which makes me think that they are part of the scam and should be blacklisted too. I still may travel to Ukraine to see ladies on my own ... I received the same letter from two different girls; it possibly was a mistake but none of the letters I received pertained to anything I had written in my letters, which I can understand on the first letter, but when you get a second letter the same thing you know you are getting strung out for .00 a letter.
Details on my WEB Site:- There is no doubt that Amour of Ukraine is a scam.
In the last 6 months I have repeatedly found ladies (8 to date) on the site These girls are all operated by Amour of Ukraine and are a scam. after hearing that I was NOT sending anything further.... So now I call there and speak to somebody I cannot even pronounce her name, and tell her this asking if it seems real and she almost can't control the laughter. just to jump in from of a third that surely hit home....
I have communicated with them using a total of 11 different names and e-mail addresses and each girl has a pre-prepared set of letters, which are sent out word for word, in the same order to each suitor. Vera, who is 21 ( I'm told ) has suffered a 'heart attack' and is in hospital. She was struck by the humor slightly more than I at the time... I offer to pay what they ask the second she is here in cash personally and my next reply is good-bye.... they have my money on account I'm, told but not anywhere they seem to have access to it ... So now I am looking to burn them in every way I can find... anybody know a good place to stay cheap in Ukraine?
The way to beat this is to request the girl address and offer to mail forward her hand written letters free to her. Stop writing immediately if the "agency does not allow, etc." Robert Armstrong, AOLThere is absolutely no doubt that Amour of Ukraine is a total scam and everything that Robert Armstrong said earlier in this section is true by my own experience and the experience of others.
It separates the scammers from the real girls quickly. It is a despicable agency and I think they are capable of anything. I think 'Anonymous UK' has this agency confused with other legitimate agencies in Odessa.
"Amour of Ukraine" is based in Odessa and I know that there are other honest agencies with similar sounding names.
I put the following WEB site together as a warning to others:- On 11 September 2000, Virtual Avenue responded to my complaint and informed they were removing Amour of Ukraine's accounts.
1) mention of someone dying to develop sympathy 2) how poor they have been and how expensive anything is 3) what they are paying to send letters 4) anytime they ask for money 5) when "chocolates" are more important than the dead father, etc.
6) they do not address your letter except for a few lines at the start 7) the body of what they say is too general 8) they purposefully do not get to the point in order to string out the number of letters Real Russian girls would never complain about money, ever.
They should be more interested in you than "their poor little story" or receiving gifts.
It is my opinion that the reason there is a doubling in the number of agencies is not because there are more girls, but because there are agencies generating letters off pictures to bring in fees.
