Review about Ukraine Brides Agency

Ukraine Brides Agency

So here it goes it is time to get into the serious business of the site: review dating websites, chat websites and anything related to the love industry around Ukraine. Why? Because out there’s a ton of scam, and maybe the experience of one person (me) with the addition of your comments can help out other fellow brothers. Also, this kind of websites pop up, rise and disappear so fast that I will try to only review websites that have been running for a while (it is highly likely that a website arising in a month is full of fake profiles).

So to begin this section I will check out how Ukraine Brides Agency (link) works out for me, my general experience and the ups and downs. A good aspect is that they have detailed information of how they operate which makes them (so far) look like a real service with a trustworthy personal; one of the downsides is that the company itself is operated by some “Keith Gordon” who resides at New Zealand and from whom I was not able to find much information (though, maybe I could try contacting them directly later on).

What they offer?


Ukraine Brides Agency declares itself as an agency to facilitate friendships and relationships that can eventually turn into a marriage and migration of one of both parties. It seems to be partnership of smaller agencies in different cities along Ukraine.

They offer the possibility to browse through profiles of women, send messages, initiate chat conversations and finally send a broad variety of gifts that go from roses up to jewelry. On the other hand they also work as a travel agency as they can arrange travels for you, a group or persons and also arrange a meeting with some of the women you have been talking with. I’ll go later on about the prices.

My impressions


The first thing I got to say is that even though that they assure that the profiles are 100% real, the advertisements on the front page leave some doubts. All the photos seem to be of heaven models or more, so at the beginning I was a little skeptical. Anyway, creating an account is free so let’s give a first peek to see how the actual service is. Update on this issue.After Keith Gordon contacted me, he explained that a requirement for publishing the photos is that these should look professional and have quality.

Woah, my second impression (once I registered) is actually good. As you can see in the following screen-cap there seems to be a broad variety of persons, and not all the girls are stunning and perfect (which in my humble opinion is a good sign).

Ukraine Dating Agency Review

I decided to look for how real these pictures could, by using the Google Images search tool you can find if a photo has been published elsewhere. This way I was able to notice something good: most of the photos are genuine (haven’t been published in other websites), although I still found some bad things: I found some photoshoped pictures of girls (face cropped into body of models), and other photos which are available in several dating agencies at the same time (Bride Helena, Czech Ladies, Mermeladies, etc… almost always the information is exactly the same).

scam Ukraine Bride Agency Review

I won’t go into details but I am prone to believe this: the profiles have been copied from this website in almost all the cases (by checking date of publication in the other websites); some profiles are fake profiles or at least contain partial fake information, in this case I let you draw your own conclusions.


Anyway, heads up and let’s see how the rest works

My experience

So the next thing I do is create my profile using real information of who I am in real life. As they suggest, I even upload a photo. Here I need to say something important; I am an average person, with some hobbies, nothing special or to be impressed of.

So from here now the options are quite limited:

  • View profiles (but not the private photos and videos)
  • Nudge ladies.

And on the other hand:

  • Receive letters from ladies (but you won’t be able to reply until you pay)
  • Receive nudges.

Oh well, after one hour of being online it turns out that I have got 11 messages from 5 different girls, all of them are messages with romantic intentions that I find hard to believe are for real. Immediately they invite you to chat conversations which also cost so here is the dead end for now.

Ukrain Dating Agency Inbox

They give you 4 credits when you register so let’s see if I can find something interesting or I should just go and take a look on the prices.


Each credit costs $1.25 USD (discounts while buying 50 credits or more, with a reduction up to $1 USD per credit).

  • A message costs 3.60 credits ($4.5 USD)
  • Text chatting costs 0.40 credits per minute ($0.5 USD)
  • Video chatting costs 1 credit per minute ($1.25 USD)
  • Checking the photos costs 0.75 credits per gallery, the videos cost 1.5 credits per clip.
  • The gifts range from 35 credits ($43.75 USD) for some roses up to 300 credits ($375 USD) for some jewelry.
  • And the most important thing: a fee of 100 credits ($125 USD) to get the contact details of a woman.

Well, here it is. The Agency claims to be some of the cheapest out there, I haven’t compared a lot yet, so I couldn’t tell at the very moment.


There are lots of things that make me feel that this website has some scam profiles. The fact that so many ladies contact you in such a short period of time (as I am writing this I think there are already 12 women), the fact that all of them will send you a message and then invite you to chat, and finally the fact that the reply rate of nudging is 100%… All of this seems quite automatic…

But the most disturbing thing is the sort of messages you get, which I find hard to believe can come from real persons. For example:

It is amazing to receive your true interest in me:)I will be happy to know you and to develop our communication. I am here with true feelings as well. I have a wish to find someone who really want have some future.

Do you know that there are five languages of love? Do you want to master those languages with me? As for me I need to have a good partner for it! I know the first language! It is communication….let’s start with it and will see how we know it!)))

Do you know what? I want to be the angel for you! I want to come from the sky for you every day. I will be able to make hot chocolate for you in the morning and we will have breakfast together.

When we can start?:)



See? Between all that gibberish of words there is not a single description of who she really is, just a highly romantic invitation to get to know each other. Be sincere, is the a woman who would write like that on the Internet?

But not everything is bad; actually I found some profiles with sincere descriptions which could actually belong to women there. I am curious to check a little more on the website, but that will have to wait (before spending some money I want to make a list of the sites which seem to be more trustworthy).

Update #1

August 8th, 2016

Still, whenever I log in I start getting invitations for Webcams, Chatting and nudges, almost automatically (which only raises my doubts about this service). I will wait for some replies and from there on draw some additional conclusions (if the replies ever come).

Update #2: Good news on the way

August 22th, 2016

At the time I published this post I didn’t expect it will drag so much attention, but it did. It actually reached the Headquarters of the Agency itself who early this morning sent a detailed comment explaining some details of the way they have decided to do their business.

I got to admit I am really glad and impressed with Keith sincere explanation. So I need to add some details to this post:

  • First of all, I have corrected a couple of missleading information of the post. Specially the “score system” which I didn’t think that much, specially because I don’t have many other websites to compare for the time being.
  • Second, I invite you to read the explanation about the way they handle their business. Specially why these letters seem to be so ideal (Read her comment bellow for the full story).
  • Third, I am glad they have taken their time and effort to point out each of my doubts in this post without me even contacting them. And sorry for not trying to reach you before writing this.

Update #3: Still fishy

October 15th, 2018

As time has passed by the amount of emails and comments has increased. Most of them point the site to be a scam, full of fake profiles and with girls who will disappear after a month of so of talking.

38 thoughts on “Review about Ukraine Brides Agency”

  1. I am Keith Gordon, owner of Ukraine Brides Agency (, referred to in your article above.

    I live in New Zealand, as you have indicated above. I have written an explanation on our site as to why I set up the site in the first place. I was vacationing in Ukraine and was staying with a family who had 2 daughters who were registered on Ukraine dating sites. These two ladies, as with all their friends were being scammed by the sites. That is correct – the ladies were being scammed.

    They had registered on other sites and had posted all of their best and most professional photos to attract men to them. With thousands of ladies registered you must post professional photos to be noticed. That is why all the photos of ladies on the site look like models – as you allude.

    However, once their profiles are on the site, the owners use them to correspond with men and the ladies do not even know that men were interested in them. I gave my friends an assurance that I would set up a genuine site that allows men and ladies to find romance leading to marriage.

    I could write many pages about what we have learned over the many years that we have been in business and why we have taken decisions for the site to work as it does, including pricing, however I will try here to briefly address the findings from your article.

    There are many things that you point out on the site that I am pleased about, including having a good range of ladies from young to older and from extremely beautiful to not so beautiful. We have professional standards about ladies profiles and photographs and will only accept professional photos that show the lady in the best light – including dress standards. You will not find any ladies in our galleries who are dressed in bikini’s in their main profile photo. We do not use sex to attract men to the site.

    I am also pleased that you point out that many of our photos have been stolen by other sites and used without our permission, or more importantly, the ladies permission. This is a real problem for us. You mention photos on our site that appear to be photo-shopped – we would remove any of these immediately if we found them.

    Sadly there are a number of indicators which you have not tested before you posted the article – to which you admit.
    We have 24 hour support via telephone and skype and you could have contacted us at any time to enquire about issues in the article which you have left for the readers to determine for themselves. I would be delighted if you go the extra step and find out the information and follow up to your article. As an example, you have posted your article and given us a rating of ?/5 for technical support when a simple call or email would have shown you our response time and exceptional customer service.

    When you visit the site you can see that there are ladies on line – using the site and corresponding with men. Their profiles are there under the On-Line banner and I think that these are the “advertisements” that you refer to. When you register, your profile is highlighted as new and any of these On-Line ladies will of course want to meet you. That is why you will get an immediate response. If this appears to be auto generated I am sorry – I cant help that.

    However, if you have written to 5 ladies and have not had a response in 48 hours, as you state, then we are obviously not auto generating replies. A scam site would have responded to you immediately.

    You are correct that the dating scene is full of scammers and that means that many of the men that find our site have already had bad experiences elsewhere and come to us with preconceived opinions. Those that use our site change these opinions quickly.

    I offer money back guarantees for any site costs that men have incurred when a lady is proven to be a scammer. Additionally the agency that she was registered with is fined and the ladies profile is posted onto our Exposed Scammers section – which you did not mention.

    We have also made a contentious decision that differentiates us from other sites to prevent ladies using scam tactics or sex to attract your attention – please let me explain. When a lady registers with us, we check her identification including retaining photos of her passport. We check that she is not married or in a relationship and is suitable for the site. We arrange professional photos for her that are suitable for the site and we insist that she writes her introduction letter to men.

    This means that her introduction letter is pre-written and can only be about herself. It is effectively her CV that she must use to attract men on the site. She cant use sexually explicit letters and she cant write a letter after reading your profile that lists her interests the same as yours to trick you into believing you are a perfect match.

    Many men don’t like this approach and see it as fabricated. However we want men to look at the profiles and read the introductory letter and choose for themselves who they think is a match for them – based on the criteria he had in mind when he started his search, not some explicit photo or letter that alters his thinking or drives him away from our site.

    If you register on the site, any lady who is logged in can see your profile and easily send her introductory letter. It is only when you respond to her that she is free to write in response. This includes nudging. If you have written to a lady or nudged her, then you have shown interest and you bypass the compulsory introductory letter requirement.

    The letter from Natalie that you received and that you have copied in your article is a disappointment to me. I am hopeful that this is not a bad introductory letter that has slipped through, but rather a poor response to a nudge that you may have sent. It does not matter how, the letter is bad and I must address this.

    One of our Ukraine directors is a licensed travel agent and we can arrange all your travel and accommodation requirements through the site for you. You can request a quote and itinerary and we will gladly send this to you. You are not compelled to use us.

    You have not compared pricing yet and again I would be delighted if you do follow up when you have done some benchmarking.

    There are sites that charge a simple joining fee or a monthly subscription and you are free to write to any ladies for free and exchange contact details. I say that any site that does this has a callous attitude and you use it at your own risk.

    We offer money back guarantees and that is why we prefer that all communication is through the site. We allow you to buy a ladies contact details, if she agrees, but you waiver any of our guarantees if you do this. How can we control the communication and reimburse you if you are communicating directly?

    We charge 100 credits ($100) for her details and we make no apologies about this. We want you to be absolutely sure you want her details before you make the decision to invest the cost. It is about the same price as a nice meal in a restaurant for 2 people.

    We don’t charge a joining fee, there is no monthly subscription and there are no recurring costs. You merely use the site when you wish at a pace that suits you. If you find your special lady after only 1 letter and marry her then we celebrate. That is what we are here for.

    We have been in business for 9 years so we are not one of the sites that you mention that comes and goes. We have had success including marriages and we delight with every one of them.

    During these 9 years we have exposed many scam agencies and ladies. In fact our criteria is so strict that most scam agencies don’t bother with us. We identify them, we fine them and we publish their photos on the site. We are just not worth their trouble.

    As I mentioned, I could write many pages as to why we have chosen to do things the way we do. The primary reason is transparency. You have indicated everything about our site including all our pricing and who the owner is without having to join or ask – it is all on the site for you.

    We would be delighted to receive any enquiries about us and we will gladly answer. Our contact details are on the site, including our photos! Email us at if this is easier.

    I look forward to future posts.

    1. Hello Keith,
      I am really glad that you find me and took your time to give some nice and detailed answer. Thanks a lot for your feedback, specially explaining the part of the letters being written beforehand. I have edited the section of “scores” as I think it was sort of silly from me. Also, I’ll give further revision to the post and invite the readers to check your comment (as it is way helpful).
      Feel free to contact me for any further discussion on the topic, and my best wishes for you and Ukrainian Brides Agency.

      1. Hey, Are you an admin for Ukraine Brides Agency reviews? I would like to talk about it. Please respond my email asap. Thanks.

  2. This agency scams for sure – pick a random profile and check it and you will find the profiles on many “serious” sites – make up your own mind.

    1. We work with agencies who list their ladies on more than 1 site – it increases the lady’s chances of finding success. This does not mean that the lady is dishonest. Predominantly, the dishonesty comes from how the site operates and whether the site is legitimate.
      We have introductory videos (that are free to watch) for most of the ladies registered with us where she says that she is registered on Do any of the other sites have these for the same lady?
      If they dont, then how do you know that the lady is actually registered on the other sites or whether they are just using her profile?

      1. I noticed this and it’s a good idea.. In the videos the woman always says Ukraine brides agency out loud. I asdumedcitvwas so other sites can’t steal the video. It’s a good idea

  3. UBA is scam and just google some of their women. They are all over the internet on marmeladies, toplop, AFA and more

    STAY AWAY – You are just loosing time and money!!

  4. My biggest concern with this site, I’ve gone ahead and paid the money to talk to a few. One lady, we have communicated back and forth many times. At 4 credits a pop. She has actually said she feels the connection and believes I am “her man” However when I brought up that I wanted to pay the $100 for her contact information she was unwilling to do so. Said she wanted to develop our relationship further by using the site because of translation issues. WTF? I said I refused to continue paying $4 per letter when I could just plop down the $100 and then we could communicate freely as often as we wanted. I told her I didn’t need the agency to make the travel arrangements for me, I am well traveled and could do that myself. But NOPE, still didn’t want me to pay for her contact information. SO… I’m starting to believe the ladies are compensated for the number of letters they can get you to send them..

    1. Jeffrey, we have online 24/7 support and we offer money back guarantees when a lady is proven to be not genuine. Please email us the details and we will investigate

    2. A similar experience.
      After chatting on their text system and exchanging letters, they won’t exchange any contact details. Full stop. Some said it was forbidden by the agency. And if you didn’t want to communicate via the agency, contact stopped. Oddly, that was after indications of very serious intent. Pooff – just vanished.
      the usual MO is such you into chat, insist on a meeting but no revelation who they are. Why would you go to Ukraine and know nothing of this person except spending thousands on their system. Not one wanted to swap or switch on to another platform.
      As the agency platform can;t handle word. PDFs or videos (another alarm) – why would you insist on using it?
      I will say as for the ladies being themselves, I think that’s the case mostly
      I also noted several ladies on other sites (usually Slavic Girl) and I noted 3 ladies online simultaneously on SL and UBA (and available for chat). I didn’t get around to testing to talking at the same time but be my guest.
      The ladies insistence that you keep chatting at 50c a minute but not any other way makes it plain as day that many are being paid to keep you online. IF you scan in Russian these jobs are widely available in Ukraine paying a very good salary. They say ‘English tans later’ for agency but say you can write in google translater. Go figure.
      I would say the success rate if you intended to find a Ukrainian wife would be less than 2%. Worth the risk?

  5. i would like to correct something you wrote……

    There are lots of things that make me feel that this website has some scam profiles. The fact that so many ladies contact you in such a short period of time (as I am writing this I think there are already 12 women), the fact that all of them will send you a message and then invite you to chat, and finally the fact that the reply rate of nudging is 100%… All of this seems quite automatic…

    there is a reason for this and i couldnt figure it out at first either. at the top of the screen you will notice a button of sorts that says busy or available. if you dont change it to busy every lady who is online will reach out to you.i have had as many as 50. i highly recommend staying away from ladies from kharkov but if you do please find out the name of their agency. if it is diolli i highly recommend to stay away. diolli is a scam site run by svetlana muhka. she is a fraud.

    as for my experience, i met my lady on this site and after 4-5 short months of writing,video chatting and meeting face to face in kiev ( a late birthday present for my lady since i couldnt make it due to work ) we are getting married. her kids love me and i love all 3 of them. i feel this site to be very legit compared to dioli in kharkov. if one should find a lady here from kharkov ask her the name of her agency. if its diolli stay away from tis lady. she is on the payroll of svetlana. i know first hand.

    i recommend ladies from poltava, nikolaev,odesa, kherson,Kropivnitsky,zhytomyr and even kiev. i have been to 4 of these cities and they are all great. my favorites are poltava and nikolaev. i recommend this site

  6. I’ve been a member of the site for four months and have had relatively good experience with actual meeting with some women. However, I’m noticing a disturbing trend. Please see my letter below that I recently sent to the site. I’m waiting for a reply. I will provide an update based on the reply I received from the website. By the way, Ukrainian Brides appears to be the same company as Natasha Club, 1st International and The Inspirations Company LLC. It’s not clear how they are legally affiliated.

    “To Whom it May Concern,
    I would appreciate if my letter would reach someone in management that can address some of my concerns with some of the woman that I’ve communication with. I’m noticing a trend that is making me question the integrity of the site based on my experience over the past four months. I know it’s impossible to filter out all suspected scammers and women that don’t have serious intentions but, I’m finding this trend to be disturbing as well as very time consuming and costly.

    Since I’ve been a member of your site, I’ve communicated with many women. I’ve been successful with meeting some of them on my trips to Ukraine. However, the majority of women that I obtain their direct contact information disappear after 1 -3 direct emails without any explanation or they state they are too busy to meet and they stop replying to emails. Keep in mind that I’ve been traveling to Ukraine almost every other Month, unusually two weeks at a time, and theirs numerous opportunities to meet. I’ve stayed optimistic and have supported your site including recommending the site to some of my male friends. However, based on this trend, it leads to believe some women are strictly on the site for financial benefit and do not have serious intentions to develop a relationship and meet with a man.

    I would be more that happy to provide a list of women that I’ve experience this trend with and I would appreciate your consideration to refund credits as appropriate. Please advise at your earliest convenience.

    Thank You,

    1. Hit By Lightning

      Well Lucabrats, its 5 months ago since you wrote the letter to them and I haven’t seen their reply … so WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU !!!!! …
      IMO … you should consider listing ALL the women sp others will know!

  7. I joined this site because of the reviews on the internet,I think this is a scam to get money from you,I sent 110,00 dollars to get a lady’s contact number,guess what she is not really interested at all,I asked for refund and awaiting to see what happens,I would avoid this site and go to Russian Cupid..bad site

  8. Robert russen

    I joined this and it’s a scam,I talked with lots of women,I paid 120 dollars for a number of a lady,she wanted communication,guess what maybe one or 2 messages,no Skype and then no contact,it’s a complete scam,complained asked for money back.going to my bank to request,think I will stick to just going again to Ukraine,avoid this company at any cost

    1. Robert registered on our site under 2 profiles – against our policy. He predominantly used our free services to communicate with 75 ladies and in each case he advised them he was about to visit Ukraine and asked each of them for their phone number. The ladies are serious and will not agree to meet complete strangers and share their contact details – unlike scammers who would agree to do this. Robert exchanged details with one lady and then advised her that they will never be more than friends (we have copies of this correspondence). She stopped communicating with him. Robert used our site to try and arrange meetings with Ukrainian ladies for his imminent trip to Ukraine. After he ascertained that the ladies were serious and not interested in meeting him without knowing anything about him, he wrote this review and charged back his payments. We have many success stories published on our site, including two new couples in the last 2 weeks. We are a serious and genuine site. Unfortunately, our site is not for Robert.

      1. I find it laughable that you say the ladies are serious and won’t chat to strnagers. But they contact you and tell you how much they want to be your woman. Hardly something you would do to a complete stranger anyway. You will be a stranger untill you actually meet.
        I waisted my money on your site for a very long time. When I contacted your 24/7 help line the woman was very rude. After not getting help I gave my own review on a different site. UBA tried to get it removed and claimed I was never a client. In reality they were right as I wasn’t a client but rather a mark. Spoke to several ladies one at a time. I spent more than 500 bucks chatting to one. She never wanted to let get her contact details. Then her letters started getting shorter and fewer. After I didn’t hear from her for a week she sent me a letter that might as well have been an SMS saying how dissapointed she was in my lack of communication and that I wasn’t her Greg anymore. In all this time no other lady even contatced me. Well well as soon as I read that email messages came flooding in. Impossible that this was a coincidance. This founder of UBA is just reading all our complaints so he can improve his site to scam other guys, You should be a shamed of yourself for pretending that love is the reason for your agency. Well it is your love of money that made you create UBA.

  9. This site is not legitimate.
    I have been talking by viber with a woman that I met on Last week, I got two messages from her on I asked her if she sent them to me and she said “no”. The funny part is that her messages on Ukrainebridesagency were introductory letters AFTER I had been communicating with her via Viber for a month.
    Of course this agency denies it.

      1. Jordan s Davies

        I have used this site and met a lady I almost married as well as some wonderful ladies. It takes work on your part and a willingness to go to Ukraine. A couple suggestions. Try to find a lady who speaks basic English as using a translator alone is doubtful to work based on my experience. Learn their customs so you don’t appear rude. Make some effort and it will pay off.

    1. Terry, please advise us the lady’s username and we can investigate.
      As mentioned, we have introductory videos (that are free to watch) for most of the ladies registered with us where she says that she is registered on This means that she is truly registered with us.
      We do not pay ladies to communicate on the site so we have no incentive to send letters on their behalf.
      Terry, if she is happily communicating with you on another site, then ask her why she is still registered with us. If you are not in a relationship, she may still be searching

      1. BS Keith a big pile of it. You get money from our letters, so if you send a letter onher behalf guys like us will probably write back to them.
        Being registered with a scam site just makes her a registered scammer.

  10. This is Keith Gordon (again), owner of Ukraine Brides Agency I thought I would respond to your latest comment, dated October 15 2018.

    I understand the need for forums on dating sites, particularly Slavic sites, and I applaud you for providing that platform. Men need to be able to find information about the many choices of sites and make an informed choice of which site they wish to trust and use.

    We know that there are many sites that are untrustworthy and it was one of the reasons we set up our site. We are not without fault, of course, but we do all we can to provide a genuine service and I wanted to update you and respond to some of the comments.

    Since my last response to you, we have added the following features to our site:
    24/7 live support, including phone, skype, email and live chat on site
    Photos of our support team are on the site
    Free skype with any of the support team at any time to assist you with your search and profile
    Free 5 minute video chat with every lady on the site (if you purchase any credit package)
    Free monthly speed dating sessions with all online ladies (5 minutes free video chat)

    We go out of our way to offer a personalised service and we are proud of our achievements. We invite members to visit us in our offices and we frequently have men call in: this is from a member who called in today:
    Hi Julia K…thank you for an amazing time this afternoon with you talking ….you have brightened my day considerably. The taxi driver is crazy, but got to the hotel Reikartz River safely . He thought I was Australian and was crapping on about Kangaroos and who knows what else….brilliant 🙂
    Love you lots, Blair.

    Anyone who believes that we are affiliated with any other site is mistaken – we are absolutely different. No other site provides the features or personal service that we provide.

    Being a site owner, I do get to see both sides of the fence and feel it appropriate to share some of the issues that arise to balance the comments in the forum. Please remember that it is typically unhappy or disappointed members who write in forums – and it is always men.

    We are not without fault and I am not saying that some of the feedback is not correct – we make mistakes. If we are advised, we will look into any concern/complaint and we will report back. If the man is dissatisfied with our findings, we are scam and to blame. However, here are a few examples:

    We recently had a man visit a lady in Odessa. The week before he arrived, the lady was with her mother in Kiev as her mother was having cancer treatment (we received a copy of the medical report to verify). She came back to Odessa to meet him and explained that she needed to go back to Kiev to be with her mother and that she would like him to come with her. He said no – he had a bubbly tummy! She went without him. When he realised that he had made an error, he messaged her and said he would accompany her – it was too late, she had left. Two weeks after he returned home he emailed us to complain – even though he knew we were available 24/7 (he called us when he had problems at the airport on arrival). He called her a scammer, wrote on a forum and even went to the police,

    A man who telephoned his lady every 30 minutes of every day (he was infatuated) after receiving her contact details. She asked him to limit his calls but he refused. She blocked him. He wrote about her on a forum.

    A man who asked his lady to do things on skype that she would never do – and did not realise he would be like that when they were communicating on the site. She ended the relationship – he called her a scammer and wrote on a forum.

    Unfortunately, once a post is made public, there is little opportunity to correct it, especially if the man hides behind a nom de plume or just makes a comment such as “this site is a scam”, such as Leon, below.

    If a post contains the mans name, such as Robert Russen, below, then I can respond with facts. However, we view communication between a man and a woman as private and often we cant reply with facts as that is not fair on either him or her. We just live with the post, rightly or wrongly.

    It is also a common ploy of competitor dating sites to post negative comments about other sites – and this is all done to deter men from the competition.

    It would be great if there were more positive posts and posts from a woman’s perspective, but typically there aren’y. What I can say is that we have had more success stories than negative posts

    We are not without fault and some of the negative feedback may be justified – we just seek balance and common sense. If we have ladies on our site that have a free introduction video where she says she is registered with us, yet she appears on another site who does not have a video of the lady, how can we be accused of stealing her profile or having fake profiles? If she is listed on another site, this does not necessarily make her a scammer – it is the actions of that site that will lead to conclusions about the lady. There is nothing wrong with ladies being listed on several sites – why wouldn’t she do this to increase her chances. If you suspect her profile is fake, ask for a video chat with her.

    We provide video chat with any lady and know that every lady is genuinely registered with us.If a site does not have video chat facilities, use it at your risk.

    We cant guarantee success – no one can. If a couple lose interest after a time, it is not necessarily our fault. We don’t pay any of the ladies registered on our site and we monitor activity as much as we can to highlight any typical scam behaviour.

    We have a member reporting system and we investigate every complaint. It is not always apparent the cause of any issue or breakdown, and our response doesn’t always back up the claims of a member, but a pattern soon emerges with a lady who is behaving suspiciously, especially if she is recidivist.

    If a site is genuinely dishonest, there will be hundreds (or more) negative comments posted about them.We don’t respond to every post as often it just feeds a fire, and it may be a fire that was deliberately lit.

    There is a post below from a man who tried to extort 5000 Euro’s from us. He gave us 30 days to pay him or he would post on forums that we are scam. Of course we did not pay him – and his post is below.

    My comments will not stop the negative posts, in fact they may increase them. Some of them may be justified and we admit that we are not faultless. However, anyone using a forum as a benchmark should be aware of the pitfalls. I would also expect the “admin” of a forum to withhold any unsubstantiated posts, such as Leon’s, below.

    Our advice is to try the site and service for yourself and judge. If you choose our site and you have any concerns, we are available 24/7 to assist.

    1. Thanks for your comments Keith.
      I will try to update the post in the coming days to reflect your opinions.
      I always appreciate you pay so much attention, and also the fact that you answer some of the visitor’s questions here.
      Kind regards

  11. This site is a total Scam!!!!!!! i have proof. I actually met by accident a woman i was talking to on the site on my trip to Kiev. Even though i had spent credits on her in chat and e-mail she said she had no idea who i was and never wrote me. She then sent me information to my e-mail that stated she got a lot of men who said she wrote them back and she never did. She stated that the agents in the agency are the ones that reply to the mens letters and chats thats why she left. (She and many others had written to me how much they liked me and wanted to meet me when i arrived in the Ukraine and then all of a sudden disappeared). She sent me the text back and forth from her to the agency stating that exact fact. If you do a video chat 99% of the time the women is being watched by an agent so she doesn’t say the wrong thing or she is being paid for video chatting with you which for some reason is super expensive when skype and viber are free.(especially in the Ukraine) i am begging so man men out there please do not use this agency or website. if you already have cut your loses now the woman you think is into you is really not. I will send the physical proof to anyone that wants to see it. when i presented it to the the company for a full refund they said that the woman was not even talking about Ukraine brides. I sent them her profile that she sent to me with her personal information on it and on the bottom right corner in big letters it said Ukraine brides // they are a scam they are a scam they are a scam

  12. This is the most fake and scam dating site , 99% of the women are Photoshop , stay away , they are after your money

  13. Ukraine Brides agency is a complete scam. They stole over $1200 from me. I chatted with one girl for a month and everything was going really great and i began planning my trip to Kiev to meet her. I sent her flowers, we video chatted, exchanged messages etc. Just before buying my plane ticket i requested her contact information so we could communicate privately to discuss the details of my trip. She refused. I was shocked and heartbroken. I tried to convince her but she claimed she will never give out her contact information to anyone. Does this sound like a girl seeking a serious relationship?
    I thought maybe i would try again and chose another girl and again chatted with her for 2 weeks and then decided to go visit her in Kharkiv. I requested her private contact and she also refused. I then complained to management and requested a refund and they refused. I requested paypal to refund my money and they also refused.
    This site is a complete scam and obviously there is an agenda to keep guys chatting endlessly for money. Any girl who chats for weeks with a guy and then refuses to give out her contact details is a scammer plain and simple. Also I’m good looking physically fit and very successful so i see no reason these girls would chat for weeks and then refuse to give out their contact information if they were real and had serious intentions. Also I know for a fact that many if not all of the profiles are fake because i was communicating with one girl on another site and then received messages from her on UBA as if she didn’t know me. This owner from New Zealand is either a complete criminal or he is completely ignorant of the scams happening in his company. And yes the customer service is very responsive but that hardly matters if the site is a scam.

  14. This website is a complete scam, I joined back in June 2022 and spoke with several women over the months and each of them led to the same thing. An unwillingness to share contact details, fobbing you off with an excuse of wanting to meet in person first with never any intentions of arranging a meet. They will send you messages to keep you interested, will chat and express everything you want to know but the moment you want to take it further they will waste your time. Don’t waste your time as the only thing you are guranteed here is a credit card bill. Sites like these should be closed down as they have zero integrity.

  15. I have to concur with a lot of the responses here that this website UkraineBridesAgency / Simplydating is nothing more than a complete scam.

    I joined the site in June 2022 and started speaking with a woman from Dnipro almost immediately, she seemed very nice, her photos along with many other women there seemed very impressive. I spoke with her several times on video chat and she did look as the photos suggested but she was disingenuous with her actions. After all of the messages and chats it did not progress anywhere after approximately 4 months of wasted time and money. I requested her contact details several times and was declined each time on the basis that she wanted to get to know me better. How long does it really take to get to know someone online? I pressed it further and she wanted to meet in person first, very impractical due to the war.

    Fast forward to October 2022 and I was speaking with a different woman from Drohobych, again seemed nice, impressive photos and looked the same on cam. This woman wanted to speak more than message which I initially took as a good sign. After several weeks I asked for her contact details which she agreed too to my surprise. However when I contacted her away from the site I received a very poor response. I was given her email address and phone number, I received no reply to the email I sent her and the whatsapp responses were of very poor context. Almost made me believe I was speaking with another person. Additionally I found that she was still actively on while making excuses to me that she apparently did not have power/internet to call me on whatsapp, you can make your own conclusions from that one.

    In conclusion these women are clearly paid to be on this site, some of the women appear on several websites, they have little interest in communicating with you away from the site as they aren’t being paid for it. It is in their interest to keep you occupied on the site through lengthy messages and video chats. The best way to describe them is like a camgirl, with none of the fun!

    Basically any Pay Per Letter site is a scam site, avoid.

    1. Hey Mike!
      Thanks a lot for your feedback, I just approved it now because lately I don’t have much time to review content on the site. I hope your comments help other ” visitors” of these type of sites.
      All the best,
