RussianLoveMatch is a Scam? Why Do You Think So?

2. August 2010 by Christy 0 Comments

Last April, we tackled a few arguments claiming RussianLoveMatch is a scam and shared our side of the story. Here are 4 more common "RussianLoveMatch is a scam" arguments and our response.


RussianLoveMatch Can't Control Local Agencies

A trendy scam argument these days is that we, at our Florida headquarters, cannot possibly control the introduction agencies in Russia and Ukraine and that because these agencies are definitely up to no good, our entire service is a scam.

While we don’t install hidden cameras or hire “secret shoppers,” we go to great lengths to work only with the most reputable agencies in Russia and the Ukraine and have terminated relationships with those that exhibited less than model behavior. We also investigate member reports, no matter how speculative, regarding an agency's actions. Plus, despite insistent arguments, agencies are not automatic scammers.


RussianLoveMatch is Expensive/Other Russian Dating Sites Don't Cost Anything

From time to time, members argue that our service is a scam because it costs too much or because we dare charge anything at all when other Russian dating sites are free.


There is a difference between RussianLoveMatch and free dating/low-cost sites and that is the wide array of features we offer, our stellar customer service team, scammer protection, and the number of women on our site, just to name a few. Providing all of these benefits costs money, and as RussianLoveMatch is a business and not a charity, we must charge members a fair price for the services we provide. Quality costs more, as it should, and charging for a quality product does not make a business a scam. Are luxury automibles scams because they cost more than old clunkers?


Members Can't Purchase a Lady’s Personal Contact Information

Some men argue that if a Russian dating service doesn’t allow members to purchase a lady’s contact information, or obtain it right away, then that service is a scam. The reasoning is that the lady isn’t real or that she is not serious about finding a match.

Everyone’s entitled to their opinion, including RussianLoveMatch, and we operate under the belief that a couple should spend some time getting to know one another first before they exchange personal contact information. This policy protects members (both male and female) from harm and harassment and helps everyone feel safe and secure. When the time is right, a gentleman may submit an Intimacy Request and, upon approval, share and solicit any information he wants. 


Sadly, no matter what we do there will still be critics and competitors who swear our service is a scam. Gentlemen who try to view things objectively and make up their own minds are much more successful with Russian women than those who cry scam at every turn. Focus on finding love, not finding fault.
