Other Comments: BACKGROUND
From what I researched through http://agencyscams.com/index.html, the original company was Confidential Connections.com. Later it changed (names, owners???) and became UALADYS.COM. Around the start of 2008, this company split in a melodramatic feud between supposed owners in Ukraine! It became 2 identities, Ualadys.com and Uadreams.com.
You will see from the above addresses, the parent company is in USA.
Essentially, these companies continue to operate in a similar fashion.
Clients, either find the site OR are enticed to join the site by ladies (as I was from Ukrainedate.com!) and then you begin writing to ladies in their gallery.
ALL letters are translated, at a cost TO YOU, regardless if the lady speaks YOUR language! Services for the ladies are FREE!
You cannot have personal contact details or be in direct contact with ladies, apart from through the agency!
You pay for letters, photos and videos and they try to get you to send gifts as well, which they supply from their SHOP on the internet site, at 3 times the cost you can buy over the counter!
On the surface, one can feel protected and ensured that the ladies exist! After all, its through an agency!!!
In brief, I visited ladies in 2008 and 2009, via these 2 agencies.
Having written to ladies from both agencies at various cities around Ukraine, I thought that my chances of connecting with at least ONE would be assured!
The agency encourages men to buy their TOUR packages, which gives YOU accommodation, introduction and translation with the girls you nominate...All at considerable costs!!!
The girls put they search for (their age) to 55 or 60 year old men in their profiles, when they are in their 20's??? As an 'older' guy, having YOUNG girls write to me, claiming that I was what they were after as a partner, and age makes NO difference, is quite seductive and the rouse they use, ensuring you write and eventually visit!
This is when things started to go bad! 2 weeks before my departure in 2008, and flight, visa and package are arranged and PAID, I received letters from ladies. SUDDENLY, they found work, in another part of Ukraine, another country...They are finishing their study, exams, looking for work, they are visiting sick, dying or a family member JUST died, or their family member just went to hospital and they need to be by their side 24/7!!! or they are opening their business.....The list continues, and YES, it ALL happened to me in these 2 trips! And yes, I was going to Ukraine to meet...WHO??? So I went, as canceling incurs fees as well!!!
Then if you do meet with a lady you wrote to, then they take you shopping!...for clothes, perfumes etc Or they take you to expensive restaurants...Even if they can speak English, as with my case, they are not allowed to by the agency, who inserts a translator, so the agency makes a profit from that as well!!! And if you go to a restaurant, of course you pay for the translators lunch/dinner as well!!!
This is all 'nicely' written for the unsuspecting male clients in the agencies advert, which also includes spiels about age difference! So the agency can claim that its 'clearly written', both in the internet site adverts, and the agreement you sign BEFORE you meet with ladies...Then the agency will say...Why did you do agree?...
Also another reality for me was that when I met these girls, mostly, they did NOT know anything about me, though I had written to them for months before visiting!!!
Then there are the more adept ones that can lead you to believe there is a future, and milk you for all they can...in a scammer style.....Some will openly ask for money, others allow you to offer, then they put their hands in both your pockets...You will go home with empty hearts and pockets!
If you read the Gallina P episode on this site, it will give you an insight to what I experienced on my last visit. She is typical of the lady I met through this agency, and decided enough was enough! She is listed a s a scammer for good reason!
NOW, I will highlight this episode from the discussions I have had with the agency! They have essentially 'whitewashed' the situation, and now offer me some of the money I gave to this lady (Gallina P) so that I will remove my postings of her!!!
I will post my letters to the agency and their replies of how they deal with a 'scam' issue, and then claim they have a GOOD reputation!
I hope it will enlighten you and save you money and emotions!
So in this, I hope you will learn about these agencies through my experience!
@Venezolano and all others
The cities I have visited...
Tried to visit ladies in Donetsk, but surprise!!!, they were out of the country...on holidays in Egypt at the time and another lady was working??? so she didn't have time!!!
3. Lugansk (Office staff were RUDE, and ladies were NOT available to meet...BUSY of course!!!)
Was about to visit a lady in Chernigov but after many letters she suddenly wasn't sure about meeting me!!!
Kiev...I told a lady I could meet her the following week because I was traveling through Europe and could arrange a stopover at her city (it was because I was meeting other ladies in Ukraine so thought to test my theories!!!) and suddenly, her sister was about to have a baby and she also couldn't find a babysitter for her own daughter...I suggested she could bring her along, even if we could meet only for a coffee...she declined! Many times in her letters she (the translator) made the mistake of referring to my country as USA rather than Australia. Not only are they FRAUDS, they are LAZY and sloppy at their job!!!
I have written to MANY more ladies and could provide letters from ALL!!!
Excuses, excuses and excuses. Lies, lies and more lies. Both agencies are really dangerous scammers.
The greatest lie of all is that both agencies have an anti scam policy.
You're comment above did really impress me.
The saddest part is that although in my heart I thought there was a SCAM happening, I HOPED that at least from ALL the ladies I wrote to that there would be at least ONE that was sincere...that was my downfall...or should I say that Gallina P was my downfall!!!
I really believed/hoped there was something genuine after all my efforts!!! I guess thats what happens with alot of men. They invest much of themselves, time money emotions then want it validated and follow empty dreams...Uadreams and Ualadys...Hahaha...
Their Anti Scam policy relates to them NOT admitting that there is a SCAM happening...!!!
UaDreams refused to give me the Donetsk office address. This is the lady that I wrote 80 letters to over 18 months. March and August 2008 allegedly working in Germany. When VISA secure refused to make payment 8 times over 8 weeks for which I suspect meant that this site was on the VISA scam data base I could not continue the correspondence.
From what you say maybe a Donetsk office physically does not exist!
Has anyone else ever received an identical letter from Lidiya P?
Or it can be one guy operating his computer at his home at Donetsk receiving instruction from the agency. Who knows.
The agency only has excuses for not seeing your girl. As I told before they are only interested in keeping the correspondin flowin and flowing.

Personalmente no he recibido carta de Lidya de Donetsk, pero no descarto que me llegue una. La mayoría de las cartas que he recibido son de ualadys.com. Si recibo una de esta chica, con mucho gusto la publico.
