Overview

AsianCharm.com is yet another Asian mail order bride type of website trying to cash in on Western men seeking Asian women for long-term relationships and marriage. But, is this a real dating service or is it like many of the mail order bride type sites that we've investigated yet another fraud used to bilk people out of their savings? Our investigation answer any questions you might have regarding if this site is real or if it's fake. Read the full review below.

AsianCharm Has Connections To Numerous Fake

One of the things that stuck out as a huge red flag while investigating Asian Charm was the fact that it was connected to many dating sites that we've already exposed as being ficticious. Some of the sites include VictoriaHearts.com, and VictoriaBrides.com, RomanceTale.com, and VictoriaDates.comm. These are just some of the sites that we uncovered that have connections and are owned by the same company. You can take a look at the screenshot below from Asia Charm and circled in red it says [email protected],com. Why would AsiaCharm.com be using a support email address for VictoriaHearts.com unless they are owned by the same individuals!

The reason this is a big deal is because our investigation of VictoriaHearts concluded that Victoria Hearts isn't a legitimate mail order bride site to meet Russian and Ukrainian women. If Asian Charm is associated and owned by the same individuals that run VictoriaHearts.com then it leads us to believe that Asian Charm is going to be run the exact same way, making it an illegitimate dating service to find Asian women.

Real Reviews From Pissed Off Members

Part of our investigation relies heavily on search engines like Google. And just like you guys what we do is we simply search for reviews and information on AsiaCharm.com. This helps us to build and collect data for our research and investigation. Below we've taken screenshots of 2 reviews from last month from angry members of the website. Remember these are from real members who have taken the time to create accounts on the website and have detailed their experience.

"The first review states that for all you honest people out there this is a sham website. The pictures are not real but from paid models". We've come across this complaint time and time again where the photos look as if they're professional models leading us to believe that this reviewer was correct in his assumption that these were in fact models. This is a claim we've heard many times on the various mail order bride sites that we have reviewed. And these photos look like professionally taken photographs for the most part. They don't look like amateur photos taken by a regular person.

The person then goes onto to say that " these are paid employees they are not real people in the profiles". This is another complaint we've come across many times in our years of reviewing dating sites. This is not to be taken lightly because this is the truth. There are many dating sites that have paid employees who act and pretend to be the women in the profiles. They hide behind fake profiles to lure people into upgrading to a paid membership.


(screenshot of a real review who gave the site a 1 out of 5 rating.)

"This next screenshot we talked was from another reviewer stating that the models are hired to create multiple accounts". Let me say that people are then hired to message you chat with you etc. And he goes on to state "if you try and take down your profile picture the bots will still send you messages saying your handsome." This is something we've come across as well. In fact all dating reviews that we do we never upload a photograph in our profile page and just like the reviewer has mentioned we always get an abundance of email messages from women on the site. So we can validate that this actually does happen. Even if you don't have a profile picture in your profile you will still receive messages on fake  dating services. This is because they use computer software bots to send people automated.

Why Is This Important To Point Out?

This is important to point out because if this was a real girl contacting us why would she and so many others go out of their way to contact a man who doesn't have any pictures in his profile it doesn't make any sense until you realize that computer software bots are the ones actually sending messages to people, not real women!

Examples Of Models

We've taken a screenshot asking you our readers what they you think? Do you think that these are real Asian women looking to get married? Do they not look like professional models? As you can see all of these Asian women are very attractive and that in itself doesn't conclude this is a fraud. Once you take into account other pieces of evidence like reviews from members of the site it starts to paint a picture that makes you wonder if these women and other female profiles on Asia chime are in fact fake?

The Site Admits To Creating Profiles

Asia Charm does confess to creating profiles on their own dating service. They even tell us that these profiles are created and even operated by their own employees just as the reviewers above have stated. This is not a conspiracy theory, it's a proven fact that's found on their own website on their terms and conditions page.

The Terms & Conditions A Confession Of Creating Profiles

This is the last piece of evidence we're going to give you and the most incriminating. This is the terms and conditions in which they admit that they're responsible for fabricating what they call "Staff Profiles". They confess that the "Staff Profiles" are operated by their own employees. Why would any dating site create dating profiles that are then operated by their employees? You can read the most important parts of the terms and conditions page below or click on this link and go to section 11 A where you can read the exact same paragraph on their own website.

    I have suspicioNS  of the people on the site all seem to speak English very well.  As one who has travelled to.Asia many times, my.real time experience does not show this to be true.  For real film flam, take a look at Mate1.com.  There is your classic scammer site

    • Admin says:

      Exactly, they are paid to act as if they are the women behind the fictitious profiles. Massive deception! 👎

    • sam says:

      I am 100 percent sure all the profiles are fake, many of those Chinese cities spell wrong,and those claimed Chinese girls can’t speak Chinese. Stay away.

    • Ron howarth says:

      This site as well as Romance tale and Asian tale are all scams

  • Mike says:

    Just as their fine print says… they hire 3rd party individuals to great customers and to get conversations going.   Since men are paying to communicate…. each response cost money.

  • Jon Thomas says:

    I had a hilarious time on phony asian charm scam. I made a free profile, and uploaded several photos of my cock. Within a week I had received several hundred IM's, and a few hundred PM's.

     

    It is obvious the female profiles are professional models, and likely taken by 1 or 2 different photogs.  The messages that come in, relate to cliches like 'soulmate'. Do I believe a real woman is going to address a photo of my cock as her beloved soulmate in the offing?lol I don't care how small chinamen cocks are, these are not real women.

    • Wee Willy says:

      LMFAO Jon Thomas, I didn’t even upload a photo and I get pm’s telling me when they look into my eyes they know I’m the one .

    • Jack Bauer says:

      It is so obvious that this website, Asia charm is fake. I get messages from different women that are worded exactly the same. Some of them even wear the exact same shoes. After several months of being a non-paying member, I guess the staff decided to turn up the heat, and started sending me sexually explicit messages. Also, many women ask for my picture even though I posted several pictures on my profile. And some of the messages are so ridiculous it just makes me laugh. Everyone is a business owner, or a doctor or nurse or a dancer. It's very unfortunate that the US attorney general, or the Attorney General's in the states cannot do something about these type of sites and take them down for good.

  • Tyrone says:

    I came across the site by accident and created a profile quickly because of time restaint.  I did not upload a photo at the time because I was in a hurry. I intended to do so when I return from work in the evening. To my surprise when I went back on the site I had four responses and two of them were telling me how handsome I was. That immediately sent up a red flag. The third email was two lines long and was very general to fit anyone. It was more like it was computer generated.

    The forth email appeared to be real  so I used the free 30 credits to respond. I asked three questions . The response was very general like computer generated and it didn't answer any of the three simple questions.  One of the questions was "how do you keep looking so young at age 50?" That was a simple question 

    I didnt use any money because it all appeared fake to me.

  • Sandy says:

    I work on 3rd street in San Francisco. Maybe I will give these scammers a visit.

  • Beebop says:

     Thanks for the heads up on this site I thought it was a bit dodgy when my mailbox had 132 emails and all the girls were stunning,does anyone know a legit Asian site..

    • Wayne says:

      Vietnam Cupid has given me some good leads. 

      Mom another site related to Asia me I talked to one woman about the city she lives in and which I know well, but she gave evasive answers. Smelt like fake to me

    • Wlp says:

      If you are looking for volume filipina cupid.com.  I got a one month membership, but the girls on there will quickly give you another IM to use.  Plenty of scammers on there, but some good people to.  By the time you talk to 20 or 30 it will start to become obvious who is who 

  • Richey says:

    Set up an account and used my 30 free credits in chat. Had one "lady" constantly asking for photos of me hoping I would add credits and post pictures of my face, my dogs, my cat all at 10 credits a pop… When I contacted support to delete my account they started offering my various amounts of credits to stay. Finally was able to get it deleted. In less than two weeks I received over 1,700 chat request and 900 emails…

    • Dennis Rudman says:

      I joined this site, no photos. Many replies, when I saw you, I liked you. I found 2 girls from Cebu, exactly the same words, in their posts. Some girls, online 24 hours. Obviously a scam. They post photos of beautiful ladies, then, someone writing perfect English, texts you. This is a shocking scam. 

  • Dennis Rudman says:

    This site is a total scam. 

    Beautiful ladies, but you are not chatting to them. Professional chatters pretend to be the girls. Some girls have identical posts. 

    You are just wasting your time and money. 

  • Tom Wright says:

    I have not and will not buy credits from this site. The photo's are obviously professionally taken. All the women are posed in classic model mode. I recieved 300 messages and over 250 emails within 4 days from women ranging from 19 to 55. The 55 year old looked about the same age as my 25 year old grand daughter. I used up my free credits chatting to one female (as a test) and once the credits had run out I stopped. I have not recieved a single word back as to why I had stopped messaging her. That is a big red flag to me, normal people would want to know.

    Now the crunch – I am 73 years of age, not looking my best – yet have over 600 women wanting to be my girl. Yeh Right. I came down in the last shower of rain too.  Having had a bit of free fun, I am now going to delete my account

    • Dennis Rudman says:

      When you finally realise that you are not talking with the girl of your dreams, that this is a huge SCAM, then good luck, if you try to get shod of this site. I unsubscribed many times, but they continue to send me rubbish. , “when I looked in your eyes”. How is that possible? I never posted a photo. Half the time, it seems you are chatting with a computer. Any man who thinks he is talking to any of those beautiful ladies, needs to wake up, as his bank balance will soon drop. 

  • Dennis Rudman says:

    How can I get rid of this SCAM site?

    i unsubscribed many times, yet, they are sending me constant mail. “Somebody likes you”. “ You are very popular “. Be warned, they want your money. 

  • Unknown says:

    Yup, total scam. They not only use staff profiles, they have spam bots. My messages came in clusters of 10-20 at a time. I would experience 10-60 minutes without a single message, then bam, all at once 15 messages. All messages were same format. I'd get clusters that all greeted with "Hi Name, I am the one for you (then enter unique but generic statements)"

    After a few days, The same bot groups would repeat at same time. So I wound up with 15 messages in a row, all with same reply format, all with replies from 2 days ago, 1 day ago, 1 minute ago. 

    Some serious scamming going on here. I am forwarding what I have found to my attorney general. This is not just a simple scam, this is a serious one as they can take huge sums of money from you with nothing of value but lies in return. I seriously doubt the sites owned by this company have even 1 single genuine person on them from China, or Ukraine, or whever else their bot profiles say they are from.

  • Pete says:

    Thanks for all the info. I have 

    been thinking for some time about it having onl sent through a rough profile. No picture but several replies in the same format, how I stood out from all the others. I will now try to delete my profile and update how I get on

  • Charles Foster Kane says:

    DON NOT DO BUSINESS WITH ASIACHARM!   it is only a money-making scheme, possibly with no true profiles.  it can cost over USD $1000 to get the contacts of a omwwna listed on the profile.  They try to run on long chat sesssoin, which cost "credits" whch are expensive, the photos are mostly fake.  I phoned them once and used live chat twice, and they make excuses and tell you to ahve a nice day…..but offer no solution to the scams they overcharge for.

    DO YOURSELF A FAVOIUIR—-TELL THEM TO GET STUFFED.

     

  • David Lewis says:

    Well I had a lot of fun on the site  I spent my money and enjoyed commenting with the ladies. I don't regret having spent my money but I was very dubious of them from the start and I've had two goes at it. I noticed that most of the girls or a lot of the girls were from Shenzhen  so I guess one of the centres for the girls being employed to act as the fake recipients.  I guess they must have a lot of fun exchanging notes after they finish their shift so I encourage two of them to be frank with me they must've felt a little sad when I finally gave up on them.  When you tried to nailing down to a specific time or day they tend to be rather evasive to the point where when I told them I was coming to visit them they pretended they didn't understand what I had to say.  Like I said I had a lot of fun and I'll always put it down to experience but what I experience it could have been if it was on Facebook 

    • Bob says:

      I googled one of them, and found the same photos of her on Pinterest that were in her profile. She was listed on Pinterest as one of the top 100 beautiful women in Shenzhen. So she must be a real person so to speak,but as many of these comments state, she is probably high profile model, but they are using her real name on Asia Charm. 

       

  • Brian says:

    I don't think there are any real dating sights online. Not sure If there ever was . When the Internet was created there weren't many. To start with they were questionable but possibly better than now. I've met several women online. However only a couple were from dating sights. Most were from free chat rooms that were on msn. Now of coarse they no longer exsist. There are many sites now. All look the same. All owned by same. All are the same. A rip off. In the late 90s I was talking to a customer support person who finally admitted to me their scam. After much debate she angrily said " Well you know how hard it is to get girls to make a profile? And then for it to be someone you would be interested in. They're just not there. We don't have any. So we have to make them up. "  What kind of shut is that? She truly thought it justified it. As I told her if that's the case they shouldn't be there. Get a job like the rest of us. But no. They just keep changing names creating new businesses.  Keep trying to find new ways to trick people. And if you watch you will even get repeats. Get a message then a photo. Hey I know you you haven't aged a bit. You look exactly the way you did 10 years ago.. same clothing even. But you changed your name, and moved.  Hey you only live 3 miles from me now….YEAH RIGHT!!! it's all bullshit. They are all scams. They should be outlawed.  Should be banned unless they can prove different. They can't do that but will refer you to the new real not fake site just created by the same bitch I argued with on the phone so many years ago

  • John Alchin says:

    I am a 67 year-old pensioner and want to warn people about Asia Charm website. I joined for free and naturally thought that I could keep chatting to the lady I fancied but found out that it was not exactly what happens.  To continue chatting to this lady I had to get credits and there's no sign of how much it was going to cost.. You had to click on the get credits button and then fill in your credit card details.Then you have to get more credits if you want to send some photos of yourself .Also you have to make sure that you have enough credits so you can send a letter to your lady. I am suspicious of this site because the lady's profile picture is different to her private picture . This is what you're allowed to see when you have been chatting and sending emails nearly all day.  Also they send you messages about how they miss you but I have only sent my lady a good morning this morning and I never waited for an answer.  I checked later and she had replied with a good morning message and a message saying that I have read your profile John Alchin. That has made me more suspicious because no asking me why haven't been in contact with her .

  • marek says:

    I wrote in my profile to send me their email.

    No one ever sent me that.

    moreover, no one seemed to have read my profile

  • mbguy says:

    I had fun on here too.  I uploaded a picture of a horrible looking dude and put in my profile that I was a serial killer.  Got tons of emails saying they wanted to marry me.  LOL

  • t. says:

    Yes, it's a total scam. More than likely, the call centre is based on the Phillippines were the speak English fairly well.

    No, most Chinese cannot speak English that well. You will see many grammar mistakes (like not using the definite or indinite articles).

  • Marco says:

    I've been suspicious.

    – I'm 67 years old and girls in their twenties say they love me and want to marry me. Really ?

    – Two different girls wrote me exactly the same sentence: "I woke up this morning, the sun was smiling at me, the birds were singing, and so and so…" Is it possible to have exactly the same words in the same order from two different carachters ?

    – Women over 50, who look like 30 years old girls. 

  • James says:

    I have chatted to a few girls from this site. I do believe there are some genuine girls amongst the fake ones. From what I can ascertain:-

    The girls have a professional modelling photoshoot to take the pictures seen on their profile and admit to wearing false eye lashes to make them look more western and hire the dresses for the photoshoot.

    The photos I get back of the girls receiving the gifts do correspond to the profile photo, but by no means nearly as glamourous. One girl, you could see the similarities in features but the teeth had definitely been altered to look more attractive in the profile photos.

    The girls have an auto generate message they can use and switch on / off to send the random ‘I love you’ type messages. One girl I’d been talking to, but found a bit distant suddenly sent me a beautifully prosed message declaring her love. When I questioned her about the message, she admitted that was an auto generated one.

    A lot of the girls have very limited English and use the translate option.

    Avoid the similarly written messages from a group of ladies that start the same and arrive in equal  time intervals. These have to be fake. It’s better to search for the girls and make the first move…

    Some girls do have jealousy fits like women in real life. One lady that I had sent gifts to, sent me many jealous messages convinced I was talking to other ladies on the site. When I didn’t phone her on her birthday and after many more messages wanting me to declare my love for her, I didn’t and she blocked me. If this site was all about money, then surely she could have just carried on messaging me trying to get more money in credits and gifts from me.

    Another lady, who I’d also sent gifts to blocked me in a jealous rage, convinced I was talking to another lady when I started messaging her less and less. Again, if she was not real, she could have got more messages / gifts out of me…

    Another lady had a hissy fit when she saw I was online a couple of hours after I’d said goodnight to her… 

    I could cite other examples about why some of the ladies, are in my opinion, genuine.

    In attempting to find a genuine lady I have chatted with many of the girls, spent more than I wish to add up, but I have enjoyed some very enjoyable chats on the site, developed a few friendships and moved a few onto free messaging sites. The girls are very pleasant and some in my opinion are genuine and looking for a husband. I do still talk to one lady off the site now and hope it will lead to something. So, in summary, I would say that there are genuine girls on the site, but there are also fake profiles. A few simple questions should help ascertain which is which…
