Overview

CharmDate.com is a Russian and Ukraine mail order bride service connected to numerous sites such as ChLove.com, iDateAsia.com and LatamDate.com. These type of mail order bride type services don't operate on a monthly membership instead you need to purchase credits to interact with women on the site (see prices above). Emailing someone on CharmDate.com will roughly cost you $4 to read an email and $4 to send an email. You can read the rest of what we found out in the investigation below.

How Much Does It Cost To Interact With People Using Their Credit System?

The first question we had to ask ourselves was is this all real or just another fake site? Is it realy possible to meet these Russian and Ukraine women or is this all bogus? Sifting through the profiles of beautful girl after beautiful girl, we kept asking ourselves are they real? We honestly had no clue so we just went to Google and start researching this site. We looked on Google see what kind of reputation that CharmDate.com had. We ended up finding real reviews from real people who used the service. These were not fake positive reviews written by reputation management agencies to make online dating sites look credible. These are all legitimate reviews from paying customers of CharmDate.com.

This first review we took was a screen shot (see screen shot below) from a member who joined the site. His indepth review was truly amazing. The reviewer said that CharmDate.com actually creates fake profiles using pictures of beautiful Ukraine women that they recruit from online ads. The women are paid for the photos taken in model shoots. The female profiles you see on CharmDate.com are not of real members of the site he goes onto say.

This site employs translators who are paid to pretend to be the women in the various female profiles on the site. And this is 24 hour per day business, so they have people working around the clock sending and replying to emails (all to get you to use your credits). The big problem here is that this is a credit based dating service, the more you use the site you more end up paying. The reviewer goes onto say that computer generated messages bombard you when you log into the site. There aren't real women sending you instant messages back and forth, it's all a con game.

And of course the end goal is to get you as a paying user to spend as much money as they can by chatting back and forth with you. They want you to burn through your credits as fast as possible because then you will need to buy more credits. The more credits you buy the more money the site makes.  And the reviewer then explains that not all the profiles are fake but most of the attractive profiles are phony.

(Screen shot above stating that Charm Date is a rip off.)

We take a screenshot of the review you see below. In that review the member states that Charming Date is an absolute scam. They state that the website employs people to entice men to write numerous letters which end up burning through your credits. And roughly every email cost you about $4 per email so you can quickly burn through your credits if you're sending and reading large amounts of emails and that's the whole goal of this. Sending out automated messages that you then need to purchase credits to read and also to reply to.

The review goes on to state that these women are employees of the site and they get paid per letter so there's an incentive for them to continue to write emails back and forth so the amount of credits burned is fast. You can easily go through thousands of dollars on a site like this if you don't watch it.

In the review they guy goes on to say he's very suspicious of the five star reviews he saw on SiteJabber.com that are written on the same day with raving reviews about how good the site was. This was our thought as well, many of the positive reviews look very scripted and could very well be written by the same person to make the site seem more legit than it is.

complete scam

The screen shot below is from another reviewer and member of CharmDate.com. He states that this is an absolutely fake site and the girls told him "they were pushed to sell sell sell". Then he mentions that you could be "out possibly thousands of American dollars" by using the site. He says don't do it, and if you have any questions you can email him at [email protected].

These reviews are all coming from people who have spent a substantial amount of time on the site and probably a good chunk of their own money so it's worth looking at these reviews and understanding they're giving you a warning of what will happen if you purchase credits on this site. This is coming directly from the horse's mouth, members who purchased memberships on CharmDate.com!

    I spent $20 and that was enough for me. The two messages I received back had I think about 8 words. Ten

    bucks for 2 messages, I don't think so. My messages to her were in the 1000 to 2000 words so after the 2nd

    message it was au revoir. She sent back a few responses asking me to reply but never did. I had learned my

    lesson. Short but sweet but I now know better. Take a look at the photo shoots. All professionally done. The

    clothlng is fantastic as are the photographers. We men are so guliilble. Nothing like a beautiful face, along with

    a great set of tits and long legs and we are at their mercy. Just take care.

    I'm surprised that so far there are so few comments about CharmDate considering how many guys have or are presumably still trying to find their "other half" on their platform. It is not as if this dating site is new as it has been going for quite some years as far as I am aware. Yes the photoshoots for the most part appear to be professionally done, and the videos of the ladies leave the viewer none the wiser with the music drowning out the non-existent sound of the lady's voice. The written part of their profiles are of variable quality according to their fluency and understanding of English attained either at school or later. That is not to say whether or not what is presented is in their exact words or written by someone else on their behalf.

    It doesn't matter how well formulated the presentation and the format are if you are in effect simply paying for an experience and nothing more. One thing that would ingratiate guys with just average-looking profile photos are the sheer number of letters one can receive in a month, depending on how much time they spend browsing on the site. Not that I spent a lot of time browsing for any likely candidates as I was engaged with "corresponding" with no more than 3 ladies for almost 2 years. But one thing new users should ask themselves is whether they can in all honesty believe that the attention they receive from all those ladies is real. If women will not even look your way on Khreshchatyk Street in Kyiv when they are not holidaying elsewhere, what makes any man think they will fare better on a so-called dating site where you have to pay for the letters you send, as well as those your female "admirers" send you?  That is certainly part of a recipe in the interests of generating a lucrative income exploiting gullible men rather than facilitating genuine relational encounters as with some sites where you pay a periodic membership subscription. Another feature of CharmDate that confronts you provided you do not hide your profile are the almost incessant popping-up of these "bots" inviting you to "chat" with "them" – I mean the photos of the ladies complete with comments, compliments, questions, statements, suggestions, innuendo (sometimes crude). How do you know for sure whether you are actually "chatting" with the ladies in the photos, or whether you are unknowingly "chatting" with someone "managing" the profiles of these women? Even if you can see the real women on videochat or webcam, chances are they are being instructed by the employees on what to say or write throughout the process. I have observed this when at least one lady requested a chat with me. Another thing that I can confirm is that ladies are prohibited from sharing personal contact information, and if they do so then they are removed from the site. In addition, letters sent and received are screened and edited for certain words, and you may find as I have that received letters sometimes had unknown words deleted.

    As I mentioned above, I had "corresponded" with 3 women over a period of a little less than 2 years. There was one particular woman whom I had written and received letters and photos over a period of 18 months or so. This woman was real, however I later discovered an embarassing and unpalatable truth which for me cast a big shadow on her apparent sincerity. That is the thing that can get one hooked, line and sinker. It can be hard to prove without concrete evidence that the woman who apparently shows so much "heartfelt" admiration for you is being proportionately dishonest. As I see it, this is the mark of an online "pro-dater" having at least some understanding of psychology and exploiting it. Without disclosing too much detail, it so happens that this woman does have a Master's degree in Psychology. 

    Like I said it can be hard to prove conclusively that someone is taking advantage of you. For me, at any rate, it was not enough to just have a feeling that something was not right. We were exchanging quite lengthy epistles for a number of months before the letters became shorter but more frequent. Can be expensive at $6.50 per letter when that happens. I can only be "grateful" that many of the exchanged letters were at least 800-1200 words each. But that is of very little comfort considering it became an expensive exercise in futility resembling little more than a creative writing course in a dubious context. 

    After some months, I decided to find some way of checking this woman's letters, firstly for plagiarism, then analysing the letters paragraph by paragraph to determine whether the letters were indeed written by a female. Many letters were consistent in that respect, but others exhibited some degree of "male" linguistic bias also. In many letters there was at least some degree of plagiarism, and some showed blatant, word-for-word copying and pasting of whole paragraphs. 

    The upshot of all this "correspondence" was when this woman started sending me some photos that would subtly raise red flags, indicating as it turned out that she was in a relationship with another man. It took me almost a year of writing to discover one of her profiles on social media through one of her photos. Very difficult to track down if the person has blocked or disabled the ability of anyone ever finding them through a search engine. Meanwhile the "correspondence" continued for some months beyond my finding one of the woman's social media profiles. In the latter part of 2016, she decided to part ways and finally stopped writing. The truth is that in the end I was not too sorry this had happened. Later I discovered the awful truth that shocked me in one way, but in another it only confirmed a niggling doubt. One day when I again checked her social media profile, it showed that she was actually married, and had been for some months prior to her decision to stop writing. The only "decent" thing she did was to get her profile removed from CharmDate. I could have hired some detectives in her country of origin for hundreds of dollars, but in all probability the marriage may not as yet have been entered in the public records as these are not updated on a timely basis as far as I am aware.

    I am not sure how acceptable this run-down of my experience with CharmDate is on this format, but I think I would be doing a disservice by not making some contribution and writing about it in order to inform and warn other men who may be vulnerable. I hope that they understand and learn from this sordid example and avoid CharmDate and similar sites like the plague.

      Thank you for the "feedback"!  Your information is very helpful, candid and I think relevant.  I have been on Charmdate.com for approximately one month and am only talking to two women right now.  These are women who I reached out to and are within a realistic age range to me.  I am 48 and the youngest I'm messaging is 37.  Over this month I have not spent any more money than I would weekly at Starbucks, so in my mind I'm OK with that amount.  My way of being able to compartment things in my brain I guess.  I have been able to get one fo the women to tell me some "rules".  She said after the exchange of 10 messages she would be able to provide personal contact information.  I'm willing to spend the small amount of money to see if this is true.  I will let people know if there is success.  The other woman just answered me this morning and said she was unaware of any rules, but when asked for her mailing address to send you some local swag, she said it would not past the censors, so at least there is a small confirmation about emails being "sanitized".  Again, thank you for your frank words it is greatly appreciated

    This site is a crock of shit. I have done alot of homework and found girls on facebook that are listed on this site yet know nothing about the site.  not aware they are using their photos and making profiles.. and let it be said that you are probably paying to chat to another man over seas somewhere that is taking all your money… money is better spent on yourself.

    I too have found this site to be lacking in I, they are clearly photo's of models on the whole. They are sexually explicit with their invites to get you to chat,band this would be demeaning for may ladies. They send EMF mail even when you tell them NOT to as your corresponding with one woman. There are NO age barriers for the women as I'm 47 and have 19 to 27 yr olds sending me mail, even though my search age is 30-60. I feel that it shouldn't be called a dating site as there's no chance of a date. For the reasons mentioned by the prior people who've commented. There is no doubt that it's just a well oiled money making scam. The ladies (?, Interpreters) also don't answer questions put to them and will not send you a photo of themselves holding up an object that you ask them to, even something simple like a wine glass or candle. It's ok if your a billionaire playboy who enjoys playing a game but for genuine men who are looking just get yourself over to the Ukraine . This site is a rip off and not genuine in their actions of calling themselves a 'dating site?'. It's sister site is just as bad 'Asiame', spent about £200 on the both of them and about 14 letters only to learn a hard truth. IT'S FAKE.

    I wish I'd found this sooner …. Sadly I started to have feelings for one lady until realising she'd lied to me. AVOID for your wallets sake.
