Overview is a Ukraine mail order bride web site that is supposedly designed so you can interact with Ukrainian women. Bride web sites have always had a bad reputation. The question here is if is a scam or a legitimate web site to interact and eventually meet and marry women from the Ukraine. Our investigation left no stone unturned in our quest to find out the truth. Read our findings here.

Our Empty Profile Gets Views From Female Members, Why?

The first piece of evidence we would like to include in this investigation is a screen shot showing our member profile on As you can see we haven't uploaded a single profile pic to this investigation. We left as much personal info as possible blank but still we are getting bombarded with messages from Ukraine women, why?  

How logical is it to contact a person who doesn't have any type of information in his dating profile? But for some magical reason the women on are drawn to our profile? If you put the shoe on the other foot, would you go out of your way to contact a blank female profile, with no photos and no information in the profile? We would move onto the next girl who had photographs in their member profile. But on that isn't the case. This is something you should really think about. And we welcome other people to perform the same experiment and create a blank profile on this site. If you do, leave a comment below with your results. Chance are very likely you will see the same exact results as we did, views from lots of Ukraine women.

Are Automated Bots Sending Emails To People?

According to their own terms and conditions page uses an automatic algorithm using some type of computer software to send members of the dating site email messages. We took a screen shot of just a few of the messages we have received. Are we to assume the messages we're receiving are "automatic messages generated by their algorithm"? We would strong suggest that is exactly what's going on in this investigation. Automated messages sent from computer software bots makes perfect sense especially since we have already pointed out that our profile is blank. The only women interested in emailing us would have to automated messages that are NOT sent by female members but instead by bots.
(Email sent to us saying that "Daria" liked our profile. But our dating profile is blank why would she "like it", maybe she's an automated bot and not a real person.)

Why Would They Send Out Automatic Messages?

The first thing you need to wake up to is the fact that this is really happening, and since they admit to it on their terms page you better pay attention. The automatic messages are being used to get male members to purchase credits. If you have no clue that you are receiving automated emails from a computer bot you would most likely think it's a Ukraine girl contacting you. But you need to buy credits to contact her so you must pay to converse with women on the site. Unfortunately the messages according to their terms page are "automatic messages generated by their algorithm".

So the girl didn't email you but you have to buy credits to contact her, what? Isn't that a red flag that something isn't right? From our investigation the main reason sites like use automated messages is to entice and lure free members to upgrade and purchase credits. But do you want to purchase a membership to communicate with bots that send "automatic messages generated by algorithm"?

(Automated messages sent to us by their algorithm.)

Automated Bots Used To "Visit Your Profile" And "Like You"?

Another question to ask is if automated bots are being used to "visit your profile" and make it appear as if certain Ukraine women "like you"? You can look at the evidence we have provided below. The screen shot shows various Ukraine women sending us messages and "visiting our profile" and "liking us". Is this all the work of automated bots, the same type of bots that send "automatic messages generated by algorithm"?  The chance that bots are used to "like you" and "visit your profile" is very likely since this site already admits they send automated messages, why would they stop there? Don't you think that they would continue using that same type of software to send automated "likes" and automated "profile views"? It makes perfect sense to us. After investigating and reviewing hundreds of dating sites there is huge likely hood that the bots are used in all aspects of this web site to make appear as if Ukraine women are "viewing your profile", and "liking you" and they already admit they send their members "automatic messages". Since they already state the use automatic messages then everything being automated is just common sense, in our opinion.

The Site Admits To Creating Female Profiles

 Sometimes when performing an investigation the evidence can be circumstantial and sometimes it's backed up hard evidence. In this particular case the use of fictitious profiles that have been fabricated by the staff of is without a doubt real. This website admits that they fabricate profiles that the staff of their website operate and maintain. And they state and we quote;"We may, from time to time, create profiles which are created, maintained and managed by our employees". You need to ask yourself why would a dating site create profiles? From our experience with dealing with online dating sites we have come across hundreds of dating sites that creates so-called "staff profiles" that are used to fill up the dating site and make it appear as if there are countless numbers of women looking to meet you. In the end it was always a scam and the profiles were always fake.

One of the main reasons that dating sites create profiles is to make it appear as if there are thousands of attractive looking women seeking to hook up with you when the truth is all the profiles have been created and maintained by the staff of that particular dating site. If history is any example of what's going on with then that's the situation here as well.

The Terms And Conditions The Best Place To Find The Truth

You should make it a regular routine to read the terms and conditions of every dating site they used. 99% of the dating sites that we have exposed for fraudulent behavior always seem to admit the frauds they perpetrate on their terms and conditions page. So, if you want to see exactly how a website is really operating you need to look at the terms and conditions. In this particular case Victoria Brides admits to using automated messages and also to creating "staff profiles". We have copied and pasted those parts of the terms and conditions, read them below.

  • Section #7 The Service operates an algorithm for the automatic allocation of attention and activity. The algorithm automatically determines users with insufficient incoming and outgoing activity, and then sends from the user a welcome message to the most appropriate contact (another user of the Service, defined as the most appropriate contact for the user by the algorithm). The task of the algorithm is to allocate the attention and activity among users of the Service. Automatic messages generated by algorithm differ from the standard messages in style and are easy to sprawl.
  • Section #11: We may, from time to time, create profiles which are created, maintained and managed by our employees (“Staff Profiles”).

      Your account of your experience is important.  If possible, I encourage you to make appropriate corrections and renew your post.  You experience shows depth of details that most comments lack.  I empathize with the apparent fact that English may not be your native tongue, or maybe not one of your strongest skills.  Please do not be discouraged.  There are many people who will gladly and freely give you any necessary assistance to edit your message in order to minimze errors and render it more readable.  But even without corrections, your contribution is valued and appreciated.  Thank you, sir.
      On a presumption that you may welcome my suggestions, here is a possible re-write.  There is some uncertainty of your intended meaning when you say that ["… I got shut down."], and some uncertainty of the exact meaning in the remainder of the text.  Anyone reading your comment will sympathize with your dilemma.  I wish you success in resolving this or other similar issues, and of course in your search for a compatible partner.  It seems like you could find benefit from talking over your plans beforehand with at least two people, or more, whom you can trust to give you honest and wise appraisal.  After listening to their suggestions, I encourage you to make up your own mind once you have reflected on everything.  My personal experiences have always taught me that it is unwise to rush into intimacy, but I still have the tendency to want to do so, if the possibility ever presents itself.  Maybe it is better to have a less than perfect experience which may end quickly or badly, than to never have any experience.  I am not qualified to decide for myself, and even less qualified to decide for someone else.  You seem like a nice gentleman who is pleasant to be around.  If I can't find an immediate reason for feeling discouraged, I can always invent some.  Obviously, that attitude is self-defeating, so I try to not remain stuck in it perpetually, but to give at least occasional opportunities for hope.  Just a little hope.  Not too much which might leave me completely devastated when it is not realized.  Persistence is the best rule for any worthwhile endeavor or goal.  It seems to automatically ensure renewed hope, which in turn creates the will to persist.  Failure is guaranteed sooner or later, but even worse is to not take any risks and then not have the benefit of what failure can teach us.  The trick is to never be defeated permanently or totally by any temporary failures, and to not use failure as an excuse to be reckless, or as excuse to never try.  When one path is closed, it is a good time to explore other paths.  for example, even though romance is not an available path at the moment, there are other pathways which involve friendships and which may lead to the ultimate desired path to future romance.  Life is weird like that.  I am still trying to learn how to get out of my own way.

      I had been talking to a girl for a while, maybe 1 month.  I had everything ready to go and see her, although they would not let any infomation through of either her or me.  I got the information on the date when I was flying out,  May 13, 2016, and she said that she would try to meet me.  I told her that I had only 20 days till my plane leaves , then I got shut down.  Why am I going over there?  If she doesn't show, I lose, because the flight tickets are not refundable.

      You made a good effort even without any changes.  Thanks again for sharing your experience.  (For whatever purpose, I feel that it is appropriate for me to openly acknowledge that I am not a contributing associate of this wonderful website, but I am a visitor like yourself.)

      Are you for real ? Your spelling is horrible any woman with half  a brain wouldn't  give you the time of day !    

    • Mike Ruddy says:

      Did it ever work out going to get here? If it did how did you get her contact information?

  • Barry B. says:

    Charm is another site owned by the same organization as Victoria Brides and a few other sites Aian woman and more. To speak to someone you have to pay a minimum of $21 for 3 credits which gives you about 5 minutes before you have to buy more credits, the next step up is a few more $ the third step is $59. and the fourth step is $97 another step for $179. I was taken by them for close to $3,000 in 5 weeks and you can not give out your email address or text numbers to the girls. There was this one girl who promised to come here but here is the catch you have to fly to the Ukraine first and get your own room. Take the lady out to dinner and then if they approve then they will let you come back and take her with you. That site has the same collections qpiu or qpui that screans all these over seas sites for the money the girls get paid on a commission basis on each call. the company is out of Hong Kong. The Admins, name is Mr Hong Ko. The collection company claimes they are part of other various site like Cupid and many more. Please beware of every site you have to pay on. I went to my bank reported them to the Fraud Department.

  • grant says:

    you have only listed two real sites?  Surely there are more than this???

  • Tom S. says:

    Why everyone is so bothered about the site being paid? Where will you find a dating site with real people that is free? I would agree maybe Victoria Brides in not the cheapest one but then you shouldn’t complain just don’t use it. In my experience everything was good and I am 100% satisfied with the result. The stuff is very helpful and that’s why they charge money.You need to read policy of the site before you register there. Victoria Brides explain that they use automated messages because this way women have a higher chance to meet men. However, if you started chatting with a woman, it is a real person, otherwise who would answer direct questions instead of her? I have been using Victoria Brides for about 4 months and had no problems.I know that they send automated messages, so what? If you receive a message from a girl, whose photo you like it is even better. You save your time by not using the search. This is exactly how I started chats with many girls. It is simple, if you like a woman on a photo, send a message back and after you know that you chat with the girl directly. I think it definitely help men to meet women faster this way.I understand why some men have their profiles blank. Maybe some married men want to find women for chats or private meetings. Plus the site allows keeping a profile blank while other dating sites don’t, so I don’t see anything suspicious. Girls send messages even to men with empty profile because it doesn’t exclude the chance that they may like each other after sharing photos.

    Your analysis is very cogent and insightful.  Please don't take the next part as being critical or disrespectful.  I noted some trivial and very minor errors on this page which are not of any importance, and which do not detract in any significant way from the great value inherent in your sharing of your knowledge and insight.  Even if corrections are not made, it will not be relevant to the sincere appreciation I feel for your efforts.  So, for your consideration only:

    Are Automated Bots Sending Emails To People?
    The only women interested in emailing us would have to automated messages that are NOT sent by female members but instead by bots.   [where the intended text was perhaps " would have to be automated "]

    Automated Bots Used To "Visit Your Profile" And "Like You"?
    After investigating and reviewing hundreds of dating sites there is huge likely hood that the bots are used in all aspects of this web site to make appear as if Ukraine women are "viewing your profile", and ….  
    [where the intention is presumed to be "likelihood"]

    In that same section:  
    Since they already state the use automatic messages then everything being automated is just common sense, in our opinion.
    [where it is presumed to intend something akin to " Since they already state that they use automatic messages, then everything being automated is just common sense, in our opinion."  or perhaps " Since they already state they use automatic messages, then everything being automated is just common sense, in our opinion."]

    The Terms And Conditions, The Best Place To Find The Truth
    You should make it a regular routine to read the terms and conditions of every dating site they used.
    {where the intended text is not immediately obvious, but easily improved with a minor edit at the end of the sentence, or perhaps a version such as, "One should make it a regular routine to read the terms and conditions of every dating site one wishes to use, [before, after, and regularly thereafter, since many of these sites claim the right to make unexpected changes in their Terms without notice.]" }
     which may be a correct perception on my part, or not.  From my own experiences, it is easy to get caught up in the heat of the moment, enthralled by the wonderful entreating visions of undying love served up with a tasty sauce of (one-sided?) passion, and as it is usually late at night after long hours pursuing other serious matters, the wisdom of reading a lengthy legal document is cast aside by a reluctance to delve too deeply into the details, which can be changed anyway, and which detract from the comforting illusions of the moment, practically requiring that the reader not attach too much realistic comprehension to the details lest the pleasant thoughts be pricked like a hot air balloon, leaving the empty feeling of being deceived and misled.  There seems to have existed, and maybe there is a growing existence of a tendency to accept business models which are dependent upon deceptions for the sole purpose of easy profiteering, as if it is socially acceptable to be made a fool, despite any legal issues prohibiting fraud.  I politely insist that it is not acceptable for various reasons, including the undermining of public trust and the likelihood that such lapses of business ethics will spread across nations and the globe, giving business entrepreneurs, small and large, the added confidence that use of fraud to slake their greed is permissible since everyone else seems to be getting away with it.  I am thinking that these websites could approach their activities in an even more honest and open manner
    which would allow them to still make obscene profits with little expense or effort, and still avoid the worse taint of impropriety by merely lowering their fees and making trial memberships automatically terminate unless intentionally renewed by the client.  Their profits might decline substantially, but still be very lucrative in contrast to sweeping floors.  (I have no knowledge of such business details on which to support what is merely conjecture.)  They could also inject some greater degree of honesty by actually delivering on their promise of providing real opportunities for connections between members, with no inflated or unrealistic expectations other than a chance for friendly, honest, open communication between clients and Online Cupids.  Some websites show hints of moving in that direction, although I don't trust my ability to make a reliable assessment.  What is refreshing and encouraging is the existence of your website which gives renewed assurance that altruism is alive and well, even on the internet, and even as we wish it were the only acceptable standard by which all human interactions occurred, whether in business or
    friendship or romance.  When and if I find an option to make a small monetary showing of appreciation to this website, I intend to do so without reservation and with full confidence that any offerings will be utilized in a spirit of altruism and "noblesse oblige" which has the aura of pricelessness floating over it.  Many thanks.

    You should just look at the employment adds in the Ukraine to see that the site is a scam—the woman are paid by an agency to just sit and chat-VictoriaBrides is just being used by the agencies. Lord knows how many different agencies there are. 

  • Rick D says:

    And Lord knows if a real "person" on the other end actually engages in a two way conversation, who is it actually on the other end? I mean, lm not ugly but Im also not overly handsome and these smoking hot girls are engaging in personal conversation with someone that could be their father. come on. It took me 2 hours of this to question who really was typing on the other end. Female, male, 59 year old on supplimental income? 

    Where are all the homely girls on this site? Just one.

  • Rick D says:

    I went on the site again basically to burn up the credits I have there before disabling the account. I noticed a couple models had their picture taken in front of a similar backdrop that advertised I reserched this site and found it to be a job placement site. My guess is the picture was taken at a Job Fair of sort.

    There are MANY postings to from different agencies across the Ukraine that are the same leading me to believe all Ukraine sites are scams and the person in the picture is not the person typing if you actually get something other than a BOT.

    Check out this job posting..One of Many

    victoria bride: adds time delays to increase calls and monitors and censor mails they alter letters both ways or ad garble. you can not meet on this site they stop all communication and keep themselfs as a captive site. they are actually operating out of Scotland and not the Uk.much of what they do is simply to get money and fraud at the base.they ulter monitor and censor all communicaions and its possible many so called ladies are made up and not a real person.

    М Apart from helping me to find a girl who would match my criteria, Victoria Brides custom support helped me with the visa to Ukraine. The date with the girl went fantastic and we are planning to get married this fall. Thanks a lot again!

  • Mark D. says:

    The site does maintain a large amount of real people, but is high risk.  I have met and dated a real person from the site and she told me that she collected a percentage of revenue generated by her profile.  She told me that I was exceptionally lucky to find a girl with actual "geniune" intentions.  She does not know how many profiles are "fake" girls but she presumes alot of them are.  The best guess is maybe that 1 out of 3 is an actual single person looking to meet people.  None of this is backed up with actual verifible facts but is the just the opionion of one couple.  Do you feel lucky?

  • Frank 57 says:

    I was on charm and was talking with a girl and after 2 months she told me the site contacted her and asked her to talk with other guys and they would pay her she got mad said no and told me then we decided to meet and they would not let us she tried to send me her email and the site blocked her and now we are being watched this site is a total scam you go on chat and its 4 am Ukraine time but 100 girls come on in 1 second and 1 girl i knew and when i said you know who this is she had no idea who i was i knew it wasn't her and i asked her about chat in a letter and she didn't know what i was talking about all the site cares about is more money don't care how they get it or who they really sucks because i found the 1 real girl on the site and can never be with her
