There are many many Russian/Ukrainian mail order bride sites on the internet. We've investigated a handful of these International dating sites (Dream-Singles.com, LoveSwans.com, DateNiceRussian.com,CharmDate.com, RussianSinglesClub.com, Jump4Love.com and this review of Valentime.com that we did). Every site that we reviewed turned out to be less than legitimate. With this investigation were focusing on a website called Charmerly.com. Charmerly has the same layout as a few other sites that we reviewed. One of them that comes to mind is VictoriaHearts.com. Victoria Hearts looks exactly the same as Charmerly.com.There's a very good chance that both websites are connected and owned by the same people. Our investigation includes registering on the site as a regular member and documenting everything that we find. Below you will find all the evidence that you need to make the right decision about Charmerly.com.
Real Women Or Fake Profiles? You Be The Judge
One of the things that we found with all of these Russian bride dating services is that all the women look like supermodels. Every single dating profile that we've come across always has an attractive girl in the profile picture. In every single instance it's always the exact same thing, beautiful women in the profile pictures.
Below you can take a look at the screenshot that we provide a showing you just a very small example of the female profiles that we found on the Charmerly website. Circled in red you can see all of these women are all very attractive.Like we mentioned before we've done many reviews on various Russian mail-order bride websites and from what we've seen in those other investigations one of them most popular tactics to lure Western men into using their website and upgrading and purchasing credits is with the fabrication of female profiles that have photos of very attractive looking Russian and Ukrainian women.
As part of the investigative process we always read the terms and conditions page because many times these type of dating sites openly confess to what they're doing. In the situation of Charmerly.com in section 11 of the terms and conditions page they state that they "may from time to time create profiles which are maintained created and operated by their employees or contractors".
The screenshot below shows circled in red that all of these women are members of the website, but is it too far-fetched to think that all of these profiles have been created by independent contractors and staff members of the website? Could these profiles also be operated and managed by the same employees and third-party contractors? We think so.

Do You Really Think That These Women Emailed Us?
Although it may not be blockbuster evidence if you take a look at the screenshot below two different women have taken the time to email us but we're asking you the question do you really think that these women actually emailed us? Or is something else going on here? Personally we believe that these women aren't real members of the website the reason we're saying that is because if we go back to the terms and conditions page the website admits that they do create profiles which are maintained and operated by third-party contractors as well as their own staff members.
If you don't know how Charmerly.com works, you need to purchase credits in order to email women on the website. With the hundreds of different reviews that we've done one of the most popular methods of fake dating services is to send people phony email messages. They do this because they know that as a man you are going to reply to the emails and spend money purchasing credits. Although we don't have concrete evidence that this is going on with this particular site this is the most logical conclusion that anyone can come up with.
Send people bogus automated emails or instant messages written by staff or contractors and then you as a member need to purchase credits in order to reply back to the email messages. It's a very simple scam that we've seen hundreds of different times on other websites.

Do You Really Think That These Women Messaged Us?
Below we've included screenshots of just a few of the women that have sent us instant messages on the website. Circle in red you can look at their dating profiles, one thing they have in common is that all of them are very beautiful. Back to the terms and conditions page we've already told you a couple times that the website does admit to creating dating profiles that are used on their website. Why would such attractive women be contacting us? We've never spoken or messaged these women. These women have taken the initiative to contact us but why? Are these actually real Ukrainian women that have contacted us out of their own free will or are the messages all fictitious and used as a tool to get us to purchase expensive credits on the website?

(Screenshot of a blond girl named Juliya who emailed us but we don't think she's really responsible for sending us the email.)
(Does anyone really think that this woman took the time to email us or do you think that staff members are responsible for it?)
Why Would Russian Women Email A Profile With No Photo In It?
We've included a screenshot of our own dating profile that we've created for this investigative report. Circle in red you can see that we haven't uploaded a photograph to our profile page. But somehow, miraculously beautiful Ukrainian women are emailing us left and right. We're asking you the question how does it make any sense that all these very attractive women would bother wasting their time emailing someone who doesn't even have a photograph on his profile page? It makes absolutely no logical sense at all!
What does make more sense is that staff members and third-party contractors are paid to send out email messages and instant messages to every single man that joins the website. That's why it looks like we're getting emails from all these blondes and brunettes. It's all part of their tactic to get everyone to purchase credits so they can make as much money off of everyone who joins their site as possible.

"IceBreaker Messages" (Fake Email & Instant Messages) Are Sent By "Validated Members"
Charmerly.com admits in section 7 F of the terms and conditions page that they send something called "IceBreaker" messages which is another term for emails and instant messages that they sent everyone using a "mass messaging service". The tell us that the "IceBreaker" messages are delivered to members using something called "Validated Members". According to their terms and conditions page "Validated Members" are female member profiles that are purchased from various local service providers that they call "suppliers". Although this may sound complicated the bottom line is this. These "Validated Members" are nothing more than female dating profiles that have been purchased in bulk from various so-called "suppliers". These "Validated Members" are NOT real members who have joined the website out of their own free will.
The Terms & Conditions Page
Below we've included excerpts taken from the terms and conditions page which we think are very important to include as evidence of wrongdoing and deception. In one part of the terms they admit that they use validated members to send people messages. This means that they use dating profiles (they have purchased) to send people automated messages that are sent in mass to their own members!. They also admit that they create profiles which are operated by their employees as well as contractors. You can read the most important parts of the terms below or click on this link and read it on their own website.
- Section #7F We may allow our Validated Members (as defined in Section 12 (Suppliers. Validated Members) below) to choose to send the same message (an "Icebreaker") to a number of other Members, who are selected by an automatic algorithm in order to allocate the attention and activity among Members of our Service. You may receive Icebreakers from the same Validated Member more than once. Icebreakers may be sent through the same channels as ordinary messages, including as a chat message and as a letter.
- Section #11A: We may, from time to time, create profiles which are created, maintained and managed by our employees (“Staff Profiles”).
