The Ukrainian mail order bride industry has a very bad reputation. Men join Russian and Ukrainian International bride websites looking to meet women who are looking for love and hoping for a better life in the USA or other Western countries. Can you really meet Ukrainian women on websites such as UkrainianCharm.com or is all of it just a pipe dream? Finding love halfway across the world seems like nothing more than a fantasy. In this investigation we're focusing on Ukrainian Charm to see if it's a viable, legitimate and real way to interact with Ukrainian women who are seeking to meet and marry Western men.
UkrainianCharm.com Is Connected To Untrustworthy Sites
When we started investigating UkrainianCharm the first thing we realized was its similarity to another mail order bride site we just reviewed called Charmerly.com. Both of these websites have the same layout, they look exactly the same when you log into the members area. The only thing that seems to change is a few small graphics besides that they look identical. All the functionality is also exactly the same.
Based on our investigation of Charmerly we concluded that it was a deceptive web service. You can read our full review by going to this link. The bottom line is that the website not only sends people emails that are written by staff as well as third-party contractors but the female profiles used on that website were purchased from a third-party supplier.
We Got 42 Messages From Women That Are Paid To Chat With Us
This is how the chain of events works. We registered on the website as a free member. Then, we logged into the members area of the website and shortly thereafter we were inundated with message after message after message. As of writing this review we received 42 messages from 42 different Ukrainian women.You might be thinking that's fantastic, 42 different messages from beautiful women who are interested in our profile. Unfortunately not everything is as it seems. First of all you can take a look at a screenshot that we've provided below as evidence. You can see there's a small example of some of the women sending us messages. These three examples and the 39 other women who have messaged us are amazingly beautiful. These are the kind of women that when they walk down the street turns heads. But we asked ourselves how is it possible that every single girl who messaged us look like a model? What is the likelihood that every women is drop dead gorgeous in the Ukraine?
(Screenshot showing the type of women sending us messages.)
And not only that but why are we getting so many messages when we've never correspondent with these women before. In fact, we just joined the website but we're getting bombarded with messages every 30 seconds. Something seemed very fishy. We've literally done hundreds of reviews on all kinds of different dating sites including Ukrainian mail order bride websites. One of the most popular deceptions used by phony dating sites is to send people fake messages.
The con works like this, you get emails but since you're only a free member you cannot reply to the messages. In order for you to correspond back to these women you need to buy credits. The more messages you reply to the more credits you need to purchase. Obviously it can get very expensive and the end result is that the owners of UkrainianCharm will make as much money as possible.
"Incentivized Communications" (Female Members That Are Paid To Send Men Messages)
As part of our investigation we always read through the terms and conditions page.We found a sentence where the website admits that they pay female members to communicate with male members of their website. This gives the website a huge reason to want you to reply to messages. These messages are being sent from women who are getting compensated financially to chat with you back and forth. This was found in the "Risk Notice" section of the terms and conditions page where they talk about "Incentivized Communication". We think we have the answer as to why we're getting so many messages, it's all in a massive push to get us to reply so they can make money off of us. We strongly urge you to read the "Risk Notice" page because it will make you fully aware as to what's really going on!

"Validated Members" (Female Members) Are Paid To Send You Messages
Below we've included another screenshot. This is a screenshot of the members area of the website showing just a sample of the different Ukrainian women you will come across when you are a member of UkrainianCharm. As you can see, every single girl is very attractive. In the terms and conditions page specifically in the "Risk Notice" section the website confesses that they use something called female users introducers. These female introducers are third-party companies that refer female members to register on the website. They call these female members "Validated Members", these female members like we've already stated are paid to chat with you. They receive revenue sharing. The website openly admits that "Validated Members" communicate with you "because she is paid for that incentivized communication".
What this leads us to understand is that there's a third party company supplying these beautiful women to the website. These women register as members on Ukrainian Charm and receive compensation when they communicate with you. Communicating means sending emails and messages back and forth with real male members such as yourself.
The bottom line is that these female members are not joining UkrainianCharm.com to meet Western men. They only view their membership on the website as a way to make money. It's a form of employment for them and you should be aware of this before you purchase any credits to communicate with these "Validated Members" aka fictitious women.

"IceBreaker Messages" Aka Emails Are Sent By "Validated Members"
Something else we found out while reading the terms and conditions page is that they also use these "Validated Members", the woman paid to message us to send "Ice Breakers". An "Icebreaker" is a message sent from these paid employees AKA validated members to real male members such as yourself. So in essence any message you receive is considered an ice breaker message.
If you want to learn more about the Icebreaker messages you can read the terms and conditions page specifically go to section 7F of the website to read all about these fake messages.
The Terms & Conditions Page
Below we've included the most important parts of the terms and conditions page to provide you with as much evidence as possible. We've included the section where they discuss the validated members and how they send people Icebreaker messages. We've also include another section where they admit to creating profiles that are managed by their employees.Also included is sentences from the terms and conditions page where they admit that these paid female members also known as validated members "communicate with you because she is paid for it".

Based are all the evidence that we've dug up we cannot recommend this website. Your chances of meeting a real Ukrainian women and marrying her and bring her back to your country is slim to none. We read about too many horror stories of men spending thousands and thousands of dollars buying credits to chat with women on mail-order bride type websites. We strongly suggest you take our advice and look elsewhere for real women to interact with.
