The truth about internet dating

“Initially he enters your trust, tells how good and honest he is, pays the first salary, and then doesn’t pay for several months.” “Do not get involved with this scum. This is why when foreigners come to visit their prospective brides they are surprised that a girl who was so open and affectionate in her correspondence, suddenly becomes prudish.

One woman posted a warning on a social networking site, saying the owner of the agency she had been working for didn’t pay her and other translators 18-20 thousand hryvnia each (about $860-950) for a several months work. It is a common complaint from men that Ukrainian women they meet through PPL sites never allow any intimacy, even as much as a kiss or holding hands.

She complained about delivering the work and being scammed out of her pay. The practice became more understandable when I came across a forum post by a translator, who said it was her responsibility during meetings of Ukrainian women with foreign men to ensure there was no intimate contact, as this could cause criminal prosecution for the agency for solicitation (prostitution).

The average salary in Ukraine today is about US $200-300 a month, which dropped significantly in the last year from the previous amounts of US $500-800 a month due to the armed conflict in the country and subsequent economic crisis.

Ads about vacancies at marriage agencies promise income up to $3000/month but this is only possible with additions of gifts (which women may elect to receive as cash), as the regular payment to a translator is only about $0.50-0.75 per letter and $2-3/hour for online chat.

Another poster offers to find personnel for a new PPL business, while the third lists for sale a “good client base of real girls” for already operating agencies.

“25% for us and 75% for you”, invites an advertiser offering to rent out existing admin panels with already completed and approved profiles on known pay per letter sites, or you can rent a clean one for only 10% of it’s future turnover.

Some sources estimate the scale of PPL operations at over 100 million US dollars a year.

Practices of PPL dating sites listing Ukrainian women are no secret: you must pay for every letter, chat, or minute of communication, much alike phone sex services advertised on the last pages of male magazines.

Other online sources offer for purchase software programs designed to generate mails and chat invitations on PPL sites: “When the site is unresponsive and sending letters is impossible without nerves, the program sends them easily. It finds new clients by itself, the ones who are online now and sends them an invitation letter to communicate.” “The girl’s database will accumulate up to 200-300 people within 1-2 months”, one ad promised.

But there are not enough female interpreters to correspond with foreign men, so some agencies also employ male-translators to write letters and chat posing as pretty girls.

But if you are a female, you can get a job at a marriage agency anyway.
