I have since found a profile for the translator on the Anastasia Date website. It turns out, according to the profile, the translator actually lives in Kiev. Her name is Viktoria too. Her profile number is 1122716. You can find her profile at http://www.anastasiadate.com/profile-russian-model-for-exciting-companionship-al isa-1122716.htm
I even viewed one of the videos to make sure it was the same girl. The girl is the same age, looks the same, etc... Now, I think that the translator made some kind of a deal with the restaurant and that is why they wanted to eat there so much on the first day. As for the hotel, I would not be surprised if they had a deal with the girls too.
They gotta make as much money as they can while you are there. Who knows when next man will walk through the door. If you want to meet one,don't use agencies hard work and a lot of no's. Eventually you will meet the one who's intention are honest
I have a report on file as a result of a formal investigation done through a lawyer based in the USA after receiving many complaints about Russian dating sites.
After my complaint too. I confronted the girl I was corresponding with (a doctor aged 36 living in Odessa before the trouble started in Ukraine).
She was indignant, and she herself confronted the agency with a copy of the report I had received from the lawyer in the USA (via "Just Answer" website and email).
And the agency was quick to assure me they had high standards and did not practice scamming.
And they were quite stubborn in removing my profile. I insisted they deleted it, and eventually they did, saying they were "sorry" to see me leave.
The medical doctor still wrote a letter to me after that, but I wisely did not respond. My heart had been broken enough in life already. I did not need to take another chance on a bad risk.
I've since registered at a different dating agency, and still looking for the "elusive soul mate" in Ukraine, where I think there are still genuine sincere ladies. Or you can call me "stubborn Taurus". Only time will tell.
I have never heard a good thing about that Anastsia date agency, only stories about scam activity. You have to suspect an agency that bombards you with pop up windows showing beautiful women who are eager to chat with you there and then.
In the website that I use, I have seldom been able to get a lady who is online talking. I send them a message, they read it or not, then log off and if they are interested they come back to me a couple of days later with a brief message saying that they are prepared to talk. Even then, it can take weeks of trying to get them to do real chat online. In the meantime they send you sporadic brief messages until they are sure they want to explore a relationship with you.
I know it has been a couple of years. But Viktoria Hoda is still active and this girl is a scammer!
She has opened a marriage agency website called VeronikaLove.com Total scam! The girl states she lives in Kirovograd. But that is not true. She moved to Kiev. I found this out when I happened upon her profile at a Russian Social network called VK.com. Even the telephone number at the website has an area code for Kiev. The telephone number is 44 020 3287 1587. They even listed an American telephone number 1 347 627 0167.
At the VeronikaLove website, they state the home address for the company is in London at Veronika Project LTD 43 Bedford street London WC2E9HA. The company is owned by a guy named Ian Taylor according to BizListUK.
