Complaint / review text:
Website listed is just one of many fronts for OnLineTranslations. Biz. Basically I was contacted by a girl on RSVP Australia, said her name was Zlata, profile name MeetInJune. Claimed she lives in Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine and that she runs her family's restaurant. Asked to communicate via email offsite, 'her' email is/was zlata. [email protected] Within only a few emails complained translations using Google translate where not clear enough, suggested using yourrealdate.com so she could understand me better, instantly I did some digging to find anything untrustworthy about the site, found nothing on it or her, but at time I was unaware the web address was just a lesser known one for OnLineTranslations. Biz that had yet to be reported.
Also did a Tineye search on every photo I was sent as well as asking for a clear photo of her holding a timestamped notepad, which I got. So all seemed legit, went on to use the website she suggested, was very expensive, 1c per letter, not word, letter, character. $10 on average per message. I stupidly used it anyway, as I believed she was going to pay for her own visa and tickets to fly to my country. Also gave me a cock and bull sop story about being cheated by a man who failed to show up at air port to meet her, costing her heap of money on wasted tickets and visa, stupidly, I ate it up.
I eventually came across someone reporting a very similar scam from OnLineTranslations. Biz through another front of theirs, the back story given by the girl was almost the same, just different country. I was also sent a photo near end of it all that finally got a hit on Tineye and lead to this https://www.fotolia.com/Search/Model/69637898 She did mention she'd done modeling in the past, so it wasn't surprising, it was also the same girl in the time stamped photos she sent me, so I was at least being scammed by the girl in the photos instead of a man pretending to be a woman.
I only hope my stupidity will serve as a warning to others.
