Let’s Be Fair: The Boy Who Cried Scam

2. July 2010 by Admin 0 Comments

Some say that HotRussianBrides.com is a scam because we don’t guarantee that a woman will marry a man within days because he pays a membership fee to chat with her. Others say it’s because we make it “harder” to obtain a lady’s contact information because we have a Qualification Requirement. Call me crazy, but people think HotRussianBrides.com is a scam because we don’t force women to be stalked and used?

The “scam” word gets thrown around a lot by critics and rejected suitors seeking to expose some conspiracy HotRussianBrides.com is hiding or not confessing to. While we can’t read minds or strong arm people into entering into relationships, we do our best to provide a safe and secure environment where adventurous bachelors and eager bachelorettes can talk, get to know each other and maybe even develop a long-term relationship. The tools we provide are email, chat, webcams, Video Validation and live customer support.

Email and chat can work, but only if both parties involved have the patience and a knack to communicate clearly and rationally. This is not an innate skill, but something that members need to work on. I’d be lying if I hadn’t misinterpreted an email or two and flown off the handle, just to realize that I had taken something out of context or with a wrong intent. Members engaging in internet-based communication must exercise patience and understanding at all times.

Now, we can’t speak for our competitors that profit from mudslinging or misrepresenting what we do. Many of them have no other recourse, but to trash talk (a sign of desperation maybe?). Fine. Let them. It won’t be the first time one of our members has left us for a competitor and come back begging us to help them after being mistreated. Here’s a quote from a satisfied member: “This is the best site I ever have been, the service is amazing and friendly, the girls are very beautiful! What can I [say], just thank you!”

Let’s talk about what we’ve done right. We introduced a Video Validation procedure that no one else in the Russian Bride industry has matched or has even wanted to match. This procedure helps us weed through disingenuous women that are seeking to profit through scamming on HotRussianBrides.com. Why don’t our competitors? Because they stand to make more money from dishonest activity.

While our business involvement is to create and maintain the flow of communication, often times we dive deeper, like a psychologist or a “crying shoulder”, and counsel our members (both male and female) to keep their emotions in check and help them find someone special. We do not hide behind a Website. We provide our members with a phone number, address and a Web Hostess to handle issues.

For better or worse, online dating will always be a ground for gripes, groans and gremlins. No matter how many people find a partner or a friend through our site, there will always be naysayers and dissatisfied customers. Have comfort in the fact that we will always go above and beyond to listen to you and act on your behalf. If you have any questions, contact us directly.
