Hi, my name is Vladimir Korovine
and I am running this Russian brides introduction
service in Australia since year 2000.
During all these years, while I was growing
this business here, in Melbourne, I was
getting a lot of emails from all around
the world about the "dark side"
of Russian women Internet introduction.
Many of my current customers have suffered
disappointments before they found our
site. Many of them were scammed. And many
of them eventually shared their experiences
After a while I decided to research this
ugly subject myself. So I did. As I know
very well how the things are really working
in introduction industry, so it was extremely
easy for me to spot a bogus website or
a false claims on a seemingly legitimate
website right away.
The bad news is - I can not simply
pass my detailed knowledge and understanding
of the subject to you, to prevent you
from making wrong decisions. It takes
a lot of time and a lot of work.
The good news is - What I can do -
is to point you in the right direction
and you should be fine. You don't need
to know everything I know. All you need
is a bit of a common sense and a general
And the general guidance I am prepared
Google search comes up with
anywhere from 300,000 to 400,000 (!)
Russian brides introduction websites on the
Internet. With at least 300 - 400 Russian
women on every site.
Some sites claim to have up to 30 thousand
Russian marriage minded women on their books.
Let's leave aside the last ridiculous claim,
which is simply offensive to any intelligent
person, we'll trash this claim some time later,
and just do a simple math's.
Let us be generous and assume that every agency
has 5 web sites. In this case an average of
350,000 Russian brides websites on the Net gives
us a staggering number - 70,000 introduction
More than twice as
many as McDonald's restaurants worldwide!!!
is the world's leading foodservice retailer
with more than 30,000 local McDonald's restaurants."
Is it really possible???
OK, lets now calculate a
number of Russian brides in these businesses.
Being very moderate again let's agree on just
500 women per one business. (
Don't forget there are agencies that claim -
7, 15, 30 thousand women... )
have selected over 20,000 beautiful, sincere
women, from all walks of life, as potential
mates for our male clients."
have over 18,000 Russian Women who want
to become Russian brides."
8328 ladies selected from 44264 applicants!"
70,000 agencies X 500 women
The total Russian population is only about
FIVE MILLION Russian women looking
for western partners? Every 4-th person in the
country - that is including men, women, babies,
old folks... everyone!?
I don't think so. Doesn't
sound right, does it?
However, if you'll ponder
upon this puzzle for a while you might come
to conclusion, that if some agencies have not
five, not even fifty, but hundreds of Russian
brides websites with the same women on them,
in this case the numbers could be reconciled
with common sense.
And you would be absolutely
right! That's exactly how it is - a few crime
syndicates running hundreds upon hundreds of
