Oh, but men can be so gullible and easy to manipulate sometimes, especially when you know the right “buttons” to push and how to go straight for their “smaller brain.” Make a search on Google for “Scam Chinese Dating Sites” and one of the websites you’ll get is Asianbeauties.com. Despite the fact that it says everywhere in black and white that this is a scam site, men still fall all over themselves trying to meet the drop-dead gorgeous women on this site, most of whom aren’t even real. Go figure.
Just read the stories of countless men who finally decided to open their eyes and face the ugly reality that they were just being led on and being robbed of their money. All their accounts sound almost the same. Here are a few from men who shared their bad experiences on the said site (excerpts borrowed from: http://blog.chinalovematch.net/blog/article/speaking-of-scams-how-about-asianbeautiescom/2)
Story #1 “…That was supposed to be a site catering to men AND women looking for soul mates yet they made it impossible to arrange a meeting EXCEPT we could arrange dates ONLY after having corresponding with the same lady (to meet) through at least 5 letters. Of course for the "date" we provide our own transportation to China or wherever ( at least 95% of the ladies are Chinese supposedly) at which time we had to meet a "translator" who was an Asian Beauties staff member and meet the lady at a predetermined place accompanied by the translator for an hour and a half. Of course there was a huge charge for that and IF the lady agreed to an extension of the "date" it would be extended for several more hours and I think accompanied by the "translator" at an additional fee and I still haven't figured out how to have any alone time with the lady. Some date huh?...”
Story #2 “All my letters and the women's letters go through a translator who works for an independent company which in turn is contracted with Asianbeauties. The more translations they do, the more money they make. So often I would receive 2 letters from a woman on the same day. I did not realize that one of the letters was fake.
In one instance with regard to a woman I met, I found out that all the initial letters were fabrications of the translator and did not come from the woman. Many of the facts that were given to me were blatantly false such as number of children, parents alive or deceased, type of work, etc.
Once I decided to meet this woman, she was contacted by the translator and told that she could have my letters if she paid a fee equivalent to $4,000 USD. She paid this fee. I did not find out about this until I met the women.”
Story #3 “After loging on to Asian Beauties & receiving numerious letters, I selected one young lady from Shenyang and started writing letters. Everything went well until I told her that I was coming for a visit and that I wanted to see her. Suddenly she had a business trip that very weekend and no I couldn't just show up. We ended up talking that weekend she had her business trip and when I brought it up, the arguements began. Once biten but not shy....lol. I started another conversation with a different young lady from a different part of China and I could see the same pattern developing. Like the gentlemen before, I started asking for photographs and I did get a few pictures. After analysing them, they weren't of the same girl; different hair style, nose was a different shape.”
Almost every time, the men say they become suspicious sooner or later (sometimes, even from the very beginning, and other times they are already aware that the site is a scam) but they still go ahead and pursue some of the beautiful women and continue communicating with them despite the questionable behaviors and lame excuses that keep piling up.
The ladies are just too irresistible! How can they just turn their backs on the possibility of being with a stunning Asian woman without even trying?
Sure, she only has a couple of photos posted and she keeps making excuses why she can’t send you new ones that will confirm that she’s real; maybe she even starts to get angry because you’re questioning her honesty. Okay, she suddenly has a business trip and can’t meet you when you tell her you’re flying to see her in a few weeks. It’s still possible that all her excuses are true and she’s the real deal, right?
In the back of your head (the one on top of your shoulders), you’re already thinking something’s iffy. But your other head just can’t get over how beautiful these women are and they want to talk to you! How can you say no? You would be an idiot to refuse! Actually, you’re being an idiot for ignoring the big, red arrows in your brain pointing to the even bigger, red sign that says “Scammer!”
It should not take you too long to do some fair amount of research. Type “Scam” + “Chinese Dating Sites” on Google and, voila! You can easily save yourself a lot of heartache, time, and money by spending an hour or two reading blogs and forums about scam sites, such as Asianbeauties.com. If you’re already a member of a Chinese matchmaking site and you suddenly feel suspicious, just type the name of the site plus the word “scam” on Google to find out for sure.
