A Foreign Affair

Postby truthseeker1 » Thu Oct 01, 2009 6:25 pm

I searched this forum for "A Foreign Affair" but could not find any information. Does anyone know about this agency and its affiliates or has any experience with them, whether they are full of scammers or pro-daters? They are listed on the Gold list on Jims website, which is supposedly a list of outstanding agencies, which Jim says he will use first in his search. Does anyone have any comments on these Jim's lists?

Following is an article of a journalist's experience with A Foreign Affair:

It seems from this report that this agency might be legitimate !!

Dear Truthseeker1:

If "A Foreign Affair" (AFA) is a scamming site, then there is no legal dating sites at all, all of them are scamming ones. AFA is to the international dating industry what Coca-Cola is to the soda industry. It is the most respected dating site on Internet, who featured in international media such as The NY Times, The Washington Post or BBC. There might be any scammer amongst the ladies featuring there, of course, you cannot avoid it 100% but this agency deserves the best of my considerations.

I hope it helps. Cheers.

As you can read by my user name that I'm an ex client of A Foreign Affair.
I used this company in February 2008 and I thought this was a trusted and respectable site BUT I was wrong.
A Foreign Affair has the most scammers listed with It's data base.
When a person looks past the altered photos on the women's profiles and reads the disclaimer on the AFA web site, you will notice It says, " No background checks are performed on any of the women"
This is why AFA is the biggest scam site in the web.
Even the president and directors of the company tell lies.
I was corresponding to Nikolaev.
The agency in Nikolaev is called www. a
These people translate all correspondence via AFA.
These people are a full-on scam letter writing agency.
On 3 different occasions I have given the president of AFA proof that a particular woman AND the agency people scam foreign men.
On 3 different occasions, John Adams has made up pathetic excuses and brushed the evidence aside.
I also sent a complaint about the agency to Jim from
Jim told me he has never heard of a slavgirl before.
Jim told me that online dating ukraine, and army of brides, are all scam sites and men should avoid using these sites.
But guess what?...They all have the same A Foreign Affair women on them who have aslavgirl as their base agency.
Jim told me that online dating ukraine allows the women to have more then one profile, in some cases, up to 3 different profiles.
I showed Jim multipole profiles of women with online dating ukraine and guess what?..They were all women AND who are listed with AFA.
Jim never did anything about this...WHY?..Because the same women are listed with AFA and hey are on the ' paid' list. :)
At one time, AFA and were both listed on jims ' gold' list but he has since removed after I mentioned this a another forum.
Can you understand what I'm saying?
Slanderous personal attack comments removed by mod

John adams told me he removed the woman that I complained about from all he's sites.
In fact, I received a email from AFA employee Joe Nail to confirm that the woman is from all sites. I send an email back to Joe nail and mention the woman is still listed with her AFA profile # on
Joe sends me a email saying that, this is not a AFA site.
Joe is the director of

Then I spot the woman at the May 2009 socials in the recent tours photos section.
I sent an email to John Adams to ask why..He said, ' well, she may have just decided to turn up'..
I mentioned that he told m he removed her as a client, full-stop.
Add to this, the women who attend the socials are arranged by the agency.
Add to this, the socials are invitation only.
Add to this, AFA pay for the the taxis to pick up the women to take them to the Deliruim Nightclub.

What a joke this A Foreign Affair is turning out to be.

Another complaint I make to John Adams is the woman asked me for money.
He says I've imagined the scam. I remind him of the email that i have on my inbox with the woman's banking account details on it.
Would any hacker like the numbers?

When you read into the tour programming, it says the socials are ' Invitation only'. In other words, It's closed to outside people.
On a forum, one American guy states that, there were women in attendance because their friend was listed with AFA but they themselves are not interested in dating foreign men.
The same guy states that there was even hookers at the socials.

To sum up AFA and Jims agency scams, these people support scammers and rip off you, the paying male customer.
The women was 34 and I was 43 at the time.

Don't use A Foreign Affair and don't trust Jims advise.

I received this email today from Jim of


This is Jim. I received the letter below today. It is from Wayne. He posts on your forum as 'afa ex client'. If you want the header, I will send it. This Wayne has NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO idea how dating agencies work. He had a problem with one girl and he is on a warpath. John refunded him, but this guy, as you can plainly see, is nuts.

I want you to post his letter to me below and tell everyone that Jim says that he simply does not understand. HE is his own worst enemy. I don't know if the thread is locked, but I cannot post there.

You never replied to me in the past. I understand that you are busy. But allowing this guy to attack John AND me without the ability to defend myself is not fair.

Thanks for the help.

Best of luck,

DREAM-MARRIAGE.COM is a HUGE scam! They made AGENCYSCAMS.NET to discredit
me. They copied's style step by step.

to Jim:

I don't know if the thread is locked, but I cannot post there.

no, the thread is not locked, but we have a new rule: a member must have at least 10 postcount in other sections of the forum to be able to post in this section. This is done EXACTLY to avoid posts like from afa ex client, as we are fed up with it. We have to know a poster at least a bit before he jumps into this section.

I only have a brief comment about this site. I paid for a Platinum Membership, then a day later canceled. They refunded my money which was decent of them.

They charge quite a bit for e mail exchanges with their clients, which seemed high priced to me.

They have videos, on their site, of their organized tours to several different countries. I watched a portion of their last tour to the Ukraine. It was video taped in a night club, and showed lots of drinking and dancing. There were comments dubbed over the video, by men who were there. They made some pointed remarks about the visit to Kharkov. Said the "ladies" were hooking up with the men and leaving the club quickly.

The entire video, plus coments, reminded me of my college fraternity days many years ago. We used to have parties like that with sororities. The object was to get half snockered and meet a woman to take home or to the back seat of the car for sex. I am not saying that all the women the men meet on these tours are prostitutes, but it didn't look or sound very romantic to me. Since the majority of the men were middle aged, and the women were in their mid 20's, the whole thing had a tawdry look to it, imo!

Which is why I resigned and asked for my money back.

Proceed with caution. :lol:
