    I was wondering how to save all the information from our profiles before we delete them or should we just have it removed and forget about it?

    I found this interesting from the US Embasy in Ukraine. It is dated 2001 so I guess we are way hehind on finding this out and it sounds just like UALadys scam.

    "Love Trap" - Internet Fraud for the Lovelorn
    Ukraine has recently experienced burgeoning crop of escort services and "marriage brokers" plying their trade on the Internet.
    Whereas some of the companies may be legitimate, there is an increasing number of phony agencies operating in Ukraine. Similar to a dating service, these agencies profess to offer full service assistance: emailing photographs, arranging relationships, translating love letters, purchasing presents on behalf of would-be romantics, even organizing trips to Ukraine to meet that "special someone" in person.
    Naturally, each of these services requires payment, mostly through direct wire transfer organizations such as Western Union or MoneyGram. As the victim becomes more deeply hooked, the fees and cost of incidentals rise.
    Ultimately, there have been reports of victims actually traveling to Ukraine to meet their future bride, only to be left bereft (with a wallet up to several thousand dollars lighter) as the erstwhile fiancee regretfully informs the victim that a) she has decided to stay with her current husband, or b) can't marry for some other reason - or even left standing at the airport. Some of these scams have been organized by enterprising young women who are not involved with an agency.
    RSO cautions against falling into the new Ukrainian "Love Trap".

    This is interesting and we all need to file a complaint. I checked and bookmarked this cite last fall when I started communicating with CC and there were no complaints so I thought it was legit. We need to change that.[8D]

    I visited Confidential Connections 2 years ago for 1 week in July. Had no problems with the girl I visited.

    I also corresponded with another girl from there. The girl was hilarious. She would forward me letters from guys 50-60 years old and laughed at them asking how guys old enough to be my grandfather think they actually have a chance with me. I still actually have those letters. Her cousin was a translater there and translated all her letters for her.

    She left a while later. Got a scholarship at a medical college.
    Or perhaps thrown out by the agency for being a little TOO legit???
    Who knows.
    Interesting thing is her cousin also kind of "disappeared" after supposadely leaving for a vacation and never returning. They said she found a new job and would not be returning. Kind of fishy if you ask me.

    So while I am sure there are plenty of scammers in any agency , there are plenty of girls that are not also. Thats just how it crumbles doing **** like this.

    Found some of her old letters.




    ------------
    Hah you made me laugh with your mail! Smart ass! You are so damn right about everything you said!!! But, well, I don't really care much about what they do... as long as they don't bother me about letters from old assholes, when I said to change my profile I have warned them not to bother me if I still get mails from someone elder than 35! So they don't!!! Pack it in! I don't give a ****!

    ------------------
    I didn't write these days, wasn't feeling well... I feel like going to kill myself too...
    Well, I don't have access to the Internet anywhere except here, in this agency and Irene doesn't have either. But probably we will go to the internet cafe or something. What's your yahoo address?

    ------------------
    whos computer is that you are sitting at while holding that black cat in that picture?? do you have a computer at home? Tell your cousin to help you talk on yahoo messanger so this criminal agency doesn't take anymore of my money..
    ----------------

    Hi! Hahaha yeah you are a very smart ass! Irene works for Confidential Connections! I didn't want to tell you, I was waiting for you to guess it... you did!!! )

    How did you find it out tell me... She's been working only for a month or so...
    ----------

    You'd get depression if you move to Ukraine 100% !!!!
    Are you happy to see me on Top 100 ladies page? hahaha... I don't really care! I get around 15-20 mails per day! Can you believe it???? Hahaha... I don't reply of course... You are the youngest by the way!!!
    What about you? How many mails do you get and how many girls do you correspond with? Do you keep in touch with that girl from Zhitomir by the way? The one you came to visit this year...
