Some ads may seem like it’s a legitimate job of interpreting correspondence for a dating agency’s clients, while others don’t even attempt to mask the essence of the job.
An ad placed on the site says the following: We are seeking attractive girls, preferably of model appearance, for cooperation with our agency and receiving stable income. The essence of the work is to correspond with foreign men on a dating site (no intimacy! The foreigner pays to the site-company to use the services of the marriage agency, i.e. Men like to send gifts, starting from flowers, Iphones, tablets, photo cameras, and ending with precious stone jewellery. You can simply give it a try, it doesn’t oblige you to anything. If you don’t like it, you can leave, which I doubt;) With all questions, call or write to the email address here!!!
Dig more, and you will find forums where “translators” complain about unscrupulous operators, who lure them with promises of great earnings but in reality pay only $0.50 per letter and $2/hour for chat.
Some substitutes list names of marriage agency owners who make them work for 2-3 months without pay, explaining it by problems at the bank and limits on transactions.
One woman posted a warning on a social networking site, saying the owner of the agency she had been working for didn’t pay her and other translators 18-20 thousand hryvnia each (about $860-950) for a several months work. It is a common complaint from men that Ukrainian women they meet through PPL sites never allow any intimacy, even as much as a kiss or holding hands.
She complained about delivering the work and being scammed out of her pay. The practice became more understandable when I came across a forum post by a translator, who said it was her responsibility during meetings of Ukrainian women with foreign men to ensure there was no intimate contact, as this could cause criminal prosecution for the agency for solicitation (prostitution).
Job ads seeking “translators” state that meeting men in person isn’t compulsory: if a woman desires, she can limit her involvement by online communication only.
Other translators state that they have no pity for men, who they call disgusting and despicable.
Use an online translating program, and the ugly truth about PPL dating sites is staring you in the face.
If this makes you sick in your stomach, you are not alone: I thought I knew everything about this industry, but even I was shocked by the horrific reality of PPL hydra.
“Initially he enters your trust, tells how good and honest he is, pays the first salary, and then doesn’t pay for several months.” “Do not get involved with this scum. This is why when foreigners come to visit their prospective brides they are surprised that a girl who was so open and affectionate in her correspondence, suddenly becomes prudish.
It seems to be the usual practice for translators who “lead” certain profiles (i.e.
One lady wrote in a forum: “I am shocked that in our country Ukraine it’s a whole business, it is a crime to mislead people, I think that authorities should be looking into it.” Many posters condemn the practice saying they feel ashamed for the image that Ukrainian women get due to its notoriety, others try to defend their working for marriage agencies, insisting it’s not a scam.
