Upon first glance, AmoLatina.com looks like a legitimate site offering a legitimate process of meeting Latin women. However, if you know about their parent company, Anastasia International, you might come up with a different opinion.
Over the years, Anastasia International has been consistently accused of being involved in online dating scams. They continually create new web sites, most of which (if not all) receive many complaints from their customers. The company has been taken to court multiple times and has settled outside of court more than once.
An international dating scam can occur in many ways, but it often involves a foreign woman supposedly sending letters to an American man. In reality, the women will write an "introduction" letter with a seemingly exact man in mind, but then that letter will be sent to multiple members of the site that matche that specific criteria.
Before you invest money and time into an international dating site such as AmoLatina.com, do some research. The internet is full of information and user testimonials about international dating sites that are involved with scams, such as Anastasia International. By reading through the reviews and testimonials, you will get a better idea of how these scamming companies hurt people around the world, both financially and emotionally. Reading true stories and experiences from people who have dealt with these scamming companies is the most eye-opening and influential way to understand how dating scams truly harm individuals. Visit www.agencyscams.com for in-depth information on legitimate dating companies, scamming dating companies, and even a list of specific women (with pictures) who are involved in dating scams. Visiting sites such as this will educate you in making an informed and safe decision about your dating experience.
Another main service at AmoLatina is their tour service. They offer tours throughout the year to Latin American countries where you can meet beautiful women in a casual atmosphere. The tours do not include airfare, but they are almost otherwise all-inclusive. With the purchase of a tour from AmoLatina, you will receive complete hotel accommodations, three socials where you can meet available women in the area, daily breakfast, intra-tour airport and hotel transfers, professional interpreters, three city tours, and unlimited introductions to the women who have profiles on AmoLatina. There is an American representative on every tour available twenty-four hours a day. It seems that AmoLatina is attempting to compete with its legitimate competitors who offer very similar tours.
Another prime feature of the AmoLatina site is called "Date a Lady." The employees at AmoLatina will set up your date down to the last detail so all you have to do is show up and enjoy it. After a minimum of five messages have been sent back and forth, two people are eligible to utilize the "Date a Lady" service. The service sets up a date at the foreign woman's home agency office for a minimum of an hour and a half, along with a translator, to see if there is chemistry. If you enjoy your date, you have the option to extend the meeting and move it to another location. The translator will continue to aid your conversations and accompany you on your date for $15 an hour.
Joining the site is free, but to participate in the site communication you must purchase "credits." Each time you send or open a letter, you will need to pay ten credits. For twenty credits, AmoLatina charges $15.99 (eighty cents per credit). They offer better deals as you increase the amount of credits; if you decide to purchase forty credits, you will be paying seventy-five cents per credit at $30. If you would like to purchase a larger group of credits, you can choose 160 credits at sixty cents per credit, five hundred at fifty cents per credit, or a thousand at forty cents per credit.
AmoLatina also posts their prices for the tours they host throughout the year. Currently, their tour page shows the available upcoming six-day tour options. A trip to Medellin, Columbia, excluding airfare, is priced at $1695. The other tour coming up, a trip to Lima, Peru, is also priced at $1695. Again, these prices to not include the necessary cost of airfare.
