As a lawyer, I got very used to hearing a quite famous line about lawyers. In fact my then wife, from an earlier life, was the one who most frequently loved to mock me by repeating it at every party we ever attended. But I didn’t mind because it really is a way for people to make fun of lawyers that does no harm to anyone. Everybody loves to hate lawyers, but there generally remains an underlying respect for the fact that without the best lawyers, the truly gifted and honorable ones, the world today would be a harsher and much less free world than it is. Ok, ok, ok – I digressed, but there is a point.
The line was “Liar, Lawyer – What’s the Difference”.
So what’s the point? It has recently been brought to my attention that AsianBeauties.com has changed its stripes and is now disguising itself as AsianDate.com. So I started to do a little bit of investigating and the more I saw, the more reminded I was of the above mentioned humorous attack on lawyers. I kept thinking about that line and interposing the words to AsianDate.com, AsianBeauties.com – What’s the Difference?
Sadly, the one thing missing was any hint of humor. What I am about to report is far, far from funny. After scamming thousands (or hundreds of thousands?) of truly innocent victims out of millions (or hundreds of millions?) of dollars, AsianBeauties.com has so completely lost credibility in the world of international online dating that it has attempted to superficially reinvent itself as AsianDate.com. In order to carry on screwing the people it pretends to be serving out of copious amounts of cash, sometimes a substantial portion of their life savings, while pretending to be assisting them in finding true love, AsianBeauties.com has found it necessary to seemingly disappear and come back as someone else.
You will also find these sites referred to as AsianBeauties or Asian Beauties and AsianDate or Asian Date respectively.
But who exactly is AsianDate.com?
Well, let’s start here:
Type into your browser the domain name: AsianDate.com
You will land on a page that appears to be “AsianDate.com”, and ostensibly is a new, exciting Asian dating website. (See photo #1 below). Got it?
Now close your browser and start again. It’s important to close your browser so there’s no chance of missing how they are gaming people (and probably gaming Google too).
Now type into your browser the domain name: AsianBeauties.com. You’ll land on almost exactly the same page, with one minor exception. Now it is “AsianDate.com – Your Newfound AsianBeauties”. (See photo #2 below)
Note the line that says “The best Anti-scam protection in the industry.”
GAG! VOMIT! PUKE! DIE LAUGHING!!!
Okay, maybe I was wrong. Actually maybe there is some humor in this. I mean it’s funny that anyone could come up with this crap.
It is true that individual scammers who sneak onto other dating sites aren’t going to be on AsianBeauties.com (er, excuse me, AsianDate.com) because they don’t allow just anyone to join. The men have to be ready, willing and able to cough over money by the bucket full and the women are either innocent victims themselves, who have paid upwards of $3,000 to $5,000 to the Chinese Agencies representing AsianDate.com (er, excuse me, AsianBeauties.com) and whose profiles are then used for numerous scam activities of which they are not aware, or they are simply false profiles of women who are in the employ of those same scamming agencies of the website.
What independent scammers could survive in that atmosphere? Scammers join dating sites to steal other people’s money, not to have it stolen from them. So while it is true that AsianDate (AsianBeauties) does, by the very nature of its own complete ripoff activities, coincidentally protect you from outside scammers , there is unfortunately one monstrous scammer they fail to protect you from, and that is themselves.
But, I digress. Back to the AsianDate-AsianBeauties dual personality.
Go ahead and join the new AsianDate.com. This may change as they get their act together, or more of us write about them, but when I joined about an hour ago on the same day I am posting this article, the welcome page on AsianDate.com invited me to complete my profile on AsianBeauties.com. I kid you not (See photo #3 below).
So here’s the final wrap on this little segment on AsianDate.com/AsianBeauties.com…
AsianBeauties.com is the most notorious of all Scam websites in the Asian/Chinese niche. Now they are trying to disguise themselves as AsianDate.com. But go ahead and join AsianDate.com and see who you’ve become a member of… You guessed it – AsianBeauties.com – still alive and kicking. (Again, see photo #3 below). Once you've joined and signed in, nothing has changed and everything is the same. AsianDate.com operates exactly as AsianBeauties.com operated (of which you will read much more in future blogs). The scam just goes on and on and on.
So the answer to the question "AsianDate.com, AsianBeauties.com - What's the difference?" is "There is no difference! None at all!".
Do you think this isn’t important? Do you think this is just my personal pet peeve? Think again. If sites like these are allowed to survive, if Google and Bing and Paypal and Visa and Mastercard and Baidu and countless other players on the internet continue to support them, then the internet, and the world, is lost to us normal members of the human race, and we are doomed to be the playthings of an entirely corrupt way of life on the internet.
AsianBeauties.com and AsianDate.com are the enemy of any respectable Chinese or Asian Dating site there is, but sadly there are precious few dating sites in this or any niche that are truly respectable and a substantial number that are actively involved in criminal, or at least semi-criminal, activity.
We need to seriously endeavor to take a giant leap from this small community we have founded and try to expand across the internet the concept that honesty and decency are the true forces that must prevail.
I am aware this seems overdramatic and maybe even self-serving, but I can’t help it. I am disgusted by what I see as the future that my children (and yours) will inherit if we don’t take a stand on this ussue today. And by we, I don’t just mean we individual users of the internet. I mean especially the huge international corporations that profit the most from, and have the biggest hand in shaping, the internet, now and in the future. If Google, and Bing and the other major search engines are going to continue to rank these nefarious websites, and/or their fake websites they use as fronts (ala Asian Beauties use of Asian Date), thereby herding innocent victims to their financial doom, and even worse accepting their ill begotten money by the millions to promote them across the internet in their online advertising, then Google and Bing are clearly part of the problem and not part of the solution.
If credit card companies, processors and payment venues such as Visa and Mastercard and Paypal and countless others are going to continue to willfully accept commissions to assist these sites to profit from their fraudulent activities then likewise they have become part of the problem and not part of the solution.
Are these companies simply turning a blind eye to, and therefore willfully profiting from, these obvious criminal activities of countless dating sites like AsianDate (aka AsianBeauties)? If so, aren’t they also guilty of aiding and abetting such activities?
More on AsianDate.com (AsianBeauties.com), Chnlove.com, AForeignAffair.com (LoveMe.com), GagaMatch.com and many other Asian and Chinese scam sites coming up soon. Then we’ll branch out to their sister sites in other cultural niches. Sooner or later, maybe Google and the others will finally wake up if we just keep talking about it.
For detailed information about how these sister sites operate please see our earlier article titled "Speaking of Scams, How About AsianBeauties.com?" and watch for future blogs to come.
