These agencies they have real girls, writing real letters, the agency just collects a fee for delivering and/or translating of the correspondence. Another thing to watch out for, is when the fee comes as a surprise (i.e.their site advertizes "write to our women for free" and then, after you have exchanged a couple of letters with a stunning lady, and "have really hit it off", you receive an email from "Manager of the agency" telling you that in order to keep corresponding, you have to pay.
If her agency precludes you from getting her number, or if "she" repeteadly ignores your question in her letters, that is a big red flag. Apparently yes, because when I talk to some of you guys you go like "yes, I know you said I should not send money, but...
When in doubt - call or email us, we will help, for free. " oh, if I could only list here all the reasons I've heard. It's just what "she" says, and the scammers are quite inventive .
You seek beauty, love, understanding, and appreciation. You might or might not be taken aback by that request. Just as everywhere else this mysterious world of foreign brides is full of its own dangers. She might tell you she needs money to pay an interpreter to translate her letters to you. She will NEVER accept any money from you until you have actually met, and your relationship has turned into something real. A scammer will of course claim she does not care about money, but we all know actions speak louder than words.
And then all of a sudden you find it all (or so you feel). In any case, you think to yourself "anything for that wondrous woman" and take out your wallet. Man becomes awfully vulnerable when it comes to love. Because her English is not enough to let her express her feelings. No honest, respectable woman will EVER ask you for money in such situation. No matter how reasonable they might seem to you, any money requests are absurd and inappropriate. You by no means are encouraged to become cynical, paranoid, or scared.
You have just discovered someone that seems so right for you. You are in love, and ready to put the whole world to your foreign darling's feet. And you do want to know about her inner feelings for you, right? The girls' English might be poor, but it does not prevent them from being very convincing in their emails. They might simply imply it by complaining about how tough they have it. By complying with them you are setting yourself up for a big fall. There is no need to be distrustful of all foreign women seeking their love over the Internet.
You barely know her, but your heart tells you she is the one. She might tell you a heart-breaking story about her losing her job, losing her money, being in debts. Some of them are rather blunt about the money matter. A woman who has her heart in the right place will never play on your emotions. You should keep in mind that most women out there are not fakes.
