Stevieboy!  There are folk for whom using an agent should simply involve getting their fingers scanned. It's called value added service.
Russia doesn't have form for making stuff like this up.
He really did say that

Hopefully sorting my RU visa out this week, business, full monty, one day service, costing a fortune, and I've still got to get my FP's done in London. Gone through Real Russia, hope it will go ok....

Luckily I pass through Londres a lot so no issue.

Slumming it on Easyjet for the MAN-DME flight tho - even the flexi too much of a bargain. Not sorted the DME-CEK bit out yet tho, might take the train - there's a 1 day 5 hours one now overnight - last time I did it by train it took about 3 days.....

Got a bit of business in Moscow first though, hope Moscow has improved since 2004........

Hi Ste.. I got a good looking bespectacled brunette lass and managed to get her to smile. I thought the staff were much more efficient and friendly than the UK Irish Cypriot equivalents I've dealt with.

Thank God for out-sourcing.

ATTN:  Any of the more experienced travelers to Russia from the USA.

I am wondering if anyone has used Ambassador company to get their visa for Russia?

Be careful what you wish for, you might get it.
