Your first post and you asking a question that has been covered repeatedly by previous discussion and comment.  Might I politely suggest you do a couple hours of archive research and then come back to this thread with any unanswered questions you might have.

 is a good tool to find women and than look in local city to find their local agency.  You do not have to pay a dime to use  search engine.

Attractive younger women do not like answering a bunch of letters and skyping with strangers.  The agency does the letter writing for them.  The agency may call the girl on the phone to get additional information if they really find a fool sending letters weekly to get some additional personal information.

Now the new features they have with women on line is another scam.  My wife's cousin does this to pay for her college and for clothes.  That being said my wife's cousin will marry a rich young good looking millionaire who likes a controlling RW.  She has yet to meet any man in person who has come to see her.  Since she is only 19 years old nothing wrong with taking dirty old men money on the internet.

Paxton, there are some wonderful women on the site in question.  Most of these women, the good one's that is, are not aware of the scamming, many think the site will help them.

Paxton both skakespear and myself have probably more knowledge and experience with and about Anastasia than anyone.  Why don't you PM either or both of us.

Paxton, I would recommend you open a account on Vkontakte (vk.com).  This is the Russian version of Facebook and it is free.  Before you invest anytime with a woman on Anastasia, find her on vk first.  About 2/3 of the women on Anastasia can be found very easily on vk using their search engine and the  information Anastasia provides on the women.  If she will talk to you for free on vk, then it is less likely she is a scammer.  Many will ignore you on vk.  I suggest you then ignore them on Anastasia.  My only suggestion is to at least chat with them or get at least one letter from them before contacting them on vk.  Contacting them on vk when they have no knowledge of you is a bit weird.  Also, Anastasia poses as some of the women using their profiles without their knowledge, so make sure when you send a letter to them on vk you mention your contact with them on Anastasia.  Most know Anastasia writes letters on their behalf.  You may want to check out my post in this section about using the Russian social networking site.  I've developed one very good friendship on vk with a woman I met on Anastasia.  We talk every day.  I have three more casusl friendships where we chat once or twice a week and it is all free chat.  For women that don't speak English, use translate.google.com to write them notes.  It works fine for both sending in Russian and translating what they send.

Agreed!

For me it was mostly a scam.  But I can see how you can luck into a nice lady there.

Yes, agreed, I think it is about 95% scam and about 5% real.  That has been my assessment based on the number of women from Anastasia willing to talk and develop a relationship without pay per chat or pay per letter on the Russian social networking site Vkontakte (vk.com).

What I have noticed, is you can tell that different ladies have changed when writing to a certain lady letters, different style completely. Then there will be the ones that will not write letters but only want to chat and ones that will not post recent pictures from there cell phone photos.
 Yes I'm a fool for all these and more, like the one in Moldova that I had a private party deliver flowers and give her my private email address. Yes she gave me her address, they delivered flowers and took a picture but she did not want my personal email.
 One thing I have done in the past is to copy and paste her profile in google search, once there was 3 others using the same profile, I don't know maybe they were triplets.
 I do think someone was right earlier, 95% scammers, 5% real, right now I am talking with one from Anastaisia, Eleana's Models, and viewing Kerson Connection. Eleana's we use our personal emails. Kerson Connection I am not sure, at least he is a expat. I am planning my trip in May by myself.

DON'T TRUST THIS COMPANY!
You should see what they did with a Valentine’s Day contest
Offer the women a new car for the ones who do the most live chat!
They pay girls to come to their parties!
Many of their profiles are totally phony!
They have company employees who answer the e-mails
The average rip off per man is about $300-$500 but it goes into the thousands!
check out this site for the girls   www.svadba.com/news.aspx
This company is not about love and romance, it’s just about money!

I also explain what other things they do on my series of videos.
