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.
Personally, I would avoid anything that is advertizing as free service. If they advertize as free service, ask yourself how are they going to make money.

She will never try to arouse your sympathy with a view to get some money from you. They are sincerely looking for someone they can spend the rest of their lives with.
