Why am I getting so many letters?
Most female profiles are submitted by our local partners who meet them in person and check their passport. We also monitor for any suspicious activity, such as mass mailing to other members, asking for money, etc. If we have doubts about a girl’s identity or the information in her profile, we may contact her in person for additional proof. Due to the large number or profiles, we cannot vouch for every single one of our members, but you can always contact us if you see something suspicious about a member’s profile or behaviour, and we will investigate. Also each female profile is assigned a Trust Level, which shows the degree to which it has been verified by us. A Trust Level of 100% means the lady is 100% real. We also have a handy guide for spotting scammers. After getting a lady's contact details, you can order a background check.
Yes, you can find some on our Testimonials page.
Unlike some other dating sites, we do not charge a flat monthly fee. Instead, you can place your profile on our site for free, and you get full access to the site and all women profiles for free. You can use our search option to look through ladies' profiles according to your criteria and send free messages to them. Only if someone responds and you decide to continue correspondence, then you pay for translation of the messages between you and the lady. Please note that the translation must be done by our trusted local interpreters. We do not allow use of translator software (such as Google Translate), as well as third party translation services.
Join for free, fill out your profile (be sure to upload your pictures), then send a message to that member or just a "smile", indicating you are interested. It's free. They can then view your profile and respond if they choose to. In such case, if you decide to continue correspondence, then you pay for translation of the messages between you and the lady.
Yes. Once you become a member, you can purchase credits by credit card as well as other payment options.
Site members can send out introductory mailings to advertise themselves. If you don’t want to receive those, you can change the status of your profile to Invisible, allowing only the people you have contacted yourself to write to you.
Either your profile is inactive (please check profile status in the control panel), or you have more than one unopened message from the member you are trying to write to. In the latter case, you’ll need to open those messages first. If you have deleted them, please contact us.
To pay online with a credit card (we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover), log in to your profile and go to "Buy Credits" (your profile must be active for you to be able to pay). Alternatively, you can pay using this secure form (in this case, the payment may take up to 24 hours to go through). Other payment options are listed here.
If you want to get a lady’s direct contact details, you have to open at least 15 messages from the lady *. At this point you have the right to request her contact details. To do this, go to her profile and click "Request contact details" on the Custom Menu. Please note that sending personal contact information through our messaging system is not allowed, even after you have opened 15 or more messages from a lady. If you want to exchange personal contact information with a lady, please contact us.
We do not allow contact between members outside our website before they have officially exchanged contact information. Outside contact includes our competitor websites, social network websites, skype, etc. Outside contact violates our Terms and Conditions. It also opens possibilities for fraud. We do not allow our ladies to contact men outside the website, or to respond to men's attempts to circumvent our rules. If you are contacted outside our website by someone claiming to be a lady from the website, please be cautious as this could be a scam attempt. All of the above applies only until you have officially exchanged contact information. After the contact exchange you are free to communicate without our involvement.
Yes, this service costs 1.8 credits per minute. You’ll need to contact us at least 24 hours in advance (unless you already have the lady’s phone number) and tell us which lady you want to talk to, and at what time. Our interpreter will do the rest.
Yes, you can order an interpreted videocall. You can make your request by contacting us. The price for videochatting with the lady is 2.5 credits per minute. The minimum call duration is 10 minutes, which means that the system will charge your account for the first 10 minutes automatically when you start talking to the lady. Please make sure you have enough credits on your profile account before starting the videochat. We need time to contact the lady’s local agency, or the lady herself, and make sure she will be available at the desired time therefore the videocall should be ordered in advance. Please note that exchanging personal contact information during your videocall will not be allowed.
After opening 15 messages from a lady*, if the price for translation is more than 5 credits, then you can request to have it lowered to 5 credits.
First of all, it's NOT the list of people this particular member is corresponding with. To be on the friend list you have to send her or him a specific invitation and he or she has to accept it. Once accepted, you and the other member appear in both of your friend lists. You cannot appear on somebody’s friend list if they are not on yours, and vice versa. People on your friends list have access to your private photos (those that are protected by password from everyone else). To add someone to your friend list, go to their profile and select “Friend Member” on the menu. If they accept your offer, you will appear on each other’s friend lists. You can delete people from your friend list from the Communicator section.
Remember that the list of your friends is viewable by any member or even a visitor to the site. Having a lot of friends on your list or having just a few, or even none, is a personal choice. Friends listed on members' profiles mean different things to different people. For some, having a lot of friends demonstrates that they are popular. Some prefer not to list any friends to keep their relationships private. Yet for others listing just one person as a friend means they are serious about them. Use your own judgement in interpreting the meaning of a lady’s friends list or lack of it.
The trust level is a credibility rating given to a female profile by our staff. A staff member can rate a profile on one or more of multiple scales: passport scans, live meeting, phone conversation, video, correspondence. Some are rated according to the staff member's own judgement (such as passport scans or phone calls), and others (like correspondence or meetings) according to the feedback we receive from our male members. Combined, these ratings make up the trust level. Each category carries different weight (e.g., feedback on a meeting is more important than the passport scan); the exact formula is complex and classified, so it cannot be used to artificially raise the trust level. A trust level of 100% means that we have received definitive proof that the woman behind the profile is a real person, and all her communications originate from herself. This doesn't mean, of course, that anyone with less than 100% is automatically fake or dishonest, although you should be wary of profiles with a trust level of 40% or less. Note that the absence of a trust level is not the same as a low trust level. A female profile doesn't have a trust level by default and may never get one, unless it gives us a reason to rate it.
To make a picture private, check the box labelled “private photo” after uploading it and save the changes. To view someone else’s private pictures, you need to request access from them by clicking the “Submit request” button in the picture browser in their profile. You can keep track of the people who have granted you access to their private photos in the Communicator; access to your own private photos is likewise granted from there.
If you are trying to call our US toll-free number (starting with "800" or "866") when you are outside the continental US, it won't work (this may or may not include Canada, Puerto Rico and Hawaii). If that's the case, please use our regular (toll) numbers or contact us via live chat 24 hours a day. Other than that our phone support is open 24 hours 7 days a week, so if you can't get through for whatever reason, be sure to email or online chat us about it.
If you have sent an email to our support staff, please note that we try to answer all emails within 24 hours. If you aren’t getting a response for more than 24 hours, please check your spam (or "junk mail") folder to make sure our reply wasn’t caught by your spam filter. If you cannot find it, please contact us by phone or in the chat to make sure we got your letter.
If you are waiting for a response from a lady, it might take anywhere from 1 to 3 days, or sometimes more. If you are not receiving a notification about a response in your email, please log into your profile on our site and check your Inbox. Her response may be waiting for you there. Our system automatically notifies you by email when you have mail in your Inbox on our site, but sometimes these automatic notifications may be blocked by your provider's spam filters.
* Which messages count? Please note that in these instances we count only the letters that you paid to be translated. So her introductory letter that we translate free of charge does not count. Note that while you pay only when you open her messages to you but not vice versa, the fee that you pay actually covers the translation of both your messages to her and her messages to you.
