How much will I have to pay for opening a letter from a woman?
Everything depends on woman’s activity, popularity, English skills (because if she needs a translator – the price will be a little higher) and availability of Internet (if she needs to use agency’s computer, price as well will be little higher)
How can I get a direct contact?
To contact a woman directly you have to be a US citizen and to fill out the IMBRA form (click here to download the form). After that you have 2 variants: either to open 15 messages from the woman or try and inquire her personal details paying a $50 fee (expedite service), sum is not refundable, therefore make sure she will agree to provide it.
Expedite service may not be used if you didn’t open any messages from the woman. Sending contact details via messages is not allowed. Any attempts will be tracked and canceled. You need to go through the IMBRA clearance for $40 when you request a lady's info for the first time if you are a US citizen or resident.
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 and may violate the IMBRA law, which may in turn jeopardize a lady's chance to get a US visa in the future and men's chance to sponsor a K-1 visa. 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.
Do you offer any discounts?
After opening 15 paid messages from a lady, you can request to have the price of her letters lowered to 5 credits. You are also entitled to this reduction if you have requested the lady's contact information using the expedite service. In case the lady's contact information does not include an email address, the price can be further reduced to 1 credit per letter; however, translation is not provided at this price. If you want to keep using our translation services, the price will have to stay at 5 credits per letter.
What is trust level?
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.
