Each email will cost her two translations, one for yours and one for her reply.
The fees can be substantial and it is not unusual for "clients" to borrow money to fund this.
The more unscrupulous agencies will also have details of family members should the "client" fail to pay or skip the country. It often makes me wonder as I have seen photo of a "lady" on one website and same photo on another site with different name, age and city.
Best thing is plan a holiday and if you happen to meet her, then its a bonus.
I am registered with one site and I get mail from ladies left and right but, really makes me wonder as some of them seem just too unreal..
I found a nice Chinese lady through a free Asian dating website.
We started e-mailing each other (yes, a Chinese agency is representing her and I'm sure a translator is between us).She is the same age as me (40) and divorced with a child. She claims she only wants to find her "soul mate", marry, and live a happy life; and, of course, I am sure she wants to improve her quality of life. I mean I am not purchasing minutes or paying per e-mail or anything of that nature. The dating site and translator must be making money somehow.She wants me to visit her in China, and I am seriously thinking about purchasing tickets. I am still a bit skeptical because of all the negative reviews and scams on various websites. The only risk I have is the cost of the trip and hotel accommodations. Your lady may have borrowed money for these services. Can she communicate with you via Skype/MSNYou are exactly right, sir.Since I wrote my original post, I found the agency's website that is representing her. They are charge her a translation fee every time I send an e-mail.I wrote back and told them what I had discovered, and I wouldn't be writing until I was ready to visit her. I know their wages are low, but she is an engineer.Hopefully, she earns a reasonable living to pay for the service.
