How is everyone doing?

Post by i_ca_rus » Fri Feb 29, 2008 5:13 pm

Hello to everyone. After a loooong absence someone sent me a link to a russian brides site and remembered my friends here. So how is everyone doing?
Hows things going Saul? Did you ever get that agency you wanted to open going?
Hope all is well, my best to all.

Hi Icarus :)

We are doing well thanks. We didn't go down the agency route in the end because it was difficult getting the right staff and ensuring the whole thing was 100% watertight. We are happy to help people out individually of course so nothing has changed there. We still do letter translations on request and certain background checks within the Dniepropetrovsk region of Ukraine. So...all in all we are kept very busy. How are things with you ?

Everything is going great. I still need to organize a trip to that part of the world sometime. Life is busy though. Too bad to hear about the agency not going thru, would have been nice. Ive been browsing a few of the agencies but to be honest still feel like everyone is after money and only money. So may not be the way to go.

Well, well Saul this is certainly most intriguing. I see you were pursuing the agency route. As you very well know that not everything can be 100% watertight in this industry of course. I am in agreement with you in not pursuing the matter. A very wise choice indeed. Two quotes come to mind.

Well my views are still the same. If your serious about running an agency then move to the country your recruiting women from and keep some sort of control over id verification and customer service. I can tell you as much as we like Ukraine, we are definitely not looking to live there! I would certainly not hand over the local running of an agency to anyone else.
