I have heard that Chernovtsy is one of the worst places to deal with agencies. Everyone I have talked to that has been there said if you meet the girl through an agency in Chernovty, be careful!
: A few uncrupulous agencies have spoiled it for the many. Not all are bad and I get the feeling that the one you picked is just fine seeing that they go out of their way to accommodate you.
