I belonged to this service for 2 years, which ended in April 2010. I did not use it regularly throughout the entire time, but did spend a lot of money just to read and send letters. It costs 1 credit to read a letter and one credit to write a letter. Each credit costs approximately $6 US. That adds up pretty fast when you connect with someone and want to know a little about them.
As for the ladies, I got the sense they could send and receive letters for free. I often got 3 and 4 line letters from ladies, who had nothing but drivel to say. If I decided to write them back, and asked a few questions, often they would send another short 3 or 4 line letter and not answer all or any of the questions I had asked. Sometimes it goes on like this for days before you get to know them a bit. In the meantime you spent $48 to read and write a total of 4 letters.
I am not sure if the site is a scam, as I did meet a couple of interesting ladies, and corresponded with one for many months before giving up on My Poppet. Never did I meet a lady who knew English well enough to correspond without the use of the translation service at My Poppet. And if you wanted to contact a lady directly, you had to pay $124 to buy that information. Furthermore, the ladies were not permitted to buy your information and contact you directly. Only the men. Go figure? More indication of a scam? Perhaps. In addition, their translators screen all letters, and translate them into the destination language. So, you cannot be sure what actually makes it through to the lady you are communicating with. Any time I made reference to something about the service, there was never any mention of it in the next letter I received.
If you have deep pockets, then give My Poppet a shot. One thing for sure, you will get all kinds of letters from very good looking, and young, ladies. It matters not, what you put in your profile as to the type of lady you are looking for. It's as if they can't read at all, because you will get responses from every age group, every language they may or may not know, smoker, drinker, non, it doesn't seem to matter. They all send you letters. Just train yourself to ignore most of them, and only read the sincere ones you are interested in. Otherwise, call your banker first and take out a second mortgage.
And if you decide to delete your profile? Be ready to be persistent about it. It took me a week and 3 contact letters before they seem to get the message.
