Customer service 
The site can be contacted by email by logging on the site; however no tel number is listed on the site.. One can use the Anastasia web numbers which is 1 (207) 262 01 99.

The site has some negative feedbacks.  A small number do feel that the Anastasia web is itself a scam, but generally that is not the view of the majority of members. However the general opinion is that the site is very expensive.

 Live chatting and sending letters is expensive and just reading a letter cost you $8. In addition meeting the women in real life means travelling to China or Japan and that will add to your expenses.
