So after a bit of general poking around, it seems that all Pay Per Letter sites are not trustworthy. I saw a reference to Daisy Bride (or something like that) on here and that one appears to be legit from the surface.
To me, it seems that many women would go to a local agency to submit their information and look at their options, and perhaps the best way to meet some of the real folks is to look into these marriage agencies.
I'm having trouble figuring out how this could go wrong if there is no PPL involvement and you pay a fee for the lady's contact information.
Thus far, for the "National Brands" the only ones that seem legit are the following:

Loveme.com -- I'm not sure how this works with obtaining contact information without going on the tour.
