This is a scam and you should never send money for it!
Typically, a man comes into contact with a scammer through an online dating agency.
The scammer will have photos showing a young and attractive woman though her profile may say she’s from America or England.
Such operations have been known to hire young Russian women to act as the voice on the other end of that romantic phone call.
After taking the time to get to know you, she says she's coming to visit you or wants to move to your country.
Russian dating sites are very popular and while many men have met genuine, loving Russian women, unfortunately sometimes one encounters scammers as well.
