Have you heard of a national or local government organisation called BTI

My girlfriend is having problems, she says, with selling her apartment. When a buyer came along the property was inspected and was said to have been altered and was dangerous. Further the BTI got involved and said that the apartment had to be returned to original spec before sale and a fine would have to be paid if this was not done in a timely manner.

Bob's Answer:

I Googled "bti housing ukraine" (you didn't specify Ukraine or Russia) and see references to a "Bureau of Technical Inventory" involved with housing and real estate. Click the link to see results.

But I'm sure five seconds on Google would have told you the same thing, so I assume you really meant to ask if her story is suspicious.

To THAT question I probably have a more helpful answer: As soon as I hear that a Russian/Ukrainian girl is having some kind of high-cost/high-drama/high-urgency situation my red lights start flashing.

If this "girlfriend" isn't someone you've at least met in person and with whom you've spent some significant in-person time with absolutely no cause for concern, then all my chips are on this being a scam.

Hi, I know that in Russia a lot of such companies and people working at such companies make up things often. They do so to get into people's pocket.

If I we're you I'd want to either;

1. Be supportive in every way except paying out any monies. I don't know what country either. The people telling her there is danger could be scamming her?

2. Or I'd wish to take the husbandly position and speak with them about resolving the danger, and the fine, including it's date to be paid by.

I could elaborate on (Husbandly position) but; I don't know enough. Especially how close you are to your GF. But if you offer to speak to these people and she gives a reason you should not do so: I would definitely ask myself silently: Why Not? RED FLAG TIME. Hope this helps.
