Unsolicted EMail and wants to pay for half the airfare?
(Seattle, WSH, USA)
Over 2 months I have communicated romantically with this fine lady from St Petersburg, Russia, who first approached me by email. I don't know how she got my email address. After only 2 months, probably 30 lengthy and very intense emails and lengthy WhatsApp conversations, she wants less messaging but personal contact now.
I want the same as we are both in love. She says she is strongly in love with me and cannot wait to see me any longer. She wants to meet me at my home in the USA before me going to meet her in Russia. She refuses my offer to see her first in Russia.
She has agreed to pay for half the airfare including cost of tourist visa and passport processing. She wants me to send me the money directly to her bank account or PayPal, for which she has given me all the transfer details. Is this too good to be true and should I find a polite way to refuse to send the money to her bank account? Suspiciously a scam.
