Thank you for using Just Answer. Good to hear from you again.It's part of the scam. Pursuant to Department of Treasury Regulations, a customs tax would have to be paid for anyone sending over $10,000 in gold/coins/currency, as well as anyone receiving this currency. It's called a FinCEN 105 form.More information here. And here's the form.We get these types of romance scams on this site at least 2-3 times a week, usually more. I understand there is a relationship built up and you want to trust this person, and I can't tell you not to. I can only tell you that if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, well...you know the rest. The scammer isn't going to pay that customs tax for importing the gold. And I hope you're prepared to pay the hefty tax for receiving it, or facing the penalties if you don't.Please remember to kindly leave a positive rating for me by clicking on the stars, as that is the only way experts are paid for their time even though you may have already paid a deposit to the site.
