Thank you for using Just Answer. I am a licensed attorney and look forward to helping you.I would agree that many of the things you stated are the kinds of things that a scammer in a romance scam says. And unfortunately, because these criminals use fake names (often backed up by fake pictures lifted off the internet/social media) looking them up by name isn't effective.Was there something specific you wanted answered? Are you wanting an opinion as to whether this is a romance scam? Wanting to know if you can recover the money?
