Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am Loren, a licensed attorney for over 30 yrs and former prosecutor, and I look forward to assisting you.

There is no malaria in Albany NY. It is not a disease found in that type of climate. The mosquitoes that carry malaria do not exist that far north.

This person is a fraud and attempting to steal your money.

Do not continue speaking to her or otherwise corresponding. You do not owe them an explanation.

If you have no further questions, and have not yet done so, please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for assisting you.

There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.

A bonus is not expected, but is always appreciated.

Thank you!

Loren
