Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
What is your involvement with them precisely?
Thank you. It does indeed appear to be a scam. I have seen many examples of fake travel agencies being created just fr the purpose of a romance scam to make it look authentic that the person you are corresponding with is making genuine attempts for travel.
They say they have been in business for over 50 years but the website was only created in February this year. Of course I would not have expected it to have been in existence for 50 years but at least a number of years. Also the website’s owner has hidden their details from public view which would be unusual if they were genuine.
The agents they have provided photos of are fake as they can be found on the internet on other sites.
Sadly China does not have a public site where you can check registered companies (at least not in English) so I cannot verify the authenticity of the agents in that way. Instead you have to look at all other factors and identify common red flags which show this is most likely a scam. From my experience in fraud examining, the examples I have seen in the past and the evidence here, I am almost certain they are indeed a scam.
