I am in a quandary this person whom i met online has a visa

Customer Question

I am in a quandary this person whom i met online has a visa to travel to Australia she says she needs AU$5000 to show to her Embassy before she can travel to this country as she needs assets before she is allowed to fly to Australia.Is this plausible?
On the phone she cries and begs says she is not 'a player' does it sound suspicious the whole scenario?
Resigned from her job as a Registered Nurse,now she is in Manila frightened? She has been to her Embassy she says she has a Visa but has to show financial assests if they know I am the one helping her she won't be able to leave the country.She states she will bring the AU$5000 back to me.What do you reckon?I am concerned I will not see the money again
