I have a Lady...

I have a Lady Friend who lives in Russia and to get a Russian Visa she has to prove $5500.00 US to come for a visit to Australia. I have already paid for her ticket and now she need $ 5500.00 Us to leave the Russian Federation.

Lawyer's Assistant: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?

I have met her on the internet and trying to meet her in Melbourne

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I have supported her in obtaining her Visa and plain ticket

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

She is insisting for me to send the money only to proof solvency to the Russian Federation before she gets her Visa

I recommend that you do not pay any further funds. To obtain a visa in Russia to Australia only costs a few hundred dollars not $5,500.

I advise this may be scam in place.

Have you done any face to face communication with this person ?
