I am glad you posted your question on this site. The reason I am is that I am very familiar with this issue as I answer questions like this many times a month, sometime more than once a week.This is a very well known scam. Without being told I know you met this friend online and have never met this person in person. You are must more fortunate than most victims of this type of scam because you decided to ask about it before it is too late. Your friend does not really exist. It is a group of people trying to scam money out of innocent, caring people. If you pay any money it is gone and you won't find these scammers or the money. I hope that helps.
