Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

Expert:  Debra replied 8 months ago.

I am very sorry to hear that you have found yourself in this difficult situation. You are very wise to ask if this person is real.

No. He is not real. This is a well-known scam called a romance scam.

This group of scammers are professional and are very good at tricking victims like yourself. Fortunately you were prudent enough to ask and I hope you have not provided this scammer with any money because you will never find the scammer nor will you ever get back the money.

Does that answer your question?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
