The story that you present is the classic romance scam. These scams are frequently organized by professionals. You may not even be communicating with a woman, but someone posing as the "love of your life".

These scams can involve hundreds or even thousands of victims. Your "lady friend" might be communicating with dozens or hundreds of men at the same time, giving each exactly what they want to hear, and asking for money using the same or different excuses from each victim.

The US Department of State and other government agencies have issued warning about these all too common scams:

This individual is setting the bait, and you are the fish about to take the bait and the hook. Sending any money will likely result in requests for even more money (it will get "lost", "stolen", there will be some "medical emergency", "family emergency" etc) OR you may end up getting your identity stolen - with your bank account being emptied out, your credit ruined and your life savings drained.
