Unfortunately there is no guarantee. There is no way to know what her motive is until you arrive in the U.S.A. If you do not feel comfortable about the situation, it would be prudent for you to decline the invitation for your own safety.

I am sorry that I do not have better news for you.

Kindly give a positive rating to my response so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for doing this.

Thank you for your cooperation.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
