Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.

Before I answer your question, I have to ask:

1) HOW did you meet your fiance? Online?

2) Have you ever met him in person?

3) Has he asked for money?

We need to rule out that this is a scam, first.
