    My friend, it is so sad to hear that you sent money for a lady you have never met. A modest and honest Slavic woman will not ask for money from a stranger. As to the question of whether she has truly applied for a visa, or whether an Australian company has sponsored one on her behalf, your own Dept of Immigration will have this information.

    As to her story of coming to your country soon, she may be telling the truth (but that does not excuse you for sending money...nor her for asking for it). Your Australian government is now recruiting citizens from the FSU to work and live in Australia under skilled work visa programs. She can obtain such a visa quite easily.

    It is a mistake to think that Australia has similar immigration policies such as for a FSU person to travel to America.

    The government of Australia has two worker visa types for Eastern Europeans; a 12 month visa in which the person must promise to leave after working 12 months, and a longer 4 year visa in which the person may apply for citizenship provided they meet certain requirements.

    In certain key skills (such as medicine) this recruitment waives the normal requirement of self support and medical insurance if the Russian/Ukrainian person will fill certain key skilled jobs in which Australians have a severe shortage. That also includes meat packing, construction, science and math teachers and a number of other categories.

    Your Australian government national radio/TV, which has broadcast channels in many languages, produced a special Ukrainian language broadcast aimed at recruiting workers from Ukraine as just one example. Here is a link to the Australian SBS and you can listen to the broadcast. Follow this link and scroll about 40% down the page to find that particular broadcast. http://tinyurl.com/2t9a55

    Because of the acute crisis in key sectors, the Australian government is waiving the ?points? system for in key areas, such as the medical field where your country faces severe nursing and doctor shortages. http://www.workpermit.com/australia/medical

    She may also be telling the truth about a new passport. If she is from Russia and has not renewed her foreign passport to the newer formatted passports, then it is quite reasonable for her to say that she is getting a new passport. Russia has been in the process of making passport changes in recent years. Russia has two passports: Internal for travel within the Russian Federation and a separate Foreign passport, issued only when approved for travel abroad so her claim to have a new passport could be true.

    To sort is all out, as other guys have pointed out...why does she need you to purchase her a ticket? (Your government is even paying travel expenses in key sectors!) Why do you feel like it is your responsibility to buy a ticket for someone you've never met?

    You are the man so be a leader. If you want to meet a lady, then get on a plane and go visit her. Nothing, absolutely nothing can replace the value in going and observing a RW in her community, meeting her family and friends, and seeing a lady in her natural environment. Nothing can replace this experience. Only bad decisions result from meeting in your country or in a third neutral location.

    Somehow I strongly doubt that.

    Aries, please file a complaint. It is realy important that you follow up with that. Cal WU asap, find out where the money was received, and do it. Without the complaint, they (since it is probably "they," not "she") will keep enjoying the good life. After police come knocking on their door, they have to get rid of computers, move from their office, sell their cars, etc. It is totally worth the effort to inconvenience them that much. Please file a complaint.

    Question:


    Who do you file a complaint with that will do anything?

    The agencies or scammers are not governed by U.S. laws, and most international laws also do not apply to the FSU



    Just curious?

    Answer:
    you find out what city the money were received in by contacting WU or MoneyGram. Then you contact the central office of the Ministry of the Internal Affairs in that region and file a complaint with them. They can submit a request to the local WU branches to dig up the paperwork for that transaction. The info from the receiver's ID should be recorded in the paperwork. From there they can start working on the case.

    The fact that you needed to ask whether she is a scammer scares me.
