Of course it's a scam.

She wants to come to YOU???.If she were genuine she'd expect YOU to visit her.

She wants your money knowing once you send her money for a tourist visa (which she'll never get)she'll vanish without trace.

Delete her emails and forget it.

Why would any real, decent woman throw herself at the mercy of a complete stranger met only days earlier on the net, who might be a psychopath on parole?

Why would a man send money to a complete stranger met only days earlier on the net, who might be a man ( which proof do you have it's really a woman? Old Boris might even hire a girlfriend to talk to you for three dollars... ), a married woman with three kids, etc?

While there are thousands of ongoing visa-travel scams, i never heard of a man who saw his FSU fox pizza-delivered to his door.
Don't be cheap, hop on a plane instead.
You may want to ace it, but you'll only loose money...like a man who wasted UK?20.000.

Hi Sas884, Please do NOT send money to her.

Test her first. Ask her to inquire her local embassy about whether she can get the tourist visa. If she reply to you "Yes, she can get the tourist visa". But you get the answer of "no" from your country's visa issuing authoruty. Then you can 100% ensure she is scammer!

Excuse me. Can you teach me how to do a search for "the IP-adress" the Russian woman uses ???

In my case, the Russian woman only corresponded with me "by email". I want to know "the IP-adress" the Russian woman uses. Please teach me how to do it!!!. Thank you.
