They are people dying to cash in on men's feelings. Well, the truth is he really does NOT want to meet someone like that. How would you react to that kind of heart-rending letter?
Further, I recommend that you walk away and do not contact her again.
A normal good girl you want to spend time with will not ask for money. Even now that we are married she still does not like it. My wife for example has no desire to live in the USA, unless I really wanted to, unless I dragged her there.
At some point she tells you you are the love of her life, and she is dying to meet you in person. So, could you please send her some cash to help her pay for the tickets/visa/passport? Because he feels like he has known this woman forever when in fact he has not.
She will never try to arouse your sympathy with a view to get some money from you. They are sincerely looking for someone they can spend the rest of their lives with.
I know many that had full visas in the US and moved back to their beloved Russia or had chances to go and did not. The good girls I know would prefer to picnic in a local forest and not have a guy pay for some fancy vacation or sponsor her for a trip somewhere rather than to ask for money.
If a lady you have been corresponding with and asks for money for any reason, it is a scam. No normal girl wants you to sponsor her, get a green card or passport or visa, or ask for money or help in anyway. Get a discount flight and book a cheap apartment and go there. No need to be overly cautious, just be aware and connect the dots.If any Russian girl, or any girl ask you for money, for visa or airline tickets or for any reason she is a scammer. Even if the world is poor they will not ask for money unless they are a scammer. I know scores of girls from Russia, Ukraine, Poland, China etc, however, not one normal girl would ever ask your for money, even if it was about a visa or a chance to see you. In fact, when my wife was my girlfriend and I offered to pay for anything like a trip, she did not like that at all, even if we had been dating for several years, and she would for sure not take money from me. I know this will hurt your feelings to hear this but you have to be strong and yield to the logic of the situation. Much of the world is poor and 1000 dollars is a lot of money for someone, even 100 dollars is a good amount of money, so if they can get a few hundred dollars from a few guys, this is better than working in a shop all day, this is the mentality of a scammer. No self respecting girl in Europe or Asia would ask for money. Maybe an American or UK women would do this, but not a Polish girl for example, at least not one I would ever date.You are eager to find things you have despaired of finding in your own country. The 50 dollars she needs would not hurt your budget, would it? My mom's dying of cancer (stomach ulcer/brain tumor - you name it! A girl might ask a man to pay a non-existent monthly fee of at her agency.You seek beauty, love, understanding, and appreciation. You might or might not be taken aback by that request. Just as everywhere else this mysterious world of foreign brides is full of its own dangers. She might tell you she needs money to pay an interpreter to translate her letters to you. She will NEVER accept any money from you until you have actually met, and your relationship has turned into something real. A scammer will of course claim she does not care about money, but we all know actions speak louder than words.It's easy to fall for such trick even if you are an absolutely rational guy, especially if she produces some documents, like a passport with a US visa.
