This person had a profile on Tinder saying she was in Manchester, UK - but as soon as we started to communicate on Tinder she asked for us to move to email, and as soon as we started to exchange emails she deleted her profile on Tinder. She seemed sincere, but then I noticed she was not replying to my emails, but started to write about how she had strong feelings for me after only a few messages and then said she wanted to visit me in UK, said she was happy to share a bed with me etc - and then asked for money for her flight. As soon as I said I was happy to pay for her flight, but I would pay the fare direct to the airline and not to her, she stopped communicating with me.
The U.S. Embassy receives reports almost every day of fraud committed against U.S. citizens by Internet correspondents professing love and romantic interest. Typically, the Russian correspondent asks the U.S. citizen to send money or credit card information for living expenses, travel expenses, or "visa costs." The anonymity of the Internet means that the U.S. citizen cannot be sure of the real name, age, marital status, nationality, or even gender of the correspondent. The U.S. Embassy has received many reports of citizens losing thousands of dollars through such scams. American citizens are advised never to send money to anyone they have not met in person.
Actually name is Anastasiia
