Also, make it clear that you will never send any money to anyone you meet online.
If the person is genuine they should be very happy that you will travel to meet them, if they are a scammer and sense that they will never receive any money you will probably find that they disappear as soon as they realize they will never receive any financial benefit from communicating with you.
Several weeks later the victim looks at their credit card statement and sees billing for adult chat services.
In this scam the scammer asks you to send money for fees for college, university or other educational activities.
We strongly recommend never sending any money to anyone that you meet online, don't even send money to buy a postage stamp…not a cent…zilch, nada.
