Everything with my lady friend blew up in my face this morning. She had told me she wanted to come here. She told me that she had been to see a travel agent about plane fare, and a visa. A visa from a travel agent! I got a little curious. So, I sent an email to the U.S. Consular's office in South Africa. They said a travel agent cannot issue a valid visa. Also, she insisted on a "round-trip" air fare. I sent her an email late last night with what I had learned so far. She came back at me in a message this morning accusing me of being childish, and making a mess of everything. She made me out to be the devil himself. So, I basically told her to go frak off, and that I was cutting off her access to me by email. I haven't yet. I want to see if she sends anything back. It really don't matter because I'm done with her anyway. I will not help anyone do anything that lands me in a federal prison. No woman is worth that. There are just too many others out there somewhere just begging for a chance at what she screwed up...

She wants a visa? ...AND round trip air fare from South Africa? I think she's trying to pull a con job on you! Beware of people that ask you to send them money.

P.S. Sorry about your bad experience with this woman. I wish you the best in your search

Stats show the number one income for Nigeria Africa is internet scam... even some of the government officials are involved. You did the right thing. Good luck.

Being South African myself, I DO get upset when people (WOMAN in particular) abuse people from other countries. If anyone reads my profile, they would notice that I have met, the man of my dreams on AMD and he is American.

A kind word of advice. ONLY the USA Embassy in Johannesburg or Cape Town South Africa, can issue a visa and at the moment, the waiting period for that is about 3-4 weeks, as appointments with the Embassy can only be made ONLINE. A travel agent CAN NOT issue a visa for ANY country, so if you are told this, be very aware. Also, no travel agent would issue a ticket without a USA visa in your passport.

It really goes beyond me why people have to fabricate such lies? What do they think they will gain from it and do they HONESTLY believe they will never be caught? Life is so short and so precious, why lie about vital issues?

As for myself, *I* paid my own air ticket, visa AND hotel accommodation in Chicago, when Romantic_Fool & I decided to meet in 2004. I never asked him for ANYTHING, except his time to meet me. He is now visiting me on HIS own account this Christmas.

I really feel ashamed of my fellow South Africans, especially when they abuse a kind heart like yours. Please forget about this woman, as I think she is a scam, otherwise she would not have asked anything from you... Seriously, if she wants to meet you, the trip should either be split in 2 (IF agreed by both of you) or she has to pay her own way there.

Good luck and I truly hope you find happiness like I did and remember, not everyone from a particular country is bad.....

I'm sorry to hear that your lady (and I use that term loosely) wasn't all she said she was. B_A_B is right not everyone from another country is bad. I think it's terrible that there are people in this world that seem to take pleasure in trying to take advantage of others. Don't give up! There is a special someone out there for you!
