I can feel your feeling my friend. I am not sure how to advice on that.
I just want to share with you something. I have just lost USD$1300 for flight ticket and pocket money for my girlfriend in Ukraine. She supposed to be arriving in my country on 1.30pm 3rd February, 2003.
We have been corresponding since early August last year. I called her almost every night since then. I trust her. Lastly, I asked her to get a support letter from her government. The marriage department in my country required us to have the support letter to ensure that I do not force her for marriage or she does not run away from her parents. To my suprise, the total cost was USD$190 (about at leat 5 letters). I do not understand with this. I don't have to pay for this amount in my country. In some cases, I can obtain it for free of charge. I truly have a doubt with her sincerity after that. But it was too late. She already got everything.
So,I knew and kept in touch with her more than 5 months. I still got what others already experienced before.
I think you need to find a good agency. Better leave her. Find the reliable one. You might feel the pain because of this but it is so little if compare after you have spent more in the future. You will get a great blow. You are not only lose her but thousands of dollars plus your family pressed you with maximum load to get the money back. I am facing this now. I already told her that the money is hers. I am not going to take it back.
Next time, I won't send money. Let's talk about money after we meet in person. That's all. If you love me, you have to pay for that too and not on one side only. I will work on this approach from now on.
