I agree, this sounds like a catfish. However, he has skyped with her…so it looks like she is being honest about what she looks like.

As for everything else, LIES! There is no way she’s 20 and already making 120k a year. Bitch, please. *rolls eyes*

Google search her picture.  He wouldn’t need to send airfare if she made 120k a year…

Is there any confirmation she even bought a ticket? Did she at least forward the email confirmation? It must be nice to have someone on the other side of the world send you money whenever! She sure seems fishy.

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat:  This is crazy! I dont understand how you get engaged to someone you have never met in person! She definitely sounds like a fake and I don’t blame you for investigating!

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat:  A bachelors degree in any Biology field won’t be making 120k. I have a PhD in Cell Biology and I’m no where near a 6 figure salary. Also, if she is making 120k, she doesn’t need to be sent money for plane tickets.

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat:  Lol yep! I’m 25 and only making 22k a year. But then I live in a more rural area so that’s part of the reason why. But still. If you’re in your early 20’s, your salary would most likely be between 20k to 40k, depending on your profession.

 

@Jill129:  Ooh, good point, I hadn’t even thought of that. But then it’s still early and I’m not fully awake yet haha. Anyway, if she makes that much money, why does she need him to send her money for a plane ticket??

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat:  Oh, something I just thought of. You said you can’t find her name anywhere on social media. But I’m curious, how did your friend meet this girl? What website?
