  •  actually, I think you have been treated fairly by (0+ / 0-)

    most of the commenters.  You didn't get the howling mob troll-rating you to oblivion, as can happen.

    You should keep on writing, now, because you are slowly fleshing her out.  I can see her context a bit better, one of those Gulf City-States, educated urbanized girl clashing with traditional family.

    don't always believe what you think...

      Calling a girl who has suffered this a nigerian scam - sorry maybe I am too close - but I would take the reasonable thoughtful route you did and bythesea.  You are skeptical but respectful.

      Yes, that is pretty much correct with your analysis.

      I really doubt her parents or anyone would be looking here or at atheist websites - but she is very scared and wouldn't even let me post a pic with her eyes blacked out on the atheist forums.  In her country, women are reported back to their families if they do anything to rock the boat or go to the authorities.  Whether she just has the duaghter's impression of power or she is accurate, she seems to think her father has connections.

        the girl a scam, we are calling you a scam.

        For the record, you have3n'tgiven me the name of the Swedish advocacy agency you purportedly contacted yet, though I asked for it in an earlier comment.

        Until you do that, yeah, I'm calling you a scam.

          Alec Axelblom Don't worry, I have emailed the Swedish embassy three times to ask for help but they seem to have something wrong with a server as after 3 days I get an automatic response saying blabla wasn't found. I know she doesn't want to go to Sweden but thought I'd email just in case if they can help with asylum to the US/UK.

      I sent $250 to her today via Western Union.  She is supposed to pick this up and pay the visa application fee tomorrow with a bit left over for cabs and getting around.  

      She is supposed to message us a copy of the receipts.  So in the next day or two is when I find out if this is one of the most elaborate scams ever.  The risk has already been taken by one generous man in Australia who donated most of the money.
