My brother is engaged to a lady from Kiev. She is stating that when her father left the family, they lost the house. She states her father sued her and received a $10k settlement. She has no paperwork regarding this and states it is against the law to provide paperwork until she pays the money. She has a work visa dated 8/25 and states she is not allowed to come until she pays the $10k. She is requesting the money from my brother. I have requested any paperwork available regarding the court case/info from embassy stating she can't travel until she pays this money.
Is this truly illegal to provide until she makes the payment? I am skeptical and will not loan the money until I have answers. Thank you!
