    It is most likely a SCAM. Online romance?

    No there is no such thing, This is all part of a scam where they ask for money for passports, money for visa (often at 10 times the normal cost) and then ask for this travel allowance. It will go on and on from there.

    Want to tell us the story,

    Nope, no such thing. This is a common scam. Nigeria is known for this crap.

    You're most likely talking to a guy, one of many in a warehouse whose job it is to romance people online and get as much money as possible from them, before they give up.

    Just tell this person that you live in a double wide, have no money, can't send any money to help, and watch how quickly they move on, after trying a few more times to get you to come up with the cash. Keep saying no and you'll never hear from them again.

    If you're looking for love, much better to leave the house and meet real people than to go online. So many scams online. Rule one, if they ask for money, leave.

    That is the biggest Nigerian SCAM there is, There is no such thing. Do not give money to anyone. If they keep pestering you, go to the American embassy and talk to them. Do NOT talk to those people. All you need is your ticket and to go get on the plane. The BTA they tell you you must pay is a total SCAM.

    This one above caught a few people out over here. Today less and less people are being scammed , though it still does happen.

    There is no fee to open a new bank account , just like you don't need a travel allowance to leave Nigeria.

    They have gotten better at trying to scam , noting some of the really old ones use to have spelling mistakes in them which totally gave them away. The elderly are still their prey as they trust the most , though they try for anyone.
