Would you marry someone who wants just to get out their (poor) country ???Page 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
He ain't that poor. He has computer access. And enough intelligence to try to scam you. People made it to this country hundreds of years ago. Came with no money in their pockets to start a new life.

Marriage is out of LOVE. Let him hook up with someone else. Do YOURSELF a favor, hit DELETE.

I would consider helping out a close friend who was already here and working etc. to stay. The situation almost came up once. But I wouldn't just help anyone I corresponded with online.

if he's educated, has computer access, then he should be smart enough to save money and move out. but I"m sure he's smart for a con artist, that there's potentially somewhere out there that will feel sorry and marry him. But you can reverse it, by having him pay the ticket for you and enjoy a nice trip on him lol.

If you marry someone to get them a green card and you get caught you open yourself up for a lot of trouble. You have committed a crime so you are a criminal. Even if you do not go to jail you will still have to put out money for a lawyer. Nothing on your computer ever gets erased. There are plenty of things you can do to help people that do not include you ending up with a possible police record.

I'm living poof that marring a poor person can and can't work, my marriage to a poor Dominican lasted 14 years, the first three where hard we moved back to the U.S.A. then she changed, the last 6 years where the worst, she stepped out of the marriage, the only great thing that we produced were the lovely and talented daughters
The question still stands is it worth it my answer is YES, but don't give them the visa to the U.S. keep them in there own country were they'll never forget how the lived and suffered.
SORRY that my feeling's

Take Care

1. Its illegal and you cna go to jail if you get cuaght with marrying someone to grant them citizenship status. a lot of people want to be Americans as much as they complain about this country.

2. Thsi si for his own personal financial gain. He does not care about you.

3. If you do him this favor he may rob you, identity theft, he may steal your credit cards and max them out. he'll do what he has to to get by.

4. Why even consider this?

I would not be willing to sponsor someone from a poorer country to immigrate to mine in a romantic way. It's like living a lie, I'd never know if she was with me because she truly appreciated me, or just for the quality of life and economic improvements.

It would require a lot of convincing from an eastern European girl for me to begin a romantic relationship with her, and bring her all the way here.

That is a typical scam. I thought they had given up on that because women were not bitting. However, it doesn't cost much to send out 50 millions emails in the hopes that a few desperate foolish women will bite.

Go ahead and prove it to yourself. Email it a few times and receive more nice photos and then it will ask if you can send it money to help pay for the trip over. Then when you send money, it will need more until it bleeds you dry.

Then it will disappear. However, you money will not be a total loss, you will have paid for and gained a much needed education.

Not in a million years! I won't be used by anyone for anything like that, ever. Let them find their own way out of their mess.

Do it for money.... Tell him to pay you $10,000 a year for the 4 years it takes to get a green card.
You make $40,000 and if it's true love he'll stick around and if not, at least he paid his way......
(I'm joking here, but you could always try the scam in reverse) lol

No, can't say that I would. Since the person is from a poor country, it's highly unlikely they would have the money to meet my price. There's a lot of legal and financial hassles to get someone out of their country (through marriage) and I would expect to be well compensated for such a deal.
