"..America doesn't come into this, the guy is European. ..|
I am not an american yes, people have a hard time reading what i write, the kneejurks on autopilot are funny,

A better question to L4L is why when he is in Europe himself did he not get himself on a plane to there sometime in the last two years?
I wrote clealry we were both in a relationship but were good friends talking about lot of things etc etc, now we are both free.
And this is still no moral excuse to get scammed.

I'm the "kneejerk" who assumed you were American, as you quoted a price in US dollars.

Council first.
  consultation with a lawyer of his country

 Council second
  hire a lawyer in Russia (and it is very expensive and plus aggression against America for Ukrainian policy)

America doesn't come into this, the guy is European.

A lawyer in his own country is equally useless.

If he wants to sue someone in Russia, he hires a Russian lawyer. If he ever got a judgement, he'll never see the money. He will simply have an expensive piece of paper in a language he cant read. As $3k seems a lot to him, he wont pay Russian court fees to prove a point will he?

I doubt a Russian court would be very sympathetic anyway.

He is angry because he knows he did a silly thing. Normal reaction I suppose for some.

A better question to L4L is why when he is in Europe himself did he not get himself on a plane to there sometime in the last two years?

agree. I spoke only of consultation with a lawyer of his country.

New Zealander's would be very offended to have me sent to their "naughty corner"  :biggrin:

The relevance of your origin pertains to your expertise on Shengen visa equirements.., and this pertains in turn to your misunderstanding that the money was about plane tickets. but you can go back and re-read.

L4L, I am very aware young ladies (and others) have to prove they have cash or cc's to support themselves during their travels. The same rules exist in Australia.
I also understand english is probably one of many languages you speak (lucky you) but not your first.
Do not take offense at me pointing out you did not have to send her money for tickets....that part you could have controlled easily.
You messed up man, put your hand up and admit it like I and many others have done who made newbies mistakes.
Learn, and move on. Do not waste your life and money on revenge

Sure that would have been 30% of total amount (clearly stated),.., so your saying it is ok to trust her for 70% but to let her have the other 30% ,.., now that was really stupid and irresponsible.

Oh God!..,  :'(

Agree 100%. Lesson learned and he got off cheap. There are 1000's of person's every year who get scammed in money or marriage who wish they could push a magic button and have L4L problem instead. I am speaking from first hand experience here.
