Am I possibly going to get scammed?

Hi everyone. Great to see a forum here on the web like this.
Here is a rather strange suggestion from a Russian lady that I am in correspondance with.

We have exchanged lots of natural photo's, spoke on the phone time and time again (she speaks excellent English) and we "seem" very good for eachother. So I have decided to go to St Petersburg for a few days to meet her.

However, she insisted that she sends me the Visa invite documents, which she prepared herself (she works in a travel agency) She has booked me an apartment for my 4 day stay, but yet she says to put on the Visa for that I am staying in a 4 star hotel that I have already payed for! Why not tell the truth?

Here is what she has put in a recent mail.

> In the documents it is written that you are supposed to stay from the 25th till the 29th of August in a single room with breakfast in the 4 star hotel Neptun" by name and its address is:
>
> naberejnaya Obvodnogo canala, 93a
> St-Petersburg, 191119
> Russia
>
> Also it is written in the documents that you have already paid for the hotel.
>

she then said that after my arrival, we need to register at the hotel and pay 20 dollars registration at the hotel that I won't even stay at.
What does everyone think? Do you think that I could get scammed here for hotel money that I don't owe?

Many thanks everyone.

Mark. :)

No worry

Hi Mark,

This is normal we do it for our clients all the time at A Foreign Affair that stay in apartments.

Thanks Ken but why is this?

Thanks Ken, but why is this so? Do apartments cause problems with Visa's? :)

Hotels register their clients automatically, while private places don't. It is strange, though, that she "insisted"... I hope you are her only "client" and that she is not just "pushing" the services of the agency she is working for...
