  • This is a scam, without any doubt. Stop any contact with her (or him)
    Visit for destination advice
  • Of course it's a scam. Stop being a sucker.

    There is no such thing as PTA ,personal travel allowance also called BTA ,Basic Travel Allowance , these are made up by scammers to defraud fools like you from their money. Just Google PTA and you can see its a scam.
