Do not send this person ANY money. This certainly sounds like a classic scam, and unless if you want to go into researching it to the core, I would drop this place and move on. Don't waste your time and money. It's always important to feel 100% comfortable with your transactions. If your instincts tell you that something is fishy, (particularly when they are asking you to wire money) it probably is. I wish you the best of luck with your search!
