Sometimes the scenario is different: women do not ask for money for tickets or visa, allegedly they are coming to you at their own expense, but they are bringing some rare, old or expensive thing as a gift with them, customs stops them and wants money for it. Nobody would bring some very rare or expensive present for a first meeting.
