I met this guy through a dating app, and then he came to my country to visit me for a week.
We did meet and had a good time (no sex). And I agreed to be his girlfriend later.
Then he went back to his country but now he’s trying to come and start working here to end the LDR situation.
The problem is, he said he’s out of money due to previous flights and travels so he needs my financial help.
When we were together, he seemed really sincere. (By the way, he paid for all when he came visit me last time including his own flights and accommodation etc.) But concerning money, I am more careful and thus I am wondering if he is a scam or anything alike?
What would you do in this situation?
I know LDRs seldom work out but I still hold out some hope on him being really genuine.
Any advice or suggestion is appreciated!

Anytime someone asks for money early in a relationship that should spark red flags. If not a scam, sounds like he would need more help and you might feel obligated to do a lot more (money, sex, move in) if he moved and 'couldn't find work'. You would think it's your fault. You asked the question so your internal alarm went off! Trust yourself!2

I'd cut all contact with anyone who requested money from me. It's naive to assume he's genuine. Genuine people would never ask for your help like that. He's probably manipulated you by paying for certain things , knowing he'll con you for more than he's paid out. I'd rather assume he's insincere than risk being scammed.1
