Hi MerryWidow, welcome to the site and Happy New Year to you.
Something you can be certain of, when you receive the documents you are waiting for, they will be 100% fake, they never send anything real that can be traced back to them.
The scammer saying he wants you to pay his hotel bill is common practice in romance scams, they use that one all the time, as well as the old, my mother/brother/sister/aunt etc is in hospital, and the doctors are demanding payment, please send $$$, or I need to pay my rent, send $$$, and as mentioned, the old favourite, I need to pay my hotel bill, send $$$, along with any number of other excuses why they need money.
Why don't you join our sister site at 419eater.com where we have numerous examples of fake passport and ID scans that have been sent by scammers, our forum is here:
Once you register, go to the pictures & video
sub forum, then click the link near the top of the page titled as, Paste your passports, RSOT's and starter kit stuff here
We also have some fake passports and ID's on this forum, see this section:
One thing about fake passports, in nearly all cases, the tampering is very obvious, you might see where they have used something like Photoshop to erase an old name, and used a different font when they typed a new name in, or dates of birth no matching their age, passport number differing form the passport number at the bottom of the passport etc etc, whatever the case, it will be pretty obvious, the only time it is not so obvious, is when they use real passports that have been stolen, where they then assume the name on the passport and use it in their scam, but even then they might make a change like changing the photo.
You can of course post the passports scan here for us to view, or if you would rather keep it a bit more private, feel free to forward the email containing the passport scan to me, and I will let you know the outcome, click the PM buttom below my post to send me a private message, I will reply with my email address to forward the email to.
