If he was asking about a real girlfriend, the replies would have been very different. But it's obvious that he hasn't seen her for a long time, he barely knows her, yet thinks she's a "girlfriend".
If he's dumb enough to send several "gifts" a year to someone like that, then he can't really expect better responses.
Reading stuff like this, it's no wonder that so many people still fall for Nigerian scams:
Are all Polaks as greedy and rude as these people? Because this friend wants to come to America, and I am starting to think that, if she is like the ones who answered my question, I don't want her here. In fact she works at a bank and wants to be a financial consultant, and now I notice that in all her emails, she seems to talk about that, and money, a lot.
