    This is a scam. Cut all contact with this person. They are scamming you. Commented Apr 26, 2020 at 18:35

No, it's almost assuredly a scam. The transfers she makes to you will eventually get reversed but the transfers you make to her are permanent. So you'll be left on the hook to make up the difference to your bank.

It also doesn't make sense. It's far easier for her to simply open her own account at her own bank in her own country and manage her own finances rather than to have everything routed through a different person at a different bank in a different country.
