That seems a bit far-fetched.

You don't have to be rich to get a K1.

I have payed

1,400 for my flight out there the first time.

250 for the engagement ring (bought from a pawn shop because she told me if I bought her an expensive ring she'd kill me)

315 I-129F application fee (unless it's changed or whatever)

To finish it I'll need

~ 500 for the Embassy interview/ medical exam

~ 2500 for the flight to go get her and bring her back.

That's just me and your mileage may vary.

Probably about $20,000.
