She will tell that she has found out everything she needs to do to receive a tourist (work, student) visa.

The duration of the phase depends on the scammer's own work style.
Sometimes at the same time many scammers would announce that their yearly vacation time (usually 2 weeks) is coming up.

As a results of using the sets of pre-written letters, scammers tend to ignore questions posted to them, or when they do answer questions, they answer them only at the very beginning or at the very end of each letter.
The longer the set up phase, the higher is the scammer's probability of success in obtaining the money.
