I think it is safer to just assume it is fake if you are being asked for money, you do not know this person and they are most likely scamming you.
Not only is what you are trying to do dangerous for your money, but more importantly it is dangerous for the couple. You are giving a complete stranger these people's names, DOB and where they live? Do you not realise how dangerous that is?
Also, you shouldn't really use magic for selfish reasons.
