In my first posting I was searching for people, who can help me to improve my English. After I had found someone I wrote a small letter about me. In her 2nd letter she wrote something about her parents and her bad life... The end of this story is - she wants me to transfer money to Germany and I should help her!

Thema = topic => an area of interest, also called a subject, the focus of an article in a publication,
a topic sentence,
a sentence in a paragraph that indicates what the paragraph in general is about, usually the first sentence

I got no experience with similar requests, but you shouldn't pay anything to her.

Actually, in general, we say 'post' and not 'posting'.

z.B. "In my first post, I was searching for..."

You unfortunately get these kinds of requests anywhere on the web. Ignore them, it is a way to get money of naive (sorry) people. If someone is in trouble, they can find another way to get out of it.

You'd be surprised how many requests I receive asking either for money for their sick siblings, mothers, fathers, friends, daughters, sons, grandmother and dogs, for scientific researches and even for getting someone out of jail.

Honestly, you're better off ignoring such things. It is all fake, relying on the sympathy of good-hearted people.
