Worried inThailand

Don't know where to look for help with this. Please email me or reply to this.
I am in SE Asia (Thailand) and one of my wife's friends was approached by a middle eastern guy in a resort town. He told her a company he works for is opening a casino in the Ukraine and they are looking for thai masseuses (she has legit experience) to work there for about 2,100 USD per month.
To me, this does not pass the smell test. In fact, it seems to be downright stereotypical. But, I think this girl is really naive, doesn't know anything about Ukraine or the region and doesn't suspect anything. I made a huge argument against her going (not a good friend of mine, but still, this stuff is sick).
Apparently, they have already made Ukrainian visas for her and some other girls. If she does not listen to my advice and is dead set on going, what can I do to help make sure this is legitimate? I have traveled and work abroad a lot, but I don't know Eastern Europe well at all, not to mention casinos and that sort of thing.
Any suggestions? Sorry, maybe I am overplaying this, but it seems weird that they would pay so much to take her to Ukraine of all places....
Any help greatly appreciated.
