I initiated contact with this person on Russian Personals at the beginning of July. At first, the correspondence seemed normal. She sent me pictures of herself in every letter. After about 6-7 exchanges, she would tell me how she had to go and visit her sick granny, but never asked for anything. After a few more exchanges, she would seem to repeat questions that I had already answered, and would not answer my questions. Her letters became more like monologues rather than exchanges.
She suggested we meet up on Skype, and I agreed. She sent me her Skype handle, which I added, and she added me back almost immediately, as well as giving me a cell number. It turned out, however, that when I called the number, it just gave some recording and nobody ever answered. She said that she was "having problems with her phone" but would get it checked out. She never did.
When I asked why she couldn´t meet up on Skype, she said that she had limited access to internet, although she wrote me regularly. Then, she said that she didn´t want to meet on Skype, nor talk on the phone, but preferred a face to face meeting. She then sent me emails about how she was so obsessed with me, that she would wander the streets at night, just thinking about me. She sent me a couple of emails talking about only that, disregarding my prior communication.
She asked me how we would meet ( a question I had already answered) I told her that I would go and see her, but that i would need to talk to her on the phone, and/or have a video call. That was the last I ever heard from her. She didn´t ask me for money, but she was clearly setting me up for it with her nonsense. After about 2 weeks, I sent her an e mail that just said "I knew you were a fraud." , and of course, no answer.
This person is completely fraudulent. I should mention that a few days after I started my communication with her, her profile was deleted.

The U.S. Embassy receives reports almost every day of fraud committed against U.S. citizens by Internet correspondents professing love and romantic interest. Typically, the Russian correspondent asks the U.S. citizen to send money or credit card information for living expenses, travel expenses, or "visa costs." The anonymity of the Internet means that the U.S. citizen cannot be sure of the real name, age, marital status, nationality, or even gender of the correspondent. The U.S. Embassy has received many reports of citizens losing thousands of dollars through such scams. American citizens are advised never to send money to anyone they have not met in person.
