She is hard to detect because she pretends very well to be genuine.
Her story:

She "needs money" for

* A passport
* Her sick mom
* General financial help because she is "poor" or "sick".

She is very emotional and has a good English.
At the end she just disappears.

I initiated the contact through OKCupid and she almost immediately asked me for my email.
She refused to give me her phone number;
She told she does not have a cell phone to take current photos of herself - only old photos.
She said she has many "troubles" and needs money.
She asked 350 USD for a passport which really costs 50 USD.

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.
