Here is the report...
I quickly found out this was a scam when after receiving my first email & did a
search for Kazan & fraises which appeared a number of times in the results, even the
same letters appeared sometimes. I fond the same photos on Stop Scammers site as
Sveltana Polikarpova, Maria Shabalina, & on here as Yulia Khaydarova.
I thought I would carry on emailing to see how long it took to ask for money, which
never did happen. Only answered selective questions & I never managed to get
telephone number or home address after asking for it as I said, "I would like to
send a postcard". She said she lived in a rented apartment & later said lived at
home with her parents when she asked if we could meet in Europe & couldn't ask me to
visit her at home. She said she knew three other languages, as her mother was once a
teacher, one of which was German so I slipped in a phrase or two in German, which I
knew, & she never mentioned anything about it. After the 13th email the scammer
started repeating previous ones, which was when I got feed up emailing & stopped.
