It may not be a SHE, it may be a HE, balls and all and the gist of it is to scam you out of money! READ, READ, READ that's the easy way to learn sending them money and losing it is the hard way...
Novodvinsk, Russia is a known 'dating scams' area!
It is a city with few jobs available, there are many scam groups using photos of young women and write letters to men pretending to be 'a Russian woman seeking for a husband'.
Most 'writers' are male students of the local university, department of foreign languages. They ask women to give them their data and receive for them money transfers, giving women some money for their trouble. The women are not aware of the essence of the correspondence, and never see the letters. Foreign men are requested money for 'visa and tickets' for the 'girl' to come to another country. Money usually is requested via Western Union or Money Gram, first for visa, then for tickets...
