I received an email from an unknown girl well it was in my junk mail and i have been talking to her for 3 + weeks, she has not asked for money, but she is slightly reluctant to give me a phone number.she has given me a mailing address, her first and last name, she has given me photo of her family mom and dad, plus herself, and a photo of her friend.she says she works in a female shoe store.she says that she is emotionally attracted to me after the 5th day straight of 1 email per day, and she wants to leave Kazan, Russia.What brought up questioning her actions is she was leaving russia the 28th of last month and i had 4 days to prepare, I am not a rich man i told her and i said that it was too too soon to meet, but she didn't understand me she did let me know her english wasn't very good written and speaking.so i just need some advice even though it was at my own risk that i answered the email in the first place, but the question which was running through my mind from the beginning was how did she get my email in the first place?Thank you XXXXX

This is a scam in which thousands and thousands of emails are sent out. If they get a response from half a percent, they can make thousands of dollars. Cease communication. The person sending this is attempting to steal your money
how would they attempt by steal my money?
At some point, she will need money to leave Russia, or buy a phone or pay a debt, etc. that is the typical pattern of these email scams. Again, it is very important that you not continue communicating. Nothing good will come from this. It is positively a scam to get money from you.
