After one email, I was asking for money.
It is not pleasant for me to speak about it, but I have not enough money to write to you letters in it and the subsequent month. The Internet of cafe it is very expensive to manage for me, and I have already exhausted all savings. If you might help me. It is necessary for me about 500 dollars to continue to communicate free with you. If it is possible you will help me.
As I knew she was a scammer, I continued to talk with her and said OK, I can pay. This is the answer.
I now really need in money and I shall not refuse your help. But you should not think, that it is gratuitous. When we shall meet I can return to you your money.
You heard about " the Western union " something? It is the known company which is engaged in remittances worldwide. So it will be easier to send your help, than by mail. Mail in Russia works badly and it is impossible to be sure, that your letter will reach me.
In " Western The union " you should know my full name and the data:
The country: Russia;
I asked for a picture to see what would be the answer:

Yes I have a picture, but you to me tell please when you will send me money.
My dear, I wait from you for the answer.
