Yes, I too had the same story from this one, same photos, same ran out of money when got to Moscow and was 'crying not having enough money to pay food or hotel'. Was getting documents and passed visa interview in one day. etc etc etc... scammer, I have same photos exactly and more. I have same story and more... actually the email is almost identical... but I refused to send money without seeing a copy of her passport and visa, so naturally emails stopped immediately.

Another she uses is firstname.lastname@example.org - same exact story and method of scam. I also have video were her words were hard to understand a bit, probably because was made for someone else originally but I didn't understand the name. Same "please lend me $ and I will pay you back when I am with you there"... BS alert. I insisted she send me a copy of her passport with Visa page, never happened of course and emails stopped. But yes, she got a letter of recommendation from her hospital etc etc...
