Well Russian girls typically try to woo Americans into sending them money for their plane trips to Russia. Tens of thousands of dollars at least, are lost every year to this. Typically they spend a few weeks to half a year until going for the cash.
This particular individual, yes, did a horrible photoshop (I have the background standard from Microsoft for heaven's sake). And his gig is the same, do the talking for a few months before going for the cash.
The photo is for laughs though. Anybody taken in by this, deserves to be.
