One of my favorite quoted expression is: "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail." (Benjamin Franklin - 1706-1790) But there are also many variants, that are 'close' to swindle practices, but not (yet) labeled as real illegal organizations.
These are organizations that will use methods to keep you as long as possible as a paid customer, or those who ask far too much money for their services.
But if this and all our other information is not enough for you to feel yourself 'well prepared' and certain then you always can decide to provide yourself with more information, tools or services.

Write a detailed introduction letter (preferable translated in Russian), to receive a detailed reply of the woman If you write your Russian lady for the first (introduction letter) time, please write a detailed letter about yourself.
Ask specific questions and check if you receive answers on these questions In case you are using an Agency with email forwarding or other mail-services, and your correspondent is not responding on your specific personal questions, this could be a sign of being suspicious.
Another important thing is to confirm with her if your (original) letters indeed are reaching her.
