Still not sure if being scammed

I've been writing letters back and forth with a Russian woman once a day for 3 weeks now. Is it typical that the woman would not have an phone nor computer. She says she goes to the library every evening to write to me.

Well, you're not being scammed if you're not sending money or spending it on services linked with her (like pay-per-letter services).

If you ARE using pay-per-letter services, than already there's a very high probability that things aren't what they seem.

But to answer your very specific question as to whether it is typical for a Russian/Ukrainian woman to not have a phone or computer, no, this not typical, especially the phone part.

I could say more if I knew more, like on what site you met, but now EVERY Russian/Ukrainian has a phone and if they say they don't, it's almost certain that they are lying. Not only this, but they have a phone that can take unlimited INCOMING calls and texts free, even international calls and texts.

That's because nearly all their cell phone work on a pre-paid basis such that the pre-paid credit on their phones only decrease when they make outgoing calls or send texts.
