Hello tarabit, and welcome to eater!
Glad to read you noticed it was a scam. There isn't much info you provided, but most likely it will be one of the following:
*she falls madly in love with you after 5 emails, her mother/brother/other relative gets sick and she needs money
*she falls madly in love with you after 5 emails, wants to come visit you and needs money for a visa/travel documents
*she falls madly in love with you after 5 emails in which she tells of her parents being brutally slaughtered leaving her with the will in a refugee camp in Senegal.
All of which are scams of course. Hearing from what you tell us she (well in reality a he, most likely) contacted you on a real account, which leads back to you. We very strongly advise not to bait people with your real email-accounts. You see, most email providers send along a bit of code with every email you send, and that can be used to trace you to your doorstep. The odds of them showing up are very small, but in the end they're still criminals and it's better not to take any chances.
If you do want to string her along, I'd advise you to make a fresh email account from one of the next providers (Gmail or Hushmail are the safest), and reply from that one with a fake name, fake contact info etc. They won't notice they didn't send to your brand new account - they send those messages to hundreds of people at the same time. If you have any questions at all, feel free to ask. Plenty of helpful people around that love to get you sorted.

Tell us more about your 26 year old new friend, Her name and where she found you and what she has to say. We can track her down and figure out what she is up to. Sounds like fun.
It seems I found her here. So now we know her game. The Senegal Refugee. Be prepared to deal with Bankers, Reverands and Barristers. This can go on for months.
