    Unfortunately you are being scammed. Russian customs do not charge money to leave Moscow airport or anywhere else in Russia.
    The phone going to answer voicemail is another scammer trick, its because the gorgeous Olga from the Volga may really be Ivan from Irkutsk !
    Have you Googled this womans photo? If you do, you may find that it is from a model agency or used by other scammers.
    You need to cut all contact with this person straight away and obviously dont send any money. !
  • Ditto Alethia.

    You're being 100% scammed.

    Your "girlfriend" could very well be a couple of guys drinking vodka and laughing their asses at you.

    Run away now.

    Happy New Year.

  • No there is no such a thing in Russia. Avoid as mentioned above.
  • I had a similar story in the past. Some people do have that as a job. They are even whole businesses behind this kind of attempts. Stay away.
