The picture in the profile was just the bait used by Russian scammers.
After harvesting your email address like this (or any one of many other methods), Russian scammers start on their email sequence.
Email scams are probably the most prevalent method of Russian scammers. Other times they contact you out of the blue via direct email.
An email scam is simply a case where some volume operation (could be a man or a woman, and may be in Russia, Ukraine, Nigeria, or New Jersey) contacts you by email, engages you in communication, and eventually attempts to bait you into sending money. Often they will post very appealing profiles on Match.com, POF.com, or a Russian dating site like Ukraine or Russian and receive many thousands of responses.
But it is an open site where thousands of members post their own profiles, so scammers slip through sometimes.
