(Newser) – The alleged Russian spy capturing most of the media attention today is Anna Chapman. The New York Post describes her as "a flame-haired, 007-worthy beauty" with a "Victoria's Secret body" who is accused of passing info to Russian handlers weekly since January. Her Facebook page has all kinds of "suggestive self-portraits," notes Lauren Frayer at AOL News. Chapman is 28, divorced, and reportedly has a master's in economics and an online real estate business. She lives in a swanky part of New York City's financial district.

An FBI agent was to set her up by posing as a handler and asking, "Excuse me, but haven't we met in California last summer?" She was to answer, "No, I think it was the Hamptons." She never showed up for that rendezvous, however, perhaps because she smelled a rat. Moscow, meanwhile, has acknowledged that some of those arrested are Russian citizens but criticized the State Department for its "Cold War-era spy stories," reports AP.
