Letter(s) from Galina Plyusnina to Chester (UK)

Letter 1

Hello Chester!
Hello, I promised I am going to tell you more about myself now.
I am 28 years old.
My name is Lyubov.
I have never been married and I have no children.
My height is 5.4(166cm) and my weigh is 110(51kg).
You can have an impression about it from my picture.
I work as a shop-assistant and do sell clothes for women (skirts, trousers, blouses ).
I live in Russia. The city is called Novosibirsk. If you look at the map, you will find it close to the center, in the beginning of Sibiria. but somewhere I am going to get a student visa and I am going to come to your country.
I thought a lot about it and had come to such decision.
I do really want to move to a more stable country.
The life is very complicated here. I know it will not be easy in a foreign country. But I am sure I can do much more in your country. I am a hard-working person and I am not afraid of difficulties, so with the opportunities that your country gives I can do more than I do here.
I already have some experience living and working in a foreign country. Some years ago I worked in Australia and I should say I liked it very much. So I know what is waiting for me and I don't want to waste time.
Living in Australia I had relations with a man. But I had to go back to my country as my visa was over. He didn't want to wait for me any longer. It was too difficult for him. It was a very hard period for me but I could handle it. I tried to have correspondence with foreigners. But as soon as they get to know I was from Russia they disappeared. They thought I was a scammer. I hope that you are not scared that I am from Russia. I want you to understand, I am not a scammer.
I don't need money from you. I heard much about it and I really feel sorry for women who are true and want to find their happiness. All this is so wrong as there are so many people who really want to find their friends or second halves.
And internet is a very good opportunity for this.
I hope that you like my pictures. I am not a model, of course.
I am just an average Russian girl who is truly seeking friends or more...
I hope that you are interested in me and I will hear back from you. And perhaps, in the future we will have an opportunity to meet. We will be good friends or maybe we have a relationship.
Well, I hope that now you understand me better and I will be waiting impatiently for your reply.
Have a nice day!

Letter 2

Dear Chester!
I like your pic. You do look real nice there.
You seem to be a very good and caring person.
This is always pleasant to see your answer here.
Do you like my pics?
I have friend Vika. She is close friend. She makes all my pics.
She likes to photographe me. It's her hobby. I like to pose her.
I decided to come to the Internet cafe again to write you.
I already spoke you - I shall arrive to you in a month.
I still choose college in which I shall go to study.
I shall inform you the name when I shall know.
I shall know all the information in a week.
I am going from the post office. I decided to send my parents a letter. As I already told you I am not really in good relations with them. But any way, they are my parents and I love them.
I also have a brother and he is younger than me and they give him all the love they have. They always loved him more than me and didn't pay much attention to me. My mum wanted to have a son very much and she couldn't get pregnant for a long time and she was very happy when she got to know she was going to have a son. Of course, it hurts to know that they love him a lot and are not very interested in my life. But if they are happy, I am glad for them.
My last relations were 2 years ago. Unfortunately, it didn't work out as he was too busy spending good time with his friends all the time and he almost paid no attention to me. I was just like a beautiful thing for him and nothing more. Since that time I had no relations with other men.
You know that I write from the internet cafe.
I have to go now. People are coming and coming to the internet cafe and you know my time is limited (15min). Internet cafe is a place where everyone can come and use a computer there. We have to pay for such a service. It is not a library where you can use computers free of charge. When I lived in Australia I often went to the library and could use computer there as long as I needed. But here the time is limited as there are too many people who need to use them. Please, tell me about your family.
What relations do you have with them?
P.S. I asked you in my previous letter to send me your address.
I want to send you a card and my picture. Or perhaps, I will send you a hand written letter.

Letter 3

Hello dear Chester!
full name? - Lyubov Anikeeva.
Today I am writting to you why I am alone. I am so tired that males sees on me as on beautiful pic only but not on woman.
I think you like my spirit mainly not my appearance.
That's why I feel so easy myself with you. I have never felt it with another males. I feel that you like my spirit firstly and then appearance.
I want you to understand that I do really like you very much.
And I think that we have much in common and may be if meet we will understand that we are a good match.
I am trying to get more information about the student visa and I am doing a paperwork that is neccesary for it. There are so many things that I should do for this but I think it is worth it.
I am going to come to your country. I am sure I will get my visa.
And I want to know will you meet me there? You are my friend and you are a very close person to me already. And I like you very much. I feel that there is something between us.
I hope you too have the same feelings. Of course, I can't say that I know you very well. But I feel that you are close to me.
I wish to know you better. I wonder how it can be to spend time with you, to be with you, to cook together, to have dinner together, to watch movies, to walk holding hands.
Letters are good, they help to understand people better. But only meeting can show the real feelings. When you can touch, look into each other's eyes, it says a lot.
Please, tell me what you think of this. Would you like to meet me?
Any way you can be my friend. I will be in a foreign country and I will need a person I can trust. And I trust you already and I hope you do the same.
Please, think on this and let me know if you too want to meet with me. I want it very much. I want to see you in real life, to talk to you, to know you real but not only through the letters.
I think, I can trust you?
I already wrote to you, that all my pics is done by my friend Vika.
She says I have a beautiful body.
She is a very talanted photographer and I like to be her model.
She is my friend and is a very good girl. She usually takes pics of me. We went to work together.
She works close to my place. She is a shop-assistant too.
Also today she has made 2 pics me and my passport.
I shall attach to you it in the following letter.
I will go now to get more information about visa.
I am going to get very important information.
I hope to hear good news.
I shall have information approximately in half an hour.

Letter 4

Hello my Chester!
I have all the information about my visa now. And I will get it without any problems. It will be so great to come to your country at last and to see you. I even can't believe this could happen some day! Yes, perhaps, I act like a silly girl.
But I already dream of our meeting. I try to imagine how this could be. How I will touch your hand, look into your eyes.
So now I have to do is to show them all the papers and to pay for it.
But here I have one problem. I tried to save money. But I didn't expect I would have to pay for visa so soon. I thought it would be later. So I don't have enough money right now.
And I need your help in this if you really want to meet me.
I need 240 US dollars to pay for visa.
It will include medical insurance and everything that should be there. Perhaps, you think why it is so expensive. Well, sum of money includes visa, insurance, medical certificate and many other papers.
I already have got my passport for going abroad. I have already made it and have paid for it. But I didn't think that they would give visa so soon. And if I don't pay for it now, I could have problems in the future with getting visa. And I don't want to miss this chance. To prove you that I am real and I don't lie to you, I am going to attach you a copy of my passport.
So all I need to do now is to pay for visa. And then everything will be done and all we have to do is wait for the time it is issued. I have only 7-10 to pay for it and I will get it without any problems.
This visa allows me to stay in your country.
I also plan to work there while I study. I don't want to depend on any one. I will return back your 240 $.
I am asking it to borrow. I will work and return back it.
I promise.
I've got to know that the best way for you to send money through Western Union or Money gram. Please, don't send me money by regular mail. First, for sure I will not get it as they steal money and things here. And also it will take long time for the mail to come. And then I will miss my chance with visa already.
So, please, use WU or Money gram for sending money. It is an easy and quick way to get it.
You already know my address, I've sent it to you already.
And my full name is Lyubov Anikeeva.
You better check WesternUnion.com or Moneygram.com to get more information and also offices that are close to you.
Also there is an opportunity to send money from the credit card. You just need to visit any office of WU or MG.
Or through the site westernunion.com or moneygram.com You even don't need to leave your place to do it.
You can send money to any Western Union of Novosibirsk.
Please, understand my problem and send me 240 dollars.
So, please, let me know if you can help me in this.

Letter 5

Hello Chester..
I do not know what to start my letter...
I feel shame and offended.
I just want to tell you that I am completely serious.
I have serious intentions to come and I am not going to lie to you. I am not a silly little girl that plays games to get money.
Can't you see it from my letters?
I asked you to send me 240. And I feel shame for this.
But I had no other choice then to ask you. The problem is that I have only 7-10 days to pay for my visa. I didn't realize I would Need the money so urgently. They took my papers and told me that I wouldn't pay in 7-10 days, they would just refuse me.
And then I will not have another chance to get visa.
It was a shock for me. I thought that I could just leave the papers and then pay for it before the trip. I think I would be able to find the money by that time. But it was beyond my forces.
I was shocked.
-
I went to all my friends and acquaintances. But all refused to me.
They don't give such a big sum of money.
-
I don't ask my parents as they just don't give me money.
When the last time I asked them to help me, they refused me.
They told me they had to support my brother and themselves.
It hurt me. That is why I do not ask them about anything any more and I almost don't talk to them.
-
I asked my friend Vika to help me, but she had not such money.
She is married and has a child. And recently they have bought an apartment and took it in credit.
-
I also went to the bank to check there. But they even didn't listen to me. My salary is only 120 Euro. And they just can't give me 240.
-
I had tears. That is why I decided to ask you. And I feel shame for this. I understand that it is very difficult for you to trust the girl you have never seen before. Lots of Russian women lied to foreigners.
But I am not the same. I am real. And I am not going to lie to you!
I promise! I ask you this money not as A present to me, I am going to give them back to you. As soon as I come there and start working I will give you money back. I told you I was going to study and to work. I will be able to pay for my studies and for my accommodation.
I already told you I was going to get a student visa.
I will be able to come to your country and to choose any university or college. I can stay there as soon as I finish it. I am going to choose the one that is close to you to be able to see you often.
I ask you one more time, please, understand me and send me 240.

Letter 6

Hi dear Chester!!
Sorry, I could not write to you earlier. I had death in family, and should leave from city, therefore I could not write or receive your letters. My grandfather has died, because had sick heart.
But I have one good news. My payment have agreed to wait up to the end of next week. You can send money up to the end of next week?
It even additional 10 days. You will make it for me? Tell me truth.
They said that I must pay a visa prior to June, 27. Then on June, 30 they will give me a visa! I can arrive at once to you already on June, 30.
I do not lie to you. I am going to get money in WU office or MoneyGram using my passport. If I was not real, I wouldn't be able to get the money!!! Please, understand that I am real!
I sent you a copy of my passport in my last letter.
The problem is that I have no time to wait. I have only
10 days for this.
Please, understand that next time they may not even take the documents for visa, if they refuse me now. And they will refuse me in this if I do not pay in time. They will just tell me what for I try to get visa for the second time if you have no money. So I am just in hopeless situation.
All my thoughts are about one thing now. Then I may not have such a chance again. Your goverment has a limited amount of student visas. And if I miss my chance now, i may not have such a chance again in the future. It is impossible to get another kind of visa. NO one will give me a tourist visa.
It is impossible for a single russian lady to get it. I asked about the work visa. It is a very difficult process. And also more expensive one. I don't have a diploma about high education in your country. And the russian one is not valid in your country. The Fiancee visa is a very long process and complicated process. It will take about half a year to make all the paperwork and if they don't see that we do love each other truly they will just refuse in the Embassy.
I want to repeat. please, understand - I ask you to lend me money. I understand it is too expensive for a preset.
I understand that 240USD is a big some of money in your country.
I don't believe in miracles as I was disappointed many times in this life. You will not loose this money. I will come to your place and will work there. And as soon as I earn I will give you money back.
I've been thinking a lot about us yesterday.
My heart aches when I understand that you are far from me.
I wish I could lessen the distance between us. I know that I have to be patient and wait.
Perhaps, you will think that I am silly but I don't want to hold it all inside and I want to share my feelings with you.
I am emotional person and I want you to see my feelings.
Please, understand me. I want to share this with you.
I have so many emotions about you and I miss you so much.
I think about you all the time.
I get up with the thoughts about you and I go to bed thinking of you too.
I feel that I want to take care of you, I want to give you all me.
Please, don't think I am weird. But this is what I feel about you. And I want you to know this.
Life goes one. Nothing new happens. I go to work, do different things at home, meet my friends. But any way I do something I think of you.
Please, tell me what you think and feel about me. It is really very important for me and I need to know this.

Letter 7

Hi my dear Chester!
I do not lie to you. I am open and sincere with you. I don't know what to do, no one from my relatives or friends can give me these money. I am in a hopeless situation. I can rely only on you.
Perhaps, if you don't have the money, you can ask someone of your friends or relatives? I ask you for for help but not to make me a present. I will give the money back any way. Tell your friends and relatives that I guarantee to give the money back. I tell you once again I am going to work and to study in your country so I will give the money back any way. Please, just believe me and send me it. I need only 240USD. I talked to people in WU and moneygram. And they told me you could use your credit card to send the money. You can do it from any office of WU and Moneygram.
And you can send me money even staying at home. You just need to go to www .westernunion.com or www .moneygram.com Please, send me the money if you have a credit card. I will give you the money back as soon as I come to your place.
Next week they can just officially refuse me in visa. Please, understand that everything is ready there and I need just to pay for it. I will come to your place by all means if I pay
240 USD now. All the paperwork is done. The problem is only money.
It took me much forces to make all the paperwork for visa.
I had to visit all doctors to get a medical certificate.
It is one of the conditions of yor government to allow people only who are not sick. I am healthy. And there were many other papers and it took me much forces and time to get all. And now when there is only one step left, I am in the corner. I don't know who else to ask if not you.
Everything is in you hands now. I hope you will do it soon and send me money.
I may not have any other chance to get visa. I hope you will believe me. And I want you to know that I am sincere with you!
I hope I will touch your heart and you will have feelings to me. I hope you will help me.
I've got up today with the thoughts about you and it is such a happiness to know that I have a close person in my life and I hope you feel the same about me.
My friends are really very good people. Perhaps, their life is not really good and comfortable as you know the situation in Russia, I already told you about this several times. Salaries are too small here. And many people have to save every rouble to buy a washing machine or a fridge. And my friends too have such difficulties.
But I am proud of them. They overcome all the difficulties together.
This is what I want to. I want to be together in joy and sorrows, even if the life is not really comfortable, help each other, understand each other.
I think that every person needs such a place where he feels comfortable and safe. Especially, it is important for a woman.
We now have to be strong. Enjoy your day and think of me.
I pray that you have believed to me and have helped me.
