Letter 2

Hi my dear and gentle Doug.
Today I can tell that is ready to trip! To me have given out the visa in agency of visas and I am very glad to this. Now I can gather to you. I am very lucky woman and that it is very big success, that I got my visa so quickly. Also they have told that I'm very successful and lucky lady. I was so glad. But now I have no any pleasure. Only tears. Why? It is convenient for me to reserve tickets through special agency, anyway last time I and have made. It is connected to procedure of passage of systems of safety in the Sheremetyevo, for strengthening of the control over passenger streams, with the purpose of prevention of acts of terrorism. And so, in it problems are not present, if not. They have broken such price for the services, that I hardly from a chair have not fallen. SMILE! You imagine they have requested for tickets one and a half (!!!) thousand dollars. Well I know that that tickets do not cost so much. I have told it, that tickets, even having taken in calculation cost of services, do not cost one and a half thousand. Indeed, they have found more cheaply. In total for $956.34 (together with cost of services on check of me as passenger and preparation of documents).
But the beginning of the flight is 23-March. I so wanted to be on March, 21 already with you, it in fact day of my birth.
As I expected to receive the vacation grant money, before holiday at a rate of 1190,00 $ , I without fear have brought in a pledge, for services, at a rate of 550 $ I prepared for trip and have sold the gold ornaments, borrowed money girlfriends.
But contrary to my expectations, my boss has told to me that I shall receive the grant money for a vacation only after the ending of a vacation.
It has embarrassed me.I have paid my last money. I cannot will explain to the boss, that money for me are necessary for trip to America. Believe Doug, it is better to boss to not know where I fly. Otherwise to me in general except for problems to see nothing in a life. I and to girlfriends have not told for what I borrow money.
What to speak about the boss.
The number of the flight on which I reserved the ticket is:1:05 pm Depart Moscow (SVO) Arrive Washington DC (IAD) 6:55 pm Wed 23-Mar Air France 2145 / 26 It is very difficult for me to tell you about it. But I have done everything I could. I have paid for my visa. I have bought the ticket on a train up to Moscow. I paid a part of the ticket. But this money is not enough. I didn't want to burden you. I wanted to reach you with my own money but unfortunately I failed. Now I have to pay the remaining part. It is only $ 400 USD. I have to pay this money before 15 March 2005 morning. Otherwise I will lose my money. If you love me, if you trust me and if you want to see me soon, please, send the money for the ticket before 14 March 2005. I understand that it is a difficult decision for you, but we must trust each other. Any union without trust is impossible if it is a union of wife and husband or union of boy-friend and girl-friend or union of business partners. I don't want to be hypocritical. That's why I want to tell you following: I do not think that you would like to give the love to the woman whom you won't trust. Also I would not like to give my love to the man which I won't trust. This is a first test for us. And much depends upon it, may be everything. We must trust each other. That's why I was the first who have made the first step. Step to you. Certainly, if you do not want, then you may not help me. It is bad but not fatal. I will lose my money. It is bad too, but not fatal too. I speak so because I am in despair and confusion. Now, when we are divided only with one step, I am afraid. I am afraid that you will not help, and all my diligence will be gone. I love you and I want to be with you and the word of honour, your help is necessary for me. I have not calculated my forces. But together we are much stronger. To pass through difficulties and barrier it is together much easier. I want to present you all my infinite love and fidelity. I did not want to ask you to help. I thought that I can make all myself. The loneliness has made me strong. I have got used to live without the help, and to rely only on myself. I very seldom address to somebody for the help, but now I ask you to help me. I have made a step forward. Please make a step towards me. I hope that I have not offended you. I love you and I trust. I know that you will not throw me now when there was only one step. Tell me Doug, can you help me? If you have an opportunity you may help me.
As soon as I shall receive my money on the ending of vacation I shall compensate to you my duty in 400 dollars.
Please help to me, Doug. I did not ask the help many years, it is not easy to ask for me the help, I have got used to rely on myself instead of on luck.
I wondered how it is possible to do. There is an International Company, which deals with money transfers. Its name a Western Union (by the way, they have a website www.westernunion.com). It has Offices in many cities and countries. There is an Office in my city. If you want and if you can help me, you may send me money using westernunion according following data:
zip cod. 456205

To get the money, I should tell the employee of bank your:
1 full name
2 full address
3 exact amount
4 some confidential numbers (Money Transfer Control Number),
5 For Natalya Rykava
which will be given to you, when you send the money.
Without this information, I shall be not capable to receive money.
I love you very much! I think about you Doug every time.
Please, help to me, Doug.

Letter 3

Hi my Doug!
I in Moscow, at the airport. I have arrived to Moscow and at once from railway station have gone to the airport. I have decided to have registration at once to not worry tomorrow. I have gone to a department of registration of tickets and the control of luggage. And I have one trouble. I have my visa and the air ticket. But it was insufficiently for visiting your country. The men from Airport Service has told me, that I should have extra money (not less than 700 USD) To be in territory of America. I have answered, that I haven't extra money, and it was the truth: when I've left my home I've had visa, air-ticket, the train-ticket and a little money(about 800 Russian rubles for a meal and other charges) They have explained me that extra money is necessary to convince the Government, that I'm a decent(right) girl, and when I will get on the American territory, I shall not become the tramp or the prostitute, and that I should have money for the hotel as any tourist. I have told them, that I really am tourist and I have shown them my tourist visa. But the man has smiled and has told me that he never saw tourists without money.
These words have offended me very strongly. I have told them, that I will be met by my beloved man, and that I fly directly to him. I wanted to give them your phone number, but they have refused call to you. Unfortunately your phone number was for them not too convincing argument. He has told, that there can be something, for any reason you, cannot meet me. It can be, an automobile fuse, accident, breakage of the machine, or any accident. In any of these cases, I shall stay one in the another's country without money, and without anyone familiar. I shall be compelled, to beg or steal, or to be engaged in prostitution.
I have been very much indignant and upset with these words. I swore at them, and spoke that not such girl. On what, he has answered me - all so speak, but it occurs, and is a lot of such cases. He has demanded from me to show him at least 700 American Dollars. And I have answered, that I have no such money. I was confused. I for a long time swore at them. But in any case I should pay 700 USD.
When I shall have money, I will receive ticket on nearest flight in this day. Otherwise I will not get aboard the plane. But you should not worry, because I will get this money back, when I arrive to you. I shall not spend, any dollar.
This sum is necessary for me, for crossing border. I cannot write much because I use the Internet of cafe. I should spend night in Moscow in a waiting room. It is much more terrible than I thought. Tomorrow I again will take advantage of services of Internet - cafe to receive your letter.
My love Doug as soon as possible send me 700 USD. You may send me money using Western Union again. It is located not far from the Airport where I am. I am so frightened. I cannot be in Moscow for a long time, because I have no money for a meal and a for the night lodging. I only have slightly meal which I took from a house for my trip in a train. Now already evening. I should have money as soon as possible because I cannot be in Moscow for a long time.
It is so terrible.
