Scam letter(s) from Elena Smetchko to Nikita (Australia)

Letter 1
Nick hello!
excuse me that I could not write to you earlier.....
I'm writing to you as soon as I can!! I was busy with many arrangements!! also I had to repeat some words for my English test and I finally passed my test today morning!!!
today I was in the travel agency and I received an information about my trip!
I will be very thankful to you if you can meet me at the Airport! I will arrive to you on Tuesday, 7 May
I shall inform number of flight, the terminal and an arrival time probably Monday or on Sunday.
more in detail look at the end of the letter. I copied the information of agency I hope so much it's a good day for you to meet me! I am so glad to see that we are almost near our goal,and our meeting wait for us. I think I will call you from airport before my flight.
You know I booked tickets on Tuesday, 7 May flight and I will buy them before my intervew. People from embassy must be sure that I am not going to stay illegally, so I need to buy roundtrip tickets (with returning date).
I wanted to ask you about electronic tickets but they tell that I can't use because it is their businees to arrange all travel details and they have some extra money from all the things, you see it is just business.I think that you will be able to help me because I don't know anybody here and only you are my hope now, I think everything in your hands and I believe that you will not leave me here alone.please borrow some money. I am sure I will be able to return all your money back after a few weeks, I will get salary and I will collect the sum I own from you.
To be fair I am not sure I know what to say because I hate to ask but now I have no different way, you see.Please help me it is only money and much more important if we will meet in person I will do my best, you won`t be disappoined. I see that it sounds a little crazy but I can't believe that in the worst case I have to return home,they all will laugh at me.I think it rests with you to decide and I feel that you will help me because you are kind. I have about 300 US dollars yet and I think I need about 980 US dollars from your side with all travel needs and living here till my flight! (I had 1180 dollars, but flight from Hantimansiisk, opening visa, medical insurance and all travel needs costed about 800 dollars).
For truth I did not expect I will need to buy roundtrip tickets, but now I see that its a very strict rule.
I was sure that my mom will help me becasue she promised but now she sent letter that it is possible only in a few months or so because of family problems.and she can't send transfer now.I was in the bank to try to ask them about loan but they tell I have to have something to stay them and I have nothing to stay because I have only a few dress and things,some perfume and it is all I have,and small gift for you from russia with love. please send it today by Western Union or Money Gram
I will write you details:
Send it to russia, Gulfiya Shoutanova ! This is my full name! Also I've got an advice to send you a scan copy of my passport in case you need to confirm my details. this is my full name used in all official documents. They said this is all info you need.
But please for any case write down more info. The address where I'm staying:
Moscow, Mihaylowa 37, fl-10 post code 109428. I rent a small room In an apartment of an old policeman here, it's cheaper then hotel.The address of the closest Western Union (or MoneyGram) here is: "PROM-INVEST-BANK" 2-ja Institoutskaja, 6,stroenie-1

I have some money but it's not enough to complete my trip.
Please send me 980 US dollars and I will complete my trip!
After it please write me all details about the transfer - your FULL NAME and Money Transfer Control Number.!! I will call you as soon as I receive it.
When I receive the money I will pay for my trip and only then the embassy will put all final stamps on my documents.
I've bought you few souvenirs with Russian attributes!!! I'm sure you will like them! If you need something more please let me know, they are not expensive. Also I bought two boxes of Russian chocolate! I hope so much when I come to you we will like each other!
You are already very special to me!
Please when I come to you tell me more about you and your country!
I will listen to everything you tell me and I will do everything you tell me! I trust you really much!
I hope you will not do something to hurt my feelings.... I think you are really good man. I will never do anything to hurt yours!!!
By statistics Moscow is the second most expensive city in the world after Tokyo... everything is so expensive here... and I have to pay for my rent and food and buy tickets.. please help me..

Letter 2
hello, Nick! i am understand...ok.. but I not understand you...will you help me or no?
I have good news: my mother sent me 90 dollars (my mom has sold all her jewelry) now I need 890.
I do my best to our meeting occurs as soon as possible!!! I can not receive money without "transfer control number".
they have told me about it in bank. This categorical rule! tomorrow I will get "money transfer control number" from mom and will go to bank.
Unfortunately the time goes very slowly. I would like to pack my luggage right now to get on plane to go to you. I want to see you. I want to find peace in your arms.
When I close my eyes I imagine our meeting. Do you imagine our meeting? My heart is going to jump out of my chest when I think about it.
I feel I always want such man. I’m dying without you. I have never been such in love before. When I arrive I won’t have any white flag in my hands.
I’ll submit to you completely. I’ll be yours forever. Kiss you and embrace you. I want to say that I can hardly bear to stay in Moscow.
When will I be able to touch you? Tell me the day when I will be able to get on plane and to fly to you? I finish my letter.
I’m waiting for good news from you! Can I still hope? Will you help me? I need $890 I’m very glad that you replied me. I thought that telling about money, I have lost you.
In Russia it’s often occurs with men. I suggest it is for hard economic situation in our country. Men don’t need women with their love.
I don’t want to believe that the quantity of real men diminishes. To send money through Western Union or Money Gram you need to:
1. Find a local Western Union or Money Gram office (they are usually located in the banks and post offices)
2. Fill in their send form with my name: Gulfiya and my surname: Shoutanova along with my country: Russia (my city - Moscow) location and the amount you're sending - 890 USD
3. Take a copy of the receipt that they give to you that contains your full name and the money transfer control number (or reference#).
please write me all details about the transfer - your FULL NAME and Money Transfer Control Number or if it Money Gram - reference#.!!
I can not receive money without "money transfer control number or reference#" The address of the closest Western Union (or MoneyGram) here is:
"PROM-INVEST-BANK" 2-ja Institoutskaja, 6,stroenie-1
my adress IN MOSCOW: Moscow, Mihaylowa 37, fl-10 post code 109428
mmm......address of Western Union in Moscow is not necessary to know.
I wrote to you, the nearest bank for me IN MOSCOW! the Bank of the recipient can be ANY! I'm very alone in Moscow.
The elegance of this city doesn't interest me. Soon we'll be together?
You can not imagine how tired I am.
I have done everything I must and now I am waiting for you only!
My heard is bleeding when I see grief in letters. ok
..write to me pls beautiful letter! Gulffi
Letter 3
I have get money my dear Nick!!
Like I told you I was interviewed at the Embassy about my visa. I was asked a lot of different questions, like my background, salary, the aim of my arrival to the Australia and other form questions. Thanks God the interview went well and my visa is ready to be issued. I was so happy to hear such wonderful news, since in fact it means, that we have to wait just a few days to be finally together. I would finally kiss you and give you the warmest hug and it would be for real indeed. But I was also told about one ****** thing which I must do. Now they have new rules this rule is not official. I am so nervous and I even don't know how to tell you that. You see I have to show 2500$ at the Customs here in Moscow and in your country. It is bad news.. :-(
Good news - today I have received a transfer from my daddy 990. I did not expect!!! I pay for the ticket by father's money! Thanks you. I shall bring your money back.
In embassy demand 2500 from me. You had sent me 930! I need now 1570! all sum (930+1570) I shall bring with myself!
As I was explained that each person from former republics of Soviet Union arriving to your country should have this amount of money.
It is necessary to prove my "financial stability" and ability to travel In the Australia and to pay for all charges. It is necessity, because many people especially single women arriving to your country do a lot of crime or something illegal. Now the rules to pass the Customs are harder especially after terrorist actions which happen in your and my country. Now I can pass customs only showing this money to prove. I understand, that it is a good rule for your country from the point of view of safety.
But what shall we do now? I even couldn't imagine this will be such big sum of money 2500$. My dear,if only we knew about this ****** rule, we would prepare for that. We are so close to each other but we need to solve this problem.
Nick, please understand that I do not need to spend this 2500$, I only need to show at customs to pass it.
Unfortunately for example your support letter will not help me. I am now far from friends and I can not expect for their help.
And even if I were near my family and friends now they would still not help me because they don't have this sum of money. My dear, now I hope only for your help. I shall pray God about it. The happiness is so close, but I cannot make anything. It is not in my power. if I don't pass the Customs now as planned my visa will become invalid and I will not be able to enter the Australia durig at least a few years. I am shocked and you are my only hope in this situation.

We cannot lose each other Nick, especially now. The positive moment in this situation is that I repeat againI don't need to spend this money,I will only show it at the Customs. I need only show money, I shall not spend it. I am very much worried.
You are my sunshine in the darkness because in this world full of cruely you managed somehow to get deep into my heart.
You are really a man and I ask you not to give up. Maybe if you don't have this money you can borrow from your friends for a few days and I will give it to you as soon as we meet at the airpot. Please try to get the money. I need 1570 usd!!

Letter 4

yes I understand!
I have good news. My mom sent me a 600$, and neighbors can make a discount - 400$
And now I need to collect 1700$. Tell me can you to do it today in 1-2 hours?
It's difficult for me to ask you for help! I hope you'll understand me.
I've never asked anyone for anything like this so I feel ill at ease.
The only thing that makes me do it is my great desire to be with you.
I hope it won't be an unsolvable problem for you.
Our lifes depend for happiness on money. It's so unfair!
I want to come to you, to hug you to feel you're real and it wasn't just a dream.
I can't wait to be together with you. If we managed to create serious and trustful relationships,
I would be the happiest woman in the world.
After a long time I feel I've found MAN!!!
I'm absolutely honest with you now!!!
I begging God to give me a chance to meet you. I want to know you better and experience happiness.
I don’t want to think it all can end soon and just my words would stay beside me.
It’s a bad final if we are not together! It’s a bad final for our story, a sad one! Gulffi
