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 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 Krasnoyarsk, opening visa, medical insurance and all travel needs costed about 800 dollars).
For truth I didn`t expect I will need to buy roundtrip tickets, but now I see that its a very strict rule.
Please send it today by Western Union or Money Gram
I will write you details:
Send it to
Russia, Moscow, Elena Metelkina!!!!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 in Moscow is Moscow, Nikitskaya B. street 43-12 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:
UralSib Bank
Nikitskaya B. Street 14/2,build. 2
MOSCOW , 125009
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..
Sorry if I missed something or didn't comment please let me know I was so busy with with all preparations!!!!
Your Girlfriend, Elena
