Romance scam letter(s) from Ekaterina Basalaeva to Daniel (USA)
Letter 1
My dear Dan!!!
Why you have not answered?
Yes, I understand that asked you for help though told you that had all the money for the trip. But please, understand my problem.
I have has sold a fur coat. But this money is not enough for the ticket. I don’t know where to take the money. I hope only for you.
Nobody can help me here. I don’t know anybody here in Moscow.
I didn’t know I had to buy a two way ticket. $976 is a cost for the ticket there and the return ticket. Your government asks to have a return ticket for the case my visa is inspired or I am not able to enter the University. They do it because they are afraid of the immigrants. When I checked the cost of the ticket they told me the cost only of the one ticket. Do you understand now why I don’t have enough money for the ticket?
I am still in Moscow. And I have spent lots of money already to stay here. Everything is very expensive here and my money is limited. Please, understand my worries and help me.
I have already paid part of the money for ticket not to be sold to another person. I have left 300 dollars that is why I ask you to send me money. I ask you to send me only $376. 976 dollars is a very reasonable price. And if I don’t pay the whole sum of the money for the ticket then I will loose all the money that I paid for my ticket to be reserved.
The other problem is that my visa is given to me only for 2 months except of 3 months. I don’t know why they did it. But that was the decision of your Embassy. And they even didn’t explain me the reason. And I can’t wait. That is why I should come as soon as possible and enter the University. If I have my visa for longer time then I could stay here for more time and try to save money.
But I have no time.
I ask you to help me but don’t ask you for a present! I will come, enter the University and give you the money back. I will work and will be able to give you it back. I don’t want you to think that I want to use you just to move to your country.
I hope that you will understand me and will send me the money.
There is only thing left before we meet. There is only little step left. So please, think and send me the money. It is only 376 dollars. I don’t think it is much for the opportunity to be happy.
I think we will be able to be happy with you. But you should do this so we could meet with you. ..
I tried to prove you that I am real several times already.
I have sent you a list of paper with my your and my names.
But why don’t you want to believe me? I have sent you also the copy of my passport. Why don’t you still believe me?
I am going to try and prove again that I am real.
I am going to attach you the copy of my visa. And I want you to understand that I have only serious intentions and I am really going to come to you. I don’t play any games. I am going to get your money in Moscow with my passport ( I have sent it already in my previous letters ) and with my visa. If I am not real I would not be able to get the money!
And I really want to come to you.
Please, believe me and send me the money. .
I just wanted to let you know that you are a very close person to me.
You know I often think of us and think how it is to be close, hold your hand, kiss your face… Sometimes I miss you so much that even feel a body ache. But hope that very soon the waiting will be over and I will be with you at last.
In the evenings I sit down and try to imagine our life. There are so many things that I want to do together. I want to take care of you and to have a true family.
It is such a happiness to love and to be loved. And you can’t imagine how happy I am to know that you love me and I love you.
When I feel sad, I immediately think of how great it will be to spend time with you. To go shopping together and then to cook in the evening, to watch movies, to go dancing together, to read together, to go out all together.
Please, write me your thoughts on this, how you imagine us together.
Take care.
I need you and I truly hope that you feel the same.
Sorry, but I can't send you pictures now as I am in Moscow now.
I have no here a camera.
I don't think it is a problem as soon I will come to you and you will be able to see me in real life but not at the pictures.
