Emails from Elena Lapshina to Chris (USA)
Hello my beloved Chris!!!
Chris, now I have gone to the embassy and I have been said very "good" news, Chris. To put it more exactly, bad news, it is unpleasant news for us. They have told me, that when I'll go to the board of the airplane, I'll need to have no less than 1800 dollars in pocket and document, confirmatory this. Because I'll arrive to you with the work visa and I'll go to the USA as a worker. Your name and address are not pointed in documents, only it is pointed that I'll fly to USA. And this money is needed for a life in the USA for 90 days (since validity of the visa is 90 days). You lose nothing Chris! Because when I arrive you, I'll give you this money. Without this money I'll not be released outside of Russia. I have money for tickets, but I do not know where to take 1800 thousand dollars.

With ticket round-trip there are determined warranties that person will be back into his country.
Especially, this is wide-spread for young women, not having children and relatives outside of Russia. Also she has said th

And my GOD, I got 1000 persons in results! It was interesting and fun to watch. I did flip through pages, next, next, next, but I did not like anybody. Katya did weary from this and asked me to go home, but I did not want it, I just always try to do commenced to finish! Katya did go but I did stay!
