My honey , that's me again,
I don't know where to begin. It is hard to talk about it. When I went
to the travel agency to pay for my trip. I told you about it in my earlier
emails, about this big city getting me scared. There are so many people
here, everbody is running somewhere and I think they don't see anything
around them, they don't care for people who are next to them. I went to
the agency by the underground as this is the fastest and unexpensive method
to get from one place in this city to another one and this became a
nightmare for me. There was a lot of people, everyone was pushing
in the vagon. Disaster happened to me, while I was making my way down to
the agency. The thing is that I always put my money in wallet and I put my
wallet to my bag. I placed my bag over the sholder and I didn't feel it when
someone made a small hole in my bag with a razor and nicked my wallet with
the money. I know it might sound crazy, but when I came to the agency
and this is only 3-4 minutes away from the underground station I suddenly
realized that my bag was cut by the razor and my wallet was stolen with
all my money that I had to pay for a trip (1250 us dollars to be exact)
I didn't know what to do when I found out about my loss.
I wanted to scream and shout about this. I started to cry. The manager
in the agency tried to calm me down. The manager gave me some meds to
get me relaxed. I don't know what to do. This was all my money I was saving
so hard. If i could just help you to get me out of this trouble here in
this horrible city. I have no one to help me. I don't know anyone.
You're the only one I could ask for some help. You can possibly help me
out and I can borrow the money for the trip to you. I will pay you back
this when I come to you and get my job going. I have to pay for my trip
within the next 1 day before my interview as I have to show my flight
tickets and all the documents package to the people from the embassy.
They have to make sure that I am not planning to stay in your country
illegally and that I have my flight round trip ticket with an open date.
This is one of the rules about obtaining visa.
I have some money at my flat which I am renting here in Moscow.
I have $550 us dollars there which I left as my pocket money and wanted
to buy some presents for you with that money, but I guess I am going to
use that for my flight if you can help me out.
I've been told by the agency that you can use one of the international
agencies that deal with transfering money abroad - Western Union or MoneyGram.
This is one of the fastest ways to send money from all over the wolrd.
I went to the local bank and the manager at the bank explained to me
how these systems work.
All you need to do to send the money is my name, my surname (first name and last name)
and I will be able to get the money in any Western Union or MoneyGram
agency in all over the Moscow.
We need to make it pretty quick because we don't have much time as my interview
is only in few days and we got to do it before the interview.
If all is fine then I will be taking the flight which I gave you the info about
in my last letter!
I need 700 us dollars. Can you help me out with that amount of money?
If everything will be fine between us I will be able to stay with you for more
than 3 month, I can stay with you for up to 12 month during my first visit
to your country and then get an extension to my visa. All I need to do is to
book a date for my return date. Or I can come back earlier if something goes wrong
and we don't feel this chemistry between us.
A little more information about the Western Union or MoneyGram.
These are 2 different systems, but they works similar. You can choose any.
You can find any local Western Union or MoneyGram agent in your area. You need
to find it and go there to send the money under my name.
You will be asked for my full name and surname, my address in Moscow where
I am currently staying.
Here is all the info you need to know to make a transfer:
My address here in Moscow where I am renting my flat
address: Palkona street 41 flat # 54
postal code: 210309
full name: Natalia Sokolowa (i hope i spelled it correctly)
As soon as you provide them with this info they will be able to initiate the
transfer and I will be able to get this money in just 10 minutes in Moscow.
But I need to know Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN) that the agent
will give you in order to pick up this money. I will also need to know
your name (first name, last name) as you given it to agent for the transfer and
the location of the Western Union/MoneyGram money was sent from.
They agent here in Moscow will ask for this information.
I am really not comfortable sending you a letter like that. My head is spinning
round, I still hardly believe in what happened to me.
I wait for your letter badly. I don't know what to do if you can't help me.
I am really scared. We are so close to each other as we've never been and all is
ruined by this incident.
I appologize for getting you through all this, but I really have no other options
You're the only hope.
I hope you won't be dissapointed when you meet me. Bye bye!
Actually, Natalia is doing real good. Goes by the name Natalia Sokolowa these days, still using the same photos though. You have to admit, she has gumption. She still uses the firstname.lastname@example.org email. I have found it funny.
Look out for hnow
