hello,this is the info I have got from agency and I think I have the problem.and it seems to me I need your help because I must
get this flight .or I will miss the date of the beginning of my job and I will miss Merry Christmas and I hate to imagine if something goes wrong,I have done too much to lose all now.I know it sounds like I am pooroutsider
but you see I have not time or somebody to ask about help,you know my parents gave me all that our famile could collect for my travel.I hate to ask but now I don't have any other choice.
the things that everything is getting more exspensive because it is new year soon and so many people want to travel abroad,and they tell I need tohave round trip ticket,
I thought that I have to bye only one trip one.and next possible fight is only in a week and it will cost a little more yet,and I can't live here so long,
I have to pay for room,foods,and so on.and I can promise that I will return all the money I borrow as soon as I can.I will get salary and collect the sum I
own you ,it is only money ,and I think that itis not too hard for you to help me ,you see I have such chance only once in my life.I know you are kind man and I dohope you will be able to help me.
I was in the bank to try to ask them about credit buit they tell I have to have something to stay them and I have nothing to stay because I have only a few
dress and shoes,
some parfume and it is all I have,and small gift for you from russia with love.and I was so silly ,yestarday I bought nice night dress ,it is so exspencive here but I can't meet you
because it is a shame that it was on me ,I have never seen such wonderful things for women.
People in the bank gave me an advise that if I have good friend (I told them about my problems and you ) that you may send me money very fast,
they tell that there is the system western union and it works very fast,
I am not sure I know how it works but they tell you need only my name and address here in moscow and
I have to have only passport to get it in any bank of moscow.and nobody can get money only me,I think it is good way.
I have about 600$ yet and I need about 900$ from your side(roundtripticket,visa,interview and some papers yet) .After getting money
I will make all payment and onFriday I will have an interview,it is nesseary thing .
and I have good news too,they tell that I can stay in USA longer than three months I can stay about six months for first time.
I will have to change the date of my returning flight only.and I want to say that you have not to worry if you don',t like me or something in my charachter
I will not disturb you ,you know I will have rent room to live and it is only your wish to share your time with me,and money is money ,I will return it all
in any case.
sorry to send so dry and cold letter but I am getting crazy to think that you can just don't reply and I will stay here without any result of
all my hopes and dreams ,and hard work too.
you know my address here in moscow is Moscow,3670769,Kirova street,build 24,room 16.you know my full name is Buharina(last name)Uliya(first name).
you should put this info on their list and send me info that you sent it.

but dear please help me and you will be not sorry of it I promise.please don't leave me alone in hard minute I will pay the same when we meet.
And I will have paper with my and your names when I will be in your airport I don't want to miss you,and if you will be not able to meet me
I will call you and tell you where is me and where you can find me later.
Kiss you with hope Uli .
Has anyone else heard from her?
Her scam was that she was coming over on a J-1 Work visa and she mentioned a travel site, startravel.ru. She wanted to have a friend in the United States when she came over. Within 5 days she went from 'hello' to 'I love you'. All was well until she arrived in Moscow and then everything fell apart. Of course I refused to send her any money, instead pointing out to her that all J-1 Visa holders have sponsors whom are the ones to pay her expenses. She of course ignored my argument and, once she realized I wasn't going to fall for it, she ceased writing me.
