Good day, Chuck!
It's me Kate. I have to apologize for not writing so long, but it was a
crazy hectic week, and finally it is over!
How have you been? I guess when someone close in your area you tend to
be more open in sharing about yourself because
the possibility of meeting seems to be welcoming but I want you to know
I'm not close. Even I'm not in united states,
I'm a girl from russia and I've the reason to like to get to know you.
I want you to know that I'm common girl and
I don't like secrecy and other things like urgency or cant. I want you
to know what is the reason of my reply is. All
my life I live in Russia and I never be outside of and this is the
first reason. I learned in several foundations like
school ,college, university and I have professional medical education,
my speciality is an cardiologist and I've all
certificates and patents for this kind of activity. Do you know, Chuck
how much cardiologist earn in Russia? Sometimes
about less than ten thousand or roubles and it's about less than three
hundreds and seventy american dollars because one
dollar is just about twenty five roubles. It's not so very bad here but
I know that other people earn much more because
they have job outside of our country. This is the second reason but I
have third and it's not less important than previous
two reasons. I havn't any boyfriend at this time, I hadn't husband or
serious relationship before because I learned and
wanted to be professional medic, now it's time for my job and making
family but I don't want to have job here in russia.
I want to have it in united states because the salary is much bigger
and the country is more better and I will have it
very soon because I have the license and my request is in progress. I
have the contract already. Hope you understand that
I will live in united states and I could choose the place where to live
because there are many places where I could work.
I want to find friends in united states so this is the reason of my
email to you. Can I be friend for you? Are you interested
in knowing me? Now little more about me. I enjoy going to movies,
beach, parks and other places. I feel I am definitely an
easy-going, fun, romantic, open-minded, honest, sincere, and loyal girl
also. I hate drama and dishonesty. I wanna go slow
and take our time and feel assured that the two of us have made the
best choice also. Write me back tell what you feel and
if you do wanna still connect with me I think we should talk. I'm
really glad we managed to match each other. So on average
what do you do to pass your free time? I'd love to hear about hobbies
of any kind that really capture your interest. Once
again I want to tell you that I will come to united states after few
weeks or month so we can be friends and maybe meet in
future who knows. As I told you before Kate is my real name in English
spelling, you can call me Kate or Katya (in Russian).
I've attached a new picture for you, Chuck! I hope you will like it!
Waiting for your reply asap, Kate (Katya).
P.S. If you are not interested in knowing me, please let me know, ok?
How are you today? Please tell me do you want to exchange emails often?
Everyday? I could email
you everyday and tell you more about me. I hope you will tell me about
your life and your
country also so I want to tell you that if you will write me short
notes or few words I want
to forestall you that I will appraise your short email as you do not
interested. Please be
honest with me, please be open and if you feel that you don't want to
email me and you are not
interested please tell me this thing in this minute when you think
about it, ok? I will not take
displeasure because it's your choice but I will be very glad if we will
continue our talking.
I hope your emails will tell me about your life and it will not be
short. I want you to know that
I hate a lie or an affectation so please no any games or tricks because
I'm really serious girl
and I'm not looking for senseless chatting, I'm medic and I'm really
want to find friend or more
because I will come in your country. I know that there are many bad
people in this world especially
in internet because they believe in their impunity because nobody can't
see them. I know that there
are many spam and autoemailers in internet so I'm careful. I believe
you know about this things. I'm
real girl and believe you are real as well and your emails to me will
not consist of few words. I've
read that there are many criminal persons in internet also, they thieve
money, asking for help, sell
fakes. I've read in newspaper about this things. The governments of
many countries catch this kind of
people and put them in jail. I really can't understand why people can't
work and earn good money in
this world. I hope I will because I'm going to work in country where my
speciality valued more than
here in russia. I told you that I will come for living and working in
my previous email. I know that
the people usually live in city or in the country. It's interesting to
live in the city but living in
the country is more peaceful, so I don't know where is better in your
country, please tell me? I will
have all papers for it because my education is over and I decided to
build my future in good country
with good wages. What do you think about it? I have selection for
coming in united states or canada,
I have selection in states also. I don't know where I will work but I
can choose it. The salary will
be approximately the same so I don't know where to come. If we will be
more close in future maybe
I could come in your city or near your city and we could have
possibility to meet, who knows but I guess
it's real thing. I don't know anyone from your country and I havn't
anyone from my family there so your
advises will be very actual for me. I don't know where I will live but
I'm sure I will decide. I don't
know the date of my trip now because I'm waiting for papers. I will get
the visa and many other papers
soon and I guess my trip will be after few weeks. It will be great!
There are many employers for good
specialists in your country and there are many companies which allow to
live and work in your country.
It's the business and the ability for good living for people all over
the world. I'm professional
cardiologist and I will use this chance because I want to live. I know
that many people all over the
world take this way so I will also. So I can live in the place where
employers can give me my work. And
there are many places in your country. I will choose the place after
few weeks and will come for living
and working. Now I want to tell you more about me. I'm 27 years old and
my birthday is 9 December, so
I will be 28 in this year. My height is 167 centimetres it's about 5'6'
and my weight is 55 kilograms
it's about 121 pounds. My father dead 4 years ago because of cancer,
his name was Oleg (my middle name is Olegovna)
and he was 53. My mother's name is Elena and she is 56. She support me
in my choice and she is very good woman!
I love my mother. I loved my father. I do believe in God. I'm
Christian, russian orthodox. I have no brothers
and sisters, I'm the only child in our family. I love pets especially
dogs and cats. I like many colours but the
blue as sky is my favorite. When I have free time I like to listen to
music like eurodance, pop, rock and many
other kinds because I'm sure there are many great music in different
styles. I have a hobbie also, it's playing
in tennis. Do you know Maria Sharapova? She is a russian player and she
plays tennis very well. So I play in free
time either. Do you know this game? It's my favourite sport also. I
like to watch movies and the last I saw 'Die hard 4'.
Bruce Willis is the main hero and I like this actor very much. What is
your favourite movie and actor/actress? I hope
you can understand now that I'm a simple girl, a girl who like the warm
weather and warm relations. I had one love in
my life but it was not mutual so it's not started like relations. I
have never been married but I hope that it will
happen in the future. I don't like russian men alot because they are
lazy and drink alot. I do not drink and smoke,
I lead healthy style of life. I hope you like my email and I hope you
will write me about your life and your thoughts.
I will wait for your reply, Chuck.
Hopefully your new friend Katya.
How is your day? Lately I watched a TV and there was a programme about
Halloween. I wonder, do you have the
holiday which is the most sweet? My favorite holiday is New Year and my
birthday. Ok, enough about it.
Did you Chuck ever heard about working between countries for exchange?
People from one country work or study
in other country and people from other country work or study in first
country. This is program which allow to
work and live in country what you want but the education (for working)
or direction of education (for studying)
required. As I told you I will come to north america (united states or
canada) for living and working. I'm an
cardiologist and I prepare for examination for having job outside my
country. There is an agencies in different
countries all over the world which work with different agencies in
other countries. So agency from my country
make all papers for my job and when I'll complete all tests and exam I
will come to place in north america. I
will choose the place in agency and will work and live there because
employers will give me the financial support
provided to the needy and I could live. The exam will be soon and they
told me that I will come because many people
all over the world do this things and I'm the very good specialist in
my speciality. Now I will finish my work in
russia and prepare for coming. I guess it will be after 2-3 weeks when
I complete all procedures and get all papers
for coming. I heard that americans are good people but I know that
there are many bad or good persons in any type
of nationality and country. I guess that you are a good guy and I will
be very glad to know you better, hope you
are too! Now I want to tell you Chuck a little more about me and my
life. As I told you I live in Tara city and
I was born here also. It's a small town in the Russian province. I live
with mother because she is alone and my
father passed away as I told you already in my previous email. I have a
grandmother also and she is 79. She lives
not too far from me and my mother. Her name is Lubov, do you know the
meaning of russian word 'lubov'? It's 'love'.
Hope I could teach you some russian in the future if you want of
course. I like to cook when I'm at home and I can
cook many dishes and I hope one day you could taste my borsch (eastern
european soup containing beets and cabbage
and other ingredients) or my pilaf (middle eastern dish made from
seasoned rice with meat or fish). I want to tell
you why I decided to become an cardiologist. When I was young and
learned in school all pupils think about profession
when they finished school, college, university. I decided to become a
doctor but when I finished the school I still
wanted to be a doctor but there are many professions in medical
direction, so I decided to be an cardiologist because
the mother of my girlfriend is an cardiologist also and she said that
this kind of speciality is very perspective and
a good cardiologist could earn much money, could earn more if job will
be in developed countries and this speciality
is very helpful for people all over the world. So I decided to become
an cardiologist and I'm sure it's the right choice.
I could do any type of an cardiologist's work and it's very important
because I have the possibility to work in any place
and even in europe or north america. I will finish my work after 2
weeks because I will have the examination before my coming.
After examination I will buy the ticket to New York for coming to the
agency which will give me the job. It will be the place
where I will choose the place to work. I'm sure it will be soon. Maybe
I could meet you? It will be great! You know, Chuck
I'm not very good in computer and I have never used the messenger
program before, do you know how to use it? If you have any
questions please feel free to ask, ok?
Your Russian friend Katya
P.S. I've attached a pic from this summer for you, Chuck! I hope you'll
I will be very glad if we could email often to each other, what do you
think? I understand that writing email takes
time but I'm sure it takes more time for me because my native language
is russian and I'm sorry if there are many
mistakes in my english. I told you Chuck that I will have exam before
my coming and I don't know which place to choose.
Can you tell me your address? If I will know your address I will ask
about possibility for coming close to your
location so I could work and live not far from you maybe in the same
state or even city. What do you think about it?
I hope you understand that I must come in New York city first because
there is main office where I will choose the
job place. I don't know the places in your country so I don't know
where to live and work and I've asked about places
where is the best income but they told me that there is no difference
because salary is the same in different places
it's the rule of contract for workers who come from other countries. I
hope you understand. So how is your day? Are
you interested in meeting me in real life or all this just for virtual
chatting, exchange emails? What do you think
about ability for my coming in your state, city? Chuck, I hope you
understand that it's serious question for me and
if you will give your answer about it I will be very glad but please be
honest because I'm honest and I want to tell you
again that I'm interested in knowing and meeting you Chuck! Really! I
feel that you're good guy, but I'm not sure what
is your intent? I want you to know that I will come for working and
living in any case and I don't know about how long time
I will work and live before I get the citizenship and other things but
I will not return back in russia if I will
not want it because the government of other countries are interested in
people who have good education and who could
work for prosperity of country. So I want to live and work for a long
time. There are many peculiarities I like in
man, it's a self-sufficiency, loyalty, intelligence, mannerliness,
generosity, honesty, solicitude. I like when the
man is kind, cheerful, attentive. I love the life and health, I love
children but I havn't any. I think that children
are our future and I remember myself as child and I'm always like a
child in my heart. Hope you're too! How's the
weather today? Today is cold wind and I feel that the warm days will
leave my city very soon. Today I have many deeds
for my preparation for exam and coming but everything is good and I
hope I will do it and I hope the result will be
worthy also. I will wait for your email and I will wait your answers to
P.S. Did you ever hear about winter in Russia? It's very cold!
Sometimes we have about -30 Celsius. Just a curious
is winter in your country such cold as our? I hear that you have more
warm weather in America. Oh, why I asked you
about winter? I just attached picture of me from last winter. I'm sorry
that I sent you only pics of my face. I will
try to find some pictures with body for next time. Ok?
How have you been there? I hope that all is well with you and this
letter will find you in a good mood! How is the weather there?
I hope not bad either! We have a little cold weather here but it's a
normal temperature for this period. Well I have to admit I'm a little
bit worried Chuck. I don't know if you received all my letters and if I
got all of yours. Please look into your spam folder and
maybe you'll find there letters from me or review my previous letters.
I've got a call today from my agency and they told me that I'll have
the test which will confirm my skill in the cardiology by next week.
You know I'm a little bit nervous. If I'll pass this test I'll have an
international license in cardiology! I'll be able to practice all
over the world! Chuck, I want to make things clear and let you know
that as soon as I come to New York I'll sign the contract which
will guarantee my employment for two years. Also I'll have the chance
to make a choice the place (city) to work in. I will stay in New York
for a couple of days and then I'll move out to the city I'll choose. In
fact I want to stay in the New World and never come back to Russia.
I'd like to get a citizenship in the future. Who knows how everything
will turn out? As for the family I think it is also very important for
me. If I ever will get married I'd like to continue my work, but I like
to cook and clean the house in the free time. I want you to know that
I have never used a translator programme to write letters to you. So
you can see how good my English is. I write and talk English alike.
Will my English be enough to talk easily in America?
As you know my birthday will be by December 9 which makes me
Sagittarius. Sagittarius is my astrological sign. What is yours? Do you actually
believe in astrology? I'm a little bit interested in it. Are you?
Chuck, I want to ask you if you ever crossed your country from ocean to
the ocean. As for me I like to travel very much! In fact I have been in
many places in Russia. Since I'm coming soon to America I've got a
dream: to cross America form cost to cost on the car or even on the
bike! I have never ridden a bike and really want to try it! You maybe
think that I'm crazy, but if you would ask what I'd like to see in
America mostly I'll say America itself! Please do not think that it's a
crazy idea, I really like to get to know America from the inside.
Oh, almost forgot, I've just figured out that my phone cannot make an
international calls. I can call to the phones if they installed in our
only. I know it might sounds absurdly, but it is so. I'll try to figure
out if I can call from the phone station. I think it will work. Also
tried to install the Yahoo messenger onto my computer at work, but it
does not work. I'll go tomorrow to talk with the system administrator
was the problem. Hopefully he will help me to understand what went
Ok, I have to go now. I hope to see your reply soon and your thoughts
on what I've written. Tomorrow I will have some free time from my work
and will write you more.
P.S. Sorry, I did not attach a picture today. but I'll do it tomorrow.
We have good weather today: the sun is shining, no wind.
Well I think I figured out what is going on with the letter
sending/receiving. Indeed I have troubles
with getting letters from you. It looks like I'm getting all of your
letters but it seems that the
letters and pictures are delaying for a day or two. Also I think that
this situation is already become
normal. So, please, do not be confused if I did not answer to some of
your questions immediately,
I'll answer them for sure later.
Chuck, I want to ask you to find out one thing: How much does it cost
to rent an apartment in your town?
Please let me know ok? I was told that I'll have to rent an apartment
on my own. Fortunately I was told
that my agency in NYC will give an advance for the first time which
I'll have to repay them in 6 months.
They said that this money will be to pay the rent. So, Chuck, if it's
not so difficult, please find out
it for me.
You maybe wonder if I had a boyfriend before. I think that you have a
right to know about it. Indeed there
was a man in my life. In fact, it is not a very interesting story and
it ended badly. We are not even friends
for now. He started to drink alcohol daily and he was very rude with my
in the last period of our relationship.
I might tell you about it later.
Chuck, finally I found out why I had no success with the Yahoo
messenger. Turned up that the our internet
line is dial up and the internet speed is very slow. Over and above our
system administrator told me that
my computer is behind the firewall, so I can't use messenger. That's
bad, but I'll try to find a way to a
use messenger anyway.
I'll continue to prepare for the test during this week, so if you'll
didn't get a letter
from me - do not worry. It means that I'm studying and didn't forget
about you Chuck. I hope you
will wish me luck on my test.
I want you to know that I went today to my agency and asked them if
they can find a work for me in your
town or even though in your area. They said that they are not sure for
now but it seems to be possible!
I was very happy to hear that. It will be a great thing for me to have
a familiar in foreign country
that can help me to settle down. I'll appreciate if you will tell me
about the life in your country,
about yours traditions and customs. I do not want to look like a
As you know I like hiking and camping. Sometimes I go with my friends
to raft on a canoe. Did you try it?
Very fun! You know I have friend who persuades me to jump out of an
airplane! I'm not ready for this right
now, but maybe someday soon I'll venture. Please do not think that I
spend all my time for sport. I like
to go to the cinema, to the theatre, arts. I like to listen to the
music (very different) and to read books.
I like many things in different periods of my life as the other people
Well I have to quit here. Till then Chuck.
Your friend Katya

I dont understand what she/he must be getting outta it!!

Same emails. I've received 13 so far. I've replied a couple of times with just random text from wikipedia and just now replied to a couple of them asking specific questions, etc. Waiting to see how far the rabbit hole goes. Adding a picture I received from Kate.

anonymous from United States
I have been sending emails back and forth with 'KATYA' I looked up the email address after the first couple of emails, and saw it was a hoax. But kept going to play along. No 'She' has gotten into a car accident and has to get car fixed other car fixed involved in accident and pay for tickets and 'documents' to get to America to see 'me', also the 'LOVE' word was used by her for the 1st time. Funny.
