Hi Michael!

How are you today? How is the weather there? I hope everything is ok!
I'm feeling well. I feel myself completely recovered. I want to thank
my friends. They helped to overcome the illness. My friends visited
me yesterday and I was very glad to see them. We did prepare chicken
fry with potatoes. It was delicious. They actually didn't stay till
late, because of my illness. All in all it was a very pleasant evening.

By the way they granted me some flowers. It was sky blue peonies. As
I wrote you before these are my favourite flowers and my favourite
colour. You should remember that Michael.
I talked to my agent and she told me that all of my papers are ready.
My visa is ready too and it is waiting for me in the main office of
my agency in Moscow. I'll fly out from Moscow and I'll pick up my visit

from my agency en route to the airport. I also talked with her about
the job they found for me. My agent said that I'll have a different
salary from one year to another. My salary for the first year will be
$40 000 USD, and $50 000 USD for the second year. Next 3 year salary
could be raised more, maybe it will not happened, but it will not down
under $50 000 USD. It's for sure. Michael, can you tell me if this
amount of money will be enough for me to live in your area? Let me
know.
I think I will be able to afford a place of my own right away (I mean a

rent), but I'm not sure if I will be able to afford a car. Should I buy

a used car or I can expect that I can buy a new one? What do you think?

What are the prices for the used cars and for the new cars?
I was told that I'll get an advance as soon as I come to NYC. It will
be $5000 USD, which I'll have to return in six months. I believe that
it
is not a great amount of money, so I'll be very careful with them. I'm
going to reserve a ticket by Thursday or by Friday, not sure right now.

I wanted to make it tomorrow but I've got some affairs which I have to
finish right away. I'll let you know my flight schedule soon.
I watched a TV set lately and there was a programme about the NASCAR
racing championship.
I see it's a very popular sport event in the states. I find it
interesting
too. I'd like to visit the race sometime. Is it possible? Is it
expensive?
I want to give you my address just in case. Here it is:
Country: Russia
Region: Komi region
Town: Lach
Lermontova street, building # 7, apt. # 10
But, please, do not send anything through regular mail. I want you to
know that our mail service is very bad. It is very slow and the cards
or packages could be lost or even stolen! There a lot such incidents
here.
That is why I want to warn you from sending anything through our mail
service. I gave you my address to show you that I trust you enough
Michael.
I want you to know that I started to feel some kind of affection
towards
you Michael. I miss you letters when I have no possibility to check my
mailbox and to read them. It is very strange. I do not know how to
explain
it. Well, it is late and I have to quit here. I've attached a picture
for
you. The quality is not very good, but I hope you will like it. I'll
try
to prepare a new picture for you tomorrow.
I'll wait for your reply Michael!
Your Russian friend Anna


Hi my faraway friend Michael!
It is 4:00 pm in Lach, Thursday. We've got a thaw today and the snow
has melted away. Everything has become gray and gloomy. My mood is on
the zero. In fact, I've got a flue or something like this. I feel
myself terrible. I think I have to see my doctor today. That is why
I'll be short today, ok? I hope you are well Michael and didn't get
sick. It's a horrible feeling.
I talked to my agent today and she said that I have to reserve a ticket

by next week. She said that my visa and other documents will be ready
in a week, so I can start to pack my baggage! I was also told that I'll

have to spend 2 or 3 days in NYC before I'll head to my place of
working.
It will be needed to arrange some formalities and to sign a contract
with the employer. My agent said that I'll be met in the airport. Those

people will help me to reach the office in NYC. All in all I think I'll

come to NYC in a 2 week. It is really close from now. I'm getting
exciting
and nervous at the same time. I so used to have my mother somewhere
close
to me, that it will be very difficult for me to leave her here in Lach.

I'll try to take her to America in the future when I'll get a
citizenship.
I'll think how to arrange it.
Michael, I wonder what places I should visit in America. I've heard of
Niagara Falls, Las Vegas and Hollywood. Maybe there is something else?
Let me know. I very like to travel and to see new places.
I can't remember if I ever asked you about your horoscope's sign. As I
wrote you before I was born 23.12.1978 which makes me Capricorn. Do you

actually believe in horoscope? As for me I do. I find it fun.
I went today to our local connection center and asked if there is any
way you could call me from overseas. I want you to know that I have a
phone but it has a local number only. It means that I can make
calls/receive
calls if they are local only. Do you understand it? I hope. So I think
if
I'll call you when I come to NYC it will be ok.
Michael, from each letter I feel that I'm getting closer to you. Do you
feel
the same? I feel some kind of connection. I can't explain it right now,

but I like it.
I've attached a new pic of me today. It was taken a year ago by my
friend
Katerina, as usual. She is my best friend. She is feeling well after
her
car accident by the way.
Well, my doctor is waiting for me. I have to go. I hope that I'll feel
much
better tomorrow!
Be healthy!
Your Russian friend Anna


Hello my friend Michael!
I am very happy to see that you wrote me! I was not able to check my
mailbox during the weekend, and I must admit I started to miss you
letters.
Indeed I'm feeling much better today. It was a terrible weekend for me.

My doctor said that I have to stay at home and do not leave my bed. I
had
a high temperature and a cough. I'm still feeling myself ill but much
better than during the weekend. I feel that I'm recovering Michael.
A medicine became quite expensive here since the USSR did fall to
pieces.
I remember the times when everything was for free. It sounds like a
fairy
tale now. I have to pay 500 rubles ($20 USD) every time when I see my
doctor.
I'm not sure if it is too many for America, but it is quite expensive
for
Russia. I wonder how much does it cost to see a doctor in America. Let
me
know.
Michael, I want to ask you could you find out what the average
designer's
salary in America is. It is very interesting for me to know, especially
in
your area.
As I wrote you before I was going to reserve a ticket by this week. I
hope
that I'll it by Wednesday or Thursday. As soon as I reserve a ticket
I'll
let you know the exact date of my coming! I also will have to pay some
money
to my agency; because they helped me to find a place to work and helped
with
the papers. I'm very nervous about my coming to America. I think that I

caught flu because of my agitated condition. It is so good to have
friends
which could hold you on in a hard time. Some of my friends will visit
me today
in the evening. They will help me to clean up my apartment and will
help me
to cook my favourite dish - chicken fry with potatoes. I'm very good at
cooking
and maybe someday soon you'll check it out! I like flowers very much
and I
hope that some of friends will tumble to bring me some flowers. I like
roses,
asters and peonies. Do you ever heard of peonies? I bet you do not, but
it is
a very popular flower here in Russia.
Did I ever tell you my last name Michael? I guess I never did. Well, my
last
name is Sotova.
My full name is Anna Petrovna Sotova. So you know now.
Michael, I think we could be a good match. I do not want to push you
and I'm
not in a rush either. Please get me right. I have to say that I
definitely want
to meet you face to face, to talk to you one on one. Only time will
tell if we
are a match, but I'm happy that I have a friend like you are Michael.
I'll stop here. I feel myself tired a little bit, I need some rest.
I'll write
to you tomorrow and will send you a new pic.
Your Russian friend Anna


Hi Michael!
How are you? How is the weather there today? I hope that much better
than here
in Lach. We've got a first snow this morning! It was really beautiful!
Everything
was white. I've got up very early today and what I've seen I could name
'The white
noiselessness'.
I went to my agency this morning and I was told that they could suggest
me some
job's options in your area. That's real great! So I can definitely say
that I'll
come to your area. I don't know how close I'll work/live to you, but I
think it
will not be a problem, right?! I can not say the names of the companies
and if they
have web-sites right now. But I can say that I really wonder myself. My
agent told me that
she couldn't advise what company to choose. She said that I can make my
choice at
New York office. There are some people there who can advise me what
company to choose.
I consider that it is reasonable and I think that I should make my
choice in the
States. Michael, do you know what will be the first thing I'll do when
I come to
NYC? I'm going to call you! I want to hear your voice very much
Michael. I'm still
looking for a chance to call you from Lach but it appears quite
complicated and
expensive. I hope you understand it Michael, and will not be upset.
I don't remember if I ever told you about my town. Maybe it will be
interesting for
you. The name of my town is Lach. It's a small town and the closest big
city is Ukhta.
The population of my town is about 25 thousands of people. My town is
located in Komi
region; it is not far from Siberia so the weather is very rigid here
too. Lach is a
very green town in the summer and very white in the winter! Every
winter we get a lot
of snow. There are some cinemas in Lach, we even have a theatre. The
streets here are
narrow, but it creates some kind of cosiness. I like it. I love my
town, but it's time
for me to leave it. Maybe I'll back someday, who knows. I think the
hardest thing for
me will be to part with my friends and relatives. I used to spend a lot
of free time
with them, I'll miss them. I'll also miss for my apartment. It is
actually not big (It
consists of 2 rooms), but very cozy. My apartment consists of bathroom,
dining room,
hall, lobby and bedroom. I wanted to make a new design for it but it is
not actual for
me now. What can you tell about your surroundings Michael? I'd like
to know.
I must admit that sometimes I feel myself really confused because many
of the questions
you asked I already answered in my previous letters. I don't know how
to check it but
I'm wondering if you received all of my letters. It is a strange
situation. Maybe some
letters didn't get to your mailbox right away? I do not know why that
is.
I've attached a new pic for you today. My friend Katerina did shoot me
last spring. You
probably admitted that I look different in my photos?! I actually like
to look different.
In fact, I'm not a natural blonde. I like to colour my hair. I hope
it's not an issue
for you Michael? I tried some colours but I think that the blonde hair
is the best choice
for me. Don't you think so?
Ok, it's getting late here. I have to close now. I'll write you
tomorrow Michael. It is
so good that I have so much free time this week so I can write you
everyday. I hope you
don't mind that I write so often.
Your Russian friend Anna

It looks like the person is spending a lot time to write this. I still can't figure out what he/she is expecting but there has been no mention about money or visa. This person seems to be very genuinely interested in meeting people from US. I have replied to most of them and the person doesn't seem to read them.
Here is the one I received today. Guess I am in the forefront and has been receiving most of the updates.

Hello my friend Rin!

How are you? I hope not bad! It's just a quick note for you. I spent
all day in the
hospital and prayed God to help my mother. The surgery has been lasted
for 4 hours
and it ended well! Indeed, it's good news! I didn't see my mother but
her doctor said
that she is ok but she is reduced in strength. He said that she will
get well fast!
I was so nervous before the surgery and now I'm so happy that
everything ended well.
Rin, I feel myself tired and exhausted I need to go to the bed. I'm
terrible sorry
if I didn't answer to your questions today, but I promise I'll answer
them tomorrow
for sure. I hope you understand my condition today. Well I'll quit here
Rin. I'll
write you tomorrow and will let you know the approximate date of my
coming!
Till tomorrow Rin!
With Deep Affection for You!
Your Russian friend

Here is the latest, what is interesting is that she talks about our feelings for each other and she signs off as my g/f. I bet when she gets that doctors bill is when the money requests start, I mean she is my Russian g/f now!

Hello my friend G__!

How are you there my friend? How are your folks and friends? I hope that everything is well there!
I'm just fine. The weather here is going to get better. And it fills me with the energy and hope.
I visited my mother in the hospital this morning and found her in a good condition and mood. I talked
with her for a few time and then I had a conversation with her doctor. He said that she is feeling
well and her condition is stable. He also said that if everything will be ok she will be released
from the hospital within a week! I was very glad to hear such good news. Since my aunt Elena has come
here she will help me to take care of my mother now and then when I'll leave to come to NYC. I think
I'll reserve a flight on Novemeber 23 previously. It's an approximate date and it can change depends
on my mom's condition. I actually think that my mother will be released by next week already and my
aunt Elena will take care of her. My mother's doctor said that the hospital will bill us by Monday.
He said that since my mom does not have a medical insurance the bill will be pretty great. That's no
good, but I think I'll be able to afford it. I'm sure that I have to help to pay my mother's bill
since she is a pensioner. As you know pensioners here are very poor people and my mother can't afford
it herself.
G__, every time when I see your message in my mailbox I can't stop smiling. You brighten my days,
G__! I maybe never told you that I find you attractive, but it is so! I want to ask you to do not judge
me too strictly if I didn't answer some of your questions, it was a very hectic, nervous time and I
could miss something. I hope you understand.
By the way my friend Katerina told me to say Hi to you! I saw her lately and told her about you. I must
admit she was pretty surprised that we grow into such feelings towards each other. She said that maybe
someday she will follow me in finding the place for work. Who knows, but she has to learn English first
of all, she speaks very badly.
G__, I've prepared a new picture for you! As I promised I send you the pic of me and Katerina together.
The pic was taken a year ago in New Year eve. I hope you like this pic.
Well I have to go. Till tomorrow G__!
With Deep Affection towards You!

Rudolf ...2007-11-05, 13:47:02 (et al) ...what a frigging Sherlock Holmes you are.

Tell me now, I post in plain English, is it too much trouble to f***ing read what I post? The day after you post your own amazing revelations, a sort of half-assed version of the info I posted the day before.

Whatever...I'll repost in the hope that it sinks in:

Welcome to any newcomers who find this thread via Google etc, and ....
PLEASE READ THIS!

SOME GENERAL INFO ABOUT RUSSIAN GIRLS AND RUSSIAN DATING SCAMMERS:

The vast majority of Russian dating scammers are men, mostly working in small gangs in or around Yoshkar Ola, in Mari El republic, sometimes Chuvashia. It's virtually guaranteed that the girls in these scam pics aren't involved because the scammers steal their pics from the internet or pay unsuspecting friends for them, or buy and exchange them on scammer websites. (Once a scammer even admitted to me that he stole his pics from army-of-brides.com and mamba.ru ).

Most scammers are VERY lazy and looking for quick cash. They use email extractor programs to get your mail addresses, and copied form mails and spam programs on automatic reply, very often the BAT!, which can personalize small parts of each letter. They mostly won't read your letters until after the money letter because they don't have time, ie because they're scamming, or trying to scam, as many guys as they can (economies of scale).....and also because they're semi-literate losers who can't speak much English anyway.

IN OTHER WORDS, you can write any crap in your replies and they won't react, they're only interested when they're curious to know if you've taken the bait. Furthermore, the majority of Russian scammers nowadays use proxy servers or forged IPs to hide their locations. A girl is only involved either occasionally to phone a guy up, especially if he's suspicious, or to pick up the loot at Western Union, with a false ID of course!

If, by any chance, you don't believe me, read this: http://www.cheboksa..mers.html

So....if several or more of the following criteria apply to your Boris (the beautiful Russian 'girl' that is supposedly writing to you), resist the temptation to help 'the poor girl' by sending her money. You're really writing to a sleazy guy sitting in a smoky room in Yoshkar Ola, with a bunch of other sleazy guys spamming indiscriminately on laptops .

# 'girl' writes to you first on a dating site...especially a free one (or an email appears out of nowhere in your mailbox). Real Russian girls are rarely so bold as to write to you first. (unless you're obviously very attractive or rich :))) They will often reply to your mails, but rarely take the initiative. It's the man who does the chasing in Russia. Plus if they're looking for a partner, they generally prefer him to be Russian speaking and live in Russia. Much more convenient!
# girl's much too young for you (or too good to be true/looks like a model/porno star)....although I have noticed a recent tendency for some scammers to use photos of slightly 'less attractive' girls as well.
# girl has some far-fetched excuses for you not visiting her in Russia (criminal city, not the Russian custom, terrorism, it's her dream to come to your country, etc). ALL BULLSHIT!! Actually, the normal way to meet a Russian girl is to visit her in her city first.
# scammers rarely have children, but most of the real Russian women I've ever met on the internet did (except for Moscow career girls). It's often the reason that they're looking for a partner.
# photos are too revealing (can't be a respectable girl). Respectability is very important to most Russian women (especially Moscow career girls). They're hardly likely to send a half-naked photo to a virtual stranger on the internet. Think with your brain!
# most of the pics are old and a little bit faded with a curiously grainy quality that soon becomes quite easy to recognise (overuse?). Again a scammer admitted to me that low-quality photos are a key factor in his scamming. I found this strange because a serious girl who's looking for a partner usually saves up and goes to a professional to have a studio set done (often corny ones posing with a chair etc), and/or borrows a digicam at least (dates should also be on the photos you receive). My fiancée did it. Russian girls aren't all that poor anymore, and if they seriously want to leave Russia, they know that posting cheap pics will only attract cheap guys.
# GIRL CLAIMS NOT TO HAVE A MOBILE PHONE. Very unlikely!!! fer f***'s sake.....do you know a single girl without a mobile phone? Even poor Russian girls can't do without one, they're much cheaper than in Europe and a Megafon telephone card doesn't cost that much either. You should be able to call her whenever you want. On the other hand, not having a landline or a desktop/laptop is very common.
# very long rambling/ecstatic form letters with a strange format, punctation and layout written in scamlish. (world's worst Babelfish copy)
# writes long letters everyday in English. How does she have time to write those long letters if she's working? And if she doesn't have a job, how can she afford a computer + internet? Even Internet cafés are relatively expensive in Russia. Anyway, most Russians outside Moscow can hardly speak a word of English. What's the point of finding a girl you can't communicate with, at least on a basic level? PLUS.. if she can't speak English, why does she have a non-cyrillic email account like gmail or yahoo? Most real Russians use mail.ru, yandex.ru or inbox.ru....though hotmail and yahoo are acceptable if she'll chat with you on messenger (preferably with a webcam).
# doesn't answer direct questions (sometimes factual mistakes in the letter). Her replies should be exactly that...replies...however short they are.
# falls in 'love' very quickly. Don't let your ego, loneliness or lust pull the wool over your eyes. She doesn't know you. You could be an axe murderer for all she knows. Russian TV is full of documentaries about Russian girls who have emigrated and got murdered, abandoned, etcetc.
# uses a proxy server to hide his/her location, ie a SOCKS server / GPRS Internet. if you can't trace 'her' IP, it's 100% scam. THE FIRST THING YOU SHOULD DO IS TRACE HER IP ADDRESS. In fact, it's the only thing you need to do really..

MOST IMPORTANT...if you get this far:
# she asks for money for a tourist 'visa' and/or maybe tickets, ignoring the fact that IT'S VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SINGLE RUSSIAN GIRL TO GET A TOURIST VISA TO A WESTERN COUNTRY!

She can get a SPONSORED visa with your help, but then she needs a personal letter of invitation from you, a copy of your passport, a proof of your residence in your home country, a completed sponsor's application form (also from you)....not including the documents that she has to fill in herself. She also needs a job in her country and a letter from her employer. All of these documents she has to drop off at your national embassy in Moscow WITH PREPAID TICKETS and wait about 10 working days. These are the rules for the Schengen countries...the USA and Canada are almost as, if not more, complicated. Anyway, a normal TOURIST visa + travel costs + hotel rooms would set her back 2000+ US dollars for a trip to the US. She should be asking you for a lot of money! Immigration would consider her an overstay risk and never let her in without credit. Why should it be so easy for a gorgeous sexy girl just to jump on a plane and fall into bed with you? Furthermore, no respectable Russian girl would ask directly for money, but might accept some if you insisted.

NB...you should check your national embassy website in Moscow for visa prices and procedures.

There are a few scammers that are more patient and professional, who will take months before they scam you for money (though if you follow my tips, you should be able to spot them anyway). There are even a few real girls scamming, and professional gold-diggers (mostly in the Ukraine). One or two of them are very bold, and not even afraid to use their true identities. These scammers are harder to spot, and there is no easy way to identify them, all you can do is use your instincts and common sense, and DO YOUR HOMEWORK!

But a ground rule is: if you are looking for a Russian wife/partner, you must be prepared to travel to Russia to meet her. You also need to behave generously towards her; after all, you need to prove that you can support here (and her kids) if she migrates to your country. But if she turns out to be a professional gold-digger, which has never happened to me personally or anyone I know (but I know it does happen), you should try to be philosophical and treat it as an exotic trip to a foreign country, have fun anyway, and try not to waste too much money on her.

There are actually hundreds of perfectly nice Russian girls in Russia but you have to be prepared to go and get them. Chercher la femme. It worked for me.

How are you doing today Gil! Not bad I hope! I'm well. Today I feel
myself much better than yesterday. There were a lot of emotions
yesterday,
but today I did calm down. The situation with my mom is not as awful as

it can be. Her doctor said that 99 from 100 of patients recover if the
illness
was detected in such early stage. That's good. But anyway, the doctor
said
that it will require a surgery. As I wrote you yesterday the surgery
will
take place by Monday or Tuesday next week. My mother is a pensioner and

does not have a medical insurance or enough money to pay for the
surgery.
Pensioners are the most poor people here and they can count on theirs
kids
only. Some years ago, in the former USSR we had a free medicine.
Everything
was for free! But now the times has changed. Now we have to pay for
every
little thing. Actually, everybody can buy a medical insurance, but it
is quite
expensive. And not everybody can afford it. It is so good that I have
some
money to help my mother with her problems. I might have a shortage on
money
in America, but I am sure I'll overcome it.
I can't say that we have a history of cancer in our family. None of my
grandparents suffered from cancer. So I think it's by an unlucky train
of
events or a coincidence that both of my parents had such illness in
different
time. In fact, my father had a cancer of the heart muscle. That was the
reason
of his heart attack.
I visited my mom today. As you know she is in the hospital right now.
She is
getting ready for the surgery. She takes a medicine and vitamins. She
has to
become stronger before the surgery to overcome it well. I also talked
with my
mom about you and she is very glad that I'll have a friend in America
when I
come. But she told me to be careful as well. She said that there are a
lot cruel
men all over the world and I can become an easy meat for such kind of
people. I
said that you seem to be a good person and I do not think that you are
a despot
or something like this. I hope I'm not making a mistake about you Gil.
My
mother loves me very much and wants to protect me. So do not think that
she
accuses you in something. I think this is how all mothers say in such
situation.
By the way her doctor said that she will need a week after the surgery
before
she will be released from the hospital. As soon as she will be released
and I
will be sure that she is completely recovered I'll reserve a ticket. I
can't say
you the exact date of my leaving right now and I hope you understand
why Gil.
Yes?
Yesterday I had a walk with my friend Katerina. She is ok. She
completely recovered
from her car accident. I wrote you about it. Do you remember? We were
walking and
remembering our past times. We had a lot what to remember and what to
laugh about.
We even cried for a little bit because I'll leave and she will stay
here. I told
her that I'll try to find a work for her there. I hope that it will be
possible.
She is a salesperson in a store. She sells shoes. It is always very
hard to part
with your friends. Have you ever leave some of your friends for a long
time Gil?
I also want to ask you if you have a lake or a river somewhere close to
your town
where people may swim. Maybe there are some swimming pools. I like to
swim very
much and I'd appreciate if there are places where I could swim. By the
way, do you
have any night life in your town Gil? I actually do not like the out
doors much
but sometimes I dare to go somewhere if I have something to dress up.
Please let me
know. Maybe you could be a guide for me?
Well, it's time to close here. It's getting late and I want to wake up
early tomorrow.
Till then
With deep affection towards you Gil!
Your Anna

Hi Gil!
How are you? I hope you are well. I'm fine! It's just
a quick note for you Gil. I want to let you know
that I can't write much today. I have no possibility
to check my mailbox today. So, I don't know if you sent
me a message or not, but I'll check my mailbox tomorrow
morning and will write you a reply.
Please keep writing to me even if I didn't write, ok.
Well, I have to close now.
Till then Gil.
Yours Anna

Hello my friend Gil!
How have you been? How was your weekend Gil? Did you do something
interesting? My weekend was good. I spent a lot of time with my mom.
She is feeling well. Today is Monday and my mother will have a surgery
today. Her doctor said that she is ready to be operated. The surgery
will take place today in the evening and I'll pray for her. Tomorrow
morning I'll know the preliminary results of the surgery and will let
you know Gil. Her doctor said that everything will be ok, but I'm
still nervous about it. I'm going to cook something special for my mom
when she will be released from the hospital. I don't know what I'll
cook, but it will not be something that we eat on a regular basis. We
actually eat soup, porridge, spaghetti, mashed potatoes with meatballs
and what have you. I think she will need to eat more to recover her
strength, and I'll help her. I was told that she will be released in
a week if everything will be ok.
I hope so. Every single day in a hospital costs money and I hope that
it will not cost me too much. I wonder do you know how much does it
cost to stay in the hospital there.
My friend Katerina helps me a lot in last few days. She is a very
good friend. It is very important to have somebody who can help you
in a hard time. Do you have such friends? I hope so. We know each other

for a long time. We studied in the school together and now we live in
the neighboring courtyard. Too bad we will have to part. She does not
speak English well, so she has to study up for a little bit. Does
everyone speak fluent English there? Maybe some people will laugh at
my accent, who knows. I don't want to look like a white crow there.
I also will try to find and send you a pic of the two of us together.
So you will know how she looks like.
Gil, I have no friends in America but you. I have never told you
before, but I think it is time to tell you that. I had a relative in
the states. My aunt Elena went to the states many years before and
lived with her husband in the state of Maine. They met many years ago
in Moscow and did fall in love with each other. There was a very
romantic
story and maybe I'll tell you about it someday. They were married and
lived very well but a half year ago her husband died. My aunt had some
friends there but despite of it she decided to return to Russia and
now she lives not far from my town in the city of Novgorod. She is very

old and she says that she want to die in Russia. My aunt and her
husband
save up some money and my aunt will come into the right to get the
inheritance soon. They did not have kids so she will get the whole
amount.
I'm glad that my aunt will be provided to the end of her life. They
lived a long life together but they didn't have kids, I don't know why.

But as for me I'd like to have kids someday! I think this is what I
live for. I believe that every woman wants to have kids and I'm not an
exception. I think that children are the flowers of our life. There is
nothing in the world that can be worth of a single tear of a child. Do
you agree Gil? A part of us continues to live in our children when
we die. So we never die at all, we become immortal. What do you think
Gil?
I'm a very romantic and spontaneous person, so please don't be scared
of my thoughts. I like to ponder and sometimes it brings me to the
different interesting thoughts. What about you Gil? Well, I'll close
here. I want to visit my mom before the surgery. Oh, by the way she
told me to say 'Hi!' to you!
With the deepest affection towards Gil!
Yours Anna


Hello my friend Gil!

How are you? I hope not bad! It's just a quick note for you. I spent
all day in the
hospital and prayed God to help my mother. The surgery has been lasted
for 4 hours
and it ended well! Indeed, it's good news! I didn't see my mother but
her doctor said
that she is ok but she is reduced in strength. He said that she will
get well fast!
I was so nervous before the surgery and now I'm so happy that
everything ended well.
Gil, I feel myself tired and exhausted I need to go to the bed. I'm
terrible sorry
if I didn't answer to your questions today, but I promise I'll answer
them tomorrow
for sure. I hope you understand my condition today. Well I'll quit here
Gil. I'll
write you tomorrow and will let you know the approximate date of my
coming!
Till tomorrow Gil!
With Deep Affection for You!
Your Russian friend
Anna

Hello my friend Steve!
I think all your letters got to me.
We have been communicating for over one month! How fast the time is
running!
How are you my friend? How is everything? I hope that all is well
there!
Yesterday I got some problems that I had to resolve. Fortunately I
resolved them already! So everything is fine here.
I went to my mother to the hospital to see how she is and found her in
a
good mood and condition! I talked to her doctor and he said that
everything
is going well and my mother will be released real soon! It is so good!
In fact to stay at the hospital is not cheap so it will be good if she
will
be able to continue her recovery at home. My aunt Elena told me to not
worry and to get ready for the trip. She will take care of my mother.
My aunt is already retired and has enough time to help me and my
mother.
I'm so thankful to her! It is so important and gratefully to have folks

who can help you when you got a problem. Do you agree with me Steve?
Well, I want to tell you once again all about my trip to make it
absolutely
clear for you. I'm going to reserve a flight on November 23. I'll fly
with Aeroflot. It's a russian carrier. Aeroflot will be the cheapest
option for me. Then, as I was told, I'll spend two or three days in NYC

where I'll sign the contract and some other papers. My agency will
provide
me with the place to live there. And then I'll head to your area Steve.

I still do not know if it will be located in your town or it will be
a suburb of your town. I'll know it for sure when I come to NYC.
Do you have any plans for the evening? As for me I do not still.
I also was told that I'll get a medical bill soon. I think it will be
by the time my mom will be released from the hospital. We'll see.
Steve, I have no a picture for you today, but I think I'll find
a new one for you in the nearest time.
Well, I'll close here.
You are very special to me!
With Deep Affection for You!
Your Russian g/friend
Anna


I've gotten an email from her everyday for over a month. I googled her name before and got nothing. Today I tried yahoo and found this site. HOLY SHIT...
