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
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
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
too. I'd like to visit the race sometime. Is it possible? Is it
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
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
I want you to know that I started to feel some kind of affection
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
it. Well, it is late and I have to quit here. I've attached a picture
you. The quality is not very good, but I hope you will like it. I'll
to prepare a new picture for you tomorrow.
I'll wait for your reply Michael!

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
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
and nervous at the same time. I so used to have my mother somewhere
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
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 if they are local only. Do you understand it? I hope. So I think
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
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
Katerina, as usual. She is my best friend. She is feeling well after
car accident by the way.
Well, my doctor is waiting for me. I have to go. I hope that I'll feel
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
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
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
I remember the times when everything was for free. It sounds like a
tale now. I have to pay 500 rubles ($20 USD) every time when I see my
I'm not sure if it is too many for America, but it is quite expensive
Russia. I wonder how much does it cost to see a doctor in America. Let
Michael, I want to ask you could you find out what the average
salary in America is. It is very interesting for me to know, especially
your area.
As I wrote you before I was going to reserve a ticket by this week. I
that I'll it by Wednesday or Thursday. As soon as I reserve a ticket
let you know the exact date of my coming! I also will have to pay some
to my agency; because they helped me to find a place to work and helped
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
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
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
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
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!
was white. I've got up very early today and what I've seen I could name
'The white
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
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

Letter received today Dec 10 2007 from Anna
Good news and bad news. ( Poor Anna)

Hello my dear Billy.
How are you? How is the weather there? I hope you feeling good. I have some good and not
good news for us. I don't know how to begin. Well, the good news are all documents are done
and I can come to you soon. Agency prepared all things for my trip to your country. They
prepared all necessary documents and reserved ticket for me from Moscow to New York City.
I have paid these services some months ago. So I had a ticket. I just needed to pay for documents
and for other necessary service. I got the money and decided to go to Pervoural'sk town as soon
as I can. So I went there to pay completely and to get documents. I drove my car to move to Pervoural'sk
and to visit agency. When I came to the agency and paid them, I got all documents and ticket. I was
very glad and happy! I wanted to come back to my town soon and to let you know about these
good news! Here good news are ending. Later are not good news Billy. When I drove car to
my home I got accident! The boy ran out to the street in front of my car!!!! It was so unexpected
for me, I could react but all I could do is turn my car to the left side! Because at the right side
was parked big truck and I couldn't stop without blow to boy at this short distance. The boy
ran out behind of that truck and I couldn't see him in time. Because of it I turned to the
left and I struck other car!!! It's bad news. But more bad things are the car I struck was foreign
expensive car and I would have to pay to fix all damages! The man from that car called road
police and they made up protocol of accident. The boy ran away and we couldn't find him! So all
fault was mine. But I hope you can understand that this fault of that boy. But I couldn't prove it
because boy was absent. When the expert commission said me about sum of money I have to pay
I was shocked and cried a lot!!! I didn't have this kind of resources! The damages of the foreign car
were big and my car suffered strongly too! Don't worry I am ok and my health is good. I got only
couple of scratches and bruises. The police took my car and placed it to the pay auto parking. My
car can't move now and I used bus to come to my home. The police gave me copy of protocol
and other papers and bill to pay for accident. They said that I have to pay it in short time and all I
thought up is move back to the agency and ask them about getting money back. I told them about
my situation and after two hours of talks they gave me money back. They took back all documents
and ticket. So now I have no it in my pocket and all documents in agency again! But they said
that I have to pay them back during 10-12 days else they will cancel my request for getting work in
your country!!!!! So they will delete my documents and will cancel reserved ticket! Agency said that
they can't hold my documents and ticket long time. So if I want to get documents and ticket and
to come to you I must pay them completely during 10 work days. Else I will lose all I have!!! All my
dreams will be broken! I will not be able to get new job I can't start new life in your country but
more important I will not be able to meet you and to be with you Billy!!!! This is terrible situation
for me and I am in depression now because even that I got money from agency it will not be enough
to pay for accident completely!!! When I came home I asked my friends about help they were
shocked and commiserated to me. We could find some money but I still have to find some funds!
It's not much of money but I don't know where to get it! My friends did all they could and I can't
ask them about help again because they will not be able to help. They would like to help more
but they can't! They said that I can give debts back as soon as it will be possible for me. I thanked
them. I don't know what I would do if I would not have friends! I will try to figure out what I can
do and will tell you about my results. But more important for me is where I will find money to
pay to the agency! If I will not do it I will lose all documents and will not come to you! This fact
oppress me and put me in depression. I don't know what to do and what to think up! I can't believe
that it was happen with me! Why Billy? Billy I know that you love me and want to meet me and
therefore I want to ask you maybe you can suggest me what to do? Honey do you have any idea how
to overcome this situation? Do you still love me my dear and will support me morally before I will be
here? Will you continue to write me?? Are you angry for me because of this occasion and because
of that we can't meet each other??? I hope you did not change your mind on me and still love me
and want to meet me. It was not my fault but I can't prove it! I just don't know when we can meet
each other at all if I will not find necessary sum of money during 10 - 12 days(till 20 December).
Because I will lost documents and to get new will take about 6-12 months and agency said that
perhaps I will not get it again at all because at the first time I didn't use it!!! There are many
people who want get documents and government will work with them and not with person who will
refuse from documents some times. I hope you can understand what I wanted to say. I tried to
get loan from bank but I have failed. They will not give money to person who will left country
and all the more so if I have accident bills. I will try to sell my broken car but It will not be easy
because we don't have a lot of men who want buy broken car. I don't know when I can do it and
I think It will cost very cheap! Also my car was old and this is other reason why I will not sell it
quickly. At least I think so. But firstly I will need to take my car from parking and to deliver it to
my town. I think I will have to use special truck which will transport it from Pervoural'sk to Nikitino.
But It's extra expenses!!! Right now I can't find any way where to find money that's why I asked
you about advise. Maybe you could help me by any way. You are my single hope now and perhaps together
we can find way out from this situation. What do you think Billy? Please write me back as soon as you
can and let me know your point of view. It's important for me to hear your thoughts. Remember I love
you and want to be with you but I am in difficult situation, I don't know what to do and need some help!
I need to find money to pay to agency during 12 work days(maximum) else I may forget about new job and
coming to your country and about our meeting!!!! I hope for your quick response and for your words which
will support me and will turn me back from depression to normal condition. I will wait for your next
e-mail with great impatience. Remember honey I think of you and never forget. I love you Billy!
With great love and hope from your Anna.

P.S. Please forgive me if I made a lot of mistakes. I just was nervous and upset. I hope you understand.

you don't need to join this site, it's free. You just pop in and post when you feel like it. No log-in or anything.

And please read the 'Are you being scammed and this is your first visit here?
Read the welcome page/ primer for newbies', just below this post.


thanks for posting the money letter. Is that the same one that the other guys got? I'm so bored with reading them, especially because I wish they'd use paragraphed text. Can it be that difficult?

Yes I can see the American caller id's only handle 10 digits. A tty system and or fax enabled phone would display the full numbers on international com systems.

Did any one see the msnbc report on scammers on 12/09 sunday? I'm sure it will come on again but this has been informative. The complete underground of / from theft identity to marriage scams etc. list is long for the type scams. Urgent meetings etc.. we know the profile.

Well in NC craigslist we have unknown group of males and females who are flagging regularly with good results. Most of these ads result in a link posted or you get an email. Some get serious and want to meet right away locally. Verbage you host or I can host, mostly protitutes but even older gals are looking for a sucker too. Basically trying to entice you to dating intro line and if you buy they have your credit card number.

Anything from cry babies to husbands that won't do it, anything to plead on your sympathy. They may be 19 or 70 and still have the same b.s. twist.

Where's the money.

The letter posted above, (I received an identical letter) is a setup to the money letter.

The money letter will be the next letter, mine came four days later. I have previously posted in this thread the name and bank info the money letter will ask for. It will be interesting to see if the Anna scammers have changed the name and bank for this current crop of money letters.

Eddie from Sweden  

thanks for the info. Yes, I saw that most details had been posted already, but I very easily lose track :D...And I agree - it will be interesting to see if there are variations in the scam. Wanna bet on the side?

I wish there was more I could do in this case.

about the telephone call that BigD got, I'm quite tempted to try calling +7 961 630396(0 through 9), just to see if I get a result.

...but if I remember rightly the name os the that particular scammer wasn't Anna Petrovna Sotova, but something else. Still, could be worth a try.

My response to the unexpected follow-up message from Anna Petrovna Sotova, a polite response to her puppetmaster, has gone unanswered.

But I thought the scam-hunters might want to see this item. It may give you a new concern, given the popularity of.

Warning sounded over 'flirting robots'
Posted by {Ina Fried}
Those entering online dating forums risk having more than their hearts stolen.

A program that can mimic online flirtation and then extract personal information from its unsuspecting conversation partners is making the rounds in Russian chat forums, according to {security software firm PC Tools}.

The artificial intelligence of CyberLover's automated chats is good enough that victims have a tough time distinguishing the 'bot' from a real potential suitor, PC Tools said. The software can work quickly too, establishing up to 10 relationships in 30 minutes, PC Tools said. It compiles a report on every person it meets complete with name, contact information, and photos.
{[Click for gallery]}

'As a tool that can be used by hackers to conduct identity fraud, CyberLover demonstrates an unprecedented level of social engineering,' PC Tools senior malware analyst Sergei Shevchenko said in a statement.

Among CyberLover's creepy features is its ability to offer a range of different profiles from 'romantic lover' to 'sexual predator.' It can also lead victims to a 'personal' Web site, which could be used to deliver malware, PC Tools said.

Although the program is currently targeting Russian Web sites, PC Tools is urging people in chat rooms and social networks elsewhere to be on the alert for such attacks. Their recommendations amount to just good sense in general, such as avoiding giving out personal information and using an alias when chatting online. The software company believes that CyberLover's creators plan to make it available worldwide in February.

Robot chatters are just one type of {social-engineering attack} that uses trickery rather than a software flaw to access victim's valuable information. Such attacks have been on the rise and are predicted to continue to grow.

Update 4:10 p.m. PST: Mike Greene, vice president of product strategy at PC Tools, said that the company learned of CyberLover's existence earlier this week as part of its regular monitoring of IRC chat rooms and other places where talk about malware takes place.

Greene said that it is hard to tell how prevalent use of the program is in Russia.

'We don't have exact statistics, but I think it's early on,' he said.

Greene said that the perceived anonymity of the Internet has desensitized people to the fact that information disclosed in an online chat can cause real-world damage.

'People are used to not opening attachments or maybe not clicking on a link that shows up in their IM,' he said. 'But this emulates a real conversation, so you more are likely to give over personal information, click on a link or send your photograph.'

The name you would ask for is Anna Safronova. Keep in mind that even if you block your caller ID number, (which I strongly suggest you do) call tracing could still be available to the scammer, at least it would be here in the US. Having said that, here in the US calls can be traced even if the number is blocked (by dialing *57 in dial tone after the block call has been received) but call tracing information in the US is available only to law enforcement and never to the public.

Bottom line, if you call the number (and I have a hunch the number will be right) be sure to block your outgoing caller ID. If I knew Russian I would call out of curiosity - but I would call from a throwaway cell phone - I assume you can buy throwaway cell phones in Russia as well, which is what they would use.

On the other subject of whether or not they change the name and bank I think it's fair to say that if they are as sophisticated as we think they may be, the name and bank will change.

I will let you make your side bet as you see it. We'll call it a gentleman's bet, but payable by demand of one beer if we ever happen to visit the others country.

Well okay I had said East Timor.. Well its not really out of the question box is it possible? Yes.

Nigeria is notorious for scamming and with the banks etc not willing to transfer monies there or scams to any country originating there. A little twist is they (the scammers) have moved their opps to 'Benin' and setup internet cafe's (benin is so frigging poor) So who's to say what little country with modest communications can't pull it off. Stolen credit card info goes underground and guess what? origin of purchase? Benin. East singapore? not out of the question!

The sad part about it is countries hosting these people. It's not just russia. Every continent in the world (aside from antarctica) is/has/hosts scammers. Unfortunately this msnbc report says Iran welcomes hosting these people. Guess who's coming to dinner and financing it?

Thus I think education is important. E-hormany is a lust list for scammers! reveal everything and (I can guarantee you that web site is lurked often)

Scammers come in all ages, sizes, genders. from anna is the bride to be scam, from others it's buy and drop scam. From little local scam whores it's you're screwed litterally if you buy the bull.

Get a say $10 phone card for so many minutes. Then call from a gas / petrol station at the other end of town. You only need to make 2 or 3 calls per day from different public phones. [Wonder how many beers $10 can buy in that part of the world]

Hi JeffG

You're right, of course, that scams exist in most countries and on every continent, and that most countries host them as well.....all sizes, shapes and varieties. A 'Russian dating scammer' was actually busted in the north of Sweden a couple of years ago.

However, one thing I've noticed regarding Russian, Ukrainian, Nigerian and Filippino scams (the ones I know something about) is that they all have characteristics that are individual to their countries of origin. Without going into details, it seems fairly clear that the Anna Petrovna Sotova is a Russian scam, if that hasn't been proved already.

And you're also absolutely right that 796 is the international code for East Timor, nobody's questioning that. But it seems quite far fetched that a scammer called Anna Safranova should phone the US from an East Timor number.

You have to agree that it's much more likely that the scammer phoned from Russia - 7, and from St Petersburg 961 in particular, and that the final digit has somehow been deleted?

PBR...if you ever make it to Stockholm, the beers on me (may be a little stronger than you're used to)

Hello my dearest man Billy!
This is your Anna. I hope you glad to hear from me today. I hope you are ok and my last news
didn't totally disappointed you. Honey are you disappointed in me? Please write me back and say
me that I am wrong and you are not disappointed and love me. I think these words will help me
to overcome this situation more easily and will uplift my mood. I hope I will hear from you soon.
I will wait your next e-mail with great impatience. Because I am in bad situation and I need to
feel your presence and your care. I hope you can understand me. I would do all I could to take
care about you if you would be in situation like me. But I want to wish you be lucky and that all
bad things will never happen with you! Billy I want to tell you some details about my
accident and want to give you some information about how we can be together. I searched during
all the day the way how I can fix my problems and how we can meet in appointed time. I hope
you will understand me and will try to help us to meet. Firstly in my last e-mail I forgot to tell
you some things about accident. I already paid almost all money for accident. I had no insurance
of my car and that’s why I was forced to pay from my pocket. Here in Russia not everyone have
insurance because we don't have obligatory insurance. If man want to insurance car, he will do it,
if he don't want, it's his choice. I hope you can understand me. Also we couldn't find boy and
eyewitnesses. This accident was happened in the evening and there were no almost any people.
But when I could find one man and asked him about accident he said he saw nothing! I was sad.
I thought a lot about my car and I decided to left it on a parking and I will try to sell it in Pervoural'sk.
I don't have resources to transport car to Nikitino. I think will be better to left car in Pervoural'sk.
Ok, that's all about my car and payment for accident. Right now most important thing is where
to find money to pay to agency to get back all my documents and ticket!!! Billy, dear, please
forgive me, I didn't want to ask you about any financial help!!!! It would be last thing I would
ever asked you about! But I don't see any way how to overcome this situation. Honey can you
help me with getting money? I am so sorry and this is a disgrace for me. I know you thought
I am independent and self-reliant person but now I think you could change your mind? Am I right?
Please tell me that I am not right! I really hope for it. I am crying! I am asking myself all
the time how it could happen???? Ok, please forgive me for my tears. I want to tell you some
details of my searching. I went to agency and asked them about can you send money to agency
directly? They said that they don't work with foreign citizens. I found out that they work with
Russian banks and Russian citizens. They even don't allow credit cards and use cash only. You
know Billy the credit cards are not popular here and all population of country prefer to use
cash. The person who use credit card is rare! So they said that I have to pay them directly by
cash like I did it before. Also I went to bank here and asked them could you send me any money
from your country to me, here. They said that there is no any bank who work with foreign banks.
You know my town is small. I asked maybe I can find this bank in Pervoural'sk. They said that there is
one bank but to get account there and to transfer money from your country Billy to me will
take about two weeks. I think I don't have so much time! Sorry but our bank system works slowly.
I have asked employee of the bank maybe there is other way how to make transfer from one
country to other. He said me that he know company which make money transfers in the world
The name of company is western union. I hope you know this company. I remember, I saw
advertising of this company on TV. He said that I need to learn how they work in the office
of western union and gave me address. I was glad and thanked him. Honey I found this office
and I learned how they work and what we need to send funds. Honey if you have possibility to
use service of this company and want to help me to get documents back here is information for
you. But I have one problem with using western union service. I know that it's single way you
can use to help me but I hope you can understand me. I hope it will not be a problem for you.
I found out that I can't receive any transfer from you Billy. I found out it in the western
union office! I can't get it because I am unemployed and have accident bills. This is our(russian)
rule here. This rule began functioning some months ago. I was sad. When I found out it I went
to my friend Tatiana and asked her about help. She will be glad to help me. Thanks the God that
I have good friends! So if you will go to western union to send funds please send it to the name
of my friend TATIANA STOYCO! Don't forget, use her name! I need 720$. You can send it in dollars,
I will exchange it to rubles. To send money use this address:
This is address of western union in Pervoural'sk town. We will go there together with Tatiana. Also
I will need from you this information: confirmation number of transfer(10 digits), sum of
transfer, full name of sender and address of sender. If I will not have any of this information I
will not be able to pick your transfer up! Please don't forget, I need all this information!!! I will
be glad if you will send me information like I wrote here:
Sender's name:
Sender's address:
Confirmation number:
Sum of transfer:
It will be more convenient and easily for me. I just want to be sure that all information is correct
and don't want to make a mistake when I will write in papers in western union. If I will make
mistake they will not give me your transfer! I hope you can understand me honey! Billy now
I want to tell you some details of my trip and of my documents. If you will help me I will pay
to agency immediately and will get all documents and ticket to New York City. I already wrote
you about it before. I think you remember. Please don't worry. I have to visit New York and stay
there about one day because I have to visit office of agency there to get additional documents
and directive to my new work. Also I will get advance there(3000$) so when we will meet each
other I will give you all money back and you will lose nothing!!! Are you ok with it dear? I think it's
good thing. After I will get all papers I will come to you! Agency will take care about my road
from their office to your area! They will pay for it! I remember information about closest airport to
you and I will come there after my stay to New York. So we don't need to worry about it. I will try
to call you from NYC and I will try to find place where I can send you e-mail. I will send you all

P.S. I have attached copy of my passport and ticket. This is part of documents I will get back after payment.
The agency allowed me to scan it. I sent it because I want to show you that I am really coming.
