Hi my love John! This letter is from the almost lucky lady. Why is almost? As today after my work I went to visas firm. I was told that my visa was ready at last, (I send you its SCAN). I was most happy the person at that time. But this firm not only makes visas, it also reserve tickets. I decided to use their service again. I was told that the flight to Oakland costed 801.70 USD. It was too expensive for me, and I asked them to find the cheapest variant. And they offered. It would be on the 26-Apr. and cost 750.50 USD. I wondered if it was possible to reserve a ticket and to pay for it a part of the money this time and the other part later. But they refused and I was in despair. I asked them to help me so long that tears came to my eyes. And they agreed. I wasted all my money, but it wasnt enough. So I went to pawnshop and pawned silver and gold embellishments which I had from my mom. I got 150 USD and that was enough for initial payment. I have paid in whole 400.50 USD. It was my last money. The number of the flight on which I resevered the ticket is 8:50 am Depart Moscow (SVO)Arrive Oakland (OAK) 5:58 pm. It is very difficult for me to tell you about it. But I have done everything I can. I paid visa. I have bought the ticket on a train up to Moscow. I paid a part of the ticket. But this money is not enough. I dont want to burden you. I want to reach you with my own money but unfortunately I have failed. Now I have to pay the remaining part. It is only 350 USD. I must pay this money before April 14, Otherwise I will lose my money. If you love me, if you trust me and if you want to see me soon, please, send the money for the ticket before April 14, tomorrow morning. I understand that it is a difficult decision for you, but we must trust each other. Any union without trust is impossible if it is a union of wife and husband or a union of boy-friend and girl-friend or a union of business partners. I dont want to be hypocritical. Thats why I want to tell you following: I do not think that you would like to give the love to the woman whom you dont trust. So I am. Its a first check for us. And much depends upon it, may be everything. We must trust each other. Thats why I was the first who made first step. Step to you. Of course if you dont want you can not help me. It is bad but not fatal. I will lose my money. IT IS TOO BAD BUT NOT TOO FATAL . I speak so because I am in despair and confusion. Now, when we are divided only with one step, I am afraid. I am afraid that you will not help, and all my diligence will be gone. I love you and I want to be with you and the word of honour, your help is necessary for me. I have not calculated my forces. But together we are much stronger. It is much easier to go through difficulties and barrier together. I want to present you all my infinite love and fidelity. I did not want to ask you. I thought, that I can make all itself. The loneliness has made me strong. I have got used to live without the help, and to rely only on myself. I very seldom address to somebody for the help, but now I ask you to help me. I have made a step forward. Make also you a steptowards to me. I hope that has not offended you. I love you and I trust. I know, that you will not throw me now when there is only one step. Tell me John, can you help me? If you have an opportunity please help me. I wonder how it is possible to do. There is an International Western Union (by the way, they have a website, called westernunion.com). You may send me money using Western Union according following data: Russia. BARNAUL. STROITELEI PROSPEKT, 4B ALFA BANK , 656002 For Anna Rak. To get the money, I should tell the employee of bank your full name, full address, exact amount and some confidential numbers (Money Transfer Control Number), which will be given to you, when you send the money. I love you very much! I think about you John every time. Forever yours Anna.
