Hi, my XXXXXX.
I even do not know what to tell first. I simply hope that you will be happy!
The most important, finest news - I did it! I got the visa! I am very happy!!!!
I as well have found out that I will get vacation April, 01.
I have been to the company that reserves airway tickets. I have asked to
find the cheapest roundtrip ticket up to any of these airports:
Birmingham, Huntsville, Chattanooga or Atlanta. And they have
found the ticket. They answered that they had a cheaper ticket and
the beginning of the flight April, 05. I should fly to airport Atlanta (ATL).
It costs $ 798 USD. It was the best variant for me. I asked them to reserve a ticket.
But they refused, because they can't reserve the ticket without advance payment.
I must pay full cost. I have asked if I can pay a part of money now, and the
other part later. They have told that it is possible, but I will be limited by term.
And if I will not pay the full cost of the ticket within of this term, I will lose already
nested money. I have agreed because it is the only chance for me, because
I must give to anti-emigration committee a data about my payment. By this moment
I had only the concrete sum of money which I had after all my expenses.
I paid $ 400 USD. But it was not enough for them. In a panic, all what Kristina
and I could do - we pawned our earrings and gold rings and I got $ 104 USD.
That is all I could do. The number of the flight on which I will get the ticket
is 100 Aeroflot-Russian Airlines. The time of departure from Moscow is 9:40am.
I will change a plan in New York, number of the flight 425 Delta Airlines.
After this I will fly to Atlanta, to you. The time of arrival in ATL is 6:34pm.
I know that probably I simply must tell that I can't come to you because
I haven't the remaining sum. I know that I promised to do all by self, and
I was sure that I can. I did not want to ask you. But after I did everything I did,
I cannot simply tell that I will not come to you. I have passed through so
many difficulties, and I have overcome the most difficult. But all the
same I have disgusting feeling that I could not fulfill the promise. I am
always ready to do all what is possible,- to fulfill my promises, but at
the same time I understand that any person could get in such a situation.
To get the visa I have spent much more money than I expected. But people
were ready to help me only if I will pay them. I paid more than 500
dollars to get all documents, I paid in municipal committee, in the
ministry. Even officers in army garrison have compelled me to pay for
their help. I did not expect all this, but up to the last moment I was
sure that I still can make everything. I expected that I can get a
vacation payment. We get a vacation payment after ending of a vacation.
I asked to give me this money now because I need this money urgently. But,
at the last moment I have got the answer that I can get this money urgently
only in case of serious illness or for example in case of death of the relative.
I feel so guilty. I was sure that nothing can prevent our meeting.
But I must pay remaining sum. It is $ 294 USD. And I must pay money
before March, 28, evening. Otherwise I will lose my nested money
and our jewelry will be sold out simply in vain. I know that I should not ask
you, and I am very ashamed to do it. I remember you said that you had
bad experience of dialogue with other lady. I know it and for me twice
difficult to address to you. But also comprehension of my position convinces
me, that any person could get in similar situation. I want to meet you and I
say sincerely that I need your help. I understand that I put you in inconvenient
position. But I am simple person, I am the simple woman. I am not the wizard.
I only ask you do not compare me to bad people and to think of me bad things.
Any person could get in a similar situation. And maybe I really simply had
to tell you that I can't meet with you because I could not provide my travel
completely. But I cannot simply refuse our meeting because then all my
diligence, forces, nerves, means will be spent in vain. I understand that
for you it is too big sum to lend me. You are not obliged to help me. And
500 dollars which I have spent to get the visa, and $ 504 that I have given
for the ticket are huge money for me. But I want you to know that I have given
everything not for the sake of myself, but for the sake of us, for the sake of you
and me. And I was happy all this time. If you want to meet me, to help me to
make our meeting, please, send money to the help before March, 28.
I want you to be confident in my sincerity, - that is why I send you the
scanner of my visa. At least you will see that I am completely honest.
I address to you only because I need it right now, because the
anti- emigration committee waits for me with all documents and
I am obliged to come to committee according to appointed term.
I do not know if you can to help me. But I have no other exit. I need you.
If you can help me I will tell you what I have found out. Kristina said that
you can help me with the help of remittance system Western Union.
So I have addressed to the nearest office Western Union. I have been told
that this system works always and reliably. And in the Western Union the
maximal term of transfer of money - some minutes! Do you heard about the
this system? You can send your help to any Western Union in Russia.
All you need from me is country and my full name. My country is Russia.
My full name is IRINA (my name) CALASHNIKOVA (my surname).
The nearest city where I can receive your help it Taganrog.
In Western Union I have been told, that to get the money, I must tell to employee
your full name, your full address, exact sent sum and the confidential number –
Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN). You will get this number in your Western Union
if you will send your help. Only with presence of all this information I can get your help.
I do not know what answer I will get from you. I very much am afraid that you
will not help me. But I want to tell, that I really need you, and I simply can't endure
the thought that I did almost everything, but I will not meet you. I understand that
it is big money. I have given all my forces, but together we are stronger. I really
ask you to help me. I will give you back all your money at the earliest opportunity.
I have written you honestly and sincerely. Are you with me?
