She goes by the name of Viktoryia Siaminova in Minsk and gave an address.
I found her using the [email protected] ads by myself, no agency. What a joy to see your letters in my mail box, especially as I was very busy and didn't have the opportunity to send you a simple message!
And all members of this group should pay in cash to the University and then the University will pay for all arrangements and it will be the University who will be responsible for all members of the group and it is like a guarantee for the American Embassy that everything will be OK.
But unfortunately I will be just unable to pay for such trip myself as neither my parents nor my friends don't have such money.
All the problems of the world seem to be not important because of something special I found out!
I have a wonderful and unexpected news for both of us! On Saturday we, I mean all my family, as usual on the weekend gathered together in our house. And there was a meeting at her University where the teachers were announced about the trip to USA in a month.
I did not think it would be something special, you can imagine all these talks of nothing with the relatives ;) It was my aunt, who surprised me very much! It will be a student exchange and the group of students will be living in an American families .
After such a long silence I am eager to share my feelings and news with you! I am pleased to meet you and to know that there is a man in the world who is thinking of me and who likes me.
But I hope that I will meet you and will be happy with you.
I think it would be wonderful to enjoy our time together so soon!
Let me add some things that threw up red flags for me: 1) She had no desire to meet in Minsk but rather in my country.
2) She had no desire to talk on the phone even though I speak Russian fluently if not poorly. 5) The one actual letter I got with an actual picture of her from the post office was typed and not signed, she feigned poor handwriting for typing it. I wanted to discuss the fact that I had children and she skirted the subject. 7) When I finally talked about buying air tickets etc.
Of course in the first month she said she was doing fine and didn't need any money.
