My wife and I wanted to tell you that your site is excellent and you 
provide a valuable service. My wife Vita is from Ukraine and even 
recognized a site on your black list as a business that she avoided when 
she lived in Dniepropetrovsk. The men running the business charged honest 
women money for a "service" then used their photos and information in 
unknown ways, probably illegal. The women had to use the agency for all 
incoming and outgoing mail and were not even allowed to see the final 
outgoing letters! Vita and I count ourselves very lucky... we've been happily married 15 months.

Nelli Lapicheva aka Ina Adamova (Minsk, Belarus)

Please note that Ina Adamova is now using the following contact information: 

Nelli Lapicheva
Frunze 31-5
Minsk 220034
Tel: + 375 296 20 70 80

Note that the phone number she gives is the same one identified by various scam groups as Ina's mobile phone. I found her information and photos in the following agencies:

Russian Women's Club profile 72850
LoveGarden profile 62436 number 1001925 id# NL1101

"Nelli" is supposedly a travel agent in Minsk. The photos she is using are 
different. The hair is dark and though the shape of the face is the same, I 
think she must be using photos of a different woman. I am attaching the 
photos from the different sites.


"Medeia" agency (Lugansk, Ukraine)

I am a 36 year old man, and I found a woman through the marriage agency Medeia in Lugansk. They provided the e-mail correspondence for about 3 months, until I decided to meet with the woman in Lugansk. I arranged to meet this woman through the agency and showed up personally.

It was obviously a surprise for them that I showed up in person, nobody knew who I was or that I was coming, even if everything was prearranged. After explaining the situation that I was there to meet this specific woman, I was explained that this woman lived in another city, and could not be reached.

I was then offered to meet with another woman from their web-site. They had about 30-40 women as clients which they sell correspondence with, but they told me that most of the women was not available or was engaged. As this puzzled me I decided to send them a little test. I sent a request from another e-mail account with a different picture and voila, the woman was suddenly available, not only that, she answered after a few hours :-)

To tell the truth I was offered on my last day of stay to meet with the women I had corresponded with originally, only after hassling them on the phone each day. But by then I had arranged another meeting with a different woman, and I had lost all faith in the agency, so I cancelled the meeting never knowing if it was the right woman. 

When I got home to my country I confronted them with the truth, that they sell correspondence with unavailable or "non-existent" women, but they instead rudely dismissed me, telling me everything was my fault.

By the way, I also got a peek into the working office, 4 women employed by the agency writing constantly :-) I guess it's a thrifty business :-))

Later when I threatened to write my story to the blacklist, they sent me links to their happy couples section, like evidence of their success. Maybe it's true or not, I won't bet my money on it :-)

Fortunately I didn't lose any money because of this, even if they insisted that I send money I managed to postpone it, other men may not have been so lucky...

My conclusion is to NOT trust this agency, even if they seem sincere.


Natalia Taruta (Kherson, Ukraine)

I am a 38 years old Japanese man working for a high tech. Industry. I found this girl - Natalya Turuta in Anastasia in the beginning of May. Her profile ID in Anastasia is 25v-290. After I sent my photo and introduction by post, I kept on calling her. Her English was good and she said she has ever worked in Japan before as dancer. So we got used to each other quite well. The communication with her continued mainly by telephone.

Then I decided to visit Kiev to meet her. For the travel cost, I sent her 150 USD. I have the copy of western union transfer for $150 I sent for her. I waited for her in Kiev during August 27 to September 1, 2001. I have previously informed her of my hotel. She never show up. She has really crashed my heart. I trusted her because she was fluent in English and said she worked in my country before. 

She is not an internet scam but she did not keep her promise with me. 

Additionally, her intention to scam me was apparent coming to think of the fact now that although she said she sent me her letter and the photo, it has never arrived. Normally, any letter from Ukraine to Japan does arrive without fail. So now I know that she has just used the money I sent her for other purposes and that she did scam me.


Natalya Jitinkina (Yoshkar-Ola, Russia)

I can't believe I had my platinum card on the mouse pad, ready to send $440, when I wanted to ensure correct spelling of Yoshcar-Ola. Thank God for Yahoo search finding your site! As I read, I got more curious about these scams. Wouldn't you know it, I found several verbatim letters sent to me too. Then, I found her...or at least her name, with a younger photo. I'll attach three that show her a bit older.

Natasha, as she has me call her, started getting very graphic in her mail, suggesting we could sleep "absolutely naked" in the winter and still stay warm. Sounds good, right? Then she asked for $440 for her visa through the "travel company". She had me a bit suspicious when she said she would have her visa in 10 days. I got real suspicious and didn't send any money at the first request, because I had heard how difficult it is to acquire a visa at the US embassy. But she is enticing!

It's amazing how she is able to prey on idiots like me...I suppose finding love is like the sweepstakes scams...if she looks too good to be true, she probably is. Luckily, finding this site has saved me, and it appears to be on a site which may be hosting a reputable service. I'll definitely be checking a lot closer.

Anyway, I'll attach her three pictures. Oh, since she was so suggestive, I told her there would be a one day delay in the transfer, so could she send me some of those "absolutely naked" images of her to keep ME warm! I wonder if I'll ever hear from her???

Once again, thank you for having this site. You saved me a lot. And in return for your service, you'll probably receive some of those saved dollars. (Your service will actually pay off for you!)

Natalya Jitinkina (Yoshkar-Ola, Russia) - 2

I am 39 year old mail - white American - single dad of one, who was almost scammed by a Russian women if not for this website. I was corresponding with this woman for about a month when she asked for $440.00. Natalya Jitinkina is the scammers name. Her address Russia, Republic Mari-el, city Yoshkar-ola, street Lebedeva, house 32b, apartment 73. want me to send money to Guta Bank, street Vashskaya 8, city Yoshkar-ola. She wanted my complete address and airport closest to me, which I gave her, but ask for a phone call before sending the money. That same day I came across this website. Saw her name, and letter that were exactly identical to the ones she sent to me. only thing was the picture of her was different. Natalya first contacted me thought Her E-mail address is (USA ) Thanks to this website I was saved.


Raisa aka Ekaterina Ershov (Murmansk, Russia)

Hi my name is Mark I am 37, never married, no children, and I live in Wisconsin. I suspect I am currently being scammed by a girl going by the name of Raisa from Murmansk. She is on page 20 of your website with the name Ekaterina Ershov. She sent me the first letter out of the blue claiming she saw my profile on Right away the red flag went up as I do not even have a profile on, but interestingly her email was forwarded through (where I do have a profile) she has a short  profile on (#5160967) pretty crafty of her. So I dismissed the whole scare and began an almost daily correspondence. By the second letter I was already noticing she was not answering any of the questions I put to her, but just chalked it up to a small language barrier. The letters continued on an almost daily basis, then her sixth letter was signed Tamara and not Raisa. Whoah, now I was definitely curious as to what was going on here. So fortunately I found your website and did some investigation, there were the pictures I had been getting plus a few extra. also noticed a very similar letter on your website from a Elena Kruglova, could they be one in the same? So far there have been no requests for money, but unfortunately I did give her my phone number (she even called me once). She told me she has no phone but did give me a mailing address: Street Sovetskaya 65-32, City of Murmansk, Russia, 183054

My first letter from Raisa:

Hi my friend Mark. I am glad that you have answered to me. I did not think  that it will be so soon. But believe me I am so glad to this fact. I want to tell to you about myself. My growth is 168 centimeter, weight is about 57 kgs. I was born on September 5, 1974, in a very good family of two loving each other people: my father and my mother. I live in city of Murmansk. I like my city. I'll give you some information about my city: Murmansk stands in 300 kilometers to the north of a Polar circle and in 30 miles from open sea: its geographical coordinates - 68 '58' northern breadthes and 33 '03' east longitudes.The city was stretched more than 20-kilometer strip along not freezing the Kola gulf. Murmansk is administrative, industrial, scientific and cultural centre. Almost half of all population of the Kola peninsula lives here. The population of Murmansk today is more than 400 thousand people. The area of city is more than 15 thousand hectares. The city is located main by image on east coast of the Kola gulf - most brisk bay of coast Murman. On globe in the same breadthes there is no other city, which could be compared to Murmansk on scales. Murmansk houses as if grow from rocky hills environmental the Kola gulf. It is summer here now. There are a lot of green here now, this is the most perfect season here in our territory. But as the summer is hot here the winter is really cold. My favourite season is spring, when the nature again wakes up after winter dream, and everything begin to blossom. I studied in Murmansk state technical university, also has received high education on a speciality marketing. But unfortunately I did not need my education yet, because here in our country it is very difficult to find job on a speciality. Now I work as the waiter in small restaurant. I'd love to learn more about you. Besides I would like to see your photos. I like to be in good health every time.That's why each day I rise early in morning and I carry out morning jog. I do not drink alcohol and do not smoke. On the summer I like very much swim in the sea, and on winters I go to the pool. So in general I like to support a healthy image of life. It helps in life very much, and supports my figure. Though I live in this city I didn't meet my half yet. When I read the newspaper I have seen the announcement that it is possible to meet the man through the Internet and I has decided to try to find someone for me through Internet. Fortunately here is the computer at director's cabinet, and I have asked the him to let me to use it. And he has permitted me to use it no more than one hour per day. I liked your profile and I have decided to write to you. When I wrote you I did not think at all that you will answer me. I am very glad to receive your letter. Write me about yourself. I'll wait for your next letter.  
Your friend from Russia Raisa.

The sixth letter (with a surprise name change):

Hi. I can not to you write today, I only would find a pair of minutes what to write to you these lines. At us today holiday of September 1 everyone begin to study at school at university, and we have a lot of visitors. And I have a lot of work. I shall answer your letter tomorrow. Yours Tamara.

Her email address is


Raisa aka Ekaterina Ershova (Murmansk, Russia) - 2

I'm writing to complain about a Russian woman that you already have listed in your pages page 19 (Ekaterina Ershova). She has been writing me for the past 2 weeks claiming to be "Raisia" ...working in Murmansk at a small cafe called the "Lagoon." She's very pretty and only now has recently made any inclinations of wanting to come to the USA... so after dealing with Natasha Jintininka, I spent my time again reading between the lines... Seems to me that nobody is doing anything to stop these hustlers from scamming for I will again write Interpol and American embassy their notice of complaint... I have enclosed a photo collage of what she sent me along with copies of her letters .. you might as well post them in your next listing....I didn't send her any cash...but she will get my foot up her ass if I see her in person!


Raisa Adamova (Tyumen, Russia)

I am a 37 year old male from the southern USA. After placing an ad on, I received a response from Raisa Adamova. She seemed to be a very nice young lady. Thankfully, I came across this blacklist site. Her story sounded too familiar. Lives with family in Tumen, 27 yrs. old, never married. Within one week, she was declaring her undying love for me. I explained to her that we didn't really know each other that well yet, then she began getting almost hysterical in her letters...saying that she could not live without me. I explained that It would be a while before I could make a trip to Russia. At this point her English skills greatly improve and she proceeds to tell me that a "friend" can get her a B-2 visa for $290, and she goes into far to much detail on how it should be sent by Western Union. Here is a copy of her last letter to me.


We in city have firm, which is engaged in registration the visa, 290 $ US is dearly. But it is real! The visa prepares for 1 month, I understand, that there is a visa few money costs, these the visa prepare 0,5 or 1 year and it is not yet known as it will work. At me the girlfriend recently has left in USA to the groom, she to me has told all as it is necessary all to do, if you want to see me soon, is real and it is reliable, you should do how I speak you. I am very glad, that you want to see me, I too dream of it, I want to be with you!!! I to understand that on trip to you many money is necessary. I once again speak to you that The visa to refer to as B-2. I do not know why I liked your structure. I have thought that it is that man about which I dreamed all life. It was reduced us by (with) destiny, and I am very glad to destiny because it has reduced us together. On the visa 290 dollars are necessary. This visa to work 90 days.

I am also sending photos. If it weren't for this site, I would probably have been taken of the $290 and much more. People like this must be stopped.


Tatyana Pavlova

My name is Rich and I am a 42 year old male who was looking for someone to love and marry. I had listed a profile on the website for a three month period. Two and a half months ago, A Russian woman e-mailed me and said that she liked my photo. We began an immediate rapport, writing each other every day. To make a long story short, a month ago I proposed marriage which she accepted because I didn't want her to think she wasn't good enough for me. I wish I could have found this site sooner! I should have been suspicious when she said she could get out of Russia without my meeting her first, or MY petitioning for the fiancee visa, both which are required by U.S. law! But like a dunderhead, I sent $125.00 to cover some of the cost of the fiancee visa and then $450.00 to cover some of the cost of the ticket. It has been eight days now since I have heard from her so I began looking around. I even wrote Aeroflot airlines trying to see if she had booked a flight! When I stumbled across this website, I couldn't believe I found her here. I feel like such a fool! If you ever get the full name of the Russian woman you are corresponding with, type the name into a search engine like I did...You might end up here!!! And do it before you send any MONEY!!! The e-mail address she used was: Many of her letters are the same as the one printed by other fellows who have been scammed by this woman.

Tatyana Sergeeva (Kazan, Tatarstan, Russia)

I am a single 40 year old from Ohio, USA. Just wanted to warn people of Tatyana. We corresponded for about a week starting July 24th, 2001. She's back at it again so I thought I should take the time to warn others. I did not send her any money and hope that no one else has either. I have seen her profile on a couple of times, each with very beautiful pictures (that look like they are taken from a catalog or something) of different girls. She leaves an email address in the myself category at udate. She first used the email address... then switched to 

Here is her first letter.

Hello Joe!
I?m Tatyana (dragon-fly) from Udate.
Ladge thanks for your interest! Sorry, but I not member of Udate,
And I have no opportunity look to your profile, but if you realy interested in serious relations with 28yo Russian woman with 3yo daughter, please, e-mail me And please, write more about you.Wait your letters,

Her second email told me a little about herself and by the third email, she had already chosen me over the others. ;) Here are the contents of the third letter.

Hello, dear Joe!
Thank for your remarkable letters!
I am very glad to have such friend as you. Today I shall delete my profile from Internet. I do not want to give you an occasion to think, that I correspond with somebody else except for you. I shall not deceive you, I have received letters not only from you, but other men wrote thing which not so liked me. Some asked to send a photo of my naked body, others wanted to find the servant, the third in general ill people tried to engage in virtual sex... I am shocked... Forgive for such details, but I want to receive your trust to begin your friend. Therefore I think, you should know all about me. I want to tell to you about my city and about my family. Our city is located in the central Russia as you already know. About the river Volga. The population approximately 800 000 person. The nearest large citie Novgorod. From Moscow of 800 kilometers. If to get on a train in the evening, you will come to Moscow the next morning. We think, that it is close. Our city very green clean and beautiful. I very much love my city. All my family lives in this city and all very much help me. My family very small. My daddy, my mum and my grandmother. I have no brothers and sisters. Unfortunately. My parents live very close from our house where we live with the daughter in a small apartment from 1 room. They very much help me. Very much love my daughter. Now I want to tell to you about the reasons which have compelled me to make the decision to leave my family, my friends, my native land. First of all I care of happiness of my daughter. You know, I very much love her. I want, that she had good education, good work, good family and friends. I all life studied and now I study, but I do not see prospect, you know what low wages at me, I hardly can feed and dress my daughter and me. I hope, you understand me. I early never leave Russia. Still I want to ask you if we with you sometime shall understand, what we are necessary each other and we with Elena shall arrive to live in your country how you think, I shall have an opportunity to work with my education? I very much want to work. I very much like my trade. It seems to me, that in family should work both the husband and the wife, I think, that it is necessary. If the husband and the wife want to be first of all partners and friends, both of them should earn money for family and children. Please, inform the opinion in this occasion. Today I finish the letter and with impatience I wait your answer. Your Russian friends, Tatyana and Elena.

Her fourth email had the request. Here are the contents of the letter. This was after a week or so of corresponding. As usual she avoids answering any direct questions. 

Hello, dear Joe!
Thank for your letter. I am very glad to get acquainted with such remarkable man. At us all is good, in the street realy summer, sun, we long go for a walk. We have good mood and us warmly that we hope, that you think of us. I think, that to you interestingly my past. I have married in 20 years, I loved the man and wanted to give him all love, wanted to live with him all life. When our daughter was born, we had to part, because I have understood, that this man can never be the good father and husband. I did not understand it before birth of the daughter, I was blinded by love. My husband has appeared irresponsible, not the careful and very bad man. In 0,5 years after birth of the daughter I have left him. Now we live together in a small apartment from 1 room, which we rent. Therefore we have no the telephone. We have no what communication with the Elena's father. I do not know where he and that with him. Also I do not want to know. We do not receive what support from him, I can require through court a part of his salary, but I shall never do it. I never want to recollect my terrible past, when I one grew, treated and provided my daughter. But I am grateful to the god that now I have the perfect healthy child and far friend, which thinks of us (I very much hope for it). I very much want to present a gift for you. I think, that will be wonderful, if my daddy will ask for the friend a videocamera and we shall send for you the cartridge with film about my city, our family. You can hear our votes, look at  us not only on a photo, and in film. How you think? I do not know, how many sending will cost, but I think no more, than 5 dollars. I shall find out, if you like my idea. Joe, dear, I have no the computer in my house, therefore is compelled to use  paid service in Internet - centre. If you want to get acquainted with me, some money will be necessary for continuation of correspondence for me. Namely 20 $ for free use Internet during 2 months. If you have serious intentions, I shall  wait your answer. You can transfer money through Western Union. My address: Russia, Tatarstan (state), Kazan (city), Sovetskaya str. 62-47, for Tatyana (first name) Sergeeva (last name) 

If you will decide to transfer money, send a transfer number, your address and your complete name on E-mail I?m very sad that money so important in our lifes? In our small city the Internet is accessible very much recently and all services very expensive. I regret.... I do not want, that money became a barrier between us and if you have problems with money, I can ask money for my parents and correspond with you? I want your trust. I want to know your soul, your dreams. I think that is must important. I regret, but I can not long use the computer...
I wait your letter.
Best wishes,
Thank for your letters!
Kisses from me and hugs from Elena.


I told her what a good idea the videotape was and never heard from her again. I did not send her any money. I waited for her to post another profile and she has, this time with a different set of pictures. So I just want to warn others.


Victoria Kuznetsova (Kiev, Ukraine)

My name is Kent. I am a 38 years old Japanese man working for a high tech. Industry. I was introduced to this woman, Victoria Kuznetsova by A Foreign Affairs Marriage Introduction Agency's office in Kiev. Normally, the agency provides an interpreter but this girl came with her own interpreter who was a young man. I should have thought it was strange. After two or three hours meeting with the girl and this interpreter, the interpreter charged me $130. I asked for discount, and paid $100 to the man because the man sort of threatened me that something would happen if I did not pay. I brought the girl to the office of agency and consulted with the agency's manager about this matter. This agency is a reliable agency so the manager accused her of the possible fraud and asked whether she and the interpreter work in the same team to ask for such a unreasonable cost to share it together later. The woman denied the fact and jump off from the office as if she wanted to escape. The manager gave me the replacement service but the money I lost for this unreasonable cost for interpretation never comes back. This is the evil man's photo along with this girl, Victoria Kuznetsova. I would appreciate it if you could post this photo to prevent further victims. Watch out for this young man in Kiev. He charges you $100 for just some hours interpretation.


Zinaida (Petrova?) (Tymen, Russia)

A few days ago a woman named "Zinaida" answered an ad I have on the site I am 43, a single father and have a 12 year old daughter who lives with me, and I cannot afford to be scammed. She says she is 27 and looks 19 in the pictures. She also does not address me by my first name in her responses. 

Thank you
Sincerely, James

Letter 2:

Hello my respondent.
I'm really glad that you answered to me for my letter. I think that you are very intelligent man according to your letter. I really like that you are interested in me and knowing more about me. Now I'll tell you about me, my life, my parents. As I said I am very simple girl but "with spice" as my mom said. My name is Zinaida. It is very rare name here in Russia. How do you like it, by the way? My mom's name is Irina and dad's is Andrey. I love them very much!!! We live very amicable family. I'm alone child in our family. I have no sisters nor brothers and I don't like this but my parents decided to have only one child in family. They love me so much... Sometimes I regret that I'm alone in family but not very often. I am almost 28 years now - my birthday is on the 15th of September. I like my birthdays and do you like yours? By the way when does your birthday will be? It's really interesting to me! Some words about place I live here. As you understood I'm from Russia. I live in the city of Tyumen. It's really good city. I was born here and I love my native city very much! It is not very far from Moscow. The time difference is two hours from it. Our city is not small but I already have despaired to search the person for life. It's population is about 600 thousand people. It is very beautiful and old ( born in 16 century). I like my city. I like to go for a walks on its streets, to visit museums. We with the girlfriends often visit cinemas and we look various films. I had some problems with my previous guys and now I decided to find somebody through the Internet. As you may be heard here in Russia it is a big  problem that people especially men are drinking too much alcohol. I hate this! So I was advised to write to somebody through Internet by my best girlfriend Marina. She works at the agency of acquaintances. She advised me to use this adress at Internet. I was sympathized by your profile, so I decided to write to you!!! You may ask if I wrote so much far from Russia but I always dreamed to visit USA. Who knows - may be someday I'll come to it!!! I like your country! I heard so much about it. It seems here to be a land of dream. America... So much of romantice in this word!!! I hope that you don't consider me too naivety. I understand that it's not everything good there but I love your country nevertheless! I hope that you can understand my letters not very bad because I'm not so great in English. I learned it in school and in university. But I had not much practice so I use sometimes translation programs. If you don't understand please say it to me - I'll try to write better. I have no computer at home - it's too expensive for our family to have it. But I have a computer at my boss cabinet. He let me to use it for my needs of Internet. He is good and I think that we are in good intentions. I work at cafe as manager. I earn pretty few money but I think that it is enough for me. I think that I am very happy but sometimes I feel too lonely. As you see I have very serious intentions to find my only best man through Internet. I hope that you are not bored with my story and will answer for my letter. If you are not against I'll ask some questions. I am very interested to know more about you. I want to know who are you, where do you work, may be something about your hobbies. Please tell me about your family, about place you live at now... About place where you was born. I really want to learn more about you. You may also ask me what you want - I'll try to answer for all of your questions! So I'll finish... I'll impatiently wait for your answer. I think that your letter will be very interesting. Your new friend from so far Russia - Zinaida.

p.s. I attached my photo. Please say me what do you think about I'm looking like.

Letter 3

Hi my friend.
I like your letter very much! I was not sure that you will write me back because you understood that I'm so far from you! I'm really glad!!! I can only say that you are so good respondent! Your letter was so warm that I decided to write back quite in time I got to the computer. Some words about the weather here in our dear city. Is it really interesting for you? As you understand the autumn is coming here and the weather is the same. It's enough cold already - about 15 degrees Celsium. I don't know how much by Farengeit it will be? The leaves at trees are almost yellow and red. I see - the autumn is coming already! The sun was very cold today. Very windy! That's good that there was not rainy. I think that the rain is a very bored thing.But sometimes the rain brings calmness to me. Do you like the rain? I like summer raining but not  autumn! Nevertheless autumn is a really great time I think! It is the time of poetry. I hope that you have heard about famous Boldin Autumns of our famous writer Aleksander Pushkin? I love all poems of him from those period! I'm too romantic person - that's not the best of me but it's my nature! Are you romantic person? You know I'm speaking too much about myself but I'm really glad to receive your answer for my letter! You seem to be so great person. I'm so glad that I found you! I'll try to tell you as much as you want about my current life. It's not various - work - home work, and weekends. That is all! I think that I live a very bored life! Our city is old and we with girlfriends often visit our museums. But most of all I prefer to visit cinemas. I love to see different movies (I heard films are called such in USA - I'm right?). But especially I like to see melodramas - is it right word - I'm not sure. A month ago I was so impressed by movie "Pearl Harbour". This is the film about history of your country. About how your heroic ancestors got a part in a war against fascism. I hate this word but this is the history of our country too! Did you hear about this movie? So I'd love to tell you some words about my favourites... I love to dance. You know - I often go to discos and I love to do this! I' have so good mood there - I can dance until the same mourning of the next day! That's really my hobby! Else I like sport very much. I love to go to the pool. I swim not bad so I spend much time there. My favourites... I like pop music a little, but mostly - classic. It gives me a very calm mood. I became so calm and self-assured that it seemed to me that I am so far from Earth...You know I like green colour - it seemed to me to be very calm color... As you see I tell much about myself. If I didn't answered for all your questions please recall me all of them - I'll try to answer! In turn I'd want to ask some questions about your favourites: your favourite color, hobbies, food. What is your favourite music? Movies? And else... Please don't be angry for me if I will write to you not every day. I have much work here - so I'm very busy sometimes. Often my boss send me to business trips. So do not lose me if I will not write during several days. I'll wait for your answer. I consider that we know more about each other with every letter.

I'll think of you. Zinaida.

P.S. If you want you can give me your phone number. I'd love to call you and to hear your voice. I can't save your letters here - so if I missed your phone number please repeat it for me!
