I contacted you primarily for your assistance in investing some huge amount. I am an Ethnic Russian, Ukraine National, a Businessman in the local gas sector, I am a strong supporter of one indivisible Ukraine and because of this views I am been punish by Pro-Russian allied in Ukraine. My entire asset has been seized by these Pro-Russian Rebels. I have $14.6 million cash secretly kept away which I want to transfer out of the country. I am seeking for your consent, to help me receive these funds and invest it. I wish to invest in Real Estate or any other profitable sector you may recommend.
This money is kept in the Red Cross safe facility here and waiting for a moment like this to transfer the money out to another country. I need to urgently transfer the funds out of the country because Russia Economy is in a recession and the ruble is crashing down. Still western sanction has not been able to change the behavior of the rebels and am afraid lots of people like me are going to be made a scapegoat. There is a huge capital flight and I want someone I could trust, that can help me receive the fund. If you accept, I will transfer the money to you where you will be the beneficiary.
I cannot personally invest such an amount of money at this moment, so I need someone to represent as the beneficiary. As a Russian-Ukraine businessman I have a 100% authentic means of transferring the money through diplomatic courier method.
I just need your acceptance/consent and all is done. For your honest assistance I will give to you 20% of the sum which is about 2.9 million and the remaining 80% is for me.
