Mrs. Ruth Madoff
West, Liverpool,
My Great Compliments,
I'm Mrs. Ruth Madoff, 67, wife to Mr. Bernard L. Madoff, of Bernard L. Madoff 
Investment Securities LLC, who pleaded guilty to operating a multimillion-dollar 
Ponzi scheme, worth up $826 million, according to a document filed with a 
federal court on Friday 13th March 2009.
My husband, after pleading guilty to all 11 criminal counts in one of Wall 
Street's biggest swindles was sent to jail Thursday 12th March 2009.
Now the Federal investigators in the USA are working around the clock to freeze 
all my assets, fearing that I'm trying to flee the country which I have done 
shortly after my husband was sentenced, I have $23 million in my name beyond 
their reach.
The Securities and Exchange Commissions are working with federal prosecutors in 
Manhattan to prepare a filing asking a judge to formally freeze all of my assets 
as soon as possible.
My husband deposited the sum of (USD$9Million) in a Finance Firm in Europe some 
years ago in my name, I need you to collect this funds and distribute it to both 
of us since the Federal investigators are working around the clock to freeze all 
my assets. Meanwhile all documents related to transfer of this fund to your 
account is with the bank
Presently, Im in a hide out here in UK as the Federal investigators as well the 
Securities and Exchange Commissions are looking for me to freeze my entire asset 
as well prosecute me like my husband.
Please reply as soon as possible as there's not much time. Upon your interest, 
i'll like you to proceed with the bank. Please do send me your contact details 
as I will like to prepare legal documents with my lawyer before we commence on 
this transaction.
Please keep this transaction confidential for now. You can read my story on this 
God bless you.
Best Regards,
Mrs. Ruth Madoff
