Good day,
I am Nikolay Sintsov,personal assistant to Mikhail Khodorkovsky,once rated as
the richest man in Russia and owner of YUKOS OIL (Russian largest oil
company),chairman CEO: Menatep SBP Bank (a well reputable financial institution
with its branches all over the world).
I have a profiling amount in an excess of US$40.5M, which I seek you to
accommodate for me. You will be rewarded with 40% of the total sum for your
partnership. Can you handle this?
As his personal assistant, I was authorized to transfer money of an American
oil merchant for his last oil deal with my boss  Mikhail Khodorkovsky.
The funds  have  since left the shores of America to a European private
financial  institution where the final crediting is to be carried out.
While I was on the process, my boss got arrested for his involvement in
politics by financing the leading and opposing political parties (the Union of
Right Forces, led by Boris Nemtsov, and Yabloko, a liberal/social democratic
party led by Gregor Yavlinsky), which posed as a threat to President Vladimir
Putin's second Tenure as Russian president. 
Since then, I have placed on hold all transactions concerning this amount. 
You can catch more of the story on this website:
All I need from you is to stand as the beneficiary of the above mentioned sum
and  I will  re-profile the funds with your data, which will enable the
financial firm transfer the sum to you. I have decided to use this sum to
relocate to the American continent and never to be connected to any of Mikhail
Khodorkovsky conglomerates, presently I am in Burkina faso, West Africa,for a
hide out,as it's a remote country. 

The transaction has to be concluded as soon and as I confirm your readiness to
proceed with me, I will provide you with details.
My private email below; or
Thank you very much.
Mr.Nikolay Sintsov
