Dear Friend,

I know this is an unconventional way of introducing a big and profitable
business deal, but I however want you to take your time to read my letter
carefully, you will understand the necessity for my action. I got your email
address from the Ministry of Commerce Directory. I have a profiling sum in an
excess of $25M (Twenty Five Million United States Dollars) which I seek your
partnership in accommodating for me.

I am David Isaakovich, a Personal Assistant to Mikhail Khodorkovsky the richest
man in Russia and owner of the following companies: Chairman CEO: YUKOS OIL
(Russian Most Largest Oil Company) Chairman CEO: Menatep SBP Bank (A reputable
financial institution with its branches all over the world).

The documents of the above funds in question were handed over to me by my boss
Mr. Mikhail Khodorkovsky for safe keeping. The said funds has been in fixed
deposit for five years in a Bank in the United Kingdom (name of the Bank
undisclosed for now), before the fund was deposited, my boss has long given me
Power of Attorney to carry out financial dealings on his behalf and that of the
company before he was arrested for his involvement in politics especially
financing the leading and opposing political parties. You can catch more of the
story on this in the below link;

I have been contacted by the Bank as the P.A. to Mr. Mikhail Khodorkovsky that
the fund has matured hence ready for profiling. All I need from you is to stand
as the beneficiary of the above quoted sum. With the Power of Attorney, I will
arrange for the documentation at my expense which will enable transfer of the
sum to you. You will be rewarded with 30% for your partnership, 5% has been
mapped out for any expenses that might be incurred during the transaction while
15% will be spent on taxes in your country. I have decided to use my share of
this transaction to relocate and invest on the Real Estate Venture. The
transaction has to be concluded within a week. As soon as I get your willingness
to comply through my most private email address: , I
will give you more details, sites for verification, your role, how legal and
genuine this transaction is and as we progress you shall see all the legal
