Dear Friend, 

I tried to contact you few minutes ago but to no avail, it appears your listed contact number is 
not active. I got your contacts from the trade department of your country's Consular office here in 
London. I know this is an unconventional way of introducing a business, but if you can take your 
time to read my letter carefully, you will understand the necessity for my action. I am Van 
Riebeeck, a UK citizen by naturalization. I have a profiling amount in the value of $10.7M (Ten 
Million, Seven Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) which I seek your partnership in 
accommodating for investment purposes with you.





The payment documents of the above funds in question was handed over to me to be used in payment of 
an American oil merchant for his last oil deal with my boss Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s  Yukos Oil 
Company Russian. Already the funds have been deposited with a Canadian bank (undisclosed for now), 
where the final crediting is expected to be carried out. While I was on the process, My Boss got 
arrested for his involvement on political financing and opposing the government of Vladimir Puti. 
You can catch more of the story on this link ( 
and possibly contact me urgently for arrangement to transfer the amount to you. The American oil 
merchant and his family was among the victims of Hurricane Katrina. I will detail you on the issue 
once I have your response but be rest assured that your government in United Kingdom are aware of 
this matter and advice me your contact for investment of this fund jointly with you .


Thanks for your attention.


Van Riebeeck.
