Dear Friend, I am Larisa Sosnitskaya and I represent Mr. Mikhail Khodorkovsky the former C.E.O of Yukos Oil Company in Russia. I have a very sensitive and confidential brief from this top oligarch to ask for your partnership in re-profiling funds in the amount of US$46 Million (Forty six million United States Dollars). I will give you the details after I have received your response signifying your interest in this project. In summary, the funds are still in the security deposit of a reputable bank in Europe. Also, I will instruct you on how you would contact and open a bank account in the corresponding bank in Europe in your name so as to transfer the total amount as requested by my boss(Mikhail Khodorkovsky) to your own account. This is a legitimate transaction. You will be paid 20% as your commisson/compensation for your active efforts and contribution to the success of this transaction. You can watch more on CNN or BBC to get more news about my boss and i will provide you with various websites for you to catch more stories: If you are interested, please do indicate by providing me with your full names, email address, confidential telephone number, fax number and I will provide further details and instructions. Please keep this confidential as we cannot afford more political problems. Kindly send me your response as soon as possible to my confidential address. I look forward to it. Kindest Regards, Larisa Sosnitskaya NB, You can view these websites to read more stories about my boss: http://www.yukos.com/ http://edition.cnn.com/2005/WORLD/europe/05/31/khodorkovsky/index.html http://www.mbktrial.com/ http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/3213505.stm http://www.sourcewatch.org/indexphp?title=Mikhail_B._Khodorkovsky http://www.nndb.com/people/633/000025558/
