Dear Friend , I am Mrs.Ruth Madoff, wife of bernard madoff. I am actually going through some kind of difficult time with my family right now, as my husband is at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, New York City. My husband Sentencing is scheduled for June 16, 2009 and he is likely to face a maximum sentence of 150 years in prison and $170 billion in restitution, so there is need for me to move out a lot of my personal funds and personal belongings around the world , particularly from outside America, but i need somebody to trust now, because i cannot receive funds here in America right now. I would need your help in acquiring some properties and keeping some large cash amount for me. but first i would prefer to chat with you either on yahoo chat or Skype. if you are not comfortable with yahoo then write me ,so we can communicate via email. This is very urgent, i would have to entrust a large amount of money into your hands and some personal valuables. But this would have to be very confidential, just between me and you, because the press are after me and my husband name all over the headlines, because of his Wall street business. Anyway! don't be scared about the risk, it is a very safe deal i can assure you of your confidentiality. Yours Sincerely Mrs. Ruth Alpern Madoff Email Contact: email@example.com
