Dear Friend,

I was reading through a web page and found your profile interesting
while searching for a possible partner following an opportunity that will
be of immense benefit to both of us, if pursued to its logical
conclusion. Although, I do not know you in person but I do maintain my late
father's-philosophy that business are people and contacts. Business is
always based on trust and open mindedness, and it is on this note that I
act. I am Mr. Marinchenko Alexander a personal treasurer to Mikhail
Khodorkovsky, Presently in Russia and worked in the following companies:
Chairman CEO: 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$100.5M (One Hundred and
Five Million United States Dollars) which I seek your Partnership in
accommodating for me only and invest same in your country privately for
mutual benefit. I have agreed to employ your services since you are in no
way associated with Yukos Oil & Gas company, to assist receive some
funds for safe keeping and for onward investment in your country on my
behalf, as our assets have been frozen in Russia and while excess of
US$100.5M is just lying there, we are unable to liquidate them, or use them
as guarantee for payment of taxes inflicted on us by the government. I
have decided to use your able self to realize our business you will be
rewarded with 4% of the total sum for your partnership. Can you be my
partner on this? Before my boss arrest I was a personal consultant to
him, authority was handed over to me in transfer of money of an American
oil merchant for his last oil deal with my boss Mikhail Khodorkovsk
Already the funds have left the shore of Russia to a European private
Bank where the final crediting is expected 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 poses a treat to President
Vladimir Putting Second Tenure as Russian president. Please take a moment
of your very busy schedules to read about it on the following internet
 All I need from you is to stand as the beneficiary of the above quoted
Sum and I will re-profile the funds in your names so as to turn away
Russian authorities from us since you are in no way associated with Yukos
Oil & Gas nor Mr. Mikhail Khodorkovsky and his associates, which will
enable The European bank transfer the sum to you. I have decided to use
this Sum to relocate and never to be connected to any Of Mikhail
Khodorkovsky Conglomerates. As Soon as I confirm your readiness to conclude
the Transaction with me, I will provide you with the details. Humbly
send in your Letter of Acceptance and a brief background description of
you via this private email address only:
