 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?                                                        
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
