Dear Comrade,
I am Comrade Juan Balakov personal assistant to Mikhail Khodorkovsky once rated as
the richest man in Russia and owner of 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, which I seek you to accommodate
for me. You will be rewarded with 4% of the total sum for your partnership.
Can you handle this?

As his personal assistant, I was authorized to transfer money of an American oil merchant
for his last oil deal with my boss Mikhail Khodorkovsky.
The funds have since left the shores of America to a European private bank where the final
crediting is 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 posed as a threat to
President Vladimir Putin Second Tenure as Russian president. Since then, I have placed on
hold all transactions concerning this amount.

All I need from you is to stand as the beneficiary of the abovementioned sum and I will
re-profile the funds with your name, which will enable the European bank transfer the sum
to you. I have decided to use this sum to relocate to the American continent and never to
be connected to any of Mikhail Khodorkovsky conglomerates. The transaction has to be
concluded soon and as I confirm your readiness to conclude the transaction with me,
I will provide you with details.      
Juan Balakov.
