Dear Friend,
I have a re-profiling amount in an excess of US$55 Million Dollars, which I seek your partnership 
in accommodating for me. You will be rewarded with 30% of the total sum for your partnership. Can 
you be my partner on this?

and owner of the following companies: Chairman CEO: Yukos Oil Corporation, 31a, Dubininskaya 
str.Moscow 115054, Russia(Russian Most Largest Oil Company)Chairman CEO: Menatep SBP Bank (A well 
reputable financial institution with its branches all over the world)
The documents of the above funds in question was handed over to me to be used in payment of an 
American oil merchant for his last oil deal with my boss Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Already the funds 
have been deposited with a bank outside Russia, where the final crediting is expected to be carried 
out. While I was on the process, My Boss was arrested for his involvement on politics in 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 treat to FORMER 
President Vladimir Putin second tenure as Russian President. You can catch more of the story on 

All I need from you is to stand as the beneficiary of the above quoted sum and I will arrange for 
the documentation which will enable the Bank transfer the sum to you. I have decided to use this 
sum to relocate to U.A.E continent and never to be connected to any of Mikhail Khodorkovsky 
conglomerates so as to free my self from the hands of the present government. The transaction has 
to be concluded in 7 days upon the receipt of your response to me. As soon as I get your 
willingness to comply I will give you moredetails and also tell you what I shall require from you. 
Finally I will let you know my location in Europe and where this fund is at present for security
