be rewarded with 30% of the total sum for your partnership. Can you be my
partner on this? Already the funds have left the shore of Russia through
diplimatic means to a European Holding financial institution 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 posed a great treat to President Vladimir Putin

the United Kingdom and can be transferred from the escrow account to your
personal or business account once you have assured me of your ability and
