Dear Sir/ Madam,

My name is Benjamin Alpern. I am 58 years old, from Canada, semi retired and presently facing one 
of the biggest challenges of my life. I am honest, determined and ambitious to a reasonable degree.

I am a close cousin of Ruth Alpern and I have worked as a consultant in procurements, supply and 
logistics mainly on supply contracts to the Far East, Asia and the Middle East.

I am in search of a business partner for the purpose of logistics and assistance towards the 
administration and release of a huge amount of money, (USD 16.1m).

Details of origin of funds will be forwarded to highly interested individual. I am willing to offer 
a very reasonable percentage on this venture for all assistance/logistics.

My offer is legitimate and above board I just happen to be one of the Fortunate victims of the 
Bernard Madoff fraud scandal.

Regards,

Mr. Benjamin Alpern.
