($15,100,000.00) (Fifteen million,one hundred thousand 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? Already the funds
have left the shore of Russia through diplimatic means to a European Holding

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
Second Tenure as Russian president. You can catch more of the story on These

These funds are secured in as escrow account in finanacial institution in the
United Kingdom and can be transferred from the escrow account to your personal

receive the funds for disbursement amongst the two of us at a ration i stated

documents in relation to this bears my name to avoid the search by the
government, so you need not entertain any worries.
