Dear Sir, I am Dieter Plaumann and I represent Mr. Mikhail Khordokovsky the former C.E.O of Yukos Oil Company in Russia. I have a very sensitive and confidential brief from this top (oligarch) to ask for your partnership in re-profiling funds over US$450 million. I will give the details, but in summary, the funds are coming via Bank Menatep. This is a legitimate transaction. You will be paid 4% for your "management fees". If you are interested, please write back by email; firstname.lastname@example.org and provide me with your confidential telephone number, fax number and email address and I will provide further details and instructions. Please keep this confidential; we canít afford more political problems. Finally, please note that this must be concluded within two weeks. Please write back promptly. Write me back. I look forward to it. Regards D. Plaumann
