Franchise Owner of Yukos Engineering
Dear Sir/Madam,
I have sent you this mail because of the need to open discussions with 
you. I don't want you to misunderstand
 this offer in any aspect, if it is okay with you I ask for your full 
co-operation. I am Alexander Gusinsky, 
the Franchise Owner of Yukos Engineering and International Affiliate of 
Yukos Oil and Gas Company based in 
Russia. Due to ill Health I have been Esophageal Cancer, it has defiled 
all forms of medical treatment and 
ccording to the medical experts it is a terminal illness so I do not 
know how much longer I have to live. 
I never had any real friends in my lifetime because I never really 
cared for anyone but my business.
But now I know that there is more to live than making all the money in 
the world. However, certain unfolding 
events has made it very necessary  for me to seek your help, my company 
is fighting investigations and  
Bankruptcy due to the Yukos Oil problems in Russia, most of my assets 
were seized  due to this case.
Recently I received a bulk payment from South Africa Ministry for my 
last contract there. I instructed 
them specifically not to send the funds to Russia because of the 
problems, but that the funds should be 
deposited with a Finance and Security company in Europe on hold. A huge 
cash deposit of US$18,000,000.00 
(Eighteen Million Dollars) was domiciled with the Finance/Security 
Company overseas to my knowledge only. 
This is the last of my assets, now that my health has deteriorated so 
badly, I cannot do this 
Myself anymore, I therefore need you as a partner because you are a 
neutral party to help me collect this 
fund deposited with the security company and disburse it secretly based 
on instructions.
Because my time is short I have decided to give most of this money to 
charity organizations, as I want this 
to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. For all your good 
efforts you will receive 30% of the Funds 
and disburse the rest based on instructions. I want you to understand 
my seriousness in this case and if you 
can handle this transaction, kindly contact me via this email:, I have all 
the necessary documents on hand,
Please contact me ASAP so we can discuss more.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
Best Regards,
Alexander Gusinsky
