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 Yuriy Plotnikov, the Franchise Owner of Kogalymneftgaz, a Russian oil company. Due To ill Health I have been Esophageal Cancer, it has defiled all forms of medical treatment and according 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. Recently I received a bulk payment from Azerbaijan Ministry for my Last contract there. I instructed them specifically not to send the Funds to Russia, 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 these funds deposited with the Security Company and Disburse it secretly based on my 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 my instructions. I want you to understand my seriousness in this case and if you can handle this transaction. I have all the Necessary documents on hand. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation. Best Regards, Yuriy Plotnikov
