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 
Engineering and International Affiliate of Yukos Oil and Gas Company based in Russia. Due to ill 
I have been Esophageal Cancer, it has defiled all forms of medical treatment and according to the 
experts it is a terminal illness so I do not know how much longer I have to live. I never had any 
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 
company in Europe on hold. A huge cash deposit ofUS$18,000,000.00 (Eighteen Million Dollars) was 
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 funds 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 
kindly contact me Via this email:, I have all the necessary documents on 
Please contact me ASAP so we can discuss more.

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

Best Regards,
Alexander Gusinsky
