Dear Investors & Buisness Minded People,You might think this is a junk mail and turn a deaf ear to my words, I want you to realise that the reality of it can never be empasised, you will find yourself in the world of luxury and the pursuit of self happiness, the tax involved isn't that much, all that is needed is your cooperation, smartness and honesty you will be rewarded accordingly, My name is Mohammed Akhbar, security aide to the late Alexander Valterovich Litvinenko, intelligence agent: born Voronezh, Soviet Union 30 August 1962; married (one son); died London 23 November 2006 after being poisoned.
Two days before his death Litvinenko, a disenchanted Russian Orthodox Christian, informed his father that he had converted to Islam: the actual conversion happened at a point during his sickness but before he knew he was going to die.Akhmed Zakayev,(who personally assigned me to Mr Litvinenko) Foreign Minister of Chechen government-in-exile who lived next door to Mr Litvinenko and considered him "as a brother", said: "He was read to from the Qur'an the day before he died and had told his wife and family that he wanted to be buried in accordance with Muslim tradition." Litvinenko accepted Islam mostly to show his solidarity with Chechen people, who he felt were brutally oppressed by Russians. Before his burial, prayers were said for Litvinenko at Regent's Park Mosque. Litvinenko's reported conversion to Islam and the related wish for Muslim funeral rites were recognized by his father.
So you can see to me he was a muslim brother as well as my boss.What I got to know(about funds in millions of pounds right here in the uk in which I now have total possession of all necessary documentation to claim these funds) over the last few days of his life I am so sure that no one else knows.For that reason I am currently in hiding for the sake of my family.
, i have a prosperous business plan which will be beneficial to us, if you have the above values and consider yourself worthy enough, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
This transaction is a multi million dollar contract that needs urgent attention from a reputable person, your confidentiality is highly needed due to business strategies, disclosing this information will ruin our entitlement in the future.
Yours sincerely, Mo.Ak. _________________________________________________________________ Find Love This New Year With match.com! http://msnuk.match.com
