Peters Williams. I am Peters Williams 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 in the amount of US$46 Million (Forty six million United States Dollars). I will give you the details after I have received your response signifying your interest in this project. In summary, the funds are still in the security deposit of Bank Menatep. Also, I will instruct you on how you would open a bank account in Europe to transfer the total amount as requested by my boss (Mikhail Khordokovsky). This is a legitimate transaction. You will be paid 20% as your commission/compensation for your active efforts and contribution to the success of this transaction. You can catch more of the story on this website below or you can watch more of CNN or BBC to get more news about my boss: If you are interested, please do indicate by providing me with your full names, email address, confidential telephone number, fax number and I will provide further details and instructions. Please keep this confidential as we cannot afford more political problems. Kindly send me your response as soon as possible to my confidential address: I look forward to it. Regards, Peters Williams.
