ATTENTION PLEASE ENDEAVOUR TO READ THIS CAREFULLY AND GET BACK TO ME ON MY PRIVATE E- MAIL ADDRESS BELOW firstname.lastname@example.org My name is Boris V.Volkov (MR), and an investor in one of the bigest oil Company here in MOSCOW. I have a very important proporal and a private offer for you and i know that it will profit us at the end of the day. Iam just asking for your partnership to re-profile some offshore investment funds worth over US$38., 000,000.00 (Thirty Eight Million United States Dollars). I am constrained however to withold most of the details for now. But in summary the invested funds are in a bank in western Europe, we need to terminate this investments and re-profile the funds over to you for certain reasons. This is due to the major problem between the Russia government and the Company which we are investor in Russia under (YUKOS OIL). This is a legitimate and risk free transaction, if we are agreed on the terms you will be paid 30% for "re-profiling and subsequent management of the funds" . If you are interested,please write back by email to email@example.com please with your trusted personal telephone numbers and email address and I will give you further details. Following our intention to carry out this laudable project expediently we however, succeeded in transferring part of this amount (money) precisely US$10M (Ten Million US Dollars) only into a Foreign Bank Account in CANADA, but the provider of the Account is up to some mischief and refused to comply with our earlier mutual agreement insisting that 50% of the total sum shall be hers and has to be paid into her account in CANADA. Knowing fully Well that due to the situation i find myself with the RUSSIAN government,i will comply with her intention.that her 50% should be deducted and be paided into her nominated Bank Account immediately to avoid any futher delay on this project.Believe and concluded that if in the firstsuccessful transfer of US$10M (Ten Million US$ Dollars) we were not compensated how then are we sure that when the balance of $38 million dollars (Thirty Eight Million Dollars) is transferred into her Account that we will be sure of our due compensation. Note that my LAWYER is presently in Europe for now due to this project,as soon as you get back to me with a positive result we WILL proceed on this project immediately.Your personal telephone number is required for proper communication please. Note that this proposal is not from my Company or my Company's proposal, but from an individual/person. Please keep this close to your chest as much as possible; we cannot afford any political problems. Write me back. I look forward to it. Your maximum confidencial is required on this investment, do not dispose this project. Best regard Vitalis B. Volkov. Private email : firstname.lastname@example.org
