Subject: ITS ME ALEXANDER
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 cooperation.I am Alexander Gusinsky,the
Franchise Owner of Yukos Engineering an international
affiliate of Yukos Oil and Gas Company based in Russia.
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 life 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 bankcrupcy 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 be deposited with
a Finance and Security company in Europe on hold.A huge cash
deposit of Eighteen Million dollars was domiciled with the a
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 must
disburse the rest based on instructions. I want you to understand my
seriousness in this case and if you can handle the job kindly contact
me via this email: firstname.lastname@example.org I have all the
necessary documents on hand, please contact me asap So we can discuss
more.Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
