Subject: HELLO..

Dear Friend,

I John Griffn, representing 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 over US$423 million. I will give the

details, but in summary, the funds are coming via private bank and this is a legitimate transaction. You will be paid 10% for your

"management fees".

If you are interested, provide me with your confidential telephone number, fax number and email address and I will provide further

details and instructions.Please keep this confidential; we can't afford more political problems. Finally, please note that this must be concluded within two

weeks once we agree on terms.

Write me back. I look forward to it.

Regards,

Jojohngriffn51@gmail.com
