Dear Friend,

I have a profiling amount in an excess of US$55 Million Dollars, which I seek your partnership in accommodating for me. You will be rewarded with 30% of the total sum for your partnership. Can you be my partner on this?

I am MR Arkadyevich Abramovich the personal secretary to Mikhail Khodorkovsky the richest man in Russia and owner of the following companies: Chairman CEO: Yukos Oil Corporation, 31a, Dubininskaya str.Moscow 115054, Russia(Russian Most Largest Oil Company)Chairman CEO: Menatep SBP Bank (A well reputable financial institution with its branches all over the world)

The documents of the above funds in question was handed over to me to be used in payment of an American oil merchant for his last oil deal with my boss Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Already the funds have been deposited with a bank outside russia, where the final crediting is expected to be carried out. While I was on the process, My Boss was arrested for his involvement on politics in financing the leading and opposing political parties (the Union of Right Forces, led by Boris Nemtsov, and Yabloko, a liberal/social democratic party led by Gregor Yavlinsky) which poses treat to President Vladimir Putin second tenure as Russian president. You can catch more of the story on this:

All I need from you is to stand as the beneficiary of the above quoted sum and I will arrange for the documentation which will enable the Bank transfer the sum to you. I have decided to use this sum to relocate to U.A.E continent and never to be connected to any of Mikhail Khodorkovsky conglomerates.The transaction has to be concluded in 7 days before Mikhail Khodorkovsky is out on bail. As soon as I get your willingness to comply I will give you more details and also tell you what i shall require from you. Finally i will let you know my location in europe and where this fund is at present.

Thank you very much
MR Arkadyevich Abramovich

Gosh, Arkady, I'm pretty busy right now with our own collapsing economy, but I'll see what I can do.

As usual, I've altered the e-mail addresses of the alleged sender of this e-mail, but the recipient list is unchanged. I received two copies of this e-mail. I wonder how many other potential beneficiaries this thing went out to. I have no idea what "poses treat" means. Apparently, it's bad.

At least this time they came up with an excuse for why the e-mail addresses aren't from the same country the money's supposed to be coming from.

Man, you're just rolling in the rubles. They'll make a nice addition to your collection of international currency, there. How long before you have cash from every country in the world?
