Rating: This is a fairly obvious scam letter, however the amount of money involved might just tempt someone.. so I have posted this letter on Wikipedia on the page referenced.. Whether they will allow it to stay is a question as Wikipedia is more of an encyclopedia reference than a scam prevention site.,2933,181929,00.html

Dear friend,

partnership. Can you be my partner on this?


As a personal treasurer to him, authority was handed over to me to transfer some money to an American oil merchant for his last oil deal with my boss Mikhail Khodorkovsky. the funds is still with a PRIVATE BANK in EUROPE where the final crediting is expected to be carried out. While I Was on the
process, My Boss got arrested for his Involvement in Politics by 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 Gregory Yavlinsky).
