Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled
"Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for
my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner
or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly
come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of
money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed.
If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage
to read more about 419 fraud.

My name is Mr. Paul Edward, I am an administrative officer working with a diplomatic fiduciary security company in Gulf Region. My duty involves administrative documentation of deposits in the company.
During one of my official trips to Russia, i was introduced to Mikhail Khodorkovsky once rated as the richest man in Russia and owner of YUKOS OIL (Russian largest oil company), chairman CEO: Menatep SBP Bank (a well reputable financial institution) and hence we became close friends. He later engaged my services to assist him make some deposits for safe keeping on his behalf, shortly before he was arrested in October 2003.
Now I have his instructions to look for a reliable partner/investor who can receive and manage the fund for him until his ordeal with his Government is over. He was 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 Gregor Yavlinsky), which posed a threat to president Vladimir Putin's second tenure as Russian President.

Mr. Paul Edward.
