I'm rich...

Just got the following letter in the mail. I can't believe the extent of my luck. Apparently, the fallout from the Khodorkovsky scandal has much wider and more sinister reprocussians than was previously thought. Today, an English lawyer named Allen Fox wrote me with a proposition to invest $46,000,000 (Forty-six million dollars!) from Khodorkovsk's slush fund into Belarusian projects. I don't know how political these projects would have to be but the deal is that he would put this money in my bank account and for basically doing nothing but agreeing to give him access to my numbers, I stand to make 9.2 MILLION DOLLARS FOR MYSELF!!!!!

For the life of me, I can't even figure out where they got my name from but for sure the sheer professionalism and intricacy of detail in the letter leads me to believe that this is in fact the real thing. Whoopee! Hurrah! I am so happy that I keep up with the Russian and Belarusian news because otherwise, I might not have recognized what an amazing deal this is. Really, I am… breathless right now. I wonder where I am going to spend it all...

    Dear FriendDear

    My name is Barrister Allen Fox of AKIN Gump Law Frim in London,a
    senior
    Advocate of Law and a personal solicitor to Mr. Boris Mikhail
    Khodorkovsky,
    the arrested Chairman/ CEO of Yukos Oil and Bank Menatep SPB in Russia
    who
    is presently in jail.

    I have the documents of a large amount of funds which he handed
    over
    to me before he was detained and tried in Russia for financing
    political
    parties (the Union of Right Forces, led by Boris Nemtsov and Yabloko, a
    Liberal/ Social Democratic Party led by Gregor Yavlinsky) opposed to
    the
    Government of Mr. Vladmir Putin, the current President of
    Russia,thereby
    leading to the freezing of his finances and assets.

    After searching through the books of your Country's Chambers of
    Commerce
    and Industries, I am contacting you to assist me to Re-profile the
    funds
    and equally invest same on his behalf. The total amount of funds to be
    re-profiled
    is Forty Six Million United State Dollars (USD$46,000,000.00) and you
    will
    be paid 20% for your "Management Fees".

    This is a legitimate transaction. If you are interested, please write
    back by mail and provide me with your confidential telephone number,
    fax
    number and email address and I will provide further details and
    instructions.

    Please keep this very confidential; we can't afford more political
    problems.
    Finally, please note that this must be concluded within two weeks.
    Please
    write back promptly. Write me back through this personal email address
    (barr_allen15@yahoo.com.hk)
    I look forward to it.

    I will send you the necessary details and relevant documents.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Barr.Allen Fox

You should forward that email to both the Scotland Yard and the FSB.

I hope you are intending to spend some of that on your good friends who have always stuck by you through thick and thin.

Adam re your last posting there is an Akin Gump Firm in London, I just looked it up..........

Here is their email address: londoninfo@akingump.com. Email them a copy of the letter you got and see what gives.

I used the U.K. version of Google.

Hope it helps

I think mate you are "being had" pardon the pun! I have several of these emails sent to me mostly from Nigeria.........it is a well-known scam..........but investigate by asking these people if Barr.Allen whatever is one of theirs!

You think so? C'mon, it seems so real...

Do you know how many of these scams i get? And what is more, the biggest irony is that the real lawyer for Khodorkovski is a guy named Robert Amsterdam and if you look closly at the link I made on Khodorkovsk's name, the article I reference was written by Amsterdam himself. Pretty cool, huh?
