Example of a “Russian Connection” email
I am Andrei Raz***hov, I have a business brief which might interest you on the instruction of a business tycoon in Moscow whose business interest spans crude oil refining, mining, construction, real estate and tourism.
Over the past years the policies of the Kremlin has not been favorable towards his business and more importantly towards his person who seem to have a different political view from that of the Kremlin. Without boring you with politics of Russia, I will go straight to the point to ask for your cooperation to discreetly re-profile funds worth 52.2 Million euro own by this business tycoon from its present location via a bank in eastern Europe to a new investment location.
You will be paid 8% for your ‘management consultancy fees’, if we are able to reach terms. If you are interested, please write back to my senior colleague Mr. Andrev Sl**vik at **** and provide your telephone number and private e-mail address and he will provide further details.
Write back, we wait for your response.
Really if you get anything in the email from someone you do not know as an established bank that wants your routing number, credit card number, or anything that you don’t want a crack head to have…..DON’T FRICKEN GIVE IT AWAY.
