Infamous 'Nigerian scam' gets Russian spin

What is Abacha and the jailed Russian oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky have in common? Yes thats right they both inspire scammers. Baiting guillible foreigners in the name of the despot has been Nigerian scammers classic template since the dictator kicked the bucket in 1998 (who hasn't recieved one email from Mariam Abacha or his son Mohammed?) but now the Russians have put a new spin on it and don't be surprise if you recieve a email from Leila Khodorkovsky or Larissa Sosnitskaya requesting your help to transfer/invest US$45 million (euro37 million) of the tycoon's money.

"Dear friend, I got your reliable contact from my husband's business diary ..." begins one letter from "Leila Khodorkovsky," claiming to be the billionaire's wife — whose actual name is Inna. The letter requests assistance investing US$45 million (euro37 million) of the tycoon's money and promises compensation.
