Description:

One page autograph letter (8 1/4 x 10 13/4 inch) in ink. Addressed from a prison somewhere in Spain, dated 7-2-1912. In the letter, a 'S. Solovieff' writes an unnamed correspondent offering him a modest fortune if the correspondent will provide the assistance that Solovieff requests. Solovieff states that he is a Russian banker who was arrested in London and is now a prisoner in Spain. He asks the correspondent to travel to Spain and pay for his trial costs so that his suitcase can be released to him. In the suitcase is a 'secret pocket' that has a 'document' in it that will allow access to $480,000 that Solovieff has in America. If the correspondent assists Solovieff he will receive up to one-third of the money, or $180,000. Other examples of this scam letter still in existence. Apparently how this fraud worked was that Solovieff also provided correspondents with forged newspaper clippings, said to be from English newspapers, proving that his situation was as he described it and that he was indeed in possession of 5 million rubles. If the correspondent cabled back as requested, Mr. Solovieff told them that the first step in obtaining their 'modest fortune' was for them to travel to Spain and pay an associate of Solovieff the amount of $2,000 so that his suitcase could be released from the prison storehouse. Other letters with the same wording as this one here described exist, but bear the signatures of different people. It is not known how often, if at all, recipients of such letters fell for the deception. The letters were apparently designed to take advantage of 'rich Americans'. Bookseller Inventory #
