Dear Friend. I am Mr. Hermanns Karl-Wilhelm living in England but my nationality is Canadian. I was the manager bills and exchange at the foreign remittance department of a firm in Europe . The sum of $105m US dollars (One Hundred and Five Million United States dollars) is in the firm safety deposit vault that belongs to one of our foreign customer Mr. Andreas, who died along with his entire family on 31st July 2000 in a ghastly plane crash in western German city of Moenchengladbach . See the link = http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his consignment because the management cannot release it unless somebody comes as the next of kin to the deceased with the right documents as indicated in our firm guidelines but unfortunately I learnt that all his family died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. Since all efforts my me to reach any of his relative has been to no avail, i decided to use the deceased surname name to check for any email it can attract from Google search and your email popped out and after several other trails your email still popped out so i am reaching you so you can come forward and collect your consignment from your late relative. The consignment was deposited in the firm since 1999 and from the firm policy after a reasonable time frame when nobody comes for collection after the expiring date paid on safe keeping on the consignment; the consignment can become the property of the government/the firm. I do not want the consignment to revert into the hands of the government or in the firm but form the way proceedings are going it will revert into their hands, so i have decided to reach you so you can go forward and claim what i think is rightfully yours and since i have the documents you need to claim the consignment once you tender the documents then you can have it easily. I have all the information of this deposit since i had a very nice official relationship with the deceased and I am willing to give to you all info as the next of kin and also i do hope once you have the consignment you will act like your late relative who was a philanthropist and a member of the Helicopter Society and the Institute of Electronic & Electrical Engineers. This is the third mail am sending to you and if i do not get any reply from you then i will accept the fact that you do not want to claim the consignment or you have not been able to check your mail but in anyways your time is running out in claiming the consignment. I have all the information of this deposit and i can only give them to you once we have established communication. Please reach me through this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org for further corresponding on your consignment. Have a blessed day, Karl Hermanns
