Good Day,

Accept my deepest apology if I have encroached into your privacy by this unsolicited correspondence. It is coming to you in view of a circumstantial inevitability. I am a Senior Legal Representative in the Madrid office of the Afinsa Bienes Tangibles, the World\'s largest Stamp dealer. The Spanish Public Prosecutor has recently accused the firm of embezzling ?1.75bn from almost 143,000 investors in a massive pyramid scheme built on what it considered worthless stamps. This has really generated great controversy as it is now considered the biggest scam in the entire Spanish history. See more of the news here:

Having Represented the Group legally for over Nine years, I see an unfortunate end to all of us particularly as we were not a party to the said scam because authority flowed from top to down, and we were always serving in tune with instructions flowing from above. In the bid to survive, I intend to transfer the sum of Nine Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars ($9,500,000.00) overseas in an alliance with one of my Honourable colleague as all we see now is a very bleak future. This forms the subject matter of this letter.

We have perfected plans to include you as one of the suppliers of raw materials to our firm with the above sum of money due for transfer over to you as payment for contracts executed for the Afinsa Group. I am personally a signatory to Contractor\'s Fund in a Financial Institution here in Spain hence it will be very easy to have the money transferred overseas in your names. We will employ every conceivable legal means to ensure we attain a hitch - free transfer of the Nine Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars ($9,500,000.00) into any account you will nominate outside Spain for the purpose of receiving the fund.

Please reach me for further details via any of my private emails :( ) to enable us discuss on how we will proceed because we have mapped out a strategy that will enable us transfer the fund overseas within 7 working days with your cooperation. Thank you for your urgent attention.

Yours Truly,
Barrister. Alfred Fernandez
