Do you know of any Mr. Wayne? Who was working on contract 
with a South African multinational Oil & Gas company here in United 
Kingdom? He shares same last name with you. In summer 2001, Mr. Wayne, 
his wife and their three children were involved in an auto-crash while 
returning to London from France on a holiday trip. Unfortunately, all 
occupants of the SUV they were traveling died on the spot. Since that 
unfortunate accident I have made several enquiries to his embassy to 
locate any of his extended relatives and this has also proved 
unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to 
track his last name over the Internet, to locate any exact matched 
surname and that was how I found your contact. My deceased client had 
an account balance with a bank valued at about Â4.9million, the bank 
has issued a notice to me demanding that I provide Mr. Wayneâs next of 
kin or have the account closed and the funds absorbed. 

Since I have 
been unsuccessful in locating my client's relatives; I now seek your 
consent to present you as the next of kin of my deceased client since 
you have the same last name so that the proceeds of his account Â4.9
million can be paid to you. You and I can then share the money 60% to 
me and 40% for you. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable 
us seeing this project through. I guarantee that this will be executed 
under a legitimate/risk-free arrangement that will protect you and me 
from any breach of the law. I await your positive response that MUST 
include your private telephone number; I will call to discuss this 
matter if it interests you. Be advised to reply strictly via my private 
email address:

Best regards 

Mrs. Victoria Tay.
