Partner 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: email@example.com Best regards Mrs. Victoria Tay. firstname.lastname@example.org
