I am Alvaro Mendez, l work in a bank in Spain.I humbly solicit for your 
assistance and co-operation in a business transaction in my department. A
nationality of your country, LATE EDWARD ANDRZEJEWSKI, who used to work
with the  Shell Petroleum Development Company in Spain. until his death few
years ago  in a ghastly car crash which claimed his life and that of his wife
and  their children. All the occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their
lives. Since his  death,the bank has been expecting a next of kin to him to
come and claim his  money in the bank but up till this time of writing no
next-of-kin or  relative of the deceased has come forward to claim his money
with us.
After  these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name
over  the Internet. To locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by the
deceased before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank
where these huge deposits were lodged. Particularly, he left along the sum  of
US$4.8 M (Four Million, Eight Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in  a
bank in spain.the bank has issued a notice to provide the NEXT OF KIN or
have the account confiscated within the next few weeks now.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives, l decided to seek
your consent  to act as next of kin to the deceased since you bear the same
last name, so  that the proceeds of the account valued at US$4.8 M can be
paid to you and  then you and me can share the money 60% to me and 40%
to you. However, with my position, I can present you to the bank as the next
of kin to the deceased  claim the money as your inheritance fund. All I require from you is your  honest co-operation to enable us seeing this deal through. l trust you have the intergrity, maturity and sincerity to handle a transaction of this  magnitude.note that this transaction is 100% risk and hitch free. I guarantee  you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will  protect you and me from any breach of the law.
Please I will want you to send to me your telephone and fax numbers for easy
communication.send your response and enquiries to my private email address
which is
Best regards,
Alvaro Mendez.
