Attention: Peter Engels,
As accredited and experienced financial managers, we would like to inform you that winning prizes are always in bonds and Certified Bank Drafts in the paying bank and no one has access to these funds until they are lodged in their bonafide recipients` designated bank accounts, wherever they may be, around the world. It will only be accessible by the recipient when it has finally been released by the paying bank. This is only possible when the recipient or his/her assigned Attorney here from our Legal Dept has signed the Release order.
We have confirmed you and your company as the genuine and bonafide owner of the winning e-mail, by processing your winning fund documents and verifying vis-à-vis the winning e-mail, and your winning prize will be remitted to your designated bank account as you will provide in the PAYMENT SCHEME FORM B6 after the Notarzation is done in your name at the High Court of Justice – Madrid SPAIN. We do not charge you for our services. This however, does include the cost of the “Legalization/Notarization” of your winning fund documents at the High Court of Justice – Madrid SPAIN to obtain an Anti -Terrorism / Money Laundering Certificate, thereby legalizing the transfer of such a huge amount from this country in accordance with the Tarieven (BTW Tarief) Provisions in the Spainish Constitution, as ratified in 2002.
This Mandatory Notaries fee €610.00, you will have to pay for, yourself, upfront for the aforementioned certificate to be issued in your name, which is a prerequisite for the signing of the Release Order of your winning prize. This is as directed / instructed by the United Nations Security Council and European Monetary Union (EMU) Council respectively to all EU member states banks and financial institutions since after the Sept. 11th 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States, over any money that is above Three hundred thousand U.S dollars (US$ 300,000.00) that is in remittance within and outside Europe. This idea was meant to track down the activities of terrorists and money launderers around the globe.
You are advice to make the payment of the obligatory “Legalization/Notarization” Fee of €610.00 (Six Hundred and Ten Euro only), before we would proceed in concluding the documentary procedures and your winning prize subsequently remitted to your designated bank account which you will provide. This is the only and same amount you will pay at the High Court of Justice – Madrid SPAIN for the “Legalization/Notarization” of your winning documents. We advice onceagain, that you make the payment for the Legalization/Notarization as directed below so the appointed Attorney from our legal department can proceed with the process as soon as posible, to avoid any further delay.
You are to send the Mandatory Notaries fee €610.00 (Six Hundred and Ten Euro only) through WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER SERVICE www.westernunion.com in the name of our receving Officer:
FIRST NAME: FRANC
LAST NAME: LIMOH.
ADDRESS: CDON JAIME I nº 11 2º 50.003 MADRID – SPAIN.
The Western Union Transfer Confirmation Receipt of the Mandatory Notaries fee €610.00 should be sent via fax or as email attachment.
We hope, this will serve the purpose for which it has been communicated.

Can’t find it in Google, but this email has ALL the earmarks of a scam and smells to high heaven. Unless, of course, you know the lawyer and have done business with him.
