Now that Spain's standard of living has plummeted to Nigerian levels, we shouldn't be surprised that the 419 crowd has upped sticks and headed north.
Got a letter from Jaime Navarro today. Seems he represents the estate of a chap who died tragically in a Barcelona car crash back in '07, leaving neither a will nor any inheritors. He did however leave US $ 8,600,000.00 in a bank account.
As luck would have it, said chappie shares my last name, and Mr. Navarro, eager to clean up this pesky file, has proposed that he and I connive to split the proceeds, with a thoughtful 10% taken off the top to be "shared among the Less Privilege."
I think I'll pass, but in case any readers want to pursue this and help Mr. Navarro out, here is his information:
Jaime Navarro, Barrister & Solicitor
Av/Reino de Valencia, 8,111-46005- Valencia
Tell him I sent you.
