Old-school spam/scam

For once this is going to be about the contents of the mailbox rather than the mailbox itself.

Tue wondered what it could be when Lisbeth recently told him that a letter from Spain was waiting for him at home. Wonder gave way to puzzlement when it turned out to be from a Roland Garcia. He had discovered that Tue might be an heir to Dr. Sven A. Tue /who tragically died in the tsunami catastrophe in December 2004). A discovery founded on the identical surnames (!!!).

"Dr.Sven." allegedly had the foresight to place a box containing ten and a half million US dollars with a "security company" in Spain (click on the picture to see larger version) and if no heir is found all that money is going to be confiscated by the bureau of diplomatic security ...

Hmmm... perhaps stamps are a little too cheap in Spain after all?!
