Before his death, he deposited the sum of US$12.5M (Twelve Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in his bank account with our bank. All my efforts to locate his legitimate relations or next of kin since he died has been unsuccessful as he did not mention any in all the documents he tendered to our bank. As his account officer, I have been mandated by the management of the bank to present the beneficiary next of kin to late Mr. Mike Hodge within fourteen (14) banking days or the fund will be reverted to the treasury as unclaimed deposit. It is on the strength of this mandate that I solicit for your permission by using your name as the beneficiary next of kin to late Mr. Hodge to transfer this money into your bank account before the time elapses. I have all the legal documents that can be used to back up this claim in your favour and protect you from any trace of the fund at completion of the transaction. You will be compensated with 30% of this fund for your assistance, 20% will be set aside for expenses that may be incurred in the course of the transaction while you keep 50% safely for me.
