The original/initial depositor is dead and there is no recorded next of kin to our deceased customer and nobody has asked for this fund for the past eight years.The fund is contained in two trunk boxes marked 106 and 107 respectively. For security reasons, I will give you the information about this fund and the criteria for a hitch free claiming of this fund and the transfer to your good account number for our mutual benefits upon receipt of your favorable response. We will also discuss the sharing percentage and the investment upon hearing from you. To prove to you the genuineness of this fund, I have consulted a Lawyer who will assist me in the procurement of a sworn affidavit of fact and affidavit of claim in your name and on your behalf from a High Court here and our Ministry of Justice respectively. These two affidavits will be used for the procurement of the change of beneficiary name of this fund to your name from the security company as this will enable you to claim the fund. Again, for security reasons, all information concerning this fund will be made available to you upon receipt of your acceptance reply;You have to send me your private telephone number so we can have a heart to heart conversation or call me on +233242381569 or my private email:email@example.com Remain blessed, Mr. Philip Lawpong
