I am writting to seek your coperation over this business deal.
In my department, I discovered an abandoned sumof$30million
USD(thrity million US dollars)only , in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family in a plane crash that took place in Kenya,East Africa,the Late DR. GEORGE BRUMLEY,a citizen of Atlanta,United
States of America butnaturalised in Burkina faso,West Africa and contractorwith
ECOWAS,(ECONOMIC COMMUNITY OF WEST AFRICAN STATES) .Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because it cannot be released unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased asindicated in
our banking guidelines but unfortunately , all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the planecrash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this businness proposal to you andrelease the money to you via your foreign bank
account as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and sub sequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and this money Could go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.
The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclamed after four years, the money will be transfered into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund.There i quest for your assistance and maximum co-operation as a foreign citizen to stand as the next of kin in this business
is occasioned by the fact that the deceased customer was a foreigner and a Nigerian cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. 40 % of this money will be for you as my foreign partner, inrespect to the provision of a foreign account. 10 %will be set aside for expences incured during the businessand 50 % would be for me.There after I will come over to your country for disbursement accoding to the percentages indicated.
Therefore to enable the immediate trnansfer of this fund to you as arranged,you must apply first to the bank as the relation or next of kin to the deceased,indicating your claims and where in the money will be remitted.
Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of application which you will fill and submit to the office of the foreign remittance director of the bank of africa. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is stricly confidential and i will use my position in this Bank to effect a hitch free transfer of the fund.
