Unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin's or relation died along side with him in the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I donât want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. I agreed that 20 % of this money will be for you as foreign partner,in the respect of the provision of a foreign account,and 10 % will be set aside for the expenses incured during this business and 70 % would be for me.Thereafter,i will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated.Therefore,to enable the transfer of this fund to you as arranged,you must first apply to the Bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased indicating your Bank name,your Bank account number,your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location wherein the fund will be remitted.
