New Life Foundation 122b Olu Obasanjo Way Niger Delta Region Nigeria Dear Friend in the Lord, Good day; I hope you are fine and good . I am Rev. Williams Okotie a director of the above mentioned foundation. The Charity Foundation was founded by a very good friend of mine (of blessed memory). He was a foreigner and was the managing director of an Oil marketing firm here in Port Harcourt, Nigeria.He etablished this foundation to help less privileged, orphans, widows and widowers in our society and the foundation was doing this before the unfortunate death of its founder. For the past 5 months, the foundation has been finding it difficult to continue its corporal works of mercy; for the reason that the founder's bank stopped the monthly seeds that come to the foundation. The bank contacted me a month ago as a director of his foundation and a trustee to recommend a next of kin to the funds since he (Our Late founder) died without nominating a successor in title over the fund deposit made with the bank amounting to S$15 Million (Fifteen Million United States Dollars). The essence of this communication is to request that you provide me with information/comments on any or all of the four issues as regards nominating you to inherit the fund left behind since you are a foreigner, hence eligible to stand for claim of the funds. I have therefore contacted you to be legally nominated as next of kin (inheritor) to Our Late founder after all inquiries and investigation even with the relevant embassy has yielded results showing that there is no known or living next of kin. You are required therefore to answer these questions to enable me make my recommendation to the Bank here. -Can you confirm your willingness to accept this inheritance if you are legally and legitimately nominated through my recommendation to the bank and approved to stand as inheritor to the funds. -Would you agree to donate 80% of this inheritance to his charity organization if you are officially recommended to the bank in my powers to stand as the inheritor? To know more about our charity organization please call me +234-802-2530293. You must appreciate that I am constrained from providing you with more detailed information at this point. Please respond to this mail as soon as possible to afford me of the opportunity to provide you with more information on matter and upon your consent to proceed with the recommendation of your person to the bank as the inheritor of the funds. Thank you for accommodating this inquiry. Remain Blessed. Rev. Williams Okotie email@example.com
