Ref: Since the demise of this customer, I personally have watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds of US$15.5M (Fifteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) which has been with our branch for a very long time. On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the Next of Kin as no one has come up as his next of kin. And the banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than Twelve (12) years, because the money will be recalled to the bank treasury as unclaimed fund after this period. In view of this I got your contact through a trade Journal when i was making a research on a foreigner i will use in this great opportunity. For your assistance I am willing to give you 20% of the total amount.

I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is hitch free and that you should not entertain any fear as all modalities for the smooth and easy transfer of this fund has been finalized, this transaction will be completed within five banking days Of receiving your response, after you apply to the bank as a relation to the deceased.
