   Since we heard of his death, we have been expecting his next of 
   kin to apply and put claims for his money as the heir, because we 
   cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies 
   for claim as the next of kin to the deceased as indicated in our 
   banking guidelines.Unfortunately, neither their family member nor 
   distant relative has ever appeared to claim the said fund. 
   Upon this discovery, I and other officials in my dep artment have 
   agreed to make business with you and release the total amount into 
   your account as the heir of the fund since no one came for it or 
   discovered the maintained account with our bank, otherwise the 
   fund will be returned to the banks treasury as unclaimed fund. We 
   have agreed that our ratio of sharing will be as stated thus;30% 
   for you as foreign partner,70% for us the officials in my department. 


   Then upon the successful completion of this transfer,I and one of 
   my colleagues will come to your country and mind our share. It is
