During our recent auditing the bank management discovered an amount of money valued $15m dollars in a foreign dormant account. (An abandoned Account with our bank) I am writing to seek your assistance in working with me as my foreign partner, so that you can stand as the beneficiary or relation to the deceased customer also as the rightful beneficiary to the fund, hence through my personal investigation the account owner who deposited this money died accidental years ago with her wife . So the account has being dormant for over six years, Meanwhile I have trashed off the account in the audits hedger, it is only lying in the hard disc of the bank and with this system it is not possible to trace the account owner.
It is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honor against your will, please consider the value I offer. The fact hence itâs a foreigner that bears the account, there is need for a foreigner as well to stand as the beneficiary to the fund or relation the account owner, as public services in this country we are not permitted by law to run a foreign account. This operation system will be well perfected and executed without any risk and it is a hitch free business deal.
