I am the Auditing and Accounting exchange at the foreign remittance department in our BANK in THAILAND my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $10.5m dollar (Ten million five hundred thousand US Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in plan crash here in Thailand.
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless somebody applies for it as a next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines and laws, but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died along side with him at the disaster leaving no body behind for the claim.
therefore upon this discovery that I and other officials in my department 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 we don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
The banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after 8years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as an unclaimed fund, The request of a foreigner as a next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Thailand citizen cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
I agree that 35% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the transaction of this business and 55% will be for me There after I and my
family will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.
Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as a relation or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where in the money will be remitted.
upon receipt of your reply, i will send to you by fax or email the text of the application. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is hicth-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements has been made for the transfer.You should contact me (email@example.com)immediately as soon as you receive this letter.
