Mr.John Kuba Cites des Arts, Abidjan - Cote D'Ivoire Attention. Permit me to use this medium to write you; I am Mr.John Kuba, I work with a prime bank here in Abidjan â Cote d'Ivoire as a project and investment officer. I am writing this letter on behalf of a client of the bank who owned one of the largest farms in Ivory Coast (Cote d'Ivoire). The client, his wife and three children died in a fatal road accident on their way to visit Ghana's ancient museum. Since then I have made several inquiries to trace the family or anyone with useful information about the family. After several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace the family name from the Internet Information Program (IIP) to see if I can get any member of his family and hence I come across your contact. My interest on this matter is about the amount US$10, 850,000.00 United States dollars which without early trace to the family the fund would be confiscated by the bank. My office was assigned and compelled the bank to find his next of kin; however, since his wife and the supposed next of kin were along with him in the unfortunate incident that engulfed the entire family, it is obvious that the bank will confiscating the deposit of the deceased in the bank should nobody appears to claim the money within this time. I wish to use professional manner to submit your name as a relative to the deceased so that the deposit will be paid to you should you agree to devote honesty and good fate to handle this. I assuredly guarantee that this will be executed under all legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law inasmuch as we will share the money 50/50. Please provide me with your full Name and Address, Date of birth, Telephone and Fax Number to enable me effect change(s) where necessary to the bank for claim, reply is very important to register your interest. Cordially Yours, Mr. John Kuba https://www.lmn.cv.ua
