I have found you as a trust-worthy individual with high esteem and respect, and would want to seek your consent to present you to the Bank as the next-of-kin and the true beneficiary of my client’s fund, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you as his next-of-kin and the true beneficiary, then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage. All legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next-of-kin would be provided to you to be issued to the Bank for claim authorization. All I require of you is your honest and candid cooperation to enable this transaction becomes a reality. This transaction would be executed under a legitimate arrangement that would protect you from any breach of the law whatsoever.
