The deceased customer used his wife as the next of kin but unfortunately the wife died along side with him leaving nobody for the claim. According to our banking policy if the fund remains unclaimed for the period of 6years then the fund will be transfer into the reserve bank as unclaimed bill. I donât want the fund to go into the bank treasury and as such, letâs claim the fund now. You can see the news on BBC and CNN regarding their death.
Hence; I am inviting you for a business deal where this money can be shared between us in the ratio of 60% for me and 40% for you if you agree to handle this business with me. Further details of the transfer will be forwarded to you as soon as I receive your return mail. Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Thanks & Best Regards,
