Sadly our late customer was among the death victims in the May 26 2006 Earthquake disaster in Jawa, Indonesia that killed over 5,000 people. He was in Indonesia on a business trip and that was how he met his end. Our bank executives yet to know about his death, I knew about it because itâs our one customer. He did not mention any Next of Kin/ Heir when the account was opened, and he was not married and no children. Last week we have discussed about fund which it will be lodge to the bank treasure. So I don't want such to happen. That was why when I saw your last name I was happy and I am now seeking your co-operation to present you as Next of Kin/ Heir to the account, since you have the same last name with him and my bank head quarters will release the account to you. There is no risk involved and its 100% assurance the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law.
