It is therefore upon this discovery in my department i decided to make this businness 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 i don;t want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.i agree that 45% of this money will be for you as foreignpartner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 5% will beset aside for expenses incured during the business and 50% would be for;me 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 relations or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where in the moneywill be remitted.Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application.
