There is an account opened in this bank in 1995 and since my inception into office in 2001, nobody has operated on this account again, after going through some old files, I discovered that the account owner is Mr. Han Reid, he died in a motor accident and if i do not remit this money out urgently, it will be forfeited for nothing. I am contacting you because of the need to involve a foreigner with a foreign account to act as the next of kin. i need your co-operation to make this work fine, because the management of the bank is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has the correct information to this account, which i will give to you when sure of your capability to handle such amount in strict confidence and trust according to my instructions and my advice for our mutual benefit because I don't want to make any mistake, I need your strong assurance and trust.
