A foreigner late Mr.David McGrath who is from the United State, an Oil merchant/Contractor with the British Government , until his death in a ship mishap on the 2nd of May 1999, who Banked with us at our Bank and had a closing balance of US$21.5 million ,which the Bank dose not know any of his available next of kin to claim this funds. To this regards, I have been directed by the board of Trustees of the bank to notify the diseased next of kin, which I have done and found out that he has no next of kin, which means that this funds will be lost to the government,which we all know will be stolen by the British Government officials. In order to avert this development, myself and some of my trusted colleagues in the bank now seek your indulgence to have you stand as late Mr David McGrath next of kin so that the fund will be subsequently transferred and paid into your foreign account. On indicating your interest, all documents and proofs to enable you get this funds will be carefully worked out and we are assuring you a 100% risk free transaction.
