Bank International
for Commerce and Industries
Do accept my sincere apology if my mail does not meet your personal ethics, I am the Branch Manager of the above mentioned bank.
There is an escrow account in my bank holding a balance of US$13,010,500.00(Thirteen Million Ten Thousand Five Hundred United States Dollars). The depositor of these funds Mr. Kurt Kahle died in July, 2000 read through the link below.
Since then nobody has come up for claims and we are not aware of any of Mr. Kurt Kahle’s surviving family member.  As a result I am asking for your sincere co-operation to wire the money into a beneficiary's account overseas, I do not want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill which forms my intention of writing to you, you will be standing in legally as the next of kin/beneficiary of these funds hence we procure the necessary legal paperwork in your name to enable you stand for the claim.
The funds will be wired by Telegraphic Transfer to your private bank account immediately we ratify the paperwork in your name.
Considering my position in the bank, this transaction is totally risk free as the funds are legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundering, terrorism or any other illegal act. Immediately I receive your response, I will advise you subsequently for the immediate commencement of the transfer of these funds to your bank account.
Best regards,
Mr. Michael Ojo
