Dear Beneficiary.

I am Mr. Itami James , the manager of audit & accounts department of our branch and i decided to 
contact you over this financial transaction worth the sum of three million, five hundred thousand 
united states dollars ($3,500,000.00).
This fund belongs to late Mr. Graham , a national of your country and one of our foreign customers 
who died on 22nd April, 2003 in an auto crash .I came across the deceased file during an internal 
audit as directed by the bank management.This is not a proceed of fraud as  the customer is a known 
contractor with the government and other agencies here in the country.
It is clearly stated in our banking foreign policy and signed lawfully that if such fund remains 
unclaimed by the next of kin till the period of six (6) years starting from the date when the 
beneficiary died, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as an unclaimed fund. The 
customer died interstate without any known next of kin to the bank. You have the same surname as 
the deceased hence my contacting you.
So the request of you as a foreigner is necessary to apply for the claim and transfer of the fund 
smoothly into a reliable foreign bank account which you shall provide as the next of kin to the 
If you are really sure of your integrity, trustworthy and confidentiality, reply with your contact 
necessary for the transfer so that i will let you know the steps to follow in order to finalize 
this transaction immediately.
I will be waiting for your reply via my private email
