Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines. It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to make business with you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation of the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement. It is agreed that a certain percentage of this money will be for you as my foreign partner. Upon receipt of your reply I will send to you the text of the application.Thereafter I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage agreed. Yours faithfully Maher Labib Abou Steit,General Manager, UBE.
