Dear Friend,

According to the investigation I carried out in my office on your inheritance payment file which was submitted to my office for final remittance of the fund into your account, I discovered that you did not inherit this fund OR Even being Next of Kin as you claim. The inheritance reference number given to you has been used to pay the Fund owner and that has made it impossible for you to receive this money earlier without getting any fruitful or positive result, it is so amusing to hear that. Now, that is to say that you are not the Next Of Kin because each time I want to remit this money into your account it always shows error in the computer system and also the zip code could not fit in with the inheritance reference in the system.

Be inform that anyone telling you that he/she will release this money to you is just deceiving you because you know within yourself that you are NOT the Next of Kin to the late uncle you claim. In other hand, I felt so uncomfortable when I found out on my computer data, However, I contacted you base that your name was found in my computer system but after proper investigation, I discovered that the original Depositor of this fund has been paid but the balance was just floating in the bank audit. What I demanded from you is just 40% of the approved 10 million then I
will make it a reality to you by transferring the fund into your bank account through diplomatic unit of the bank.

Similarly, don't be deceived by the ignorant of those who is trying to reap from you and what you stand to gain because at the end you will lose all. Every payment regarding international debt to the foreign beneficiaries will be paid through my executive office. It was sequel to this that the Directors of the Bank passed an instruction to my department to carry out the investigation to know who has been paid and who has not be paid so that I will carry out the payment immediately as soon as the benefactor have completed the procedures with international money transfer required and that is the transfer charges. Therefore, it was on the process that I discovered your name as I explained above regarding you not been the original beneficiary of the fund. Thereafter, I will advice that you re-confirm all your bank details and your full details to enable me make some corrections and proceed with the transfer.

This inheritance fund belong to an American Citizen who has been fully paid, the remaining sum which is now floating in audit department awaiting for transfer and nobody is aware that you are not the Next of Kin to the beneficiary of this inheritance fund except me which I will never disclose to any one apart from you base on the following conditions.

1. That the money will be shared as thus: 60% for you and 40% for me.

2. You will never let anyone know about this development because of security reasons.

3. You should stop further communication with any other person(s) in regards to this payment.

4. You should send me an irrevocable letter of agreement to reassure me of my 40% after the successful transfer of this fund into your bank account.

If my condition is acceptable to you, do not hesitate to send the above requirements for further directives including your tel/fax number plus any relevant info.

You should stop further communication with any other person(s) in regards to this payment both here and offshore payment center.

Looking forward to hearing from you.


Mr. Helford Kries.
