Plc. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of my bank with
account number14-255-2004/utb/t who perished in a plane crash [Korean
Air Flight 801] with the whole passengers aboard.
demise of this our customer by name Barry Kelly I personally has
watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved
abortive as none has come to claim his funds of usd.15.5M, [Fifteen
million Five hundred thousand united states Dollars] which has been
with my branch for a verylong time.
On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the next of kin as no one has come up to be the next of kin.
the banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than
five years, because money will be recalled to the bank treasury as
unclaimed after this period.

that your name and country is similar to the deceased.
I will give you 30% of the total.
the receipt of your response, I will send you by fax or e-mail the
application, bank's fax number and the next step to take.
not fail to bring to your notice that this business is hitch free and
that you should not entertain any fear as all modalities for fund
transfer can be finalized with in five banking days,
after you apply to the bank as a relation to the deceased.
