I am sorry for contacting you unexpectedly without your consent again.I
have emailed you earlier without a response. In my first email I
mentioned about my late client whose relatives I cannot get in touch
with. I am compelled to do this because I would not want the bank to
push my client`s funds into the bank treasury as unclaimed inheritance.
Governing Body of the Bank has contacted me on this matter and I am yet
to provide the Next of Kin to lay claims to the Fund.Under a clear
and legitimate agreement with you, I shall seek your consent to
be presented as the next of Kin so that my late Clients\' Fund
will not be
Confiscated by the Bank and pushed into the bank treasury as unclaimed bills.
the sake of Transparency on this matter, you are free to make immediate
contact for further clarification and explanation on this matter.I will
need you also to reconfirm your full name and contact telephone number
to ascertain the fact that I am dealing with the right person.
receipt of your response i will give you the details of this
transaction.Note that this claim is legitimate.You can email me on
I await your prompt response.
