From: Dr. Kenneth Oyepemi
Attn: The Managing Director/CEO
I am the manager of bills and exchange at the foreign remittance department of the union bank of nigeria plc. I am writing this letter to ask for your support and cooperation to carry out this business opportunity in my department.
We discovered an unclaimed sum of us$35.2m (thirty-five million, two hundred thousand united states dollars only) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family in november 1999 in a plane crash.
Since we got the information about his death, we have been expecting his next-of-kin to come forward to claim his money because we cannot release the money unless somebody applies for it as the next-of-kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.
Unfortunately, neither the family members nor relations has shown up to claim this money, at this discovery, i and other officials in the department now decided to transact this business with you and transfer the fund into your account as the next-of -kin or relation of the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody has come up to claim this money moreover, we do not want this money to go into the banks treasury as an unclaimed debt.
The banking law and guideline of union bank of nigeria plc stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed for a period of three (3) years it will be transferred into the bank treasure as an unclaimed fund. The need for a foreigner as next-of-kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a nigerian cannot stand as his next-of-kin or heir.
We agreed that 20% of the money will be for you as the foreign partner, 70% for my colleagues and i while 10% has been earmarked for contingency expenses such as taxes and bank charges. Thereafter, my colleagues and i will visit your country for the disbursement according to the percentage indicated.
Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of the fund to you as indicated, you must apply to the bank as a relation or next-of-kin of the deceased, indicating your bank account details for the transfer.
Upon receipt of your reply by fax, i will send to you by fax the text of application. As soon as you receive this letter you should contact me immediately and indicate your direct and confidential fax number for effective communication.
Trusting to hear from you immediately on my fax number.
Mr. Kenneth Oyepemi
