Through my investigation, I find out that he die along with his next of kin and the roll-over on the funds has also expire because the bank law stimulates that after Ten years where the next of kin did not appear for the claim funds, the fund will transfer into bank treasury as unclaimed funds. In order to avert this negative development, I will like to seek for your permission as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Mr.Christian Eich so that the fruits of this old man’s labour will not be use for financing government.The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 50% for me and 50% for you and any expenses incurred in the course of the transaction will be made by both of us.
