"Dear (insert my last name),
I would like to seek your help in a business proposal , which although is sensitive by nature which is not
what i should discuss with someone i don’t know and not met using a medium such as this but i do not
have a choice .
I am Mr. Prinz Gaitho, I am the client service manager of the Kenyan branch of the bank where late Dr.
Edward (insert my last name) left behind a large sum of money, he died of a cardiac arrest a few years ago leaving
behind a large sum of money with a commercial bank in the Island of Seychelles which is a tax free zone,
a place where plenty of rich people tend to hide away funds not ready to be used or invested. I will not
mention the amount of money which runs into several millions in United States Dollars and the name of
bank presently until we have agreed to deal. I trust you will understand the need for such precautions.
So far, valuable efforts have been made to get to his people but to no avail, as he had no known relatives
he left his next of kin column in his account opening forms blank. Due to this development the bank has
been expecting someone to come forward as a close relative, to claim the funds. otherwise as the
Seychelles national laws would have it, any dormant account for five years will be declared unclaimed
and then paid into the government purse.
To avert this negative development my colleagues and i have decided to look for a reputable person to
act as the next of kin to late Dr. Edward (insert my last name), So that the funds could be processed and released into
any account provided by the person, which is where you come in. We shall make arrangements with a
qualified and a reliable attorney to represent you locally to avoid any inconvenience of you coming down
to claim the funds
All legal documents to aid your claim for this fund and to prove your relationship with the deceased will be
provided by us. Your help will be appreciated with 30% of the total sum which I would disclose in my next
email. Please accept my apologies and keep my confidence and disregard this letter if you do not
appreciate this proposition i have offered you.
I wait anxiously for your response.
