I will like to seek your help in a business proposal, which although is sensitive by nature and not
what I should discuss with someone I don’t know and have not met using a medium such as this
but I do not have a choice .
I am Mr. Michael Kijana, personal account manager of late Dr. Edward Gray, who 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 am also the Client Service manager of the Kenyan
branch. I will not mention the amount of money which runs into several millions in United States
Dollars and name of bank presently until we have agreed to deal. I trust you will understand the
need for such precautions.
So far, valuable efforts has been made to get to his people but to no avail, as he had no known
relatives more because he left his next of kin column in his account opening forms blank and he
has no known relative. 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
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 Gray so that the funds could be processed and
released into his next of kin, which is where you come in. We shall make arrangements with a
qualified and a reliable attorney to represent you locally to avoid any inconveniency 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, keep my confidence and disregard
this letter if you do not appreciate this proposition I have offered you.
I wait anxiously for your response. Please also include your phone number in your response.
