Subject: How Are You!
Compliment of the Season to you and your love ones. I am sorry for this interruption. I have no other way to reach you than these ways please accept my apology.
I am the managing Director of a financial firm here in South East Asia.
In my department i discovered an abandoned sum which belongs to one of our foreign customer who i was his account manager.
I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder but unfortunately we learnt that he died along with his entire family in tsunami which happened in Indonesia and his supposed next of kin died along side with him at the tsunami disaster leaving nobody behind to claim the fund.
We cannot release this fund unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our guidelines and laws but if nobody applies as next of kin, government will pocket the money.
So i will need to present you as the next of kin so that this money can be transfer to you as his next of kin for us to share.
If you are interested, please get back to me for further details.
