With gratitude I acknowledge the receipt of your given information and your sincere promises to help me
with open heart and sincerity may God bless you my love. Please I wish to tell you once again that the
fund $7.5M is my inheritance fund from my late father and it has no criminal background and the bank knows
that the money is my inheritance fund from my late father.
My late father deposited the funds in fixed suspense account with the Spring Bank Plc and he mandated the
bank to transfer the fund to any foreign account that will be provided by me being the next of kin to the
my intention was immediately the fund is transferred into your account, you will withdraw some money and
send to me to enable me pay off my debts here in the guest house and also to pay for my visa and flight
ticket to meet you over there and start a new and better life because I have suffered a lot since my
father died. Please be informed that the bank cannot release any money to me because the fund was
deposited in fixed suspense account waiting for onward transfer only. Also my late father signed an
agreement bond with the bank that I will not have access to the deposited fund until I reach the age of 25
years. Please I want you to know that it is only when the fund is in your account that I will have access
However, I went to the bank this morning to submit your given information to enable the bank to process
the transfer to your account. On reaching to the bank this morning, I was very lucky to meet the director
international remittance department in the person of Dr. Joseph Greenpalm. Base on my discussion
concerning the transfer to your account, Dr. Joseph Greenpalm told me that the fund was in high volume and
also in a fixed/suspense account for onward transfer. He said that due to the terrorist activities around
the world and money laundering, that banks and governments of all nations wants to clear every fund from
any illegal related offences before crediting the beneficiary account. Therefore, the bank director said
that considering the above reasons that no bank is permitted to transfer or receive funds of this
magnitude without legal authorisation from the government, He advised us to get some legal authorisation
clearances documents from the ministry of justice and ministry of finance here in Abidjan Ivory Coast to
empower the bank to transfer the fund legally to your account without questioning the fund as illegal
funds transfer or terrorist funding.
Please below are the requested legal documents needed by the bank to empower them transfer the money
legally to your account without any problem.
1. Your full banking details where you wish the money to be transferred to:
2. Letter of administration/authorisation from the probate registry in the ministry of justice and finance
here in Abidjan Cote d Ivoire .
3. A sworn affidavit of trust/claim from the high court of justice here in Abidjan Cote d Ivoire .
4. The official lodgement receipt which was issued to my late father on the day that he made the deposit
5. My late father s death Certificate.
Dear Ion, I happily wish to inform you that I am in possession of the number four and five documents which
is the official lodgement receipt and death certificate. The second and third documents are what I don't
have with me here and we need to get them for the transfer to be effected into your account immediately. I
suggest that it will be wise for you to contact the bank directly and introduce yourself as my late
father's foreign business partner and my guardian who want to assist me in the funds transfer. The bank
will transact with you directly and also respect your views, due to my age; I am still too young and would
want you to handle everything by your good self. Please, I have already informed the foreign remittance
manager Dr. Joseph Greenpalm that you are my late father's foreign business partner who wants to assist me
with the funds transfer and Dr. Joseph Greenpalm requested that you should contact him directly for the
transfer, so he will recognize your name when you contact them. Also, you will acknowledge the
requirements which they requested from us, and also request that he give you contact of a good lawyer who
will assist us and get the needed legal documents for the transfer.
