Thank you very much for your prompt response to my mail. And for your information I have already applied a notification letter to the National Bank of Dubai Uae, and application of claim to their legal department on your name as the beneficiary of my deceased client and it has been honored also I have gotten details from the bank as they requested you (the fund Beneficiary) to apply officially for the release of your late cousin’s (Mr. James Brown Walker) Fund with them.
Since the National bank of Dubai asked you to apply officially for the release and transfer of this fund into your own bank account, I have drafted an Application Letter that you will rewrite and send to the bank. You are kindly advised to send it to the bank as soon as you receive it if possibly today, so that the Bank will get it on time and as well instruct you on what next to do.
Like I have just advised you, you must re-write the Application Letter with your letterhead (Company’s letterhead or personal). You have to sign it, scan it and sent to the National Bank of Dubai via email attachment.
Nevertheless, I know that certainly, you must be apprehensive at the receipt of my mail Talking of a transaction of this magnitude. Such curiosity, as you have expressed in Requesting to know the time lag and resources that will be committed to this deal, is Already propelling me to have hopes that in you, I have found a reasonable person with whom I can do business. I wish to therefore reassure you that with your maximum cooperation, this is a deal that will benefit both of us immensely, as we will take all steps to ensure that we claim this money without any breach of the law either here in Dubai or in your country.
Therefore, to directly respond to the issues as raised by you, I wish to say that (1.) The Advantage that this deal will bring to you is that you and I will at the end of the transaction have some money, which we will share on the percentage to be agreed upon. I am Proposing that you will take 60% of the total sum, while I take 40%, (2.) And in time, I am sure that if we give our maximum cooperation, the Transaction will not last more than 10 working days from the date of commencement.
To throw more light, late Mr. James Brown Walker, an engineer by profession, was my client, and operated a Domiciliary Account at the National Bank of Dubai head office, and had a closing balance of US$15.5 million dollars before his death. And it was unfortunate that he perished with his family in the auto crash here in Dubai Uae. As his personal lawyer, I handled most of his corporate representations here.
Because of my position therefore, National Bank of Dubai , has contacted me, instructing that I should in my capacity as late Mr.James Brown Walker's personal lawyer, bring his next of kin/estate inheritor for the payment of his money in the bank, which is this US$15.5 million dollars. Like I explained to you in my first mail, I have tried to get any possible next of kin, but all to no avail. And as it is now, the National Bank of Dubai have in their notice, given a deadline after which the money will be claimed by the bank as money from an unserviced and redundant account.
From what I have narrated above, the money in question may not eventually be claimed at all if nobody comes up for it. And nobody can actually lay claim to it without my approval and participation given my status as the late engineer's attorney/representative. And personally, I cannot claim the funds as I am known as his Lawyer, even though I have information about it, because I am known as his attorney here. This has been a matter of great concern, and I have found out that if this money is confiscated by the bank, it will do no individual any good, and that is why I have contacted you, for us to work in PARTNERSHIP to claim it, since most especially, you are a foreigner like him.
My inquiries so far shows that for you to stand as the next of kin to claim the funds, you Having laid down the details of this deal to you, the next thing would be for you to contact the bank, National Bank of Dubai , and intimate them of your intention to claim the fund of James Brown Walker. I have told you in my first mail, that late Mr. Walker's personal banker, has already agreed with me to cooperate as an insider in this matter, and thus be giving us the relevant and inside information with which you will make the claim at the bank. As long as you present the right information about late James Brown Walker & his banking information, and then I approve it to the bank that you are really his next of kin/estate inheritor, then the bank (National Bank of Dubai ) will have no option than to release the funds to you as the rightful beneficiary.
If we are to go into this, it will start by you first of all contacting National Bank of Dubai stating the amount, which is US$15.5 million dollars, and then the Account Number, which are 003342584938. So you have to contact the bank thus:
