In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant,we are not allowed to operate a foriegn account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the time of transfer because I work in this bank,This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin with affidavit of trust of Oath to the bank and also present a foriegn account where you will need the said money
(USD$15.5,Million UNTED STATE DOLLARS)to be transfered into, after due verification and clarification to designated bank account.

Please you have been adviced to keep top secret as we are still in service and intend to retire from service after we conclude this deal with you. I will be monitoring the whole situation here in the bank until you confirm the money in your account and ask us to come down to your country for subsequent shearing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and
further investment, either in your country or any other country you may advice us to invest in.
