ATTENTION: ARE YOU AWARE OF THIS?
Are you dead or alive? The reason for this question is that we received an email from one Mr. Henry Kyle. He has claimed to be a very good friend of yours, Mr. Henry Kyle has brought to the notice of this Bank that you are, dead and that you have given him a Letter Of Authorization signed by your personal attorney before your death to enable him receive your fund, which is pending in our Bank as your next of kin.
Mr. Kyle in his email referred the Management of this Bank to the below site:
He stated that your unfortunate death on the 25 of December 2003 was on the CNN news. According to him, after the unfortunate plane crash, which claimed your live and that of your entire family, you were among those that was rushed to an emergency hospital, whereby you died few days later and gave him the Authorization Letter before your death to enable him claim your fund, which has been pending for long in this bank. Mr. Kyle added that why he has taken this long to claim the fund is because he has been on a business trip since after your death.
Although, we have responded to Mr. Henry Kyle, but in our response we told him that we have to confirm if you are really dead to avoid any kind of money laundry from him, and also told him that your fund valued at the total sum of (15,000,000.00GBP) only; has been approved in your favor, and that we will start the transfer of the fund to him into the account he has provided us with, but only after we confirm if you are really dead or not. In addition, we have asked him to call back after 5 Bank working days to enable us carry out our investigations thoroughly by confirm if you are really dead.
