Attn: Beneficiary,
 
Definitely, I know that this letter will be a surprising one to you. Firstly, I will like to introduce myself formally as MR DARWIN FRAME, a manager with the First National bank of South Africa (FNB).
 
I am officially contacting you today because your Inheritance Funds valued at USD$16.5M has been converted into COMMERCIAL TRADING MONETARY INSTRUMENT and sent to the SOUTH AFRICAN RESERVE BANK last week  last week, because you did not forward your Claim in time as the Right beneficiary..
The reason why we had to do that is some men came to my office recently in person and said that they were here to collect the Inheritance Bill Sum of (USD 16.5) which rightfully belongs to you, on your Behalf.
 
At this development I asked them who authorized them to come down To South Africa for the Collection of this Payment and they told me that you asked them to come and collect this Funds on your Behalf. In-fact this was the biggest shock that this Bank have ever Received so far because your Inheritance Funds bill instrument was just sent to the Reserve Bank no quite long, yet you sent these men to come and collect this Funds on your behalf without notifying us.
 
We in this Bank do not understand why you sent these men to come and Collect your Funds on your behalf. If actually you want them to help you collect your Inheritance Bill Sum, at least you should have informed me as the manager of the bank.
 
They actually tendered some Vital Documents, which proved that you actually sent them for the Collection of these Funds. Honestly, it really baffles me that you took such decision without my consent. Here is the Document, which they tendered to this Bank today:
 
1. LETTER OF ADMINISTRATION.
2. HIGH COURT INJUCTION.
3. ORDER TO RELEASE.
 
Actually, these Documents, which they tendered to this Noble Bank, are a clear Proof that you sent them to Collect this Funds for you. Finally, I told them to come back within the next thirty days and they promised to come back. As the Governor of this Noble Bank, I was supposed to Release this Fund to them but I refused to do so because I wanted to hear from you first.
 
Due to the Nature of my job, I will not want to make any mistake in Releasing this Funds to anyone except you whom is the Recognized Bonafide Beneficiary to this Funds according to the one of our late customers that willed the money to you.
 
Kindly clarify us on this issue before we start processing this Payment to these foreigners whom came on your behalf. In receipt of this Confidential Letter, you are required to send an email letting us know what actually is happening and your stand on this issue. Or you can call this Bank immediately you receive this Confidential Letter. You can reach me on my private phone number: +[protected]  as soon as you gets this email.
 
Please note to include your telephone number and fax for fast communication.
 
OFFICIALLY SIGNED.
MR.DARWIN FRAME.
MANAGER, FIRST NATIONAL BANK.
