THIS CONTRACT HAS LONG BEEN EXECUTED AND COMMISSIONED, BUT THIS OVER INVOICED PAYMENT IS STILL OUTSTANDING AND UNCLAIMED DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH I WILL EXPLAIN TO YOU IN THE COURSE OF OUR CORRESPONDENCE. THIS MATTER REQUIRES UTMOST ATTENTION AS THE CURRENT POLITICAL SITUATION IN OUR COUNTRY

I HAVE DECIDED TO USE ALL THE RESOURCES WITHIN MY POWER TO RETRIEVE THIS OUTSTANDING CONTRACT PAYMENT SINCE THE CONTRACTOR WHOSE NAME WAS USED TO PROCESS THE CONTRACT PAYMENT APPROVAL HAS LONG DIED AND NO RELATIVES HAS EVER CAME FORWARD FOR THE CLAIMS OF THE OUTSTANDING PAYMENT. WE HAVE MADE SEVERAL ATTEMPTS TO POSSIBLY TRACE ANY OF THE LATE CONTRACTORS’S RELATIVES WHO WILL ASSUME THE RESPONSIBILITY OF COMING FORWARD FOR THE CLAIMS OF THIS OUTSTANDING PAYMENT. IT IS NEVER MY DESIRE TO SEE THE AB

UNTIL SUCH A TIME THIS MATTER IS SETTLED, I WILL CONTINUE TO WORK WITH YOU IN ANY WAY POSSIBLE TO SEE THAT THE OUTSTANDING PAYMENT IS RELEASED AND TRANSFERRED IN YOUR NAME AS A BONA FIDE NEXT OF KIN TO THE LATE CONTRACTOR AS I SHALL BE PRESENTING YOU TO THE MINISTRY OF WORKS. WE SHALL WITHIN THE COURSE OF THE NEXT FEW DAYS PLAN AND EXECUTE HOW BEST TO PURSUE THIS MATTER OF MUTUAL INTEREST WITH A VIEW TO COST EFFECTIVENESS.

I HAVE ALL THE NECESSARY LEGAL DOCUMENTS THAT WILL BE USED TO BACK UP ANY CLAIM WE MAY MAKE. ALL I REQUIRE IS YOUR HONEST CO OPERATION TO ENABLE US SEE THIS DEAL THROUGH. I GUARANTEE THAT THIS WILL BE EXECUTED UNDER A LEGITIMATE ARRANGEMENT THAT WILL PROTECT US FROM ANY BREACH OF LAW.IF INTERESTED PLEASE RESPOND AND DO NOT BE DESTRUCTIVE. IF MY OFFER IS OF NO APPEAL TO YOU, DELETE THIS MESSAGE AND FORGET I EVER CONTACTED YOU. DO NOT DESTROY MY CAREER EVEN IF YOU DO NOT APPROVE OF MY PROPOSAL. IF
