If we don't claim this money No one would and the money would be confiscated by the bank, I feel it is rather appropriate that we team up and claim this money and use 20% of the money to help the poor and the less privilege in our society, then you and I would share the money, 40% to me and 40% to you. Rather than allow the bank to confiscate the money.

I have all the necessary legal documents that can be used to back up the claim we would make. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this project through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.I awiat ur prompt reply.
