I have since and accordingly placed the funds (US$7, 700,000.00) in a suspense account without any beneficiary.

As the manager and an employee of the bank, I can not be directly involved and connected with the money, so this has informed my contacting you for us to work together so that you can assist in receiving this money into your bank account for us to share.
