I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that a “senior manager” for a US bank would have his or her own email address via the bank, not a random Thai email address. I think also, that if you were owed money from Africa, the “governing body” of the bank would pass on your name as well as your email address!
This is a scammer, hoping you will fall for his or her silly story – then they will start asking you to send money. Ignore them.
