A deceased client of my Law firm had some fixed deposits valued $16.9m (Sixteen Million, Nine 
Hundred Thousand United

responsibilities, the financial 

institution has requested that I present the Next of Kin/beneficiary to the deposit as failure will 
apply to confiscation 

of benefits and subsequently escheat of the deposit to the Government. 

Given my failure to locate any existing family members of the deceased knowing fully well that he 
died with his immediate 

family, I resolved to search for a good and trust worthy partner so I can present him/her to the 
financial institution as 

the beneficiary after procuring necessary legal documents that endow him legal rights to as the 
rightful beneficiary to the 

fund hence I have contacted you.
