Unfortunately, they all lost their lives in the event of the accident. Since then I have made several inquiries to Embassy to locate any of my client's relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful.

Fortunately, the Bank where the deceased deposited the Seventeen Million United States Dollars{$17,000,000.00} knows me very well and has ask me to present some one to claim the fund left by my late client as they all know I am his personal Accountant.
