I am Barrister Chong Bin Doha.
Legal practitioner by profession. an expert in Probate research meeting the need to contact lost or 
unknown next of kin and inheritors wherever they may be. I operate nationally in Asia and 
internationally to trace missing assets and beneficiaries as well as obtaining certificate to prove 
vital events.

Each year I inform hundred of people of entitlements, reuniting members of the public all over the 
world with unclaimed assets. If it was not for my expertise, these people would never know of their 
entitlement, let alone be able to prove a claim successfully.

Frequently, most solicitors and the authorities do not have the time, money or expertise required 
to locate an entitled beneficiary. Using personal resources together with modern technology, our 
own in-house databases and expertise, we investigate ancestry and family histories, enabling us to 
identify and locate next of kin, often underwriting our own research. We will also trace a named 
beneficiary, whose whereabouts are unknown. We are also authorized by the Financial Services 
Authority (FSA) to arrange suitable missing beneficiary indemnity insurance.

It is my pleasure to bring to your knowledge that your name falls in as the supposed next of kin 
(Inheritor) of the sum of US$6,500,000. (Six Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) left behind by 
one of my late clients after his death in December 2003. After his untimely death I have made 
several contacts and research trying to locate his next of kin to claim the unclaimed inheritance 
but all my effort proved abortive. He died along with his wife and only daughter in a Plane Crash 
and left no next of kin behind.

Based on my fruitless research and the latest notice I received from his bank treating to 
confiscate the unclaimed fund if nobody comes to claim the fund, I have deem it necessary to 
contact you and to present you as the supposed next of kin and beneficiary of the unclaimed 
inheritance to avoid loosing the money to the bank. You are very much qualified to claim the 
unclaimed fund because your name is closely related to the name of the deceased. You bear the same 
surname with the deceased which makes it much easier for you to claim the money without 

As the private lawyer and Attorney of the deceased, I`m in possession of all the relevant 
information and documents that may be required for your successful claim of the money without 
difficulties or problems. I will work with you in every area and give you maximum support and 
assistance in claiming the fund. I will also act as your Attorney in all matters related to this 
claim. It may interest you to know that 50% of the inheritance shall be your share while 50% shall 
be for me. I will come over to your country to meet with you for the sharing of the money after the 
fund is transferred to your account by the bank.

Rest assured that this transaction will be done legally in accordance with the law. This 
transaction is risk-free both now and in future. Your acceptance of this offer would be most 
appreciated. Please, reply with your name in full, Nationality and your private telephone numbers 
for further communication.

Yours sincerely
Barrister Chong Bin Doha.Esq.
