Attn: To whom it may concern,

Following the gazette by The Chancellor of the Exchequer to all financial institutions with National Savings and Investments to estimate the value of its unclaimed assets in savings with no customer activity for the last ten years with a view to harness around 1BN POUNDS lying dormant in the nationâs bank and building society accounts for re-investment in the UK, We have been commissioned by the NCC to seek out legal heirs to unclaimed asset as a means to ensure that genuine claims are not reverted to the government treasury and to maintain public confidence in the safety and security of the banking system.

According to our records, your name has been listed as a beneficiary of GBP15,000,000.00. Your Benefactor, Mr. Kenneth Shea,who died in November 2004, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Financial assets are considered unclaimed when contact with an owner or beneficiary/legatee is lost for an extended period or unaware of the secret trust held for him by the trustee. This often happens due to a name change after marriage or divorce, an unreported change name and address or expired postal forwarding order, incomplete, illegible records and result of computer and clerical errors. When owners or their heirs fail to claim an asset over a specified number of years known as the dormancy period, those left holding the money: banks, stock brokers, utilities, employers, life insurance companies, probate offices and other - transfer custody to a special trust account in a process known as escheat.

We will provide legal assistance and claims administration through the Treasury Solicitor, Department of the Probate Registry for transfer of ownership of the Financial Asset to you as listed heir.

More Information will be provided on your acknowledgment of the receipt of this Legal Notice.

Yours Faithfully,

Harry Merson (Esq).
