My name is Engr. Maxwell Duduza I work with an investment bank in the United Kingdom as probate detectives, we basically looking for distant relatives of people who have died without making a will or stating any beneficiary in their data. The United Kingdom government normally does this every end of the year before they will legally confiscate the funds, Last year alone the government made over GBP35Million from unclaimed assets of foreigners and local investor.
When people die without a will or mentioned beneficiary and with no known relatives, their names are released by the Treasury department every end of the year, a list of these unclaimed estates, cash investments saved gold and diamond assets are also included. I started working with this investment bank since last year but I have done my research and see that we can make a lot of money by working with trust and respect i have notice that with all the informationâs in my position right now we can make a lot of money by fronting you as the deceased relative or beneficiary of his assets.
I have in my position his account details and death certificate and a copy of his international passport which are the requirements needed to be provided by any next of kin claimer. If you are willing to work with me, I will advise you forward me your contact details so that I will contact you for proper introduction and communication before we proceed.
