I am Barrister Marck Walsh, Solicitor locate at Johannesburg South Africa,
i got your contact information from your consulate here in Johannesburg
South Africa in my search of my late client relative Mr. Andreas a property
magnate and building contractor based in the U.K. On the 25th of July 2000,
my client Andreas , his wife and only son died in the Air France concord
990 plane crashes over Hotelissimo on July 25, 2000.
They were bound for New York in their plan for a world cruise. For more
information about this crash and people, visit this Website: .
Your surname which co-incite with my late client last name and from the
same city, i guess you might be a relative to my late client.Before death
he left behind US$12.5 M deposit in his investment account with a bank in
upon his death the financial institution contacted me as his financial
consultant and attorney to provide them with a next of kin since the person
he provided for them died with him in the crash leaving a vacuum to be
filled. Two weeks ago, the bank adopted a resolution and I was
mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this fund within 28
working days or forfeit the money to the bank as abandoned by the owner
with no trace of next of kin.
The bankers had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 1936 to
confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period given to me.
Kindly email back on the receipt this mail ( by indicating your private phone
number for further briefing.
Yours sincerely,
Barrister Marck Walsh
