I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr.Marija Doric did not declare any next of kin in all his official documents with me or the Finance company. No one has forwarded any claim to this fund. The said Securities & Finance Company has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the fund turned to the Netherlands authorities as unclaimed money within the next Twenty One (21) official working days.

I will give you 30% of the total money for your assistance and another 5% shall be set aside for any expenses that may occur in the course of executing this transaction. My own share 65% I will like to use my own part of the money to invest in any profitable venture in as you may advice especially in buying shares in some blue chip companies/ Real estate in your country.

I shall prepare a letter of probate/administration on your behalf which i will forward to the finance Company. All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through.
