Sir, since the demise of this our customer Mr. George an import and export mogul here. I have kept close monitoring of the deposit records and accounts since then no body has come to claim the money in this a/c as next of kin to the late Mr. George. A total of $9mllion is left in his account. The a/c is coded and it takes an insider in my capacity to produce such code or password relating to the deposited amount.
