Peter and Associates, Solicitors & Advocates. Plot 234,Suite 23, Da-Silva Crescent, Victoria Island, Lagos - Nigeria. Dear Sir/Madam,My name is Barrister Peter Crown a legal practitioner and the personal attorney to one of the passengers of the Belleview Boeing 737 plane crash in which 117 persons died on 22nd of October 2005,my client died along side with his entire family.After the death of my client his bank contacted me,as his Attorney to provide his next-of-kin who should inherit his funds.The board of directors of his bank adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide his next-of-kin for the payment of this money or forfeit the money to the federal government treasury account as an abandoned property.
After making several unsuccessful attempts to locate his relatives,I decided to trace his relatives through the Internet in order to locate any member of his family yet nothing came out of it.The bank had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 1996 to confisticate the funds after the expiration of the period given to me.My late client was a successful businessman,an oil magnet here in Nigeria and he left behind a deposit of (us$16.5m) in his domiciliary bank account in a commercial bank here in Lagos.I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to present you as the next-of-kin of my deceased client,so that you can be paid the funds left in his bank account.
