We discovered this deposit through the deposit documents recovered in my father's secret brief case. We have also contacted the company who confirmed the existence of the deposit with them. The company now requests us to come forward to claim the consignment or have it confiscated. The company doest not know that the consignment content is cash as it is manifested as PERSONAL EFFECTS.
