Since then=20 nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money as he=20 has no family Member who is aware of the existence of either the=20 account nor the Funds.

This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the=20 fund is Legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundry,=20 terrorism or any other Illegal act. On your interest, let me hear from=20 you. Regards, Liam.
