I am contacting you with regards to this particular fund belonging to my
deceased client, I decided to contact you about this unclaimed deposits.
If you are not interested, please ignore this mail and go about your
normal business. I am Barrister Johnson Douglas, principal partner of
Douglas Chambers & Co, Law Office and Notaries Public and practising Law
in United Kingdom. I specialise in family law, will, probate and tax
saving strategies. On May 12 2010, one of my senior clients’ Mr. Thomas
Bahia a DUTCH died in a plane crash that happened in Libya. Here is a link
for your view:

My client stated his wife as his next of kin, but unfortunately she died
also in the crash, along with their three children. I am the executor of
my client’s will and have shared his assets and properties to his extended
family members and they have gone since December 2010.

But my client deposited the sum of $5.8 million United States Dollars in a
fixed deposit account in a bank in United Kingdom not known to anybody. On
January 15th 2015 the bank wrote me as his lawyer/executor to bring along
the next of kin/beneficiary of my client to inherit his funds (US$5.8m). I
have therefore decided to contact you to present you as the next of
kin/beneficiary to my client, to enable you receive the fund on our behalf
as my client’s spouse and dependent all died in the plane crash with him.
All the documents required to claim this funds are in my possession like
the affidavit of claim, death certificate, certificate of deposit,
transfer of ownership, certificate of inheritance etc.

I will forward to you all these documents required to claim this funds.
All I need from you is to indicate your interest to be the next of
kin/beneficiary to my late client and I will present it to the bank. This
is 100% legitimate. As the
fiduciary/trusted representative of the deceased, and as the manager of
his assets, properties and financial affairs when Mr. Thomas Bahia was
alive, I have absolute duty to properly administer the estate for its

Reply so that I can give you more information on how the fund will be
transfer to your account.


Johnson Douglas.
