relation during the last 22 months. The measure is to help prevent
confiscation of a deposit of US$13,700,000.00 he made with ORA BANK OF

my client. He died in a car accident with all his family both his wife
and his only Daughter involve in that accident . The account has been
dormant since then and no body has ever come forward for claims or
identification.It was after an auditing at the end of the financial
year in 2009 in the bank department that they discovered that his fund
is still unclaimed,and they made contact to me to seek and look for
his next of kin with the same surname,this account was dormant. After
all the routine notifications from the bank have elicited no response,
