Hello Mr. Ogbuka. Even thought you asked me to keep this in confidence, I already told my mother about the whole situation. She tells me that we actually had a great-grand uncle whose family ended up over there in Africa. I was wondering if you have any picture of the late Mr Morie --------- to see if there is any resemblance to our family.
Also I would like to see the pictures of the accident. I find accidents documentation fascinating. I hope this does not sound weird or inappropriate but I would really like to see them.
I was thinking, did Mr. --------- left any kind of state or house. I always wanted to visit Nigeria. I heard is beautiful during the autumn months. Since I may claim to be his next in kin I thought why not claim his late house. I was just thinking. I am not sure the conditions on which he died.
I hope to hear soon from you, I know this needs to be done soon.
Hello Mr Ogbuka, I am still wating for your response, I know it is very important we act quickly, please let me know what is going on.
