Subject: Engr. Mr. Friedrich Young left no beneficiary/next of kin to his codicil with me. .
Dear esteemed and respected Benjamin's family,
Thank you very much for your prompt reply to my letter to you and your
entire family. You should be informed that the deceased Engr. Mr.
Friedrich Young left no beneficiary/next of kin to his codicil with me
before he died with his entire family (he died with his wife and only
daughter in the car accident on 4th April 2004 while returning from a
holiday in the USA; therefore, for you and I to be able to claim his
inheritance estates from the bank where he deposited the sum of
$13,860,000 we need to apply for a legal letter of
administration in your name
as the personal representative to
administrate the deceased's
estates so that you can claim the
inheritance money from the
legal document Grant of Representation/legal letter of
administration will instate you as the legal/legitimate beneficiary
to the deceased's estates; we shall apply for this letter of
administration in your name at the Probate Registry division of the
High Court of Togo so that a legal LETTERof ADMINISTRATION/GRANT
of REPRESENTATION can be issued in your name as the legal named
beneficiary and administrator to the deceased's estates.
I know exactly how weare going to apply for this document since this
is my field as a lawyer knowing all the legal procedures to follow to
achieve our goal, and you don't have anything to fear since you are a
from the USA and sharing the same surname with the deceased we
are sure to succeed at the High Court of Togo here on your
behalf. I therefore want you to immediately forward me your
international passport copy or national identification or driver's
license in a scan attachment by email to enable me take all the
necessary legal remedial actions on your data as the next of kin with
the codicil of the deceased in my legal Chamber. In this kind of
application, personal representatives are called EXECUTORS if
appointed by WILL and ADMINISTRATORS if there is no WILL.
Administrators are appointed by the Probate division of the High Court
in any country where the inheritance matter is being handled as
already informed above. Therefore before personal representatives can
deal with an estate, they must obtain a grant of representation from
the High Court authorizing them to act as such as detailed below.
1. An OATH and STATEMENT of ASSETS and LIABILITIES must be
delivered to the Commissioner of Internal Revenue. The statement is a
list of the assets and liabilities of the estate (i.e. property owned
by and debts owed by the deceased when he/she died). The oath is a
sworn statement confirming that the contents of the inventory are
correct.Other documents to support the application includes:
(a) a copy of the death certificate of the deceased;
(b) Title (title deed) to immovable property (if any)
(c) certificates of valuation of the assets.
(d) a letter from a bank or share registry giving the value of the bank account or share at the date of death
(e) A Power of Attorney, where applicable
(f) Processing fee
2. Once the Commissioner of Internal Revenue's certificate
has been obtained the application for the legal
Letter of Administration/Grant of Representation will be made to the
High Court further fees/charges.The following documents must be filed
with the application:

This is an affidavit (a sworn statement in writing by the intended administrator (now you) containing information about the deceased and an undertaking to administer the estate properly and legally.
(e) A Power of Attorney, where applicable.
3.PublicationImmediately a grant of Representation/Letter
of Administration has been issued to your name by the Probate Division
of the High Court, the personal representatives (now going to be you) must :
(1) Collect in all the assets of the estate including money owed to the deceased and deposits made in Banks, Security and Finance Companies and stocks by the deceased.
