  1. My name is Thamsanqa Lovemore Maneli. I am writing this email in respect of my late relative’s funds, By the name of Dr. Èrik Maneli, who is with your bank The Commerz Investment Private Bank. I want to open an online account with your bank to enable me to have access to my late relative’s funds as his only surviving relative and next of kin. I will be very happy if my email is granted a response with respect to my request.

    Kind Regards.
