    Dear Mr. Vasanth Kumar:
    Branch and Client Services

    We are Shiho-Shoshi Lawyer’s Office (Solicitor in Japan) named Juristor International Office in Tokyo, Japan. My name is Mr. Atsushi Sato. I’m one of the staff members in the office. I’m writing this email on behalf of Mr. Hidehito Yamakita, the representative Shiho-Shoshi lawyer in our office. We hope this email will be forwarded to the relevant division in the above addressed branch.

    I’m contacting you this time regarding the account of Ms. Miho Hirose who holds her account in your bank (account number:4981868883 / 49818688919), and have received a request from Mr. Toshiaki Hirose, her heir, to close her account.

    Ms. Miho Hirose has already passed away and we have started the inheritance procedure for her. Since the decedent Ms. Miho Hirose is Japanese nationality, her heirs shall be determined in accordance with Japanese Civil Code. And now, the Japanese family court has ordered Mr. Toshiaki Hirose, her heir, to acquire her account. Therefore, Mr. Toshiaki Hirose will become the party and we will act as and agent

    I’m sure that what I mentioned above has already been transmitted to a person in charge of this matter in the above addressed branch because I have already sent a couple of letters to the above address and received summary portion of the statement of the account owned by the decedent Miho Hirose.

    I have asked a couple of times in my letter sent to the above address to let me know the email address of a person in charge of this matter that I can directly contact or fax number to make the closure of the account owned by the decedent Miho Hirose complete as smoothly and soon as possible, but no matter how many times I have asked to let us know the email address in my letter, all we received are a couple of letters and summary portion of the statement without name who is in charge and direct contact email address on them. Just exchanging letters between someone we don’t know who is in charge of this matter in the above addressed branch will take much more time than exchanging emails to make this matter complete as soon as possible. So Mr. Kuzushi Hirose, a brother of the decedent Miho Hirose, is concerned about this matter of the closure of the account owned by the decedent Ms. Miho Hirose and often asks us how the state of progress regarding this matter, but we are at a loss to be able to answer nothing because no information from you is available, but just send us summary portion of the statement without the name of person in charge and his or her direct email address.So I have been struggling to find some ways to directly and quickly contact someone in charge of this matter, then we have reached this email address.

    You have told us in your letters sent to Mr.Toshiaki Hirose to give you a call if we have any questions, but I don’t think we can do this because of time difference between the U.S. and Japan. We need to stay at our office until late at night that is the last thing I want to do. So all things considered, the best way to complete this matter to meet our client’s need is letting us know the email address who is actually in charge of this case. If you cannot tell us the email address who is in charge of this matter, could you please send something in PDF form that can prove the state of progress regarding the closure of the account let our client know?

    Please find the attached letter from Mr. Vasanth Kumar dated May 30, 2018 and summary portion of the statement from June 1 to June 30 for your reference.

    We do hope you understand our current situation. We look forward to your reply soon.

    Sincerely,
    Atsushi Sato
