Customer: My state if California,and the so called bank is supposed to be in Madrid Spain
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: The person who contacted me from the bank sent me all kind of documents,one says from the high court of justice Madrid ,Spain and another says Probate Order
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No I think that what ever he/she needs to see I can fax to you

Thank you for your question
