Dear deadmanwalking 

I will answer pointing you to Stock Searcher International here is what they say they will do for

1. We will conduct a “stock search” to establish the current worth of
your bond or share certificates as investments and will also evaluate
their potential value as collectible items. As our name indicates, we
investigate securities issued worldwide.

2. If your securities have a recoverable value, we will advise you by
phone of the approximate amount involved. At that point, you can hire
us to take control of the recovery negotiations or you can try to
obtain the funds on your own. There is no up-front cost for us to get
involved. We will absorb all the expenses incurred and pay ourselves
back by keeping a 30% retainer fee from the final amount recovered. If
you decide to proceed by yourself, we will send you a summary report.
You will then have a six month grace period during which time you can
use our recovery services without having to pay a new research fee.

3. If your securities have no recoverable value, we will send you a
detailed report explaining our findings. We will also appraise the
potential collectible value of your original certificates and make you
a purchase offer accordingly.

4. “Money-Back” Guarantee. If we cannot establish whether or not your
old investments have current worth, we will refund the research fee in
full. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that every certificate we
investigate has recoverable value."

You can perform the search request on line or you can contact them at

research fee if they cannot determine the worth of your bond.
