- Claim: Employee Theft (John Maison)
- Company: Federal Insurance Company

Dear Mr. Pappas:

Please be advised that I have completed my review of the Proof of Loss materials forwarded in support of the above-referenced claim. Accordingly, I propose the below settlement offer.

As you are aware, Korean War Veterans Association ("KWVA") alleges that former elected treasurer John Maison engaged in a number of schemes to defraud the Veterans Association. To date, although KWVA claims that Maison embezzled more than $300,000, KWVA has only submitted documentation substantiating $132,879.19 of the claim. Accordingly, I am willing to partially settle this matter for $131,879.19, which takes into consideration KWVA’s $1,000 deductible. I have taken the liberty of enclosing a Partial Release & Assignment. Please execute the same and return it to my attention. Upon receipt of an executed Partial Release & Assignment, I will immediately forward the proceeds of the claim.

Most importantly, please be mindful, that KWVA must submit the required documentation, which may substantiate the remaining portion of the claim. Should we not receive the required documentation on or before June 15, 1998, I will have no other choice than to close my file on this matter.

Greg A. Ray, Esq
Bond Claim Attorney
