MAY GOD BLESS YOU. – [email protected]
Dear I am a widow with a daughter and I am looking for a good and reliable person who will not betray me but help and bring me and my only daughter out of this wicked country. My late husband left some amount of money ($2, 000,000,00) in a bank for us before he died in a car accident and since after his death, his relative has been trying to claim everything for themselves because I do not have a male child. If you can help me receive this fund in your bank account and bring us to start a new life with you in your country, I am ready to abide by your term and condition provided you will be honest to me. I wait to hear from you. Mrs.suzan If you are interested then contact me by email, [email protected] suzanboni – [email protected]
