muslim when he was alive.As soon as he passed away, coupled with the
fact that, what i have and what is due to me might be taking away from me
by greedy family relations whose reasons is based on family tradition
and ethics i therefore decided to carefully moved out the fund which my
husband deposited from the bank where it was originally deposited with
the help of British diplomats and deposite it with a private
organization abroad.The amount of the fund is 10 million dollars.
Presently,this money is still with the the organization. I'm asking
your partnership to transfer the fund to your account.I took this
decision because I don't have any child and my husband relatives are not in
good terms with me.I don't want them to know about this development. With
