gets into your account.The worst part of it is that my uncle is trying to kill me because i refused to hand him over the documents covering this money, He has sold all my father's landed properties including his cars which rightful belong to me and now he want me to hand over the banking
document of my father in my possesion which i refused.Now he said that he will have this money by all means even if it means killing me, so because of this I ran away from home and hide in a hotel,pending when this money will be transfered so that i can leave the country for my
safty.Please,consider my proposal and get back to me soon including your direct telephone number so we can talk.
