The said amount is (7.5 million pounds) which is about ($15 million US Dollars). As it might interest you to know, I got your contact through international business inquiry and my search for a trust worthy business partner that can handle a business of this magnitude meanwhile all arrangement to put claim to this fund in your name as the bona fide next of kin to the deceased, and get the required approval to transfer this money to a foreign account, have been put in place.
