I and my late husband also agreed to render support to an unknown individual that we have not met before due to the fact that when we were still young in life we received an anonymous help from an individual we don’t know and we have not being able to know till date. I deposited a Cheque in the sum of £4,800.000.00 (Four Million Eight Hundred Thousand British Pounds) in a brown envelope as a parcel with DHL Express Courier Services UK over four weeks ago to be delivered to you.
