So it amazed me so much and then I went to the office of IMF Benin and reported this to them to know what is their view and they told me that bank former director Mike Koffi was the one that caused all this he collected money from people and then refuse to wire their funds to them, so my dear the Lord I serve will not allow such to happen here in my seat, so I hereby declare to you now to get us your full information so that your fund will be wired into your account immediately without wasting time, I do not like betraying people and no one will do such to me.
