earch as I was searching for a foreign reliable partner after series of pra=
yers and fasting.</FONT></STRONG><BR><STRONG><FONT size=3D3></FONT></STRONG=
&nbsp;<BR><STRONG><FONT size=3D3>&nbsp;I was divinely directed by the almi=

T></STRONG>&nbsp;<BR><STRONG><FONT size=3D3>&nbsp;In my department I discov=
ered an abandoned sum of $ 18 million U.S.A dollars in an account that belo=
ngs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in=
 a plane crash.</FONT></STRONG><BR><STRONG><FONT size=3D3>&nbsp;</FONT></ST=
RONG><BR><STRONG><FONT size=3D3>&nbsp;&nbsp; From the day this bank got thi=
s information about his death, this bank have expected his next of kin to c=
ome for the claim of his fund and no one comes because the only next of kin=
( his wife) died also.</FONT></STRONG><BR><STRONG><FONT size=3D3></FONT></S=
TRONG>&nbsp;<BR><STRONG><FONT size=3D3>&nbsp;As indicated in our banking po=
licy the bank cannot release his fund to anyone unless somebody applies as =
his next of kin or relation.</FONT></STRONG><BR><STRONG><FONT size=3D3>&nbs=

G>&nbsp;<BR><STRONG><FONT size=3D3>&nbsp; The request of foreigner as next =
