We agreed that one i do this,They would give me first $50,000.00 and give me another $150,000.00 when this fund reflects is in your choice account. when they saw that i have programmed it and your name was approved for payment, Instead of giving me the first deposit, they started avoiding me and resorted into threat so i had to delete the transfer code which is the only know to me because of my position,All other contractor fund and N.O.K payment were successfully paid apart from yours that is pending in my folder. When they saw that their threat did not work, They started bribing other low-key officials with your money to get another approval to effect transfer but they cannot succeed.
