Before the death of my husband in Damascus Central Hospital he called the attention of me and my son, he disclosed to us that he have some money in a security/financial company oversea,he intended to build refinery. he instructed me to look for an honest trustworthy and reputable person who can help us invest this money oversea until the war in Syria is over. He instructed us not to allow anybody in Syria to be aware of the money and our oversea investment. Because of security reasons.The war in Syria is getting out of hands people are dieying every minute and we have received warning that the government is planning to use strong bomb weapons. I have decided with all my heart to give you 20% of the total money if you can help us with all your heart to get the money out of the security company and help us to invest the money in profitable investments in your country. 10% of the money will be to settle taxes and any expenses that may occur during and after the transaction. And 70% will be for me and my son. Please we are trapped here we don't have any thing left with us, the government have bombed every where, it is hard for us to eat, there is nothing left.
