Hello Friend, This is very important, it’s an urgent request from me, I am Firas Mohammad al-Golani the son of late Abu Mohammad al-Golani the Syria rebel leader who was killed in the ongoing Syria war and Al-Amir Gazi al-Haj was emerged as the new leader of the group,i just want to be free i am tired of fighting an endless war, Islam is a religion of peace i have planned to relocate abroad, this i successfully discussed with the United nation personnel’s who visited Syria early this year that i wish to abandon this war and the group, they advised me to do exactly as i have proposed, we had an agreement then i successfully handed over to them the sum of $52.6 million dollars as a familly treasure boxes so that i can use it to resettle overseas, but leaving my country Syria has been a problem for me as the rebels are giving me a close watch. The bothering issue right now is that the united nation personnel’s involved has told me to come and claim these fund as soon as possible before it would be confiscated and become history, i am so very confused right now and i am in-need of you or anybody around you who is capable of traveling to Malaysia to claim and safekeep this fund for me until i have the chance to leave Syria, i am ready to give out 15% of the total fund to such a person, i will let you know more as you indicate your interest.
