Before his death he deposited the sum of $5MUSD (Five Million United States Dollars)?in a private security Company?which was for the importation of cocoa processing machine.Note, according to my late husband the money is in a trunk box and he did not disclose to the security company the real content of the box he did it to reduce the cost of demurrage fees and for the safety of the fund according to him,?he decleared to the security company that the box contains a family valuables.

I want you to do me a favour, to help?me invest this fund in a benefitable investment in your country as I do not?have any knowledge of investment, that will be after we retreive it from the?security company which i also need your help to claim this?money from the security company.Have you any plans to do investment in your country?
