months later I invited him to London and under my professional guidance and based on my advice he made a fixed deposit of 15, 000, 000, 00 Million Great Britain Pounds sterling at a financial institution. This deposit was for 12 months and upon maturity I made effort to contact my client, I could not reach him or any member of his family.
