Quite recently I stumbled across some very important transactional documents in our great leader personal office showing some line of fund profiling from some of our donor countries.Specifically these documents revealed how $32,000,000.00 donation from Egypt was re-profiled by a London based cash management company called securitas cashmanagement ltd.The fund was moved to Italy but the value was not reflected in our accounts.I know about these opearations and the likes since after the Isrealis made freeze our accounts and refuse donor countries from getting funds across to our organisation.Our great leader then engaged securitas cashmanagement to assist in the various funds transfer to the organisation.However,this particular transaction was omitted in our accounts and this is the reason why I came to London to trace the fund. I am seeking your cooperation to assist me secure the fund since it is in Italy and I do not have papers to travel to Italy.Beside since I am privy to this information,I would like you to personally travel to Rome to access the fund in cash and then disburse as I will direct you later.You will be compensated with 30% of the amount if you accept to handle this transaction. Please let me know your thoughts abou this at your earliest possible time. I will be in London UK for two weeks and you can reach me on any of these numbers above.
