Friends and uncles of my dad are suppose to be the ones to help me out of this but because they have betrayed the trust i laid on them by handling my parents wealth back in my country to the government in order to get their share which they really got living me and my younger brother with nothing, so i decided to seek for assistance abroad to help me out.
