Please donít be surprised. I got the money from Sudan I was among the peacekeepers in Sudan. Rebels attacked the camp where we stayed so I and friend ran away with the box of money including the instruction manual. ( listen, I will tell you how I got the money when we meet and what the money is been used for in Sudan)
I left my wife and my two kids in Sudan and came to South Africa to invest the money and after investing the money I will go back to Sudan and bring my family.
