Presently I'm in New Delhi, India with the new partner for investment projects. Meanwhile,I did not forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in that fund transfer despite that it failed us at that time due to your doubts.Therefore,you should stop any correspondence with any person concerning the fund transfer.
