I donít need any telephone communication in this regard because of my present health condition. I have ($ 3.5 million, United States) which my late husband deposited for safe keeping to donate for the work of charity. As soon as I hear from you, I will give you the necessary legal information and also introduce you to my late husband's bank where this donation money was deposited and will also introduce you as my beneficiary so that you will contact them concerning the release of the money to your Bank account.
