Before his death we were both born again Christians, When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of US $5.5million dollars.with Guaranty Trust Bank Plc in the Africa, Presently this money is still with the Bank, the management just send me a Next of Kin form as the beneficiary to fill it and get it scan to them for the release of this money or rather issue!
