I am an english man living in UK An Italian man has left me

Customer Question

I am an english man living in UK
An Italian man has left me a large sum of money
as appreciation of my agreement to undertake some charitable work
the funds were sent from his bank in Italy but were stopped
before arriving in my UK bank account because it has no charitable registration
The question is Can I set up a charity in the UK or must I do what a solicitor
in Italy states has to be an Italian Registration.
If you can assist me in any way even if it is to direct me to someone who can help me

Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
I assume that you never met this man and that the whole thing was a surprise
The reason I say that is that you are the victim of a scam.
There is no money and no problem with the bank.
