My brother has worked with a devout Muslim eight

Customer Question

My brother has worked with a devout Muslim for about eight years ,who is known to give his money to charities in Afghanistan and Pakistan . My brother has a high opinion of this chap . My brother contracted terminal cancer and discussed donating to charity . His friend advised him that big charities have high overheads and that only a small proportion of donations make it too the people who need it . He then explained that he knew small charities where most of the money made it to the poor people who made it .
Four months before his death my brother who has no dependants , signed a notice of wish that named his friend the sole beneficiary for his pension pot of £446,000 .
Would this qualify as a fraud ?
