Customer Question

I have a facebook friend who requested me. She is currently in Ivory Coast for legal procedures to gain access to her late fathers will and testament. Her father died 3 years ago and she has sent me a copy of the testament that says she will receive a £4million inheritance but the justice and notary in Ivory are asking her to pay £1600 to process the paperwork. Is this normal legal process

Run for the hills.

Can I clarify anything for you?
