Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
How did you get this account in Africa?
Ok I am just tryong to determine if out of the blue someone contacted you to tell you that you have this grant settlement and gave you access to this bank account, or was it something you had personally and voluntarily opened yourself in the past?
And have you been told what you need to do to get this clearance code?
Such codes are very commonly associated with scams. They do not actually exist and are just a way of getting money out of someone. So whT is likely to eventually happen is that they say the way to get a code is to pay a specified amount of money first and that would allow you to get the code and transfer the money to your bank account. The temptation of knowing that this is the only step before getting a much larger amount of money is what drives most people to pay it. But then they eventually realise that this was al a scam and they have now lost money without getting anything in return. At this stage i suggest you play along with them and see what their 'attorneys' say. If they eventually say that you ned to pay something to get this code then you basically know with certainty this is a scam and should stop any further contact or involvement with them.
