-Could you explain your situation a little more?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

A great aunt brought me to England over 10 years ago from Africa, as I was doing well in school. She helped train me with some help from others but the lion share from her. We had a very good relationship since and she was very proud of my as I did very well and graduated as a medical doctor 4 years ago. I meat a guy who I love and propose to get married to, but she has strong objections, about his tribe, about him not being a professional, and lots of things and the situation go ugly really. We have tried our best to reassure her, but she said I could not possibly marry him and got uncles back home involved and I have been threatened to end the relationship several times. When i explained I am am adult that its us not them who decides she got very upset, that i should pay her back £100,000 for all she used to train me and she wants it by the end of this month.


Thats the summary.

So she gave this money unconditionally but as she doesn't like this new man, she wants it back?
