Asking about inheritance

Ok so this topic is a little wierd. At least for me, but here the situation. A few years before my grandpa died (two years ago) he bought 200 acres about an hour away from the main farm and a 1930 Durant car as part of what I guess you could call a retirement crisis. both of which obviously became my grandmas after he passed.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( johnyoofi12@yahoo.com.hk ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr.John.
