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. Nobody in my family has any interest in either of these. My Dad and my aunt's and uncle's see the car as a gas guzzling hunk of metal that tops out at 35 and don't want to…See More

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.
