Thank you for your question

My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you

It is a fraud I am afraid and there is no money due to go into your account.

If you have given your bank details then I suggest that you contact your bank and warn them

Please ask if you need further details

I am sorry but your "friend" is not real and you are the victim of a scam designed to take your money

not to make an investment here or anywhere else

If you do make payment then I am afraid that the demands will simply grow - and you will never receive the money you are expecting
