what does the 'fine' relate to and who is it from?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's to do with overstay on visa. Her papers to leave, and the cost to 'keep safe' approximately 550kgs of raw gold. I said why cant she pay for safe keeping of gold when back in England

I fear that you are the victim of an internet scam.If you have actually met your wife and know her family in the Netherlands then I apologise, but I suspect that this is not the case.However if you wish to leave matters until Monday you can progress a refund from your side of the site
