Please someone help me on how I can open an offshore bank account in the UK while I am here in Africa Nigeria as a Nigerian who is non-resident in the UK. I have been to the UK and I have an international passport. I got involved in some legit business while in the United Kingdom and it was success. Now I am entitled to some payments as they call it.

However, the payment requires I have a UK bank account before payment is made. I will not be going to the UK soon. But I need a UK bank account very soon. Someone please help me.

Please share...
