The total amount in question is US$13.3Million (Thirteen Million Three Hundred Thousand United States Dollars), and it is presently deposited in FMRL security storage vault waiting for claim as a consignment belonging to our foreign associates.
So my client being a known political figure and a government official, he is not allowed to operate foreign bank account, my client also warned that he would want his name to remain a top secret to avoid criticizm. We have agreed to give you 20% of the total sum as commission for your Assistance/effort, while 80% will be invest under your recommendation and guide, also go into joint venture business with you. But I suggest you purchase properties / estate in your country, what will be the profit margin if you invest in properties / estate? I would greatly appreciate your assistance. If this proposal interests you, please email me. Furthermore send your full name as it appears in your passport that will be use to change beneficiary status to your name.
