My company most times represents the interests of very wealthyInvestors/Individuals due to the sensitivity of the position they hold in the society and the unstable investment environment of our country, they evacuate majority of their funds into more stable economies and developed nations where they can get good yield for their money.
I was recently approached by a Reserved Client of mine, whom I had personally worked with a few years ago when he was a Finance Minister and wants me to source for a reliable and trustworthy individual such as yourself, who will be willing to receive money on his behalf abroad, and at the same time advise on what form of investment that will be embarked with the funds when perfectly received.
The client has offered these terms:
1. 25% commission paid to you upon receipt of the funds through the original sum to be transferred.The funds in question are $45.3Million US Dollars.
2. Your details will be used to have the funds evacuated and you will standas the principle owner of the funds and will deal directly with the Remittance Bank without the involvement of the Investor.
If these terms are agreeable to you, kindly let me know and I will provide you with all necessary information and procedures involved.
