ASSUME OWNERSHIP OF FUND.

I am Barr. Fred Smith, counsel to Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd), former national security adviser. I am using this medium to request for your assistance in transferring ownership of the sum of $10.8m presently invested in Europe by my client. The fund is proceed from over inflated weapon purchase contracts awarded during my client's time as the national security adviser. My client has been in detention since 2015 with his properties and assets seized by the present government in power now.

Wherein this does not meet your interest, kindly express so, so that I can seek for the interest of someone else.

Your assistance is urgently needed to secure the fund from being discovered and seized by the government. Thus far, the Nigerian government has not traced this bank and it will remain so, to the extent that you are willing to work confidentially. I am offering 20% of the total sum for your assistance, 80% will be for my client. I assure you that this transaction is risk-free. More details will be availed to you upon your reply with required information.

As a former government official already facing trial, my client cannot afford to work on this project personally, that is why I have been instructed to find a foreign partner, secure and invest the funds until his release from detention and ready to assume ownership. You are also advised to reply swiftly if this proposition is acceptable to you. Fill out the below with your details.
