Dear Friend, I guess this letter may come to you as a surprise since I had no previous correspondence with you. My Name is Prof. Maurice M. Iwu, Chairman Independent Electoral Commission (INEC). I am seeking your partnership in a mutual benefit project involving repatriation of funds amount in Millions of United States Dollars out from my country to your bank account for our mutual benefit of Equity Business Investment. The sum to be expended was derived from an allocation given to my commission during the 2007 General Elections which took place in my country. As Chairman of the commission, I am faced with petitions and probes for alleged misappropriation of fund allocated to my commission during the elections; hence I need a foreign partner to work with me in moving the said sum abroad. I will re-profile the said sum in your name/company with all related documents for easy transfer out from my country. Sincerely Yours. Prof. Maurice M. Iwu.
