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.
