Greetings, I am Professor Attahiru Mohammed Jega,the Chairman of the Independent Electoral Commission of Nigeria (INEC), I am in search of trustworthy collaborator and I believed that you can assist me in the transfer of Sixty Five Million and Eight Hundred Thousand US Dollars Only and to be subsequently invested in properties and trading in your country for our joint interest. It's important to bring to your knowledge that this money originated from the excess budgetary allocation we received from the government for the conducted general election in 2015 in Nigeria. This fund has been floating in our (INEC) account as an unpaid bill and I have decided to move it out of here with the collaboration of my key subordinates and your good self for our benefits. We have fashioned out the strategy for you to stand as a foreign contractor and supplier of the electoral implements that has not been paid so that the money will be approved in your name and paid to you for the "Contract of Supply" you have already completed in 2015 for the election.
