This is to inform you that I came to Nigeria yesterday from USA, after series of complaint from the FBI and other Security agencies from Asia, Europe, South America and the United States of America respectively, against the Federal Government of Nigeria and the British Government for the high volume of fraudulent activities going in  both nations.

As directed by UN secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, we are working in collaborations with the Nigerian Financial Crime Commission/in order to get your overdue payment compensation fund  worth $2.5M only into your account without any delay as approved and instructed by United State Government and UNITED NATIONS.

Sincerely, you are a lucky person because I have just discovered that some top Nigerian and Canadian Government Officials are interested in your fund and they are working in collaboration with One Mr. Richard Graves from USA to frustrate you and thereafter divert your fund into their personal account.
