Every arrangements has been well perfected
ON-BEHALF OF 100 SCAM VICTIMS
AFTER POLICE ARRESTED SOME FRAUDSTERS IN LAGOS.

Breakfast will be served.

Please bring valid identification
TO BE COMPENSATED
AS ONE OF THE VICTIMS OF CIRCUMSTANCES.
Enable me give you further
Ethical decision-making under fire
For the delivery of your consignment
ON A DIPLOMATIC MISSION TO NIGERIA.

MENTIONED YOUR PARTICULARS,
However note and conclude

To information.
