How are you today? I went to Nigeria yesterday for a program called (Empowering students to handle conflicts and promote peace in West Africa).And I have gotten my self stranded here because my wallet is missing and my ATM card and other valuable things like my I.D card is missing along with the wallet.

I needed to pay for my hotel fee but do not have anything on me right now,please I want you to help and send about $3500 to help me pay some bills here and get my flight ticket back and I will return the money back as soon as I get to back to Thailand by Monday Morning.

Please I need to hear from you soon so that I will send you the information you will be sending the money to me through MoneyGram, but the problem is that I have gone to the MoneyGram outlet here where I was told that I can’t used my international passport to get the money pick up because is one of their rules here so I decided to use a good friend of mine here who is a professor of the university of Lagos here by the name Prof Mustafa Farooq so please you will be sending the money to he information to help me get the money picked up in MoneyGram here.

Please be rest assured that I will pay back as soon as I arrive New Thailand by Monday Morning and please understand that your help is much needed right now because am very stranded now.

Waiting to hear from you.

Thanks for the effort
