A Nigerian politician offered the scholar a once in a lifetime business opportunity that could provide wealth for both parties if Carter could make a small initial investment. Carter needed the money to finance his research into obscure Polynesian cultures, especially references to a strange god named "Cthulhu"...
TL;DR version: A Nigeran 419 scammer tries to defraud HP Lovecraft fan and gets NYPD Blues/Cthulhu Mythos fanfiction instead.
