From: Chuks Jacob -

Dear Sir,

I am Barrister Chukwuma Jacob, attorney to one of your nationals who is an expatriate mechanical engineering contractor with the Shell Petroleum Company, hereinafter called "My client". He died in a car crash on 22/08/2005. Unfortunately, he did not leave any direct information that can locate his relatives and I am saddled with the responsibility.

However, every effort to locate relatives of my client (deceased) has proved abortive; I decided to contact you because you bear the same surname with my client thus I need your help to secure the release of his contract payment (US$7 million) which he left behind. The payment has long remained unclaimed and must be collected before the 7th December 2007 otherwise it would be reverted to the State by escheat. As it were, my late client left no direct information that can locate or identify his relatives; rather than leave the fund confiscated I plead your cooperation to help collect the fund as you bear the same surname with my client.

I have the required information and locus standi by all powers granted in applicable laws to carry out all provisions and procedures of this matter, and the privilege to obtain on your behalf a Grant of Representation from the Probate Registry which is to establish you "Heir" of my client and certify you to collect the fund. Please contact me as soon as possible, any time at 00234-803-8228488 or e-mail.

Yours faithfully,
Chukwuma Jacob
