Dear Truong,

I am BARRISTER P.T.GEORGE , a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney to Mr. Patrick Truong a national of your country, who used to work for National Electric Power Authority(N.E.P.A.) in Nigeria. Here in after shall be referred to as my client. On the 21st of April 2001,my client, his wife and their only daughter were involved in a car accident along Ikorodu express road.

All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After theseseveral unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the Internet,to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you.

I have contacted you to assist in repartrating the fund valued at US$12.5million left behind by my client before it gets confisicated or declared unserviceable by the Bank where the above amount were deposited. The said Bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confisicated within the next twenty one official working days.
