From a letter dated June 15, 2012, discovered in a Saks Fifth Avenue shopping bag by a customer. This year, a man claiming to be the author was identified by DNAinfo.com. Samuel Eto’o is a Cameroonian soccer player with the English Premier League team Chelsea.

HELP! HELP! HELP!!

Hello!!

I’m Njong Emmanuel Tohnain, Cameroonian of nationality. I’m presently serving a 3 years imprisonment sentence in Qingdao City in Shandong province of China since the 11th of May 2011 for an alleged charge of fraud with unfair and unjustified judgment. I’ve been molested and tortured physically, morally, psychologically, and spiritually for all this while without any given chance to contact my family and friends. We are ill-treated and work like slaves for 13 hours every day producing these bags in bulk in the prison factory.

Please help me contact the United Nations Human Rights Department or if possible contact Samuel Eto’o Fils and let them know my sad story. I’m Eto’o’s fan club manager in the University of Yaoundé II. Thanks and sorry to bother you.
