Spammed again with the oldest of old schemes it seems that I the “undisclosed-recipients” have inherited (1.2,000,000,00 GBP); quite a sum; not sure how much it is but it seems like a lot.

I would love to contact Mr.Williams Moore but should I email him at attorney_williams@yahoo.it or williammoore01@gmail.com? Surely one of my readers would be able to inform me on this one. I can’t let this one slip away; I have passed on perhaps 500 million this year and this one is just too good to be true, don’t you think?

    I received a similar letter just the other day. I have been trying to think of the angle for the scam. I received a letter months ago concerning a person that had my last name and the person that was contacting me wanted to share the money with me if I would claim it even though I was not actually related to the deceased. I looked that up on the NET and it said the angle was down the road they would ask for money for legal fees…..try to get your bank account to empty it. I wrote the person back and said that there would probably be lots of fees down the road so they should contact someone else. Haven’t heard from them since. This one is a little different. The information they are asking me for is information they could find out on their own with a little research I imagine. My letter is so similar to yours I am sure that it is a scam I just wanted it not to be. This is for 3,000,100 US dollars. If you find out anything more about this scam could you send me the information? Thanks

    Judith,

    There are perhaps a hundred or more versions of this scam in circulation. If you should receive anything similar in the future just delete, do not even respond. Scammers have used this format “inheritance angle” for years. As you say they may ask for legal fees or transfer fees, even for personal bank information in order to complete the transaction. If you send a nickle to these scammers, they will ask for a dime. There are numerous people that have lost thousands to these bums, glad you aren’t one and remember if it sounds too good to be true well….

    Hi,

    I have also received this email. I have looked at comments of several others as well that received similar or identical letters via the email.

    I never release any personal information over the email unless it is directly to my bank on an encrypted site or it is a well known and trusted site.

    They just ask for way too much information on first contact without proving legitimacy of their offer from someone I’ve never heard of before. I’d rather chance losing this money than what I’ve worked so hard to build over the years.

    Cindy

  4. gariell says:

    Cindy,

    Well said and I agree with you whole heartily. If someone wants to give you that kind of money let them talk to your accountant and lawyer first, then see how fast they run.

    Cheers,
    Gariell

    While reading the letter I noticed a couple of things. Frist, the chances of someone dying a leaving an estate or trust with an exact amount of money, such as $1,000,100 is beyond rare. It could be a specific gift, but why the extra $100, if not to look authentic. Second, distributions are made after everything is paid. There is no reason to pay any advance fees, all fees, costs and taxes are paid before distributions are made. Finally, ask for the address of the court, trustee or bank. You can write directly so they know your address. They can send you a check.

    Regards,
    Phil

  6. gariell says:

    Phil,
    Thanks for your comments. I do however, recommend that people not contact these scammers at all. One thing is certain no legitimate institution would ever contact and correspond with an individual via open ended email, certainly not when millions are involved.

    A death certificate, not bad. We have seen cases in the past where scammers have sent emails to respondents that included photos but this one’s pretty funny.
    However, we always suggest that you not respond at all, keep the delete button hot.
    Thanks for passing this one on to our readers.

    I received an email regarding an estate with a letter nearly identical to those above. I told them that they had to send everything via regular u.s. mail and/or email was not sufficient notice in probate law under United States laws. I figured something had to be up. What can we do? I don’t expect to hear from them again since there were also spelling errors and the email stated the Will had not been “executed” yet the decedent had already DIED. That was also a tip.

    I also received a grant of GBP9.2 Million in an email from Dr.Asha-Rose Migiro exactly similar to te ones reproduced here. Asha is my country Woman although she seems to have been married to a Hispanic and hence uses his last name. So I trusted her and thought my luck has changed. So I replied both to her and to Barrister Keith Rapper at his email Address. I also tried to fax my reply to the Fax numbers he sent to me and all the others he writes to or wrote to. It turned out that the fax number is fake. The faxes do not go throughHe replied right away asking me to send him the information he asked others and also asked me to send GBP180 or GBP186 (I don’t remember). I wrote back asking Barrister Keith Rapper to make the request by Mail on his letterhead and on the letterhead of the United Nations Association. I doubt he’ll reply now. I’m sure glad I checked the Yahoo Search Engine about this guy Keithy Rapper. All these blacks always claim to have a doctorate degree and make me very suspicious. But in this email the person uses Dr. prefix was an ndian we call Desi (actually Desi means national. But ndians use it to describe each other. Like I’m a desi to another Indian. I would not be desi to an American although I’m an Amerian Citizen. I’m shocked that My Desi woman would try to swindle me.

    I thouhgt this might have had some merit because the barrister mentioned that Fernando Sergio Morales was a member of the IEEE which I am as well, but now I see that it is a true scam.

    FROM THE DESK OF: Abogados David James, ESQ….
    May 11th , 2008.
    Madrid Spain
    +34 634 113 777
    Dear Beneficiary ,
    We acknowledge the receipt of your email in this chamber and also
    want you to know that you have absolute right to reject this WILL
    as much as you have the right to accept it as well. If you wish to turn
    it down then let me know so I can send you a WILL rejection form to
    fill and revert to this office. I am not going to impose it on you
    but I am just doing my job here.
    I can imagine that the late Engr. Fernando Sergio Morales must have known
    that you will put the money to good use for the less privileged of the society
    that is why he selected you. I do not know you neither have I met you
    before, but my contacting you is based on the recommendation of
    late Engr. Fernando Sergio Morales.
    Be further informed that these funds will not be released to you
    without some proper identification. I have never met you before
    like I said and to be able to carry out our duties effectively as
    sole executors of the WILL of Late Fernando Sergio Morales,
    We must be convinced that you are who the testament says
    you are. Hence please re-confirm to us through fax or via email;
    your full contact details to include your full name and address,
    telephone and fax number (if any) and if you have moved to a new
    address then indicate both the new and old one for my verification
    with what I have in my file. Any difference or discrepancies in the
    information provided by you will mean that I am contacting the wrong
    person and I will stop all communication with you out rightly.
    Your information would be taken to the probate division of the
    International Court of Justice for verification. After the confirmation,
    the probate division would now release your letter of administration
    for claims to these bequest/funds. This document as well as the
    Certificate of Deposit issued by the Security Deposit Bank to
    Engr. Fernando Sergio Morales when the funds were deposited by him will then
    be released to you; this will give you the legal backing to receiving
    these funds.
    We sincerely hope that the above requirement be sent to us soon
    so we can proceed with the documentation. And note that we cannot
    send any document to you until we are fully convinced that we have the
    true beneficiary.
    Thank you for your anticipated co-operation.
    Yours Faithfully,
    David James, Esq.
    Barrister @ Law
    P.S We have limited period to conclude this so I can move on to the next
    beneficiary on the WILL of my late client

    I have been contacted by this so called Barr. David James, ESQ. I feel he is a fraud and wish to advise everyone who gets an e-mail from him to delete it ASAP. It is sad that someone would use a death certificate to “steel” from some poor unsuspecting person who may be trying to do good in the world. Attorneys get bad raps all the time and this is the reason. If you get an e-mail name you as a beneficiary of Mr. Fernando Sergio Morales, disregard it. It is a fraud!!

    NOTIFICATION OF BEQUEST

    On behalf of the Trustees and Executor of the estate of Late Engr.
    Fernando Sergio Morales;
    I once again try to notify you as my earlier letter returned
    undelivered.
    I hereby attempt to reach you again by this same email address on the
    WILL. I wish to notify you that late Engr. Fernando Sergio Morales
    made you a beneficiary to his WILL. He left the sum of Six Million One
    Hundred Thousand Dollars (USD$6,100.000.00 ) to you in the codicil
    and last testament to his WILL.
    This may sound strange and unbelievable to you, but it is real and
    true. Being a widely traveled man, he must have been in contact with
    you in the past or simply you were recommended to him by one of his
    numerous friends abroad who wished you good. Engr. Fernando Sergio Morales
    until his death was a member of the Helicopter Society and the
    Institute of Electronic & Electrical Engineers. He had a very good
    heart and loved to give out.
    His great philanthropy earned him numerous awards during his life
    time. Late Engr.Fernando Sergio Morales died on the 13th day of
    December,2005 at the age of 80 years, and his WILL is now ready for
    execution.
    According to him this money is to support your humanitarian activities
    and to
    help the poor and the needy in our society. Please if I reach
    you this time as I am hopeful, endeavor to get back to me as soon as
    possible to
    enable me conclude my job.
    I hope to hear from you in no distant time through the email address
    below.

    I too received similar…the angle’s simple. Our greed for easy money, and these guys con susceptible people (i.e., people that think they are special enough to have stumbled into a once in a life chance for millions), and it works.Their scam is based on percentages…1 out of a 1,000 or whatever ( I would hope 1 out of 4 billion) will respond. Don’t even respond, contact even to point out how ridiculous and riddled with errors their “once in a lifetime offer” would be a win for them too, and they can glean that much more info. And all of it starts out by you contacting them. Don’t bother, don’t let them practice and learn anything. Just ban the IP, report it if possible to the host, and just laugh at it.

    What’s a new twist on this old scam is now they use Spell Checker :)

    LOL..a law firm with a hotmail account. I’m sorry, but a law firm handling Millions of the United Nations (cough) Association should have their own domain. And that’s accepting that the best and brightest of the world’s ambassadors and emissaries would decide a random email drawing would work best for improving all the problems of the world :)

    And regarding above post of person who was trying to “confirm” and get more “information” from these people. Stop, stop, stop…it is they who are becoming informed about you…there is no “information” you can get from them, it’s a scam. I repeat, it’s a scam!!!

    I saw your contact and profile i decided that you could cooperate with me in this proposition.I have a client who was deceased in July 14, 2004, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.I am contacting you because you have the same surname as my deceased client and i felt that you could help me in the distribution of funding that were left in my deceased client’s bank account. This funds is closed to be declared UN-serviceable by the bank as there were no indicated next of kin or next of beneficiary of the funding in the bank account.

    The bank had issued to me a notification to contact the next of kin of my deceased client for either to re-activate the bank account or to make claim of beneficiary of the funding in the bank account, with a month surcharge of 6% to be deducted as an Escrow safe keeping fee of the bank account,so as to avoid the indefinite closure of the bank account.

    My proposition to you is to seek your consent, and to present your kind self as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my deceased client, since you have the same last name with him.

    This means that the proceeds of his bank account would be paid to you as his next of kin or the legitimate beneficiary. When the proceeds in his bank account are paid to you, we would share the proceeds on a mutually agreed-upon percentage of 60% to me and 40% to your kind self.

    All the legal documents to back up your claim as my client’s next-of-kin would be provided by me. The most important thing I would need is your honest cooperation in this proposition.This would be done under a legitimate arrangement that would protect you from any breach of the law.

    If this business proposition offends your moral and ethic values, do accept my sincere apology. Please contact me at once if you are interested by replying the mail and ignore it if you are not.

    Best regards,

    Amir Hariz Dennis Esq.

    Dear Friend,

    How are you doing today? I just came back from Patrol duty with my unit got your mail,please accept my deepest apology for contacting you in this manner over a transaction of this magnitude, but because I am very desperate to have this funds transferred to a safe location,I salute your courage in helping a man who is sincerely in need of your help. I do hope that I am able to become part of civilization again. I say this because I have faced a lot of horrors here and have seen my comrades and friends either killed or fatally injured. You begin to wonder what the value of human life is when you see people around you doing desperate things to kill their fellow humans. I do not know how to draw a picture of the happenings here and do not intend to start painting one as it won’t be a pretty sight. I just pray that majority of US here; US Soldiers, get to go back home to their families alive without any unpleasant luggage both bodily and mentally. To lay down ones life for his fellow human and for Love of Country is the Ultimate sacrifice and this I have sworn to do as a Marine Corps Officer but do bear it in mind that there is nothing that can compensate our families for the horrors that we the US Soldiers go through in Iraq.

    I want to assure you that this project is real, and one hundred percent risk free and does not relate to any breach of law or proceed from drugs. It is a matter of necessity to contact you for assistance without any further investigations about your person, it is therefore necessary that you tell me a little about yourself, I hope no form of betrayal will be experienced in the course of our collaboration? Since I need a foreigner in this transaction, I must give you my trust this transaction is no joke and such opportunity comes once in a life time. As stated in my last email to you, we plan on using diplomatic means to shipping the money out of Iraq as military cargo into Europe, using diplomatic immunity by means of a German diplomat who enjoys diplomatic immunity as a United Nations worker. He has been transferred out of Iraq and is to start work in Europe. My intention is to have the package sent to you from within Europe via a Special Security Firm who handles the prompt delivery of confidential valuables goods for the military, based in Europe; The German diplomat is to arrive Europe with the Package any time soon. I will inform you when the package is dropped off and brief you of any new developments. Be informed that the diplomat is not privy (unaware) of the contents of the package and is only holding it in safe keeping for me until instructed further. I want to inform you that I will not able to call you on phone because our entire squad has access to only one telephone line which is not convenient for this transaction.

    SOURCE OF MONEY:
    Some money in various currencies was discovered and concealed in barrels with piles of weapons and ammunition at a location near one of Saddam Hussein’s old Presidential Palaces during a rescue operation and it was agreed by all party present that the money be shared amongst us.This might appear as an illegal thing to do but I tell you what? No compensation can make up for the risks we have taken with our lives in this hell hole. The above figure was given to me as my share and to conceal this kind of money became a problem for me, so with the help of a German contact working with the UN here(his office enjoys some immunity)I was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot.He does not know the real contents of the package as he believes that it belongs to an American who died in an air raid,
    before giving up trusted me to hand over the package to his close relative.

    I do believe that for this venture of ours to be fruitful, there must be a strong mutual understanding between both parties, so I will require that you provide me with any information about yourself for acquaintance purposes ONLY so that I can know a bit about you since I would be trusting you with a very large responsibility and entrusting in your care a huge amount of money. As regards this mutually benefiting business of ours I am inclined to share the money with you in a 70%, 30% ratio. The 70% would go to me and the rest which is 30% would be for you, I believe that this will keep you from refusing to give me my own share of the funds which is to be held in good faith by you until a time I would be able to collect it from you. I hope to hear from you soonest with the information about yourself (Name, Full Contact Address, Occupation, Age and Id might be a good option). Do take care of yourself and pray for the Ones who are fighting the good fight for Country and Humanity. I await your urgent response.

    These people sent me a strange letter also. I really don’t like it when people use GOD. But, this Barrister Adam Williams I guess was pretending to be this dying man, whom did not want to leave his family his money. He asked me to in the name of GOD to please give this money to widows, families who are in need. To please help the needy. And that he prayed on this. And he is hoping I would do the right thing. And he would give me 10% of the money.(6,500,000.00) That’s when he gave me the barrister Adam Williams email address to reach. After I read it I typed in his name and found you guys. It is a real shame. But I did spam it. If it was real I can assure you they would call you and set up an appointment for you. And a real attorney will call, and if they are out of state or country they will come to you. And their half , or their fees are already taken out. Lisa

    I get at least one of these a week. My favorite was the one that actually asked for my bank acct # and routing #. I don’t know why my husband hid all the bank info from me . I mean we were almost rich that time too. He keeps telling me its all a scam but surely these people trying to give me these millions every week are really sincere people. Ha Ha

  62. Lorenzo says:

    I received the following email. Very much like the other scams. I even talked to him on the phone, but he sure didn’t sound like an “Andrew Gilbert”. When he said I would need to pay $2500 up front for document fees I knew it was a scam. He did speak english well and tried to play on Christianity, how would need faith for this to take place, blah blah. Here’s the letter:

    FROM THE DESK OF: ANDREW GILBERT
    HSBC BANK, KUALA LUMPUR
    MALAYSIA.

    Dear Friend,

    I am Mr. Andrew Gilbert the Director in charge of Auditing section of HSBC Bank Malaysia . Forgive my indignation if this message comes to you as a surprise. I have decided to contact you on a project that will be very beneficiary to both of us. During our auditing in this Bank, I came across some amount of money belonging to a deceased foreigner Mr. Sheu Yuan-dong who died with his wife and their only daughter on February 16, 1998 in a plane crash.

    The fund has been dormant in his account with this Bank without any claim of the funds in our custody from his relation before my discovery to this development. He was the Governor of Taiwan Central (Reserve) Bank. The said amount was sixteen Million Six Hundred Thousand united state dollars ($16.600 000mUSD).I want you to know that I never master minded the death of the deceased fellow. Their death occour naturally. Please View this website: http://www.cnn.com/WORLD/9802/16/taiwan.crash.update2/

    All the arrangement to put claim over this fund as the Bonafide next of kin to the deceased, has been put in place and directives will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist me and also benefit your self to this great business opportunity. In this country as a civil servant (A Banker), we are not allowed to operate a foreign account.

    This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin to the Bank and also present a foreign account where he will need the money to be re-transferred into on his request. Our Banking law stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after (10 years), the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed funds. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner.

    Upon your acceptance to carry on this task more information will be made known to you, and the said fund will be share in the ratio of 60/40 %

    There after I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. Please you have been advised to keep “top-secret” as I am still in service and intend to retire from service after I conclude this deal with you. I will fly down to your country or any place we shall agreed on for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further investment will be discussed if there is any reason for that.

    Upon your acceptance to this proposal kindly get back to me through my personal email address (andrew_gilbert1@hotmail.com) and also furnish me with the requested information below.

    YOU’RE NAME…………………….
    AGE……………………………
    OCCUPATION………………..
    YOUR HOME ADDRESSES…………
    HOME TELEPHONE…………………

    PRIVATE TELEPHONE…………………..
    I look forward to receive your urgent reply.

    Andrew Gilbert.

    This is one of them that i have recieved and not fallen for but i have fallen for one tho.

    Greetings!
    I am Mr Brandy Proctor. I have been waiting for you since to contact me
    for your Confirm-able Bank Draft of $800.000.00 United States Dollars,
    but I did not hear from you since that time. Then I went and deposited
    the Draft with National Alliance Trust Bank, West Africa, I traveled out of
    the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not come back till end of
    September. What you have to do now is to contact the Online Paying Bank as
    soon as possible to know when they will transfer your package to you
    because of the expiring date. For your information, I have paid for
    the Account Activation charge, Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee
    of the Cheque showing that it is not a Drug Money or meant to sponsor
    Terrorist attack in your Country. The only money you will send to the
    paying bank to transfer this amount to your bank account in
    your country is ($150.00 US) Dollars only being COT Fee
    of the transfer so far. Again, don’t be deceived by any body
    to pay any other money except$150.00 US Dollars. I would have paid that but they
    said no because they don’t know when you will contact them and in case
    of dumorrage.

    In contacting the paying bank you are to send them your Full Name, Address and Country.

Has anyone heard of this. Please help

  68. gariell says:

    Eddie,
    Before you send a dime, better read the contents of the inheritance scams category . You may save yourself a lot of misery. Have you ever heard of someone having to pay in order to receive an inheritance? I haven’t it’s just not logical. Ask yourself why anti-terrorist clearance has anything to do with an inheritance. Guess what! It doesn’t! It’ a scam.

    hi

    There are perhaps a hundred or more versions of this scam in circulation. If you should receive anything similar in the future just delete, do not even respond. Scammers have used this format “inheritance angle” for years. As you say they may ask for legal fees or transfer fees, even for personal bank information in order to complete the transaction. If you send a nickle to these scammers, they will ask for a dime. There are numerous people that have lost thousands to these bums, glad you aren’t one and remember if it sounds too good to be true well

    I too recieved an email back in May and ater already paying money i found this web site and took on bored everything i have read and feel so stupid for falling for it so i closed my email and bank account and then changed my phone number so this so called barrister peony lye esq can not contact me any more my only concern now is that he has my address.

  80. gariell says:

    Sarah,

    Sorry to hear that you lost some honest money to a scum bag; but rest assured that you are not the only one who has been victimized. You did the right thing by changing your bank account and email. As for your address, well don’t worry about that, it is public knowledge. The most that anyone can do with that is maybe send you a scam by snail mail. Since you know what to look for now, shouldn’t be a problem.

    Cheers

  86. Chieblo Durante says:

    It sounds so real. What do I do? Cant I create another bank account so that I don’t get burnt. I don’t mind waisting some time, but there is always a 1 percent chance.

    This is what I have received so far:

    Dear Chieblo Durante,

    Please be informed that I have received the filled Oath Form and will proceed to the High Court for the filing/entry of the Sworn Affidavit on your behalf with the informations you provided and hopefully, the Sworn Affidavit/Change of Ownership will be approve in your favour. As soon as this is done, I shall send you a copy of it and keep the original with me to enable me use it to apply for other documents on your behalf.

Please kindly find attached herewith a copy of your late uncle’s ( late Mr. Emas Durante ) death certificate and a copy of my identity. If you have any enquiry, don’t hesitate to call or write to me.

    Regards,
    Barr.Simon H. Tan.

  87. gariell says:

    Chieblo,

    Do yourself a favour and forget about it. If you respond all you will be doing is letting the bottom feeders know that you may be a potential victim they can exploit and scam.
    As for the 1 percent, no go 100 percent scam.

    Cheers

  88. Winterfire says:

    OMG… I know someone right now who has fallen for the inheritance scam… They just told him he needs to send $5400 so he can get a money laundry certificate before funds can be deposited to his bank account. This on top of so many other document fees and inheritance taxes. They keep telling him he will recoup his money from the supposed $13 million he is going to get. God knows how much money he has already sent. I can’t seem to convince him that this is all a scam.

  89. gariell says:

    Winterfire,

    Tell the poor soul to visit the site and their is no doubt that he is getting scammed. I will gladly offer him all the resources available to convince him that he is a victim of the bottom feeders.
    Glad that you are looking out for a friend and took the time to visit our site, the Big Guy is thanking you.
    We have had correspondence from all kinds of people, professionals, accountants, stay at home moms and simply everyday happy people inquiring about matters of this nature.
    These scams are all over the net and there is no doubt that they will continue to circulate.
    Stay vigilant and remember “If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.” This is a tired and used phrase but it has no age. Logic will prevail.

    Dear Friend

    my name is Audi Hamilton undergoing medical treatment in South Rand Hospital , Gauteng. south africa.i am married to dr. Graham Hamilton who worked with british judical commission in england. We were married for fifteen years without a child. Before his death on the 5th of july 2004.he made a vow to use his wealth for the less privileged.he deposited the sum of 3.5 million pounds with one security company in europe.presently, his money is still with the company.recently, my doctor told me that i will not last for the next 4 months due to a rare form of cancer of the pancreas but what disturbs me most is my stroke.i have decided to donate this funds to a god fearing person who will utilise it as my husband wished.I understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not inclined to helping poor persons and I do not want my husbands hard earned money to be misused or spent in the manner in which my late husband did not specify. I do not want a situation where this money will be used in an ungod ly manner, hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of deathhence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Almighty. I do not need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health, and because of the presence of my husband’s relatives around me always. I do not want them to know about this development. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Finance/Security Company in Europe. I will also issue you a letter ofauthority that will empower you as the original beneficiary of this fund. I want you to always pray for me and Please assure me that you will act according to my specification herein.I shall provide you with more detailed explanation on the situation of things after I have received your positive response to assist through this and honestly too. Note= direct yourresponse to this email for more information and for sake of confidentiality [ audihamilton@j-mail.info ]

    I anxiously await your reply

    Just looking out things

  110. Dear Beloved one in Christ

    My greetings to you and your lovely family, I am Mrs. Winifred Johnson, suffering from cancerous ailment.

    I was married to Mr. Raphael Johnson who migrated from your country. My husband worked with Chevron/Texaco in London United Kingdom for twenty years before he died in the year 2005. My late husband deposited the sum of $7, 500, 000. 00 Million (Seven Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) with a financial institution in London before his death which I am soliciting your assistance to claim and use for the up keeping of widows and charities in your country.

    I am a single mother suffering from cancerous ailment. Recently, my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live due to the stroke and cancerous problems I am suffering from. I have decided to donate this fund to you and want you to use my husband efforts to fund the up keeping of widows and charities in your country. My husband told me a lot of good things in your country but is unfortunate that I have not visited with him before his death and based on that I have decided to donate the fund there for the up keeping of widows and charities.

    I took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives here are into radical organization and I don’t want a situation where this money will be used in an unholy manner. Therefore, child of God, if you are honest and faithful enough to use this fund strictly for the work of God, your response will be highly appreciated. I awaiting your urgent reply and God blessed you as you forward your reply for more details.

    email mrs.winifredjohnson@hotmail.com

    Sincerely,
    Sister in Christ
    Mrs. Winifred Johnson

    heres is anothe example of this tipe of mails
    This is for your attention.

    I wish to notify you again that you were listed as a beneficiary to the
    total sum of (Four million Six hundred thousand British Pounds) of the deceased (names now withheld since this is my second letter to you). I contacted you because you bear the same surname identity and therefore can present you as the beneficiary to the inheritance funds.

    All the legal papers will be processed in your acceptance. In your acceptance of this deal, I humbly request that you forward to me your letter of acceptance with your full names, your current telephone and fax numbers and a forwarding to enable us file necessary documents at
    our high court probate division for the release of this sum of money to
    you.

    I will provide you with full details upon confirmation of receipt of your reply.

    Yours faithfully,

    Hey Guys,

    Im going through a scam at the moment,it was also recorded as one of the most advanced scams,the lawyer guy known as hazan dakota,he insisted me to pay the bank charges showing me a document from a reputed bank,however i told the lawyer that i wont bear a single cost until the deal ends with my empty bank account full.
    He was really annoyed and he dashes the phone saying have a nice day.Now 2 months have gone and there was no response,i all of a sudden receive a mail from the USA giving me a website as http://www.fsaa.info, saying that they have taken ful responsibilities to send the inherited fund immediately with no further delays,they have not requested for any bank charges as such.
    Besides that my so called lawyer sent his ID card coppy as well,was wondering if it was forged like how we provide our details.
    You guys can add me on facebook Yaqoub Issadeen,i can show you the amazing documents i retrieved from them.U’ll be shocked cause the scammers is taking there business to the new era,currently i’m developing a system to track there IP’s and hack into it with a bug to track them.
    If any of you guys like to surport me on it please let me know.

  113. Misty says:

    Hi I recently received one of these emails from Barr. Aubert and responded back to them. I went through almost the whole thing before realizing it was a scam. I DID not send any money nor did they ask me for money. I also did not send any bank account info. I did however give them my Driver’s license number and my date of birth. Is there anything they can do with that? I have subscribed to identity theft protection. I felt really stupid after figuring this out. I am normally a smart person but it all seemed so real they even sent me a confirmation letter from CIMB bank. I went to the banks website and sent the email I received to their fraud email account. They responded back and confirmed that their bank had nothing to do with the email sent. They have not sent me anything since so i’m worried they could do something with my driver’s license number.

  114. gariell says:

    Misty,

    You did the right think by contacting the bank and there is not a heck of a lot that the bottom feeders can do with your driver’s licence number. If I wanted it today, very simple, do not have to ask you for it.

    Relax, you uncovered the bottom feeder before the scum bag stold you identity.

    Cheers

    I received the very same scam via email today and found it to be quite humorous… Lets face it -“if it sounds too good to be true that because 99.9999% of the time it is!” So during these tough times it’s always good to get a nice hearty laugh out of life….
    SHAME ON ANYONE WHO ALLOWS THEMSELVES TO BE DECEIVED SO EASILY……These are extremely stupid scams……..

  116. Darline says:

    this Barrister person seems to change names more often than I change underwear and that’s at least once a day. I’ve been getting emails from him and I’ll share them with you. I’ve only given the information anyone can get on the internet, my name, phone, address. Stupid him, it was already listed in one of the emails he sent to me. Also, be careful when opening attachments in an email from someone you don’t know or never met. This is the email I got from him today.

    Thank you for providing me with the required information to proceed with the execution of the WILL and last testament of my Late client Engr.Fernando Sergio Morales. It will interest you to know that we have crosschecked the information you sent and they actually match with what we have in our records. Being the beneficiary to this WILL, I wish to acquaint you with the procedure involved in the execution of the will . Since your information tally with what we have in our records, your information will be taken to the court immediately for confirmation after which the court will issue you the indemnity transfer of rights and privileges. This legal document will confer on you the beneficiary rights in relation to the investment as stated in my late client’s will.

    Once legal document has been issued, I will take it over to the probate office and apply for a letter of administration. The probate office will then contact the holding/security deposit bank to furnish them with balances on my late client’s account where applicable. This final balance is what we will put in the application. This application will then be placed on the notice board for 24 hours. This is to enable any member of the public who has a query against our claim to do so. Once this is done successfully, you will be issued a letter of administration for the holding/security deposit bank to release the funds to you.

    Attached to this email, a Copy of my late client death certificate alongside with my i.d for your perusal, Hope you will be able to recognize him through the photograph attached.I will be sending you copies of the will which will be used as the legal background to the claims we are applying for, because I believe it has some information which you are supposed to know before hand. Note that all these documents are for your own perusal ONLY as it is supposed to be served by the court bailiff to the holding bank, and therefore you are not supposed to have a copy of it until the Bank sends the hard copy to you after the funds rights on the investment has been transferred to you.

    I want to use this opportunity to remind you of the reason why my late client left these funds in your care. You are to use part of the money to carry out humanitarian services to assist the poor and needy in the society. You may wish to set up a charity foundation or organization in the name of my late client to help the less privileged in your country and I sincerely believe you will do just that. I am your lawyer in this regard and all fees has been paid by my late client and you do not have to pay me for the services, I have been paid to make sure the funds get to you dully.

    I will inform you as soon as the indemnity transfer of rights and privileges has been issued by the High Court.
    PS: Kindly acknowledge the receipt of this email.

    Have a nice day ahead.

    Sincerely yours,
    Antonio Maura

  119. Panda Rosa says:

    Just received the snail-mail version:
    A Mr. Hiroshi XXXXXX has died on vacation; leaving behind a fortune of ten zillion pounds; he was a citizen of Britain, the Japanese Consulate can’t locate any immediate relatives, as you also have the last name XXXXX we are contacting you in order to blah blah blah… You can fill in the rest.
    What make it interesting to me is that I wouldn’t be a blood relative of the deceased, I simply preferred to keep my ex’s name after divorce. The name itself is rare even in Japan and all but unknown in the US. More to the point, my ex’s family is not very extant, he and his brother are the last of the line; he would have known about any distant relatives overseas. Any “Hiroshi XXXXX” would be very distant at best.
    Furthermore I am not Japanese, so it’s amusing to think I could be passed off as next in line to a fortune. The true claimants, if such a thing were legit, would be, in order, my former mother-in-law, my ex and his brother, his sister and her three daughters, and the ex’s five children, three from me, two from the new Mrs. XXXXX. As much as I wouldn’t mind the money, even in the case of a real inheritance I’d probably be the last one to get anything.
    I’ll admit I’d love to know if he received a similar letter..

  120. Melody says:

    This is about an inherited fund:
    I am still thinking If my fiance and his lawyer is real or not. We’ve met online, he proposed marriage last month and made a lot of promises to me, a wedding, that he will relocate here, that we will buy a house and lot, cars, and invest. We’ve been communicating for more than 2 months now but honestly I haven’t seen him on camera but he saw me already and my family. He said that he need to fix the camera of his net book etc. I always call him on his cellphone everyday. Then suddenly he told me about his inherited fund in UK, that he wanted to transfer it to me to lessen the tax payment in UK, AT first I couldn’t believe what is he telling me and I already fell in love with him too. then he referred me to his lawyer, I submitted my i.d and some personal information to his lawyer, Then after a week the court released the grant of probate, he send a copy of some documents then he asked me to pay the processing fee for the bank so that the fund will be remitted to my account. And I have to pay it thru western union, Why all of a sudden my fiance couldn’t handle it? And he always said that I should take care of it. I thought his situation there is good, that he has a nice job, a house and a car. That for almost 3 months he never showed his face, And now I really don’t know the status, He said he will be in my country next month, I saw the ticket but I think its not yet confirmed. and I really don’t know if its true. When I told his lawyer that my cousin will visit his office, he said ok but he will just continue the process and transaction if my fiance will pay his balance for the lawyer’s fee and its because of the kind of approach that I gave him, I was only asking for the accurate information of the bank for some verifications and that my cousin will visit his office there. I was really depressed right now. That I have been waiting for him to come here, hoping that he is true and real, That all of my friends and relatives already knew that we are getting married. I hope there is still a chance…but i am really scared now about what is happening now. Why he could’t handle that processing fee for his own fund. Why should I, I am jobless. I wasn’t able to work for more than a month because of him. Because of the preparations for everything, for his relocation, for our wedding. I don’t know what to do anymore, One thing for sure, Even if I have money, I would’t pay for it. What will I do now?

  121. Chilipie says:

    Wow. I almost fell for this too! Beware of the name Bakar Bin Saud from Malaysia. He wrote me about a $9 million dollar inheritance, and split it 60/40 with him. Told me to be quiet, don’t mention any of this to anyone. I should’ve been alerted when some of the letters I was getting had so many misspelled words. I did all the paperwork, sent him all my personal information, but what finally raised that huge red flag for me was when I got that final letter just a few days ago from the Power of Attorney, stating that their professional fee would be $35,000.00 to be paid after the funds were released to me, but in order to proceed with the funds transfer, they wanted me to send them a $9,500.00 fee! I’m like, are you kidding me? That’s absurd! I told Bakar I’m on disability and on a fixed income, and he just said to “raise the money and send it”. Knowing I wasn’t ever going to be able to come up with that type of money, I knew something was up because I even asked couldn’t they just get the money from the $9 million? They could’ve taken it off the top. But nooooo, they wanted me to send it. And that’s when I decided to come online today and see if there had been other deals like mine out there, and lo and behold I find this website with the same stories. I’m just thankful that I never sent any money, and I am going to change my bank account immediately. I’m mad as hell though, because I had made plans to help out so many people with that money who really, really need financial help right now, and now I’m so disappointed that I won’t be able to help these people out. Hurts.

  122. Chilipie says:

    People, please beware. Since I received the email from Bakar Bin Saud of Malaysia, I have received 2 more from different people not from Malaysia. This is an epidemic.

  124. Anonymous says:

    YES iadon lang it is a scam, it is fake. Not only is it a scam, but it has the potential to send viruses to your computer. They take the information you send them and suck into to sending them money and will eventually take all your money. The whole time they continue to tell you they need money for this or that to complete the process and you never see any money from them. There are other scams that look like this also. I will post some other emails just like this one to be careful of.

  125. Anonymous says:

    This is an email I got, but never heard of these people and they never heard of me. Never sent the information requested or money. Look at the way they say my name “Dear Friend”. Any legal document would have your name and other personal information on it. There are many ways that should alert you to a fake email about money. Do you ever see this letter in your mailbox that was delivered from the post office? No. A letter this important would be sent certified, registered, Fedex or another way to show that you recieved the letter and with no response they have a time limit that they have to hold the money then it is put back in the governments pocket. Hope this helps you iadon lang
