Scam Money Transfer
Allen Ken, Barrister to
Mr. Morris Thompson,
an American who unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of
Alaska Airlines Flight 261
Pity poor Mr. Morris Thompson. Not only did he die in a
plane crash in Alaska, but he's got two "barristers" attempting to steal his
estate! The "Allen Ken" scam is another that appears to be perpetrated
by the same scammer, since he uses a nearly identical letter to the
"Evans Tim" email, and both
emails uses names in which the first and last names appear to be reversed -
that's a common mistake of foreigners who are no familiar with names in
English-speaking countries. Here it is, for your
entertainment and education, with key passages that are clues to the scam
highlighted, such as poor
grammar, poor punctuation, spelling errors, the money comes from a dead person
(assassinated by rebels, no less!), blah, blah, blah. "Allen Ken" claims
to be a lawyer. In most countries, a person with advanced education would
be able to spell simple works correctly.
As with the Evans Tim email and many other scams, the airline crash and name of the dead passenger may
be real, but so what? Anyone can look up an news story on the internet,
then copy some of the details into an email.
And, as usual, even if this were all true and he really was a
lawyer representing the estate of a dead millionaire... then he's proposing that
you assist in fraud and money laundering. Those are federal crimes.
