Scam Money Transfers
from Lawyers / Bankers / Barristers
Example - John Schlagleman
"With a wealthy dead client named, Engr. John A. Jette"
Have you received an email from someone claiming
that he is an attorney or banker "managing an account" for a dead wealthy man (Engr. John A. Jette, in this case) who
died (usually along with his whole family) and leaving no heirs. This
means our dear buddy wants YOU to pretend to be the dead guy's only living
relative, so you can defraud the estate (although the scammer tells you it is
"risk free"). Of
course, even if there really were such a dead guy and a real account, you would be committing several felonies,
If you are still salivating and eager to fill out the form, we
can assume you are either of a criminal nature or get scammed frequently, as this is simply another fraud to
separate you from your money (that is, whatever money you have left after being
scammed before). See the example email below!
Since the original name used in the scam and the website
referenced by the scammer referred to a real and legitimate law firm, we changed
the name to "John Schlagleman" to avoid anyone confusing the scam with the
legitimate law firm.
