Scam Money Transfers from Lawyers / Barristers
Example -
Swee Lopez
"With your last name, who put YOU in his WILL"

Have you received an email from "Swee Lopez", claiming that he is an attorney for a dead wealthy man ("Smith" in this case) who named YOU in his will?  It's a mystery who the dead guy is or why he named you, but you better reply pretty quickly or risk losing millions from the "will". Of course, even if this were true; you would be committing several felonies, including fraud.

If you are still salivating and eager to fill out the form, we can assume you 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).

Dear [Your first name] [Your last name],

I am Swee Lopez, an attorney at law. A deceased client of mine, by name Mr.Charles [Your last name], who here in after shall be referred to as my client, died as the result of a heart-related condition on the 11th November 2004.

I have contacted you to assist in distributing the money left behind by my client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank when this deposit valued at 4.5million dollars is lodged. This bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin, or the account will be confiscated.

My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my named client, since you have the same last name, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage. All legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next-of-kin will be provided. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see the transaction through.

This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from many breach of the law. If this business proposition offends your moral values, do accept my apology. I must use this opportunity to implore you to exercise the utmost indulgence to keep this matter extraordinary confidential, whatever your decision, while I await your prompt response. Please contact me at once to indicate your interest. I will like you to acknowledge the receipt of this e-mail as soon as possible via email this transaction will be treated private with absolute confidentiality and sincerity. I look forward to your quick reply. Please for security reasons reply me via my private Email


Best regards,
