Inheritance Scam Money Transfers from fake Lawyers / Barristers
Example -
RICHARD MORGAN (ESQ.) , 1ST CITY ROYAL CHAMBERS
With a wealthy dead client, "Belmar Park, who made you a beneficiary to his WILL"

Have you received an email from "RICHARD MORGAN (ESQ.) , 1ST CITY ROYAL CHAMBERS", claiming that he is an attorney for a dead wealthy man (Belmar Park, 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). Keep in mind that the names used are often simply incented by the scammers, and are equally often the names of legitimate businesses and people who have no knowledge of nor connection to the scam described here. For this reason, we put the name "RICHARD MORGAN (ESQ.) , 1ST CITY ROYAL CHAMBERS" in quotation marks.

Hello

RE: NOTIFICATION OF BEQUEST

On behalf of the Trustees and Executor of the Estate of Late Belmar Park, I once again try to notify you as my earlier letter to you returned undelivered. I hereby attempt to reach you again by this same email address on the WILL.

I wish to notify you that Late Belmar Park made you a beneficiary to his WILL. He left the sum of Four million five hundred and Twenty thousand United States Dollars (USD 4,520.000.00) 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 possibly you were simply recommended to him by one of his numerous friends abroad who wished you good.

Late Belmar Park, until his death was a member of the Institute for Philanthropy as well other Recognized Organizations and associations worldwide. He had a very good heart and was a true philanthropist. His great philanthropy earned him numerous awards during his life time. Late Belmar Park died as a result of a Bellview Airlines Flight 210 which crash landed almost immediately after take off on Saturday 22nd October, 2005, full details on http://www.cnn.com/2005/WORLD/africa/10/23/nigeria.plane/ and his WILL is now ready for execution. According to him this money is to support humanitarian activities and to help the poor and the needy in your society.

Please if I succeed in reaching you this time around as I am hoping, kindly endeavor to get back to me ASAP to enable me conclude my job. I hope to hear from you in no distant time either by mail or through my Direct Telephone Number +234-706-052-4628
