I received an email that he was the attorney representing a person I knew nothing about. Same last name (which is my married name) but never heard of that person in my husbands family. He could not give me details but he found my information in his "quest". He asked I confirm my information so that he can divulge what this was about. These people are sick!!!! They have no idea of how the people they are scamming are struggling day in and day out just to survive. Working 2 or 3 jobs to support their families. They are lazy pieces of garbage--GO OUT AND GET A REAL JOB and stop robbing from other people. They should all go to jail!!!!!!!!!!!

Inheritance Scam

Texted me with "There is something you need to know"
Follow up was this email:
I am writing to you from the United States of America to seek your help in something that will be beneficial to both of us. I am a senior banker and I served as the last branch manager of my bank. Due to operational issues, our bank has closed its banking services and we have long advised our customers to withdraw their deposits to avoid the forfeiture of the deposit to the Treasury Department. There is a sum of three million, one hundred and forty four thousand United States dollars (USD3,144,000.00) that has not been withdrawn our customer (Ms. Marie Fe Castro) who is now dead. According to our bank records, Ms. Marie Fe Castro was from the Philippines and she did not put any beneficiary at the time she made the deposit. All I want you to do is to cooperate with me so you can apply as the beneficiary of the deposit and claim the money from our bank.
Getting the money from our bank is easy as I am in a position to influence things in our favor since the verification and approval of the claim will be done by me when you apply for it. This claim will be done legally without going contrary to the financial laws of your country or that of my own country. You will not be required to come to our bank in person due to the movement restrictions imposed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. You will file for the claim and complete it while in the comfort of your home, all you need to provide is a bank account where the money will be transferred to you if you wish to be paid through a bank account transfer.
Where you do not have a bank account or do not wish to have the money transferred to your bank account, I will see to it that our bank issues a demand draft (a type of check that cannot be bounced) as a way of paying you the claim amount. Once you have received the money from our bank, I will provide you with a bank account where my own share of the money will be lodged for me. We will share into two equal parts (50:50) between the two of us. I will give you more details of myself, the late depositor, our bank and also tell you the next thing to do to ensure the success of the claim. Do inform me in clear terms if you are interested in making the claim with me or not. Your quick response will be highly appreciated. Thank you.
Yours sincerely,
David Johnson.

MR. ANGEL L. CENTENO ESQ Tried to scam me and I knew better

Below is an account in which he was trying to scam me. I know this to be a scam due to the name he was trying to say I was related to being my married name. My name has been changed for protection.
Hello K C ,
Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to respond to my email.
I understand the fact that you may or may not be a relative of my late client Mr. Edward Timothy Criswell but please read carefully as I explain in detail why I contacted you.
I am Mr. Angel Luis Centeno Esq. I worked with Advocatenkantoor De Coninck for 20 years but now retired. I am an attorney to Mr. Edward Timothy Criswell My late client died in a car crash with his immediate family and left behind a deposit of Seven Million Eight Hundred Thousand Euro with a bank here in Belgium.
I have not contacted you on the premise that I believe you to be a relative of my deceased client; my contacting you was due to personal discretionary policy so there are no bases why I should have rather contacted all other persons with the same last name. Although there are lots of people with the same last name as yourself but I found and chose you from professional and personal endeavours which required me to contact both the U.S. Embassy here in Belgium and Bureau of Data and Statistics which helped with a comprehensive list of individuals bearing the same last name. From the list I was able to conduct a genealogical analysis wherein the result on your name showed up as inconclusive and thus was a yardstick for my approaching you. However, this by no means implies you’re definitely related to my deceased client but rather a deal to successfully argue your relationship status with my deceased client.
My message to you is a final option for me because of the circumstances surrounding this claim right now. Mr. Edward Timothy Criswell was an oil merchant and he had oil dealings around Europe and Africa. He died at 54 alongside his wife, Olivia, 46, and their two daughters, Katharine, 19 and Yolanda 15. He lived the last of his years here in Belgium but travelled often to the United States. I served as his private finance attorney for the last Eight years preceding his death. Mr. Edward migrated to Belgium a long time ago.
After the death of my late client, I was informed by the finance company to get any member of his extended family to put up a claim for his deposited funds with them due to his demise with his entire immediate family. However, it might interest you to know that, after a thorough investigation on the finance company, I found out that some members of the company are currently planning to divert this funds in their selfish interest and only want to use the excuse that since I am unable to get someone to make the claim, the money should be made serviceable and that means reverting the funds to the Government while the company retains a percentage of it.
On this note I decided to search for a credible person and finding that you bear a similar last name, I was urged to contact you, that I may, with your consent, present you to the organization (company) as my late client's surviving family member so as to enable you put up a claim in that capacity as a next of kin of my client. I had to conduct a genealogical analysis wherein the result on your name showed up as inconclusive and this was the yardstick used by me to approach you. However, this by no means implies you’re certainly related to my deceased client but rather a deal to successfully argue your relationship status with my deceased client.
I have at my possession some very important legal documents that might be requested by the bank and can only be provided by my office. There is a legal reason for the confidentiality of this transaction because of its nature. I could be held for being in breach of a standard code of conduct of lawyer/client fiduciary relationship. I will appreciate it if you would uphold the trust I repose in you to have contacted you ab-initio. Be rest assured that this is going to be done in line with the law as I have the documents to show to you as proof but I may not release them for your perusal for now due to security reasons until I have obtained your confidence. I will provide you with any information you need as we proceed.
I will not fail to bring to your notice that this proposal is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any fears as the required arrangements have been made for the completion of this transaction. Like I said, I require only a solemn confidentiality on this.
It is my thinking that the mode of sharing would be 40% for me 60% for you at the end of a successful deal however this is open to deliberations.
If the details of my mail is well understood, do let me know if you are willing to go ahead so I can provide you the contact of this finance company where this fund is lodged and advise you on how to proceed.
