I was almost scammed by David Bulteel. He represented that I was an heir of Nobert Belhumeur and told me he died intestate in the UK. He stated the amount of the estate was $19,360,000. He stated he would do all the legal paperwork and filing to get the estate in my name and place it in an offshore bank account. He was to get 50% of the estate for his effort. I did much checking to validate that he was as he represented. His elaborate internet presence convinced me he was on the level. I have attached all the correspondence and the legal agreements he presented to me through his attorney that I found was fake to. Also included is the fake passport and work ID. I’m an intelligent man and he almost got me in to his web of deceit.
We were contacted by phone, first by an American person then by a German person, that an uncle in Germany left an inheritance we should receive. They then sent official looking documents and authorizations to be signed and returned to them and warned of costs we may incur. They asked questions about other relatives. They want copies of our passports, family documents, marriage certificate, birth certificate, and other identifications.
He claim to have inherited millions from his parents in stocks from a company in Europe and they would deposit the money from the sealing the stocks but he claim to be military and couldn't do it he would give me a power of attorney to act in his name and open an account with 50000.00 due to the fact of the big amount that was to be deposit.
