TD Canada Trust Letterhead sent to me, in a Walmart envelope, no return address or phone number, saying I'm the sole inheritor of 9.2 mil, just because my last name matches. But they misspelled it!

I was contacted several time by Dr. Douglas Wells, diplomat, stating I had an inheritance and he deposited it into the Bank of Africa and had me set up an acct for a wire transfer directly into my bank acct. here. To date this still has not a cured. They keep making excuses and asking for more money. They have me send everything to Somadila Chinedu Abel. This last time they demanded 380.00 for IMF code to make the transfer. I'm completely broke and living on the street. They have taken me for everything. Dr. Wells phone number is +22968443617, The transfer into the acct was to have ben made 2 weeks ago. Now this excuse. I need my money.

Suggested she could let me inherit a fortune

  • Monetary Loss: $0
On instant messenger was contacted because of prayer which I firmly believe in though I am definitely not Catholic. Sister Marie has cancer is dying in a day or so and feels her Bank of London account of 1,500,000.00 should be inherited by me to be half shared with God's people which is actually something I probably would do and keep half.

Waiting for the other shoe to fininsh dropping. The money discussion was immediate. And she needed a little to keep on the net I think. I think her name is Marie Oliveria or something. Beautiful old ladie's pic showing. What do you think.? Haven't ridden any turnip trucks lately. But if God is answering prayer......well. I am just saying. Not biting.

9.8 million dollar inheritance via sms?

  • Monetary Loss: $1.01
Someone sent an sms message to my phone claiming to be from a Spanish or Filipino Bank in Hong Kong, telling me that I deserve a 9.8 million inheritance, because of their intuition in sending a text message to me in particular. I have not and will not reply as I am aware of this kind of scam, and would like everyone else to know about it as well. No money has changed hands, but your silly report makes me insist that at least more than 1$ be taken. I'm sure that nobody needs to be taken advantage of in order to investigate this? That would definitely defeat your entire purpose. Also, your site should allow .png files to be uploaded as it is the standard for android screenshots, which I have of this sms message, but cannot upload to your site.

and they were going to ship it to me and give the codes to the trunks, but after it arrived I was to pay 800.00 dollars, I hung up the phone, so they kept calling me back, and that, we would work out a deal on the shipping, and the next day he made like the containers have been shipped and I would have to pay 1500.00 dollars once they arrived, so mr Bolton said that the containers were being held by customs at the airport, and if I didn't send him 1200.00 dollars that they were going to open the boxes and confiscate the money in the boxes and throw everybody in jail for money laundry, I told him I didn't have the money, so he said send what you can, then it was one crisis after the other, the police after leaving the airport send more money for insurance or they are going to open the boxes, this mr Bolton or what ever his name is and his friend he calls the diploymat, have been harassing me for sometime now over send them more money, they are very aggressive and very demanding...
