  • Monetary Loss: $0
Envelope received from Canada, Dundee Trust return company with no address. The letter inside had Canada Trust logo in black and white. Peter Andrew Timo told me that a depositor in his bank, Joe with surname matching letter recipient, died 10 years ago and no one has claimed the 9.2 million inheritance. He says he will work from the inside to "make sure all information and evidences are provided to you to back up your claim". Yes..relative did exist, but details didn't match. No phone number provided.

  • Monetary Loss: $150.00
I have been speaking to MrMorris for a few months. Originally about my inheritance from the Bank of England. Stated they wanted me to put up 450,000 dollars to transfer funds. I said no way..He then stated that he had a business proposal for me to make some extra money. He asked me to open a business account. I did open an account with Wells Fargo Bank. he then stated he had investors that would help us get the inheritance. He proposed to me if I could transfer funds to China.. I stated I could do that..Yesterday I received 120,000 thousand dollars. I called Wells Fargo for a fraud complaint.They instructed me to go to the nearest Wells Fargo Bank..They instrucked me about how these funds could have been sent fraudulently. I was instruckted to hold the unds for 10 days until officially cleared.. If I transferred the funds out I could have been liable for that amount of money.. I also called FBI office in Miami to report this; as I do not want to transfer money to an undesirable organization. He has called meover 20 times today..I sent email to him stating I will transfer funds in 10days. He stated for me to go into bank and reverse the wires...

Faith Smith using inheritance and paying all the fees for documents to get it in Nigeria. There is no inheritance. Jaymme Hanrahhan Paying for a divorce that HAS NEVER ended. Both are being protected by an FBI agent named Penny Debity and the US Embassy in Nigeria. I have paid multiple fees that have never ended in the case of Faith Smith and the Nigerian government. And they say the money is in Loylds Bank in London England but will not be allowed to confirm this information. Have been threatened with money laundering criminal charges if I filed a complaint.

  • Monetary Loss: $150.00
I got an email saying they found my name on some papers of inheritance. I got a lady saying that she was the first lady and showed a pic of kid, and I needed to send 150.00 MoneyGram, so I could get the inheritance. I got threatened by an FBI man saying I sent it wrong and he wanted the money. This makes me mad. Don't use the first ladies name like that...

They call to say you have won a million dollars. She asked my age and blood type and said this is a scam. I said I know that. Sorry and hung up then immediately called back. I am terminally ill and do not feel like being bothered by phone calls.
