None provided
Country of Scam:
Canada (CA)
Got my contact info. From a old file to one of his deceased clients that had the same last name as me....says He was a us citizen who lived in canal for over 2 decades and died a few years back. Said there was no WILL on this account, leaving the account with an open beneficiary then goes on to say he couldn't find any immediate relatives an tracked his last name and couldn't find any relatives. Asking for my assistance in repatriation to the funds using my info. Because Alex William believes I'm an extended relative of this person that passed because I have the same last name....asking me for my name to use as the beneficiary saying the funds would be released to me legally as his beneficiary...saying there's no risk involved and is going to use notary for procuring a letter of probate and relevant documents for approval....asking for my name, address, occupation, phone/ fax, email address and the reference number on this letter....says to contact him only through email of fax. Says when I he hears from me he'd bring me nto the detailed picture and description of the claim and a copy of his id to assure the legality of this settlement and to keep this to the utmost privacy.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
