Inheritance Scam

From Mr. Shona Mackenzie – [fraud email example]


This is a fake email scam! Do not send documents or money! Don’t respond to emails like this. Don’t deposit any checks they send you.

I have been directed by the director of Foreign Operation/ wire transfer to write you in respect to your mail and your partner’s mail which we received in our Bank. Actually,we have earlier been informed about you by the young lady Miss. Aminata Weah.
(the next of kin) that she wishes you to be her trustee/represent for the claim of her late father’s deposit with this bank.
Late (Dr Mark G Weah) is our late customer with sum substantial amount of money he deposit with us,$3.8 M Dollars.(Three Million Eight Hundred Thousand Dollars).Hence you have been really appointed as a trustee to represent the next of Kin.How ever before our bank will transact any business concerning the transfer of the fund to your bank,we will like you to send the followings immediately to our bank.
1.A power of attorney permitting you to claim and transfer the funds to your bank account on her behalf.Note:This Power of attorney must been dosed by a Senegalese resident lawyer.(Since the young lady is presently in Senegal)
2, Sworn Affidavit of oath In your name: this must equally be endorsed by a Senegalese residence lawyer too.
3.The death certificate of (Her deceased father) confirming his death.
4.A Will Written Certificate.
Note:The above are compulsory,and are needed to protect our interest,yours and the next of kin after the transfer has been made.
Therefore You have to hurry up to present these documents to our bank to enable us wire the fund (US$3,800,000.00 )into your account.
These shall also ensure that a smooth,quick and successful transfer of the fund is made.
(We promise to give our customers the best of our services.)
Yours Faithfully,
Mr. Shona Mackenzie.
