I live in Canada and I had the same type of letter post marked from Portugal, that was very professionally written on cheap paper, from a lawyer named Felipe Rodriguez Cortez saying my relative died in a tsunami in 2004 in Spain. He has a metal trunk that has 12.5 million dollars that he his willing to split 50/50 with me. I guess its my lucky day ;-). What will these guys think of next?

I received the same letter in the mail today - in Western Australia. The scammers are so crafty ... apparently someone by the same surname as myself perished in the 2004 Tsunami in South East Asia! Lol!! Keep it regional and someone might believe you, I guess?!

I have half a mind to email this sucker and tell him to make a sexual departure, only ... this came to my home address. mailed in Spain.

The same happened to me. I also receved the letter at my homeaddress in the netherlands.

I received a letter in Canada from Acevedo Iglesias who was representing himself as a personal attorney of a deceased client with the same last name as mine. He was asking me to consent to him presenting me as the next of kin / beneficiary of their deceased client so that the 6,950,000 euro fund could be released from the bank. He then wanted to give 20% to charity and share the remining 80% with me. It's party time! No?

Sounds like all the rest.

He said some guy with the same surname as mine had worked with him in the Mining and Smelting Company in Spain for thirteen years. He died in a car accident with his wife and kids in 2004.
He says that this guy had 11.5 million US dollars to the next of kin, which he meant could be me. Han he writes the share ratio to be 50% 50%.

I kind of believed it at first, but then I saw the yahoo address and they don't have any website. So.. Yeah.

I am living in Sweden and I got a letter from Nicolas Cris, an alleged attorney with Guirao Abogados in Madrid, Spain. He promises me a share of 6.5M $ because a recently (2004) in a car crash deceased business magnate has a surname that we both share.
Funniest thing is, the signature is definitely not his mentioned name...

I am also from Australia. This one is from 'Barrister Giacinto Canzona' claiming to be from the Legal firm White & Baos. It was posted in Malaga. Usual stuff about a dead relative who died in a car crash along with his wife and kids. He did thoughtfully leave 10.5 Million USD for me just for giving away 50% to my new best friend. I got suspicious that he uses a gmail account and a mobile phone on an official looking legal firm letter head .

I emailed the email address on the real White & Baos website suggesting they could get the police to trace the fixed fax number or the mobile number and go around, arrest him, punish him and then deport the bastard back to Nigeria.

Thanks to a Spanish layer called Guirao Abogados who is a custodian to my unfortunate family member who recently died in a car crash. She left me US 6.5M and he's willing to share - 40% to me and the rest goes to him.
Guirao, why not take all since you are mandated to claim anything on behalf of anyone. That's what you wrote.
Maybe then and only then, you can afford a better design of your letter heading, open a trustworthy domain and last but not least you can afford replacing your seemingly, almost empty inkjet-cartridge.

I received a letter today dated and post marked September 14 from the "law firm" LGG Abogados y Acesores telling me someone who shared my surname had died in 2004 in the Indonesian Tsunami and left US$10.8-million in One Trunk Box/Diplomatic Personal Treasure. This was supposedly left with a "Safe Security Company" in Spain although the contents were undisclosed to the company.

The "Barrister's" name was Jorge Canta. They are supposedly located in Madrid at Frayjuan Gil 4, 28002 Madrid but gave a postal address of Sur. 13-301 46021 Valencia Spain. I mention this because the envelope was post marked Lisbon, Portugal with the same date as the letter.

Snr. Canta assures that even though I am not likely actually related to his client, by allowing him to use my name he will, "(through the rule of law)" be able to claim the money.

Where do these people come from? Are people stupid enough to think they're legit?

Hey, we must be related then...........I'm in Canada.
Garvyn was also my relative (?) and supposedly left $10.8 million with a Safe security company in Spain.
His "lawyer" Jesus Mardomingo thinks he's entitled to half of this claim.

Unfortunately, it appears that someone has gone to a huge amount of trouble to set up some "sort of" real looking websites for some of the scam operations. My (snail-mail) letter has a fairly real looking, but ultimately fake website to support it. Be veru careful out there.

Not sure how my 4 month old postal address got into this system, but annoyed about it.

I just got one this week. Sept 20 2012.

I think the source where they are getting this info needs to be prosecuted. They are targeting retired individuals.

Also a tip for those receiving blocked number calls from scammers. If you forward your number through to some VoIP mailboxes it will capture the blocked number. I subscribe to a VoIP service in addition to my cellphone and home number. It's a cheaply cheaply one that happens to not abide by call block standards. I noticed it one day when checking voice messages that the source number was not blocked. Lol. Love it.


Just received a letter claiming I am the sole beneficiary for $10.8M inheritance deposited in diplomatic box. I am worried where these scammers get their info???

This is their info (or not):
Edific Crane & Asociados Abogados, Calle San Jose Zurbano 52, 28100 Madrid
Tele: 0034-634-162-839

The address is a rather nice building that could well have been an attorney's residence.

The 'Diplomatic Personal Treasure' amount waiting to be had: $8,550 000.00

'...who died along with his nuclear family during the Tsunami catastrophe, which occurred in December 2004.'

My mother in law received a letter from a "Barrister" Garcia Sanchez apparently working for G.S Abogados. As other people have already said, this "Personal Attorney" claimed to give 10% of the inheritance to charity, and the remaining 90% split between the benefactor and himself... which is just dodgy because where and how much of the inheritance money goes is completely up to the person who died, not just decided by the lawyer. Also, the fee lawyers get is a fixed sum, am I correct?

I also noticed the english was... a little bad. They spelled "through" as "thru" which is text speak. Absolute bogus.

I just received this letter today, in Canada. From Sr. Samuel Edward principal attorney with cortez agogado. yet in the header it is spelled cortes abogado... you would think a principal attorney could get the spelling of his firm correct. And again a "relative" died in the madrid train bombing of 2004 (I am %100 sure no relatives in Madrid). The letter states to release the fund to him (USD 7.5 million) he will share the ration 50/50.... sure thing fuckhead, especially when your private email address is with yahoo.com and phone number is clearly a cell.

Do your research and do not contact this idiot, it is SPAM.

Hi

I received a similar letter. $7.5m to be split 50/50. I decided to have some fun. Emailed him from an anonymous address to get him going. He replied quickly. "Steps and Way Forward" he titled his reply. I responded that he could only get 10%. Again he wrote back, "50/50". I wrote him to say that I had a contact in Madrid that he could make arrangements with. I copied a phone number to him. The number was for Luna Madrid Police department. I didn't wait for his reply. I wrote again that I forwarded all of his contact information to my contact "Emilio" and that he was waiting for his call. Emilio is a real name of a Police General. I emailed a further message to tell him that Emilio wrote to me in Spanish that his team is conducting a surveillance of a suspects' address and that they expect to make an arrest soon. I wrote one last time to tell him that I've sent all his info to Policia Madrid and that Yahoo.com and GMX.com would be getting the same info.

No reply from Don Edward............. :)

My mother at 77 years of age received a bogus letter, stamped in Valencia Spain, from Nicolas Cris who claims to be an attorney at Guirao Abogados.
It´s the same story as you guys have received...a person/family dead in a car accident leaving 6,5 USD. For the claim my mother was asked to provide an account number.

I scanned the letter and sent it to my local policeoffice, by email, with information how to contact me if they wanted to go further with an investigation with this attempt of fraud.

I wonder how much these organisations spend in stamps, paperwork and time in correlation with how much they earn, if it´s a rewarding business. I fear that must be a rewarding business since they are putting so much effort in it.

Keep on the good work guys, by telling us your experience in these kind of scams!!

We're in Canada and we received a similar scam letter today.....Tsunami 2004 victim with same name....proposed split of bank account funds etc (10% going to charity of course). Letter posted from Spain from (supposedly):
Enruque Velasco Associados
C/Villanueva, 24-3e dcha 28001 Madrid
tel: +34 634 034 745
fax: +34 935 504 015
with a gmx email address
Signed Barrister Enrique Velasco

So obviously a scam! Someone posted a comment much earlier about the scammers needing to invest in a new printer cartridge.....well our letter, with blurry off-colour headings, was evidence of that fact. Also whenever the words bank and money were used in the text they were in bold letters. Somehow that was supposed to convince us of the veracity of the letter?
What is scary is that this scam must sometimes bear fruit as it seems to have been going on for years, based on the history of this thread, and the cost of the mailings, and setting up fake websites and phone/fax numbers etc.
The real sources of their income, the older, less wary, will not be reading any of the postings here. We know that these kind of predators are out there but please make sure that your friends and relatives, who may not be so aware, do not become victims.

Some relative and his family died in a car crash and bla bla bla.

i got one the other day too in Sweden. i responded, figured i had nothing to lose. I just dont understand what the point of it all is. he hasnt asked for money, we have exchanged about 4-5 emails. Emailed me a next of kin document that all i had to do was sign,it was addressed to a man at Bancaja Bankia, who i googled and does work there. he also emailed me a paper stating he will be my lawyer. As far as information on that paperwork the only thing it asks for is your address(which he already has) and passport/drivers license number, which does nothing for him.

his website is legit and professional, email was through his website. I just dont understand what the scam is i guess. he isnt asking for money, no personal information besides passport number which like i said he cant do anything without actually having the passport.

anybody actually know what the point of all this is? what their goal is?

just got another email from this guy. i think i am farther in the process than the other people on here, i want to see how far i can get until the scam part kicks in. he still has not asked for money from me.

"Good evening!!! The Affidavit form was okay and the purpose was claims not oaths. I write to update that I have submitted the Affidavit Form and the letter to bank. The Power of Attorney will be issued to me by Monday. I have also attached herein a scanned copy of DEATH CERTIFICATE of my late client, his DEPOSIT CERTIFICATE and AGREEMENT DEED. This is to confirm my alibi and for your record keeping. After all ,we will present all our documents to the court upon Court hearing, Mr. Elliot Bank account has already been suspended in other words frozen, and it is only when the court rules in your favour and we obtain (LOA) LETTER OF ADMINISTRATION, LETTER OF APPROVAL , SWORN AFFIDAVIT OF CLAIM, CERTIFICATE OF JUDGEMENT / POWER OF ATTORNEY empowering you to receive the funds then only can the bank release the funds to your account noting that at that time the court must have ruled in our favour and issue a Court Order authorizing the bank to release the proceeds of my late Client's frozen account to your account.

Once the bank completes their verifications, they will open up correspondence with you and initiate the process of the transfer. You will understand it more better as we progress. Send me your telephone number to reach you. Good night."

he attached a death certificate and deposit reciept also....

I live in Switzerland and received a similar letter today from the same scammer. Read through and note the unprofessional propositions and the chatty tone of the letter. Would a lawyer use this type of language? Look for mistakes in the English and mistakes in spelling, grammar and typing. Would a "barrister" suggest using a "judicial loophole" to access the vault? "...the transaction is 100% risk free...." .."we shall divide the content into two." This sounds like a real criminal proposition to me. It is so mind-bogglingly unprofessional and ridiculous that it is obviously a scam.

Here is the letter in full, faithfully copying the mistakes, so judge for yourselves:

"My names are Barrister Raul Martinez Sanchez and I work with MANZANO-ABOGADOS, Granada, Spain. Actually, I got your contact information through the European Public Records while searching for a last name similar to my late client´s a business magnate by name Mr Fred C******* who lived in Spain for over a decade before death. He died along with his nuclear family in 29th of December 2004.
Prior to my explaining further, I must first make an apology for this unsolicited mail to you. I am conscious that this is certainly not a predictable way of approach to foster a relationship of trust I had no choice due to the circumstances and urgency surrounding this claim. Before the catastrophe that claimed his death,he deposited One Trunk Box/Diplomatic Personal Treasure, containing the sum of US$5,000,000 (FIVE MILLION U.S. DOLLARS) with a Safe Security Company here in Spain and a 40Kilogram of 24Karat pure Gold Bars with another Deposit Company outside Spain. Due to security and personal reasons he did not disclose the exact content of deposited Trunk Box to the SAFE HOUSE. As the attorney to late Mr Fred C******* the security company has mandated me to present a member of his family (heir/inheritor) to make Claims or the vault will be confiscated and taken to the Bureau of Diplomatic Security as unclaimed.
After exhaustive efforts of search for a direct family member to my late client which came to no avail, I was given an ultimatum to look for some relative to come for the claim or have the Vault liquidated and made unserviceable in accordance with existing laws. Against this backdrop, I am soliciting for you to stand as the next of kin. I know you may not be anyway related to my late client but having a common lastname with him and considering the modality I have in place, I could guarantee that if you follow my instructions (The rule of laws) ,capitalising of some judicial loop holes the vault would be release to us. Mind you that this transaction is 100% risk free; there is no atom of risk connected to this business as I have worked out all modalities to complete the operation effectively.I shall present you for the claim of the cash in the deposited Trunk Box first before introducing you for the claim of the Gold Bars depositied outside Spain. Once the consignment (vault) is released to you, we shall divide the content into two.
Kindly reply to this mail via my private email address and phone number below for further clarification. Please be kind to get back to me if you are not willing to collaborate with me so that I can further my search for another partner.
Kind regards,
Barrister: Raul Martinez Sanchez

Hi
I'm in New Zealand. Got my letter today - much the same as everyone else's - Barrister Mario Sanchez in Madrid, 12.7 million Euro, 10% to charity and we share the difference - printed on cheap paper but full postage paid.

One big difference to all the others however - he's saying it was ME who was killed in Madrid in 2004. Probably explains why I haven't been feeling too well lately. Also highly annoyed none of my friends or relatives were at my funeral. You'd think at least one could afford the airfare NZ to Spain.

Checked the names of those killed in the real bombing - I'm not there either - no Kiwis there at all. Perhaps I'll just have to wait until I die again to get the recognition I must deserve.

Received a hoax letter from a so-called attorney "David Pintos" from Madrid Spain, claiming the usual - a next of kin needed to be found in order to have access to 8.4 million... received our info from Canadian Public Records... etc...

Wondering if there is a way to report this as they leave so much contact information (which I understand may be false). It would be nice to let police or investigators know so that they can investigate and spread the word - especially to prevent others and those more vulnerable and honest (like the elderly) from being victim of these scams...

Anyone ever report this?

Attn: ____ Rosen,

Before I proceed, I must first apologize for this unsolicited mail to you. I am aware that this is certainly not a conventional way of approach to establish a relationship of trust, but you will realize the need for my action. My name is Barrister Louis P. Petrich of Santiago Law Chambers. Actually, I got your contact information through your consulate while searching for a last name similar to my late client Eng. Palmer Rosen an expatriate engineer who worked with the Construction & Civil Engineering Company (Mota-Engil) in Portugal for thirteen years. He died along with his family during a car Accident, which occurred on Sunday 21st November 2004.

Before his death, he deposited $ 8,650, 000.00 (Eight Million, Six Hundred & Fifty Thousand US Dollar Only) with one of the bank here in Portugal & the Bank has issued me a notice to present the next of kin or any of the relatives, or the account will be declared unserviceable and the fund diverted to the Bank treasury. So far all my efforts to get a hold of someone related to my client have proved abortive. The bank has mandated me to present any family heir/inheritor for claim before the fund gets confiscated or reverts to the Government Recovery Fund, as unclaimed money. So I decided to search for any of my late client's relative which has been very difficult for me, as he did not declare any other person, address, partner or relatives in the official paper works of his deposit.

Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Eng. Palmer Rosen since you both share the same last name so that the fund will be transfer to you. With my position as his lawyer, I will now place your name ____ Rosen as the next of kin/distance relative to my late client. I will prepare every relevant document that will assist your claims, and facilitate the release of the fund.

Note that this transaction is 100% risk free. There is no atom of risk in connection to this business as I have worked out all modalities to complete the transaction successfully. Once the fund is transferred into your account, we shall share in the ratio of 50% for me, 50% for you as your benefit. Reply with your phone number via my fax/email address stated above or you can call me for further clarification. Please be kind to get back to me if you are not interested so that I can further my search for another partner.

The same shit has happened to me too!! Please take care of those bulshit scamers!!! Look here under what they wrote to me!!!

I found you during my personal search for someone with the same surname with my late client Engr. Leonard Ambaye At this point, it becomes imperative to let you know that my integrity and carrier as a lawyer are all at stake here, so please be informed that this transaction is going to be carried out under a legitimate arrangement that will not breach the laws of our countries. Hence, it is risk free.

The bank had contacted me on many occasions over these years to present the Next of kin to my late client deposit Engr Leonard Ambaye Upon these requests, I made several efforts to reach someone related to him but without success. The idea of presenting someone with the same surname came last month when the bank gave me the final notice to present the next of kin or the bank will declare the fund unserviceable, and returned to the state treasury.

Having received your email, I hereby forward my plan for its smooth conclusion in utmost fourteen working days. The money in question (US$ 5,400,000.00) is as a result of an abandoned deposit by my late client, Engr. Leonard Ambaye It is absolutely necessary for me to make it take the resemblance of an actual next of Kin; this is where I need your assistance, as my duty is to provide the necessary legal documents to back up our claim.

You see, Next of Kinship is not limited to relations of the deceased, nor is it confined to the circuit of parental relationship, rather it is by choice of the benefactor as regards to whom he wishes to WILL it to

(Beneficiary) either formally by writes up or informally by secret information disclosure to beneficiary, him/her, business partner, relation, kinsmen, or friends or well wishers.

My perfected modalities have been expanded, to include the transfer of the fund to your account by Swift Telegraphic Transfer or any alternative means desired as soon as the release of the Fund is approved on your name. I must I must also inform you that my biggest success is in our ability to enjoy the proceeds of this transaction with absolute peace of mind.

I am sure that the money will be transferred but I must be sure that after the transfer, I will have peace of mind; this is why Confidentiality and Honesty are absolutely important. I have to tender an application to the bank presenting you as the next of kin to my late client Engr. Leonard Ambaye then, you will be contacted by the bank within the maximum of 48 hours from the time the application is tendered to them as indicated by the bank..


Do send a copy of your identification or any legal document that identifies you, like your National Identity Card or Driving License, Your Telephone number, Fax number, Occupation, Date of birth and your Marital Status.It will be my duty to provide all the necessary legal documents on your name to enhance the release of the fund.



Kindest Regards

He apparently left 5.5 million and would I claim half of it. How dare they profit from another persons unfortunate demise.

Funny thing is, it's actually sent to my mother's address and I lived there as a child, but not anymore. But the letter also uses my married name, which I never used when I lived at home. Really wonder how they managed that combination.

Looks like they are doing a big bombardment of Norway at the moment. With all the posts on this site, imagine how many letters there must be! Only a small fraction of recipients would post here.

From Canada Received letter from scammer who posed as lawyer willing to split funds belonging to someone with same last name. Letterhead reads RAFAEL BERDAGUER ABOGADOS, ATTORNEY: RAFAEL BERDAGUER BARDADILLO.

Sent contact email to scammers private email address rafaelbb.esq@gmail.com to see what their response would be. They send private phone number 0034063102370511 requesting we contact them by phone. Didn't of course. Did send email to a RAFAEL BERDAGUER BARDADILLO's website asking if they were the lawyer handling this estate but never got email response. Maybe website is part of the scam....don't know.

I'm from Israel. These guys are really not very smart. The "law office" of Lius & Diaz wants to share an inheritance left by one Ms Hoshana Zelda .'Zelda'. was supposedly her family name. Zelda also happens to be my given name. So on that confused basis they're offering to have me declared the heiress to a $2 million bank account, before it's confiscated as 'unclaimed' by the Bureau of Bank Security. I wrote them that it would be best to let the beleaguered Spanish state confiscate the money; they surely need it.

I too did some digging, it happens that my long lost family member, being of considerable amount of money was sadly taken from us along with her family in a tragic car accident in 2004. It really must have been a sad and sorry year for drivers in Spain. She too had no other family members to claim her fortune. The odd thing is that these scammers aren't very clever, they're using a formed letter with personal info and money in bold face and an odd address. Really people, check with google maps if you want to scam people. So folks if you fall for this you deserve everything you get. Remember never trust an email or a letter unless you check it first. By the way, mine came by mail, and the name isnt even mine.. I married into it. So please be careful.

A friend of mine got this letter a few days ago and asked me to do a little research on the net.
Looks like we got a really good deal, 6.8 million euros - 20% goes to charities and 50% for my friend and 30% for the "Madrid Law" firm.
The letter was signed by Mr Pablo Perez Esq (There's a lawyer with that name in the USA (http://www.foreclosurelitigationlawyer.com/Firm%20Info/Lawyers/774399.aspx), perhaps he's interested in placing charges against them) and the address on the letter is Plaza de Alonso Martinez 6, 28004 (There's a legitimate law office at that address (http://www.mglegal.es/) but neither the telephone, nor the fax numbers are theirs - perhaps they are also interested in prosecuting)
The logo of the company looks quite cheap for a law firm, the telephone number is 0034608439835, the fax number is 0034917903833 and the email is madridlaw@lawyer.com (I hope spam bots will take it from here :) ).
Also, this letter seems to be an improvement since it mentions a real person as his late client and in fact a distant relative of my friend.
I'll check with him about the address and the stamp on the envelope and reply back.

I did find the company has a website, and the contact info and adress fit (but the number is a Spanish mobile +34 658 196 404), although the website gives a different e-mail adress for information (the letter ask to send information to mszabogados@consultant.com)

Its about an inheritance from a person called like his first ex-wife - supposedly to be 8.75 million EUR to be split 20% for a charity, and the rest evenly between the lawyer and my friend. I have told him it looks like a scam and to be careful, but promised to see if I could find out anything more about this.

Did you know that Police and news agencies are reporting an increased number of door-to-door cons across the nation. There may be a bigger number of operators attempting to rip people off, so be wary of any person knocking on the door and trying to sell you stuff.

A long narrative for your readers - please respond if you have more information. Aside from what I write below, I thank the people who added to this thread, who also helped us expose the scam.

My couple-hour attempt to expose a scam.

My father-in-law recently received a letter in the mail from a Spanish lawyer by the name of "Pablo Perez" of the Edificio Law Firm in Madrid, Spain. Mr. Perez informed my father-in-law that he had been searching, on behalf of a former, deceased client with the same last name, a living relative in order to transfer the inheritance left by the deceased. My wife followed up on the letter, writing an email to Mr. Perez. She received in response a letter proclaiming the honesty of his intent, his desire to close the portfolio and transfer the inheritance. He assured that everything would be done through legal channels.

Ok – obviously a spam, but to those who could use the cash, thinking is not always completely clear and reasonable. But on the way to officially proclaiming it a spam, we did some research, and were warned by the following clues.

1) Mr. Perez had an email address that ended in lawyer.com. That seemed fishy, so we checked the website http://edificiolawfirm.com/index.html. All of the "partners" of Mr. Perez had email addresses that ended in edificio.com.

2) Mr. Perez sent a "death certificate". After looking at it carefully, I decided my Photoshop skills are better than that of the scammers. The font size changed mid-sentence, the official stamp was totally phony.

Now things really got fun.

3) I decided to do a reverse image search using the picture of Mr. Perez provided on the website. It led me to another fellow by the name of Dr. Michael Schädlich. He's a real guy I think, and probably unaware that his picture is being used by scammers. BUT, Dr. Schadlich is not only Mr. Pablo Perez at the edificiolawfirm.com site, he is also Herbert Kroon at "Robert McAllister & Partners" (http://robertmcallisterpartners.com/home/profiles.html), and Roger Barkley, director of marketing at Rolls Royce according to a fake (?) linked in profile (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/roger-barclay/32/505/88a).

4) Now, if you follow the links, you might notice that the firm of Robert McAllister & Partners has the EXACT SAME FORMAT website as Edificio Law Firm, which got me thinking about the other pictures on the sight. I conducted another reverse image Google search on the picture of all the partners (of both firms), and found the picture again here: http://www.hornecoupar.com/ - a law firm in Victoria, British Columbia. So, according to this firm, the people in the pictures are Mark Horne, John Coupar, Fiona Hunter, Heather Fisher, and Donovan Waters. I'm fairly certain this is the legitimate law firm. But…
Now things get weird.

5) Three of the five people identified from the Horne and Coupar law firm in Victoria, BC are also the staff of the Topnet Beverage Company in Saudi Arabia (http://topnetbeverages.com/about), where they are identified as Rev. Dr. Walley Ashford, Dr. Blatter von Browich and Mrs. Susan Bell. So, is Topnet Beverage also a fake company? Or is the Horne Coupar law firm?

Who are the scammers?

I don't know, but I assume they work with 10dollarsite.com to build their websites, because that company even uses a site with a similar photograph on a sample of their work (then it was for McKinney Brothers law firm in Denver - http://10dollarsite.com/Portfolio/) and they also worked with http://www.creotec.com/web-design-portfolio.php who created the now deactivated www.spanishpropertytaxrefund.com using the same picture yet again.
Well, there it is. All the relevant fake names, with a couple real ones, whose identities are being borrowed. I hope this little narrative reflecting three hours of sleuth work will help others to avoid be taken in.

The bottom line here, of course, "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."

Again, I don't know who they are, but I hope they get caught. They are preying on normal every-day people, some of whom are despondent enough to pursue the mirage put before them. These guys are no "Robin Hoods" – just run-of-the-mill criminals.

I've just received a letter from a David Gomez at a Spanish "law firm". The format is similar to everyone else's - someone died in the tsunami, and I stand to inherit lots of money if I reply to the lawyer's private email address.

Even though it's an obvious fake, I googled the name of the firm:
Baylo Abogados
C/ Goya 13
1. Izda
28001 Madrid
The phone number is a mobile number.

The first google hits are what appears to be a genuine law firm - Baylos Abogados - located at C/ Goya 12 in Madrid - one of the partners is a David Gómez. (www.baylos.com). I've googled the picture of Mr Gomez and he doesn't appear to be anything other than a lawyer, which indicates to me that the scammers have hijacked a genuine firm's identity and that of poor Mr Gomez.

I would be interested to know whether the scammers are buying up population registers or have got hold of them illegally. My name is generally connected with another address in Sweden, so if I was to get spam coming from anywhere other than the official register it would be to that address. (And the register must be newer than 3 years in this case, due to a postcode change).

This time /September 4th 2013) the letter arrived to Italy (Milano) to my father (88 years old).
The lawyer (Andrew Ward) promits a sure an rely process to obtain 8.5M US kept in securety society.
The money belongs to a relative died in Tsunamy storm in 2004.
He says to work for Cuatrecas in Madrid that has a website (true or false?? - in this website there is the same address and the face of the lawyer). He asks for contact by private emai (ba.andrewward@yahoo.it).
When I digited this address to google I found this Forum.... Whow ham many cases...!!!
We all are relatives of very rich persons!!!
The letter is written in bad italian (I think they used a internet translator)
It was posted from valencia - Spain
The conclusion of the letter is funny: "in case you are not interest please contact me in any case son I ca continue my research with an othe person with your last name......

Just received a letter from this supposed law firm, supposedly in Barcelona, Spain, more precisely "attorney", "barrister", Jorge Rottier Sala", proposing to split 50/50 the millions someone with the same last name left when he was killed with his family in a cyclone while holidaying in Myanmar...

It says "I know you may not be in any ay related to my late client but having a common surname with him is a possibility that the fund will be released or transfer to you. I can guarantee you that if you are willing and interested I will put in place all necessary modality in accordance with the law to legally present you as the true next of kin/beneficiary."

The letter is postmarked Correos CTA Valencia.

I got a letter today from this guy today, by posthttp://belegal.com/forums/images/icons/icon7.png
marcus sollana y socio, solicior y Notaries Public, Avda. del Brasil 38020 Madrid, Spain.

The story, a lady has died in an accident with her only daughter. No relatives anymore. Because I have the same surname as this lady, we have the chance to get herdeposit of 2.360.000 Euros. If I follow his instructions, he will do 50-/-50 with me. 1.180.000 Euros, I really would like to have it.

I never heard such an bullshit. Everybody knows, that someone has to evidence, that you are in any family relation with her.
Otherwise you get nothing and all money goes to the state she lives.

If someone get such letter, don`t think about the money, staiop dreaming and throw it in the next waste basket

Both letters same thing, different first names, same surnames. Both people died in May 2008. One letter is for about USD 3.8 mil and the other USD5.8 mil.
I emailed the Innex to enquire about some further information, and believe it or not, I received a phone call from Spain from the apparent Barrister. I then received another call from him today, asking if my dad was wanting to proceed with the claim. Today we received the second letter, this one being from Milan San Bravo.

I have forwarded copies of both letters to my attorney.

The scam letter I received was posted in Portugal. I live in Canada. The letter says that his client, with the same last name as me, died in a car accident, along with his family, on November 21, 2004. He left US $8,650,000 in a bank account and since no family heir/inheritor has been found, Otero wants me to pose as the next of kin, because of the same surname. We would split the money 50/50. I quite enjoyed it and had a good laugh.

I was forwarded a letter dated in May 2013, addressed to my long deceased mother! It was dated May 7/13 and came from F M Law Firm, Callo de la cruz 92, 28012, Madrid, Spain. The post mark on the envelope was FRANCE!

The writer, Fernando Melvis, stated that my relative, Charles Schario, and his family had been killed in the Madrid Train Bombing of 2004, March 11. He said I was able to claim an inheritance of $6.8 million dollars which had been located in a "one trunk box/Diplomatic Personal Treasure" with a Safe Security Company in Spain.

As he was unable to locate any remaining family members he was authorized to present me to make claims or the vault would be confiscated. If I agreed, we would split the contents 50/50!

Just to be sure, I googled the above mentioned train bombing and was unable to find a list anywhere of the victims. I know that my family had European relatives with this rather unusual surname, but I have not been able to find any info about him.

I have chocked this up to an elaborate scam and am considering reporting it the RCMP Fraud squad.

I got one of those this year too. Posted from Valencia, Spain; I live in Canada. This is probably third or fourth letter of this kind that I received over the course of five - six years.
They must be mailing them more in bulk these days - it was all printed (including signature) and the postage on the envelope was printed too. I remember that one of the early ones really impressed me because it had a post stamp that had to be manually glued to the envelope and the signature was really done by hand - you could see the indentation of the pen in the paper.
The law firm referenced in the letter, "Rodrigo Ferrer and Associates", seems to have a very professionally looking website. The odd thing is that they list a physical address in Madrid, but postal address in Valencia, 335 km distance...
Anyway, as much as one would want that to be true (who wouldn't want to inherit several millions...?) it's a pretty obvious scam...

Same letter from luis Burrell to my home in Montreal comming from Spain, 8.2 millions $$ 50 / 50. The strange thing, we make a travel in Myanmar 2 months ago and the client ( same famely name) died in Myanmar in 2008. They have our adress and travel info. I suspect someone in hotel or air Myanmar exchange our detail with that stupid "Luis Burrel"

I live in Tasmania Australia!
today I received this snail mail letter in the mail from:
Luis Enrique Martinez Nunez (a lawyer)
email: luismnunez@abogados-forum.eu
from: Bufete Perez Vidal & Asociados in Madrid Spain
phone: 0034 632 071 570
fax: 0034 917 903 717
web: perezvidal.eu
dated 30.01.2014

the deceased died in December 2006
Sum of $7.9Mil - woopee to be split 50/50
the most hillarious thing however is the following
He states he is from Spain right .... so the letter should be addressed from Spain
but it has been stamped and posted from FRANCE!!!!

as with the other letters it is on cheap paper and not even a real signature just a scanned one!
Also if it were an official letter the other thing I would expect to be on a envelope would be a return address! - I mean come one .... such important news .... you would think that if it didn't get to the recipient they would want it back!!!

hope you all stay safe and no one falls for this massive scam .... its terrible
the worst thing is that I have only lived at this address for 6 months so I would love to know where they got the address from!!

Hey Guys

We were offered only 7,9 M Dollars. In Spain they use Euro! What the hell. If he wanted it to be taken more serious, at least he should get the currency right.


Stay safe!

Hi
I live in Australia.
I just received a letter from a lawyer in Paris, France (French stamp, no return address on envelope but full address, email, phone & fax on the letterhead). A client of this lawyer, a Spanish business "magnate" with my surname, died in the Nargis cyclone and left $US2.8million in a safety deposit box in Spain. Unable to find an heir and with the box about to be deemed "unclaimed" and confiscated by the state if he can't find a legit claimant he has written to me because of my surname. He has "..worked out all the modalities to complete the operation effectively" and if I will contact him and be his partner then when the box is released to me we will split the money 50/50.

But I have some questions:
Lots of other people are getting offered lots more than $2.4million. Is this lawyer trying to cheat me already before we even get started? And 50/50 split? I think 80/20 my way sounds better. How do I deal with this cheating lowlife and get what I really deserve?

Hi Guys
Today I got a letter from Advocate Franck Morris in Madrid stating that I am the lucky recipient of a sum of $6.4M which leaves feeling cheated as some of you got offered $7.9M ;)
Anyway, this was the latest to this hopefully unsuccessful scam.

Got a letter today from Roman San Calvo, lawyer in Madrid Spain and similar to previous posts I am the lucky relative of Edwin ______ a business magnate who died in the Cyclone Nargis Disaster, blah-blah-blah. My prize is 50/50 split of $5.8M. I decided to set up a dummy email account and respond just to satisfy my curiosity to see what they say.

Just received a letter from Mr. Hortet of KPL Asociados addressed to my deceased father informing him that he is heir to $9.5M U.S. Postage in France must be cheaper than in Spain. Letter appears to be a Xerox copy used in a mass mailing.

Ich bin aus Deutschland... und bin nicht mit Ulli Hoeneß verwandt :-)
Aber trotzdem bin ich reich, weil mein Verwandter vor 2 Jahren verstorben ist und hat nun 16,5 Mio € hinterlassen... und ich darf 60% davon behalten ;-)
Mr. Lanx Hops Gonzalez aus Madrid hat mir heute ein Fax geschrieben, und will sich mit mir treffen... ha, ha , ha

God bless the tossers of the world, where would we be without them? Beaut start to the day. The wife is up for 4.75 mil. Im getting replaced with a younger, more robust model and being paid a tidy sum to go quietly. Everyones a winner. The funny thing is that these guys post this crap to countries where your average citizen may have a little cash but they generally have access to the internet as well. Brilliant. The letter is so dodgey in its entirety, its worth framing for the giggle factor alone. This is way better than the pathetic text messages that get sent out. Anyone tried emailing back for a small up front cash deposit from these guys as proof of jackpot at the barristers expence? The mrs reckons we could throw it on the house loan. Stoked to find this blog. kudos to the creator of it.

I'm sure that the French postal service is very grateful to David Jorge Hortet for the vast amounts of mail that he is sending around the world. At least in Australia he is keeping letter volumes up for international inbound mail. Like the comments below it's the same deal with different surname, same amount and same excuse. I guess with the high unemployment rate in Spain what else can you do on a barmy summers night!! Keep it up Mr Hortet sooner or later you will hook a sucker .....

My envelope was mailed from Spain, not France from Franck Morris (Esq). My alleged next of kin died in the Tsunami of 2004. He didn't have as much money as some of the other folks. Only a paltry US$6.4M.

I hope that we can continually help them develop their product with this blog so they can maybe someday get it right... well except for the entire premise of this letter that is just absolutely ridiculous.

From Edmonton Ab, Canada
Stay safe everybody.

Must have been a mass mailing, and this "gentlemen" spent a bunch on stamps by looks of it. Posted from France, "lawyer" from Spain, my Japanese boyfriend apparently had a cousin named Leonard living in Spain...wish we knew, would have paid him a visit.....how unfortunate he also lost all his family in a car accident....

Worries me, if this type of letter is sent to the most vulnerable, ie, the elderly who may fall for this....

Interesting. Got a letter from the same Spanish lawyer. Also regarding an estate from a distant family relation called Leonard. You'd think he could use a few different first names! First thing that came up when I googled the name of his law firm was this thread. Funny.

His name is Manuel Pacheco. A Mexican citizen that lives in Spain. He says he has contacts in banks where you can get loans of any amounts. The truth is that this individual does not have anything. He tries to get payment in cash for services that will never happen. Supposedly the payments are for attorneys fees, company creation, etc but when you ask to meet the attorneys, they will never show up. Sometimes he also works out of Amsterdam where he says he has more connections. Be aware of this individual as he is a professional scam artist.

Elderly are being targeted by Roman San Calvo...posted from Valencia; have changed the name to Edwin!
Whole family wiped out by a cyclone!... No wonder Spain and Portugal are suffering financially with all the "business magnates" being felled by disasters.

My poor mother-in-law is despondent after realizing it was just a hoax!

I'm in Australia and just received a cheaply printed letter supposedly from this Spanish Law firm that exists and has a lawyer by this name offering half of 8,340,000 Euros. An obvious scam but wanted it reported somewhere. Estate was for Cara Johanson who supposedly died in tsunami in 2004.

I hope they get no responses from gullible people, just a lartge potage cost.

May they rot in jail sometime.

Same story here in Ottawa - almost identical actually. Over $6million inheritance (split 50/50 of course), wealthy long lost relative and his entire family killed in a cyclone. Chest of money will be delivered to your home but they need you to pay the flights for the diplomats that need to deliver the money. Letter well written enough for anyone who is vulnerable. A shame really. Wish there was a way to track them down and make they accountable.

Stay away! Do not respond.

UK here! Same letter, same stuff. I contacted one of the police's departments in Madrid as someone already posted their e-mail address. I will now keep quiet and see what this person is going to write me back. I am really curious though, haha. In the letter he says he is called Manuel Conthe (I googled him, he's quite a big deal), so... these scammers are really desperate, lol. Just be careful people.
