    same experience for me, June 2019

He wants to share the money 40-40% and 10% will go to set up a trust fund in the name of the man whom I share the same surname with. This alleged lawyer has gone so far in his scam, that he has phoned me several times and send me three documents, a death certificate, a certificate of deposit of the money, and a deed of lodge, just trying to convince me that he is telling the truth. But there are so many descrepancies in his story, because he wants this to be strictly between us and there must be no third part until the fund is successfully claimed. He even wants me to come to Spain an claim the fund, and he will be my lawyer and make all the paperwork, which will be totally legal and transparent, and bears no risk for me. The finance company will then transfer the money to my account, and mr Lazcano will then come to my place to disburse the funds. So please be aware og this man.

    I was the victim of this fraud and lost some money by acquiring these supposed documents. I can't believe how dishonest and unethical these people (Nigerians) are. They will go to any lengths to scam people. Sad, sad, sad.

    Another example for the inheritance scam - avoid: www.bufetehalcon.com

    Here is another example.

    Spanish "lawyers" contact you to claim an inheritance.
    They have a website full of content but poorly made (particularly for a law firm claiming to be one of the largest).

    BUFETE-HALCON may be a real law firm but www.bufetehalcon.com is a Scam site.

    Example scam letter:

    Dear Mr. #######, your further concern-

    It's imperative to revert back to you regarding the actual situation behind my research and demanding your confidential interest in the matter described here-under for a reputable partnership, I'm satisfied having technically interviewed you as to ensure the intents of this opportunity falls in-line, I've been representing this very case over these years, and I'm sure only with absolute transparency and under a concrete agreement within us we could carry out a fairly legal transaction. Emphatically I've an ultimatum from a Bank here in Spain of a shutdown account of late Mr. Marcell Eronald #######, legally administered as custodian before his accidental death. I fully understand you are not related biologically, but by virtue of the circumstances surrounding your names similarities, has richly concluded a 100% possibility of you a potential entity to carry out acquisition of the financial asset under my legal influence.

    I'm compelled to act in this case, because ever since I was contacted by the bank of his left investment, approximately "Eight Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars" made before his death in 2009, I've been maintaining a close administrative relationship while consenting as legal custodian of my deceased client until the recent acquisition frame notification, that their bank policy cannot condole the dormant account condition anymore, rather the account will be repatriated (Lack of supersede) and ceased finally. Under the ultimatum, I have done efforts to locate rightful relative but to no avail. Due to persistence pressure I thought searching for someone with the same last names, competent enough to be placed in position of next of kin to claim this fund, as my professional ethic allows me in this case.

    I needed someone who I can entrust, and capable to such financial transaction. Lucky enough you are one from the contacted persons and my instinct tells positively to entrust your partnership. For the fact you bear the surnames [######] it's guaranteed that I can present you as next of kin (beneficiary) since there was no written WILL made. All I am asking of you is to accept the acquisition preparation on your name, set-up and administer Trusts, carry out the Administration Of Estates and prepare an administer Powers Of Attorney so that you can receive the funds. NOTE; If this is not done now, the Bank will consider releasing the funds to Government account as UNCLAIMED FUND, as they did noted on the last message, so to avoid that let us quickly take advantage of this golden opportunity since my position allows me to present you as next of kin to the legal claims which I can assure you a 100% risk free for us.

    Here is the deal; we shall share this fund 50% each when you finally receive the claim to any valid operational bank account outside Spain. Be assured I have made profound research on the Spanish Probate system and I can guarantee you based on my expertise. This is one life time opportunity and still I do request that you keep the content of this mail confidential and the integrity of the information, because I have contacted you independently on behalf of our chamber [BUFETE HALCON]. Please if you demand to get more information, just let me know as I am willing to share further details or give answers to all questions.

    Thank you in advance for your anticipated co-operation.


    Best regards,
    Mrs. Florina Clarke Modesto.

    Another to add to the list...

    Came via Fax to a business in Canada

    Has a stylized capital M at the top right corner.

    Avinguda de França s/n,
    Carrer de Trafalgar, 53, 46023, València, spain (yes, it’s in lower case)
    Tel: +34 602 692 883, Fax:+34 932 205 446. (Space after colon on Tel but not after Fax)

    OUR REF: ES/MHSO/P012/7367/04/19 YOUR REF: FECHA: 09/ 04/ 2019

    This one took the addressee name and matched it with a country. (i.e. Hong, therefore Chinese relative)

    “Attention: xxxxx

    My name is....I got your contact information from your country’s public archive while searching for a last name homogeneous to my late client’s name xxxx a business mogul who lived in Spain...”

    Safety deposit box is Spain. I found a few spelling errors that gave it away right away. And keep in mind, no law firm would have a gmail email!

    Also note that these scammers take the time to find you but then all of a sudden you must act within a specified amount of time! Also the secrecy... any law firm would allow you time to verify through another law firm the legitimacy of the claim.

    At the end, an unreadable signature and this info again.

    There is no registered lawyer under the name of Sofía Guillermo Celia Alberto. You can search yourself at the Abogacia Española public directory .

    Everything else about this company looks very suspicious. I would recommend staying away.

    My relative has 26.7 million

    We got a letter today from Mrs Catalina Moreno. Our relative also died in a car accident 6 years ago. She wants 50%, 40% for us and 10% to charity. Very confidential though. Not to talk to anybody. I’m surprised that she spent 1.3 Euro on the stamp. On the internet, this scam doesn’t cost them anything. So this seems a bit more legit when they do it this way.

    Phone Call and email

    I recently received the same phone call and letter regarding a timeshare in Mexico. how did you handle it? i have been ignoring the phone calls for the past few days but they keep calling every day.
    I checked and the domain email (www.llyasociados.com) appears to be under 1 year old.
