    I got a letter from him too. I sincerely doubt it, the wording is terrible and he used alot of the word "actually", not professional enough for a legit lawyer I'm afraid.

    Default I got it too

    I think this is a scam. I just wondered where he got my name and address. Spain is too far from Australia. He wanted to share my inheritance of 3.7 million euros.

    We got a letter from the guy too, posted from Portugal. I think they have discovered Australian White Pages website. No real inheretance I am afraid.

    Default Scam

    He is nigerian claiming to be an agent for the solictor. When i told him i had my doubts about his authenticity he hung up straight away. LOL!

    Hopefully when ppl get the letter they will have the sense to google his name and uncover this forum. Although in fairness I highly doubt any Australian would be so gullible.

    There is no registered lawyer in Spain under that name.

    Please read the following article:

    Public Warning.-Scammers passing themselves off as Spanish lawyers and law firms - 13th March 2009

    9. Something strange about their names? Funny names such as “Woley Fernandez” or “Barrister Perez Santos ESQ” are names made up by Nigerians conducting 419 advance fee scams (the terms “Barrister” or “ESQ” don’t exist in Spanish law). Also, fraudsters tend to cite fake organisms such as “The Ministry of Finance” or “The Security Company”.

    Unhappy inheritance

    hi there,

    i too have just opened a letter sent to me by this "lawyer" Mankin Victor esq...stating i have the same amount of monies awaiting me, if i forward my payment details and i go halves in the cash! nice try! so i just googled his name....and found this thread!

    they sure have gone to alot of trouble posting the letter to Australia from portigal....bit scarey to think someone might actually believe it , and end up with no money in there own account...is ther someone we can report this too?

    cheers.
