| Re: my inheritence |
I received this Email from Barrister Martin Heise. After I read the attached letter I knew it was to good to be true.
The first part of the Email wrote "Kindly see attached letter for your attention." the letter was a pdf file.
In the letter Barrister Martin Heise wrote that his client has died and left $6.5m, He wrote: I will like you to stand as next of kin then I will inform the bank that I have found a heir so the bank can release the funds to you. Once the money is released to you, we will shall share in the ratio of 50% for me. 50% for you as your benefit then we will map out 5% to upset any expenses made on the process of this transaction
Please be kind to get back to me if you are not interested so I can further my search for another partner (not another heir). I have never known of any Lawyers that would write a letter with so many mistakes in English. I've never known of any bank that would release funds to someone without any personal information. Barrister Martin Heise never asked me for any information of any kind, that to me was to strange. I looked here in Scamalot and I found the Benatt Zinn Chambers scam letter from 2006. That letter is the same as the one I received except the for a few miner details, like the country where I live, the sum of money was not the same and the place where Benatt Zinn Chambers have there offices was not the same. I looked in British phone book sites and in all the British business, lawyer and law sites, I found nothing about Benatt Zinn Chambers and nothing about Barrister Martin Heise anywhere in all the UK. I'm telling you how I knew it was a scam so that anyone reading my letter will know what to look for so they don't get scammed.
