    Latest Email Scam
    Check out this latest email scam (at least it's new for me). They never once even used my name.


    FROM BARR.ALEX WILLIAMS (ESQ)
    robert & ASSOSCIATES,
    Albert Embankments, London
    SE1 7SR, United Kingdom.

    Your Attn,

    I am Barrister.ALEX WILLIAMS (ESQ) . I have a client, who bears
    the same name with you,a foreigner who used to work with Mekon
    Associates Company in London.On the 2nd of August 2003, my
    client and his wife and their three children were involved
    in a car accident along Manchester Express Road.All
    occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives.
    Since then I have made several enquiries to your Embassy to
    locate any of my client's extended relatives, this has also
    proved unsuccessful. After these severalunsuccessful
    attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the
    internet, tolocate any member of his family but of no
    avail, hence I contacted you.

    I have contacted you to assist me in repatriating the money
    left behind my client before they got confiscated or
    declared unserviceable by the Finance House where these
    huge deposits were lodged. Particularly, the Finance House
    where the deceased had an account valued at about
    US$42M has issued me a notice to provide the next-of-kin or
    have the account confiscated within the next ten official
    working days.
    .
    Since I have been unsuccess ful in locating the relatives
    for over nine (9)months now, I seek your consent to present
    you as the next of kin to the deceased so that the proceds
    of this account valued at US$42M can be paid to you and
    then you and I can share the money; 60% to me and 40%
    to you, I have all necessary legal documents that can be
    used to back up any claim we may make, all I require is
    your honest co-o peration to enable us see this transaction
    through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a
    legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any
    breach of the law.

    Anticipating your prompt response

    Yours Sincerely,
    BARR.ALEX WILLIAMS (ESQ).

    As far as I remember there is no such road as the Manchester Express Road in the UK.

    left behind my client before they got confiscated or
    declared unserviceable by the Finance House where these
    huge deposits were lodged.
    I am pretty certain that the UK government would give a lot more than 3 years to find any relatives in a case like this.
    Also I have never in my life heard of a bank referred to as a Finance House so this scam would not get very far with me LOL
    One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.

    I remember growing up hearing the story about; "There's one born every minute" and that saying is still true!

    They did a story about scams like this on Dateline. Actually, responded, made arrangements to meet the scammers in another country under the guise of bringing them money, went, interviewed them ...

    The really sad part of the story was the people who had actually fallen for these scams. One woman went through her life savings, and then borrowed money on her credit cards.

    Gordon, from what hear nothing has to be bite size when slopping the pigs. You throw food in their trough and they chow down. The gluttons don't even look at what they're eating.

    There's two really sad aspects to this. One is that they prey on the desperate and often, people who just don't know better, like the elderly. I think it would be unfair to characterize them as "suckers". Secondly, most of the scammers are in countries where they can get away with this kind of stuff.
