This scam was forwarded to me by a reader. First is the original email she received. She replied asking what it was about and was then sent the usual scam email with a long story about a dead client, no relations, lots of money, etc.
She realises that “A A Flockhart” is a scammer. I hope you do to. He doesn’t want you to handle any business for him – he wants you to send him money. If you reply he will start trying to charge you fees. Ignore him.
I have a business for you to handle with me. Should you be interested, please contact me.
