I think I get more of these next-of-kin scams than any other, but with this one, I Googled for Tatsuo Tanaka, and couldn't find him listed in any of the "exposing scams" sites like this one anywhere. I'm assuming this one was made up fairly recently, and figured it was time to get it indexed in the search engines. Mr. Tanaka himself, of course, knows nothing about any of this. This entry will be located here for a little while, in the upper right hand corner, along with a photo of the real Tatsuo Tanaka. Here are some next-of-kin scam vids.

We get kind of disappointed with these guys sometimes. They can't think of anything more original than the ancient "next-of-kin" scams that used to circulate in the postal mail and on fax machines before there was an internet. We picked this one because the "client's" name is so unusual. Qvortrup Sadou? Hmm. And yet that name apparently did show up in The Guardian article that's listed with this entry at "Urgency Needed" in the upper right hand column. Listen to "Whackhead" piss off a Nigerian scam artist in this video clip :o) Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
I get these next-of-kin scams all the time, but I haven't posted one in awhile. I love these "first name - first name" pseudonyms, like James Edward, or Jim Scott. It keeps second or third language (or more) English speaking scammers from making more mistakes in English, such as "Johnson Greg." Anyway, "James" writes to us from a free e-mail address, and expects us to reply to him at a free e-mail address, and yet he also claims to represent "Ocean Fisheries" LOL. Someone "died" a few years back, and now he wants you to stand in as "next-of-kin," because you are apparently the "beneficiary" to the dead guy's "fortune" of $12.5 million. No, you're not. This entry is linked here, and listen to "Whackhead" piss off a Nigerian scam artist.
These stories are always the same. Someone wants you to believe they're a "barrister," which, in the UK, is an attorney. Someone else who was supposedly rich died, no one can find the relatives, so now they want you to stand in as "next-of-kin" to collect millions of dollars, or else it will be confiscated by the state.

Here's another next-of-kin scam that says the scammer's "late client" has £10.8 million in an account, and he wants you to step in as "next-of-kin." The story is familiar, but in this one, he says he gets 50 percent, you get 40 percent, 5 percent should be for charity, and the other 5 should be for any expenses between us both.
Great! I told him I would use the 5 percent to pay his scamming fee, so that in addition to "his" £5.4 million, he would get the extra 5 percent, or £540,000. Then he would be free to send me my £4.32 million, since his scamming fee would be paid and then some. So far, there's been no reply. I wonder why. Oh, right. I almost forgot. There is no money because it's a scam! LOL!

Oh let's see, this one is pretty lengthy, but the "Next-of-Kin" scam is always the same. Someone "rich" has "died," has no heirs, naturally, and now the scammer wants to split nonexistent money with you. This particular story is on the bottom left of this page. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
There was of course, never any "first attempt." This scammer tries to convince us that his first scam-mail went "undelivered," and he is trying to reach us at "the same e-mail address" that is on the "WILL." The scam-mail, however, was bulk mailed out to hundreds of e-mail addresses, maybe more. He points out the word "WILL" in particular to grab your attention. Some "late engineer" has made you a "beneficiary" to his "WILL," $22.5 million, in fact, and yet having nothing to do with any facts whatsoever LOL. He grabs not only our attention, but also our emotions as well, stating that the nonexistent money is for the "poor and needy." How touching. If you get back to him, however, he will no doubt tell you that you will get to keep part of "the money."

Oh! My heroes! LOL! The World Bank and the United Nations are both coming to my "rescue" to get me my "payment" of $650,000! "My e-mail address" is supposedly among one of "listed scam victims," and I "should quit paying money to the 'wrong' people." These are the wrong people, this is just another Nigerian 419 Scam. The money does not exist and it never did. To see more of these scam samples, Click Here, and please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated.
Have you noticed how the scammers are now using first and last names that are interchangeable? Otherwise they might have said something like "Fowler Frank." "Bruce Michael," for example, claims to be an "attorney" who had a rich client, and yet the name of his "law firm" is "Bruce & Partners" LOL. It doesn't say how much he supposedly left behind, but highlights that the rest of his family "died" in the Sumatran tsunami in 2004. His "heart related condition" is what killed him, due to "the death of his family," so he has no heirs and left no will, of course. "Bruce," as always, wants you to respond to a free e-mail address @vf.vc. What's that? Why, it's a Windows Live ID, of course! Related Links: Next-of-Kin Scams.
Mr. Isa "Scammer" Bello is a "bank manager" in Burkina Faso, a west African nation. "An abandoned sum" of $10.5 million once "belonged" to a "foreign customer" who "died" in the Concorde crash in Paris in 2001. No "next-of-kin" has ever claimed the "FUND," of course, and Scammer Bello keeps on reminding us about the "FUND" in all CAPS LOL. He claims that a "Burkinabe" cannot "stand in" to receive the money that doesn't exist. See more "next-of-kin" scam samples Here, and please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated.
