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.
My name is Gary, and I live in the Midwestern United States. This site is intended to expose the frauds and scams that are so pervasive on the internet, especially today. One hundred per- cent of the e-mails you get that promise you millions are never, ever real. They'll tell you they're "dying," trying to gain your sympathy. They're not dying, they're lying. Click Here for the "Dying" scams. Don't fall for it, and never send them any money, no matter what they tell you. Oh, and good luck hacking this website. It's got a nice strong password on it.
