Got another "next-of-kin" scam this afternoon. They're finally learning to use the '£' symbol for British Pounds Sterling. I've seen scammers use J's and L's in its place; I'm sure you have, too LOL. It's the usual story. A "rich client" is dead, has "no heirs" and "no will," all other "family members" have also perished in some accident, no other "family" has come forward to "claim the fortune," and now they want you to stand in as "next-of-kin" to collect the nonexistent cash. If you ask them to backup their story, they will provide you with a BBC News link to show you that the "rich client's" death really happened. The link is often included in the scam-mail. Percentages vary according to what you would get, but, of course, 40 percent of nothing is still nothing LOL. They have not "secured" any "legal documents," and the "arrangement" is quite illegitimate. And, of course, they say it is "very urgent," hoping you will not think before taking the bait, and also hoping you will respond before their free e-mail address gets nuked by the provider, which, in this case, was Hotmail.

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.
