We received this report from our regular here, and there are additional attachments of subsequent respond from this fake “Pell Gordon”. We do not have the respond from our submitter but it is interesting to see what the scammer writes. I was wondering if he did actually send his “wife’s” passport over.
btw, FAKING someone’s else Next-of-Kin so as to collect “Inheritance Money” IS a breach of law.
And this scammer says that he is a “Bankrupt”, something which we would not expect of a real employee working in a Bank.
