It is amazing that people all over the world continue to get ridiculous e-mails claiming that they have inherited millions of dollars from the estate of someone they never met in their life. I get these all the time and thought I would play along just to see how far they would take this. When I got this e-mail claiming that I had been left millions of dollars in the will of Jurgen Krugger, a man I never heard of, I decided to have some fun and the first thing I did was do a search on the internet to see if this so-called law firm, Johnson + Lowry Chambers, was on any scam lists. You better believe they are! It shows many other people getting the same e-mail I got, and different attorneys names were attached to the e-mails. How stupid can you get?
So I wanted to see what these idiots wanted, so I played along. First thing I did was question them since they didn't use my name in their e-mail, so I asked for "credibility" from them by asking them to identify who I was. Well, they had my name, so I'll give them that. Then they asked me to send them my address to verify that I was the person in the will, and I did, and lo and behold, they said I was the guy. I asked them for a copy of the will, and I received one, although I don't know what their wills look like so it could be a fake, which I'm sure it is. It portrays that this Jurgen Krugger as passing away on 7/30/02. One one page he leaves all these properties to his wife, a few cars to her as well, a car for his son (that's all?) or his son gets it all if she preceeds his death, a lot to charitable organizations, a bank account to his wife, and then the rest of the estate is give to his wife (50%), the Home for the Handicapped (29%), and then 11% to a person with my name, which they claim is $ 30 million, One Hundred Thousand Dollars (rich SOB wasn't he?), and then a couple other people with smaller amounts. Funny though, it says that if we reject the inheritance, then it goes to his son! Why is he leaving all this money to charities and people like me, whom he never knew, instead of his son? Must have been a real b*****d of a kid wasn't he? If this kid stands to get all these millions of dollars instead of it going to strangers, why doesn't he contest the will? Of this was just too good to be true! I was going to have some fun with this! So this Mr. Amen tells me to contact the Probate Courts in London (haven't yet), and you can bet what is coming next. "Yes, we will release the fund to you, but first, you must pay (?) thousand dollars for such things as tax clearance certificates, anti-money laundering fees, etc. etc.". Well, I am having too much fun exposing these bastards for what they are doing, so I am going to contact them and let's see how much they want from me and then I'll come back and let everyone know. In the meantime, don't do anything if you get a message from these people. Let's see just how much they want. I am willing to bet that if I tell them to take these so-called costs out of the funds, they will refuse or tell me they can't do that. Let's wait and see. I'll keep you posted. God this is fun, but sad for those that have been taken by these b******s!
