Overraskende hyggelig brev fra Spania – I’m rich :)

Guttungen kom nettopp inn døra med et brev fra Spania. – Jøssenavn, så spennende å få post fra fjerne land, tenkte jeg. Brevet var stemplet i Valencia med ordentlig frimerke, så her er vel alt i orden? Jeg åpner konvolutten og finner et brev som virkelig gir meg bakoversveis. Jammen er det ikke en kar ved navn Johannes H. Nikolaisen som har avgått ved døden.

Advokaten hans vil gjerne gjøre en deal med meg siden jeg har samme etternavn. Han vil sammen med meg «ta en spansk en» (bokstavelig talt) og bruke mitt kjære etternavn for å få kloa i pengene. Begynner det å ringe noen bjeller nå?

Som så ofte når noe er for godt til å være sant (jeg skal få deler av arven pålydende noe over 5 millioner Euro), så er det ganske enkelt det: For godt til å være sant. Vi snakker naturlig om en avansert variant av Nigeria scam. Men her brukes altså vanlig post, brev og greier. Skulle ikke forbause om det er en eller annen som faller for noe slikt. Jeg bruker derfor mine midler (bloggen og søkemotorkjennskap) for om mulig å unngå at andre blir lurt av dette tullet.

Det er ikke alltid helt enkelt å søke opp navn, telefonnummer eller andre ting i Google. I dette tilfellet var adressen nevnt andre steder på nett, f.eks. her og her.

Jeg siterer hele brevet her, kanskje du havner innpå her via en søkemotor?

OUR REF: DJ/RSO/PO1/1875/01/45 FECHA: 6 / 6 / 2011
Before I proceed I must first apologize for this unsolicited letter to you, I am aware that this is certainly not a conventional way of approach to establish a relationship of trust, but you will realize the need for my action.

Let me start by first introducing myself properly to you. It may surprise you to receive this letter from my humble self, since there was no previous correspondence between us. My name is Barrister Raul Acebo-Pombo, a personal Attorney to Late Mr. Johannes H. Nikolaisen. My purpose of contacting you is for you to help secure the funds left behind by my late client, to avoid it being confiscated or declared serviceable by the Bank Where this fund valued €5,550,000.00 (Five Million Five Hundred Fifty Thousand Euro) deposited by my client before his death.

This Bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin or the account will be declared unserviceable and the fund diverted to the Bank treasury. So far all my efforts to get a hold of someone related to this man has proved abortive. Hence, I have contacted you. I am actually asking for your consent to present you to the Bank as the Next onf Kin/beneficiary of my late client’s fund, since you have the same last name, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to your account.

All the legal documentations to back up your claim as my client’s Next of Kin I shall provided them. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us achieve this transaction. I wish to point out that I want 20% of this money to be shared among the charity Organizations, while the remaining 80% is shared equally between us. This proposition is entirely risk free. I will use my position as the client’s attorney to guarantee the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please contact me via Tel. 0034 672 969 949 or E-mail: raulacebopombo@yahoo.es

Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand this transaction well.

The intended transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any infraction of the law. However, if this business offends your moral ethics, do accept my sincere apology.

If on the contrary you wish to achieve this goal with me, kindly get back to me with your interest for further explanation.

Kindest Regards

Raul Acebo-Pombo
Principal Attorney

Jeg må jo innrømme at jeg er litt imponert over hvordan disse svindlerne går frem for å lokke til seg «kunder», men samtidig er det jo skremmende. Er det virkelig mennesker som går på limpinnen?

  1. Hey Rune.

    My father just received a similar letter. It is, almost down to every word, the same. Thanks for posting the scanned version too, they look exactly alike. This one is from a different law firm (Bufete Cabello Abogados), which really exist. I came here through the ref. number, so thanks for putting it out there.
    BTW, I'm Danish, so I read this through Google translate. Sorry if I misunderstood something.
    Martin
