Hi,

Anybody knows what can I do, if I was really stupid, and I found this website too late and I sent a copy of my passport to one of these fraud? What should I do?
I will travel one day after tomorrow to Spain for a week. I can't close my passport.
I'm really afraid, I will be stolen. I did not give to him my bank details, and my address. So He knows just my details from my passport.
HELP ME, PLEASE!

Daniel

this is what he is sending to me

The procedure in this transaction is that after we have processed the legal documents then we will approach the bank for the payout of the estate to you directly because they can not pay the estate to me but to the beneficiary. Since you will be the one to receive the money then split it and return my own share as I will instruct you. Pls note you have to confirm with me first before you get in touch or say anything to the bank so as not to ask the wrong questions as i will be guiding you as we go along.
For us to start in earnest, I am attaching the affidavit form which you will fill up, scan and attach back to me as email attachment for me to proceed in processing the sworn affidavit, Attorney general notification and other supporting documents.
Before i can swear the affidavit at the High Court, there are processes to be followed and files to be presented, in view of this i am attaching the required affidavit form which you need to fill up and send to me to enable me prepare and present the required documents supporting the affidavit. Print out the affidavit form, fill it up legibly and scan it back to me. A copy of my id photo is attached also
On the form P.P/Id should be your passport number or driver's license number, your social security number is not necessary.
Next of kin is any person you fill to have your part of the fund if any thing happen to you however this section is optional, you may leave it blank if you decide so.
On receiving the filled form i will need 2 to 3 days to have the affidavit ready and present same to you from there we will process all the other required documents.
On filling the affidavit form, if you have any question do not fail to mail me or call me on phone.
Knowing that processing all the documents needed for this transaction will cost money, I will take care of all the legal documents but be aware that i may call on you to help financially if the need arises but i will definitely try as much as possible try to handle it alone.
If you have any reservation about this transaction, make it known to me before we proceed. I will handle all the process from here but when it is time you will be in direct contact with the bank here and that will be when they will require your banking information for the transfer.
Depending on how fast we move, we can get this done in about 10 to 15 days.
I may need your direct number as I will be calling you for briefing from time to time, you have mine I presume, you can call me at any time, if in the day and I don't answer, I am in court.
Once more, may God guide and protect you and your family.
Attached to this mail is the affidavit form, fill and re-send to me.
Yours sincerely,
Barr.Azman Bin Ismail

This document is the final document that gives you legal authorization to lay claim to the funds and also gives you the authority to request for the transfer of these funds into your nominated account. I will be sending you a copy of the "LETTER OF PROBATE" for your perusal.
