I actually received 2 messages...the first I told this person I had no idea who the dead man was...here's the response...mind you, I declined:

FROM THE DESK OF : Barr. Edward Preston
E.U. Preston & Solicitors.
28th December, 2006.

Attn: Stephanie,
We acknowledge the receipt of your email in this chamber and also
want you to know that you have absolute right to reject this WILL
as much as you have the right to accept it as well. If you wish to turn
it down then let me know so I can send you a WILL rejection form to
fill and revert to this office. I am not going to impose it on you
but just doing my job here.
I can imagine that the late Engr. Horst Schneider must have known
that you will put the money to good use for the less privileged of
which he was aware that you can achieve, that is why he selected
you. Also, understand that I don't know you neither have I met you
before, but my contacting you is based on the recommendation of
late Engr. Horst Schneider.

Be further informed that these funds will not be released to you
without some proper identification. I have never met you before
like I said and to be able to carry out our duties effectively as
sole executors of the WILL of Late Engr. Horst Schneider,
We must be convinced that you are who the testament says
you are. Hence please re-confirm to us through fax or via email;
your full contact details to include your full name and address,
telephone and fax number (if any) and if you have moved to a new
address then indicate both the new and old one for my verification
with what I have in my file. Any difference or discrepancies in the
information provided by you will mean that I am contacting the wrong
person and I will stop all communication with you outrightly.

Your information would be taken to the probate division of the
International Court of Justice for verification. After the confirmation,
the probate division would now release your letter of administration
for claims to these bequest/funds. This document as well as the
Certificate of Deposit issued by the Security Deposit Bank to
Engr. Horst Schneider when the funds were deposited by him will then
be released to you; this will give you the legal backing to receiving
these funds.We sincerely hope that the above requirement be sent to us soon
so we can proceed with the documentation. And note that we cannot
send any document to you until we are fully convinced that we have the
true beneficiary.

Thank you for your anticipated co-operation.

Yours Faithfully,
Edward Preston (Esq)
Fax: +448701309820

P.S We have limited period to conclude this so I can move on to the next beneficiary on the WILL of of my late client

I RECEIVED A LETTER ALONG WITH A CHECK STATING THAT I HAD WON A LOTTERY AND I NEEDED TO CALL THE NUMBER LISTED. I CALLED THE NUMBER AND IT WAS A NUMBER IN IRELAND A THE LADY TOLD ME TO CASH THE CHECK AND WHEN I DID SHE WOULD GIVE ME A CONFIRMATION NUMBER AND I WOULD BE SENT A CHECK IN THE MAIL OF MY WINNINGS. I DEPOSITED THE CHECK AND MY BANK PUT A HOLD ON THE CHECK. SO I CALLED THE LADY BACK AND SHE SAID THAT I WOULD HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL I HAD THE MONEY IN MY HAND TO GET THE CONFIRMATION NUMBER. I DON'T KNOW IF THE CHECK WILL CLEAR AND PLUS THE LADY SAID THAT I WOULD NOT HAVE TO GIVE ANY BANK INFORMATION TO THEM TO RECIEVE MY WINNINGS. I WILL UPDATE EVERYONE TO LET THEM KNOW HOW THINGS ARE GOING.

I also have one pending from SCB bank,, this one is for winings in excess of $800,000.00, again??, $1,900.oo is to be sent "immediately" to one opra Chumka(SP?) in Nigeria!

I received a check for $2840.00 and a letter from Trans Communications saying I had won a consumer compensation draw. There was a telephone number to call. I called the number and the guy told me to deposit or cash the check and send $2311.00 to a lady in Canada. I haven't done anything with the check. It looks so real. The check has JPMorgan Chase Bank and a compmany called Chemetall Foote Corp. in Kings Mountain, NC. Is this real?


2006-12-26 15:22:09 -
I received a check for 4,975 from OLGC Financial Group. I called them and was told to cash the check, take 2800 and send cash via Western Union to Anthony William-7329 Clark Blvd-Ontario Canada.
Call them back and let them know that I have done it and they will release the balance of the 250,000.00 that I won.

Whooooooo Hooooooo!!!!!!!!!!

I know I won't be out the 2800.00 when the check bounces either...........

I WAS ANNOUNCED A WINNER OF A COCA-COLA 120 YEARS PROMOTION OF 1 MILLION POUNDS IN BRITISH MONEY.
I WAS SUPPOSE TO SEND 558.00 DOLLARS FOR TNT COURIER WORLDWIDE EXPRESS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM VIA WESTERN UNION. DON'T DO IT IT'S A SCAM. RESEARCH EVERY THING BEFORE SENDING ANY MONEY.
SUZANNE

OLGC - scam or not? I received check for 4975.00 They told me to deposit, wait til clears & send 2800.00 Well, if the check clears - why would I send them money? OLG site says no taxes have to be paid up front. Could this check possibly clear?


2006-12-26 14:36:50 -
I got an E-mail Saying I won money from Mastercard/microsoft Mega Jackpot from the U.K. Is this Fraudulent or legite. The people who contacted me told me to be careful of scammers using the same format. is there a real one out there and is this one legite? They gave me e ref # and e-mail address for a man named Larry Holms (consultlarryholms@hotmail.com)is he real or is this a scam?


2006-12-26 13:06:35 -
I just received a check from OLGC Financial Group in the amount of $975.00. I was told to call them, which I did. They then told me to send $950.00 of the money to some address in Canada, call them back, and they would send me the remaining $9800.00 that I had won.
What should I do ?
