NOTIFICATION OF BEQUEST


On behalf of the Trustees and Executor of the estate of
Late Engr. Horst Schroeder, I once again try to notify you
as my earlier letter returned undelivered. I hereby attempt
to reach you again by this same email address on the WILL.

I wish to notify you that late Engr. Horst Schroeder made you
a beneficiary to his WILL.
He left the sum of seven million five hundred thousand
United States Dollars ($7,500.000.00 USD) to you
in the codicil and last testament to his WILL.

This may sound strange and unbelievable to you,
but it is real and true. Being a widely travelled man, he must
have been in contact with you in the past or simply you were
recommended to him by one of his numerous friends abroad who
wished you good.

Engr. Horst Schroeder until his death was a member of the
Helicopter Society and the Institute of Electronic & Electrical
Engineers. He had a very good heart and was a philantropist.
His great philanthropy earned him numerous awards during his life time.

Late Engr Horst Schroeder died on the 12th day of March, 2004
at the age of 80 years, and his WILL is now ready for execution.
According to him this money is to support your humanitarian
activities and to help the poor and the needy in our society.

Please if I reach you this time as I am hopeful, endeavor to get
back to me as soon as possible to enable me conclude my job.
I hope to hear from you in no distant time through the email
address below.

i was scammed by a man claiming to be from the british tobbacco co. in conjunction with coca cola saying i won an international lottery. you either come to london or pay a courier fee i paid the fee. then they told me because the check was so large that the US would not let it in due to terriost. they told me that customs interceppeted it that i had to pay a fee for anti terriost papers of 930.00 i did not but he still tried to scam me. i called homeland security and the state police.


2006-12-05 15:25:12 -
I have just recieved a notice that I had won a consolation prize from powerball international lottery.I can now see it was a scam


2006-12-05 08:16:48 -
I recieved a check in the mail, made out to me, my bank indicated was legite tender, in the amount of $2,993.92. Please, tell me ANYTHING about this situation.


2006-12-05 04:03:30 -
I just received a letter in the mail about a lottery British Lotto commission and I wanted to know if this is a spam and what should I do?


2006-12-04 06:43:14 -
These folks sent me an e-mail, saying that I'm one of ten winners; chosen from an e-mail address contest.
What is the real deal with this?


2006-12-03 13:34:54 -
I've recieved a letter informing me that I am a winner of the INTERNATIONAL LOTTERY INCORPORATION.
I don't remember entering such a lottery nor have I ever heard of it, this sounded to good to be true.
They also sent me a check for $3,900.00 and stated it was for the perpose of a payment of 98% of the NON-
RESIDENT GOVERNMENT SERVICE TAX (GST).and that it would help a winner to process any winnings without much delay, it would need to be sent through WESTERN UNION or MONEY GRAM
After some research I believe this to be a Scam I will not be cashing this check or sending these crooks anything,although I'm really tempted to call the phone number and give them a piece of my mind! I hope someday they get a long prison sentence.


2006-12-03 11:26:18 -
