Yours Faithfully,

Mr. Robert Brown,
Remittance Director.
Tel:  +447045716565
Email: [email protected]

This “ID” was attached as “proof” of their identity.

When I didn’t respond to their response, it was forwarded again 2 days later. Then the next day another email came, this one with a more urgent subject of “YOU SHOULD ACKNOWLEDGE THE RECEIPT OF THIS MAIL.” A graphic was also attached, which was supposedly of Dr. Robert Brown “Remittance Manager” supposedly proving the identity of the sender. As a graphic artist for years, I can tell you that this “ID” is amateur at best. Was this created in CorelDraw version 2.0? I could have done better in 1994.

Let’s also not forget the broken English in the email itself.

If you’re looking into an inheritance from Barclays or any other such windfall, don’t fall for it. These scammers send out millions of these emails a day, hoping to land just one fish. Don’t be that fish.

By the way, I decided to respond with a rambling, unintelligible message to see what they say. My response was:

OK well I doesn’t know about sending my ID and bank info over the email. I thinks I need more proof as to your legitimacy for the incongruent flow of information as to which I’d be happy to abide on the acquainted hour pertaining to such dissemination.

Please advise as to the possible non-compliance as to which there may or may not be an issue at hand, before or after recipient of this here communication of the electronic method.

One can only guess how they’ll handle this request. Stay tuned.

Bottom Line

Beware of an inheritance scam email claiming to come from Barclay’s Bank of London.
