South Africa inheritance Scam
An opera in 4 acts, 3 of them unnatural. Enjoy the show for free. The victim paid a lot of money for these fake documents.
Scammer: Maxwell Ndlovu, Barrrister, (possibly our old friend Michael Onyia)
Franklin or Frankline Sullivan, deceased (Frankline? Odd name for a guy)
Christian Eich, Business partner
E.C. Beno, Probate Register
And featuring, a victim.
The story began with an exchange of emails in which the victim is to be presented as the next of kin for Franklin Sullivan. Was this victim greedy? No. was this victim silly? No. This victim got caught up in something which he was not mentally prepared for and once in, couldn't get out. It often happens, and you'd be suprised who it could happen to.
It begins with the lawyer, Ndlovu making an application letter to the bank:
This is followed by the sworn statement of facts for the court which sets out the victim as a "distant cousin" (very distant) of Franklin Sullivan.
Then the lucky day: the court grants probate:
And finally comes the letter of administration, and the victim is just waiting for that money to roll in, but....
....well, you can guess that in this opera there is no happy ending for the victim, but the scammer probably enjoyed all the money the victim sent. This is what we are about. We want to stop this before it happens again. We want to stop it before it happens to you or someone you know.
