How can one report email scams to a controlling body

My name is Mr Bernard Scott, a legal practitioner with SCOTT in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

I saw your contact and profile and decided that you could cooperate with me in this proposition.

I have a client by Name Mr. Williams Eilerd, who was deceased in November, 2005, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I am contacting you because you have the same surname as my deceased client and i felt that you could help me in the distribution of funding that were left in my deceased client's bank account. This funding is closed to be declared un-serviceable by the bank as there were no indicated next of kin or next of beneficiary of the funding in the bank account.

The total amount of cash in the bank account of my deceased client is US$ 12.5 Million ( Say, Twelve Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States dollars Only ),The bank had issued to me a notification to contact the next of kin of my deceased client for either to re-activate the bank account or to make claim of beneficiary, of the funding in the bank account, with a month surcharge of 6% to be deducted as an Escrow safe keeping fee of the bank account,so as to avoid the indefinite closure of the bank account. My proposition to you is to seek your consent, and to present your kind self as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my deceased client, since you have the same last name with him.

This means that the proceeds of his bank account would be paid to you as his next of kin or the legitimate beneficiary. When the proceeds in his bank account are paid to you, we would share the proceeds on a mutually agreed-upon percentage of 60% to me and 40% to your kind self. All the legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next-of-kin would be provided by me. The most important thing I would need is your honest cooperation in this proposition.This would be done under a legitimate arrangement that would protect you from any breach of the law.

If this business proposition offends your moral and ethical values,feel free to back out. Please contact me at once if you are interested reply through
my personal email (bscott_chambers@mail2malaysia.com).

Regards,
Barr. Bernard Scott M.ESQ,
Senior Advocate/Solicitor.:confused:

Hello and welcome.

There is not a lot you can do with this email, especially without the full email headers. It is a complete scam and the best you can do is post it here and then delete it. There is absolutely nothing real about it.

You can read more in a little missive I penned call "Why next of kin emails are always fake". (just click that blue link)

EASY MONEY IS NOT GOOD MONEY

I received the exact same e-mail from him and thank goodness I googled him and I then realized he could do the same with me. He even sent an exact same mail to my brother in law and Sister that lives in different areas , It goes to show...

I am just worried if he can steal anything from me

I told him to bugger off...

I told him to bugger off...
While satisfying, this is not a good idea. You are asking the scammer to send you more email. You have told him your email account is active. So the scammer will be happy to send you more scam mail, and he will.

BY SOME STROKE OF WISDOM I HAVE JUST DECIDED TO GOOGLE THIS BERNARD SCOTT CHARACTER AFTER RECEIVING THE EXACT E-MAIL AS THE OTHERS. HE CONTINUED WITH A SECOND E-MAIL DETAILING HIS SO-CALLED CREDENTIALS. WHAT A JERK!!

THIS IS WHAT IT READ:

First,let me introduce my self once more. I am Barrister Bernard Scott,I am a married father of four, aged 60. I am a senior advocate in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.

I got your contact in a research Company, Chamber of Commerce the last time i went to China for research of some one bearing the same last name with my late client, so i decided to give you a trial. And i must let you know that this transaction is 100% risk free now till every thing is completed by your name, though is not by force to work on a transaction like this because we are going to benefit mutually from this transaction.

As I told you in my proposal mail,I choose you because of your last name, which is exactly the same as my late client's name,which is similar to that of my late client. Is not that you are his relative, I only want to present you based on your last name. My client died in 2005 at the age of 43 and since then all the efforts of the Bank to locate his beneficiary failed, this is the reason they contacted me to trace his origin.

The fund will be transferred to your account by the holding bank here after a successful claim has been made.There is no risk to this transaction as we will process all the required documents by law for a beneficiary claim.There are no other living relative, actually my client was born by two migrant workers that came to Malaysia in 50's.

In this transaction we will go step by step, first with the legal documents to back up the claim and secondly, the monetary documents for the transfer. As I also made you to understand in my first mail, the bank asked me to contact his beneficiary/ his next of kin, as his Lawyer he did not leave any beneficiary name or next of kin with me, facing the situation, I decided to search for a good person of trust and one who bears the same last name as my late client, that will suite as his/her next of kin/bona fide beneficiary. For the legal ramifications, be rest assured on that.

This is my operational field, for I do know all the loop holes involved and will handle them with great professionalism.I will provide all the necessary legal documents that will back you up as the bona fide beneficiary of my late client, all I need from you is to cooperate with me and be honest in our agreement, If 60%/40%,60 for me and 40 for you, is OK by you.

I will send you a beneficiary affidavit form from the high court, which you will fill and resend to me, for me to swear under oath in high court of Malaysia that you are truly the bona fide beneficiary of my late client and from here we will commence. Fill free to ask any question you want to ask for better understanding of the transaction.

If I can count on your honesty, cooperation and confidence, reply positively for me to start the paper work.It is situated here in Malaysia.Honesty and Confidentiality of this transaction is very important.

Note: Here is my private number,+60192997927,you can reach me at any time of the day, except when i have a case to defend in court. I wait your urgent response with your phone numbers for more discussion.

Yours Sincerely,
Barrister Bernard Scott M.ESQ,
Senior Advocate/Solicitor.

Well, you could quit using your computer but that's pretty extreme. You could also get a new email account that you never give to anyone except your family and closest friends. Aside from that the only other option is to get him arrested (not much chance) and another scammer would just take his place anyway.

You can try marking his emails as spam. also, it is a good idea to stop all communications with him. Just mark his emails as spam or delete them.

Bernard Scott

I came across this site by chance.

I am Bernard Scott from Malaysia and I am a duly qualified lawyer, called to the Bar in 1996 as an Advocate & Solicitor and registered with the Bar Council Malaysia.

My name was used by this particular scam and targeted people in South Africa early this year between February till May 2008.

This matter is known by the Bar Council and police reports were duly lodged by the Bar Council and also by a couple who flew in from from South Africa at the Section 8 Police Station in Petaling Jaya about this scam. This young couple came to my office in Kota Damansara supposedly to collect their inheritance money. When they met me they were shocked and devastated as I was not the Bernard Scott which had been communicating with them via emails and telephone. They had paid out about USD55,000.00 to these scammers.

I have passed on to the Bar Council copies of emails of 8 other instances where my name and that of my firm was used in the scam. I state for the record that I am not connected with the dissemination of those emails. The mobile no. in those emails are not mine. All purported documentation to show proof of the Court documents and identification are false and no such documents actually exist in Malaysian law. There seems to be a name of a Chinese man in those emails and local bank accounts were given for monies to be deposited as payment of processing or legal fees.

So please beware and be guided accordingly.

You may verify with the Secretary of the Bar Council, Mr. Lim Chee Wee. located at Nos. 13.15 &17, Lebuh Pasar Besar, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, of my particulars and about this scam.

Sincerely,

Bernard Scott
