Received a type-written letter from Mrs. Francisca Solar, the administrative manager at a Vault of a Financial & Security Institute in Madrid. Abandoned sum of 26.7 m US dollars in their safety deposit vault belongs to a possible relative of mine with same last name who died on 9th October 2021. If I agree to accept and cooperate, 50% of this money will be for me, 40% for Mrs. Solar and 10% to any acceptable charity in Spain of my country. Contact via fa or phone immediate with Mrs. Solar.

Type of a scam Other

I received this letter from Barcelona stating that there was 26.7m in US dollars at a bank that I was entitled to since I was next of kin. I had to fill out an application and I would only get 40% of the money 50% goes to the bank and 10% goes to charity. I would have to keep this confidential and I could not discuss with anybody.

Type of a scam Nigerian/Foreign Money Exchange

My mom received this letter in the mail. She immediately showed the letter to me and asked if i thought it was a scam or not. Of course after reading the first two lines it was obviously a scam. This is the second time my mom has been scammed in as many months. The first time was a fake phone call from her grandson needing money to help a friend for a marijuana charge they were both involved in. It is so sad there are people out there that prey on senior citizens trying to rob them of their life savings. Most of the scams seem to play on their emotional side, a grandchild in distress, a lost loved one’s unclaimed inheritance, or the financial legal fees they may encounter if they don’t immediately pay an IRS tax debt. All of which are untrue but these scammers seem to work the emotional side our seniors to cough up money. Unfortunately there are many that do pay out money thinking they are helping a loved one or themselves. Please tell your parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles and anyone else you know that scammers are out there. Tell them never give out their bank account numbers and Social Security numbers to ANYONE, not over the phone, not in an email and not by postal service…never. The more we make our loved ones aware of the scams the less likely they will happen.
