I was recently contacted by a man named Patrick Owen who claimed to be a lawyer.  He said that someone in my family died and I was the only surviving next of kin.  I like a fool only saw the fact that I would get an inheiritance and I bought into it.  But then I got to thinking about it.  This guy was a Goodwill.  And the Goodwill family is HUGE!!!  I myself have 4 aunts and uncles, my parents, 8 cousins, and a brother, and thats just off the top of my head.  So I researched this Michael H. Goodwill and found that there is no such person who has died recently.  So that set off all my alarms.  Then I looked up this Patrick Owen and found your website.   After looking over your site, I was so glad I found it.  You have saved me a ton of money and possibly my life.  We were going to meet for me to sign the papers and I have no idea what I was thinking when I agreed to that.   So thank you very much.  I really appreciate you posting that and I hope it will keep many more naive people from being scammed.  I would really love for you to post my story.  If you are interested, I will forward all the emails I recieved.  I saved them all.  Thank you so much.

. Here is Katrinas story:  
Patrick Dear,

I know you may receive this email in an odd manner as you have not
received any prior communication or contact from me before now. But be
that as it may, I would like to first introduce myself in details. I
am Barrister Patrick Owen of Legal Services Support Limited, London
United Kingdom. I was the Personal Attorney to late Mr. Michael, an
American who lived several years in London before relocating to USA.
He died in the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center as his office was
located in the building.

When he was in London, he executed a contract with the Shell British
Petroleum and he deposited the contract amount he received in a
Canadian based Bank. Being his personal Attorney, he handed the entire
transaction documents over to me for legal advice and safe keeping.
This fund is currently in the deposit account at the bank where Mr.
Michael deposited it.

I have processed this fund for release but the bank insists that the
fund will only be released to the NEXT OF KIN to late Mr. Michael.
Before his untimely death, my client laid much emphasis on donating
certain percentage of his total wealth to Charity Organizations, the
Motherless Babies Home and missionaries. My legal obligation to this
effect has made me to put much effort to locate his immediate or
extended families which could not yield anything as there is no trace
to their contact address or location. Being that you have the ?same
surname? with my late client, I will like to present you to the bank
as his next of kin to enable the bank process and release the fund to
us. I have the entire documents to back up the claim legally as I will
file in your name as the next of kin entitled to claim the fund.

All I require from you is your cooperation and assurance that you will
not disappoint me as soon as this money is released to us through you
as the next of kin.

To enable us successfully claim this fund, forward your personal
details to me. This will enable me file in your name with your
personal details as the next of kin to claim the fund. Forward the
following details to me;
a. Your name
b. Your telephone and fax numbers
c. Your contact address
d. Your Age
e. Your Occupation

I will furnish you with more details about this fund as soon as I hear
from you.

Call me on my direct telephone number for more explanation; + 44 207 019 7246

Regards,

Patrick Owen

Dear Katrina Goodwill,

I have received your email. Actually I got your contact when I visited Walhalla in search of my late client’s family as I was directed that they stayed in Florida but I could not trace them, My late client's name is Michael H. Goodwill. As an attorney, I will not do anything that will lead us into any shit or trouble. I have the entire details that will enable us successfully claim the fund under the ambits of the law. Therefore you don’t have to be jittery or afraid about this while because the requirements to get the fund released to us are all available.

I have already processed the fund to the point of release but the bank insists that they will only release the fund to a credible next of kin based on the documents which I, as the personal attorney to the deceased will submit on behalf of the next of kin. This I will do by obtaining the Affidavit of Claim documents from the law court here in United Kingdom and also a obtain a submit a copy of the WILL DOCUMENT which will pronounce you as the next of kin entitled to claim and receive the fund.

I therefore urge you to be confident as I am because we have got all it takes to get the fund. I need your personal details to enable me obtain the required documents as above. Forward your details as follows;
Your name
Your telephone and fax numbers
Your contact address
Your Age
Your Occupation

All I require from you is your cooperation and a full assurance that you will not disappoint as soon as the fund is released to you because I would not like to embark on a transaction that I will be cheated out at the end.

I give you my assurance; “MY WORDS ARE MY BONDS”.I will give you a copy of my ID and my Chambers address and webpage as we move ahead.

Dear Katrina Goodwill,

I have applied for the documents at the appropriate departments here in London . The documents will be issued today. As soon as I get the documents, I will forward a claim application to the bank in Canada in your name to enable them start the process of getting the fund release to us. The principal amount deposited was USD$5.4 Million but I know it must have yielded some interest by now as accrued interest to the fund.

I will get back to you as soon as I obtain the documents. Meanwhile respond urgently and re-assure me of your total cooperation.

Call me on; + 44 207 019 7246 for more discussion.

Dear Katrina Goodwill,

I was able to obtain the documents as I earlier informed you though not really easy as I had to pay for the issuance fees of the documents. These documents are requested by the bank to enable them officially process the release and transfer of the fund to you via the bank’s online banking systems which is the fasted way of getting the fund released and transafer to your account to enable us access to the fund.

Meanwhile I have faxed copies of the documents and an application for the release of the fund to the bank and they have acknowledged the receipt of the documents and the claim application which I forwarded in your name.

I am now relying on you as I have done my part as the personal attorney to the depositor of the fund. As an attorney, I have submitted and faxed the entire required legal documents which the bank demanded to release the fund to the next of kin. Therefore do not do anything that will make the bank cancel this fund as I backed the claim up legally. The bank will contact you to inform you about the process of releasing the fund to you as the next of kin to the depositor of the fund. As soon as the bank contacts you, kindly call me urgently to enable me inform you on what to respond to the bank to avoid mistake from you.

Please give me your total assurance as we enter into the main process of getting the fund released to you as the next of kin. Remember I presented you to the bank so that the fund will be released to you. You have to protect my interest in this transaction and do not disappoint me based on the trust and confidence I have in you. I do not want to be cheated out of the fund. My primary concern is to ensure that part of the fund goes to the Charity and Motherless Babies Home as my late client has stipulated before his untimely death.

Find attached a copy of my International Passport ID. The copies of the documents I obtained today are very heavy to attach. Give me your fax number to enable me fax copies of the documents to you. Please forward a copy of your ID to me urgently as we are getting into the main business of getting the fund released to you. This will boost my confidence and faith in you to receive the fund. Forward a copy of your ID to me as soon as possible.

Respond urgently to re-assure me of your cooperation and understanding to see us through successfully. Inform me as soon as the bank contacts you.

Dear Katrina Goodwill,

HAS THE BANK SET UP THE ACCOUNT IN YOUR NAME? I am aware of the legal responsibilities saddled on my shoulders in ensuring that this fund is successfully claimed. In view of this responsibility, I am legally ready to see us through successfully. It is my legal responsibility to direct you on the way forward being that I have the entire facts about the fund and my late client. My concern now is your ability to keep this fund safe pending when we will be able to disburse the fund to our private accounts and also to charity. I am making travel arrangements to come to United States to meet with you. As soon as I get my visa to come to the US , I will inform you. This is to enable us find any viable Charity Home/Motherless Babies home where we will donate part of the fund. We have to do this as a mark of respect to my late client and also as my legal responsibility as his personal attorney. This will also declare our sharing formula of the fund and we will know what we stand to get as our individual share per person.

No business transaction will ever succeed without trust and trust comes by confidence in what you believe in. In view of all these, I would like us to get into a legal agreement. I will prepare the agreement with my Chamber’s Letter Headed Paper, I will sign and fax or forward a copy to you and you will also sign and fax or forward a copy back to me. This will serve as an agreement/memorandum of understanding between us. This will enable us know our direction based on this transaction because I want us to be focused in this transaction to avoid any form of disagreement at the end based on the sharing formula.

The bank will be happy to seize or confiscate the fund so that they will convert the fund to bank’s use. Therefore ensure that you strictly adhere to the bank’s directives to enable them release the fund accordingly. This is to avoid any mistake that will make the bank to seize the fund or cancel the payment. This transaction is between you and I, no other person should know about this because I would not appreciate any publicity about this fund or the transaction.

Attached is a copy of my International Passport ID for your confirmation and perusal.

Let me know your view concerning the agreement/memorandum of understand.I will appreciate you to call me; + 44 207 019 7246

Dear Katrina Goodwill,

I have received your email and I quite appreciate your concern.

Meanwhile I will issue you with a Power of Attorney Letter declaring you as the next of kin entitled to claim and receive the fund while you will issue me with a Promissory Note promising to keep the fund very safe pending my arrival in the United States to enable us disburse the fund accordingly. This is to boost my morale concerning the transaction. As an Attorney, I have to be very careful in everything I do. I have to use you to enable us claim the fund to avoid the bank from confiscating the fund due to lack of a credible next of kin to claim the fund. This is what most international banks normallyt such as the Swiss Bank. Once a client dies, they make things very difficult for people to claim the fund so that after a long period od time, they will confiscate the fund to their use.

I have forwarded every required legal documents to the bank and the bank is waiting to hear from you. They may also contact you as I will send them a reminder based on the claim application I presented to them in your name.

I have been trying your telephone number without any luck of speaking with you. Please call me on; + 44 207 019 7246

Subject: Dear Katrina Goodwill - Respond Urgently

Dear Katrina Goodwill,

Have you contacted the bank? You should not delay about this as time of great essence now that the fund is being processed for release. Find the legal claim documents as attached. Actually I wanted to keep these documents intact pending our meeting in United States as soon as the fund is released. These documents are classified documents and you should not let any one get hold of them because any one that gets these documents can easily divert and claim the fund without our notice. This is the main reason why I do not want to release these documents to you to avoid any loss. I would have giving you a copy of the will documents but that is always restricted till the fund is released to us. It cost me fortune to get these documents because of their sensitive nature. I had to close most of bank accounts to obtain these documents from its original statue which has allowed the bank to take you as the next of kin. My personality is at stake should we allow the bank to dictate this. This is the reason why I want us to speedily conclude this so that we do not stand any risk of loosing the fund. The bank may want to start a kind of re-verification exercise but once the fund is released to us that seals it and marks the successful claim of the fund. This is the reason I want us to conclude as soon as possible. As an Attorney, I do not involve myself in things that could tarnish or destroy my personality as a lawyer. Therefore I am always very careful about what ever I do to avoid doing things contrary to the laws of the land. As an Attorney I am a law enforcement agent and therefore I cannot get myself involved in anything bad.

Katrina had realized that it was a scam. She did nor send any money, and she stopped all further contact with the scammers.

The documents were fake and the false bank had copied the website from a real bank.
