Scam 1 - Next of Kin Scam
If you receive a letter from a “Javier Matesanz” who claims to be employed with Souviron Economistas Y Abogados Spain, be cautious. It is probably a scam. In the letter, he may claim that he is searching for the next of kin of a business man who has died during the Tsunami catastrophe, leaving behind 10.8 M dollars.
He will probably state that during his search he came across yourself as you have the same surname, and although he knows you are not related, he is willing to split the 10.8 M dollars with you as he was unsuccessful in finding the next of kin. He urges you to respond whether or not you plan to accept his offer.
If you receive a similar letter, please be cautious and don’t hesitate to contact police as they may have further information.
