I was recently contacted by a "lawyer" from Benin. When I accepted, he sent me the typical Internet Scam come on that his client with my same family name died without heirs and a multi million dollar unclaimed fortune that he wants to split with me it I'll participate in the fraud.


I spent two years collecting Internet Scams. This is a very, very common one.
