Barrister Abdullah B.Sidek email bank scam

Update: friendly personal message to Abdullah: Abdul, if I were you I would consider a career change.

This is a very common advance fee scam. Just look how many different addresses and "identifications" he uses...
It was funny though because he told me the person died in Bali terrorist bombings and send me a photo of the monument erected with their names. However the name he mentioned was not on the monument! LOL HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
It is my humble opinion that they think we are more stupid than they are...

PS here is a better photo of the same monument that I found online!

God bless internet...

after I send an email showing my interest to the scam


Thanks for your prompt response to my e-mail. Please go through this
e-mail with great attention as that will bring closer the picture of what
assistance I need from you. I got your contact from a research company
based in china, which made it easy for me to come about you. I have
labored immensely to get someone with the same last name who will help me
in this regard.

Firstly, I want you to comprehend that you were contacted just for the
fact that you have the same last, surname as my late client, not that you
are necessarily related to him. i will also like to clearly make you
understand, that legally, you have nothing to worry about, as far as this
inheritance claim is concerned. As a barrister and custodian of law with
so many years of experience, I make bold to say with full authority, that
this business is totally legal, and safe.

I was the deceased client’s attorney. This legally, means that I am
mandated to carry out any business dealings on his behalf, as if he was
present. I was his attorney for several years, until his death. I was his
closest confidant.

My deceased client had no next of kin to inherit the mentioned amount. He
is originally from Australia going by the information he provided to me.
He sojourned into my country in the late 90's and had vast business
interests though his major concern was importation. based on the brief he
gave me, he disassociated himself from his people over some family
differences and lost contact with them long ago before coming to live and
invest in my country Malaysia where he lived until he died in 2002, he
never contacted his relatives while he lived here neither did they know
where and how he ended up. Sequel to that, I am assuring you that nobody
will come up to put claims to this fund anytime any day.

Being his legal assistance when he was alive, I am the only person who can
confirm to the bank the claim of any next of kin, and also advice the bank
to effect payment to such a beneficiary. I want you to put up a claim as
the next of kin to the deceased when authorized to do so, and when the
money gets into your account. we will share the found on mutual benefits
(60% - 40%). 60% for me while 40% for you. All expenses will be deducted
before we share the fund on agreed percentage

If you agree with the term, then this is how we are going to progress with
this transaction:

(a) .I will provide you with some documents for the claim as we proceed.

(b). When the bank receives your claims application; they will immediately
draw my attention to it, notifying me that some one has put up a claim as
the next of kin to the deceased. I will be asked by the bank to verify the
authenticity of the said claim, and recommend to them what action they
should take.

(c). The bank on the receipt of my confirmation will now get in touch with
you, asking that you present them with your banking coordinates, so that
they can transfer the money into your nominated account. When the bank
receives your banking information, they will release the money into your
nominated account.

(d). You are to scan and send an identification card such as your
international passport or driving license. This is to enable me know if
you have the capability to contract.

The above is a very concise explanation of the entire process of this
transaction. This mentioned process, will only take some banking days to

Now, I will only do this business with you, on the condition that you will
promise to be absolutely honest with me, and that you will respect the
confidentiality of this business transaction, and keep it as such. I will
provide you with every necessary prove as and when do as I need to protect
my interest in this transaction.

Finally, I need to have your full name, your contact address your private
phone number for easy communication.

I am much glad to get your responds. I am glad that I have found someone
who will assist me in putting up the claim. Like I told you earlier, this
transaction is quite simple and has no form of adverse legal implication.
All you need now is to proceed with the process of making the claim. We
need to have a legal binding (an agreement) which will govern us in the
course of this transaction. Attach are my full identities. I will like to
have yours to enable me have a good picture of you as well.

The agreement I am going to send to you will guild us till we accomplish
the process of the claim.

I need your contact address to enable me prepare the agreement of this
transaction. Also, I need the information requested from you on my
previous email. Please Mr.SURNAME , I will be glad if we finalize this
transaction within a short frame of time as the rate of our progress
depends on how fast you are complying.

Attach are my identities once again.
I hope this will aid in immensely in bringing us close and as well help in
accomplishing this transaction as soon as possible.

Have a nice day.
Barrister Abdullah B.Sidek

    There has already been a report filed in the Malaysian cyber police department. But go ahead and use the info on this blog for any legal purposes against the scammer.
    I am not sure what details you need, cause all the details I know, are on this blog.
