"Barrister Marcus Hopkin" tells me he is a solicitor.  I think he'd better go back to law school.  I think lesson one would probably tell him the difference between a barrister and a solicitor (look it up on the internet if your country doesn't use the English/Welsh law system).

As a colleague of mine lost her sister and brother in law in the London bombings, I find this scam offensive - as are all scams which quote real disasters to add an air of fake authenticity.

This lowlife, scum bag of a scammer (apologies for language here folks) has no intention of sending you money.  He is just hoping you will fall for his scam and start sending him money.  Ignore him.

Good Day I am Barrister Marcus Hopkin & Co Solicitors( who wish to present you as next of kin to my Client (PHILIP HOMES) who died on 7 July 2005 London bombings leaving (Eleven Million Pounds) in a Bank here in Europe and no next of kin to inherit the fund till now.Confirm this transaction at the BBC News website:( ) as I await your update for further details. Regards Barrister Marcus Hopkin CEO-Barrister Marcus Hopkin & Co Solicitors LONDON.

I am hoping

This scammer tells me the usual story:
1) they think "this letter may come to you as a surprise".  Wrong - I get scam letters every day.  They don't surprise me
2) they tell me the old, old tale of parents who died in horrible circumstances leaving millions of dollars

You get the idea, I'm sure.  "Miss Mgboli" is none of the things she claims.  She's a scammer - who is hoping you will fall for her story and start sending her money when she demands fees.

Just ignore her.

Dear Guardian,

    Good day to you over there, please permit me to inform you of my desire to go into this relationship with you. Though this letter may come to you as surprise, since you don't know me personally before, but please kindly open your mind to help me and treat me like your own daughter and family. It is by the special grace of God that I found your contact recently, because it is going to be very difficult for me to find a sincere person to entrust on this urgent request transaction and to help me out of my affliction today.  I am Miss. THERESA MGBOLI, the only daughter of late Mr. And Mrs. FRANCIS MGBOLI. My father was a Diamond merchant in most countries of Southern Africa and my home country Angola where he also was involved in sales of blood diamond for rebel soldiers who used the money for the purchasing of ammunitions during the war crisis in my country that lasted for 27 years. My mother died when I was a baby as i was been delivered and since then my father took me so special.
Before the death of my f

However that I should seek for a foreign partner in a overseas/foreign country where I will transfer this money and use it for investment purpose such as real estate management, hotel management or property buying. I am in sincere desire need of your humble assistance in this regards presently. Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded.

Now permit me to ask these few questions:-

(1)Can you help me for the retrievement of this fund on my behalf from the security custody and to help me to provide a bank account in which this fund would be transferred into in your country?
(2)Can you stand as my guardian since I am only 20 years old?
(3)Can you make an arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my Education and to secure a resident permit in your country?
(4) Can you honestly take me as your own and help me? 
(5) Can I completely trust you?
(6) What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the money is in your account?

Please, consider this and get back to me as soon as possible e-mail:, so that i can forward the documents to you which are now in my possession, only after we have agreed on the conditions for your assistance. My life was not safe in Angola so decided to relocate to the said country which my father told me the consignment was been deposited and held for safe keeping. I need to be out of here as soon as possible because now that my father is dead and with me only as a female child, my uncles and other surviving relatives are seeking to kill me so that they can have all my fathers' properties. I really don't want to struggle anything with them in terms of properties but my presence will still be disturbing them. Thank God they are not aware of this fund in the security company. I am waiting for your urgent reply with your contact phone number, and then i can also give you the contact of the security company for you to contact them on my behalf as my guardian an
d the receiver of the con

I am hoping to hear from you, best regards and I remain yours respectful one.
