Here is an email from Mr Lee Thomas and the 15 million dollar scam that he is trying to push on you. Remember, it’s a scam, don’t respond!

I (Mr. Lee Thomas) know that this mail will come to you as a surprise, Please accept the content in good faith. I do not intend to cause any grief to you and your family. The reason for sending this mail is very fundamental to the doctrine of human privileges and right. My name is Barrister Lee Thomas a legal practitioner based in London and the personal Attorney to late Mr. Adams , a national of your country who died along with his wife and two sons who died in the Tube explosion between King’s Cross-and Russell Square in London.

My client was a successful and is an accomplished family man, who made enough fortune before his untimely death. Since then I had made several Inquiries through your Embassy to locate any of my clients extended relative but this exercise has proved unsuccessful. After several unsuccessful attempts, I (Mr. Lee Thomas) decided to trace his relatives through the Internet, to locate any member of his family, not much progress was recorded. My late client was an influential wealthy businessman, an oil magnet here in London and he left behind a deposit of fifteen Million United State Dollars only $15,000,000.00 (USD) in his domiciliary bank account in a commercial bank here in London.

After the death of my client his bankers contacted me, as his Attorney to provide his next of kin who should inherit his funds. The board of directors of his bank adopted a resolution and I (Mr. Lee Thomas) was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this money within 28 Working days or forfeit the money to the bank as an abandoned property. The bankers had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 1996 to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period given to me.

Fortunately, I came across your name, to my greatest astonishment, I discovered that you bear the same surname with my late client and coincidentally, you are national of the same country. Being convinced that you may be related with my late client or that you might provide clue to my search, I therefore, decided to contact with these facts before me, because of the similarities. By virtue of my closeness to the deceased and his immediate family, I (Mr. Lee Thomas) am very much aware of my client financial standing and the bank account he operates.

I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to present you as the next of kin of my deceased client, so that you can be paid the funds left in his bank account. I therefore seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin to the Deceased since you are at an advantage, bearing the same surname and equally from the same country that the proceeds of this Bank Account valued at $15,000,000.00 (USD) can be paid to you. We shall both share the funds. 40% for me and 55% to you, while 5% should be for Expenses or your Government may require as Tax. I shall assemble all the necessary Legal Documents that will be used to back up our claim. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law.

Note: if this fund is not claimed it will be sent to the website below for anybody to claim or for the government.

Your swift response is anticipated.

    I got one of these e-mails. This is the e-mail I received:

    Helo’ I am Barrister Lee Thomas a legal practitioner based in London i got your contact from the web directory for a deal..if interested, contact me with this email for details. (

    Please ensure you regularly check your ‘Junk Folder’ as occasionally, the security settings on some accounts sends these e-mails to junk or spam folders.I greet,Lee Thomas.

    What a load of junk. I don’t live in the UK for one, and why on earth would some English barrister be interested in suddenly giving me “a deal”. Who ever wrote this rubbish is such an idiot. As for the spelling of hello – what can one say!!

    An unbelievably stupid scammer who doesn’t seem to know how barristers write. They don’t refer to themselves as “Barrister” or “Mr” – along with the previously mentioned faults.

    My guess is that nobody falls for it. When will these fraudsters be dealt with?
    It needs some concerted international action.

  7. Gert Frederiksen says:

    I have sent this to our “friend”

    I think you are someone who needs to be locked up, and the key thrown to hell, since you have no problem stealing poor peoples money, I have never heard of an UK lawyer who uses an, yahoo mail, and one from Hongkong????+….begone you phisher…

    And next time, do your homework properly…..criminal…

    With the deepest disrespect for scammers, you slows the internet down……

    buen dia a todos pero me gustaria saber si este correo es una estafa por lo visto no se mensiona el nombre de dicho magnate , acaso impulsan a dar la clave de alguna cuenta?’ como es la estafa?? me podrias responder .


  9. Jumper says:

    Anyone claiming to be a barrister should be able to spell – or at least use a spell-checker. I’m sure someone with education would know the difference between “magnet” and “magnate”. Anyone who gets pinched by something as transparent as this deserves it.
