Some rich and highly influential Saudi businessmen wants to steal your contract/inheritance funds. I believe it is not actually his fault because some officials told him you are dead, so he believed the documents/evidence that presented to him and he is now pushing the process as your heir (next-of-kin) with a wrong belief. I am revealing this to you because I think it is not right what they are doing to you, and you should not be oppressed and intimidated by the supper rich and the highly connected.
I will give you more details upon your response; that is if you will permit me to direct you on how best to approach this situation.
Fortunately, this hijack has now turned to favor you because you are likely not going to pay any more fees as the imposter has already paid all the processing charges and is now awaiting Foreign Exchange approval for the fund release which is now being delayed due to National revenue drop caused by the dwindling Crude oil prize which is the major source of the country’s revenue. Upon your response I will give you the official website and links to the Saudi Billionaire so you can contact him directly and tell him the truth that you are not dead. I assume he should be a true Muslim, and I strongly believe that he will hands off your claim once he realizes that you are not dead because the Muslim faith detests earning money through fraud, cheating and subjugating of the poor.
Email messages in various formats doing rounds online since many years come to alert the recipient about a secret plot to steal his Contract/Inheritance Funds from an official Settlement/Payment Platform. They say that a group of officials are working with a highly influential Saudi businessman to steal your inheritance funds – by trying to convince the concerned settlement officials that you (email recipient) are dead. It is also said that the person sending you the email is concerned about you not losing the inheritance funds and that he wants you to respond to him and act further to save the money from being stolen. No, the claims are not facts.
The aforementioned email messages are actually sent out and controlled by scammers whose sole intention is to get replies from the recipients. Once the user gets to believe in the story they fabricate, the scammers get into a dialog and grab personal information from the user that can be misused. In some cases the scammers also steal money from the users by making false claims like they need to pay some kind of charges to release their inheritance funds. Note that “inheritance funds” is a common term used by online scammers. So people are advised to discard these fraudulent emails; do not reply with any personal information. And unless you trust the sender, do not click any links that come within the emails.
