  • Personally, I wouldn't. There are tons of emails like this going around, all asking for specific personal information, such as bank account, address etc., and giving out personal information is a huge risk. Its probably a scam. Even replying to the email, could be an issue. Ask yourself these questions (you've already asked one) 1. Do you know the person? 2. Do you know the lawyer? The company he works for? 3. Can you verify that he works for that company? 4. Is the bank a real bank? 5. Are they asking for personal information, such as bank account numbers etc.? Again, if it was me, I'd just ignore it. If you want to take the time, checking it out, do so. But get verification from a third party. Hope this was helpful.
  • Do you have a spam button on your computer? Then Click on it ASAP.
  • Although there is a possibility that this is for real ... "trust but verify" ... reply, telling them you seriously doubt their authenticity and ask them to send you a registered letter in the mail with their saliva used to seal the envelope ... tell them it will be DNA tested, only if there is a need to charge them with fraud ... if the letter actually arrives, you may celebrate your good fortune ... but if they ask you to send money so they can pay the fees to get at their money, and they will pay you back, just forward it all to both your local police and the interpol ... it is most likely a fraud scam.
  • For me, it looks very strongly like fraud. I would be extremely careful with becoming mails from people whom I don't know. It is very usual for some criminals to win your confidence by promising you some money, and after you trust them they ask you for some (before they gave you a comparable amount). They could also just be interested in some of your personal data. They could use that data for some other reason and also sell it to other people. I would not believe it without any kind of cross checking. However, if they give a phone number where you can call, mind that it could also be one of those numbers where you have to pay, say, $100 for 5 minutes... And they could also be stealing the identity of someone else. So you could check that the one person exist, but another person could ask for your money or data. Further information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fraud http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_fraud I suggest that you have a look at those pages to learn more about Fraud and internet criminality.
  • Checking other questions and answers on the subject of Pacific Trust Inc would make me distrust this completely. Also, how did this person get your e-mail address and why did they use e-mail for communication, rather than normal mail, where you would have had to have a genuine address to reply to. This is almost certainly a scam and I wouldn't even reply to the e-mail.
  • no, shes scamming
