This is what the fake website looks like:
The scammers stole the identity of a real lawyer and they are contacting victims out of the blue with inheritance scams. The emails are sent from free email addresses, such as gmail or outlook. The family name of the bogus deceased relative is the same as the targeted victim's family name. After the victims reply to the initial message, the scammers direct the victims to the fake site, used in this case only to add more credibility to the fraud.
The fraudsters pretend to be in Australia or Europe, when in fact they are in Nigeria.
