I suspected An SMS I received as a scam so I emailed them saying they got the wrong person, and received a similar response as above. I thought I'd drop it here to make people aware.

BELT LLP
30 SHOOTERS HILL ROAD
LONDON SE3 7BD
UNITED KINGDOM
TEL: +44 (0) 203 769 1850

Dear xxx ,


Thank you for your prompt response to my SMS. I would like you to kindly read my introductory e-mail with patience. I am Attorney Hector Belt, the legal assistant to late Dr. Kurt xxx, hereinafter referred to as 'My Client', a South African who died 3 years ago. I got your contact details after an exhaustive search online for my client's relatives in order to retrieve the £4 Million that he deposited with Lloyds Bank, UK before his untimely death.


I approach you on a personal conviction of trust, to partner with me in receiving the money. As his attorney, I have all key documents relating to the deposit and his death. The Bank has asked me to present his relatives to claim the funds within 30 days or forfeit it permanently in line with the laws of United Kingdom. My wish is for this money to be invested in South Africa in areas that will create jobs and be of benefit to the ordinary citizens. It could also be used for live-changing charity works and our joint effort will ensure that. By this letter, I request your consent to present you to the Lloyds Bank as a close relation of my client, so that the funds can be transferred directly to you. Once you receive the funds, you will use 40% of it for any charitable cause that you like, then keep 40% to yourself and the remaining 20% will be transferred to me. I will invest my share in a profitable venture in your country using your guidance.

This claim is straightforward and will be carried out under proper directives that will protect you from breaking any laws. I kindly request you to keep details of my proposal confidential because of its nature for total success. Further information about the process and documents will be provided to you upon  your reply. You may visit our website above to learn more about our Law firm.

Best regards,
Attorney Hector Belt

Deceased relative scam

Unread postby Nivra » Tue Jun 09, 2020 8:52 pm

Hi I was contacted 3 months ago from a alleged “Lucas Grant” from Lloyds bank in connection with a deceased relative whom I’ve never met or known of who has levt me a massive amount of money. After seeing this I contacted this “Lucas Grant” via email and explained he had the wrong person, but stupidly proceeded with his questions and multiple forms he sent. Note: i gave him nothing more than my email and did not complete any documentation.
He sent me a death certificate of “Rhoi” and even the needed pappers to claim the money needles to say this was done professional and would hardly be seen as a scam. Today he sent me a document to claim the money and luckily before doing the papper work i did further investigation and saw all these posts about this being a scam. I also read that the fake Lloyds webpage was taken off but after reading the news i went back to his emails and proceeded into the site again and saw it was still active?

This scam is really dangerous because of the level of professionalism put into it and many people may fall victim to it.
Is there anything that someone can do to stop this?

Here is one of the emails he sent me:

GRANT LLP
420 COTTON EXCHANGE BUILDING

Report from a victim:
I found similar documents when I searched shouthwark council death
certificate. I clicked on a link and it took me to scam survivors where
people posted exactly the sameness story but from Berge LLP instead of
church law attorneys. The photo is looks like the same person and the
emails are almost identicle as are the documents. The website is also
exactly the same it’s only the name they changed. The subject of the email
was Berge LLP - bergellp.uk

Dear xxx,

It is my pleasure.

Based on your circumstance you just explained now, I wish to assure you
that I will work twice harder to make sure everything goes smoothly as soon
as possible, all you just have to do is to make sure you follow all my
directives and do exactly as I ask you to do, please.

I would like to thank you once more for writing to me concerning my
proposal to you. I wish to explain further the steps involved in this
process and assure you that the funds will be transferred to you within 12
days provided you follow my guidelines. The fund is deposited with Lloyds
Bank Plc. for over 9 years. All I need from you is sincere cooperation and
we will accomplish this in no time.

The first step now is for me to obtain the Letter of Administration from
Her Majesty's Crown Court here in England. A Letter of Administration is a
legal document that is issued by the Courts to prove who has the legal
authority to deal with the Estate of the person that has passed away
without a Will. Once I obtain it, I will send it to you alongside an
application letter for inheritance claim which you will have to print, sign
and send to the Head of Operations of Lloyds Bank so that they can start
the fund release process. Upon their receipt of the application letter,
they will contact you to ascertain your claims of relationship to the
deceased and all you need to do is forward their correspondence to me so
that I can take care of it. I will provide all the requested information.
The bank will then go through the submitted details and once they confirm
them to be accurate, and approval will be given for the funds to be
released to you.

I hope we have established a memorandum of understanding binding this
transaction as per the share ratio for the funds as it will be
disheartening if you default. Since this is a transaction of mutual
benefit, our mutual understanding, cooperation, and effort are required to
ensure it's realization. I also need you to check your e-mails regularly as
this will help us to complete the transaction in a timely manner. If you
have any questions regarding the process, you can ask me directly but I do
wish to assure you that everything will run smoothly.

Note: I obtained a copy of the Certificate of Death for the purpose of this
claim and have attached it to this e-mail alongside the proof of fund
deposit and work identity card for your perusal. I will now wait for your
response in order to proceed.


Best regards,
Attorney Ethan Church

Dear xxx

I have received the Bank's letter and must say that I am extremely
delighted to know that they have approved the fund's release. This is the
moment that I have always prayed for and I am glad the claim has gone from
uncertainty to confirmation. The Bank attached a funds transfer application
form which you need to complete and return to them as soon as possible. The
SWIFT code can be obtained by the Lloyds Bank online and the IBAN is not
applicable to you so just leave it.

The Bank needs a copy of the Awarding Certificate of Inheritance Claim from
Her Majesty's Crown Court and this document will be obtained by us paying
0.2% of the inheritance sum (0.2% of £950,000.00) = £4,250.00
(Approximately R90,200.00). This is the total amount that needs to be paid
at the Court in order to get the document. Lloyds Bank also needs you to
come to the UK in-person to pay the administrative fee of £240.00 (R5,000)
directly to their cashier over the counter. I would like you to kindly
write to the Lloyds Bank, telling them that you will not be able to come to
the United Kingdom at this time to pay the Administrative fee in person as
required due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. As them to provide you with
alternative ways to pay the fee from South Africa.

The total amount needed to complete the process now is R95,200.00,
excluding the cost of travel (if you will be coming to the United Kingdom).
So far I have spent a lot of money obtaining information, securing the
Letter of Administration, and ensuring a fast-track to your claims
application and have not for once bothered you, or even told you how I have
gone about that. I did not because I am duly aware of what we are chasing
and will be satisfied once this is over. However, I am down now financially
but will work on getting money for the Awarding Certificate of Inheritance
Claim, while you settle the administrative fee as quickly as possible.
