    I have been contacted by a man who identifies himself as Barrister Herbert Smith Esq. He has been claiming to be Liliane Bettencourts Barrister. Has been scamming me for quite some time now...said she has an account at the FIBI Bank In London Uk, Worth $100,000,000 Euros...that she has given it to me, along with a 3 bedroom home in Denver Co., a Mercedes Benz Car. I have given a lot of money to this man, and this bank. The bank officers or those who claim they are, Gilbert brown, Christine C.Hockeys, who says she is a friend of Herbert Smith, and current man who claims he`s now in charge of my so-called funds, Tony Ewars.

    I have paid twice for delivery charges, for a package I have never received...they refuse to give me back my money. I have sent money to people in Nigeria for Mr. Smith, he claims my money goes into his personal account in Nigeria; when it is suppose to go to the FIBI Bank in London...these people are michael egute, tony ewute, glory ewute..Linda M.Mulstay @ Lin0122507@aol.com.

    I have received a long email from Ms Lilian, along with the bianco bank form "signed" by her, along with the name of existing lawyer from the bank.

    Luckily, the sender neither asked for a depositn nor required anything except my name and address.

    She (someone) urged me to contact the lawyer ASAP since her daughter "prevents" her from sending money and she urged because doctors will soon forbid her electronic communication.

    I would not mind getting some money... but this is sick
