Patricia Lewis. Thanks for awareness..

  • April 17, 2018 at 4:00 PM by an anonymous user from: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

    I received a similar e-mail... but with different information... I guess it is to be expected they would change some of it to continue the scam...

    I received the same email to my work email however it does not show my email.

    Thank you

    I just received this same email with different contact names. I just forwarded it to thank you!

  • February 20, 2018 at 8:32 PM by an anonymous user from: Needham, Massachusetts, United States

    We just received this EXACT email from Mark of Welshhome Fiduciary. They dont actually type the body of the email...the body is pasted as an image. That was another tip off for me that something was off. Like they say, if it seems too good to be true...

    Thank you for confirming what I believed to be a scam.

    I'm going to forward to the email address posted above.

    I reieved the simillar email but became skeptic when they made it so simple that I can deposit the money in my local bank where they have the agent which was the name of of the person and not the company. I think these people are also operating from my country too. Thanks for the awareness.
