Beware of "Richard Walker Attorney to Billionaire Mrs. Leona Helmsley" Phishing Scam

Recipients of email messages like the one below that claim Richard Walker, the so-called attorney of the late billionaire Mrs. Leona Helmsley, should delete them. They also should not follow the instructions in the same email messages because the messages are being sent by online scammers to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information and money. The scammers, pretending to be Richard Walker, will claim that they are looking for people to do business with. The scammers will then ask their potential victims to send their personal information if they interested, and will subsequently ask them to send money, which they will claim is for taxes, processing fee, insurance or some other fees. But, once the scammers receive the money they will take it and disappear, leaving their victims few hundreds or thousands of dollars broke and depressed.

Please continue below.

The "Richard Walker Attorney to Billionaire Mrs. Leona Helmsley" Phishing Scam

Good day to you!

Though I did not consider this medium to be the best to approach you on this issue being that the Internet has been greatly abused over the years and is not secure for information of vital importance. I have decided to take the chance seeing that no other means could have been faster and more efficient than the E-mail.

My name is Richard Walker, an attorney to Late Billionaire, Mrs. Leona Helmsley, a real estate mogul, who passed on in 2007. In my quest to find a reliable trustee to manage the assets/estate of my late client valued at $15,000,000.00 (Fifteen Million US Dollars), I decided to write this proposal, hoping to reach an understanding with you and do business together.

Here is a short press report shortly after her passing away: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20358637/ . Whatever that report painted her to be, she was a great woman doing good especially in the area of charity, in the last five years of her life.

I shall be willing to supply you with more detailed information concerning this business upon hearing from you. I have no intention whatsoever of interfering with your private life considering the fact that you have never had any communication with me in the past. Due to the nature of this business, and by law, I cannot assume the role of a trustee or appoint any of my relations to become the beneficiary. Consequently, I seek your consent to stand as the Deceased’s Trustee/Next of Kin and therefore the beneficiary of the funds she left in Reliance Bank here in London under my care.

Sharing percentage is subject to our mutual agreement.

If you are interested get back to me for full details. Kindly reply to my private email address: richywalk1010@gmail.com


Richard Walker.
