I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF YOUR INSULT

Mal Reynolds, defender of all that is Serene, and frequent visitor to Scamorama, returns to face David Bassett - as British as he wants to be.


THINGS I LEARNED FROM 419s

-If you have been left a fortune by a mystery benefactor, the lawyer who tells you about it is entitled to 75% of the money just for telling you.

-Banks in the UK may demand fees in pounds sterling, but for everything else, the US dollar is where it's at.

-The county of Middlesex is located in London.

The Scammers

David Bassett, Barrister Lad from Middlesex in London...
Newton Dayer, Banker Lad
Cluatom Sherimgham, Newton Dayer's WU contact; perhaps the weirdest Lad name I've seen 
Peter Jones, account holder at "Northern Bank"

The Baiter

Malcolm Reynolds, an ex-US Marine Corps officer living in Australia

Mack Owens, an inheritance scammer from way back, brought in to create confusion

With thanks to VP Manchester of 419 Eater for the use of her telephone number and time

And Western Union appears as usual. I'm sure you're comforted by that.

In the header we see a familiar motif – the Lad who hasn't quite grasped the fact that not all England is located in London.

And just so you understand – the question marks disappeared when I hit the reply button.

[An example of the Dead Bank Customer Letter. The quality control on these leaves something to be desired, as demonstrated by an example sent directly to Scamorama which lamented the passing of a Dr. Maurice Wohl and sought help in disbursing his estate. While he was indeed philanthropic, the boilerplate mention of Dr. Wohl as a "very dedicated Christian" would surprise the members of the synagogue where he served as president.]

[I've received something very like this before – could come in useful...]

Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

I think there may have been some mistake here.

I honestly don't recall anyone named Jurgen Krugger, and I have no idea why I would be mentioned in his will.

[The Lad must have mixed up his scams and decided to treat this as a normal trunk box scam – as least as far as the payout goes.]

heaps of cash in boxes

21 March 2007

I want to thank you for your prompt answer to my proposal and also for your willingness to assist me in the transfer of the fund.
It is pertinenet for me to tell you the full details of the transaction. We can achieve this in one way.
We will make use of our payment center for inheritance to move the fund to your account. First and foremost, we will have to go to the probate registry to obtain a will of testament on the deceased with which we will file an application for the release of the fund in your name. As soon as it is approved, we will use our contact to endorse the payment to our payment office for inheritance/banking. This is where you will be required to open a non residence account in our correspondence bank from where the entire fund will be credited into the account, from there you will make direct online transfer to your account.
Based on the above explanation,a cashiers check for $7.1 million dollars cannot be send to you as you have an idea that the money is by far to big for a cashires check, the way-out is by using a wire transfer.
We are proposing a sharing formular of 15% for you for standing as the beneficiary, 75% for me and my partners as originators of the deal and the remaining 10% will have to be set aside to settle every expenses that will be incured by either party in the process of securing the fund. I thank you once again and look forward to a good working relationship with you.

BARRISTER DAVID BASSETT ESQ.

[Scam-o-newbies, note, the (imaginary) paperwork will cost (real) money. But maybe you sensed that.]

Malcolm Reynolds

[Let's get him off script for a bit.]

Mr Bassett,

There's something wrong here.

You said that Jurgen Krugger named me as beneficiary in his will. I don't recall meeting him, but let's give that a miss for now.

What I was an explanation for is this:
"We are proposing a sharing formular of 15% for you for standing as the beneficiary, 75% for me and my partners as originators of the deal and the remaining 10% will have to be set aside to settle every expenses that will be incured by either party in the process of securing the fund".

According to you, I AM the beneficiary!
Exactly what makes you think that you're entitled to any of it at all?

Regards,

Malcolm Reynolds
David Bassett
22 March 2007

Dear Malcolm Reynolds,

We are proposing a sharing formular of 15% for you because you did not know that you where made the beneficiary to the deceased and 75% for me and my partners as originators of the deal while the remaining 10% , will be set for incure expences, haven said that, i will adivce that you send your pesonal info, to enable me file for the will of testament t the probate registry.

I presume that you understand the above explanations and look forard to hear from you soon.

BARRISTER DAVID BASSETT ESQ.

[It's not a good explanation...]

[It definitely deserves a slap.]

Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

I don't accept that even for an instant!

If Jurgen Krugger left me $7.1 million – I can only guess that he may have somehow heard of my active service in Operation Desert Saber – then there is no way in creation that you are entitled to any of it! I'd be happy to pay that 10% figure to you as a fee for tracking me down, but 75% for you and your partners, whoever they are, is simply absurd.

I suggest that you take that under advisement.

I'll send you my details once you've fallen into line.

Regards,

Malcolm Reynolds
Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

Please indicate if you are willing to continue in line with the new conditions as detailed in my last message.

[He still doesn't understand...]

27 March 2007

Dear Malcolm Reynolds,

thank you for your email to me dated 25/03/2007.

i have agree to the 50 % each for both that you wish.please i will want you get back to me , so that we can move forward with this business.

Yours,
DAVID BASSETT
Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

You may agree on a 50/50 share – but I don't! As I said before – as far as I'm concerned, you aren't entitled to any of it. I'm willing to give you 10% for bringing the will to my attention but that is all.

Regards,
Malcolm Reynolds
David Bassett

[He gives a little, but it's still not enough...]

28 March 2007

Dear Malcolm Reynolds,
How are yo doing? is so good to have recieved your email today.

Please i understand that the will is yours, but i want to beg of you to make my own share of it 15%, because i am going spend money at the probate registry, to get the will of testament in you name as the next of kin to the decease.Please, do get back to me so that we can move forward.

Yours,
DAVID BASSETT
Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

Your share will be 10%, and I'm being generous. No further discussion. I do not believe that any charges anywhere could add up to $300,000 – which is what you're asking for.

I don't understand your point about "get[ting] the will of testament in you name as the next of kin to the decease". If the will has been made and I've been named as the beneficiary, what is this all about? Please explain.

Malcolm Reynolds
David Bassett

[No, he hasn't made much sense at all – and he got the amount wrong. ]

31 March 2007

Dear Malcolm Reynolds,

How are you dong today? it's has been a busy week on my side,so am sorry for the delay to reply you back.Yes, i got your email and the content was well understood, on the 10%, which i already agree on your 10%. Regards, to your question ( If the will has been made and I've been named as the beneficiary, what is this all about? Please explain) once the will of testament is made, this means that you now have full right to the side $ 1.7 to you, then you will have to contact the payment centra for inheritance.

However,like i told you in my passt email that i have filed for the will of testament at the probate registry and will be out in two to three working days time. i am please to notify you that the will of testament is out, which now makes you have the full right to the funds as the beneficiary to the funds.This is what you will have to do now, you are to contact the paying bank on how you will need to open a non-residence account, from this account you will now make a direct online transfer to your loca account.

I believe i have make i have make a little sence here and hope to hear from you as soon as possible.

Yours,
DAVID BASSETT
Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,
So far you've done more to confuse than clarify.

You didn't agree on the 10%; you asked for 15%, which of course I refused. If you have any expenses you can bill for them normally.

Now – "this means that you now have full right to the side $ 1.7 to you, then you will have to contact the payment centra for inheritance" – for a start, it's $7.1 million; secondly, I'd like to know what you mean by the "payment centra". You mentioned it before but there were other issues to work through, namely – where is the money now? Is it in a bank? What purpose does the "payment centra" serve? Please clarify as soon as possible.

Malcolm Reynolds

[Fine – he has agreed to 10% of SFA. I wonder why he bothered arguing?]

Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

OK, we've agreed on the 10%. That's good.

As for the payment center – OK, work with me here. Why must I open an account with them to transfer the money to my existing account?

Malcolm Reynolds
David Bassett

[Still more bafflegab...]

03 April 2007

Mr. Malcolm Reynolds,
How are you doing today and how was your weekend? My own weekend was good .

Now that we have agree on the 10%, which is ok and myself, let move forward.Business.The reason why you need to open an account with the bank/security firm is that the funds is deposited as beneficiary valuables, by the deceased person and the law guilding the funds when deposited .between the deceased person and the bank/security firm states that before the release of the funds to the beneficiary, the beneficiary will have to open an account with the bank/security firm since is a way of the bank/security , getting more customers to the firm.So i believe this best explain why you will need to open an account before the funds can be transfer to you.

I will further adivce that you contact the bank/security firm on how to open an account with them.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours,
DAVID BASSETT.

["Beneficiary valuables" – yet another phrase for the Lad Lexicon. ]

Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

"Beneficiary valuables"? What was wrong with a bank?

OK then – I'll contact the bank/security firm (in whichever capacity). More as it comes to hand.

Malcolm Reynolds
David Bassett
04 April 2007

Dear Mr. Malcolm Reynolds,
Beneficiary valuables,simply means the funds deposited by the deceased person under the beneficiary, upon claim of the funds and for security reasons as well.
as soon as yo open communication with the bank/security firm, the bank/security firm will then guild you on how you will open he account with them and get the funds transfer to you. Please, as soon as you contact the bank/security firm, keep me posted.

Yours,
DAVID BASSETT

Please confirm.

Thank you for the prompt reply.

ATTENTION:Malcolm Reynolds, Traditional the mainstay business of UK banks accounts operate in a manner whereby you simply deposit money into an account for next of kin,fixed deposit ,non UK residence account,current account ,etc. then withdraw the money at any time after all logistics have been clear up. This facilities offered by UK banks differ from bank-to-bank; in this regard, it is important that you decid on which one will best benefit you.
However,Since the dawn of time, in order to be profitable when opening an account with any of the bank here in the UK AND TYPES OF BANK ACCOUNT TO BE OPEN BY AN INDIVIDUAL, the primary function of banks, including UK banks, has been two-fold: (a) to receive deposits from owners depositing funds in favuor of there next of kin, when need arise; and (b) to advance credit. Over time, what has evolved is not a change in the fundamental nature of this two-fold function, but the manner in which such service is provided.Typically UK banking services and products can be broken-down into these two principal functions.
The following is a brief explanation of how each of these works:
A. RECEIVING DEPOSITS
1. Current Accounts(OWNERS/NEXT OF KIN)In the not too recent past , the only type of ?non-residence? account you would have been able to open would have been a traditional cheque-book current account which will not permit you to transfer online. However, as with most services in the banking sector, recently our banks have started to offer their customers a wide range of account services in the hopes of attracting (and, more importantly, keeping) their custom. Consequently, today (depending on whether or not you qualify) you could feasible open any one of the following types of accounts below.
.1 NON RESIDENCE ACCOUNTS.
As the name suggests, the non residence current account offers customers the chance to open and deposit money on an account that allows them to withdraw the money by means of online direct transfer from any part of the world.
.2 REGULAR ACCOUNTS. cheque-book and cheque guarantee card and the ATM card withrawer service. .3 PREMIUM ACCOUNTS. This allows you to apply for credit card,insurance cover at a lower prize renage. .4 PLATINUM ACCOUNTS. This service provide you with Platinum gold card for a wilder renage use any where in the world also online transaction withdrawer as well.
Moreover, subject to approval from the bank, customers who have { non residence accounts,REGULAR ACCOUNTS,PREMIUM ACCOUNTS,PLATINUM ACCOUNTS } is entitle to apply for a UK citizenship visa. All above are Traditional the mainstay business of NORTHERN WEST BANK UK benefits.
I want to thank you for giving me time to educate you on our banking fecibility and advantages of banking with the NORTHERN WEST BANK UK.

[I really don't think that UK banks have existed "Since the dawn of time" – but I won't point that out.
He didn't cut and paste this if the punctuation and spelling are any guide – so he must have written it out in full; good to know.]

[If he thinks that's all that he has to do, then he can think again. ]

I'll need a full run-down on each account type, features and specials, to narrow down the choices.

[Out of curiosity, I googled for NORTHERN WEST BANK (as per his headers).]

Mr Bassett,

We have a problem.

I went to my bank to arrange for a transfer to the Northern West bank, complete with invoice and paperwork – and I was told there's no such bank as Northern West Bank.

DAVID BASSETT.

[In what universe would that not be a problem? ]

Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

Are you listening to me? My bank says there's no such gorram bank as Northern West! What am I supposed to do – write to Mr Dayer and say, "My bank says you don't exist, how about that?" What the hell did you do with my money? Remember, if this lot goes belly up, you don't get a cent! Malcolm Reynolds

[I edited an earlier scam letter... ]

On behalf of the Trustees and Executor of the estate of my late client Engr. Jurgen Krugger. I wish to notify you that our late client Engr. Jurgen Krugger made you a beneficiary to his WILL.

He left the sum of Five Million Seven Hundred and Fifty Thousand GB Pounds (GBP 5,750,000.00) to you in the Codicil and last testament to his WILL.

Late Engr. Jrgen Krgger died on the 13th day of December, 2004 at the age of 80 years, and his WILL is now ready for execution. According to him this money is to support your humanitarian activities and to help the poor and the needy in our society. Endeavor to get back to me as soon as possible to enable me conclude my job.

Attn: Malcolm Reynolds,
With regards to your previous mail, it goes to show that there is someone out there trying to play a fast one and collect the money for him/herself, and I hope you are not in on it.
It is clear that the actual money in question is available for your collection as the next of kin and true recipient of the funds, but you have to know that I am the sole Executor of the estate of my late client (Engr. Jurgen Krugger) and if you do not act according to my directives you may loose the right of the next of kinship to his estate . I want you to disregard any other mail from the so called Mack Owens as he is not a part of any legal operation of this transaction; you are to go on ahead with the normal proceedings that I have given to you, and meet the bank requirement as soon as possible to avoid any interruption on the fund transfer proceedings.As soon as payment is made for account activation,the transfer will commence.
NOTE: This goes to show that there is a fraud Some where trying to swindle the funds at stake, I hope you not involved in trying to cheat me of my 10% of the total sum, I guess I will have to trust and take your word as your bond??
I will want to thank you for the time you took to mail and warm me on this intruder to our funds. ? to be for warned is to be for harmed?

Sincerely,
David Bassett.
Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

Now here's the interesting thing.

You see, Mr Owens has sent me several documents to prove that the money exists. He even sent me a copy of the will and the deposit certificate. So far, I have nothing beyond your word, and that of Mr Dayer, on that score.

I suggest that you give me a reason or three to believe you now, or I might just reconsider this business and ask Mr Owens to take action against you. He didn't demand 75% up front, as you did.

I expect a prompt reply.

Malcolm Reynolds
David Bassett

[Not so confident now, is he? ]

24 April 2007

Dear Malcolm Reynolds,

Thank you very much for your email and updating me on how Mr Owens have furnish you with some document .

I have come to understand that late Engr. Jurgen Krugger, been a wealthy individual has alot of properties of which another lawyer might be handling elsewhere that I don't know of in particular because it is only this estate that is under my firm that I know about Concerning the documents for the Transfer of Beneficiary and Certificate of Deposit, I have forwarded these documents to the Bank to enable the them transfer the funds to your account once you have met the Bank's policy concerning account opening. I chose this process for you which I believe will make the transfer of your inherited funds smooth.

I will really appreciate if you can give me the contact information of Mr Mark Owens, so I can verify if he is indeed handling other properties of  late Engr. Jurgen Krugger.

Regards
David Bassett
Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

With respect, Mr Owens has nothing to prove.

You, on the other hand, do have something to prove.

I suggest that you either reclaim the documents from the bank and forward copies to me, or request that the bank do that.

Malcolm Reynolds

[The Lad knocks a will together – however, it won't pass muster. ]

David Bassett
28 April 2007

ATTENTION :Malcolm Reynolds,Please find an attach copy of the will of testament and certificate of deposit of late (ENGR. JURGEN KRUGGER ).
Thank you for your email and i hope to hear from you.

Dear Malcolm Reynolds,Thank you for your email dated 26th April 2007

.Hope to hear from you soon, as you have said.Regards,
Mr David Bassett.

[I don't want to give him any hints on hoe to improve his paperwork, so let's focus on one glaring error.]

Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

We have opened up a real can of worms here.
Our deal is in jeopardy.

The will you have post-dates the Owens' will, so it normally would take precedence. However, it's got a serious error – it simply refers to me as "Malcolm Reynolds of Australia". I'm a US citizen. As such it could (and would) be argued that the will does not clearly identify me as the beneficiary and thus is invalid.

I'll get the contact details for Mack Owens as soon as possible.

Malcolm Reynolds
David Bassett
01 May 2007

Dear Malcolm Reynolds ,Thank you for your prompt responce, also about Mack Owens.
At this point, the error on the "Will" is from the probate registry, this can be corrected.I will go back to the probate registry and inform them on this error. thank you for your tmie to emailed me.I will get back to you as soon as this is done at the probate registry.
Yours,
David Bassett.

[I supplied a number monitored (and answered) by veteran 419 Eater member "VP Manchester". ]

Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

What the hell? You can't just change a will! Isn't that forgery? The will was signed and stamped with just that info on it!

You may have to talk to Mack Owens about this, because I'm out of my depth here. His number is +44-XXX-XX-XXXX.

Let me know what he says.

Malcolm Reynolds
Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

Have you spoken to Mack Owens yet?

I let him know that you'd want to speak to him.

Please call him and settle this ASAP.

Malcolm Reynolds

[FYI; the Lad never actually spoke to VP Manchester but hung up every time. ]

David Bassett
04 May 2007

Dear Malcolm Reynolds,
Thank you so much for your email and the phone contact of Mack Owens.I have tried to reach Mack Owens with the following phone number +44-XXX-XX-XXXX, but at all time a lady picks up the phone, this has realy made it ethic to speak with him as is not on sit.But from the look of things, Mack Owens, might be another lawyer handly late (ENGR.JURGEN KRUGGER ). other properties out-side the onces i know about, of which you might be the next of kin to this said (ENGR.JURGEN KRUGGER ).property, that Mack Owens is the lawyer .
Concerning the " WILL " the probate registry said the will can not be re-write that the late (ENGR.JURGEN KRUGGER )has already written it and so it will stand,please fee free to and go ahead as the will is already in your name.
Please do accept my apology on this case of the will error.
However, i will only advice here that you proceed with the bank and get the funds transfer to you account.
Warm regards,
David Bassett.
Malcolm Reynolds

[I'm hoping that this will give the Lad a little bit of heartburn...]

Mr Bassett,

You probably got Mack Owens' secretary I guess. Did you leave a message?

The big problem remains that the will that you possess may well be invalid, in which case the will in Mack Owens' possession takes precedence. Under those circumstances, he has prior call on my business, and I guess you'll have to wait.

I'm seeking a third, unbiased opinion. My partner is a paralegal, and she's qualified to comment on these matters.

Malcolm Reynolds
David Bassett
05 May 2007

Dear Malcolm,

Yes, i did get Mack Owens secretary and i did leave a message with her.

Please can you ask Mack Owens to call since am unable to get to him but alays the secretary, please tell him to call me on this number:+44 703 183 6487, that i will like to speak ith him not his secretary. You can also reach me on this number.

Yours,
David .B

[A slap seems to be in order. ]

Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

I am not your gorram messenger boy!

If you have issues with Mack Owens, then I suggest that you take it up with him, or leave your details (and number) with the secretary.

On that note – why were you so put out by having to speak to a woman? Do you have problems with women? I'd hate to find out that you're a misogynist. I thought Great Britain generally was enlightened in its attitude to women being in positions of authority – please don't prove me (and Margaret Thatcher) wrong.

In regards to the will – do you have any other documentation relating to it? If there were anything that could clarify the issue of my nationality (ie which definitely referred to me as a US citizen), it would be very helpful to our case.

Malcolm Reynolds
David Bassett
09 May 2007

Dear Malcolm Reynolds,So sorry for the delay to reply your email, due to family matter.
Yes,There is another documentation referred to you as a US citizen, this is the power ofattoney,Find an acttachmet copy of the power of attoney by late ENGR.JURGEN KRUGGER.
Yours,Mr DAVID Bassett.

Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

This isn't going to do much good - it hasn't been formally signed.

Without that, I can't see Mr Owens letting it go unchallenged.

Malcolm Reynolds

[I don't know what he could have read as insults; rebukes, yes, but not profanity.]

David Bassett
10 May 2007

Mr Malcolm Reynolds ,
Prior to your correspondence mail ,all effort have been made to proved that late ENGR.JURGEN KRUGGER have will this money to you,of which the bank known about it all , but all seem to be no avail from your side.
I want you to understand that, not even the bank that want to pay the money out ,is asking so much, because this are thesame document late ENGR.JURGEN KRUGGER have with the bank.
Alsoundersatnd that i have spent some money on this and with the look of things, you do not want to give me my own 10% as promise by you ,well you can have it all,as you so wish to. I have had enough of your insult.
David Bassett
Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

What the hell is biting you? When did I insult you? Is it so wrong to not rush blindly into business – or is there some other reason for this?

In any event, the papers that you supplied to me are, in the opinion of my own legal advisor, invalid and unacceptable.

I have no alternative but to continue my dealings with Mr Owens.

I do not regret this decision as your attitude has become increasingly tiresome and your misogyny hard to accept.

Malcolm Reynolds
David Bassett
11 May 2007

Dear Malcolm Reynolds,

So sorry for the error
from my end, it was due to the fact that the power of attorney was prepared in triplicate by the deceased,one for himself,one for our keep and the last for you, but during the his handing over of the hard copy ,one of the last two copies was not signed which i mistakenly send you but attached is the signed copy by late ENGR.JURGEN KRUGGER.Please accept my apology.

Yours,
David Bassett.

Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

This is much better.

Give Mark Owens a call – it may swing the matter back to you for good.

Yours,
DAVID BASSETT
Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

Two words – "insufficient validation".

I'm afraid that the PoA doesn't pass muster. Under the circumstances I can only go ahead with Mack Owens as he has far better documentation.

Did you actually speak with him? Perhaps we can sort something out.
Malcolm Reynolds
Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

Late update - I got Mack Owens' personal phone number - +44-XXXX-XXX-XXX. My service is still twisted up, so I've had no luck.

Malcolm Reynolds
David Bassett
22 May 2007

Dear Malcolm Reynolds,

Thank you very much for your email.Now you will understand when i say i was unable to get Mack Owens on phone, as the number that was given to me by you initially was not thesame as these +44-XXXX-XXX-XXX, where was the first number (+44XXX XXX XXXX), this have called for why Mack Owens gave you a wrong number at the first place,this i want you to ask him.

However, i will like to speak with you on phone on this matter.I will deeply appreciate you giving me your number so that i can call you and we will talk much better .

I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours,

DAVID BASSETT

[He just doesn't get it... but he should get this. ]

Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

Were you born stupid or did you have to learn?

I told you that the second number is his private line, and the first was his office number. How the Sam Frick you got that wrong I'll never understand!

Call Mack Owens and sort this out, for all our sakes. Your 10% is riding on it, remember!

Malcolm Reynolds

[It seems that he's had enough and is happy (not) to let some other Lad chop his dollar.]

David Bassett
23 May 2007

Dear Malcolm Reynolds,

I have just got insulted by you once more and i will not welcome that anymore from you just for 10%.

You can go ahead with Mack Owens as i have told you that i will not call him anymore. But first i have to make something clear to you here that, when you are through with Mack Owens , you will then know between myself and Mack Owens , who is truthful here.

Do have a nice day.

Yours,
DAVID BASSETT.
Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

When I have all my money and I'm holidaying in Prague, I'll send you a postcard saying "$710,000" to remind you of what you turned down – bonehead!

Think about that!

David Bassett

[Maybe I spoke too soon.]

24 May 2007

Dear Malcolm Reynolds,
When you are done with them, you can get back to me.

DAVID BASSETT
Malcolm Reynolds
Mr Bassett,

Why the hell should I have anything to do with a deadbeat loser like you? Suck it up!
