How to check if you received a scam email

  1. Google the details.

    Do a Google search for the persons name/company name that the email has come from.

  2. Confirm the details.

    Visit their website and look for a phone number or email address. Search for the website yourself. Do not assume the details in the email are valid.

  3. Confirm using the information you have found

    Using the details you have researched, call or email the business and ask them to verify the information within the email.

  4. Check if the email has been sent to multiple people

    Google snippets of the email text to see if the same format has been used in the past. eg “Army officer from Syria but now living with the United Nations on asylum”

  1. This guy has been doing this scam for years and have gotten a lot more “sophisticated” to include no more Yahoo or Gmail addresses and has his own portal account. Such as Robert@RobertBlacket.com or Robb@RobertBlackett.com, etc. He tells you – if you bother to answer him from his first email which is spam as “get back to me on my original message” to you before he explains it all – that his client (BTW – Robert Blackett is a real London lawyer who knows all about this scam going on with his name too) died and miraculously YOU are entitled to his money which looks like something like $10+ million. Then he puts together very fancy documents with stamps and all that supposedly from the Cooperative Bank (which they also know that he is a total scam artist). He puts more effort into this scam than any other which I have ever seen and I have been tracking scammers for years. He also give you his private number – which I did not bother to call – maybe you want to just to “play along with him” and that number is: +447588730142.
