Hoy en día y gracias a las redes sociales están llegando numerosas formas de estafa, una de ellas es la supuesta herencia a cobrar de una persona fallecida con el mismo apellido que usted y como no tiene familiares podría cobrar jugosos millones, claro pagando el 50% al supuesto trabajador del banco que le ayudará en este trámite.
El siguiente es un mensaje de un estafador:

I am contacting you to assist me in repatriating the funds left behind by my late client since you both share the same last name.This claim will be executed without breaching any UK laws and success is guaranteed if we cooperate on this.
