    Hello, I am so glad that I just found this page and I am thankful that you posted this. I’ve got the exact same mail from “jerome lewe” but just the Boris was with my last name :))

    I have to say that I replied to him and we talked pretty much. I was very naive and I just wanted to send the fee of 4800€ even if I don’t have it. I wrote very many mails and it was just nice to talk to him. He sounds kind, and he was very patient with me that’s why I was going so far, he was giving me also his phone number and you would not believe I actually called him and heard his voice but the connection was very bad so I could not understand him so we wrote emails again. He sayed more times that I should feel free to call him. He was telling me about his family and stuff like that. That his wife has since a month cancer. Yes we talked much to each other. The documents just looked real because I have not seen like that before. The bank in wich the Money is “deposited” exists in real and I had the impress that I really talked to the bank and then to a chamber. It sounds very great to heritage this amount of money. But after reading your post here are my eyes opened.

    Thank you so much!!!

      Thanks for sharing your experience, Christine.
      You’re right, the email looks legit. I almost got hooked also when I first read it. Had I not googled his name, I might have gotten as far as you did.
      I’m glad my post helped.
      Good thing you didn’t send the money that he’s asking for. If you did, I doubt if you hear from him again.

    Hey guys, i’m from Thailand and I got this email too.
    And when i read it, i realize that it’s a spam!!
    because the last name in Email is not my real last name.
    it’s just the last name on my facebook and it’s korean singer’s name haha.

    thank you for your information & hope other people does not believe him.

      Hi Ning, thanks for visiting Pinay Investor 🙂

      The email addresses where they send the spams to were from facebook and they use the last name on our account/profile.
      I learned about it when I received an email from facebook right after I got the spam email.
      I wonder if you also received that facebook email?
