Free money always sounds great right? This online scam uses the trick of letting you think by email that you got an inheritance from a long lost relative or a wealthy benefactor. The scammer will try to make you think the deceased person has no other relatives and that you are the only legitimate beneficiary. Sometimes they will tell you, you can inherit the money directly or they will help you by using some legal tricks. Once you have fallen for their scam, they will ask you to pay a fee so they can arrange something for you. However, once you have paid, they will disappear with your money and of course you will never get any inheritance.
