The Spaniard's Loot

The Spaniard's Loot

Image of Gonzales Olio scamMisfortune seems to follow the filthy rich clients of Spanish lawyers David Ramos, Gonzales Olias, San Diego Samaranch Esq, David T Duddias, David Thomson Jr and David Lopez.

They all end up dead!  Most die in traffic accidents on the Madrid Highway.

But the coincidences don’t end there.

Shortly before their untimely deaths, all deposit enormous sums of money in bank vaults (usually $22 million) and more amazingly, all die without a will.

So what becomes of their fortunes?  The banks, with whom these fortunes are deposited, will release the funds only to family members, without whom, the money will be declared “unclaimed” and returned to the government.

Despite our legal guns’ best efforts to locate the rightful heirs to these fortunes – which include consulting the white and yellow pages – none can be found.

Even though the Spanish Government could probably do with the money to carry out urgent works to its incredibly dangerous Madrid Highway, David Ramos and his cohorts, think the money deserves a better home.

So they proposition complete strangers on the other side of the world to pose as relatives of their deceased clients, enabling the funds to be released. In return, these strangers get a half cut in the fortunes – they’ll take the other half.

The offer is limited to Australians lucky enough to share the same surnames as their late clients.

The paperwork is ready to go and the whole business is perfectly legitimate, Ramos and Co assure us.  If you’ve moral or ethical reservations about such a proposition, consider this: accept their offer of an easy $11 million and they’ll invest their cut of the money right here in Australia! So you’ll not only be stinking rich you’ll also be helping our nation. Nothing could be nobler ... or more foolish.

Ramos and Co have one other thing in common – they are all scammers.  Perhaps they are all one and the same person.  One thing’s for sure – anybody who gets involved in this scheme will end up little better off than Ramos’ supposed clients.

Letters from Ramos and his cronies have been sent all over Australia and while their initial correspondence requests no money – only your urgent response and co-operation – subsequent letters will convince you of the need to send them money, thus enabling them to start freeing up the bank funds.

By responding to the letters, you will be entering what is commonly referred to as an advance-fee fraud.

These requests for money will continue, probably increasing each time, until you realise you have been conned.

WA ScamNet recommends you never respond to these types of such letters.
