Inheritance Fraud

Commercial Crimes » Inheritance Fraud

The suspect will inform the victim that the latter has been identified as the heir to an inheritance from someone who has died. The fortune is usually overseas. Several supporting documents from government departments, such as the Ministry of Justice, court, Central Bank of Malaysia, are included to convince the victim. The victim, whether a Malaysian or foreigner, is told to have a so-called grandfather or relative who used to be in Malaysia and is a wealthy benefactor who left no heirs upon their death. In such cases, the suspects will charge a fee to handle the transfer of the inheritance to the victim. However, the fact remains that the alleged fortune does not exist.
