Who is Barr. Jonathan Gray?

Barrister Jonathan Gray is a scammer — or more precisely, a scammer is using the name “Barr. Jonathan Gray” to try to hook people into his scam.

This is a standard “advance fee fraud” that promises to cut you in on a piece of the action, as long as you’ll assist in getting money out of the country (Hong Kong in this case). If you offer to assist, “Barrister Jonathan” will insist that you pay “advance fees” to grease the transaction, and if you pay up, he’ll disappear with your money, never to be heard from again.

The Dying Widow Cancer Scam

One of the most common types of advance fee frauds is the “widow dying of cancer” scam, and the format of the message below is typical. “Mrs. Nadia Edward” was married to a wealthy man who is now dead, and they have no children. “Mrs. Nadia” is herself now dying of cancer, and she needs help giving away her millions. She is a very religious person, so you know you can trust her. (These messages almost always include a religious component.) If you offer to assist her, she’ll tell you that you only need to send a small amount of cash to her so the funds can be released from the bank (maybe to bribe the corrupt bank officials), and then the millions will be on their way. Alas, if you go along, you’ll lose this “advance fee” and never hear from “Mrs. Nadia” again.

Dearest in Christ,

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I’m Mrs.Nadia Edward the widow of late Mr Edward , I’m 74 year sold. I am a Christian convert, suffering from prolonged cancer of the breast, from all medical indications my condition has really deteriorated and it’s pretty obvious that i may not live for more than six months owning to the rapid growth by stage and the excruciating pain that accrues to it.

My husband was killed during the Gulf War,and our long years of marriage was not blessed with children. My husband was very wealthy.After his death I inherited all his business and funds. My doctor has diagnosed and told me privately what i should expect, building my spirit for the inevitable .He says i may not last for more than six months,based on this i have taken the decision to share part of my funds and wealth in contribution to the development of the Church and society with major focus on the poor, needy and victims of HIV/AIDS.

I selected you after visiting the website having prayed over it, I am willing to donate the sum of $6.300,000USD for your work in developing the Church and to help the poor, needy,and less privileged among your congregations/society. Please note that this fund is deposited in a bank in the country where my husband worked, My lawyer will file the application for the transfer of this money in your designated name and information’s, after my applications and instructions.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you. finally i honestly employ you to make sure that these funds are put to use only for this purpose, a good one you can agree with me,and remember these are the demands of a dieing woman who has a life in the lord. I now realize that wealth without life in Christ is vanity and non-sense.Always remember that.

May the grace and blessings of God be and remain with you.

I shall be awaiting for your response.

Mrs.Nadia Edward

Win a New BMW! (scam alert)

The only thing better than winning a new car is winning a new car plus a million dollars! And all from a lottery you never entered! Unfortunately it’s all a scam. The message below, which thousands or maybe even millions of people received this month, is a classic lottery scam message. If you respond, you’ll be told you need to pay a “service fee” or something similar before your prize can be delivered. Once you pay the fee, the scammers will disappear and you’ll never hear from them again.

Mrs. Leah Mitchell’s Cancerous Ailment (Scam Alert)

The “sick woman scam” is a standard type of advance fee fraud, and the message below is a good example. A wealthy dying widow (who you’ve never heard of) needs your help to distribute millions of dollars before she dies. For your assistance she’ll be glad to cut you in. Like all advance fee frauds, the scam involves having you send an “advance fee” to help transfer the money to your bank account. Once the scammers have got the advance fee in their hands they vanish, leaving no trace behind other than the hole in your pocket.
