Customer Question

Hello Zoey, Hello Zoey,
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: I live in New South Wales, Australia. I was contacted by Paul Bright, who calls himself Principal Attorney of Bright Paul Royal Chambers, Republic of Lome - Togo after receiving from his "client", a woman dying of cancer in hospital, a promise to send me $2,500,000 from which I should keep 15% and distribute the rest to orphans and the poor. This seems like a typical scam. Can you please advise me? Thanks and best regards, ***** *****
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: I had emails from Paul Bright sending me attachments from Banque Internationale De L'Afrique De L'ouest (Bia Bank) attaching Sworn Affidavit of Oah from High Court of Togo, Certificate of Inheritance from High Court of Togo and wanting $950 from me for processing fee to activate the transfer of funds to my account.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Are Paul Bright and Bright Paul Royal Chambers legitimate?
