As you can see this email from scammer Gil Williams has all the hallmarks of the Advance Fee Scam. At some point this scammer will ask for a fee upfront.
Solicitor Gil Williams Second Email
The next email i recieved from Scammer Gil Williams had alot more information that the first email. Scammers will generally spin stories to potential victims in an attempt to make the scam believable.
The scammer also asks for alot of personal details in this email. This information should never be given to the scammers.
