Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. Are you online at this time?
Thanks for the reply. I could use a little more information.
How did you become involved with this person? Can you be more explicit about the nature of the scam, please.
How do you know he actually is a former South African law enforcement officer?
Did you ever meet him in person, or was all of your contact with him via electronic means of one kind or another?
Thank you, ***** ***** think I'm going to opt out of this question and have it transferred to a UK legal expert.
This is a fraud, but as he is an actual person whom you've met and who has ties to your family, I think a solicitor would be more useful to you than I would be.
I will notify the site to transfer this question to our UK law category. WHen a UK legal professional replies, you'll receive an email from JustAnswer letting you know, so you won't have to sit at the computer to await a response.
Have a good weekend.
You say that your father formed a relationship with his mother in South Africa. Has your father ever actually met her? Has your father ever paid any money over to her or anyone else?
In the UK, you are obviously contesting the will. You have reported the matter to the police in SA.
In the UK all you can do is reported to the Police and Action Fraud.
What else is it that you are actually looking for?
Once you have passed it to the police and Action Fraud, then it’s out of your control. I can tell you from past experience that Action Fraud are not particularly communicative when it comes to letting people know exactly how far something has gone.
Obviously you go round to your local police station and also report it here:
Can I clarify anything else for you?
I am pleased to have helped you.
Please don’t forget to rate the service positive. It is an important part of the process by which experts get paid.
