Complaint Review: Barrister Fred Goziechi Solicitor - Nationwide

Barrister Fred Goziechi Solicitor
[email protected] Nationwide, U.S.A.
Tell us has your experience with this business or person been good? What's this?
I received an email from a Barrester Fred Goziechi,Solicitor, in Lacos Nigeria, stating that my late husband had a brother that was killed in a car accident in Nigeria. His wife and three children were also killed. My late husband did not have a brother.

Mr. Goziechi stated that he has been trying to locate us for two years. He stated that the Estate of the deceased amounted to Nine Million dollars, and that if he filed an affidavit in my name that he would take 55%, and I would get 40%, the other 5% would go to my Government for expenses and taxes.

After several emails back and forth Mr. Goziechi finally asked me to send him Five Thousand dollars to cover the cost of this filing. He also wanted my home phone number, fax number, all my Banking information, my occupation, age, birthday. This man even went so far as to email me a copy of the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death. Which looked foney to me.

I had a feeling right from the start that this was an Internet Scam. I did not give him any of the information he wanted, in fact I told him, I felt he was trying to scam me out of money. This was an insult to him and he got very defensive.

I told him to pay the 5 thousand dollar fee to file the affidavit, and when I had my 45% of the 9 Million dollars in my possession, only then would I pay him his money.

I have not received his reply as of yet.

I am sure Mr. Goziechi has tried this scam on other people, and for an Attorney, his spelling has little to be desired. He doesnt even use a letter head with his firm name on it.

If you need any more information from me, please contact me, as this man has to be stopped before some poor person sends him money.

This scam has been going on for years in different forms. Now with the advent of email, this is showing up more and more. The bottom line is: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
