"Barrister Charles Morgan" has moved to Yandex.com in the latest scam using that name.

It's been modified from the advance fee fraud e-mails that we are used to and someone has been to writing lessons.

It starts with an unusual approach, then moves into the same technique as we've seen from this name dozens of times over many years.

Oh, and he uses UN.ORG as the "from" address. Cheeky.

Originates from (a Microsoft server which is widely reported as a vehicle for spam since November 2021).

Hello, [target's e-mail address]

I am largely aware of the very high and alarming rate of fraud
going on around the whole world and a message like this will
definitely bring up thoughts into the mind of anybody about the
veracity of the information below and knowing that I just located
you and we haven't really met each other before now.

I am very sorry for intruding.I am contacting you because you
share the same last name with a deceased client of mine who died
a few years ago. He left behind huge bank deposits with no will
or testament. The bank has requested that I present any of his
relatives to claim his money otherwise it will be declared as
unclaimed and confiscated.

It is my plan therefore to present you to the bank as a relative
of my late client so that his deposit can be transferred to you
legally by virtue of the fact that you share the same last name
with him. I am able to make this presentation possible and will
guide you all the way until his funds are released to you. We
shall be sharing the proceeds of this claim equally if you accept
to work with me. I will share more details with you upon your
positive response to my email. I hope to hear from you soon.

Best Wishes,

Bar.Charles Morgan


In the past, he has referred to himself as "Barrister" which, one assumes, is why he puts "Bar".

The "from" address clearly doesn't exist.

He wants to engage his victim in a fraud.

Yeah, right.
