  1. Recently a personal friend of mine was awarded an inheritance as the sole beneficiary. He has also been in contact with the person who has made him the beneficiary. She is in the hospital, dying. I do not know if she is part of the scam, or if she is also being scammed somehow.
    He has just been instructed by Mr Mark Martins to stay off face book and his email and not communicate with his friend who left the money unless it is directly on the phone.
    He will not listen to me about this being a scam.

  2. I do not know what to do! My dear friend is being scammed by this so called Mark Martins, I even emailed him this page from another email, he thought it was a form to fill out. He will not even comprehend what he is reading.

    1. We are unable to provide assistance on a personal basis apart from commenting that from your brief description it does sound like one of the classic scams. There is forum we would recommend, Although not specifically for victims, it is quite active and hopefully someone will be able to provide further advice.
