As we had mentioned in our last post, this post captures the first of our evidential work on Inheritance Scams.

In our last post, we had mentioned how even qualified individuals have had fallen for such scams, and here is one example where an Iowa lawyer fell for such a scam.

This particular case study revolves around Robert Allan Wright Jr., who had ethical issues that was capitalized by scam artists.
(Not to be confused with the Wright brothers, who were instrumental in the invention of modern aeroplanes or the distinguished Iowa civil rights lawyer, Robert Allan Wright Sr.),

As you would have noticed, here is another example for, "What is in the name", and the need to avoid generalizations based on names.

For more about this case, please read below.

Next, let us ask what could be the primary reason for a person to become a victim to such scams?

Con artists are good at feeding to the human elements of greed and need, and obviously, when millions of easy money are added to the equation, then intrinsic human elements would start imagining and visualizing relations, out of the blue that were non-existent before.

We will see several such references as presented below on this topic from various angles throughout this week in order to prevent such scams from happening in the future.
