Dankzij mijn hulp is dit artikel over All Great Dealz (agressieve telefonische verkoop) tot stand gekomen

28 juni 2017 nam journalist Joris Zwetsloot contact met mij op i.v.m. de activiteiten van All Great Dealz, ik heb hem vervolgens geholpen. Dankzij mijn hulp is dit artikel in de Volkskrant tot stand gekomen.

de Volkskrant 11 juli 2017
https://www.volkskrant.nl/economie/betaal-geen-incasso-als-u-niets-heeft-besteld~a4505612/


Betaal geen incasso als u niets heeft besteld

All Great Dealz slijt via omslachtige technieken bonnen voor vakanties

De klacht: Via 'agressieve' verkooptelefoontjes slijt All Great Dealz tegoedbonnen voor vakanties. Wie de bonnen laat opsturen, maar geen gebruikmaakt van het aanbod, wordt 'geïntimideerd' door de debiteurenafdeling van het bedrijf.

Citaat uit het artikel:
"Een woordvoerder van de Consumentenbond twijfelt of het bedrijf überhaupt vakanties verkoopt of dat zij hun verdienmodel baseren op incasso's. 'Het ergste is nog dat sommige mensen van schrik maar gewoon betalen.'"
Einde citaat.

Vreemde mails ontvangen van een Solicitor at Law die contact met mij wil over de vrijgave van een "erfenis"

Sinds 06 juli 2017 heb ik een aantal vreemde mails ontvangen van een Solicitor at Law, die contact met mij wil over de "nalatenschap" van iemand met de naam Ayman Hartholt (volgens het verhaal overleden in 2004). Als die meneer met de naam "Aaron Shaw" denkt dat ik hem ga bellen dan vergist hij zich. Op mijn vraag naar het adres van zijn kantoor krijg ik geen antwoord.

Wie is er nog meer benaderd door solicitor at law Aaron Shaw over een overleden "familielid" ?

Dear Gerrit,

Thank you for your return email. I run a legal firm in partnership. I am the legal representative to my late client who happens to bear same last name as yours.

I am contacting you on professional consideration to invite your partnership in facilitating the release of my late client’s estates and most especially his invested funds. My late client passed in Indonesia during a holiday trip with his immediate family in December 2004. My late client was involved in oil brokerage and vessel chatter dealings. He had serious of business contacts spanning across Europe and Asia. He was 54 at the time of his death alongside his wife and only daughter.

My client made an investment involving a sum of $15million U.S. dollars, initial deposit of funds set aside for his business in an investment account with a commercial bank since 2001. I was contacted by the bank after the death of my late client to locate members of his extended family who could be beneficiaries to his abandoned personal assets. More so, I have been notified in the past months on the bank’s proceedings to turn the investment balance to the Government in pursuant of the existing laws. This is because it is assumed that no member of my late client’s extended family is alive.

After exhaustive search through the embassy and on professional consideration, I engaged a wide search to locate a credible person with this last name, so as to give us the stands to put-in an application for the release of these funds. I have contacted you on professional consideration as I know that you will be able to make this claim successfully and legitimately without any form of complications. I am here saying that the procedure to be adopted in pursuing this claim will be legitimate and will not offend the law. All I ask is for you to go about this claim as I will advice.

I propose that 45% of the entire sum will accrue to you at the conclusion of this deal, in so far as I do not incur further expenses; and this will be after deduction of 5% which will be set aside for reimbursement of expenses we would incur in the course of this transaction.

I will appreciate verbal communication with you so we can discuss in details. You may call me on 44 1729 292044. Please advice on the preferred telephone number and the best time to call you.

Regards,
Aaron Shaw.

Dear Aaron.

I am doing quite well, only just a little bit pain in the neck.
Can you tell me what the claim (application for the release of these funds) you are writing me about, could mean to me?
I am not sure if I understand what you have send me, this is the first time a solicitor at law contacts me about an estate of someone who died in 2004 and who I don't know.
And do I have to contact a lawyer in the Netherlands to contact you, or is contact between you and me (by mail / letter) enough to handle it all?

Greetings Gerrit Hartholt the Netherlands.

Dear Gerrit,

I have contacted you to have you represent as a distant relative to my late client so as to give us a legal base to file claim for my late client's invested funds. I understand that you may not know my late client in person before contacting you.

Putting the circumstances surrounding my late client's estates in view, it is best that we do not get third parties involved, and that includes a different lawyer. We are well able to successfully make this claim without getting other parties involved. I consider it important to have a voice with this communication. Let me know how and when to call you. I am sending you more detailed information on my late client's personality and the standards of this transaction.

I have contacted you to have you represent as a distant relative to my late client, so I can present you as a beneficiary to his invested funds. I know you may not know my client or have a known relationship with him. My contact to you is on the professional consideration as I know that in partnership with you, we will successfully secure the release of the estates following the laid standards for claim situation as this. We will only engage standards applicable with circumstances of intestacy as this. The difference being how I have contacted you; and this inform the reason we must maintain this transaction in utmost confidence and ensure that no third party is allowed access to information of this transaction. This way we will be sure that no room is left for interference.

Before I proceed in further details, I need you to understand that it is legally permitted for distant relatives to file claim to a decedent's estates in situation of intestacy as this (where no legal will exists) and the decedent have no surviving immediate family members. In circumstances as this, relatives outside the immediate family can file a claim against the estates. In the absence of close relatives, the legal representative to the deceased can notify distant relatives up to fourth generation cousins of their rights to lay claim to the estates.

I have contacted you to invite your partnership in facilitating the release of funds sincerely belonging to my late client. My email to you was written as a Matter of last resort because of the circumstances surrounding my late client's estates.

Mr. Ayman Hartholt was a business man who lived in the U.K; he had oil sales brokerage dealings around Europe and Asia. My late client was into oil deal negotiation and vessel chatter brokerage. He died December 26, 2004 in Indonesia during a holiday trip with his family. My late client travelled on a holiday with his family and they were lodged in a guest house along the coast when the December 2004 ocean surge happened. My late client was 54 at the time of his death alongside his wife 46 and their only daughter 11. My late client lived most of his years in the U.K, but travelled often.  I served as his private attorney for the last eight years preceding his death and I had known the family a little while before then. I never met his father, but I knew him to be the late Mr. Cornelius Hartholt who died in Belgium. My late client was born July 21st 1950. The wife's name was Amber Hartholt - born July 3rd 1958. Their daughter's name was Ana - born May 16th 1993.

I contacted you because after the death of my late client I was informed by the financial institution to search for members of his family, related especially consanguineous relationship who could represented as managers or trustees to his invested funds.

The investment was made as funds set aside for his business. It was an initial deposit of U.S$15 million U.S. dollars invested in 2001 at a yearly interest rate of 7%.

We have recently received tips on the bank’s intention and a timeline ultimatum being currently considered. This is coming after the preliminary efforts of search to reach members of my late client’s extended family. The estates will be liquidated and shared between the bank and the Government if the timeline is elapsed as it would be considered that there exist no surviving relative. It might as well interest you to know that information also reached us that some key staff members of the bank have been working on ways to divert the funds in their selfish interest on the excuse that no surviving relative exists. My proposition is for you to stand in the position of a third generation cousin to my late client. This way I am able to clear your person for benefit to the estates.

I have proposed that 45% of the entire sum released will accrue to you at the conclusion of this transaction, in so far as I do not incur further expenses. 5% of the entire sum released will be set aside for reimbursement of expenses we will incur individually in the course of this transaction. What is left of the 5% we will split 50% to each of us. The balance of 50% left of the entire amount released will accrue to me to enable me cover for the cost I have incurred over the past nine years in efforts to protect my late client’s estates and also for me to be compensated for my time and effort.

The process of this transaction will involve a formal application for the release of the invested funds. I know that  in partnership with you we will be able to make this claim successfully because of your last name which is the same as that of my late client's. Note that it is my responsibility as the legal representative to establish the credibility of the beneficiary(ies) in a situation of intestacy as this. This is the basis for this transaction.

I consider it best that we do not involve third parties in this process. I will prepare a letter with which we will open communication with the bank when we have established understanding.

Your involvement will be for you to stand in as a distant relative to my late client and I will guide you through on how we will initiate a formal application and all subsequent correspondence with the bank. You will maintain a relationship with Mr. Hartholt, until we successfully get approval for legal clearance in your favor. I have original copy of the investment document and only the bank have secondary copy of this document which makes it impossible for any other person to put up claims either at this time or in the future.

I have attached copy of my late client’s death certificate to this email for your information and also copy of my international passport data page for better acquaintanceship. I will send copy of the investment document to you as we establish understanding. The investment document shows full information on the bank and it important that I am sure of your stand before releasing the copy.

Let me know a bit on your side of the family name. This will be needed for me to draft a connection between yourself and my late client that will validate your position for benefit. I wait to receive a return email.

Regards,

Aaron.

Dear Aaron.

Thanks for all the information and documents.

The family name Hartholt originates as far as I know from the year 1811, this is because everybody in the Netherlands had to choose a lastname (order of the government). Someone in the north of the Netherlands (living near Groningen) chose the name Hartholt (Dutch dialect for Hard Wood). From then on the familiy with the last name Hartholt grows steadily and gets branches. From which branch of the family Ayman Gerald Hartholt originates I don't know, and it is difficult for me to find that out, genealogy is not my expertise and this also because Ayman lived not in the Netherlands.

If I want to send you a letter with more information, what address can I send this letter to?

Greetings Gerrit Hartholt the Netherlands.

Moving forward, I should know you and your side of the family name. This will help me present a coherent connection between yourself and my late client that will validate your stand for benefit. Send me brief information on your side of the family. Names and dates of birth where possible, of persons with this last name - your parents, uncles and aunties with this last name. Also I should know you more in person . We will work with information you provide and stand on same in the order.

Dear Aaron.

I also find it important to have at a certain point a voice with this communication.
Thank you for keeping me informed about the steps you are preparing, and the letter you are preparing about filing a claim with the bank.

About the information of my family, such as names and dates of birth from my parents, uncles and aunties with the last name Hartholt, and information about me personal, I would like to send you that information to you personal in a letter and not by mail. So please let me know what's the address of your office.

If it's possible for you please let me also know in which town Ayman Hartholt lived in the U.K. with his familiy and where he had his residence, before he deceased in the ocean surge december 2004 in Indonesia.

Dear Aaron.

Thank you for the info and the address. Because my family is quite large (my father has 7 brothers and sisters), it wil take me a couple of days before I can send the letter abroad.
Is it okay if I mention the name of your late client Ayman Hartholt when I contact my family (uncles and aunts etcetera) when I contact them for the requested information, or is it not okay?

Best wishes.

Dear Johachim Nestles.

Thank you for answering my question so quick, because of some holiday activities I wasn't able to respond to your answer sooner.

Would you mind asking the associate Aaron Shaw from Ephil Associates, to send me a mail from an Ephil Associates emailadres to proof that he is the one that has contacted me. Preferred headline of that mail 'Confirm contact'.

When it comes to contact with people I don't know and there is money involved (perhaps quite a lot of money), I am used to check and double check.
