Sick scammers pretend to be the Queen in most unconvincing con you’ve ever see. The message claims the Queen isn’t really dead, but has been sent to a deserted island by Charles so he could claim the throne. Apparently, ‘the Queen’ can’t get hold of her ‘royal money’ so needs the recipient of the m...

UK notes show the monarch's head. I can imagine scammers taking "obsolete" notes off victims for replacement. As you say, this could be a payment delaying modality.

They gave the reseller a week to respond, then zapped it. I have my suspicions about the...

I had the fake website shut down, but googling on elements of it turned up a few dozen clones. Rather than having them closed, I wonder if a better approach would be to ask the hosts to lock them and replace the contents with a single page explaining it's a scam, as will be any other website address...
