Dulwich Gallery

I got a standard "next of kin" scam mail with the following signature

KAYCEE OZETO QC
PATRICK KELLY
SENIOR PARTNER
Linda and Kaycee Associates
DULWICH GALLERY
GALLERY ROAD, DULWICH VILLAGE,
LONDON SE21 7AD
RC:122132
WWW.DULWICHPICTUREGALLERY.ORG.UK

Now, why do scammers believe that Dulwich Picture Gallery (a legitimate London institution whose job is to show valuable pictures to the public, not to deal with wills and look for long-lost heirs) should lend credence to their mails? :o It's beyond me.

It kinda serves two purposes....to try and gain gain credibility....oh it's from a museum, it must be real!

And then, there's the other aspect, since this domain is now appearing in spam, the domain will likely land across various spam domain blocklists....and the gallery staff will be going cuckoo trying to figure out where and why... :(
