| Mailed letter about Inheritance. FAKE. SCAM. From UK "lawyer" but mailed from within Canada. Typewritten letter using your last name, with poor English. Claims to be underwriter with dead relative leaving unclaimed Estate in amount of US$3.8 Million which you stand to inherit. LOL. Seems he can't find anyone else alive, but found YOU! (Oh, happy day! WHAT a coincidence! ... sucker...) Wants your personal info sent to his email or fax number. (Fax number may be real and traceable) Scam. Identity Theft. Purpetrator doesn't want you to mail anything... gee, I wonder why... eh? Letter mailed from within Canada, with real-looking prepaid Canada Post stamp. Envelope may have been stolen from a legit business in Canada and used. On envelope received: P.O. Box 9808 Toronto ON M1S 5T9. Postage paid # 2002541. UK Phone number in letter is of "70- prefix" type, which is typically used to be re-directed to another number, thus hiding the purpetrators real phone number. Someone catch this guy, we have nice cold prisons in the Canadian Arctic for his type.|
