Supposed relative with same last name as recipient died intestate with $3.8 million U.S. in a bank account. The funds need to be claimed within ten years and the scammer offers to handle the transfer of funds with the assistance of a notary to the recipient. The recipient is assured to qualify to receive the funds, all legal. Of course, the offer must remain confidential with no third party involvement with contact to be made strictly by telephone or email.
The envelope was mailed from a Canadian address: 700 University Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5G 0A1.
A web check immediately revealed a number of similar attempts by the same party with the same MO.
I did not engage the sender in any way.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
