This is the a letter I received from an individual. What is scary is that I know this is a scam and the person is using the photo identity of a well known British public figure.

Elizabeth Hill contacted me, and ask if I would consider helping her s her dying wish to distribute her and her husbands money to widow`s and maybe help the poor. She gave me her lawyers name after a few messages between us. I look up information from my phone really thought I had found this Lawyer, He in turn gave me the name of a bank and emails for it is Scotiabank 22 Finsbury Square London England ECA2 1BB United Kingdom Tel +44-702-406-2688 email is [email protected] or [email protected] They have not taken any money from me, but I stupidly send them a copy of my Drivers license. I hope this will keep someone else from losing anything.

Bogus inheritance

  • Jul 7, 2016
  • Monetary Loss: $0
Letter received on TD Canada Trust letterhead but the envelope, mailed from Canada, says "Dell" with no actual return address. Says a presumed relative dies 10 years ago with $9.2 million in a bank account which has gone unclaimed and the sender will help me act as a legit heir if we can split the money once the funds are released.
