I am an accountant and independent underwriter; I work for one of the offshore financial institutions here in the United States.
I got your contact information (my words, but not my full name) when going through one of my deceased Clients (not the capital letter) by the name of James (my last name) a Canadian citizen who lived here in the U S for over two decades.
And has US $4.2 million that he would like me to claim etc.etc.
Letter was obviously cut and past.
I'm in Canada and the return address was P.O. Box 1000, Markham Ontario Postal Code L3P 3N3. Estate worth US $4.2 million and he had to mail it in Canada while here on business.
Area code for the direct line in Washington IN is correct but the fax area code is in Minnisota. Strange.
My brother has done a lot of our family genealogy and we have no relative named James.

Starts letter "Dear (your last name). No first name though. Then writes "I am an accountant and independent underwriting consultant, I work for one of the off shore financial institutions here in the United States. "
He needs your assistance in repatriation of $4.2 million but won't divulge the name of the financial institution.
Got your name from an old file of one of his deceased clients by the name of Carl ( your last name) who had been a Canadian citizen but lived in US for over 2 decades. Why would your name be in any relatives file you never heard of. Also if this Carl was his client for twenty years you would think he new a few things about his clients life and relatives. Carl died and he waited for a few years to contact his relative.
At end of letter asks "for your utmost privacy in this matter." Are you kidding! YOU ARE TELLING ME I CAN INHERIT $4.2M AND YOU WANT ME TO EXERCISE PRIVACY!
This powerful accountant waited to come to Canada on a business trip to personally mail this letter. I guess he doesn't want to spend the few cents on an American stamp. He must have mailed in on his coffee break.
I Googled the the address on front of env. Arbonne International Ca in Irvine Ca. Is a company that manufactures skin care products.

letter outlining you have inherited funds. I am really going to send information that doesn't even know my last name is not my first name and that they have an email at AOL though they are a accounting company. The title should read Joseph Williams Accountant not Accounting
The good thing is that must fraudsters are illiterate and easy to catch,

Received "Urgent and Personal Letter" advising me that deceased client left unclaimed life insurance policy for $4.2 million US. Would like to obtain assistance in getting funds back by using my name as beneficiary.

Letter by mail. Deceased with same last name as myself. He wants to use me to apply for unclaimed inheritance insurance worth US $ 4.2million. He asks me to send personal information some of which he already has like my address. The grammar and spelling is very poor and the quality of paper for the letter is about the cheapest you could get. The return address on the envelope is P.O. Box 1000 Markham, Ontario L3P 3N3. This appears to be a common scammers address listed on Google.

Recieve a letter in mail saying that I need to contact them because I was the only one he could find to receive a unclaimed insurance policy. I know for fact there other Cordicks out there. I suspected it was a scam and did some searching on the Internet. I shredded the letter.
