We received a letter stating that a supposed relative of my husband had died (gave the name of Gordon Behnka) and his estate had not been settled, and this person had researched names in Canada trying to find family members to be able to disperse the funds that were being held. (US$6.8 million). We needed to contact him to finalize the will.

The miss spellings and grammar mistakes led us to believe that this was a scam. There is no record that I could find of this firm in London UK existing, although there is a firm in Australia with this name.

The address appearing on the letter head is as follows: J. Hamilton and Associates, 63 Cheapside, London, UK, EC2V 6BP.
