We received a proposal in the mail. John Stokovich claims to be looking for relatives of one "William [last name]" of UK who died "recently." Thinks I may be one. He claims to be able to transfer some or all of US$6.8 Million in "unclaimed [life insurance] deposit proceeds." Stokovich is the "holder" of these funds and unless he can transfer them soon to someone with same last name as a beneficiary, something he claims he can make happen, the funds will be turned over to "the Treasury Division." Whoever this individual is, he obviously does not have a good command of the English language or any understanding of how probate actually works. The return address on the envelope is P.O. Box 217, Orangeville, Ontario, L9W 2Z6. That address is not connected with any Canada Post office or outlet with that postal code. Stokovich's company address on the letterhead is 155 Buckingham Palace Road, London, UK. Apparently there is no building at that address today and I have found no record of Capital Professional Inc. The scammer asks for personal information to get things started. He insists on response only through email or fax.
