Typical inheritance scam form "UK lawyer". However, they use your last name as the same as the "dead relative" to make it look legitimate. Return address is a PO box in Waterloo, ON which belongs to some insurance company. Possibly fake/stolen return address. Sent via Canada Post postal meter 1681350, which may or may not be fake as well.
Letter mailed in Canada pretending to be UK lawyer. Grammar in letter is very bad, as is in typical scam letters.

Letter received by mail with a Canadian postage meter stamp, address on top of letter 596 Davis Dr, Newmarket, ON L3Y 3P9. Letter states that there may be a 3.2M inheritance and we are to confirm our: name, address, occupation, phone/fax, email address and reference number from letter. George Newman states that he is an accountant and banker by profession and works for one of the financial institutions in Canada. The english used in the letter has a few errors. It says not to mail any documents for "security reasons", most probably because the address is not theirs. The signature on the letter does not look like "George Newman" . The whole thing looks like a scam and reads like a scam.

An "Estate Settlement Letter" states that a deceased client in the UK has left US$3.8 Million. Same last name as mine. He requests that I send him all my contact information and he'll tell me how to process a claim. UK return address, but the letter to me was sent from Waterloo Ontario. Grammar and typing errors in the letter.
