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.

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.
