Typewritten letter using your last name, with poor English. Claims to be underwriter with dead relative leaving unclaimed Estate in amount of US$3.8 Million which you stand to inherit. LOL. Seems he can't find anyone else alive, but found YOU! (Oh, happy day! WHAT a coincidence! ... sucker...) Wants your personal info sent to his email or fax number. (Fax number may be real and traceable) Scam. Identity Theft. Purpetrator doesn't want you to mail anything... gee, I wonder why... eh? Letter mailed from within Canada, with real-looking prepaid Canada Post stamp. Envelope may have been stolen from a legit business in Canada and used. On envelope received: P.O. Box 9808 Toronto ON M1S 5T9. Postage paid # 2002541. UK Phone number in letter is of "70- prefix" type, which is typically used to be re-directed to another number, thus hiding the purpetrators real phone number. Someone catch this guy, we have nice cold prisons in the Canadian Arctic for his type.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
