Snail mail solicitation of un-named beneficiary of an estate of someone with your same last name 
Pedro Williams
Email Address:
812 961 6543
Country of Scam:
Canada (CA)
Googled the letter envelope return address (PO Box 400 Toronto ON M5L 1B1) and found it to be for Deloitte in Toronto ON Canada. The letter states Pedro Williams (alias) works for an off shore financial institution in USA. "I got your contact information when going through and old file of my deceased client by the name of ________ (same surname as me), a Canadian citizen, passed away a few years ago." He states an unclaimed $3.8 Million estate with no will and an open beneficiary exists from his client. Wants help to repatriate those funds. Only wants to communicate via email or fax. Company address is Washington Indiana. Letter states "This letter was mailed out to you when I was in Canada for official meetings." Why would this need to be stated unless it was a scam.

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.
