| Snail mail solicitation of un-named beneficiary of an estate of someone with your same last name 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.|
