The Letter States "The transaction pertains to an unclaimed "Payable On Death" ("POD") savings monetary deposit . . . with a Reputable Bank. The policy holder was one of our clients, Mr. XX [[Your last name]], who worked with Energy Company in Canada. He died in an accident in Toronto Canada over nine years ago. Since His death no one has come forward for the claim and all our efforts to locate His relatives have proved unsuccessful. 

Therefore, I ask for your consent to be in partnership with me for the the claim of this policy benefit, in view of the fact that you share the last name and nationality with the deceased.

Of course it's all 100% risk free and I'm sure all I need to do is give them power of attorney over one of my checking accounts so they can legally "share" the proceeds if I first buy a bond held in trust for MPRG or Scott Gray . . . just to make sure the funds are safe in the account."


The letter advises the recipient that 10% of the proceeds will go to charity, with the remaining 90% to be shared between the recipient and 'MPRG Law Firm'.

How Inheritance scams works


The inheritance scam involves a scammer who contacts you, claiming that you are entitled to claim a large inheritance from a distant relative or wealthy benefactor. The scammer may pose as a lawyer, banker, or other foreign official and may claim that the deceased left no other beneficiaries. They may say that you can legally claim the inheritance or that you can inherit the fortune of an unrelated wealthy person because you share the same last name.

  • The scammer will tell you that the inheritance is difficult to access due to government regulations, taxes, or bank restrictions in the country where the money is held. They will then ask you to provide personal details and pay a sum of money to claim it. The scammer may even send you seemingly legitimate legal documents to sign, such as power of attorney documents, and invite you overseas to examine documents and the money.
  • In some cases, the scammer may introduce you to a second or third scammer posing as a banker, lawyer, or tax agent to help facilitate the legal and financial aspects of the transaction.
  • If you make a payment, you will not receive the sum of the promised inheritance money, and you will not get your money back. Additionally, to prove your relationship, the scammers may ask for personal information such as identification or birth certificates, which could leave you open to identity theft.

  1. Thank you for the info about the website registration and how this type of scam works. I also searched for the "attorney" named in the letter/fax via the Canadian Bar Association. This is something that can't be faked. Of course, the search results came up empty.
