LETHBRIDGE: Regional Police warn about another scam. This time, it's a phony inheritance
In the past two weeks, at least three area businesses received faxes from
south Africa, in which the writer claims to be a bank officer trying to locate
the rightful owner of an inheritance. The fax asks for personal information in
order to name a next-of-kin, so that millions of dollars belonging to a deceased
Canadian can be liquidated and a portion sent out.
Similar letters have been faxed to businesses and organizations around
Canada and the U-S. So far, there are no local victims but police remind you to
be wary of unsolicited communications.
