I received a notice that I had a relative that passed away -

Customer Question

Hi there -- I received a notice that I had a relative that passed away - and that I am entitled to inherit their financial banking $ and property, etc. I was advised of a lawyer - and they have submitted me paperwork that shows I am the rightful party, etc. and then the bank says I have to pay $80K GBP due to taxes.....of course this sounds too good to be true - so before I send anything - I want to make sure this is all legit and that this so-called-bank and so-called-"Barrister" are legit -- can you assist?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Do you know the relative? I assume you were contacted by email?
If so what is the email address of the Barrister or bank after the @ symbol?

Dont give the full address as the site blocks it

I did not know the relative -- but my grandmother had like 15 siblings - so that didn't surprise me. I hear of all of these scams all the time - which is why I want to check. I did not see any RBS bank at the address
My # is(###) ###-####
