Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. If this was an unsolicited approach then it is almost certainly a scam. Further more the filing fee for grant of probate for a deceased person is about £200 and no where near £800. There is a police site dedicated to combating fraud in the UK www.actionfraud.police.uk/ - so I would certainly complain to the police. Is this individual a solicitor or lawyer? Kind regards AJ
