I was given a letter from a police officer with his face completely cover and no I D. THIS OFFICES HANDED ME A BROWN envelope with no written words on it. I opened the door to the police man where he stood sideways and handed me the envelope saying this is from your mum. He then walk straight away. I was in utter shock as I thought something had happened to my husband or daughter. I have all this on cctv.

I'm reviewing your question and will revert back to you shortly. Please do not wait on line for a response, you will receive an email notification from JustAnswer to tell you that I have sent a reply.

Expert:  Peter Collins replied 6 days ago.

What is your concern here - is it whether the will is valid or not? Or the conduct of the person claiming to be a police officer?

Does the will set out your late mother's wishes as you anticipated, or have things changed as a result? Do you expect fraud?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
I think it fraud, the policeman who gave me this letter without any written on it, he knew what he was doing. I have been trying to send the copy but I don't know how to do it.
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
I can't afford that as I'm disabled and it's not pay day yet. I don't know how to send photos of the will
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
He is an officer of bsthgate police station. He has been identified by 3 officers. Because he was hiding his face im petrified to go out

I have been trying to send you photos of the letter but when I put in your address it doesn't show up

You can upload photos via the paperclip or file symbol.

Can you confirm where you are based? You are in the UK section under general law - but I think you may be from Scotland?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
Sorry Scotland

I'm still trying to send photos

I see. As you are in Scotland I have to opt out for a Scots law colleague to assist. They will pick this up soon for you I'm sure. Kind regards, Peter
