TD Canada Trust Bankrecent letter re heir potential

1
G Review updated:

Recently received. Letter from Paul Alfred Thomas, TD Canada Trust Bank, [protected]@gmail.com, stating that I might be an heir to a Joe Granke who died in 2007 in London. Is this for real or a scam? I am highly suspicious especially since the letter is not on any bank letterhead and the city is listed as Ontario, which I know is not a city.

    I received an email and although the name of the deceased is different the sender name is the same. So now there are 3 instances of this attempt to do do something that either way you look at it is must be illegal.

    I received a letter dated September 27, 2017 from the Canada Trust Bank and a Mr. Pethuel Andrew Timothee email: [email protected] saying that I had a relative that died in 2007 from a cardiac arrest in London and that I was the next of kin and this inheritance is worth $9.2 million US dollars. He goes on to say that this requires all confidently and that I need to keep this absolutely discreet until I am able to claim the funds from the bank and then once the funds are released to me it will be shared between the two of us he says.. I wish this was legit, I certainly could use this inheritance of $9.2 Million US dollars...lol.

    I have seen & heard about these scam. the question everyone should ask is: "do I have any rich relative that I knew to be named in the letter. if the answer is no, maybe, or unsure, then you are being scammed. there is no easy rich winning in life. people normally fall for these scams are due to greed. no such things as easy inheritance, gift, or nobility. stop wasteful thinking.

    We got a letter yesterday from Tomas Mendu stating a relative died in London and left 9.2 million behind. I love the statement at the end of the 4th paragraph. "Once the funds are released to you, it will be shared between the two of us." Ha ha!!! As if I would SHARE it!
    We also received the latest AARP Builletin with the Dark Web as its main article. Funny they both came the same day in the mail. I think that was no coincidence.

    Just received the same black and white letter head letter from Daniel Schad who lol works at Canada Trust. I am a IT Computer Manager and this makes me laugh but also angry at this crook.

    You can do something...report his domain to the register indicating by email or phone that he is solitating fraud under the domain name of yandex.com and you are reporting it through your abuse email or phone number. He will get his domain blacklisted or removed and have to spend another 10 bucks for a new one.

    @CarolRopp Just got one from this Daniel Tibor today. It's the exact same story I got several months ago via fax, but that was from an alleged attorney - not! This one is actually soliciting fraud - the other said he'd get 10% and donate some to charity. This one isn't even trying to pretend to be legitimate! My last name is through marriage, so even if someone did leave money, I wouldn't be entitled to it!! And I know for a fact that no one has that kind of money in our family!! Fraud, fraud, fraud!!

    It is October 2018 and we just received a letter regarding inheritance to the sum of $47, 000, 000.00!
    I was skeptical and tried finding the obituary or any information regarding the supposed deceased, which I was unable to find. After looking at the letter, aside from the lack of a proper header, there are many small spelling and grammar mistakes throughout the letter. This may not seem like an issue, but a respectable company, especially with clients trusting them with millions of dollars, will make sure that they have the proper employees and software to proofread their letters before sending them out. Seeing that this would be a very important document I feel that the sender would have requested a signature upon delivery of the letter to show that it was delivered to the proper recipient. At the bottom of the letter it should have also been personally signed by the supposed Account Manager but it is instead a copy of a signature indicating that this letter has been reproduced many times. The main red flags are: being asked to keep this matter private and the biggest giveaway is the "Account Manager" is requesting to share the funds 50/50. If this were legit you would not be entitled to "share" any of your money.
    Do not respond to this letter or get your hopes up. Report it and make these scammers known.

    Add me to the growing list of potential millionaires who has a purported relative who passed away in London, leaving behind a boatload of money to me. I received my letter earlier this month from a John Delon, who also is associated with Canada Trust. The letter I received was exactly like the others here, except there was a request near the end of the letter's body advising me to email him 1) beneficiary name and address; and 2) Direct telephone and email. This scam appears to have replaced the legendary Nigerian email scams where recipients learned that they inherited millions from a prince and all you had to do was wire a transaction fee to get your money. What I find amusing is that the letter is written in such an overly stilted fashion to appear formal and professional that it invites scrutiny.

    We received one today as well, from Mr. Daniel Tibor, account manager with TD Canada Trust bank, Ontario, Canada.
    Using the name Mr. Geo ________. Same story, died in London, cardiac arrest, account worth 9.2 million. Share this story on facebook if you can. We know that some people have probably already fallen for this scam and it's sad that someone would want to hurt good people.

    @Angry Frank I received similar letter from John Delon alleged account manager of TD Canada Trust fir 32 years. This was 9.2 million UDS unclaimed lottery winnings. They had my grandfather's name right, lived in USA but on the Canadian border and was born in Canada. Possible except the letter monitoring for 20 years and my grandfather has been dead for almost 47 years. Ghosts might purchase tickets, but to find out I must send personal information to a personal Email address. Also, Delon says Atlantic Canada; when I lived in Canada we said the Maritimes, or maybe Newfoundland. 9.2 million wold be nice, except Delon also says "it will be shared between the two of us" and I don't even know the guy.

    Honestly, it's a no-brainer this is a scam. Unfortunately, there are some who will fall sucker to it. It's printed from a laser printer for Pete's sake. Most importantly, if an alleged relative died in London, why would a fake AF bank in Canada be contacting anyone lol I get one from the same idiot monthly, about a different relative lol As far as the lame logo, it's 'TD' which is this idiot's initials backwards. Doesn't take a detective to figure that out.
