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.

Just received a letter similar to all of those mentioned in the comments. Must act fast so that 9.2 million dollars can be claimed and split with the writer, Jean Macrae 🙄

2022 and this letter is still being sent out! The weirdest part to me was that the envelope was printed with “Voila By sobeys” in the return address area. A quick search showed that it’s a grocery store in Canada.

Received the same letter 2 weeks ago. The name on the envelope was not even close to my name! Obvious scam. This looked more professional than the "Spanish Letter" i received a few years ago. However, the scammer didn't even bother to use a color laser printer as the bank logo was in black, rather than the real bank logo which is in green.

I am going up to Toronto in a few weeks to visit with a friend who worked for Scotia Bank until he retired. I'm sure he will get a kick out of it.

As they say, you can't cheat an honest man!

My wife just received a letter from Mr. Daniel Tibor with a relative that died in 2012 of a cardiac arrest. He too had USD 9.2 million in his estate. Is a Canadian or US agency looking into this guy?

Good to see that this scam still has 'legs' ...

I received a letter yesterday (Feb 2022) from "TD Canada Trust." Same basic details: someone with my last name died in London, Ontario in 2012 this time, leaving $9.2M USD. Sent with a Canada Postes metered mail stamp. Low grade copy, skimps on ink. Etc. The contact, Mr. Matias Edison, has an email address that leads to a parked domain on GoDaddy.com (figures). Two funny details:

- The letter is 100% black + white; they didn't even bother to make the TD logo green.

- There is a faint outline of *another* similar letter imprinted into the sheet of paper, upside down!

The RCMPs should be investigating: there are a lot of wealthy, lonely American ex-pats dying in London, Ontario! ;-)

My husband received one today almost identical to yours. It was Canada Post too.

Ok here is the scam if you get a letter. Regardless it will start off someone died and some lawyer is trying to reach you because woohoo there is a boat load of money with your name on it. You do the happy dance and email them back saying yes yes yes show me the money. The next step will be that they will email you back saying that they are serious and send you all kinds of fake documents, maybe a passport showing that they are legit (but if you do a google image search you can find the fake image as someone else). But hell you want your money so you go forward and reply to the mail with what ever information they are asking for. Next is the scam. To get the process started they will need money. How much depends on the scammer. They will say to do the documents and what ever else is needed you will need to send them funds which they will repay you once you get the money and they will pay you out of there split. I stopped dealing with them after that part but I'm guessing you send the money wait by your mailbox for that big check everyday wondering where your money is at.

This is so sad! I was already making plans thinking that my husband was a millionaire! LOL 🤪😭🤣

Well, I will add my two cents. I just received a Notice by mail today March 9, 2021, from Larry Wolf claiming that I am the inheritor of a 9, 764 million Dollar from a relative with the same last name as mine who died in London from Cardiac Arrest back in 2010. The Letter is from a Canada Trust Bank. Would be nice if it were true, but everyone please be careful, and do not provide any of your information to these scam solicitations. Hopefully, they'll locate and prosecute these scammers.

Jun 12, 2021 8:19 pm

Same letter came to me today... but it was for a relative with my married name - so that was a big red-flag right away since the person would've been my husband's relative - not mine. After I read the first paragraph, I knew it was a scam. Can't believe people actually fall for this. Sad.

I received the same letter from a Daniel Tibor saying I am the heir to 24.5 Million USD. My last name is through marriage, and there a LOT of legitimate relatives he could have contacted. SCAM if I ever saw one.

I received my letter at my office today. Said I was the next of kin of a George Raby. My last name is through marriage so surely there are many next of kin ahead of me including my husband, my children, my sister-in-law, her children, and all of their cousins who are offspring of family members older than my father-in-law! It's a shame that there are innocent people that fall for these scams! It's too bad. I could do a lot of good with $9.2 million USD!

My husband received a similar letter today from a Steve Anderson. The circumstances of death have changed to a “ghastly car crash” and the amount of cash in his bank account had gone up to $47, 500, 000.00! I could tell by reading the letter that English is not this person’s first language. Beware.

I received a letter from a Jean Macrae. Works at TD BAnk canada, 9.2 million inheritance from someone I’ve never heard of. He wants to split the money. He even send a death certificate. Now he just wants me to send a letter claiming the money to the bank along with the death cert and a copy of my driver’s license. I just can’t figure out where the scam comes in- he hasn’t asked for money.

Getting your driver's license may be enough for the scam. Name, Date of Birth, valid address, photo. Many places will allow you to open an account or verify your identity by electronically sending a photo of your ID. Scammers don't always have to ask for money if you give them the "key" to your identity.

Why won't anyone just go along with the letter's instructions so that one of us here on this blog can legitimately say that, "yes, it was a scam and these so-called managers asked me to send $5000 for processing fee of this transaction, etc...". then at least one of us can really say it is a scam, and these people are just wanting to score money from innocent victims like us. Dare, anyone? At least one of us here can say what this scam is all about (if this is a scam). What if none of these managers want money from us, but, instead, they just want a piece of the action- and as long as the split is fair, and everyone is happy, right? But beware, if these managers start asking for money, then that's when you can say "HELL NO!" and simply run. Then one of us can complete the ending of this suspicious scam...

R
Mar 12, 2021 6:54 am

First, IF it were legitimate and only "want a piece of the action" that would be fraud and put everyone on the hook for major prison time. In Texas, that dollar amount would put you in First degree felony charges, not to mention federal charges. Again, IF it were true, but it is not. Second point, add up the number of people reporting this in this thread alone and multiply that by the dollar amount offered. Seem outlandish yet?

Your comments are leading me to think you are hoping that this may be something leading to money. It's not. There's no such thing, prosecutors all over the country have put out warnings for this very scam. At its worst, responding to this will lead to losing money or having your identity stolen. At best, responding will confirm to the scammer that your contact info is legitimate and can be sold to other scammers.

If it where only true =( Letter address in "Markham ON L3R OX1"

I have just received the spoofing letter also dated August 8, 2019.
The letter is supposedly from TD Canadian trust bank authored by Mr. Daniel Tibor.
This is the second letter I've received the first was several years ago but it was the same scheme. I hope that TD Canadian trust bank is aware of this and is doing what ever they can to stop this fantasy.

I got one yesterday. I decided to have some fun with the scammer and sent an e-mail to his address but, alas, it no longer is a valid address.

Check out the Youtube videos by James Veitch to see the potential for playing with these fools. If more folks handled these situations like he does, there would be fewer scammers.

Jul 09, 2019 6:52 am

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.
