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.

    Yes, Daniel Tibor is still at it. I received my letter today with the same 24.5M offering.
    I would have thought he'd have been prosecuted by now, or just given up.

    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.

    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...

    Received a similar letter in E. Grand Forks stating Jean MaCrae, an account manager with TD Bank Canada; and a deceased relative in London, Ontario Canada has left an account with over $9.2 million USD. Apparently a scam.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
