Inheritance from a distant relative
These fraudsters often contact people with unusual surnames to increase credibility. They then offer you to pay an administration fee in order to receive your inheritance.
Advice regarding fraudulent inheritance letters
- Be careful. If a phone call seems uncomfortable – hang up. Do not answer an offer like this if it shows up in your inbox or mail.
- Do not send any money, even if you are guaranteed to receive a whole lot more money in return.
- Do not give out your personal financial information, i.e. your bank account details.
