Heir Hunters - not

Interesting new slant on an old 419 scam now circulating:


Hello Dear,

I am writing you from Heir Hunters Company in the United kingdom .

Heir Hunters probate detectives looking for distant relatives of people who have died without making a will,

the United Kingdom  government last year made over ?18m from uncliamed assets.

When people die intestate ( without a will ) and with no known relatives, their names are released by the Treasury.

Every Thursday, a list of these unclaimed estates, the Bona Vacantia ( Latin for "ownerless goods" ) is published on the Treasury Solicitor's website.

The race is then on for heir locators to track down the often distant relatives in line for a windfall. Often heir hunters pick more unusual names first, as they are easier to trace.

We came across your profile and email while searching  through genealogy database,we will be glad if you can get back to us with your full name, date of birth,

address and your direct number if it corresponds to the information

we have in our data base in order to enable us carry out necessary  verification processes and to get your claim across to you without any delay.

Heir Hunters have handed over thousands and millions of funds to heirs who have no idea of their fortune,some of them ,Holocaust  victims' estates,

whom some of their heirs tried to flee war-torn Europe,but did any of them survive to claim these fortune ?

We will gladly answer this question for you.

Very Truly Yours
Mrs.Sarah Bernstein OR Mr.James Horgan
Tell your family and friends if you think they might fall for it.
