Beware of heir hunting scammers

I have received an email from Kasia Oberc of Fraser and Fraser (www.lostkin.co.uk/Default.aspx), one of the firms featured in the Heir Hunters TV series, asking if I could direct readers to an email scam doing the rounds just now from unscrupulous sources claiming to be contacting people on their behalf.

The full announcement from the firm is available to read at www.lostkin.co.uk/Pages/Heir_Hunters_issue_warning_of_e-mail_scams.aspx - things to be aware of include the fact that email is rarely used to contact potential legacy beneficiaries, and avoid messages with 0845 contact numbers, which the company does not use.

(With thanks to Kasia)
