First Street Law Firm Canada Scam - 778-358-763 British Columbia

Received fax from 778-358-7635 claiming to be a First Street Law Firm Canada . Using a British Columbia fax number and a Toronto personal phone number. Also announced 13,030,000 in "United States Dollars" for a deceased resident of Canada.

It amazes how the exchange rate came up with an even number and what worker would have 16,000,000 CN$ in life insurance? The letter goes on to state if not claimed, the money "must be turned over to the property division of the state after 10 years".

Look most Americans know little about Canada but surely most know Canada is divided into provinces not states.

    I received a fax this morning. I work for a Neurosurgery clinic in Florida and this fax is addressed to one of my surgeons as he apparently shares the same last name of the deceased. This time it's from Leaf Legal Firm, Barrister & Solicitors in Canada and signed by Martin Novello, Attorney at Law.

    Much of the details are the same as the others listed here.

    Does anyone fall for this?

    2 faxes today moments apart almost same letter, different letter head (Ajax Law Firm & Duncan, Williamson, & Partners, LLP), both from supposed Canada lawyers stating I had a dead relative (2 different dead relatives names) that had left me either $11,550,300 or $13,030,00). Sent from fax numbers ( 164720020 and 17783587635). I have had this happen countless times over the last few years. It's so wasteful and annoying.

    I received this letter today - from Lee Franco of Cruz Law in Winnepeg, Canada

    I received one using Cruz Law Office in Winnipeg. Also from a Phillip Mann, supposed partner in said law firm.

    The hook; the deceased with the 13,030,000 Life Insurance policy has the same last name as me... and since no living relatives... he'll take care of the paperwork and we'll scam our way to millions.

    Feel bad for the suckers they pull in to give their personal info. They are the only ones being scammed here.

    received one using Frasier Law firm as cover . This has scam written all over it .

    I just got the new version of this scam today. Looks like they're now sending this using the name of a different established law firm: Eagle Law Firm. Seems to be using the same phone number, but using the actual fax number email and website for Eagle Law in the falsified letterhead.

    Regarding Phillip Mann. I received the same faxed letter 2 days ago showing the person had died in Toronto, it had the same last name as mine, He sent me his death certificate and his insurance policy. the narrative is the same, 10% to charity and 90% split . He is using 2 different addresses and phone numbers . He also shows that he works for 2 different law firms. one at First Street Law and one at Fraser Law firm .

    Also received a fax from this number claiming to be Eagle Law Firm in Flin Flon, Manitoba. The phone number listed 204-650-0191 is not the correct number for the law firm even though the area code is correct for Manitoba. Also claims a "monetary deposit of $13,030,00 USD is deposited with a Reputable Bank"
