Unfold Close  INHERITANCE SCAM

You might receive a call, letter or email stating that you have been left a large fortune – but to have the funds released to you, you must transfer money to cover administrative fees and taxes. This is an inheritance scam.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR

  • Be wary of unexpected 'fortunes' as these appeals to greed are likely to be a scam
  • Look out for official-looking letters or emails; if you receive these out of the blue, be sure to research the identity of the sender first 
  • Be especially suspicious if the correspondence requests bank account details or further personal information
  • Bad grammar in a supposedly official email is a tell-tale sign of a scam

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF

  • You should ignore such communications. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is
  • Do not send money to strangers, even if they claim the money will be used to unlock a greater fortune
  • Do not transfer any money to anyone requesting it this way
  • Call the Police immediately at '999' to report the case
