    I got a call today from a lawyer for a research firm telling me that I'm an hier to an estate left by someone on my grandmothers side of the family. I never knew the person who died, and my grandmother and mother have been dead for a number of years, so whatever it is falls to me.

    At this point, I have no clue how much it is. It could be enough to cover a dinner and a movie, or it could be enough to retire early, the lawyer wouldn't say. He said he was sending me the information via Fed Ex, so maybe I'll know something later tomorrow, well, later today!

    Must find a way to fall asleep!
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Sounds fishy to me, definately be cautious and like ozone said dont send them any money, did they give you a name and you are sure this person was really a family member?

    Yes, be extra careful, lots of scams these days.
    Never give them money for taxes or bank acct numbers, nothing.
    My aunt was the only one who ever left me any money. She was never married, as a kid I remember her telling us she was gonna leave her money to her nephews and nieces....damn if she didn't. Took awhile, we all had to sign stuff, about a year or so and we all got checks.

    I had an aunt (my uncles widow) that did the same thing.
    None of her relatives from the other side had been in contact for years.
    We had to hunt them down & give them their share.
    Dopeheads and ne'er-do-wells came out of the woodwork.
    It was like watching vultures fight over a carcass.

    That is sad, that is a reason to spend your money before you pass. That's my plan, the kids can get it just like I did! I like your signature! There is no excuse for being rude.! Roy

    Hmm Mark

    I would like this to be a windfall for you. You can't do anthing that that your not in control of. Be careful, sounds like story book stuff to me. We do not hear of this every day. I wish you the best. "And they lived happily ever after." Get some sleep my friend. Roy
