    Hmm Mark

    Sometimes the reason people can't sleep is that their mind is not at ease. My wife has been wanting to get on to me for two days. No pease of mind for me! Enjoy while it's good.

    Well, I got the letter today, Fed Ex early delivery.
    It isn't a scam, at least not to steal money I already have.

    I still don't know who died, or how much money is potentially involved, there is some real serious old school money floating around in some of the branches of my family tree though. Unfortunatly my branch of the family tree never got much sun.

    The guy that contacted me is with a "forensic geneology" firm. They say they will handle all the legal end of things, I just have to sign over to them the authority to do so. No money is involved from me, they get paid from any dispersment that I may get.

    Sounds good, but here is the kicker. They keep 2/5 of whatever I get. I guess they think saying 2/5 sounds better than saying they get 40%!

    Don't worry, I ain't signing nuthin till I talk to my lawyer. Now I just have to find someone to be my lawyer.

    I don't want to be one of those long lost relatives that start popping out of the woodwork with lawyers when someone dies, but hey, I ain't turnin down free money if they want to track me down to give it to me...

    I sincerely hope this works in your favor but, when I read this my "BS alarm" went off. It doesn't sound right. Make sure it's a GOOD attorney.
