Sheriff’s Department Issues Warning About Scam Letter

The Berrien County Sheriff’s Department is warning everyone about the latest scam going around. This week, it put out notice about a letter that purports to be from an account manager with TD Trust Bank in Canada. The letter states that a person with the same last name as the recipient has passed away and the bank is looking for a next of kin. It then says the supposedly-deceased person had a large amount of money and the letter’s recipient can receive it by responding with an e-mail. Berrien County Sheriff Paul Bailey advises everyone to not fall for this scam, noting all a crook needs to bombard you with more scams is your contact information. If the letter shows up at your house, tear it up.
