Type of a scam Phishing
A letter was sent to my residence asking me to contact to husband’s information by fax or phone. I asked my niece to contact this person Gloria Alves. She emailed Gloria asking for instructions she would give to me. At the same time, my niece did some research and found an article about a scam utilizing the same wording from the letter. I want to report this as I am a kupuna, on a very low fixed income and not even in the phone book. Please alert our kupunas of this so no one is able to take from our kupunas.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
40%Received a letter via postal mail stating that someone with my last name was deceased and this financial institution held their money and waited for someone from the family to claim it; however, that hasn’t happened. So in their search for relatives, there are forms to be filled out (I haven’t and won’t do that), in order to qualify for these substantial funds. The letter states that "upon acceptance to cooperate, 40% will go to me, 50% for this executor, and 10% will go to any acceptable charity organization in Spain or my country.
