The Chillicothe Police Department is informing the public of an email scam.
A subject emails the victim and identifies themselves as a “portfolio manager” to a deceased relative. The manager claims to have made investment decisions on behalf of the deceased in the form of shares, bonds, and other securities. The manager claims in accordance with Eritrea Financial Regulatory Board, the deceased, client’s money, which could vary in range, would be confiscated in five years if unclaimed. The manager then waits for you to contact them as the legal beneficiary.
As always, the Police Department would like to remind it’s citizens to investigate any claims that seem too good to be true or suspicious.
