Sheriff’s department warns of possible scam

The Kern County Sheriff’s Department is warning residents of a possible scam circulating through the county, and they discovered it through a direct contact.

In a news release, Sheriff’s officials said a member of the department received a correspondence letter from an apparent law firm from London, England.

The letter indicates the firm represents an individual from the United States who passed away and left a large life insurance policy which has been unclaimed. The letter also indicates the firm has been unable to locate possible relatives who are beneficiaries of the policy, so are contacting people in the United States with the same last name as the decedent to move forward with processing the policy.

In the letter, the law firm indicates they will split the money distributed per the life insurance policy with the letter recipient. The letter asks the recipient to contact the law firm immediately to provide additional information so the policy can be processed, and provides a contact email address and phone number.

The department asks for those who receive a similar letter, or believe you have been targeted in a potential scam, please report it to the Sheriff’s Office at 661-861-3110.
