CHILLICOTHE, Mo. – On Thursday, November 15, Chillicothe Police were advised by a citizen of a scam they had received through the mail.

The citizen received a letter from a “bank”. The letter states an account holder recently died and had the same last name as the citizen who received the letter. It further states for the citizen to contact the bank to retrieve the remaining funds in the account of the deceased account holder.

The letter states for the citizen to contact the employee through a personal email account and not a work related email and the citizen and employee would then split the remaining substantial funds.

This is a SCAM.
