CHILLICOTHE, Mo – The Chillicothe Police Department is informing residents of a possible email scam.

The recipient of emails claiming to be from a portfolio manager of a deceased relative, is reportedly told the money of the recently deceased will be confiscated in five years if unclaimed.  The manager waits for the respondent to contact them with beneficiary information.

The police department reminds residents to report suspicious claims, including those that seem too good to be true.
