The letter advised that a dormant bank account in Canada was worth $6.9 million dollars and the resident was listed as the sole beneficiary. The resident quickly recognized the mailing and letter as a scam and no personal information was sent. This is a reminder to never exchange personal information over the telephone or in writing from sources unknown to you. Please contact the Manville Police Department with any questions or concerns.
