Tina Donovan says she received a letter from Maritime Consultant Inc. naming her as a beneficiary to an estate and knew immediately it was a scam.

She’s warning anyone receiving the letter to beware because it took her a concerted effort to convince a woman she knows in her 80s that the letter was a scam.

“Check the internet anytime you get these types of letters and you’ll see how many other people have received the same one,” Donovan says.
