A few months ago we were approached by a genealogist research company stating that an elderly relative had died intestate.
There were three benificieries and the company would charge 30%.
We contacted the company and told them that we did not want to use their services.
Today, we received a letter with a cheque from the company stating they were distributing the assets of the estate.
They had taken 85% of the estate in fees.
The estate is a reasonable size.
We contacted the company repeatedly this morning but they have not returned our calls.
Any advice would be most appreciated.
