You leaving out some key information. Like, for example, who the house belongs to? Was there any reason to stop the vehicle in question? At the end of the day, you need to get an attorney to look at the situation. It sounds fishy, but there's information missing.

My mother passed away 26 years ago with a will and a trust fund, so we did not have to go through probate. Apparently there was a plot of land in her name that was not included in her will.

They advise charges include, Theft by Deception, Violation of Federal Banking Regulations and Collateral check Fraud. This loan is probally 5 or 6 years old. They advise if I don't respond within 24 hours, I will be arrested. It came in my Spam mailbox. Can they do this?
