Two soap stars reportedly received letters telling them they inherited a $1 million estate from an Illinois fan who had never even met them.
Actors Kevin Brophy and Peter Barton were at first skeptical when they saw Ray Fulk left them his Broadwell farmhouse when he died last summer at the age of 71. “What’s the first thing you would think if you got a letter like that?” Fulk’s lawyer, Donald Behle, told the Illinois State Journal Register. “You’d think it was some kind of scam.”
Barton, who is most known for his role on the daytime soap “The Young and the Restless” flew to the Prairie State to check out the digs for himself. Brophy rose to fame after he was cast in the 1977 TV show “Lucan.”
A poster for the show was found in Fulk’s home.
