I figured this in part because I actually got my copy of the Chicago Sun-Times this morning, for a change, and for whatever reason, eventually paged through to the classifieds on page 50, where this was lying in wait for me:
I, Robinson, Donald-Eugene, a living man, hereby give Public Notice of my Status as the beneficiary /beneficial owner of the estate a.k.a. "DONALD EUGENE ROBINSON" and all res/corpus / property titled in said name. Said estate was organized under the laws of The State of Kansas, was established on May 23, 1944 in Iola, Kansas and has a birth record certificate number of 1 9476. Anyone wishing to assert a claim, right, title or interest in said estate must send it along with certified evidence supporting same via mail to 1814 County Road 5710 Devine, Texas or email to [redacted] no later than thirty-five days from 1st day of running of ad. My claim and supporting affidavits are on public record for inspection at Lamar County Georgia, Superior Record Recorded January 3, 2017 at BPA Book 68, pages 402.
6/22, 6/29, 7/6/17 #1030393
This notice, of course, seems to be very well-traveled, touching by my count four jurisdictions (in Kansas, Texas, Georgia, and published in Illinois). So, something is up here, though whether it is a 74-year-old man being suckered in the twilight of an old birth bond scheme, or rising early to catch the first rays of a new one, I can't say yet. If it is new, with any luck, having notes like this will help in tracking it more positively.
