Family's $500K inheritance seized by U.S. border officials

An Ottawa man acting as executor of a will says TD Canada Trust gave him "faulty advice" to mail $500,000 in bank drafts to family members in the U.S. — a move that caught the attention of U.S. border officials, who seized the money.

Almost a year later, the money is still stuck at the border. Executor David Saikaley worries the family members may never see their inheritance.

I trusted the bank. I thought they were experts

"It's like this money has fallen into a black hole," said Saikaley.

He was in a rush to send the money, because one beneficiary's health is quickly deteriorating, and he needs to pay a mounting pile of medical bills.
