However, UPS, which claims it conducted an exhaustive search for the lost package but still turned up empty-handed, has at least offered to refund the $32 delivery fee.
"It was a total surprise," said Lorette Taylor, the man whose fortune was lost.
"Never in my wildest imagination did I think something like this could happen."
Taylor's brother, Louis Paul Herbert, said they were finalizing the details of her father's will last February and ent to a local UPSstore near Cornwall, Ontario, where he was expecting a package from his sister containing his share of the inheritance in a bank draft. But, according to Newsweek, the package never arrived.
