Will: Receipt for Specific Bequest, but no check
I've received a letter from my stepmother that is enclosed with a Receipt for Specific Bequest. The letter is pretty nasty stuff - "she didn't want you in the will but didn't get to change it", etc. There's no check in the letter. The legal form she wants me to sign and return says "I, <delzhand>, acknowledge receipt of the sum of xxx".
Now, it seems to me that signing this is a pretty bad idea. But I wanted to make some sort of cursory confirmation that it's not normal practice to request a receipt first. I mean, it flies in the face of all legal logic, but it doesn't hurt to ask.
