Real Estate investor reached out after (supposed) death of stepdad’s ex-wife

Posted on r/legaladvice as well, but not sure if this would be a better place to post.

My Stepdad passed away in 2017, leaving behind my mom, and my two younger siblings (both of whom are his biological children). I received a call from a Real Estate investor (not sure how they got my information), telling me that my stepdad and his ex-wife had bought a property together back in the 1990s and that she had recently passed away. Apparently, her two sons are trying to sell the property, but are not able to due to the property also belonging to either my mom or my siblings (He could not specify who had a stake in the property). He was asking for confirmation of information over the phone, such as birth dates (which he knew, but again, wanted confirmation). Now they are needing for my mom to provide her own personal information as well as my siblings, to make sure they have a stake in the property. Seems like they were willing to try to go another route if my mom was not on board with helping out, but it was supposedly easier to get her assistance with this.

I have never heard of this happening, and it just caught me off guard. My mom was not aware of this property. Is this legit, or should I steer away? My stepdad did not have a will. In Texas, if that matters.
