Hi I am what i am, yes, that is a scam email, it's a standard ATM card scam disguised as an inheritance scam.

The scam works in a couple of different ways, this version is where they claim that the Government is giving you money from an inheritance/contract payment, you will have seen in the email that they want to give you the money by giving you an ATM card.

For the victim to get the ATM card, the scammers will require you to send fees to have the card sent to you via courier, the courier fees are highly inflated for such reasons as, they will say that for security reasons, it has to be sent by a diplomatic courier, which costs a lot more than a normal courier, or something similar, you might also be asked to pay taxes when you card is stopped at the airport, general fee requests like that.

The problem is, the inheritance does not exist, the ATM card does not exist and you are dealing with scammers pretending to be from the government and banks.

The ref number in the email, Our Ref: FGN /SNT/STB, has been used in many other advance fee fraud scams, see these Google Results For: Our Ref: FGN /SNT/STB

Remember, if it seems to good to be true, then it is.
