This is a next of kin scam, where the scammer wants you to believe you can get a part of a deceased person's fortune. In most cases the scammer is playing the rôle of a corrupt banker who wants to steal a deceased customers money with your help, for a share of the loot of course. If this was real, you would be helping a criminal to steal, but in this case the scammer will only steal your money by asking you to pay for made up fees to release the money to you. Don't fall for this scam!

Attn: My Dear Friend,
Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics. May I introduce myself as Mr. David Neumann a staff member in the accounts management section of a bank here in London; one of our accounts with holding balance of ?25,549,250.00 (Twenty five Million five Hundred and forty nine Thousand two Hundred and fifty British Pounds) has been dormant.
From my investigations and confirmations, the owner of this account is a foreigner who died long time ago. Since then nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money as he has no family member who is aware of the existence of either the account or the funds. Information from the National Immigration also states that he was single on entry the country. I have confidentially discussed this issue with one of the top officials in the bank and we have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with.
We thus propose to do business with you, standing in as the next of kin of the deceased and have the funds released to you after due processes have been followed.
This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal act.
On your interest, let me hear from you.
Warmest Regards,
Mr. David Neumann.
