Goody - someone with the same surname as me has died. As we share the same surname I can claim the fortune, right down to the last 17pence. How nice.
This scammer couldn't even be bothered to make up an identiy for him/herself. They tell me the list of legal services they can offer, but they can't be bothered to tell me who they are (supposed to be). Ah well. Guess it's all a scam then, as usual.
Just delete the email and don't reply. You haven't inherited anything. The scammer just wants to get his/her hands on your money.
