Yes - you know the plot for this one. Mrs Husbond is rich, she's dying, she was married with 15 years without a child (why is it always 15 years) - and - surprise - she wants to give all her money to you.
Does this sound likely? No. It doesn't. Mrs Husbond isn't rich, she isn't dying and she isn't a widow. She's a scammer - who is hoping you will fall for her plot and send her money.
