Looks like you are the chosen one, the rest of us seem to have missed out on this golden opportunity:-))

He does say 50/50 you don't want the rest of us trying to take advantage of your good fortune. LOL

Clearly yet another scam, but about 4yrs back my elderly father recieved a solicitors letter saying that he was entitled to part of an inheritance from someone he had never heard of but did have the same surname. I told him to be extremely wary and not to send them any money under any circumstances. They did not ask for any up front payment but a couple of months late sent him a cheque for £9000.00.

hmmm, perhaps I'll have the same luck and also inherit from a previously unknown relative :) that would be welcome anytime.
