If you are unaware of the relative that they're claiming left you an inheritance, it is very likely that this is a scam.

However, the most compelling and obvious reason that this is a scam is that they're asking you to pay money to collect your inheritance. This is not normal or usual. If a person has an inheritance, it is given to them without a fee or charge. Thus, my inclination is that this is a scam. Don't fall for it.

If they won't agree to send the money to you without the fees, you know it is a fraud.

You should report this activity to your state's attorney general's consumer protection/fraud prevention department. They'll perform an investigation.
