I was recently contacted through email by an attorney in the

I was recently contacted through email by an attorney in the United Kingdom; who asked me to respond to his email. The email stated that he had a client of his in the United Kingdom that passed away some years ago and that he could not give me any more info than that. He stated after looking through some of his clients papers in his house that he saw a paper with my name on it, supposedly. He then used an advanced people search to search that name, and it came back with my email address somehow. He asked what my relation is to this man(his client). I do not have a relation to this man, I do not live in the United Kingdom, and I don't know the person he is referring too. The email seems threatening and a little misleading. Am I Obliged to reply and say I don't know him and am not related to him, or just forget the email and don't worry about replying; since I do not know this person?? I want to know if there's any precautionary tips or Legal recourse or action I might need to take before replying, or any tips I might need to know incase there was a follow up reply? What are the legal standards for something like this?
