I am quite certain this is a scam. The saying "if it sounds too good to be true then it probably is" applies emphatically on the internet. Unless you did, in fact, have a very close family member (e.g. parent or sibling) in Pretoria who just passed away, I cannot see this as being legitimate. These types of scams are very common- a "lawyer" in another country advises you of a unfathomably large inheritance, and all you have to do is pay a small "estate fee". That's simply not how estates work, and especially when there are different countries involved. Whenever someone you don't know on the internet randomly contacts you to give you money, then says you have to pay them a (relatively) minimal amount in order to get that amount, at least 95% of the time it's a scam and the money you send will go to some criminal who you'll never see, nor will you see the benefit you were supposed to receive.
