ok thank you

Good morning,

While I wish I could tell you this was real, unfortunately you were right to be concerned. This is indeed a scam. With a real inheritance, a person never, ever has to send money to collect. This is a form of an "advanced fee scam." In an advanced fee scam, the scammer contacts you about a prize, lottery winning, sweepstakes, inheritance, etc. that you are entitled to, but in order to collect, they inform you that you need to send them money. Typically, they want you to wire these funds, since money that is wired cannot be recovered, and is just about impossible to trace. Of course, once you send the money, your money never shows up and you never hear from them again.

Please don't send them any money, and don't have any further contact with them. They are not whom they claim to be.
