$15.5 million dollars? I could use 15.5 million dollars.... You're so lucky. I wish I would have gotten that email.

He's probably going to want you to provide your account info, or send him a personal check for a small processing fee. Then he'll use you account number and routing number from your check to set up an online check service linked to your account, then proceed to spend you into debt.

As you already know, this is definately a scam. They may have even used an actual person's death to add to their "credibility."If they really needed to contact you about a large inheiritance from your long lost British man-nanny, they would call you on the phone or approach you in person, especially with this kind of money at stake.

Along the same lines, I keep getting "Chase Bank" emails requesting I update my account info. There are two problems with this. First, I'm not a 85 year old sucker, and second, I don't have a Chase Bank account.

Right... it's a variation of the Nigerian money-laundering scam. I have a whole file full of them.

They can be funny to read, but what is really sad is the idea that somewhere, someone must have fallen for it. All it takes is one.
