Letter stating I was beneficiary to 4.5 million dollars from a person I do not know. He stated because he(the deceased) and I had the same last name and lived in same country that he wanted to use me as a beneficiary and it was all legal...no risk..just had to fax or e-mail him my name and address and reference # which is INNW/PONF 2014/20660 Knew it was a scam, so I googled it and sure enough his name was among many on here.. He also said to keep it private..wonder why?
