They want to name me as 'next of kin' for someone who died and left bags of money with no heir.
The money is all going to go into my account (which apparently I need THEIR lawyer to open on my behalf), for which I need to send my ID.

Once the money is in my account, it will be split 50/50 between me and them... AND they are going to get me to help them invest their share in businesses in my country. The reason I was chosen for such an honor is because I have a reputation for choosing investments wisely.
