Will scam

Email Address:
Attn: John Hurst,

Thank you for accommodating my enquiry, you share the same last name with my late client and your name was stated on the last will and testament as the real next of kin, I believe you are in the right position to stand as the real next of kin, Also you might be related without you knowing, My client was originally from your country and I believe I can work with you; I received a call from Finance house here in Uk notifying me that Mr. William Hurst,deposited a sum of (£1.8m) \"One Million eight Hundred Thousand Pounds Sterling\" in the finance house. However, the bank advice me to provide with the name of the next of kin of the estate, because for the past four years and some months now, the account have been a dormant account and any dormant accounts are usually reverted to government treasure as unclaimed funds after five years.

This is why I decided to seek for whose name shall be used as the next of kin after which I have also contacted you because of the ultimatum of twenty one days from now and pressure from the Finance House which says that if I failed to present the name of the next of kin, the account will be closed finally and redirected to government treasury as unclaimed funds as constituted by federal law on banking industries/finance houses.

First, I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail, On my own part as a lawyer and also the personal attorney to the deceased I will facilitate the necessary documents from the ministry of justice here in London that will prove the Legality of this money, when it is due to be transferred.

I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please endeavour to reply ASAP on your stand in this issue.
