John Alberto, "accountant/independent underwriter" in UK, claims to have my (and my Son's) surname from an old file of one of his deceased clients having same surname and fixed deposits of US$3.8 Million. John Alberto offers his help in "repatriating those funds" to me as beneficiary. Somewhat poorly constructed letter (grammatically) but does appear official. It's a very similar letter to many others noted online as frauds/scams.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
