Scam Money Transfers from Lawyers / Barristers

Barrister Anderson Williams Law Firm:
"Wealthy dead client's name: Engr.Mahmood Rollins"

Have you received an email from "Anderson Williams", claiming that he is an attorney for a dead wealthy man who named YOU in his will?  It's a mystery who the dead guy is or why he named you, but you better reply pretty quickly or risk losing millions from the "WILL".  If you are still salivating and eager to fill out the form, we can assume you get scammed frequently, as this is simply another scam to separate you from your money (that which you have left after other scams).
