Just received this scam into an email I have only ever used for comping - and which incidentally does not feature any part of my name. Advice is to just delete, no snarky responding, because that potentially gives them more info about you.

'This letter is notifying you of the death of my client. I am
contacting you to inform you that a notice has been given by the
bank that if no one comes forward for the claim of the assets of
the deceased that it will be marked as ownerless and subsequently
claimed by the Government.

I am contacting you because you bear the same last name with my
late client.I want to know if you are in anyway related to my
late client.

Please respond with your full name and contact telephone number.

Best Regards,

Adrian March
Attorney at Law'
