    Hello. I recently received this email. I hadn't heard back from them till after the holiday as as if the office was closed. They then gave me a bank address in London to contact with a coded number. Now I received an email from the bank requesting a photocopy of my id. They haven't asked for money yet. I'm leary about giving my I'd for proof of me. Then they will need my bank info which they certainly will not get.

    I wish I knew how to find out if this is a scam. Sure seems like one. Lol. Who Gives Away 3.5 Million Dollars THESE days?

      I also received this email and I´m really not sure if I can trust this. Sounds too good to be true.

      Just a word to the wise! If you actually respond to one of these, more than likely, you will be inundated with many more scam emails. You might as well just create and use an alias account that you can shut off...

      I got one, with a bank DBS BANK INDIA: they will tell you the you must open an account and transfer money ($650) into it to cover account setup and fees. I stopped there, but I presume that they simply keep your deposit and then disappear! I could really have invested the money to do what they claimed to want. Tim

    Good thing I trusted my instinct and checked this on google search. I received the exact letter just now on my email regular inbox. It was separated as junk, and the only reason why I opened it. I do not even know how I received such an email. NO ONE gives money like this.
