This is a short version of a common type of scam: the “abandoned bank account” scam. The scammer, posing as a bank official, has found a bank account full of money that was owned by a foreigner who is now deceased. If you’ll just stand in as next-of-kin, he’ll split the money with you. Alas, there really is no abandoned account and no deceased customer — there’s only a scammer trying to pick your pocket.
