It surprises me how many scammers seem to use the name Elvis. Regardless of the choice of nomenclature, this is a familiar type of next-of-kin scam, where you’re asked to pose as the relative of a deceased person, so the deceased person’s bank account can be emptied out. If you play along, the only bank account that will be emptied out will be your own.
