The reader who forwarded me this scam, was amused by the scammer’s email address – firstname.lastname@example.org!! The rest of this email is best (politely) described as garbage. I can’t imagine you were really expecting $15m and I’ve never heard of the Royal Exchange Bank of London (I live in the UK).
Just delete this rubbish and don’t reply. If you do reply you will find a scammer asking you for money.
