“Attorney” Bernard Barker is a liar and a scammer.  Why do you suppose a genuine lawyer would send random emails to anyone, anywhere in the world offering to send them millions of dollars???  It wouldn’t happen, would it?  
Mr Barker wants to take money from you by charging you fees. 
Just delete the email and don’t reply.  NEVER open an attachment from someone you don’t know.  I did open the attachment.  It doesn’t contain a virus and I’ve reproduced it below.
Please kindly open the attached file captioned” INHERITANCE LETTER”  and read the full email. This is about the fund left in the Bank by late Adams Kerry(late). I want to present your name as the next of kin to the Bank.
Thanks and best Regards,
Bernard Barker Esq. 27 73 820 2624

My name is Bernard Barker, personal Attorney to late Mr. Adams Kerry,a national of your country who died along with his wife and his Two sons in a ghastly motor accident along M1 express in August 13, 2005 .

My late client left behind a deposit of Ten Million, Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars($10,200,000.00usd) in his domiciliary bank account in a bank here in South Africa.

After the death of my client ,his bankers contacted me as his Attorney to provide his next of kin who should inherit his fortune.

The bankers had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 1996 to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period given to me.
I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin to the Deceased since you are at an advantage as nationals from the same country, so that the proceeds of this Bank Account valued at $10.2 Million Dollars can be paid to you.

We shall both share the fund, 35% to me and 60% to you, while 5% should be for Expenses or Tax as your Government may require, I shall assemble all the necessary Legal Documents that will be used to back up our claim .

I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law.

Please get in touch with me by telephone or email to enable us discuss further.

Best Regards

Bernard Barker Esq.
