    This is definitely a scam. I received the same email today. Do not respond and DO NOT send any money of any sort. You should never have to pay to receive an estate. Not to mention the odds of it being legitimate are extreme since if it were a factual circumstance worth that much you would receive an actual letter or a visit in person from someone.
