Another email scam

An email appeared out of nowhere in my inbox today with no message content, just a very long subject line and a dodgy attachment.

The subject reads: "This mail was intended to you only because your surname seems similar to my late client. A client in our Bank died Five Years ago leaving behind Capital amount {US$17.5M}Read the attached copy and get back to me.Thanks Spencer Clayton".

It's hard to believe anyone would still fall for such a lame attempt at social engineering, but I guess there's a sucker born every minute.
