It's a typical attempt of the so-called "Nigeria Mafia". They will lure the unsuspecting into paying advance processing fees etc. and then you'll never get anything.
Keep your hands away from it. These mails are a pain in the butt.

Indeed, I received one as well this morning. It is nothing more than one those infamous West African (more than likely Nigeria) scams.

Trash it.......!
