Definitely a scam. Typically, what happens is he will ask for your bank account number and/or other personal information. Instead of depositing money in your account he withdraws it from your account. Another angle is that he will ask for money inorder to process the paper work. You send the money and you'll never here from him. Anyway, it won't hurt to give him a call or e-mail him. Be very careful!

It's a scam alright.
My ex got one last weekend. It was supposedly from some lawyer in England saying he had 7.5M Pounds Sterling waiting for her.
All he needed was proof of her identity. There were two links at the bottom of the letter for her to go to. Told her not to click on either of them. Her identy could be stolen in seconds.
I did forget that lawyers in the UK are called Barristers. Should have been my first clue.

Any real letter like that would not come by e-mail. It would be sent registered and certified mail with signiture required.
