I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you're probably not getting that money.

Or, a strong desire to live on the ground floor. :)

A long winded way to get me to reveal my information
for a measly 14.5 Million.

I didn't answer because I thought they didn't offer a big enough incentive. :)
I also realized this wasn't legit since they didn't ask for my Mom's maiden name.!

My dear future billionaires,

Another offer I cannot refuse, landed in my web mail box to-day by -tankomail from @mailbox.sk

Inherited a large sum on a 50/50 basis. But probably won't see a pfennig, a cent, a thaler, a florin!

Good you are my ScamWarner, bob3160,
folks, you read: https://dmjcomputerservices.com/blog/beware-mailbox-almost-full-spam-phishing-attempts/

Hello,
I am a Principal Asset Manager in one of the leading international banks. I respectfully seek your sincere consent in this profitable proposal that i will explain to you.
Nine (9) years ago, precisely on Nov 6th, 2008, an Expatriate Oil consultant/contractor with a Chinese mineral cooperation, deposited a numbered sum of Twenty Million United States Dollars(20,000,000 USD) in my branch valid for twelve calender months. We did not hear from him since then.
However On further inquiries we found out He was involved in an accident which means he died intestate, All paper works in my bank revealed that he did not declare any next of kin or relations. This means that no one will ever come for this money since its been nine years. I can be able to make you the beneficiary of these funds.
For all your troubles I propose that we split the money in half. Once I get your willingness and response I will give you further information on this huge deal, What I require is that you DO NOT betray my confidence.
We should act swiftly on this if we are going to achieve it.
I wait your urgent response
Regards,
Andy

================================================================
He want to give me half of it, why dont he just take it all?

I guess he is just a nice trusthworty guy    ;)

Dear Friend,
"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work". I am an ethnic conflict mediator by training, and as a native interpreter, I also work as a freelance journalist. I regret that I couldn't exploit a more discreet means of reaching you due to time constraint. Please, do not think of my proposal as having 'bogus' traits because of the platform upon which this request is made to you. I was left with no better choice than to stumble on this medium to rech you due to the tight deadline to keep to.
 
I am writing concerning the $2.10 billion granted by a London court as damages for the menace of Oil Spill in (4) oil rich coastal communities in the Niger-delta region. I am convinced that you've enjoyed cordial banking relationship with your bankers over the years, and can receive large payments in your bank account without the authorities raising eyebrows? If you are interested to know the details of this proposition, please indicate by providing your Name , Country and Phone number in your reply.
 
Regards,
Charles Vandi.

Amazing, for 6 years the old title was a great and catchy title.
One person goes off topic and you change the topic. Oh well. it's your topic.
