French bank scam

Ah ah.
One more bank scam.
This time ah so European version.
Oh I'm a French bank this and that and I want to offer you 15 million UK pounds, just nevermind that my IP is Italy, and you want me to anser to a Polish email addy, not your work email address.
So we just found this random Gerard Stone that is a relative of yours so do you want to get all this free money?
Free money, sounds all good doesn't it?

Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your
personal ethics.I introduce myself as Richard a staff in the accounts
management Section of a well-known bank here in France.One of our
foreign accounts with holding balance of £15,000,000(Fifteen Million
British Pounds) has been dormant and last operated in the past 5 years.
From my investigations and confirmations, the owner of this account is
a Foreigner by name Gerald Stone died on the 4th of January 2002 on a
planecrash in Birmingham faraway United Kingdom.Since then nobody has
done anything as regards the claiming of this moneyas he has no family
Member who is aware of the existence of either the account nor the
Funds.Information from the National Immigration also states that he was
single on entry into France.I have confidentially discussed this issue
with some of the bank officials and we have agreed to find a reliable
foreign partner to deal with. We thus propose to do business with you,
standing in as the next of kin of the deceased and have the funds
released to you after due processes have been followed.This transaction
is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund is Legitimate and does
not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any othe rIllegal
act.On your interest, let me hear from you.
Mr Richard
