In general, Lawyers don't email strangers suggesting fraud, it is not a good way to stay in practise, even if they did work at the UN, but they're actually a free account from mail.ru:

I am a Lawyer by profession and my name is Mark Smith. I am contacting you because you share the
same last name with a deceased client of mine who died few years ago. He left behind a lot of bank
deposits with no will to mention a next of kin. I have been in recent communication with the banks
where he has these deposits and they have made it abundantly clear that I should provide any of his
relatives to come forward and claim his money.
It is my plan therefore to present you as a relative to my late client so that his deposit can be transferred
to you legally by virtue of the fact that you share the same last name and I can easily present you as his
relative. I will make this presentation possible as it is my sole responsibility as the legal Administrator
and I will guide you all the way until his funds are released to you. We shall be sharing the proceed of
this claim equally if you accept to work with me. I will share more details with you upon your positive
response to my email. I hope to hear from you soon.
