I received a email from Liliane Bettencourt stating that she was going to give me 3,200,000. There was also a letter attached stating that all I had to do was fill out the information and contact her bank which is Barclays in London. I contacted then and they told me that I would have to get a money gram from my bank or the post office in the amount of 550.00 for delivery insurance and I could either open an account with them in the amount of $2,660 or send them my ATM information. Is this legal?
