A: A South Dakota attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It isn't fully clear from the description what is going on here, but please be careful if you are being asked for legal fees or banking information. No one can say whether this involves a genuine matter or something suspicious. But be aware that there are commonly used scams out there where people are contacted and told they stand to inherit large sums of money from relatives overseas who recently died, but that they must take certain steps first. If it's genuine, good for you. If it's not, just be careful not to get tricked. Good luck
