Windows 7: Anyone need some money?

I recently discovered that there was a dormant account valued at the sum 7,394,890.00 (Seven Million, three hundred and ninety four thousand, eight hundred and ninety British Pounds Sterling) and after due verification of this account I discovered that the account owner was late.
Maybe the account holder was unavoidably delayed and he'll show up tomorrow. Pretty strict bank if you don't show up on time.

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1

When those things first started a few years ago, I got an email every month it seemed. I could not quite decide what the scam was. I think all the info he asked for was name, address and phone number. So I sent it in and he did call me. The first two calls he was just arranging details, without actually doing anything. I guess he was just building up my confidence. On the third call he finally asked me for a small percentage of the money I would receive as a "Handling Fee". It was about $200 as I recall. It was at that point that I told him to leave me alone and hung up. He still called back a couple times the next week until he finally decided he was wasting his time. == My mother is 85 years old and still lives by herself. Two or three times people have called her and done this to her. They get her to OK a bank debit and take the money straight from her account. We have always gotten it back with the banks help. Hopefully I have impressed upon her to not do it again.
