Best Answer

Funds cannot be transferred after the death of the individual to whom they belong. All assets and debts must be entered into probate procdure according to the laws of the state where the deceased was a resident. The exception is assets and property that is held as Joint Tenants With Right To Survivorship or as Tenancy By The Entirety when there is a surviving spouse.

It's a complete scam, don't fall for it. The scam works like this: some funds were approved in your name but you have to pay a fee for them to be transferred into your account. After you pay you never hear from them again, and of course, no funds get transferred to your account.
