Fairly standard 419 scam.
There is no special bank account, there is no pile of money.
You will probably find that the named person did die in that plane crash, but that's the only true thing about it.
If you respond you will be asked to pay various fees and costs to try and get the money out. Bribes, legal fees, travel, and if you pay one they'll simply ask for another.
The criminals will simply keep this money and you will never receive anything.
