I like it!

However, anyone familiar with the economic background of my family would
immediately recognize it as a hoax.

An eccentric Hull billionaire who never married is searching for any
living relative that matches his DNA to be the beneficiary of his vast
estate. His genealogy records were lost when the family bible was
mistakenly sold at a garage sale during World War II and all of his
relatives and their offspring have died. He has no known living
relatives. Any relatives that he can find that match his DNA will
inherit his vast estate. He is 97 years old and in frail health. Those
wishing to have their DNA tested may want to contact the Hull DNA Study to take advantage of a discount DNA test.
Of course, this is just a rumor and we have no way of substantiating or
confirming it.
