“Barrister Larry Hunter” writes to me from Seoul in Korea to tell me he is in “Temples Chambers” in Manchester Street, London – immediately showing his total ignorance of the English legal system.
The rest of his email is just as ridiculous. As I’m sure you’ve guessed by now, he is a scammer whose only aim in life is to get his hands on your money, which he will happily take from you to pay his “fees”.
