I’m tempted to sit on my scanner and send this idiot a “A scan copy of your identity”. (Think about it!!)
Can you really imagine a legitimate barrister (or a solicitor) sending out random emails offering to send millions of pounds to an unknown person? Come to that, can you imagine anyone who has millions of pounds, plus a legal adviser, not having a will?
It’s all a load of old cobblers (quaint English phrase). Ignore this scammer, who wants to get his hands on your cash.
