“Barrister” Baker writes from Nigeria to tell me he is an “attorney at law” (an American title) in London (in the UK) where Barristers operate from chambers not from Solicotors’ offices. He’s either forgotten which country he is really in, or he’s a scammer. No prizes for guessing which is correct. Just delete the email and don’t reply. Mr Baker is a Nigerian advance fee fraudster.

that shares the same last name as yours, died as a result of a

disaster on the 26th December2004 in Sumatra Indonesia.
I am contacting you to seek your consent to present you as the next of
kin to my late client. He has a deposit of Seventeen Million Five
hundred Thousand Dollars (US$17,500,000) left behind.
This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect
you from any breach of the law. If this business proposition offends
your moral values, do accept my apology.
