Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I will help you with your question. Did you actually enter the Shell promotion?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

To collect 550,000BP I should do it through a Barrister.

Expert:  Max Lowry replied 3 years ago.
Thanks for the additional information.

This, I'm afraid is a scam which has been going around for a number of years.

Here is a link to an example of the scam being sent to other people. http://www.scambook.com/report/view/12673/THE-UNITED-KINGDOM-SHELL-PETROLEUM-PROMOTION-LOTTERY-AWARD-INC-2011-Complaint-12673-for-$95.00

http://www.hotscams.com/articles/lottery-scam-shell-petroleum-lottery-promotions/

Please do not send any details to these people.

Barristers in the UK will not be involved in any such promotion. Often some person with an air of credence is given as a point of contact. The perpetrators are looking for your details and probably will require you at a later stage to send money.

You should not respond to the email or send any information. This is a scam and you may end up losing money or having your identity stolen.

Good luck.
