Hi.
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
This is a scam.
Barristers do not conduct this kind of litigation.
Also, if you had won the lottery you would not need to make any payment at all. What they are saying is a nonsense.
Just tell them to make a transfer if indeed you have won.
If you have given them your bank account details then close down the account and open another.
Can I clarify anything for you?
