Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a qualified lawyer happy to help you today.

Don't worry - it is a scam. See this link and scroll down to "bogus phone calls" :

In terms of the money, speak to your bank and ask them to do a charge back on the monies - your bank should be under the consumer voluntary code so they can reimburse you if you have been duped.

I hope this answers your question – if so could you please click 5 stars at the top of your screen, that will give me a rating on the site and I can answer any follow up questions at no extra charge.

Many thanks,

Jim
